Raid Shadow Legends Overview


There are over 600 champions in the game and each of them has a unique combination of rarity, affinity, and role. There are 5 Rarities (Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon, and Common), 4 Affinities (Magic, Void, Spirit, Force), and 4 Roles (Attack, Defense, Support, HP) in Raid Shadow Legends! Affinity plays a big part in determining the success to win against the opponent! Magic is strong against Spirit, Spirit is strong against Force, Force is strong against Magic. Void is neutral, it has no strengths or weaknesses.

PvE Content

The Campaign Stages are divided into 4 parts (Normal, Hard, Brutal, Nightmare). Players will need to clear the Campaign stage to move on to the next stage and unlock a new storyline regarding Teleria’s future. Clan Boss is the big boss in Raid Shadow Legends where you farm skill tomes, summoning shards, and exclusive equipment daily along with your Clan members! There are 6 Clan Boss difficulties (Easy, Normal, Hard, Brutal, Nightmare, and Ultra Nightmare), and each higher difficulty grants better reward drops depending on the total damage dealt by your team! There is also Doom Tower (Normal and Hard) for mid~end game players where you can farm additional resources in-game.

PvP Content

There are 2 types of Arenas where you can battle against other players’ team champion setup! There is Classic Arena and Tag Team Arena. Classic Arena allows you to earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals. These medals are used to boost your overall champion’s stats via the Great Hall. Tag Team Arena is also known as 3v3 Arena enables you to farm Gold Bars that can be traded for other resources in the game such as Skill Tomes, Champion Fragments and Forge Materials.

Top 10 Do’s and Don’ts for RAID Beginners

By following the guidelines below, you will avoid making most of the common mistakes that beginners made.


  1. Do dailies to earn the rewards.
  2. Invest in upgrading the champion’s equipment who can farm stages to level up your food
  3. Purchase the Gem Mine to earn gems to unlock Sparring Pit upgrades and Market slots.
  4. Get a 6 Star Champion as early as possible as it will help you greatly in all battles! Do not spread yourself too thin by leveling up multiple champions that you want to use but focus 1 at a time.
  5. Buy all the Mystery Shards from Market and save them for Champion Chase Tournament. You will need at least 1600 Mystery Shards to get the required champion for the Champion Fusion event.
  6. Buy all Uncommon and Common Champions from Market and use them as fodder instead of using Mystery Shards to save them for Champion Fusion Event.
  7. In early-mid game, focus on leveling up and booking champions who can help you in multiple areas in the game. Once you are in late-end game, then only prioritize champions who can help you unlock specific areas further.


  1. Don’t ever sacrifice your Void, Epic, and Legendary champions unless there’s really a good reason for it such as leveling up Skills on a Champion you have duplicates of. The reason is, that it’s difficult to get Void, Epics, and Legendaries every day. In addition, that Champion might be useful for a particular challenge you’ll find yourself struggling at some point.
  2. Don’t invest heavily into your Common and Uncommon Champions early in the game. They generally won’t be able to perform as well as you need them to be. However, there are some exceptions to specific champions such as Outlaw Monk and Saurus.
  3. Do not keep energy overcapped when possible as this prevents energy from regenerating.
  4. Do not take certain rewards right away like Double XP, Energy Refill, Etc.
  5. Do not fight arena teams you are pretty sure you will lose
  6. Do not fight the wrong difficulty clan bosses to avoid wasting keys

How to progress in Raid Shadow Legends?

  1. Equip your starting champion with LifeSteal set and Speed Set for better survivability.
  2. Get this champion to 6* and level up to Level 60 so he can help you clear all Campaign modes and farm Champion fodders.
  3. Get the basic masteries all level up to help boost this champion efficiency in clearing maps.
  4. Repeat Step 1-3 for 2 more champions who can assist you in clearing Clan Boss, Dungeon and Arena.
  5. With 3 6* Level 60 champions, start clearing Minotaur Stage 13 to get Giant Slayer or Warmaster mastery.
  6. Once you have done this, you can deal high damage to bosses in Dungeon and Clan Boss to reap better rewards.
  7. Repeat Step 4-5 for the remaining 2 champions so you can perform more efficiently in Dungeon, Clan Boss and Arena.
  8. Once your 5 core champions is made, you can blaze through all the content in-game in less than 2 months.
  9. All of this process will take approximately less than 6 months to complete as a F2P (Free to Play Player)
  10. It will be even faster for P2W (Pay 2 Win Players) who can spend the cash to progress faster in-game.

Raid Shadow Legends List of Buffs and Debuffs


  1. Ally Protection: The Caster Champion takes 25/50% of direct damage inflicted upon the Target Champion. Self-inflicted damage and Poison do not trigger this effect. Each Champion uses their respective DEF values for mitigating damage.
  2. Block Damage: Makes the Champion immune to all forms of damage.
  3. Block Debuffs: While this buff is active, the Champion is immune to all debuffs. Instant negative effect such as Decrease Turn Meter are not affected and work as normal.
  4. Bone Armor: A Champion starts each Round with a number of Bone Armor stacks. Each Bone Armor stack decreases the damage the recipient receives from a single hit, then disappears. A Champion can have a maximum of 3 Bone Armor stacks at one time.
  5. Continuous Heal: Heals the target Champion by 7.5/15% of their MAX HP at the beginning of their Turn.
  6. Counterattack: When attacked, the Champion with this buff strikes back at their attacker using their Default Skill. This attack deals 75% of the normal Default Skill damage. Can only counterattack once when attacked with a Multi-hit Skill. Does not counterattack in response to the enemy’s own counterattack. Does not count as a Turn. If the Champion who has Counterattack buff and has default skill that grants Extra Turn upon killing an enemy (e.g. Relickeeper), that Champion will not gain Extra Turn during the Counterattack session.
  7. Increase ACC is a buff that increases ACC of the recipient. Can increase ACC by 25% or 50%.
  8. Increase ATK: Increases the Champion’s Battle ATK (current ATK value, all other effects taken into account) by 25/50%
  9. Increase C.RATE: Increases the Champion’s C.RATE by 15/30%
  10. Increase C.DMG is a buff that increases the Critical Damage dealt to the recipient. Can increase the damage inflicted by 15% or 30%.
  11. Increase DEF: Increases the Champion’s Battle DEF by 30/60%
  12. Increase SPD: Increases the Champion’s Battle SPD by 15/30%
  13. Lightning Orb (Blessing): Whenever an enemy receives a buff or has their Turn Meter filled, places one Lightning Orb stack on this Champion. When activated, a Lightning Orb stack randomly protects one other active buff from being removed, stolen, or transferred. After activation, the Lightning Orb stack disappears. A Champion can have a maximum of 3 Lightning Orb stacks at one time. Whenever a Champion with 3 Lightning Orb stacks hits enemy targets, inflicts Bonus Damage to them based on their MAX HP. Bonus Damage can occur on each hit of a Skill, but does not count as an extra hit. After the Bonus Damage is applied, all active Lightning Orb stacks are removed from this Champion.
  14. Perfect Veil: A more powerful version of Veil which works as same as Veil except you do not lose the buff when attacking or dealing damage to an enemy Champion. Perfect Veil reduces incoming AoE damage by 15%.
  15. Reflect Damage: Any Champion attack a target with this buff will sustain 15/30% of the damage they inflicted with the attack.
  16. Revive On Death: If a Champion with this buff dies, he or she will immediately be revived with 30% HP and 0% Turn Meter.
  17. Shield: The Champion’s HP bar is reinforced for X Turns with a Shield effect. Damage is calculated normally but is first applied to the Shield (unless the attack ignores Shields, which is stated in the Skill description). When the buff expires or Shield value reaches 0, the Shield is removed and further damage applies as normal. Note: damage dealt to the shield does not count as damage dealt to the Champion, so effects such as Lifesteal do not benefit from it.
  18. Stone Skin: Stone Skin buff decreases the damage (except the damage received from Bombs and HP Burn), removes all debuffs except Bombs and HP Burn, gives Immunity to all debuffs except Bombs and HP Burn. Also, it gives additional Stone Skin HP. A Champion with the Stone Skin is immune to the Decrease MAX HP and Decrease Turn Meter Effects.
  19. Strengthen is a buff that decreases the damage inflicted on the recipient. Can decrease the damage taken by 15% or 25%.
  20. Unkillable: The Champion with this buff cannot fall below 1 HP for the entirety of its duration.
  21. Veil: Champions under [Veil] buffs are unable to be targeted by the enemy team. However, Champions under [Veil] can still be hit with AoE attacks or attacks that hit random enemies. Champions will lose their [Veil] buff when they attack an enemy Champion. However, Champions under [Veil] can use Skills that do no damage to the enemy without losing the buff — like buffing their own team, or applying debuffs to the enemy team with Skills that don’t deal damage. If all Champions on a team are under either [Veil] or [Perfect Veil] buffs, it will be ineffective. The enemy team will be able to target each Champion directly as if no [Veil] buffs were present. If only one Champion remains on a team, and they are under either a [Veil] or [Perfect Veil] buff, it will be ineffective. The enemy team will be able to target the Champion directly as if no [Veil] buffs were present. Veil reduces incoming AoE damage by 7.5%.
  22. Taunt is a buff that forces enemies to attack the Taunting Champion. It’s great against single-target nukers in both PvP and PvE, champions with crowd control debuffs on their basic abilities, champions who have Evil Eye mastery, or bosses with powerful single-target attacks. The Taunt buff can be stolen, removed, and decrease its duration. Petrification on the Taunting champions will also remove this buff. However, you cannot spread Taunt debuff and increase its duration. Provoke has priority over Taunt. A provoked champion will target the Champion who placed Provoke on them. If there are 2 champions with a Taunt buff, then the enemy can target either one. However, if one of them have Veiled buff , the one without Veil is targeted first.


  1. Block Active Skills: Prevents the Champion with debuff from using Active Skills other than their Default Skill for the duration of the debuff. Skill Cooldown of the affected Champion refreshes as normal.
  2. Block Buffs: All buffs that are applied to the Champion with this debuff are automatically blocked and have no effect.
  3. Block Heal: Any healing received by the Champion with this debuff is reduced by 50/100%.

  5. Decrease ACC: Reduces the Champion’s Battle ACC by 25/50%.
  6. Decrease ATK: Decreases the Champion’s Battle ATK by 25/50%

  9. Decrease DEF: Decreases the Champion’s Battle DEF by 30/60%
  10. Decrease RES: Decrease RES debuff decreases the Champion’s Battle RES by 25% or 50%. This allows your debuffers to inflict debuff easily with lesser accuracy required.
  11. Decrease SPD: Decreases the Champion’s Battle SPD by 15/30%
  12. Enfeeble: Champions under an Enfeeble debuff can only land weak hits, unless stated otherwise in a skill description.

  14. Freeze: The Champion with this debuff is unable to act X Turns. Cooldowns are not refreshed while [Freeze] is active. The Champion only receives 75% of incoming damage.
  15. Hex: Champions under Hex debuffs take damage whenever their allies do. The damage from Hex debuffs ignores Champions’ DEF. The original targets all take full damage. Champions under Hex debuffs take 2% of AoE damage inflicted on their allies, and 10% of single—target damage inflicted on their allies. Champions under Hex debuffs only take extra damage from direct attacks on their allies, not lasting effects (like buffs or debuffs) – for example, damage from Poison, HP Burn, Bomb debuffs, Reflect Damage buffs, etc.
  16. HP Burn: While the debuff is active and at the start of the affected Champion’s turn, they and all their allies take damage equal to 3% of their respective MAX HP. There can be only one [HP Burn] debuff active of a Champion at a time. However, if multiple Champions on the Team are debuffed with [HP Burn], all of these debuffs work as normal and apply their full damage.
  17. Leech: Any Champion that attacks a Champion with this debuff heals for 18% of inflicted damage.
  18. Petrification: A Champion under a Petrification debuff will have all of their buffs removed, and be unable to take their next turn. When under a Petrification debuff, a Champion will be unable to receive buffs, and is susceptible to receiving more debuffs. Instant effects do not work on Champions under a Petrification debuff, except for the Remove Debuff effect. Finally, while under a Petrification debuff, a Champion will only receive 40% of any incoming damage. However, incoming damage from Bomb debuffs is increased by 300%.
  19. Poison: Damages the target Champion by 2,5/5% of their MAX HP at the beginning of their Turn. This damage is not affected by any other effects and only scales in accordance with the Target’s MAX HP. Block Damage blocks it. If the Target Champion has a Shield, Poison damage will be applied to the Shield first.
  20. Poison Sensitivity is a debuff that increases the damage taken from the Poison debuff by the recipient. Can increase the damage taken by 25% or 50%.
  21. Provoke: The Champion with this debuff can only attack the Champion that applied it for X Turns, using their Default Skill.

Has a 50% chance of removing the Sheep debuff from this Champion after attacking. Whenever a Sheep debuff expires or the Sheep is defeated, the affected Champion will return to battle with 50% HP.
  23. Sleep: The Champion with this debuff is unable to act X Turns. Cooldowns are not refreshed while [Sleep] is active. Continuous Heal and Poison Effect work as normal while the Champion is debuffed with [Sleep], so do any Passive Skills that heal the Champion. Any incoming damage that the Champion receives automatically removes [Sleep].
  24. Seal: There are two versions of this debuff: Seal and Master Seal. The Seal debuff blocks effects from Gear Sets and Masteries, except stat boosts granted by artifacts and Accessories, as well as Masteries that only boost stats like Blade Disciple, Flawless Execution etc. Master Seal is an enhanced version of this debuff, which additionally blocks the effects from Blessings, except stat boosts. The Seal and Master Seal debuffs don’t block effects that were activated before these debuffs were placed.
  25. Smite: Champions under the Smite debuff will be hit by a meteorite when they use an Active Skill. The meteorite inflicts damage equal to 25% of the affected Champion’s MAX HP, and will also inflict damage to all other enemy Champions equal to 5% of their MAX HP.

One need to remove the Life Barrier to inflict damage on the other effects.
  2. Poison Cloud: Poison Cloud buff blocks damage from Poison debuffs. If a Champion got an HP Burn debuff before the Poison Cloud was applied, then the effects of the Poison Cloud won’t work, but the buff itself will not be removed.

    Team Power isn’t a great metric to try and judge opposing teams. Resistance stats tend to inflate it a lot, or if you have Mythical champs it bloats the number, as I think it adds the champ power from both forms. So my guess is you have a high resistance team, which can be a good thing, but probably lack 100% crit rating and dont have good crit damage, and perhaps not enough accuracy to try and strip of buffs to get any damage through.

  2. Ted Clark

    Just curious here…..My “team power” is like 401, and it’s more than a lot of other players…..BUT…….I get destroyed and it’s like my champs are hitting with a wet noodle!!!! What am I doing wrong (Typically)?????

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @Gregory P Bowerman: The characteristics of a Mythical artifact or accessory are they have 4 substats unlocked from the start, and one of the substats is upgraded once. The random pre-upgraded substat is indicated in red. When you attempt to upgrade the Mythical item, there is a chance where it can upgrade on any substat including the red substat.

  4. Ayumilove Post author

    @NurseWrath: I have included Hex and Petrification debuff description along with other new debuffs that was introduced. Thanks!

  5. Overwater

    You are awesome.

  6. Gregory P Bowerman

    trying to figure out mythical artifacts. Some say there is an extra roll, but the total rolls are 4 if you look at the numbers in parentheses. some say there’s already a roll, whatever that means. It’s blue smoke and mirrors or typical Raid mumbo jumbo, which one figures out weeks to months down the line. Any help?

  7. NurseWrath

    Theres Hex & Petrification debuffs.

    Hex currently has 2 in game effects. Firstly it interacts with some champions to enable powerful features or additions to champion skills such as Ruel, who will attack hex targets twice. Secondly, enemies under hex will receive damage based on damage dealt to another enemy. For single target attacks, hex targets receive 10% of the HP Removed (therefore does not work with shield and will not reduce excess damage beyond remaining HP). For Area of Effects attacks, hex targets receive 2% of the HP Removed.

    When placed, removes all buffs from the target Champion and blocks any other buffs from being applied while the debuff is active. Enemies under petrification will skip their turn and their skills cooldown will remain the same whilst the debuff is active. Additionally, damage is reduced by 60% for petrified enemies except for damage dealt by Bombs which are increased by 300%.

    @Awxs: You should focus on your starter heroes as they will help you progress quickly within 2 months as a F2P player as Rare Skill Tomes are easier to get compared to Epic/Legendary Skill Tomes. Focus on equipping your heroes with the right stats first, then once you get more pieces of LifeSteal, then switch to that Set to help you survive in longer battles like Clan Boss.

  9. Awxs

    For context, I just started 2 days ago and have no idea what I am doing so far. In the basic progression section, it says that I should focus on upgrading my main champion. I got a 4* epic (Chonoru) and was wondering if I should keep them or sacrifice them for ranking up my starter. Also, I got 6 6* legendary and epic equipment from the righteous set that already buff speed, so is it ok to keep all of them on or swap one for lifesteal? If I do, every other stat falls so much that I don’t think it is worth it. Thanks in advance.

    Tagoar, I’m my opinion is the best healer out there. Not only does is heal all champions, but revives them too.
    He is always the last champ standing-even amongst the legendarys.
    With a Regeneration and perception set, he is one touch cookie, with a bit of a kick.

    @Heavy: I have updated the Veil and Perfect Veil buff description by adding the reduce damage taken. Thanks!

  12. Heavy \m/

    In Buffs under Veil is the fact missing that Veil also reduces the damage you take by 7.5% and Perfect Veil will reduce the damage you take by 15%.

    Thanks for creating this website. I find it so much easier than the other fancy sites! Keep it up.

    Gasblue: to get three stars in Campaign, you can only use 1 or two champions and cannot have anyone die. If that is what you are doing, then you should submit a support ticket to the game itself. This site has nothing to do with official game management.

    I have a victory five times in Godfrey`s Crossing (Stage 7 Nigtmare) two chanpions,no losses and i allways take only two stars. Can you give me an answear? thanks.

    Thanks for the good work! But i noticed that increase and decrease resistance are missing from the “Raid Shadow Legends Skills” lists of debuff and buff respectively. Will you be adding that soon so we can filter out champions with these skills?

    * Sicia Flametongue
    * Minaya
    * Bloodgorged
    * Black Knight
    * Aleksandr
    * Ninja
    * Scyl of the Drakes

    * Rugnor Goldgleam
    * Golden Reaper
    * Baroth the Blood Soaked
    * Relickeeper

    All of these Champs are Rank 6 and fully upgraded and fully ascended. Any and all feedback, assistance or recommendations are sincerely appreciated. (I’m not much of a gamer, but I have been enjoying Raid)

    @Stephen K: I have fixed the typo “to thin” to “too thin”. Thanks!

  45. Stephen K

    Small Typo…

    Get a 6 Star Champion as early as possible as it will help you greatly in all battles! Do not spread yourself to thin by leveling up multiple champions that you want to use but focus 1 at a time

    It should be “too thin” for perfect English. I’m guessing that that will make the language translator’s job easier as well.

    I’d like to recommend a new section for each of the characters titled F2P lvl 50 gearing. Lifesteal is never the answer for gearing and it brings the advantages of gearing 6 star flat stats vs 5 star percentage gear, plus mastery optimizations for faction wars, hydra, doom tower, etc for all of the level 50’s in rotation (and a lvl 40 paragon in the hip pocket)

    Keep up the good work!

    (Duplicating the character pages for level 50’s gives all of the stats/stars/materies a fresh balance for heavy def/hp builds without wm/gs procs,etc)

    Is there a description of the buff spread effect and which if any champs have skill with this effect? I know Hydra Head of mischief has a buff spreading skill but can’t find a list for this buff that will point me in the direction of any champs that have this buff. Plenty of them have spread debuffs but do any have spread buffs?

  51. NobleStiff120

    oh almost forgot: dont forget to tell them to make the gears exchangeable in sparring pit from dressing room and free since its for testing, not permanent.

  52. NobleStiff120

    How do you feel about lobbying devs for an idea of mine for sparring pit? I think we would all enjoy and become addicted to a feature in the pit that allows us to pit our own champions against each other solo or in teams really just to test them and maybe for some humble exp or other rewards that don’t cost energy, silver, or attempts…or even just for no rewards just an extra thing to do. What do you think?

    Hello, Ayumi.

    Thanks for creating and maintaining such a great resource for “Raid: Shadow Legends” (and also “Awaken Chaos Era” which I am also playing). With that in mind, here are 2 minor corrections I’ve noticed:

    Correction needed on this page:

    1. “Block Review” should be “Block Revive”

    Other corrections needed in “Storyline” for “Vlad the Nightborn” and “Konstantin the Dayborn”:

    1. First sentence (for both) should read “Brothers born to a mortal woman and a vampire father, Vlad the Nightborn and Konstantin the Dayborn came into the world on opposing sides of the Light.”

    Chris Babic,
    Yes, leveling up 1 star to 2, 2 to 3,etc. Is normal.
    I do this almost daily on Campaign 12-3 brutal. Select a champ that can be the turn by themself. I using Kael at 60 with all the masteries.
    Leave 3 slots empty, open multiplay, open the queue, and select 20 food.
    Level 4,5, and 6 stars will take more than the 30-40 multiplays, so you want to do those in the dungeons, 1 or 2 at a time.

  63. Chris Babic

    I know this seems like a simple question but could you explain the process of using 1 star champs to up level 4 and 5 star champs (I believe the term is food) and which champs to keep or use as food. Thanks

    Hi, this is my favorite site for raid, but it is missing one crucial thing to put it over the top. In the skill description, buffs, debuffs, auras, etc that already have a page should be linked directly so that when we click it, we can see all of the champs that have that ability without scrolling to the side or bottom, which is really useful for mobile. Thanks for the work and good luck with your pulls.

    One of the Clan Challenges is to get a Rare shield in a Campaign battle. Is there any way to do that. I’ve been trying for 3 days straight – almost 500 battles in every castle; tried mostly stage 3, but it wasn’t working so sometimes I tried stage 7. I tried on Nightmare for the most part, but dozens of battles on Brutal and Hard didn’t work either…

    For Best Healer, I think you’re missing Skytouched Shaman on that list. She gets HUGE heals going for every fight I put her into and keeps overhealing my team every time she’s up.

    @Anthony: You will need to farm Dragon’s Lair 20 dungeons until you get pieces of gears that have Speed substats. Then, you will need to upgrade those gear and pray it will upgrade the Speed substat. Once you have sufficient gears in your arsenal, you could then mix and match equipment to get the correct speed and the best stats that your champion needs. I could prepare a champion equipment guide that explains this in detail but it would take some time for me to make it since I’m busy with work as well.

    Do Divine sets stack the 15% shield? Meaning do you get a 30% shield for 2 sets and a 45% shield for 3 sets? I have read elsewhere online that only the base stat portion (Atk, Def, Speed, CR) stacks, and the shield is 15% no matter how many sets you are wearing.

    Please add these details to the descriptions above.

  117. EstCst420

    Good to see you back.

  118. Mikhail

    I spent some time thinking about these medal progress missions. You need a LOT of medals. However, there are some things you gotta remember so you can farm them as a low-skill, not very well armed and equipped player.

    The first way to farm is to bounce between the two tiers: if you are farming bronze medals, between bronze-4 and silver-1. The reason for this bouncing (once you get to next tier, lose and return to previous) is twofold:
    – You get free opponent resets
    – You return to a tier at which you are overpowered and have a higher chance of winning.
    This consumes your tokens rapidly, but does generate some medals. You can farm either bronze+silver or silver+gold.
    (one could argue that just playing in higher tier is more efficient, but it’s not always the case; you can end up in a tier where your chances of winning are slim).

    The second and intended method of QUICKLY amassing large amounts of medals is using up your gems. The trick is that MANY players put up “free wins”, i.e. defense teams in their tier whose sole purpose is to lose so that others can win these fights. Yes, they are not stupid, they do it on purpose. What little rating they lose, they just make back in a few fights once they are in a lower tier.

    If you need a lot of medals, you need them fast, and you have gems to spare (we are talking about 5 gems per 2 medals), you can do this. Reset (or wait) to find these weaker teams. Don’t even bother trying to kill anything you are not sure you can win: look for weaker teams. On average, each opponent reset will contain 0 to 2 weak teams whose only purpose is to feed others.

    Also, do not make a mistake and don’t try to take on teams you know are too strong for you. After a while, I can say that as an inexperienced player you can ignore (unless you are VERY good, i.e. full 60 with good synergies) the following enemy teams:
    – Any team with a Miscreated Monster of 60 is very hard to take down with brute force alone.
    – A team with a Kael of 60 and Diabolist/Spirithost/High Khatun/Apothecary (even if they are low level!) will likely go first and obliterate your team before you can even make a move.
    – A team of two Kaels/Athels hits like a truck, but you do have a chance if you know you can go first (stack speed and have a speed boosting champion).
    – Sinesha is a sign of a player who knows exactly what they are doing. Avoid such teams even if she is 50.
    – A team with Lyssandra, Arbiter or Zavia. While these champions are not an “always win” card, the fact that the enemy player has obtained them in the first place means they are doing way better in this game than you are. Even if the enemy team is not full, do not rush happily into such a fight. There is a good chance that one champion will be enough to kill you.

  119. MrSrgsnowman

    @Ayumilove How did you get the damage multipliers for legendary creatures? Is there a way to get it for some epics that are relevant? (Skullcrown, Tayrel, etc).

  120. Mikhail

    Is it just me, or are the Great Hall bonus missions harder than all others combined?

    Can anyone link exactly how many medals you win per fight on each tier? Because at section 2, where you are supposed to be in Silver league, you win like 2 medals per fight, while for a tier 4 bonus, you need… what was it, over 1000?

  121. Hairstyles

    I precisely had to say thanks yet again. I’m not certain the things I could possibly have followed without the type of strategies discussed by you concerning that field. It previously was the depressing problem in my circumstances, nevertheless discovering the very skilled strategy you processed it forced me to cry for fulfillment. Extremely happy for the help and even believe you know what a powerful job you are undertaking training people all through a site. I am certain you haven’t got to know all of us.

  122. J Sun

    Is there a list of rewards for campaign missions anywhere?

  123. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jesse MacKenna: Faction Wars has a daily limit/cap on the keys, which is 12. These keys will be replenish every day (24 hours). You can get 6 additional keys by completing the Advance Quests, which is participating in 5 Tag Team Arena Battle (regardless of win/lose). Once you are able to clear a stage in Faction War, you can proceed to the higher difficulty stage until you hit a wall where your champions aren’t strong enough. Then, you can slowly farm at the stage where your team is capable of while you strengthen the champions in that Faction (e.g. upgrade Artifact, rank champion, ascend champion, upgrading skill, etc).

  124. Jesse MacKenna

    How do you get past the 12 keys to battle on in Faction Wars? Once I run out of keys there is no way to proceed that I know and yes I’m almost a new player. Faction Wars how to get to 20 and 21 or.

  125. SeekerBS

    I have two questions about the sets or in particular their relation to buffs masteries:

    If a spell crits and inflict bonus from Warmaster or giant slayer masteries, in the case of the normal CB about 2.4 million points of damage not counting reductions life defence or something else will that damage be multiplied by the crit damage or remain the same?

    If weaken debuff is applied, will that increase damage from the above masteries or poison/hp burn?

  126. Desc440

    There are a few Progress Missions that are not what is listed here. Maybe Plarium updated them since last you edited this?

    @Dany: Arbiter is still viable for late game such as Arena Platinum Tier (both Classic Arena and Tag Team Arena). Also, Arbiter is used for Dungeon Speed Run for F2P and low spender players. For instance, I used to do Ice Golem about 10 minutes per run, and after gearing all my champions really well, it drops to around 5 minutes. With Arbiter, she can boost your Champion’s Turn Meter, apply Increase Attack buff so all your allies deals 50% extra damage especially Attack Role champions, apply Weaken debuff for more damage to inflicted to the enemies and finally Revive any fallen allies. With Arbiter, all my dungeon runs are below 2 minutes amd 30 seconds for Spider, Ice Golem, Fire Knight and Dragon’s Lair.

  132. Dany

    Quck question if I may. Once you are able to achieve all of that, do you still need Arbiter??

  133. Tristin Cross

    I really enjoy the backstory elements on some of the champion guide pages. I wanted to know if Ayumilove created them.

    How come there is no decrease debuff duration listed in the instant skill list? I know Valerie is one character with that effect listed on her A2, for example.

    I wish I had found this website sooner! This is the most detailed and comprehensive guide I have found online for this game and I used it almost every day. I advise new Raid players to checkout this online resource all the time. Thank you for making it and for keeping it up to date. I know it takes some time to update and it is appreciated : )

    There is only one Upgrade a Great Hall Bonus to Level 10, the one before Reach Gold IV in Classic Arena doesn’t actually exist, the one after it (10y) does.

  142. Galloglas_Kilt

    Hi Ayumi, I tried looking through the comments here but there are SO MANY so if this question has already been asked and answered I apologize.

    I am wondering if there are any artifact sets or levels that I should just sell? I would say I am probably getting close to reaching mid-game (not strong enough for the lvl20 dungeons but working my way there) so I have amassed a LOT of artifacts that I never seem to use from dungeon runs. I already sell basically everything I get from running the Campaign as they seem to be trash pieces, but all of the Blue/Purple/Golds that I have which are 4-5 star are sitting in my inventory and it seems there are some sets, such as Destroy, Frenzy, Immunity etc. that I just have not found a use for yet. Are they worth holding on to?

    Thanks in advance.

    How many level 10 Great Hall Bonuses are required for Arbiter? One or two? These lines confuse me. What is 10y? Is it a second level 10, a line duplicated by mistake or something different?

    Arena Upgrade a Great Hall Bonus to Level 10 Reward: 250 Energy, 500K Silver
    Arena Reach Gold IV in Classic Arena Reward: 150 Gems
    Arena Upgrade a Great Hall Bonus to Level 10y Reward: 250 Energy, 500K Silver

  148. Willy

    The missing mission in part 3 after Reach Silver III in Arena is:

    Campaign Clear Stage 7 of the Catacombs of Narbuk on Brutal
    Reward: 50K Silver, 15 Gems

    Also, there is an F missing in the one under it. 😉

    Is there a way to post or send screenshots of my Champions to get opinions on which to keep and which to sacrifice?

  150. Ernest

    Thank you. and won’t be a problem with the updates. just learning what needs are where will probably let me see the updates as you do them. it is the basic info that i use at the moment anyway. besides being on the phone and away from computer need a way to quickly look it up without switching apps on phone all the time.
    again thank you.

  151. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ernest: I think you could save the webpage to your computer for offline viewing though. In addition, the ones that you save into your hard disk may not be updated as I’ll be updating them once awhile depending on the game updates.

  152. Ayumilove Post author

    @waxed crack: I could not view the previous Progress Missions after completing them to obtain Arbiter. Therefore, I’ll not be able to update the Progress Missions unless you could provide me the details of the progress missions that is not included in the list above (details such as the one shown in the guide).

  153. waxed crack

    noticing the progress missions aren’t accurate at 2/4 because that’s the part i’m currently focusing on. probably changed quite a bit since that part of the guide was made. (unless mobile is different somehow?)
    other than that keep up the good work!
    always super helpful website!

  154. Ernest

    Hey just started playing a couple of months ago, and searched for guide type stuff and found yours. am wondering if i can put it into a file for myself when i am not near a computer so i have a hard copy of it. yes i am old school, hard copy. but it works for me.

    and yes this guide you provide for raid is awesome, has helped me at least when i get home.

  155. PDP

    Thank you, great info.

  156. Ayumilove Post author

    @PDP: Based on your input, your current Clan Boss team consist of:
    1. Duchess Lilitus (Veil, Block Debuff, Heal, Revive, Increase Attack)
    2. Arcanist (Healer)
    3. Kael (Poisoner)
    4. Diabolist (Speed Buffer, Increase Turn Meter)
    5. Frozen Banshee (Poisoner)

    And you have received 2 new champions: Dracomoprh and Lord Champfort.

    Based from these input, I would restructure your new Clan Boss team as such:
    1. Dracomorph (Decrease Attack, Decrease Defense, Poisoner)
    2. Duchess Lilitu (Revive, Heal, Block Debuff, Increase Attack)
    3. Arcanist (Healer)
    4. Diabolist (Speed Buffer, Increase Turn Meter)
    5. Kael (Poisoner)

    To see an increase boost of Clan Boss damage, you will need to get both Dracomorph and Diabolist to Level 60 with Warmaster, and equip them with Lifesteal to sustain longer in battle, in case Arcanist misses her Heal. Once all of your team has Lifesteal gear, replace Arcanist with someone who can provide Shield, Counter Attack or Ally Protection buff to sustain in battle longer and to increase the amount of damage. If you can’t 1 use 1 Key to get the Grandmaster Chest in Brutal Clan Boss (21,694K damage), it means your champions in the Clan Boss team does not have all Warmaster/Giant Slayer, the gears are not Level 16 (fully maxed) and the champion is not fully optimized (lack of skill tomes).

    My Speed Clan Boss team (using Kreela Witch Arm) does 48M damage in 1 Key for Brutal Clan Boss with all Champions have full masteries (Tier 6 Offense Warmaster/Giant Slayer), all equipments are Level 16 (basic equipment and accessories) and skills are all maxed. Counter Attack team will do about 45~60M damage with the same setup for Brutal Clan Boss too.

  157. Ayumilove Post author

    @poorii: Thenasil A2 Skill “Oaked Skin” has a base heal of 25% of his MAX HP. Once this skill is maxed, he will get a additional heal of 20% multiplied against the base heal. The total heal will be 30% (25% base heal multiply by 120% gives the total heal).

  158. Ayumilove Post author

    @Confused: I have added German language into the Translate drop down box.

  159. PDP

    Hoping to get a little help. Been playing a couple months, not slot of champs yet, but I just pulled Dracomorph & lord champfort yesterday. I’m going to use them and redo my CB team once they are viable. Lord champfort is only 1 I have with atk down. My current team is 3 – 60’s, Kael, Duchess Lilitu & Arcanist. 2 -50’s frozen banshee & diabolist. Everyone but Duchess is fully booked. The 3 have warmaster. I’m pulling 8m or so dmg on average on Brutal CB.

    My question is what will I put with Draco, Lord & Arcanist? Arcanist is my best healer. The only other healer worth beans is Warpriest unbooked. So currently I need her as healer. I don’t have any shield, counterattack or increase def champions worth my time really. I have athel, coldheart, bulwark, diabolist, frozen banshee. I’ll have 8 debuffs just between Lord & Draco so I don’t think Frozen Banshee is viable on this team. Kael I’m moving to other areas other than CB. I was thinking Coldheart or Athel with diabolist(don’t quite got the gear to make up for her speed increase)
    Or I can do Athel & Coldheart for a few less but more dmg hitting. Or should I use a crappy shield/increase def champ just for a bit more sustain with either Athel or Coldheart?

    Note: I don’t do near 8m with my current CB team without diabolist…

    Also, I see you suggest life steal gear almost always, but if not having enough good life steal gear, what other sets you recommend with the team you think I should roll with?

    Wow, I forgot all about Duchess Lilitu. My new CB team would be Draco, Lord, Duchess, Arcanist. I need 1 to go with them. I was thinking Coldheart, but a clan member said no. Athel is redundant with weaken. Frozen banshee would have room for 1 poison after her poison sensitivity. Thank you and sorry for some missed info in first post.

  160. Confused

    Is there near Future German Translate?

  161. James

    A suggestion for the site that might be useful for users: It might be nice to search for recommended champs based on gear set. If I have a well statted taunting or curing set for example I have no idea what champ would make use of that, and looking up each champ and checking is not really viable. Thanks for the site!

  162. Krath_Negral

    just started over a month ago and wanted to know certain things that are here. a bit cumbersome but well worth the click through to exactly what you need. been using this the last week and have gone up rather quickly because of it since.

    thank you for having this available to peruse in between sleep and gaming.

  163. Raistlin_BAT

    Mad props to this site, I’m at about 160 days into the game and reference it constantly. A couple things to consider for your mission list. I think someone else mentioned it but not sure you understood the request. Basically on the missions can you indicate in your guide whether the mission will count retroactively or not? I.e. for missions like getting a great hall bonus to x it will give you credit if you have already gotten a great hall bonus to x but for missions like ascending a spirit champ to level 6 it will not. I know for me i ascended several champs just prior to getting to those missions and had I know beforehand I would have waited. Secondly, can you change the wording on the Clan boss missions of dealing x damage within 24 hours to dealing x damage prior to reset? I burned a couple keys the night before thinking I had the next day to get another key in to finish the mission and the damage reset to 0 the following morning.
    Thanks Bro and keep up the great work.

    @Annihilus: You are F2P (Free to Play) player, you will need to amass these Mystery Shards as they can be used to gain points during these event/tournament to acquire a specific reward that is used for the Champion Fusion (example: Champion Fragments). If you are P2W (Pay to Win) Player, you can spend money by purchasing those Ancient Shards or Void Shards or Sacred Shards to get these points fairly easily without going through the hassle buying Mystery Shards from the Market every day.

