Viperian Pros & Cons


  • Unique Playstyle: Viperian has a very distinct playstyle focused on sacrificing his own health for persistent debuffs and damage against enemies.
  • Area-of-Effect Damage: Both his ultimate and Exclusive Skill provide AoE damage potential.
  • Sustain: Viperian has HP recovery built into several of his skills, including the potential to recall Darkvipers for health.
  • Energy Reduction: His active "Enchantment Fang" and, potentially, his Exclusive Skill reduce enemy energy.
  • Unaffected Status: Portions of his kit grant him temporary immunity, offering some protection.


  • High-Risk, High-Reward: Viperian's power is directly tied to his willingness to sacrifice his own HP, making him a risky choice.
  • Management Required: Playing Viperian well requires careful management of his HP levels and timing of abilities to maximize effectiveness.
  • Susceptible to Burst: If Viperian cannot keep his health up through his skills, he can be vulnerable to burst damage.
  • Cooldown Reliance: His AoE damage, potent Energy reduction, and major self-healing are tied to cooldowns.
  • Dependent on Possession: Viperian's effectiveness is somewhat reliant on successfully possessing enemies with his Darkvipers.
