Introduction: The Malevolent Champion

Aspects_Layer9.gif The Shadow Warrior is also capable of applying a more strategic and agile close combat style that relies less on sheer strength and armor and more on dexterity and tactics. The Shadow Warrior of this aspect is a skilled, agile and battle-hardened warrior, disregarding magic use in favor of physical attacks.

Bonuses and Penalties

Like all special mounts, this Hound gives a large bonus to the rider's hitpoints and defense at the cost of increasing the regeneration penalty of combat arts.

However, this aspect mount gives a special bonus which offsets the regeneration penalty to Malevolent Champion. Therefore, the Malevolent Champion will desire this Hound. Combined with the Riding skill, regeneration times for this aspect will eventually be lower when mounted than on foot!

Malevolent Champion Set: Denderan's Tactical Genius

Denderan's Tactical Genius is a set specially focused on the Malevolent Champion aspect, giving bonuses to all five combat art levels and their regeneration times. Speed and careful execution are reaped when an armor wrought with such malevolence is worn. Many of the Shadow Warrior's characteristics that this set will boost will create in him a super fast killing machine! Primarily melee with a hint of spell makes this set especially nice for hybrids.
