Cillian the Lucky Review

Cillian the Lucky, a legendary Attack Magic affinity champion hailing from the Banner Lords in the popular game Raid Shadow Legends, has an interesting story to tell. While the name itself conjures up images of a fortuitous hero, Cillian’s journey has not always been smooth sailing. He suffered a setback when he lost his trusty jousting horse, but he did not let this defeat define him. Instead, he rose above his misfortune and became one of the most sought-after champions in the game.

Cillian made his debut on the St. Patrick’s Day Fusion event in 2020, and his acquisition was a relatively straightforward process, thanks to the champions already available in the game. Players were required to fuse Necrohunter, Corpse Collector, Suwai Firstborn, and Jinglehunter to unlock this coveted champion. While these champions were not hard to come by, most players had them locked away in their vault, making Cillian a valuable addition to their roster.

Despite his moniker, Cillian is an all-single-target champion, which limits his effectiveness to some extent. However, he more than makes up for this shortcoming with his exceptional control abilities that can wreak havoc on enemy champions. His A2 ability, when augmented with Books, gives him a 50% chance to place a Block Active Skills debuff on all enemies, making him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Cillian is an ideal champion to have in Faction Wars for the Banner Lords, thanks to his unique kit that focuses on controlling enemy champions with abilities such as Stun, Block Cooldowns, and turn meter reduction. To make the most of his abilities, Cillian must be built with a high degree of accuracy and speed, allowing him to land his control skills effectively.

In conclusion, Cillian the Lucky is a prime example of how perseverance and determination can turn adversity into an advantage. While he may have lost his horse, he found a new purpose in the game, becoming one of the most coveted champions in Raid Shadow Legends. His control abilities and Faction Wars suitability make him an excellent addition to any player’s roster.

Cillian the Lucky Champion Reference

Below is a reference of the artifacts equipped on Cillian the Lucky used in Arena, Faction Wars and Doom Tower. Cillian the Lucky is equipped with Relentless Set and Accuracy Set. These artifacts have a balance of ACC, SPD, C.RATE, ATK% and HP% stats allows Arbiter to survive in battle much longer. ACC is required for Cillian the Lucky to inflict his Block Active Skills, Decrease Speed and Stun debuff as well as apply his instant negative effect of reducing enemy turn meter. SPD stat plays the most important role here to ensure Cillian the Lucky is able to start the round before any champion, so he can quickly crowd control enemies especially the ones that are dangerous to your team! He is excellent against crowd controlling Mortu-Macaab in Doom Tower (Hard Mode Floor 109) who can potentially 1 shot and block revive your champions!

Cillian the Lucky Champion Lore

Some are born to privilege, some earn it. Some attain greatness by force of arms, others by wisdom. Certain heroes were simply in the right place at the right time. Sometimes all it takes to achieve renown is luck, and then to parlay that good fortune into a long and successful career. But it is rare for good luck alone to be the force driving one’s greatness, consistently, throughout many perils and trials. After all, luck is fickle… for most.

Cillian was a squire in service to a knight of Kaerok called Guelgach. His master was loved and respected, and Cillian hoped to one day match the knight’s chivalric greatness. But he was not suited for the role. More at home feasting and carousing than jousting and warring, he tried and tried to master the disciplines of knighthood, but fell short with every attempt. His swordplay was lackluster, his archery a menace to friend and foe alike, and his horsemanship was that of a drunkard even when he was sober. He never gave up, even though his master and the rest of his entourage would rather he did.

One day, while visiting the port city of Delanos, Cillian attended a banquet with his lord, but was ordered to leave when he accidentally spilled wine on a noted patrician. He wandered broodingly through the docklands, wondering if it was finally time to give up his dreams of knighthood. After a while he came upon a ‘ship’ the likes of which he had never seen: it was a living creature, a massive turtle, and on its back was a patch of forest growing on a crust of turf adhered to the ancient reptile. Asking the attendants at the gangplank, he learned it was a beast-craft of the Sylvan Watchers. Aflame with curiosity but denied a tour by the insular Sylvans, he experienced a rare alignment of strong desire and momentary competence, and managed to sneak aboard anyway. He entered the cultivated glade on the turtle’s back, marveling at the strange and beautiful foliage that only the Sylvan could produce.

