    @monkeymon07 no if you have StagKnight you don’t need warmaden they do the same thing and stag has better stats, you do need to grab a skill in the mastery tree to bring stag up to 100% chance as sadly he only has 95% chance to get the decreased def unlike maidens 100%.

    Now that said you can still build her for a second team to use in the tag team pvp as she is still a farmable champ.

  2. postandin77

    I show S3 is 30% Decrease Def Debuff with it fully upgraded, did they nerff her skill?

  3. Daniel

    I have a nice Swift Parry set and I am wondering which champion I can put it on. Would she be a good option?

  4. mokeymon07

    @ayumlove, i recently pulled stag knight from an ancient shard, immediately build him up to add to my dungeon team, does it still make sense to build warmaiden at this point?

  5. Rick

    @Ayumilove , thank you so much for your detail reply, keep up the good work

  6. Ayumilove Post author

    @Rick: Warmaiden benefits more from Warmaster as this Tier 6 Offense Mastery can deal extra damage to bosses. Once you have gathered sufficient champions to support her in terms of healing and revive, Offense Mastery and Offense Equipment Setup benefits her more as she is Attack Role Champion. For early game players, you can build her as offensive as possible because enemies does not have much defense to rely on. Mid game players, build her as defensive as possible, because the mobs are becoming more difficult to kill in just 1-2 hits. During that time, you will just want to survive and keep landing AoE Decrease Defense. Late game, switch her to full offensive again with some balance defense stats.

    Here is my current Warmaiden stats to farm Dragon 20 under 2 minutes: 38K HP, 3.2K Attack, 1.5K Defense, 192 Speed, 100% Critical Rate, 160% Critical Damage, 130 Resist, 238 Accuracy. The mastery used for this champion is shown in the guide above.

    Also, if all of your champions are above 180 speed supported by a Speed Booster champion, you will take approximately 2 turns of the enemy turn in Dungeons, hence you would rely less on Defense since you can destroy the enemies faster by putting as much damage to knock them out before they have the chance to counter attack you. However, you will need the gears and the powerful nuking champions to accomplish this.

  7. Rick

    If we only need her DEF, for her MASTERY why don’t we use support and Defense only, anyone try this set before?
    If we jut want to keep her stay alive as long as we can, why don’t we just Defense and Support in her MASTERY ? thanks

  8. Harris

    Personally, I would go Crit rate on gloves, ACC on chest, speed boots, then DEF across ALL THREE accessories. Chest and Banner are interchangeable. One go ACC, the other go DEF. As long as she survives with 2000-ish DEF, she will constantly do work for you with those AOE DEF down.

  9. Harris

    Dear @Axaurina, with all due respect, you are using (gearing) her wrongly. She is mainly good NOT for her damage, but for her AOE strong DEF down that is almost guaranteed to land, something EVEN RHAZIN COULDN’T GIVE YOU. If you don’t have legendaries that give you this utility, Warmaiden is pretty much the next best option. You are not supposed to build primary for damage. Rather, you should go ACC sets with probably 1 speed or DEF set. Get to 200 ACC then start stacking DEF. If you manage to reach high ACC without the banner, go DEF banner to make sure she doesn’t die in dungeons. She is top tier in dungeons that suits her affinity.

  10. Dargentina


    I guess you could go with speed x3, but is better to also take advantage of offense.

    Basically, the classic combo is
    Spirit Host ( +50% att to team)
    Warmaiden ( -60% def enemy, and AoE damage buffed by Spirithost))
    Kael/Athel/Elhain (AoE att, dmage boosted by Spirithost, and increased further by def reduction)
    4th hero up to you. Could be High Kathun/Apothecary/Diabolist can go first than Spirithost, or Relickeeper/Hordin/any finisher that should go last.

    If WM goes first, she’ll be missing the 50% att boost, which can be the difference between killing the opponents, or they surviving and turning the battle.

  11. Dargentina


    Pretty much all heros are “trash” without being booked. That’s the whole point of the game, getting repeats, and books (and the way they make money).

    But Warmaiden can be farmed relatively easy for repeats (basically, books)
    Deadlands don’t drop common heros, and there are 2 decent rares. Wichever you get, it’s worth farming for a F2P.
    It is also decent stage to farm both exp and silver, if you’re not strong enough for Brutal.

    If you’re putting cash in the game, then of course you’ll do much better with Stag Knight, but he too can be considered “trash” unbooked, since he’s even more vulnerable than Warmaiden (against all the main heros -Kael, Athel, etc-) due affinity.

    So, no, she’s NOT food at all.
    You can’t really define a hero just by his basic stats, much less a hero that can be maxed easily.

  12. Permeus

    If we only really care about her for the defensive debuff wouldn’t be better to gear her with speed X3?

  13. Christian

    @Axaurina The reason why she is considered high-tier is not because of her damage but because she is the only Rare Champion who has a strong version of Decrease Defense with 100% chance to land when booked up on a 3-turn cooldown. She is farmable in Campaign so she is very accessible.

