Nice post and guide!
I recently had started messing around with a really similar idea after I had found the Mythical Turrion's Reprisal, never really got it to work yet however (still missing a whole bunch of other, better gear). I was doing less "counter-hit" and more traditional retal & reflect, yours is very well thought through.
May I ask? I was thinking, since I'm not doing much traditional damage (my setup: much less than yours), I might as well go for Aeon's Hourglass and as much CDR as possible for permanent Overguard and as much Mirror as possible. I know that would come at a big price in your devotion setup -- do you think it might be doable however?

I am not sure if CDR will help me with Retaliation

The gain (from Retaliation POV) is minimal when going permanent Overguard and Mirror.

But hey, if you want to try it then go for it. An innovative approach the Retaliation concept is welcome

Did some leveling with Arcanist first (yes, the cheesy OFF + elemental component of the day, be it fire/ice/lightning) w/some Overguard added to the mix.
Did think about replacing Arcanist w/Necro, but that damn Nullification...
Wish there would be an option for other masteries too, maybe a weaker version in the form of traditional "Dispell Scroll", since me thinks Nullification is much needed due to auras, pools etc game likes to throw at you.
Also is the lack of MSoP due to lack of points or dps-loss?

Yeah Reflection DK is something I want to try myself but Arcanist seems to take the cake for now

Maiven isn't a DPS loss, I lack skill points so kept it at level 8.
