Phalanx is a Utility Crusader skill.


When cast, the Crusader sends forth three Avatars of the Order at the targeted enemy or location, up to 40 yards away. The Avatars move with 200% movement speed until they reach their target or move 40 yards, disappearing afterwards. Any enemy they reach suffers damage, but the Avatars pierce through them.


  • Bowmen: no longer sends the march forward, instead summoning four Archer Avatars who follow the Crusader for 5 seconds and shoot arrows for 185% damage as Physical. Removes Wrath cost, but adds a 15 second cooldown.
  • Shield Charge: before disappearing, Avatars also perform one Shield Bash each, dealing 180% damage as Physical.
  • Stampede: the Avatars are mounted, inflicting up to 20 yards Knockback to enemies they reach, with 25% chance to Stun them for 2 seconds.
  • Shield Bearer: the Avatars no longer move, instead standing for 5 seconds at the casting location. The shield wall is impassable for enemies, and if they try to break through it, the Avatars inflict 490% damage as Physical and knock them back up to 20 yards. Adds a 15 seconds cooldown.
  • Bodyguard: no longer sends the march forward, instead summoning two Avatars that follow the Crusader for 10 seconds. Each Avatar attacks for 560% damage as Physical. Adds a 30 seconds cooldown.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit

  • Eternal Union (Legendary Ring): increases the duration by 200% for Bowmen and Bodyguard runes.
  • Unrelenting Phalanx (Legendary Crusader Shield): increases damage by 45-60%, and casts Phalanx twice per use, either summons twice as many Avatars of the Order, or just summons two waves with a brief delay.
  • Warhelm of Kassar (Legendary Helm): reduces the cooldown and increases the damage of Phalanx by 45-60%.
  • Enforcer (Legendary Gem): increases damage by 15% (+0.3% per rank) and reduces damage taken by 25% (rank 25 bonus) for Bowmen and Bodyguard runes.
