Review, runes and strategy

Lushen is one of the best natural four-star monsters in Summoners War. He has a unique skill that easlily puts him also in top 5 attack monsters of the game: his third skill is simply broken. 

That's because this skill is a AoE ignore defense attack and paired with Lushen's base attack value it can be very effective against the enemy. In pvp often he can oneshot most of the enemies provided the right conditions.

For this purpose, it is better to build your arena offense team as follows: first use a speed and attack bar buffer with high value of speed (depending on the cases you may want at least 220+ speed value to be competitive in Conqueror 1) like Bernard-Wind Griffon, second a attack buffer (one of the best and very affordable is Sieq-Fire Hellhound beacuse he also buffs crit rate, then plays Lushen and with his third skill kills most of the enemy team.

To maximize third skill damage the best option is to build Wind Joker with Rage Runes and try to exceed 200% crit damage and 2000 attack value to see some real carnage!

Also second skill is quite nice, a AoE damage plus random weakening effect skill, in common with other Jokers.

Having two skill with AoE, it is possible to build Lushen with Despair Runes as a crowd control stunner if you are PvE oriented; also his leaderskill can be good in some cases (33% attack power to all allies in dungeons).

However Lushen's best environement remains PvP offense.

Raid Dungeons

He is a must have in rift of worlds dungeons due to is high base attack value and skills multiplier.
For us he is a good backliner, valuable for Water Beast and Wind Beast.

Lushen in Giant B10

In giant B10 dungeon, double lushen are a common choice usually teamed up with Tarq (Water Hellhound), Galleon and another AoE nuker like Teshar (Wind Phoenix), Akhamamir (Wind Ifrit) or Lagmaron (Wind Chimera).
The main goal is to get lushens strong enough to nuke an entire stage with their third skill (8K per card could work) and when both are on cooldown Galleon (Water Pirate Captain) can go with Time to Loot to def break enemies and then the AoE nuker will go for 1-shot targets. Tarq here is used as a stabilizer, it can deal some pretty damage to the boss while refresh cooldowns of the allies during the run.

Vampire Lushen

As strange as it could sound the wind joker is found to be viable and really helpful in Necropolis Dungeon B10 if runed vampire. This PvE content is particularly hostile with born natural nukers like him, because Dark Golems reflects damage, so the more damage you deal the more you receive, and usually a nuker without a good healing will die before the boss or arrive at the final stage with less than 50% hp.
Vampire runes may be with Endure to get more stability will solve this kind of problem and let you go with less than 2 minutes run on NB10 without much effort.

Anyway we not suggest to rune Vampire your first neither your second lushen, wait for the third :)

Actually, I think Fatal is more useful to him than Rage. Save your Rage runes for lower atk attaker.

Two brief subjects to comment about Lushen:

1.- He´s an incredible Aiden farmer. Mine is far away from being a top Lushen (Indeed Katarina and not him has my best Fatal/Blade rune set) and can solo clear Aiden Hell in an average of 35-40 seconds.

2.- Actually most advanced players are ruing Lushen Swift with insane substats to get about 200 total SPD and still a great nuking power. Using this Lushens in Real Time Arena they get amazing results. So be aware of top players Lushen´s not only for their attack power but also for the insane speed they can get.
