Raid Shadow Legends: Occult Brawler Champion Guide

Occult Brawler is an epic spirit affinity champion from the Ogryn Tribes faction in Raid Shadow Legends. He is the best poisoner for use in Clan Boss, as he is able to maintain high volumes of poison debuffs on a single enemy target during clan boss fights. The effectiveness of this is increased when paired with a champion who can counter-attack or ally-attack. This guide will provide an indepth overview of how best to build occult brawler for clan boss late, including masteries, gear and team compositions.

Occult Brawler Clan Boss Guide

Occult Brawler is arguably one of the best Poisoner in the game for a speed based composition on Clan Boss. He can be the primary source of poison damage for your Clan Boss team until end game if you never pull any other endgame damage dealer. He is also relatively easy to build as he doesn’t need any books to be effective.


The featured build for Occult Brawler has the Offense and Support Tree Mastery. The most important masteries you want on him are the T6 Warmaster and Master Hexer. He needs Warmaster and lifesteal set combination to stay alive as long as possible and Master Hexer to extend his Poisons on the Clan Boss.

For Offense tree crit rate, crit damage, T6 Warmaster are the choices. On the support tree take the accuracy masteries, avoid any TM masteries if you use him in a speedtuned CB team, Lore of Steel for more stats, Master Hexer and Sniper to increase the chances of placing Poisons and their duration.

Gear & Stats Build

The most important stats you want to build on OB are Accuracy, Speed and Defense. You need at least 200 accuracy to reliably place his debuffs on NM Clan Boss (230-250 for UNM without an extender). In terms of speed, you want to build him either as fast as possible for a speed comp. Or speed-tuned with your Clan Boss Team if you have a counterattack, usually 171-189 for a slow tune.

The other stat you want to build on him is Defense. If you are not using him in an Unkillable team, Defense is the only other stat you should be prioritizing on him. Due to Occult Brawler’s low Base Defense, it can be quite difficult to build him with high enough Defense. Try to use Defense % Boots instead of Speed Boots. This means you need to have Speed substats on most of your gear. 3k Defense is a good amount to aim for on OB. 3.5k Defense on him is considered sufficient for NM CB.

He needs to be in Lifesteal set for a standard CB team. You can use a broken pieces, Speed, Accuracy, or the new Perception set for you remaining two slots.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Glove: Defense %
  • Chest: Defense%
  • Boots: Defense % / Speed
  • Ring: Defense Amulet: Defense (With Accuracy Substats)
  • Banner: Accuracy / Defense (If you can build enough Accuracy from substats and Great Hall)

Team Compositions

It is important in unkillable and counterattack teams that Occult Brawler doesn’t have too many poisons on him due to his passive. If he stack 5 debuffs and takes an extra turn he may mess up the rotation. Sometimes in such compositions a cleanser is included, such as Doompriest or Bad El Kazar to prevent this from happening.

His passive doesn’t make a hit and this is why it works on any affinity. In many runs you will often find that due to Occult Brawler being a positive affinity, he is one of the last ones to die and does a decent job of keeping the poisons up by himself in this setting. Block debuffs prevents him from poisoning himself too often. An example of a good team setup for Clan Boss with Occult Brawler includes:

  1. Tayrel
  2. Skullcrusher
  3. Occult Brawler
  4. Rhazin
  5. Grizzled Jarl
