Prayer of Life
Skill Enhanced: Foremother’s Blessing
Before Awakening: Heals lightly wounded units in a nearby friendly Legion with the lowest Unit Count (Healing Factor 400) and grants the Legion Onslaught, increasing normal attack damage dealt by 20% for 5s.
After Awakening: Heals lightly wounded units in a nearby friendly Legion with the lowest Unit Count (Healing Factor 400) and grants them Onslaught, increasing normal attack damage dealt by 20% for 5s, while also healing Pan’s Legion (Healing Factor 200).
One of the standout traits of Nika is her impressive damage output. Her first skill is something you’d want to max out. This skill, dealing a physical damage factor of 1500, is a melee range attack inflicting substantial damage on an enemy legion. As an added bonus, it also reduces the enemy’s HP by 30% for three seconds.
Nika’s second skill is tailor-made for peacekeeping, specifically for battling darklings and dark creatures. This skill gives a hefty 30% damage bonus, making your peacekeeping missions considerably easier.
Her third skill, Knight Prowler, a passive one, boosts the Infantry units led by Nika by granting a 20% physical attack bonus and a 10% marching speed bonus. This increased marching speed is particularly advantageous when going against Cavalry units.
Blade Maelstrom, Nika’s fourth skill, augments her hero skill damage by 10 and counterattack by 20. The counterattack aspect is crucial, as tanking, or absorbing enemy damage, is a significant part of an infantry player’s strategy.
Nika’s awakened skill provides a 50% chance of dealing an additional hero skill damage factor of 500 when launching a normal attack. The catch is, this only triggers if the target has fewer than 50 units remaining, and can only trigger once every two seconds.
Recommended Nika’s Talent Trees
The recommended talent build for Nika is heavy on the Infantry Path, focusing on counter attack damage and healing. This build is excellent for absorbing damage.
Pairing Nika with Garwood and focusing on healing can be quite effective.
However, adjusting the talent tree and pairing her with Madeline offers a different, more damage-focused approach.
Epic hero Bakhar can also pair well with Nika, offering damage, defense, and bleed effect when counterattacking.
Alternatively, you could pair her with Eliana for additional shield effects, though Bakar is usually a more effective choice.
Strategies for using Nika
While Nika can deliver damage, her primary role as an infantry unit is to tank.
When playing with Nika, your main target should be Cavalry units. Slowing them down allows your teammates to take them down more easily.
Obtaining Nika is pretty straightforward – she is a free-to-play legendary hero that you can get from the gold chest or by purchasing a relatively cheap bundle. Investing in Nika and playing the role of a tank can dramatically shift the tide of a battle.
Ultimately, choosing the right strategy, pairings, and talent builds when playing with Nika can lead to significant in-game advantages.
Remember, as an infantry player, your main objective is to tank damage and protect your team. And with Nika by your side, achieving this goal becomes a whole lot easier.
