    For her importance in the budget unkillable CB team with maneater, she deserves to be at least an A tier rare, if not S tier. I would put her as A tier.

    Other B tier rares are mostly food and completely useless pretty much everywhere. Banshee, Magus, Seducer, Scrapper….how can they be in the same tier as Painkeeper, who is a central component of an unkillable CB team, which unlocks the opportunity to get some of the best items in the game?

    Do NOT feed Painkeeper, bc she’s S tier if you have or ever pull maneater.

  2. Pain Eater

    she is listed under the B-ranks lol

  3. Bob

    Sorry, I was wrong. Delete comment.

  4. Bob

    Rick, it still costs me 800 gems.

  5. kent

    my opinion: after getting this champ several times still have not changed my opinion, but with no 5* ratings and 15 tomes, way too much trouble to work with

  6. RelativeNewbie

    Pretty sure she could be paired with Helicath as much as with Maneater.

  7. Rick

    Ayumi you said resetting skills cost 800 gems after the free one. That’s incorrect. It’s 150 gems.
    Painkeeper is an excellent champion and I think you underrate her.

  8. Kijatra

    Hi very new to this but why so much speed for her. On Auto I keep seeing her use A2 or A3 off the bat and if she has high speed and goes first both are a waste? She needs to last in the team for A3 to work best. What am I?

  9. jim

    Yes, two Pain Keepers reduce each others cooldowns.

  10. Cpasfautpapou

    With 2 Pain Keppers. the A3 of the second works on the A3 of the first ?

  11. Xotai

    Just completed Doom Tower Secret Room 5 Normal with Scrapper, Dagger, Geargrinder, Coldheart, and Pain Keeper. The last one standing was Pain Keeper and cleared the last round all alone. Coldheart was not good, too squishy which was a surprise.

    Regarding Pain Keeper, leveled at 60, Fully Booked and Ascended, and wearing 2 sets Immortal and 1 set speed. Outstanding character.

  12. Timbo23

    Really stupid that her skills all base differently, one from atk,hp and atk,def……lose, lose

  13. Timbo23

    @jim…. not “accidently” misleading……Im pretty sure it was on purpose

  14. Keep

    Doing faction war. Pain Keeper could be super good in this. Dark elves are lack of healer, she could be the great option. I took her to level 21 with level 40, Build her fast and high HP. Super useful at end game.

  15. Caracora

    The subsequent mastery resets cost 150 gems.
    Purchasing all scrolls for gems costs 800 gems.
    I guessed you mixed those two up.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @Phillip Butler: Yes, you can reset the champion’s mastery in the Champion Mastery Window for free for the first time, and subsequent reset will cost 800 gems! The reset mastery button is located at the top of the mastery tree (e.g. The reset icon is located on the right side of the title “Defense”, if you have chosen some Defense masteries under that Defense Tree).

  17. Phillip Butler

    so what if you had no idea of this site and setup was wrong with masteries can you remove them and start again

  18. Ayumilove Post author

    @CFisher: I have added Painkeeper mastery used for Bateater Clan Boss team setup 🙂

  19. CFisher

    Can you put up a BatEater masteries?

  20. craig down


    when a skill has Heal +x% in this case it’s worked out like this

    15+35% which is 5.25 so it comes out as 20.25% not 50%

    so 49310+20.25% is 9985.275 heal

  21. Jim

    Thanks much for maintaining this site ! It is a great resource. Best one in my opinion.

    I am juicing this champion up with HP to use in FW but it seems that there are two provisos. First, the healing books don’t seem to change 15% to 20%, 25%, etc. Instead they only increase the 15% by 5% = .15 * 1.05=.1575 or 15.75%. This is also true of the shield books.

    The second proviso is that the final multiplier seems only to apply to the max HP of the stock champion, not including additional HP added by artifacts like a level 16 HP % chest plate, etc.

    My PK is fully booked and at lvl 53 at the moment. Total HP from the stock champion is 18,150. Total HP with artifacts is 49,310. With books, my heals should be 15+35=50% of 49,310 = 24,665.

    My actual heals are 10,484, which is only 21% of my total max HP.

    This makes sense if you figure .15 base * 1.35 Books = .21, or 21%.

    It is 57% of the stock HP of 18,150 – a difference probably accounted for by masteries. I am not sure if this is a glitch with the game but is instead an accidentally misleading description of the skill rules for the character skills in the game since it is a problem on other champions. The same is true of the shields for Scrapper for example.

