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.

Vergis 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.
  • Vergis is an excellent solution for Doom Tower Scarab King as his passive skill auto applies Shield buff whenever he takes damage. This essentialy prevents triggering the Scrarab King counter attack passive skill. You can run 2 Vergis to support one another with Continuous Heal buff and gear both of them with Destroy Set to break Scarab King shield quickly. It’s advisable to have them with decent amount of Resist stat to prevent buff being stolen and provoked by the boss.

Vergis 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).

Vergis 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).
  • Vergis’s shield does not auto-recover when he receives damage from protecting his allies with Ally Protection buff! Hence, if you are using him for Borgoth the Scarab King in Doom Tower either Easy or Hard mode, it’s advisable to only have 2 Vergis to defeat the boss. However, you can use high damage output champions such as Seer to clear the 1st and 2nd wave quickly for the Scarab King mob waves, which primarily consists of Krisks that provides a large amount of Shield, Continuous Heal and Ally Protection. The champion helpers would need to be sufficiently squishy to die quickly from Scarab King’s counterattack or else it will steal Vergis’s allies buffs.
  • If you have a duplicate champion of Vergis, you can team 2 of them (without any other champions to fill the remaining 3 vacant champion slots) to defeat the Doom Tower Boss Borgoth the Scarab King on full auto! This is the only champion who can do it easily without needing to set up a team of 5 champions with the speed tuning, ensuring they have shield all the time and decreasing the turn meter of the boss to prevent him from stealing your champion buffs and counter-attacking those who do not have shield buff.

Vergis Reference

Arena, Doom Tower, Faction Wars

Below is a reference of the artifacts equipped on Vergis specialized for Doom Tower Hard against Borgoth the Scarab King. This setup can also be used in Arena and Faction Wars too. Vergis is equipped with Destroy Set to enable him to destroy the Scarab King’s shield that mitigates a portion of the damage received. Destroy Set is also excellent against champions who have a high amount of HP (Health aka Hit Points) and fast HP recovery. The equipment prioritizes high HP%, DEF%, C.RATE, RESIST and SPD stats. HP% stat allows Vergis to generate a large shield to protect himself whenever he is under attack. DEF% stat allows Vergis to increase his overall damage output and decreases the damage intake from enemy attacks. RESIST stat provides Vergis protection against any debuff placed by the enemies and also prevents them from performing instant negative effect on him such as stealing his buffs. C.RATE stat enables Vergis to deal higher amount of damage to clear the waves and boss quickly!

  1. Liam

    Does he need accuracy for his a1 reflect damage buff im thinkin of using him in fire knight

  2. RayvenRedd

    You have selected defiant skill but you are saying tough skin. Which should it be?

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @JP: Yes, 2 Vergis team is viable for Doom Tower Hard Scarb King. I have been using this strategy for a long time!

  4. JP

    Is a 2 Vergis team still viable on Scarab Hard?

  5. Dutch

    Wrath of slain in the first image is grayed out, as of not selected, but in the text below it says to get it. Just a heads up

  6. Strawberry369

    you should replace the stun/stalwart gear for speed or immortality.

  7. Gunsmoke22

    Any intermediate player can bypass him easily, he’s not even arena champ just a mid tier tank dungeon carry.

  8. Stratt

    Not broken in Arena. You just need a champ that can block armor or decrease defense. Or one that ignores defense. He goes down fairly easy, once you get that. I use Madame Serris against him all the time with no issues.

  9. VergisFan

    Mastery for Arena, Doom Tower and FW is down @ayumilove

  10. Gunsmoke22

    Stop fighting him with your starters.

  11. Fizzyx

    this champ is broken in arena defense. His A3 passive needs some tuning. Why is no one talking about this? Just took my team 10 seconds to kill the other 3 champs but then literally 14 minutes to kill Vergis in the latest battle against him on a team. This is recurrent…

  12. FIZZYX

    This champion is broken in arena defense. His A3 passive needs tuning. Why is no one talking about this it seems??

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    @Dallas: Selfless Defender only works once and its best used for Arena where there is heavy nuking taking place. If you plan to use Vergis for Arena only, then Selfless Defender would be a good choice. However, you will need to build Vergis with a high amount of HP to be able to tank the damage from his allies.

  14. Dallas

    So I’m filling out the mysteries on my verges, and I’m debating going with “selfless defender” instead of “deterance” Thoughts?

  15. Ron Rugmuncher

    He is t the only one who can tank Scarab King. Madam S can solo the scarab king.

