Looking for a build guide for Vildred in Epic Seven? Follow along as we introduce you to this character and cover every significant aspect of his build.

If you’re looking to speed-farm the game like nothing – Vildred might just be your best bet. Once this earth thief is geared, there’s little that can really get in his way!

One of the biggest things that enables his powerhouse play-style is the combination of on-kill passive, resets, and AoE skills that make up a huge part of his overall ability kit. In turn, this makes him a good pick for cleave PvP as well as one of the best choices for fooder farming and PvE hunts.

Vildred Epic Seven Build Guide

Unlike some characters, Vildred Epic Seven is built exactly the same between PvP and PvE. Below, we’ll cover how to build Vildred the most efficient way in Epic Seven.

The Best Gear For Vildred

When it comes to the choice of sets and gear for this character, you’ve got one of two choices to pick from, depending on the content and play-style you prefer.

Speed-Focused

In this instance, you’ll want to go with a Speed & Crit set. Combine this with a necklace that offers Critical Hit Damage, a ring that increases your Attack, and boots that boost your Attack as well.

Damage-Focused

If you’re comfortable with the speed you’re at – you can go with an Attack & Crit set. This should be combined with the same setup for your necklace, ring, and boots as in the speed-focused setup.

His Skill Combo

One of the things that make Vildred a really cool character (even for Epic Seven being one of the best mobile RPGs on iOS and Android) is the fact that both his S1 and S2 are AoE attacks that activate his passive, which offers him an additional AoE attack and a buff to his Attack rating.

This allows him to one-hit entire mob packs at higher levels, once he’s fully geared. You’ll really only ever need to activate your S1 attack. It hits two enemies, buffs your Attack and CR (Combat Readiness) by 20%, and if they die (which they will), you’ll activate your passive for another massively buffed AoE attack that kills everything else.

On the other hand, his S3 is another nifty AoE that functions like his S1 with the exception that it focuses on all the enemies around and works with Soul Burn.

Skill Enhancement Order

In most cases, you’ll want to max his S3 to +5, followed by Vildred’s S1, and lastly, his S2.

Recommended Artifacts For Vildred

For farming, generally speaking, you’ll want to roll an Exorcist’s Tonfa. The reason behind this pick is the fact that it offers a tonne of damage while increasing your damage by up to 16% when the target enemy has over 50% HP.

At the same time, Dust Devil is another viable choice for Vildred’s artifact. Overall, it has much higher base stats than the Exorcist’s Tonfa. However, it’s focused on a chain of attacks on enemies that survive your initial assault – which just doesn’t happen if you go with the tonfa, since you’ll be one-shotting everything for the most part.

What Stats Does Vildred Focus On?

Gearing up Vildred is pretty simple. However, like other characters, he definitely benefits way more from some stats than others. In his case – the majority of his kit revolves around Attack and Speed.

His Stat Priority

Attack, Critical Hit Chance (Rate), Critical Hit Damage, Speed

What Materials & Resources Will You Need?

To max out Vildred, you’ll need to farm up a number of resources.

Here’s a quick list:

  • MolaGora – 33
  • Twisted Fang – 36
  • Blazing Soul – 6
  • Gold – 528K

Should You Play Vildred?

When you’re looking at picking up a new character in Epic Seven – as always, you’ve got to weigh the pros and cons of funneling your time into this new unit before you really commit to the idea.

Below, we’ll cover the upsides and downsides to leveling up Vildred, and then give you a hint of what sort of content he’s a good pick for.

The Pros

  • Vildred is the best character to speed-farm and fooder-farm with late game.
  • He’s one of the best duos with Yuna thanks to the attack strength and attack speed buff synergy.
  • His kit offers plenty of AoE damage and a self-buff making him a fantastic pick for PvP and PvE.
  • Great versatile ability kit that leverages attack strength and attack speed along with kill resets for huge damage output.

The Cons

  • Vildred lacks proper single-target damage.
  • Suffers from a slight elemental disadvantage.
  • His kit doesn’t feature any utility skills or debuffs that he can apply.

What Is Vildred Good For?

First and foremost, Vildred’s AoE-heavy kit makes him an amazing speed-farmer when it comes to PvE. And when I say amazing what I really mean is STELLAR!

However, while many characters are heavy in one area only to fall off in the other – Vildred is also quite exceptional in cleave-team PvP. 

This makes him a pretty good overall pick. And when you factor in his Speed Imprint (his damage also scales with speed), and his self-buffing abilities – you’ve got quite the powerhouse on your hands.

Vildred In PvE Content

When it comes to Player vs. Environment (PvE) in Epic Seven, Vildred is one of the top tier choices for just about any avenue of content.

Speed & Fooder-Farming

Thanks to his AoE-centric ability kit and relatively simple build, he’s one of the best farmers in the game. 

Not to mention the fact that you can farm solo with no supports, only including 3 fooders in his party. Even with this “slim” setup, he’s still going to be one-hitting most mob packs if you gear him right.

Boss Hunts

Whether you’re planning to camp Banshee, Azimanak, or Golem – Vildred should definitely be a part of your party.

First and foremost, due to this insanely high speed, he can actually one-shot the Banshee 11 encounter. In addition to this, his aptitude for cleaving will help you clear the first few waves at Golem as well as shred other bosses down much quicker.

However, he does struggle a lot at one particular boss encounter – Wyvern 11 due to the fact that the boss is especially bad for Earth characters (which he is one of).

Raids & Abyss

Since Vildred doesn’t really offer much in the debuff department, nor does he put out a whole lot of single target damage – Raids and the Abyss aren’t the best content to bring him to.

But if you’ve got nothing better, he’s still relatively viable in Arahakan (normal and hell), Julevee (normal and hell), and Vera (normal).

His Aptitude For PvP Content In Epic Seven

As the only 5-star character in the game with a native Speed imprint, Vildred is quite valuable in PvP. His full imprint release will buff allies with a +12 to Speed, which is massive and can be a total game-changer.

Add this to the fact that he’s also one of the best cleavers in-game, and you’ve got quite an insane setup if you bring in the right synergies, such as Judith, S. Rose, Cidd, and Yuna, among others. Roozid SC is also viable here thanks to the fact that if you mix Vildred with Cidd – they will both offer a lot of speed which scales SC’s damage insanely.

On the other hand, tanky team setups can easily deal with Vildred since he’s not able to activate his on-kill passive and resets. This means he’s going to fall behind quickly due to his lacking single-target. Alternatively, if you need to counter him – you can also rock a Fire character since Vildred being part of the Earth group puts him at an elemental disadvantage.

Closing Thoughts

If you’ve stuck it out until this point in our Vilded Epic Seven build guide – you should now have all the knowledge you need to build a beast of a character.

At the end of the day, he’s one of the strongest PvP and PvE characters in the entire game – named the best “dogwalker” by the Epic Seven player community. He’s got lots to offer with a very AoE-centric kit that relies on Attack and Speed to dish out huge bursts of damage. 

He’s quite easy to build and doesn’t require too many materials to get into the endgame. This makes him an excellent choice for new and experienced players alike.
