Reinbeast Review

Raid Shadow Legends – Reinbeast is an Epic Defense Force affinity champion from Skinwalkers faction. He is obtainable from Ancient Shard and Sacred Shard. He is renowned for his strong survivability skills where his A1 provides Continuous Heal to himself or ally who is severely wounded and protecting an ally with his large shield to prevent them from dying too soon. Reinbeast was introduced in Raid Shadow Legends on December 20th 2018 (Patch 0.13.3) as part of the Christmas Event alongside with Sir Nicholas, Frostbringer and Jinglehunter!

Champion Purpose

  • Reinbeast is a hybrid of defender and support champion who protects his allies with Continuous Heal and Shield buff while being able to tank damage with his massive Defense stats!
  • Reinbeast A1 skill “Caning” has a unique ability that applies 15% Continuous Heal buff to the ally who has the lowest HP (Health aka Hit Points) in the battle. This makes him a good candidate to protect allies who is close to death, especially the ones that could apply AoE Provoke debuff to all enemies.
  • Reinbeast A2 skill “Open Slay” deals twice the amount of damage of his A1 and revives a random ally whenever this skill is able to kill an enemy. To allow this skill to perform the killing blow, Reinbeast is recommended to be built with a high amount of Critical Rate, so he could take advantage of the Critical Damage to deal extra damage. This skill is vital in getting 3 Stars in all stages of Faction Wars as there is no other reviver champion in Skinwalker faction at the time of this written review. Revive a fallen ally when there is only 1 remaining enemy in the battle who is close to death with this skill. Otherwise, the fallen ally will die again from enemy brutal attacks especially the squishy champions who have low HP/Defense.
  • Reinbeast A3 skill “It Glows” is a unique passive skill that no other champion has in the game. It provides a Shield Buff to an ally whenever they are under attack with a 2 turn skill cooldown. Having him built with a decent amount of Speed will allow him to quickly cooldown this passive skill to be re-activated again!

Champion Synergy

  • Reinbeast pairs well with another tanker who applies Provoke such as Vogoth and Dhukk the Pierced to provide them with some sustainability when many enemies are targetting them. He could also help Skytouched Shaman to quickly recover her health when it dips at dangerous levels. This prevent enemies from instantly wiping her out from the battle when her health is low and the Revive on Death buff has expired.

Champion Limitation

  • Reinbeast A3 Skill “It Glows” does not protect himself with Shield buff after the implementation of Patch 1.12 to nerf his passive skill. Reason being, many players complained that he was overpowered when fighting against him in Arena as he was kinda unkillable with the aid of Continuous Heal and Shield buff. Reinbeast was able to solo or stalemate the entire Arena Offense team without a sweat since he can recover very quickly. With the nerf in placed, fewer players have used him in Arena Defense. If you have 2 Reinbeast, you can use them in a team where they can protect one another with Shield buff.

Reinbeast Reference

Arena, Campaign, Dungeons, Doom Tower, Faction Wars

Below is a reference of the artifacts equipped on Reinbeast used in all areas of the game. Reinbeast is equipped with Retaliation Set and Defense Set. Retaliation Set enables Reinbeast to use his A1 more often to apply more Continuous Heal on himself or ally who is severely injured by enemies attacks. These artifacts have high HP%, DEF%, C.RATE, RESIST and SPD stats. HP% stat allows Reinbeast to generate a large shield to protect an ally who is under attack. DEF% stat allows Reinbeast to increase his overall damage output and decreases the damage intake from enemy attacks. RESIST stat provides him protection against any debuff placed by the enemies, so he could last longer in battle and revive any fallen enemies without interference. C.RATE stat enables Reinbeast to deal higher amount of damage as well as being able to perform the killing blow with his A2 skill “Open Slay” to revive a fallen ally.

