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.

ZEN BUILDS / STRATEGY

Zen Build Tips
He should be built like your typical support with lots of Spd, Hp, Def, Acc, followed by Res.

You really need a lot of speed on him so you can interrupt the enemy's turn cycles.

Recommended Artifacts: 

  • DMG Dealt on Water+

  • DMG Received from Fire-

  • [Skill 1] Accuracy +

  • ATK Increasing Effect +

  • SPD Increasing Effect +

  • CRIT DMG Received -

  • Add'l DMG Proportional to ATK

STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES

Strengths:
•Zen in Summoners War is an interruption master!
•His 3rd skill can't be resisted and ruins enemy team comp turn cycles.

•His 2nd skill distributes AoE damage.
•His 1st skill is great for revenge runes to add RNG stuns when attacked. 

Weakness:
•He's not really that useful in PvE.
•He's very stat needy and needs a ton of speed to go first.

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

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

Arena (9/10): His 3rd skill will make him hard to deal with on Defense and can really change the game on Offense to ruin turn cycles especially against teams with ATK boosters and strippers.

RTA (8/10): He is a great counter to cleave teams as long as you can outspeed them.
