Giant Reference comparing character traits and abilities - October 14, 2018


Given the vast amount of information from the character pages as to what they can do, how effectively they can do those things and how they have many little effects added to what they can do, this page was setup to help better show how all the characters compare to one another across a number of areas and abilities. The characters' basic attacks are already covered in the "Combat - Basics" dev blog page.


Since this page has been done up during a very early stage of development for The Demon Rush: Legends Corrupt, there is a strong possibility that this page will need to be edited if characters/abilities are changed for the sake of balance.


There is a lot of information even on these reference pages, and are meant to look more towards late-game/end-game character building, and is meant as a way to look ahead to this stage of play, as well.



Final Max Stats (Soul Triad and Weapons)

Powerful Body Abilities


Each character has their own version of a very powerful Body ability which is their strongest Body attack, most of which gain a double damage bonus during the Body Field Effect (on top of the double damage that the Body Field Effect doles out to begin with), with Claire's Crimson Acrobat being the exception.


Character

Powerful Body Ability

Details

Cherry

Hyper Blade

Deals Attack x 1.5 damage per slash for 4 slashes over an area. Gains no damage boosts, so all 4 slashes landing on one enemy with her Wild Whetstone passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect totals up to only Attack x 12 damage (about 240 damage ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost). While weak for a top Body ability, Cherry is invincible during usage, its cooldown can be reduced to 15 seconds (very short cooldown for a top Body ability) and it does hit an area, however awkwardly.

Knight

Power Drive

Deals Attack x 1.8 damage after making a giant leap forward. Can gain passives that triple damage at its base and a passive to boost area of effect, and his Hyperdrive passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect totals to Attack x 10.8 damage (about 432 damage at max Attack stat of 40 ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost). Also weak for a top Body ability, but it can hit an area, and with the Sightless weapon, can inflict Blind to that area, or with the Ragnarok weapon, can shorten cooldown from 20 seconds to 15 seconds, making it able to be used often.

Alberto

Haymaker

Deals Attack x 5 damage. Can gain passives that quadruple damage and inflict Stun, and with his The Punch To End All Punches passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect, totals to Attack x 40 (800 damage ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost). Has a short cooldown of 20 seconds and inflicts Stun, making this a very useful top Body ability.

Tara

Kill Chop

Deals Attack x 5 damage. Can gain passives that triple damage, and with her Confirmed Kill passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect, totals to Attack x 30 (1200 damage at max Attack stat of 40 ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost and offensive boosts like Advantage Pushback, High Velocity and Willpower). Has a cooldown of 30 seconds.

Pound

Claymore Crash

Deals Attack x 5 damage. Can gain passives that boost damage by 50%, and with his Claymost passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect, totals to Attack x 15 (600 damage at max Attack stat of 40 ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost and offensive boosts like Dark Arts and Vampire). Has a cooldown of 30 seconds.

Cook

Viper Cudgel

Deals Attack x 6 damage. Can gain passives that double damage, and with his Legend Viper Cudgel passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect and holding his ranged weapon during Viper Cudgel (and should be done during Body attacks, due to the +50% power boost), totals to Attack x 36 (1800 damage at max Attack stat of 50 ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost and the up to 3x offensive boost from Strength). By far the most powerful Body damage output (even just at its base), but has a massive cooldown of 45 seconds.

Claire

Crimson Acrobat

Deals Attack x 0.3 per slash over 8 slashes. Can gain passives that double damage, and though Claire has no passive to add another double damage during the Body Field Effect, she does have Scorpion Nature, which triples Crimson Acrobat damage against knocked down opponents (alongside the base +50% boost for knocked down enemies), and totals to Attack x 21.6 (432 damage to a knocked down enemy, ignoring Prone, which would cause Claire to deal 2x damage instead of +50% to all knocked down enemies). Though this is by far one of the weakest top Body abilities from a single-target standpoint, Claire can reduce its cooldown to 10 seconds, making it the fastest.

Jimmy

Pressure Point

Deals Attack x 5 damage. Can gain passives that triple damage, and with his High Pressure passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect, totals to Attack x 30 (600 damage ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost). Can have its cooldown reduced as low as 15 seconds, giving it a decent balance of power and speed.

Brooks

Pickaxe

Deals Attack x 5 damage. Can gain passives that triple damage, and with his Strike Gold passive adding another double damage during the Body Field Effect, totals to Attack x 30 (1200 damage at max Attack stat of 40 ignoring the Body Field Effect's base double attack boost). Can reduce cooldown to 25 seconds.

