Kellan the Shrike

Legolas look away now because Kellan has arrived to defend the Sylvan Watchers court from the foes determined to destroy the ancient city of Nyresa.

Kellan brings a potent A2 with a potential major damage AoE on the A3 (depending on multipliers). The A2 will have a 100% chance when booked to reduce a target’s Turn Meter by 50%, perfect for Dark Fae, Spider or the Fire-Knight whilst also placing a Decrease Speed debuff. Kellan then places a Perfect Veil buff on them self which is valuable in an Arena setting as this enables all attacks to ignore Shield buffs. The A3 has a damage multiplier that increases by 5% for each debuff on the target. This is not as strong as a Soulless A3 (which is 15%) but likely could yield some large AoE damage numbers. Kellan also brings a Weaken on the A1 although it is only a 50% chance when used with Sniper mastery.

An interesting Kit that has potential if the damage multipliers are set correctly. This guide will be updated following a full playtest.
