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.


Ritsu Build Tips
His build is pretty standard for a bruiser build with lots of SPD, HP, ATK, CR, CD and some ACC for all his debuffs. 

As you progress into the late game you'll need to add more speed over time.

•Ritsu in Summoners War is an amazing turn stealing monster with his passive.
•His 1st skill stuns which is great on revenge to dish out additional RNG CC. 

•His 2nd skill protects himself and decreases enemy's DEF.

•He's not really that useful in PvE.
•His turn stealing can be resisted. 



GB12 (0/10): He is not recommended in Giants B12.

DB12 (0/10): He is not recommended in Dragons B12.


NB12 (0/10): He doesn't have multi hits to break through the boss' shield in Necro B12.

SF10 (0/10): He has elemental disadvantage and is not recommended in Steel Fortress B10.

PC10 (1/10): He is not useful here. 

ToA (1/10): He does not have enough CC to be used here.

Rift of Worlds (0/10): He has no real use here. 

Labyrinth (2/10): He could be used in niche lab stages.

Dimensional Hole (2/10): He is not recommended here.

Arena (8/10): He's good on DEF since you don't know who he'll steal from unless you have a light monster. On Offense he's great for interrupting turn cycles. 

Guild Wars (9/10): He is difficult to deal with on DEF, and is great against specific comps on offense. 


RTA (9/10): His passive and self protection makes him annoying to deal with. His 1st skill is a constant RNG to stun and steal a turn which really affects the game.
