Ghrush the Mangler Review

Ghrush the Mangler is an Epic Defense Spirit champion from Ogryn Tribes in Raid Shadow Legends. Ghrush is obtained from Daily Login Rewards as a free Epic champion on Day 240. He is a great all-rounder champion who provides a variety of debuff and buff capabilities to the team, which is useful till end game.

His signature default attack Gore-Slick Maul (A1 Skill) inflicts Leech debuff on a single-target enemy, which allows your team to replenish their health upon damaging that enemy. This is an alternative to using Lifesteal Set to heal through direct damage from skills and Tier 6 Offense masteries (Warmaster and Giant Slayer). With this debuff, you can build your Clan Boss team around Leech debuff, and equip your champions in Stalwart Set for more survivability. Pairing Ghrush with a counterattack champion allows him to apply Leech debuff with higher uptime.

Ghrush Bonebreaker Stomp (A2 Skill) is a unique ability that inflicts either Decrease Attack or Decrease Critical Damage debuff on the enemies. However, it’s not recommended to have him as the sole champion to apply Decrease Attack debuff on Clan Boss due to the randomness of the debuff applied to the target. If you missed the Decrease Attack debuff, the Clan Boss can instantly wipe your entire team in a blink of an eye at higher turn/stages.

In addition, Ghrush Smothering Swath (A3 Skill) applies Continuous Heal buff on allies, so they can recover quickly from the injuries inflicted by the enemy. This is particularly valuable in Ogryn Tribes faction wars as there are scarced amount of healers to sustain the team in an intensive battle. He also brings a beneficial Defense Aura that works for Faction Crypt to boost your allies defenses.

Note: This is an all-rounder mastery setup recommended for players who summoned Ghrush during their early-mid game progression. This mastery helps in boss raids and champion battles. Once you progress to late game where you have variety of champions specialized for specific areas, then you can switch to a different mastery setup to enable this champion to be more efficient in that area.

Note: This mastery setup is focused on building the champion to be both high Resist and Accuracy to be effective against mobs of enemies rather than bosses. With high Resist stats, enemies will be unable to crowd control this champion or apply a debuff that reduces the champions sustainability in battle. High Accuracy allows this champion to apply debuff with fewer chances of it being resisted by the enemies, which decreases their ability to harm your team’s survivability.

Clan Boss (Team Counterattack)

Note: This mastery is recommended if you have a Counterattack champion in your Clan Boss team. Having a counterattack champion in your team means you need to speed tune your entire team so it goes in sequence. Hence, the mastery recommended here does not utilize masteries that boost this champion Turn Meter (e.g. Rapid Response, Arcane Celerity). The Support mastery boost your champion’s Accuracy stat and increases the duration of the buff on your allies and debuff on enemies.

Clan Boss (Self Counterattack)

Note: This mastery is recommended if you do not have a Counterattack champion in your Clan Boss team. The Retribution mastery allows your champion to have a chance to counterattack Clan Boss whenever Ghrush the Mangler receives damage that meets the required amount of damage for the mastery to proc. This allows him to deal extra damage and healing at the same time from either Lifesteal Set or Leech debuff from his default skill or Warmaster mastery. The Defense mastery provides him some additional Defense to mitigate some of the damage before it directly decreases his HP. If you are relying Leech debuff for healing, it’s recommended to gear him high Defense, Critical Rate and Critical Damage, so he can deal sufficient damage to heal close to the amount of Lifesteal Set provides. Stalwart Set is one of the recommended sets for late game to reduce the high amount of damage from Clan Boss when utilizing Leech debuff as healing.

  1. Hatewaitin42 day 11 player that pulled Ghrush

    Not sure what it is that Hatewaitin42 is so in love with specifically, but Ghrush is OK. His Multipliers are middle tier, his stats are mid tier, and his kit is average.

    If you need healing support he is helpful to bring as a secondary healer, but continuous heal and leech aren’t burst heals that will save people. They’re sustain abilities and for champs that don’t hit hard leech is worthless. Yes I’m aware warmaster yadda yadda. Warmaster hits for jack on waves and in faction wars.

    If his A2 was one of the abilities guaranteed instead of a chance to reduce atk or crit dmg I’d find him a lot more useful, but as is he can’t be relied on to apply atk down so I’m really struggling to understand buddy down there believing he is “S” tier.

  2. korn

    Hatewaitin42 – They are completely different character. Psylar and Runekeeper are Support champs and Grush is Defence. For defense, he is very good but there are many other that very good than him. Psylar and Runekeeper, both are TM manipulator. Both of them if tune correctly can make opponent doesn’t take a turn in a match

  3. 6WC

    @Line2PK – LS vs Leech isn’t as cut-and-dried. All things being equal and assuming WM/GS mastery on all champs, LS heals for 30% of damage done. Leech only returns 18%.

    But, you need 4 pieces of LS for the set to activate. Outside of your 2 off-set pieces, there’s no increase to desired stats outside of the rolls on each piece.

    Leech is a debuff, so you only need to hit to activate the heal. The “damage done” then relies more on individual champs and their desired stats. 100CR and over 200CD are easier to reach through set bonuses & the Forge.

    So now, all things still being equal, your team is hopefully hitting for more damage individually, theoretically that 18% is returned from a higher damage output which ideally is more than the 30% on LS from a likely smaller damage output.

    In addition to a champ’s main stat, Leech tends to allow players to look for more speed & accuracy also. More helps always.

