Welcome to Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions page. On this page, we will talk about the best characters who are not already mentioned in our Raid Shadow Legends Tier List. Chosen Heroes will not be ranked because everyone is perfect for some game segment so we will introduce them according to their affiliation to the certain faction in the same order as in the game. Every Hero will be fully described and we will suggest his role in Raid Shadow Legends. Enjoy!martyr venus valkyrie elder skarg FU-SHAN dracomorph HAKKORHN SMASHLORD BRAKUS THE SHIFTER harvest jack vizier ovelis trunda giltmalet maulie tankard defiled sinner
Martyr is a Legendary Defense Champion from the Sacred Order Faction. Her affinity is Spirit meaning that she is strong against Force characters and weak against Magic characters.
She is slow and her Attack Power is low but her Damage Reduction and Health are incredibly high. Martyr is definitely one of the best Tanks in the game. Her Aura increases DEF by 33% in all battles and Her Suppression skill places Provoke and Decrease Attack debuff on all enemies. At the top of that, she can additionally increase DEF to all allies by 60% and grant them counterattack for 2 turns. Her basic attack is not that strong but it has a decent chance to apply Decrease DEF debuff for 2 turns with each strike.
As you can see Martyr is specialized to protect the team in the best way while allowing them to punish anyone who attacks them. Her skillset is ideal for the Arena, Faction Wars and some Campaign missions although she could be very useful in Clan Boss battles as well. If we talk about Dungeons, obviously that her importance is greater than the majority of other Champions but I think that there are better solutions which are specialized for each Dungeon.
Martyr’s equipment should be focused on HP%, Defense%, Speed and Accuracy and she should wear 1 Lifesteal Set and 1 Speed Set.
Venus is a Legendary Support Champion from the Sacred Order Faction. Her affinity is Void meaning that she doesn’t have advantages or disadvantages against other Champions.
She is very fast and has more Health than many other Tanks but her Attack and Defense are mediocre. Venus is a master debuffer who does not particularly strengthen the team but who can literally devastate enemy defenses with negative effects.
Her skills target all enemies and have a good chance to apply HP burn, Decrease DEF and Weaken debuff to each opponent for 2 turns. Her basic skill attacks the single target two times and each strike has a 50% chance to apply Poison for 2 turns. Her damage output is not high but it is considerably greater compared to other Support Champions. Venus has a special synergy with Cupidus that allows her to execute a secret skill that enables her to remove all buffs from enemies with a decent chance that she plays again after using it. Venus Aura is also powerful and it increases the Health of all allies by 33% in battles.
Venus is a versatile Champion whose virtues can be used in all segments of Raid Shadow Legends. Being a Void Champion with multiple AOE attacks makes her desirable in any situation but it needs to be said that she is not the best in any category, although it may seem opposite.
Venus equipment should be focused on Attack%, Speed and Accuracy. Giving her Speed Set and Lifesteal Set is probably the safest option but there are also other possibilities.
Valkyrie is a Legendary Defense Champion from the Barbarians Faction. Her affinity is Spirit, so she is strong against Force and weak against Magic. Unlike the majority of Defense Champions,
Valkyrie is very fast at the cost of her Health which is a little higher than average Damage Dealer. On the other hand, her Defense is amazing and enables her to withstand anything that comes in her way. Her Attack Power is really small but that doesn’t matter since Valkyrie’s skill damage is dependable on her Defense.
Her main strength is her ability to increase her Turn Meter whenever the enemy place buff on themselves and to decrease the Turn Meter of all enemies who are about to receive buffs. Every single buff counts and that combined with Valkyrie’s speed means that she will play twice as much if she is against adversaries who rely on buffs. Besides that, Valkyrie has a skill that heavily damages all opponents and places Shield (3 Turns) and Counterattack (2 Turns) to all allies. Her basic ability delivers 2 strikes to the single target and each strike additionally decreases Turn Meter of the unfortunate opponent. She also has an Aura that increases Ally DEF in Faction Crypts by 33%.
Valkyrie is not a typical Defense Champion because her main purpose is not to protect herself and the team but to deliver constant damage to her opponents. She should be used in the Arena, Campaign, Faction Wars, and some Dungeons.
Her equipment must be focused on Defense%, Speed, Critical, rate and Critical Damage while she benefits the most from 2 Defense Sets and 1 Speed Set.
Elder Skarg is a Legendary Attack Champion from the barbarians Faction. His affinity is Force which means that he is strong against Magic and weak against Spirit Champions.
His Attack Power is amazing and it is one of the highest in the game. He is also very fast for a single-target damage dealer and he has a decent amount of Health but his Defense is low. Elder Skarg is specialized for single targets although he can apply mass fear.
