The best thing about the build is that it is flexible. Like Demonos2 said, many of the passives are interchangable. I personally replaced the blocking talent with finery, then replaced bombardment with Iron Skin for an extra oh shit button. You can basically use the bombard slot for anything you desire, as most of your DPS comes from the hammer spam, especially if you have good + lightning damage.
Another option is you can replace bombard with Judgement with the resolve rune for +80% crit, that combined with laws of valor critical means packs will just melt like butter under your hammers, and it keeps those annoying elite packs with enemies that like to spread out and run away nicely clumped up. Though the value of that combo goes down the better your gear gets.

Apr 1, 2014Just got Schaefers hammer with +lightning damage on it, great weapon for this build and the proc just synergizes with all the lightning damage you're stacking. Love it.Posted in: Crusader: The Church of Zakarum

I find the life on hit from paragon is enough. But if you feel squishy you can swap Long arm for Wrathful if you want.Quote from FortuN
Is Life on hit on items unnecesary on Crusaders? Seems like no one has it, i have around 6000 LOH on mine, but isn't that needed? Would also like som tips since im not near any kind of pro on this game so i appreciate every help i can get
Mar 31, 2014Kapsu, when you say use provoke carefully what do you mean? Only use it once I've got a few hammers spinning? Thanks for the build as well.Posted in: Crusader: The Church of Zakarum

Pretty sure the rune gives crit damage not crit chance.Quote from Huntingbear
I'm actually running with Bombardment build using the same flail.
Mass CD reduction, Crit Damage and STR. Bombardment / Physical damage amplifiers are good as well. I'm also stacking the living crap out of area damage which is very handy when rift farming with a group.
Anyways, atm my Bombardment cd is down to 25seconds (ish) so I'm basically always using it on any named pack mobs and they melt, I run with the 100% crit rune (therefore crit as a stat isn't valued imo) but instead crit damage is insanely strong. If I want to have fun I put on the single Bombardment rune and see 55m crits (using Judgement with 80% crit) times two, that's right. My sheet damage says 460k or something around there, I got weps and things that would change that but I'd lose Bombardment damage as a result. The weakness of this build is single target though, but if you run with a party and just rift farming aoe is very strong.
Oh I should mention that I had the legendary Crusader 1h flail that gives your blessed hammers the "follow" rune as a passive, I salvaged it because I have no interest at all to be a hammerdin I also have the legendary 1h flail that removes the wrath cost on Blessed Shield which I find very interesting, I'm thinking up a build but so far it's just been "fun" builds that didn't rly work.
