Candraphon Masteries Guide

Arena, Doom Tower, Faction Wars

Pre-requisite: Candraphon to be equipped with Stalwart Set if you are using him in a Slow Arena Team OR equip Savage Set and Cruel Set to ignore defense if you are using him in a Speed Arena Team. Savage Set and Helmsmasher (Tier 6 Offense Mastery) is recommended for Candraphon to be able to deal high damage against heavy defensive champions in his AoE Nuke attack and single-target attack. Stalwart Set is an excellent option to mitigate heavy AoE damage if your Arena team is unable to go first in battle. The mastery setup for Candraphon below is tuned for 1 hit KO (knockout) the enemy before they could have a chance to retaliate. Best paired with a Decrease Defense champion if you do not have decent equipment that provides the required stats for him to deal high damage. Use this mastery setup after you have a dedicated team of champions for Clan Boss and Dungeons. Highly recommend to use this mastery setup for Candraphon as his skills are revolve around Arena (PvP).

Campaign, Clan Boss, Dungeons

Pre-requisite: Candraphon to be equipped with Lifesteal Set to sustain himself through dealing heavy damage or equipped with Stalwart Set to reduce the incoming AoE damage from enemies. Stalwart Set is only recommended if you have a Support Champion who can heal you consistently or places a large amount of Shield to mitigate the damage from reducing Candraphon’s HP. Although he does not bring any debuff to the table, he can be your damage nuker to clear the enemy waves and whittle the enemy boss HP quickly. Only use this mastery setup if you do not have a strong champion to deal high damage against bosses especially Clan Boss.

Candraphon Storyline

Hushed rumours speak of a beast on the prowl, a terrible monster born of the Shadow. It slithers in dark corners, where Lumaya’s light does not reach, never to be seen until it is too late. And when it unleashes its bloodthirst, there is no escape. Razorsharp claws rend steel and flesh alike, and the beast strikes with such blinding speed that its unfortunate victims never have a chance to realize from whence their death arrived. Candraphon – though few know the name – is that abomination, and much of what is whispered about him is neither myth nor exaggeration, but a nightmarish truth. He is an ancient Demonspawn, whose origins lie far beyond the realm of Teleria. Whatever drives him is hard to comprehend for a mortal mind, but there is malicious intelligence behind the seemingly barbaric acts of butchery. The truth is simple but no less disturbing for it. Candraphon is a predator. A stalker that treats the mortal realms as his hunting grounds, and the lesser creatures that dwell therein as quarry to slay whenever he wishes. To attract the gaze of this demon’s burning eyes is to invite a swift and brutal demise, for Candraphon revels in victory over worthy prey above all else.

Candraphon Champion Lore

Most Demonic servants of Siroth take on the trappings of mortal existence. Many were once mortals who pledged themselves to the Shadow God, and it seems to amuse some Firstborn Demons to mimic the ways of the so-called civilized peoples of Teleria, especially when it comes to the courts of highborn nobles. But there are some among Demon-kind who do not attempt to gild themselves with the ways of those they seek to conquer. They use no veneer of humanity and make no concessions to civility or reason. They embrace what they are, malicious and wicked beings with cold hungers and fiery tempers. Few are as primal as the Demon known as Candraphon, who only uses a mortal form for the purpose of entering Teleria.

A Firstborn, Candraphon has served Siroth since before the creation of mortals. With his great age and the power and stature it affords him amongst his Demonic kin, Candraphon does not act like most other Firstborn who dedicate so much of their existence to attempting to control their fellow Demonspawn. Not for him the politicking and backstabbing of Siroth’s grand court in Anathraad, nor the much-coveted generalship of the Demonspawn armies that seek to conquer and subvert Teleria. Candraphon does not manipulate his kind for his benefit, clash against them over matters of primacy, seek alliances with them, nor even seem to care for the favor of Siroth. He has but one passion, one need which he can never fully satiate – the hunting of mortals.

