Ninja Review

Ninja is a Legendary Attack Magic affinity champion from Shadowkin faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Ninja was introduced in Patch 4.40 on July 1st 2021 as special collaboration with Richard Belvins aka Ninja who is a well-knowned Twitch Streamer, Youtuber and professional gamer. Ninja can only be obtained for a limited time to all players for free by logging into the game for 7 days between July 16th 2021 and October 15th 2021 to acquire him! He will not be available to be summoned from Ancient Shards and Sacred Shards. Previously, Plarium released a champion based on a popular streamer who is known as Saito with Shadowkin theme but was placed into Undead Hordes faction.

Ninja’s Shatterbolt (A1 Skill) allows you to place Decrease Defense debuff on an enemy, so your champions can deal much more damage to the target. This is great for boss raiding especially there aren’t any minions (sidekicks) such as Clan Boss. In addition, Ninja has an amazing crowd control skill that freezes all enemies in battle with his Cyan Slash (A3 Skill), which makes him a great candidate to stall enemies while your team take some breathing room to recuperate. Ninja’s AoE Freeze is particularly useful for freezing the Dreadbombs in Bommal the Dreadhorn floors to reduce the damage done by the minion’s suicidal attacks by half! Apart from that, Ninja’s Hailburn (A2 Skill) is his signature move and he is the very first champion who has the HP Burn activation skill! Hailburn applies HP Burn debuff and activates them, it instantly deals damage based on Enemy MAX HP and Ignores 100% Defense, it can easily wipe out a single-target in a blink of an eye regardless how tanky they are!

Ninja also has a unique passive skill Escalation that boosts his stats whenever he combo his skills (A1, A2 and A3) on a single-target enemy. His Attack, Critical Rate and Critical Damage stats skyrocket when he completes all 3 skill attacks individually on the same enemy, which makes him one of the best champion for boss raiding. Ninja is a solid investment as a free champion if you could obtain him before the Time-Limited event ends!

Ninja Reference

This section covers Ninja’s build specialized for specific areas in Raid Shadow Legends.

Ninja All-Rounder Build

Here is Ninja’s artifacts and masteries by Ayumilove optimized for all content in the game as an all-rounder build! Ninja is equipped in Lifesteal Set and Accuracy Set to enable him to replenish his Health quickly whenever he attacks his enemies and provides him additional Accuracy stats to inflict his HP Burn debuff! The stats to prioritized on Ninja are Health, Speed, Accuracy, Critical Rate and Defense. Accuracy is a must for Ninja as his bulk of damage comes from his activation of HP Burn debuff. In addition, Ninja is pretty squishy, so having sufficient Health and Defense allows him to survive longer in battle. If you are building him for end game content such as Doom Tower Hard, you will need at least 350 Accuracy, 200+ Speed, 50~60K HP, 2~3K Defense to make him sufficiently beefy. Once you achieve these stats, then you can focus on other stats such as Attack, Critical Rate and Critical Damage to boost his base damage up.

Ninja Arena Nuker Build

Here is Ninja’s artifacts and masteries by YST optimized for Arena as an Arena Nuker! Ninja is equipped in Savage Set to enable him to ignore a portion of enemy defenses to deal maximum amount of damage to his opponent. The stats to prioritized on Ninja are Attack, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, Speed and Accuracy. You will only need 250 Accuracy for Dungeon, Doom Tower Normal and Faction Wars content for Ninja to land his HP Burn debuff. For Arena, Ninja needs to have at least 3K Attack, 100% Critical Rate, 200~300% Critical Damage to deal high amount of damage to his enemies. Speed is crucial too to allow him to take his turn first to use his AoE Freeze to crowd control them before his enemies begin their turn.

