Lord of Pain Valak

Background

Valak roamed around Velder in his heavy armor. In fact, we don't think he takes it off when he showers. He believed everyone was jealous of his powers and keeps it on in order to protect himself if he's ever ambushed. The demon that bonded into the armor has taken over his true personality. His armor can be damaged but his claw can still tear enemies apart. One day, he encountered Edan in the forest and they fought day and night. No one dared enter the forest until the clashing sound of swords stopped. Now... there is a search party looking for Colonel Edan.

Combo Modifications

Valak has access to all of the Reckless Fist combos with the following modifications:

  1. Reckless Fist's ZZZX will launch the enemy and cause Wound.

Skills

Icon Skill Type Cooldown Description Special Effects
AishaS5.png Increased Mana Regeneration Passive N/A Like all NPCs, Valak benefits from a heightened mana regeneration rate. All NPCs will have an extremely fast passive mana regeneration rate, and will also receive bonus MP when either hitting or being hit by players. Because of this passive, NPC skills are bound only by cooldown and not by their MP cost. Furthermore, NPCs can mana break combos at virtually any time.
SI PANDEMONIUM.png Awakening Passive N/A Valak can activate Awakening under 50% HP. Valak's awakening will significantly improve the damage of Wild Charge.
SI IRONHOWLING.png Roar Special Active N/A Valak unleashes a mighty roar that manifests itself as a blue aura that rapidly travels across the entire map. Valak will only use this skill if you have been outside of his vision for some time (prevents charging MP off-screen). He will stay still, wait for you, and if you do not come, he will Roar. This skill will instantly take away 33% of your HP and 400 MP upon contact. Will hit the entire map, but can be dodged with a well-timed special active
Shadow of Death.png Scar of Pain Passive N/A Valak's basic attacks and actives ignore 100% of the target's defense. This passive essentially gives Valak the strongest combos of any Epic NPC; for this reason, it is essential for players to mana break immediately when they are caught in Valak's combo.
RPassive5.png Counter Chance Passive N/A When Valak falls down, he can tap X to sweep his sword in a broad sweeping motion that does not knockdown. Valak will use this skill while you are close by after every knockdown; be careful, because he was extremely high attack speed and can activate his counter chance very quickly.
Spritualised Fury.PNG Spiritualised Fury Passive N/A Valak can activate awakening repeatedly. This skill gives Valak the unique ability to awaken more than once, unlike any other NPCs, as NPC awakenings tend to be permanent. However, Valak's AI does not use this ability very frequently; nor do NPCs tend to use awakening offensively in general.
Weaponbreaker.png Weapon Crash Active 4 Seconds Valak crushes his opponent's weapon with his claw, reducing their damage by 70%. Valak retains the original Weapon Break, making his damage reduction much stronger than Over Taker's. Valak will only use this active as part of his combo.
STactive1.png Shadow Step Active N/A Valak will thrust during Shadow Step, dealing heavy damage to anyone he pierces.
RFactive1.png Ground Impact Active N/A Valak smashes the ground with his claw, creating a small quake that launches opponents into the air. Valak will only use this active as part of his combo.
Chragebolt.png Gigantic Charged Bolt Special Active 7 Seconds Valak surrounds himself with a black sphere that sends out piercing black needles all around him.
Valkyrie Javelin.png Valkyrie's Javelin Special Active 14 Seconds Valak jumps into the air, summoning a number of black javelins that crash onto the ground and explode. Valak does not have as much delay executing this skill, permitting him to combo immediately after while you are thrown into the air.
Wild Charge.png Wild Charge Special Active 15 Seconds Valak unleashes a devastatingly strong punch. Valak charges Wild Charge immediately, unleashing full damage without any delay. For this reason, he never needs to charge Wild Charge. The range is shorter than the original.
Nuclear.png Nuclear Special Active 23 Seconds Valak summons a Nuclear Missile in front of him, creating a giant mushroom cloud that obliterates everything caught in it. Uses an old version of Nuclear, and much weaker than the Over Taker equivalent of Nuclear.

Strategy

Valak's passive "Scar of Pain" makes him a huge threat. Compounded to that, he is able to roar, forcing you to stay within his range. Catch him or die.

Valak's skills do not pose as much threat as his combos. He will spam Valkyrie's Javelin mindlessly even if you are on a platform below him. He also likes to use Charged Bolt, however due to its size it is likely you won't get the full damage as you are knocked out of it.

Avoid hitting Valak when he is in the air, he will always retaliate faster than you can react.

  • *UPDATE* Sakra Devanam can catch both raven NPCs with her counter skill because it neither knocks up (Elsword classes) nor knocks down (Elesis Grand Master). Simply knock down using any move then use counter before they do their "x" get up attack.
