Basileus Roanas Champion Lore

There is a very archaic title among the High Elves of Aravia, that of Basileus. This honorific dates back centuries, and it may have first been bestowed by the Lightbringers themselves. The lore surrounding it is sweeping and grandiose, of an epic scope befitting its origin in the legendary youth of the world. The Basileus is an avatar of the whole kingdom, Aravia made flesh, the health and wealth of the nation personified in the body and the deeds of a single individual. Their form was strong, beautiful, and perfect, free of any blemish. Their weapons were like an extension of their body, and thus an extension of Aravia itself. Their life was wholly in service of the state, ready to be laid down for the good of the realm at any time. No Basileus has lived up to this ideal better than Roanas.

It was the Gray Age, the ancient period of maturation and rebirth that followed the expulsion of the gods and the Firstborn from Teleria. Though held at bay by great magics, Siroth still plotted to infiltrate and invade the world he had been denied, and finally did so many years after his banishment. The Arbiter foresaw this invasion, and she put forth a great call to the mortal races. Roanas, the soul of Aravia, was swift to answer this call, and marshaled a truly glorious host of gold and white, countless thousands of archers in gleaming, perfect ranks, foot soldiers with shining halberds arrayed, and cavalry upon exquisite Elven-reared steeds. The Arbiter’s forces mustered in a great valley near her immense Tower in the Cloudspire Mountains. Amid the haggard, forced-marched Humans of Yakai and proud Dragonkin, amid the Orcs and Ogryn in their mismatched and hastily-gathered gear, the majestic Elves in white and gold stood at the forefront, or so the Elven tales go. So striking was Roanas and his host that it, and he, became known as the Great White Eagle – a bird of prey whose wings of cavalry and claws and beak of steadfast warriors would fight fiercely and proudly.

The Demonspawn arose from the depths and filled up the valley like a deluge. They were reckless and impatient for bloodshed, heedless of what they might encounter. As this nightmare swarm boiled up at them, the Great White Eagle held firm at the vanguard, and all the kindred folk of Teleria stood with him. He nocked his golden greatbow and fired a gleaming shot into the Demonspawn horde, and at this signal his archers followed suit. As the horde engulfed the host of Light, Roanas’ halberdiers and cavalry defended their archers, as the Humans and others fought on the flanks in looser skirmishes.

For hour after hour, the Elves cut down enraged Demonspawn, who threw wave after endless wave of bodies into their nonstop, grinding assault. All who fought in the Arbiter’s coalition that day won glory for themselves, but none greater than Roanas. Like a man possessed he fought as if without pain or exhaustion, firing arrow after arrow and shouting oaths invoking the Arbiter’s judgment with each shot. Many were those who, wounded or wavering in faith, saw and heard the Basileus and were moved to fight once more. He himself was struck a dozen times or more, and even with blood leaking from his armor he fought on and on. When their arrows were depleted, he and the archers descended into melee with knives, boots, and their very fists.

As the Demonspawn finally began to break, and withdraw sullenly, Roanas was still dealing death with his blade and warding off blows with his great golden bow. When the last Demonspawn had fled, he leaned upon it so that he might die without falling to the ground. The survivors of his Great White Eagle, and all those who defended the Arbiter and her dream of a peaceful and blessed Teleria, came forth. They picked their way across the devastated battlefield littered with the fallen, to be with him as he breathed his last, to mourn for the great hero of the battle. But before death could take him, the Arbiter herself descended among them and produced a Shard of purest golden hue, a fittingly glorious home for Roanas’ everlasting essence. The mortal form of Basileus Roanas died cradled in the Arbiter’s embrace, but his soul lived on within her Shard, preserved for all eternity to serve her in battles to come.

This is the great Aravian national mythos, their legendary history of a long-distant past, embellished and mythologized over generations. It may be taken with a grain of salt. But High Elves still pray and wish for the return of Basileus Roanas to this day.

