Minaya is a Legendary Support Force affinity champion from the Banner Lords faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Her dual sword-wielding skills make her a formidable opponent in battle, but what sets her apart is her healing and support abilities. She is often paired with Khoronar, and together they make a powerful duo. This duo reminds me of the beauty and the beast fairytale story, which their character design is inspired from.
Minaya’s kit revolves around supporting and healing her team, always keeping an eye out for the lowest HP ally. Her A1 ability provides a continuous heal, while her A2 offers a base heal of 10,000HP. Additionally, her A3 heals all allies and places a Block Debuffs effect if they are under an Increase DEF buff. She also places a shield buff on any ally she fully heals, ensuring that they remain protected at all times.
While Minaya has strong multipliers that can be utilized for damage, most players will need her support and healing abilities to get the most out of her. She excels in most areas of the game as a great support champion that can keep your team alive.
One unique aspect of Minaya’s abilities is her partnership with Khoronar. When they are on the same team, Minaya will be revived if she falls in battle. This can be further improved with skill books, reducing the cooldown to just four turns. This partnership works especially well in dungeons, making Minaya a valuable addition to any team.
Overall, Minaya is a solid choice for players who need a reliable support champion to keep their team alive. Her healing and support abilities make her a valuable addition to any team, and her unique partnership with Khoronar makes her even more powerful. Whether you’re battling through dungeons or facing off against other players in the arena, Minaya is a champion that you can always count on.
Minaya High Resist Tanky Build
Below is a reference of the artifacts equipped on Minaya optimized for Arena, Doom Tower, and Faction Wars content. The important stats prioritized for Minaya are HP%, Defense, Resist, and Speed. Resist is to prevent Minaya from being crowd-controlled (e.g. Stun, Provoke, Freeze, Fear, Sleep) or being locked down (e.g. Block Active Skills, Increase Skill Duration), so she could heal her allies and apply Shield buff promptly. Speed is crucial to enable her to cycle through her skill cooldowns quickly and apply her Continuous Heal buff on allies more quickly to heal allies who are low in health. A decent amount of HP and Defense allows her to sustain in battle much longer against tougher opponents who inflict a devastating amount of damage.
Minaya Champion Lore
Fiercely independent, famously beautiful, and known for her kind heart and bountiful spirit, Minaya is the archetype of the perfect noblewoman according to the romantic ideals of Banner Lord chivalric epics. But as with any historical figure, various facts are selectively brought to the fore or gently omitted as the tale is told, and a person quite different from the real Minaya emerges from the patchwork of legend.
Most tellers of the tale introduce Minaya after describing the fall and Skinwalker curse of Khoronar, and his entrapment within his forsaken forest castle. She is hurt, exhausted, and vulnerable, having escaped an attempt on her life. Few storytellers care to elaborate on what led her to such a fate but some speculate that it was courtly politics, chauvinism, or oppressive traditions that set her to flight. Lords of Kaerok had vied fervently for her hand in marriage, not for the sake of love but for power and influence – and to capture a prize desired by all. But she wished to be guided by love, not politics, and held at bay the countless suitors who came to her with guileful and grasping hearts. Her refusal to compromise turned her admirers’ affections to jilted bitterness and for some, to burning hatred. A certain wicked baron dispatched assassins to end her, and Minaya was driven in desperation into Khoronar’s demesne. Thwarted and enraged, the baron seized her lands, using her prolonged absence as pretext. Despite Minaya’s story being their ideal of romantic love, the lords still pursue loveless political marriages to this day.
In Khoronar’s castle the Skinwalker nurses her back to health, but does not permit her to leave. The lonely and tormented Khoronar, desperate for any Human contact, had the good fortune of coming across a person of exceptional empathy, kindness, and courage both moral and physical. She was not afraid of his monstrous form, and she endured confinement at his hands because she knew what it felt like to live in fear of murderous pursuit. Neither Minaya nor Khoronar wanted either of their respective enemies to endanger the other. In their isolation together they found amity and, sure enough, love, for Khoronar the Skinwalker was much changed in temperament from Khoronar as he was as a heartless Human lord. Minaya pitied him and saw the goodness within him, which bloomed with every passing day they spent together.
