Fire Chimera (Rakan)

Review, runes and strategy

Rakan the Fire Chimera is a great natural five monster with a very annoying PvP defense skillset, his main purpose is to stay in Arena Defense as an anti lushen and attack deterrant, if runed Vampire he will survive even without an healer using Unleashed Fury to buff himself (attack and immunity) and spamming Collapse directly and on counterattack when in cooldown, slowly destroying the attacking team and soloing most of double lushen combos and classical AOE nuker teams (ex. AOE Defense Breaker, Attack Buffer, AOE nuker).

Also if runed Vampire + Will he gains permanent immunity, so no need to build speed on him.

His Base HP are high and needs to be more than 20k to be a good tanker and a good nuker (her third skill scales on Max HPs) so runing him HP% and Crit Damage could be a good choice.

His attack is low but you can safely sacrify it for more HP or CR%, also another one stat you need to be interested in is the resistance but it only matters against strippers, and in the end the accuracy to spam the provoke effect on enemies.

Last but not least he is a wonderful Chiruka farmer, so believe us, worth all the devilmons he needs!

As theres no rune review for Rakan, I will just tell you what I know about this monster. An Early build for begginers might be a full ENERGY all %HP. Easy to find runes. Once you can farm Dragons, VIOLENT runes are great for Rakan. A very good build is VIOLENT/BLADE (or Will if you can get enough subs) %HP/Cr Dam/%HP with a decent Cr Rate, about 70% at least. This will allow you to make insane damage with "Collapse" and deadly counterstrikes. Is really fun to sit and watch how an enemy runed with VIOLENT attacks Rakan, then he gets collapsed, then procs again, gets collapsed a second time an dies. Of course, its not so fun when its you the one who attacks. For end game players that can farm godly runes, a VAMPIRE/WILL (%HP/Cr Dam/%HP with a decent Cr Rate) will be the ultimate rune set for Rakan. As this beast have self inmunity, only teams with debuffers like Orion, Aquila or some Oracles can be a real threat for him. Rakan´s very flaw is SPEED, as his DEFENSE can be broken and therefore he can be nuked before having a chance to react cause he´s a slow monster. That´s why WILL runes are so important for Rakan as long as you can sustain the other stats with them. I´m using Rakan with Great success in Arena Ofense&Defense. My team is Rakan (leader), Chloe, Orion and a nuker (Perna or Laika are the best here). Orion gives me SPD buff, Chloe the 1st turn inmunity and Perna/Rakan do the Dirty job. I hope this review will help you if you´re lucky enough to summon this amazing fire beast.

Thanks for the review man! I find very difficult to challenge arena defense teams with Rakan.. Do you have any suggestion about that? On arena offense I usually use Zaiross (L) Bernard Galleon and Lushen.

To fight vs this beast you need to debuff him or you´re dead, so aim for CLEANERS and debuffers. A mix of this two roles is ORION, as he can clean one buff and place several debuffs, but he depends too much on random targeting, so to be honest, only the ORACLES and some other units that can steal buffs like Sekhmeth and Chiwu are really a threat for Rakan. If you don´t have any of this units, the other option is getting the initiative, then use a stunner or frezer (Tyron can do both roles) then a DEF breaker and try to nuke him. The bad thing is that Rakan might not be alone, in my AD, in example, I pair him with Chloe to avoid Rakan being stunned or freezed before he can cast self-inmunity. So to be honest, only a fast and Violent Orion and the Oracles (not seara) are really effective in countering Rakan.
