Because you don't need the defensive aspect of it. The CDR helps your Heaven's cooldown hugely. You already have Esoteric, Justice and Aquila for defensive.

The problem I'm having with this build is two fold, first it's 100% uptime of akarats champion, which even with the gogok and well rolled gear I had a good 3-5 second delay between it going down and me casting it. The reason I suspect this is because you have to use your punish to get stacks of gogok but your attack speed is remarkably slow. My solution was switching the convention of elements with a ring of total grandeur and equipping a leorics crown instead. My second problem I have yet to come up with any solution, some rift guardians don't attack in ways you can block, when I was doing a gr 80 the rift guardian one shot me several times because he only cast spells instead of blockage physical attacks. Any suggestions?

For 100% uptime, you need 55.55% sheet CDR with Gogok at max stacks - what are you running your CDR at?

Instead of the shield you have up on the gear i am using the eberli charo and it is really good, lowers the cd for heavens fury.

This is not a holy shotgun build as you are missing the primary item that makes this a "shotgun" build. this is simply a heavens fury build. In order to be a "shotgun" build you need to either wear or cube and use the Ivory tower. That is the only item that triggers heaven fury on block.

Also you need a sheet 85% block rate for this to function properly as well as a 55.35% CDR sheet to keep up Akkhan. You should not be using Shield Glare in place of iron skin especially since it blinds the enemy. you need them to hit you for holy shotgun to work. also provoke should have the hit me rune again for the same reason as shield glare. they need to hit you. if you lower their attack speed you lower your chance of the proc holy fire. Heavens fury should have the ascendancy rune not the fires of heaven. you are not looking to spend wrath, you are 100% cooldown based hence the need for the 55.35% sheet CDR. Akarats champion should use the Rally rune unless you are on hardcore. Prophet should ONLY be used on hardore. every other build should use Rally or Hasteful. Laws of valor should be switched to law of justice with decaying strength. again you want them to hit you so let them hit you. this will reduce the damage but not the speed in which they hit you. 

again with gear. stone of jordan is garbage for this build. it literally offers nothing at all. if you are using the graunjer in the cube you NEED justice lantern in one of your ring slots. In-geom is not used in holy shotgun as you are 100% CDR ALSO since you are wearing Ivory tower you MUST cube Fate of the Fell for the build. Now your weapon. since you are not actually attacking anything you have to have the weapon with the highest direct damage you can get your hands on as HF is based off weapon damage. 2 hand weapon  is a must here so grab whatever 2 handed weapon you can that has the highest damage on it. I suggest the Baleful Remnant for the bonus of having phalanx avatars spawn when you kill something with akarats running. since this build has Ak running 100% of the time you will pretty much have a constant supply of avatars dealing your damage since your not actually attacking yourself.

Your entire post seems to be written based solely on the mistaking the speed farm variant rather than the GR push build as well as ignoring the explanations of the skill, gear and stat changes. There is also a video guide from Deadset (the 2.6.1 Build Compendium) if you prefer that over a written guide or need further explanation of the build.

