My gear isn't bad at all, but it's not crazy. I killed him without zerging him down via ridiculous dps. In fact, he died with not much time left before enrage.
This build utilizes Transcendence via high Spirit regeneration, resulting in very reliable, consistent healing. It allows the player to use Mantra of Conviction as a clutch heal (as well as a damage boost). With Serenity, Breath of Heaven, Inner Sanctuary, and a little Life on Hit, this build provides enough healing to survive poison clouds that do otherwise unsurvivable damage. If your damage is relatively high compared to mine, you might consider using a different Mantra – one that can make up for a stat that might be relatively low compared to mine.
Hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I'll give the best info I can.

Great post! Love people posting solutions instead of QQ.
It took me 10 or so attempts to get him down.
I tried several different specs and several different gear options.
I found a good combination of DPS, LOH and mitigation that worked for me. There is definitely more than one way to beat him. So look around the forums.
I ended up using Mantra of Conviction + Blinding Flash and bursting hard then moving away in order to beat the enrage timer. I had to up my LOH some from my regular gear and I had to get good at kiting him. It took some practice.
One tip I found is that you can use the worms as a source of LOH while moving him around. Every little bit of healing helps in this fight. But if Ghom is in range and there is not a cloud to move out of you should be hitting him with every thing you have.

Gem slot with Star Amethyst
8.5% Crit Chance
NOTE: Those of you who have defeated Ghom post–1.03 with other successful builds, please share them and how they work, and I'll add them to the original post.
Hey conTAMinate, would you post a link to the spec you used as well as some of your basic stats, so I can add it to the op? Thanks. =)
Hey has to be refering to a different boss, azmodan perhaps. Any ally in the ghom encounter dies in about 5 seconds (including the earth ally). I was hoping, in my attempts to kill him that they would help, but they are more troublesome then helpful.
