Crusade emboldens the paladin and her allies with the fervor of her righteous cause. The damage from the paladin's group's physical and magical bolt attacks is increased (heavy damage weighting). Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings increases the damage weighting effect. In addition, successful attacks have 10% chance that a deity specific flare will occur after the attack. Training in Spiritual Lore, Religion increases the odds of the flare triggering. Group members who share the same deity alignment with the caster will gain an additional 5% bonus to their flare chance.

The flare effect is plasma or disruption, not holy criticals.

Lore Benefits

Spiritual Lore, Blessings

Training in Blessings Lore increases damage weighting for one additional point for every 30 skill.

Spiritual Lore, Religion

Training in Religion Lore increases the flare chance. The total chance of a flare is 10% + (2% * seed 2 summation of ranks), with an additional 5% for group members converted to the same deity.


Initial cast:

You utter a pious chant and a divine force suddenly radiates around you.  The intensity of your patron's aid billows out from you in a wave of righteous indignation!
Astru basks in a divine force that suddenly surrounds her.
The divine force suddenly surrounds an orange tiger.

Wearing off:

The divine force surrounding you slowly fades away.


You feel your spiritual strength return as you are ready to continue on your crusade.

Deity-specific Flares:
