The main idea of this build is same as other crusader builds, you need to get perma-Akarat's Champion. You can achieve this with total CDR 55.56%. So we need to get this CDR from next items: Helm (diamond in socket), Shoulders, Gloves, Belt, Weapon (Blade of prophecy always has CDR stat), Shield (you need to get shield with CHC and CDR, ideal shield also has Condemn %dmg, but it is very hard to find), at least one of our rings and either second ring or amulet (that's why i put The flavor of time into recommended amulets). Combined with 10% CDR from paragon points we can get our permaAC. It gives us enough wraith to spam condemn all the way across the rift and possibility to keep taeguk's stacks. Also it gives us second life with Prophet rune of AC. For betted dmg output we also need Condemn %dmg on Chest armor and Shoulders. And of course our SoJ needs to be spawned with Holy %dmg.

Also you need to equip your follower correctly for successful farm of GR 40+. We need Templar with second unity and relic which don't let him die. Also he needs next items for maximum output: Fulminator/Thunderfury, Freeze of deflection, Wyrdward and Ess of Johan/Overwhelming desire as amulet. Relic and shield must have block chance, other items you need to reroll into CDR and AS (CDR has higher priority). With these items Templar can crowd control monsters and raid boss and can heal you more often.

Build Guide

1st season is almost over and regular crusader needs to learn something about best build for high solo GR. Condemn sader with vacuum don't need The Furnace, because he can fill progress bar with only trash mobs. 2.1.2 patch brought us new style of gameplay because of increased monsters density in GR and their lower dmg. We run throuht the rift, pull packs of minions together and explode them with holy power. Iron skin with Flash rune don't allow them to stuck our sader and kill him. Do not try to kill Champion's elite packs, just run further. You can farm blue elite packs with pylon's effects but dont waste too much time for them, trash minions are always waiting for you in next room. Boss fight is the most difficult part of completing high GR. It is not so deadly but it takes 4+ minutes in GR 43+. Some bosses are better than others, but anyway we need to get enough time for boss fight. Don't try to farm alone fat monsters during the rift, just run further, because comdemn also needs at least 2 targets for max dmg output.

Also I think that condemn build fits crusader better than stampede because you are fighting with monsters face to face, like old shotgun build, but with definitely better dmg.

P.S. English is not my first language, so excuse me for mistakes.
