    Akemtum

    What do you get when you combine Brakus the Shifter with dangerous toxins – the answer Akemtum who joins the Skinwalkers as part of patch 6.40.

    Poisons are the name of the game with Akemtum who attacks 3 times on the A1 with a 50% chance of placing a Poison debuff. What makes Akemtum unique is his ability to place and interact with Hex debuff. His A2 attacks all enemies 3 times (double triple hit making Giant Slayer a great mastery choice), with each hit having a chance to either increase the duration of Hex or instead place it for 2 turns. When Akemtum then attacks a Hex target with his A1, each hit will have a hance to spread 1 random debuff to all enemies. This combination makes him a powerful debuffer and one of the few viable debuff spread options. It doesn’t end there with Akemtum, who brings a unique passive that causes a poison debuff to also damage any enemy under a Hex debuff. The passive could potentially be meta defining in some dungeon teams.

    We’ll have to see how his passive interacts with AoE poison activators such as Teodor but Akemtum looks a powerful poisoner for any team that requires.

    This guide will be updated following a full playtest.
