Altan – The OG Clan Boss God

Published On: January 22, 2023

Altan is a magic legendary champion in the Barbarians Faction in Raid: Shadow Legends who, back in the day, was the most sought after champion for the Decrease Attack role in Clan Boss. Before there were such things like Block Damage comps, Unkillable comps or Ally Protection comps. There was, as we call them now, Traditional comps and Altan was in everyone’s team! The Decrease Attack Debuff was and is still huge for Traditional comps and having it on the champions A1 ability increases the value of them and Altan was the very best at it and the cherry on the top he also hits hard. But can he be used now and does he have a use anywhere else? In this spotlight, we are going to find out!

Altan’s Skill Set

A1 Searing Blow

Attacks 1 enemy. Has a 60% (Books to 75%) chance of placing a 50% Decrease ATK debuff for 2 turns.

A2 Wall of Flame – 4 Turn Cooldown (Books to a 3-turn cooldown)

Attacks 1 enemy. Places a 60% Increase DEF buff on all allies for 2 turns. Places a Shield buff on all allies for 2 turns equal to 20% of their MAX HP if this attack kills an enemy.

Passive Fiery Rebirth

Revives a random ally with 30% HP every time this champion kills an enemy. Resets the cooldowns on this champion’s Skills if this champion kills an enemy and all allies are alive.


Increases Ally DEF in all battles by 33%

Skill Breakdown

Altan has one of the strongest Decrease Attack abilities on his A1 and it’s a very high chance of landing the debuff. His A2 places increase Defence on all allies for 2 turns and if he kills the enemy places a shield on all allies which is a very possible thing as he hits hard with this skill. His passive is very interesting. If you have an ally down, he will revive them every time he kills someone and there is no cooldown on this. If everyone is alive when he kills an enemy he will reset all his skills cooldown. This is an awesome passive and I could argue that it’s one of the best.

Where to use Altan?

Altan as previously mentioned is a Traditional Clan Boss god with his A1. But his A1 can be used elsewhere, most notably against in the dragon dungeon, His shield and passive can be amazing there too. If one of your team falls over, he can pick them right back up and you can carry on to the dragon. The decrease Attack can also weaken the massive hits the Ice Golem does and the revive mechanic can come in very handy in Faction Wars against those pesky waves we face. Altan desperately needs a buff!


Altan is a solid Legacy Legendary. If you get him early to mid game, he will be, for sure, in all of your teams as your damage reduction champion. But, unfortunately for Altan he has been heavily power crept, as some epics do the same on their A1 but. have more going on in their kit. Should you be disappointed if you get him? That’s a 2 layered answer, yes you should as he is not the best legendary in the game. But also no, He is a legendary in his own right and is due a buff soon and when he gets that all important buff you will be thrilled you have him..

Do you use Altan? Do you think he needs a buff to put him in his rightful place as a great Legendary again? Leave a comment down below, we love hearing from you!
