Garnet – New Dark Elemental Unit
Garnet is a Legendary rarity Dark elemental unit from the Holy Light Faction. Garnet is going to be specifically targeted towards PvP content as her passive ascension lets her self-revive upon death. She also demands to be built with lots of speed as she needs to take the first turn to use her AOE Sleep and No Positive Effect debuffs. Her damage also scales according to her Speed which is an added incentive to build her with more Speed. Her Trait Stardust states that Garnet gets 1 rage whenever any ally uses their ultimate ability or special ability after she dies on the battlefield. Garnet will instantly self-revive with 50% MAX HP and reduced ability cooldowns when she gets 3 stacks of rage.

Garnet’s ultimate ability Astra Doomsday is an AOE targeted damaging skill that deals damage to all enemies and has a 100% chance of inflicting No Positive Effects for 2 turns plus a 50% chance of inflicting Sleep debuff for 1 turn. The damage dealt by this skill depends on the difference between the Speed of the caster and the target. We recommend building Garnet on Raider and Rebel Set with a focus on Speed, Attack%, Critical Hit Rate%, and Critical Hit Damage% as stats.
