Crusader Seeker of the Light Fresh 70 Starter Build (Patch 2.7.2 / Season 25)
This build is a starter build for fresh Level 70 Crusaders who have access to the Seeker of the Light set.
This guide is part of our Crusader Seasonal Progress Guide, which also includes a leveling build and other early builds for fresh 70 characters.

How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation
The Seeker of the Light starter build is a natural continuation of the leveling and fresh 70 build, as the set itself augments the powers of Blessed Hammer. Your main resource tool remains Provoke, trading turns with Gabriel's Vambraces for Wrath management in AoE and single target situations, respectively. With resources taken care of, you are free to swap away Unstoppable Force for the additional damage of Critical (useful early on with subpar gear), or to Laws of Hope Wings of Angels to speed yourself up. You will be trading the generic leveling choices like Steed Charge and Condemn for skills that better synergize with your set: Falling Sword Rapid Descent for mobility and protection, and Judgment Debilitate for crowd control and debuffing. Note that as soon as you obtain a Sacred Harness, you should swap the latter's rune to the damage-oriented Resolved. The ubiquitous Akarat's Champion remains in the build, as well as all the leveling passives (of course, with an adjustment to Fervor as soon as you obtain Johanna's Argument).
