Default Best damage types?

I recall a thread discussion regarding damage types and which is the best to build but can't find it.

Does anyone know of the thread? A link would be appreciated.

Currently, there's a lot of support for any of the elemental damage types (not so much so for ELEMENTAL DAMAGE as a whole however).

Aether and physical are pretty good too IMO.

Pierce is very niche - fantastic with only a few sets/builds.

Vitality is quite good, but is somewhat mitigated by enemies having high vit res

Some might disagree when I say this - acid has great support in terms of devotions and items, but is terribly supported as a skill in classes. It's certainly viable and doable, but quite difficult to pull off.

Chaos is the worst. Always has been. Hopefully FG changes this (but if history is anything to go by, I wouldn't get my hopes up).

One of the two hardest types to get resist reduction for. Other type being bleed...

Although at least bleed gets comped with literally all Nemesis bosses having only 18% resistance to it. But undead areas still suck hard.

Harbinger deceiver is very doable. Valinov and I have both done crucy 170 grade deceivers.

Just don't expect it to be top tier simply due to a lack of support.

Harbinger set in general is very good. Easy to get over 100 RR and solid damage. I personally thought that it'll be good defense wise, but it's not that great (still can facetank some Nemesis).

holy damage could have been easily the best damage type in game. It's only but a dream now

Yes, let's insert more damage types into this game. Because that's what the game needs, more damage types. /s

And this is coming from someone that is fine, for the most part, with the current number of damage types.

Funny you mention that, because there's a whole slew of damage types in the game, that are still not properly supported. all from the retaliation.
