Non-shielded melee builds have tough times in SR already, you need quite a bit of defensive to dive in with Belgothian Blademaster. This spec is a pure glass cannon (no offense to Fluff) that is designed to wreck Crucible with Blessings and a banner.
I have tried variations with changes to Gear & Devotions while keeping the Belgothians core, I have also tried a Warborn+Claw version someone was kind enough to provide but I couldn't get any to really work.

I think I will wait until better brains than mine come up with something

I've done SR 75 with the offensive setup, but vs an easy set of bosses. But this si before SR rebalance. We'll have to see how the final patch comes out and adjust then

So what resists should i be overcapping in SR? Elemental, poison and vitality it seems from most builds? Is this correct?

I'd start with shattered realm ammy. Just as important as overcap is max resist threshold. 3% to all is important. Use warcry. The rest i'll have to see myslef

Does THIS amulet have any room whatsoever in this build? Recently found one and am wondering what to do with it

Yes, but i'd advise against it. Even good old beronath is better. Especially shattered realm. That ammy is unfinished imo. However, if it's all you got, you use what you can

So the ranking goes SR > Beronath > Will of the Blade? I guess I can see why. Hoping it gets a buff in its resists at least so it's a bit more viable. We seem to be stuck on the same handful of amulets in every expansion with little variety

True dat. Not to stray off topic but I feel like the Serenity relic is sort of in that mix. Maybe not as bad, but I hope they bring some other relics and amulets up with them instead of nerfing them. Azrakaa’s Epoch looks fun but the proc damage is sort of scattered and no plus skills, Oof.

how about this amulet ? https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/8998
lose a little damage but the -20% pierce res seems worth it.
Belgo's carnage helps a lot with the skills cooldown

Sure

though bare in mind that Phys>Cold applies before Phys>pierce. Pierce is last in the chain of conversions. So you will lose some flat pierce because you convert some of the phys dmg to begin with.

However, An ammy with poor roll on conversion might actually be a win with the flat pierce on it + skills and -20 pierce res. Not a bad idea at all, save for the very poor resists on it. Could be a good DPS contender vs a well rolleld Kaisan Only testing can tell
