Fire Rakshasa (Hwa)

Review, runes and strategy

Hwa (Fire Rakshasa) is one of the best attack monsters in Summoners War.

Hwa is a great single target attacker. She can be fulfill multiple roles at once: she is a continous damage dealer, she can be a nuker and she is attack bar and attack speed reducer.

Hwa's skill setup makes her one of the best monster in Summoners war to use against Bosses: she can be used both in Giant B10 and Dragon B10 provided she has a good support team to help her surviving through the stages of the dungeon.

Hwa is very good also in Arena offence: her role here is to make significant damage while keep reducing speed and attack bar of a significant threat the enemy can have. This is better achieved if your team has also some speed and/or attack bar buffer like Bernard-Wind Griffon and Verdehile-Fire Vampire

Additionally with the introduction of Rift of Worlds, Hwa has gained a special spot in many team compositions of parties even for Raids level 5: she is most appreciated for attack bar and speed weakening effect on first skill and for that purpose she is often runed Revenge.

Since her first skill is Attack speed damage scaling, Swift runes are also a good option.
