Following your guide I downed every uber except Laz (not attempted, waiting for waypoint!), Deimoss and Samael, and got almost all trophies.

Currently doing Labs with the following gear. T13 ise a breeze, will try T14 soon. I've got two things to ask:

1. How to get to T14's required 260 resists without losing so much DPS? I have to switch to resist gems from Zann Esu's, hurts a lot.
2. Is there any chance for this spec to Kill Deimoss? If that's possible, I'll try my best.

Before this I've farmed the hell out of the game with my Str Werewolf and 1H Necro, thus I have almost all SUs and most SSUs as well as UMOs available. Playing SP.

Thanks!


you can get lucky a lottery on Unique Jewels by cubing Sunstone of the Gods + Zann Essu = Upgraded Zan Essu with +10 all resists (if lucky, a BIG IF). Lotteried Zan Essus' help cap to 260 without sacrificing too much dps/max resists/sockets. Other than that... same as usual, you have to sacrifice sockets or mo slots for resists.


Yea this. Either lotto'ed zann esu or be content with gems. This is why every source of max res has such huge impact.

@Victor: With gems, your dps will likely get chopped down to ~60% of the full potential, but this isn't a big deal tbh. You can still clear t14-15 in about 30min.
