Kyoku Review

Kyoku is a Legendary Defense Spirit champion from Shadowkin faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Kyoku was introduced in Patch 4.90 on November 2021. She is known for her exceptional protection buffs and unique passive that make her a formidable opponent on the battlefield. Her primary objective is to safeguard her allies from their enemies and ensure the safety of her faction.

Kyoku’s main ability is to place ally protection on her allies and a block damage on herself for 3 turns while gaining an Extra Turn. This unique setup means that the ally protection lasts for 2 turns, with a 3 turn cooldown, while Kyoku remains protected from all damage. This makes her the most potent protector in Teleria, giving her the ability to keep her allies safe in the most challenging of battles.

Kyoku’s passive ability is considered an upgraded Seeker passive, as any critical hit on her or her allies will heal her allies for 15% of their MAX HP and place a Defense buff for 2 turns. This makes her an invaluable asset to her team, as she can heal her allies while defending them from their enemies.

While her A2 is a little tricky to use, as it requires another champion to apply a 100% AoE 50% decrease attack to enable her HP burn, it is still a viable way to deal with Spider, and AOE HP burn is also incredibly powerful. Additionally, Kyoku can solo Bommal hard 90 with the correct stats in a regen set, running at a true speed of 358 with a minimum of 55k HP.

Finally, Kyoku’s A1 is a powerful attack that hits four times on a target with three debuffs. This makes her an excellent champion for dealing with multiple enemies at once, making her a valuable addition to any team.

In conclusion, Kyoku’s powerful protection buffs helps to keep her allies safe while dealing damage against multiple enemies at once. She is an invaluable asset to any team, making her a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

    @iiEquinox: It depends on how you synergize Kyoku with other champions in your teams. If you manage to keep debuffs on the enemy (e.g. Clan Boss), then Kyoku damage shines there with decent amount of Critical Rate and Critical Damage. Otherwise, it’s best to have her with high HP% and DEF% to make her a tanky supporter hero.

  2. iiEquinox

    The damage on her A1 seemed kinda underwhelming without debuffs on the opponent – is it even worth building her in crit damage + crit rate? Or should I give her another defense%/hp% gauntlet in place?

  3. Shizukuishi

    Quick question… On this and every other champion on my account, I have +2 speed for Potions Keep. Do you know why I may have that? I am running Plarium play on my laptop. I do not have it on my main, which is at a higher level, running on cell phone.

  4. Deric

    Everyone should know this lady is super overestimated especially for Gnisshak doing better solo Bommal. Her rating in raid is unreal.

  5. bob

    wouldn’t guardian (+immortal) be great on her since she’s got block damage up most of the time?

  6. Valmeyjar

    She solos Bommal on Hard 90 in 2:14, and you give her 4 stars there?

  7. PemburuHatiMu

    Her A2 HP burn only work if the enemies already has decrease attack debuffs placed by another champs.

  8. Raider808

    There is lots of discussion regarding using Kyoku on a “go 2nd” Arena team, which is the main reason I used the 150 Ancients to get her. Using her on this type of team, I would think def and support masteries would be the better than one going ofc. Although she can do some damage, her main job would be to help team survive.
    Can you add your suggested masteries for this type of team? T6: Bulwark, Unshakeable, Timely Intervention?
    Anyone else using her on a “go 2nd” Arena team?

  9. *RINZLER*

    Does anyone know how fast Kyoku would have to be to keep Block Damage up 100% of the time in UNM Demon Lord?

    You have – “has an 80% chance of placing a [HP Burn] debuff for 2 turns on all enemies without [Decrease ATK] debuffs.”

    It should read – has an 80% chance of placing a [HP Burn] debuff for 2 turns on all enemies that this skill does not place a [Decrease ATK] debuff on.

  11. sauce

    Can her block damage be used to beat Deardhorn in DT?

  12. YoMommasBoy

    Her a2 is basically a dual threat. Normally, you’re getting a strong atk down, which is what you want. But you can bring an AoE atk downer with her to apply it and then she becomes a spirit affinity burner. It’s weird, but it works and she is REALLY strong.

  13. Drahnula

    I think her A2 is intended to counter Hydra poison cloud. With poison cloud up, the automatic weak hit will never apply Attack Down. Then HP Burn will be applied as a place effect.

  14. sin

    her a2 is just so confusing. the hp burn is so random that it’s practically still requires acc so if you have the needed acc the decrease atk will land first. and if you want her decrease atk the hp bur would become useless. at least they should have made it un-resistible. or put hp burn on those WITH decrease atk. that way her a1 would be much more useful. she would bring two of the debuffs herself for her a1. she would be a goddess in CB and hydra.

    this way she’s just good, really good, but not great.

  15. YoMammasBoy

    @Joshua I think the point of the Extra turn on her Ally Protect skill is to cycle through her skills faster and allow her to use that AoE Atk down on the same turn. So she’s protecting your entire team and making the entire other team weaker. It’s similar to the Deacon Armstrong mechanic to wear multiple hats on one turn. That it drops her Block Damage by a turn isn’t such a big deal because it also brings her a3 around faster. I can find tons of uses for her in FK, Spider, Campaign, Clan Boss, Arena, and Doom Tower.

  16. Jimthajim

    @joshia thnx made her to 50 got the food for 60 but wait till next event lol

  17. Joshua

    I am running her with Deacon and the combo is unstoppable, you should build! She is my 2nd legendary and is good in all content

  18. Joshua

    Early to Mid-game player here. Pulled her recently and maxed her out. Very happy with her, I recommend building her! I even climbed to Gold 2 arena without an OP team. She is great in dungeons too, keeping allies very safe with ally protect and AOE attack decrease. Not to mention she will boost everyone else because she applies weaken debuff. Sadly, one of her Block Damage buffs is kind of useless because she takes another turn immediately after applying it, but still, she is nearly unkillable. She has carried me to Fire Knight 20 and I have only been playing about 22 days. Amazing!

  19. Jimthajim

    She looks great gonna make her 60 next champ train event, but i also have Mother cybelle, and building Deacon but nldont know how to make him great for alle content

  20. RelativeNewbie

    @Jimthajim Yeah, the first build is an all-content build.

    Here’s hoping Payrium figures out that the second part of the text on her a2 makes absolutely no sense at all and does the smart thing, like removing it in place of something like “This attack also applies HP Burn for 2 turns if this attack is critical”. Having a 2-turn strong atk down is nice, but not so much on a cooldown skill and doubly so since there are no book mods to reduce the cooldown.

    She’s such a good tank though.

  21. Jimthajim

    Do you have a viable build voor her for all content?

  22. Lagrange3

    Just pulled her from an ancient shard. First stop…here…finally a decent legendary. Hopefully she pays off in hydra.
