last night i was doing my usual studies, and i was reading again the letter to Ephesians. At the end of it I closed the scriptures and went on the PC, and i read about the contest "Design a Legendary". Cool i thought.
Than my mind jumped to Ephesians and back again to the Crusader. There is a part in Ephesians where it writes about the Armor of God. Here the text:
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
14 Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. 15 As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. 16 With all of these,[c] take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
I mean, as a beliver, I've to be honest, i've always wanted one of my heroes wear this Armor in one of the games I've Played, but i think that even as nonbelivers, this armor is simply Epic, excuse me, Legendary!
So, considering the game, the story, the character, i think that D3 RoS, and in it, the Crusader within the Church of Zakarum, would be the perfect place to see this Armor represented, even considering it an easter egg. I'm not good in useing paint shop pro, so i'll just write down the possible stats bonus and effects.
