Hey 2 thingies:
Here is the Ranking System i use for my builds on a scale from 1 to 10 :


Here the 1 is red and the 10 is green but in the "Table of contents" you used red for both the 1s and 10s.



26. 1.3. Die Hard - Crane Stance barbarian - KS:8 S:10 Ge:9 F:9 Ga:9 E:9 Build rank: 9 Jump at the miniguide!

And here the build rank is in red too which is not consistent with the others miniguides.

On the "Die Hard" barbarian build, what is the source of the 50%DR? Looks solid, I wanna start a fresh barb for this.

depends on the gear you choose and what stance. in some instances, yo udo get 50% dr with gear and/or bear stance, but mostly you're using crane stance and relying on gear.

Been skimming through your old Omega compilation. Are the barbarian builds ther still viable, like the "terroblade" one, or "ares"? I'm going to make a few dual wielders. Throwing barb is kind of... good for farming only?

i have removed all dual wielder builds from the compilation a few patches ago . they are no longer viable because there are no skills left that encourage using 2 weapons instead of 1h weapon + shield or 2h weapon . the benefits of holding the second weapon equipped are too small as not all benefits apply to your attacks , you also don't proc from that weapon . dual wielding skills were broken (not working as intended) , so they were removed . i don't think they will return very soon , but if/when they will return , i will for sure update the old builds .

the throwing barbs are good for anything , same as any other type of barb build .

hello , the miniguide also specifies for sockets "-requirements jewels" . craft those jewels and socket them in your gear


https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/cube

zod crafts can spawn with up to -10% req. , Ort crafts can spawn with up to -14% req.

gain charms that provide flat stats and %stats

you can use some "in between" crafts first , between the early game gear honorifics and the final crafts . you can MO those "in between" crafts with extra -%requirements mo's . you will replace them with the final crafts when you will get more charms in your inventory . those"in between" crafts don't have to be godly , as you will replace them anyway , they just need to be better than the early game gear .

you can also try the "lol crafts" (low ilvl crafts) as "in-between crafts" , as they have a lower level requirement and more MO space on which you can add -%requirements mo's

you can get at least half the charms with just the early game gear on

good luck !

Hey Chuck, im currently using a Bow Druid (Strenght based) and Im struggling in Terror (lvl 65 atm). I've just checked your miniguides and i found that in your Strongbow druid guide you based your early game on Dex... is it so much better? i currently have some T6 (been forced to drop all my stats on STR to carry the bow + -%req jewels), and i feel like i'm not doing enough damage nor tanking enough, problably because im building like shit.
What numbers should i look up for in early game for the druid bow skills?