Reinbeast Storyline

An outcast among outcasts, the Reinbeast’s very survival is as much a miracle as it is a testament to his strength and determination. Born in the darkest depths of the Durkham Forest on a cold winter morning, he was immediately marked by the strange colour of his coat and a glowing red nose. All through his childhood, the Reinbeast had to fight all those who would see him cast out. Yet beatings and cruelty only hardened the poor creature and taught him to stand tall and proud no matter the hardship. But on one stormy night, when the wind howled like a wounded dragon among the twisted and gnarled trees of Durkham, and a terrible blizzard swept the land, his fate was changed forever. Forced out into the night by his tribe’s chief on a fool’s errand that was no doubt meant to see him dead, the Reinbeast came across a most confusing sight. A sleigh full of strange items stood there, encased by ice, and a man clad in armour of silver and red worked tirelessly to fix the damage. A small pack of reindeers shivered at his side, cold and tired, no longer able to pull the heavy carriage. Though suspicious at first, the Reinbeast was moved by the pure light that seemed to be emanating from that mysterious human, and the care he showed in trying to help his exhausted steeds. He approached, cautiously, and offered help in a broken Common tongue. To his surprise, the man’s own words boomed within his mind loud and clear, as if spoken by one of his own people. Sir Nicholas, as the strange introduced himself, was most grateful for the aid. And with the Reinbeast now placed in the lead, his own reindeers finally managed to free the sleigh and press on their way. With magic beyond imagining, they went across Teleria in a single night to reward the just and punish the wicked, with the Reinbeast’s glowing nose leading their way. It was no surprise that when offered a single wish for his selfless help, the Reinbeast asked to remain in Sir Nicholas’ service – and thus he has remained for centuries, pulling the mighty sleigh through blizzards and storms, and fighting at Sir Nicholas’ side when such a need arose.

    I am facing 2 Reinbeasts at Felwin’s Gage (Nightmare, Level 7, Wave 2). They do support each other well, and I’m trying to beat them with just 2 characters. I am mid-game, so my only built-up legendary champ is Ninja. I tried Balthus Drauglord (as a complete tank) and Adriel (who can do some damage. This resulted in a stalemate. Any advice on how to approach these two?

  2. Tanuvan

    @Zarvon The Scarab steals all buffs when it’s his turn, so unless you have a serris or another debuffer, it would be counterproductive because he would heal any dmg not taken away with Decrease Max Hp.

  3. Noone

    If you’re wondering why the recommended builds and why some are still quite enthusiastic about Reinbeast watch this:

  4. Zarvon

    Has anyone tested Reinbeast in Hard Scarab King? At least on paper, it looks like he could be pretty effective. I have one fully booked at level 50 and might try it.

  5. MrShovel

    Honestly, 2 reinbeasts would wreck every dungeon in the game. Imagine literally not being able to die. Even better with 5 of them.

  6. HW3

    Reinbeast got my team of epics and rares through to 63 stars in faction wars. I used to dread facing skinwalker faction wars. I still won’t love it, but at least I did get it finished thanks to this guy.

    @MtgJedi: I have added your Reinbeast video into the page above!

    @philip cordis: Reinbeast is still a viable champion especially in Faction Wars when you are trying to achieve 3 stars in all stages without having a champion dying. Reason being, Reinbeast is the only champion who can revive a champion in Skinwalker Faction Wars as of this time of writing. I have him built with high resist stats to prevent any Bombs or dangerous debuff that could take out Reinbeast, so he could revive any dead allies who got struck by enemies fatal hit.

  9. philip cordis

    Also what would make this guy a viable reviver would be if he placed a debuff that would revive an ally when you kill them. It would be the only debuff revive in game but would be cool. Would half to be two turns. I would be ok with a debuff or make his A2 hit a lot harder.

  10. philip cordis

    I would love if they did some rework on champions for new accounts. I just pulled him on a free to play and it would be great if he had some synergy with another champ. I will be taking him to 5* but that will be all unless they do some reworks of champs he is a vault hero. With all the new ones it really looks like he is 5* food is all.

    @Gr8Yang: I have updated Reinbeast’s rating and ranking:
    1. Arena Offense (5 star to 4 star)
    2. Arena Defense (5 star to 4 star)
    3. Dragon’s Lair (5 star to 4 star)
    4. Ice Golem (5 star to 4 star)
    5. Magic Keep (4 star to 3 star)
    6. Force Keep (4 star to 3 star)
    7. Updating Ranking (Rank A to Rank B)

  12. Gr8Yang

    @Ayumilove I strongly advise you re-appraise the ratings of Reinbeast. I think many five star ratings that you gave him are no longer justified, particularly the Arena 5-star ratings. How many gamers are you meeting at the Arena still using Reinbeast? Scarcely. I have barely met any. His A2 is virtually useless, as it is so weak that the odds to use it to kill an enemy to revive an ally are extremely low, not only in Auto battles, even in manual mode, it is so difficult to meet the condition of the A2 skill. IN the Facebook groups discussing this game, almost all players regard Reinbeast a vault guardian now. Thanks.

