Melga Steelgirdle is an Epic HP Spirit champion from Dwarves faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Melga Steelgirdle was released on January 14th 2020 in Patch 3.20. Her main role is to support her allies in battle by providing Shield buff to absorb the incoming damage from enemies as well as providing Continuous Heal buff to heal them every turn the allies take. Apart from that, she could also revive any allies who have fallen, so they can continue to fight and win the battle!

    I have been working upon this stout lil Dwarf now for a bit of time, building from HP Commons to HP Uncommon; booking w/ dupes whenever possible. Uncommon to Rare (same routine). HP Rares’ to HP Epics’. I have two HP Epic Toons’ and 1 Rare fully booked following aforementioned guide and working upon my last package, but I think she could probably be far better than several Legendary IGN’s.

  2. Someone

    Just pulled her from a sacred and I’m really glad because she’s a great epic!

  3. Ralf

    What is the exact recommendation for Melga? Resistance or Resiliance artifacts?

  4. RTizzle222

    Melga is a beast. I’ve beaten all doom tower hard rotations and she is in every single team on every floor and every boss. If you have this Epic build her immediately.

  5. Slayer

    IMO every Faction needs a reviver as it makes sustaining progress so much easier. I have just got Melga so I am happy that at last my Dwarves now have a reviver on the team. Now I can take them through to the top at last instead of shedding lives along the way and not making it. Ok, so she can be beaten by others in various ways and I am not sure I would use her in a mixed team, but I am happy to have a reviver on the Dwarf team at last.

    @johannes kure

    Very important to build her right or you totally won’t get it. She needs a boatload of hp and defense. (50-60 thousand hp and at least 3k def. Book her out and masteries like cycle of revenge and timeley intervention and lasting gifts. A fully upgraded and well built Melga is a force. She is leagues better with her revive than Scyl of the drakes. Gorgorab is good though. Outfit her in 6 star relentless and make sure her speed is solid and the gigantic shield (based on HER max hp) and 15% regen is pretty much always up on your team and revive always on tap… She is my best support champ on the squad, though I just pulled a runekeeper Dazdurk and am excited about building him. Am thinking there is synergy between him and Melga’s kits though, so he’s not exactly replacing her.

  7. johannes kure

    I don’t get how she is supposed to be an S tier champion.

    Hear me out: First off i believe her spot is A tier. You have many champions like gorgorab or scyl who does excellent job at reviving along with a lot of other champions. It’s not like this champion is exceptional at all. I also don’t think she really brings that much to the table, as most players will get scyl of the drakes/ already have her, i feel like melga is an inferior version in all aspects of the game except faction wars where she is an absolute carry.

    What REALLY made me curious is the 5 star rating on clanboss which really made me rethink her kit, but after looking at it for a good 5minutes trying to figure out what could be so good to make her 5 star rated i just don’t see it. Revive is not something that’s generally good in clanboss, if your team needs reviving that just means your team is not build properly, her A2 would be the only decent ability in clanboss but only bringing that to the table, i dont see how she holds up.

    Really looking for some feedback.

  8. johannes kure

    I simply cannot wrap my head around her being this great in so many places, sure her kit is awesome. But having Gorgorab or scyl i don’t see where she shines other than faction wars. Every player can get scyl at some point and i feel like scyl is just better in almost every way.

    Also can someone explain why she is 5 stars in clanboss? Looking at her kit i really can’t see it, a 3 at most i would give her.

  9. BigSyf

    @Obito What the heck, She’s carried so many times, literally a must have in most of my team compositions.

  10. Kemosabe

    Obito you are wrong, if build right she is S tier for the current bosses in stage 120 DT hard. You can easily duo Frost spider 120 hard with her

  11. Gohei27

    @ayumilove Melga doesn’t get any accuracy so evil eye is wasted on her.

  12. Obito

    She seems very good on paper, unfortunately doesn’t meet the expectations in game
    She is slow, like c’mon it takes her 5 sec to attain an enemy
    Her A1 is trash, no damage and only remove one random debuff…
    She likes to read, a lot… If you are unlucky you will spend 8 epic books on her crapy A1
    Her shield + continuous heal is nice but you prefer to have a cleanse + heal in late game
    Reviving 2 allies seems insane but 99% of the time you only need to revive one, plus the cooldown is too long
    Campaign = 3 stars (good until nightmare)
    Dungeons = 2 stars, only good for minotaur, arcane and force keep, terrible everywhere else
    factions wars = 3 stars
    doom tower = 3 stars

  13. NajTreb

    Minor text error:
    In the review text is stated that Melga was introduced in 2020, while according to the release notes she was added in 2021.

    Btw, Melga definately looks like a keeper.
    @AyumiLove: Keep up the good work!

  14. Rogueswan

    I can confirm that the A1 debuff can proc on a counter attack.

  15. Matt

    Just started playing about 9 days ago and managed to get her and Fahrakin the Fat. I wasn’t planning on putting any effort into this game, but these 2 champions have been really good, and together with Apothecary and Kael, have been helping me progress so much further than I was able to before.
    I don’t know anything about mid or late game stuff as my account is only level 30; but for hard campaigns and the first half of all the dungeons, Melga has carried. She also makes it easier to XP farm food champions, as she keeps Kael alive, while he does all the work.

  16. Sintel

    She has 5 stars in clan boss, I would agree on but beware. Her dumb AI somehow prioritises her A1 over her A2 (even when no ally has a debuff). I can’t wait for the AI skill priorities update so we can fix this kind of weird stuff ourselves

  17. Rogueswan

    @Lordbutkiss I’m hoping so. When I get a chance I will test her with Martyr and report back

  18. Lordbutkiss

    If you put here in counter team would here A1 debuff try every counter?

  19. Huch

    Megan has some drawbacks such as her Aura but great addition to the dwarf faction team. Had whole team in lifestyle gear and was still not progressing pulled her and bucket head same weekend and has moved my team very far forward. Runs are smooth and easy progressed to 18 but lacking a good dps to go any farther. Hopefully I’ll pull longbraids or legendary at some point but she is keeping 3 rares and rest of team up and going on 17 faction. Not that good in arena in my opinion buffs too easy to cleanse off.

  20. Timbo 23

    Her aura skill is a joke
