Just a quick little idea which came into my mind:

Would an item build where you'd use guard proc with Divine Crusader be any good in Epic Hard/Elite as pure FvS? Solo of course, that is.

Reason I ask is because of the Divine Crusader's No Regret and Castigation you could just block all day while enemies hit you when getting procs on your (possible) Light Guard of Warpriest tree as well as (for example) Dragontouched armor's guard procs and your shield's guard etc.

I could see it working, though most likely not the fastest way. Your thoughts?

A lot of the static end quest rewards from Stormhorns have guard effects on them. Two on the bracers, one on the gloves, and one on the belt. Then equip a shield with both a guard and riposte, and a weapon with riposte. All the guard effects from riposte stack. Course you have to be missed for them to go off, so figuring out how not to get hit all the time helps.

PS: A fire shield or the draconic element absorption thingy also give guard effects.

Finding a good shield with a guard and riposte nowadays is hard unless you plan to go for those weak Lightning Guard things.

Like currently my FvS has Cacophonic Guard shield. I wish one day these bigger prefix/suffix things would drop once again, since they are quite awesome.