In the center of the wood, a Fae, a spirit guardian of the vessel, appeared before Cillian. He had never heard of the Fae, nor their general mischievous nature. Guileless, Cillian greeted the creature, and the Fae asked Cillian why he had come and what he sought. It quickly became apparent that Cillian was a simple soul. He readily confessed his failures and bad luck. He told the Fae of his dreams of glory, and the glowing, tittering being simply chuckled. It promised Cillian a blessing for being so honest, and then leapt into the tree canopy and vanished amid the foliage. Cillian stumbled off the turtle-ship amazed, keeping the encounter a secret.

Cillian rapidly became one of Guelgach’s greatest assets. When sent to do mundane paperwork, Cillian always seemed to find the documents and tools he needed in the first place he looked. While Cillian accompanied the knight, misfortunes would strike others nearby, but always avoided Cillian and his master. Wild coincidences converged whenever Cillian attempted a feat he was previously incapable of. A sudden bit of pollen up his nose caused him to sneeze while holding a bow at full draw, and he let go only for the arrow to strike true and hit the bullseye. When he sparred, his swordplay little less clumsy than ever, but his opponents would stumble and trip so that his blows landed regardless. In a joust, his opponent’s lance would splinter or their horse would throw a shoe, letting even Cillian’s mediocre skill prevail. Gradually Cillian realized that the Fae’s blessing was real: his newfound luck was truly supernatural.

Cillian’s growing number of successes made him a sensation of the court, and was given more responsibility. But the more he benefited from this power, the more he realized its drawbacks. His good fortune was not manifesting within him, it was being hoarded, drained from others around. What counted as a stroke of good luck for himself amounted to disastrously bad luck for someone else — usually a foe or rival, but sometimes innocent strangers nearby. Though Cillian was now respected and entrusted with importantjobs, just as he had always dreamed, his triumphs felt hollow and he was pricked by guilt knowing his success came at the expense of others.

More responsibilities led to greater scrutiny of Cillian, Guelgach and his advisors suspecting something strange was afoot. So the blessed man confessed what had happened. Cillian testified that luck alone was not enough to be worthy of service. He then departed on a self-imposed quest, staying away from others to avoid stealing their luck, attempting to reach the Mistwood where the Sylvan dwelt so he could give the Fae its luck back.

