1337 map bosses.

Otherwise doesn't look too bad, except for encounters 3 (well and depending on how fucky the harbingers will be) and the "boss trick" encounters potentially.

Yes it does, it's a generic bloodlines mod. The only requirement is monster level 61+.

I have a specific question on lacerate actually - I generally do a life-based 2h lacerate slayer for early, cheap uber lab farming, but I do resolute technique and use Kondo's to keep it super cheap. Is there any straightforward way to covert to a crit build so it can scale higher without a shaper weapon? Or will this require buying an expensive rare foil(?) and stacking accuracy?

Axes with soultaker being the most obvious end game weapon with a shield like lioneyes. Though I think using rigwqlds sword and axe will be better in the long run. I respeced my gladiator on standard with the rigwald axe/sword combo and BoR and it was very good, running T16 maps without much problem, the guadian fights took a while longer than some of my other builds(but they are all getting nerfed hard). I used a legacy bor because thats what I had, but you can swap some stuff on the tree to get back up to max block with a non-legacy one.

There's a ton of viable options if you include spell totem or ranged attack totem. You basically have to look up some builds/videos and see what you think looks fun

warchief is hella fun and the grandpas smash the gently caress outta stuff so it feels good

edit: and for that you can just level as a 2h melee dude until 28, so like cleave and then sunder to 28 since youre taking phys damage nodes anyways.

I honestly kind of like Righteous Fire totems. The build should be super cheap, since you don't need any good items at all to start out and you can get pretty strong if you invest some currency later on.

You could level with firestorm totems I guess, but I don't really see the point. Just using 2h Sunder or something will probably be faster and you can switch to totems as soon as you get an Inc AoE gem.

It certainly would require much more expensive gear, since your gearing profile and tree would have to change significantly. Going RT reduces the stat dependency considerably, and while the effectiveness is going to go down in 3.0, I'm still fairly certain it'll break all content over it's knee. Bottom line is that I think Shaper weapon is actually much cheaper than trying to shoehorn all the rest of the stuff you need on your gear. And your damage goes down if you go to a 1H (damage nodes from slayer,) anyway.

TLDR my first thoughts are that it would be much more difficult/expensive to make a crit lacerate slayer to be that much more effective than rt lacerate slayer

Did you actually look at it? That amulet alone is more expensvie than most goons own in a full league. He's also using a 6linked incandenscent heart, and it's all 20/20 gems with elemental focus + atziri's promise + taste of hate + diamond active.

I did RF (without totems) on my last dude, so I think I'll just try out the grandpa totems. Cheers.

Is getting to uber izaro in the mid 70s actually viable for a league starter? So far the only time I got all six trials done was in legacy league, after getting two characters past level 80.

Unless you put in quite a bit of effort hunting trials from other goons/public channels you wont have all the uber trials by then. To give you a (basically worst case) example, in 2.6 I got my final uber trial at lvl95.

Yes, and yes. Take them if you need them and remove them when you no longer need them.

I'm only basing this off the vid, but he also doesn't have any rings equipped, only 1 of 3 jewels in and no diamond up. Granted he only goes to 1.5 mil with conc and ele focus, with the clearing setup he was at like 880k.

Early on, it's perfectly fine to take resist nodes, or +30 stat nodes to cover your needs when you don't have good gear yet. Later on once you do get good gear you should have plenty of respec points to get rid of those nodes.

The lion's share of your resists will come from gear. Some of the nodes you will take either through pathing, or incidentally, will have resists on them.

Outside of that, there will be case-by-case situations where you could maybe sacrifice one or two passives so you can slot some ridiculous piece of gear, or you manage to find a piece of gear that gives you enough +stats to drop one of your +30 stat nodes that you can then spend on resistance instead that you need.

In general, resistances on nodes/jewels are edge cases that don't have any hard and fast rules
