Valkanen Overview

Valkanen is a Legendary Void Attack champion from the Undead Hordes faction, was released on July 13 2023 (Patch 7.30) in Raid Shadow Legends as part of the Call of the Arbiter Episode 9! Arion who is Valkanen’s rival has bested him in every turn by stealing Lady of Ireth’s attention away from him. A voice of great power spoke to Valkanen across the barrier between worlds via a mirror, which has propelled him to join Siroth to gain dark magic and resulted him in his fateful transformation of the notorious Bad-El-Kazar!

Valkanen skill kit revolves around dealing damage and inflicting multiple debuffs. There are some secret skills under his belt that can only be unlocked by meeting specific conditions, similar to how Mortu-Macaab skill works!

Valkanen Champion Lore

Bad-el-Kazar has been declared the greatest mage on the surface of Teleria. The truth of this declaration is debatable, but he is, without a doubt, incredibly powerful, and incredibly influential. He once ruled the grand city-state of lreth with an iron fist, and some even claim that he was the very one to drag that glorious city into the corruption and ruin it is known for today. Sightings of Kazar can be traced all across the continents of Teleria, his purposes inscrutable. Many claim that he is a necromancer, hunted by the Sacred Order, while others claim he is, himself, Undead, blessed and cursed with eternal life. The more curious dare to ask themselves where his power might have come from.

The answer to that question is known to precious few, but if one traces back through history to find lreth as it once was — a center of learning, of culture, of wisdom, and wealth – one would find a very sad young boy, standing at the window of his new prison-home, watching a ship sail away. The boy’s name was Valkanen, and he missed his mother.

Valkanen had not chosen to attend the Academy at lreth. Back home in Kaerok, he had performed a powerful spell that had destroyed a man’s memory, reducing him to a blubbering beggar. The man had been Valkanen’s father. Valkanen’s protests – that he had cast the spell in self-defense — were little comfort to the paranoid townsfolk, and their attempts to get rid of him might have escalated to violence if not for the intercession of the local Duke’s house mage. The mage disrupted a fomenting riot, calming the angry crowd by taking the boy responsible away. ‘Away’ turned out to be half a world away — the mage took Valkanen across the sea, to the great continent of Peltas. There, nestled on the southern coastline of the Krokhan Desert, was lreth. lreth was a glittering jewel at that point, and Valkanen had been suitably overwhelmed by its majesty when he had first arrived. But when he learned of his fate — that this was not a visit, but an exile — the city lost much of its luster to him.

Valkanen never lost that faint sense of resentment, but he did, at least, come to adapt to his circumstances. He learned he was an extremely powerful magic user, becoming a rising star in the Mage Academy, and he found himself the subject of much adoration by both fellow students and full-blooded mages alike. The respect and camaraderie was at first soothing, then later, addicting. As Valkanen grew into manhood, he became wholly dependent on the affection of others – their dreams of him growing into the greatest mage in lreth became not only his own, but they replaced all his hopes and ambitions.

But those ambitions made competition intolerable. And comp – form of Arion – the son of the very duke who had Valkanen banished. : nd talent, and was quick to wrap the Academy around his finger. Was h . d, or as promising as Valkanen? Promising, maybe, and he certainly h.’.TODOSt m – – OK acked. In the eyes of the Academy, though, it was enough that Arion at least presented himself as Valkanen’s superior — lreth was hungry to have its star pupil tested. The teachers encouraged the rivalry, stoking the competition between them, hoping it would push them to improve. It worked… but it worked far too well. As his friends abandoned him at the urging of the senior mages, and as praise was heaped on the undeserving Arion, Valkanen was consumed with rage. The spotlight had been the only thing he had to hold on to, and he would not abide it being stolen.

What few limits Valkanen had left melted away. Caution. Ethics. Self-preservation. Most consequential of all, incredulity. Valkanen sought power, from anywhere that he could find it, and he found it in a whisper in his dreams — a shadow at the corner of his eye, a fleeting figure in the mirror that was not a mere reflection. As Valkanen would learn — as all of lreth would learn — there are sources of magic that are always waiting for those strong and foolish enough to reach for power without asking where it comes from… or what it might cost.
