*Keep in mind these are just general recommendations, you will need to alter your rune and stat builds based on what content you want to use this monster for and what team you are using him with. 

 

If you’re looking for detailed rune and stat builds you should take a look at SWMaster’s Rune Farming Guide – I have been a member of their site since I was new to Summoners War and would highly recommend it to all players.

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:

•The Dark Death Knight, Dias is great for a front line tank in R5 due to his very tanky passive. 

•Since he doesn't need Spd, Atk, Cr, or Cd, in R5, he's relatively easy to rune.

•He is used in PvP Defense because he reduces incoming damage to all allies.

•He has a strong base defense.

•He gains resistance on awakening and has a useful resistance leader skill.  

•He has good debuffs for raids.

 

Weakness:

•Dias is a low damage dealer.

•His base HP isn't good.

RANKING

GB12 (4/10): Dias is great for breaking into Early Giant's B12 with good survival rates. 

DB12 (4/10): He has a similar role in Dragon's B10 as in GB10, you really would only use him in your early teams.

NB12 (0/10): He is not recommended here since he doesn't have any multi hits for the boss' shield.

ToA (0/10): He has no real use here.

Rift of Worlds (10/10): Dias shines in R5 due to his passive which reduces damage dealt to your team. He's a staple to nearly every Raid team. 

Labyrinth (0/10): He has very little use here.

Dimensional Hole (0/10): He is not recommended here.

 

Arena (0/10): He serves no purpose here.

Guild Wars (3/10): He can be used in some early team comps.

RTA (0/10): He serves no purpose here.
