Why Akarat's Champion? It increases ALL damage done by 35% (additive, to all damage....) plus wrath generation passive for a strong Berserker mode. Prophet rune is a strong Hulk out mode.

Build Guide

Brings a solid buff to the group with Laws of Valor or Laws of Hope. Sweep Attack (Fire) and Condemn (Vacuum) provide strong AoE damage at melee range. Wrath problems solved by occasional use of generator.

Staples of Build:

Sweep Attack (Burning Strike) + Condemn (Vacuum) for maximal AoE damage. Stacks will with my monk using Cyclone Strike (Implosion) in late game to cluster and blind enemies.

Options:

Iron Skin can be dropped for the Horse ability or other mobility/survival stuff.

Slash (Crush) can be dropped for some other generator or no generator at all once wrath generation is high enough in late game....
