Elegaius Review

Elegaius is a Legendary Support Magic affinity champion from the Undead Hordes faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Despite being a mid-tier legendary, Elegaius possesses unique skills that make him a valuable addition to any player’s roster. Elegaius was introduced as a fragment summon champion, allowing all players to summon him provided they completed enough fragment events.

Elegaius’s skills make him a force to be reckoned with in Faction Wars. His ability to provide buffs and support to multiple champions of the same kind allows players to progress through waves with ease. Moreover, Elegaius is a strong champion for the Arena, with the ability to strip 2 buffs from all enemies and reduce their turn meter. However, players need accuracy to enable these skills. Elegaius’s skill set works great as a champion to set up damage dealers and support them in their battles.

Although Elegaius’s skills are valuable, his status as a mid-tier legendary limits his potential in some areas. Nonetheless, Elegaius’s unique abilities make him a valuable addition to any player’s roster, especially for those who are looking to improve their Faction Wars performance.

Elegaius’s story is not just about his abilities, however. In a world filled with darkness and danger, the Arbiter felt pity for a poor boy named Elegaius. He had been warned not to lick lampposts during the winter, but he did not listen. His tongue stretched four times its length, and he died being dragged away from that post. The Arbiter allowed Elegaius to join the undead, but could not fix his tongue.

This tragic story adds a layer of depth to Elegaius’s character. It shows that even in the world of Raid Shadow Legends, there is compassion for those who have suffered. Elegaius’s ability to support and protect his allies can be seen as a reflection of the Arbiter’s compassion for Elegaius, reminding players that even in a world filled with darkness, there is still kindness and hope.

Elegaius Champion Lore

The official chronicle of the Sacred Order positions the organization as wholly benevolent and just. According to its archives, its history is as pure as its duty to Lumaya – one that is free of scandal, corruption, or sedition. Anyone who has faced the terrifying zeal of a rogue Sacred Order purgation force would quarrel with this assessment. While many would point to any number of cruel and brutal recent incidents, there exists one tale in the Order’s early history that suggests the turmoil within its ranks has existed longer than many realize. That is the tale of High Priestess Elegaius.

A once pious priestess of the Sacred Order’s gleaming cathedral city, the Eternal Citadel, Elegaius became disillusioned with Lumaya. While Siroth’s influence on the world was plain to see, the Arbiter and her Lightbringers seemed the only link Lumaya had left with the mortal world. There was no word from Lumaya despite all the Order’s adoring hymns, no sign of direct divine intervention from their loving deity, and no answer to their pleas. There was only suffering and pain as the followers of Siroth ran roughshod over each corner of the world. To Elegaius, Lumaya seemed to have abandoned her creation to the wolves. It was in this turmoil and despair that Siroth himself saw an opportunity.

All it took was a mysterious black mask, which Elegaius found deep within the Eternal Citadel’s reliquary. It whispered to Elegaius, speaking the truth of the world, of Lumaya’s abandonment of Teleria, and that it knew how to claw back the attention of the Goddess. Elegaius listened to the mask’s every poisoned word. It called for a grand choir – something with a voice loud enough to reach wherever Lumaya had sequestered herself. Elegaius would lead the body and use the power of its volume to interrogate the Goddess, who had left her creations to suffer.

Using her rank and title, Elegaius assembled a great mass within the depths of the Eternal Citadel, from where she knew its cacophonous song would feel as if it could reverberate across the whole world. Elegaius led the chorus in its singing of Lumaya’s Light and Love. The congregation was brought to tears by the harmonies. It was then that the mask called out, begging Elegaius to wear it so they might call out to Lumaya together. After she donned the black mask, it bound itself to her face, and twisted into a horrifying visage. A great forked tongue lolled from its maw, while Elegaius’ voice grew guttural, strange, and eldritch. It became louder than the screams of the now horrified singers. It shook the very foundations of the Citadel, and the members of the choir writhed in agony. The melody had transformed into a hellish shriek, the force of it rending the very souls of its listeners from their bodies.

A formless void manifested around Elegaius, drawing in the tortured souls of her choir. The earsplitting howl reached its crescendo until suddenly… there was silence. Elegaius’ own body could not sustain the infernal magic and had collapsed, apparently now dead, under the weight of its power. But her corpse was not wholly inanimate. Where her life ended, her Undeath began. Leaving untold desecration behind her, Elegaius crawled away into the darkness before the Order discovered her sins, the souls of her damned choir trailing behind her. When priests and knights uncovered the devastation deep in the Eternal Citadel, and extracted confessions from the handful of survivors, they attempted to destroy all evidence of what happened. They then propagated word of a witch who had dared to breach the sanctity of the Citadel, who should be hunted down and watched for at all times.

