Raid Shadow Legends: Achak the Wendarin Champion Guide

Achak the Wendarin is an epic force affinity champion from the demonspawn faction in Raid Shadow Legends. He is a great champion all round with an impressive A3. The A3 will place a freeze debuff on an enemy if it has a higher attack than defence or a HP burn is placed if they have a higher defence than attack. Players are able to manipulate the type of buff that is applied if they cast decrease defence or decrease attack debuffs on the target prior to firing the A3 ability.

Furthermore Achak also has a strong A2 ability which places strengthen and block debuffs on all team mates. He is great in a number of different content areas, including faction wars, late game dungeon raids and Sorath in the Doom Tower.

Achak End Game Guide

Achak the Wendarin is a Force Epic from the Demonspawn faction with a strong support focused kit and has excellent Crowd Control capabilities. This guide will focus on Achak’s role in dungeon stages 20 and 25.


When booking, you should try to book the A3 fully as it offers either a Freeze debuff or a HP Burn debuff on all enemies on a 3-turn cooldown. For higher stages of dungeon (16+) you will mostly proc Freeze so Achak can be your dedicated Crowd Control there. Note that the skill is only booked to 90% so the masteries choices allows us to maximise it with Fearsome Presence. The passive is what makes this champion so unique. When enemies are under HP Burn your champions get healed and a TM boost when enemies are frozen.

A2 provides a Block Debuffs and Strengthen buff. They are both useful but the 4-turn cooldown does not allow you to keep them up permanently easily.


In terms of masteries Defense and Support tree for Achak have been selected in this build. In the Defense tree, you want to pick damage mitigation and most importantly Fearsome Presence for T6 for the extra chance to freeze. In the Support tree Accuracy masteries and Lasting Gifts to get a chance to extend those buffs are useful along with Arcane Celerity.

However, if you cannot get high enough Accuracy, Eagle Eye is also a viable alternative option for T6.

Gear & Stats Build

The build showcased here allows Achak to duo the Spider’s den stages 24 and 25 with Tyrant Ixlimor: Achak is using a Relentless set. If your Relentless set is not good enough, you should use Speed or Perception as hitting decent stats are more important than the set bonus from Relentless to give you more chances to cast A3.

As a support, you want to prioritize Speed, Accuracy and Def/HP. You should aim for 220+ Speed and 220+ Accuracy for general PvE use outside of the Doom Tower. For Hard Doom Tower, you would want to get 350+ Accuracy.

Main Stat Recommendations

  • Glove: HP%/Def%
  • Chest: Accuracy/HP%/Def %
  • Boots: Speed
  • Ring: Defense/HP
  • Amulet: Defense/HP
  • Banner: Accuracy

As for the accessories, Refresh would be the most interesting for Achak as you want to keep the enemies frozen as often as possible.

Dungeon Runs

Dragon 20

For Dragon 20, Achak also provides Crowd Control to keep your more fragile champions such as your wave nuker or poisoner alive, or at least, to allow your healer to get have more time if the healing ability is on cooldown. She works here with Dhukk the Pierced to keep the waves under control.

Team Build

  1. Achak: Defense aura, Freeze, Strengthen, TM boost.
  2. Dhukk: Defense down, Attack down, Provoke.
  3. Apothecary: TM boost, Speed up, Healing.
  4. Kael: Damage and Poison.
  5. Frozen Banshee: Poison

Achak’s aura also helps Dhukk do more damage as she is a Defense based champion.

Dragon 25

Dungeons 25 require more Crowd Control than their level 20 counterparts if you don’t have enough damage to kill the waves fast. Achak can work perfectly fine in Dragon dungeons as a Crowd Control and a TM booster with that passive. The largest downside to Achak in dungeons 25 is that Freeze reduces the damage taken by the enemies, and with their high HP and Def stats the fight can take longer.

Team Build

The team showcased here allows you to keep Occult Brawler alive so he can kill the Dragon with his poisons.

