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.

ICARU BUILDS / STRATEGY

Triple Icaru Safe Dungeon Build

What you want to focus on is as much Defense as possible with Speed and at least 30% Accuracy to land the defense breaks. Your goal is to get to at least 3,001 Defense after Towers.

 

You'll need to pair all three with Verdehile. NOTE: Verdehile must go last to make this team work. He will also need to be built on pure damage.

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:

•The Water Inugami, Icaru is a turn cycle machine for PvE and can be used in almost all the dungeons!

•His 2rd skill allows you to team up with 3 other monsters. When paired with Verdehile, ATK bar is constantly being increased.

•Icaru's Ai is very smart, and he'll always prioritize his 2nd skill when it's available. 

•His 1st skill defense breaks which allows more opportunities for greater damage output.

•His passive allows him to attack boost himself while giving him built in Revenge Runes. 

Weakness:

•Outside of PVE, Icaru doesn't have a lot of uses for PvP. 

 

RANKING

GB12 (0/10): Icaru isn't really recommended for Giants B12 because of the DEF break your team gets on the final Boss.

DB12 (10/10): Triple Icaru team is great for Dragon's B12 for constant turns and a safer run. 

NB12 (10/10): His team up skills allows for a lot of multi hits which is great for the Necro B12 boss. 

SF10 (0/10): Icaru is not recommended here. There are better monsters for the job. 

PC10 (10/10): Triple Icaru team is great for Punisher Crypt. Make sure you destroy the towers first before attacking the main boss. 

ToA (8/10): Triple Icaru teams are excellent for quick and safe tower runs. Less effective as you get to the higher towers.  

Rift of Worlds (10/10): Icaru is a good Tank in R5 due to his DEF break and 3 monster team up to help reduce cooldowns.

Labyrinth (0/10): He isn't really useful here as there are better monsters for this area.

Dimensional Hole (8/10): He is useful in the star, elemental, and type restriction stages. 

Arena (5/10): Triple Icaru can be used in a early Arena farming team. 

Guild Wars (2/10): He can be used here due to his speed lead but is not recommended.

RTA (2/10): He can be used in early game but doesn't offer enough to be of real use in Real Time Arena.
