Does Crusader just suck unless you are 3k+ paragon with perfect gear? Are they just naturally slow progression characters?

Cause I have 1 of every piece of equipment, tried all of the top builds on Icey veins, and i still can barely do T16. Its as if the sader is too squishy. My toughness is like 28k, and jumps as high as 200k for like 5 seconds due to skills, but then reverts back to 28kish so i get 1 hitted.

The damage seems ok, but also takes a while to build up all of the stacks for most builds, so when you are too squishy you die or run before you have a chance to reach that good damage level. It also seems way too slow to move around the map. I need a build that does good damage, uses steed charge for speed, and is not squishy. what build should i be using?

I have played every other character, although mostly monk, dh, sorc, and barb, and they all get out to a fast start each season (regardless of the stupid gift set, i dont even bother with that sometimes), and can speed through T16 and be doing GR100 runs by day 3 in less than 2 minutes. I can barely solo GR75 in 4 minutes with my sader and it is day 4.

has a 90 second cooldown and only lasts for 20 seconds. even at 50% CDR you only have 20 seconds out of every 45 seconds of akerats.

i have found the AOV set to be the best so far. I am doing better. But still disappointed compared to other classes. I am much better with barb, monk, wiz, and dh. All 4 of those have me doing GR110 solo within a few days, and doing speed runs of T16 out in front of every other person due to how fast i am. I find the sader slow and sad compared to those 4. People are running circles around me and not dying. I do see the sader's potential at higher paragons, but i dont have the patience to play that much.

your doing it wrong. you should have akerats up 100% of the time with the akerats set.

im not using akerats set. using AOV set like all the top saders. i am doing better now though. sacrificed some dmg to throw on that green 2h flail and shield that does steed charge stuff and now i am flying around and merking everything up to GR100 with good speed. guess i just wasnt very good at knowing how to gear up a sader quickly since i never played it before.
