I am trying to find out if I can rely on the death-preventing effect of Akarat's Champion. I have read in several places online that it is possibly bugged, and it seemed to have been confirmed. However, I am thinking that perhaps it worked for them, but it wore off right when they died and made it seem like it didn't work.

Can anyone confirm whether this is a bug or not?

Several links pertaining to this discussion are below.




Several others as well.

  • Can you provide a link as to where they say it's bugged? And how?

  • I'm not sure how we can answer this; the best we can do is say, "Yes, this is how it's working", or, "No, it doesn't do this." We might be able to guess it might not work as intended, but we can't give a definitive answer yes or no.

    I'm guessing he's talking about Akarat's Champion death-preventing effect. Wrath regeneration and attack speed do work, obviously.

  • I re-wrote it to make more sense, as you described. Sorry I wasn't clear in the first question. Commented May 12, 2014 at 11:25

As of patch 2.0.5. Akarat's Champion has been re-worked.

It no longer has the original death prevention ability. Now you have to have the Prophet rune to gain that ability.

The patch mentions nothing about fixing a bug with this ability. However, since they have re-worked the skill, this may have affected the bugs that are mentioned in your post.
