The Crusader is an advanced class from Heroes of Might and Magic IV, based on advancement in both Life Magic and Tactics skills. A hero needs at least two ranks of those skills to become a crusader.

A crusader always has a maximum positive morale (+10 morale).


The Crusader is most likely to learn Tactics and Life Magic and fairly likely to learn the Combat and Nobility skills. Crusaders can not learn Death Magic or Chaos magic when leveling up unless some basic training in those skills is already known.

Comment Edit

A Knight or Priest is a perfect candidate for crusader. It is arguably one of the best non-combat classes.

The Crusader is immune to the Sorrow spell.
