Rank : S Tier

 

Vierna has a basic attack that deals magical damage to 1 enemy, and this is unaffected by Attack Speed increases. Her Talent causes her basic attacks to inflict Mortal Kiss for 8 seconds, which deals 25% AoE damage to the target and surrounding enemies in a larger area every second, while airborne enemies take half damage. Her ultimate skill, Reaper's Grasp, deals 700% (upgraded to 900%) AoE damage to enemies in range, and after a short delay, executes non-Elite, non-Boss enemies under 25% (upgraded to 35%) HP. Her first passive ability, Soul Extraction, absorbs the souls of enemies killed (by her?) up to 6 (upgraded to 12), each soul increases her Attack by 2% (upgraded to 3%), and when there are at least 2 enemies within her basic attack range, consumes 2 souls to increase her basic attack by +1 target. Her second passive ability, Skeletal Shield, applies Bone Shield for 8 (upgraded to 12) seconds to the ally with the lowest HP percentage in range, increasing their Physical Damage Reduction by 10% (upgraded to 15%) and dealing 10% (upgraded to 20%) AoE magical damage to nearby enemies every second, with a 30 second cooldown which is reduced by 2 seconds per kill, to a maximum reduction of 12 seconds. Her Bond skill is Pledge of Yore, which is unlocked when Silas is unlocked in the Heroes Gallery and heals the target of Bone Shield by 10% of her Attack per second.

 

Talent: Basic attacks inflict Mortal Kiss for 8 seconds, which deals 25% AoE damage to the target and surrounding enemies in a larger area every second, while airborne enemies take half damage.

 

Awaken 1: When inflicting Mortal Kiss, also inflicts 10% Magical Resistance Reduction.

Awaken 3: When Reaper's Grasp kills an enemy with Mortal Kiss, deal 120% magical damage to all surrounding enemies.

Awaken 5: Bone Shield deals double damage to enemies with Mortal Kiss.

Ultimate: Reaper's Grasp deals 700% (upgraded to 900%) AoE damage to enemies in range, and after a short delay, executes non-Elite, non-Boss enemies under 25% (upgraded to 35%) HP.

Summary: Vierna is a mage with a basic attack range who deals magical damage. Her abilities lean heavily towards AoE DPS, and she excels in this capacity, being the single strongest AoE damage champion currently available. Her Soul Extraction grants her a scaling Attack increase and allows her to attack an additional target, Skeletal Shield helps an ally by increasing their Physical Damage Reduction and also deals damage, and Reaper's Grasp outright executes low HP, normal enemies. Even airborne enemies need to fear her, despite the half damage, she's that powerful. Her Bond skill is Pledge of Yore, which grants the target of Bone Shield healing equal to 10% of her Attack per second simply by having previously obtained Silas. She shines in pretty much everywhere but particularly where she can use her AoE damage and effects, such as Campaign, Trial, Tide, Gear Raid 1, and group DPS Arena.

 

Attack Speed has no effect on her and should be avoided.