    If you are F2P, you definitely shouldn’t use her as food. Build her with high Accuracy so she can land her debuff ’cause that’s mostly what she’s all about.

  14. Axaurina

    I’m sorry but this champion comes with a huge asterisk. It should be made clear she is TRASH until booked up. Her AOE even with tip-top gear does very low damage, the debuff never seems to land when it needs to, and she is FAR squishier than many green heroes.

    If you are going F2P this girl is best used for food. Skirmisher is doing more AOE damage than she does at rank 3 level ONE with comparable gear. maybe Warmaiden has been nerfed since this guide but her dps is appalingly low.

  15. Jay

    It can apparently drop from any of the campaign 9-1 thru 9-7 doesnt matter which one you do maybe a higher chance on 7 but no definitive proof.

  16. Joshua M.

    In what stage at the Deadlands level is farmable to get Warmaiden quickly?

  17. FeiLing

    (had to comment again because the smaller/larger symbols I used were interpreted by the website and blanked out the text in between them LUL)


    “Increases the Base Stat Set Bonuses of all Artifact Sets that increase Base Stats by 15%.”

    English as a language isn’t very clear in the way this sentence is worded.
    While it could mean Lore of Steel only affects “Artifact Sets that increase Base Stats by 15%”,
    it actually means, that it improves “ALL Artifact Sets (that increase Base Stats)” by 15%.

    So every Set Bonus that grants HP, ATK, DEF, SPD, C.RATE, C.DMG, RESIST or ACC is improved by 15%.

  19. KirbyMorph

    Why do you recommend the mastery that increases gear set bonus for ones that give 15% when you recommend speed and lifesteal, both 12% set bonuses? It’s recommended on lot of different champs, but maybe I’m missing something.

  20. Arkkinite


    Mind you, while Stag Knight’s multipliers on his A2 is low, it is respectably high on his A1, so his single target damage is no slouch either.

    If you have the books to skill up Stag Knight, then Stag Knight is almost better than Warmaiden in all ways; he is faster, way tankier, has Decrease Speed, can help allies land debuffs if enemies resist debuffs the previous round (except affinity issues and straight up AOE damage capacity and expensive to book)

  21. Kerry Kewandway

    No story line?

  22. Jesper Nielsen

    @Begone! You need to go first and drop the other team. That’s all she’s about in arena, although she can also deliver some respectable single target damage to help clean up.
    Trust me she’s worth it – she’s also currently on my Dragon 20 team.

  23. Begone!

    Warmaiden somehow for me never performed well. Getting and booking is not so much of a problem, so had her a couple of times. Also, encounter her often in Arena (Bronze IV) is opponents teams. She is always the first to go down, even if I do not attack her directly. Really squishy. I see the rational for getting that defense down, but I never really saw it working…

  24. FajnaGrzywa

    @Shahram I am currently only a mid if not low tier f2p player so do not take for granted what I suggest :)

    I my opinion you should never, never book a champion that can be farmed. Those books can be used on some other of your champions. Spend some energy, farm those 13 additional Warmiadens and use your books on other heroes.

  25. WiredDPS

    As for the Stag Knight V Warmaiden discussion, here are my thoughts.
    Stag Knight has more utility. He places not just a 60% Def down but also a 50% Atk down and a Speed reduction.
    Warmiaden only has the 60% Def down.
    On the other had Warmaiden has higher dmg multiplier, a small poison buff and can do a 50% Atk plus buff on here A2.
    So in conclusion Warmaiden is more geared towards doing a lot of dmg where Stag Knight is more a support role. I personally use him in almost every team I have

  26. Shahram

    Hey Nihilism, I’ve got Stag Knight and Warmaiden. Neither is booked. From my standpoint, I can book Warmaiden pretty quickly. She will have a 100% chance (still need accuracy) to drop a big AOE reduce defense. Stag Knight, however, will need tons of books to max out at 95% chance of doing the same AOE reduce defense. For me, I’m going to focus on Warmaiden until I get more books for the upgraded version of her; Stag Knight. For you, I’d say you’re already good with Stag Knight!

  27. Nihilism

    Having both Stag Knight (6*, 60, full masteries/booked) and Tayrel (6*, 60, full maateries, partially booked) is she worth using at this point? I kinda skipped over her as I got Stag Knight around the same time and now I’m starting to second guess it.

  28. Kemenanga

    If we are going to use her for dungeons 15-20, what should her accuracy be at?

  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @Bonanca: The ranking calculation is described at the bottom of this page https://ayumilove.net/raid-shadow-legends-list-of-champions-by-ranking/

  30. Ayumilove Post author

    @Grank: Warmaiden applies 60% Decrease Defense to allow all the members in the team to deal more damage. It also vastly improve the damage of Warmaster and Giant Slayer (Tier 6 Offense Mastery) against Bosses. To break the Shield faster, use Shield Breaker mastery (Tier 2 Offense Mastery) on Warmaiden.

  31. Bonanca


    That’s the point. Warmaiden is BETTER, but still only A Rank.
    Why only A Rank and not S Rank?

