Introduction

Empowered by the Aegis of Valor set, Fist of the Heavens marks the return of one of the most iconic Crusader builds, as surges of lightning crash from the heavens and envelop your enemies in deadly arcs. This build is features both a Greater Rift solo progression variant, as well as a speed farming variation — which we recommend, since the build excels at the task.
