Strength, Weakness, Tips,and Esper Recommendations

[+] High Atk Status
[+] Strong dark element attacks
[+] 100% Dark Resistance (50% natural + 50% from skikkoku)

[-] Almost all dark attacks use HP… This will be really dangerous against boss because they can easily one hit KO the hero
[-] Extremely fragile because of that HP sacrifices….

[0] You can equip him with dual wield and barrage if you don’t want to rely on Dark attack, but that’s 2 TM rewards and 2 abilities slot.

Recommended Esper (Focus on attack):
[0] Ifrit, He’s an physical attacker so it makes sense to increase her attack further.

Rating: 8/10

I can only say that he’s one of the worst 6 stars heroes. Yes, he get powerful attack but that’s really dangerous (HP sacrifice…). He will be easily outclassed by 3 stars base heroes that able to become 6 stars later. His base is 5 stars, so to draw him is….. maybe he’s “shadow/sabin” of 5 stars heroes …
