    What about using him for hydra?

  2. MrKinG

    I want to use UDK for dungeons, what set and stats should i use?

  3. Slayer

    Incredible. I moved up to level 19 with the team in FW and they all died at level 1 except UDK. He finished the level off and went up to level 2. Solo’d that and went to level 3. Solo’d that too 😮 although the counter had started so I was hoping to win before being timed out. What a great champ and I have not even finished building him yet.

    I have him in Stoneskin, he is level 60 and has all his Masteries. Five books so far so five more to go.

  4. Rafal

    Does guardian set on UDK have sense vs CB?

  5. Bob

    Well UDK certainly can be a formidable foe in arena. If you are struggling against him, his biggest downfall will be a long drawn out fight where you can place a heal reduction on him and survive his damage. Defense down should destroy him in most cases. As a result Resistance is very important when building a UDK for arena haha. Or bring some tough to kill champ in a destroy set (which can’t be resisted) for times he is built that way.

    I personally have a regen set as he isn’t booked and could gain from having A3 cd reduced to heal more often. He still rocks in dungeons, especially spider with a ton of resist as well. He will keep your level 50 allies alive in 20+ dungeons where single targets would pick them off over and over.

    He’s the best champion I’ve got and very happy to have him! I started my account FTP a few months ago.

    11/10 big good. Great pretty much anywhere: passive cheese or keeping people alive.
    420/69 arena defense trolling (him with 3 – 1 star DK’s).

    5/5 clan boss – He’s REALLY good in clan boss if you’re new as well. My regen set carries him along proccing ‘War master’ for a good 10ish boss turns after everyone else is dead lol (brutal difficulty to 29+ turns for advanced clan quest). He moves faster and takes less damage as people die around him lol. Offense and defense mastery procs counter attacks when the boss hits hard enough. He lands decrease attack on clan boss with enough accuracy and heals and shields allies.

  6. Travkid

    To add on my previous comment, this guy is good everywhere in the game, but for me his primary use is to solo Dragon 25 and Ice Golem 25. He is also a gamechanger in the arena and is a hard counter against champions like Rotos. But anyways… the only bad thing about this guy is that he is KINDA SLOW at clearing Dragon and Ice Golem 25, but he is incredibly safe and efficient at this task. Someone like Bad El can clear these dungeons faster, but has a different/higher gear requirement. Bad El is best doing this in a frenzy set, but other sets work as well. However, UDK needs a toxic set, no debate about it unless you want him to be even slower.

  7. Travkid

    This guy has quickly become my favorite champion in the game. His passives are so ridiculously strong! He solos Ice Golem 25, and Dragon 25, with no problems at all with decent gear and full masteries, and he’s only 6 star level 30 right now. I can only imagine this will be even more consistent when I get him to level 60! I was struggling to consistently clear IG 25 and Dragon 25 with a full team, and this guy does it all by himself!!!! HE IS SO DAMN GOOD! I can put in 4 food champions and farm gear and exp on the highest dungeons thanks to him.

    He HARD CARRIES in spider, because the spiderlings CANNOT target anyone else but him, and I already have him built fast, high resistance, high HP, and high DEF from soloing the other dungeons, so he’s immortal and tanking up everything for my spider team. I went from doing Spider 20 to Spider 25 at a 100% success rate.

    Seriously. By himself he can beat scarab, bommal, Minotaur 15, Arcane Keep 20, Void Keep 20, Force Keep 20, Spirit 20 (if you put him in cursed gear, probably not worth it) Ice Golem 25, and Dragon 25. If you have this champion and you don’t use him, you’re missing out on so much.

  8. Chris

    Ich bin ein relativ neuer Spieler, lvl 40 knapp einen Monat dabei.

    Gibt es ein Gegenbuild, um zu mindest die Single UDK Teams zuverlässig auszuknocken in Tag Team oder Arena. Da brauch ich meist schon meine primären Schadensverursacher hinter meinen eigenen Ritter. Aktuell schenke ich meist dem Slot mit dem gegnerischen Todesritter ab.

    Regenerationsverhinderer machen zuwenig schaden und halten zuwenig aus, Schildbrecher könnten die klappen oder ist die Resistenz zu hoch?

  9. Chris

    this guy is a beast grinding the campaign. i put him in life and immortal gear, focusing exclusively on maxing his HP. my starter is only in attack gear. don’t even need lifesteal. even when the affinities are poor, it hardly slows them down.

  10. Brian

    I used to think this thing was funny. Not anymore. He is a broken annoyance who I wish would go away.

