Build Guide

This build features the 6pc Armor of Akkhan.


The Armor of Akkhan is probably the most versatile set of patch 2.4. So far there are 4 main builds.

Heavens Fury (a.k.a Shotgun Crusader)

Overview: This build will fire beams of energy in a cone in front of character.
Alterations: This is the build I have focused on here.
Gameplay: You want to be as close to your enemy as possible to make sure that you hit them with every beam. Use your Shield Glare and Provoke to gain Wrath and CC your enemies. I suggest using a Justice Lantern or Unity if you are having trouble surviving.

Blessed Shield (a.k.a Captain America)

Overview: This build is more of a ranged build. You'll throw your shield and it'll bound around. The shield splits and is really good at clearing groups.
Alterations: Swap Heavan's Fury for Blessed Shield: Shattering Throw and Provoke for Steed Charge. Use Akkhan's Leniancy and Jekangbord in hand and put Gyrfalcon's Foote in the cube.
Gameplay: Stay at range and just spam Blessed Shield.

Phalanx (a.k.a Zoo)

Overview: There are two routes to take here. Phalanx: Bowmen or Phalanx: Stampede. Either way, Phalanx are intangible which means they won't be killed by enemy attacks.
Alterations: Swap Heaven's Fury for the Phalanx of your choice. Use Baleful Remnant and Unrelenting Phalanx in hand and put Warhelm of Kassar and Eternal Union in the cube.
Gameplay: Phalanx: Stampede plays similarly to the Heaven's Fury build. Phalanx: Bowmen is a little like the D2 Necromancer.

Condemn (a.k.a Jesus Walk)

Overview: Walk through a crowd of enemies, they all get sucked towards you, and then they explode.
Alterations: Swap Heaven's Fury for Condemn: Vacuum. Use Blade of Prophecy and Frydehr's Wrath in hand.
Gameplay: Spam Condemn to suck in and deal damage to all enemies. Use Shield Glare and Provoke to regain Wrath. You may get trapped by a bunch of mobs so you can use Iron Skin: Flash to move through them or you can put Illusory Boots in the cube.

Disclaimer: All builds are Work in Progress. Please comment with suggestions for improvement.
