    Someone told my Wife they had stories for the champions here. Her Favorite Champion is Martyr so she was excited to read the story. But She doesn’t have a Storyline. AyumiLove? Can I ask you to add Martyr’s Storyline for her if you can and or willing to do so? Please and Thank you on her Behalf.

    @saloufen: I think it was a mistake. I have updated Martyr masteries.

    @UnlimitedPain: I have corrected the Martyr mastery for Clan Boss (Kill Streak replaced with Methodical).

    I use my Martyr for Campaign farm on Nightmare 12-1

    My gears have Lifesteal set and Speed set. Glove, Chest, and Boots have Def% as main stat and Crit Rate, HP%, Speed and Resist as Sub Stats.
    For Accessories, I have HP as main stats and Def% as Sub Stats.

    She never fails 12-1 on Nightmare so definitely a great champ for solo Campaign farmer. I can literally fully level up 3 1-star for just 1 battle.

  6. saloufen

    I have the same question as UnlimitedPAin. Kill streak doesnt provide any help on CB masteries, so i can only imagine that it was placed there by mistake.

  7. UnlimitedPain

    Why would you choose Kill Streak over Methodical for CB masteries? If you could explain I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    Is it worth using both Martyr and Valkyrie on the same clan boss team?

    About your comments:

    Lasting gifts does not increase then turn meter
    Martyr has increase defense on her own
    You don’t need block debuffs, you can also use Skullscrusher and other strategies to avoid the stun

    @em: Martyr masteries are setup correctly as shown in the guide above. For Clan Boss and Dungeons, you will want more Defensive Stats to survive longer in battle. For Arena, Campaign and Faction Wars, you will want to increase your Accuracy with the help of Support Mastery Tree in order to successfully inflict Provoke and Decrease Defense debuffs on her targets. Enemy champion may have stack higher resistance to resist those debuff that prevents them from performing at their full potential.

    @Emeraldancient: You will need to pair Martyr with a champion that has Block Debuff and Increase Defense such as Marked (Rare Support Champion) to counter Ice Golem’s Frigid Vengeance if you are inflicting heavy direct damage to the boss. You can also inflict indirect damage via Poison Debuff with the help of Counter Attack buff to bypass Frigid Vengeance trigger/proc too when the boss reaches his turn.

    Hi Ayumi,
    i really like your content. I just realized that Martyrs Bastion of Faith skill is very dangerous for my team versus the ice golem, because it leads to him using his frigid vengeance multiple times in succesion and freezes my whole team, thats why i suggest to give her only 3 or 4 stars versus the ice golem because of the pontential danger for your own team.

  13. em

    Aren’t Arena and the Dungeon Masters changed?
    You’re the opposite of the other champ. Is that right?

  14. Ayumilove Post author

    @Zemadar: Thanks for pointing it out! I have updated Martyr’s mastery guide so she will use Offense and Defense Tree for Clan Boss and Dungeons, while for Arena, Campaign and Faction Wars you can opt for the Offense Tree and Support Tree.

  15. Zemadar

    I was very happy since I pulled her. My CB dmg incresed for a large amount. I started to play short time ago so im newb but Ive noticed, that my apothecary which I maxed out cuz I know hes one of best rare is not good with counter attack team… Ive read about setting up speed in ca team, but ive also seen yt movies shown that is myth when U use Rapid Response, Arcane Celerity, Lasting Gift and boost turn meter champ cuz U are so fast that ca buff is up almost all the time… What do U think about it?
    BHub said in his Martyr guide that thoose support masteries can brake up turn order, and U should pick other instead.

    @Tony: Players mostly uses Martyr instead of Valkyrie for Counter Attack Clan Boss Team since she is easier to speed-tune because she does not have any skills that boost her Turn Meter, which leads to outspeeding her own team. The good thing about Valkyrie is she provides a large amount of Shield that is very important in increasing your team survivability. Either way, go with the one you prefer most and use the other specifically for Arena. If you have your Valkyrie already level up and ascended, continue working on her for Clan Boss, just don’t pick any masteries that further increase her Turn Meter (e.g. Arcane Celerity, Cycle of Revenge, Rapid Response, Lasting Gifts). You other clan boss team mates should also be speed tuned to Valkyrie and current Clan Boss Speed (e.g. Brutal: 160, Nightmare: 170, UltraNM: 190)

    I pulled this unit just now, but I also have a Valkyrie. Should I still build this unit or focus on someone else? Not sure if running both this and Valkyrie is a good idea.
