    Hello!

    I have a 6* Hiva, which everyone has been giving me crap about. Hey, I'm new. Just trying to amp up the best monster I had. Truth be told, I was also going for a Sons of Anarchy theme and Hiva was doing pretty well for me for a while.

    Rather than waste any more time on 6-starring the wrong monsters, I've been Googling the best monsters to 6-star, but most lists only concern the top 4 of someone's current collection rather than a general list.

    So, for those who seem to be in the know, what are your top 10 monsters to 6*?

    "most lists only concern the top 4 of someone's current collection rather than a general list."

    yeah that's what happen. because too many monster are great to be 6*-ed, so most ppl just pick on what you have based on how your team was build.

    Hmmm, but everyone seems to agree that 6* Hive is no good. Alright, I guess I'll have to post my monsters * sigh *.

    So one mistake you made was the grim reapers. I personally and i think many agree that the grim reapers are all pretty bad. If i had to pick one to bring up it would be the fire one but even then no more than 5. Fran isn't that great from what i can tell. That wind chimera though should be prioritized. Essentially any nat 5 you get sholud be prioritize and btw you are very very lucky to get him =). water 9 tails is situational but can be very powerful in her role. water pierret is pretty strong for early and mid game arena. I'd recomennd bringing her up. water death knight used to be no good but i'm pretty sure hes decent now. I dont remember exactly what he does but he should be looked into. fire high ele is also popular amongst many top tier players but shes also situational she is very squishy so you need a team that can tank everything for her to go to town. water mystic witch is good if you want a buffer, she buffs atk def and atk bar so pretty decent, i used her for awhile as well.

    I guess back to your original question, who you shoudl 6*, i'd say focus on that chimera for now. Next id say pierret for a strong water atker. After that just read what i had to say on your monsters and decide from there

    hemos better than hiva in carios.
    fire sky dancer is better version of hiva with heal and buff and her 3rd skill random aoe.
    water pieret can remove beneficial effect and have pretty good hp/atk/def/spd basic stat. her 3rd skill can clean faimon normal monster even with only 3* rune.
    chimera are great monster even though his atk not that big, but his 2nd skill give a nonstop speed buff if you build it correctly. and that hp/def stat is clearly make no sense for attacker, it just too big for attacker.

    ok now, you get the attacker but how to make them stronger.. you need buffer.
    fire sky dancer can buff attack, but just attack but she have heal though, :)
    maybe best arena buffer are megan aka water mystic witch she can buff atk def and also can bring all your team to move first.

    so here my choice :
    wind chimaera = swift/blade or rage/blade build with spd/criD/atk%
    fire sky dancer = fatal or rage/blade all atk% or criD at slot 4
    hemos = violent/focus or swift/focus with hp%/hp%/acc + some spd substat
    megan = swift/focus with spd/hp%/hp%
    water pieret = fatal or rage and blade or focus depend on your crit rate with full atk% or criD at slot 4
    wind succubus = her sleep and disturb recovery can become big trouble at arena and her 3rd skill can be used at giant b10 you can build her with anything as long her accuracy reach 100% and bigger hp for giant hunt.

    the next 6* is fire sky dancer since she can heal bigger and have better chance to one shot kill enemy.
    after that chimaera
    and after that, let's see what role you need.

    Trust me, you want to awaken Lagmaron and get him to 6 star asap. His third skill is a great aoe/CC and his 2nd skill can one shot an opponent (ymmv).

    Thanks, everyone!
    I've got Fran maxed out at 5* (except skills) and I'm working on Chimera. It will take a while to awaken him since you need 2k High Wind, 2k Mid Wind, 2k High Magic and 2k Mid Magic :p, but I'm at least building his experience.

    I'm going to keep Hiva and Fran to use them as leads for grinding (getting exp). They may come in handy for other teams later. I still think Hiva is underrated, but not worth making a 6* as I did. Oh well. I think Fran is pretty darned good, too. She has the ability to heal anyone and also heal while buffing. She's proven to be a survivor in dungeons and really boosts the teams, especially as leader where she gives speed to anyone regardless of element. Hiva needs that! :p

    After that, I'll work on Water Pieret. I'm stuck on the Fire Sky Dancer and the Water 9-tail Fox. I've gotten split advice, so I'm going to hold them for last so hopefully by then, I'll have a better idea of what will work for my small team.

