Baron Review

Baron is a Legendary Attack Void affinity champion from the Banner Lords in Raid Shadow Legends. With his shiniest armor in all of Raid, Baron was a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. It was rumored that he used a secret family polish passed down through generations, a secret that only added to his regal presence.

Before September 2022, Baron was a unique niche champion, with a secret Pure damage ability that had a low probability of unlocking. Only the most elite players used him for this skill, as it was impractical for most players. However, everything changed in September when Baron received a “buff” that transformed him into a formidable force on the battlefield.

With this “buff,” Baron lost his Pure damage ability but gained a hard-hitting AOE attack in its place. This new ability made him one of the best champions in Raid for the arena and a great counter to the likes of Bolster shield set, Krisk the Ageless, and Nekhret the Great as it ignored shields. What’s more, this new skill didn’t require any books, making him an even more valuable addition to any player’s arsenal.

But Baron’s strength didn’t stop there. He also possessed a powerful single-target Decrease DEF debuff that didn’t require accuracy, making him a valuable asset in places like the Spider’s Den. And of course, Baron’s most famous ability was his A1 attack that dealt insane damage to all other enemies if he killed someone, a strategy that was commonly used in the treacherous Doom Tower waves.

Thanks to his newfound fame and power, Baron was no longer a niche champion, but a legend in his own right. He continued to fight with deadly precision, his trusty armor shining in the sunlight as he wielded his arsenal of powerful attacks and debuffs. And while his secret family polish may have been a well-guarded secret, there was no doubt that Baron’s legacy would continue to shine brightly in the world of Raid Shadow Legends.

  1. general blue

    Can somebody explain how the buffs multiplier on his a3 works? like is his a2 or a3 hitting harder if he has 3 buffs on him?

  2. sin

    need to updade. after buff he has become the best nucker in the game

  3. James Todd Conner

    way better on spider then layed out. got him in full attack gear with a rezzer hes doing 40k aoe plus the decrtease defense helped me farm spider 21 easy. used him to winh spider 25 but not full farm to inconsitent. better then alot of dps you have ranked higher.

  4. Gary

    Baron’s A3 needs updating as it has radically changed on how it is used.

    The description has changed a little – “Attacks all Enemies. Will ignore Shield buffs and Block Damage buffs, as well as 50% of targets Def” – no pure damage.

    But, the big difference is now that it is on a 4 turn cooldown.

  5. Monkey D Luffy

    I think Baron deserve a promotion after the rebalance. I have most of the top nukers like Trunda, Candy, Genbo, Dragonbane, Ragash etc but nobody come close to Baron since he doesn’t need a debuffer to land debuff against Duchess and Siphi who got 600+ resist. Goes great with Arbiter, Kymar and Lydia. Arbiter provide the ATK buff, Lydia with strengthen and sometime even land her weaken and Kymar let him nuke twice. He is also great in DT hard as clean up hitter.

  6. De Cudar

    My Baron is long time ago my favorite character. Before balance he was a fun hero. With tricky hidden skill, a little bit greater dmg against Iron Tower and DT wave for examample, but now his skill can be use at first round, that awesome. He is worth every book.

  7. Pizza Pan

    This guy just got buffed and he is now a top tier nuker!

  8. Shizukuishi

    – Base stats changed: Base SPD increased from 90 to 100.

    [Skill 4 – Skypiercer]

    – Skill changed: No longer a skill that requires unlocking by using Baron’s Trample, Split Asunder or Righteous Charge skills.

    – Effect changed: Will now ignore 50% of the target’s DEF as well.

    – Cooldown added: 4 turns.

    [Skill 1 – Trample]

    – Effect changed: No longer has a 10% chance to unlock the Skypiercer skill for 1 turn.

    [Skill 2 – Split Asunder]

    – Effect changed: No longer has a 20% chance to unlock the Skypiercer skill for 1 turn.

