Fahrakin the Fat Review

Fahrakin the Fat is an Epic Attack Spirit champion from Barbarians faction in Raid Shadow Legends. where he can be obtained from Ancient Shards and Sacred Shards. He was added in Raid Shadow Legends on January 14th 2021 (Patch 3.20). His abilities mainly revolves in debuffing single-target enemy with HP Burn, Poison Debuff and Decrease Defense. This makes him an ideal candidate for bossing especially in Clan Boss and Dungeon bosses. In addition, he also has similar skill kit as Kreela Witch-arm where he buff up his allies with Increase Critical Rate and Increase Critical Damage before performing an Ally Join Attack with the exception that he is not joining the attack. Apart from that, he has a unique passive skill that mitigates a portion of the received damage to his allies to enable him to survive longer in battle! Overall, he is an exceptional Epic champion who can help players to progress further in raiding boss much more effectively.

Fahrakin the Fat Champion Lore

Fahrakin the Fat is a name well-known to the gamblers and guild-bosses of Velyzar. Once, he was just another nameless fighter, destined to die in an arena and be forgotten. Now, he is one of the most powerful chieftains of the Krokhan Desert.

Fahrakin was but a boy when his father, an animal handler for the Caravan Guild, sold him to the Gladiator Guild in return for his debts being forgiven. The youth had strength and stamina, but no real skill. He underwent a brutal training regimen that was nearly the death of him more than once, but he persevered and took his place in an arena. At first, he was intended to be fodder and nothing more; a minor challenge for a more popular fighter, or something to whet the appetite of one of the monsters employed in the pits.

But during his first bout, matched against one of the large sand-scaled lizard-beasts of the Krokhan, the crowd watched in stupefaction as the young gladiator distracted the beast with the polished surface of his shield, and then deftly sliced through the tendons in three of its six legs. He clearly knew its weaknesses. With the monster incapitated, Fahrakin allowed himself a moment of triumph. It was almost his undoing. The lizard-beast spat venom at him, momentarily blinding him and burning his flesh. Fahrakin collapsed in agony.

When he awoke, Fahrakin found himself confronted by the wizened, grinning face of one of the arena beastmasters, Ouse. Ouse was not a man of Velyzar, but rather the chieftain of a Nomad clan contracted as beast-hunters by the Arena Guild. Ouse questioned Fahrakin and found that the young man’s father had taught him how to observe an animal and render it harmless. Intrigued, Ouse asked Fahrakin if he would be interested in joining his clan. Fahrakin readily agreed, preferring the much less dangerous life of a Nomad to that of a gladiator.

In the months that followed, Ouse taught young Fahrakin more about hunting. The desert was inhospitable and full of unnatural creatures. Great cats with armored hides prowled the crags and pebble-scaled serpents large enough to swallow a horse lay in wait beneath the sands. The Arena Guild desired such monsters to act as star attractions between more traditional bouts. But Ouse was old, and he hoped that the excelling Fahrakin would take his place as beastmaster. But first, there was one final test to pass.

Fahrakin was sent into the desert to capture a lizard-beast to replace the one he’d injured in his debut. After several days he found one’s trail and located its lair. He remembered the venom, this time blocking it with the same polished shield he distracted the creature with. He returned to the clan dragging the bound and disabled reptilian, and Ouse welcomed him as a full member of his clan. Fahrakin went on to capture many beasts for the arenas, and brought much wealth to his new people. And in time, he replaced his mentor not just as beastmaster, but as chieftain.

These days, Fahrakin rarely conducts monster hunts himself, having grown sedentary in his age, behavior that has earned him his derogatory moniker. Instead, he has trained his people to find and capture the monsters the arenas hunger for. But no one but himself is allowed to handle the great branding iron gifted to him by his mentor. With it, Fahrakin marks the captive creature as the property of his clan, so that all who see it in the arenas will know who captured it.

    A lot of new players will get him this weekend. What is the best advice for those of us who welcomed him to the squad? Builds are most welcome.

