Before starting the section that begins with CoV says to switch to vit craft boots and belt so I did.

i would only use vit crafted gear for general gameplay if you are dr capped (%50) already otherwise use the RWs

ok if your going to roll vit crafts i would try to aim a bit higher than that. also did you bless the boots? because if your playing the challenge ladder the rolls look very low for shrine roll+ bless. if you are dr capped actually replacing megalith and truce with nice crafts isnt a bad option but if you do remember to try to roll some fhr jewels and socket them in the boots. I recommend zod crafted jewels for more spell damage and for the optimal jewel try to aim for

%fhr
decent %fire spell dmg/ magic spell dmg
flat life/ %vita/ % energy i think the vit and life are best
resist if you need to cap still

superbeast has immense fhr issues that i find the best way to fix is through crafted jewels.

good luck!!!

edit: at some point try to familiarize yourself with the speed calculator in the tools section so you can calculate the breakpoints needed. median xl has different breakpoints than d2lod so its good to know these when rolling gear.

+ fire cannonade ammy with this build. After getting a good chunk of signets and many charms, I swapped to full energy build to take advantage of energy factor to spell damage. You kill stuff so quick, and with LaeK on spire you can jump into mobs and stay full health.

atm a nice pair of gloves all around but the proc is generally wasted on casters but not for this lazydin. Only issue is that without terror strike im not nearly as tanky as i would hope to be so farming areas like duncraig are proving to be challenging. im playing more or less untwinked ie not using my other char to help him get charms so ive collected most of the basic charms at this point. but where before i would feel pretty comfortable farming dunc with the terror strike version now the survivability isnt there. Once you get the proc chain going however i think the overall farming speed is miles ahead of the traditional lazydin and its beautiful to see like 300 punishers flying all over the place :D the character was able to far Tran athula by just kiting and relying on laek way undergeared and just obliterates it with the proc chain. does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on what i can do to make the character tankier? ill post screens of my stuff later but ill list my gear below

but when farming the shower of rocks proc is pretty noticeable and speeds up the clear substantially not to mention the defensive nature of the ability. if i did ditch the deadfall maybe id consider moing the bow differently to go full retard on spell damage

i would suggest some cc in terms of raising tankiness"" (maybe im completely wrong, but im trying to use some earthquake proc on my boots (havent crafted one proper yet) and studying other procs that can help freeze/another cc mobs (maybe with my merc) so that i can clear toraja safly etc... (atm i cant farm toraja at all cause my edyrems keep dying in no time... ive tryied telestopming heads"" etc a few times, but it goes very slow, atm i have 300-360k defence w/o terror (btw i havent completed all the suggestion from this guide yet, like having 3 items from set and could be just too weak for toraja grind... dunno, yet i fire cannonade all tran athulua with basic equipment facerolling completely + clear k3kba in no time with path of flames from amu as well as Dcows in either way = uniques + sets/shrines + random stuff)

Spent 15 hours over the past 3 days farming Toraja. Have not seen a single great rune. Is there something I can use besides path of flames? Really killed my desire to play Median at all :(

this ladder it's much easier to get a path of flames amu (spawns with higher slvl too) also, don't use the set pieces. they're actually pretty rare and not that good. I mention that somewhere in guide but there are a lot of references to the set pieces that I just didn't bother to clean up (was expecting sigma sooner XD)
