Before we begin talking about “The Crusade“, I wanted to break the fourth wall and introduce myself to everyone. I am Drixx, a longtime member and supporter here at the Diablo IncGamers site and forums, and going forward I will be covering the Crusader class from the upcoming first expansion of Diablo 3 in depth, with some additional content in other areas. Expect streams, podcasts, Q&A sessions and more to come in the future.
So with that out of the way, welcome to the first installment of “The Crusade“, a feature where we will cover all things Crusader throughout the Reaper of Souls beta and beyond. As one of the centerpieces of the expansion, the Crusader class is obviously a big selling point for the expansion and consequently something that Blizzard has invested greatly into getting just right. In fact they have put so much effort and work into making the class both fun and evocative to long time fans and newcomers alike that it feels a little bit broken at the moment. Just about any haphazard mash up of skills can pretty easily step into Torment difficulty nearly as soon as the class hits the level cap.
After the break I talk about some of the Crusader’s Passive Skills I’m finding invaluable when playing right up into the Torment difficulty levels.
