Having played with the build now and messed about with the sword, it has to be said; the sword is shit. No matter what traits you try to compliment it with it's still shit. The greatsword is better in every way apart from this magical +15% crit chance, which is superfluous anyway.
So instead, let's look at traits and assume you'll not be stupid and will use the optimal weapon sets (greatsword+wand/focus). Immediately this means you don't have to max out precision because there are no useful trait skills for a greatsword. You can easily compensate for the lack of precision with armour, trinkets and food, and also retributive armour. You will have plenty of toughness if you take knights trinkets, which offers both precision and toughness as primary stats. You can then take a sigil of perception on an offhand weapon and then use sigil of accuracy on your greatsword, which you will camp more often than not, for the majority of the fight. This way you can easily achieve over 60% permanent precision, with more from perception and food (and fury when you get it).
The higher you raise toughness/crit damage, the higher your crit chance and crit damage will be (no shit, right?) So if you max it out and take Altruistic Healing, you will be able to swing as often as you like without the need to dodge, other than when you draw aggro yourself. This means more criticals, more damage FROM the criticals and more Might stacks delivered to the rest of the party from Empowered Might.
Now, why do you hate Virtue of Justice? Are you terrible at remembering to trigger virtues on recharge? Because that is essentially what you should be doing. If you play properly, targeting each enemy, balling them up and focusing each one as a party, you will be using VoJ every 1-3 seconds on a regular dungeon enemy. Add that to the Might from Empowering Might you will get every swing of the greatsword (internal cooldown of EM is 1s) and you get a decent amount of spammable party-wide Might. Also note that making VoJ cause blind with the trait means more vulnerability. Vulnerability from leap of faith and VoJ stacks fast when you're mowing down enemies.
The reason why the greatsword is far superior to the sword/focus deal is quite simple; Binding Chains and the autoattack chain. Every third swing gives you one Might per enemy you hit.
With Binding, that's easily 3+ Might from that for yourself, as well as each block=Might. This compensates for the lack of speccing into power, but what can you realistically lose in this setup?
You wanted an opposing build, so here it is:
Berserker armour of either ruby/lyssa/eagle, knights trinkets. berserker greatsword of superior accuracy with whatever else.
blind exposure, retributive armour, Purity, Altruistic Healing, Superior Aria, Empowering Might.
A quick tl:dr;
1.I am not arguing that you need support. I am saying your damage a shit and you're overloading on precision and ignoring crit damage/might/vuln stacks.
2. Claiming one using AH is a cop-out to playing better is not a good argument. It has also been argued ad nauseum.
