Laws of Justice is a Law Crusader skill, resembling the Salvation Paladin Aura.


The Law has a 60 yard radius. Only one Law skill per Crusader can be learned, but different Laws and different rune effects from several Crusaders stack. The amount of resistance gained scales with level, up to 140 and 490 at level 70. Basic effect of the same Laws from different Crusaders does not stack.

The empowered resistance bonus does not stack with the passive bonus.

Allies include followers, players, minions and pets.
