Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls Crusader Details Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released new articles showcasing features from the upcoming Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion for the popular action RPG. The articles offer a look at the design of the new Crusader class and answers to fan questions about the class.

Scheduled to launch on March 25 the game will challenge players to defeat Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, who seeks to seize control of the Black Soulstone. The new expansion will also offer a new hero: The Crusader, a new level 70 experience cap, new spells and abilities for existing classes, greater emphasis on randomized environments, a reworked Paragon progression, as well as two new game modes: Loot Runs and Nephalem Trials.

What type of wapons are best to use with him?

Answer: Flails are his class weapon, and those have good solid ratings across the board, so we'd recommend those, but it can depend!  If you want to be able to spam as many Blessed Hammers on screen as possible, you may want a super-fast Dagger. Or, if you want Shield Bash to hit really heavily, you could try to find a really slow 2-Handed Mace. The Crusader is a Medieval Knight who is heavily trained in the art of war, so he can wield almost any weapon he finds.

Wondering how the Crusader will fare using the 2h weapon in 1h passive

Answer: To be clear, the Heavenly Strength passive on the Crusader allows him to wield a 2-Handed Weapon and Shield, not two 2-Handed Weapons. We felt that we had to allow this ability for a few reasons. First, the Shield is a defining characteristic of the Crusader, and many of his skills actually require a shield to be used. If Crusaders were forced to choose between those skills or 2-Handed Weapons, that would just feel crappy. Secondly, as the Crusader cannot Dual-Wield 1 handed weapons, this gives him a unique edge and makes him stand out amongst the other classes.
