Diablo 3 – PTR 2.4 Crusader – Norvald’s Thorny Pony Build

Hey guys, today I show the Akkhan version of Thorny Pony build using Norvald’s Fervor set. This is a speed farm variation similar to the Chariot build but much easier to gear for. It’s also high greater rift capable with a slightly different setup and potentially working in Focus/Restraint (or even Convention of Elements). Enjoy & discuss!

  1. Good one. Another idea is to use Amethyst instead of Ruby which gives both Vit and Thorns

    Edit: I just found that by using Lord Commander passive, you dont need both Swift Mount and Narvold's Fervor. Rest of the build is secret thought 🙂

  2. I know this was done in the PTR but did they shadow nerf this build? I geared very similar to yours and not getting the success that you are. IE, popping iron skin def doesnt 1 shot elites in t10 rifts.

  3. i need some help, how do you get your toughness that high? im using the light set for crusader and its the only decent gear i have untill i finish my akhan set, im able to clear t5 solo and up to t6 but my toughness is stupid low, sitting around 8 million and change. if anyone could help thatd be greatly appreciated.

  4. Currently I am stuck at season journey achievement that you need to complete Torment X within 4 mins and I can not find anything to help me. I'm looking into this build to see if this will complete the achievement.

  5. unless im doing something majorly retarded ( which is quite possible lol ) , this doesnt work at all now 🙁 – with buffs all running i max at 750k thorns and get face rolled lol. guessing i missed a patch note or something, shame looked fun.

  6. Did you happen to try a build focused on keeping iron skin up? High CDR/In-geom or something? You lose swiftmount and cds may not match up well, but would equate to far more 1 shot mobs and less running back and forth over enemies. At least in theory.

  7. Hey there, looks kinda awesome to be honest~
    But I was wondering what about the normal "Stand and Block" thorn build? is it possible to create strong Thorn build without the Pony?

  8. Looks like a nice quick build for TX. I've been working on a Wizard speed build, fun stuff! Don't forget the pickup radius on gear, it really helps with the speed builds.
    I think a lot of people are going to want to have gold on hand next season. For TX Gold Farm, would dropping:
    Leorics + Holy Cause + Powerful for
    Lord Commander + Hoarder + Goldwrap be the way to go? (cube Belt of Trove, wear goldwrap, Invoker Helm, & Heart of Iron)
    Edit: or run without Goldwrap, use Hoarder for the gold, and use some other legendary (ring or armor) for additional damage or utility (avarice?)
