Barbatos is the monsterification of wickedness. He rules thirty legions of demons, but being in the front line of battle is what he enjoys most. He's even willing to hurt himself in order to harm others.

Role: Attacker

Overview

Barbatos is all about dealing damage... in return for draining his own life. His most powerful move deals an absurd 90 base damage with no cooldown. He is also able to increase this with Damage Boost and/or Double Damage, which both have an immediate Extra Turn. If he gets a turn in uninterrupted by Anticipation, then he can do some serious damage. But unfortunately, his drawbacks are too big for him to actually be able to do this in many situations.

Pros:

  • Highest single-target damage output for a Legendary
  • Powerful setup skills
  • Generally low cooldowns and stamina costs
  • Good relic slots

Cons:

  • Many of his skills drain his own life
  • Bad stats
  • Useless Trait
  • Only 1 AoE skill that does a pathetic 35 damage

Recommended Moveset

Oh,Bloody Helll!

  • Master of Pain (90 Dark dmg + Self 30% Life Drain, 36s, 0 CD)
  • Hellfire (AoE 35 Special Dmg + Burn, 31s, 3 CD)
  • Devil Form / Corrupted Laceration (Form for Self Damage Boost + Self 15% Life Drain + Extra Turn, 33s, 1 CD) / (Laceration for 50 Dark Dmg + Nightmares, 34s, 1 CD)
  • Blood Covenant (Self Double Damage + Stamina Regen + Self Blood Covenant {-20% Life per turn for 2 Turns} + Extra Turn, 33s, 1 CD)

This is pretty self explanatory, attack in this order: Devil Form > Blood Covenant > Hellfire. Master of Pain is there in case you get CDA'd, and Corrupted Laceration is an alternative to Devil Form in case you don't want to suicide too quickly.

Recommended Runes: 1 Strength, 2 Team Speed; 2 Strength, 1 Team Speed

Recommended Relics: Cain's Sword; Wattz's Mask, Healing Mask

Recommended Allies

  • Warmaster Elvira's trait prevents him from being attacked by most monsters until his turn.
  • Madam Fusion can get rid of Anticipation monsters that threaten him, then turn transfer to him before the foes can get rid of him.
  • Akunobuki is another great ally, as she has Double Healing + Regen to counter Barbatos' self-Life Drains, can disable traits of anticipation monsters, and MegaTaunt to swivel them away from his glassy Life stat.

Counters

  • As Barbatos has a very low Speed and bad Trait, this makes him very vulnerable to most forms of Control. Anything that isn't CDA or Total Blind will work as Master of Pain has 0 CD and Devil Form and Blood Covenant will work normally even when Barbatos is Total Blinded. A great example would be Zimnyaya, as he can both Stun and Freeze Barbatos.
  • Due to Barbatos' bad Life, he's very susceptible to any Attackers with decent damage output: Light Attackers such as Taiga and Lady Solaris work especially well, seeing as they have the Elemental advantage.
  • Likewise, as his moves drain so much of Barbatos' Life, Torture Effects work very well: Saulot and Draghar (who is also a Light monster), who have Torture Effects on their Status Casters and can apply other Torture Effects on top of theirs (Draghar notably can apply Curse, which works excellently against Barbatos' Extra Turns) can easily chip down Barbatos' Life until he dies.
  • Speaking of Extra Turns, Anticipation Monsters such as Tijen (a Light Monster), Marquis De Flambe (who has a lot of Torture Effects) and Warmaster Necromancer (who can Turn Transfer into an Attacker or a Denier) can destroy Barbatos before he can set up. Master of Pain might have 90 damage, but it's only single target and Hellfire's measly 35 damage won't do much either off of a 3476 Power Stat. Rociuko is also a great counter, as she is a Light monster with Total Damage Reduction, meaning Barbatos won't be able to do anything, and attempting to use his ET + Double Damage/Damage Boost will trigger her Anticipation to PER his buff or use Team Evasion, meaning Barbatos used his Extra Turn for nothing. Another great counters are Warmaster Ragnarok, Nisael and Hornet, as they both use Life removal skills. Also, Nisael can apply Death Countdown to Barbatos and remove his stamina.
  • Dunn Ra and Mephisto just destroy Barbatos, as they have Mega Taunt, meaning their allies are protected from whatever Barbatos does. They can also apply Curse and resist Master of Pain due to their great life. Dunn Ra is especially great, as her being a Dark monster resists Barbatos' Master of Pain.
