Review, runes and strategy

Melissa, the Wind Chakram Dancer is a good single target damage based monster in Summoners War. Chakram Dancer and Boomerang Warriors are particular monsters that unlock their true potential if you have at least one Chakram Dancer and one Boomerang Warrior.

Melissa’s first skill, Crescent Moon Slash, attacks the enemy target 2 times, dealing much more damage is the target’s HP is low. If any Boomerang Warrior is in team with Shaina, she will attack alongside with Boomerang Warrior. Also keep in mind that Boomerang Warriors have a similar first skill, that makes them attack alongside Chakram Dancers when they’re using the first skill.

We suggest to have both Chakram Dancer and Boomerang Warriors on Revenge runes, and by doing this when one of the two (or both) will revenge proc, the other one will attack too, thanks to this unique feature on the first skill.

Melissa’s second skill is a two hit on single target with defense break on first hit and attack break on second hit: this skill is good to use in PvE, especially against Raid-Rift of Worlds.

The third skill, like the other Chackram Dancers, has two aspects: first, it makes Melissa attack 2 times the enemy target ignoring alla damage reduction effects (such as shields and invincibility) and her damage will be increased by 10% for each beneficial effect on the target. Second, any Boomerang Warrior that is in team with Melissa, will ignore target’s beneficial effect.

Melissa is good to use in PvE and PvP. You can use her as a damage dealer in Giant B10 and as an utility damage dealer in Rift of Worlds. Also she is good in Necropolis B10 since all her skills are multi-hit: in this case she is very good if built with Violent and Revenge runes.

In PvP use her in Guild Wars and Siege Battle, but also in Arena offense and RTA, since she has a very good ignore damage reduction effects on target: this includes all kind of shields, even from shield runes, defense buff and invincibility.

Melissa is probably the most underrated twin, as almost nobody focus on her while she is surprisingly useful in PvP and a game changer in PvE content.

While her S1 and S2 are common twins skills, S3 is quite unique as it scales BOTH on enemy buffs and debuffs, AND can hit through ANY kind of shield (but the Necro boss shield). So overall and properly used, Melissa allows to:

1.- Hit through shields and INVULNERABILTY, ignoring Chloe, Jeanne and the extremely annoying Halphas shield, giving this unit a unique chance to KILL Halphas even when shielded. And the best part is that it´s extremely fun to do it, specially in RTA :)
She´s also perfect to kill Mo Longs protected by a Slower Jeanne. Mo Long uses S3, then Jeanne shields him for one turn, but Melissa can cut through the shield killing the already damaged Panda without any trouble.

2.- The Buff/Debuff damage scaling allows her to deal significant damage to debuffed enemies. This fact makes her a top tier monster for elemental rifts. I have the best score in rifts but fire among my guild and it´s only because of Melissa. As long as the beast is in groggy state, start debuffing him. As the twins cooldowns decrease when they attack together, Melissa should be able to use S3 two or three times in every groggy, dealing a good amount of damage to the beast, enough to really make a difference.
Maybe I´m too short minded, but I always rune all the twins in Violent SPD/CrDam/ATK, and Melissa is not an exception.
I hope this review may help anyone wondering if she´s worth or not... in my opinion she´s by far the "hidden treasure" of the twins. Build her, you won´t regret it.

If you have any chance to look at my question on Deva's page, I would appreciate ^^

Just got her some weeks ago, thanks for the insight. Now I know she can replace my Deva (not more Shaina, except for wind since the nerf) for the beasts! Though I might still keep my wind homie or a Kro for that purpose.

Melissa is a DOMINATOR. In Giant’s Keep, I pair her up with Fran, Sabrina, Deva, and Shaina. Deva and Shaina put a crazy amount of buffs on the giant, then Melissa finishes it off with Massacre Dance, dealing humongous damage! My Melissa isn’t even awakened or 5 starred or max level, but she is CRAZY!!! One of my best picks :3
