Sha Lin is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Tales of the legendary adventurer Sha Lin have spread far and wide across the Realm, recounting his heroic exploits and death-defying antics. During his short lifetime, he's already helped topple warlords, recovered long-lost artifacts, and betrayed the infamous Thousand Hands guild.

He's broken as many hearts with his magical longbow as he has with his silver tongue, but even he has a stake in the current conflict between the Magistrate and the Resistance, standing up to the oppressive Magistrate on behalf of the common folk.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Sha Lin is a damage champion and an oppressive ranged attacker, who fires high damage arrows, dealing more damage the longer they are charged. Their Impaler Arrow allows him to knock enemies away, stunning them if they are thrown into a wall. Planted allows Sha Lin to fire many arrows in a short burst but forces him to stand still, leaving him vulnerable. Withdraw (which lets him backflip away) and his Ultimate skill, Heat Haze, both make Sha Lin grant him stealth, making him invisible, making him harder to track down and allowing him to slip away when under fire. However, he is very reliant on his skills and will be easily taken out while on cooldown. Player awareness and anti stealth effects are also a harsh counter against him.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Long Bow

Direct Damage

A long bow that draws back an arrow and releases it for up to 1000 damage every 1.5s.

Ability Placeholder LMB.png

Details

  • Both damage and range are based on how long the arrow is drawn.
  • Does not have ammo and has no reload.
  • Lowers Sha Lin's movement speed by 10% while it is drawn.
  • Has reduced accuracy while airborne.

Impaler Arrow

Direct Damage

Replace your arrow with an Impaler Arrow that knocks enemies back and stuns them for 1s if they hit a wall.

Ability Placeholder RMB.png
Cooldown Icon White.png 8

Details

  • It is fired just like regular arrows, deals the same damage based on how long is drawn and applies on-hit effects.
  • Can be used with drawn Long Bow without having to re-draw it.
  • Can be toggled off by re-activating the skill without incurring a cooldown.
  • Can be used while Heat Haze is active.

Planted

Direct Damage

Plant yourself in place, becoming stationary for 3s. While planted, your Long Bow draw time is 200% faster. Re-activating Planted cancels the skill. Acts as a weapon attack.

Ability Placeholder Q.png

Details

  • Sha Lin automatically fires a total of 6 shots for 800 damage each over the duration.
  • There is a 0.6s delay before the shots start to be fired.
  • Has reduced accuracy while airborne.
  • Cancels Impaler Arrow if it is active.

Withdraw

 

Leap backwards and enter stealth for 2s.

Ability Placeholder F.png
Cooldown Icon White.png 15

Details

  • Can be used while Heat Haze is active.
  • Can be used with drawn Long Bow without having to re-draw it.
  • Won't go into cooldown until the stealth effect ends.

Heat Haze (Ultimate)

 

Enter stealth and gain 30% Movement Speed for 8s. While active, you draw your bow 50% faster and reveal yourself each time you fire.

Ability Placeholder E.png

Details

  • Attacking does not break the stealth effect.
  • Can be used with drawn Long Bow without having to re-draw it.

Talents[edit | edit source]
