Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we explain everything that is specific to the Speed Farming variant of Akkhan Condemn Crusader. Updated for patch 2.6 and Season 11.

The other pages of our Akkhan Condemn Crusader guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Speed Farming

The Akkhan Condemn deals with regular Rift farming decently all the way through the highest Torments, making it a viable build for the task.

Within the limited scope of regular difficulties, the necessary damage and toughness to triumph over the enemy is significantly smaller. Thus, your best course of action is to improve utility and speed.

2. Adapting Skills

Active Skills
Left Mouse Button Slash Icon Slash Guard Guard Right Mouse Button Steed Charge Icon Steed Charge Endurance Endurance 1 Laws of Hope Icon Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels 2 Condemn Icon Condemn Vacuum Vacuum 3 Provoke Icon Provoke Too Scared to Run Too Scared to Run 4 Akarat's Champion Icon Akarat's Champion Embodiment of Power Embodiment of Power
Passive Skills

In regular Rifts, where you can take advantage of the interaction between Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder and Goldwrap Goldwrap, you can abandon the excess tankyness of Prophet Prophet for Embodiment of Power Embodiment of Power; this solves your resource issues and allows you to run speedrun-specific laws instead.

Iron Skin Iron Skin is excessive safety for speed farming, and when you are doing less threatening content you should swap to Steed Charge Steed Charge Endurance Endurance to improve your maneuverability.

As previously mentioned, adjustments for Torment farming allow you to pick up Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels instead, greatly increasing movement speed and removing enemy collision for your entire party.

3. Adapting Gear

During regular Rift farming, you will wear Goldwrap Goldwrap instead of Vigilante Belt Vigilante Belt. Synergizing with Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder and Avarice Band Avarice Band, Goldwrap Goldwrap will render you practically invulnerable in any non-GR situation.

In speed farm, it is advisable to abandon the additive damage increase from Strongarm Bracers Strongarm Bracers in favor of a utility legendary for the bracer slot. Either wearing Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers and cubing Warzechian Armguards Warzechian Armguards or vice versa will speed up your clears with more frequent elites and environment destruction speed boosts.

4. Adapting Gemming

In standard difficulties, where monster health is much more tame, you should replace Bane of the Stricken Bane of the Stricken with Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder. The latter is a high utility gem that feeds you practically infinite gold, gives you a massive short-term speed boost while picking it up, and synergizes excellently with a worn Goldwrap Goldwrap and cubed Avarice Band Avarice Band for practical invincibility of your character.

5. Adapting Kanai's Cube

As previously mentioned, when speedfarming the armor Cube slot will be taken by your worse rolled item between Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers and Warzechian Armguards Warzechian Armguards. Both items will assist in getting the run done faster — Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers will spawn you an elite for every shrine or pylon pick up, while Warzechian Armguards Warzechian Armguards will consistently speed you up from environment destruction.
