General Information

On this page, we explain everything that is specific to the Speed Farming variant of Invoker Thorns Crusader. Updated for patch 2.6 and Season 11.

The other pages of our Invoker Thorns Crusader guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Speed Farming

The Invoker Thorns Crusader deals with regular Rift farming decently all the way through the highest Torments, making it a viable build for the task.

Within the limited scope of regular difficulties, the necessary damage and toughness to triumph over the enemy is significantly smaller. Thus, your best course of action is to improve utility and speed.

2. Adapting Skills

Passive Skills

When speedfarming, the additional durability of Laws of Justice Laws of Justice will be overkill, so you can safely swap this slot out for the movement speed buffs of Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels.

In speed farming where blocking is of lesser concern compared to mobility, you should take Long Arm of the Law Long Arm of the Law for the improved uptime of Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels.

3. Adapting Gemming

When doing speedruns, health values will be a significantly smaller barrier, diminishing the value of Bane of the Stricken Bane of the Stricken; you would do well to replace it with the well-rounded damage and toughness increase of Bane of the Powerful Bane of the Powerful.

4. Adapting Kanai's Cube

In regular Rift farming, the pace at which you kill elites facilitates the use of the most potent source of cooldown reduction in your weapon Cube slot — In-geom In-geom. As long as you fuel its power by regularly bursting down elites, it will practically ensure permanent uptime of all of your important cooldowns.
