Ive only been playing median since sigma, and I started with a hammerzon but found more gear for a pouncezon, i have the SU maiden pike, and am aware of greater runes but the acronym sots eludes me. What are/is sots if you don't mind helping out a noob.

dont think anything in the game beats the efficiency of harbringer druid/sammy sword on p7/p8
best untwinked and cheap/budget farmer is summon barb by far, just so happens they are the most reliable class to clear the entire game content within 10 days of the season also.
This. If stormblast or ancients hand isnt balanced or flat out removed soon, ill be stunned. But thats just my pepega jealousy.
its a mix of things
those skills definitely edge out vs single targets, but there are way too many synergies available from their open kit of spells that cover all types of gameplay aside from spell casting (begun to add with the warcry SSU, a good direction but it sucks atm), and not to mention the portion of build-enabling items available in the game have stances as their prime selling point, which happens to be barbarian spells. Shocker.
don't want to get too off topic here, but i find it rather disappointing that one class has such a huge marginal advantage over others, notwithstanding the issues with ubers and design overall (purify lol)
i sincerely find it difficult to reroll multiple other classes to run the same farming process with more expensive characters, only to realize after doing it that my barb simply does it better for cheaper, and has the advantage of the least amount of necessary respecs to clear all of endgame.
