Arena of Valor Wiki

Cresht, The Mermidon, is one of the Arena of Valor heroes, classified as a tank and a support. Mostly played at the support role, he has exceptional tankiness and high burst damage. His ultimate Metamorphosis is a game-changing engager. With his gigantic health pool and mobility with his Aquatic shield, he can facecheck to take vision and remain unscathed. His rage-based ultimate makes him a terrifying presence on the map, but only when he is able to cast is ultimate. He is also great at peeling his allies with both Typhoon and Aquatic shield.

"Strength or death!"

Cresht, the Mermidon, frequently talked of the Boiling Sea from which he came from. However, when dealing with Cresht, one would do well to remember that this sea was not called so because of its temperature, but because of the constant chaos beneath its waters, and that he remained at the top of its food chain.

Ancient records didn't contain much detail regarding Cresht's origins. The only relevant knowledge that man was able to garner came from a bard's song: "A monstrosity rising from the sea's hungry depths; its trident so terrible it brings naught but death."

In the War of Man and Beast, Cresht fought fearlessly on the front lines, endlessly tormenting the humans. Surprisingly, Cresht didn't return to the Boiling Sea after the war. Instead, he took it upon himself to pursue higher goals than just devouring the frail and weak.

"A battle between Gods and Demons must include Cresht!"
