Motto of a crusader : Hurt me to hurt your self.


You cross breed a Knight with a Priest and what you get is a Crusader.
There is no class which is at par with crusaders who are masters of defensive skills. While they do not possess the raw power of Blacksmiths nor the skilled attacks of Knights, they make up this with the ability to withstand heaviest of attacks. In short they can be called moving fortresses. And unlike knights they have some magical attacks who can just inflict physical injuries, they have one of the most damaging skills of all - Grand Cross