      Patch 2.6.6 has been released ahead of Season 18 which launches this Friday and here are the official patch notes.
      Patch Highlights
      13 new legendary powers have been added to the game in Patch 2.6.6. You can find more details in the patch notes below. There's a new legendary gem called Legacy of Dreams that was introduced to make the Legacy of Nightmares (Season 17) buff more permanent. If you pre-purchased Spoils of War, Patch 2.6.6 includes a Mal'Ganis pet reward. You can read up on Season 18 here . Blizzard (Source)
      Patch Notes
      Below you will find the patch notes for the most recent update for Diablo III, Patch 2.6.6. Changes from the PTR have been highlighted in RED.
      PATCH 2.6.6
      Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated.
      General
      A pet has been added that will be available for players who pre-purchase Warcraft III: Reforged Spoils of War Edition (PC Only) Seasons
      The buff for Season 18, the Season of the Triune, has been added Triune's Will: All abilities have a chance when hitting an enemy to spawn a circle that gives a power. Only one circle can be active at a time. Triune of Love (Power): Players in the circle receive a 100% damage bonus while active Triune of Determination (Resource Reduction): Players in the circle receive a 50% discount on resources spent while active Triune of Creation (Cooldown Reduction): While standing in an active circle, any skills currently on cooldown come off of cooldown more quickly Developer Comment: The last couple of Seasonal buffs have been focused primarily on end-game content. We wanted to try something different this Season with a buff that was more beneficial to players regardless of where they might be in their Season Journey. Triune's Will can come into play as early as level 1 and continue to make an impact on your game experience from the beginning to the end of the Season, and we're looking forward to seeing how players leverage this ever-changing boost throughout their adventures! Developer Comment: In addition, we received feedback from players during the PTR about colorblind accessibility. We've changed one of the blue-tinted circles to a darker, green earth tone that should stand out a lot more for affected players. We greatly appreciate your feedback! Items
      Developer Note: There are additional specific notes below, but broadly for 2.6.6, we wanted to introduce a handful of new item powers targeted at two audiences: (1) certain classes with long-standing requests for balance/quality of life adjustments and (2) the broader player base for experimenting with Kanai's Cube. This means fewer class-specific new additions, but more additions that everyone has an opportunity to play with. We also experimented with making some of the craftable sets from Haedrig more appealing for fresh level 70's or players looking to maximize their farming runs. We hope to see some interesting new theorycrafting and tactics out of 2.6.6 and can't wait to see what the community does with this new loot! Updated Item Notes: There are a number of notes below clarifying the intention of certain item functionalities. In a couple cases, such as with Flavor of Time, the item wasn't behaving properly during PTR per our intentions (which has been fixed). For others, we just wanted to provide more clarity about exactly how these items behave. The Flavor of Time New Legendary Power: Pylon effects last twice as long. Note: Only wearers of this item gain this effect. This is intended. The Executioner New Legendary Power: Attacks will slay enemies with less than (5-10%) health. Note: This item's power does not work on followers. This is intended. Stone Gauntlets New Legendary Power: Getting attacked will slowly turn you to stone... (You gain 50% more armor, but your movement speed is reduced by 15% and attack speed is reduced by 20%. This effect stacks up to 5 times) PTR Update: This item now displays a buff icon and has a clearer in-game description. Thank you for the feedback! Note: Immunity to control-impairing effects can work against the reduced attack and movement speed penalties. This is intended. Echoing Fury New Legendary Power: Slaying enemies engulfs the wielder into a Frenzy. (Killing enemies increases your attack speed by 15% and movement speed by 5%. This effect stacks up to 5 times) PTR Update: This item's power now works on kill assists and pet kills. Thank you for the feedback! Squirt's Necklace New Legendary Power: While not taking damage, your damage is increased by up to 100% and damage taken is increased by up to 50%. PTR Update: This item now displays a buff icon. Thank you for the feedback! Messerschmidt's Reaver New Legendary Power: Reduce the remaining cooldown of one of your skills by 1 second when you slay an enemy. PTR Update: This item's power now works on kill assists and pet kills. Thank you for the feedback! Mortick's Brace New Legendary Item: Wrath of the Berserker gains the effect of every rune. Developer's Note: If you played during the Patch 2.2.0 PTR, you'll recognize this as an item that was later removed from the game before it went to live servers. At the time, Mortick's Brace gave too much power for a single item slot. However, the power curve of Diablo III has changed significantly since then and we're comfortable with bringing it back. Developer's Note: We're not done with Barbarians, either. However, this is a change that required less testing and could be easily added to 2.6.6, so rather than waiting for a larger batch of changes, we saw no reason to hold this one back. Spite Note: This item can be crafted from the Blacksmith and is not a normal loot drop New Legendary Power: Non-cleaving Gargantuans gain the cleave and chilling effects of the Humongoid rune. Legacy of Dreams New Legendary Gem: While you have no set bonuses equipped, every Legendary item you have equipped increases your damage dealt by 3.75% and reduces your damage taken by 2%. (Max level 99) Rank 25: This bonus is doubled for Ancient items. Developer's Note: The end game opened up significantly with Season 17's Legacy of Nightmare's buff (and the community was clear about how much these new options were appreciated), but wanted to make this addition a more permanent fixture in a more streamlined way than simply making it baseline. This Legendary Gem should open that path up even further and at more opportunities than just late game Greater Rift pushing. Crafted Sets Note: The following sets have been significantly revised from their existing level 70 counterparts. Items crafted prior to 2.6.6 will continue to exist in their old forms but will not be updated after the patch. In addition, after the patch, the old recipes will no longer be available to craft and all players will need to re-acquire these recipes by finding the plans again through Horadric Caches or by killing Odious Collectors. Sage's Journey A Belt has been added to this set. Haedrig the Blacksmith now automatically learns how to forge this set at Rank 12. Captain Crimson's Trimmings (2) Set Bonus Regenerates 6000 Life per Second Reduces cooldown of all skills by10% 20%. Now also reduces Resource Costs by 20% (3) Set Bonus Set bonuses have been replaced Damage dealt is increased by your total percentage of Cooldown Reduction Damage taken is reduced by your total percentage of Resource Cost Reduction Aughild's Authority (2) Set Bonus Set bonuses have been replaced Reduces damage taken by 15% Increases damage dealt by 30% (3) Set Bonus Reduces damage from elites by 15% 30% Increases damage against elites by 15% 30% Cain's Destiny (2) Set Bonus Attack Speed increased by 8% +50% Experience. (5.0% at level 70) (Moved from (3) Set Bonus) (3) Set Bonus When a Greater Rift Keystone drops, there is a 25% chance for an extra one to drop. Bug Fixes
      Fixed an error that occurred when reporting a player via a friend request Fixed an error that occurred when saving an existing Friend Note without making changes PTR-Specific Bug Fixes
      Squirt's Necklace Fixed an issue where the damage taken increase was not reaching the 50% cap Captain Crimson's Trimmings Fixed an issue where the bonus provided by this class set was subject to snapshotting
