RAID: Shadow Legends | Vergis Champion Guide by StewGaming

Vergis Review

RAID Shadow Legends – Vergis is an Epic Spirit Defense champion from the High Elves faction where he can be obtained from Ancient Shards and Sacred Shards.

Champion Purpose

  • Vergis excels as a tank in protecting allies in battle. He has a skill called “Aegis”, which applies Ally Protection buff to all allies to mitigate a portion of the damage from them to himself. It also buffs the targeted ally (the champion in the Leader Position) with Continuous Heal and Increase Speed buff.
  • Vergis is able to tank/absorb high amount of damage with the help of his passive skill called “Second Wind”. This allows him to replenish his shield whenever he loses a portion of his HP. It also instantly applies a Continuous Heal buff on himself whenever his HP drops below 50%.
  • He excels against multi-hit attacking Champions but terrible against Champion who deals large burst of damage as it does not activate the shield multiple time. Therefore, he is not well suited as defender against Speed Nuke Team in Arena or enemy’s attack that can bypass shield.
  • He can play the role as Tank Bait in Spider’s Den (Force Affinity Dungeon to provoke Spiderling) as his shield can mitigate the damage from Spiderling’s attack. To counter Spiderling’s Poison debuff, equip him with gear that has high Resist stat.

Champion Synergy

  • Vergis pairs well with tanky champions (e.g. Miscreated Monster) to 3-Star Normal-Hard-Brutal-Nightmare Campaign stages as both of them can wear down the enemy with their massive Defense, HP and High Recovery speed.
  • Vergis pairs well with Crowd Control champion (e.g. Alure) to tackle Normal-Hard-Brutal-Nightmare Campaign Bosses.
  • In addition, he is excellent in Fire Knight Dungeon, Minotaur’s Labyrinth and Clan Boss Speed Team Setup where he protects the champion in the Leader Position who is critical to the team (e.g. Champion Reviver such as Arbiter or a Team Buffer such as Apothecary).

Champion Limitation

  • If Vergis HP drops below 50% and his Continuous Heal does not heal him above 50%, his passive skill “Second Wind” will not be able to activate again! This can happen if multiple enemy target him to quickly reduce his HP before the Continuous Heal replenishes his HP above 50%.
  • To mitigate this limitation, I highly recommend using Lifesteal Set on him. I have experimented various sets such as Regeneration Set and Immortal Set, but they do not outperform Lifesteal Set in replenishing HP in the heat of battle (e.g. 2 champions solo Nightmare Campaign).

    @Toff, going to try the similar MM mastery set up as you suggested below. If not good for my circumstances will change to Off/Def instead of Def/Supp.

  2. matihm

    I put together a team of champions , who are rate 5* and i lost . I would love to see more videos paying attention to synergistic effects champions can have to defeat in dungeons.

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tony Paxton: I have added the missing Defense Mastery “Delay Death” for Vergis. Thanks for spotting the issue!

  4. Tony Paxton

    On Vergis’ Defense Masteries, you left out “DELAY DEATH” on the list below the screen shot. It should be #6, and the numbers below increased (there are 8 on the DEF side!

    This site is SOOOOO helpful, and your hard work is greatly appreciated!

  5. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    OooooOOOooh, a REVIEW. Very nice! This is pure gold, and if I come across more like that, even more kudos to you. This stuff is very time-consuming to produce, and we all appreciate it!

  6. toff

    tbh Vergis could be build with def/support tree (like miscreated monster – just with only “left side” of support tree).
    Giving him increased heals on him self an ally + extended duration of buffs ect.
    This would make him excellent allyprotection champ for CB ect if you dont want to use APO for speeding up whole team, but to just speed up 1 champ life for example doompriest or something (as even on normal build you speed them basicly permanently).
    I know his A1 does more dmg then for example Taylers A1 (but hits weaker then his A3 – something in the middle between them) but you dont take him for doing dmg tbh (even on Arena ect).

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    @JR: Thanks for the compliment. I hope it helps you in building your champion Vergis to perform well in battle.

  8. JR

    Your Vergis Review” where you break down purpose/synergy ect, brilliant…and exactly what novices like me that don’t deep dive into the game need for every character . I’m sure I have champs that would work so much better with different pairings for synergy. Great website, use it for every champ I have.

