The Judgement rune

When invoked, blasts the targeted area (up to 60 yards away). It has a momentary action, having no effect on enemies that come into that area after the cast. Secondary effects trigger even if targets are immune to Immobilize.


  • Penitence: For every affected enemy, the Crusader gains additional Life regeneration for 3 seconds. This effect stacks. The amount of Life per second scales with level, up to 2682 per stack at level 70.
  • Mass Verdict: Before being Immobilized, enemies are drawn to the center of the area.
  • Deliberation: Increases duration to 10 seconds.
  • Resolved: Affected enemies also have additional 8% chance to be critically hit by all attacks.
  • Debilitate: Affected enemies also deal 40% reduced damage for 6 seconds.
