Raid Shadow Legends: Michinaki

Michinaki is a new Legendary Champion in Raid: Shadow Legends, and he is considered one of the best characters in the game.

In this adventurous mobile game, Raid: Shadow Legends, players can explore the vast open world of Teleria while enjoying strategic battles. Unfortunately, the world has been colonised by a powerful dark lord called Siroth.

In these horrific times, it is your duty as the player to defeat Siroth and fight for the future of mankind. On your quest to defeat the dark lord, you can collect and use various Champions who are essentially the characters in the game.

Raid: Shadow Legends’ developer, Plarium, recently introduced Michinaki, who is regarded as one of the best Champions in the game.

How to acquire Champions

Collecting Champions is crucial, as you need to build a strong team that can succeed in difficult battles.

There are 5 categories of Champion rarities, namely, common, uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary. Common characters are the easiest to acquire, while Legendary are the most difficult.

Most of the champions can be procured through the summoning system, which takes place in the Portal. When you use the summoning feature, you will obtain a random champion in return for a shard and some silver.

The summoning rates and the probability of summon champions of specific rarities are determined by the type of shard that you use.

Raid Shadow Legends: Michinaki

Since Michinaki is a Legendary Champion, you can use an Ancient shard, a Void Shard, or a Sacred Shard to summon him.

However, his drop rates are extremely low, which means that you only have a 0.5 percent chance of acquiring him when you use an Ancient or a Void Shard. If you use a Sacred Shard, there is only a 6 percent that you will collect Michinaki.