  177. Ayumilove Post author

    @Colin: If you are just starting out, I would recommend just using them first because if you get good Rare champions early on, it will help boost your game progression very quickly. Once you have the core champions that you can rely to take on all dungeons and Arena, then its the time to save up on Ancient Shards and Mystery Shards for the events. The Ancient Shards would be use only during Double Ancient Summoning Boost where you have double the chance to get an Epic or Legendary Champion. If your game account is late game where you have all the necessary champions to perform speed run and just missing essential champion to optimize the speed run or you just want to complete your champion index, then I would recommend using those Ancient Shards during the 10X Summoning Event to have a higher chance to get/snipe the champion that the game is offering. Mystery Shards keep saving them up for the Event/Tournament and buy the Common/Uncommon champion for fodder. For Void Shard and Sacred Shard, apply the same strategy as Ancient Shard.

  178. Colin

    @ayumilove I was wondering if I should save my ancient shards for the champion chase from the start or just my mystery shards.

  179. Dave

    If you get the mastery fearsome presence, and your champ has both an artifact set that stuns and a skill that stuns, do you get the bonus to both the skill and the set? I am using Scyl of the Drakes and i am curious about the utility of a stun set

  180. Drew

    The one thing that I think has changed is once you get your core 5 it no longer only takes 2 months to get through in game content. Arena is so terrible those progress missions now take weeks to months just for the silver missions I can’t imagine how long gold is going to take. Upgrading the great hall takes forever when you have 5 maxed champs with all masteries complete and you can’t consistently make it out of Silver 1. It wants you to upgrade 2 great hall skills to silver(at least 800 silver). Try doing that 1 piece of silver at a time. Then the next challenge is to ascend a champion to 5 stars, beat a campaign mission on hard,unlock a tier 3 mastery or get 1.5MM on a the Demon Lord. All things I have done months ago. I can get 13+MM on the Demon Lord. It just shows how out of wack Arena is and it is killing the game for a lot of people.

  181. Bushra

    @Ayumilove thank you for that information did not know about those. was lucky to get a 90%discount i think it was on a 3void 500 gem and silver pack. will keep an eye open for those offers 🙂 they seem to help a lot progressing in the game.

  183. Ayumilove Post author

    @Avaraxius: The best offer packs to spend on is the $10 for 2150 Gems, Bonus Offer Packs and specific special Holiday Events (e.g. Christmas or Black Friday) for very low spender (excluding the On my F2P account, I have seen Bonus Offer Packs selling Legendary Skill Tomes and Epic Skill Tomes at a price 5 times lower than the one sold in the shop. 1 Legendary Skill Tome = 5 USD, 1 Epic Skill Tome = 2 USD. Same applies to Void Shards and Ancient Shards too.

    I Recently discovered Raid again so had one on my mobile had about 25k+ energy on it seems i logged in often to grab the extras now burning it up, So made a new fresh account that i wont do the same mistakes that i did with my first account, i am something between a Amoeba &
    Mino ^^.

    So thanx for the great helpful website should have searched it earlier 🙂 , any tips for spending gems, mostly keep them till i can spend for a “small shard packs”.

    @Crypto kBone: It’s actually called “Sky Peak”. It’s a locked/hidden dungeon planned for future content (e.g. 100 level tower to farm resources). Based from my research, I believe there is content in development for this dungeon. However, there are no news about it being released in any specific update as it’s been locked/hidden since 2018. More details will be available once Plarium Raid Shadow Legends released some news publily.

  186. Ayumilove Post author

    @GideonEu: Lore of Steel works on all basic sets and not with sets that has unique effects like Lifesteal, Stun, Sleep, Provoke/Taunt, Poison, etc. Lore of Steel boost significantly for stats that aren’t percentage (e.g. Accuracy Set gains the most benefit out of Lore of Steel compared to Speed Set). However, if you are using this champion in Arena, every bit of Speed stat matters, so that is where Lore of Steel comes in place.

  187. GideonEu

    Just having abit of a heated discussion with a clan mate, he said that lore is steel the mastery dosnt work with the speed or lifesteal sets, lifesteal makes sense cause it isn’t increasing a base stat but he says that cause the speed set dosnt have 15% bonus it dosnt give the buff, could you elaborate if this is the case?

  188. Crypto kBone

    What is the Sky Peek?

  189. Ayumilove Post author

    @VendettaX: For Campaign boss runs, I completed all of them (Normal, Hard and Brutal) using the given champions. Example, Kael/Athel/Elhain (Attacker) paired with Warpriest (Healer) to tackle against Bosses that are Magic (Blue) or Spirit (Green). For Force, I use Relickeeper (Fusion Champion) or Jizoh with Warpriest (Healer). All of the attacker champions are fitted with Lifesteal Set.

  199. VendettaX

    Hi Ayumilove, love your guides. Id be lost without them. That being said; i dont know if this was asked in the comments or you even have one listed here( ive checked and couldnt find one). But is there any way you can make a list of strategies or best champion rankings for Campaign Bosses(like you do for dungeons and such)? I know its a lot of work, but could be helpful.

  200. Ayumilove Post author

    @Byron: If you want to focus building up your Clan Boss team, I would go with Diabolist and Occult Brawler, followed by Skullcrusher. If you want to focus on Arena, I would go with Seeker and Diabolist. If you want to focus on Dungeons, I would go with Miscreated Monster and Diabolist. Diabolist is a versatile champion. In my F2P Account, I used her extensively (before Apothecary and High Khatun were available) for a long time. You won’t go wrong with leveling up Diabolist to Level 60. She will help you everywhere and she is easily to skill up as you can get multiple duplicate champions of her in Campaign 12-3 Brutal.

    The key to fast game progression is to get a Speed Champion (e.g. Diabolist) and a carrier Tanky Champion (e.g. Miscreated Monster). With Miscreated Monster, he can pair with Kael to 3 Star almost all stages in Campaign including Nightmare Campaign mode (but requires very good gear on them too). With Diabolist (Speed Champion), she boosts everyone overall speed so they can take more turns then the enemies to attack and cast their skills.

  201. Byron

    Hello Ayumi, love the site and thank you for all the hard work you put in to make it for us. I have a question about what champions I should focus on for dungeons to progress further. I am fairly new to the game and just got Kael to lvl 60. Some of the other champions I have obtained are below:

    Occult Brawler
    Miscreated Monster

    I appreciate any advice and wisdom you will give me.

  202. Sean Beebe

    Thank you for the response to my question on accessories flat vs percentage main stats. I saw in the guide where it shows that after I asked. I apologize but I am still curious about gear gauntlets, chest plate, and boots. Are RES and ACC always going to be a flat number? I never seem to see these two with a % after the number. I don’t usually keep any flat main stat gear of these 3 types but am still wondering about ACC and RES main stats though and your guide does show them as flat stats but it also, on those 3 types of gear shows crit rate and crit damage as being flat. So I’m confused.

  203. Floppy

    Hi Ayumilove, Thanks a lot for your site, it’s very helpful!
    I am trying to farm the campaign champs (spirithost and then executioner and heiress for fusion).

    Is there a higher chance to get them in brutal than normal? Was wondering as normal cost half the energy which means two times more run/chances to get them (putting xp and silver aside).

    Any idea or advice ?

  204. Chad A. Clayton

    I agree, but instead of a list it would be far more user friendly if it were a graph. albeit a graph seperated by columns that you can select individually, in order to see whatever champs are ranked highest in the base stat that you selected…. standard graph i guess.

    ayumilove, thank you for all the effort and hard work you put into this site! it definately cannot be easy; this is my #1 go to site for anything raid. keep up the fantastic work! im hoping you get more donations for your effots!

  205. MtgJedi

    I think a great addition to the site would be a sorted list of champions by their base stats. So all champions in order based on their hp on one list and by speed on another list, etc.

    Thanks so much for an amazing resource the whole community uses.

  206. Ayumilove Post author

    @Sean Beebe: Primary stats for Accessories and Equipment (Weapon, Helmet, Shield) are all Flat stats. Check out the guide in the “RAID SHADOW LEGENDS EQUIPMENT GUIDE” section to see what are the available stats that are percentages (indicated with % icon) and which stats are flat (indicated with plus + icon) for the equipment primary stats and substats.

  207. Sean Beebe

    Hey, been loving your site for about a month now ever since I heard about it from Salt (love his channel and Ash’s). I was just wondering, I keep seeing ACC and RES as flat stats and the main stat for accessories as flat stats, are these all only flat stats or can they also be percentage stats? I’m trying to figure out what to keep and what to sell from my inventory.

  211. Ayumilove Post author

    @Eric: To build Great Hall Mastery effectively is to get sufficient Accuracy, followed by Critical Damage, Defense, HP, Attack and Resist. Get all of it to Level 6. However, only work on the Affinity that you have champion that can benefit it. For example, if your champion roster are mainly Force and Magic Affinity, then invest/distribute those earned Arena medals to those affinities instead of doing for all Affinities (Void, Spirit, Magic and Force). This will help you progress much faster in-game as the stat boost from Great Hall will help you significantly as in you do not need to rely on gear much in early-mid game.

    Where does one start choosing the right attributes for your in the great hall

  213. DemiGoddess

    First, this is an awesome site and the info is a great help for all players alike. However, I have to put in a couple of suggestions…
    1) Under Starter Champs, it should read: Galek (Clan Boss/Campaign Farmer/AoE Attacker) as well. Even though he is not highly recommended, he actually is a pretty good Starter. I chose Elhain as my 1st Starter, on my 2nd account, I chose Athel, my 3rd starter was Galek, and I use Kael in my 1st & 2nd accounts solid as well, so I know how they all perform.
    2) Under 1* & 2* Keepers/All-Purposer Attackers, you should have also included Death Hound (Common), who has a suprising kit of Rare quality skills: (A1) Attack one enemy. Ignores [Shield] & [Block Damage] Buffs. If critical, ignores enemy DEF. (A2) Attack one enemy. Places a 5% [Poison] for 2 turns. I just thought if no one ever mentioned these things before, I might as well…thank you!

