Controllers by their nature are much less precise than a mouse. I play on both PC and console, and while I really enjoy the console experience I have to admit that sometimes my character does some amazingly boneheaded things due to the limitations of pointing the big dumb bastard with a controller. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, fail.Quote from RoguexAI wonder if it's Elective mode that you think is hindering your build playstyle? Enable that in the Options (I play on PS4 and PC) and you'll have just as much flexibility as other people do on PC.
Must say that even with D3 on max on my PC, it feels nicer on console.
But more so to your original question (LOL) give this build a shot until you get more of the Akkhans gear-set.
That said, I second your build recommendation. Though the shield throwing aspect of it could get interesting in certain areas with a controller. If I had a crusader on console, that's what I'd be using though. Loving it for my seasonal crusader on PC.
