Armor of Akkhan Set redesigned:
2p: Reduce the cost of all abilities by 50% while Akarat's Champion is active (was 4p)
4p: Reduce the cooldown of Akarat's Champion by 50% (was 6p)
6p: While Akarat's Champion is active, your damage is increased by 450%.
New Crusader Weapon: Akarat's Champion gains the effects of the Prophet and Embodiment of Power runes
May be, but there is still survivability problem+ 450% buff is rather low, considering, what other classes(dh, for example) get.
Need testing on Ptr.
Also, not only comdemn, but also Phalanx, FoH+HF and may be Shotgun can be viable.
I cleared 2 GR65 with Condemn one after another, I think the 450% damage boost is not enough to beat GR75. Even the RG's melted fast, however, even though I used Esoteric (+Trapped + Stricken) and Unity in cube I felt very squishy. It would be nice if we could get either passive similar to Swampland atunement, a bracer that gives Akkhan set toughness or add toughness to the set.
Besides one ring, amulet and gloves, my gear is 100% ancient, still not with perfect rolls (my leg gems were 70+, from this season):
Gr 65 on live isn't that bad, I've got a 67 or 68 down with no unity on my wd. My barb is clearing 65's, too much yolo snapshotting or I'd be equal my wd in clear level. That barb as 17m toughness, no defensive gems of any kind and no defensive passives. Just unity and the 4 pc wastes set with blood funnel for survival.
Gr 65 on ptr with the nerfs should be easier then that no? Not trying to be a jerk I've gotten my character copy done on ptr but thats about it.
Screen shots of your character on ptr Tom? I'm curious as to what your toughness/recovery numbers look like, but it may be better to drop the akkhan set and just use LoN around some condemn/defensive supporting legs.
It was why I was asking about LoN to be honest, if you put the damage from the condemn leg weps together with that set and use the off piece legs to further boost toughness you may be able to get away with not using unity, meaning you could go ORZ or COE in cube for more damage/better toughness than the set is giving currently.
