Diablo 3 Thorns of the Invoker Punish Crusader Build

This build is pretty unique. By using the Invoker set bonus, you do massive damage with your Thorns. In addition, the build boasts a high speed of rift clearing – Steed Charge will allow you to quickly move from one elite pack to another in rifts. And it’s not even worth talking about tanking and survivability – this Crusader will be able to remain unharmed even while fighting several elite packs of demons at the same time.
