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.

TANZAITE BUILDS / STRATEGY

General Build

Tanzaite is a pretty standard tank build. Even though everything scales off of Defense, you don't want to build him on pure defense making him weak against DEF breakers. 

He needs Accuracy for his stuns and provokes. Resistance is good to help reduce chance of other debuffs. Don't add resistance at the cost of additional tankiness. Resistance should be last to consider.

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:

•The Water Gargoyle, Tanzaite is a great tank monster for PvP as he can absorb a lot of damage for your team.

•His 1st skill boost his own DEF and can stun.

•His 2nd skill AoE provokes, reduces incoming damage, and immunes him to inability effects.

•His passive reduces the enemy's ATK when they hit him, increasing his survivability as a tank.

•He has a big HP leader skill which is great for survivability and HP base damage dealers. 

Weakness:

•He has no other uses outside of being an offensive tank.

•His 1st skill maxes out at 30% ACC making it unreliable.

PC10 (0/10): He isn't recommended in Punisher Crypt B10.

RTA (2/10): Generally you want support monsters that offer more than just tankiness and will replace him as you get better monsters. 

 

COMBO WITH TANZAITE

Unkillable Tanzaite

Tanzaite + Chasun

Chasun works great with Tanzaite because she can fill up his HP which makes him nearly impossible to kill. She also boosts your team's Attack bar which really helps any damage dealer you bring to this comp.
