Khoronar Reference

Below is a reference of the artifacts equipped on Khoronar, which are Taunting Set and Perception Set. These artifacts stats prioritized having a balance of Speed, Accuracy, Critical Rate, and HP stats. Taunting Set is suitable for Khoronar as he has the ability to attack all enemies on the battlefield with his A1 (default attack skill) and he has the HP to tank the hits from provoked enemies. When he is paired with champions who can apply Decrease Attack, Decrease Speed and Decrease Speed debuff, enemies who have any of these 3 debuffs attacks Khoronar will receive a counterattack from him and increases the likelihood of getting crowd control with Provoke debuff again. With constant attacks from Khoronar, he can easily lock down the enemy team, preventing them from using any of their special ability that can pose a threat to your team!

Khoronar Champion Lore

The tale of Marquess Khoronar has been told before: how the haughty nobleman was cursed by the Arbiter for his callous ways and lived as an imprisoned beast, but was yet redeemed by his love for Minaya who loved him in turn. As it was told and re-told, often changed and abridged by mistake or for the sake of brevity, taste, and censorship, variations on its theme emerged, and the story was rubbed smooth of many details. Its archetype became embedded in the psyche of the Humans of Teleria, especially among the romantic Banner Lords, from whom the most detailed retellings derive.

At tale’s beginning, the marquess is a man of monstrous character in a Human body, and by its end his monster’s body holds a true man’s, much changed and purified. His redemption comes at the cost of much suffering, but that suffering does not break his will, it does not send him into a spiral of despair and self-pity. He continues to do right by himself and eventually learns to live for others as well. Most readily understand that Khoronar’s suffering and healing are an allegory for the fatal flaws all people possess and must address, and of the power of love and mutual compassion.

But there is another layer of meaning, less obvious in most tellings of the tale, but more clear in the earliest fragmentary versions based on first-hand accounts. Weaved into the story is a subtle but very real fear of Skinwalkers, and the spread of their bestial curse. Although in the story the righteous hand of the Arbiter is the one that damns Khoronar, every peasant hearing the tale knows that any one of them could also suffer the same fate but from cruel, random chance or lack of vigilance. All listeners know that the vivid accounts of Khoronar’s rampages aren’t drawn completely from imagination, but yield from so many generations’ traumatic memories of living with Skinwalkers.

Faithful tellings, however, are more than a simple cautionary tale, for the Khoronar fable is one of redemption, and the Arbiter’s forgiveness in the tale is an allegory for what is possible for all Skinwalkers. Though they are permanently changed by their animal possession, their minds and their souls are still capable of tenderness and love, valor, and nobility. This story’s heart reassures listeners that the terrible Skinwalker curse does not have to truly mean the end.

The most fascinating thing for some, about Khoronar’s tale, is its end, or rather its lack of a definitive end. Each ending has Minaya slain and Khoronar triumphant but heartbroken, only for the Arbiter to appear once more and return Minaya to life in acknowledgement of Khoronar’s genuine turn of goodness. But afterward, the narratives diverge. The high chivalric tradition of Kaerok, with its romantic genre of literature, ends the tale with Khoronar returned to his Human form, restored to his lordly title with Minaya as his bride, their rule long and blessed. The Sacred Order’s hatred of Skinwalkers means that he can not, in official canon, remain one and be a respected ruler. But folk tellings from Kaerok and the Lands of Rebirth often omit the Arbiter’s lifting of the Skinwalker curse from Khoronar. In this rendition of the tale, he remains a Skinwalker and reigns regardless. This twist reveals the peoples’ fears and uncertainties regarding the mere possibility of a Skinwalker becoming a lord or a lord becoming a Skinwalker, and what would come of it. In yet another ending, Khoronar does not return to rulership at all, but still manages to live happily ever after with Minaya, leaving his land and title behind along with his arrogance and cruelty. This ending is most loved among peasants.

And then there is the most fascinating ending of all… Some say that the Arbiter told Khoronar that his debt to the forces of goodness and Light was still unbalanced, and left Khoronar a Skinwalker, perhaps by his own choice. Minaya, having been raised from death by the Arbiter, refused to be parted from his side. And so, both of them offered their eternal service to the Light and had their souls bound to Shards. When the world reaches a crisis it cannot bear, and the end times descend, Minaya and Khoronar will return to the battlefield to save Teleria, or else fight to the last in the name of the Goddess.

