Iotss is pretty defense based uber, physical damage, so you can postpone doing it for a bit, get few other charms first.
In general this version of build with wolf stance has less defense initially than bear, because defense depends on hard points in spirit guide (bear gives less defense per level but it is per soft point so you have more early). But as you get more levels and charms, you get +max skill levels, and spirit guide bonus starts to catch up, in the end your defense should be about the same as bear stance version of the build.
hi aerial, thanks for the guide i am a newish player so i am learning a lot still. i am following it and doing okay, however i feel like im struggling with damage at this point. killing some of the 120 ubers is painfully slow. i google one of those xbow necromancer videos and they are killing the same bosses at 10x my speed. quov tsin especially since i swap so much gear to hit the resist/absorb breakpoints (including using the TU crystal sword since i dont have 60+ dr jewelry). is there some giant damage boost ill get soon? i have been using every weird shrine ive found on a labrys but havent gotten that juicy roll yet, but tbh my damage is so low in some of these that i dont even know if it will help that much. atm im just farming the easier ubers trying to get trophies/perfect rolls.
regarding the triune uber charm, what cycles do i cube with it? from what ive googled it looks like i want 4x vitality GCs... I am thinking of just using a bunch of bad cycles just to have one in the mean time, then when i get a bunch of the exact cycles i want ill kill lucion again for the real deal. also, does the golden cycle have a max use since it doesnt have a +level req? or could you theoretically cube like 100 of them to the uber charm? seems unlikely but just wanted to make sure.
regarding tenganze, i have killed a bunch of these guys and havent found a runestone/essence, so i do not know how these work. do the runestones give different bonuses to your charm? do you have any quick tips on farming this place quickly? its kinda a nightmare right now. they die fast but if im not careful or get unlucky i die very quickly. maybe i could swap on some of my quov tsin gear and just afk face tank it all... maybe should try that...
havent attempted kabraxis yet, and the one time i was patient enough to whack quov tsin for 30 minutes i died in the last hallway before the kingdom of shadow boss, so i dont know how ill do against him.
regarding jewels for runewords - what do you look for on these? i assume you want at least %AR and IAS, hopefully with flat life or more stats, but just wanted to make sure.
last question (sorry for so many), what gear am i looking for in the end game? do you have any plans to add an "endgame gear" section to this guide?
thanks again for all the info and help.
