You won’t hatch any plans to steal the Broodlord’s eggs on his watch! He joins the lizardmen as part of the 2021 Christmas Fusion Event.
He has been designed as a reactionary defender, focussed on protecting 1 ally and slowing enemies when they attack him or his ally. He has the possibility of placing a Provoke on an A1 and on each hit giving you 50% chance per hit when booked. It does however require a Decrease Speed debuff to be on the enemy. In Addition, he brings an 85% chance to place a Stun debuff on enemies as an AoE if they are under Decrease Speed.
You’re noticing the trend here – luckily Broodlord does have an ability to place the Decrease Speed passively when he or his protected Ally is attacked. It is however quite unreliable so to get the best out of Broodlord, I suggest you bring another decrease speed champion such as Psylar or Mother Cybele to activate his kit.
His single target Ally Protect may seem useless however you might find some use by having a High Resistance target against the Head of Mischief in the Hydra Clan Boss where the target with most buffs is attacked.
