Mal'Damba is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

When Wekono, the Mother of Sorrow and Revenge, turns her gaze to the mortal world, she appoints a champion. In this cycle, the island witchdoctor Mal'Damba has been gifted with her powers and sent into the war to evangelize her faith by laying waste to any who would stand before him.

His mastery of dark magic and virulent poisons was already impressive before the insidious goddess imbued him with even greater abilities, rendering him one of the deadliest beings in the Realm, an extension of Wekono's will.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Mal'Damba is a great healer with constant presence in the form of CC (Crowd Control) and constant Healing. His Spitting Cobra fires globs of venom that deal damage to enemies. Upon reloading, he tosses his cobra, stunning anyone it hits. Mending Spirits allows him to quickly heal a single ally for a short period of time. Gourd allows him to heal allies and damage enemies within its area of effect. Slither allows him to traverse a short distance while gaining immunity to damage for a short period of time, allowing him to slip out of dangerous situations. His ultimate, Dread Serpent, causes him to fire a dark vessel that explodes, fearing all enemies caught in the blast, making it very effective in shutting down enemy players. But Mal'Damba is a high skill cap character that needs to be mastered. If not used correctly he can be shut down very easily.
