Shemira

“Corpsemaker”

[Total: 1208   Average: 4.5/5]

FACTION:

RARITY:

Shemira is a very powerful mage damage dealer. Her Tortured Souls ability can absolutely demolish enemy teams as not only does it do high damage, but it also hits every single enemy on the battlefield at the same time.

Survivability can be a problem early on, but at later levels she can last for much longer due to the healing from Tortured Souls and her passive life-leach.

As for utility, her silence can shutdown enemy mages. It’s extremely useful against heroes such as Arden, who can CC her and delay the casting of Tortured Souls.

While she is extremely strong late game and probably the best hero for it, she isn’t as crazy at lower levels as she can die before a cast of Tortured Souls goes off. She starts to excel around level 141 and scales extremely well with increased levels and gear.

She is also not as powerful compared to other heroes at endgame, which is around chapter 24. This is due to the fact that Shemira is really good when overleveled, but once the resonating cystral reaches 240, she has to be the same level as her team. With that said, she is still VERY good for PvE, just not as good.

Shemira is also a very strong pick for guild bosses. Her damage is insane and she can survive quite well with her self-healing. This is increased even further with an upgraded signature item.

The damage of her ultimate skill “Tortured Souls” is extremely strong and will hit all enemies on the battlefield.

Her life-leech can provide a huge amount of self-healing.

Crazy DPS on guild bosses or Wrizz in Hard Mode lab, especially with her Signature Item.

She can silence mages, preventing them from CCing or healing.

She requires time to ramp up to be fully effective and relies heavily on casting her ultimate skill “Tortured Souls”, if she dies before it goes off she will contribute very little to the battle.

The targets for Silence are random.

Vulnerable to burst heroes such as Silvina.

Her overall power starts to drop off around chapter 24.

It’s optimal to pair Shemira with heroes that can aid her in casting Tortured Souls as quickly as possible.

Rosalina is the best example of this synergy. If you can make it so Rosaline always follows Shemira in battle then this is a very powerful combo.

Other heroes such as Lyca and Ezizh can also work.

Patch 1.14.01:
“Soul Siphon” will now immediately stop if the target dies, in order to save time and increase her battle efficiency.

“Tortured Souls” Level 3 – Raised the percentage of health regeneration to 25% when the ability finishes and reduced the immediate health regeneration that is caused when dealing damage by 25%.

A soul forged in sorrow with nothing left to her in the world. This was Shemira in the final months of her life. Her husband had been a renowned healer, but her adoration and respect for him had gone out the window when she heard about the horrific acts of which he’d been accused. Her love soured such that when his execution came, she felt more anger than sadness. Niru had left her alone to care for their son in an uncaring world.

It wasn’t long after Niru’s execution that the fevers took hold on her boy, Silvestre. Had Niru been present, Shemira was sure that he could’ve done something. She did everything she could, calling on all the best remaining physicians of Esperia and keeping vigil with silent prayers at the child’s bedside. Her efforts, however, were not enough. After his burial, she felt as if she had nothing left to live for. There was no longer any reason to go about her days as she had before. She began spending almost every waking hour next to the grave of her son, sometimes filling the cemetery with a haunting wail, sometimes staring trancelike at the headstone for hours on end. She stopped taking food more often than not, and her face became hollow, her expression blank.

One day as she sat beside the grave, watching the last weak rays of sunlight kiss her son’s name carved in the stone, she heard her name. She couldn’t locate the source of the voice, but it seemed to be right next to her. She froze, recognizing the voice as that of her late husband. There was so much to say, so much to ask. Where could she begin? Exhaling slowly, she chose the one question that really mattered. “Why are you here?” She grimaced and tears flooded down her cheeks when she heard the answer. How could Silvestre possibly be saved at this point? A glimmer of hope had been placed in front of her from nowhere. The thought that it might wink out terrified her more than anything. She didn’t want to listen, but it was impossible. If there was somehow some chance, she would have to be strong enough to take it. “Prove it” she forced out from between gritted teeth.

The ground in front of her began to swell. She could feel tiny vibrations from the ground, as if something was disturbing the soil underneath the surface. First came a hand, rising through the dirt, then the pallid face and more until finally her son, or some form of him, stood before her. She struggled not to scream or pass out. A mix of awe, horror, and relief was pulling at each corner of her mind, threatening to tear it apart. She still knew what this meant for her, however. Direction. Purpose. She would never let any ill befall the boy again. She relayed this to Niru, who explained that the only way to be truly reunited was to cross through the veil of death and rejoin them on the other side.

