it seems very promising. screaming eagle works very nice. i feel like both ss/poison or smax screaming eagle+ele are possible combos. but man, my hands hurt. just spend 1 1/2 hours on the new barb and its so awkward to play. maybe its a build more suited for piano players or i have to come up with new hotkeys.

At the moment I am at 95 with almost everything at level 4. At night I am walking and soon I will be in hell, at the moment it seems more efficient with the wolf, I will try to try the lion when I find the right helmet. It looks better anyway but it's just my impression

I'm running it. Damage is kind of lacking. Looks like poison may be better/easier. The end-game items required to kill all the 125's+ are just incredibly expensive.

Im currently running an overkill variation but I am pure phys and using wolf stance.

Edit: I also have 71/29% on leech and my hp will go from 3-10k in .5s.

Im using full hunter set with taha helm, crafted gloves and wormtongue belt + 2 ripstar and an oracle ammy.

10k avg phys, all breakpoints, 10k life, max block, 110k def with titans buff up. Doing pretty well.

https://tsw.vn.cz/acc/char.php?name=sfp here is armory, im currently str bugged right now im switching a ring on and off until i get ~3 more lvls in case it bugs out

Im also looking for some advice on what might be better than hunters set, right now its giving me 700% dmg dex scaling and allowing me to be max block. I almost feel like using the set is BIS when you think about the fact youd need like 1-2k tg for the definite upgrades.

seems like a viable alternative. Have you already tried duncraig? Did you defeat the Uber easily?

1-2k tg? What do you have in mind to reach this level of investment?

I can list upgrades:

Weapon: Ophiophagus or Griefbringer
Shield: Warpath (Xis), Ancient's Legacy or TU Bronze Shield (It's your choice here. I would rate the order they are here)
Head: Idol of Rygnar or FalXis Helm (i'd go with the former)
Armor: Rebel (xis)
Boots: Knigth's Grace or Winderunner (your choice)
Rings: Ripstar
Amulet: Beads of the snake queen
Belt: Abandoned Craft or Black Void
Gloves: Hammerfist

This doesn't reach to 500 tg... Some of them can be farmed without spending any tg. Unless you want to use some fancy things like Arrogance that isn't BIS in my opinion the set can be replaced with some effort. He's strong for sure and can carry you to 130... I believe you can even kill Uldy with him... But don't understimate the ewd Ophiophagus can bring to the table or the power of 15 more axes to Overkill.

SSU Balanced Axe or Griefbringer as said above for sure. Which ever one you choose though will determine a lot of the other gearing though i think. Im still trying to figure out a best Shield myself because as good as Ancients Legacy would be that Str Req is a bit intimidating to say the least.

Ive run the Set on my Poison setup right before i got the SSU Balanced Axe and it did very well there and im pretty sure im gonna be forced to respec into Overkill for things like Brimmtown.

If you are going to do any Xis RW weapon go for SharkXis... Forget about Manitou... The 100 to all attributes looks good, but it isn't. 100 Str and Dex would be good if you could scale your dmg with both... But for throw there are two ways to scale through dex... Hunter Set and Ophiophagus and both lock the weapons slot making it impossible to have Manitou. Since you won't be dual wielding since shield is hard to skip go for SharkXis... But If I were you I would go for a cheap Ophiophagus. 25% dex to ewd is really good.
