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.

LIAM BUILDS / STRATEGY

Liam Build Tips
His early-mid game build is pretty standard for a damage dealer with lots of ATK, CR, CD and some ACC for his debuffs. Despair is great since he has 2 AoE skills which gives more additional Crowd Control

As you progress into the late game you can put him on Violent to get more out of his DPS. 

Recommended Artifacts: 

  • DMG Dealt on Fire+

  • DMG Received from Wind-

  • [Skill 1] Accuracy +

  • [Skill 2] Accuracy +

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:
•Liam in Summoners War is a great unit for the annoying invincibility levels in ToA since he can AoE Block Beneficial.
•All of his skills are Multi Hits which makes him useful in Necro B12.
•His first skill heal blocks. 
•His 3rd skill hits a lot and deals damage base on enemy's MAX HP.
•Since two of his skills are AoE he is excellent for Fire Rift to clear the fire minions. 


Weakness:
•He isn't very useful in PvP or End Game content. 

 

RANKING

GB12 (8/10): He can be used in Giants B12, but you generally want nukers or monsters with more CC to farm this dungeon. 

DB12 (2/10): He is not recommended as beneficial block can be cleansed in Dragons B12. 

 

NB12 (10/10): All of his skills are multi hits which is great for breaking through the boss' shield. Also his last skill hits 6x since there's only one enemy. 

SF10 (6/10): He can be used for Steel Fortress B10 but to block the boss form getting his shield. 

PC10 (3/10): He can be used here, but there are better options. 

ToA (8/10): He is great on Despair runes and amazing against monsters who put up annoying buffs like shield and invincibility. 

Rift of Worlds (8/10): He is solid for Fire rift since 2 of his skills have AoE and the boss has a lot of HP. 

Labyrinth (3/10): He has the same uses here as he does in ToA. 

Dimensional Hole (8/10): He is good on despair in the normal and elemental restriction stage.

Arena (1/10): His skill kit doesn't make him very useful for this content.

Guild Wars (3/10): His skill kit doesn't make him very useful for this content.

 

RTA (3/10): His skill kit doesn't make him very useful for this content.
