Bellenus the Fire Druid is a great nat-5 monster in Summoners War. Like other druid relies on self tranformation beetween Druid and Beast Form that can be made by using second and third skill.

I tested several build on him, the best i found is IMO Despair/nemesis in Spd/hp/hp or Spd/HP/Def (depend of your substats).
This monster got 2 AOE what make despair pretty relevant.
Why nemesis? because of the taunt , when Bellenus Skill 3 in human form, his passiv make him get +20% ATB and 30% AOE taunt. what make nemesis relevant too.
Bellenus is a nice monster, but very difficult to rune properly.
First of all, even when there are lots of Bellenus with Violent runes, I really think that with 2AoE attacks and a built-in 50% Revenge, DESPAIR is the set that makes him shine. Then you can go Will or Nemesis or Focus or even Fight/Enhance/Accuracy in the secondary set.
Once we have the Despair choice, we have to make the most difficult decission: Attack or HP?
After the balance patch released in v4.2.5, Bellenus seems to have gained some damage output, specially while in beast form, however, after some tests with full ATK and mixed sets, I really don´t think ant DD build is worth it. Because if you just focus on Damage, you will have quite a squishy monster and in my humble oppinion he´s more reliable and effective as a support unit.
The funny and stupid fact is that Bellenus is an DEF based monster with ATK scaling damage (Com2Us IQ 200+) so that makes him hard to build as a nuker. So the obvious option with AoE attacks and very nice debuffs is building him as a tanky support for other units, so I finally went SPD/HP/HP and I really think he´s much much better in this role, both PVP and PVE. The fact is that as far as I can remember only Helena (fire Unicorn) has also an AoE Def Break attack among the fire monsters, so this Druid is a diamond if you can use him in the right way.
Fast, Despair and with enough sustain to survive, he can be a great ally in nearly every scenario. In PVE he can easily be a game changer in Labyrinth and a good unit in toa/toah. In PVP I mainly use him in a team of fire tanks, specially to easily harrass the double-Lushen defenses, but given enough speed he can be suitable for RTA too, althoug I still think Rica is much better than him in that scenario.
Bellenus is definitely not as famous as the wind druid, but he´s for sure a great unit you don´t have to understimate in the battlefield.
Just Despair /Guard or Nemesis.
guard is good ?
