  1. Rahara

    Can we assume his Arcane rating is 5 stars?

  2. Ayumilove Post author

    @Kronus @Arraquin: Aothar’s A2 skill description has been updated!

  3. Kronus

    As pointed out already by Arraquin one year ago, the description of A2 is outdated. It actually says in-game “Attacks 4 times at random. Each hit places a 5% [Poison] debuff for 2 turns.”

  4. Shizukuishi

    My starter CB team now does 5.5 million damage on CBH. New record for the FTP account.

    Though Kael did most of the damage at 2.6 million, Aothar came in just under 1.5 million damage using Define Offensive, Crit Rate, and Perception gear. I thought about using Toxic gear, but the buff is only 2.5%, so I decided otherwise. Eventually, I will bench Kael, just like I benched Sniper, once a better poison or defense down champ is viable.

  5. Dogeman42069

    For CB, why not build Toxic to double-down on poison instead of Life Steal. I feel like his hits are soo weak, the LS isn’t enough healing.

  6. Steve Colvin

    Just replaced Draco with Aothar on my Myth/Heiress team, not because he’s better, but he’s Spirit friendly and it frees up my Draco to be used elsewhere. He does about 10M less, but it’s still an easy 50m+ UNM team.

  7. Arraquin

    “Attacks 4 times at random. Places a 5% [Poison] debuff for 2 turns.” This needs an update. It’s one poison per hit.

  8. OurArtIsMurder

    @Little Turtle: very helpful, thank you so much!

  9. Little Turtle

    @Kevin Rowe No, if you have dracomorph there is no need for you to build aothar since dracomorph is objectively a better poisoner who does more damage and brings better debuffs for your team (Weaken and Decrease Def)

  10. Little Turtle

    @OurArtIsMurder It sounds like you have more than enough poison damage on the team with skullcrusher’s Counter Attack and Frozen Banshee so instead of building another poisoner you should probably just focus on trying to survive more turns so that your poisons can tick for more damage. In this case I’d probably try to sub out kael for someone who brings some useful buffs for your team like ally protect or increase defense because both of those buffs will help you survive for a lot longer than you currently are if you keep them up correctly during the fight. Also kael is probably causing you to do less damage overall since his A1 applies weak poison which just eats up a debuff slot on the clan boss (you can only have 10 debuffs on at once) so if you do decide to change out anyone on the team Kael should definitely be the first to go.

  11. OurArtIsMurder

    So my current CB team is Teela Goremane, Skullcrusher, Kael, Fahrakin the Fat and Frozen Banshee. It currently does around 10-11M of damage with 2 keys, and obviously I’m trying to increase that; so, should I build Aothar (just got him in a blue shard) and replace him with Kael or someone else? I’m grateful for any suggestions that I may get, thanks in advance!

  12. marcusant

    @Trigonometry because with enouhg acc he can poison him by 5% poison four times every third turn. In combination with another good poisoner and poison sensitivier or defense downer, you can deliver very high damage.

  13. Trigonometry

    Why is this champion worth five stars for clan boss?

  14. Mappey

    @mrshovel, it only means the chanse is 100%, u still need accuracy to make sure he doesnf resist it, its a different thing

  15. MrShovel

    Does Aothar need accuracy, because all of his abilities say place rather than having a chance to place?

  16. Kevin Rowe

    Hi everyone, first time poster. This is a great site for newbies like myself.

    If I had a Dracomorph (Which I do) would there be any need for a Aothar?

  17. The ThikPickl

    I’m just not a fan of Aothar, I’ve tried a few different gear sets and mastery combo’s and he just doesn’t get used in any line up, not even weak affinity CB. If you build him fast, he is squishy, build him for survivability and he is slow and hits like daisy, built him to hit hard and he is squishy again…just hard to find a balance that makes him usable. My humble opinion.

  18. Ralph

    @Teacup 4x poisons

  19. Teacup

    Attacks 4 times at random. Places a 5% [Poison] debuff for 2 turns.

    So 4X poison or just 1?

  20. Gaz Mon

    @Totolas Ticot
    Thanks for the response! I was hoping that was how it worked but wasn’t sure. I appreciate the clarification.

  21. Totolas Ticot

    @Gaz Mon
    a gear set that would give 40 ACC will give 40 by 1.15 = 46 instead
    a gear set that would give 12% speed will give 13.8% instead
    a gear set that would give 15% ATK will give 17.25% instead
    et caetera

  22. Gaz Mon

    I love this site as other wise I’d have no clue as to equipment, strengths, etc. I do have a question hopefully someone can help me understand.
    The Lore of Steel mastery is described as: “Increases the Base Stat Set Bonuses of all Artifact sets that increase Base Stats by 15%. This increase is multiplicative, not additive.”

    What does that mean (in simple terms)? Thanks!

