Marquess Review

Marquess is a Rare Defense Spirit champion from Demonspawn faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Marquess can be build for 2 different roles, which are damage dealer or debuffer. She has very high damage multiplier on all her skills, which makes her a great candidate to be built as a defensive nuker. In addition, she has a wide variety of debuffing capabilities, which are useful for early game.

However, her debuffing capabilities are lackluster as the debuff inflicted are mini version and have low chance of applying them. Having said that, she can be a debuffer placeholder until you find a better champion to replace her for that role. Then, you can repurpose her as your Spirit affinity damage nuker for all content in the game!

Marquess Disdainful Swipe (A1 Skill) is her default attack that has a 30% chance of applying Decrease Attack debuff. It is quite useful early game against bosses to decrease their overall damage output. Marquess Crush the Weak (A2 Skill) is her signature skill that deals high amount of damage on enemies who has Weaken debuff! This skill has a 50% chance of applying AoE Weaken debuff on enemies upon fully booked. It’s recommended to pair her with a AoE Weaken debuffer champion to apply the debuff before Marquess attacks them with this skill to maximize damage output. In addition, her Freeze Solid (A3 Skill) has a 100% chance of freezing a single enemy, which is decent to crowd control a difficult enemy or reduce the damage dealt by Dreadbomb in Bommal the Dreadhorn floors. Finally, she has a useful Aura that boost allies defenses in Faction Crypts.

Overall, Marquess is an excellent Rare champion who you could use as a damage dealer from early-mid-late game against Force affinity champion if you lack champions to counter them.

Marquess Reference

This section covers Marquess build specialized for specific areas in Raid Shadow Legends.

Marquess Arena Nuker Build

Here is Marquess artifacts and masteries optimized by Neo as a damage dealer for Arena, Dungeons, Doom Tower and Faction Wars. This build is showcased in MtgJedi video! Marquess is equipped with Savage Set and Critical Damage Set. Savage Set enables her to ignore a portion of enemy defense while Critical Damage Set boost her Critical Damage stats significantly. The stats prioritized for Marquess are Defense, Critical Rate, Critical Damage and Speed to deal high amount of damage to 1 shot enemies! To fully unleash her damage output potential, you will need to pair her with an AoE Weaken debuff champion, so she can use her Crush the Weak (A2 Skill) to deal extra damage on enemies who have Weaken debuff!

    Rank F with 5* Arena is for sure a mistake, right? Compare eg with Acolyte who has no more than 2*, but Rank C !!?? Two mistakes, I mean.

  2. DeftValkyrie

    I’m confused as to why this champion is rated F when the review of her sounds decent. Am I missing something?

  3. Pippo Baudo

    Why Fatal set on a DEF champion?? the +15% ATK is useless in this case.

  4. Simo

    Comment below are very outdated. I use my savage Marquess in normal Hydra and believe me or not she do a lot of dmg. Her a3 nuke hard her aoe a2 with defense down and weaken is strong as legendary champion. I was actually surprised her a1 do also very strong dmg . If you have someone to provide defense down and weaken on clan boss ally attack and counter attack she will give you good numbers on Nightmare CB. Low base speed is a big problem on her.


    This post was very helpful. Now to see who dishes out more damage Cleopterix or Marquess.

  6. Peter H

    Confused why she’s in F rank??

    @fr34kyg: I have corrected the description from Attack to Defense. Thanks!

  8. fr34kyg

    “The stats prioritized for Marquess are Attack, Critical Rate, Critical Damage and Speed to deal high amount of damage to 1 shot enemies!”

    Stills says Attack @Ayumilove as of 11/17/2021.

  9. Ayumilove Post author

    @C: I have updated Marquess Stats Priority from ATK% to DEF%. Thanks for the correction!

  10. C

    In Stats Priority, the ATK% should be defense. Marquess gets nothing out of attack stats.

    Damage Dealer: DEF%, C.RATE, C.DMG, SPD

  11. Edward

    Great champion, huge hp/defense.
    High damage multipliers, strikes twice with the A2 when weaken lands. Seriously to be considered an option on campaign trough brutal.

  12. Sam

    @Damien because it’s only a 25% DA. It’s better than nothing, but not going to cut it by the time you get to higher CB levels.

