Introduction

The Roland's Legacy set unlocks the potential of two signature Crusader abilities — Sweep Attack Sweep Attack and Shield Bash Shield Bash — both by boosting their damage and adding cooldown reduction utility to their use. The guide below will focus on the Sweep Attack Sweep Attack build option; this control-heavy, sustain damage build is designed with Greater Rift solo progression in mind, but we also have a speed farming variant, which can be accessed using the link below.
