Crusader Weapons

Once you reach level 70 and have chosen a Build for your Crusader, you will want to start picking out the best weapons to complement it. Just like with the armor sets, the weapons are designed to enhance specific Skills from the Crusader’s arsenal, which we will mention in the Best Weapons section of this guide. Note that while some of these weapons work best for a particular Build when they are equipped, others should be Cubed (their effect stored via Kanai’s Cube).

Crusader’s unique weapons are Flails (both 1-Handed and 2-Handed).

  • Crusaders will generally prefer to use a 2-handed weapon and a Crusader Shield. However, a 1-handed weapon is also viable in some Builds. The specific best weapon for you will be based on the build you choose.
  • Likewise, depending on the build, you will want to use either a Flawless Royal Emerald (for extra Critical Hit damage) or a Flawless Royal Topaz (for extra Thorns damage) for your weapon socket.
