Ethlen the Golden Overview

Dressed in shimmering gold armor, this elven warrior instills fear in the hearts of his enemies. Ethlen The Golden, an Epic Attack champion from the High Elves faction in Raid Shadow Legends, leaves his opponents paralyzed and hesitant to face him again. Ethlen excels in dealing damage and controlling crowds, utilizing buffs to maximize his potential before unleashing powerful strikes.

With his signature move, Glimmering Gold [A2], he bestows upon himself a 30% Increase Crit Damage and a 50% Increase Accuracy buff, followed by gaining an extra turn. This sets the stage for his next move, Paralyzing Stakes [A2], which delivers two attacks to all enemies. The first hit guarantees a 100% chance of inflicting a Block Active Skills Debuff, while the second hit has the potential to induce True Fear in enemies who are not under Block Active Skills. Although it would be ideal to apply both debuffs to enemies without any conditions, the ability to block active skills proves highly effective in impeding opponents in various scenarios such as the Arena, Doom Tower waves, or Faction Wars.

Additionally, Ethlen possesses a penchant for striking at the core of his adversaries [P], allowing him to ignore 10% of the defense of support, defense, and HP champions when launching his attacks. Leveraging this advantage will undoubtedly enhance the impact of his blows.

Ethlen the Golden Champion Lore

Ethlen the Golden is a folk hero of Aravia who has been sighted by the desperate and forlorn from the Age of Hellfire centuries ago, up to the present day. No Elf could possibly attain such a lifespan, and so the Ethlen of the tales must have changed from one masked and veiled savior to another who took up the name and the distinctive gold regalia.

Though Ethlen adorns himself in rich golden splendor, he does not keep his arms and armor in a state of polished, gleaming perfection. They bear the dust of the road and dirt of the fields, the wear and tear of long journeys and tough battles, and shine only where the golden surface is worn smooth from constant use. Ethlen is no idle, ostentatious nobleman, though he always seems to hold himself with regal bearing and dignity. Likewise he speaks little, letting his deeds speak for him. His cause is protecting those who cannot protect themselves, from vicious wildlife, twisted monstrosities, and malicious Telerians in equal measure.

Ethlen’s interventions are famously brief and efficient. Alongside his taciturnity, Ethlen makes no excess movements, pointless flourishes, or uncalculated steps. He wields a small blade in close quarters, as well as his hooked staff, a famed instrument of his heroic rescues. He uses it to swing from branches, ward off beasts, lever fallen logs and boulders off of injured victims, and many other things.

And then there are his mysterious golden stakes, a common crescendo to Ethlen’s flurries of attacks. Hurling tiny needles of gold with deadly precision, Ethlen deals painful but minor wounds. But then, Ethlen – or perhaps the needles themselves — summons piercing crystalline manifestations thrumming with magic, which are drawn to the golden needles like lightning to a rod. The alchemical properties of gold, the most noble and imperishable metal, are much debated by cabalists, and perhaps Ethlen discovered a secret to exploit such an mysterious property. The results, whether Ethlen’s powers are holy, alchemical, or arcane in derivation, are quite distinct: grievous pain and fiercely persistent immobilization of the surrounding flesh.

Though Ethlen fights his share of Siroth-spawn with stoic determination to help those in need, he shows a greater penchant for combatting those mortals who, endowed with reason and compassion as the enlightened children of the gods, still choose violence against their fellows. In punishing brigands and cutthroats, Ethlen reveals the nearest glimmers of emotion or flair, using his paralytic golden missiles to thwart their shakedowns and predation and, if he can, inflict extra pain and humiliation on the thugs while bearing the innocent away to safety. In the Ugrun Swamp, situated between Kaerok and Aravia, for example, notorious bandits were disrupting the trade routes that were the long-suffering locals’ only link with the outside world. Ethlen left a band of their raiders face-down in the murk struggling to breathe through the disgusting slurry, their arms and legs immobilized by wounds from golden spines that would otherwise be superficial. But when a ferocious, mud-stained dire-wolf set upon the helpless bandits, Ethlen drove the beast away and saved them, too.

Though the frequency of his appearances has steadily waned, stories of the roving savior Ethlen have persisted down generations. Most think the first trained a disciple, who in turn trained his own successor, and so on. Others have wilder theories still, calling Ethlen an immortal Firstborn.

    Lucky, pulled it of a single void shard.

    I got a bit dissapointed, since my HE roster is awful, and was hoping this guy would be more helpful.
    Got carried on, and maxed his skills, and he’s okish.

    Good for arena offense, as the skill block/fear is fantastic without doubt, but if the battle carries on a bit, he’s done (he seems made of paper, and you need to put all to attack to nuke, so he goes down FAST).
    He could be a good candidate for reflex, but that stupid buffing skill ruins it, so Relentless is not a bad option.
    Other option is to go full speed and acc, skip nuke, and use him as a sort of Hegemon, with stun gear if possible.

    In FW didn’t really changed much for me, since he can wipe a wave of opponents yeah, but then he’s kinda useless ti’ll last wave.
