Idle Champion Spotlight: D’hani 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Some monks spend every moment they can honing their combat skills, but this Champion would prefer to paint people over pummeling them!

D’hani is an aarakocra monk who traveled to Waterdeep looking for a more exciting life, and she’s certainly found it with the Rivals of Waterdeep! While she would rather enjoy her artistic pursuits, she also will not hesitate to use every part of her body to swiftly defeat anyone who puts her new friends in danger. She joins the Champions, as well as her fellow Rivals Shaka and Selise, next week during Highharvestide!

Dungeons & Dragons D'hani LaTia

    Moving to Waterdeep provided D’hani with more of the opportunities she was searching for after living in Chult. At first, she took a job as a mercenary with the Cassalanter family and tasked with infiltrating and spying on the Rivals. As her familiarity and friendship with the Rivals grew, she preferred to stay with them and continue to help with their adventures. Her skills in combat are impressive, and while she never means to kill anyone, she gets carried away in the thrill of battle where even the most flashy combat maneuvers can be deadly!

D’hani’s love of painting infuses her fighting style with both color and tactics. She becomes more powerful the more her Rivals family is at her side. When you want to add her to your formation, you can swap her with Bruenor (Slot 1)

III. D’hani's Design

We were very excited to have the opportunity to work with LaTia Jacquise, who is the Community Relations Coordinator for Monte Cook Games. She is a prolific writer, developer, and streamer with many years of experience in the TTRPG space, with recent contributions to D&D Beyond, DMs Guild, and the Into the Mother Lands RPG. Along with her work as both a player and DM on Rivals of Waterdeep, LaTia can be seen on a variety of streams and shows, including as a cast member for Tampo and a guest on the Dimension 20 show Adventuring Academy.

With a brush in one hand and her other hand prepared to punch, D’hani is ready to Paint Them Red one way or another! She’ll use every color in the rainbow when on the attack. Her Way of the Brush means each time she gets to practice painting an enemy, her skills grow even more deadly! Put this deadly bird into your formation and she'll take down all of your enemies!

IV. D’hani's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Fists of Fury — D'hani attacks a random painted enemy. If no enemies are painted, D'hani attacks the nearest enemy.

Formation Abilities

  • Paint Them Red — When D'hani attacks she paints the enemy red, and can paint an enemy up to three times. D'hani's damage is increased by 100% for each stroke of paint she applies, stacking additively.
  • Friendly Rivalry — D'hani is more confident when her friends are around, so her damage is increased by 100% for each Rival of Waterdeep in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Way of the Brush — D'hani's damage is increased by 100%, and she keeps track of the total number of enemies she has painted across all time - this count persists between resets. D'hani's practice with layers of paint increases as the total number of painted enemies increases, and at certain milestones she gains another Layer of Way of the Brush, which increases this effect by an additional 100%, stacking multiplicatively. Once D'hani reaches Layer 10, each additional enemy painted increases the buff by 0.03% additively.


  • Splash of Yellow — Enemies D'hani paints also gain a splash of yellow, with a max of 1 application per enemy. Enemies painted in this way drop 200% more gold when they are killed, regardless of who kills them.
  • Stroke of Green — Enemies D'hani paints also gain a stroke of green, with a max of 1 application per enemy. Enemies painted in this way cause D'hani's attacks against them to damage nearby enemies as well at 50% damage. This effect does not chain, but does apply 1 stack of red and a stroke of green to the enemies it damages.
  • Blotch of Blue — Enemies D'hani paints also gain a blotch of blue, with a max of 1 application per enemy. Enemies painted in this way are stunned for 2 seconds when D'hani attacks them and boss enemies painted in this way take 400% more damage from all attacks.

Ultimate Ability

  • Flurry of Brushes — D'hani pulls a quiver of sharpened paintbrushes from her robes and flings them out at 5 random enemies. They deal damage and apply D'hani's paints to all enemies they hit! If multiple brushes hit an enemy, it will gain multiple stacks of red paint if possible.

V. D'hani’s Equipment

Slot 1: Self DPS
Slot 2: Self DPS
Slot 3: Painter’s Smock
Slot 4: Sash
Slot 5: Ultimate Damage
Slot 6: Ultimate Cooldown

VI. Conclusion

We’re thrilled to have another member of Rivals of Waterdeep in our Champion roster and can’t wait to see D’hani painting her way into your formation! If you want to find out more about all the Rivals of Waterdeep you can check out their shows as livestreams or podcasts!