Healing and reviving abilities


Mind and Siphon ability differences are noted here. Why is this important? Mind abilities that heal influence the Field Effect more towards the defensive Mind (where you party can recuperate easier), while Siphon influences help for a push towards a more offensive Field Effect (allowing the party to get back on the offense easier). As with all other comparisons, these abilities are assumed to be customized to the maximum and some active abilities that don't normally heal will be mentioned if they have passives that add healing.


Also note that Alberto's healing abilities with maxed out Inner Strength will be 2.5x stronger while Inner Strength is active.

Projectiles


Like other comparisons, these abilities are considered customized to their maximum and does not include outside Active Ability buffs (such as Dark Arts). When total damage is listed, this is based off of max Attack stat (but through Soul Triad only, not through weapons) and any damage boosting passives. Brooks' basic hitscan attack does not count as a projectile in this instance.


Character

Ability

Details

Cherry

Bladecopter

Deals 60 damage (180 damage with max level Lyra Buster) and inflicts 4 seconds of Stun. If an enemy is killed by Bladecopter, Attack Chopper is triggered and Bladecopter deals 180 damage (540 with Lyra Buster) and 6 seconds of Stun.

Brooks

Flashbang

Inflicts Blind to a very large area for 12 seconds. Has 5 second cooldown with max level Tactical Rifle equipped.


Beams


Like other comparisons, these abilities are considered to be at maximum. All beams deal damage 10 times per second, and total damage is presented as though the beam was hitting an enemy from start to end of the beam's lifespan.


Beam abilities are extremely powerful, but leave the user unable to block or dodge, and the beam must be focused on the chosen target for most all of the beam's lifespan to be effective.


Character

Ability

Details

Alberto

Planet Destroyer

Deals up to 480 damage (960 damage with max level Gigas Fists) after focus for 8 seconds (without the Radiation passive or with Radiation and the beam falls off the target for a split second), or with a full Radiation focus, a maximum of 2160 damage (4320 damage with max level Gigas Fists) after the 8 seconds. 30 second cooldown.

Pound

Viper King

Deals up to 640 damage (1280 damage with max level Zweihanders) after focus for 8 seconds. If Pound has Vampire Ancient and uses Vampire on an ally, Viper King can deal 1920 damage (3840 damage with max level Zweihanders), though this means sacrificing Pound's other abilities by putting them on cooldown. 20 second cooldown.

Cook

Viper Beam

Deals up to 600 damage (1200 damage with max level Burnarang) after focus for 4 seconds and adds a long trail of fire from the initial triggering of the beam if the Fire Siphon Field Effect is active and Cook has the Dragon's Breath passive. Though it is the weakest overall beam, it requires very little setup to deal decent damage and leave Cook vulnerable for only half the time of the other beams. 20 second cooldown.


Barriers


Like other comparisons, these abilities are considered to be at maximum.


Barriers nullify just about every attack if the enemy hits the barrier as they try to hit a target, be it melee attacks, projectiles, beams or wide-area effects (one notable exception is the Teras' attack-all Earthquake, though).


Character

Ability

Details

Pound

Barrier

Covers a large area and lasts 8 seconds. 20 second cooldown.

Jimmy

Withstand Seal

Half the area of Pound's Barrier and lasts 3 seconds, but has only a 5 second cooldown, allowing it to re-deployed in different areas easier as needed.


Attack/Offensive buffs


Like other comparisons, these abilities are considered to be at maximum. Includes Attack stat boosts, as well as anything that increases general offense, damage of basic attacks or the damage of a variety of abilities (but not, say, Viper King Damage passive to boost damage only for Viper King, which many Active Abilities have, or Cherry's Squall Strengthen which boosts only Violent Gust during the Wind Siphon Field Effect). This is meant more for general lasting effects.


Though there are a lot of buffs/debuffs included in this list, this is meant more to emphasize that there are a large number of ways characters can gain general offensive boosts.

Invincible abilities

Character

Ability

Details

Cherry

Hyper Blade

Cherry deals 4 slashes at 30 damage per slash (120 per slash during the Body Field Effect) over a sizeable area, and is invincible while doing so.

Cherry

Stand Ground

Cherry suffers 0 damage while blocking. Though technically not an actual invincible ability (which ignore damage and effects outright and skips the damage forumlae), this still counts, since Cherry nullifies all damage and the requirement to block for Stand Ground to activate causes Stagger/Stun/Knockdown/Knockback to not work against her.

