Hello, I want to make little presentation how powerful warlord in SR is (especially if you farm for some rares to cover resistances). I don’t consider this guide because we have enough of it but some small group of people who likes tanks like me may like it - devotion route and not using stoneguard set made good job here.
Iron maiden’s shoulderguard became good choice after new patch because buffs to rares (especially +phys resistances on every nemesis shoulders) but it can be changed for Dawnguard epaulets with basically same effect.
I went without stoneguard set because we need +max resistances after 105 shard, stacking armor into the air is not so good because main threat is from everyone but no hard meele hitters. In 115 video I had even -20% armor mutator and it wasn’t a problem. With this scaling armor will matter maybe after 125? - but it’s not realistic to go so high so better to focus on maximum resistances. Next advantage is that you can use some gear swapping for belt - altough I didn’t do it because this setup is made allround already. Tested only White Lotus vs Kaisan but he is alt + f4 after 110 so no point to do it.
Example video with 3 decent bosses + 1 hard (Moosilauke) I am noob at recording (that’s my first video) so no sound, put some music you like or something if you want to watch it, I suggest 2x speed too, 115 shard is not really dynamic.
RNG starts to matter a little after 105, after 110 I needed really good run, had to restart few times because of Kaisan or Kubacabra going as first boss.
If you want to follow build I suggest to farm good rares, rings drop during ugdenblooms runs in act 5 and shield can be farmed from MI vendor in Steelcap district, only Overlord prefix should be enough. Some greenless build for 75-76 farm as bonus:
Some bonus for our immortality presentation:
Crate can be killed even in 2-3 min but RNG is needed because his suicide boxes which SOMETIMES can kill us, sadly I didn’t record this attempt and couldn’t do it again so a little bit tryharding here.
Pure facetank kill with Vire devotion instead of Empyrion:
