    WOW is all I have to say. I have some questions

    1. What is the best way to craft 4 gold legendaries, examples 3,3,1,1 or 2,2,2,2, or even 3,2,2, or what ever
    2. How hard was it to get all your unique items? Did you have to buy most of them or did you lucky and get good drops?
    3. Now that you seemed be getting your tank fully decked out, are you building a dps set up?
    4. What items if any, do you have to still pristine craft?
    5. Do you still struggle with any bosses? Like have to use a healing potion here and there?

    ok where to start haha...
    1. to craft, what i do is start with 2x blues with 1 gold line each..re-craft those until they become pinks with 2x gold lines. when i have 2 of those i craft 2x 2x 1x 1x..and revert until i get a leg with 3x gold lines. then i usually do 3x 3x 1x 1x or if i get a drop or whatever with 2x i will go 3x 3x 2x 2x. it takes a while but it works in the end.
    2. for items i have terrible luck with drops(besides my 1 T5 bear ring)so ive purchased mostly everything i have so far. focusing on things that will be biggest upgrades for key stats(heredur shield/dragan pauldrons/bear rings) rings are cheap relatively speaking so maybe start there...heredur shield was by far the biggest upgrade to max me for infernal 2 so i bought 3 and the 3rd was the beauty u see in the photo :)
    3. i work on both sets at the sametime just crafted tank first and dps as a accumulated pristines(i can post a foto of my dps set so far which is not amazing but good enough to farm infernal solo for leaderboard and higher lvl blues/pinks etc) ideally i can soon tank everything infernal or below as dps soon and just switch to tank for hardest content.
    4. i still need to craft hp into boots/gloves and need to upgrade my T4 ring to a T5 which should give me a fair amount more HP. also trying to craft a better torso armor enchant because its still a little low.
    5. really the only boss that kills me on occasion is bear lvl 5 because i tank him in corner and dont move so if he hits me with lightning and beehive at same time i can die. every other normal boss is quite easy at this point.

    this photo is my dps setup. keep in mind outside of shoulders(which i will be changing to arachna with full resist enchant)i have 0 defensive gems in it, the last vital piece is the 4x crit rating adornment which should give me 80% crit rating. also since i have 1x crit dmg in wpn i use an hp ring to offset the loss of hp gems in my setup, and with a 2nd crit ring i would be overcapped on crit dmg. its a very poor for going in a group and killing bosses but works just fine for infernal farming. anyways dps setup needs some work but its coming along considering its an off set.

    if i missed anything let me know :) cheers
    edit: i realize i need alot more attack speed for dps, i use 0 in skill tree atm but if i change my gems over then i can get alot more. i have to tank so much that its not worth it for me for just farming haha

    I have thought of having 1x crit dmg line on weapon. The reason is keep up crit dam high as possible & having more hp from 2nd ring or from hp amulet(using the ring or amulet from tank build).
    With this set up it is easier to achieve 60k+ hp which is safer to fight boss at infernal 2.

    Now 45-50k hp 2H DK with 80% crit rate, 350-400% crit dam & 20k+ dam may still be able to play comfortable in infernal 1 & 2. The trend of difficulty rating in the game is to decrease crit rate..at certain point crit dam not as effective as it used to be.
    I'm thinking in future rather than being stuborn to keep the popular 2h crit rate, crit dam & dam build. Perhaps just use some items from 1h build to gain more survival.

    To me crafting items for 1h tank is always important part of developing a 2h DK. Since the items can be used anytime to replace the offensive version.

    But I don't know what will come in 2018. Perhaps my though will not be relevan if things changed again:D

    ye i prefer the slightly lower dps higher survival style of dpsing especially because i solo alot for leaderboards. i should have 80% once adornment is crafted. im investigating a 1h hybrid tank/dps build that could be fun.

    hey guys...sirlansalot the shoulder from arachna is it the untouchables one?

    for dps i am now using witch shoulders, before was sigris chest/adorn and dragan shoulders because i was waiting for a good 4x leg for arachna shoulders. now i will use witcher set 3 piece(shoulders/torso/belt)kara 2 piece(cloak/adornment) dragan 3 piece(ring/helm/boots) and herald wpn and gloves.