That was long ago, but Elegaius is still said to haunt Teleria, gathering strength to one day complete her black mass. Together with her choir of damned souls, she still aims to finally tear through the bounds of creation, and demand an answer from her creator.

Elegaius Storyline

Countless horrors stalk Teleria. Many are the legends of monsters and evil spirits whispered among terrified mortals. As winter approaches and days grow shorter, these tales are ever more frequent – for the night of all unholy is upon us. But even now, with frightening fables so abundant, few dares speak of Elegaius, for her very name makes heroes and peasants alike tremble in fear. It is a legend originating from millennia past, long before the Stormwind Wastelands earned their name. Back in those blessed days, it was a fertile plain, home to many budding realms where wealthy rulers sought to outdo one another in splendor. Among them, one Archon had decreed that he was the most pious of all his rivals and ordered to raise a Temple of Lumaya, the likes of which Teleria had never seen. It was a mighty undertaking that drained the treasury and nearly led to a revolt when extortionate taxes were imposed on the citizenry, but, slowly, the construction went underway. Alas, blinded by hubris, the ambitious Archon failed to see the rot of corruption that had already poisoned his court. Elegaius, the High Priestess of Lumaya, had long lost her faith in the Goddess and fell under the sway of evil. The necromancers in service to Siroth opened her eyes and taught her the ways of ancient dark magic, one that would let Elegaius obtain power beyond her wildest dreams. And so she struck a terrible pact that would doom the entire city. As the construction of Lumaya’s grand cathedral went on, Elegaius committed countless atrocities in secret. She performed blood rituals, immured innocents within walls, desecrated relics, all while her supposed sovereign feasted and bragged about his religious fervor. The gears were in motion, and no one could stop her schemes from coming to fruition. At last, the day had come when the temple stood completed – so beautiful it brought grown men to tears. Proud of his achievements, the Archon called for a mass that would bring Lumaya’s blessings upon him. The entire city gathered as one, filling the temple and the plaza outside with a thousand-strong crowd that hushed in reverent silence when the High Priestess addressed them and called for prayer. That is when the horror began. The psalms of love and light changed, growing more vicious with every verse until not a single soul among the congregation could understand the language in which Elegaius chanted. No one could move a muscle, mesmerized by the strange incantation. Suddenly, a dagger of black steel flashed from beneath the Priestess’ robes. She drove it through her own heart, thus giving one last sacrifice to the Dark One, yet death did not claim her. With a shriek of agony, Elegaius’ body twisted, aging by decades until it started to rot like a bloated corpse. A shockwave of arcane energy erupted from the dagger in her hands, its touch turning people to withered husks as their souls were drained. Within a minute, none but the creature that was once Elegaius remained – an entire city gone, turned to a terrible monument of Siroth’s dark glory. But nothing lasts beneath the moon, and the weight of time had long reduced the once-proud city to ruin. Those who venture into this cursed wasteland speak of tortured shrieks that echo amid the broken walls of the temple that was to be the envy of entire Teleria. Legends say that the High Priestess Elegaius still dwells there, feeding on anyone foolish enough to enter her domain and patiently waiting for the new coming of her Master’s legions into the world. Woe betide those who cross her path, for this is a monster of ancient power. Even the mightiest Champions will be sorely tested against a foe such as this.

    Is he more of a doom tower boss champion than anything else? Judging from his skillset, it doesn’t look like he will be good on waves except A3 with a 4-turn cooldown only when booked. He doesn’t look like a good LEGO at all. For now, it seems like his best use for me is to sit inside the fragment summon tab as potential Champion Chase points.

  2. Craig

    First, who cares about the gender? I thought it was guy as well but the history from Plarium says it was a woman; nevertheless, emphasis is on WAS. It’s an undead thing! Who cares what it use to be. Further, Plarium has used male models for female champs and female models for male champs before. Biggest case in point, Rotos the Lost Groom.

    Anyway, I think the abilities are referring to Elagaius just taking damage as per normal. I took it to mean it just assumes you’re gonna get hit at one point.

  3. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    @ralph: Oh right–from the A1, though, you mean. I didn’t notice that. Yeah, Master Hexer is a fantastic choice, now that I see that.

  4. tictric

    After ranking up Elegaius, I was finally able to deal with the triple Madame Serris waves in Doom Tower hard (don’t have the gear to make her fast and tanky enough at lvl50). But not sure if I’m willing to put books into this one just for some stages in Doom Tower and FW.

