Review, runes and strategy

Groggo (Light Golem) is a great defense tank monster in Summoners War.

The Light Golem is a great tank to use in pvp thanks to his second and third skill: the second skill is a buff that increases his defense for 3 turns and grants Groggo immunity effect for the same amount of turns. Moreover it will increase Groggo's attack bar by 50%. This effects last three turns and the skill is relaunchable in 4 turns on max skillup, so you will be without defense buff and immunity for just one turn.

Take into account also that Groggo deals damage with his first skill only, but he does damage proportionate to his defense and he has 60% chanche to stun and a 45% chance to provoke, so when he self buff himself he will deal more damage thanks to his defense buff.

But the most important trait of Groggo is his passive third skill: the damage inflicted to Groggo wil be capped at 20% of his Max HP, which basically implies that Groggo can't be shotted.

So you can build him by focusing on damage output, having good defense, crit rate and crit damage runes.

Groggo is very good to use in Guild and Siege Battles, especially with defense teams: try a tough one with him alongside Khmun as leader and Orion, the enemy will have hard times trying to defeat you!

This is a very nice to have nat3 that can help a lot both as damage dealer and also as tank to stop incoming dmage from enemies like Isabelle, Radgoll or any other Dark nuker.

Groggo is very reliable as long as there are no strippers in the enemy team. That said, my favourite  monster to counter Groggo is Chilling that can easily clean the buffs and deal damage three times most likely ignoring the passive cap.
This Golem is fun to use, I like him on Revenge runes, but is a great candidate to wear some of the new sets like Fight, Determination or Enhance. Best build is %DEF/CrDam/%DEF as long as you can get some SPD substats and a decent Critical Rate. If not, just go all %DEF.
Last, but not least important, Groggo can be the key for all those stucked in the infamous ToAH93 level Leo+4xRadgoll. Just give him enough healing suppor (one Chasun should be enough) and he will tank all the incoming attacks from the Dragon Knights.
