Athalia is a melee assassin for the celestials faction. She’s an extremely strong hero in all aspects of the game.

What makes Athalia truly unique is her “Judgement” skill. This ability will allow her to instantly teleport to the enemy that is opposite of the position she is placed in at the start of the battle.

She’ll then deal a huge amount of burst damage to that enemy and stop them from regenerating any energy for small period of time.

Due to the way this skill works, it basically means that you can manually target any hero on the battlefield for her to attack at the start with high burst damage. No other hero in the game can do this.

What isn’t shown in the skill description is that she will actually knockback the enemy when she teleports to them, and then she’ll immediately transition into using Purging Frenzy. This will further knock them back (usually into the middle) and stun them.

This combination of attacks can prevent some heroes from using certain skills at the start of the battle. A notable example is Safiya. If Athalia is positioned to target her then Safiya will not cast her Spectral Disruption (the orange zone on the backline) ability and because it’s only cast once at the start of the battle she will never cast it again.

The option of choosing which enemy to nuke down at the start of the battle is priceless. It will win you battles, and make progression much easier.

Athalia’s one major downside is her ascension requirements. She can only be ascended by using copies of herself.

That means you’ll need exactly 14 Elite copies of her to obtain an Ascended version. After that, you’ll need 10 more copies for +5 stars.

She is extremely hard to obtain at a high ascension for the majority of players. However, she can still be very strong at legendary or mythic.

However, you can buy an Elite copy of her from the challenger store for 250k challenger coins. This means that you can technically guarantee to acquire her at Ascended eventually, although it’s going to take a long time.

The average player can probably expect to obtain one guaranteed copy of her per month, depending on their legends’ challenger rank and how lucky they get with obtaining challenger coins from wrizz hard mode in the arcane labyrinth. Of course, she can just be randomly pulled from summoning as well, but it’s unreliable.

If you want to fast-track her acquisition, the only way is through the Stargazer NPC in the noble tavern. The hero obtainable here is rotated every day, so she won’t be available from it most of the time. It costs diamonds or stargazer cards to use it, so you might want to save any cards you get for when she’s available.

Another unique feature of Athalia is perhaps not entirely herself, but the faction she belongs to. She’s a member of the powerful Celestial Order, and that allows her to represent any faction on the battlefield.

As an example, if you only have 2 heroes of the same faction on a team and you add her to it, she will count as the third member of that faction and grant the bonus.

This bonus is INSANE. It basically allows her to be added to any team with no downsides.

In general, mages are a good target as they’re usually the most fragile heroes.

Safiya – Stops her casting the Spectral Disruption zone.
Thane – Stops him diving into your team.
Arden – Can delay his CC and he’s relatively weak.
Mehira – Can stop her from summoning minions.

Kaz – Can completely dodge her initial burst.
Nara – She can sometimes pull Athalia towards her at the start of a battle.

Athalia could be described best in her current form as a living weapon. She was once a mortal woman, but after being Ascended by Dura and made a demigod to serve in the Celestial Order, she wields incredible power.

Athalia has always found Dura’s kindness for mortals perplexing. The mortal’ behavior often dishonored the very gods they claimed to revere, but Dura would always find a way to forgive their transgressions.

“They are imperfect, but are our creation nonetheless. We may guide them, but they will forever stray from the path. We must be there to see them back on it. Have pity on them and try to understand. They possess a spark that we do not.”

Athalia couldn’t help but feel the burning twinge of jealously at these sentiments. Were their hearts not blighted? Prone to the sickness of greed and hatred?

“They must suffer that which we do not. We forget what it is to exist under the yoke of disease, hunger, poverty, the constant loss of the things we cherish. To be mortal is to love no less than a Divine, but to do so with the knowledge that all of it will inevitably be torn away from you. To be a mortal is a symphony of joy and pain. To be mortal is to be imperfect and complete. It is imperative to remember who they are when you approach them.”

