Taurus Mastery Guide

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

Pre-requisite: Taurus to be equipped with Lifesteal Set for Clan Boss, whereas Accuracy Set and Speed Set are recommended for Dungeons and Faction Wars. Taurus requires high amount of Accuracy to inflict Poison debuff on enemies, and sufficient Speed to go at least twice of the enemies turn with the aid of Support Champion who can provide Increase Speed buff. The Poison deals damage over time (DoT) and works best against high HP enemies at higher level dungeon stages. The key is to keep Taurus alive with Heal and Revive, so he can apply many Poison debuff to the enemies. Take note that a champion can only have at most 10 debuff at any point of time. Therefore, using more than 2 Taurus in a battle will not be beneficial. Taurus does not have any nuking skill but paired with a champion who can explode those Poisons debuff will be devastating.

Taurus Storyline

Though Skinwalkers at large lack the secrets of steel or alchemy to truly challenge the powerful nations of Teleria, ancient tribal lore and knowledge of the land allow them to improvise. Thus the Taurus, in addition to his brute strength, has access to potent poisons crafted by the tribe’s shamans any venomous component they can find – be it a corrupted plant or a giant spider’s powdered mandibles. Such concoctions can be extremely virulent, if volatile and prone to poisoning the warrior using them as well as the intended targets. Though sheer animalistic toughness allows the Taurus to withstand the worst of the effects, having means of healing on hand is never a bad idea for any Warrior wishing to employ such tactics.

    Taurus does average 14M on my nm team now with paired Teo. Taurus is really good, mine is still in lifesteal gear although time for upgrade it as of now I can farm hard dungeons. But if anyone gets lucky at the beginning of the game with a Taurus and a healer that’s a good base for a CB team.

  2. Campa

    I’m going to second Daff in support of Taurus.

    F2P here, level 62. My CB Team is: Ronda Lvl 60, Tagoar 60, Artak 60, Deacon 60, and Taurus 50.

    Just used a key on Nightmare and got 16.13mm damage. Ronda got 6.9mm damage, Artak 3mm, and a level 50 Taurus got 4.85mm.

    I think if I six starred Taurus and gave him an accuracy banner and Warmaster, he might get more damage than my best legendary on clan boss.

    One thing though, I think his gloves should be def% rather than hp%, since his a3 brings his hp to zero no matter what level he starts off with. The chest def needs to be accuracy to land the poisons.

    Thanks for your amazing site, Ayumi! I read it daily!

  3. Daff

    I have to defend Taurus. He was one of the first Epics I’ve pulled right after starting the game and he is my main damage dealer in CB still. I used him in PVP for a long while until I’v got better champs but oh boi, he was good in life steal gear in pvp oo paired with a healer or a block damage champ. Still using him in Tag arena. I am rocking nm two key, not unkilleable team (in a couple of days my team is going to be ready and keeping him in my unkilleable and see). But udk,duchess,him,helicath and Artak doeas over 27M with one key.

  4. PhleBuster

    Taurus isn’t really my top pick for clan boss, though you can probably use him as the stun target. 5 star is easier to keep alive than 4 star overall, and does a bit more damage outside of his poison nova, but honestly not a huge difference. If you’re in early game, he can be a great tool in breaking into Doom Tower, and also for Ice Golem/Dragon progression.

  5. Campa

    I have a four- and a five-star Taurus.

    The Toxic Nova skill seemed so awful that I was thinking of feeding them both to six-star another champion, but it seems there might be utility for Clan Boss.

    Is a five-star Taurus greatly superior in Clan Boss to a four-star Taurus, and why? I’d rather feed the five-star Taurus if a four-star Taurus does roughly the same damage.

    Should I keep them both, feed them both, or feed just one, and, if so, which one?
    Also, I don’t have any Champion with Poison Activation or Poison Explosion, can Taurus still be useful in Clan Boss?


  6. Shizukuishi

    @5Notabot, I’m trying out Lethal Dose as it will increase the damage received from poison debuffs by 25%. It also ignores 35% of the mark’s res.

  7. Notabot

    Which blessing should we use for Taurus?

  8. Adam

    With the new blessings i added phantom touch to mine and when he receives the damage to him self that phantom touch can activate and kill him before he places the unkillable buff on himself. Even though the blessing for phantom touch says has a chance of inflicting bonus damage to one enemy whenever this champion hits enemy targets.