Mostly Uncommon and Common champions are fodders except Outlaw Monk and Armiger.

  219. Eric

    What champions would you use for food / farming

  220. Eric

    Is ayumilove in book format for raid shadows legends and if so where can I get a copy

  221. gerovit

    In part III progress mission “upgrade 2 chapmions to level 60” is this retroactive?

  222. Lesa Bird

    Your Instant Self Heal page is broken. I’d love to review it when you get a chance to fix it. Thank you for your efforts in creating this website. I use it regularly. <3

  223. WileyMan

    @Amol: Farm your artifacts in the Dungeons. By the time you can clear Nightmare stages, you should be into the mid-teens for Dungeon levels. That is where you will get better gear.

  224. Corin Black

    I have a champ with 119% total crit, but he still consistently fails to crit on weak hits, despite what the chart says. Might want to check that and update.

  225. Nick P

    You should throw a list of all the Champions who Transfer Debuff on here.

  226. Amol

    Any pointers on farming 6* artifacts. I am only till Felwin’s Gate in Nightmare and till there as well I only got 3 6* artifacts dispite playing for around 30 times

  227. Chris Peacock

    Hi there, I am stuck on Artifact Mission 39, I have equipped an ATK champion with gauntlets, chest and boots with ATK% as their primary stat but it says 2\3 and I have tried everything and cannot complete it !!! Thank you Chris

  228. Eleyeah

    everyone should be forced to read this before they can play these games:)

  229. Joel Morris

    I am looking for a tier list of Attack champions. Can anyone help me find one please?!

  230. denn

    Thank you so much for your guides! I was wondering are you were going to do a faction war champ ranking?

  231. JRP160058

    @KillaCam it costs 800 gems to get all scrolls for your champion. Does not matter how many scrolls you had previously.

  232. Christian

    @TiagoTitan…do you mean “you” or really a friend? If you purchase the scrolls for 800 gems you will get all the mastery scrolls, just won’t be able to apply the 6* scrolls until his or your Kael is 6*

  233. KillaCam

    If you already have a few masteries chosen, does it still cost 800 gems to get all the rest of the scrolls for a champion?

  234. virgil

    flinger? how about him? food or not?

  235. TiagoTitan

    Hi, I have a question regarding minotaur masteries scrolls:
    A friend of mine wants to buy the scrolls with 800 gems for his level 50 Kael. So his Kael is not yet 6stars, will he still get all masteries scrolls (basic, advanced and divine) or only basic and advanced, loosing all divine?
    Thenks for answering

  236. dylan

    is there a suggested mastery set up for specific champs anywhere on here

  237. Angel

    @Yo_Dexxxter, thanks for the comment, I’m a F2P, regarding the Skullsworns farming, I did check other forums and threads but the advice offered contradicted what I was seeing, in this regard I somewhat agree with what you stated about the runs. I used just over 500 energy on brutal and got only 2, but I did the same on Hard and got 8. I’ve in total spent nearly 2000 energy over a week and gathered all 16. And today have fused my first legendary Skull Lord Var-Gall. It was not an easy process and I’ve been playing for 114 days and I’m currently at level 58.

  238. WileyMan

    Lore of Steel Follow-up from below. I am about to select some Tier 4 Masteries, so I wanted to understand how it works now with the recent patch discussed below by ShalokShalom. I started a forum thread at Plarium:

    A Forum Moderator claims that the current Lore of Steel modifies all 2-Piece sets, which is not how it is described in-game or on this site. I do not want to waste 150 Gems on a reset if it does not modify Speed sets. Can anyone confirm how this works from personal experience?

  239. JerBinks

    Hi, thanks for this wodnerful website !

    I think the progress missions have changed because I’m stuck at “Reach Silver I in Arena” and I can’t find it on the liste here.

  240. CommanderAzure

    On the Progress mission, can you add on each one whether it is retroactive?

  241. Ayumilove Post author

    @BRICOUT: For this Progress Mission, it must be active. Once you reach to this mission, then only start ascending your Spirit Champions to Level 6 (Purple Star). If you have existing Spirit Champion that have made to Level 6 Ascension before reaching to this Progress Mission, it will not count.

  242. BRICOUT

    Hello Ayumilove
    Can you help me?
    for the mission ” Ascend a Spirit Champion to Level 6 of Ascension”
    I already have 2 spirit champions to Level 6 of Ascension but the mission is not a success…
    why? Do I need to make another spirit champion to level 6 ?

  243. Kraftyo

    Hello Ayumilove, first of all as a new player I’d like to say thanks. Your guides are awesome.
    One thing that I’m frankly suprised isnt a thing yet in this game is a skill order tree. Like 4 slots that you can put your skills in and they always will be used in that order if on auto. I wanted to post my idea on here because you have a pretty big following and it would be a great ease of life buff.. but you may have some more pull with devs then some nub like me =b Thanks again and hopefully you can pass this on to someone.

  244. Hugo Alves

    Hey Ayumilove, I didn’t see your updates at twitter or Maplestory content recently. I was thinking if is everything ok with you? Long time I follow your work here (Maplestory) and twitter 🙂

  245. Confusedone

    Hello, first thank you so much for all your hard work in keeping with your site. I’ve never played this type of game before. Friend got me started and we reference your site frequently.
    Being new, I understand the diff bet leg, epic, rare, etc but would/have you ever put together a list of champs in order of usefulness regardless of tier? Sometimes I can’t decide which one to rank first as I may have several defense, healers, etc.. Thus far, Kael seems to be my strongest even against the one legendary but I’m also not versed in gearing well. My friend keeps telling me not to use 4 piece sets? I don’t get why.

  246. Eric


    I’m using this site a lot for it’s usefull and easy to access information!
    Is there a reason to not display Champion Ranking for Arcane Keep?


  247. WileyMan

    @Moriar: The best way to spend $10/month is on the Daily Gem Pack. It’s over 2000 Gems for $10. There is nothing more cost effective.

  248. WileyMan

    @Moriar. With a budget of $10-$15 per month, the most important thing for you to purchase is the Daily Gem Pack. There is simply no better way to spend $10 per month on RSL.

  249. Moriar

    Strange i just posted a comment but it disappeared.
    My question basically was: as a very new player, with a budget of around 10$ a month for this game, what should i buy as first “deal” ? I’ve read that after you buy the first time, the game doesn’t offe anymore such juicy deals!
    Also a question regarding this hero that many people talk about, Skullsworms: I just dropped him on my 5th run in the sewers, is it just a big hit of luck?

  250. Moriar

    Hello there, very nice guide, thank you so much.
    I will follow it thoroughly , I have only one simple question for now:
    I can afford to spend on this game, as I like it, 10-15 $ a month.
    I read somewhere that after the first purchase, the offer that the game propose you are not that good, so we should be very careful in what we decide to buy as first purchase: what do you recommend to buy as a beginner? there are many packs right now spamming on my screen, but in general what should I look for?
    Energy deals? Shard deals? Items deals?

  251. Yo_Dexxxter

    Farming for SkullSworns is pointless unless your account has spent large amount of money. This “amount spent” marker also contributes to support tickets being answered by an actual person. (This topic has been discussed on Reggit & Discord forums/threads) I’ve done 300+ runs for SkullSworns & have received 2. I’ve played Raid for approx 7 months & have 2 Legendary Champs. 2 from Battle Pass event & 1 from an ancient shard. Ayumilove is an absolutely awesome source of helpful guides for RSL. Too bad the game won’t respect it’s fanbase.

  252. Frank

    As always Ayumi, quality stuffs. You are my Advancement Instructor from MS to Raids.
    Much love from Vietnam

  253. Angel

    Hi Ayumi,

    Love the site, apology if I’ve missed it but are you able to confirm the best way to farm champions level 3 champions? (Farming for Skullsworn) Other than XP, coin and higher gear does farming on Normal, hard, brutal or even nightmare have any better drop rates? And is it better to stick to stage 6 and replay or play through tall the stages?

    Many thanks


  254. Ben

    Rougly how much does it cost to upgrade your vault all the way?

  255. Miso

    Hello ! Thanks a lot for all the info.
    I’m a beginner and i struggle finding out which hero to keep/xp and which to use as food (for campaign progression, very early game).
    Could you explain why Death Hound is S – uncommon whereas it’s not in the “worth keeping” in this guide please ?

  256. John

    Great info! Appriciate the hard work and time put into this. Thanks a million!

  257. ash

    the mission guide seems to be wrong, it doesn’t tally with my missions for stage 3

  258. Kayla Tanksley

    How come there no child guide in the game

  259. Ayumilove Post author

    @Shuaimi: You can inflict Stun/Freeze/Sleep debuff on her so she doesn’t take her turn to attack with Crack Armor. You could also buff your champions with Block Debuff to avoid getting Decrease Defense from her Crack Armor skill.

    How to counter Zagalas crack armour skill pls

  261. Cookie

    Is there any where besides the fire knight to get Regeneration sets?

  262. Dan Trumphour

    Looks like they changed lore of steel. I believe you are describing it incorrect. But they way it has changed it looks correct. Used to be only on basic sets. (Life, speed, acc, etc) now it should boost divine sets bonuses as well.

  263. ContinuousImprovement

    There are a lot of missing progress missions in part 2? The current list only shows the last 38 of the 75 missions.

