Imbued with magical purpose, Helicath claws into Teleria, joining the Demonspawn Faction, as part of the June 2022 Fusion Event.
Helicath will have multiple uses and becomes only the second champion (after Valkyrie) that applies a Shield based on the DEF value of your build. This could potentially creates very significant shields. In addition to his shield, Helicath also brings a Weaken on his A1, a powerful debuff to help increase your damage in Clan Boss or Hydra Clan Boss. His signature ability will be his A3, Devoted Servants, which applies a Block Damage buff to all allies for 2 turns (only Roschard the Tower could apply for 2 turns prior to Helicath’s release). If this Block Damage buff is removed in any manner, the champion instantly is granted an Increase DEF buff for 2 turns. Helicath will increase his own DEF for each Block Damage buff on your team and also counter attack when any champion under block damage buff is attacked.
Helicath is also a fantastic champion for Bommal & Spider!
Helicath offers a number of different options. You could use Helicath as a big shielder in a Killable Clan Boss speed tune (block damage will work until turn 50), or as an Unkillable. You could use Helicath in Arena to force opponents to bring double buff removal or a block buffs (watch out for those sneaky Ramantu’s that can disable his A3 passive) or run him in Protection set to annoy your enemies with his counter attacks. He will also be excellent in any Hydra Team to help reduce the incoming damage your team receives (although watch out for that Mischief head!)
BOOKS! Helicath really needs his A3 booked in full to reach his potential! The ideal scenario is that his A2 is booked but you do not book his Cooldown as it gives you more flexibility with builds and options BUT it is not the end of the world if his A2 is booked in full!
