Death Hound Review

Death Hound is a Common Attack Magic affinity champion from Undead Hordes faction in Raid Shadow Legends. This champion can safely be used as a fodder to rank up your champions. If you do not have any decent Poison champions, Death Hound can be used as a temporary placeholder to allow you to rack up some damage during early game against Easy Clan Boss. It’s not recommended investing resources in Death Hound (e.g. skill tomes and masteries), as he can be easily replaced by other champions who have more utilities and better base stats to survive against tougher bosses.

The stats prioritized on Death Hound are Attack, Critical Rate and Critical Damage to enable him to deal maximum amount of damage with his default attack skill. There is no need to gear Death Hound in Savage Set and learn Helmsmasher Mastery since his A1 skill ignores 100% Enemy Defense!

    Just six starred Death Hound. Was intrigued by his A1. I’ll test him out and see how it goes.
    Thanks for all you do, Ayumi!

  2. CrazyMan

    @Humin Bee-ungh

    Now… had he tried to divide by zero rather than multiplying, then I would say it was fictitious 😉

  3. Humin Bee-ungh

    @Jesse Ribbey I think you meant “facetious” ;D

  4. Jesse Ribbey

    Wow those multipliers are crazy high. They’re definitely the highest I’ve seen so far but I guess it could’ve been 10 thousand times multiplier and it still wouldn’t have mattered cause anything multiplied by zero is zero (I realize it’s not zero. I’m just being fictitious)

  5. Joe Garrison

    Early gamers… Use him in Magic Keep. I defeated Stage Ten thanks to him, on a day it was on my mission/challenge list of things to accomplish.

  6. Peter

    His multiplier on his A1 is rubbish, but with 100% crit he would be doing pure damage, ignoring defense, shields and block damage which should 1 shot most attack and support champs, or?

  7. Ninqe

    Just because one 5% Poison skill this champ doesnt deserve 5* on cb imo. I know the ranking system for common, uncommon champs, but never is this a 5* for cb even if its just common.

    @SeekerBS: He doesn’t do much damage other than his Poison debuff. I would not recommend investing too much resources in him. He can help on Easy Clan Boss but won’t have much survivability for Normal and Hard Clan Boss.

  9. SeekerBS

    What about normal or it is too hard for him to do some damage?

  10. Ayumilove Post author

    @max: Death Hound is useful for Easy Clan Boss. Equip him with sufficient Accuracy to land those Poison debuffs.

  11. max

    is he really useful for CB ? like normal or higher ?

  12. Art Griswold

    So, Death Hound cannot ascend to a 6 purple star, but can he up rank to a 6 star level 60?

  13. ClosedPoly

    Is this for early game only?

  14. Valon

    if this a1 was on any epic or legendary id jump up and down to have that 😀

  15. Catalin

    I don’t think anyone is going to do masteries for a common.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ed: Oh you’re right :O I forgot about it that Rings does not need the 5 star ascension.

  17. Ed

    They can get rings, though! 🙂

  18. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ed: Yeah, you’re right! I’ll update it now 🙂

  19. Ed

    Shouldn’t the amulet and banner for commons say “N/A”, since they can’t ascend to get those slots?