  9. Urtoroth

    I’ll got for some Lifesteal then (farming time is here!) :)
    Thanks a lot! :D

  10. Ayumilove Post author

    @Urtoroth: Personally, I highly recommend Lifesteal Set instead of Immortal Set and Rejuvenation Set as I have tested him in Nightmare Campaign battle. The other sets could not heal quick enough to allow his Passive Skill to kick in once his HP drops below 50% and his Continuous Heal is not able to replenish sufficient HP to recover from the heat from the battle (multiple enemies attacking simultaneously).

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @OrcLadyConnoisseur: Why do you think Vergis is overrated in Fire Knight?

  12. Urtoroth

    So, @Soragis and @Ayumilove which gearing options are better for him? Right now I only use him for Spider’s Den. Immortal + Def?

    This is my very first post (quoting Homer) and as someone said I use @Ayumilove’s recommendations on almost every champ I have (except for Ma’shalled). I do not close this pages. They are like gold for me (no one speaks but me in my clan :( )

  13. OrcLadyConnoisseur

    Seems a bit overrated in Fireknight from where I stand

  14. Soragis

    after some testing Immortal set if far better on him that rejuv than to the extra HP Immortal gives

  15. Soragis

    Also The buff Vergis cast is always placed on the 2nd Slot Unit when He is the Leader

  16. Soragis

    Rejvus set work great on him since the 10% scales of any toons max HP and unlike lifesteal which is based off the damage they deal. Then you factor in masteries they boost his heal and shield he casts that is a big bump to that 10% heal every turn. also since he has only his A1 as an attack you could double dip into def and support to make him insane which is what i am doing

  17. Steven Osborne

    anyone know if Rejuvenation works for him casting his own buff? doesnt seem like it does just seems like an odd choice is all

  18. Pastorscratchy

    Great review! I just got him right bf the new patch and really liked him but I didn’t want to put the time and effort to maxing him out bf I knew he could help carry a team. I have MC so I look forward to pairing them up. I really appreciate the work you put in to these reviews. I use your recommended setups on most of my characters. Thank you!

    @Kebab: I have re-tested Vergis Level 60 fully ascended and have re-rated him based on his revamped skills on Patch 1.14. I have also re-updated his equipment and mastery guide, and added my personal review on him in this page :)

  20. Kebab

    He’s very good now, any update on him?

  21. Angellum Manaflow

    hi, please correct Aegis skill

  22. Heavy10mm

    It seems like he should be rated higher. He’s a strong candidate, even though kinda limited. At least a B lol

  23. Sillak

    hey on his A1 you said it places a 30% reflect damage debuff on an ally, shouldn’t it be a buff not a debuff?

  24. Lordguppi

    I think the skill texts don’t accurate anymore. After patch 1.14.

    Aegis In addition to the original effects now places a 50% [Ally Protection] on all allies except for this Champion and a 60% [Increase DEF] on this Champion.
    Second Wind In addition to the original effect, now places a [Shield] buff on this Champion equal to 10% of the Champion’s MAX HP for 2 turns when this Champion loses 10% HP.

    Or it’s just my browser?

  25. Lost

    Since the rework is he better now? I feel like he has more utility now.

  26. PLYYLP

    does warmaster and giant slayer proc with reflect damage ? if so he will be great in clan boss

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @December19: Yes, Reflect Damage does work on all enemy champions.

  28. December19

    Does reflect damage work on raid boss?

  29. Egzy

    Yeah I think he could be quite useful in the arena now.

  30. Raayna

    What would his new rating be? After his buff

  31. Stumpreel

    I will be working on this champion on patch 1.14 and give you my opinion on him once I use him with full mastery/gear and booked.

  32. Ayumilove Post author

    @fnōrd: I also have Vergis (Epic Spirit champion) guarding my Vault. I couldn’t find any places to use him to optimize my runs from early-mid-late game. However, I believe he could be very useful as a tank bait in Spider’s Den (weak affinity) by equipping him with Frenzy Set. As he gets targeted by enemies, he will be able to recover quickly to activate his Passive Skill Continuous Heal to recover his HP and perform his attack/skills. Currently, the game does not offer a venue to farm Epic skill tomes apart from buying from the Shop with real-cash or obtaining it through Event. If the skill tomes were more farmable/accessible for F2P (Free to Play players), I might test him out to see his true potential and the benefits he brings to the table.

  33. fnōrd

    Well, the reviews look pretty grim for Vergis and I just summoned him with a long awaited sacred shard. So it goes. But maybe he’ll still turn out to be a diamond in the rough. I’m often short one durable enough def-based Spirit affinity team member for a lot of places. The reviews here show he’s not going to be more than mediocre except maybe in Void Keep, but I’ll see what I can do with him.