Basileus Roanas Storyline

It is no secret that true legends often rise as a beacon of hope when the hour is darkest. And so it was now. When the Orcs invaded the Kingdom of Aravia, scattered its army, and burned many of its fortresses, it was the ruler of the High Elves, Basileus Roanas who rose up to rally his people against the savages that sought to destroy everything they held dear. A marksman without peer during his life, he led the Elven armies in a daring counteroffensive that broke the back of the horde and drove the invaders back to the very borders of the Kingdom. Roanas was credited with personally slaying a score of Orcish warlords and chieftains in the course of that campaign, for his arrows never missed their mark. Be it a black heart, a chink in the armour, or an exposed throat of a towering Ogryn. Roanas’ army was poised to meet the newly-gathered Orc forces under Grohak the Bloodied in a battle that would have become the stuff of legends for generations to come, yet fate had different plans. The great White Eagle – the Arbiter’s own messenger – arrived on the eve of that fateful clash, bearing dread news from the east. Siroth’s demons, the missive said, were invading Teleria and their numbers were legion. The Arbiter implored the mortal armies to stay their hand and reach a temporary truce. Though it pained him to do so, the Basileus of the High Elves knew the worth of the Arbiter’s words and ordered his forces to withdraw from battle. Soon after, the Arbiter arrived in person. She had already spoken to the Orc warlord and bound him to her will. But, unlike Grohak, Roanas did not require threats or force to make his decision. He bowed his head in acceptance and reached out to take the Shard that would bind his soul forevermore. From thereon he fought for Lumaya’s Light through the ages, first joining his rival – Grohak – in thwarting the Demon invasion that threatened Teleria, then answering the summons from the Arbiter and those appointed by her to face a myriad of foes and dangers. As ever, the Basileus’ arrows strike swift and true, and woe betide those who stand against him.

  1. sin

    I’m thinking of building him along with a hex champion, since hex has gotten buffed, to keep the head of mischief in check and deal some splash damage. a 100% block buff on a1 is pretty good. haven’t decided on which hex champion to use yet

  2. jonathon mccue

    needs update after patch!

  3. Jun W

    I believe he should be an A tier now afer the update.

  4. courageouslio

    just pulled her, perfect timing cause im working on moving up dungeon stages to 20, especially spider, this will help with the in between stages

  5. Greg Brown

    Basileus is Great in so many areas. Arena, Doom tower, Especially on boss Dark Fae. Stun the whole mirror team and kill them. 100% stun Aoe on a 3 turn cooldown. Then since buff his A2 hits hard and can kill champions under shield and block damage.

  6. FuryInside

    With new update, A2 multiplier is about more than 3.

  7. Jpoint9

    When will we get updated info from the new patch notes that roll out 9-30-2021? Should the damage multiplier be higher?

    Thank you ayumi, I need a force champ and I happen to have him, I need more turn meter control for spider specifically armiger cant handle the negative affinity… Soooooo, im working on lvleing him 60 which would complete my mission for a force 60, Im just not too sure like he doesnt appear to have big multiplicator so like if I build him reflex and focus the AI on never using A2 would he still be relevant as a support champ without much damage ? Im scarce on damage gear but I still need turn meter control/stunt, to go further than like dungeon 15.. My general comp would be duchess,big Un, uugo, roanas and cold heart. So reflex gear and tanky/accuracy speed how does that sound to you ?

  10. Ayumilove Post author

    @Angelo D Dirienzo: Yeah, you need Accuracy stats to apply debuff and negative instant effects such as Decrease Turn Meter.

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @Cory Price: I have added videos on Basileus Roanas to this page 🙂

  12. Cory Price

    How are there no videos on him?

  13. Angelo D Dirienzo

    Im using him in arena do i need acc for his turn meter ?

  14. TGH

    Actually this guy is top tier arena controller

  15. Antemurale

    He’s the wrong affinity for Spiders 20

  16. PaulieGF

    How come he is so low in spider with his aoe stun/TM reduce?

