I did last season, but I stopped at 130 or so (not because of lack of damage or progress, but rather just stopped playing). It was very effective, and good equips were very cheap and easy to find (

I ask because I'm currently at 139, with pretty good gear (I'm missing only lamha and maybe spirit Walker) and damage seems pretty lackluster for scos

it might have a very slight edge on bosses (and not all of them), but the farm sucks even with skylord

Yea, that's above what I had. If I were to guess, it would be either you don't have enough pierce (hard to believe, ump usually has excess pierce), or Lemures just don't hold up that much against scos.

I see many guides for builds that can farm Fautz. That's a very low bar. What gear and setup would be able to clear t7-t10 labs with this build?

UHM is now very strong as starter char for early day ladder (can lvl up to 140 and do most of 120-125 uber with very basic gear due to free pierce and high subtain from sanguine convenant) but damage from bloddthorn is very bad for endgame content, even with BiS gear.

Okay. Fair enough. I really wish the devs would do more to enable builds like this one to succeed into endgame content.

Few question :
Why max Grim Presence ?
Why radiance set-up is no longer an option ?

superbeast gives you fire/cold spell damage based on how many skill points you have in the ritualist skills so more points in grimm presemce means more fire spell damage