But when he became aware of their deepening bond, Khoronar drove Minaya away in fury. He was not yet ready to be redeemed and forgive himself. When she tried to make her way back to her lands and her people, where her duties beckoned, she was attacked again by the baron’s assassins. Later seeing sense, Khoronar rushed to find Minaya and make amends, arriving in time to save her from the ambush. He was gravely wounded, so they retreated to his castle once more, and it was then that they finally confessed their love for each other.
Minaya would have stayed with her love in exile were it not for her loyalty to her subjects. Once Khoronar was healed, Minaya left to attend to her homeland and duties. There she discovered the baron who had tried to kill her had usurped her title, and began a quest to gather support and retake her seat. Khoronar, distraught at her long absence, had a vision of her death in battle. He raced to her ancestral keep and arrived just as Minaya and her loyalists were assaulting the court room she had once called her own. Khoronar was ripping apart the baron’s elite troops when the man fired his crossbow upon him, and Minaya dove into the path of its enchanted bolt, slain by it in Khoronar’s place. The eternal waltz that had weaved back and forth through the lives of Khoronar and Minaya had reached a bloody crescendo.
Every tale tells that this was not Minaya’s end. When Khoronar had slain the evil baron and all his men and finally paused to weep, the Arbiter appeared before him once more, and revived Minaya. The official texts of the Banner Lords say that the Arbiter also restored Khoronar to Human form, and that the two lovers lived happily ever after. Others claim both Minaya and Khoronar live on in Shards, and their tale continues beyond its fabled end.
Once upon a time, disaster struck the Kingdom of Kaerok. Year after year, unnatural drought reigned, crops withered and livestock fell for lack of pasture. Thousands died, tens of thousands more suffered greatly. Lords and peasants alike knew hunger and despaired. Throughout Kaerok, few lands remained untouched by famine – and the domain of Marquess Khoronar was one such haven. But the Marquess was arrogant, selfish, and unkind. One night, a malnourished old woman came to the castle and offered Khoronar a single beautiful rose in return for some food that would keep her alive. Disgusted by her pathetic and destitute appearance, the Marquess sneered and ordered the old woman thrown out of the gate. But before the guards could lay a hand on her, they were struck down by a bolt of lightning and their flesh turned to marble. The old woman’s guise shifted and swirled to reveal her true form, that of angelic beauty, stark noble features, and hair the colour of blazing flame. Recognizing the Arbiter for who she was, Khoronar tried to beg for forgiveness, but it was too late for she had seen his ugly, selfish nature hidden beneath a veneer of nobility. As punishment, the Arbiter transformed him into a hideous beast and bound his soul to a Shard so that he could never truly die. With a powerful spell placed on the castle, Khoronar was condemned to eternal life as a prisoner. Only if he were to learn to love would he ever be released for his curse. But as centuries passed the Marquess and his castle had been forgotten, lost to time in the depths of the enchanted woods. It appeared that Khoronar was doomed to an endless cycle of misery, unredeemed and unloved. It was only when a young Knight of Kaerok known as Minaya that hope was finally rekindled. Renowned for her kindness and beauty in equal measure, Minaya was widely beloved by her subjects and her peers. But there were those who grew jealous of her, and those bitter over her refusing courtship. A proud Baron whose advanced Minaya had spurned saw it as an insult that could only be washed away with blood. He sought allies among those who could not bear to see the young Knight’s virtue, and soon enough an assassin’s arrow was poised to pierce Minaya’s heart. By the grace of the Goddess, the assassin missed his mark, and Minaya escaped into the woods. For hours she wondered, and as wolves gathered at her back in hopes of easy prey, she finally came across the enchanted castle where the damned Marquess lived. At first, Khoronar intended to punish the trespasser. But seeing Minaya’s beauty and the courage she showed even when facing the horrible beast he had become, he stayed his ire. He still imprisoned Minaya, for she knew the way to the castle now, but treated her fairly. His servants, doomed to an existence of living statues, catered to Minaya’s every whim, and each night Khoronar, desperate for company after centuries of loneliness, would