Pythion

Legends tell of Duchess Lilitu being the most dominant arena champion for the past few years but in 2023 a new challenger approaches. Pythion joins the Lizardmen as the January 2023 Fragment Fusion Event. It is not an exaggeration to call Pythion the best EVER fusion champion released since fusions started back in 2019. Pythion will be universally useful for any account and is a must pickup.

Protecting and carrying your team is what Pythion is all about. His a3 brings a Full Team revive with 50% HP and Turn Meter when dead allies are revived and a 25% Strengthen buff is placed on all allies. This ability won’t take place until an ally has died making this viable on Arena Defence at even the highest stages of arena. The A2 is a 3 turn, AoE full debuff cleanse followed by a 10% max hp heal which is increased by 5% for each debuff removed. This then places a Block Debuffs buff on all allies for 2 turns. Incredibly powerful to carry your team if you are facing debuffs or to deal with affinity issues in clan boss. The A1 is a double hit which should help you deal with Fire Knight challenges and it also brings a 10% heal to the ally with the lowest HP.

What makes Pythion exceptionally good, is that his passive reduces incoming damage your team takes by 5% for each buff on them which stacks up to 25%. This is effectively the same passive as Duchess (although that is 25% for AoE abilities). This is a significant damage reduction passive that will be incredibly valuable to any team.

Pythion will be essential for all accounts and as a fragment collector should be achievable for most mid game+ accounts.

This guide will be updated following a full playtest.
