(Defense and Damage are without Spirit Guide Buff.)

I've been grinding a bit, farmed a few %Attribute Charms with other characters and stopped putting points into Overkill (19).
Right now it feels like I am close to the point where Damage, Attack Rating and Mana/Life leech synergize extremely well. Also got myself those Abandoned Crafted Gloves (check for yourselfes if they are good or not, they were better than TU imo).

I got 21 pts in Mountain King which are probably not worth it since Daedalus is mostly taking care of Attack Rating and Life, but I don't know where my points would be better at. Maybe getting a second Wolf or more points into Spirit guide for a smooth transition from Runemaster into Dominance.

Currently I am grinding XP to reach 115 and the next tier of Ubers, it's probably worth to farm Creature of Flame for a 5% leech charm.

Mountain King should be 1pt because you get some benefits on soft points.

Use those points elsewhere in Wolf Stance, more overkill (I've done 20-25 because of mana cost to number of axes but the more axes = more condensed hits per throw, so it depends on your interest). More wolves can be helpful with Spirit Guide because more wolves = more likely to be in range for the buff + more doom damage from their debuff.

Also, check the ZOMG recipe in the cube recipes page. You can make a set of rare gloves ilvl 1 before crafting and not lose much. You can make basically those same gloves but lvl 40 requirement for an extra ~50 levels of MO space.

That (and my lazyness) was one of the reasons I didn't brothered to go futher in labs tiers.

I doesnt prevent leech, it just gives enemies leech resistance, so you leech less.

Why investing so much in Ancient Blood ? Max life comes on soft points and attack speed is not that hard to reach correct breakpoint on.

On the other end Spirit Guide seems like a better option.

A Median XL guru... a true book of knowledge
many things changed, mostly depends how overkill aoe has changed, if it is very narrow (more suited for single target) then it is gonna be awkward to farm with

With the buffs it's quite possible, but it's an entirely different build. It will require some testing, hard to tell stuff from just looking at the patch notes.
