Early Skills Primary
・Unseen Fate
・Night Terror
・Lightning Fist
・Paralyzing Bite
・Heroic Takedown Mastery
・Invisible Stun

Major Artifacts ・Ring of the Nibelung

This build revolves around maintaining the Invisibility status on Black Widow to land hits freely and perform takedowns as much as possible as they restore health, has long invincibility frames (or i-frames), and Heroic Orbs if you already have the Heroic Takedown Mastery.

Black Widow Best Attributes

Might Increases melee damage
Valor Increases critical damage
Proficiency Increases critical chance
Intensity Increases stun damage

You'll want to increase Might as high as you can to dish out tons of damage to enemies especially against bosses that cannot be stunned. Valor and Proficiency help boost your maximum damage output.

Intensity is somehow optional since you'll already have more than enough Stun damage from the skill upgrades listed below.

Gear Stats Explained

Black Widow Best Gear Perks

Gear Perk Effect
Tactical Impulse x% increased stun damage while Overcharged.
Heavyweight Quake x% increased stun damage from Heavy Combo finishers.
Heroic Assistance Increases charge rate of Heroic Support ability by x%.

You'll want to aim for higher stun damage to quickly cripple enemies for takedowns. Look for a gear with Heroic Assistance if you're having a hard time picking up heroic orbs to charge your Heroic Support ability.

Black Widow Usage Guide

Black Widow Best Major Artifacts

Ring of the Nibelung

This artifact has the perfect gear perks for Black Widow as it can make her permanently invisible.

Its increase on the restored amount from all orbs can be utilized by performing a lot of takedowns with the Heroic Takedown Mastery. This will quickly fill the Support Heroic Ability and cast it again before the previous Invisibility buff expires. If you are in dire need of heroic orbs, you can use its Cornucopia gear perk to spawn orbs instantly.

You can get this exotic artifact by completing the Iconic Avengers mission chain which is unlocked upon reaching Step 7 of Reigning Supreme mission chain.


This artifact has almost the same use for Black Widow as the Ring of Nibelung, which is keeping her permanently invisible. With Eldritch Invigoration, you can instantly drain your health to critical level to completely fill your Heroic meters and immediately use Veil of Shadows.

You can then stun enemies and perform takedowns to generate Regen Packs so you can drain your health bar again in exchange for full Heroic Meters.
