Ninja Review

Ninja is a Legendary Attack Magic champion from the Shadowkin faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Ninja was introduced in Patch 4.40 on July 1st, 2021 as a special collaboration with Richard Belvins aka Ninja who is a well-known Twitch Streamer, Youtuber and professional gamer. Ninja can only be obtained for a limited time to all players for free by logging into the game for 7 days between July 16th 2021 and October 15th 2021 to acquire him! He will not be available to be summoned from Ancient Shards and Sacred Shards. Previously, Plarium released a champion based on a popular streamer who is known as Saito with Shadowkin theme but was placed into Undead Hordes faction.

Ninja’s Shatterbolt (A1 Skill) allows you to place Decrease Defense debuff on an enemy, so your champions can deal much more damage to the target. This is great for boss raiding, especially since there aren’t any minions (sidekicks) such as Clan Boss. In addition, Ninja has an amazing crowd control skill that freezes all enemies in battle with his Cyan Slash (A3 Skill), which makes him a great candidate to stall enemies while your team takes some breathing room to recuperate. Ninja’s AoE Freeze is particularly useful for freezing the Dreadbombs in Bommal the Dreadhorn floors to reduce the damage done by the minion’s suicidal attacks by half! Apart from that, Ninja’s Hailburn (A2 Skill) is his signature move and he is the very first champion who has the HP Burn activation skill! Hailburn applies HP Burn debuff and activates them, it instantly deals damage based on Enemy MAX HP and Ignores 100% Defense, it can easily wipe out a single-target in a blink of an eye regardless how tanky they are!

Ninja also has a unique passive skill Escalation that boosts his stats whenever he combo his skills (A1, A2, and A3) on a single-target enemy. His Attack, Critical Rate, and Critical Damage stats skyrocket when he completes all 3 skill attacks individually on the same enemy, which makes him one of the best champions for boss raiding. Ninja is a solid investment as a free champion if you could obtain him before the Time-Limited event ends!

Ninja All-Rounder Build

Here is Ninja’s artifacts and masteries by Ayumilove optimized for all content in the game as an all-rounder build! Ninja is equipped in Lifesteal Set and Accuracy Set to enable him to replenish his Health quickly whenever he attacks his enemies and provides him additional Accuracy stats to inflict his HP Burn debuff! The stats to prioritized on Ninja are Health, Speed, Accuracy, Critical Rate and Defense. Accuracy is a must for Ninja as his bulk of damage comes from his activation of HP Burn debuff. In addition, Ninja is pretty squishy, so having sufficient Health and Defense allows him to survive longer in battle. If you are building him for end game content such as Doom Tower Hard, you will need at least 350 Accuracy, 200+ Speed, 50~60K HP, 2~3K Defense to make him sufficiently beefy. Once you achieve these stats, then you can focus on other stats such as Attack, Critical Rate and Critical Damage to boost his base damage up.

Ninja Arena Nuker Build

Here is Ninja’s artifacts and masteries by YST optimized for Arena as an Arena Nuker! Ninja is equipped in Savage Set to enable him to ignore a portion of enemy defenses to deal maximum amount of damage to his opponent. The stats to prioritized on Ninja are Attack, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, Speed and Accuracy. You will only need 250 Accuracy for Dungeon, Doom Tower Normal and Faction Wars content for Ninja to land his HP Burn debuff. For Arena, Ninja needs to have at least 3K Attack, 100% Critical Rate, 200~300% Critical Damage to deal high amount of damage to his enemies. Speed is crucial too to allow him to take his turn first to use his AoE Freeze to crowd control them before his enemies begin their turn.

Ninja Champion Lore

Most of those who live beyond the borders of Yakai consider the Ninja a mere confabulation, a propaganda piece designed to aggrandize the superhuman capabilities of some Shadowkin. Some say they have witnessed the brilliant azure glow of the Ninja, but never seen his face, so quick and nimble were his movements. The few scattered reports have been dismissed as unreliable. The rest of Teleria sleeps all the more soundly at night believing the Ninja to be a series of coincidences and exaggerations.

But for the Shadowkin, there is no uncertainty as to the Ninja and his greatness. He is the hero of countless poems and songs. Depictions of his adventures adorn the walls of palaces and taverns alike, and news of his latest exploits are eagerly awaited in hamlets, towns, and the very corridors of power. So elaborate and spectacular are his alleged triumphs that even his greatest fanatics find their credulity sometimes strained. But such is the nature of the folk hero. Critics dismiss everything wholesale, but believers are convinced there is more truth than lies to the heroic sagas.

Most likely, the Ninja is a highly atypical example of the Mikage Demonspawn, based on the single wing that grows from his shoulder, but that is simply the least-outlandish of the theories. His tale begins as a foundling infant who appeared before the acolytes of the Charn-Yo Proving Ground, one of the most prestigious centers of martial arts in Yakai and indeed all the world. Charn-Yo warriors are taught to blend spirit and muscle in pursuit of an ultimate fighting technique theorized by the grandmasters but never truly achieved. The strange babe appeared in a flash, his looks a brilliant blue hue unlike any had ever seen, with such an otherworldly aspect to him that the students were awed by it and even the elders were intrigued.

He was raised by the disciples of Charn-Yo, and grew to consider the whole school his family. He picked up new techniques quickly, his appetite for new skills and knowledge endless. In the sparring ring he insisted on full-contact practice against opponents far superior to him, enduring blow after blow to toughen his body and his will, refusing to give up or to allow his mentors to go easy on him. When he was too bruised and battered to continue to practice the sword, he rose and proceeded to the target range, where he would take up a bow and a satchel of throwing knives and work on his aim. He was not a perfect pupil, for at times he was wilful and petulant as all young men sometimes are. His occasional pranks were legendary themselves. But no one could deny his skill and fitness, and soon his masters knew that he was their best chance yet to realize the true potential of the Charn-Yo arts.

Ninja was taught to tap into his own life-force, his fighting spirit, his ego, his charisma, all the things that fueled him with a will to greatness. To turn excitement and eagerness into raw energy, to give fiery life to that potential energy within — this was the ultimate fighting art that Ninja’s mentors had theorized about long before. They had searched for ages for a pupil with the potential to finally bring the art to full fruition, and they saw Ninja as their best opportunity yet. The road was long and hard. He struggled, but built his confidence, and when he first was able to wreath his sword in his own brilliant blue spirit-energy, he erupted with joy. With his mastery of blade and bow, he created his own fighting style, manifesting the flaming soul of the weapons themselves and enhancing each slash and shot with his own inimitable power.

His former mentors and all the pupils of Charn-Yo bade Ninja a fond farewell, for there was nothing left to teach him, only his example for them to follow. As to what he did next, one need only ask around at any teahouse or farmstead in Yakai to hear a dozen tales of the Ninja. He annihilated the entire Mountain Stream Viper Gang in a single night, shot the Winged Horror of Dilwan from the sky, and rescued trapped survivors of the Flooding of the Jonban with his great strength and agility. He seems to prioritize spectacle, challenge, and personal satisfaction when deciding on what deed of heroism to perform next. They say he is making history even now, and every rumormonger in the land has their eyes and ears tuned to find new traces of his famed feats of martial prowess.
