Caldesann's Thornsader

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Forgive me if this seems an uneducated question, but in learning about Caldesann's augmentation I have had the thought that as the basic Crusader requires Strength one would use Rubies in the Caldesann's augmentation. However, since the Thornsader utilises and thrives on a high thorns dps/output, would it make sense to Caldesann's augment the weapon with a Topaz instead? Apologies if this has been asked before: I'm a noob in forums. Thank you in advance :)

Augment only works for the main stats of the gem so the topaz would give you intelligence on the weapon.

I've done the mistake myself in my earlier seasons and was not happy :) So augments are always just towards the primary stat you want and in this case it's all STR from the rubies!

      Hey everybody, i've been theory crafting for a while on a LON Condemn Crusader

      The main point of this build is of course focused around condemn but also equipped Justice Lantern and Akarat's Awakening. and passives+spell effects to reach an effective 100% block chance.

      The main point of going with these items is to increase the dmg reduction compared to Unity and additional cooldown reduction from blocks with Akarat's Awakening - downside of the build is the lack of magical resistance - an other alternative was to swap the Coven's Criterion, although that still doesn't increase the survivability from magical damage, but basically makes one immune to any blockable attacks.

      I would like to hear the thoughts you guys have on the build and if you guys have any other suggestions to alternative build paths.