  1. Achak: Defense aura, Freeze, TM boost, Strengthen and Block Debuffs.
  2. Dhukk: Defense down, Attack down, Provoke.
  3. Fenax: Damage.
  4. Occult Brawler: Poison.
  5. Ursala: Defense up, Strengthen, Attack up, Attack down, Revive.

Ice Golem 20

Despite being weak affinity, Achak stays relevant against the Ice Golem and can help you take on Stage 20. AoE Freeze provides a strong Crowd Control and Block Debuffs, although not always up, can help you block some of the dangerous debuffs thrown your way such as Decrease Defense, Heal Reduction or Freeze. That allows your cleanser to get their ability off cooldown in the mean time.

Team Build

The budget team showcased here relies on Reliquary Tender as the only cleanser and reviver of the team with Apothecary helping her keep the team healthy.

  1. Achak: Defense aura, Freeze, Strengthen, Block Debuffs.
  2. Apothecary: Increase Speed, Increase TM, Heal.
  3. Kael: Damage, Poison.
  4. Reliquary Tender: Heal, Cleanse and Revive.
  5. Dhukk: Decrease Defense, Decrease Attack, Provoke.

Ice Golem 25

HP Burn and Poisons are very effective against the Ice Golem 25 as it does not trigger his Frigid Vengeance. Moreover, with Achak having very good synergy with Freeze and HP Burn, the team showcased brings out her full support capabilities as a TM booster and a healer on top of all the Crowd Control provided.

Team Build

  1. Achak: Defense aura, Freeze, TM boost, Healing.
  2. Dhukk: Defense down, Attack down, Provoke.
  3. Ursala: Defense up, Strengthen, Revive, Attack down, Attack up.
  4. Tyrant: Ally Protection, Defense up, HP Burn.
  5. Sicia: Weaken, HP Burn, Damage.

Sicia and Tyrant here provide the HP Burn needed to activate the other half of Achak’s passive, turning her into a complete support with Crowd Control, TM boost and Healing to help sustaining the team on top of all the damage mitigation provided by other champions. This makes this team very safe.

Spider 20

Stage 20 of the Spider’s Den is another instance where Achak is weak affinity and this can be useful.

She serves as a Spider tank here and helps with the TM boost to keep the team going fast, cycling through their abilities. Taking all the damage from the spiderlings, your more fragile champions such as Coldheart can safely cycle through their skills to use Heartseeker again, allowing you to take down the boss safely.

Team Build

  1. Deacon: Speed aura, TM control and Decrease Defense.
  2. Achak: Freeze, Strengthen, Block Debuffs, TM boost.
  3. Scyl: Stun, Heal, Revive.
  4. Coldheart: Enemy MAX HP nuke and TM control.

Faction Wars Guide

Demonspawns stage 21 of the Faction Wars is quite difficult as its second wave is the infamous Valkyries wave. If you do not have the burst power to nuke through everything or the defensive capabilities to tank through waves, you are left with the Crowd Control strategy. The team showcased has exactly that in mind, even with 3 weak affinity champions against the Valkyries.

The whole team was built to bring out Achak’s full support potential and Sicia’s damage potential, but we will be focusing on Achak’s performance here.

Team Build

  1. Drexthar: Accuracy aura if needed, HP Burn for Sicia and Achak activation, Provoke and Decrease Attack.
  2. Alure: Decrease Defense, Sleep, TM control. She is the most important champion against the boss.
  3. Umbral: Provoke, Block Buffs. Main source of Crowd Control against waves. She is in a Frost set as it also benefits Achak.
  4. Sicia: HP Burn, Decrease Defense and Weaken, general damage.
  5. Achak: HP Burn, Freeze, Strengthen, Block Debuffs, TM fill, Healing. The complete support. All in one unit, you have Block Debuffs that is very important against boss as you can get frozen, Strengthen to reduce damage taken, Healing and TM fill to keep your team going.

For the last round, we will target the boss so Alure can consistently reduce the TM, making the run smoother.

It is important to note that because of the high Defense here, Achak does not freeze all enemies and being a weak affinity, makes this champion unreliable as the only Crowd Control.
