Sylvan Watchers Faction Wars

Sylvan Watchers Faction Wars is well under way and here are some of the best epics for you to add to your roster to get the job done! The Faction Wars series by the Deadwood Jedi is Back, providing players with invaluable insights on conquering each faction in Raid Shadow Legends. This time round we have the Sylvan Watchers faction, as it’s one of the newer factions, a lot of players will lack the required champions to complete the faction, so in this guide we are going to break it all down and give you some tips and showcase some of the lesser known champions in the Sylvan Watchers faction to help you along with your journey to those all-important 3 stars because at the end of the day we all want Lydia in our accounts!

Gearing your Champions

You watch all the videos on Faction Wars and you are thinking you will not get to all these stats, just remember, if you’re at the end stages of finishing Faction Wars it is worth it to actually take your best gear off your main Champions and put them on these Champions just to clear the stage at least for the first time through. Get those 3 stars, put the gear back on your main champions and walk away time you will eventually get the gear to have a consistent farm on 21. But the goal is to get 3 stars. This is the best way to do it if your gear is limited.

Sylvan Watcher Bosses:

Stage 7 features the Incinerator boss, which can be relatively manageable if you possess level 60 or even level 50 Champions. While it’s not an exceptionally challenging encounter, The Incinerator inflicts poison, reduces turn meter, and employs an AOE true fear. The boss applies HP burn whenever it is attacked, which can be annoying. Cleansing and blocking debuffs champions are a must, as is often the case with similar boss encounters. However, in this faction, such options are limited, making the challenge slightly more demanding. But with this being Stage 7 you should be about to just smack it down with well-built champions.

Stage 14 introduces the Protector boss, who can be quite annoying. The boss possesses an AOE attack as its primary ability, with a decent chance of inflicting fear on your champions. Fortunately, it is not true fear and only lasts for one turn. While blocking debuffs and cleansing are valuable strategies, you can mostly overlook them in this encounter. Instead, focusing on crowd control (CC) becomes essential. Freezing abilities can prove highly effective, and stuns are also helpful, having a champion in Stun Set is a bench marker for any Faction Wars team.. By immobilising or incapacitating the boss’s minions, you can render them harmless while concentrating your efforts on the boss itself. The boss’s second ability revives its minions to full health and places a sleep debuff on itself. Hence, it is crucial not to kill the minions, as they will be promptly resurrected. The recommended approach is employing high damage output and targeted attacks against the boss. Decreasing the boss’s defence is also beneficial, and the Sylvan Watchers faction provides champions capable of performing this role.

Stage 21 features the Dueler, one of the game’s most challenging bosses. Overcoming this boss requires cleanse, block debuff champions, and revivers. Achieving a three-star victory here may require manual intervention even for the teams with the best champions. The Dueler’s primary ability ignores defence and inflicts damage based on maximum HP, making it challenging to mitigate. Strength and buffs, as well as ally protection, offer potential avenues for success. Equipping Guardian sets can help reduce damage. Revivers and shields are highly recommended. The Dueler’s second ability removes all debuffs from the champion, places a true fear debuff on a random enemy, and stuns all enemies except that enemy. These debuffs cannot be resisted, emphasising the importance of ally protection and block debuffs. The boss’s passive ability grants a turn meter boost based on the percentage of HP lost when attacked, making timing crucial.

Champions to use:

So as with any faction, we are going to skip Legendary champions because they all have their uses and will all be good for Faction Wars in some way. If you have Legendaries then you should be using them just make sure you have some of everything in your team comps not just all one type, for example don’t bring a team of all Nukers to the stage 21 as you’ll be taken down because the boss is hard! We have had 2 fusion champions one being Oella and another being Emic. Both are amazing champions to support your teams.

Generally, for Faction wars we need Crowd Control, Damage and Sustain so let’s have a look at the champions that can bring this us.

Criodan The Blue is a great champion for faction Wars because he brings a single target chance to freeze on his a1, an AOE chance to freeze on his a2. An Increase SPD buff on your whole team plus TM fill on his a3 and he has self TM fill for every Freeze debuff he places. If this doesn’t ring Faction Wars then what does? looking at the 3 factors we need to bring he has Crowd Control with his Freezes and he has added extras which are amazing for Faction Wars with team Speed and TM fills. Great Champion!

Duedan the Runic is a beast of a champion and really helps Faction Wars teams because his a2 is a big AOE ability Plus he shields the whole team and increases the duration of all allies buffs for a turn. This skill alone is amazing but he has good CC ability in his a3 because he has a Taunt, Counterattack and Strengthen all-in-one ability. And to add the cherry to the top he increases Ally DEF in all battles as his aura so if you’re lacking in this area he comes and helps boost the tankiness of your team!

Mistrider Daithi is a great champion because he brings an AOE Decrease DEF on his a2 and he self-buffs with Increase ATK and ACC. He is great if you need to lower the defences to allow your team to do more damage and knock down the waves quicker!

Myciliac Priest Orn is an amazing champion maybe one of the best Epics in the game but definitely a top contender and here he is ready for the Faction Wars! He is so good at clearing waves so if you have him in your roster get him to the front of any team but especially in Faction Wars he should be one of the first in the team. He uses Poison to do damage and he has a ton of them for all enemies with his AOE a3.

Ruella needs to be called out because she has good TM fill and C. Rate Buff for all allies so she is good to support to get your team turns in much quicker.

White Dryad Nia is another support champ that comes in clutch for sustainability for Faction Wars. This is because she cleanses an ally and heals them and decreases their cooldown by 2! Mental if you can get the champion’s skills back around on rotation quicker. Then she places an ally Protect on the team and a Strengthen Buff, all great buffs to have to survive longer!

Wyrennon the Silken is one of the only epics with a revive in her kit so you should make sure to add her to your teams because that revive will come in clutch!
