I'm loving the playstyle of this build but severely lacking damage for where I feel I should be at. I cant work out if it's because I have done something wrong with my gear, if I don't have enough energy (perhaps too much strength at this point and should have stayed at tu3?), etc etc. I also easily get CREAMED by being out of position, although I think that's a general paladin thing until blessed life helps out.
I leveled the character as sumodin and switched around 108-109, using mostly TUs. Looking at the guide it seems reasonable to start crafting if I start finding bases, but should I really be struggling at this point still in TUs?
EF is ~145
The boots are leftover, theyll be fixed soon. https://tsw.vn.cz/acc/char.php?name=Theometra
hopefully shows gear, although it's been bugged for me looking at other people. I'm halfway through MOing stuff, but it feels like maybe that can't make up for the problem that I'm having. Is it just a matter of get through to 115, start farming shrines and crafting some gear with -fire res on it and increasing damage that way, or is there something glaring that I'm missing in the short term?
As an example, Sunless Sea is a hell of a grind at the moment, I have to take it EXTREMELY slow or I just get crushed. How much defense are people sitting at around this level, and how much difference does it make? Also, I have no chance at all to kill akarat in time at the moment.
Last season I played xbow necro primarily and barb, and while I enjoy this character's playstyle a lot more the damage difference feels really apparent at the moment... I'm hoping it's a pebcak issue that I can fix!