  2. fergyjr420

    Ratings for Phantom Shogun? He does well for me in Lifesteal gear up to level 10
    I have him paired with Morrigaine(Lead), Ronda, Doompriest & King G

  3. Scott

    This guy is 5 star in Fire Knight. A3 pops the shield open for sure. If you have an alure going next you are good to go

  4. jonathon mccue

    Mark you spelled Spirt Haste wrong!

  5. Mark

    couldn’t you make an argument to use lasting gifts over sniper ? the 30% chance of extension over 5% extra t o land debuff . so master hexer lasting gifts instead of this geeric tree build you chose ?

  6. FreaknGenius

    Is there any reason to not ascend him past two stars to avoid the damage spread passive? Some of my nukers are a bit on the fragile side and I depend on heals to keep them going as is – not sure I want them taking part of Fats damage. Thoughts?

  7. Savriltheblack

    Can anyone confirm that bodyblock does not trigger additional instance of Geomancer’s or Brogni’s passives? tested him out in NM and the amount of reflect damage instances looks like the same

  8. courageouslio

    nevermind. it still shows him as 3 star in the champions list on FK’s page

  9. courageouslio

    he should be higher up in rank for fire knight. his a3 allows all ally to attack, significantly reducing the remaining shield hits

  10. Newonboard

    Why not put him in Relentless?
    Relentless + Perception and he rocks as his A2 and A3 will reload extremly fast in this way 😉

  11. Courageouslio

    @OurArtIsMurder they didnt take it out, most champions only show the first name on the post battle screens

  12. OurArtIsMurder

    so apparently they took out “The Fat” part of his name in-game
    only noticed today, when was this change made?

  13. Silicon

    Fahrakin was added to the game in 2021 not 2020.

  14. Hotrod

    I have a question on his passive “Deflect 20% of all incoming damage this champion receives onto all allies. The damage will be spread equally across all allies.”
    Knowing what we know about the “Ally Protect” mechanic where the champions own Crit DMG is used to calculate the damage received would it be the same thing for this in that each champion that gets the damage from the passive factors in Crit DMG?

  15. CargoKiller

    Just pulled him out of an ancient shard, in today’s start of the Halloween events. From this page, I couldn’t be happier!

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Beardo: I have updated Fahrakin the Fat skill tomes from 13 to 12. Thanks for the correction!

  17. Beardo

    “TOMES: 13 (A1 A2 A3)”

    actually 12 (4+6+2) :-]

  18. Dan Martin

    I’m not sure why Fahrakin is rated 3* against the Fire Knight. I find him indispensable. At least on manual. When he does his beatdown that’s 4 attacks to make him turn and he has a great decrease defense, HP burn and poisons.

  19. Broccoli

    @Apple_Pie While I am not sure about other Double Maneater teams, I use the Fats in my Bat-eater team shown in SkratchAK47’s Fahrakin video. Got me into comfortable 2 key UNM damage with a lot of room for improvement. With the Team Setup function, I am able to full auto UNM, NM and Brutal.

  20. sonicgundam

    @darwin180985 It’s not even alure specific. so long as you’re relying on a1 turn meter reducers (armiger, alure, etc) you can utilize team positioning with ally attack to both get the shield down at the start and keep it down for good. i really don’t understand the 3* rating for fire knight, as he’s imo better than the second alure. he’s exceptionally good at getting proper mileage out of apothecary on auto because its very challenging to get apoth to actually use his a1 when the shield is up. apoths a2 and 3 are off cooldown so regularly that the timing just never lines up that he uses his a1 to bring down the shield. fahrakin solves that.