  5. Tanuvan

    Hey. I have a question about the wording on his a1 and a3. When it says, “Decreases enemy Tum Meters by a further 0.2% for every 1% of HP this Champion loses.” on the a3 and the similar one on HIS (haha from earlier comments) a1, does that mean he damages himself with these abilities, or is it assuming the enemy being attacked has a counter attack, or is it talking about the damage he has currently taken?

  6. ralph

    @Tom for a 2-turn block skills from the A2 I guess

  7. Alek

    He looks exactly like the Nun from Conjuring 2..

  8. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Why Master Hexer? I don’t see that this would have any effect whatsoever on Elegaius.

  9. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    @Jerry: The -ius ending and the vaguely Judeo-Christian imagery imply to me that this is a Latinate masculine name … but who’s gonna tell Tellaria they have to follow rules like that? It’s fantasy. There could be no sex at all, since none of these champions exist outside of their very roughly defined avatars anyway.

  10. Geralt

    I think frenzy + perception set, focused on HP and ACC will be great in arena. She will go second, losing a lot of health and then reduces tm of enemies by a lot and then the damage dealers can go and nuke.

  11. Giblet

    @ayumilove, thoughts on whether to use dungeon or or fw build as a guide for Doom Tower?

  12. George

    Jerry, if you think Elegaius is a “she” then so is Zelotah and Catacomb Councilor, cause they share the same body model.

  13. nope

    How do you know this Champ a she, Jerry?

  14. Jerry Seinfeld

    How is it that no one has mentioned the fact Elegaius is a “she”???

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @DPS007: It could work out for Arena battles to tank the initial damage if the enemy begins the round first.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Altemzwo: Elegaius skill has a long skill cooldown and his skill removes random buff, which makes him not so reliable in Magic Keep. I’ll raise his rating to a max of 4 stars for Magic Keep.

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @scorch346: Thanks for your input. I have updated the guide above by removing the Immortal Set and Regeneration Set.

  18. scorch346

    I disagree with the Regen+Immortal setup. Yes, it could work BUT 3x immortal would give you 9%/turn heal + 45% more HP versus 10%/turn heal & 15% more HP. In terms of survivability, the 3xImmortal makes a lot more sense.

  19. DPS007

    what’s your take on a Shield+Perception set combo on her?

  20. Altemzwo

    Why only 3* for magic keep? He has a buff strip… might just be for 2 random buffs, but still, that should be at least 4* for that keep. He certainly enabled me to finally complete stage 15.

  21. DJ_ Benji

    This is a champion which is most valuable in the Arena and Faction wars, where his Block/Reduce Cooldown skills and Decrease Turn-meter are extremely useful. I think we all know how powerful Block Cooldowns can be in the Arena… Regeneration set might work on him too.

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    @SadOldGuy: Plarium has introduce the new Fagment Champion Fusion as a placeholder for us to do something while they prepare to release the traditional champion fusion, which requires 21 new champions (1 new Legendary champion, 4 new Epic champions, and 16 Rare champions).

  23. Ayumilove Post author

    @Breh: Currently Elegaius is excellent for Faction Wars to counter those 2 or more of the same type champions (e.g. Valkyrie, Thenasil, Sethalia, Martyr, War Mother) in Stage 18~21.

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @Osren: I would advise not to use dupe Legendary as a skill point as they are very difficult to get. Let’s just wait for Plarium to introduce a proper dupe system, which may vastly improve a champion by using a dupe champion into an existing champion.

  25. MrShovel

    I feel like swift parry would be pretty good for this champ, for the ability to stay at one HP consistently.

  26. SadOldGuy

    We got a LOT of new champions in the last month. Is this typical? (I am on day 87) I can barely keep up with what I already have summoned.

  27. Breh

    Maybe good in arena for trolls who run 4 kaels lel

  28. Osren

    would there be any reason to get a 2nd Elegaius? (Maybe to use as a skill point..)

  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @Blake Marvin: Currently Elegaius is useful for Faction Wars and areas where there are duplicate champions (e.g. Nightmare Campaign). There is a probability that he will be useful in Doom Tower, which will be released around first half of December 2020.

  30. Blake Marvin

    I also got him yesterday. I am reading into his Kit and just can’t see him being that useful tbh. Maybe he could be good for something in doom tower?

  31. Osren

    Got him today… from a Legendary Shard.

    Not sure if I want to continue getting fragments from the current event going on to get ANOTHER one of him.

    His “Spurned by Death ” ability seems very interesting.
    Haven’t actually used him yet.