    @Tom Chapman Barros-Wing: Ninja is best used for activating HP Burn against a single-target enemy rather than multiple enemies in battlefield (e.g. Spider’s Den). Hence, if you want to speed run Doom Tower Boss such as Celestial Griffin, then he will be a good option. Ninja is particularly not that great in Spider’s Den since he does not apply AoE HP Burn and does not freeze spiderlings on auto-battle since his AI prioritizes the boss. If you are using him to manual a battle just to bypass a floor easily, then he is a good option to crowd control the spiderlings with his AoE Freeze.

  2. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Does this guy have synergy with Achak the Wendarin at all? I have Achak and Sicia Flametongue in my Spider 25 team, and I haven’t built Ninja yet. I wonder if he would do much for me at this point (end game), but then there’s always the promise of yet faster dungeon times. I don’t know. Anyone tested this?

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @James: When Ninja uses his default attack on Clan Boss, it will boost his Turn Meter by 15%.

  4. James

    Dumb question, but if you use him for clan boss, does his a1 fill his turn meter or does it not? M
    Maybe it’s gonna mess up my speedtuning since I’m building him out for clan boss.

  5. Mike Smith

    Other than slowly maxing him out with masteries or when you get 800 rubies, max out masteries and ascend up to 5. I don’t think he is overall strong anyways so my second game I run I took advantage of getting him after 7 days and use him to help farm and build stats on my starters. Works great at level 30 to collect stars. My main game at level 60 I do not use him and have him maxed at level 50 with all masteries. Good character to have to start to quickly build up others.

  6. Mohammad

    Im a early game player , i have my ninja on lvl 50 and 3* and 200 spd but other stats are not great , i have lifesteal and perception on him and got lucky with spd stats , i even have relentless gear but in early games it already get 2 turn each time , the downside is c.rate 30 and def 980 , is spd worth the less damage and def or not ? Shoul i max the gear becuse i play free and there are 4 lvl 12 gear i havnt maxed yet , is the spd worth the silver or should i change gear with some higher c.rate and def ?? Thank you

  7. John Young

    I really appreciate the resources you provide, thanks much. That being said, and perhaps a minor unimportant detail here but, the pic shows level 1/40 Ninja, Leggos start at rank 5, may need a post release pic for him there. Thanks again for all the great stuff though, helpful in so many of my choices and moves within the game.

  8. Tony Pesci

    Deadwood Jedi did a video on Ninja v Kael showing them in the exact same gear. The only difference was that Kael was fully booked, ascended and 6 star level 60 whereas Ninja was level 50 not ascended not booked naked. It was an eye opening video on just how good Ninja is for new and mid game players. I farmed so much silver that I “fixed” my Ninja to level 50 3 ascensions and no books with lifesteal and speed gear all at level 12. I have 1 ring as well. Now i’m currently farming with Ninja solo. He’s amazing.

  9. Elizabeth Heffner

    His main advantage seems to be that he has a very large fanbase that might join the game. As a very beginning of the game champion he’s great. Mission accomplished

  10. Shadow

    this guys vs Gurgoh which is a void leggo wins by all means better freeze ability shorter cooldown and waaaay better dps

  11. huge dong

    u may want to update the picture. u show a lvl 50 un ascended version.

  12. Mike Smith

    I have him at level 5 but until I can book him up I will not take him up to level 6. $$ solves everything which I will not pay for the books. Otherwise not a bad mid level Rare Champ.

  13. Odin's Frost Giant

    With all the non-5 star ratings… Is he really deserving of an overall S rating? Initially, I agreed with him as an S on paper, but after running him in various aspects of the game, IMHO he’s an A rated champ. Def not on par with other. s rated champs.