  17. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Recommendation is Offense Set, but honestly I’d never recommend Offense over Critical Damage if you can get your Crit Rate up in some way. Offense scales off of base ATK only; Crit Dmg is simply a much bigger percentage of ATK (total, I think–but even if not!), and starts at a higher percentage than any ATK % bonus you’re ever likely to get.

    MAYBE Cruel. Cruel is objectively better than Offense. So take it as advice for earlier players.

  18. Sash

    Why go down Defense tree?
    He needs accuracy to land stun/TM decrease…

  19. Ayumilove Post author

    @Nigel: You can optimized Basileus Roanas for more consistent high damage by having his Critical Rate at 100% with at 100% Critical Damage and most importantly have at least 180 Speed. Speed is king in all areas. By having a higher speed, you can reduce all of your skill cooldowns much faster than your enemies. More speed means you can activate more skills to deal more damage within a short period of time too, at the same time increasing you survivability.

  20. Nigel

    Just a follow up on this guy. He was my first legendary and as a ftp player I went with him, ok so. Initially, I was a bit underwhelmed. But, in my runs around the game he was always there, cc’ing and controlling the waves. Finishing off targets also no problem.

    His kit as prev mentioned, is actually pretty nice. He can do a bit of everything. He’s not your go-to nuker but as a 2nd attacker he’s brilliant. He is your Nuke assist guy.

    Update, my BR is now 60, and looking at 4k off, 2k defence, 30k hp, 130 spd, acc is a bit low at 70, not yet got the banner.. But HECK.. Hes lvl in damage most runs with lvl 60 kael, hes like BANG.. Mob finito. Powered by Doompriest in my coreteam he zips along quite happily and to be honest hes like my fav champ now.

    If you get him be patient, see what he does and he will compliment your team no probs.

    I have him in 2xoff 1x spd, only 50 %crit, but 170cd. He hits hard enough, not yet gotbthe red scroll masteries yet, so he will power on more.

    Long post I know, but I love the game and this champ is great, Those cc, stuns and s /steals are so nice.
    Thanks, Nige

  21. PJ Finkbeiner

    Honestly love this guys kit he’s my only half decent lego, build him lifesteal with high accuracy and speed and he turns into a pretty good cc’er with his aoe stun and turn meter control (tm is cut by 50% if stun doesn’t land and it can be huge in bosses that require slowing down.) plus being able to steal literally any buff then block the use of them after he steals them sometimes really can change the outcome of the battle. I put him in counterattack team with skullcrusher for arena and he can steal up so many buffs in one turn if you manage to stun them get speed boost and get him to counterattack. Lifesteal gear because he tends to steal continuous heal buffs or increase defense making his sustain pretty nice sometimes. And he’s stealing these buffs pretty reliably I only have like 100 accuracy on mine and he rarely meets resistance issues.

  22. Juergen

    I wouldnt go as far and say he is useless – you cant currently find any YTer cover him in a video. he has a great skillkit, his damage is missing so far imho

    HellHades just recently posted a review of all legos in the game – he stated he got reports from other players that BR can actually hit very hard – however doesnt that apply to nearly any champ in the game with the right equip?

  23. Paul

    What a useless lego

  24. Juergen

    I only use him in Magic Keep where he is great and doing 21 sec runs with him in the team – he places block buffs which is great – cant really see any potential him being a nuker

  25. RaidWarrior

    Faction Crypt Rating Please?

  26. Bacon Knight!

    I have 2 of him just wondering if he’s possible good but so many champs to 6 star including Lego’s just trying to decide on a nuker.

  27. tagish

    i am like level 59, i have no leg excepted him and wurlim and i want a nuker, now i m still using elhain

  28. Hungryman

    Basileus roanas is actually ok for the spirit keep, i run him with alure stag knight duchess lilitu and cold heart because he can steal crimson helms block damage buff otherwise alure would decrease her turn meter forever .it works for me and I can do level 15 runs in about 2 mins 20
    He can steal buffs in most situations that swing the battle in your favour
