Would you be willing to share your gear/ skills? I am in A5 NM with T4 TUs and I'm struggling in Nithalak's Temple.

Are you guys maxing out death pact? The original guide doesn't mention it and its tooltip is a little lacking in detail.

Specifically: what do hard points in the skill actually do? At level one it says:

Deathlord - (Based on points in the melee tree) - 46% tcd (Max 500%)

Current skill level: 1, Physical Damage +24%
Next skill level: Physical damage +26%

Synergies:
Improved effect per base level
Any other melee skill: Increased TCD

So.. what is the "Improved effect per base level"? Do I just put one point in it then rely on melee skills to increase the TCD? Does the improved effect per base level increase the amount of tcd per melee skill point or something? Based on the physical damage alone it doesn't seem at all worth the investment.

I think it's because it's categorized as a Throwing weapon which overrides the Dagger-Class portion.

Improved effect per base level means you get increasing returns I believe. As the Death pact that missing as the guide not been updated for v1.1

You need high physical damage and high leech, 100+%ll is no problem.

carnage instantly heals you to full, parasite works weird, i think because of high dmg conversion to magic.

Thats a reason i use 2hand scythe and no tiny dagger ;)

Nothing weird about it, just carnage does a lot more physical damage. Carnage is 85% wd, converts 30% and multihits (3 times, i think?). Parasite is 70% wd, converts 50% and doesn't multihit. So one attack with carnage does ~178.5% wd as physical, while one attack with parasite does 35% wd as physical. About 5 times more damage to leech from.
