Also, even with Wolf Stance, im still getting only 1% Block Chance ... so whats the point of a shield that doesnt block?


As per usual MO jewelry with resists / dr

yep. mo gives you res to your jewelry. also dont rely on block before you have charms as you cant get max block witouth them. rely on defense instead. chance uberskills accordingly.

Little typo in the early game paragraph under leveling

" below items can carry you to destruction till A5 destruction just upgrade items with Arcane crystals you get."

If they can get you to act 5 destruction, the use of saying destruction twice becomes irrelevant. Just wanted to let you know that was there :) Other than that the build is fun

I am about to try this, as it looks fun and I have not done a melee build.
I am just getting back into D2 and Median XL, What are some things with leveling and gearing that would be helpful for me to look out for?

The guide tells you what equip to use, I'd say you should keep an eye on your character level in order to complete the levels challenges: Level Challenge 1 and Level Challenge 2. Also could help knowing what comes out of the gift boxes depending on what character are you playing: http://median-xl.wikia.com/wiki/Griswold%27s_Treasure
You will find other useful info in the Documentation: https://docs.median-xl.com/ (use the upper and lateral tabs to navigate it)

Am i supose to max Iron Spiral? or leave it at lvl 1?

Edit, as i see now u gonna leave it at lvl 1, but then my question is about the "Cooldown removed at base lvl 6" cuz now, as i level up, (currently lvl 44), Iron Spiral is at level 4 and the cooldown seems to interrupt the way of playing at this stage, any tips?

You have to put 6 points in it, so the cooldown gets removed. After that you don't put more points in it, because it will only increase mana cost and lightning damage which is not really needed in this build.
Now this build is death
