Souldrinker Late Game Arena Build Guide

Before we delve into the Masteries, we need to cover a few things. You are putting Souldrinker into your Arena team to die. It sounds crazy doesn’t it? However, This is exactly what we are trying to do. The reason for this is because Souldrinker is a very unique champion. Souldrinker has a passive no other champion in the game has. It puts 2 bombs on the enemy when he dies.

Thus, our Unorthodox Arena Strategy is the following:

  • Souldrinker is a part of our Arena Team.
  • Souldrinker gets nuked by enemy and dies.
  • Souldrinker passive triggers putting bombs on enemy.
  • The Enemy team is then put on a 2 turn timer.

They have 2 turns to remove the Bombs or Kill our remaining heroes. If they can’t, the Bombs go off and we win! Pretty Cool Arena Strategy wouldn’t you say?


The Masteries for Souldrinker are the following:

  • Defense Tree because the Defense tree has several Masteries which allow Souldrinker to take more damage.
  • T5 Defense Mastery – Selfless Defender.
  • T6 Defense Mastery – Bulwark.

These masteries are great because they reduce the damage our team takes. The damage gets redirected to our Souldrinker. This in turn helps our Souldrinker die faster to enable our Arena plan. Once the Souldrinker is sacrificed his passive triggers and places Bombs on the enemy. Support Tree has been chosen as the secondary tree. It grant us the more Accuracy that is needed to land our Bombs on the enemy.

Finally, these Support tree masteries are of use if our Souldrinker gets a turn:

  • T4 Support Mastery – Evil Eye.
  • T5 Support Mastery – Sniper.

It is unlikely our Souldrinker will survive the enemy nuke, but it can happen. Evil Eye can Decrease Enemy Turn Meter if we use Souldrinker A1 vs. them. Sniper – Can help our A3 skill if we don’t have it fully booked. The good thing about Souldrinker is you don’t really need to book him for him to be effective in this strategy.

Gear & Stats Build

The most important stats for Souldrinker are Attack & Accuracy. The more Attack you have the more Damage your Bombs will do when they explode. The more Accuracy you have the more likelihood of your Bombs landing on the enemy.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Gloves – Atk %
  • Chest – Atk %
  • Shoes – Atk %
  • Ring – Atk
  • Amulet – Atk
  • Banner – Acc

Try to go for Accuracy, Attack % and even Flat Atk substats in all your gear. You might think this is crazy. Flat Atk in your Sub-stats? Who would do something so wild? Well, ask yourself the following question: How much damage do you think a Bomb can do? The Bombs can do over 50k+ damage to a hero. Keep in mind, This is just 1 Bomb. Souldrinker puts up 2 Bombs.

Arena Strategy & Tactics

There are a few caveats to running this strategy in Arena. In order for the bombs strategy to be efficient you need to watch out for a few things: High Resistance tank teams with 500+ resistance in top gold 4 platinum will be immune to this strategy and will eat you for lunch. Teams that have giant shields from the shield set, e.g. Krisk or Harvest Jack also fall into this category

The same goes for the teams that have immunity sets on them. The bombs won’t be effective in this case even if you have lots of accuracy, since they won’t land. Debuff cleansers can also be problematic, e.g. Battlesage or Hakkorn. However, it’s a fun and unique strategy to try out and it can work decently depending on the metagame you’re facing!
