Tank hero Baxia is a bane to heroes reliant on healing abilities due to his passive, Baxia Mark. It significantly reduces the shield and HP regen of enemies while bolstering his tankiness.

Begin your assault against Rafaela with Baxia-Shield Unity. Once you have narrowed the gap, trigger Tortoise’s Puissance and persistently chase her down.
