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:

•Herne in Summoners War is a great counter to CC units. 

•She can transfer all your debuffs on your monsters to the enemy!

•She also decreases ATK Bar and team heals if you don't have any debuffs.

•She can oblivion monsters which can cancel their passives. 

•Her 2nd and 3rd skill have 100% accuracy. 

Weakness:

•Her skill activation rate maxed are not 100% on her 1st skill, making it not fully reliable.

•She needs to be fully skilled up to be effective. 

 

RANKING

GB12 (6/10): Herne can be used in Giants B12 but there are better monsters here.

DB12 (9/10): She would mainly be used here to cleanse the team and transfer all their DoTs. Her ATK bar pushback is very useful here to make sure the Dragon doesn't get a turn. 

NB12 (0/10): She doesn't have enough multi hits to break through the boss' shield and the boss cleanses himself each time. 

ToA (2/10): She doesn't have enough CC to be used here. 

SF10 (2/10): She has elemental disadvantage and isn't recommended in Steel Fortress B10. 

PC10 (0/10): She isn't really useful Punisher Crypt B10 since you mainly want to nuke the boss as fast as possible or do a heavy DoTs team.

Rift of Worlds (8/10): She is great due in R5 to her ability to cleanse and transfer all the debuffs to the monster.

Labyrinth (3/10): She can be used in some niche stages here against monsters that provide a lot of debuffs.

Dimensional Hole (0/10): She isn't recommended here since she lacks Crowd Control. 

Arena (5/10): She is used in niche comps that have a lot of annoying passives.  

Guild Wars (8/10): Nisha is good for many situations such as Theomars or Rica counter. Pretty much any monster immune to death or heavy Crowd Control. 

RTA (8/10): She serves the same role in here as she does in Guild Content.
