+ 4
Jump To

Razor is a kid that was abandoned as an infant and raised by the Wolf of the North, Andrius, and his wolf pack in Wolvendom. After an encounter with Varka, the Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius, he has slowly started integrating with other humans again. On the battlefield, he’s a great DPS unit, with the potential to focus on either Electro or Physical approaches.

Razor is obtainable by spending wishes in the Wanderlust Invocation standard banner. Good luck obtaining him!

Character Overview, Skills, and Talents

Razor excels as either Physical or Electro DPS. He hits really hard with the greatsword and has a pool of good Electro abilities that make him a great Main DPS, but sadly lock him into that role since he doesn’t have any persisting skill that can play with others.

Normal Attack - Steel Fang

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes.

Charged Attack
Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous swirling attacks against all nearby enemies.
At end of the sequence, perform a more powerful slash.

Plunging Attack
Descends from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE damage upon landing.


Elemental Skill - Claw and Thunder

Razor hunts his prey using the techniques taught to him by his master and his Lupical.
Swings the Thunder Wolf Claw, dealing Electro damage to enemies in front of Razor.
Upon striking an enemy, Razor will gain an Electro Sigil, which increases his Energy Recharge rate.
Razor can have up to 3 Electro Sigils simultaneously, and gaining a new Electro Sigil refreshes their duration.
Gathers Electro energy to unleash a lightning storm over a small AoE, causing massive Electro damage, and clears all of Razor's Electro Sigils. Each Electro Sigil cleared in this manner will be converted into Energy for Razor.

Elemental Burst - Lightning Fang

Summons the Wolf Within which deals Electro damage to all nearby opponents. This clears all of Razor's Electro Sigils, which will be converted into elemental energy for him. The Wolf Within will fight alongside Razor for the skill's duration.

The Wolf Within
-Strikes alongside Razor's normal attacks, dealing Electro damage.
-Raises Razor's Attack Speed and Electro Resistance.
-Causes Razor to be immune to damage inflicted by the Electro-Charged status.

Example Builds for Razor

Physical DPS
Weapon - Wolf's Gravestone or Prototype Archaic
While Wolf’s Gravestone is the perfect choice for this build, it is also a difficult weapon to obtain, so as a great alternative you can craft Prototype Archaic.

Artifacts - Pale Flame
This Artifact set is the best choice for every single Physical DPS build, and this is no exception. If you can’t complete the set yet, though, you can always use Bloodstained Chivalry as an alternative.