  14. Timbo 23

    @trigonomotry: I think that’s why the developers paired him with “counter-attack” gear

  15. Noone

    Webmaster: Google doesn’t appear to index this Ninja page for some reason. It doesn’t appear in Search results.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @RelativeNewbie: I tested Ninja along with HP Burn champions such as Drexthar Bloodtwin, Ultimate Galek and Mordeai. He does not bring much to the table apart from dealing high amount of damage. With the Spiderling’s in the way, he could not use all 3 hits on the boss. His skill ignores defense on the boss on auto and does not freeze the spiderlings, hence he could not crowd control the enemies. Plus, he does not apply HP Burn to all enemies in the battle, which makes the run really slow. However, the only way I see him beneficial is unless you are using Ninja on manual to get through the stages till Stage 20 to start farming. I couldn’t see the possibility of soloing with these 2 champions on auto at higher stages of Spiders Den, unless you could enlighten me on the strategy how to gear them to provide sufficient sustainance to survive the spiderling bites and Poison debuff.

  17. RelativeNewbie

    Not sure, but wouldn’t Ninja be better than 2 stars in Spider? He’d hit only the big spider with his a1 and a3 (big damage there) and his a2 would pop hp burns. Pairing him up with Drexthar…could conceivably solo Spider with just those two.

  18. Vindaloser

    As soon as I found out he was a self-obsessed youtuber who wasn’t even Oriental (there’s more to Japan than the Ninja) I used him as food…best thing I ever did…even if they buff him I stand by my principles…(Oh God PLEEAASE don’t buff him…!) xD

  19. Boz

    @LordWixx
    It’s not a legendary that you have 0.5-12% to get from a shard, it’s a single free legendary that everyone gets. Even now i see them everywhere already, and he is in half of my teams as well, it kills variety and team building in a game about variety and team building.
    Honestly the biggest disappointment in the game for me so far.

  20. JAY

    @MikeSmith Ninja is totally worth investing time and books on especially with WM on there. Instead of farming dungeons, use gems to unlock all masteries to have the beat Ninja experience.

  21. Nathan

    well excluding clan boss since each of its turns are a round

  22. Nathan

    @trigonometry are you thinking of turn instead of round? on a boss the round would be the entire fight.

  23. Trigonometry

    I don’t understand Ninja’s passive. How can you hit an enemy with all three of his active abilities in one round?

  24. Mike Smith

    I have several Epics I believe are better. Currently my Ninja is at level 50 with lifesteal / speed gear. Should I invest the time?… Level 60 is easy – no $$ involved but to make any character good you have to book them up and that will probably not happen as I will not buy tombs/books. First Legionary character I have gotten so far after several months of playing.

  25. LordWixx

    @Boz I am not sure about you saying a Legendary being better than several of your Epics is defeating the purpose of the game bruh.

  26. RaidF2PApprentice

    I’m using Retaliation and Resilience on Ninja. For the team I have Scyl of the Drakes, Miscreated Monster, Norog, Godseeker Aniri and Ninja. Retaliation on Ninja for the decrease defense factor, MCM, Godseeker Aniri and Scyl for survival then Norog for the damage reduction/unstoppable hits (Norog can’t be stopped because of passive.) Pretty good team honestly.

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @Bjorn: The first rating for Spider’s Den was based on reading his kit but after obtaining him and testing him out in Spider’s Den, Ninja is not really good in that area.

  28. Bjorn

    Did your rantings drop in the last day or two? Thought you had him high up on Spider’s Den but only 2 star now….

  29. Boz

    And that free legendary instantly makes several of my summoned epics inferior. Kinda defeats the point of the game.

  30. Dennis Champagne

    Ultimate Galek In mastery, war master only comes on when skill activated. Use Flawless Execution c.damage +20 as it’s continual n better out put as he needs Crit. Also doubles with 1st Skill c rate.5% Need to get better gear but c rate +43, c damage 109%, acc 128, Hp18.148, attack 1.398 Def. 836, Speed 41 Resist 86

  31. Michiel Ecker

    What do you think about using the reflex set for CB if I have a good enough healer and protection team around him?
    With the passive boosting damage, I would think having him max out his passive quickly provides a lot of damage right away thanks to the CD resets coming from the reflex set. Also, it increases the amount of times he uses Hailburn. I have him only at rank 5 lvl 50 (no books) with only half of his gear maxed and he already outperforms my maxed out Kael because he’s using Hailburn so often.