Cillian the Lucky Storyline

The lands of Teleria are never short of Champions, albeit not all of them fit the idealized tales of stalwart heroes or dreaded villains. Just like some warriors forge their legends in battle with peerless talent, so too some stumble into the spotlight through sheer dumb luck. This is one such tale. Sir Cillian was never blessed with an impressive stature or any particular grace. He ever was, as he is now, portly and cheerful, far more interested in attending the next feast than winning glory on the field of battle. As a page in the service of Sir Fadrique – an exalted Knight of Kaerok – Cillian was the least talented student of all arts martial. He was awkward and clumsy with the sword, could not hit a target with a bow if it was set more than ten paces away from him, and could barely ride a horse without falling over his head. He was ridiculed by his peers and mercilessly berated by his tutors, though no amount of beating could awaken the talents that were simply not there. One fateful day, Cillian’s impressive display of ineptitude made him the target of the Lord’s ire and he was forced to flee the castle. He sought to hide in the woods that surrounded Fadrique’s ancestral estate and, true to his nature, lost his way mere minutes after entering the forest thicket. Hapless, he roamed the overgrown paths for hours upon hours until finally coming across a hidden glade. There were voices coming from the glade, pure and clear, elated as they sang the songs of joy. Mesmerized by the beautiful music, Cillian made his way to the glade, and what he saw there would change his life forever. Dancing ‘round a mighty oak that grew in the very middle of the glade and clad in clothes of bright colours were the forest faes, their voices joining together to praise the rebirth of nature that spring brought. Cillian was dumbfounded and froze on the spot, observing the jubilant spirits for what seemed like an eternity before a drowse overtook him and he fell into a deep slumber. When he woke up, the faes were gone as if they never existed and, at first, Cillian assumed he had dreamt it all up. But, as he got up to his feet, something slipped off his chest and onto the ground beneath. The young page leaned over to find a four-leaf clover of such a vibrant green it stood out immediately in the fresh grass that covered the forest floor. Not one to let a bit of luck go to waste, he gathered the leaf and hurried away from the glade. From that day onward, Cillian’s every undertaking was blessed with uncanny fortune. He found his way back home without stumbling off the correct path even once, and in the days that followed he somehow managed to pass every single test he had failed before. His opponents would stumble and fall, his arrows would find their mark no matter how laughable his technique was, and he eventually lucked his way to Knighthood. As a Knight of Kaerok, Sir Cillian won many a joust when the horses of his rivals veered off course or rose to their haunches inexplicably a second before his lance dislodged their rider to the cheerful applause of the observing crowds. So too did many foes find their end in the most undignified way, such as Xensor the Grim – an infamous necromancer – tripping over his own cloak and stumbling off the edge of his tower moments before unleashing a deadly spell upon Sir Cillian. Or the Orc chieftain Arzhak the Bloodthirsty, whose band of raiders terrorized an entire Duchy for years, falling victim to a swarm of angry hornets when Sir Cillian accidentally dislodged their nest upon Arzhak’s head. Of course, the commoners care little what force ensures their hero’s success, and over the years Cillian’s tale grew and spread far and wide. To this day he remains a beloved and famed Knight, whose deeds are eclipsed only by his love for ale and song.

    I just got a 6 star blessing for Cillian the Lucky! 😁

    Right now his build is set to 2xPerception and 1xSpeed..
    but I have no idea what to use him for now that he has 6 stars blessing! 🤔

    – Does anyone have a recommendation for where I should build him up to? 🧐 🙏

  2. Raider17

    Would really appreciate it y’all can help me out with a question/advice.

    I’ve got a Cillian The Lucky, and I’m wondering if I should use him to “Empower” Ronda?

  3. KPATS

    I wouldn’t call him S tier because of his block active skills, useful for HDT but there are other attack champs that do this too.

    Karato Foxhunter has almost the same kit and requires less books.

  4. PhleBuster

    After the buff, Cillian is absolute S-tier for the hardest content like DTH floors and arena. Completely locks out enemy teams including Peril.
    Start the fight with a 2-3 turn (with mastery) aoe 100% block active skills. Then follow up with 2-turn single target stun?? Even A1 adds more control with meter drain and -SPD.

    Before the buff, I was able to make it through DTH waves with a fair bit of manual work toward the end. After the change and swapping Cillian in, I can auto them.

    He was already one of the best resistance build counters to Head of Mischief but the new passive change makes him possibly *the* best champion for the role (while his damage output was also increased with the new AoE attack).

  5. Stirling Miller

    Incorrect character referece in: ‘ACC, SPD, C.RATE, ATK% and HP% stats allows Arbiter to survive”
    should refer to Cillian

  6. rwh531

    He looks like he would be a great Arena offense team, I mean his a2 can have a huge impact for any player who doesn’t just auto their way through arena.

  7. Shahram

    I slept on him. Got all 4 epics to fuse him but Demytha & Thylessia looked so fun to play with

  8. Mark

    How exactly do I use him in Dt hard against mortu? I just pulled him and ironically the last doom tower rotation I got stuck at 106 hard against mortu.

