|Sanctity of Battle, The Art of War, Righteous Vengeance|
Crusader Strike is a core paladin ability. It is an instant weapon strike that grants a charge of holy power and can activate procs. This ability is a melee special ability, not an actual spell, and therefore it is not affected by silence or spell school locking abilities (the other being Divine Storm). Like other strikes, however, it does not work with any disarm effects on. All damage dealt by the attack is physical.
Glyph of Crusader Strike
The paladin's only non talented source of holy power.
In Cataclysm, Crusader Strike will be a core ability for all paladins, gained at level 1. Retribution will get a talent that causes haste effects to lower the cooldown.