  32. Mr peewee

    Hi Ayumilove us this site all the time but I wanted to highlight opportunist in masteries 12 % damage with freeze as Ash yt has highlighted what do you think about 5he masteries.

  33. Pilgor01

    Anyone has tested him on Spider ? Like together with Drexthar and Achak ?

  34. Ayumilove Post author

    @BOOBA: Yes you can use Perception Set and Speed Set on Ninja provided you have a champion who could provide healing to him. Also, to further increase his survivability in Clan Boss, I would recommend having a Shield buff champion and Ally Protection champion. Otherwise, it will be difficult to sustain in a long battle as the Clan Boss gradually increases his damage. Lifesteal Set is always the recommended artifact set for Clan Boss battle for early-late game unless you have very good champions that can protect him.

  35. Ayumilove Post author

    @David: I don’t think it will help much since enemies can’t attack him if he is under Perfect Veil buff unless he is soloing the mobs. I would recommend using Lifesteal Set for early-mid game for Clan Boss and Dungeons against the Bosses so he can recover quickly from the Boss AoE attacks.

  36. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jeremiah: I have updated the mastery typo “Steadfast” to “Pinpoint Accuracy”. Thanks!

  37. Rezarnd

    @Steven i would wait until you have enough books to book him out. if you dont pull another great until then you could use the books on him. play around a few weeks.

  38. Steven

    I am a free to play at the start of the game I have 6 Legendary books and only Ninja is it worth it to waste the books on him. Or wait for me to pull another Legendary?

  39. David

    retaliation is a good set for this champion?

  40. Jeremiah

    UNDER SUPPORT MASTERIES YOU HAVE STEADFAST AS THE FIRST ONE WHEN THE PICTURE SHOWS PIN POINT ACCURACY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
    I AM UNAMUSED AS YOU CAN SEE

    TYPO LAST ONE

  41. Lord Tyral

    He’s a beast, lifesteal and perception armor great crit damage

  42. Lord Tyral

    Ninja is a beast with high crit damage and speed using live Steel and perception I was able to start running him on Brutal 12 six solo level very quickly he’s a beast.

  43. Sewersidle

    Any value in putting him in the Retaliation gear he came with?

  44. BOOBA

    If I’m just mid-game and only have an Apothecary for healing, can I get away with Perception and Speed sets and cranking up Ninja’s accuracy up high with some crit rate or should I just give him Perception + Lifesteal set?
    I’m referring to CB usage, btw

  45. JAY

    @BearKyn I used Ninja with Sicia, both good hp burners. Ninja’s A2 activates any and all HP burn debuffs already placed on the CB and immediately places another HP burn. Then I use Sicia’s A2 which instantly activates any HP burn for 1 turn.

    Great duo if you ask me

  46. JAY

    Should I unlock WM or GS mastery for Ninja?

  47. Skyoutofsky

    Just got him. Will he be good in a Stun Set?
    Thanks a lot for the great job on this site!

  48. Thraiix

    @BearKyn
    you can only have one active hp burn debuff however you can extend that to have multiple turns so having many people placing it wont be useful however having vizier or vogoth etc extend it several times will be useful as you will activate all the turns in one shot

  49. BearKyn

    A2:Hailburn Will this skill work with HP Burn from other Champions?
    Can you stack HP Burns?
    I have Kallia and Old Hermit Jorrg that I would like to try to team with Ninja to see how they play together. Even just Jorrg looks like a good second for Ninja

  50. Ayumilove Post author

    @The Doctor, @Avencia: Thanks for the input! I have updated the description for Ninja.

  51. The Doctor

    Hello, Plarium answered in a Q&A that Ninja is only attainable through the 7 day login event, and will not be available in shards now, or in the future. After October 15th, he is unattainable.

  52. Avencia

    He can’t be obtained from shards. The only way to obtain him is through the event