dine with her. Slowly, he realized, he was falling in love. Terrified by the notion, he flew into a fit of bestial fury and chased Minaya from the castle, ordering her to never return. This had almost cost the young Knight her life, for the assassins sent after her had not given up. By a stroke of misfortune, they fell on Minaya’s trail once more and would have surely been the end of her, were it not for Khoronar, remorseful of his display, following Minaya in hopes of earning her forgiveness. He came upon the assassins just as the ambush was sprung and managed to slay them all in the battle that followed. But Khoronar did not escape the fray unscathed himself, and a poisoned arrow struck his shoulder. Minaya hurried to his side and used all of her skill to treat the wound and purge the poison from her saviour’s blood. Weakened but alive, Khoronar and his companion made it back to the castle. It was then that their feelings had finally come to fruition, and Minaya too looked beyond the grisly facade to see a man repentant, and truly willing to make himself better. She did her best to guide him, to teach him that only in the love for others could Lumaya’s blessings be spread. And yet, thoughts of her people did not leave Minaya even when her own happiness was within her grasp. Though reluctant, Khoronar allowed her to visit her own domain and ensure a suitable castellan could be appointed to rule fairly in her stead while Minaya was absent. She made a promise to return in a week’s time and rode from the castle once more. Upon her arrival, Minaya found that her lands had been overtaken by the jealous Baron whose proposal she refused, and her people were bled dry and oppressed by draconian new laws. Furious over these abuses, Minaya called upon what allies she could to assist her, and the people of the land rose up to stand at their Lady’s side with whatever weapons they could afford. It was going to be a bloody siege indeed. Meanwhile, Khoronar found himself distraught – the week had passed, yet of Minaya there was no sign. He thought himself betrayed once more and nearly slipped into despair, were it not for a miracle. Though all the mirrors in his castle had long been shattered, shards of glass yet remained scattered in his chamber. One such shard came to life, glowing with arcane energy, and showed the bewildered Khoronar a terrible sight of his love dying in battle. Abandoning everything, Khoronar made haste to Minaya’s lands. He arrived whe the assault on the castle was already underway and threw himself into the fray. Awed by the arrival of such a powerful and strange ally, Minaya’s men-at-arms could do little but give way to the raging beast. But alas, it was perhaps this haste that led to the prophecy of the mirror being fulfilled. Having forced his way into the great hall of the castle, Khoronar came upon Minaya battling through the Baron’s personal guard. Seeing Minaya’s reaction, the usurper lifted his crossbow and let loose an enchanted bolt that was meant to slay Khoronar. But Minaya threw herself forth and took the strike in her beloved’s place. As her body fell to the ground, Khoronar fell into fury unlike anything he had experienced. Ignoring injury and pain, he tore into his foes and did not stop until all fell before him, and the treacherous Baron’s sword lay broken at last. Only then did Khoronar fall to his knees and wept over Minaya’s body. His grief was so strong that he did not realize he was no longer alone until a hand rested on his shoulder and his eyes were greeted by blinding light as he turned around. The Arbiter had personally descended onto the battlefield and sought Khoronar out. She revealed that she had been watching him closely, and his selfless actions were enough to earn forgiveness. What happened next is subject to interpretation and speculation in various renditions of the tale… It is known that the Arbiter used her power to bring Minaya back to life, allowing her and Khoronar to share and embrace and confess their love. Then, according to some, Khoronar’s beastly form faded away and he became a human once more. He and Minaya were wed and lived happily ever after. But there are storytellers who insist there is more to the tale. That the Arbiter did undo the curse, yet warned Khoronar that the suffering his callousness had inflicted could only be repaid with service. Unable to bear being separated from her love, Minaya too pledged her life to the Arbiter and bound her soul to a Shard of Champions willingly. And so it was, Khoronar and Minaya would spend eternity together, yet they would be called upon to fight in Lumaya’s name when the need was greatest – a price they both were more than willing to pay.
