Bivald of the Thorn Overview
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.
You would not want to get hit by his mace wrapped in Thorns! It’d be like a barbed wire effect to slay his foes!
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. He can be used in Hydra if you’re looking for a CC and Healer!
He is a good all-rounded champion that does well in most areas of the game, he doesn’t excel in one area but performs well in most! He may lean towards Spider as his best dungeon with his AOE Provoke and Leech!
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.
You’d have been sad if you skipped this fusion!
