Is the gear in the endgame section absolutely BiS or there are SSU that are better but werent included since its SSF build? Is this build capable of solo'ing Deimoss with the best gear?

The Gear mentioned is BiS.
Only other option is getting a Azurewrath and build around it.
Number #1 Barb on ladder still has his Gear shown.
But summed up it's stack Periapts of Life on everything.

From my experience Azurewrath build has more survivability but lower damage. Ultimately if you can survive all content without Azure its probably not worth the investment, unless you're flexing.

The gear mentioned in the guide was indeed BiS at the version it was written for. I unfortunately do not have any free time to play and see if there are any adjustments to BiS, but I would assume it being the same.

Changes to eagle stance and nephalem spirit, i think it still looks pretty good. Thoughts anyone?

Yeah. Worth it if you're not starving for defense.

The whole idea is to be able to kill things without dying. If you get to a point where you're overshooting the "not dying" part past the point where you're comfortably making things die, then you can definitely sacrifice a bit of that overshot towards making things die faster.
If defensive skills are not necessary to survive, by all means, make the change!

Nope.

This is still a "piss in the wind that's always coming from the west" build.
Who knows, maybe IS is better now, you should try it!

I played this build again for 2.3, and it's stull in a great place. I use many runewords for the build as the guide suggests, so i happily stayed in nephalem spirit and never felt like i needed runemaster. However i basically always used 1-point bear stance to cap resist. Eagle isn't very appealing in lower in content either, as this build slaps and doesn't need the extra damage anyway.
