Yes the FotF build was ninja-nerfed which I believe is unintentional for the last rune, for now I have put that build aside until some sort of verification from blizzard regarding this undocumented change.
I will be releasing a full guide for the condemn build that'll explain the differences between the two, since the condemn build doesn't rotate judgement-resolved into the rotation
Hey Cookie, glad about your weapon video, was very informative. I was happy to see that you think the furnace is viable. I want to get my hands on that weapon so badly.
Did you test the procc of the weapon? Can it crit? Does it benefit from fire elemental damage %?
If it cant crit, your Diamond makes more sense to me. But I wouldn't see why that procc couldn't crit. I am theorizing about an attack speed build around the furnace, do you think it would be viable for lets say Torment 3-4?
I crafted myself a pretty decent Piro Marella (42% reduction) so I've been using Shield Bash but I find it to be quite a bit weaker than Fist of the Heavens. On the plus side though it gives you a pretty nice charge to keep up with your allies without the need for Steed Charge which can be replaced with Heaven's Fury for some more damage or Judgment (resolved) which in a groups is probably superior especially with the CD resets.
Should I just ignore the shield's passive and stick with Fist of the Heavens anyway? The rest of my build is exactly the same except for the fact that I have a Sultan of the Blinding Sand so I am using the Holy Cause passive.
