Chaos Avenger Class Skills

A Chaos Amulet is Yours to Wield!AdventureQuest Worlds turns 13 this year, and our month of Chaos begins October 1st with a new challenge boss, [Champion] Drakath! Then, return on Friday, October 8th for our new class, Chaos Avenger!

How to Unlock the Class

What if Drakath's Chaos Amulet was yours to wield? Time to find out! To unlock the class, you'll have to defeat the Champion of Chaos himself and obtain his Insignias to earn a Chaos Amulet of your own. There is no Adventure Coin variant of the Chaos Avenger class.

Chaos Avenger Details

Recommended enhancement: Lucky. In one timeline, The Hero managed to defeat Drakath and get a hold of their Chaos Amulet. Instead of becoming the Slayer who tried to destroy Lore, The Hero ended up becoming the Avenger that saved it.

Mana Regen: The Chaos Avenger regains 50 mana when they strike a target with Chaos Greatsword.

Skill Breakdown

Chaos Greatsword
Rank needed: 1 / Auto Attack
Target: Enemy
Type: Physical
Range: MeleeCooldown: 3 seconds

Swing your Greatsword down on your target for massive damage. Applies a stack of Chaos Fury, increasing your Crit Chance and Crit Damage by 6% for 12 seconds, stacks to 15. Deals double damage to Branded targets.

The Chaos Avenger's weapon of choice is the greatsword! This auto attack is your main source of damage on this class. What is a Branded target you may ask? We'll get to that soon enough.

Chaos Siphon
Rank needed: 1
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Melee
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 8 seconds

Impale your target with your Greatsword to drain life from them. Deals damage and chaorrupts your target's defenses, increasing the damage they take by 8% for 15 seconds, stacks to 5. 
One of your sources of healing on the class, with an added defense debuff to really leave an impact on your opponent!

Flux
Rank needed: 2
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: InfiniteMana Cost: 50Cooldown: 8 seconds

Chaos manifests itself, dealing damage while randomly reducing your target's Dodge, Crit Chance, Hit Chance, Haste, and outgoing damage. Each debuff reduces its respective stat by 30% for 15 seconds. Can’t miss and always crits.

It wouldn't be Chaos without a bit of randomness. The activation chance for each debuff is as follows:

  • Evasion Chaorrupted - (100% Chance) 
  • Crit Chance Chaorrupted - (70% Chance) 
  • Accuracy Chaorrupted - (50% Chance) 
  • Damage Chaorrupted - (40% Chance) 
  • Haste Chaorrupted - (30% Chance)

Chaos Bulwark
Rank needed: 3
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Melee
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 8 seconds

Chaorrupt the raw energy around you and release a portion of it at your target, dealing damage while absorbing the remainder into your armor. Applies a stack of Chaotic Armor, reducing the damage you take by 30%, plus 5% for each additional stack (up to 55% total), and a stack of Chaotic Regeneration, which heals you over time and stacks to 5. Both effects last 15 seconds.

A very defense based skill. Not only does this skill contain your second source of healing, it also contains a hefty defense buff to yourself. The bulk of the buff is applied on the skill's initial use, but you'll have to use it a few more times if you want to get the full effect!

Fury Unleashed
Rank needed: 5
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Range: Infinite
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 35 seconds

Deals damage and channels your fury into your greatsword, increasing your outgoing damage by 50%. Also increases your Haste by 5%, plus an additional 5% for each stack of Ravaged your target has (up to 45% total) for 15 seconds. 

The longer your battles last, the stronger the Haste buff on this skill becomes. A flat 50% increase to your outgoing damage isn't too bad to have either!

Passives:

Brand of Chaos
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Starting at rank 1, all skills (except Chaos Greatsword) Brand your target. Whenever your Chaos Greatsword strikes a Branded target, the Brand is consumed to deal double damage to them and apply Ravaged, which stacks to 8 and is used for Fury Unleashed.

This is the passive that ties the class together. Each time you use a skill, your next auto attack will be empowered to deal DOUBLE the damage. The timing for doing this is quite forgiving, but there may be times where you'll have to decide on which skill to use next.

Unending Rage 
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Strength increased by 50%, but INT reduced to 0.

Death Defiant
Rank needed: 10
Type: Passive
Physical Damage taken reduced by 35% and Endurance increased by 200%.

Conclusion

The Chaos Avenger has harnessed a power that only one other has wielded before it. With its powerful attacks, great survivability stats, and crippling debuffs, the class is able to take on the toughest of bosses. So unsheath your greatsword, and show your opponents the true power of Chaos!
