Season 15 is almost there so here's a complete breakdown and overview for ALL BEST possible Crusader Builds out there. I went through all of them during PTR, both old and new, and trust me, this season will be glorious for all Crusaders out there. If you never played the class, never tried Condemn of Holy Shotgun, Sweeper or Thorns, now is the time. I think that crusader might have the most diverse build variety out there with nearly every build reaching GR100 and above.
All builds here, as usual:

For speedfarming i think Condemn might be the best this season, and i also developed my own build for this, check it out:

Reliable 2-3 mins clears gathering all legs and DBs with under 2 mill dps. Pretty damn good.
Norvald is just as viable as before, even better:

The invoker is immensely improved this season. Works better than impale DH in groups too.
Any good speed builds?

nm I saw them at the bottom. So second question. What speed build is comparable to say UE Multi build?

Unfortunately nothing can compare to UE multishot. :)

Hi, Romano!
Indeed, it's incredible how strong Invoker now is. It's also interesting to see how many different cube and skill configurations made it past GR100s in Solo Ranking LBs.

I wanted to ask you about using Invoker in groups. What other classes and build would be in that group, and to what GR level do you think Invoker set is viable in such groups? Any skill or cube differences from pushing builds?

Thanks!

From my experience it works best with a pure DPS group. Support monk and barb apply too much CC, which means less thorns stacks and less damage. I stack only attack speed and CDR (>55%), no area damage whatsoever on my pieces. Cubed Furnace and Nemesis bracers for elite hunting.
If you do end up with supp dudes in your group, just separate from them and do your own show. You don't need support as long as you have >50k life per hit to fully recover from getting wrecked.
Hello I’m new to diablo so I don’t any slang or terms. My seasonal crusader is almost level 70 so I’m about to start chapter 3. What build will help me get the wings by completing chapter 4. And how do I get the equipment I will need?

You don't play campaign mode in season. Play adventure mode that's the only way to progress!

Fairly sure OP it's playing seasons, and had completes chapter 2 of the season journey.

@OP. Chapter 3 is mostly a full round of bounties, a couple of bosses, a rift, and then spend blood shards with Kadala that you get from the rift. Here's an overview of the season journey

Of course :-)

That didn't answer my question.

You're showing me things that "make your thorns damage better" great. I gotcha.

Where is the base thorns damage? Ususally when you multiply something you have a base value.

Do all classes have built in thorns damage that can be amplified by talents and gear?
There is no base thorns damage. Open your hero's inventory, click "details", look at the bottom of "defense".
