Crusaders are a fine blend of physical strength and faith-driven magic prowess, making them a versatile class. They are capable of melee combat with a spear or a sword and shield, of playing a supportive role in parties with beneficial magic skills, and of sacrificing their health to wield powerful holy magic. Knowing this, they can be built more like a mage than a warrior, or a classic favorite is to play the crusader like a tank. What makes this class so popular is the versatility, it's natural aim towards fighting the Undead, and its centralization around having high VIT and Defense.

Job Change Guide

See Crusader Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Crusader from a Swordman requires the player to complete a number of tasks:

  • Item Collection
  • Endurance Test
  • Written Test
  • Battle Test

After completing these tests, the player will be transformed into a Crusader. Most of this takes place inside of the Prontera Castle. (234,314)


Check the Swordsman Guild section of the forums for Crusader guides, made by the community for the community.


Recovering HP or Healing Items

When mobbing or tanking groups of monsters, especially for AoE leveling, Healing Items WILL need to be consumed and often even spammed. One popular healing item is Fresh Fish due to its cheap cost and low weight. It can be purchased from the Chef's Assistant in the center of Prontera (156, 212) as well as other locations for only 250z each (190z with max Discount).

General Equipment Recommendations

Main article: Equipment

The Equipment article lists some general all purpose equipment that is useful through the PVM phase and also for endgame use as well.


After considering what requirement skills have (some skills can only be used with certain weapon types), the Control Panel Item Search is very useful. Generally, for physical classes (both melee and ranged), something with high ATK is best. For magic classes, something with high MATK is best.
