Lydia the Deathsiren Review
Lydia the Deathsiren is a Legendary Support Void champion from Dark Elves faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Lydia the Deathsiren was introduced in Patch 2.30 on October 2020 as a reward for completing all Faction Wars stages with 3 stars rating.
Lydia is an extremely powerful champion for most content in Raid Shadow Legends. Hence, she could not be summoned from a Void Shard else it enables player to complete the game too quickly! She is commonly used for speed running dungeons as she has Siren’s Well skill that applies Decrease Defense and Weaken simultaneously to allow players to farm higher ranking artifacts much more efficiently, as well as clearing Doom Tower content with ease. Lydia is also utilized to build super tanky team to achieve world record damage for Clan Boss content and commonly used in Arena to counter revive teams using her unique passive skill to block revive champions.
To sum up, Lydia the Deathsiren is an oustanding champion who will boost a player’s account progression level for achieving end-game quickly, giving the similar vibe as Arbiter who helps players in the late game.

Lydia the Deathsiren Reference
Lydia All-Rounder Build
Here is Lydia the Deathsiren artifacts and masteries optimised by Ayumilove for all content in the game. Perception Set is used to provide additional Accuracy stats for Lydia to successfully inflicts her debuff. The stats prioritized for this build are a high amount of Resist and Accuracy to reduce the chances of receiving enemy’s debuff while enabling her to apply debuff on them, followed by a balance of Speed, HP and Defense for sustainability. The masteries selected for Lydia is to maximize her speed output, so it will not be suitable for any speed tuned teams.
Lydia Clan Boss Build
Here is Lydia the Deathsiren artifacts and masteries optimised by Ayumilove for Clan Boss, Dungeons, Faction Wars and Doom Tower content. It is also speed tuned for Super Tanky World Record Clan Boss Team! The changes done in this build from the previous one was to increase Lydia’s Critical Rate to deal more damage against bosses as well as replacing masteries with the ones that does not Increase Turn Meter as it will lead to desync with the rest of the team! The Accuracy and Resist stat remains high, so she could still be used in end-game content such as Doom Tower (Hard Mode).
Lydia the Deathsiren Storyline
In the blessed days before the Elvish people were torn in twain by the great schism, there lived a sorceress as fierce as she was wise. Known by her given name of Lydia, she was famed for her mastery of the arcane, and many a-noble sought her counsel on matters both political and spiritual. Yet, for all her virtue, there was one thing the great sorceress feared above all. Death. Even the long life of an elf comes to an end one day, but Lydia’s pride would not allow her to accept the inevitable. It was this hubris that the servants of Siroth used. Recognized and targetted by corrupt nobles, Lydia found herself subtly nudged towards the study of forbidden lore. Where many of her peers sought to control death through the vile art of necromancy, Lydia’s gaze turned towards blood magic – for blood was surely the source from which life sprung. In time, her desire to learn turned into a fell obsession that led the sorceress to commit horrible atrocities in the name of eternal life. The rot of evil poisoned her heart, ensuring she threw her lot in with the rebel dark mages when they finally revealed themselves. In response, the Basileus sent a full detachment of Royal Guard to apprehend or execute Lydia for her treason. But even the best soldiers in Aravia were not enough to stop her now. They arrived just in time to see Lydia complete her latest, most convoluted ritual that drained the lifeblood of numerous lesser mages and channelled it all into a singular vessel – Lydia’s own body. It twisted and changed before the eyes of the baffled soldiers; wings of raw bone and swirling blood sprang from Lydia’s back, razor-sharp talons formed on the tips of her fingers, and her agonized wail shattered even the stoutest of hearts. Her power now increased manifold, Lydia slaughtered her way out from her besieged estate to join the civil war that already raged on the streets of the Elvish capital. Their coup was doomed to fail. Even the combined malice of the Dark Elves had proven insufficient to topple the realm of Aravia. Along with countless other apostates, Lydia was forced to flee the wrath of her vengeful kin, cursed to wander the lands of Teleria as an exile and hunted like a beast. And yet the legend of the Deathsiren endured. None of the would-be hunters succeeded in laying Lydia low, and she still stalks the crypts and ancient ruins in search of anything that would help her further her magical power and conquer death once and for all.

Why is she rated 5* for Hydra? B/c of the AOE Defense Down, or for something else? Thanks!
Awesome champ. Usable in most areas of the game, i have her running fast and second after arbiter. Sethallia then cleanses and boosts turn meter. This allows me to have a much slower nuker. I have high crit rate to trigger seekers passive before seth cleanses (if you are wondering why cleanse and tm is after the debuff…)
Also, the block revive passive has a 9(7booked) turn cooldown. So in an arena fight normally will only proc once.
I have Lydia fully booked and full masteries. Enemy Arbiter’s and Duchess Lilitu are able to revive their allies, on the 2nd attempt even though I have Lydia in my composition. Revive is blocked on the 1st attempt. Should enemy revival be happenning? No other reviver has been able to revive against Lydia that I can recall.
I note that I run Ukko and Duchess lilitu, both are awakened at level 1.
@Spotz and @ Biolith. I believe Lydia’s passive ignores block revive champions. It says it right in the passive description. So it should ignore Mortu’s Peril skill
@Biolith – No, it doesn’t seem to allow you to revive someone who’s been killed with Peril.
Does her pasive revive work on an ally if an ally champion is killed by Mortu-Macaab’s Peril skill?
I denied Is passive denyby blocking It with Ramantu
I Denied Is passive denyby bolcking It with Ramantu
Anyone notice her likeness to Starcraft’s “kerrigan” by Blizzard entertainment!