    But until you’re certain an individual champ heals more, keep them in LS.

  4. Hatewaitin42

    Ghrush The Mangler is one of the top champions in the game, there really shouldn’t be any argument about this. He is versatile, Powerful, resilient, etc. He is easily a much better champion than Pysler or Runekeeper both of whom you have ranked S and Ghrush Ranked A. I have all 3 of these champions and would trade Pysler or Runekeeper for as 2nd Ghrush in a heartbeat. You also should have him ranked 5 star for Spider’s Den not 4 Star, and also for Arena Defense. I’m not trying to lean into you i’m just pointing out that Ghrush is a BEAST that you may not be utilizing properly.

  5. Line2PK

    I’m thinking of remove the Lifesteal set from my CB team, but The Leech debuff can really replace the Lifesteal?

    Hi! Thanks for all the hard work you’ve done on this site. I use it all the time.
    I was hoping to build this guy for my NM (hopefully eventually UNM) CB-Team. My team Is an ally-attack team utilizing Lanakis. I noticed that, while the mastery guides that you have provided are wonderful, you have not yet posted a mastery guide for this champion in an ally-attack CB-Team. If it isn’t too difficult, I would really appreciate such a mastery guide for this champion.

    @Esqarrouth: Hi, I have sent you an e-mail. I look forward to your reply 🙂

    @Ayumilove Send me an email. I have the game files and have access to all multipliers in json format.

    @Knee-Buckler: I have added a few variations of mastery setup for Ghrush the Mangler that I have used previously. It will depend on where you would use Ghrush most frequent and customize the mastery to make him suit best for that area (e.g. Clan Boss / Faction Wars / etc). Feel free to tweak the mastery based on your current situation (e.g. depending on the champions available in your inventory to help synergize them better).

  10. Knee-Buckler

    Any chance to add the CB masteries @Ayumilove ? As that is the part he does his work with the leech..

    Thanks in advance.

    @Esqarrouth: Thanks, I have added into the page above! Do you happen to know for Epic and Rare champions?

    I used the mastery guide that came from the Hellhades video (included Off/support trees) that another commenter used. He seems to be doing okay with that but would certainly like to know if there is better.

  14. Ravestream

    I need clanboss masteries for him.

  15. Linda

    Mastery for clan boss???



    You are correct. That being said, his healing is even better than what I mentioned. With the T6 mastery his Leech will heal more than the 22.5% Continous Heal.

    Just tons of healing when geared correctly!

  17. Power

    Clan boss mastery guide please

  18. infra


    Your calculations for total healing are wrong, specifically the 40% total healing

    The 22.5% he gets from the Continuous Heal Buff are based on total champ HP (heals for 22.5% of the champion’s max health each tick)

    And the Leech debuff causes the attacking champion to heal for 18% of *damage dealt*. So you can’t just sum up 22 + 18 because it’s not based of the same thing. In fact the healing from Leech will be much more that 18% of champions’ HP because of T6 mastery procs

    Hi MaxBT,
    I don’t have the gear to beat speed teams, so I only give speed to Skullcrusher. Instead I build a tanky team with Kantra, Infernal Baroness and Black Knight. For every hit I get, I fight back with AOE or stealing buffs.
    Still, I cannot beat Siphy teams…


    Thanks for updating the Clan Boss rating!

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @MaxBT: Based from your comment, I can guess you have not build a high resist tank, bomb suicide team, instant revive nuke team for Arena against high speed team. These strategy involves champions such as Cardinal, Skytouched Shaman, Candraphon, Rotos the Lost Groom, Souldrinker, Warmother, Seer, etc. To tank the initial hit or debuff, you can farm Shield Set and Immunity Set from Fire Knight dungeon. Shield Set used for high HP champion, whereas Immunity Set is placed on the cleanser champion. Speed tuned them so the cleanser can remove any debuff from your nuker and your nuker can go next for the kill.


    Hello Ayumi, Love the website! His Clan Boss rating are way too low. There are quite few videos out now and he is great in Clan Boss. Build him with 100% Crit Rate and his A3 will leave you with a total of 22.5% Continuous Heal in addition to the 18% you get from Leech. Total healing of 40.5%.

    He is a five star in CB since you don’t need lifesteal set on any of you champs anymore. His total benefit outweighs the Lifesteal benefit, which makes him and everyone CB champs much easier to gear.

    Hell Hades & Farbtoff (German) made a great video about him, as well as Ash.

  23. iron

    seems comments are only arena wise.
    Ratings show him as very good in FW and other areas… usnt him?

  24. MaxBT

    build a very tanky team against a fast Speed Team ? such a joke. Faster team control everything, slow team even can’t move till battle end, unless you have Tormin who freeze enemies during their actions.

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Powdy: Ghrust the Mangler could be use in a Speed Nuke Team against slower team in Arena. If you cannot outspeed the enemy team in Arena, you could do the opposite, build a very tanky team against a fast Speed Team.

  26. Powdy

    I maxed him to 60 with full lv16 gear, 3,5k defense, crit, crit dmg….
    I could not replace my lv50 reliquary tender with him wherever I tried him. To me he is pretty useless, maybe fully build as a nuker he could be acceptable for Arena (The continiuos heal doesn’t do much vs all the speed, nuke teams though, I prefer my Maneater/Apothecary over him in any case here aswell)?
    I’m kinda sad I maxed him after watching the guide video above and tryed him out in my teams and he simply didn’t do his job.
