Hall of Trials: Zeno

Updated: Jun 13



How to Defeat Zeno?

  • Apply as many debuffs as possible

  • Use as little non-Attack Skill as possible and avoid using Fire Heroes

  • Clear Minions as fast as possible because they apply "Decrease Hit Chance" debuffs




Key Skills


Apply as many debuffs as possible


Due to "Identify Weakness", whenever Zeno doesn't have at least 2 debuffs on him, he will gain Combat Readiness when attacked. It is also important to note that he dispels one debuff everytime he ends a turn. So it is important to apply as m any debuffs as possible to stop him from taking too many turns and doing damage.


The best heroes are heroes that can apply 2 or more debuffs with a single attack, for example Irelia, Sigret and many Ranger heroes that can use Song of Stars.



Use as little non-Attack Skill as possible and avoid using Fire Heroes


Evasion is the other annoying mechanics for Zeno. Whenever he evades, he gains skill nullifier due to "Star's Counterattack".


Also whenever we use a Non-Attack Skill, Zeno will gain increased evasion chance and Defense. So we will want to try to minimize as much non-attack skill as possible. Preferably bring healers that can heal or cleanse when they attack.


This also means that we should avoid bringing Fire Element Heroes because they have Elemental disadvantage which could cause them to miss their attack.


Clear Minions as fast as possible because they apply "Decrease Hit Chance" debuffs


Because of the evasion mechanics, Decrease Hit Chance could hinder our damage output. These minions also deal a lot of damage because they gain stackable increase attack when Zeno takes turns.


We need to make sure we bring enough AOE damage to clear these minions as fast as possible.
