Leorius End Game Build Guide

Leorius is currently one of the strongest and safest AOE nukers in the arena meta up to an including Platinum. At low hp he hits harder than any meta arena dps (even Trunda) and at full hp he hits average.

Being void affinity, he is not afraid of weak hits unlike many other meta arena dps champions. His skills allow him to survive the enemy CC and attacks of the enemy dps and then hit back dealing huge damage. He is mostly used in the arena, but reveals himself much better in offence than in defense. Besides arena, he’s used on FW, since he’s the best AOE damager in the faction, as well as dungeons and in the DT, although he is not the best in slot champion there. He can also be a fast nightmare campaign farmer and a solo minotaur speed runner, but more on that later. Like any arena Nuker, books are a must for him to maximise his damage.


Standard nuker arena masteries have been selected and used throughout the guide. Offence tree to T6 Helmsmasher given more than 250% Crit Dmg (otherwise pick Flawless Execution for more stable results), Stoked to fury is not needed because this talent is only used with Gurptuk in the high end Arena. Leorius is not commonly used in speed packs with Gurptuk + Leorius’s a2 protects from many CC effects. Defence tree to counterattack mastery with which Leorius can hit quite hard and kill the squishy enemy dps champions.

Gear & Stats Build

The equipment is standard for arena Nuker – Savage or Lethal for maximum damage. Cruel is best in slot for the off-set, although Crit Damage is another option. Despite the synergy Frenzy and Fury sets are not necessary for him, as they are weaker than ignore armour + they work only when the champion drops in HP, but the champion can be used in “Go first team” where Leorius will be at full HP and these sets will not give any value.

Since Leorius A2 protects him from every СС in the game, the immunity set is only useful against Hegemon’s Block Active Skills debuff, but for that you have to lose Savage, which will greatly decrease his damage. It’s better to put a Debuff removal champion or Nekhret in your team. Unlike Trunda, for whom accuracy is avoided to maximise dps, Leo like to be accurate, as weakness with A3 helps do more damage, and fear can be placed on the low resistance enemy dps.

The basic stats in items Leorius needs are Crit Rate, Crit Damage, Attack % and Speed. In the current reaction accessories meta speed may not be too high, 171-191 is enough.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Glove: Crit Damage %
  • Chest: Attack %
  • Boots: Attack % / Speed
  • Ring: Attack %
  • Amulet: Crit Damage %
  • Banner: Attack %

Arena Team & Strategy

Leorius is a good fit for defensive teams that can survive an enemy attack and go second. He benefits from Lilitu and Brogni Atk Up and protection as well as debuff removal champions. In combo with Nekhret and Cardiel, Leorius can also to attack with a team-up so he can often finish off enemy supports. Leorius works well against speed packs that don’t have Warlords or where the dps isn’t Soulless with Siphi that are tanky. Do not use him againt tanky teams without dps as Leorius will not lose any HP and will struggle with the tanky teams for a long time. Leorius is good against meta champions such as Kymar, Candraphon, Trunda, Foli and Tormin. He is not affected by sleep from Siphi.

On the other hand Leorius is vulnerable to Warlord, Hegemon and Ramantu as well as Rotos and Genbo that ignore Unkillable. Champions with block bonuses (Kimi, Gurptuk) can also be a problem and Arbiter can remove Leorius’ Unkillable.

Nightmare Campaign Farming

Leorius is one of the few champions in the game who can be reliable and fast Nightmare Campaign farmers with a 100% winrate. He does require a good combination of Speed, Crit Rate and Damage to achieve this, however you don’t need to change his arena build for this in any way and the average farming time for his is about 14-17 seconds.