  21. Darwin180985

    One question, Farrakhan’s A3 “Beatdown” pretty much single handedly brings down the fire knights shield every time it’s used. My runs with Alure at fire knight 18-19 were at like 60-75% success rate until I started running Farhakan with her, it’s been 100% success rate since. Before we had to outlast a few rounds of the decrease speed debuff before alures A1 opened him up for good…but with farhakan we get his shield opened immediately and the fire knight never gets a single turn. I get that’s an allure specific scenario but theoretically as long as you are running any A1 multi hitters(which should always be the case with a fire knight team) he still has the same value added. I think that should bump his fire knight rating up more than 3 stars yea?

    Either way Thanks for the help and thank you so much for this site! I don’t know what I would do without your work!

  22. Jon

    Time his A3 on FK when you clear the trash and that shield is down quick. 3 stars a little harsh

  23. apple pie

    Thank you for your wonderful site.
    Some people say that using Fahrakin for an unkillable party in a double maneater is off, is it because of his A3? Does it affect the turn meter?

  24. Timbo 23

    Technically he doesnt actually team up

  25. Elisebrutality

    I think you want him def and sup mastery for arena, he’s just a buffer for you dmg in that mode

  26. Salusa

    I’m using him in warcrusher unkillable as replacement for Draco and he’s doing a great job. Team’s dmg is in the range 50-55M, with Fahrakin doing around 18-19M.

  27. 𝓂ℯ𝒹ℯ𝒾𝓇ℴ𝓈

    @WileyMan: excellent advice which makes sense, I’ll have all of that in consideration, thanks a lot!

  28. WileyMan

    @Medeiros: If you have a speed-tuned team with CA (Skull Crusher) @ AA (Fahrakin), Frozen Banshee & Fahrakan are more than enough poison w/o help. You could get rid of both Kaels & Teela, making room for a Weaken Champ and the one debuff you are missing: An Attack Down Champ.

    If you have one of the Epics with Attack Down on the A1 and a good Aura (Tayrel, Sepulcher, Jareg), this team will take you all the way to 3-key UNM or higher.

  29. WileyMan

    @Richard Petzoldt: You are mistaken on the cooldown for Beatdown. Booked is 4. If it was 2 as you state, this guy would be an OP Lego.

  30. 𝓂ℯ𝒹ℯ𝒾𝓇ℴ𝓈

    @SkywhaleExpress: thank you!

  31. SkywhaleExpress

    @medeiros: I would replace one of the kaels, preferably the one that dies first, unless it does significantly more damage than the other.

    I just got him too. Can’t wait.

  32. 𝓂ℯ𝒹ℯ𝒾𝓇ℴ𝓈

    I just got this champion from a shard and I want to build him for CB. My current team does okay on Nightmare CB (but could be way better) and consists of:
    Skullcrusher (for the counterattack); 2x Kael (for poison), Frozen Banshee (for poison sensivity) and Teela Goremane (the only lego on the team, for the HP Burn and slight team healing).
    All of them are fully ascended, level 60 and have all masteries (and most have books) – once I get Fahrakin the Fat to this stage, who do you all recommend me replacing? Teela Goremane or one of the Kaels? It’s worth nothing that one of them is built for Arena and the other for CB, following the advice from this site. I didn’t build them the same so I can get more usability out of them across various game modes.
    Thanks in advance and keep up the amazing work on the site! 🙂

    @Casey: If that’s the case, then Charged Focus would not be useful for Fahrakin the Fat. I’ll update the mastery to use other mastery on the Support tree.

  34. Casey

    Is there a reason for using Charged Focus when he prioritizes his A3 on auto?

  35. Richard Petzoldt

    Aiyumi you need to rate Fahrakin 5 for Dragon. His Beatdown move can stop the scorch almost every time and his poison skill can kill the dragon fast. It helps if you have him fully booked like I do. Cool down of only 2 on Beatdown.

  36. Oliver Parmo

    Fantastic champion. Just built out and for me is as good as Kreela due to the fact he is easier to book and the debuffs he brings to places like the Arena, Clan Boss and the frost spider. I have mine built out with high defense, accuracy and high HP rather than high crit damage. The main drawback is that he is only a single hit champion on the A1 and A2 but regardless, he is still top draw.
