Hey! Love the new D3 guides! 

 

Question though, on your Condemn Crusader guide you don't have the stat priorities for the shield! Anyway you could add those on there?

 

Thanks so much!!

Hiya!

 

Just wondering, is it intentional that on the amulet slot you don't have CDR as a required roll? Seems like without the damn Leoric helmet it's pretty much a MUST - I'm using the helmet with a diamond; with 1 ring and ammy having perfect CDR rolls I'm barely over 56%, so I can't even imagine not having CDR on ammy if i were to get rid of the helm.

 

Good luck!

Use Elective mode in the settings.

The shield Frydehr's Wrath turns Condemn from a cooldown into a spender skill!

Unity is in cube because Unity on self + Unity in Follower with "Follower Cannot Die" item provides a flat, constant 50% incoming damage reduction with no detriment to yourself

Vigilante Belt? Best in slot?! What the... it's level 8 legendary, how can it bee BiS?

And most of the items in that list are NOT level 70

 

Heya - this item begins dropping around level 8, but does not remain static, and will roll with level 70-appropriate stats if you find it at max level. The same applies for any item in the list with a 'starting level' listed

I tried to update this set-build since it was my first ever D3 build (nostalgia already), I found that by using full Akhan set & Focus+Restraint the damage was pretty high & I can solo Grift 55, not great, but not bad either.

Yeah i just started trying the focus + restraint with both sockets. They are insane +50% constant damage whatever you do. Plus they boost your toughness too. But what was funny is that both of them dropped my 'raw dps' by 20% in theory (The red numbers when you compare items), but in actuality, they boosted my damage to high heaven. I've gone from stuck in T4 to breezing through T5 just with these 2 rings and nothing else changed in my build nor skills. They are THAT good!

I like this build a lot! I've tried every other build and yes, some do a more damage but none is so much fun to play with. After spending I don't know how many bloodshards I finally got the BoP from Kadala, so now I got my CDR finally over 56% which is great.

But now that I have it  I'm tempted to extract the legendary power and use that on the cube, and as a two hand weapon use "The Grandfather" at its place - which has over 4k damage whereas my version of the BoP has 3.1k damage.

Don't care much about getting into the Leaderboards, but I'd like to solo grifts and get my seasonal objectives done which right now I'm struggling with, have tried variants with the Restraint and Focus or even The Traveler's pledge and the Compass Rose which give you an additional +50% critical Hit Damage but at the cost of CDR, so I suppose I just need to get more Paragon Points and take it from there (currently at 384 and can't solo a grift lvl40 sad.png )

Great guide, I have a question on the cube weapon. I have always had horrible luck finding a furnace in seasons,the only time ever being a level fifty that dropped for me the season before we got the cube. However I do have a flail that has the effect "Akarat's Champion gains the effects of the Prophet and Embodiment of Power runes"

Would would this be a good cube substitute?

I am curious that you don't advocate use of the Gogok of Swiftness. The 15% CDR from its max rank is amazingly useful, especially for keeping up Akkarat's Champion.

It's an alright choice, but it basically takes the two best runes of Akarat's Champion and leaves you to choose between the (lackluster) remaining ones. I would cube a In-Geom instead - I think it's a fair replacement, as it also allows you to run Goldwrap as your belt.

It can be a temporary substitute. The simple reason it is not recommended is, once you hit the 56% CDR breakpoint you stop needing it. The other gems will net you other, more important benefits.

How do you get Condemn and Provoke on the same skill set. Aren't they both utility skills?

So with the changes to Taeguk it no longer seems viable in the build. What would be the best replacement for it? The new Version of Bane of the Powerful seems pretty reasonable in terms of hybrid damage and protection.

It seems as though you need more than 56% CDR for perma Akarat. I have 68% with paragon points and I still have to wait almost 5 seconds for the cool down to finish. I love the build, but at GR 71 which is where I'm stuck now, that 5 seconds translates into almost certain death. Did something change regarding the 56% CDR threshold?

Actually never mind, I'm an idiot. Been playing this game almost 2 months and never looked at character details. (I'm on PS4) I was just adding up the CDR values from the gear, not realising that it's different than what it actually shows in the character details screen. Sorry for that. Again, love the build.

Check Elective Mode in your Gameplay options - this allows you to pretty much slot any skill anywhere.

Good question! Mirinae will also be overhauled, so it might make for a strong contender. I'll look into it soon!

quick question. My hellfire amulet has the finery passive on it, would it still be effective to take the finery skill?

No! You cannot double up on passives.

      A new Beta Build has hit test servers yesterday. You can resurrect in Greater Rift runs instantly and the time is now directly added to the completion timer.
      Instant GR Resurrection
      On live, every death in Greater Rifts increases your respawn timer by 5 seconds (up to a maximum of 30 seconds). Patch 2.6.0 changes things around a little, and the time is now directly added to your Greater Rift completion time.