    Tbh I was interested in the fire sky dancer so i built her hoping it'd be fun to play her. I regret it haha. Her heal/buff is based off of atk which makes her squishy, which is fine if she can also play the role of a nuker. Catch is, she can't be a nuker, shes pretty awful at it haha and the reason is that her 3rd skill aka her damage is random. She'll send out 5 atks or whatever which does mediocre damage and its all random. The chance of 3+ hitting a single target is low and therefore she has almost no kill potential despite having all that atk. So just based off of personal experience i'd say forget her. I read up on water 9 tails skills as i mentioned i forgotten what they were and so now im back wiht better reasoning as to why you would want to use her haha. She is in a way a counter to chole, acasis, buffers, etc. in the arena. How so? what you want you do is set up your speed right so that she can go after the enemy buffers but before your nukers. Have high acc on her and pray that your 3rd skill wiht proc and remove their buffs. So you kinda have a way to deal with those dam chole players haha. Again like i said she is very situational and requires you to figure out what your needs are. If you have no problems with choles or acasis etc. then you probably won't have to bother. I personally use the wind brownie magician which has a very similar skill to water 9 tails, for annoying teams running acasis and chole. It just saves me a lot of time. Hope this helped

    The wind chimera most definitely. He should be your main focus. Do not feel bad that you 6 starred those grim reapers , now you have some 6 stars that no one else has! Think of them as collectible and unique cause I have never seen 6 star ones before. Here is what you need to focus on
    wind chimera
    water nine tails
    fire sky dancer

    Those 3 will be useful to you in the long term for various reasons. You need to get light bearman/light inugami on sunday when the SD are open. One of them will be a big help just get which ever you can.

    Thanks! I will most likely go after the light inugami since I really liked having the 5* water inugami a long time ago. A couple of more 5* mons and I'll be ready to kick chimera up to 6*.

    Hey everyone!

    Thanks again for helping me prioritize my mons. I've put in some effort and summoned a few more, so I was hoping to impart on your advice again. I've attached the 3 images of my current mons list:

    IMG_6258.jpg IMG_6259.jpg IMG_6260.jpg

    As you can see, Chimera is 6* (still farming essence to awaken, hah maybe in a month!) and I pulled two more nat 5*s out of my b***: 1 wind and 1 water monkey king. EDIT: Also, I have 3/4 ingredients for Phoenix. Any advice on these and others?

    Thanks!

    Wow you are so lucky! I would definitely focus on your natural 5 stars! With chimera as leader you can make a wind defense team at some point. Also what happened to your other 6 stars?
    Wind monkey king can be built for damage since he is so naturally tanky due to his passive. att%/att%/accuracy with energy/energy/focus maybe? I think accuracy is so good because his 1st skill will be going off constantly and when it triggers due to his passive it can apply the stun. The build I recommended is not standard but I think it will be good.

    The water MK how ever I have never really seen and know very little about. From what I read fatal/blade with speed/crit rate/att% should be decent until you have better runes. Not to sure though sorry!

    Also every week get a devilmon from arena shop if you aren't already! Give these to your chimera until his 2nd and 3rd skill are maxed do not worry about his first skill. If you have already been doing that then I think the wind monkey king is good for skilling up to raise the effect rate on his 1st and 2nd skill if your chimera is finished.

    For wind defense you want to pull a wind slyphid,Wind death knight, Wind undine, or wind sky dancer. You are bound to get some of these eventually and when you do they can make a pretty nice defense since you already have two good wind 5 stars.

    5* Wind Chimera
    Thanks, housespider! I had only one other 6* (water reaper) and used him to feed Chimera after I 6*'d him to lvl him quickly. I kept Hiva because he's still been doing pretty well for me, especially in SDs. With his ability to take another turn after killing and reusing his 3rd skill after a kill without waiting several turns allows him to really lay down some damage. He's sort of my escort for lvling other mons.

    I think you would like water monkey king. His 3rd skill is Alter Ego where he attacks 1 mon 4 times and then is shielded until his next turn. I'll be amping him up as well.

    Some suggested putting revenge on wind monkey king to increase the chance of counter attack and just amp up his atk%. We shall see. 3x energy or focus wouldn't be bad either. :)

    Do you think that since they are nat 5*s that they should be the next candidates for 6*?

    Yes about them being next 6 star.

    Revenge on wind monkey king might not be worth it for a few reasons. One is it is harder to get good revenge runes and two he is not likely to be focused due to his reduced damage passive. His reduce damage passive is a good reason to build him with accuracy and att% because he will be tanky regardless. Hope my thought processes makes sense their. Like you can build him tanky and make him a brick wall but all he will really be doing is sitting their sort of like how rina just sits their and does nothing.
