RAID: Shadow Legends – Astralon Champion Guide
The latest champion available to the players by Fusion Method was Astralon, the Sacred Judge from the Sacred Order Faction in RAID: Shadow Legends This Valentines Fusion Champion Astralon was deemed a must Fuse Champion regardless of the resources spent because his skillset and utility as a champion is unmatched in Arena. Recently, players are seeing Plarium releasing the new Fusion Champions to be used in specific content in the game or to counter the existing meta champions in Arena. For example, Pyxniel the Christmas Fusion for countering Tormin Arena Defenses and Iron Brago for helping the players in Doom Tower.
Astralon is a Magic Affinity Legendary Champion from the Sacred Order faction in the game. He is an Attack based champion with a high Base Attack of 1619. His Damage multipliers on his AOE are really good as well. However, his kit revolves around countering certain Arena Defenses. He can be extremely helpful in a cleave setup with champions like Madame Serris, Siphi, and High Khatun. Hence, he can be helpful for players who don’t have a strong AOE Attacker to sweep Arena defenses fast to save time or complete the Arena Rush Events which usually take place once a week in-game.
Astralon Champion Skills
Astralon’s Skillset is a good combination for countering specific Arena Defenses. He is mainly an Arena-based champion as his kit provides the means to counter champions that rely on Veil or Perfect Veil buffs. His 3rd Ability Light of Sanctity removes all of the above-mentioned buffs from enemies, places a 25% Weaken debuff as well as has a 75% chance to Stun all enemies. This skill is huge as it can guarantee a win by weakening and controlling the enemy team to the point where they won’t be able to attack your damage dealers. Astralon’s 2nd ability Divine Immanence ignores Increase Defense, Ally Protection, and Strengthen buffs.

Astralon Artifact and Stat Recommendations
Astralon is a more PvP oriented champion but can be used in PvE scenarios as well. Hence, we will try to give a good build for both versions.

With that in mind, let’s explore Astralon’s Artifact and Stat preferences:
PvE Artifact Sets Savage Set, Cruel Set, Perception Set, Speed Set, and Accuracy Set.
PvP Artifact Sets: Savage Set, Cruel Set, and Perception Set

Astralon Team Building and Synergies
Astralon synergizes with Countess Lix innately on his Skill 1 by joining him to attack the enemy together and applying an additional 25% Weaken debuff. Hence, the best possible team will need to include Countess Lix for the sole reason that she makes Astralon even more deadly. Astralon’s main ability Light of Sanctity removes all buffs if enemies are under Veil or Perfect Veil. However, this is not a guaranteed removal of buffs as Resistance and Accuracy still play a vital part. Hence, if all goes wrong and enemies don’t get their buffs removed and stunned, they can easily kill your cleave team after Turn 2. Hence, Raglin might be a solid choice to include as she can revive all dead allies to reset the fight back in your favor.
Our recommended team composition for Arena Offense with Astralon is as follows:
- Astralon + Countess Lix + Raglin + Ma’Shalled (Best Possible team)
- Astralon + Countess Lix + Madame Serris + Arbiter(Best possible cleave team)
- Astralon + Arbiter + Tormin + Harvest Jack
- Astralon + Apothecary + Arbiter + High Khatun
- Astralon + Gorgorab + Mountain King + Tormin
- Astralon + Lydia + Gorgorab + Tormin (Debuff Stacking Team)
- Astralon + Arbiter + High Khatun + Warmaiden (F2P Cleave Team)
