Riho Bonespear End Game Clan Boss Build Guide

Riho Bonespear is one of the latest Void Legendary Champions added to the Shadowkin Faction. She has an incredibly useful skill kit that allows her to play multiple roles in Clan Boss and in other content.

She can place all the important debuffs on the Clan Boss such as Decrease Attack, Decrease Defense and Weaken, including Decrease Crit Rate and HP Burn in one ability on a 3-turn cooldown. On top of that, she also provides a team debuff cleanse, burst heal and Block Debuffs on a 3-turn cooldown. Her A1 heals your ally with the lowest heal for added survivability.

Booking Riho’s A2 and A3 are necessary to lower their skill cooldowns to 3 turns. Booking her A1 is irrelevant as it only improves damage. If you’re lucky enough to max out her A2 and A3 first, you can save your Legendary books and skip maxing her A1.


For Clan Boss, you want to have Riho take the Offense and Defense Tree Masteries. For Offense, we will take Crit Rate, Crit Damage and all the CB damage increasing masteries on the left and into the T6 Warmaster mastery. In the Defense Tree, take the Damage mitigation mastery in Tough Skin, Blastproof, Rejuvenation and Delayed Death to increase survivability into the T5 counterattack mastery in Retribution.

Gear & Stats Build

This guide will focus on Riho in a long lasting non-unkillable CB team so she will have to be built defensively with high Defense and HP. In a team that is able to provide Increase Defense when she takes hits, it is recommended to have around 2.8k Defense. Without Increase Defense, 4.5k Defense is advised instead. However, if geared in a Stalwart set, which I highly recommend and is the best set for her this build, around 2.5k Defense is enough.

Once we achieve the recommended Def, build a good amount of HP. Around 50k HP is optimal. Then, build Riho with at least 225 accuracy for UNM to land her Debuffs and with enough speed to match your team’s speed tune. Once you have achieved the desired Def, Hp, Accuracy and Speed, you can focus on her damage. Build her with Crit Rate, Crit Damage, and with as much Attack as you can.

You can use any combination of Stat % on your artifact and Stat on your Accessories to achieve the recommended stats.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Glove: Crit Rate/ Crit Damage/ HP%/ Def %
  • Chest: HP %/ Def %
  • Boots: HP %/Def %/ Speed
  • Ring: HP/Def/Atk
  • Amulet: HP/Def/Atk
  • Banner: Accuracy/HP/Def/Atk

Slowtuned CB Team & Strategy

This is an example of a slowtuned CB team with Riho Bonespear as crucial piece of the puzzle for the team and their speeds:

This is a 1:1 style team that is built to survive long into the CB fight. This team combination has the following synergies between each champion to survive long into the CB fight:

  1. Double Ally Protection from Tyrant Ixlimor and Toragi the Frog.
  2. Shields from Toragi and Brogni for an added layer for protection.
  3. Brogni Enhancemes the shields from Toragi.
  4. Riho Bonespear and Brogni provides healing to the team as well and Block Debuffs to block the affinity debuff and stun.
  5. Riho applies Dec Def and Dec Attack and Toragi as a back up Dec Attack and some poisons.

Shields are a very important aspect in Brogni based teams as Brogni reflect damage done to the Shield and Toragi offers a shield for Brogni to enhance. Geomancer benefits the teams that last very long as it allows him to rack up tons of damage every time the CB takes a turn. This team is capable of surviving past turn 120 while doing 120+m damage on Spirit affinity. It works on other affinities as well but will not survive as long and do as much damage. It is still capable of 1 keying on Magic, and at least 2 keying on Force. This team also works on NM.

Riho Bonespear End Game Arena Build Guide

Riho Bonespear is a legendary Shadowkin champion that can excel in Arena including the Platinum tier with the current meta. Her passive allows her to instantly reflect the debuffs back onto the attacker making her a good option against teams that have Crowd Control skills like Kymar, Hegemon, Madame Serris, Tormin and Krisk. She is an improvement over Skytouched Shaman who needs immunity to fulfill this role in a similar fashion.


Her A3 ability allows her to instantly cleanse the debuffs and apply Block Debuffs on the team as well as provide some healing. Together this makes it possible to overcome some problematic Defensive teams with her. In Platinum Arena there are teams with high resistance, so while her A2 skill can provide Stuns, it may not be so reliable.

If you are using Riho only for Arena she does not need her skills booked. However, her cooldown skills can be booked if you’re planning on using her in PVE for more frequent application.


The masteries on the Support tree have been selected to maximise her Speed as much as possible with a bit of Accuracy. The main mastery to aim for is the Timely Intervention at T6 to go first after the enemies, cleanse, heal and buff allies. There is generally not enough Accuracy to utilise the Evil eye in Plat Arena. Lore of Steel is another key mastery to ensure Riho has every bit of Speed she can get.