  264. MaxBT

    Could you please add an advice to Masteries part, that player should pay 800 gems for Masteries instead of wasting time fighting Minotaur. I just did the math base on lvl 60, fighting last stage 15th, best luck cost 13.14 energy potions (assume we use 0.86 energy potion for other task), worse luck cost 23.58 energy potions; average costs 18.36 energy potions ~ 735 gems, player do not save much gems but waste too much time because cost 122 – 219 battles ~ about 4 – 10 hours playing.

  265. Ayumilove Post author

    @Khafka: Currently there is a bug reported that the Potion requirement is buggy and not yet fixed.

  266. Ayumilove Post author

    @Nico: Currently I do not have the drop rate for those items that you have mentioned. It is said that higher difficulty campaign has higher success rate of dropping those Rare champions.

  267. Ayumilove Post author

    @ShalokShalom: Could you please point me to the official Plarium website that has this patch details?

  268. Ayumilove Post author

    @Azul: It’s not an issue equipping Epic Artifacts on Rare champion if they could help you progress in-game much faster, especially Early-Mid-Late game champion such as Kael.

  269. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hapi: To perform Ascension for a champion, you will need to collect Potions from Potion Dungeon Keep. Then, visit the Tavern, select the Champion that you want to ascend and click the Ascend button.

  273. Aasimar3G


    I am new so my question my looks silly but I cant stop thinking about it.

    Is fe. Rare – S rank champ is equal to Epic – S rank champ when both are at lvl 60 ?

    I mean if Athel is S Rank but is ‘only’ Rare is there any point to invest in her or is it better to focus on Epic champ B rank or A rank ?

    Is there any scheme which would show that fe.
    Rare S rank > Epic F/C rank
    Rare S rank = Epic Rank
    Rare S rank < Epic A/S rank ??

  274. Azul

    Is it ok to equip a rare champion with epic artifacts?

  275. Nico


    Can we know the drop rate of rare, common monster, ect in campaign?

  276. ShalokShalom


    The new patch nerfs lore of steel

    Speed, accuracy, resistance, crit rate and crit damage are not increased anymore, only 15% stat increase sets

    This renders the mastery almost useless in my eyes, and has, of course, intense changes in the database to follow when it comes to the recommendations for masteries.

    This mastery was previously used for speed, accuracy and crit damage, who are all not increased by this mastery anymore.

    Hard nerf for an already mediocre skill

  277. Khafka

    Hi ayumi, I seemed to have been stuck at this progress mission :
    Dungeon Win a total of 3 Lesser Potions from Spirit, Force, Magic or Void Potion Dungeons
    Reward: 10K Silver, 10 Lesser Arcane Potion

    I wonder why I cant complete it, maybe a bug?

  278. ShalokShalom

    Hi dude!

    Thanks for all the work 🙂

    Could you implement the search bar in the mobile version too?
    At each page on the bottom and/or top would be awesome, I think.

    Thanks for the consideration

  279. xlFUELlx

    What kind of champions & Champions Teams do best in Spiders, Dragon & Fk=Fire Knight?

  280. RED H4WK

    @Ayumilove: You have the XP for actual rank, I included the information of the total XP including all the rank ups.
    For instance, if you have a rare champion and want to level it to 60 using only uncommons as food you are going to need 357 uncommon champions for food, 117 at lvl 20, 30 at lvl 30, 6 at lvl 40 and 1 at lvl 50 and the total XP for all the food and your champion will be 21,367,191.

  281. Ayumilove Post author

    @Misthios: It depends on the champions you currently have. For example, if I have a Level 60 Kael fully ascended with all the skills fully upgraded, then any new Kael champion I get from Mystery Shard or Ancient Shard will be turned into food. Alternatively, if I have a powerful Legendary Poisoner such as Bad-el-Kazar, then Kael would be redundant for my team, therefore he becomes food as well. If you do not have any decent Poisoner champion, then you should level up Kael that you obtaijned from Shard if you have started with Elhain/Galek/Athel in the first place. If you are performing fusion for Rhazin Scarhide, those champions will be kept in vault instead of being used as food. These are some of the scenarios of when you should keep or let go those champions.

  282. Misthios

    Hey is there any possible way you guys can make a list of Champions that you can use exclusively for food? Is so I would greatly appreciate it! and am I interpreting it right that you should never level up rank 1 champions but instead feed them in the tavern?

  283. Dovahkiin

    Hello, is there a place to check (like twitter or something) or do you know when will the next “true” increase ratings for pulls will happen? im saving a lot of shards for that and i was wondering if they pre-announce somewhere… tks vm!

  284. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ciapek23: You need to fuse champions in the Tavern. To get 5 Star Champion, fuse 4 of 4 Star Champions in the Tavern. It will cost some silver too. To get 6 Star Champion, fuse 5 of 5 Star Champions in the Tavern.

  285. Ayumilove Post author

    @all: I have added Strengthen, Increase Accuracy, Increase Critical Damage, Decrease Critical Rate, Decrease Critical Damage and Poison Sensitivity to the index above!

    Mozaffar: Ill break it down.
    1. the champion has to be “attack” you can see the type of champion Directly left of the “artifact tab name” in Champion tab when the champ is selected.

    2. The stat on the Artifact gloves, Chest, and Feet needs to be Attack % (It does not matter what set it comes from. Meaning u can use a “life set gloves” “speed set chest” “lifesteal set boots” as long as the PRIMARY STAT IS ATTACK %

    3. Upgrade these items to lvl 12.

    4. Equip those lvl 12 pieces on 2 DIFFERENT ATTACK TYPE CHAMPIONS

    5. Complete Mission

  288. matthias

    >> Helmsmasher mastery is great against high defense Champions in Arena and Dungeons.

    2 lines under it:

    >> Flawless Execution: Critical Damage +20%. This is the mastery you take on anyone not getting Giant Slayer and Warmaster.

    First, this contradicts each other.

    Second, Helmsmasher is default choice, flawless is for campaign farmer and people like Errol, who already have 100% defense ignorance.

    People like mountain king and Cruetraxa benefit significantly from Savage plus Helmsmasher, flawless is easy to achieve with a 2 piece set.

    My opinion

  289. matthias

    There is also a new simulator on

    What about adding a list of all defense based, hp based and speed based/scaling heros?

    So not their description accordingly that says HP, Support or so, but Hp scaling shields, Hp scaling heals and defense based attacks?

  290. matthias schuster

    This is a list for optimal results in trainings events:

    And just as a heads up, the new buffs and debuffs have no category

  291. matthias schuster

    Bad el is the best healer, he is the only one is the game which lets you do high level clanboss without lifesteal

  292. TiagoTitan

    Hi. Ayumi congrats for your great work. I have a question regarding missions progress part4/4:

    Clan missions where I have to deal some amount of damage to succeed ( example: Deal 10 milion damage to Demon Lord on Min. difficulty Hard in 24 hours/ Deal 75 milion damage to Demon Lord on Min. difficulty Nightmare in 24 hours) in-game it doesn’t say to do in 24hours.

    So, was the game updated and I don’t need to do that amount of damage under 24hours and you didn’t updated that info in the website? Or is it a mistake/error/bug of the game?

    I changed my game language to see if it was a translating error or typo but it was the same.

    I found an error before where some mission asked to get 5 artifacts 5* and it was actually 10 artifacts 5*. So it could be an error.

    I hope someone have an answer =) thanks

  293. matthias schuster

    “Void is neutral, it has no strengths nor weaknesses”

    Void will never land a weak hit, which means 15% chance to not land a debuff, instant and critical hit.

    This is huge and definitely a benefit.

  294. matthias schuster

    Increase Accuracy buffs are not listed here at all.

    Stag Knight, Frozen Banshee and all those new characters are not yet listed here and in the champion listings:

  295. Vault dweller

    I would like to make a suggestion for a new simulator, I don’t know if there is one on a different site, but i come here. So the same way you have the value calculator, is it possible for you guys to make something where you would pick a champion, then pick the artifact type(weapon, helmet, shield, etc.), then type in the main stat and sub stats you have in game, and it would tell you the total stats you have after the change. It would help literally everybody, on the discord and reddit alike, so many people complain of the waste of silver trying out new builds. I know it’s pretty simple math in general, but people like me just don’t have the time(6 kids lol). Anyways this would help me and everybody I think, and i don’t know how hard it would be, but since u have that value calculator I assume you could do this.

    Thanks if you read this.

  296. KindaEpic

  301. Ayumilove Post author

    @LeiaLouise: Starter champion should equip with Lifesteal Set, so he/she can survive throughout the entire Campaign battle. Lifesteal Set is also used to improve Clan Boss Team Setup survivability immensely once they get Warmaster/Giant Slayer (Tier 6 Offense Mastery) as the large amount of damage inflicted to the Clan Boss will heal up to 70~100% HP instantly depending whether the Clan Boss has debuffs such as Weaken and Decrease Defense.

  302. LeiaLouise

    you write for the core Team i should repeat Step 1-3.
    Does that mean i equip on every champ the Lifesteal Set?
    Or just for the Starter?
    Im confused… sry.

  303. Stamos

    I agree with Leader-HAD,
    Your work is amazing and I would not try to rush you.
    I would like to know if you have a plan to rank champions by faction wars. Is that something on your list to add?

    It would also be very nice to add a filterable spreadsheet with all champions and rankings in each category for ease of use, but that is obviously secondary.
    Thanks again for your great work!

  304. Leader-HAD

    1st thx for your great work you do here it’s so helpful.