Khoronar Storyline

Once upon a time, disaster struck the Kingdom of Kaerok. Year after year, unnatural drought reigned, crops withered and livestock fell for lack of pasture. Thousands died, tens of thousands more suffered greatly. Lords and peasants alike knew hunger and despaired. Throughout Kaerok, few lands remained untouched by famine – and the domain of Marquess Khoronar was one such haven. But the Marquess was arrogant, selfish, and unkind. One night, a malnourished old woman came to the castle and offered Khoronar a single beautiful rose in return for some food that would keep her alive.

Disgusted by her pathetic and destitute appearance, the Marquess sneered and ordered the old woman thrown out of the gate. But before the guards could lay a hand on her, they were struck down by a bolt of lightning and their flesh turned to marble. The old woman’s guise shifted and swirled to reveal her true form, that of angelic beauty, stark noble features, and hair the colour of blazing flame. Recognizing the Arbiter for who she was, Khoronar tried to beg for forgiveness, but it was too late for she had seen his ugly, selfish nature hidden beneath a veneer of nobility.

As punishment, the Arbiter transformed him into a hideous beast and bound his soul to a Shard so that he could never truly die. With a powerful spell placed on the castle, Khoronar was condemned to eternal life as a prisoner. Only if he were to learn to love would he ever be released for his curse. But as centuries passed the Marquess and his castle had been forgotten, lost to time in the depths of the enchanted woods. It appeared that Khoronar was doomed to an endless cycle of misery, unredeemed and unloved. It was only when a young Knight of Kaerok known as Minaya that hope was finally rekindled. Renowned for her kindness and beauty in equal measure, Minaya was widely beloved by her subjects and her peers.

But there were those who grew jealous of her, and those bitter over her refusing courtship. A proud Baron whose advanced Minaya had spurned saw it as an insult that could only be washed away with blood. He sought allies among those who could not bear to see the young Knight’s virtue, and soon enough an assassin’s arrow was poised to pierce Minaya’s heart. By the grace of the Goddess, the assassin missed his mark, and Minaya escaped into the woods. For hours she wondered, and as wolves gathered at her back in hopes of easy prey, she finally came across the enchanted castle where the damned Marquess lived.

At first, Khoronar intended to punish the trespasser. But seeing Minaya’s beauty and the courage she showed even when facing the horrible beast he had become, he stayed his ire. He still imprisoned Minaya, for she knew the way to the castle now, but treated her fairly. His servants, doomed to an existence of living statues, catered to Minaya’s every whim, and each night Khoronar, desperate for company after centuries of loneliness, would dine with her. Slowly, he realized, he was falling in love.

Terrified by the notion, he flew into a fit of bestial fury and chased Minaya from the castle, ordering her to never return. This had almost cost the young Knight her life, for the assassins sent after her had not given up. By a stroke of misfortune, they fell on Minaya’s trail once more and would have surely been the end of her, were it not for Khoronar, remorseful of his display, following Minaya in hopes of earning her forgiveness. He came upon the assassins just as the ambush was sprung and managed to slay them all in the battle that followed. But Khoronar did not escape the fray unscathed himself, and a poisoned arrow struck his shoulder. Minaya hurried to his side and used all of her skill to treat the wound and purge the poison from her saviour’s blood.

Weakened but alive, Khoronar and his companion made it back to the castle. It was then that their feelings had finally come to fruition, and Minaya too looked beyond the grisly facade to see a man repentant, and truly willing to make himself better. She did her best to guide him, to teach him that only in the love for others could Lumaya’s blessings be spread. And yet, thoughts of her people did not leave Minaya even when her own happiness was within her grasp. Though reluctant, Khoronar allowed her to visit her own domain and ensure a suitable castellan could be appointed to rule fairly in her stead while Minaya was absent. She made a promise to return in a week’s time and rode from the castle once more.

Upon her arrival, Minaya found that her lands had been overtaken by the jealous Baron whose proposal she refused, and her people were bled dry and oppressed by draconian new laws. Furious over these abuses, Minaya called upon what allies she could to assist her, and the people of the land rose up to stand at their Lady’s side with whatever weapons they could afford. It was going to be a bloody siege indeed. Meanwhile, Khoronar found himself distraught – the week had passed, yet of Minaya there was no sign. He thought himself betrayed once more and nearly slipped into despair, were it not for a miracle. Though all the mirrors in his castle had long been shattered, shards of glass yet remained scattered in his chamber. One such shard came to life, glowing with arcane energy, and showed the bewildered Khoronar a terrible sight of his love dying in battle.

