Strategy Edit

The Dark Crusader's weakest affinity is to Air and Piercing, so casting Luft Fusion on a Piercing-type weapon helps to increase chances of inflicting damage. The Abdomen and Legs are the weakest spots. Chain attacks are not effective. Dark Crusader often uses Drain Heart to sap health from Ashley.

Etymology Edit

The terms "Crusader" and "Jihad" are both associated with the historic "holy wars" fought between the Christian Europeans and Islamic Middle-Easterners for control of the holy land, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. "Crusader" (meaning "under the cross" because they were wearing a cross on their outfit) was a term used to describe the soldiers of the Crusades, the European term for the holy wars.
