Exemplar Review

Hailing from the esteemed High Elves faction in Raid Shadow Legends, Exemplar is a unique piece in the vast chessboard of champions. With her status as an Epic Void affinity champion, she carries a certain mystique. But let’s be honest, she’s not exactly the poster child for “greatness” in the champion lineup. With the recent Patch 4.20, the Void Rebalance swept in, giving Exemplar a little nudge in the right direction. This update tinkered with her A1 ability, injecting a bit of relevance into her skill set for those special, off-the-beaten-path situations. Think of her as that quirky gadget you occasionally find surprisingly useful.

Where Exemplar does get a chance to shine, somewhat like a dim flashlight in a dark room, is in her encounter with Iragoth, the Eternal Dragon in the Doom Tower. Here, her High Stance (A1 ability) morphs into a kind of magical key, locking out enemy skills while also delivering a solid Weaken debuff. This makes her a dark horse contender in this particular battle. As for the Fire Knight, her Pincer Attack (A2 ability), with its brisk two-turn cooldown, does bring something to the party – like a guest who brings a fun game to a gathering. While she’s not the life of the party, she does add a little extra something. And let’s not forget the Demon Lord Clan Boss, where she can sneak in a Weaken, assuming there’s room on your team roster. Last but not least, her Capture (A3 ability) is her sole crowd-control ability to freeze enemies from taking a turn and blocking them from using their active skills.

In summing up Exemplar’s recent buff, it’s a bit like adding a new paint job to an old car – it makes it more appealing, but it doesn’t necessarily turn it into a sports car. She’s opened up some new pathways with her improvements, but remains, for the most part, a situational pick. Exemplar, with all her enigmatic charm, is not the champion you call on for every battle, but in the right circumstances, she can surprise you.

    Her A1 doesn’t “inflict a Weaken debuff” Yet another person who doesn’t read skills carefully.

  2. bad bed bug

    with Warmaster you can never see more than 1 time as it procs only once per skill. It’s Giant Slayer that you should use on her to receive 1-3 procs per skill

  3. feral_ghoul

    I use her (mostly against Clan Boss) with Warmaster mastery and NEVER saw to proc 2 times (1st for the skill and 2nd for the extra hit) on her A1.

    For classic MythHeir comp she is perfect, like mini-Turvold.
    Nice attack, 2x 3 hitter, so perfect giant slayer.
    Also gives us Weakness always- something what u need on dps in this comp.

    That give her with decent gear 30kk dmg and lead team to 80kk+ dmg UNM.

    When tested in similar gear she make like 10kk less than Turvold.
    Also 10kk less than Ninja, but Ninja dont have weakness, so rest of the team make that 10kk less dmg, makes Exemplar better than even Ninja in this comp, thanks to her affinity.

  5. Jerbearnicorn

    At 6* fully ascended, she’s not 18,000hp, she’s 13,545. Maybe that changed in the rebalancing. It’s a bit of a challenge inserting her as the stun target for budget unkillable while making her a heavy hitter. Not impossible, but I wish she had 5k more HP!

  6. Jesus

    Her capture is now 4 turns with books can go 3 turns

    Hi Ayumi, thanks for the reply and reasoning why you prefer Warmaster.. I mostly use her for CB, not an Arena champion in my opinion.. Mostly cause she has no AOE and doesn’t really add much there outside of the potential weaken and freeze chance…

    For CB I am using Giantslayer myself.. I have found that the procs can be pretty bad, also what you have mentioned.. But at times she can do 2 or 3 procs at a time.. Which somewhat makes up for the times she doesn’t proc.. I also would add I have Apoth for a bit of a backup healer..

    She is not my top damager, cause that is still Kael.. But for a non-poisoner she does a decent dent on the CB (and I am full f2p with not great gear).. ^^

    Thanks again for the guides and for the tips and reasoning explained below.. 😀

    Thx for your reply! I found she is quite capable for cb even b4 t6 and booked.

    @Mick: Yes, you can use Giant Slayer for Exemplar.
    1. I prefer Warmaster for higher success rate of it being triggered on the first hit.
    2. There are times when Giant Slayer didn’t proc with Lifesteal equipped champion to fully heal her, she is then defeated by Clan Boss attack.
    3. If you do have healer as a backup where Giant Slayer failed to trigger, then its safe to use Giant Slayer.
    4. Other than that, Warmaster deals the same damage amount of 2 hits from Giant Slayer outside of Clan Boss.
    5. Other things to take note is Exemplar A1 attack is Extra Hit, which means it benefits more from Warmaster (60% proc rate on first attack, subsequent attack if critical occurs will be also 60%) similar to Elhain A1 attack.

  10. Mick

    Why not using gs but wm if she is 100% rate can do 3hits A1?

  11. Blackthorne981

    100% Critical Rate Artifacts… I got it 💩

  12. Blackthorne981

    Hi, first off, these guides are super helpfull, thanks alot!
    You said below if you equip her (Exemplar) with 100% Critical Rate. What does that mean exactly?

    Keep up the great work

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    @vitres: Exemplar is great for Clan Boss since she can perform multiple hits on her A1 if you equipped her with 100% Critical Rate. In addition, she applies 25% Weaken which is as good as Athel’s. Her attack is strong, hits like a truck. I faced her in Arena and she is capable of taking down or crowd controlling your champion with Freeze. Finally, this Champion is Void, so she is not bounded to any Affinity weaknesses 🙂

  14. vitres

    Can you explain why is this as excellent? Thank you!

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @IT_NuFaN: Oops, typo on the title section! I have renamed it from Kael to Exemplar. Thanks for spotting the mistake!

  16. IT_NuFaN

    Hello,! The equipement section says Kael, is it intended to be the same or it’s a mistake!
    Thank you for your effort!
