I'm building my Crusader now, as I dislike barb after changes... I have majority fire gear but was intending to go the "holy shotgun" build, how do you more experienced crusaders feel these fire builds compare to that build?
Also, i'm curious as to why nobody uses Akarat's Awakening shield as to me it seems ideal for this build giving you the ability to shave those last few seconds of AC off giving a much better up time or am I missing something there?
hey last, loved ur video, i too switched from my barb to a crusader before 2.05 hit, i dont have 6pc aka yet but i have 5pc with grandeur working on last piece, i went fire too, but shield throw with a jekang board and maximus, harringtons shield throws hitting for 35millx9 + the 33% explosions, and my bombardments are hitting for 40-48millx10 with the fire rune, i like being ranged. But for melee enthusiasts ur spec is pretty dope
I still hate falling sword... With 100% fire skills, a harringtons, 500% crit damage it still isn't some amazing attack. It only crits about 30% higher than condemn... but condemn can be used twice as often and with a BoP it hits at least twice (more damage than falling sword) per mob, and if a champion pack is grouped up you can hit all of them 3 times with one condemn... and condemn also doesn't cost wrath to use, and while it has a delay... you aren't completely stopped from doing damage for that delay... so you can still do your normal stuff. I don't see myself ever using falling sword T.T
i dont like BoP after aka nerf xD and you can take every skill... vs Fallings sword i like it to keep my maximus demon a like trigger it on a shit mob jump in and its makes 14m x3 per second thats more then condemn
This is why linking profiles isn't always a good idea for "Guides" since like most players, he swapped skills to a different build / gear set. The video shows it in action. Pretty good overall, especially with no Unity.
