      Hi everyone!

      As you might know there is a video of a crusader killing ghom in 4 seconds (here) with a lot of thorns damage (20k more or less), looks like it is an exploit since he does around 20m of damage per hit.

      The idea behind this is:
      Get all critical damage you can.
      Around 40% of critical chance (the more the better)
      Get the max of thorns damage as you can with gear.
      Remember that strength increases thorns damage.
      And gear that increases physical damage also increases thorns damage.

      Average stats at T6:
      ~ 9 - 10mil Gold/h
      ~ 1.5 - 2bil Exp/h
      ~ 2 - 3 Legendaries/h

      What it does:
      • Kills Ghom

      Settings In trinity plugin:
      • Set shield glare aoe count to 1
      • Set Iron skin health pact to 99

      Requires:
      • QuestTools
      • The latest version of Trinity (1.8.12) link.
      • The latest version of Demonbuddy
      • In trinity plugin Config > Crusader > Scroll down > Set Ghom gas to radius to 2 and health to 0
      • Have quest 3.3 Kill Ghom

      The recommended crusader build for this profile:

      Shield Bash (No rune) -> Charging Ghom to enter Combat
      Akarat's Champion (Rally) -> Reduces Cooldown of other Skills when dealing damage. This can make it possible to use a spell twice, just in case.
      Judgement (Resolved) -> Adds 80% Crit-Chance (Just in case)
      Laws of Valor (Critical) -> Adds 100% Crit-Chance
      Shield Clare (Divine Verdic) -> 20% more DMG
      Iron Skin (Reflect) -> 200% Thorn Damage
      Finery (Passive) -> Depends on the number of gems *Optional*
      Heavenly Strength (Passive)
      Iron Maiden (Passive)
      Hold your Ground (Passive)

      Crusader - Build for this profile

      Special thanks to:

      Kickazz006 for the dev copy.
      xEzitx for Act 3 Depths 1,2,3,Ghom, which this profile is based from.
      rrrix for waypoint portal method and updating Trinity plugin.
      stefan2812 for posting his build and link to calculator.
      Cyp for his explanation for dummies.

      Use it at your own risk

      TL;DR:

      You deal tons of thorns damage.
      Get gear that has tons of "damage dealt to ranged and melee attackers increased by XXX".
      Then get yourself critical hit damage.
      Then get strength.

      Crusader - Build for this profile

      No longer works, fixed in 29/03/2014, was fun while it lasted. Welp the profile works fine, just that is no longer profitable to run it even in T1.

      Thus far, it seems that LPH is around 1-2/hr.

      Getting close to 50 games an hour on T5 (T6 had some deaths due to bot lagging at start) and thus far the drop rate is 2 per hour.

      I have been quite lucky so far, with my own interpretation of this profile:

      This are my average stats:

      ~ 9 - 10mil Gold/h
      ~ 1.5 - 2bil Exp/h
      ~ 2 - 3 Legendarys/h

      This is my Build:

      Shield Bash (No rune) -> Charging Ghom to enter Combat
      Akarat's Champion (Rally) -> Reduces Cooldown of other Skills when dealing damage. This can make it possible to use a spell twice, just in case.
      Judgement (Resolved) -> Adds 80% Crit-Chance (Just in case)
      Laws of Valor (Critical) -> Adds 100% Crit-Chance
      Shield Clare (Divine Verdic) -> 20% more DMG
      Iron Skin (Reflect) -> 200% Thorn Damage
      Finery (Passiv)
      Heavenly Strength (Passive)
      Iron Maiden (Passive)
      Hold your Ground (Passive)

      I did make minor modifications to the CrusaderCombat.cs (Trinity) to make sure, he charges GHOM first (using shield bash) and then use all CDs. This works in 9 out of 10 Runs.
      The rune of Akarat's Champion, makes it possible to use Shield Glare and Iron Skin a second time, IF ghom survives the first cooldowns (for whatever reason, this happens every now and then. Guess thats because of unlucky positioning)

      You also need to set the "HP" slider to 0. So its at "Radius=1" and "Health % = 0". Hope this helps you.



      This is the stat priority you should follow: Thorns > CritDMG >= Strength > Defense of any kind

      Critical hit chance is irrelevant, since you gain 100% crit chance through your spells. So just look for items with high strength and "damage to melee and range attackers".

      I got 18k Thorns, 6,9k Strength and CritDmg: 405%

      It takes about 4-5 seconds to kill ghom with this stats. (This matches exactly 1 spell duration, thats why I die every now and then...)

      Ghom gas set to minimum. Trinity 1.8.12 has a minimum radius of 2.
      My health is set to 100% as default.

      This has also been told by the OP :)

      quick question. how can i change the routine of the crusader? i got maras on one of my bots, so he is not dying, but he would if i would not be wearing it.

      the bot starts with blind which causes ghom to sometimes run in the opposite direction or to walk weirdly and then the bot cant 1 shot him because the iron skin runs out.

      so doing the skills in a different order would be cool.

      sometimes the profile will also just stand in the first gas of ghom for a bit. or sometimes get into a loop for a while after it killed whom in town. anybody else had this problem?

      takes away from my xp/h :<

      other than that, great stuff! runs MOSTLY very smooth and gains are sick! :D


      P.S. also. i cannot find a line to change the death timer to "1" so if he dies just leave game and create new one. with ur profile one of my bots dies, still has all cool-downs and re-enters the instance and dies right again. thats not good! :) can you add it pls?
