With the implementation of Awakening and Blessings system in Raid Shadow Legends, you are now able to strengthen your champions to deal more damage and sustain heavy damage against the Hydra Clan Boss. This guide explores each blessing rarity to identify the ones suited for your hydra clan boss teams!
Hydra Clan Boss Blessings
Brimstone blessing applies Smite debuff on the enemy and it deals damage based on your Champion’s MAX HP and a portion of the enemy’s MAX HP similar to HP Burn mechanics. However, the damage activation is triggered when the enemy performs Active Skills (skill with a cooldown) rather than taking their turn, and it does not stack like Poison debuff. This blessing is suitable for champions who are tanky with a high amount of Health and used in multiple areas in the game, especially for dungeon solos. Recommended Champions: Ninja
Intimidating Presence blessing improves your champion leader aura (aka Team Aura) while reducing the enemy’s aura effects simultaneously. However, Hydra Clan Boss does not have any Aura to start with. Hence, it’s best to choose Brimstone blessing to deal more damage and have an Epic champion be equipped in Commanding Presence blessing to maximize your damage output for all champion rarities in your hydra teams!
Cruelty blessing is a must-have for Hydra as it reduces the boss defenses up to 20% at Level 6 Awakening. It’s recommended to equip this blessing to only a single champion as having it on multiple champions does not exceed the defense cap reduction. In addition, the selected champion should have AoE (Area of Effect) attack to reduce all of the Hydra heads defenses with this Cruelty blessing. This blessing stacks with Crushing Rend blessing effects too! Recommended Champions: Geomancer, Husk, Mighty Ukko, Nekmo Thaar, Royal Guard.
