Funny you should mention Iron Giants, I just died in Dis with 7 runes :(

Iron Giants and Juggernauts are OK - my death was 100% stupidity - the shrikes, the flayed ghosts, and all the corroders in general I could happily never see again.

You can be happily murdering everything you encounter postgame, but a single Brimstone Fiend on its own can still nearly kill you if it decides to.

Gr now feels medium-powered (little high, little low), but also like it makes Hells and Pan slightly less fiddly with the AC, flight and resistances (and by which point the HP matters less).

Overall, seems good.