To that end, Candraphon spends most of his time in the mortal plane, rather than in Anathraad where he would disdain the company of his power-hungry Demonspawn brethren. All he wishes to do is find worthy prey, track it, kill it, and claim trophies from its corpse. In this, Candraphon is without equal among his kind, and perhaps among any being, mortal or immortal, across Teleria. With his senses he can detect the slightest movement of his prey from great distances and can follow their scent for many leagues. His reflexes are razor-sharp, his strength a match for the biggest and most brutal fellow-Demonspawn. The only tools he makes use of are the scythe gauntlets known as the Eviscerators, great lengths of Anathraad-warped bone that cleave through anything they touch, be it steel, timber, flesh, or stone.

Candraphon has become a dark legend across Teleria, and with good reason. The Demonspawn is a phantom in the dark, a whisper on the wind, an unseen presence haunting the treetops or the moorlands. No lock will keep him barred, no horse will outrun him, and a citadel-worth of guards and soldiers will not keep him at bay. He seems to delight in the tracking as much as the kill, sometimes hounding his prey for weeks or months at a time – even if he could have killed them earlier -— until terror and exhaustion renders them unable to go on.

Candraphon’s choice of victims has led some to speculate that he often seeks out opponents worthy of his efforts. He has clashed strength and wits with a vast array of skilled and mighty foes throughout the ages, from huntsmen in Yakai, to Elven mages of Aravia, and questing knights of Kaerok. Few have given him pause, let alone beaten him. But Candraphon does not limit himself only to great warriors or sorcerers, for if he did his legend would surely not have spread as it has. The humble farmer who hears a commotion among his livestock as darkness falls is as much in danger as the noble warrior who stops on the road to rest and water his horses, catching the strange clicking from Candraphon’s beak-like mouth on the wind.

The latest stories involving the Demonspawn claim that Candraphon has taken to hunting through the dreaded Durham Forest, delighting in the variety and viciousness of the prey there. Others say that the infamous figure Ruel the Huntsmaster, one of the deadliest Dark Elves ever to have lived, has heard of Candraphon, and seeks him out to test his skills. If such stories are true, Candraphon may have found something close to his match – certainly their clash will become legend. One thing is for sure: only one will leave Durham Forest alive.

  1. Whack Bauer

    @Tripp “Offense” is all-inclusive, meaning it covers savage, cruel, bloodthirst, lethal, instinct and parry. Settle down.

  2. MotherOfDragons

    What about Immunity gear for Candy?

  3. Tripp

    I feel like this needs to be updated. I guess stalwart set makes sense. Obviously savage and cruel. But triple offense? Also, there’s been a ton more sets that have come out since this post that not only are people using but I think they out use and out class stalwart and offense. I’ve seen a lot of Candys using Stoneskin nowadays, and you now have Lethal and Instinct sets from the forge. But the most popular I think is Swift Perry. And let’s not forget we now have new accessories that give up to 15% counterattack which is God-tier on Candy.

    So I feel like this current listing is quite outdated.

  4. Wes

    @Wes, replying to my own comment here in case someone else was misunderstanding like me. I realized that when it says “Places a [Perfect Veil] buff on this Champion for 1 turn each time an enemy’s Turn Meter is filled,” it’s not talking about the turn meter being at 100% but about abilities that fill(boost) the turn meter.

  5. Wes

    I’ve noticed that Candraphon’s passive seems buggy. I had him going after Arbiter, Basher, and Madame Serris, but if my opponent goes between Basher and Madame Serris (where the opposing team has their active skills on cooldown) then his passive doesn’t put him under Perfect Veil and he’s the first one to get hit. However, if the other team goes first before my Arbiter, then his passive does kick in and puts himself under Perfect Veil. There’s nothing in the passive’s description that states that the opponent’s team has to have their cooldowns reset before he places his Perfect Veil. Can anyone else confirm this?


    I have mine in relentless gear and offense set at the moment. He’s so OP, especially when he gets back to back turns. Sitting at 208 c dam and 4292 attack at the moment. He also is basically always under veil because the other team applies buffs almost always to themselves before attacking, so he’s never one shot. only 29k hp and 1811 defense. Just pulled a SECOND one today as well. Trying to decide if it’s worth having 2…

  7. bjarne Christiansen

    whouuu got candraphon with my last ancient shard, this mornig.

    looking forward to use him in the arena. 🙂

  8. Bjarne Christiansen

    Used my last ancient shard yesterday, recieving this badass.

