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.
•The Water Dragon, Verad, is a crowd control machine!
•He is useful in almost every part of the game.
•He is the best farmer in the game usable for scenario and Hall of Heroes.
•Verad is an excellent monster for super safe GB10 and DB10.
•He is the best monster to have on your ToA auto team.
•He has very tanky base stats.
•His leader skill is really useful and can be used anywhere!
•There are several ways to build him based on what you need.
•He is an amazing monster throughout the whole game for early even to end.
•Verad is very stat hungry.
•His base speed is one of the lowest in the game.
•His 2nd and 3rd skill needs to be fully skilled up to get the most out of him.
•He is defense based and is weak against ignore defense from Lushen.
GB12 (9/10): Verad is great here for safe runs in Giants B12.
DB12 (9/10): He has the same role in Dragon's B12 as he does in GB12.
NB12 (0/10): He is not recommended here as he lacks any multi-hits to break through the Necro B12 Shield.
ToA (10/10): He is one of the best monsters to have for ToA for auto teams and the bosses. His CC can hold down the enemy and make sure they don't move.
Rift of Worlds (0/10): He is not recommended here as there are better damage dealers and supports for this area.
Labyrinth (10/10): His CC is great for many stages in Lab.
Dimensional Hole (9/10): He can be used in several stages here.
Arena (10/10): He can be used for some speed cleave teams here and is good for defense.
Guild Wars (10/10): He is good for both offense and defense.
RTA (10/10): He's a strong pick for RTA when he's on Violent and Will. He should be built as a bruiser here to be useful as support and damage.
