Champion Spotlight: Rotos the Lost Groom

spacer

Yesterday we had a very exciting 10x event on Ancient Shards, followed by 2 more amazing summoning days over the weekend, and picking someone to dive in-to from yesterday’s batch was incredibly hard due to how amazing they all are – so I decided to pick the one I wanted, but didn’t get – just to remind myself exactly what I’m missing out on!

Rotos the Lost Groom, is a Magic affinity legendary from the Undead Hordes faction.

Rotos was introduced as a fusion to Raid: Shadow Legends in February 2020. Rotos became the strongest Arena champion ever to enter the game and when partnered with Siphi the Lost Bride it resulted in him being a one-man killing machine!

In September 2020 he was nerfed and now he sits in the meta as a strong legendary for Arena and Clan Boss and GOD tier for Ice Golem (mainly due to his ability to block revive on an enemy).
In January 2022 he was then buffed to be able to reduce enemy MAX HP to bosses enabling his to be a good option to destroy the Scarab bosses shield and stay alive with his A2 ability!

Rotos could become one of the best tanks to absorb the hex from Koldath in Doom Tower due to his scaling HP pool and passive ability to take 50% damage and then stop further damage.

When building Rotos make sure you have 100% Crit rate, high Crit damage and a strong HP% pool. Rotos has an amazing passive allowing him to take a hit but lose a maximum of 50% of his health. When attacking with his A2 he can also drain HP to build up a very high HP pool. He has one of the most interesting kits of any champion in Raid: Shadow Legends.

    Kind of dissappointing to use an old video that does not show Rotos’s current skills after the buff and also does not include the knowledge you have acquired on Rotos since that video was made.

    It would really be nice to show champ build videos that go a bit more into the detail and the “why” behind how you build them.

    agree with the previous post. in HH’s own words – this is trash.
