Champion Stats

Starmoon Casket

Esmeralda manipulates Stardust and Frostmoon. Each of her Basic Attack and skills deal damage twice – Stardust dealing Physical Damage and Frostmoon dealing Magic Damage and giving the target a shield equal to 135% of Frostmoon’s damage dealt.

Damage dealt by Esmeralda ignores all shield effects and transforms her shield into her health at the same time.

Frostmoon Shield

Esmeralda generates a shield for herself and increases her movement speed by 40% for 5 seconds. She gradually transforms shields of her nearby enemies into her own shield.

Stardust Dance

Esmeralda waves Stardust and Frostmoon, dealing Physical Damage and Magic Damage to nearby enemies. Dealing damage to enemies reduces the cooldown of Frostmoon Shield by 1 second.

Falling Starmoon

Esmeralda coheres the power of Astrospace into her two weapons, Stardust and Frostmoon. The longer the duration lasts, the greater the power will be.

Use again to cast the Stardust to the designated location, dealing Physical Damage. Then Esmeralda moves to the designated location to cast Frostmoon, dealing Magic Damage and immobilizing enemies in the area for 1.2 seconds.

Tips & Tricks

Esmeralda manipulates shields and packs a hybrid punch with her moves dealing Physical and Magical damage, making her hard for teams to entirely deal with if she gets fed and out of hand early.

As a hero who gives her enemies shields, Esmeralda needs to coordinate with her team and have awareness of the proper times to engage so as to not accidentally save an enemy’s life by popping in and giving them a shield!

Because of her ability to ignore shields with her damage and drain enemy shields into her own health, Esmeralda excels at dueling enemies and winning sustained fights. Her nature as a tank can allow her to initiate with her team or split push objectives, forcing enemies to come and stop her and allowing her to duel them and draw pressure off other areas of the map where her team can push uncontested.


As a hybrid mage and tank, Esmeralda builds both offensively and defensively with a mix of magic and tank items. 

Magic Shoes give her cooldown reduction, allowing her to pull off her skills more frequently in drawn out fights, giving her the edge to win and manipulate shields more frequently.

Items like Calamity Reaper and Feather of Heaven are also core for Esmeralda, allowing her to enhance her basic attacks, applying more Magic Damage with them (which in return will grant her an even larger shield to siphon from her opponents.)

Defensive items like Oracle and Queen’s Wings beef Esmeralda up, increasing both her shield absorptions and defenses, making it hard for enemies to take her down as she constantly regenerates both her own health and shields.


Esmeralda’s abilities give her the best of both worlds, allowing her the poke of a mage character with the durability and charge powers of a tank.

Use the wide range of Stardust Dance to enemies to reduce your own Frostmoon Shield cooldown and get off some harass. 

Frostmoon Shield can be used before going in, taking burst damage, as well as during long drawn out duels thanks to Stardust Dance’s cooldown reducer.  Use it to siphon shields from your enemies and give yourself a beefy shield, perfect for keeping enemies struggling to whittle your health bar down.

Esmeralda’s ultimate ability, Falling Starmoon, allows her some burst damage and mobility. Charge it up before engaging to launch in and immobilize enemies. Use this when engaging with your team, getting off some powerful crowd control and then weaving your Stardust Dance and Frostmoon Shields to continue to harass enemies and tank damage while your teammates follow up and add damage of their own.


Esmeralda benefits most from the Mage emblem page, with upgrades in Agility and Observation giving her increased Movement Speed and Magic Penetration.

Mystery Shop is a viable talent for all mages, allowing them to get their items for cheaper, helping create power spike advantages even earlier.
