    @Maluco: When you are just starting out, you will be hindered by lack of equipment to select for your champion. Therefore, I would recommend using any gear you have on him until you can find the right primary stats for it. For instance, if you do not have a Speed Boots but only have HP Boots, then use HP Boots temporarily as a placeholder until you can find a decent Speed Boots.

    Kael is an attacker champion and it would be best for him to be able to perform many attacks as possible within an enemy turn. This is achieve by having a Speed advantage over the enemy. Using HP Boots will not allow him to make full use of his potential. This applies to all areas in the game, whether its Arena, Faction Wars, Dungeons, etc. For your situation, I would recommend prioritizing farming Dragon’s Lair dungeon for Lifesteal Set, Speed Set and Accuracy Set as they are very useful for beating higher level Clan Boss difficulty.

    If Kael is your primary damager for Dragon and you do not have any Revive or Healer champions, I would prioritize on using Lifesteal Set with the primary stats of HP% chestplate, Critical Rate glove, Speed Boots, Defense Ring, Defense Amulet and Accuracy Banner to Poison the dragon effectively and efficiently. He will be able to heal from his Critical Attack and Warmaster (Tier 6 Offense Mastery). Once you summoned better support champions, you can slowly convert those HP% chestplate, Defense Ring, Defense Amulet to focus more on Attack and Critical Damage to speed up the dungeon runs.

  2. Maluco

    I have a general question about equipments, in early-mid stage of the game (Nightmare campaign, Bronze4-Silver1 arena, Stage 13 dungeons). Where I don’t have unlimited amount of equipment to choose from with best stats:

    4* speed boots vs 5*HP boots?
    4* Atk% chest vs 5*ACC chest?

    etc. How should I approach this – go with max stars, grind for 6* in the future, or apply best boosts for stats I want, but with less effective equipment (4*)?

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @Sev: I would build him with high damage (4000 ATK, 100% Critical Rate, 150~250% Critical Damage, 170~190 Speed). No need for Accuracy to apply Poison in Arena. I would put him in Savage Set and Cruel Set, pair him with a Decrease Defense champion such as Warmaiden / Bellower / Stag Knight (Speed 190~210).

  4. Ayumilove Post author

    @Angadur: Early-Mid game, you will be using your starter champion in all places (farming Campaign Dungeon and raiding Clan Boss), so those masteries are very useful during that time. You will have very little resources to level and ascend a champion to Level 60, so its best to make him an all-rounder. The mastery above is still being used for my Kael. Your first 5 core champions (Level 60, 6 Star fully ascended) must be fully capable to handle most Dungeons 1~14. From there, you start building specific champion to tackle each Dungeon to reach Dungeon 20 more efficiently and effectively.

  5. Ayumilove Post author

    @Toby Sling: The stats shown in the equipment guide are the ones that are top priority, not in any particular order. There are 3 stages in the game (early-mid-late). Early game you will focus more on damage, because most enemies does not have much Defense and Resist. Mid-game you will focus more on defensive/tankier-build, because enemies become more difficult (e.g. more HP/DEF/ATK/RESIST). Kael being an attack role champion would not be able to survive easily unless you have very good equipment to sustain him in battle (e.g. buying 6 Star equipment with cash). Late game you will be farming lots of high quality equipment with very good substats from Dungeon 20. From there, you will focus on both, with slight priority to DEF%/HP% if you are using Kael in Clan Boss. If mostly used outside Clan Boss, you can prioritize for higher ATK%/ACC.

  6. Toby Sling

    Why do you have defense percentage as the top priority when he has lifesteal? he has to do damage in order to steal life, correct? Isn’t it based on the amount of damage he does? With defensive and health percentages as a top priorities, how can he do that? I followed your guide and it seems pretty useless for him and he is at level 50. You know a lot more about this game than I do but I’m just curious. Also, if you say poison is his main weapon then why isn’t accuracy higher on the list. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lastly, I have him at level 60 on another account with divine life and speed and he seems to be a lot better all around champion.

  7. Destroyer39

    He is much better then that in Fire Knight (4), Spider (5), Spirit and Magic both 5.

  8. Sabbib Xiam

    Why Kael is not S Rank Champion? He is the Best Starter. and best in Rare’s Champion too. I think Kael should to get S Rank.

  9. Maximara1945

    I’ve found that having kael with a a 1 regeneration set 1 offensive set turns him into an effective one man army with the 1 regeneration set healing him through most damage.

  10. Angadur

    @ayumilove – Masteries Kill streak and Blood Shield seems pretty useless in CB and almost as bad in arena, Methodical seems much more reliable. Ant thoughts?
    Thanks for a grand job!

