    Man, this kit is not great. Early game the aoe decrease attack is very decent, but it falls off incredibly quickly. The shield could be decent (writing this not knowing multipliers) for CB and progression, but to me this champion SOMEHOW managed to be worse than Deliana. #justicefordeathknight

    He’s no Aleksandr, let alone a Ninja…

    Can’t see him on my short list to 6*.

    He’s an adorable meme-Legendary, who is a Godsend for brand-new players, as Deliana was. Also, Plarium spared you the cost in energy and pots to actually ascend him if you use the promo code DKRISES. So he’s pretty much as free as it gets to max a Level-50 Lego. Whether he deserves a 60 is highly debatable, maybe as practice on how to optimize that ranking process.

    His shielding is comparatively poor to other similar shield skills, but as a 130-days-in player, I personally only have Draconis and Lonatharil in the comparison spreadsheet that Saph was using, so newbies like me won’t really have that many options, and UDK could be the only option for even newer accounts.

    To avoid adding to power-creep, he HAD to be “worse” than the median power bar for Legos. He’s here for giggles, not to push the power curve. UDK makes an appropriate solo-arena-defense champ, relieving all your “real” arena champs that drudgery. :)

      I believe he at least should has been Aleks good, Deliana was underwhelming to me, but I kind of get what Plarium was going for. This champion is herendous. He can keep dec atk on the cb IF you book him, and he can slightly help with his shield. I believe all legendaries should be great for one area. This guy is decent in cb. And if I see ANY of this champion in current meta gold V, then I don’t know why he’s in the team. He is decent IF you invest 10 books. There are so few ways to get books, and this is basically using them on someone who will immediatly get replaced. He could possibly counter Rotos, and thats IT.

        Deliana often leads my Lego Arena Team (Bivald, Helicath, Deliana, Dreng) in damage. I only take her out if I’m facing mostly Spirit champs. She’s only half-booked and has minimal masteries. Her high damage in Arena is 743k. No complaints here whatsoever.

        • SS2020user August 27, 2022 at 8:05 pm

          Is the big deal with Deliana that she has an AoE A1? I don’t understand why everyone loves her.

          • LordBanshee August 29, 2022 at 5:44 pm

            The big deal with Deliana is:
            1) Free, no shards necessary
            2) Force and HP-based, gives early accounts a healthy counter to all the Kaels they see in Arena. 75% of the time, Deliana is last-elf-standing on an enemy Arena team that has her.
            3) Swiss-army-knife. Need a targeted nuke? That’s her A2, and it shaves off the target’s Resistance if Deli doesn’t finish the job. Make Deli fast enough and she stops foe-buff mushrooming cold with her A3. When that goes off team-wide, I think, “OK, you all are effed now”. And it hits hard like Kael’s A2 to boot.
            4) Oh yeah, she hits everyone hard with her A1, and she’ll either stun/poison some peops or also do it on half the hits she takes, depending on armor sets.
            Btw, the 743k score she had was while she’s in her current Bolster set. :) (We faced Altan, Deliana, Sethalia, Scyl, and Scyl healed for 800k and Sethalia healed for 1.1M… it took a lonnnnng time…)

      There are lots of shield champs.

      • LordBanshee August 26, 2022 at 4:58 pm

        Yeah, there are a bunch of shield champs. I think Saph forgot about Bivald, who functions as my first real tank and Lego-fusion on my account. Looks like UDK’s shield will be close to Bivald’s and I can tell you that they will be useful and a new account will be glad to have them. Btw: I had enough books to fully book Bivald and did so (and haven’t regretted it).

        I actually think he will be usable in Spider, as by blocking spiderling hits completely (but not the poison applications, I believe) and applying his shield’n’heal skill and Attack-Down skill, he could help out a ton. There are only 6 Legos in the game with a better defense aura, and depending on how the Passive is coded, he might gain an extra 30% DEF on top of that if he solos or become last-corpse-standing. He won’t keep Mama Spider from healing, but helps out nicely otherwise.

        Totally get that everyone wants their new acquisition to excel, but we both know that’s not UDK’s reason for existing. He’s a PR-campaign / meme Lego, and I gleefully embrace that. For me, he sorts my Arena Defense until my teams actually resemble something fierce. I see zero reason to try for Defense wins at Gold-II, so let everyone have a good time bashing on old UDK.

        • SS2020user August 27, 2022 at 8:07 pm

          Can everyone just agree that Bivald is amazing? He is probably my favorite cahmpion on my account. He forms the core of many of my team, basically soloed FW 21, destroyes FK 20 waves, demolishes DT waves and is useful in arena as control + damage.

          • LordBanshee August 29, 2022 at 5:32 pm

            Bivald is the prototype D&D Fighter/Cleric/Mage. Hits hard, team-heals reasonably well, magic-shields the party, all the while health-tanking it up. I need a good reason to toss him out of any team’s leader spot.

        • LordBanshee September 1, 2022 at 5:13 am

          I was right! In a HellHades Spider-25 run with 4 friendly spirit champs, force-affinity UDK took on the Magic-affinity Spider and not only were the damage of the spiderlings cancel’ed, UDK took on the poisons as well, as weak hits! If you build him high-Def (should do this anyways) + high Res, he could take minimal spiderling damage WHOEVER is targeted, and massage it away with his heals, removing the need of a debuff-wiper. His Attack-down is huge as well. Pair him with a free Drexthar (which I will receive in a week), and Spider-silver becomes a reality for me. Huge for my account.

          • SS2020user September 5, 2022 at 6:14 am

            Drex can’t burn unless he is beeing hit. So he is useless with UDK.
