Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms – Champions That Get Stronger Over Time

Guide to Champions That Get Stronger

This guide is meant to be a quick reference to which champions grow stronger over time, both permanently (1st section) and during a single adventure/run (2nd section). It is not an in‐depth reference on how they work or how to farm any of their stacks or which champions are better than others.

In a few cases there may be hints to keep in mind when planning a run or putting them in, but generally this relies on the reader already being familiar with the champion and their abilities/kit.