I don’t know if it’s a visual glitch, but when she uses the 25% strengthen buff, it says -25%, not +25%.
@Timbo23: Yeah, but she is definitely very useful for Dungeon Speed Run once you got her upon completing Faction Wars! She sped up all my Dungeon Runs below 1 minute 30 seconds consistently. She is quite a game-changer similarly to Arbiter. I currently use Lydia with Seer and Renegade to defeat the enemies quickly for the first 2 rounds of mobs. The remaining 2 champions are selected for the boss. Reneagde with Shield Set provides Shield Buff, while Lydia provides Increase Speed buff and Strengthen buff for Seer to consume to inflict damage to enemies.
@UndoneSurvivor: I have corrected Lydia the Deathsiren’s descriptor from “DS-LSV” to “DE-LSV”. Thanks for pointing it out!
Shouldn’t her descriptor be “DE-LSV” ?
Maybe its because all the words but she sounds a lil OP to me
@Grave Other than a couple of mates in top plat who are using her for stall teams, I don’t know anyone who is actually getting much use out of her. I still haven’t even built mine as I can’t see where I’d use her her. Running Seer in dungeons means I already effectively have def down and weaken, so she’s no help there. And Serris’ buff strip is just straight up more useful in arena.
@Grave: Thanks for sharing your experiences of Lydia the Deathsiren in Arena! I believe she is not the solution to all Arena Defense but she has niche usages, which is primarily blocking enemy from reviving.
I’ve enjoyed using mine, but after the initial hype i’ve found i only really use her when speed clearing weaker teams in arena. It stops the tough duchess reviving the team after a nuke, or brakus getting up and slamming someone into the ground, and also makes tormins easier to clear. But as soon as you get higher up the foodchain i find much less of a use case for her. Blocking one revive isnt massively helpful and i dont think her other skills bring enough to displace someone like Madame.
She means the death of all us mid game players…
@all: The list of data has changed:
Faction: Demonspawn → Dark Elves
Type: Attack → Support
Stats: Will be re-updated again once its released in the game (production server).
The skills has been re-updated based on 2.30 Highlight Patch:
Oppression (A1 Skill): [Passive Effect] Can only attack each enemy once. (NEW)
Death Hold (A4 Skill): Cooldown: 7→9 Turns
(NEW) Aura: Increases Ally RESIST in Arena battles by 100.
Is it confirmed that she’s gonna be an ATTACK type champion?
Where did these stats come from? I’m looking at the datamined values as of 6 days ago and I see her resistance is level 30 and base speed is 105. I can imagine perhaps ascended her takes her from 105 speed -> 110 speed but the resist part doesn’t match.
I’m honestly impressed and disappointed at the same time. This champ Needs her Own Gatagory Ayumi.. She is SS Rank and please make this a thing because there is no comparisons between her abilities and any other champ.
Her Atk at 1900 The highest of any champ and roughly 25% higher than the average between Attack champs Which is a big margin honestly.
Her Speed is Tied with the Best Supports in the Game save for Venus and Shamrock
Her Defense is highest of Any Attack role in Game by far giving her the tankyness of a Def champ
-Her Weakness is her HP which is still respectable at Dracomorph levels.
Her Passive Alone shuts down and cripples most Arena teams and Ignoring Block Revive is even more damaging.
Her A1 Makes her one of the hardest hitting CB Champs in game when paired with Frozen Banshee which Right now 2 FB’s can make 30m keys on UNM with the right support. Free WM Procs all day long on a boss that frequently stuns?
A2- Does what Venus does (Only Champ in Game to Attack all enemies AND Def/Weak max) along with a with Wurmlin’s Strength Buff and an Apoth 30% Speed boost? Kay.. you just replaced 2-3 Champs Main Jobs and an Attack champ that gives the most powerful Defensive buff in the game (25% Straight damage reduction is better than any 60% Def boost will give in most cases and it wouldn’t take anything at all to pair her with a champ that gives those buffs with debuff blocker)
A3- Applies A rare buff Poison Sensitivity? That her A1 keeps active pretty much the entire battle now? With Block Buffs/Block Cooldowns?
–The End Result is a Champ that Replaces ALOT of people’s Roles if you have her. The fact she covers what you would need 2-3 Champions to do gives any team extra room to put Heroes that can complete some Really barely countable Teams. We don’t know what her booked state looks like but following just standard Raid Logic, its not hard to imagine them giving A1-3 100% chances at applies debuffs meaning its a resist fight with the most powerful debuffs in the game.
Her Passive completely Changes the Game in Arena and She’s arguably the tankiest Attack character with on paper the hardest hitting kit we have overall. If her Passive ends up having Books to reduce cooldown by the normal 2 turns like a lot of 7 turn moves have. She can easily cause infinite Revive Chains when paired with the right team. Her Bonkers Speed of 110 makes cycling turns really easy.
The [Block Butts] debuff typo is also in the patch notes description. https://ayumilove.net/raid-shadow-legends-patch-notes/#patch220-20200916
Definitely an arena killer. And Arbiter’s worst nightmare…lol
If it’s true that she cannot be summoned from shards then that’s fair, until someone already gets it.
Knowing Plarium, they’ll just nerf her like what they did with poor Rotos. What I’m most interested in right now is her storyline. I assumed you have a lot of ideas, Ayumilove? I can already see her as an eternal rival of the Arbiter of all champs.
@Gour and @whiteballpeen: I have corrected the typo. Thanks!
her a3 blocks “butts”? but i like butts
Block Butts is the best debuff in the game, new meta.
