Rune Recommendations

CC Utility/ TOA – Despair/Focus (Spd/Hp%/Hp%)

Site Review

Dungeons:

  • GB10 – (Rating: 7/10) Can be a bruiser, debuff caster and stripper for your team. His 2nd and 3rd skill deals damage proportionate to max HP so you don’t need ATK stats to deal good damage. Most importantly, he has 2 AOE attacks and applies def break,slow, and DoT which makes it easier to kill enemy waves including the boss stage. his strip can also help remove DEF and ATK buff of boss crystals.
  • DB10 – (Rating: 8/10) Highly recommended for starters of DB10. 2 AOE attacks with slow, def break and DoT to clear the waves faster, also very useful to slow crystals that gives ATB and immunity to boss. Its 1st skill is very useful in case the dragon gets immunity so he can strip and reapply debuffs again. Its stats are also good enough to tank 1 or 2 boss attacks in case the dragon steals a turn. Rune him a speedy unit to attack frequently.
  • NB10 – Not recommended

Raids: 

  • R5 – Not Recommended
  • Element Rift Beasts – Not Recommended

ToA: (10.0/10) Highly recommended since its skill kit is perfect for crowd control. Keep in mind that hard cap of accuracy is 45% for PVE, allocate the remaining stats on its HP and SPD. The key in clearing TOA is constant CC and DoT and 2 of its skills fullfill the job. 2nd skill is AOE slow, 3rd skill is def break and DoT. Pair him with units like Baretta and Mav for maximum efficiency.

PvP: (Rating: 8/10) A powerful defense breaker for PvP. His tanky stats allows him to easily survive in Shield Will comps, while his HP-scaling AoE attacks means he can finish the job when things gets rough. While he is for sure outclassed by Galleon, he’s still a viable monster for non-attack scaling cleave teams.

How to Counter

Mantura is commonly used on PVE but if ever you encounter it on Arena or GW, bring a high spd def breaker and kill him in your first 2 turns because his base DEF is low. Moreover, it does not deal heavy damage in a number of turns but what makes it useful for a team is its set-up debuffs (def break and slow). Make sure to kill him 1st before it applies debuff on your team. Also be aware that most Mantura has high accuracy so be careful in bringing low resistance and slow units.

Other advice:

  • Mantura needs good runes to flourish. Stat priority in order: Accuracy (until 45%), HP, SPD, and DEF.
  • He can also be used in Wombo Combo set-up for Akhamamir based teams because additional damage is inflicted the more debuffs are applied to enemies.

Editor’s Note

Mantura is useful from early to end-game scenario and highly recommended to 6*. He is a staple unit for ToA Normal/Hard because its skills are good for crowd control. Also, this unit does not have element disadvantage when attacking which means you are more likely to land the debuffs against PVE (just make sure Accuracy is at least 45%). You need to equip good runes for Mantura to be effective. Its base stats are not very high and you need a good amount of SPD, HP, and DEF for survivability. It is a nat 3 unit so it is easy to max his skills.

    Can farm faimon in 50 seconds.
    Trial of Ascension Boss
    Good in dragons and giants and secret dungeons.
    He's ok in pvp too
    He works really well with Thrain
    He can strip on his s1 which means with rev he can probably definitely be a super reliable stripper in dragons

    Negatives

    He can be hard to get with the scarcity of LD scrolls.
