Hi there, great guide, it helped me a lot, I got a little bit lost on nightmare mode, my build wasn’t enought for the monsters, I’ve to say your skills build was really helful, now I’m on level 36. I think your guide needs and update for levels 30-40 and 40 – upcoming levels. Zombie dogs are not really efective and they die really fast.