Cherry

Line Overdrive

Brooks

Blastback/Leaps and Bounds

Brooks deals 80 damage to large area in front of him while performing an invincible leap backwards.


Cooldown reduction


Like other comparisons, these abilities and Attack stat (through Soul Triad) are considered to be at maximum. This is different from passive abilities that permanently lower cooldown on a specific per-ability basis; focus here is more towards Active Abilities being triggered.


Character

Ability

Details

Brooks

Druid Psyche

If the Earth Siphon Field Effect is active, Brooks' Mind abilities have 3 seconds less cooldown.


Elemental themes under the elemental Siphon Field Effects


Like other comparisons, these abilities and Attack stat (through Soul Triad) are considered to be at maximum.


Since each character has differing reasons to have their Siphon build push the Field Effect towards their own elemental Siphon Field Effect, this will briefly outline their theme and what can be expected from their elemental control over the Field Effect. The name of their elemental theme has no effect in-game (is just flavour text here), as the only important part is what their element is.


Character

Innate Element

Elemental Theme

Battlefield Goals

Cherry

Wind

Wind

Use the Wind Siphon Field Effect to create a battlefield of constant Knockback to stall the enemy, through the Wind Siphon Field Effect's windbursts, Cherry's Tornados (as she can bring forth 4 with one call) and Cherry's burst damage Violent Gusts, as well as use Dark Energy to reduce enemy Attack stats to stall them further and keep the Wind Siphon Field Effect in play.

Knight

Water

Ice

Use the Water Siphon Field Effect to being forth even more sets of Deep Freeze Ice so they can be exploded by Fumarole to create over 100 projectiles that each deal 120 damage (240 with max level Devastator) flying across the battlefield in every direction (13 Deep Freeze ice sets x 8 ice spikes on explode = 104).

Alberto

Wind

Lightning

Use the Wind Siphon Field Effect to allow Static to not only Stun, but create powerful (but erratic) Thunder Storms and use System Shock to keep enemies locked in the area of the Thunder Storms.

Tara

Earth

Earth

Use the Earth Siphon Field Effect to not only make use of attack-all abilities, but to fill the battlefield with Instant Death Bottomless Pit Chasms to end fights very early.

Pound

Earth

Nature

Use the Earth Siphon Field Effect to grow wide-area, high-damage Death Forests. A single Death Forest tree, if the enemy is hit across all stages of it from Mindspike to full grown Dark Arts-infused Death Forest tree, can do close to 3000 damage PER TREE (ignoring Dark Arts and Vampire damage boosts to Pound, Pound's choice of weapon, debuffs like Claire's Throat Jab, etc.), making Pound's slow growing Death Forest deadly if the party keeps the enemy fighting where the forest grows.

Cook

Fire

Fire

Use the Fire Siphon Field Effect to start and spread fires using Field Flame, Viper Beam/Dragon's Breath, Viper Blast/Incendiary and Far Shot with Conflagration to create a field of damage-over-time flames that waste away the enemy while Cook fights on as usual. An enemy suffering from damage from 5 flames at once will suffer 75 damage per second (150 if Cook has a max level Burnarang), and this large area will ensure that more than one enemy will be engulfed in these infernos.

Claire

Water

Water

Use the Water Siphon Field Effect with Rainfall to cover the battlefield in up to 24 Knockdown-inflicting pools of water in one call so that they cannot fight back for a short time and suffer more damage while they're prone. For good measure, use Torrent to place even more pools of water onto the battlefield, and for even more good measure, use Toxic Gas/Acid Rain to make those pools of water poisonous.

Jimmy

Fire

Explosion

Use Shurikens and Smoke Grenades to fill enemies and the battlefield with combustible Fire Siphon tags, then use Crimson Force to detonate them in a chain for high damage and a ridiculous number of explosions under the Fire Siphon Field Effect.

Brooks

Earth

Gravity

Control who goes where on the battlefield. Use Field Tactics to drag allies to Brooks and use Power Drag to drag an enemy to Brooks (then deal Body attacks and blast them away), or throw out a Pandemonium to send enemies flying every which way. Use High Gravity and Black Hole to immobilize enemies and keep the Earth Siphon Field Effect active to enhance Brooks' other attacks and lower their movement speed with the Field Effect's sandstorm so that they move so slowly, they might as well be immobilized from that, too.
