RAID: Shadow Legends – Bad El Kazar Champion Guide

RAID: Shadow Legends, the popular turn-based RPG game developed by Plarium that recently had a collaboration with popular streamer/content creator Tyler “Ninja” Blevins for 3 months. Plarium is continuously pushing out new champions and fusions at its players which add to the roster of over 600 champions now. However, today we are going to be looking at one of the old school most wanted champions in RAID: Shadow Legends – Bad El Kazar, the legendary Force affinity champion from the Undead Hordes faction.

RAID: Shadow Legends – Bad El Kazar Champion Guide

Bad El Kazar is a Support based legendary grade Force affinity champion from the Undead Hordes faction. He is one of the few old champions that has stood the test of times and still proves to be deadly for almost every PvE area. He is a menace to be dealt with his continuous heals and poisons as well as heals. He also enables allies to deal more damage to enemies who are under poison debuffs. He is also one of the few legendary grade champions that require very few legendary books to completely skill up his skills. As well all know how scarce these resources are, all these reasons make him a menace to deal with as well as a desire for many players who have not yet summoned him. Bad El Kazar’s aura provides all allies with a 25% Critical Hit Rate in all battles. This aura is extremely useful for DPS units. Bad El Kazar, even though he is classified in the game as a Support type unit, can dish out massive damage if he is built with more damage and speed. He can solo out most of the content in terms of bosses like Dragons, Ice Golem Dungeon, and Minotaurs Labyrinth. Let’s take a more in-depth look at his skill set.

Bad El Kazar Champion Skills

Bad El Kazar, the legendary grade champion is definitely one of the most wanted units for almost every player who understands meta in the game. The champion is consistently ranked high in tier lists from as far back as 2019. How does he do this? The magic lies in the synergy of his skills. His skill set is so highly synchronized that he feels like a complete package and does not rely on other champions to enable him. On the other hand, he has the ability to enable other champions.  Bad El Kazar boasts legendary tier base stats like 20,000 HP, 1079 Attack, 1156 Defense, and 102 Speed at level 60 max awakened. He also takes a very low amount of the already scarce legendary books so he can easily max skilled.

His 1st ability Dark Sphere is an AOE damaging skill that also heals all allies and himself by 20% of the damage dealt by this skill. This is a great spell as it is on his basic attacks. This skill’s damage scales according to his Attack so we recommend building some amount of attack on Bad El Kazar as he is more of offensive support. His 2nd skill Malice is an AOE cleanse and damaging skill that is a total menace. He cleanses all debuffs from all allies, places 2 stacks of continuous heals for 2 turns on all allies as well as 2 turns of poison debuffs on all enemies for 2 turns. This skill can be skilled up to reduce the cooldown to only 3 turns. He can effectively cycle between this skill to have so much healing and damage through his poison debuffs. His passive is his 3rd skill Prey Upon which states that all allies deal 20% more damage to targets who are under Poison debuffs. This passive synergizes so well with his skills as he can deal Poison debuffs himself to all enemies using his 2nd skill Malice. His Aura is also giving a 25% critical hit to all allies in all battles.

Bad El Kazar Mastery Guide

Bad El Kazar is a great support-type champion, but due to his skill kits, he has to be built a bit more offensive to truly do justice to his kit. His skills scale with his attack power and the more he does damage the more he can heal his allies. He is a great source of healing and damage combined and we can see this with his skill 2 Malice. Players are free to choose the builds and masteries they prefer depending on the type of content they are planning to use this champion in. For example, if you are planning to use Bad El Kazar in PVP content, then you would like to go for more damage-oriented masteries like Helmsmasher. If you are planning to use Bad El Kazar for dungeons or PvE content like Doom Tower and Clan boss, then we recommend going for masteries like Warmaster. However, in this guide, we will also the masteries used for Bad El Kazar solo dragon which is one of the most popular tactics associated with Bad El Kazar.

Bad El Kazar Artifact and Stat Recommendations

Bad El Kazar is a great addition to any PvE team in need of support. He is not your traditional support though, he can crazily rack up the amount of damage he can do and also amplify the amount of damage done by your team in general with his passive Prey Upon. We recommend building Bad El Kazar for PvE first and if you have a stable PvE team for most of the content like dungeons and affinity keeps then we recommend moving on to focus on PvP. However, there are just our preferences and in no way or form, these are absolute or must. Feel free to take pleasure in testing out different builds and masteries to get the feel of your champion.

Keep in mind that we do not include stats as they are variable according to your artifacts. We just provide the Set values and stats the players should be aiming for. With that in mind, let’s explore Bad El Kazar’s Artifact and Stat preferences:

PvE Artifact Sets Lifesteal Set, Speed Set, Perception Set, Divine Speed Set, Cruel Set, and Immortal Set.

PvP Artifact Sets: Speed Set, Accuracy Set, Perception Set, and Immortal Set

Stats to Focus On (PvE): Accuracy, Speed, Critical Hit Rate%, Critical Hit Damage%

Bad El Kazar Team Building and Synergies

The most beautiful thing about Bad El Kazar is that he can fit into any team very easily due to his buffs and debuffs. His skills do not rely on other champions to work for him to enable him. He, in turn, enables other champions by amplifying their damage dealt by 20% to enemies under Poison debuffs. However, this does not mean he needs to have champions who bring Poison debuffs as he can inflict those debuffs by himself, that too for 2 turns. The highest testimony to his solo potential is that he can clear out Dragons Den Dungeon at the highest difficulty without any help just by himself. Of course, this feat does require some good gear along with it but this is a great feat nonetheless. Hence, we won’t be giving any recommendations here simply because there are none. Players use him with their strongest heroes, especially 2 DPS since he can easily keep them alive with his continuous heals and healing on 1st skill as well.
