Crash wrote:edit: just read through, really really not a fan that you say "just play deathgaze to level". whats the point? Stampede and lion stance is extremely strong. just put a sapphire in your axe and you're good to go. You should really consider that part. Overkill is really bad early on, but stampede is more than enough for most things, and overkill vs act bosses and such.
I see you went with lion stance. I've got most ubers recorded on video up to the 115 besides a few that I struggled with phys res so far. Let me know if you want those.
edit2: you should also really toss in 6 points into stampede, there's no reason not to. It's a much wider aoe skill and better for general farming once it picks up more damage through the 110-120 stages to be comfortable compared to overkill's damage. Screaming eagle is also a very useful skill for bosses, I'm not sure why you skipped over that one. Overkill already does a ton of damage around 50 axes, and slowing boss movement speed to allow your axes to comfortably hit, sounds like you might be overlooking it (I didn't max it, but enough for a decent duration like 8 seconds ebcause the speeds pick up from soft points)
Thanks for the suggestions!
I'll probably change that leveling portion, as you're totally right that there's a way to use stampede for the time being. I just dislike the way it works so I'd probably ditch it as soon as I could.
The stats on screaming eagle, especially the duration and slow, leave much to be desired IMO. You'd have to pump a lot of points to make it worth using and what I've found to be much better is to use 5x ber runes for bosses. 25% slow is max on bosses so you can save 15-20 skill points just by doing that.
Yeah lion stance is almost too good to pass up, the damage at max is bonkers and it pairs well with max str. I've tried wolf stance but my damage was cut in half and I didn't leech enough.
