Well, I've done all the ubers listed by wulf, attempted to do others but kinda failed.
At Uldy and Void it seems the dmg isn't enough; Laz almost always 1 shots me (I've tried a Vita build, and the usual one).
Here's my char: https://tsw.vn.cz/char/Chelutz
Buffed I get to 11-22k dmg (something like that). Will
Gharaniq

Any thoughts? Have any of you tested the other bosses not mentioned here?

What gear did you use on those? The BiS one? Because I feel the set is not enough.

Hi, Wulf! Thx for this amazing guide, as always perfect! :)
Want to make some notes, that a noticed while playing with this guide, hope they will be usefull. There are only my pieces of mind, master Wulf will do whatever he want 8-)
1) Using perf. diamonds before Runemaster.
At the early game before Runemaster there no difference between KO runes and perf.diamonds, however diamond much easier to be collected a lot. They will cause a lot of damage at the start because of scaling Lion Stance magic dmg bonus with Strength. Also it will help to wear powerful gear earlier. Obvious but not mentioned point. It will be very good to mention it in Milestones "Before Starting".
2) Put down information about necessary rune containers.
In my mind, it will be helpful, if all necessary runes will be listed, that should be collected, in one place (maybe also in Milestones "Before Starting": these runes are should be collected at the start, these ones - for the endgame, these couple - for jewelcraft). Not very important, but maybe will be helpful for somebody :)
3) 5% ls rings at the start - early game.
15-20% mf is very good, but 5% ls is very important, as for me, than your dmg become good enough. It will be great to find rings with mf and ls simultaneously. 10% ls on 2 rings will guarantee much better sustain. In additin there can be %aa, aa, lightning pierce etc.
4) What about Scarab of Death?
I don't see this one amazing Amulet with huge combat speeds (ias, hr, cast not so important) and 25% elem. res. It is not so good at all because of -5% pr, but it will be very good to use it with Erawan or/and Truce.
5) Anak without MOs for ias.
You can skip ias MOs and safe 8 lvls, if you will use jewel with 15 ias, think about it :-D

Horned Helm (Sacred)

Defense: (2175 - 2633) to (2346 - 2840)
(Barbarian Only)
Required Level: 100
Required Strength: 451
Item Level: 105
Lion Stance Does not Reduce Your Physical Resistance
+60 Attack Rating per Character Level Above 105
1% Chance to cast level 10 Snake Bite on Striking
+(90 to 130)% Enhanced Defense
(1 to 15)% to Strength
Elemental Resists -15%
(1 to 20)% Magic Find
Socketed (4)
something worth considering for this build? Seems it would open up at least 5 skill slots with Tenacity no longer being needed as well as allowing us freedom to not worry as much about phys res on gear in general. Any thoughts?

1) the diamond idea is cool but lvl 1-90 is so fast and easy that i dont think its worth the space.

2) i did mention the rune vessels. and i recommend picking up *all* runes. its already written under "tips before starting"

3) ls% doesnt help vs bosses and has minimal impact for farming; you already never die. i think 40mf benefits people more. and you dont have the luxury of "many affixes" because some people wont even find mf rings. its rng, so its better to stick to ONE affix that is best, which imo is mf in SSF playthrough. by the time you hit fauzt, ripstars will start dropping and that rare ring will be gone.

4) ias and fhr will not help ww at all. you could pickup a blue amulet and add 20x resist MOs for 35all res without the -5pr penalty and it would already be better than scarab :P

5) crafted ias jewels are somewhat "rare" so i dont advise using them in a temp weap like anak. lvl 105-115 is a very vulnerable moment where ACs are stretched; i remember only have 5-10 rolls total when i could make anak. not everyone will find ias jewels in that many rolls.

tenacity will always be needed as long as your phys res isnt 50 (which it never is). i try to stay away from 0 dmg helms like this one.
it basically reads "15phys res, 1500-2000ar, 8%str, negative res". very weak helm imo. ar isnt rly a problem if you keep an eye on it.

Spell damage will not affect Stormblast, only -% lightning resistance will help it deal more damage. Be mindful that "Ignore Target's Defense" no longer works on bosses.
