    What blessing is best to use with Grappler?

  2. Zee

    I needed a fifth Skinwalker for faction wars, so I burnt 30 shards to see if I could get one. Fortunately, I got this guy and I’m very, very happy with him.

  3. kirpi17

    only good for 50+ lvl fire knight

    up to stage 7, fyro can’t deal enough damage to get rid the shield he gives. because of that no reflect damage done to fyro. useless in low levels.

    I’m using relentless + speed sets on him, it’s good but I don’t recommend. 3 speed sets are better afterall

  4. Roger Huggett Jr.

    If he’s 5 star in fire knight how come his usability is N/A?


    I dont have idea why he is ranked as a A tier. Low chance of weaken debuff, small version poition, twice hitting only and low version shiled with long cool down. He should be a C in my opinion.

  6. spinni

    Is grappler useless now that I have heroes like Apothecary and Captain Temila to help me? I also have Shaman who has a revive so idk

  7. Dargentina

    Very useful hero for FtP or newer players.

    I used him a lot along Valerie (throwing shields alternating) and Frozen Banshee (Poison sensitivity) ((along Coffin Smasher)).
    Gave him a Poison set, to compensate the lesser version with quantity (since his A1 can apply 2 extra poisons) and Frozen Banshee lack of poison while waiting for Poison Sensitivity, and because his A2 missed a lot (he’s not fully booked, and I’m not bothering).

    He’s actually decent for Fire Knight, since whatever he does, it will reduce the FK shield.

    @Scar: If your Clan Boss team does not have any dedicated healer or person who can mitigate the incoming damage, then Grappler would be useful here. However, his usage is kinda limited for early game as he will be replaced by other champions that can provide better version of Poison and Weaken. I would recommend going with Coffin Smasher as he can inflict HP Burn and most importantly Decrease Attack. He will be viable till Nightmare Clan Boss.

  9. Scar

    Should i choose grappler or coffin smasher for clan boss? Have only maxed kael for cb.

    @tadaska: Grappler is a decent Support champion to be used in Faction Wars to sustain the team into the battle.

  11. tadaska

    Why is he ranked as A? I just pulled him and to me he looks unremarkable. Is it just for Shield and Reflect Damage?

  12. Michael Ray Payne

    Why go for Warmaster instead of Oppressor when speed and debuff stacking is far more important then attack damage for Grappler?

  13. Mwolf

    Should Grappler be in the category for AOE shield buff or is he in target category because he doesn’t place it on himself?

  14. Ayumilove Post author

    @KarlInCharge: You can only apply a maximum of 10 debuffs at any point of time to the Clan Boss. This also applies to Champions too.

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @Papi: More HP% and DEF% to allow Grappler to survive longer as he is mainly for Support Role in battle. He won’t be attacking much when he is casting his Support Skills half of the time.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jesse Habets: All champinos can hold up to 10 buffs and 10 debuffs at any point of time.

  17. KarlInCharge

    @ Jesse Habets; Im pretty new to the game, only been playing about 2 weeks. I just pulled him tonight and it seemed like a good time to try to learn about poisons. I tried him on the easy clan boss and even at rank 4 level 21 he was out dmging my acended 5 stars elhain. But i noticed he was placing 6 poison debuffs a throw and eventually it didnt seem like the boss was taking damage.

  18. Jesse Habets

    Am I the only one who experiences a glitch with his poison debuff? Both on dragon and CB i sometimes saw him place 6 poison debuffs, and stacking them well over 10 debuffs. As soon as the enemy has more then 10 debuffs it simply won’t take any damage from poisoning anymore.

  19. Papi

    Why defense if the attacks are attack based?

  20. Edgedemon

    Arouet you dont have to make damage with grappler hes so high in ranking because he has debuff and buffs on all his attacks.
    you want him with a def/speed build so he can keep stacking those debuffs and allow heavier hitters to deal more damage

  21. Arouet

    I think his Stat priorities are wrong. While he’s a DEF champion, all of his skills are based on ATK but you have his priorities set to DEF.