  23. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    If Aothar is being used outside of the Clan Boss at all, I’d recommend taking Cycle of Violence instead of Cycle of Magic (and personally, I’d choose Evil Eye instead of Lore of Steel, especially if you’re using a Lifesteal or other set that doesn’t benefit from Lore of Steel). Aothar frequently does do a lot of damage to trash mobs, which can trigger a cooldown reduction pretty often compared to Cycle of Magic (which is just a set 5% chance every turn). Then, unlike Cycle of Magic, Cycle of Violence can allow Aothar to use his A2 and his A3 more often, which in turn can trigger Cycle of Violence to reduce the cooldown … etc.

    For Clan Boss only, I’d still with Ayumilove’s suggestions above.

  24. Meliodas

    His A2 places poisons on EACH hit. Pls update this…

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Guy Ridgway: Aothar is mainly use for Clan Boss for his Poisons. Most of the Accuracy stats can be obtained from Equipment Accuracy Set, Accuracy Glyphs and Great Hall Mastery. This will easily help you achieve 200~300 Accuracy. 250 Accuracy will be sufficient for end-game content. However, if you want to push above 300 Accuracy, you will need to get Eagle-Eye. The only scenario that you only need Eagle-Eye is you are using that particular champion against high resist enemy or champion such as in the Arena, where enemy player build their Arena Defense champion with high resist.

  26. Guy Ridgway

    Hi why did you not go for Eagle-eye? i thought this would be good for him

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @Eraser: Giant Slayer boost up your Champion’s damage output in Clan Boss by 3~5 times depending on how long you last in battle compared to Master Hexer. I would go with Giant Slayer first before Master Hexer.

  28. Eraser


    Do i take at first Giant Slayer or Master Hexer to do more dammage at the CB?


  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @GazMon: Some champions skills are unlocked or become a better version once the Champion is Ascended to at least 3-Stars using Potions in Tavern.

  30. GazMon

    NM – I figured it out. There’s so much to learn about this game & nowhere to get any info except from You Tube videos it seems. And while I’ve seen some very good videos, there are all sorts of things they don’t cover that I wish there were some sort of manual or reference. 🙁

  31. GazMon

    New player here. I got Aothar & leveled him to 5* / 50, using the suggested equipment guide after reading up on him here (I hugely appreciate these guides!). I’ve been using him against CB for his buff steal – tho wish it were higher than 15% – and poison debuff. However, I’ve noticed a discrepancy I hope someone can clear up as I have no idea where else to turn. In his skills section, it says his A2 is an ascended skill and places 5% poison debuffs, but against the CB he only does 2.5% (i.e., un-ascended). Am I missing something here? Thanks for any feedback.

  32. Oengus Og aka Charles Benoit

    First look at site. Well thought out, too easy to find what I need. 😁 I wish more sites were like this.

  33. Kamiyo

    @connie ijames
    You don`t. After learning Keen Strike, Heart of Glory would become learnable. Same thing with LoS and CoM talents (Arcane Celerity unlocks LoS, not CoM; but LoS unlocks CoM)

  34. braven8

    Aothar is a great addition with full atk/acc gear if you need a second DPS in UNM Unkillable strategy (using Roshcard and Skullcrusher)

  35. connie ijames

    Please note, you have to open Blade Disciple on Aothar, not Deadly Precision to go to the next tier shown.
    Thank you for the great website, I am happy to have discovered it.

  36. akiskaloz

    Nope, but you can only have 10 debuffs on CB at once. This include poison as well as attack down, def down etc.

  37. MArt

    Is there a limit of Poison debuffs on a target? I have Kael and Occult Brawlerin already in my team

  38. Omadazero

    The lifesteal set doesn’t proc off of DoTs, but it does proc off of giant slayer/warmaster. It’s there to keep Aothar healthy against hard hitting bosses when you don’t have top-tier healers like Bad El.

  39. Hungalas

    If we’re putting HP%/Def% on him as main stats, doesn’t that kind of make the lifesteal set somewhat redundant as well? They don’t proc off of DoTs right?

  40. sauce

    is he a replacement for Kael for CB? considering Kael inflicts 2.5 poisons too, using debuff slots on CB for a lower poison debuff, while aothar adds only 5%?

  41. Ayumilove Post author

    @Devante: Yes. I do agree with your comment. It would be recommended to have Aothar to equip HP%/Defense% main stat for Chestplate and Gauntlets while HP/Defense for his Ring and Amulet as his base defense is quite low. I have updated Aothar’s equipment guide section to reflect this since he is mostly used to inflict Poison debuff on Bosses. To achieve this, he will need to be carried by his team members to survive the first 2 waves in Dungeons 15~20.

  42. Devante

    do you think it would be beneficial to change to defense instead of support cuz he dies so fast now.?

  43. Bréon

    Hi ! Arcane celerity/kill streak/giant slayer not on ligth in picture, Sorry i have bad english 😁🇫🇷

  44. Ayumilove Post author

    @Geoff: Thanks for spotting the error! I have refined Aothar mastery guide (from Warmaster to Giant Slayer) since he does a lot more hits overall when fully skilled with skill tomes.

  45. Geoff

    You have written Giant Slayer but have Warmaster picked in picture. Thanks for the great posts, love your site man!