  11. Tex

    There has never been a stronger argument for calling a “draw” in arena than this ridiculous champion.
    Tonight I let the game play for two hours. When I came back the deathlnight was still fighting strong. A lvl 42 ultimate death knight was keeping Scyl, Prince, Ninja and Drath at bay for two hours.
    Clearly this is broken. No one champion should be an absolute make or break.

    Am I in the wrong here?
    I read the comments and see that I am clearly not the only one frustrated by this champion. Is pretty much ruined arena for me. More and more people use him so it’s harder and harder to maintain rank, much less advance.

  12. Rhynocerous

    @Lawrence Don’t worry! The artifacts are not gone. There are a few places they could be. First of all, check the three bars on the left of the bastion page and see if there’s a notification red dot. If there is, you can click it, then check for the UDK login reward. If it’s gone, the artifacts are either in your mailbox or already in your champion artifact section. The rewards were 4 Epic and 2 Legendary Regeneration pieces, so they may already be in with your gear. They may not be great necessarily, still RNG just like getting items from dungeons. If you are looking for help with the game or just a community I would check out this site (ayumilove.net), Hellhades.com, search stuff on YouTube, and both AyumiLove and HellHades discords. A lot of information about the game that should help as you progress through, and places to ask specific questions if you need to. And don’t worry about making mistakes; we all did at the beginning! Learning the game as you progress is half the fun.

    @Sylvander Dec Def will help a lot, as well as AOE abilities that his passive can’t absorb. He is very annoying for sure. Heal reduction if you have it available can also help (if you’re REALLY desperate you could try a Cursed set).

  13. Lawrence

    AyumiLove, I need help and I hope you can give it to me. When the letter came out I clicked on all of the days thinking it would save in its own section. I did not know by clicking on UDK I would receive it and gave all artifacts away. I have maxed out every thing. I would like to know what the artifacts were and see if I can find suitable ones to replace the one I have already assigned. I am a 76 yr. old 100% disabled and this game has me totally hooked. It is the only form of entertainment I have. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have only been playing this game for 2 months and have made so many mistakes in building my champions.

  14. Sylvander

    Anyone have tips on killing this guy? He’s basicly ruining arena for me…

  15. Stanima

    Well, I cannot say my experience with this character in Faction Wars is not as advertised. I have been 1-shot in 2 consecutive tries by the stage 7 boss. Cleared the waves with full health, then dead immediately. 3* the 6 previous levels with zero issues. What just happened?!

  16. dany

    my phone got stolen and my laptop aint good either all i can do is come here and read about this new masterpiece

  17. Coup

    Hello Ayumilove! If I build the UDK as the Arena, Doom Tower, Faction Wars build that you posted here, will the UDK be able to well in Campaigns, Dungeons, and Clan Bosses?

  18. Mythria

    Thanks for the awesome site, Ayumi. I was having trouble with Dreadhorn (Floor 50) until I put UDK into my team. The rest of my team went down pdq but UDK stayed up and soloed the boss, this is despite the fact that I’ve only skilled him up twice.

  19. Slayer

    So, a free S Tier Lego with bonus added hype. I finally found a character to put Stoneskin on as I was holding back a bit deliberately waiting for a worthy chump, I mean champ. Busy now levelling him in nightmare Campaign – my standard levelling place which saves using up potions. He seems to perform ok in there, but once I have maxed him, it will be his turn to go top level with Minotaur to get his Masteries. Can’t wait to use this boy once he has grown up, looks interesting. I will be pleased to know what others think.

    If you have not got it yet, Plarium also have a new Premium Code at the moment, whilst it lasts anyway. DKSKELETONCREW It gives you the original DK plus a bunch of stuff to build him and level him. Alternatively, you can screw that, keep the goodies and use DK as food for someone else. However, with all the Ultimate DK hype at the mo they may decide to do something with DK, so it might be worth throwing him in the Champion Vault for a while if you need the space.

    @Raislen: PvE (Player vs Environment) where players challenge against non-Arena battles. PvP (Player vs Player) challenges Arena Teams (1v1, 3v3), which is much more difficult as the opponent can equip their heroes with various types of artifact sets (e.g. Stoneskin, Shield, Speed, Stun, etc).

  21. Raislen

    Thank you for sharing UDK’s information and masteries. I got him a few days ago and have him at leveling him up quickly, he is awesome. I have him in Regen and Divine Speed, 6* lvl 52 I am ready to his masteries to work but I am not sure what PVE and PVP stand for. Fairly new to the game. BTW. Your stats are a huge help, THANK YOU
