Overview

Crusaders are a fine blend of physical strength and faith-driven magic prowess, making them a versatile class. They are capable of melee combat with a spear or a sword and shield, of playing a supportive role in parties with beneficial magic skills, and of sacrificing their health to wield powerful holy magic.

Jobchange Guide

See Crusader Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Crusader from a Swordman requires the player to complete a number of tasks:

  • Item Collection
  • Endurance Test
  • Written Test
  • Battle Test

After completing these tests, the player will be transformed into a Crusader. Most of this takes place inside of the Prontera Castle.

Builds

There are a few primary builds of Crusaders:

  • Grand Cross, which deals Holy magic damage to enemies in a large area of effect
  • Devotion, which allows the crusader to take damage in place of an ally.
  • Shield, which deals ranged damage from afar.
  • Spear, which deals rapid melee damage at close range.

Grand Cross

Stat Build (base)

Grand Cross, which is often abbreviated GC, is a skill that relies on both the Crusader's ATK and MATK to deal damamge to the enemy. Just as Grand Cross relies both on ATK and MATK to deal damage, the damage from the ATK portion is reduced by the enemy's DEF, while the MATK portion is reduced by the enemy's MDEF.

  • Strength is important due to the fact that it adds damage to the skill and also increases carrying capacity. Strength gives a noticably smaller bonus to GC damage than Intelligence however.
  • Vitality is important due to the fact that GC Crusaders tend to mob enemies to level, however the HP casting cost of Grand Cross increases as max HP increases.
  • Intelligence is very important for a Grand Cross Crusader, and many players get 9x base intelligence, many even maxing it. There are a number of reasons for this:
    • It is the primary source of damage output
    • It provides needed SP Regeneration
    • It increases the effectiveness of Heal
    • It increases the effectiveness of SP Recovery Items
  • Dexterity is important to a Grand Cross Crusader because it controls the speed of the cast. Most GC Saders will balance both this and their strength after finishing their Intelligence. It is not uncommon for a player to have a build that is very high in both Intelligence and Dexterity, and have little points allocated elsewhere.

Shield

Stat Build (base)

This build utilizes a combination of Shield Boomerang and Shield Charge to keep enemies away and deal ranged damage while also being tanky through the use of Guard and Defender. Additionally, in PvP and WoE, a status weapon can be equipped to spread status effects with Magnum Break and Shield Charge. The player can also opt to use Devotion in party play while also contributing to damage via boomerang.

Devotion/VIT/WoE

Stat Build (Base)

This build is generally reliant on parties for leveling, as they typically have low strength and intelligence. This is a full support build that is probably the most useful of all of the crusader builds for WoE. It utilizes high vitality and high dexterity to quickly cast Devotion on any characters that would make good use of more HP or an uninterruptable cast time, as well as transferring buffs like Auto Guard, Defender, and Reflect Shield to multiple targets.

Agility Spear Crusader

Stat Build

Some builds will occasionally forsake the PecoPeco Riding and Holy Cross skills in order to get a high level of Heal.

This build emphasizes doing powerful normal attacks at a rapid rate. Leveling spots include places such as Byalan Island and Ice Dungeon, as well as any map that standard melee characters level at. The class plays similar to the more familiar Agility Knight and boasts some of the highest single target DPS on undead and demon targets via Holy Cross.
