I feel like Bonus 4 and 6 largely conflict with one another. Consecration is such a stationary ability and even involving Steed Charge is just begging for lots of movement. I feel like the fantasy is a mounted commander with soldiers at his disposal as he uses tactics to control the field. I think the set should just double down on Phalanx and Steed Charge. Something like:

Bonus 2: Steed Charge gains the effect of Endurance and you can now use skills during Steed Charge without being dismounted.

Bonus 4: You and your Phalanx soldiers do x% more damage against targets under the effect of Justice, Provoke, Shield Glare, or while standing in Consecration.

Bonus 6: You take x% less damage while Steed Charge is active. For every x yards you move while mounted, you summon a Phalanx soldier.

I do think that needs a bit of work to make sure it avoids being a "passive damage" build, but all in all, I would really like something that plays to this fantasy.
Great response! you're absolutely right, i just wanted to share an idea, perhaps spark some interest!

Na, it's no biggie at all. I really like the idea and I've always wanted a build that focused on using Steed Charge almost 100% of the time.
