it's hard to be worse than a chuck build, so you'll need to give more information about where you're struggling.
Not home ATM, so can't show stats, but I'll try to explain as much as I can.
1. Damage output is significantly worse. I went from 4k WD to around 1K, and that's including all my active/passive skills. I do hit enemies as hard, but it feels like it doesn't get as much AoE as I used to have with Pestilence.
2. Defense went up like crazy (from like 60k to 350k), but I got barely no life leech now. Before, I struggled cause I couldn't keep up with enemies. Even though my Life leech was great, enemies hit harder. Now, it's even worse. No life leech means I can kill about 10 mobs in Act IV Destruction before getting bodied gradually and losing without being able to leech. I figure I can simply reset my mystic orbs with an offline tool to give myself more leech, but what purpose does it have if I can't do enough damage?
3. I feel like I have to play cat and mouse to get a minimum of survivability. The reason I started Melee Necro was to compensate from the fact I was playing range with my Unholy Pal. I wanted to be able to rush through ememies, hit hard and life leech hard. I don't feel like I'm getting to my goal with this build, unless I'm doing something wrong.
I'm sure you've put a lot of time in this build and I appreciate that, but I followed everything in your guide for mid-game and I feel lost. I'm not sure how I can save it, except maybe going back to Chuck's build, which I kept the items just in case.
Thanks for taking the time to read and help me Aero. This game's dope and I respect your work on this build
