Review, runes and strategy

Long long time ago.. when rakans and arnolds ruled the sky arena, a poor Dark Knight belonged to their shadows. Fools fooded him to his brothers, and repent for years.. but now Dias is back, to rule over The raid!
Ok now be serious.

Dias the Dark Knight is a must have for raid, we won't cover any other utility in this chapter because they're marginal.
First of all his leader skill (+30% resistance) is very rare (see Praha or Tesarion) and if combined with the heal block on first skill and his passive that reduce the damage on other allies by 15% he can replace two of the most common unit in Rift of Worlds, Darion (Light Vagabond) and Briand (Wind Death Knight).
His passive is superior than darion's one because of the percentage of the damage reduced plus the critical hit protection (50%) on himself.

So say goodbye to Darion and join the darkness :)

Tested in R4 and R5 with a Guard/Endure build DEF/HP/DEF. He´s awesome as really makes the team much more stable because of his passive. I can now use Perna in the backline thanks to him. However, Passive can be nullified by the boss so you must have very high resistance on him and one fast violent cleanser in the team, better if you can have two as the 15% damage reduction is capital so you cant risk Dias to be in oblivion state. Thanks Com2Us for gifting us this nice monster in the HoH event :)
