Gear and Item Set Info
This mostly focuses around survivabilty. You want to use heavy armor to boost your heal amount and over just gain more protection. The reason why you can become very survivable is because of the passive in the shadow skill line and the swallow soul perk. You honestly don't need many sets at all. I mean if you think there is some sets that would help this build out a lot then go for it.
Okay, so here is a combo that I came up with in order to use this class. Focus on your two handed weapon slot abilities mostly and switch to bow if you need to do high over time damage. For start off by pick out a certain target in the crowd that you are facing. Next use swallow soul to apply the passive to that target. Then use suprise attack on the selected target to lower their defense and improve yours (must have shadow barrier passive). Next use brawler for some over time damage and a damage shield. After this repeat this combo while useing heavy attacks. While this is all going on you will not be able to really be harmed. The reason is because of the amazing physical and magical defense you have and the passive from the swallow soul skill.
For the bow, it is simply used just for 1v1 groups of enemies (PvE), mobility, and over time damage. Just star with swallow soul, then debilitate, then Prolonged suffering, then poison injection. After you have that in order use heavy/basic attacks. Repeat. You can also use prolonged suffering to lock down targets during a fight, like healers or ect. After you are done killing their friends you can go after them. You can use debilitate to gain speed and to keep your distance from enemies. Poison injection is basically your finisher.

Champion Point Tips
For champion points try investing it into reducing physical and magical damage to you. Also I recommend to invest in the quick recovery and heavy armor focus passive a as well. Another thing is to put points into your ability costs and recover. For damage focus on putting your points into spell/physical penetration. Also I recomend getting the thaumaturge passive along with the blessed passive. Also invest in elemental expert and mighty passive a for your champion points.