    But im out of books at the moment !!!

    Will have to graind for a couple of weeks 🙂

  9. Rivy Febrii

    Candraphon’s body is smoll ngl XD
    Yes… He’s kinda cute 😳😳

  10. Teacup

    I just 95% upgraded one of my Candraphon, he hits like a truck in Arena, almost 1 shot Lydia, Arbiter, Big’un, Lanakis team. after fully upgrading his lvl 11 Amulet, I think he should be able to 1 shot all, need silver, anyone got some spare?
    Savage set + Cruel set for 1st Candraphon
    Divine Atk sets for 2nd, will see the difference after I fully upgrading the second one.

  11. Aruyo

    After Candraphon’s had been buffed he has become a tier S arena champion and propably tier S legendary overall. He’s nearly permanent under [Perfect Veil] which can’t be removed (!) and hit’s like a train. Too much in my option. When combined with a champion providing block debuff buff, he can’t be targeted by single hits or debuffed. He even gets -55% Dmg from AOE attacks (-40% – 15%). Correctly equipped tier S certainly.

  12. Hyne

    I’ve only been playing for three weeks but I pulled Candraphon as my first legendary and I’ve been in Gold 4 arena ever since. Extremely helpful in starting my great hall and I’ve won two classic arena tournaments getting me amazing extra turn gear.

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    @Teacup: Candraphon is just buffed right for Arena, previously he was not viable in Arena as he does not have a way to put Veil passively on himself.

  14. Teacup

    This guy is WAY too powerful in Arena.

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @Christian: If the enemy uses a skill that fills up their Turn Meter, then Candraphon passive skill will activate and the skill cooldown will start. However, if the enemy perform another Turn Meter increases while Candraphon’s passive skill is under cooldown, it will not be activated until the passive skill cooldown has been reset.

  16. Christian

    Hi, it seem i didn’t understand the From the Shadows active skill. I never saw that this was triggered!?

  17. Bacon knight

    I have currently at rank 5 now but since the rebalance he is definitely a strong candidate to 6 star as always there’s like 6 or more champs in line to rank up…….. The joys of this game lol

  18. Jason Smith

    How is he not ranked better since the rebalancing? He’s great in arena and I have been using him in dragon dungeon 20 and a reasonable campaign farmer. I have been able to get him to 20 seconds on 12-6 brutal

  19. keyserSoze

    He is now a very viable threat in the arena. With all the speed boosters, he starts the match under veil, and he hits hard. Also, with the update and stalwart he is blocks 70 of the damage when under veil. He is almost always under a veil.

  20. Jaeger

    He’s still a C ranks? He much better now

  21. Peppe

    What do you think now about skill books for him? It’s worth it?

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    @BadMrFrosty: Candraphon only deals extra hit on enemies if the enemy has at least 1 buff on themselves. However, Candraphon does not apply Extra Hit against the Minotaur boss when he has the Rage buff on himself.

  23. BadMrFrosty

    Is Punish Hubris broken? I’m not seeing the extra hit

  24. raayna

    Please update his tier and ranking

  25. Hi

    Faction war rating please

  26. Bossas

    Thanks very much, for the help. Great job, your tutorial is great!!!

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @Bossas: It is not recommended spending any Legendary Skill tomes on Candraphon as he is not useful in almost all areas with the skills he has right now. Also, if you are just beginning in-game, I highly recommend you to level up your started champion (e.g. Kael) as he is a much better champion in farming fodders in Campaign Brutal. With starter champion, you can progress in-game much faster compared to leveling Candraphon. Also, Candraphon requires specific pairing with Champion in order for him to deal high damage (e.g. Duchess Lilitu to apply Veil), so he can deal high damage on the first round.

  28. Bossas

    Is he worth to spend legendary books on him, or generally lv him up??? Is my first legendary! Or keep the books for better one?

  29. Marek

    Hello! I would like to ask why is he so low and positioned as bad. With all the killing potential in the arena and clan boss… I would kindly suggest to put him among good legends. Ty for your work with the site and truly hope my suggestion will help. 🙂