Abandoning everything, Khoronar made haste to Minaya’s lands. He arrived whe the assault on the castle was already underway and threw himself into the fray. Awed by the arrival of such a powerful and strange ally, Minaya’s men-at-arms could do little but give way to the raging beast. But alas, it was perhaps this haste that led to the prophecy of the mirror being fulfilled. Having forced his way into the great hall of the castle, Khoronar came upon Minaya battling through the Baron’s personal guard. Seeing Minaya’s reaction, the usurper lifted his crossbow and let loose an enchanted bolt that was meant to slay Khoronar. But Minaya threw herself forth and took the strike in her beloved’s place. As her body fell to the ground, Khoronar fell into fury unlike anything he had experienced.

Ignoring injury and pain, he tore into his foes and did not stop until all fell before him, and the treacherous Baron’s sword lay broken at last. Only then did Khoronar fall to his knees and wept over Minaya’s body. His grief was so strong that he did not realize he was no longer alone until a hand rested on his shoulder and his eyes were greeted by blinding light as he turned around. The Arbiter had personally descended onto the battlefield and sought Khoronar out. She revealed that she had been watching him closely, and his selfless actions were enough to earn forgiveness.

What happened next is subject to interpretation and speculation in various renditions of the tale… It is known that the Arbiter used her power to bring Minaya back to life, allowing her and Khoronar to share and embrace and confess their love. Then, according to some, Khoronar’s beastly form faded away and he became a human once more. He and Minaya were wed and lived happily ever after. But there are storytellers who insist there is more to the tale. That the Arbiter did undo the curse, yet warned Khoronar that the suffering his callousness had inflicted could only be repaid with service. Unable to bear being separated from her love, Minaya too pledged her life to the Arbiter and bound her soul to a Shard of Champions willingly. And so it was, Khoronar and Minaya would spend eternity together, yet they would be called upon to fight in Lumaya’s name when need was greatest – a price they both were more than willing to pay.

    this is the best raid story line i’ve ever read
    did you write it?

  2. Morgan

    @Steve. No point having any attack on him as damage is based off HP. So Attack does nothing at all.

  3. onemoregimp

    Ich nutze ihn nahezu überall im Spiel: in der Kampagne konnte er solo bis in Albtraum- Kapitel 10-6 die 3 Sterne holen. Ich nutze ihn jetzt um EP Boost auszunutzen und farmchamps ran zu ziehen.
    In der Arena spiele ich auf G4 niveau in einem Team aus Lyssandra (L), Tayrel, Apotheker und Khrornar.
    In nahezu allen Dungeons kann ich ihn auch mit dem Arena Team spielen. Der Feuerritter funktioneirt so nicht. Auch im Doom-Tower ist er mit dieser Aufstellung hervorrang aufgehoben um die Wellen schnell klein zu bekommen.
    Mein Set besteht aus Geschwindigkeit, Göttliches Leben und Ewig. Fokus hiebei ist max Leben und so bin ich bei ca 110k hp, 2k deff, 160 gsw, 110 ACC, 180 widerstand.

  4. snq

    I love my Khoronar in Lifesteal set…
    Khoronar + Madame Serris = almost all UNM Comparing
    Khoronar + Ultimate Galek = Spider Den 20 lvl
    Khoronar really helps in Doom Tower levels (not on boss ofc)

  5. dave

    Very fun Champion! My account was 1.2M power and i pulled a Khoronar and it was literally gamechanging. Dungeon progression went up 5 levels. I’m auto battling 18’s now. I think he should maybe be rated a little higher on Campaign though. Paired with my Psylar, they 3 starred most of my Nightmare Campaign. Khoronar is just a beast at locking down waves, pretty much everywhere. I have mine in Taunt and Perception gear and it’s really funny how often Provoke and Counterattack procs. Even with both in 4 and mostly 5 star gear. Overall, amazing kit, amazing champ. (Amazing Website, thank you!)

  6. steven

    with such a weak multiplier would he do better with attack than just stacking hp?

  7. Nommanom

    I’d recon the best combo for Khoronar in terms of sets is 1 Taunt and 1 DT Freeze Set. Works great in the sense that for DT, Khronar can resist freeze and place freezes as well, further locking it down.

  8. MrShovel

    Should be S tier. 5 star for campaign, farms in 10 seconds, hp based which is nice for nightmare, all aoe attacks. 4 star for clan boss. Decrease defense and decrease attack, counterattacks when hit by decrease defense, decrease attack which should be on the clan boss for 90% of the time. Why isn’t he S tier?

    @Aurack: Thanks for reporting the error. I’ll update the Khoronar links 🙂

  10. Aurack

    Just to say the URL of this page is kohronar instead of khoronar.

