Welcome to one of the TOP3 most underrated monsters in Summoners War. Silver is an amazing and unknown unit, so I will try to explain WHY and HOW. If you take a brief look at the 5 living armors, you may think that Zinc, the dark one, is the only one that can came handy as he has 2 AoE attacks and several interesting debuffs, but you probably wont care about Silver. The issue with Silver is that he´s not an early-mid game unit, he´s an end game unit with one main role: Silver is one of the best Raid frontlines of the entire game, and can also be used as PvP nuker (we´ll see this later). Compared with zinc, Silver loses all AoE capabilities but in compensation he gains much higher debuff% and much higher damage multipliers. So, why is Silver so good as a frontline? Easy: He can perform 3 different roles at the same time: Nuker + Debuffer + Tank. Properly runed, Silver is an amazing nuker, he can deal huge amounts of damage, much more than you may think at first. Also he has some interesting defuffs for the Raid battle with 100% activation rate when max skilled, and last but not least important, Silver is a DEF based monster so he can be a great tank in the Raid front. Now the problem with Silver is that we need a very demanding set of runes to make him shine. You can choose whatever runes between Guard, Endure and Blade, but the main thing is to match (better if you can get more) the following stats: 2000 DEF, 18000 HP, 70% Resistance (can be lower) 75% Crit Rate and 150% Crit Damage. To get this, you´ll have to rune him %DEF/CrDam/%DEF and have lots of CrRate, HP, DEF and Res substats. BUT if you can get it, this unit is amazing in the Raid battle. Now, talking about PvP... I could not believe his power when first tested him at 6*. I use in GW the following team: Orion (DEF leader), Wedjat (DEF buffer, you can use Emma, Imesety, or any other) and Silver. With Orion´s DEF break, Silver can use his 3rd skill for more than 45K damage... hes nearly as good as Isab

Um... just wondering, what is the most underrated monster?

.... he´s nearly as good as Isabelle but much more difficult to kill. Now the problem with Silver in PVP is Speed. Mine is 140 Speed and I find him too slow to fight in Conqueror 1/2 Arena and Guardian 1/2 GW. There are people who claim to use Silver in Guardian Arena and G3 GW, with only +11 SPD, and personally, I do not believe it. So if you plan to use Silver as a PvP nuker, try to give him a good speed or héll be dead before attacking. well that´s all. My apologies if this have taken too long, but I´m pretty satisfied with my Silver´s performance and I wanted to share it with other summoners. I hope you can find this review interesting. May the procs be with you!

Now that I can share links, I´d like to show a couple of images of my Silver build. Why? well, because I think a lot of people don´t really know how to properly rune him and they miss that this is a very difficult monster to rune as he needs a lot of stats to be high. Lots of people rune him all DEf, loosing a lot of damage because of the lack of CrDam. Others have their Silver too slow to be a threat, and others simply don´t match the minimum of HP needed to use him in R5 front line wich is IMO around 20K HP.

So, it´s not to show off, but to share the pics of a very well balanced build that matches high HP, good DEF, CrRat, CrDamage and a very decent SPD. If you can get something similar, try him in R5 and you will have a strong defender that can deal lot of damage and place some useful debuffs in the hidra.

I've had this monster in my store for so long always thinking about building him one day but never saw the viability behind him, I think what Kain says makes perfect sense but it's actually pretty expensive to get done properly so I'll keep him in my store for a little longer. What do you think about Vampire runes for him, would that be somehow viable in R5? I won't build him right now but definetly want to try him one day. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about different monsters, you are truly helpfull.

As I´ve said the only drawback is that Silver build is very demanding to be a suitable R5 frontline. I´ve never tried Vampire but should definitely fit in this monster.