  9. KrakenAZ2

    I don’t see the 5* on Fire Knight. I saw a comment below about a world record speed run using him, but I have to assume that is a very specialized team with a poison exploder and a ton of top tier characters and/or the best gear possible (i.e. every speed record). Most people use turn meter control for FK, and poison is generally useless in that situation. I don’t feel that such a specialized team merits 5*.

  10. PhleBuster

    I personally think he’s 4 or 5 stars for Doom Tower floors. His A3 is what’s let me clear all the floors. I have him on lvl 50 with just Kael and Duhr the Hungerer at 60, and I’ve been able to clear up to floor 80 already, he’s responsible for more damage than my lvl 60 Kael who’s my only actual DPS in the setup. He also tanks a ton, being invulnerable most of the time. With decent enough accuracy his A3 damage gets more valuable the tougher the opponents, getting him to 60 isn’t a high priority (though you do want to book him).

  11. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    UPDATE: I just took Royal Guard out of that comp (see below), and without changing anything, it still runs (so far without fail), but closer to 4:45. Excellent option for Dragon Tournament during fusions when you need to be simultaneously leveling food. And for overnight multibattles.

  12. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Taurus can be awesome in Dragon 20. I use him in my 3-champion team: Royal Guard (lead), Scyl of the Drakes, and Taurus. I clear Dragon 20 with that comp in 2:30-3:10 very reliably. Fantastic way to level food.

    I have my Taurus in Regeneration/Perception, with the Master Hexer mastery (but no other T5), all books except the last one on his A2 (not sure if I want that or not, honestly, because the healing on his A1 is nice). Royal Guard is typical Savage/Speed with Helmsmasher; Scyl is typical Relentless/Speed.

    So in my estimation, Taurus can be a very valuable Dragon champion, probably at lower levels as well, since his A3 isn’t an attack (so no weak hits when the affinity is off). I also used him as my only damage champion in FW 21. Wasn’t a fan at first, ate about 4 of them before I saw the light–but now I’m on the Taurus train.

  13. Akran7

    @Begone! You do need to ascend him in order to obtain the Unkillable property!

  14. Begone!

    When Taurus does his A3 Toxic Nova, his health goes down, yes, but I see only a Shield buff icon appearing on him, not Unkillable… And guess what, after this super-duber suicide attack, he dies. Am I the only one having this?

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @Schuppentier: I have bumped up Taurus ratings for Dragon’s Lair, Ice Golem’s Peak, Spider’s Den, Clan Boss, Void Keep and Force Keep.

  16. Schuppentier

    Actually its an 5 star for clan boss after the buffs he dont deserve to be an F rank anymore. Also on dragon and spider very efficient. u dont need to maake him a lvl 60 lvl 50 is enaught even for hard stages like dragon 20.

  17. Copa

    Taurus needs to be updated, definitely not F rank anymore not even close

  18. LinePK

    Taurus can work well with the Outlaw Monk and Bulwark, for CB?

  19. Dank Rank

    Murderinc posted a few videos with Taurus recently. Taurus was apart of his world record speed runs on dragon and fire knight. Need Zavia or Elenaril (someone to activate all damage from poisons instantly). So definitely needs the right setup, but Taurus can be really useful if paired correctly.

  20. PZ

    Great ideas from everyone. But the old saying, ‘you can put earring on a pig to pretty her up. But in the end its still a pig’. I would waste epic tomes on this one.

  21. Sunny Lam


  22. Schlotz

    I have him with full speed set and for the Clan Boss he is incredible in my opinion. In combination with a Recall Champion he causes more than 50% of the Damage that I cause to the Clan Boss.

  23. Astarothbar

    @Toadameat. Thanks for the comment. It’s the kind of information that always is helpfull. Now I’ll use him…

  24. Woolfblood

    How about 1 fury set and 1 accuracy.pump him with crit damage and pair him with a guy that can put a counter attack after his poison nova. Would that work in Arena?

  25. Papulina

    Mate what a lovely description! I pulled him around 2 months ago and didn’t even tried to use him. But now, since I’m looking for a Weaken debuffer and after I read your “6-9kk dmg” this one really turns me on.

  26. Sinistro

    Fala galera, acabei de ganhar esse camp. e gostaria de saber qual a maestria a ser usada nele? Qual set e seus atributos essas coisas.. achei ele interessante.

