Review, runes and strategy

Shumar (Dark Hellhound) is a good attack monster in Summoners War.

His main feature is his high base speed and his passive skill that increases the attack speed by 15 and also increses it by a value that's proportionate to Shumar's missing health (up to 113 at 0HP, so basically add 1 speed for each 1% of HP lost).

Shumar can do tremendous damage if he has great amount of speed by runes, that means that the best option is to put on him a Swift set.

Shumar is good to use against Light Raid Boss and other PvE bosses, or as a nuker in PvP, but you have to use a good composition to make him nuke somebody on the opponent team.

However he has very low base HP and that makes him very squishy and almost unreliable to use if you don't have a good team to support him.

On the other hand he can be quite useful as an attack monster in the Siege Battle if you use him on the assault against enemy's 4star-max bases.

Depends on your runes. I´ve seen him in action only as I leveled mine in Faimon, and he can deal tons of damage. If you have good speed leader and a fast def breakersyou can develop Shumar as a Speed nuker and he will do the job. There are other speed based nukers like Stella, the water Assassin that can perform better, but this one will get the job done. Just give him a decent Swift/Blade set and test him in Faimon. You will see by yourself the damage output.

As a clue, he´s much better in my oppinion than the dark Inugami.