    2nd can you plz rank champions by faction from best to worst to help us


  305. Ayumilove Post author

    @Fryevia: What are the champions in your inventory? For starters, you can level up your starter champion (example: Kael) to be Level 60 and ascend him to at least 3 stars to unlock the skill full potential. This level 60 will be your primary campaign farmer to create more fodders for your next Level 60 champions.

  306. Ayumilove Post author

    @ShalokShalom: I have made it into 2 sections (side by side) to make it less cramped. Having only 1 section make this page kinda lengthy.

  307. Fryevia

    Great Guide, I am wondering when i am working on my first 6*, should i ascend it? if yes, when should i start?

  308. ShalokShalom

    Great that you have put all the links on the top, exactly what I was hoping for.

    Maybe use only one column on top of each other, side by side does look it very cramped together.

    thanks a lot

    @Tony Galyuk: I have added n1Cartman to the Russian Youtuber List. Thanks for your recommendation!

    @nathanb131: Thanks. I’ll add Kytis into the list!

  323. nathanb131

    You should add Kytis to the Spirit Keep useful champs list. The re-balance in December freed up his A1 to apply Heal Reduction without any qualifiers. He’s been my Spirit specialist since then and he carries my team through the second highest spirit level even though I haven’t bothered to level him past 40 yet. Also maybe this should improve his overall ranking as that made him more useful all-around.

  324. MihaiP

    Hi there,

    Thanks a lot for your site, very usefull information and use it all the time.
    I didn’t find a list of the challenges for raid and are some of them related. Like artifacts challenges, where in part 4 you have to upgrade to lvl 12 some sets of 4-5* and in part 5 you have to equip 4 champion with 3 x 5or 6* artifacts sets of lvl 12 or higher.

  325. Dylbrt

    Ive noticed your ability list does not include INSTANT: DECREASE DEBUFF DURATION

  326. Jesse

    Awesome guide

  327. Matthias Schuster

    Warmaiden is by far not only for force dungeons. She has a 100% chance to land a 60% defense decrease and not even Epics have that. She is considered one the best rares in the game, right with Kael and Apothecary

  328. Matthias Schuster

    I found a new issue:

    Curing (4) – Increases value of Healing done by the Champion by 10%. It’s important to note that this set only applies to Healing the Champion casts. Meaning it does not stack with Artifact Sets such as Lifesteal or similar effects.

    How to put on lifesteal AND Curing?

    @Matthias Schuster: I have added a link at the top of the page to directly go to the Progress Missions.

  330. Jon

    Just a thought, but what would your thoughts be about also dividing champs up by armor sets they prefer at some point? I really am looking forward to the location based search system you’re setting up now! Thank you for all the hard work!

  331. Ed

    Is there a place where you have a table of Ascension costs by rarity & star?

  332. Matthias Schuster

    Can you create a direct link on the top that directs to the progress missions?


  333. Matthias Schuster

    3 issues:

    1) you write Armiger is good for clan boss
    You probably mean the ice golem and maybe spiders for the turnmeter reduction

    2) bellower is void, not sacred shard

    3) Valerie is not only for arena def, she is one of the very few who can increase the duration of buffs

  334. Ayumilove Post author

    @GoTo: Yeah, I’m currently fixing it. It will take sometime for the changes to propagate to all pages.

  335. GoTo

    Also (sorry I should have mentioned before) your great champions by ranking list is not linked from all pages. The link appears on the right when on a champion page, but not here and not on some other pages (champion lists by other criteria for example)

  336. Ayumilove Post author

    @GoTo: Thanks! I have updated the Frenzy Set description (For every 5% HP lost, gain 10% Turn Meter).

  337. GoTo

    Just wanted to mention the description for Frenzy set is not up to date. The set has been changed to +10% TM every 5% HP lost.

  338. Mez

    @Sicis it means u will need to have 4 Chimps with 6 items upgraded to level 16

  339. GoTo

    Sicis, can you share screens of your equipped champions?

  340. Sicis

    Hi, cant end mision Equip 4 Champions with 6 Level 16 Artifacts
    Reward: 150 Energy…
    It says I did 4/3 but I have 8 characters with items 6lvl and +16..
    Any help? Thanks!

  341. Zakk

    Great thank u

  342. zakk

    great site, could u put how many potions it requires to ascend a champ to ascension level 5 and 6

  343. William Weiss

    Do you have a list of all champion builds? I just summoned Nethril Legendary and want to build him for maximum damage.

  344. William Weiss

    Awesomness!! Thank you

  345. William Weiss

    I know he’s a new Champion, But do you have a build for “Ultimate Galek” yet?

  346. DeclaredSnow

    @Raph Thank you good sir!

  347. Raph

    Maybe even fusing Erinyes would be render kael obselet in a counter attack setup ? I plan on getting her ( to replace Kael ) and Bulwark + any reliable attack decrease on a1 i can drop.

    Thanks a lot for the insight on Athel !

  348. Ayumilove Post author

    @Raph: It depends on your Clan Boss team setup. Currently, I swapped Athel with Kael in my Counter Attack team as I have Rhazin Scarhide to apply both Weaken and Decrease Defense. Athel will automatically remove the Counter Attack buffs with his Extra Turn, unless you manually play Clan Boss which I don’t since it takes up too much time compared to Auto. Athel is best suited for Easy, Normal and Hard Clan Boss in Speed team setup based from my experiences. If you get Occult Brawler or Aothar, you can swapped Kael with him.

  349. Raph

    Stage 15/16 there is no more brew or shard drop. Wasting 14E for 2 brew or 4 mystic shards such a boomer..

    Kael is good, but Athel has more late game potential once T6 masteries are unlocked, if im not mistaken.
    I have already droped Bad El and Martyre (only lvl 40 ^^) wouldn’t it better to 6star athel now ? Or should i wait for a better drop to invest in (x2 sacred are comming in boyss) ?

    Looking forward to your POV !

  350. DeclaredSnow

    I tried googeling this but didnt find an answer. Is there any point of farming Dungeons ( gear ) on highter levels of a tier that offer the same reward? For example, I can clear Dragon stage 13 in about one minute, I can also clear dragon stage 16 in about 2.5 minutes. same energy req and rewards. But is there a point in doing this other than getting more silver per clear? better drop rates etc? thank you!

  351. Ayumilove Post author

    @Nate Hughes: Kael is godly in Clan Boss! I highly recommend you to get him to Level 60 as soon as possible, so he can help you in all Clan Boss stages since Poison debuff are quite effective even though you do not have Tier 6 Mastery (Warmaster / Giant Slayer). I have both Athel and Elhain, which I used quite often in clearinng Skavag’s summoned spiderlings in Spider’s Den dungeon. With Kael, he can help clear those mobs much more efficiently than Galek. I got lots of copies of Athel, Elhain and Galek but only 1 Kael. You are so lucky to get Kael multiple times 🙂

  352. Nate Hughes

    Hi, a great website you have here, I refer to it often. I have a question, I’m at level 50 now and have used many ancient shards. All of the “rare” champions have dropped for me, some of them several times, except for 2. These 2 are Athel and Elhain. I started with Galek and have had Kael drop for me 4 times already. Is this just bad luck I’m having or do the starting 4 champions drop at a much lower rate than the other champions? I see below that you mention you have all 4 starting champions so I’m hopeful that I can still get these 2 “missing pieces”. Thanks!!!

  353. zakk

    what are the drop rates for potions on the keeps?

  354. Paul

    Can you provide Clan Boss information? Such as how much accuracy/speed you need for clan boss at each difficulty?

  355. Eric

    To get the full set of gear with atk% on your two champions. What’s the best drop rate spots for each? I can only ever find atk% on shoes shield and chestpiece.

  356. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mally McGinnis: After reviewing Galek skills, he performs subpar compared to the other starter champions in terms of Clan Boss, Campaign Farmer and AoE attacker. Reason being, the extra Critical Hit is easily obtainable from equipment itself, Speed Buff is provided by other champions in the same team with even better potency in Clan Boss setup, and his Decrease Defense debuff has a long cooldown. I have all 4 Champions (Athel, Kael, Elhain and Galek) in my hero inventory for comparison.

  357. Ayumilove Post author

    @Edgedemon: Thank you for highlighting the errors on this page! I have updated the Champion names. In addition, I have attached a link to each Champion name for easier reference to their skills, masteries and equipment guide.

  358. William Weiss

    I really fascinated with the amount of information that you have here and I really hope you don’t mind my sending folks your way VIA our forums.

  359. Edgedemon

    i suspect you messed up one name in the Dungeon Guide for spirit keep, the undead with heal reduction is Bone Knight not Deathknight, Deathkight is a common with 30% counter chance pasive, and sleep on its a1, not a great unit by any stretch

  360. Crossboner

    Thank you SO much for this guide for everyone that put it together, I couldn’t have asked for better, I really appreciate it!

  361. FlashPlays

    Part 1 71/75: I’m getting mad on this quest, I’m farming the artifacts for 3 days and found only a cheastplate with atk% it’s normal that is so hard? Or I do wrong something

  362. Mally McGinnis

    Hi, love your website. I use it constantly. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve done. On the front page of the Raid section, near the top in the FAQ:

    What’s the best starting champion?
    Athel (Clan Boss, Campaign farmer, AoE Attacker)
    Kael (Clan Boss, Campaign farmer, AoE Attacker)
    Elhain (Clan Boss, Campaign Farmer, AoE Attacker)
    Galek (Fast Single Attacker)

    Galek could and should be designated in the same way the other 3 starter champions is designated, as (Clan Boss, Campaign Farmer, AoE Attacker).
