Raid Shadow Legends: Golden Reaper Champion Guide

Golden Reaper is an epic void affinity champion from the knights revenant faction in Raid Shadow Legends. Her skills include a turn meter boost and team speed boost, as well as an AOE decrease attack, which has the potential to reduce a team mates cooldown. However, she is rarely selected for teams, as champions such as Seeker, High Khatun and Apothecary are favour. As such, Golden Reapers main use lies in Faction Wars, as this is an area she can provide some value due to the restrictions on champion selection. In this guide we have included detailed information on how to best setup Golden Reaper for Faction Wars teams. Including information on mastery, gear and stat selection.

Golden Reaper Faction Wars Build Guide

Golden Reaper is a fantastic support champion with a very unique kit. She can be used in arena as a speed booster and is helpful in all content where a speed boost might come in handy. This build is focused on completing faction wars 21st floor. However, it can be used universally everywhere.

In the late game setting, where epic books are more readily available, booking her A3 and A2 is essential.


The mastery tree will focus on the defense and support trees to help boost her sustain and help land her ATK down debuff. Since she’s all about speed, her gear might lack some accuracy, therefore Eagle-Eye was chosen to help boost it. It helps her land the A2 which is an AOE ATK down or turn meter decrease. Evil-eye will also come in handy for turn meter decrease. This has become critical to Faction Wars.

An alternative would be to do an Offense (Warmaster) and Support tree build. If you’re using Golden Reaper for arena Lore of Steel and Evil-eye is as far as you need to go and your gear and speed will be of more importance than masteries in late game.

Gear & Stats Build

Similar to Arbiter, you want to build Golden Reaper completely with maximum speed – so all speed gear and speed substats. Unlike Arbiter who has a revive and minor heal where you could possibly ignore main stats, Golden Reaper stands to strongly benefit from DEF% and HP% main stat gauntlets and chestplate. Speed should be >270 to make her truly useful. Accuracy for level 20 dungeons should always be >200.

Recommended Main Stats

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

Strategy & Tactics

This is one of the most difficult factions to defeat without legendaries in the game. It’s not often that teams with Golden Reaper are posted for the 21st floor. A strong team composition for this battle could include the following additional champions:

  1. Sinesha
  2. Wurlim Frostking
  3. Faceless
  4. Miscreated Monster

She is quite essential in allowing the team to get multiple hits in. She allows the team’s buffs to expire faster before the boss has a chance to do buff/debuff swap. The ATK down on the boss that she provides is absolutely critical. More turns means more control! Be careful with wave 2. Controlling the Valkyries is important. It’s not the end of the world if one of them goes off, but the raw damage from the hit is pretty high. Don’t use any buffs while Valkyries are alive if it can be avoided – you see Golden Reaper’s speed boost not being used.

Without a DEF down, the race to kill the boss before the health swap cooldown gets even more intense. On the very first attack, use only Golden Reaper’s A2 to decrease ATK – the boss is going to steal everything. At Golden Reaper’s speed, it’s possible to cycle through a few turns which is crucial when her A1 can reset all my champ’s skills.
