You will have to craft them. The barb cannot get those items from griswalds chest.

Farm uniques from Mephisto or Nithalik turn them into arcane shards, gamble or find the base, cube the base + 2 arcane shards and oil of

Trying to see where I can improve on my build. I'm still having quite a hard time doing most of the uberlevels. I'm going Runemaster since i'm no where near 500 signets so no max block. I also don't know how I'm supposed to get enough Life on Strike with my Runeword on my sword that's why I went with the Honorific sword shown (Also, i desperately need a belladonna potion so I can max Daedulus. I forgot that attack rating was important and was gonna try Protector Spirit for damage. Bad Idea lol). I know the guide recommends a lot of Sacred Uniques for lategame, but I even having farmed destruction Kurast 3000 and a several other uber levels, I have found only ONE sacred Unique and it was a damn Druid Helm. Are there certain places inparticular that are better for finding Sacred Uniques or something? I was also thinking about crafting a shield to use instead of Invictus, because I already have plenty of Damage reduction, and I need more life on strike + maybe a nice on attack mod.
I don't know I'm just kinda at a point where I don't know how to improve without getting super lucky and getting some SUs. Plzhlpguis
Also, I didn't know if I should refrain from making my own thread for this since it follows this guide as closely as possible, but if I should be making my own thread for this please let me know and I'll GTFO

your best bet is to keep playing. you dont have many charms yet. those are biggest improvement you can get. also use that gehenna instead of that honorific and try to get deadalus. those helps you alot allready. invictus is the best shield you can get since you can use wolf stance witouth losing DR and it provides all we need. Guide gives many recommendation about sacred items for late game but you are at the moment just starting early game and also you are playing on single player where you cant get items that easily. K3K , Duncraig, TA, Fauzt are good places to farm but i rly think you should focus on those charms first.

I guess this confirms that I am on the right path.I just need to go farm for a belladonna potion and go brute force some more charm quests until I get what I need. Thanks for the reply!

Been playing a varient of this for a couple weeks now having fun. My only question is why the Toraja's Champion. Is it just for the 10 life on striking and if so is that end up healing you a lot? Im still using invictus

How does this build deal with mana consumption? I'm using a mount arreat variant build and it just eats mana like crazy. is this just because I don't have a lot of charms yet?