    [Skill 3 – Righteous Charge]

    – Effect changed: No longer has a 40% chance to unlock the Skypiercer skill for 1 turn.

    – Cooldown changed: Cooldown decreased from 6 to 5 turns.

    Hah, just noticed I promised to report back.

    The Baron blender is probably the best blender out there. I run Arbiter, Cardiel, Skullcrown and Baron. Cardiel is hardly necessary to the setup.

    While blenders with Sinesha rely on having the enemy HP below 50% before the cleanup hit, Baron can take a target down from max HP and still generate enough overkill damage to wipe the whole team.

  10. Strawberry369

    this guys worth has to have increased since the new dungeon stages were added especially in spider. he has potential to do more than 10% of enemy max hp kind of damage per sky piercer hit.

  11. OrcLadyConnoisseur

    It’s a damn shame his AI doesn’t function logically, or he’d be one of the best campaign farmers in the game (easily does 7-second runs on manual as is)

  12. Sancheezo

    I use him more than year. He is the King of the Doom Tower, especially in Hard mode. Thanks God for him.

  13. Mich

    So I’ve had Baron for awhile, but I just realized he wants to be in a blender comp batting cleanup behind Skullcrown. I’ll report back when I have it up and running.

  14. Hunter

    I hope they buff this guy. He is my only pulled void legendary besides a dupe wurlim frosting. :(.

    Skypiercer hits like a dump truck. But there is a overwhelming chance he will die before he uses it

  15. Stonecentipede

    He farms 12-3 Brutal in 7 seconds if I use his A1 in manual.

  16. Stonecentipede

    I’ve been using the information on this site as a guide for over 6 months now. I really appreciate you making it and your attempt to keep all the info up to date.

    Anyways, I wonder why my Baron doesn’t hit like Murder Inc’s does? lol. I can’t wait until I have artifacts / accessories like he has. I’ve had Baron for a while now and can just recently equip him the correct way. He’s one of the champs that you need to get his Crit Rate up to 100% then focus on Crit Damage and Atk%

    @byandroid: I could consider adding names inside the page content itself. However for indexing, I’ll need to think about it on how to support it, as there are different languages in the game too.

  18. byandroid

    hello admin, I will make a suggestion to you, it would be great if you put the indexes on the site visually because we cannot find Turkish and English names different

  19. Bathu

    When his a2 said “This debuff is guaranteed” I thought it was just weird wording to just say it can’t be resisted. I just found out that it applies with fire knight shield still up and it applies even if the enemy has block debuffs buff. You literally cannot block it

  20. Guy

    so what is “pure damage?” does Crit rate work on that?

  21. Jazz

    In the 2nd video, the youtuber says that he thinks Skypiercer doesn’t deal Pure Damage, and it only ignores shields and block damage. This is wrong.
    I just tried him against a random monster in Campaign and a message popped up from the mob: “Ignore defense”, alongside two other messages: “Ignore Shield” and “Ignore Block Damage”.
    Even though he doesn’t use his A1 by default, which would make him invaluable for Campaigns, I definitely believe he should be rank S, not just A.
    I’m not sure how Ayumilove rates champions, but he has a really good aura (+33% attack), he provides a DEF down and he hits really hard, also providing a sort of AoE.
    He’s kinda slow, but his other stats are quite good.

  22. Jazz

    For the aura, maybe, for the 60% def down and obviously, the extra skill, which has to be really good against CB, for its “pure damage”, meaning he will completely ignore CB’s defense.
    I just pulled one, so I have no experience, but it sounds really nice 🙂
    “Pure damage”, “puuuure daaamage”, that’s a mouthful :’D

  23. Arthur

    Why is Baron good for Clan Boss?

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @DesignAnn: Thanks! I have corrected Baron’s A1 skill from Repent to Trample.

  25. DesignAnn

    The Baron’s Skill: Repent [ATK], should instead be Trample [ATK]. It is named incorrectly.
