Crusaders are armored warriors, fighting in melee range on the frontlines. Their weapon of choice is a flail. They are especially proficient with shields, making them able to block most of enemy attacks directed at them. During combat Crusaders generate Wrath, which they use to attack their enemies with powerful abilities, or to summon holy powers.

The Hammerdin build, which was popular in Diablo 2. It focuses on dealing damage using Blessed Hammer, which has a large attack range and deals AoE damage. To make the build work properly, you will need the Seeker of the Light set, which will increase the hammer damage and you will also get a damage reduction after using Falling Sword. You should wear Unity and Convention of the Elements on your fingers (remember that your companion also has to wear Unity so that it works properly). Put on Gabriel's Vambraces and The Witching Hour.
