Venomage Review

Venomage is an Epic Support Magic affinity champion from Lizardmen faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Venomage was introduced in Patch 4.40 on July 2021. She inflicts a wide variety of debuffs against her foe, which includes Decrease Attack, Decrease Defense, Poison and Heal Reduction debuff! This makes her a great candidate for raiding bosses such as Clan Boss, Fire Knight and Spirit Keep. In addition, Venomage offers 2 unique skills, which are to reduce enemy damage whenever they have Heal Reduction debuff on them and the ability to instantly activate Poison debuff without waiting for the enemy reaching its turn! This makes her a good pair with with champion who has counterattack (e.g. Martyr, Valkyrie, Skullcrusher) and increase debuff duration (e.g. Vizier Overlis) abilities! Each counterattack enables Venomage to instantly activate the Poison debuff that are stacked on the boss by the increase duration debuffers!

Venomage Champion Lore

The art of producing and distilling toxins is a part of Lizardman culture reaching back as far as the half-forgotten days of the Dragonkin Empire. Many Lizardmen are capable of producing secretions that can both heal and enhance their kind and poison other species. These can be combined into a near-endless mixture of potions and tinctures that form the basis of the venom magics, a class of sorcery that is part biological, part shamanistic spellcraft.

The practitioners of these magics are the Venomages. While not an organized sect, individual Venomages pass on their abilities as part of a long-standing oral tradition, and their network of elders and apprentices runs through the strata of Lizardmen clan life, particularly among the more traditionalist communities in the Sorrowlakes. While not all Lizardmen clans have a Venomage, most know where to find one, seeking their aid in times of disease, famine, war, or when wisdom and knowledge is required.

How much the Venomage’s work really is magical, and how much is down to their knowledge and manipulation of Lizardmen physiology is a point of debate, but only those who have not seen the oldest or most powerful Venomages at work — especially during combat — would doubt their abilities. These figures are able to turn the blood of an enemy toxic with a hissed incantation, or set their every nerve ending alight with maddening pain with a flick of their forked tongues.

Some Venomages claim that they are descended from a venerable Dragonkin priesthood. According to these old fables, they served the Dragonkin Emperor initially as humble food testers, but later they worked as both healers and assassins in service to the empire. While any Lizardman with an affinity for toxins can learn the Venomage’s art, the fact that the majority all hail from a particular serpentine species implies there is some truth to the claims of an ancient hereditary caste.

Though the Venomages no longer serve an emperor as their sole ruler, among the Lizardmen stories persist of a particularly ancient and powerful member of their kind to which all others owe deference. Known most commonly as Sy’lath, he is said to live deep within the Sorrowlakes, amid near-impenetrable swamplands whose wildlife, flora, and fauna are inimical to most Lizardmen. His knowledge and mastery of Lizardmen biology, as well as his understanding of the uses of the bark, roots, leaves, and sap of many of the marshland’s plant life, have made him a healer beyond compare and given him an unnatural extended lifespan — he may even have served the forces of the Pact during the Gaellen War, centuries ago, so some whisper.

Even more so than his power to heal, Sy’lath’s power to destroy is formidable. The smallest drop of venom from his own wicked fangs is enough to permanently put down several Ogryn, while his knowledge of toxin-magics allows him to choke, poison, and torture any who raise his ire. Many other, lesser Venomages have sought him out, hoping to trace a path to his simple abode and perhaps prove strong and wise enough to become his apprentice, but if Sy’lath has ever taken on an understudy in the craft of envenoming, it has not been for many years. Perhaps he is now dead, his body reduced to a dry and desiccated husk, or perhaps he still spreads his poisons in secret, waiting until one truly worthy of his knowledge is able to track him down.

    @Impulsive: Thanks for sharing your experiences with Venomage on where you used him. I’ll update Venomage ranking from B to A tier.