    Good job for all your guides it helps a lot!

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @jakefromstatefarm: Thanks for your input! I’ll add the Taunt Set to the equipment guide list.

  12. jakefromstatefarm

    Khoronar’s best set has to be Taunting (please add it to the recommended sets). Taunting doesn’t see a lot of use in the game, but it synergizes amazingly with Khoronar’s kit.
    His A1 is AOE, and it gives him a 30% chance of provoking every time he counter attacks. This leads to an endless, downward spiral of the provoked targets attacking him and triggering more provokes through counterattack, until the opposing team constantly has 2-3 targets under permanent provoke which they cant escape from.
    Seriously, taunting set makes him an absolute beast. Literally all 3 of his abilities have AOE provokes with this set

  13. Coffeemonster2

    I’d change up his masteries vs what you have above. His specialty is really clearing trash waves and being general crowd control. He’s a monster in the arena if you spec him right.

    He’s really best off with Helmsmasher at end game and flawless execution before that. I would also make sure he has bloodshield since his HP will likely be over 80k in decent gear (mine has over 110k HP and he’s not in anywhere near best in slot gear).

    I would go down the defense tree over support. Master hexer doesn’t affect provoke, it would only impact his attack down and he’s not a viable main attack down champ (4 turns is too long). Most of the support tree is to increase his Acc which you can get with gear. Deterrance or cycle of revenge are more valuable than the 1.5% more HP you get with lore of steel.

    If his AI weren’t dumb, he’d be a 10 second farmer in appropriate gear. He wastes time taunting but his A1 can one-shot 12-3.

  14. Dave

    To make up for not having Minaya, have a def debuffer go ahead of him and enjoy. Sadly for me the few books I’ve managed to throw on him completely missed his a1.

  15. Verth

    I got this guy today and so far loving him, would love to get Minaya but even alone this champion is awesome, I am probably going to try and go defense heavy and make him an insane tank nuker, so a good amount of crit rate and damage with defense % and HP % where I can.

  16. OrcLadyConnoisseur

    This guys is sick; even if you don’t build him with crit rate/damage gloves he still hits hard because of his HP scaling. Useful if not downright op in almost every area of the game. Give him evil eye mastery and just laugh at how easy the game becomes. Kind of wish his provoke was 2 turns though; am I asking too much?

  17. akiskaloz

    @Fooby, yeah 2 mening every single dungeon with Minaya… This is a stupid dou, shouldnt exist in the game.

  18. Fooby

    This guy is a beast, pulled him from the summoning event previously.
    He helped me clear IG 20, Drags 20 and Soon FK 20.

    Equipped him with a Stun set, with
    – CR% on gloves
    – HP% on chest
    – Speed on boots.

    With his A2 provoke & passive counter + stun set on A1 his CC is great for the waves leading to bosses.

    + He is a void champ so affinity won’t affect his damage output.

    *No Att% on chest cuz it scales badly and his A1 does dmg based on HP

  19. Ayumilove Post author

    @Bjos: I have added Hell Hades video into the champion guide above! Thanks for mentioning it 🙂

  20. Ayumilove Post author

    @Coffeemonster2: The early ratings were given based on his skill kit. After watching Khoronar’s performance showcased in Youtube videos, I have re-evaluated his ratings. A 5* campaign farmer is a champion who can perform a campaign clear it under 10 seconds on Campaign Brutal. A 4* Campaign farmer is rated for those who clears under 30 seconds or assist the primary champions (1~2 champion completing Campaign with 3 Stars) for Normal, Hard, Brutal or Nightmare.

  21. Bjos

    Yeah this champ is under rated. The video review is from Hell Hades. You should check this video review

  22. Coffeemonster2

    I really disagree with your ratings for this champ. I think you are missing his counterattack mechanics and his synergy with debuffs.

    1. He is a campaign monster, all of his attacks are AOE. If Bellower is a 5* campaign farmer, so is this guy. He’s more durable than Suzerain Katonn who you have rated as 5* for campaign. Also he’s void, so he won’t run into any issues with affinities. If you need to 3* a campaign chapter, he can do it.

    2. He has a guaranteed counterattack for Clan Boss if you have champs who are bringing attack down (and really… you should have that). WM works extremely well on him.

    3. He has 27k base HP, provoke, and block debuffs. He reduces your opponents’ turns when he counterattacks. How is that not great for an arena defense champ?

    Given how rare team counterattack champs are, having counterattack passively on a champion is really nice. Especially when he brings a solid complement of debuffs.