She didn’t hesitate. She gave Niru a simple, short command and felt a sharp coldness spread through her chest and into her limbs. She drifted into what felt like a heavy sleep, content in the reassuring presence of the ones she needed most. When she awakened, she had found a kind of happiness she never thought she’d feel again.

In my experience so far (18-4) her best Synergy is her’s and Tasi’s ultimates. Shemira will deal significant damage to the entire enemy team within the 5 seconds, making the 30% damage bonus from Slumber very dangerous.

I’ve found that Shermira has a multitude of “synergies”. For example, I can pop Shemi’s ult, and then Saveas’ ult at the end of Shemira’s ult animation, and his ult animation will allow for 3 ticks of unavoidable damage. Shemi’s ult deals damage during Orthro’s ult, friendly or not. Rosaline for damage boost and ult spam. all three of these heroes can enable Shemira while contributing something else. I’m not saying Tasi’s bad, I’m just saying there are alternatives.

I stopped using her in Chapter 25, despite her being my only 5* hero with full upgraded gear. She’s still the guild boss champ though.

Am I the only one who’s kinda baffled by how pedestrian her lore is? Her lore is almost entirely about Niru and her boy. She has no major ties to anything. She has no greater calling. She has an entirely subjected role in her entire lore, the lore describes no future motivation of hers at all… it honestly seems more like her lore hypes up Niru and a future hero. How can this absolute blank slate of a character be the single most impactful hero in the game? It’s not like it’s unintentional that she ended up being powerful, she… Read more »

I think the same. So boring history for a powerful character. She is ascended Niru don’t? Wtf?

She is a mother. That in and of itself is enough proof of her strength. Her lore doesn’t need to be grandoise to justify her powers.

How does her signature item work? I Assume it means it does an EXTRA 12% dmg/6%/3% and not that her ult becomes really weak

Ok so I’m confused. On her hero page in the details section “i” says Life leech – 0
Does that mean life leech relics are useless for her?
Also her accuracy is 0 whats up with that??

p.s.not a new player

If the Leech value is = 0 it means that all relic with Life leech % will have no effect on her. You need at least 1 point on life leech. You need khasos (for the life leech passive) or “The Carnal Desire” a relic that allows you to Raise all teammates Life Leech by 3/5/8 points for every Mauler hero that is on the battlefield.

Szareski is incorrect (as of writing). Life Leach is a percentage of damage, so when they say +10% you can think of that as +10 to the info stats. Adding a +n percent will increase – the percentage of damage you deal being recovered as health by [current Life Leach] + n (0 + 15 = 15). You can see this by the green numbers on your hero as they deal damage. For Khasos and team, this will increase their current values accordingly.

whats stronger, using shem instead of tasi or staying with tasi and still have the 3 – 2 faction bonus i would lose with shem?

You should be building your team around Shemira, so if your team doesn’t accomodate it, it’s time to look at who to cut. The most popular combo in the game appears to be Shemira, Brutus, Lyca, Tasi, Nemora. It combines some of the most highly rated heroes in a single setup, which just so happens to also give a 3-faction bonus.

I would love to see some strategy tips for gear like Saveas:

“Give him the best gear you’ve got (especially boots) and enhance it.”

What gear should we first focus on for Shemira (And maybe all “main” heroes)?

you buy what you get,
on Saveas they sugested boots cause they give moste hp and his skill dmg is based on % of life they use 🙂

I dont understand shemira’s ult so after 161 the health generation has reduced to 25 from 100 but regenerates gradually?

No her HP regeneration is still 100% of the damage she dealt , but additionaly now she gets 25% heal of the damage WHILE she does her ultimate (not only after ultimate ended) .

Why is Dura’s Eye the recommended artifact for her instead of Dura’s Call/Blade (backline) or Dura’s Drape (front)?

Thank you for your reply 🙂

Alright, I understand, but I still don’t understand what’s the reason for Eye. Is it the same with Blade?

Soul Siphon and Tortured Souls both produce a ton of hits, and given her Wrath skill at L141 bumps her crit rating with high health, she produces a ton of crits, producing acceleration to her Tortured Souls ability. It keeps it constantly running once she gets going.

Her vulnerability to Silvina is true to almost every mage during early game.
Late game, at level 180 and above, Silvina (and the rest of the Legendary heroes) become irrelevant.

Anyway, Tortured Souls Level 161 skill description has a typo, “agility” should be “ability”.

In some case, Silence skill didn’t work(Ex: Vedan got silence and still can transform to Bats, Saveas also can attack while in Burning Acrimony)