  2. Inpulsive

    Deffinetley A tier, using for DPS on crowd on 25 level dragon, out performs sometimes drextar, Great in ice golem as a dps decrease def and attack on boss, and hes very good in clan boss, and has heal reduraction vs any spider or potion, hes def no tier b.


    OnoBow she activates poisons…so you need a lot of poisons …i intend to use her with mithrala and noct the paralyzer…THEY BRING POISONS…so i d say frozen banshee…she has poison sensitinity too…so more damage overall..!!

  4. OnoBow

    Quick Question time:

    Would she work better for CB in the setups below, which is better?

    Aox & Frozen Ban

    Aox & Venomage

    Thanks in advance?

  5. Jestafool

    @John Venomage is a poison champ. She will do loads of damage over time with all her poison debuffs. With the big versions of defense down and attack down on enemy. Over all she is one of the coolest champs to work with I believe. She does real well against clan boss with her passive making anyone under heal reduction also do less damage. So yes she will do way better then warmaiden.

  6. John

    Would Venomage be considered a debuffer? If so do you think he’s better than Warmaiden? Thanks, I’m still a newbie so any info is much needed.

  7. Daniel Wilhite

    Hey venomage does not start out with 15 accuracy the champ has zero

  8. Jestafool88

    @MotherOfDragons3 I went with arcane celerity because I use a toxic set with my Venomage. I get more damage from the toxic ticks with the added chance of turn meter with all the debuffs.

  9. MotherOfDragons3

    Can someone please advise an answer to the question already asked, and that is, is Single Out really a good choice over Arcane Celerity? Thanks in advance! I’m stuck trying to decide on a few of her Masteries.

  10. bad bed bug

    Taking in account that equipped in regeneration she can do solo not only scarab, but also ice golem and dragon I would say that the ratings in those areas could be higher

  11. angry citizen

    Jedi’s vid on venomage didn’t mention her a1 taking poison debuffer off immediately was great in that it leaves you more debuff room. Think about it. I max out on debuffs on cb so having poisons activate immediately is a big deal. Just means more room sooner for more debuffs. I don’t think he took that into concideration.

  12. Jestafool88

    Is single out really worth having over arcane celerity? She doesn’t have much damage anyway so why not just try for turn meter with all the debuffs she puts out and also she makes her poisons tick faster.

  13. Huch

    Venom and The Frog make a very nice combo. Used today in epic tour. On Dragon with the booster and spd buff and they rolled thru 24 dragon easy.

  14. StonerSteve

    Would Venomage work well with Dracomorph or would there be too many debuffs on the boss for it work effectively?

  15. Furio Natale

    Grazie tante

  16. Ken

    I overlooked the 5% extra to activate 2 poisons with A1.

  17. Ken

    Would Spirit Haste or Kill Streak be better than Sniper considering all Venomage’s debuffs are 100% when fully booked or is there an advantage I don’t know about for having 105%?

  18. Michiel Ecker

    Does his passive work during Clan Boss as well?
    If so, that’s an amazing passive, no?

  19. ArcticF0X

    Outside of Clan Boss, should be obvious but Toxic set (more poisons) and Cursed set (more heal reductions) are surely worth considering as the A1/A2 skills are contingent on those debuffs being placed. I know Venomage places them herself but it requires a setup sequence than can easily be thrown off. Am using as a Level 50 in Faction Wars with Toxic Set and the synergy is good.

  20. Bill nadj

    I think you have severely underrated this new champ based on videos i’ve seen of how she works.

  21. TotallyReal

    Man, I thought he would look like Venomancer from Dota based on his picture but he is just another boring humanoid with legs.

    But his kit seems absolutely bonkers, Decrease def and atk, AoE poison, AoE healing reduction, inbuilt destroyer set, amazing passive, high def and poison activating. I think he might be the best non-legendary poisoner. Counterattack comp with frozen banshee, anyone? Frozen banshee applies poisons, venomage activates them.
