Now I'm at a point where all my classes are kind of stuck. No matter how smart I play, there will inevitably come battles where I get bad rolls and simply cannot keep up with the enemy offense. It gets frustrating because you just feel like you're getting cheated by the RNG as opposed to losing due to any fault of your own.
I took a break to try some other games I had on my radar and will come back later to try to finally beat it.
I prioritized Life Scroll drop runes for that reason.
Still, the basic approach of inner focus on 2+ claws, bestial rage on 3+ claw/bow (ideally with significant range, frequently right after Wild Leaps) and Wild Leaps at 3+ claws really worked. Ranger is my only win because, I think, of the mix of near-perfect mitigation at range and the ability to prioritize offense and defense at the same time. All the better that claws do all this while setting up even more hurt through Trueshot.