    In videos for Pain Keeper it mentions that you can book the shields up to 50%, and I have seen this on other mentions and videos for other champions. This is not true for any I have run the numbers on. The books are only small additional multipliers of a multiplier, not additive to the multiplier. It would be nice if the descriptions gave you the actual additive effects instead of looking much bigger than the actual effect because of the method of calculation.

  22. adu

    I am a beginner. I’m in the process of forming an Unkillable party with one Maneater. Please tell me about the amount of recovery of skill A2. Is “up to 15% of everyone” the HP of each hero? Or will it evenly recover 15% of everyone’s total HP? I’m imitating ColdBrew’s video, but around the 20th turn of UNM, A2 recovers a little less than the hero who receives stun, and Painkeeper is killed. HP 51,587 ATK 2,173 DEF 1,609 Kael does not have Life Drinker. How can I increase the amount of Painkeeper’s recovery in A2?

  23. Hobomachine

    @Ayumilove I’m sure you’re busy, but just wanted to follow up on my comment below. Thanks!

  24. Hobomachine

    If pairing with Seer and Mage, would putting her in a reflex set be worth it? Her in reflex to proc either the heal OR the combat tactics skill with Mage in a shield set? Or would it be more worth it to put her in the shield set and put Mage in 3 speed sets?

  25. Jackwagon

    what about using resilience or deflections sets with this one? or maybe even curing?

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @Aldoant Moertianto: Champion Tier list can be found at
    Champions that are Common and Uncommon can be use as fodder (sacrificed to rank up champions) without any issues.
    Champions that are Rare and F Rank can be sacrificed to rank up champions.
    Champions that are Epic and Legendary are not to be sacrificed unless you are a whale (P2W – Play to Win player).
    You can check from the Champions rating. If they have 4-5 star in a particular area that you have usage for them, then you can keep hold on them as they can help you in those areas.

  27. Aldoant Moertianto

    Oh, i see…

    Is there any tier list for this game heroes?
    Like there is so much hero, some of 3* potential and others. I’m very confused when it comes to sacrificing some heroes 🙁

  28. Ayumilove Post author

    @Aldoant Moertianto: They are abbreviations to make it easy to identify the champion faction, rarity, role type and affinity. For example:
    1. DE-RHV = Dark Elves – Rare HP Void.
    2. BL-RAS = Banner Lords – Rare Attack Spirit.
    3. UH-RAM = Undead Hordes – Rare Attack Magic.

  29. Aldoant Moertianto

    What is the meaning of DE-RHV, BL-RAS, UH-RAM, and etc.? is that explaining something?

  30. LinePK

    Would Deflection Set work well on her?

  31. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    @Dave C and Wiley Man: Agreed that it can be a buff, depending on the situation. For example, in the Budget Unkillable setup (one Maneater, one Painkeeper) the change in Painkeeper’s A2 makes this much setup easier to do, because the Clan Boss targets the champion with the lowest percentage of their Max hp at any given time–so you want the Painkeeper to be healing everybody, but healing the champion who has the highest Max hp the LEAST compared to their Max hp (they’ll be the slowest in this setup, so at the moment the CB’s stun arrives, they’re the only one who still has the Maneater’s Unkillable and Block Debuffs buffs on them–and even so, they’ll be targeted if they currently have the lowest % of Max hp at that moment. For most of the fight, the whole team is at 1 hp, but your stun soaker “slowboi” has the hightest Max hp, so that 1 hp is the lowest PERCENTAGE of Max hp on the team).

    Agreed, though, that if you just want to keep healing Hakkorhn Smashlord or Miscreated Monster or Mountain King or somebody beefy like that–yeah, you’re losing out here.

  32. WileyMan

    @Dave C: The switch to using Painkeeper’s HP for healing is not a nerf; it is a buff. Painkeeper is an HP Champion with a very high base HP that you will also build with HP-focused gear. That will give significantly bigger heals than healing based on most other champions’ HP.

  33. WileyMan

    @Bladehold: When ascended to 3* or greater, her A2 switches to healing “all allies”. Every page on this site lists the 3* ascended auras/skills when there is an ascension upgrade.

  34. Bladehold

    pain keeper appears to have been changed, live a2 now reads

    “Attacks all enemies, then heals this champion by 15% of this champion’s Max HP”

    Damage based on [HP][ATK]

    with level 2-8, heal +5, heal+5, damage +5, Heal +10, Heal+15, Damage +15, Cooldown -1.

  35. Begone!

    I have my Pain Keeper in a Reflex set, which triggers more often Combat tactics: a big help for the rest of the team.

  36. Destroyer39

    Ash did a great Pain Keeper guide yesterday (or the day before) that you might want to consider adding!

  37. Dave C

    such bs that plarium keeps nerfing rares…
