The Hall of Heroes is a very difficult dungeon where you can collect high grade monsters. Newcomers and lower-level Summoners, beware!
The Light and Dark Hall of Heroes are always a joy to predict. Maybe it’s because it’s a chance to get a rare L&D monster in your arsenal, or maybe we’re just suckers for some cooler looking monsters. But it’s still unheard of to get a solid Hall of Heroes, and more so to get a monster that isn’t the weakest in her family. There are uses for pretty much all of the Nine-tailed Foxes, so let’s quit daddling over here and get right on with the family analysis!
A great PvE monster in general, Shihwa is a very good, albeit niche monster to have in certain key areas of the game. She’s an amazing monster to have in an NB10 team, especially for newer to mid-game runs. With an array of multi-hits, solid debuffs (branding is always appreciated) and a smart 2nd Skill sleep to cycle her skills, she’s a perfect shield breaker for any player. Apart from this, she’s also great in the Wind Beast raids too. Unless you have a rare monster like Cadiz, the Dark Vampire, there’s few options you have for a hard-hitting brander to significantly boost your final scoring here. And this is of course, not forgetting her insane 40% Fire Monster Attack increase, which is sure to synergize not only with her skills, but with any other fire damage dealer you have in your team.
Being one of the few 4* bearers of an AoE strip makes Soha a constant consideration for many players out there. With her only proper competitor as a 4* monster being Aquila, the Wind Brownie Magician, many players will choose to build her until they’re lucky enough to get 5* premium monsters like Triton, Chiwu and of course, the coveted Tiana. Strippers are an extremely crucial role in PvP, making her vital for any Galleon or bomb comps to speed up your teams. Apart from this obvious role though, Soha is also an amazing Faimon Hell farmer for anybody looking to build one. Her 3rd Skill hits really hard, giving her little issues in taking out an entire trash wave quickly and efficiently. Her Soul Snatcher, which boasts an impressive 580% multiplier, is more than enough for you to sustain some hits. Newer players looking for an upgrade over their early-favorite Lapis can consider her, while those interested in expanding their PvP capabilities are sure to have an interest in her.
Most well-known as fusion material for Sigmarus by newer players, Arang is often an overlooked monster when one is looking for a powerful wind nuker. With the highest base attack of any 4* monster and an 800% multiplier on her 3rd Skill, many will be surprised at just how hard this little spirit can hit. Many will favor her in areas like Raids and Water Beast dungeons, where her impressive damage and myriad of debuffs are sure to come in handy. Some will choose to use her even in speed content like GB10, despite having zero AoE nukes among the sea of Lushens around her. While she might not be as impressive in PvP, she’s still arguably one of the better single-target nukers out there in the game. The fact that she’s a fusion monster should in fact be a blessing more than a curse for her, since newer players will be able to easily get a hold of her for progression purposes.
While there are sure to be some proponents for the Light Nine-tailed Fox being the best in her family, I find her to be a pretty average monster as a whole. Her 3rd Skill is definitely impressive, with not only a complete heal and cleanse, but an instant 50% buff to her attack and defense as well (which, by the way, is for her base stat). A couple of Reincarnates are all she needs to start hitting and tanking like a truck, but she’s a tad vulnerable until then. The only places where she’s variable are in certain Raid comps, where she can act as a pseudo-Mei Hou Wang, or in Siege Battles against stall comps. Unlike the rest of her family, she’s more of a toy to experiment and play around, rather than a core unit in some areas of the game. Build her if you’d like, but do know that the battle might be long over before she’s able to get all her buffs up.
I’m sure many of you reading this have come across some Kamiya videos on YouTube. Her ability to lockdown two targets in a single turn (sort-of) is a rare skill to have in Guild Wars & Siege Battles. And remember, her 3rd Skill is GUARANTEED to stun any monster that doesn’t have some form of immunity on them. Yes, this means it bypasses the accuracy / resistance check that other debuffs in the game have to gamble on. Dish out a two-turn sleep on any unfortunate monster, and use her 3rd Skill for a stun on another, and you’ve already gained a huge control over the battlefield. However, while this makes the Dark Nine-tailed Fox an absolute beast there, she requires good support to do well. Due to her lack of set-up capabilities like defense breaks or attack buffs, she’s heavily reliant on her allies to set up for her before she’s really able to display her prowess. With an impressive base attack and a powerful 3rd Skill, “Nightmare” is a skill name that truly befits a monster like Kamiya.
Conclusion & Summary
If you can’t clear all the stages, you’re highly recommended to farm at least one. Skill ups this time aren’t exactly as rare since the Wind Nine-tailed Fox is a fusion monster, but it’s worth the hassle in getting as much as you can. Depending on which content you’re looking to clear, the main elemental Nine-tailed Foxes are sure to help you. But if you’re way past that and are just looking for some new toys with interesting skill sets, both Chamie and Kamiya are some obvious lock-ins as candidates as your next 6* monster.