  16. Huch

    Verg is on two of my 20 teams. Not a whale so when I find a versatile Champ I over use them to a certain extent. Verg is hard to kill and I know he has only single hitter but I pulled Alure this past weekend and couldn’t get past 18 Fire. She died at a drop of a hat even after stealing gear from other toons to bolster def and hp. So dropped Verg in lead and placed her in his buff spot and now have slow but 100% lvl 20 fire team. His speed buff keeps Alure way ahead of fire knight and have Stag so reduce speed and his buffs makes 20 super easy. Max him out if you pull and you are new will carry you even on wrong affinity.

  17. Cory Price

    I can’t kill this MFer in Arena because all my champions are multi-hitters and he resists everything. Definitely broken on arena Defense.

  18. Sylindria

    Vergis is listed twice. Under A, and F.

  19. daddyy

    Nevermind, it’s just that you have him in both A and F 🙂

  20. daddyy

    Why in the world is he F-ranked?

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @pr4ger: I would not recommend using Madame Serris for Scarab King since she will be built primarly high Accuracy and low Resist. Hence, the Scarab King can steal all the buffs applied by Vergis on Madame Serris, which makes it difficult in the long run especially on Hard mode.

  22. Grand daddy

    3* in defence??? Are you mental?!?! He literally cannot be killed if you just give him HP, and the ally protection keeps everyone else alive. The shield, the increased speed, the reflect damage. Think you should re-evaluate that one.

  23. pr4ger

    Same thing: Vergis in destroy set = solo Scarab. Add Madame Serris for def down and speed (she has built in shield)

  24. Vino

    LOL I solo Scarab King on Floor 30 Doom Tower with Vergis while everyone else died on turn 3… it was a loooonnnnggggg fight but he carried the whole thing all by himself.

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Fracture: I think the question should be forwarded to Plarium for their reasons behind designing it in such a way 🙂

  26. Fracture

    So I have this issue at spider where Vergis is lead and I have him set up to put buffs on Armiger, by slotting Armiger in the far right position, however whenever the battle starts, different champ is slotted in the far right position and once the battle is over, the positions also reflect the change in the champ select menu… Just why?

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @Dave: The in-game rating is often inaccurate. Previously before Vergis was buffed, players who use Vergis had rated badly. However, after the Vergis is buffed to be viable in many areas, newer players who used him find him good, applies the good rating. As a result, the rating now is a mix bag of good rating (from buff) and bad rating (before buff). Plarium did not reset the ratings of a champion after buffing them or nerfing them. I used Vergis in Fire Knight 20 (the last stage of the dungeon) and I found him viable for his protection towards the Lead champion and also his Reflect Damage against the Boss shield. He will allow you to clear Fire Knight 20 without fail but it will take time. You will eventually substitute him with other champions to speed farm Fire Knight 20.

  28. Dave

    lol! Just want to make it known. The in-game rating for Vergis right now for Fire knight is 3.7. I am super curious why he is rated 5 star on this page.

  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @Zorlac 700: To counter Vergis, you need a single high damage attack to nuke him or another way is to apply Block Debuff, so he can’t apply his Shield and Continuous Heal. However, if the enemy pairs Vergis with a Block Debuff and Remove Debuff champion, you will be having a tough time.

  30. Ayumilove Post author

    @john: I used Lifesteal Set on Vergis and paired him with Miscreated Monster to clear Nightmare Campaign 3 Stars all stages except for the Nightmare Campaign 12-7 (this one requires a champion with unkillable such as Paragon).

  31. Alistair

    I just faced my first Vergis just today at arena and had my top damage dealers. None of them could kill this guy. Kept on healing and had a shield buff too. Won’t go past half his health. This champion is tough one

  32. john

    has anyone actually used life steal set on him? seems like a poor set on him since he can’t utilize it accept his a1 and even then it’s weak….

  33. Zorlac 700

    Vergis Just beat me two times in a row in arena. I had three legendary champions going against him and I could not kill him. He is a beast.

  34. CYS, MD

    @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.

  35. 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.

  36. Ayumilove Post author

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

  37. 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!

  38. 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!

  39. 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).

  40. Ayumilove Post author

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

  41. 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.

  42. Urtoroth

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

  43. 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).

  44. Ayumilove Post author

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

  45. 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 🙁 )

  46. OrcLadyConnoisseur

    Seems a bit overrated in Fireknight from where I stand

  47. Soragis

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

  48. Soragis

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

  49. 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

  50. 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

  51. 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!

  52. Ayumilove Post author

    @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 🙂

  53. Kebab

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

  54. Angellum Manaflow

    hi, please correct Aegis skill

  55. Heavy10mm

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

  56. 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?

  57. 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?

  58. Lost

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

  59. PLYYLP

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

  60. Ayumilove Post author

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

  61. December19

    Does reflect damage work on raid boss?

  62. Egzy

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

  63. Raayna

    What would his new rating be? After his buff

  64. 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.

  65. 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.

  66. 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.
