We've researched some of the best advice for a Diablo Immortal Best Crusader build.

The Crusader class in Diablo Immortal can fill both the Tank and Support role, with the ability to slay demons on the frontlines while also using skills to buff themselves and allies. To that end, we've compiled some of the best tips for creating the best Crusader build in Diablo Immortal.

Diablo Immortal Best Crusader Build: Skills to Take

We recommend the following skills for Crusaders to focus on adding to and building around:

  • Punish: Strike an enemy for X to Y damage and gain Hardened Senses, increasing your Block Chance by 30% for 2 seconds.
  • Consecration: Consecrate the ground around you, dealing X damage to all nearby enemies over 6 seconds.
  • Draw and Quarter: Mount a celestial war horse for 5 seconds, dispelling all movement impairing effects, increasing your movement speed by 60%, and replacing your Primary Attack. Holy chains will bind up to 8 nearby monsters, dragging them as you ride and repeatedly dealing X damage.
  • Falling Sword: Impale your holy sword at a location where it deals X damage over 5 seconds to all nearby enemies. Activate again to launch yourself into the heavens and come crashing down at the sword's location, dealing Y damage to all nearby enemies and retrieving the sword.
  • Spinning Shield: Hurl a spinning shield, inflicting X damage to all enemies in its path. The shield will return, pulling enemies in its path to you and dealing an additional Y damage. Maximum 3 charges. Players can only be affected by Spinning Shield once every 3 seconds.

Other skills to consider include:

  • Sacred Fire: Ignite the air with holy flames from your weapon, dealing X to Y damage to an enemy and 25% as much to all other enemies in front of you.
  • Conjuration of Light: Call down a beam of holy light from the heavens, protecting you and all nearby allies with damage immunity for 3 seconds.
  • Shield Glare: Light erupts from your shield, dealing X damage and Blinding all enemies in front of you for 3 seconds. Players will only be Blinded if they are facing you.
  • Sweep Attack: Sweep a mystical flail through enemies in front of you, dealing X damage. Charging longer increases range, and damage up to Y. When fully charged, Sweep Attack will also knock enemies away.
  • Falling Sword: Impale your holy sword at a location where it deals X damage over 5 seconds to all nearby enemies. Activate again to launch yourself into the heavens and come crashing down at the sword's location, dealing Y damage to all nearby enemies and retrieving the sword.
