Royal Crown: Violet Guide

Welcome to this Violet guide, I will do my best to guide New to Intermediate players of this game. You can use this guide to better your play, or learn something new if you already know everything that I am about to list here.
(PS: This guide is for general gameplay, both useful in Solo and Squads.)

BEFORE YOU PROCEED

THIS GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE BASIC GAMEPLAY MECHANICS. IT ASSUMES THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW MOST OF THE ACTIONS AVAILABLE IN THE GAME.

 

About

Anyways before you move on, I just want to make this guide because I had spare time. You can freely skip this if you do not care about my background about Violet.

I use Violet a lot, REALLY REALLY A LOT.


(as of July 25th, 2020)

K lets move on to the thing you came here for.

Violet Abilities

The first thing to learn about Violet is how her Abilities work.

NOTE: I will not cover really basic descriptions that are already available in the game. Instead I’ll give you the practical use for each ability.

Sharpen Blade(PASSIVE)

Basically REDUCES your First Ability’s Cooldown by 1s everytime you do a basic attack. The faster your attack speed is, the more likely you are going to spam this next ability I am about to explain in a moment.

Blade Fan

It fires in a 3 way cone-like shaped area which covers a decent distance, it also SLOWS THE ENEMY WHO GOT HIT BY IT., you mainly use this as your MAIN DAMAGE TOOL as it does a lot of damage when you have runes, attribute cards and equipment.

NOTE: IT ALSO GOES BACK TOWARDS YOU MAKING IT HIT TWICE

Tow Hook

Shoots a hook and stuns anyone that goes within range of it, It is a good initiation tool afar and it is also useful for chasing down enemies who are running away, it also increases attack speed for a few seconds after casting. (synergizes with her first ability)

you might ask, how is it useful for chasing enemies?

You see, if you hit a wall/terrain anything that a player cannot pass on
i.e: Fences/Houses/Rocks.

You are able to RECAST this ability in the next 5s after the first hook has been casted, else it goes into a lengthy cooldown.

Spectral Fog

Violet literally goes Invisible for 1s(if lvl1) or 1.5s(if maxed) to everyone but her teammates, evades some attacks and makes her move slightly faster, although there’s only one thing to note about this ability.
IT LITERALLY LEAVES A TRAIL OF VIOLET UPON CASTING

I’ll leave you to experiment with this ability with that thought in mind.

Shadow Clone

bruh kagebunshin no jutsu. Jokes aside this one clone attacks with 70% of your physical attack, lasts for 5s and slows them too, it chases the nearest person to attack and will do so until it subsides.
NOTE: YOUR EQUIPMENT SCALES WITH YOUR ULTIMATE

Use it sparingly, such as when you want to secure a squad kill, in an inevitable teamfight, and at times dragon kills.

Practical Ability use

In this section, I’ll be giving some general guidelines on when to use abilities.


– Farming (killing mobs)
– Dealing Damage to multiple enemies
– Slowing them
– Zoning
– Harass


– Chase/Escape
– Stun
– Movement Efficiency (for gathering)


– Evading attacks
– Escape/Chase
– Movement Efficiency (for gathering)
– Tricking enemies (I’ll cover this in the “Tips & Tricks” Section)


– Teamfights
– Dodging (it propels you backwards)
– Distraction
– Damage
– Dragon (if desperate for a fast kill/really under geared and need more DPS)

General Strategy/Equipment

You generally do not want to fight very early.

For Context, a level 1 Morgan can easily beat a level 1 Violet on a head on battle.

Try to get a higher rarity of these items if you can

Bloody Gloves

OR Any item that has the word “Bloody” in it because of lifesteal. (currently only Bloody Dagger & Bloody Gloves.)

All of Violet’s abilities synergizes with this item, unless you can’t find one, then one of these should work too. (at least for gloves)

Hunter’s Gloves

Increases Attack Speed. (There’s also the armor sets of these with the same name i.e Hunter’s Armor, which essentially does the same thing and provides more protection unlike gloves.)

Sniper’s Gloves

Increases Critical Rate. (There’s also an armor set in this path.)

You definitely want to get the set as much as possible, either a mix of Sniper’s and Hunter’s gear or a pure one depending on what you get.

Accessories

Jagged Accessory

The only Accessory you want and need, anything else is just decent because it occupies a slot.

Violet’s Go To Weapons

I’ll start with the Dragon Weapons first.

Emission Dagger

For “Shock” debuff to increase DPS upon basic attack.

Icy Blade

Huge slow debuff upon basic attack.

Blackiron Hammer

Increases your movement speed and decreases enemy’s defense upon basic attack.

The Alright Weapons

You only come to this point if you are unable to get the dragon because of the zone or any reason you couldn’t use these instead, its the next best thing.

Crescent Blade

Huge Attack Speed boost on high rarities

Split Axe

Huge Crit boost on high rarities

B-b-but, I Can’t Find ANY OF THESE!?!?!?

Hold your horses, you can still use the other weapons that grant Physical attack, although if you run into weapons early game (such as a staff), its still good because you need equipment to fit “Runes” in, which I will cover in the next section right now.

Runes

All three of these are viable for any Violet build.

Power Rune

Increase Physical Attack

Death Rune

Increase Critical Rate

Speed Rune

Increase Attack Speed

You can mix these in any way you want, although I recommend going for this

3x Power Runes
2x Death Runes

Feel free to experiment on training or an actual game to see what suits you more, I just only personally use above.

Attribute Cards

In general for attribute cards, the purple cards are the best ones.

The only way to get it is through a supply crate, and in all of the games i played so far, you usually only get 1 of the 3 purple attribute cards here per game realistically.

Ghoul

Decreases movement speed by and increases physical attack Lifesteal

The Crow

Increases attack and restores up to 10% of max HP upon immobilizing an enemy.

Curse

Decreases a successfully attacked target’s attack power and their healing and regeneration

THE CARDS THAT MATTER EARLY GAME

Burning Passion

Increases attack power for 3s upon landing a basic attack. (Up to 4 stack(s))

Gale

Increases attack speed after landing a basic attack.

Shockwave

Deals additional damage equal to of the player’s physical attack to the target area with the next basic attack after landing 2 basic attacks. (Cooldown: {2} s.)

Corrosion

Decreases the target’s physical defense for 6s upon a successful attack. (Up to 3 stack(s))

Inertia

Increases attack power after using a movement or acceleration skill.

I listed all possible cards that might work with Violet, in case you got contested in Papyrus, or you were too late to loot one. Although if you manage to get your hands on Papyrus I personally go for these 3 in general

B-b-but I DON’T HAVE PAPYRUS/I ONLY HAVE RANDOM CARDS

Tough luck then, although having random cards is better than no cards, try and ambush someone in hopes for the cards that you might need.

Tips and Tricks

In no particular order, some random Violet tips and tricks

– If you run with this

Invisibility Potion

You can Cast Spectral Fog into invisibility potion so that you can hide/buy time so that you can escape OR running away into invisibility potion makes it look that you casted Spectral Fog instead.

– Her ultimate propels her backwards, away from the point where you casted it.

– This item

Stun Trap

After casting Tow Hook you can place it directly on the enemy you just hooked for a guaranteed stun lock.

(That’s all that I can remember/know so far, although feel free to leave some tips in the comments so that i can put it in this guide, I’ll make sure to credit you too.)
