Builds

Look at my sword! Not my face!

Because Violet can reach an endgame power level with a Lifesteal gear set, building him is straightforward. The other two-piece set can be whatever is needed to round him out. Usually Health is best to help him survive the first turn in a fight, but if you're keeping him alive with a strong tank and/or healer, you may prefer a Critical set instead.

As for his Artifact, even though Violet Talisman has higher overall value and is very usable in PvE, Moonlight Dreamblade is a lot more effective on the first turn of a fight before Violet has eaten his apple. This reliability is indispensable in PvP when the first turn is much more volatile.

Analysis

Overview

To a lot of new players, Violet is the “He ate an apple and somehow killed my entire team” guy. The pretty boy from Perland is a foreign 5 Earth Thief who specializes in evasion and counterattacking. Most players can agree that whenever Violet appears in PvP, there is a good chance he is going to be annoying. When built correctly with RNG in his favor, he will dodge everything his opponents throw at him and become a one-man army.

Strengths

Unique Counterattack Mechanic

Violet has the unique ability to counterattack whenever an opponent misses against him. This is such a powerful mechanic that everything players build on Violet should be focused around it. In the right matchups, Violet can easily solo the entire enemy team.

Easy to Build

Due to Lifesteal's high value on Violet (owed to frequent counterattacks), he can be used in an endgame fight with the Gaveleet's set from Abyss. Since lv85 gear is very difficult to obtain in the early game, new players who reach the Gaveleet set can simply use this on him to achieve a similar power level to that of an end game set. If players have not reached the Gaveleet set, the lv71 Fire-linquish set or even the lv57 set will be serviceable.

Hard to Debuff

Violet’s S2 'Duel Accepted' cleanses 2 debuffs, so as long as he can eat his apple, he can remove any form of crowd control that isn't Sleep, Stun, Silence, or Provoke. Once he has eaten his apple and he gains 35% evasion, all attacks that miss will fail to land their debuff as well, making Violet a strong contender to run against Dizzy and other debuff-focused Ice-element heroes.

Weaknesses

Window of Vulnerability

Until Violet eats his apple with his S2, he has a big window of vulnerability where opponents may be able to kill him before he can counterattack. Countering Violet successfully usually involves taking advantage of this window.

Super Low Base Def

Violet has one of the lowest base Def values among all characters in the game. This makes him super easy to kill. He MUST be built to survive the first turn and subsequent chip damage by compensating with HP% and flat Def.

Bad AI despite damage scaling on consumed Focus

Violet’s AI is designed to use his S3 'Butterfly Cut' regardless of how much Focus he has, which can lead to badly optimized Focus and turn count. This makes him much better when controlled by a player on Offense while balancing out how annoying he can be on Defense.
