Angel of Pain is amazing. With Supremacy and +2 DMG upgraded, she hits ground units for 15 DMG pre-Intensify and 17 post. 17 DMG at 6 range, wonder where we've seen that kind of damage in UD? Oh right, Grimlic . In addition, Angel gives UD much-needed champ Magical damage (the only other viable source being Nefari Messenger) and a Flying champ all for under 100 Nora. She is a gem, and if you have her you should run her no questions asked.





When Angel of Pain was first released in the Ancient Awakenings midterm release, she was declared OP from the start. At the time, UD champs received a straight +5 DMG for the faction bonus, so Angel of Pain was attacking for 14 DMG pre-Intensify, as well as costing 87 Nora for a cheap 6 (9) SPD build back when champions nora costs were affected by the upgrades chosen.

When the devs changed UD's range bonus from +5 DMG to +2 DMG, UD Moderator Sepulcher brought up to them that Angel of Pain would actually lose 1 DMG when she Intensified. He thought the devs would buff Angel of Pain or change her range, because at the time she was rarely run thanks to a Week 1 change, but the devs instead weakened her again. She was never run again until the revamp.
