Vlad the Nightborn

Last Updated: December 17, 2023

Vlad the Nightborn Overview

Vlad the Nightborn haunts the hallowed grounds of Teleria as the he consumes all life around him. As part of the Halloween 2021 Fusion, Vlad will be summoned from his crypt through the special limited Fragment Collector event. Like all good vampires, Vlad has mastered the ability to Leech life from his foes and will place this debuff on all enemies on his A2. He also has a great ability to consume Turn Meter for his own gains against the Bannerlords, Sacred Order and High Elf faction champions.

Vlad was buffed in February 2023 to make him a real contender as one of the best wave manipulators and set up champions for your damage dealers. His buff saw his A3 become an AOE hit instead of a single target hit making his value surge!

His A3 is an AOE 100% Decrease Defence debuff and 100% Block Active skill ability. This is amazing for Arena and any wave based content such as high level Doom Tower waves or Faction Wars. Vlad has amazing synergy with a high damage dealer Konstantin the Dayborn and when paired together it will enable Vlad to heal fully when he drains his foes completely of life. Konstantin can then lay some impressive nukes with his A2.