In the Defense Tree Improved Parry and Resurgent were selected so that Riho has higher chance to survive nukes. Cycle of revenge was selected to try and cut in after enemies uses someone like Hegemon. Selfless Defender is also a good option to ensure nukers are able to survive when enemy Hegemon deals damage. Wisdom of Battle is a nice backup mastery in case something goes wrong and the fight is prolonged.

Gear & Stats Build

For Riho in offence teams triple Speed sets are recommended to ensure she is the fastest champion to be able to cleanse debuffs. Triple Speed set will also give you the most benefit out of Lore of Steel mastery. Regarding the gear, another priority would be any Reaction accessories you have even if it damages the other stats. HP / Def mainstat for ring and amulet with accuracy rolls would be perfect. Getting past 200 accuracy to land some debuffs from A2 for some utility has merit.

The substats to look out for are speed as the main priority and then defensive stats like Def and HP are wanted. Building higher Defense is better because you’ll get nuked by enemy hegemons with no Defense Down on you so you will survive if you build decent defense at around 3.7k.

Recommended Main Stats

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

Arena Team & Strategy

If you are in Platinum where Hegemons are a common sight, you won’t be able to go first due to their Passive. Let Hegemons take a turn. This will make proc Riho’s T6 mastery Timely Intervention which will give her 20% turn meter. She can also get extra 15% turn meter if enemy places critical hits on your team using cycle of revenge from T5 mastery, that has a 50% chance to proc.

She will then cleanse all the debuffs from the Hegemon or other debuffers and let your 2nd champion go that will manipulate the Turn Meter and allow you to nuke the opponents in turn. Some examples of such champions can be Psylar, Kymar, Seeker, Lyssandra, Arbiter and others.

Your nuker should be speed tuned so you dont get cut in. It is advisable to use Defense Down champions like Serris, Deacon, Uugo, Tayrel, Stag Knight, Lydia or any other Defense Down champion so your nuker is able to kill enemy team. In the following showcases the team used is:

  • Kymar lead for CC
  • Riho for reactive cleanse
  • Ithos for Nuke

Hard Doom Tower Runs

Nether Spider

Riho is useful against the Nether Spider due to her ability to Cleanse, Heal, and apply Block Debuffs for your team. A similar build to the Arena build in the previous page can be used with her being fast and tanky with high HP and Defense so she can survive to cleanse and heal all allies. Her A2 applies a ton of debuffs against the boss including HP burn, Decrease Crit Rate, Defense Down and Attack down which allows you to do more damage and decrease the boss’ damage.

This team below is an example of a team against the Hard Doom Tower 90 Nether Spider. We have:

  1. Riho offering the utility mentioned above.
  2. Drexthar providing AOE HP Burn that will be the main source of damage against the Nether Spider.
  3. Scyl of the Drakes to provide a constant source of healing, Revives in case anything goes wrong, Decrease Speed and TM drop against the Boss.
  4. Double Rotos for additional DPS but they are not really crucial to the team. Any other DPS champion or Supports can replace the double Rotos.

Frost Spider

Riho is useful against the Frost Spider due to her ability to Cleanse the annoying debuffs the Frost Spider places especially Freeze. Healing and applying Block Debuffs for your team is valuable. A similar build to the Arena build in the previous page can be used with her being fast and tanky with high HP and Defense so she can survive to cleanse and heal all allies. Unless you’ve built Riho with very high accuracy, her A2 may not do anything against the Boss due to its absurdly high resistance until an HP burn is placed. You can consider locking out her A2 specifically against this boss in the AI settings so she uses her A1 instead to heal your allies.

This team below is an example of a team against the Hard Doom Tower 120 Frost Spider. We have:

  1. Drexthar as the primary AOE HP Burn and DPS champion.
  2. Yoshi as the secondary HP Burn that provides Increase Accuracy for the team against the high Resistance of the Frost Spider.
  3. Bad-el as a Cleanser, Healer, and Poison DPS.
  4. Duchess supports the team with her buffs and revives when someone dies.
  5. Riho offering the utility described above.

Floor 112

This is a floor that many players struggle with because of the freezes from multiple Gurgoh and Tormin. Riho is great support option for a Floor 112 team as she is able to reflect Gurgoh’s freeze, cleanse the freeze, place Block Debuffs, and heal your allies.

This team below is an example of a team used against Hard Doom Tower Floor 112. We have:

  1. Duchess to carry the team by placing Block Debuff, Revives, and Protection for the team through her Veil buff.
  2. Bad-el as a secondary Cleanser and Healer. He also offers damage in the form of Poisons.
  3. Lydia with her Buffs, Debuffs, and CC with her passive A1 Fears whenever your team gets frozen.
  4. Ithos as the main DPS.
  5. Riho offering the utility mentioned above.
