charms give you some overall mana and some mana steal so they help you but you need some other mana source aswell. something like mana on attack or mana per kill.

Farmed 9 charms, 700k def in bear stance, 200fhr, 40% ll, 30% dr ontop of bearstance phsy DR, 8k health

still feel like im made of paper. Mobs have a 5% chance to hit me but still seem to constantly hit me and all resist capped, act 4 destruction was a real struggle, tried azmodan and couldn't even make it to him. Where is this easy midgame? Tried to farm k3k and die within 15 seconds to the skeletons before I can even kill 1 lamp.

Why not using mercenary? They are no longer bugged after dying.

Akt 2 Shapeshifter or Akt 5 Barbarian seems natural choice but each type of mercenaries got its use with decent gear if you go for specific area to farm.