His main attack skill delivers 3 strikes to the single target and causes 1 extra strike per each buff or debuff on the target up to the maximum of 3 extra strikes. This skill is devastating because it unleashes full Elder Skarg’s Attack Power up to 6 times against the single target which is usually enough to kill any opponent in the Arena. His basic attack strikes the single target once and applies Increased Speed on Elder Skarg if the strike is critical. If the strike is not critical it greatly increases his Critical Rate instead. Elder Skarg has an Aura that increases Critical Rate by 30% to all allies in the Arena and he has a passive ability that decreases the Damage Received from Legendary Champions by 15%.
It is obvious that Elder Skarg’s role should be bound to Arena Offense and Arena Defense but he could be used in some Dungeons (Fire Knight’s Castle) as well.
Elder Skarg should be equipped with Attack%, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, and Speed gear. Combining 1 Speed Set and 2 Critical Damage Sets is the best solution for maximizing Elder Skarg’s damage output.
Fu-Shan is a Legendary Attack Champion from the Lizardmen Faction. His affinity is Force meaning that he is strong against Magic and weak against Spirit Champions.
All Stats of Fu-Shan are above average except extremely high Speed.
He has a skill that strikes 4 times randomly with a 50% chance to apply a 60% Decrease DEF debuff with each strike. His other skill attacks all targets two times with a 20% chance to apply Stun on each target. Statistics say that after executing Frightful Claws (the name of the second skill) there is more than 90% chance that 2 enemies are stunned for the next turn, which is amazing. His basic skill simply transfers his Attack Power to the single target once with a 25% chance to repeat that action again. At the top of all that, Fu-Shan has an Aura that increases Speed by 24% in all battles and that is extremely useful in Arena Offense.
Obviously, Fu-Shan is a damage dealer who can be used with success in all Dungeons and whose role in the Arena should not be underestimated. His damage output is not as great as Zavia’s, but his ability to cast “multi-stun” and cause serious damage at the same time is what makes him special.
Fu-Shan’s gear should be focused on Attack%, Speed, Accuracy, and Critical Rate. For the Arena, he should be equipped with 2 Divine Offense and 1 Divine Speed Set (not-divine sets are usable also) while for other segments he should be equipped with Lifesteal Set and Speed Set.
Dracomorph is a Legendary Attack Champion from the Lizardmen Faction. His affinity is Magic which means that he is strong against Spirit and weak against Force.
Dracomorph’s base Stats are similar to Fu-Shan’s except Dracomorph is slower and has greater Attack.
Dracomorph is the Champion who applies all the nasty debuffs you like to see on the enemy with 100% certainty (unless it is resisted). Ability to apply 25% Weaken and 60% Decrease DEF for 2 turns is probably the best debuff skill in the entire game. Dracomorph also has a skill that attacks 4 times randomly and applies Poison for 3 Turns with each strike. This skill is especially effective against Dungeon Bosses since it can apply up to 4 Poison debuffs instantly. His basic attack targets a single enemy once and its damage increases by 10% for each debuff applied on that target. If he kills an enemy with the basic attack he automatically attacks 1 random enemy with the surplus of damage from the first attack multiplied by 3. Dracomorph’s Aura increases the Accuracy of all allies in Faction Crypts by 50.
Dracomorph is ideal Champion for facing Clan Boss, Dragon’s Lair and Minotaur’s Labyrinth although he could be used in Arena Offense as well.
He should be equipped with gear focused on Accuracy, Attack%, and Speed while 1 Speed Set and 2 Offense Sets are the obvious and safest choice.
Hakkorhn Smashlord is a Legendary HP Champion from the Skinwalkers Faction. His affinity is magic which means that he is strong against Spirit and weak against Force.
He is very fast for a HP Champion and the amount of his Health is one of the greatest in the game. His Defense is mediocre and attack is very low but since all his damage output depends on his health that doesn’t really matter.
Hakkorhn Smashlord sacrifices his health to inflict enormous damage against all enemies. The damage output of this ability is 50% of Hakkorhn’s Max health meaning that he can devastate enemy ranks with just one ability. He is also able to remove all debuffs from the entire team and to heal all allies for a portion of his Health. This healing can be even more increased depending on the number of debuffs he removed. His basic attack strikes a single target once and has a 40% chance to apply Stun. Hakkorhn also has an Aura that increases HP of all allies in all battles by 33%.
As you can see Hakkorhn Smashlord can be used with great success in almost all segments of the game except in Clan Boss battles and Fire Knight Castle. Spider Dan is another Dungeon which is not ideal for Hakkorhn but since he has one devastating AOE he is a definitely better solution that some other single-target based Champions.
