Which Monster Should You Second Awaken First in "Summoners War"
How Dimension Hole changed "Summoners War"
Earlier this year Com2us added the Dimension Hole and second awakenings to Summoner war. This gave us second awakenings for the Fairy, Inugami, Pixie and Warbear families. Just a few months later they added even more seconds awakenings with the Martial Arts cat and Werewolf families being added. So at this point we have a total of 30 different monsters you can grind for. Since each one takes a 1-3 weeks to get depending on your level and stable of monsters, I'm going to try and help you decide which monster is worth second awakening.
First above all you need to consider these factors
- Which Monster you can clear the highest level for
- Which Monster you have the most duplicates of
- Which Monster will help you the most
Who should you second awaken for TOA
In my own experience I have found both Belladeon (light inugami) and Gorgo (dark warbear) to be extremely useful for the Trial of Ascension. That being said Belladeon is 90% effective without it's second awakening so I'm going to have to give this one to Gorgo. The Dark War bear get's an incredible upgrade once second awakened. All his attacks have a 20% additional chance to crit and when they do they stun. Effectively this is similar to running despair, but without having to run despair. His first skill is a single target attack bar reduction which is useful but it's his second skill you'll find most useful. Gorgo hit's all enemies, reduces attack bar and attack breaks. Of course the passive kicks in here as well.
Aside from that hes very easy to farm skill ups for. The fire and wind warbear are 2 star monsters you'll see in your shop everyday and the water is a farmable 3 star. I'd suggest using the water warbear for skill ups. The self revive makes him very easy to carry with no runes and no wasted mana.
Miho-Dark Martial Cat
The best 2nd Awakening for PVP
Miho is the best monster to second awaken for PVP. The competitive scene in Summoners war is sort of wide Category. The needs for Arena, RTA and Guild PVP overlap but aren't all the same. With that in mind the one that think will be the most useful addition to your PVP squad is Miho.
Miho's Eye for an Eye passive ability. She can't be hit by critical hits and when she is hit by one she counters. Not only that it fill her attack bar by 30% and the return hit is a critical itself. If her first 2 skills were awful this alone would still make her great (see Garo) but that's not the case. Her first skill stuns and heals her and her second does damage and decreases the enemy attack bar. This makes for some mean turn cycling.
Miho can be used for offense or defense. So many teams rely on landing big critical hits and she is a counter to this strategy.
Who you should 2nd awaken for the Cairos Dungeons
Belladeon is going to be my pick for best in Cairos Dungeons. Cairos is too big of a category to sum up with one monster. I'll have to expand this at a later date for Giant,Dragon and Necro.
The reason I'm going with Belladeon is simple. You likely already have one. Every player should have a max skilled Light Inugami. It's a staple of every beginners roster and recommended on the cookie cutter teams for both Giant and Dragon.
Defense break, strip and a heal/attack bar boost are all great and after 2nd awakening they all get buffed to be slightly better. Defense break gains a chance to decrease attack bar, strip let's you recover some of your own attack bar if there isn't anything to strip and the heal is 5% better.
Over all Belladeon just gets a little boost. While that doesn't seem like much try to remember it's been the queen of PVE for a long time so any buff is welcome.
You should do this 2nd Awakening for Raids
Hands down it's got to be Kro. The Dark Inugami is the best 2nd awakened monster for raids right now. His brothers Roaq and Ikaru come close but require teams built around them. Kro is mostly self sufficient and can be swapped into almost any existing raid team and work well.
Kro himself has a defense break on his first skill just like the rest of his family, it can apply dots but that doesn't do much here. It's Kro's 2nd and 3rd ability that really shine. Both will do more damage based on the number of harmful effects on the enemy. The 2nd skill brings an ally to attack with much like Tarq or Twins. The 3rd skill has a larger damage multiplier and can apply Brand to the target.
What makes Kro so useful is that he brings 2 of the necessary debuffs to a raid with Defense break and Brand. Further more he'll hit even harder if there are more debuffs in play. He's a super nuker! He's good in a lot of places but he shines most in Raids because of the 6 member team format. The 5 other units that can all bring extra debuffs like slow,glancing hits, attack break,etc
Kro is worth second awakening.
