Saito Masteries Guide

Arena, Campaign, Clan Boss, Dungeons, Doom Tower, Faction Wars

Pre-requisite: Saito to be equipped with Lifesteal Set and decent Attack, Critical Rate, Critical Damage and Speed stats. This mastery setup is recommended for players who have him in early-mid game, so he can be helpful in all areas while dealing decent amount of damage and have some tankiness to survive harsh battles. If you have dedicated champions for specific areas (dungeons, Clan Boss, campaign, Faction Wars) and you would want to boost your efficiency in 1 specific area, check the “Arena” and “Clan Boss” mastery setup.

Saito Review

Saito, a Legendary Attack Magic affinity champion from the Undead Hordes faction in Raid Shadow Legends, entered the game in October 2020 after content creators visited Plarium HQ where Cerberusarms’ image was captured and used to create the character of an Undead Samurai. Saito’s focus is on causing devastating damage as an Attack-based champion, making him a valuable asset in the Arena, Clan Boss, and Dungeons. He’s an excellent choice for players looking to accelerate their content clearing speed. To make the most of Saito’s potential, build him up with high crit rate and damage, preferably using cruel or savage gear. This legendary champion is sure to bring some excitement to your gameplay, and he’s definitely worth the investment to get to 6 stars.

    Curious how good his numbers would be after hes fully booked/mastered, and given an Instinct/Savage Cruel set or Rathalos/Cruel?
    His passive makes him ignore 30% DEF by turn 4 for the rest of the fight against CB, top that off with another 25-35% from set bonuses and he’s ignoring more than half of the CB’s DEF. I mean you could even go more crazy and take Helmsmasher over Warmaster and add a chance for even MORE Ignore DEF and possibly be ignoring almost 80% DEF with his attacks.
    I’m just wondering if anybody has tried this and if the numbers would be worth the investment.

    Just pulled him and a few other good Legos but he’s the only att. one. Need help.from aome.older players on how to get my speeds up amd how to.set up the right teams. Name in the games Soul1l

  3. Timbo23

    @all: I have corrected the mastery listing for “Arena, Campaign, Clan Boss, Dungeons, Doom Tower and Faction Wars” and “Clan Boss” to sync with the mastery image.

    @Joe: I highly recommend Scyl of the Drakes as she is more versatile than Saito in many areas of the game especially for end game content such as Doom Tower (Normal and Hard difficulty).

  6. Brad

    In regards to the mastery options, only the Arena build has the Tier 10 mastery match in both the image and list below it.

  7. Perico

    Hi Joe.
    I think Scyl is much more useful in other areas of the game. Fully booked and with relentless or speed sets she can heal your entire team a lot, give speed up and lots of stuns and term meter control. And don’t forget she is a reviver too.
    Saito is a much more specific champion you can upgrade when you progress in the game with the books you get with missions.
    To properly progress you’ll need Scyl more than Saito.

  8. Joe

    Thank you for this site! Quick question for you: I just pulled Saito and I’m wondering if you’d recommend me using all my books for him or should I save the books for when I get Scyl of the Drakes?

  9. kexchoklad

    Do you still recommend warmaster for clan boss? considering they fixed it so it cant proc twice

  10. Megan

    Hello! Your site is wonderfully helpful. I was just going through the Arena Offense ranking list and I noticed that Saito is listed twice in the Arena Offense list. He is listed in the 5* Offense list as well as the 4* Offense list.

  11. Druaca

    I assume it is because AOE becomes less important past Stage 15 or so. Need more CC for the spiderlings at that point because you cannot burn them down as fast.

  12. Staydge

    Hello, why do you rate Saito 2* in Spider’s Den ? He does a lot of damage to the Spider and have a good AoE (With a big cooldown i admit)
