As a side note to those gathering gear. The 6 piece could be good I suppose but at the moment I don't have it and am having great success with this combo:
RoRG - Reduces the requirements for sets by 1 2 pc - Cain's gives attack speed, gold find, and magic find (attack speed being the key)
2 pc - Aug - Gives tons of dmg reduction from regular and elites also gives plus dmg vs elites
3 pc - Blackthorns - Gives lots of extra dmg reduction, gives +dmg to elites, gives immune to desecrate, plague and molten which is awesome especially if you have a immunity neck on top of it.
With this combo I run holy +dmg with holy cause and never have problems. Im only doing t4 atm, but Im pretty confident I can move up into t5 solo with the RoRG I found this morning before work as it boosts the set bonus of all three sets which makes each awesome.
I have played "ping pong" for a long time now.. And since patch it just seems so much stronger.. Everything melts on T5... T6 is doable but not worth it for me atm. (Certain affixes on elites equals deaths on T6)
However I really want to try something Different. I just don't have the luck to find any akkhan items or good weapons..
Would you mind sharing your battlenet profile? I'd like to compare to see howfar I am gearwise minus the flail and the shield
Just got awesome 2350 dps Gyrfalcon's from my friend. I have 5 piece Akkhan and 2 piece Aughild's with high CDR because i need it for my other build. This means i can have Akrat's champion up all the time. I did some testing with set and without set, using Andariels, Blackthorne, aughilds, 2 piece akhan and spec was working much more better with my full Akhan set because of CDR. I can keep my Firestarter up all the time, spam Law, Bowmen and Shield Glare much more often. But sad news is this spec does not work as well as FoTh or FoF builds. FoTh makes allmost same AoE dps, ranged cast so you can kite but it just deals so much more damage on singletarget and survivability is much more better. FoF build just oneshots everything.
I think this spec is best played on party where you can clear packs/trash really fast and on bosses everyone else makes that awesome singletarget dps. This spec still lacks for singletarget if you start lcomparing it to FoTh or FoF