After Dura’s death, Athalia’s resentment of these creatures was cemented, the last remnants of her humanity forgotten. Had her goddess not intervened on their behalf, had she simply allowed her creation to fend for themselves, she would still exist. The most important thing, however, remained the same as ever. The preservation of The Light is the highest calling, and even some of the pitiful creatures that lived such petty, short lives were instrumental in this preservation. Athalia, however, was created as executioner as well as adjudicator, and her viewpoint is seldom nuanced. There is right and wrong in the world. Good and evil. Evil must be expunged.

Athalia now seeks out and destroys blasphemers with righteous fury. Those who dabble in the dark arts or conspire to aid the Hypogean conquest do so at the risk of becoming another body crumpled under her blessed blades. Her godless quarry are often discovered with their eyes charred and burst, lost to the light and the glory of this surviving avatar of Dura’s justice aspect. Athalia is an indispensable ally in the fight against the demonic armies, but she is a double-edged sword. Whomever wields her should expect to pay with a little pain of their own.

I have a question, is she really usefull in campaign? She does amazing thing for me at elite + in pvp, but at chapter 13 and 147 level she cannot even do a scratch. She excells with ascensions? Will she or is she usefull in late game( chap 20 and above). Got two from RNG, now i think if i should invest coins in her. Still for 450k u can have 3 copies of grezhoul or fawkes, and it seems for me they are better campaign carriers.Any experienced Players? Thx

I can only share my experience so far with her and what you do is up to you in the end. I have been using athalia since day 1 ( got her to elite + very early) and she carried me hard until a certain chapter which was pretty much then a wall I couldn’t get through, which is totally normal in this game. After I evolved shemira and got brutus up, I had a brutal combo with these 3, which carried me until chapter 19-20. Athalia won’t as much damage as shemira or be as tanky as brutus, but… Read more »

No one seems to mention this and I wonder if people are aware. If you sign up for the Legends Challenger Tournament (The second one down on the arena), and fight a few battles until you get stuck, every day you will get challenge tokens, and in the challenge part of the shop you can use these to buy Athalia or Ezizh along with some others from the other factions. Athalia is 250k of these tokens which is a lot but hey its a guaranteed Athalia. I’m getting about 5k tokens a day and am currently on 200k, the other… Read more »

Got Lucius as my first Elite summon and then got Athalia as my 2nd.
Wont really have any use for her though since I will NEVER be able to ascend her unless insane luck to pull tons of her so better off just using Kaz or Silvina if you need assassin.

I was super lucky and got 2 copies of her in a row in my 3rd day. She is doing every battle with 3 supports and tank.

I got her real soon too, but I have 1 problem with her. Till she got her third skill (Purging Frenzy) she worked incredibly well, rushing into the battle doing great damage on back line, but untill she got the Frenzy she does not work as well, because she does not finish her targets. She goes in, does damage, than uses her Frenzy which will throw the enemy away and she will attack different hero, meaning her usefulness for getting kill on backline quickly is gone. Was this intended?

I have the same issue, and I find it odd that no one is mentioning it more.

If you use athelia alongside nemora, nemora will always charm the target athalia burst’s down removing an enemy from the battlefield an gaining free energy for both hero’s. It’s all about who combos well with her that’s all.

Athalia is at the moment the only hero in her own faction. In other words, you need 216 Elite Athalia to ascend to the highest tier. Have fun try out her but prepare to reset at some point of time 🤣🤣🤣

BlackBacon

You actually need 14 of them to reach ascended with her. 10 more after that if you’re looking to 5 star her.

Thanks…. I Key in wrongly with my original post. I thought we need 28 copies as follow other faction ascending process. From your picture, it seems that she is different.

So to take her from legendary+ to Mythic does not take another legendary+ but an epic+, correct? That is different that the other faction heroes.

She is good through out the game. I do not have her, but through experience she can come in handy late game as I have been completely destroyed by an Athalia of the same rating as my hero.
