Raid: Shadow Legends Battle Guide
⇒The turn-based battle mechanics featured in the Raid: Shadow Legends game is pretty easy to understand. The player creates a party of four champions who fight against the opposing team or monsters. If you are playing the campaign mode, then to get 3* in the battle, you will have to strike down the enemy team with 2 or fewer champions + there should not be any loss. If you are playing other modes such as dungeon, arena, it does not matter. You can go with the four champions. If you are not getting 3* with 2 characters, then go with the full team and progress further. You can always play the old stages anytime. So once your top two best characters have massive power, play the stages where you didn’t get the 3-stars.
⇒When selecting the champions for the battle, you should pay attention to the elemental relationship. At the bottom-left corner of a monster or character, you can check its element. All these creatures belong to one of the five elements; red, green, blue, and purple. Red beats blue, blue beats green, and green beats red. If you select the strong element character, you will get an advantage(increase in damage, reduction in receiving damage(enemy attacks).
⇒In the battle, you use the champions’ skills to deal damage, apply buffs, debuffs, and give support. Just above the character’s head, the green bar displays the health of an ally or monster. The yellow bar above the character’s head displays the turn-meter. If it’s full, then your character will get the turn. It fills gradually as you progress in the battle. All the champions in Raid: Shadow Legends have unique skills, role, and stats. So you must read their skill details, role details in the champions menu before you proceed further into the battles. This helps you to use the champions’ skills at the right time and on the right target.
⇒Just above the enemy’s head, the color of the arrow displays the attack effect. The green arrow means the enemy is weak against the champion who is on the turn, the yellow arrow means there is no extra bonus over that enemy. The red arrow indicates the enemy is stronger than your champion in affinity. We have already discussed the affinity mechanics in point number 2(above). If the enemy is weak in affinity, your champion will deal more damage. If it’s the same(yellow arrow), there would not be any bonus. And, if it’s strong(red arrow), your champion will deal less damage. That’s why you should select the champions wisely.
⇒Battle Rewards -> On the stage selection screen, on the left side, you can check the reward that you may get on the victory. It could be a champion, shard, a potion, scroll, artifacts, accessory and more.
So this is the Raid: Shadow Legends Guide to battles. Let’s have a look at Raid: Shadow Legends guide to champions.

Go to the champions menu -> select a champion -> at the top-right corner, you can check its role.
What Is Aura Skill?
Some champions have a unique aura skill that impacts all the team members. There would be a special aura skill icon at the top-right of champion’s portrait. For example; Galek has an aura skill, which increases ally HP in all battles by 15%. You can check the champion’s aura skill in the skill tab of the champion menu.
Raid: Shadow Legends Artifacts Guide
There are five types of artifacts; life, offense, defense, critical rate, and lifesteal. You get these artifcats from the campaign battles and dungeon modes or from the shop or as a login reward. Artifacts or Equipment(weapon, helmet, armor, boots, hand, shield) increases the stats of a champion. If you equip the 2/4 artifacts of the same type, a set effect will get activated. For example; Life type artifact increases HP, offense type artifact increases attack, defense type artifacts increase defense, lifesteal artifact increases healing stats. (BY 15%).
Go to the champion menu -> select a champion -> in the artifacts tab, you can equip these artifacts. Tap a slot -> then select an artifact -> you get three options; sell, equip, upgrade. Sell the artifacts for silver. Equip the artifact to increase stats. Upgrade the artifact to increase stats further.
In the stats table, you can check the changes in the champion’s stats.
Raid: Shadow Legends Champions Skills
Go to the champion menu -> select the champion -> go to the skills tab -> tap the skill to get details. To upgrade these skills, you need tomes or duplicate champions. You can get tomes through progression reward, login reward or from the shop/packs.
You can raise the champion’s stats(attack, defense, support) by activating mastery skills. All you need to do is earn scrolls from the dungeon mode -> then use these scrolls to unlock masteries. (champions -> masteries -> tap the + button). For the scrolls, raid the enemies in Minotaur’s Labyrinth dungeon mode.
How To Level Up Champions
There are two ways to raise the level of a champion in Raid: Shadow Legends game; use them in the battles or sacrifice low-grade champions. Tap the tavern option on the main screen. After that, select the champion that you want to level up. After that, select the champions to use as a sacrificial material.
Or add the champions in the team for the battle. They will earn experience upon the victory.
How To Upgrade Champion’s Rank
Once a champion reaches the maximum level, he/she will not gain any experience. To increase the level cap of a champion, the player needs to upgrade rank. Tap tavern option -> upgrade rank -> select the champion(to rank up). After that, select the champions of the same rank. The number of champions required to rank-up a champion depends on the star level.
The player can further improve the champion’s stats through ascending. In this process, you need ascend potions, which can be obtained from the dungeon mode.
So this is the Raid: Shadow Legends guide for the beginners. Let’s have a look at our top Raid: Shadow Legends tips & tricks.
Raid: Shadow Legends Tips & Tricks: –
1.) Build Champions Wisely
As mentioned in the above guide, champions are of four types; attackers, defenders, HP, support. And, if you equip the 2/4 artifacts of the same type, a set effect will get activated. You should do this in the right way. For example; to boost the attackers, you should equip(set-effect) offense type/crit-type artifacts. For defenders, defense artifacts. For HP, life artifacts. Activate the set effect by equipping two or four artifacts of the same type. Lifesteal set is good for all.
Go to the champion menu -> tap the champion -> tap the review button above the level bar -> go to recommended artifacts tab -> here you can check the recommended artifact set for the champion.

In your team, must add a defender(defenders have skills, which protect allies), healers(to heal allies), attackers, and buffers/debuffers.
