In this article, we are looking at a huge part of the game which could make or break your account in Raid: Shadow Legends! We are looking at building your speed boost/lead effectively so we can beat the opposing arena speed lead.
This guide is for everyone that plays Raid: Shadow Legends at any stage of the game. Whether you are fighting the normal campaign or finishing the nightmare campaign or pushing the later stages of Doom Tower this guide will impact you greatly!
What is a Speed Booster?
The idea of a speed booster is to boost your team’s speed and increase turn meter so you can use your abilities first and put your team on the front foot and could potentiality kill the enemy threat winning you the arena battle.
As an example for this guide, we will go over how HellHades built his High Khatun (a free to play champion that is accessed through daily login) so that you guys can take this concept and build it on your own speed boost and speed leads.
When building your speed boost we need to check to see if there are any skills which we need to land. If the champion has other debuffs then we need to include accuracy in our build but make sure it doesn’t sacrifice your speed.
We want to build all our artifacts in the speed set or divine speed set as long as you complete the set to gain the extra speed set bonuses.
This is vital and will make your speed lead from average to god tier. The importance of this is so we get more speed and allows us to outspeed the opponents and win the fight.
Let’s look at High Khatun. She is a free champion that everyone has access to from daily login rewards and will fill the role of a speed booster perfectly.
First we are going to start with the top 3 artifacts
With the top 3 you want to build as much speed as possible so we are going to use the in game tool to filter speed in sub stats and get as much as possible. Look out for the highest speed stat you have.
Do this for all 3, it doesn’t matter if the other sub stats are trash as we are looking for speed to be able to go first in the arena.
If you can find some accuracy it wouldn’t hurt but don’t sacrifice speed.
Next, we are going to complete the bottom set of artifacts
⦁ Gloves – If your speed booster is only for the arena then don’t focus on primary stat just get as much speed as possible in the sub stats. If this champion is going to be used in other parts of the game then get some hp% gloves so the champion isn’t targeted by mobs.
⦁ Chest – If this champion is going to be used primarily in the arena then get as much speed as you can from the sub stats. If you can build accuracy from the primary, and the sub stats has good speed rolls then use that as it will help hit your debuffs on the enemies.
⦁ Boots – Primary stat is speed and you want to roll this to get maximum speed out of the boots because it will be a big chunk of speed added to your stats.
Finally, we are going to have a look at the jewellery
⦁ Banner – here is a good time to add accuracy to your build so find an accuracy banner.
⦁ Amulet and ring – these 2 aren’t essential but try to find an accuracy sub stat as it will massively help with the debuffs on the opposing arena team.
With the masteries we are trying to maximize the speed we can achieve and the added stats will aid us in the arena and if we are using the speed boost in other areas of the game.
⦁ Pinpoint accuracy
⦁ Swarm smiter
⦁ Lore of steel
⦁ Evil eye
⦁ Rapid response
⦁ Improved parry
⦁ Wisdom of battle
⦁ Cycle of revenge
There are other masteries you could use if you are using the champ in different areas of the game but more of that another time. Use the above masteries to get the maximum out of your speed lead.
If you follow this speed lead guide then you will be gaining trophies in the arena in no time!
Remember to put all your trophies into your great hall!
