@Moasseman thanks for the great guide, I skipped all previous median releases since I drew my attention into other games like PoE (full time), and now I'm doing my best to try out as much builds as I can to learn all mechanics on my own (that's my preferred way of learning things rather than just reading someone else's stuff), since I got pretty burnt out and mostly waiting for 4.0. Sadly, wiki is not at PoE wiki level (I'm missing quite a bit information there), but it's a nice knowledge base at least.
Having said that, with my limited knowledge, I also think Visegrip is just BiS unless you manage to get this 20k+ AR and still at this point they are competitive and might be even better for some other gear setups which do not allow you to have 20k+ AR (and you can just mindlessly invest all points into strength right away from lvl 1). I tested those gloves already on 5 melee/range attack characters and all I can say they are simply a game changer compared to how much you need to invest to stack decent amount of AR.
Anyway, I made some decent craft with just one shrine charge, nothing special but at least upgrade from TU considering I'm still learning median, still low-level and I didn't succeed with other char crafts:
