Raid Shadow Legends – Game Play

When you start the game you’ll be given your first choice, which champions to choose. With four to choose from and all at the Rare level, it can be a tough decision. Experts recommend choosing either Kael or Athel as your starter in Raid: Shadow Legends. Either one can take you all the way to the late-game.

When you check out champions in the game you’ll notice they each have an affinity. Their affinities give you a rough guide to their strengths and weaknesses vs. other affinities, much like rock, paper, scissors. Here’s what they mean:

  • Magic – Strong against Spirit, weak against Force
  • Spirit – Strong against Force, weak against Magic
  • Force – Strong against Magic, weak against Spirit

In addition to these three affinities, you’ll also see Void. Void is different in that it is equally strong in all situations, meaning there’s no special counters for a Void champion but neither is a Void champion particularly strong against any other affinity.
