    posted a message on Roland set- Unofficial Buff and Suggestion Thread
    Quote from Harry_Dresden
    I disagree that it would not change anything, I'm routinely clearing GR37 and having very close attempts at GR38 as fire with absolutely no %armor aside from Paragon levels.
    You're clearing that high with Roland's? Mind sharing your build?

    posted a message on No changes to Roalnd in 2.1.1 makes me a sad Crusader :(
    Quote from KaiserQwerty
    My Rolands spec solos Tier 30 no unity easy but going higher than that gets brutally difficult. I thought I read somewhere that the devs were aware that the defense on Rolands is lacking and are considering future improvements, I wouldn't expect any changes to the set until at least the end of the first season though. In the mean time there are some decent Rolands builds out there for farming T6 and running tier 30 or less, doing bounties etc. I actually prefer a Rolands sweep attack/bowmen build to shotgun/stampede/firelight for speed farming T6 rifts and doing bounties because it actually clears faster due to better AoE. I've settled on Rolands for T6 farming and stampede for Grifting and in that combination each build has unique strengths that give them both value. That's not to say I wouldn't mind if Blizz graced Rolands set with a little more toughness in a future patch but it's not entirely useless now either.
    Just out of curiosity, what kind of setup do you use? I'm just looking for a change of pace to condemn/horses for farming

    trying out a new build using Smite and Armor of the Kind Regent with Darklight and Fist of the Heavens with the Retribution rune, the aoe damage is feeling really nice right now

    thanks for the input silvach, I'm using defender of westmarch right now for kicks but I was thinking of switching to Coven's Criterion if I'm going to continue using punish for the extra mitigation

    Howdy everyone, I've been somewhat fortunate with weapon drops and have Fate of the Fell, Schaefer's Hammer, Maximus, Skywarden, Gyrfalcon's Foote, and The Mortal Drama. I've been trying to find a build I really like and the majority of my gear skews towards Fire coming in at 51%, Holy at 41%, and Lightning at 39% with a lot of room for rerolling on things like Harrington Waistguard, Razor Strop, and Thundergod's Vigor. I was hoping I could get some opinions about maybe where to go next or what to try, here's my armory

    This build has been a lot of fun for me. After getting lucky enough to find a decent fulminator and coven's criteria today that had +11% chance to block along with a socket, I decided to tweak the build a little since I lost some 16% damage with the new shield according to the tooltip, I ended up switching out Provoke for Punish with Roar to take advantage of all the extra block and I haven't seen a huge drop in damage but find myself a lot more survivable now than before. Just something I thought some of my fellow crusaders may want to try if they get the chance.
    I would rather switch Justice for Punish / Roar if you were to do so - not Provoke.
    I tinkered around a bit more and just missed the Justice damage too much and dropped Bombardment entirely for Provoke with Charged Up, the stun and extra aoe comes in very handy with the fulminator / thundergod's vigor combo, I only use punish every 5 seconds just to get the block chance buff and not as a real generator because the damage on Punish pales in comparison to the Justice damage. Also using the fulminator lets me use Renewal and with all the blocking going on I rarely rarely rarely find myself even coming down past half health, but thats just on T1, iI'll be trying T2 today to see how it fares.

    edit: forgot to mention, I switched the rune of Laws of Valor to Answered Prayer because it seems the damage effects from Roar,Thundergod's Vigor, and Fulminator can trigger the Nephalem Glory damage bursts, but thats going purely off the eye test (its kind of hard to tell because of the sheer amount of visual effects)