  27. Toadameat

    Oops, sorry, forgot to mention acc as a stat, I kinda always assume it’s one of those things that’s a given since he is a poison champ. And then other 2 slots after lifesteal I put him in Acc set.

  28. Toadameat

    After a little more experimenting, I’d have to say he pairs off extremely well with a high hp healer, such as thenasil, Maus mage, gogorab, vrask is probably the best by far since he can heal every turn. But if you are lacking such a healer, you can also put him into lifesteal gear, and use s champ that places leech, use the support tree/def tree for the extra 5% heal, and in cb he will heal himself in 1 or 2 turns, the bonus damage ( war master works best since it procs way more often) is typically around 60k, his attack is easy to get to 10k damage even taking less stats into attack, and the heal on hit to targets under poison debuffs becomes a 45% heal, the bonus damage is included in the heal amount, so his first attack heals him for 31,500 even at 10k damage from just his attack everytime warmaster procs. Every once in awhile warmaster wont proc for several turns but that is really rare if your crit rate is 100%. Dont worry about his att stat to much, he doesnt need it, he will be doing plenty of damage from the bonus damage and poison counters, def/hp/crit rate/speed is more the focus I’d recommend. And probably the main reason he isnt liked is because if you dont fully tome this champ he doesnt function properly. He does need tomes. But on NM difficulty cb with his speed just slightly under the bosses ( mines at 161, I’m still working on him) he is now doing 6-9 mill damage ( like all champs he gets less when the affinity dont match) . He has also reduced my IG time to 4:31 secs on auto with a 100% win rate, only done about 60 battles so far there, but havent lost yet and I’m not finished with his gear. He might take a little bit of effort, but once finished he has alot of potential is several aspects of the game. And since I pulled flesh tearer, he has become much more viable in faction wars ( I had no healer there till now and the screen moving removes his unkillable buff which was a pain, but any form of healer makes him useful in faction wars, I dont pull often so it took me awhile to get a skin Walker healer). Just a heads up for anyone who pulls him, he seems to be one of the epics handed out quite often, so if you do pull him and are stuck in progressing maybe in cb damage, dragon or IG, he can be used quite well in those areas.

  29. Toadameat

    Edit for clarity on previous post. Mines currently using 6 star toxic gear for the extra placement, largely because I wanted faster placement on cb for experimental poison comp, I was limited in prisoners at the time, but will be removing the toxic in favor of stat boosts soon since I’ve pulled more champs since I started him

  30. Toadameat

    Cb dragon and ice golem I’d have to disagree. His rating should be alot higher in those areas. In both dragon and ice golem 20 he can turn the battle. In dragon he can place 8 poison counters by himself and prevent dragon breath. In ice golem I use him to keep 8 poison counters tagged on golem so that while I focus on the minions the golem is taking huge amounts in poison damage and preventing his revival skill. golem 20 typically only gets to revive his minions once if at all, and that using auto. Most I do is make team target minions first. In cb half the time he is one of the last champs left alive, you can time his poison explosion to place unkillable to keep him alive, that heal he gets from targets under poison also includes the bonus damage from warmaster, my team also uses a leech debuff on cb, which gives him a 30% heal on hit from his A1. I have him fully healed 1 turn after placing his counters since I use vrask part of the time, takes a maximum of 2 turns to heal himself if I remove vrask. His ability to place 4 counters also works out wonderful on any cb team that wants to use karam to abuse poison counters, I’ve only started working on that comp and was able to do 9 mil damage in the first 2 minutes (nightmare) with only 1 person on the team is lvl 16 gear, the rest was lvl 8-12 gear and 1 member was only lvl 50 with lvl 12 gear, going to be a fun comp when finished. Not saying he is great everywhere, but in those 3 areas he can be extremely good.

  31. KindaEpic

    I Just got this guy. Thought what TRASH!
    Except, I Have Zavia who debuffs poisons. So i have him go first. he goes to 1% life and goes unkillable for 2 turns, so the AI always focuses him. Use him in Arena. and on Spider. I cant think of any other use for him.
    I also keep him a low level, I just put points into Accuracy and speed. Same with masteries, Just got the first tier. 80% for 3 poisons is a pretty high chance, wouldn’t bother skilling him either. Very Niche character.

  32. Monica

    When you got time, i would like to get masteries, and artifact info on this guy plz.
