Corvus was originally a soldier from Rose Apostles until something caused him to lose his faith and grow disillusioned with the world, and now he only wishes for its destruction. However, he still contains a gentle side within him.

Analysis

Overview

Sporting the highest base HP in the game, the 5 Dark Warrior Dark Corvus is the bruiser that packs the hardest punch, with his ultimate, Devil’s Descent. Due to the skill scaling off of his high Health pool and completely penetrating enemy Defense, Dark Corvus is commonly run on PvP offense with a specialized team built around him to support this damage and play out very slowly. He is considered a premier offensive attacker that can take out any threat with proper setup.

Strengths

One Shot, One Kill

Dark Corvus’ biggest strength comes from his ability to one shot many squishy unit, which turns to practically all units with soul burn. He is one of few units in the game capable of this feat.

Practically a Tank

With his high health pool, Dark Corvus can act as a team’s tank and can even provoke key enemy heroes out of their turn. On top of this, he can heal for his damage dealt, which mostly can sustain him back to full provided nothing stops him from healing.

Easy to Imprint

Since he can be imprinted with Fire Corvuses, he becomes one of the easiest 5 heroes to imprint. At the default state, he can provide HP% to his supports which is invaluable in keeping them alive through long engages. When concentrated, his imprint can give him another chunk of HP, which not only makes him tankier, but spikes up his damage up even further.

Weaknesses

Long Cooldown on Ultimate

Due to the powerful nature of his ultimate, it has one of the longest CDs in the game. This is supplemented by his skill 2, Ruin’s Advent, but this cooldown effectively gates him out of one tapping an enemy unit at the start out of battle.
*Note-This is can be Mitigated by Iseria, but it only goes to show how extensively Dark Corvus needs to be supported

Best with Soulburn

To reliably one shot most heroes, a 10 soul soulburn is recommended since the damage increase is approximately 80%. To this end, it is recommended that players remember the damage threshold for their own Dark Corvus and pay attention to enemy hero HP to know whether or not each instance a soulburn is required.

Difficult to Optimize

One way a defense can stop a Dark Corvus offense is to lock him down using debuffs such as blind, slow, and provoke. To become harder to stop, players must spend considerable resources to pair up Dark Corvus up with worth gear and artifact. This usually means a +30 artifact and gear with good rolls in many desirable substats.

Builds

PvP Speed

Since high HP on Dark Corvus is a must. The rest of his build can be supplemented 2 ways:


-High Speed with Crimson Seed/Timeless Anchor

OR

-High Res with Strak's Gauntlet 

 

Either way the aim is to improve his odds against being locked down by heroes such as Dizzy or Fallen Cecilia through either self cleansing the debuff or resisting it all together. It all comes down to what each player has at their disposal to build this beefcake of a hero.
