Elva Autumnborn Late Game Build Guide

Elva Autumnborn is a legendary from a recently released Sylvan watchers. At the time of writing in 2023 she was the only reviver available in the faction and she has been proven to have wide usefulness in PVE. This guide focuses on building Elva as a support for DPS champions to clear PVE content, mainly dungeons.

In terms of books her A3 and A2 are obvious priorities as they improve her Reviving, cleansing and buffing cooldowns. Her passive makes her a useful healer as well as it heals every turn based on the Max HP of each ally


While going down the Offense Tree to get Warmaster can be an option to help provide an additional source of damage on bosses, the Defense and Support Trees offer more universal benefits to Elva. The main focus in this selection of Masteries is damage mitigation (such as Blastproof), Turn Meter gain (Rapid Response) and enhanced Healing (Lay On Hands). Spirit Haste grants 24 Speed once fodder champions have been killed off.

Her T6 Mastery selection can vary depending her use cases. If you also plan to use your Elva in Arena, Fearsome Presence in conjunction with Polymorph can be a good choice. Unshakeable is also an option on high Resistance Elva builds. For the purpose of this guide, her primary purpose is dungeon content wherein Timely Intervention can be quite useful to save your DPS champions in a tight spot. While Elva does have a Revive skill, it is advised to turn it off in Presets as she will revive fodder champs unnecessarily if you’re running her in duo runs and not a full team.

Gear & Stats Build

Elva’s kit makes provisions for many of the requirements needed for duo Dungeon content. Her passive and A1 provides ample Healing which more or less removes the dependence on Regeneration sets (your DPS can instead run Immortal or no Healing sets at all if they’re tanky and fast enough) and her A2 provides both a Cleanse and Block Debuffs greatly alleviating the need for high Resistance in your builds.

High Resistance builds in Untouchable/Immunity/Stoneskin are possible options. The featured Elva is used in a tanky Arena Defense team, so Bolster has been selected to provide an additional level of support to the team.

While there are no specific sets required when building Elva as Dungeon Support, some stats are vitally important. High HP and Speed are necessary for keeping Elva alive. Resistance, while not needed, can prevent Elva from being Crowd Controlled (her Block Debuffs don’t have a 100% uptime) and can help your runs be more consistent.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Gauntlets: HP%
  • Chestplate: HP%
  • Boots: Speed
  • Ring: HP
  • Amulet: HP
  • Banner: Resistance

Dungeon Runs with Elva

Spider 24

When using Elva as a Dungeon Support in a duo setting, it’s often advised to disable her A3, as she’d otherwise revive fodder champs. Should you not be able to keep your DPS alive or running a full team, keeping her A3 active is an option as well. You would need your DPS to be ahead of your fodder champs in team placement for this to work and your DPS must also be of a higher Rarity than all your fodder champs.

In the example Spider 24 team below, Crypt King Graal serves as the sole DPS and Crowd Control champion while Elva serves as a support.

Ice Golem 24

Similarly to how Elva is able to provide support to an HP Burn DPS champion to clear Spider’s Den, she can also allow for duo clears in Ice Golem’s Peak. Much like before, it is advised to disable her A3 to prevent reviving of fodder champions and delaying the runs.

In the example Spider 24 team below, Crypt King Graal serves as the sole DPS and Crowd Control champion while Elva serves as a support.

Ice Golem 25

Elva can support a Poison DPS for Ice Golem as well. For the following Ice Golem 25 run, Gnishak was used as DPS and Elva as Support.

While Gnishak is often able to solo this stage, the 2nd wave of this floor possesses both Increase Crit Rate buffs and Increase Atk buffs. This allows the enemies to hit substantially harder and can spoil solo runs. As such, the stat requirements are fairly higher than most solo builds to achieve consistent clears hence the addition of Elva as an additional safety net.

Nether Spider

Due to Elva’s passive serving as a pseudo-Regeneration set to all allies, she can oftentimes provide enough Healing to a DPS purely on her own. Below is an example of a Nether Spider run whereby a Stoneskin Staltus is kept alive solely on Elva’s healing. The Nether Spider’s Poisons cannot be Blocked or Resisted, however Staltus is able to reflect these debuffs onto the Spider herself, making for quite speedy clears.