  9. Svraka

    i love to use him against many bosses with psylar. between hes a1 and hers a3, many times boss wont eaven get turn.
    and the damage he deals is awsome! and eaven without AOE attacks, he can dominate many battles with little luck and ton of books, locking theyr skills, stuning and decreasing turn meter. just great champion in many areas!

  10. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    This guy is great. I used him to complete the Bannerlord crypt last year, and now I just used him to take out the brand new Gryphon DT boss (Hard 10) in half as many turns as with any other combination I’d tried so far (which consists of a bunch of crazy legos), and that’s with zero books. I followed Ayumilove’s general build here. Having the TM reduction in tandem with another champion or two who have that (I used Scyl and Tuhak) seems to be an effective strategy vs the Gryphon.

    A few typos on this page: Relentles[s] missing the last “s.” Mention of Arbiter (instead of Cillian) in Cillian’s Reference paragraph, 2nd sentence.

  11. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Oh great–I randomly pulled Cillian yesterday from a one-off ancient shard and laughed. I thought he was a joke champion. But it looks like he’s actually a serious lego!

  12. SVOstroski

    Using him with Swift Parry set, interesting strategy with all passive skills….helped me to do Spider 20 …enjoying to look him at Arena …. thumb up for this hero

  13. Loki

    One of my few legendaries, use him in PvE for TM control and in tag team arena. Sometimes the combination of buffs he cycles through is hilarious, its like he has a mind of his own. He easily soloed the first faction wars boss.

  14. Fluffycock

    Cillian is now A tier? :0

  15. Wit

    The in game rating are low because of he was fusion.
    And the people who are negative go watch the videos. They are all very positive. Murder Inc. Is PVE and Hellhades arena. Chosen and Stew are also very positive.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Buzzregog: Thanks for reporting this champion missing from the Block Cooldown Skills! I’ll add him into the list.

  17. Buzzregog

    This doesn’t seem to be getting caught when searching for Block Cooldown Skills.

  18. Ayumilove Post author

    @gabriel: All Legendary Champions are not food as they are difficult to obtain. Certain champions only excels when they are geared correctly. For instance, if Cillian the Lucky is geared to deal as high amount of damage, he can defeat Rotos the Lost Groom without even triggering his passive skill. His skill damage multiplier is also very high and able to deal massive damage to enemies, checkout MurderInc video as shown in this guide.

  19. gabriel

    hey I am thinking this guy is food right?

    He doesn’t even seem to be as good as my rare/epic faction team. I am struggling to even find him a place.

  20. Maxi

    What is this clown doing in the A tier?

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @paul medcalf: Thanks! I have updated Cillian’s total skill tomes from 9 to 15.

  22. paul medcalf

    Sorry Books should be 15 not 9.

  23. Cyanidearm

    Lasting Gifts does not work with his passive. Unsure if this is by design or a bug

  24. Mike

    His spider rating in game is only 2.6. Why is it so high here?

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @EpicCoinFlip: Lasting Gift extends all buffs that the champion places. Therefore, it should work with Charmed Life.

  26. EpicCoinFlip

    Does Lasting Gift work with Charmed Life?

  27. LordFlam

    Where does this hero rate on the tier list?

  28. Ayumilove Post author

    @Charlie A: I have updated Cilian the Lucky basic data (Faction and Rarity) to be sync with the one in the game! I have also added a video by Murderic Raid and mastery guide into this page.

  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @Cerulien: Cillian the Lucky has Decrease SPD and Stealing Turn Meter on his default attack, which makes him a great champion by stopping the boss from ever consuming the Spiderlings! Pair him with another champion to take care of the spiderling summon with AoE HP Burn or AoE Damage will allow you to defeat this boss easily.

    Hi, thanks for this guide. However his faction shows as “Undead Hordes” not “Banner lords”… At least it rhymes 😂 Also he’s not showing on the overall tier list. Appreciate all your work.

  32. Mahow

    @Cerulien, because of the Turn Meter reduction.

  33. Cerulien

    How is he 5 stars on spider?