  11. Sev

    What would you suggest for equipment on an Arena only Kael? I just got my third one and thought I should specialize.

    He makes a decent Arena champ. I was thinking of going through a Flawless Execution with 2 offence and a crit rate set (or speed if I can’t get him fast enough with substats).

  12. Yeti

    @MKHASA green and blue

  13. MKHASA

    @odd_cow got it thanks.

  14. MalseRakker

    @zog CB (and other bosses) are more about the long game, so the damage from kael is mainly from poison effects (ACC) while he stays alive (HP%/DEF%)

  15. Odd_Cow

    MKHASA, his affinity is Magic, which mean he will be in green or blue but not void. Void only give Void Affinity Heros

  16. MKHASA

    Hi There, I’m new to this site and to the game so sorry if this has already been answered. How can I get Kael? Is he only available from void shards? Or also green and blue? Thank you.

  17. Timotres

    @Solanis understood, thx ;)

  18. Solanis

    @Timotres any of the advanced sets are fine replacements for the base sets. I.e. Cruel instead of Attack or Divine Life instead of Life, etc

  19. Timotres

    Instead of using an offense set, couldn´t you use e.g. a cruel set?
    It also requires 2x artifacts per set and gives the +15% ATK bonus as the offense set, but as a bonus you get one more stat (ignoring 5% enemies DEF).

  20. Zog

    Hi there, thank you for your great site, it provides so much infos on the game, really great work !
    I probably missed something, but how do you output dmg on clan boss or even regular mobs, with only DEF%, HP%, SPD, ACC artifacts, as recommended in the equip guide ? I don’t understand… Thanks.

  21. Shaaw

    Even off affinity, Kael should be higher than 2* for force keep… His poisons bypass the boss’ high defense…

  22. Xe0n

    Hi, i’m looking for the best replacer for Kael, for campaign farming AND CB, and obv if the char is good in Fire knight, it could be worth, What do you think about it, Here is a Supa Saiyan Kael ?

  23. Darek

    Hate this guy. Everyone have it, but I don’t. My Elhain 60 lvl with 4K attack and 50% attack buff can’t kill 50 lvl Kael in one shot, but he one shot my full team on arena most of the time even on lvl 50 without any buffs. It seems like there are hidden annoying multipliers for skills that makes me cry sometime.

  24. Alkahalik

    You have to keep in mind, that the masteries are for Clan Boss AND Dungeons. Not just an exclusive CB build. The idea behind it is Kael will also be Campaign farming for you as well.

  25. Niko

    @Deadpool Oh, I see what I think your point was. Take away -Killstreak- and -Blood shield-. Pick -Methodical- and -Sniper-. Path to -Warmaster- remains.

  26. Niko

    @Deadpool Killstreak is needed in order to pick Warmaster.

  27. Deadpool

    @ayumilove I don’t know that I agree with the Clan Boss/Dungeon Masteries. It seems almost pointless to use Blood Shield on bosses, especially the Clan Boss, as you would only get that shield for the first two rounds in a dungeon battle and you would never get the shield in the Clan Boss fight. I fell like you would get much more benefit from using Methodical since you are almost guaranteed to use his A1 at least 5 times and the 10% damage boost is always a plus. I also think that it would be more beneficial to use Sniper rather than Kill Streak. Granted, this one is more of a user preference thing, but Kael is an awesome Clan Boss champ and you wouldn’t get any benefit to using Kill Streak on the Clan Boss. Now using him in the dungeon, that probably makes sense.
    I almost feel as though having a separate Mastery chart for Clan Boss and Dungeon would make a lot of sense for this champion. The reason for this is because of the aforementioned Kill Streak/Sniper Mastery and another one would be Shield Breaker, not very useful against the Clan Boss, but probably great against the Magic Keep. It’s honestly a toss up on which of the remaining two offense masteries one should use, but both would be better for the clan boss.
    By the way, thank you for putting this site together, it is very helpful and greatly appreciated

  28. Xelset


    Lifesteal also works on warmaster proc, healing your champ to full

  29. JCal123

    Imo the Shield Breaker mastery isnt worth it. If you are using him in arena hes most likely going last on your team after your debuffers and such. The opponents heros shouldnt have much if any shield left at that point by the time Kaels turn comes. Heart of Glory feels like more of a garuantee to do extra dmg on avg than Shield Breaker to me.

  30. BilliBill

    Because while you hit CB he will hit you too, and CB hit harder and harder the more you attack him.
    To get more points you want to stay alive longer, and the HP/Defence substats help you to stay alive longer.
    The Lifesteal just refills your HP, not ‘keep you alive’ , the harder the boss hit you the more HP/Defence you want…

  31. Araviel

    For clan boss, I don’t understand the point to a full hp defense substat WHILE using a lifesteal set… if someone clan enlight me please

  32. Dr.hog

    I also was wondering about those. They dont seem quite accurate.

