What's your breakpoints like? You could respec into Rapture, since you have way more pierce than needed (I think). The signets makes a fair difference. A lot, if not all of your gear hasn't been MO'ed either. That's like an easy 80-120% lightning damage that you are missing out on. Honestly the lack of MO's is borderline a crime, you should get that fixed, it would help a lot.

I don't know how your pierce would look if you respecced, you should check that beforehand. I believe you need 135 lightning pierce. The signets would do a lot but the MO's should help. Armory doesn't show changes in level requirement, not sure if I can see the MO's yet.

190 pierce is way over the top. you only need 130 for most mobs and 170 for uber bosses. I'd sacrifice pierce for survivability. you could probably exchange the armor for a Kra runeword as an option. you can also consider

I'd stay with Scourges for as long as possible. As others have said, 190 pierce with Euphoria is way over the 135 mark for mid game farming. You can afford to trade some of that pierce (55 pierce to be exact) for more lightning spell damage and EF. Those crafts are acceptable so your next step should be crafting good jewels. You're also missing some charms as well. One that is really beneficial to you right now is Silver Seal of Ureh, and it's a free charm for paladin so get that asap.

You can also try farming Teganze instead of Duncraig. Scourges will shield you so you'll have an easier time in there as long as you keep resummoning.

Nice, now just keep ur eyes on BP`s. 1st - FCR must be 194+. Its very crusual for damage output, so its directly affect ur farm/clear speed. 2nd - FHR. Not so important as dmgoutput (if u 1hko its not important capped ur FHR or not), but if u survive 1st/2nd hit u need to have possibility to blink out/chug pot.

Dont be hurry. Try out now "as it is" to farm dunc.
ATM im can farm only dunc and fauzt. Dunc - easy, fauzt - much harder, seems like im not enough pure dmg (as i said before - lack of normal jews).
Teganze for me not comfortable for farm (hoplites dies vary fast. Scourges pretty much tankier and simply more, 15 instead of 5).
Triune - assburnpain for me :lol: Becouse of resists/absorb on burning ghosts to all my dmg, and they are most dangerous mobs there.
