The winner of Raid: Shadow Legends’ 2021 Community Champion Concept Contest designed a new Champion, Kalvalax, who is a powerful poison damage dealer.
Raid: Shadow Legends is a popular fantasy-themed video game. It takes place in the fantasy world of Teleria. However, the world has recently been taken over by the Dark Lord, Siroth. It is now up to the players to retake the planet.
The game features various activities for players to do. Additionally, they can explore multiple in-game areas. However, it is advised that they familiarise themselves with the Affinity system before they participate in an activity or go exploring.
There are four types of Affinities in the game, and players need to have knowledge of them all to be successful in battle. They should remember that three of the Affinities exist in balance with one another, while the other one offers no particular advantages or disadvantages over the others. The following table indicates the name of the Affinity and its properties:
|Name of Affinity||Properties|
|Force (Red)||This Affinity is strong against Magic but has a disadvantage against Spirit.|
|Void (Purple)||The Void Affinity features no counter, or weaknesses, against other Affinities.|
|Magic (Blue)||It has an advantage against Spirit, however, Magic is weak against Force Affinities.|
|Spirit (Green)||Even though Spirit has a disadvantage against Magic, it is strong against Force.|
Once players understand all the Affinities, they can assemble an army of Champions. Players can use their Champions for battles in castles, dungeons, temples and deserts. These areas are usually defended by various enemies. Players should ensure that their Champions are strong enough to win the battles.
It is important to note that there are four types of Champions: Support, Health Points, Defence and Attack. Each type of Champion features distinct skills and abilities. Players should thus choose their Champion wisely.
Players are able to collect more Champions by using Shards, which contain the souls of ancient warriors. Once the players have collected the required Shards, they can summon a warrior at the in-game Summoning Portal.
It is important to remember that there are four different Shards, and each summons a different type of Champion. The following table indicates the different Shards and the rarity of warriors each Shard can summon:
|Shard name||Rarity of warriors|
|Ancient Shard||Players have a 91.5 percent to obtain a rare Champion with this Shard, but there is an eight percent chance that it will summon an epic Champion, and a 0.5 percent chance for it to summon a legendary Champion.|
|Mystery Shard||The Shards have a 74.2 percent chance of summoning a common Champion. Additionally, it has a 24.4 percent chance to summon an uncommon Champion, and a 1.4 percent chance to summon a rare Champion.|
|Void Shard||A Void Shard has a 91 percent chance of summoning a rare Champion. Additionally, it has an eight percent chance of summoning an epic Champion, and a 0.5 percent chance for a legendary Champion.|
|Sacred Shard||With this Shard, players stand a 94 percent chance at obtaining an epic Champion. However, it has a six percent chance to summon a legendary Champion.|
One of the Champions that players can obtain in the game is Kalvalax. He is a Legendary Spirit Champion, that was designed by the winner of the 2021 Community Champion Concept Contest.
Kalvalax’s skills and abilities
It is important to note that Kalvalax’s kit is heavily focussed on laying out poison. The poisons also have the ability to increase the Champion’s damage. The following table indicates the name and a description of Kalvalax’s skills:
|Skill / ability||Description|
|Pestilence||This passive skill applies four and five percent poison debuffs on all enemies for two turns at the start of each round. Whenever an enemy places a poison debuff on this Champion, it instantly removes it and replaces it with a 15 percent continuous heal buff for two turns. This skill has a one turn cooldown.|
|Storm of Vitriol||This skill attacks all enemies. However, the damage increases according to the number of poisons debuffs on each target. It is important to note that this skill has a four-turn cooldown.|
|Corruption Locus||Kalvalax only attacks one enemy. But it applies an extra hit for each poison debuff on the target. It has a three-turn cooldown.|
|Oozing Great sword||This skill only attacks one enemy; however, it has a 40 percent chance of increasing the duration of all poison debuffs on the target. Additionally, it heals the Champion by 2.5 percent of their maximum health for each debuff on the target.|
Raid: Shadow Legends is a popular turn-based game, which allows players to collect various Champions. One of the Champions that players can obtain is Kalvalax, a Legendary Spirit unit. He was designed by the winner of the Community Champion Concept Contest.
