Daredevil

daredevil-940x528

Overview

  • Role: Marksman
  • Soul Stones: Heroic Chest, Campaign (6, 8, 9)
  • Artifact #1: Physical Attack
  • Features: I think her firepower is not enough a bit as DPS
  • Pet: Albus, Fenris, Mara

Daredevil is a physical DPS marksman, commonly known as DD.

Let me go ahead and say that I am not a big fan of DD and would not recommend her to your first team. Her abilities are not bad, but my assessment of her is that you don’t have to go out of your way to choose her out of the many DPSs available.

Daredevil seems to be quite capable on the mobile version, but to be honest, in the browser version, she is not one of the strongest DPS and not much used by top players. One of the reasons is that her Armor Penetration status is too low. Skill #4 can effectively increase her Armor Penetration status, but you can choose a DPS whose Armor Penetration status is originally high, not like Daredevil, who need the skill to increase Armor Pen. 

Also, unlike K’arkh and others, Daredevil does not have high firepower. So you can pair her with Nebula or Sebastian to increase her firepower. 
We have two Health skins in a row to improve her fragility, and if she can’t be used without that much skin boost, why not just use another hero?

Skills

White: Big Badda Boom!

Daredevil_skill_1

Throws a bomb at the center of the enemy team. The explosion deals damage to the affected enemies, sets them on fire for 7 seconds, and pushes them away.

Explosion damage: 46,096 (50% Physical attack + 30 * Skill Level)
Total burning damage: 9,609 (10% Physical attack + 9 * Skill Level)

The amount of pure burning damages in the skill description is not for every single damage, but the total damage for 7 seconds. It is pretty sad to see just a little 700~800 burning damages in a maxed-out state where Health can be over 1 million if the target is a tank.

Green: Discharge!

Daredevil_skill_2

Electrocutes the nearest enemy, dealing damage. The target and other enemies close to them are stunned for 1 second, and their attack speed and movement speed are decreased for 3 seconds.

Damage: 28,898 (25% Physical attack + 60 * Skill Level)
Chance to stun and slow is lowered if the target’s level is above 130
Cooldown: 8 seconds

I would have liked the stun time to be at least 2 seconds, if not 3 seconds.

The cooldown is 8 seconds, so it may be okay, but the fact that only 1-second stun duration makes this skill so-so skill. Being able to abort an enemy’s actions is a good thing, though.

Blue: Firefight

Fires an incendiary shell at the nearest enemy, dealing damage and setting them and other nearby enemies on fire for 5 seconds.

Damage: 15,521 (13% Physical attack + 35 * Skill Level + 700)
Total burning damage: 9,609 (10% Physical attack + 9 * Skill Level + 180)
Cooldown: 18 seconds

It is almost the same skill as the 1st skill.

Violet: Thirst for Blood

Daredevil ignores a portion of the armor of enemies she has set on fire.
Ignores 35,717 (30% Physical attack + 80 * Skill Level + 3,200) armor
Even with this skill, the enemy’s armor cannot be reduced to below zero.
It penetrates the armor of the burning enemy, meaning the targets of the 1st and 3rd skills.

By the way, these burns cannot be extinguished by Sebastian’s skill.

Investment Priorities

Skill Priorities

4 > 1 > 2 >= 4
If you are planning to have a team with only Daredevil for DPS,  it is impossible without maxing them all out because of the lack of firepower.

Skin Priorities

Rowdy (Critical) > Default (Agility) > Romantic/Spring (Health)
Since firepower is undeniably lacking, let’s keep increasing criticals.

Glyph Priorities

Armor Penetration > > Critical > Agility > Physical Attack > Health

It is valuable for her to be able to increase Armor Penetration, so make it your top priority to increase DD’s Armor Penetration more than any other hero’s Glyphs. Critical is also important.

Artifact Priorities

1 ( Physical Attack) >= 2 (Critical/Physical Attack) > 3 (Agility)
