Review, runes and strategy

Ran (Dark Rakshasa) is a great attack monster in Summoners War, featured in the Hall of Heroes of 8th July 2016. She is very useful in PvE as a dot-stacker, in Necropolis B10 and in Arena Attack.

Is very important to speed her to scale up the first skill, also we suggest to team her in Arena with someone who keeps enemies attack bar low like Baretta (Sylph Fire) or Hwa (Rakshasa Fire) to maximize the stun effect of her third skill.

Ran rune build

All games: Violent/Revenge - SPD / %Crit damage / %ATT or SPD / %HP / %HP with accuracy substats.

Speedy build: Swift/Revenge - SPD / %Crit damage / %ATT

Nice attack unit, she´s my NB10 Leader, and as I only use her in the Necro dungeon, her SPD is not tuned because of the boss cap. Instead of SPD she uses a standard nuker build Violent+Blade ATK/CrDam/ATK. I´d like to use Revenge runes instead of blade but at the moment I cant match the stats with Revenge. She´s really deadly with any skill, but the slow buff in the first and the Leader Skill are her best points IMO.

Review update: I´ve recently tested her in TOA/TOAH with great success.

In TOA I´ve used her to defeat Ath´taros. S1 and S3 are quite usefull vs the boss, and S2 against the towers, so overall, this Rakshasais 100% efective against the boss. Also the leader skill may help.

In TOAH I´ve tested her in a new CC strategy vs the level bosses. Specificly she has been tested vs Woonsa (TOAH60 this month), the dark Pioneer that has enough power with his 3rd skill to ravage my entire team. The point was using enough ATB defuffers to keep the boss without attacking and I got it using Baretta, Ran and Charlotte. Both the Rakshassa and the occult girl are not yet full skilled, so it would have been even easier with the colldowns. I can swear the boss didn´t had a single turn to attack and was killed without performing any other action than watching his own destruction XD.
For any interested, the whole team was: Baretta (L), Sonnet, Ran, Charlotte and Woosa.
