What are Starter Champions?
To help your journey in the RAID: Shadow Legends world, the game gives players one starter Champion at the beginning, after players have finished all of the brief tutorials. Players will have to pick one from four given starter champions.
- Athel: Sacred Order Champion. Has the ability to weaken the enemies and AoE attack.
- Galek: Orc Champion, Attack type. He has very high speed, multi-target ability, and defensive debuff.
- Kael: Dark Elf Attack Champion with poisons and AoE skills.
- Elhain: High Elves Attack Champion, critical hits, AoE ability.
One of the easiest ways to know which champions are great, which are not, is based on their rarity.
There are 5 Champion rarity levels in RAID: Shadow Legends:
Common Champions (Grey)
They have the highest chance to drop and they are all fodders. This means, most of the time, you want to use them to ascend, upgrade and level up other higher-rarity Champions.
They have a grey frame border around their avatar, that’s why people usually call them Grey.
Uncommon Champions (Green)
Similar to Common Champions, you want to use them as the fodders for higher rarity Champions. You can use them at the early game but they will quickly get overshadowed by Rare Champions. It’s very easy to obtain them and they have more abilities than Common Champions.
Rare Champions (Blue)
Rare Champions are your best friends during the early stage of the game. They are a bit hard to obtain.
As Rare Champions offer more abilities and are much stronger than uncommon and common Champions, you want to sacrifice uncommon and common Champions to strengthen the Rare Champions.
There are many Rare Champions which are still very great in the late game.
Epic Champions (Purple)
Most Epic Champions provide impressive base stats as well as a lot of utilities for the combats in the game. They are your best choices during the mid-game even to late game, when you don’t have Legendary Champions nor have enough books to upgrade them.
Legendary Champions (Gold)
Legendary Champions are the top tier rarity in the game. They have the most game-changing abilities that can be super useful in almost any lineup.
Types of Champions in RAID: Shadow Legends can easily describe their roles in team composition. There are 4 types in total and it’s recommended to have various Champion types in your bag in order to deal with different situations in the game.
These Champions are great at dealing damage. Although other types can deal some decent amount of damage, you always want to have at least an Attack type Champion in your team formation.
Defense type Champions have Defense skill set. They have debuffs that disrupt the enemies while increasing ally’s HP, DEF and some other stats.
HP Type Champions are the tanks of the game. They can soak a lot of damage to protect the allies while also wielding their useful secondary skills.
They work very well with the skills which can distract the enemies and prevent them from attacking the weaker Champions in the team.
They support all of the other Champions in the team by giving healings, friendly buffs or casting debuffs to the enemies. With just only a few exceptions, you do not want to play them as the tank or main damage dealers in your team.
They are, of course, an important part of any team. Without Support type Champions, you team will become a lot weaker, more vulnerable and will usually even don’t have enough damage to take out the enemies.
Affinity is the tight connection between all of the RAID: Shadow Legends Champions.
There are 4 types of Affinity in total. Three of them share a rock-paper-scissors relationship and one does not have any advantage/disadvantage over any other.
Stronger affinity deals extra damage against the weaker one and vice-versa.
