Im gonna try to fuck around with crafted axe and see how well can they roll, lot depends on that.
-3 res runes definitely synergize with this build and it has some potential Doesn't need to even be based on ele weapons.
But right now not playing barbarian.

Going strong this ladder with starting 2h barb but one thing is that bothers me is the lack of SSU or SU items that are usefull for this build. Seems like they are easier to get than the great amount of shrines neede for the gear.

Crafts are very basic, you don't roll for any specific pierce, so they are exact opposite of hard to roll. Finding specific su is hard. Ofc unless you mean trading, and buying some crappy unique nobody wants for few tg, vs buying shrines that everyones values early on. This build is more focused on solo self found progression.

You can't craft them. There are only a handful of items that roll +elemental resists (~20 at a guess), and some are class specific.

Suggest checking the tu, sacred and set items pages. Just run a text search. Most items are expensive, though, due to their effectiveness in labs.

"Seems like SUs are easier to get than the great amount of shrines neede for the gear."

Honestly just farm k3k with barb and you will be swimming in shrines. And it's so easy to Farm, you can even use bear stance due to 100% undead enemies.

I'm hearing reports that with new flat AR from daedalus, we are getting easy very high AR, ~70k total (instead of being at around 20k).
That is pretty decent buff, should feel comparable to pre nerfed vise grips.

Always socket runes for the Runemaster defensive bonus. Aerial lays this out as follows:

Sockets: weapon - JAH, chest if TU - JAH, rest: MAL/GUL/LO/PUL for resists, SHA - IAS, LEM - EXP, LAH - 3% all stat (strongest)

If you are using any runewords, try and craft Lem jewels with 2%str/vit and/or life (https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/cube#idx6)
