Build Guide

Build Guide - 2.6.1 T13 Akkhan Sage Condemn DB Farming

Intro

Following the recent changes in the PTR:

  • Blade of Prophecy - Two Condemned enemies also trigger Condemn's explosion and the damage of Condemn is increased by 350-450%.
  • Frydehr’s Wrath - Condemn has no cooldown and has its damage increased by 450-600%, but instead costs 40 Wrath.
  • Akkhan 6PC Bonus - While Akarat's Champion is active, you deal 900% increased damage and take 15% 20% less damage.

Condemn based builds had been significantly buffed.

We are also using Sage set in order to get more DB per run, making this build very good for DB farming early season.
With the proper gear, T13 rifts are around 2:00-2:30 minutes, sometimes even going below 2 minutes.

Update 14/09/17
Since I recorded this video the following changes took place:

  • Blade of Prophecy - Increased from 350-450% to 600-800%
  • Frydehr’s Wrath - Increased from 450-600% to 600-800%
  • Akkhan's set - Damage Increased from 900% to 1000% and DR% increased from 20% to 50%

Runs should be even faster now

Update 29/09/17
Akkhan's 6PC bonus had been buffed from 1000% to 1300%

Update 13/10/17
Akkhan's 6PC bonus had been buffed from 1300% to 1500%

Skills


Justice - Sword of Justice, procs Focus ring, also gives an insignificantly movement boost. I hardly use it for Resource generation.
Condemn - Unleashed, our main damage dealer, also procs Restraint ring.
Akarat's Champion - Prophet, Activates our 6pc damage bonus. Also gives you toughness at the beginning of the rift before you can use GoldWrap+Cheat Death.
Iron Skin - Flash, Toughness, but more important a lot of MS.
Steed Charge - Endurance, a ton of MS to jump between elite packs.
Laws of Hope - Wings of Angels, mostly for the increased MS, also gives some recovery&toughness.

Recommended Passives:

Heavenly Strength - Required to equip Blade of Prophecy with a shield.
Long Arm of the Law - Doubles Wings of Angels MS boost up-time.
Holy Cause - Damage and Recovery.
Finery - Damage & Toughness.

Other notable passives:
Lord Commander - CDR on Steed Charge, use it instead of Holy Cause if you don't have enough CDR. (sufficient CDR means that with In-Geom you have 100% up-time on Steed Charge)

Indestructible - Cheat death, however Prophet should be sufficient.

Items


Akkhan's Set - Damage, Toughness, CDR on Akarat's Champion, RCR.

Sage's Set* - Significantly more DB per rift.

Nemesis Bracers - IMO the best bracers in the game, especially for speedfarming.

Goldwrap - Godlike toughness in combination with BoTH.

Focus & Restraint - Damage.

Blade of Prophecy - Damage, triggers more Condemn.

Frydehr's Wrath - Damage, removes CD from Condemn.


I recommend equipping Sage on Head slot & especially Hand slot. since Sage is craft-able, it gives you more control over it.

Cube

In-Geom - CDR

Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan - Damage & Resource generation (You will be constantly moving)

Ring of Royal Grandeur - Required to equip Akkhan's set+Sage


Gems

Head - Diamond
Chest&Pants - Ruby
Weapon - Emerald
