Pattern[edit | edit source]

Phase 1[edit | edit source]

Always uses Taunt every 4 turns. On all other turns, has:

  • 15% chance to Defensive Stance
  • 15% chance to Gloat
  • 25% chance to Face Slap
  • 45% chance to Heavy Slash

Moves cannot be used twice in a row: If the previous move would be repeated, the move that comes after it in the list above is selected instead. For example, if the previous move was Gloat, there is now a 0% chance of Gloat and a 40% chance of Face Slap with all the other probabilities unchanged.

If Heavy Slash is used, its probability chance is added to Face Slap instead of Defensive Stance.

On Ascension 19+, he will use Defensive Stance instead of Gloat. Defensive Stance can be cast at most twice per battle and subsequent casts are instead Gloats, regardless of ascension.

When HP drops below 50%, he will use Anger next turn and enter Phase 2.

Phase 2[edit | edit source]

After using Anger, will use Execute immediately.

For the next two turns, selects random moves (same exact behavior as in stage 1), then Executes again. Repeats this pattern (2 random moves, then Execute).

Tips[edit | edit source]

Once The Champ uses his stage 2 attacks, his strength will be very high, making his attacks do significantly more damage. Combined with the frail and vulnerable debuffs, the fight can quickly become very dangerous. Execution is a deadly attack; it can end up dealing damage in the twenties 2 times.

Generally, you want to spend the first half of the fight setting up, and then you want to very quickly kill the Champ once his HP drops below half.

Taunt is used on turn 4. Both Anger and Execute (from stage 2) will override Taunt, letting you avoid the weak if you get his health below half on turns 3 or 4. If you cannot burst this quickly (most decks cannot), avoid getting him angry on turns 5 and 6, as the weak effect makes it difficult for you burst properly through stage 2, and likely means you will eat another Execute.
