Across the Obelisk Ottis Build: Deck & Perks

Ottis is one of the most consistent “healers” in Across the Obelisk, and we put that in quotes because he mainly utilizes shields rather than pure healing. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the best Ottis build in Across the Obelisk, including the deck setup for all acts, talent builds, perks, and items.

If you don’t know how to get this character, check out our guide on how to unlock Ottis in Across the Obelisk.

Best Ottis Talents

The best talents for Ottis are:

  1. Shielder – Heals for 30% of the total “Shield” amount (does not gain bonuses).
  2. Unwavering Faith – Applies +5 Shield charges to Ottis, and when you apply Shield to anyone, you also apply 2 Courage and 1 Vitality (lasts one turn).
  3. Defense Mastery – Defense cards in your hand at the beginning of the turn cost one less Energy.
  4. Double Bubble – Gives +16 Shield and puts a copy of the next Defense card you play into your hand (0 Cost, Vanish).
  5. Dome of Light – When you play a Defense card, apply 6 Shield to all heroes.

Best Ottis Decks

For this Ottis deck, we remove all the Holy damage spells and focus entirely on shield and support skills to keep the team alive. It’s best to focus on upgrading cards to reduce their Energy cost, but your mileage may vary depending on how many shards you have on hand. In the late game, applying Vitality and Bless will be of the utmost importance.
