ATK%

CD% / CR%

Only use CR on slot 4 if you can't get enough CR substats. 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.

SHIHWA BUILDS / STRATEGY

Full Damage Build

Sian is pretty straight forward to build. You want her to deal as much damage as possible to be effective in Wind Rift and R5. 

She should be on Fatal/Blade or Rage/Blade to get maximum damage with her 3rd skill. After that focus on accuracy to land the Brand and Speed.

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:

•Shihwa in Summoners War is a powerful damage dealer for Wind Rift with attribute advantage and huge ATK leader skill for fire monsters. 

•Her 3rd skill brands and does damage that scales off of debuffs which is great for R5.

•Her 2nd skill sleeps then instant gives her another turn. 

 

Weakness:

•Immunity monsters like Fran, Chloe, or Lulu will reduce her damage output.
