Currently sitting on 80k-120k or so poison dmg with 2x Raptor on switch and all gear modded for max poison dmg. Still wearing full TU.
This is where I start to hit a slowdown in dmg output.
Are there some gearing tips to transition from TU4 gear to Sacred items?

. It's the single biggest damage boost you can get before blacktongue/astro set. At that level of damage you should be fine with leveling to 120 to be able to farm for it. From there work on your survivability and just spam Dunc.
Some poison runes while you're at it wouldn't be a bad idea either
Yes, I'm not sure how fast NotArmory updates, but meanwhile I had Wyrd set complete and also made that helm. Together with the RW gloves. Making sure I have only one source of flas poison dmg.
Right now I've been farming Teganze for a couple of hours. I have a fully loaded teganze charm, but only received four venomous essences and there's not enough people online to actually exchange some essences for other types.
I also made one Demhe flail, but I don't remember what to MO on it. Wasn't it IAS instead of Poison Spell Dmg?
Don't have a blacktongue yet so I crafted a Gilded Shield with -enemy poison res to get to -200 pierce. Hoping to find a few more venomous essences soon so I can ditch the shield and instead use

. I know, it's not the best but it works really well with Demhe without an alternative and I can easily trash Viz-Jun with it. Fast farmer that way with zero deaths. Not sure about the usefulness of the Harvest proc though.
All of my setup seems to work pretty well now without Blacktongue. I am not using optimal gear yet but with -199 pierce I am able to all bosses I tried so far. Did everything except Astro, Nymyr and the Spirit World. And I skipped Yshari because I hate the maps and the gear collecting.
Anyway, some advice on MO'ing the Demhe flail are very welcome
