Bivald of the Thorn

Like a templar of old, Bivald the Thorn’s Heraldry knows no bounds. He cavaliers into Teleria seeking to control all foes for your team. He joins as part of the May Fragment Fusion Collection event.

Bivald has two decent AOE hits on his A2 and A3 with a kit that also will help you through wave progression content. Bivald is an excellent control champion and a strong healer if build to do some damage. He brings the unique ability to land provokes on weak hits ensuring he always control your enemies. Whether you are progressing through early to mid game or looking for more control in Doom Tower, Bivald will certainly do the job as good as all the over provoke champions.

In Addition, he has a useful passive to reduce incoming damage when champions are provoked, a potentially massive healer with his A3 and also brings Leech and Strengthen.
