    I have Bysrophus at top of level 5, but I can not upgrade to level 6. The system say the he is at the top. Is that correct?

  2. Osiris8193

    Bystophus A3 stats have changed from what’s listed

  3. Jon

    Partnered with the new demon spawn champion Countess Lix I’m wondering if his rankings will shoot up with his A2. Countess has that A3 aoe block cooldowns which he can follow up on

  4. SgtSparhawk

    This champ is ok.. can almost solo first half of nightmare dungeons fully booked..

    Hi. Could u add pictures to your equipment guide ? I would like to see a picture of the artifacts on the spicific hero
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    @LinePK: I have updated Bystophus’s Spider rating from 1 star to 3 star.

  7. LinePK

    His Spider’s Den rate is better than 1 star, due to last patch that changed skill3 for aoe.

  8. sam

    bystohus was my first legendary

  9. LinePK

    Bystophus will gain %True Fear on A1 if enemy has Block Cooldown Skills debuff on next patch, this will be very useful in the arena.
    Could Retaliation set will work on him? I think it will be a good idea.

    Thanks for you advice. Although getting that one only long awaited legendary to 6* is tempting 🙂
    I have 4/5 star gear so that definitely is my weak spot. Checked dragon and i can do it 17 Auto and i’m blocked at 18 due to opposing affinity of my best champions (Kael/Apothecary)

    @sajfer: If I were to play your account, I would aim to tackle those dungeons. Beat Dungeon 20 to farm high level gears (5~6 Star with good substats). High level gears allow you to do Nightmare Clan Boss and Ultra Nightmare Clan Boss. With better gear, you can start designing Speed Farming for Dungeons (below 2 minutes). Once you have good gear, you can tackle higher level Arena (Gold~Platinum) since most of the champions there have very high Speed and Resist Stats or more tanky teams (high defense and HP).

    I’m pretty far in the game but i’m stuck in the arena silver medals quest and looking for anything that could move me further. I have relickeeper, kael, coldheart, doompriest, warmaiden, apothecary and steelskull 6*, ascended, fully booked and working on their masteries. Yet still have many problems to farm silver medals, 130 od 400 needed to do next step. I do Brutal CB daily, most of the dungeons 13-15lvl, spider 13, farming brutal 12-3 easy and stopped at 6 boss Nightmare.
    I have coffin smasher, armiger, soulbond bowyer, painkeeper, bystophus and sinesha at 5* ready to go to the 6*. I wanted to upgrade coffin smasher or armiger to progress in CB and dungeons (spider) but Bystophus is my first legendary and looking at stats he can be my arena supernuker. Kael can’t deal enough damage especially he’s geared to be allround campaign dungeon CB character and relickeeper is just not strong enough.
    I don’t know if i should 6* Bystophus or farm dragon for better equipment for my base team.
    The thing is i need to choose carefully as i’m 100% F2P and getting anyone to 6* takes a lot of time 🙂

    @sajfer: If you are just starting out, I highly recommend not 6 starring Bystophus because he is mainly used against non-bosses enemy. Instead, 6 star champion who is able to farm fodder in Campaign, being able to handle Dungeons Stage 1~14 and tackle Easy~Hard Clan Boss to earn daily rewards. Having a 6 star champion such as Kael helps create more 6 star champion much faster as he has AoE skills to clear mobs of enemies quickly, and having good debuff for bosses will help you build your core team much faster. If you are in late game, then move on to 6 starring Bystophus for Faction Wars and Arena.

  14. sajfer

    It is my first legendary and i want to know if he’s worth 6 staring. He’s not rated good but – correct me if i’m wrong – i think he has the highest attack stat in all game? Almost 1800 when other attack champions have between 1500-1600 attack stat. My best attacker Kael has 1200 base, that’s huuge difference. So i’m wondering if that only thing could make him a decent champion even though his skills are not so great?

    @Cookie: I have added MurderInc Raid video into the guide above. Thanks!

    I really enjoy reading the back stories behind each character, but I see some are not posted/developed. However, the ones which are posted are awesome and I really like reading about the character origin and purpose.

  17. Guy

    Hi i Was Wondering why you went for Opportunist as it only works for Stun sleep fear and Freeze and Bystophus has none of theses that i know of

  18. Bahrgarth

    Best-looking champion of the best-looking faction.

    41 Stars Should be B Ranked

    Hello Ayumilove.

    First thank you for this site, it has/is helping me a ton.

    I would like to know if Bystophus is a good replacement for Warmaiden, specially for Arena, Spiders, etc.

    I intend to ascend him to 3 stars so that I can unlock the “decrease defense” debuff in his A3.

    By the way he is my 1st only legendary (I have three accounts).

    I am also a F2P player, and would like to know if it is worth to get his full masteries (I unlocked the Gem Mine and leveled it up to level 3.)

    I was saving these gems to get full masteries, of lets say, a coldheart, or some other really good champion if I get them someday, or get the masteries for my Souldbond Bowyer, I don’t know which, lol.

  21. Potato Skinz

    Bystophus has been a HUGE part of my progression and has helped me 4 man almost every single dungeon up to 18+.
    I am using him currently at lvl 3 for his leader skill to increase my teams accuracy (because i am relatively new and dont have banners yet). It allows me to prioritize defensive stats over accuracy until i get better runes.
