RAID Shadow Legends – New Doom Tower Bosses, Artifact Sets, and Clan Improvements in Patch 4.10
Plarium released Patch 4.0 for the popular turn-based RPG RAID: Shadow Legends, which included the much-awaited Clan content. Well, players don’t get time to settle down as they have just announced their official Patch 4.10 details on their website.
The essential highlights of this Patch are going to be the 2 new Doom Tower bosses – Grythion the Celestial Griffin and Iragoth the Eternal Dragon. Along with the new bosses come their exclusive Artifacts which can be crafted in the Forge. These 2 sets are called Guardian Set and Bloodthirst Set. Apart from new content and artifact sets, Plarium also talks about the existing Clan improvements and various other optimizations.
Doom Tower Update – 2 New Bosses
The Doom Tower has been one of the most recent and biggest updates in terms of content RAID has seen in a while. However, it’s about to get even more content-rich with the addition of 2 new Doom Tower bosses. The 2 new bosses – Grythion the Celestial Griffin and Iragoth the Eternal Dragon will be seen along with their respective artifact sets in Patch 4.10. They will also be adding new artifact sets called Guardian and Bloodthirst. Crafting materials for these sets can be obtained from the new bosses mentioned above respectively.
These materials can later be used in the forge to craft them. Apart from the new content, existing ones like floor difficulty will be rebalanced, secret room requirements will be changed and some of the existing bosses will make a comeback but with different affinity. Plarium has also mentioned that it will experiment more with different bosses and different rotations for the Doom Tower to keep players engaged and strategize effectively. Let’s take a brief look at the new bosses.
Grythion the Celestial Griffin
Grythion is the new boss monster for Doom Tower in RAID: Shadow Legends. His Affinity is not fixed and is variable depending upon the rotation. His main tactic is that he is an anti-debuff boss. Plarium must have seen that players were easily beating bosses by tackling mechanics with heavy debuff teams. Now, they have released a boss which has the ability (Rock Smash) to transfer all debuffs on the boss to your team and increase the turn meter of Grythion by 5% for each debuff transferred.
Hence, heroes who do not rely on debuffs will be the key to beating Grythion. Apart from debuffing units, buffing units like Drokgul the Gaunt, Skartorsis, Doompriest, and Duchess Lilutu will also become useless as Grythion has the ability (Death Gust) to remove all buffs from enemies and attacks them. This strip of buffs cannot be resisted and ignores Resistance. The damage of this skill increases by 10% for each buff removed. Grythion’s Passive Celestial Bond is also an interesting one as it introduces a new Boss mechanic called “Sky Bond”. Grythion gets 1 Sky Bond at the start of his every turn as well as when the enemy champion’s HP falls below 50%. Each stack of Sky Bond increases Grythion’s stats in the following way:
Critical Rate: 3%
Critical Damage: 5%
Grythion can get a maximum of 20 Sky Bond stacks. At 10 stacks of Sky Bond, Grythion’s attacks will ignore Shield, Block Damage, and Unkillable buffs. These Sky Bonds cannot be blocked or removed from Grythion.
Beating Grythion will let players collect the materials to craft the Guardian Set. These materials are called “Shiny Wings” and can be used in the Forge. The new set will be a 4-piece artifact set. Here is the description:
Wearer absorbs 10% of all damage dealt with ally Champions. Heals by 10% of the wearer’s MAX HP every turn.
Note that Guardian set will not take into account the damage inflicted by Poison or HP Burn debuffs. They will also not take into account the damage inflicted when an ally attacks the wearer.
Iragoth the Eternal Dragon
Iragoth is another new boss monster for Doom Tower in RAID: Shadow Legends. His Affinity is not fixed and is variable depending upon the rotation. Iragoth’s first skill Spike Storm attacks all enemies and places a Block Cooldown Skills debuff for 1 turn. Iragoth is a unique boss and the first of its kind as it places focus on skill cooldown manipulation. Plarium has done some research on these bosses as they both are unique and challenging in their way. Iragoth’s second skill Spirit Rush attacks all enemies and damage is increased for each turn of cooldown remaining on all enemy champion skills. The increased damage multiplier is 20% for each turn of cooldown. Additionally, it also places a Fear debuff on enemies who have no skills on cooldown. Hence, you either take a lot of damage or get a Fear debuff on your team. Iragoth’s 3rd ability Soul Burst attacks all enemies and puts all their skills on cooldown. Additionally, it will also fill Iragoth’s turn meter by 5% per turn remaining on skill cooldown. Iragoth’s passives are interesting.
His first passive Conjure Souls can summon 3 minions at the start of his turn. These minions are 1 Eternal Priest and 2 Eternal Guards. Iragoth can have up to a maximum of 3 minions at a time. Now, we see the introduction of another new mechanic limited to Iragoth called the “Eternal rage”. This buff cannot be blocked or removed. Iragoth places this Eternal rage buff on himself if only 1 Eternal Priest is summoned or nobody is summoned. This buff allows Iragoth to ignore Unkillable, Block Damage, 50% Defense, and Shield buffs while increasing his speed. Iragoth’s other passive Consume Soul sacrifices one Eternal Priest and refreshes his skill cooldowns + another turn. If there are no Eternal priests to sacrifice, Iragoth will sacrifice an Eternal Guard instead and heal 15% of his MAX HP. This passive will be on a 4-Turn cooldown at the start of the battle and will remain on cooldown for additional 5 turns if no Eternal Priest or Eternal Guard is alive. His last passive Otherworldly makes him immune to Stun, Freeze, Sleep, Provoke, Block Cooldown, Fear, True Fear, Decrease Speed, Poison and Heal Reduction debuffs. He is also immune to skills that manipulate turn meter, HP balancing, and HP exchange.
Beating Iragoth will let players collect the materials to craft the Bloodthirst Set. These materials are called “Dragon Bones” and can be used in the Forge. The new set will be a 4-piece artifact set. Here is the description:
Critical rate +12%. Heals by 30% of damage dealt.
Note that Bloodthirst set will not take into account the damage inflicted by Poison or HP Burn debuffs. However, it will stack with other lifesteal sets and skills.
Plarium is going head-on for making Clans a thing to interact with daily and not just do the Clan Boss. With this update, many new QOL changes are coming to Clans!
Here are some of them:
- Filters (language, activity, power, etc.) will be added to the Clan search tab and Clan Rankings. This will make searching for a suitable clan much easier for people who want to join local or powerful clans.
- Clan Leaders will now be able to set a clear requirement for players to be accepted.
- Suggested Clans will now show Clans that are relative to the Players power level and requirement. They will also now show only active Clans whose leaders have been online at least once the past week.
- Players who are not part of any Clan will have the feature of “Quick Join” where they will be immediately made part of a clan from their Suggested List.
- The Members tab will display the last login time of every Clan member.
- Players will be able to send a request to join another Clan even if they are part of an existing Clan already.
- Invitations to Clan will be available in the Global chat.
- Invitations to Clan will be available in the Players info tab.
Other Changes and Fixes
- Doom Tower Rankings and Best team used will now be listed according to the number of turns used to clear the floor instead of the previously used least time taken for the floor.
- The number of turns taken will also be shown alongside the amount of time taken to beat the floors in the Battle result screen.
- MAX Hp of Agreth the Nether Spider (Doom Tower) will be reduced in the Hard Difficulty of the Tower.
