Crusader Endgame Thorns Build with The Invoker Set

Diablo 3 Crusader Builds:

This is what Blizzard has said about the background of the Crusader History.

” Crusaders are unbending champions of faith and law. These living fortresses use impenetrable plate and towering shields to wade through scores of foes, leaving demonic bodies smoldering in their wake.

The thick of battle is unforgiving, but crusaders rush in without hesitation, relying on holy magic and heavy armor to guarantee victory. Well-trained crusaders are adept at deflecting attacks entirely, often shrugging off massive blows that would fell lesser combatants. If pressed, they can sacrifice speed and mobility for pure staying power.

Bone-crunching flails and wicked shields are perfect for melee, but crusaders are hardly limited to extinguishing evil at close range. When one of these divinely empowered warriors joins battle, blazing fire and blinding light follow, smiting entire packs of enemies who dare to resist judgment.” Link Here on the stats of the character

Main question that everyone wonders is do they actually have any good builds that can help they move up in the ladders of Greater Rifts or even be a great support player.

For me I have have seen only a few set builds that D3 players are actually playing, which are Set of Invoker which is Thorns Build and Armor of Akkhan Build. I’m going to show you how to actually build it effectively so you can be able to play well in game. Understand that depending on the stats of your gear I won’t know how much damage it will do so you’ll want to pay close attention it, main goal is look for ancient gear for your sets builds that will help a lot. Usually they are good but sometimes they aren’t.