  32. Grank

    why is she rated 5 stars in Magic Keep? Magic Keep is about that shield. Warmaiden can’t remove the shield, can’t steal the shield, can’t prevent the shield from being put up, can’t ignore the shield, so what does she bring to the table here?

  33. 下等生物

    @Jai: Total stats is already there, on the bottom right.

  34. Jai

    Maybe you can add a screenshot of total stats screen for the champions! It’ll just help breakdown and understand the champion better.

  35. Ayumilove Post author

    @Bruuhaha: Warmaiden is much more versatile in almost all categories compared to Aothar. Plus, she is farmable in Campaign. I still use her up to very end game (to complete Arbiter Progress Mission) due to lack of RNG providing good champions opening shards.

  36. Bruuhaha

    Based on her above ratings shouldn’t she be classified as S in rank. Comparing her to other epic heroes of the same current rank(A) and Role(Attack) She has more stars in almost every category. For example Aother is an Epic Attack champion you have listed as an A rank yet doesn’t measure up to your ratings of Warmaiden. I’m not being sarcastic, I use your site everyday and love it just trying to understand your system better or maybe pointing out an error.

  37. Jethro Luiken

    I have 3 warmaidens, what should i do with them? Just level up all three?

  38. R23wewe


    Thank you for explanation, the thing is i got Tayrel right after Warmaiden, so i started from him. Now i think having both of them in the same team is too much. Am i right?

  39. James

    My novice opinion – build up the one you have and farm more of her for when you need to fuse. Then you can decide when you need to build the one for Justiciar. She’s so valuable for f2p, until you need Justiciar, I’d suggest you build up the one you have for your teams. When you need to do the fusion, getting her to level 30 is 24 runs on Brutal 12-3 (double XP), so once you have a copy it’s really easy to do.

    As an aside, my Warmaiden has a Stun set on, and it’s so much fun. In the arena, it’s nice to get the decrease defense and then an extra turn on those stunned champions.

  40. R23wewe

    Hey, should i rank warmaiden to 4 or leave her at rank 3 and aim converting into justiciar? Thank you

  41. Ayumilove Post author

    @XuniX: As ALEXANDRE CALDAS DE OLIVEIRA has mentioned, you would want Warmaiden to survive longer in battle as higher level dungeons are much more tougher and deals a lot of damage in 1 hit. To progress for Warmaiden from early-mid game, you can use ATK% (Attack), C.RATE (Critical Rate), C.DMG (Critical Damage) stat gears on her to clear the waves fast since the enemies have low pool of health and defense. Once you want to proceed above Dungeons 14, its recommended transitioning all gears to aid her survivability. This means equipping her with DEF% (Defense) Chestplate, Defense Rings and Necklace with Defense substats. She will be there in the team setup for her 60% Decrease Defense. This is crucial to speed up dungeon runs. She will also need a considerable amount of Accuracy for her debuff to land. For end-game, you need to stack up at least 220 Accuracy for her to successfully land her debuff consistently.


    @XuniX you want her alive as much as possible so she can place more debuffs, thats her role in your comp

  43. XuniX

    Why the def% stat on gauntlets in dungeons? Wouldn’t it make more sense to have atk% stat on gauntlets and chestplate, since it is an attack based champion?

  44. Ayumilove Post author

    @aindril: Warmaiden is useful in both areas in early-mid game (Clan Boss Easy/Normal/Hard and Spider’s Den 1-14) for the 60% Decrease Defense. Try it out and you will be amazed by the results :) I have been using her for a very long time (Level 60 and 6 Star) before I received any decent champion to replace her.

  45. aindril

    Too overrated in my opinion.
    5 stars in CB?
    5 stars in Spider’s den?

  46. Black Knight F2P

    Warmaidan is best farmable champion in the game, she can be part of your teams in almost all content this game have to offer, dungeons, campagna etc..You will definitely not use her in CB. And here’s why:
    1. She is attack base champion which means low Def, Even if you want to use her you will need very good gear…. she takes place unnecessarily…
    2. All up to Brutal CB you don’t need decrease def… it’s good to have DD but it’s not that important it’s much better to have poisons, sped, decreased attack.. and HP Burn…
    All in all F2P, New players, use her she is great champion….
    My opinion based on experience until now…

  47. Lambo

    Hi, I want to ask if I may, why is warmaidan a top tier clan boss champion? Is it the A1 or the decrease defense?

  48. Veilz

    My bad. Was sloppy and didnt read ascension part

  49. Veilz

    Skill 3 is only 30% nowdays or am i reading the ingame description wrong?

  50. Ayumilove Post author

    @ModifiedB13: Thanks for highlighting the error!. I have corrected the typo “Swam Smiter” to “Swarm Smiter” in the Support Mastery list for Warmaiden.

  51. ModifiedB13

    Support mastery #3.. man I hope that’s not right..

  52. grgr

    gauntlets should t have critical rate ? instead of critical damage

  53. Trooper1980

    My friend Warmaiden is the first to make the attack in the arena, wouldn’t it be more appropriate to include Ruthless Ambush in place of Whirlwind of Death? because as a first attacker she will not kill anyone?
