General Information

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

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

1. Speed Farming

The LoN Bombardment 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

For speed farming, you can abandon Consecration Consecration Bed of Nails Bed of Nails and branch out into Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels — one of the strongest, group-wide mobility buffs in the game.

The additional boost of DPS and survivability from Finery Finery can be overkill in speedrun environments however, and you can safely swap this slot out for Long Arm of the Law Long Arm of the Law to ensure permanent uptime of Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels.

3. Adapting Gear

In speed farming, it is advisable to abandon the additive damage increase from Strongarm Bracers Strongarm Bracers in favor of a utility legendary in the face of Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers, as the extra elite spawns shorten the time to the Guardian fight.

As for your weapon, replace progression-oriented options like Doombringer Doombringer and Swiftmount Swiftmount with In-geom In-geom — the speedy fights will feed into your weapon procs for permanent uptime of all your important cooldowns.

4. Adapting Gemming

Due to the lower monster healthpools when speed farming, the damage buildup mechanic of Bane of the Stricken Bane of the Stricken loses a lot of its value and is best replaced by the overall damage boost of Bane of the Powerful Bane of the Powerful.