  33. Alex Mulcahy

    Why not Lifesteal?

  34. Carbunc

    Also charged focus over exalt in death for cb

  35. Carbunc

    Why shield breaker on CB mastery list? CB doesn’t shield himself seems like heart of glory would be better for overall dps

  36. Ayumilove Post author

    @RastalRahl: Kael isn’t effective and efficient in Fire Knight Dungeon as his A1 skill is only a 1 hit. I have already tested this out in Fire Knight Dungeon 15~20 with my Level 60 Kael (6 Star Fully Ascended, Fully Geared with Accessories).

  37. RastalRahl

    Why just 2/5 in Fire Knight’s Castle?

  38. Ayumilove Post author

    @Gorthor: Six star Kael first. He excels in almost all areas compared to Luthiea, and he is easier to get fully skill booked since Rare Skill Tomes are easier to obtained compared to Epic Skill Tomes.

  39. Gorthor

    Who should I six star first? Kael or luthiea?

  40. j4zss

    The maths is ATK * (1+C.RATE) * (1+C.DMG)

    Moreover, Kael ends up with something like 3k ATk with artifacts and ascend

    So the +75 ATK are insignifiant

  41. frantennis

    @Aeolwind but I gess you can also get the 100% C.DMG with your set, so the overall is the same, but you end having more damage with +75 ATK

  42. Stefan

    Hello “Collecter”

    Thy for this very special guide. Just read a part of all, but…wow.
    Greeting from switzerland.


  43. Aeolwind

    @frantennis I think the fact you can get over 100% crit damage & 100% crit rate is what scoots it in that direction.

  44. frantennis

    I have 1 question about the first mastery point in the ATK branch. In my opinion you should put the point on +75 ATK and this is why:

    You can calculate your average damage as: ATK*(1+C.RATE*C.DMG). For Kael at lvl 60 we have: ATK = 1200, C.RATE = 0.15 and C.DMG = 0.57. With this, the average damage is 1302. If we put the first mastery in +75 ATK, we obtain 1384 average damage. If we put the first mastery in +0.05 C.RATE, we obtain 1337 of average damage, so, it is obvious that +75 ATK is better than +0.05 C.RATE.

    My question is, am I missing something?

  45. Ayumilove Post author

    @BigTimeGames: There are no nerf implemented by Plarium. Currently, the ranking are being reworked using a more systematic rating score table, rather than based on the one extracted from the in-game ratings. I discovered that it is somehow inaccurate as players may just score all 5 stars without testing him in all the fields first.

  46. Ayumilove Post author

    @Gaggle7722: The ranking is based on evaluating all the fields he performs. Kael is God Tier in some areas but not all of them, therefore Kael is given a lower overall rank. It’s just a reference to indicate whether the champion is good everywhere or less areas. I personally have a Level 60 Kael and have tested him in Dungeons, Clan Boss, Campaign and Faction Wars along with the other 4 starter champions :)

  47. Ayumilove Post author

    @Logan: I own 4 starter champions (Galek, Kael, Athel and Elhain) and have tested them. Galek is the rank lowest among all the starter champions when evaluated in all fields (Clan Boss, Dungeons, Arena, Campaign). Galek is mostly used for fast single-attacker takedown enemy champions. His usefulness quickly diminishes as you progress further in-game. Reason being, his debuff inflicts 30% Decrease Defense and requires a pre-condition to trigger the 60% Decrease Defense. In addition, other champions can provide Speed Buff to keep the team in sync, with Turn Meter increase, etc. However, Galek can still be used in Faction Wars if there are no good Orc champions in your belt to play with.

  48. Bawsax

    Also….Thank you to the creator of this amazing site. I would have been so lost without it’s guidance and logical layout. Awesome work!!!

  49. Bawsax

    Nerfed so hard. F2P original char nerfed to rebalance other chars and make way for new ones coming. Sad for us who have spent time and in some cases money to get Kael and the others to a good level. Can I take his armour off for free now he is crapola? Nope. I mourn him and the other victims in my collection. I Love this game as hard as Kael was nerfed x

  50. Logan

    you have the best website
    is kael the best starter because I do not now becouse someone said is galek
    so can you get in touch ;)

  51. Gaggle7722

    I think he should be put in god tier

  52. BigTimeGames

    Several Champs (including Kael) dropped out of God Tier as of Jan4.2020, nerf or reworking numbers?
