Review, runes and strategy

Shimitae (Wind Sylph) is a good single target nuker in Summoners War featured in the June 2017 Hall of Heroes, he is a multipurpose nuker suitable for PvE and PvP content (especially for his speed leader skill and huge damage multipliers), if found in early game he could be a really game changer and in comparison to other nukers, Shimitae have also a high base HP. but let's see why is he good in details.

Shimitae in Giant B10

The wind sylph is a good alternative to Lagmaron and Double-Lushen Giant Dungeon teams if paired with Galleon.
If you runed Shimitae properly, his third skill can deal great damage due to its high damage multiplier (estimated multiplier value is 730%) and his second skill offers AoE nuking capabilities that really deserves building. After the 2016 buff he brings speed debuff on third skill, that is a nice to have capability against the giant boss.

Shimitae in Arena

Thanks to his majestic speed leader skill in Arena (+24% on all allies) he is suitable from early to endgame (if you are missing better monsters like Psamathe - Water Fairy King). He is pretty much better than Izaria, the Water Succubus due to his greater damage dealing and crowd control capabilities.

Suggested Runes on Shimitae

Focus on speed because it would be a must from Fighter to Conqueror levels, despite his AoE skill we think its not enough to rune him for CC, so try build his atk% cr% and crit damage%.
Do not spend devilmon on him, sylphs are not so rare to scroll and there's one available from the fusion hexagram (see Baretta the Fire Sylph).

All games: Rage/Blade -  Atk%/Crt Dmg%/Atk% 
Need for speed: Swift/Blade - Atk%/CD%/Atk%

My Shimitae can kill lvl 40 instantly and isn't even skilled up all the way 

First skill increases crit rate

Second reduces speed and can have a chance to glance

Third skill is a your basic nuke

The "Combo" is first skill,third skill then second(You can do second first but you might die before that) 

Build Blade/Fatal Spd/att/att

Great toy