    Faction Wars?

    Hmmm… Retaliation…
    What if I’m sitting on a lot of Retaliation gear AND Relentless gear? I don’t see mention of that and I just rolled him and want to use him for my Area. I’ve got one open slot.
    (Currently using Shamrock, Kael, Wurlim Frostking and Thenasil.)

  15. BlastingFonda

    Re: The New Guy – I have him, and he’s awesome, but absolutely a support guy vs a high damage dealer. His three most useful skills as how I see them are:

    1. It Glows – free shield on one of your team members every single turn if they are attacked, with zero cooldowns. Excellent for Arena and Campaign, great for non-boss levels in Faction Wars, not so great for Dungeons, Boss levels and Clan Boss who tend to spam AoEs and doesn’t target your champions with single target attacks.
    2. Caning – great for dealing damage and getting continuous heals at the same time. As long as Reinbeast has a reasonable speed, he should hand out a decent amount of heal. This skill has value in all game modes but IMO it’s not as strong in practice as #1.
    3. Open Slay – more useful for the double hit, not as useful for the Res effect, which while great, rarely gets used unless you are facing killable mobs or arena or campaign. Worthless against bosses unless they produce fodder for Reinbeast to kill (i.e. Ice Golem for example).

    So to summarize – he’s very strong against teams, against bosses he’s fairly weak. I wouldn’t pour a lot of resources into him if you don’t think you’ll use him that way, but I also wouldn’t treat him as food either given he is so strong in his specific skill set.

  16. The New Guy

    I just got Reinbeast and have some questions:

    I do not need him in campaign or arena. Where I would like to use him is dungeons (lvl 20) and faction wars. Is he useful in this areas? Would he help to 3 star nightmare campaign?

    It seems that all of his support masteries are to make him go more often so that he can cast his continuous heal buff (A1) more often. Is that correct? So he basically is a healer?

    I don’t understand his support masteries. Why going so much into resistance? Is this necessary if I’m not using him in arena but only for Dungeons and faction wars? Would choosing a more defense oriented path be bad? (for dungeons and fw)

    Scince the offense path is not taken – will he still be able to kill and pull off his A2?

    Is it worth taking him to 60 for a f2p account?

    Many thanks in advance for your feedback.

    @Zoobydoo: Avenging Set is useful for Arena, but elsewhere it is not so beneficial. If players were to bring Reinbeast to clear Faction Wars due to lack of champions from Skinwalkers faction, the enemy champions attacking Reinbeast will not have much Critical Rate to trigger the effect from Avenging Set, rendering less useful. Retaliation Set is universally much more useful everywhere as it can trigger when enemy performs a normal hit, a strong hit, a weak hit and even Critical Hit, but sacrificing just the 5% success rate to trigger Counter Attack.

  18. Zoobydoo

    Seems like most arena champs are setup to crit 100% of the time, so why not use avenging instead of retaliation?

  19. Rayruu

    Hi, is he still available in dungoens ?
    I mean, cant see why he is good on golems,

    But I have him in my roster, and need to shape up my team, stuck at lvl 13 atm

    @DeclaredSnow: Yeah, Relickeeper is kinda weak against Spirit Affinity which is abundant in Nightmare Campaign Stage 6. You could try defeating them with your starting champion such as Kael and Athel geared with Lifesteal Set since they are Magic Affinity champions. I cleared Stage 1 to 4 with Athel and Rhazin Scarhide. While Stage 5, I cleared with Rhazin Scarhide and Vrask. It took awhile to clear with 2 champions since the enemies has lots of HP.

  21. DeclaredSnow

    That true I guess. Well he has been a pain in the arena Ladder so I might as well invest in him.

    Mastery points and gear is still correct since the update?

    Thank you for answering!

    Btw those two maxed out Relickeepers of my where destroying in the new campain! They pretty much 3 starred everything up to 6. Palace. Stuck at 8.2 for the moment with a full team.

    Thanks for the feedback Ayumilove! You’re the MVP!

    @Dominique Aasterud: If you got 2 Reinbeast, they will be unstoppable in Arena Offense and Defense since both of them can cover each other with “It Glows” Passive Skill. However, Reinbeast will not be able to solo by himself in Arena after the nerf patch v1.12.

  23. Dominique Aasterud

    Is he still worth it to invest in after the nerf last patch?
    Just got him today.
