Saurus Review

RAID Shadow Legends – Saurus is an Uncommon Spirit Attack champion from Lizardmen faction. He is obtainable from Mystery Shard, Market and farming in Campaign Stage 10 Godfrey’s Crossing.

Champion Purpose

  • AoE Attacker: Saurus is great against mobs of enemies as both his primary and secondary attack skills are AoE (Area of Effect) attack. Therefore, this champion is great in clearing mobs of non-Magic Affinity enemies in Campaign stages and Spider’s Den Dungeons.
  • Campaign Farmer: Saurus is an excellent Speed Farmer candidate for Campaign 12-3 Brutal because he can perform AoE (Area of Effect) Attack that could wipe out the entire enemy team in 1 hit for all 3 rounds, has quick skill animation that does not require him to move towards the target to perform the attack, and the enemies in 12-3 Brutal are neutral and weak affinities (Spirit and Force affinity).
  • Campaign Farmer Setup: To guarantee a quick 1 hit kill, Saurus needs to be equipped with high amount of Attack, Critical Rate and Critical Damage stats. It is recommended to have at least 4000 Attack, 100% Critical Rate, 150% Critical Damage and 100 Speed for Campaign Speed Farming. All of these can be obtained slowly by upgrading all the gears to Level 16 and have him equipped with Amulet, Ring and Banner.
  • Campaign Farmer Results: With this setup, Saurus can clear a Campaign stage under 10 seconds! This is very helpful when you are trying to create a lot of fodder (food champions) to upgrade another champion to 6 Stars. In addition, this will be very helpful during Champion Training Event where you collect points from leveling and ranking champions to earn event rewards.
  • Prevent enemies from healing: Saurus has a Heal Reduction skill to prevent enemies from healing efficiently. If you intend to use Saurus for this purpose, then he would need Accuracy stats for his Healing Reduction debuff to be inflicted successfully. You will need to balance between the Attack stats and Accuracy stats to enable the Healing Reduction to work as expected.
  • Conclusion: Overall, Saurus is an excellent glass cannon Campaign Speed Farmer champion but not great in Arena, Dungeons and Clan Boss.

Champion Limitation

  • Saurus has a low base HP (Hit Points aka Health) and DEF (Defense), which makes it difficult for him to survive against stronger enemies as you progress further in game. Reason being, the enemies could easily knockout Saurus in just few hits. Hence, he is viable for early-mid game content.
  • Once you have better champions to substitute Saurus to tackle other parts of the game content, you can specialized Saurus as your budget Campaign Speed Farmer for 12-3 Brutal.

Champion Additional Info

  • Saurus AoE Attack ability is to Sister Militant (Common Champion from The Sacred Order faction). The advantages of Saurus over Sister Militant is Uncommon champions can ascend to gain additional stats on HP, Attack and Defense.
  • The disadvantage of Saurus in comparison to Sister Militant is his low speed stat. Therefore, its recommended to get him at least 100 speed or just sufficient to be the first to start his turn in every battle.

Champion Reference

Below is a screenshot of the artifacts equipped on my Saurus for reference to speed farm Campaign 12-3 Brutal in 7 seconds. I have 1 Critical Rate Set, 1 Offense Set and mismatch/broken/miscelleanous Set pieces. The glove is Critical Damage (%), while the Chestplate and Boots are Attack (%). The ring and banner are Attack stats while the Amulet is Critical Damage (%). All the substats focussed on achieving high Critical Rate and Critical Damage. The total stats for Saurus is 4800 Attack, 100% Critical Rate, 220% Critical Damage and 114 Speed.

    I have mine in stun set. It helps me a lot in faction Wars (once I don’t have a Fu-Shan). The masteries, then, should go for fearsome presence.

    @Aletheia M: Yes, Saurus is still viable as an excellent Campaign speed farmer. I’m still using Saurus for Campaign 12-3 Brutal Farming to quickly level up champions for fodder especially during Champion Training Events.

  3. Aletheia M

    Thank you for the update on Saurus. I’m a new player and was wondering if Saurus was still a viable speed farmer today. The additions to your guide are a great help!

    @Rais: Gearing plays an essential role in boosting the champion’s full potential or compensate the champion’s weaknesses or both simultaneously in Raid Shadow Legends.

  5. Ayumilove Post author

    @all: I have added a screenshot of my Saurus for your reference in building a Campaign 12-3 Brutal Speed Farmer. Also, I have expanded on Saurus Review section with additional information based on my experiences working with him.

  6. Polpov

    @Badger Ken
    My guess would be because of the 50% Heal Reduction on his A2 good sir.

  7. Badger Ken

    Why is Saurus rated so high in Spirit dungeon? The main boss doesn’t have mobs,it’s more about debuffing and DPS. Thanks!

  8. Hawk

    Is there a printable guide for champs and Raid Shadow Legend in general?

  9. Rais

    It should be clear that he’s not a good champ in early game and even mid, because he’s S RANK only if geared. I honestly don’t think he deserve that S because of gear dependancy

  10. Timotres

    @LuBu
    it is EITHER get 3x Offense OR 1x of each listed (C.Dmg, Speed and Offense).

    So you gotta decide what fits you better 😉

  11. LuBu

    How does the gear section work? It says 3 off, sets then lists 3 more sets. But I can only equip 6 pieces of gear.

    very helpful guide! thank you!

    @Dante Wolfe: Thannks for your input! I have added that note in the Review section on where the Lizardmen champion Saurus can be obtained.

  15. Dante Wolfe

    Hi! I want to say, thanks for everything you do and love the website. In your Review section I noticed that you didn’t have mentioned that Saurus is also farm-able. He can be found in Godfrey’s Crossing.

    @Erin: Thanks for spotting the error. I have corrected Saurus review on the affinity type!

  17. Erin

    You write that he is good against non force champtions, but he is spirit so he has advantage over force. I think you mean magic.

  18. Say_Ten

    dude thank you for adding the rankings for dungeons/bosses!

    @Lusafin: Thanks for sharing your equipment build with us! I’ll add it into this guide.

  20. Lusafin

    this is how Alan Ostendorf build his saurus in the linked video and i have to say its far more affective than having a 3 offence sets, masteries are the same as u have it though lol

    @Kelmore: Thanks for your input on Saurus Mastery. Kill Streak looks much better than Methodical as it provides additional 2% damage. I’ll update the guide to replace Methodical with Kill Streak 🙂

  22. Kelmore

    Would think Kill Streak would be better than Methodical for Saurus. Kill streak would be capped at 12% after the 1st round of farming whereas Methodical only caps at 10% and he wouldn’t hit that till the 3rd round most times if at all.