Ideal gear for Hakkorhn Smashlord is HP%, Speed, Critical Rate and Critical Damage while he must be equipped with Lifesteal set and Speed Set because he needs constant healing. Hakkorhn’s AOE is one of the strongest in the game but that is not the only reason why he deserved his place in Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List.
brakus the shifter
Brakus the Shifter is a Legendary Attack Champion form the Skinwalkers Faction. His affinity is Force implicating that he is strong against Magic and weak against Spirit.
Brakus is fast and he has a huge amount of Health if we consider that he is an Attack Champion. On the other hand, his damage sustain is minimal and his attack is not as high as the attack of other Top Attack Champions.
That is because he has a passive ability which increases his damage output by 40% when his health drops below 40%. Additionally, this passive ability grants him one Revive upon death with 20% of Health restored. Brakus is probably the best single-target damage dealer in Raid Shadow Legends at the moment. Hunter’s Howl ability increases the Attack of all allies for 3 turns and then strikes the selected target 3 times in the row. Each hit has a 50% chance to apply True Fear for 1 turn, and an additional 50% chance to apply Fear on 2 random enemies if the True Fear is applied. Fool Moon Rampage ability is even stronger. It attacks the single enemy 6 times in the row (!!??!!) and heals Brakus for a 25% of inflicted damage. This healing is even greater if the target is under True Fear or Fear debuff. Also, after the first hit, there is a 75% chance that Brakus apply Weaken on unfortunate target. His basic skill is not overpowered as other 2 skills – it strikes primary target once and heals Brakus for 15% of inflicted damage.
Brakus is the best Champion in the game for Fire Knight’s Castle but he can be used in other game segments as well as Arena Offense, Dragon’s Lair or Minotaur’s Labyrinth.
Ideal equipment for Bracus should be focused on Attack%, Speed, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, and Accuracy. Since he already has 2 abilities with Lifesteal it would be wise that he is equipped with 2 Divine Offense Sets and 1 Divine Speed Set. Brakus is on the Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List for a reason and he should not be underestimated.
Harvest Jack is a Legendary HP Champion from Undead Faction. His affinity is Spirt which indicates that he is strong against Force and weak against Magic Champions.
His Health pool is incredible and he is very fast for HP Champions but his Defense and Attack are below average.
Two of his skills attacks all enemies and the damage is based on his Health so his damage output is very high regardless of his low attack. Lord of Terror ability attacks all enemies and has a 75% chance to place a True Fear debuff on each target. If True Fear is not applied there is a 75% chance to place Sleep instead, but if True Fear is applied it also places 30% Decreased Speed for 2 turns and decreases each target’s Turn Meter by 15%. Dreams to Ash ability also attacks all enemies and places Block Buffs debuff on every target that already has the Fear debuff. Additionally, this skill flips Increase Attack buff into Decrease Attack debuff and Continuous Heal buff into Poison debuff (the number of Poison debuffs is equal to the number of Continuous Heal buffs removed). Harvest Jack’s basic skill is known as Harvest of Fear and it attacks one target 3 times. Each hit has a slight chance to steal buffs and the same chance to apply Fear. If all buffs are stolen, the chance of applying Fear is increased to 100%. Harvest Jack’s passive ability enables him to decrease the duration of buffs to any Champion that attacks him.
Harvest Jack can be successfully used in Arena, Campaign or Force Keep.
Best gear for him should be based on HP%, Speed and Accuracy while 1 Lifesteal set and 1 Speed set should utilize his abilities in the best possible way.
The qualities of Harvest Jack are usually overlooked but when you equip him correctly and start to rely on his virtues you will see that his place in Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List is well deserved.
Vizier Ovelis is a Legendary Attack Champion from the Dark Elves Faction. Vizier’s affinity is Force which means that he is Strong against Magic and weak against Spirit Champions.
His stats are average compared to other Champions of the same type but his skill set is something that sets him apart.
At the start of each battle, Vizier applies Perfect Veil on self for 2 turns. Vizier of Poisons ability attacks one enemy and spreads 2 random negative effects from that enemy to all other enemies. If the target has 2 or more debuffs on self before executing Vizier of Poisons, Vizier applies Perfect Veil on self for 3 turns. Master of Misery skill strikes one target twice. Each hit has a 50% chance to apply Block Buffs debuff, Decrease Attack debuff and Heal Reduction Debuff for 2 turns. Vizier’s basic ability strikes primary target 3 times in a row with a 35% chance to decrease all debuffs by 1 turn with each hit. Vizier also has an Aura that increases the Attack of all allies in Dungeons by 34%.
Vizier is ideal for Fire Knight’s Castle and Clan Boss battles, although he can be very successful in Dragon’s Lair, Spirit Keep, Magic Keep, Ice Golem’s Peak, Force Keep, and Void Keep as well. Placing him in the Arena team could be smart but truth to be told there are much better options.