  13. Dark Lord Dog

    She’s not used for fusion any longer

  14. Damien

    This is the only A1 Decrease Attack Champion that I have. With A1 DA I thought she would be OK for CB with my Skullcrusher, and she has A2 weaken. Why is she rated so low for Clan Boss

  15. Minh

    Wow thats better defense multiplier than most Epic defenders, ima try leveling her

  16. Sam

    Those are solid multipliers, considering her for my new account that just pulled her. Was she buffed after the negative reviews? Or still trash?

  17. Vino

    This champ is not horrible but not great either. For Faction War I used until I passed the first boss. I have to say more Diabolists might be a better choice since why use these when you have a free farmable one?

  18. Dargentina

    With the exception of a couple Void Demons, the Rare demonspawn are worthless.

    What’s worst, there’s very few of them (but devs keep adding Bannerlords and Sacred Order…), so establishing a decent team for Faction Wars is really hard, unless you’re lucky to score Epics or Legendaries.

    Marquess is pretty bad, buuut might be useable with the two hounds (Hellfang and Hound Spawn), mostly because you need the two damned dogs to actually do something useful, and Marquess more or less sort of matches their skills. Sort of.

    I guess Marquess can be of use with a Stun/Acc, and bring Erynies (who can be crafted) to the team to raise the debuff output. The remaining one could be Tainix Hateflower (which we get for free) for some healing, or Diabolist to speed up team (and try to strike enemies faster with debuffs).

    But meh.
    Honestly, it is probably easier to make a workable easy Uncommon team, rather than trying to do something with the rares.

  19. RapTapChrisPratt

    She has a solid 4 across the board. Why does this page rate her so low?

  20. BenWeb

    Ash rates this champion one of the top 3 demonspawn rares. Game ratings are also high. If you’re using in faction wars (and don’t have another weaken demonspawn) are you sure this shouldn’t have higher ratings?

  21. Thylar Dar

    I don’t agree with these ratings. For example, in Spider, she shows a good area atack.
    She won’t be a star, but in early stages i think may be useful.
    I’m talking about a 3 range hero… taking that from starting point, at level 50 can be very useful, at least in Spider.
    I think it will be more accurate 3 stars rating, not as bad as you say, and not as good as it’s shown on game stats.

  22. Daniel Shay Duffy

    I just drew Marquess and other junk on what’s suppose to be increased summons. It’s pure hooey. But i did get hex weaver the other day. she looks okay. I’m hearing her up and what do you another pos down the line. So I skill her up once. Still havnt used her but I’m building her for the show. I gotta look again. Marquess at firs glance seems, yaeh you know blah. thanks raid. Oh and she is way overrated in the app just going by her skills. I’ve never come up against her in Arena so that tells me she food. Or faction war toss away. Oh well level 50 and I have drawn 1 leagendary from 250 blues shards +. Nothing from voids to write home about and nothing from sacred to write home for. I’m due. Maybe not now. Lmao

  23. Ayumilove Post author

    @sora: Yeah. I have included Maruquess equipment guide and mastery guide for players who are interested in building her for Faction Wars.

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @Joe: Thanks for pointing out the missing space between the star and Force Keep. I have corrected the error.

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ivonne Franco: Defense Sets are preferable on Defense Role champion such as Marquess. I highly recommend not to invest resources in this champion as her usefulness will be shortlived as she offers the smaller version of Weaken debuff and Decrease Attack debuff triggered at a low success rate.

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @AnthroAnt: It could probably be the players rated this champion with all 5 stars for their fodders.

  27. sora

    Beautiful design, but F ranking. Feelsbadman

  28. Joe

    Thanks for putting this site together it has been a lifesaver. I was noticing that you are missing a space before Force Keep in the ratings above. Any plans to change that?

  29. AdmiralLoda

    If she’s really Terrible one .. I make alot of mistake :’

  30. AnthroAnt

    The in-app ratings for Marquess are a lot hight — 4.6 for both Arena O and D, 4.7 Campaign. Are we sure this is a Terrible hero? Admittedly, I’m not exactly sure why she is rated that high in the app…

  31. Ivonne Franco

    Any artifact preferences?

  32. Ayumilove Post author

    @Marcus Gallagher: Thanks for your input. I have updated Marquess ratings.

  33. Marcus Gallagher

    How is she terrible if she is 5 star in all of the above apart from one in which she is 4 star. Doesnt make sense.