If you chose to Put Vizier in your Arena team be sure to equip him with 2 Divine Offense Sets and 1 Divine Speed set, otherwise he should be equipped with 1 Lifesteal Set and 1 Speed Set. All pieces of his gear should be based primarily on Attack%, Accuracy, and Speed while Critical Chance and Critical Damage gear could be helpful for certain builds.
Vizier Ovelis is one of the Champions whose usefulness exceeds placement on the Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List.
Trunda Giltmalet is a Legendary Attack Champion from the Dwarves Faction. Her affinity is Magic indicating that she is strong against Spirit and weak against Force Champions.
Trunda’s stats are amazing. Her health pool is higher than the majority of HP Champions and her attack is one of the greatest in the game. She is fast but not too fast compared to other Attack Champions and her Defense is decent for her type.
Like all Dwarves, she has increased Resist but her resist can be even higher since it increases by 10 to up to 100 for each Stun debuff Trunda applies on opponents. Besides that, Trunda also can passively increase her speed by up to 15 according to the number of HP Burn debuffs placed on enemies. Forge Rhythm ability is extremely powerful and it delivers obliterating damage to all enemies with a 70% chance to place Stun debuff on each enemy for 1 turn. If the Stun is successful than HP Burn is placed as well, while Enemies who are not affected with Stun receive another strike from Trunda. Cloak of Ages ability unleashes the full power of Trunda’s Attack on the single target and after that inflicts a portion of original damage on all other targets. Trunda’s basic ability strikes the primary target twice with a 50% chance to apply Stun debuff for 1 turn after the second strike. Trunda’s Aura is also very potent and it increases the Attack of all Magic allies by 36%.
Trunda’s skillset is very versatile enabling her to be successfully used in all game segments except Clan Boss battles, Fire Knight’s Castle and Force Keep (she is useful even in mentioned modes but there are much better choices). It is important to say that Trunda is, without a doubt, one of the best Champions for the Arena. For PVP she needs 2 Divine Offense Set and 1 Divine Speed set while Lifesteal Set and Speed Set should be given her for PVE.
Her gear should be focused exclusively on Attack%, Speed, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, and Accuracy.
Trunda Giltmalet is amazing in every way and her placement in Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List is natural.
Maulie Tankard is a Legendary Support Champion from the Dwarves Faction. Her affinity is Spirit, so she is strong against Force and weak against Magic Champions.
Maulie is a Support Champion but her stats are similar or even better than most Defense Champions and she is fast as hell.
Her passive ability increases the Turn Meter of all allies every time she is hit by an enemy (if she is hit by the Boss increment is even greater). She can also Revive any ally who dies with 50% Health and with Block Damage buff applied for 1 turn. Bar Brawl ability places Provoke on all enemies for 1 turn with the chance that each target receives Provoke debuff for 2 turns instead. At the same time, she places Reflect Damage buff on herself. Her basic ability strikes the primary target once and inflicts additional damage if the target has HP Burn debuff applied.
Maulie Tankard has a great synergy with Trunda Giltmalet and two of them together are almost unbeatable in the Arena. Truth to be told that is the sole reason why Maulie Tankard is placed on Raid Shadow Legend Best Champions List in the first place since she has no many other uses in the game.
Maulie should be built like a tank since she is actually a tank and not Support so her equipment should be focused only on Defense%, HP%, and Speed. She does not benefit much from the Lifesteal Set which indicates that she should be equipped with some other Sets. My suggestion is 1 Retaliation Set or 1 Frost Set and 1 Defense Set.
Defiled Sinner is an Epic Attack Champion from the Undead Hordes Faction. His affinity is Force meaning that he is strong against Magic and weak against Spirit Champions.
This is the only Epic Champion on Raid Shadow Legends Best Champion list and his Stats are average at best while his Speed is below average for his class. The only purpose why I have chosen to place the Defiled Sinner the list is because he is ideal for Spider’s Den Dungeon.
Corrosive Smog skill attacks all enemies and its damage is increased for each enemy on the battlefield. Ripe of Slaughter ability inflicts full strength of Defiled Sinner’s attack to the single target and if it kills the target it delivers damage equal to the portion of their Health to all other enemies. Defiled Sinner’s basic ability attacks one target and has a 50% chance to apply Decrease Defense debuff for 2 turns before attacking, but if there are 5 or more enemies it attacks all enemies and places Increased Attack buff on Defiled Sinner before attacking instead.
As you can see all Defiled Sinner’s abilities are made to deal with spiderlings and he will definitely help you to prevail in annoying Spider’s Den fight.
Defiled Sinner should be equipped with 1 Life steal and 1 Speed Set, while his equipment should be focused on Attack%, Speed, Critical Rate and Critical Damage.
You may say that this Champion does not deserve the place in Raid Shadow Legends Best Champions List but I wanted to pinpoint one Epic Champion who is specialized for certain game segments and my choice is newly introduced Defiled Sinner.
