Summonerswar.co Thoughts and Recommendation
After quite a while, Com2Us gave us a remarkable monster for this month’s Hall of Heroes. Dark Assassin (Isabelle) is widely known as a PvP offense unit like her wind element counterpart, Tanya. Albeit their similarities, Isabelle has a higher base ATK which further amplifies her damage when equipped with good runes, and her awakening bonus gives an additional 15% Crit Rate which makes it is easy to rune her. Because of this, she can be an effective unit even for beginners. Not only that, Isabelle is also an hard-hitting Damage Dealer in PvE (GB10 and Rift Dungeons).
True to being an Assassin, Isabelle’s single attack can deal a fatal blow. She is not reliant on supports to be effective because her skillset already grants self-buff (Crit Rate and ATK increase), DEF break and can set-up on her own to instantly gain an extra turn after using her 2nd and 3rd skills. It means she is independently strong by herself. She is quite speedy too with 102 base speed.
This event is too good to miss out, and definitely a treat for all of us knowing that this monster is a Rare L&D Nat4★ unit. Isabelle requires 12 skill-ups to max and you can use same family monsters or Devilmons to achieve it.

Clearing B10 Guide
We’re in for a treat for this month’s Hall of Heroes (HoH) featuring Isabelle, the Dark Assassin. She is a beastly single-target Damage Dealer in both PvP and PvE scenarios. Get ready to clear all 10 floors because this monster is a must-have for all Summoners!
Similar to last month’s HoH (Light Chakram Dancer), only the mini-boss stage has the capability of casting immunity. Knowing that all monsters including bosses are susceptible to Damage over time (DoTs), Full Crowd Control and Continuous Damage teams will surely make this an easy event.
Some farmable monsters that are highly recommended in your HoH team are Verdehile, Baretta, Mav, Spectra, and Homunculus. The key is to completely disable the enemy waves during your first team turn and inflict slow debuffs, which is also why AoE attackers like Baretta need to have Despair runes. A perfect example for this situation is Stage 2 because the enemies are capable of killing one of your monsters once they get an attack turn. In Stage 3, the mini-boss should also be CCed asap to prevent her from casting immunity.
Based on speed tuning and calculation, to guarantee a first team turn your units must have ~220 SPD (total including Lead and Tower bonus). To guarantee safety, monsters should have around 20k HP and at least 700 DEF to survive the majority of enemy hits. Overall difficulty is 6/10. Clear all 10 floors and get 250 summoning pieces (5 summons) of Dark Assassin!
*All floors from B1-B10 have same units in stages 1-5
Stage 1 – 3 Fire Assassins, 2 Water Liches
Stage 2 – 3 Wind Assassins, 2 Fire Neostone Agents
Stage 3 (Mini-Boss) – 1 Dark Harp Magician, 2 Light Jokers
Stage 4 – 3 Water Assassins, 2 Wind Barbaric Kings
Stage 5 – 3 Light Assassins, 2 Dark Death Knights
Stage 6 (Final Boss) – 1 Dark Assassin, 2 Assassins (elements vary each floor)
Stage 1: Prioritize disabling the Fire Assassins during the first team turn because they are capable of setting up DEF breaks and Brand Debuff to kill your wind-type monsters. Since you cannot stun/freeze/sleep Water Lich due to its passive skill, you can still reduce its attack bar and grant SPD reduction debuff from units like Spectra.
Stage 2: This is a crucial stage where you have to disable the enemies at all cost during your first team turn and continually controlling them. Wind Assassin and Fire Neostone Agent are a deadly combo because Tanya can insta-kill an enemy with her insane combo from a single attack turn while Lisa can unleash her 3rd skill allowing all units to be cleansed and have 3 of them attack you.
Stage 3 (Mini-Boss): Focus on disabling Dark Harp Magician. If you have a Mav, provoke the Dark Harp Magician to prevent her from casting immunity buff. It is not necessary to kill the 2 Light Jokers because killing the mini-boss will automatically bring you to the next stage.
Stage 4: Just prioritize on disabling the Water Assassins on your first team turn and you are safe since Wind Barbaric King isn’t capable of dealing huge damage on a single turn. The benefit of using a Verdehile will clearly show in this stage as it increases the rate of your team’s attack turns and has a leader skill of +28% speed.
Stage 5: Similar to Stage 1, this stage is less threatening compared to other monster waves. Use AoE utility supports like Veromos and Baretta to stun the enemies and follow up with AoE slow debuff and disable the Light Assassin to avoid any threat. It should be easier for your team to apply debuff because there is no element disadvantage when attacking.
Stage 6: Control and disable the Dark Assassin as she is the most lethal attacker and highly capable of picking off your monsters in a single attack turn. Like the mini-boss stage, Use Mav to provoke the boss and it can easily tank a single normal attack having at least 22k HP. Finally, use CC and DoT to clear this final stage since HoH boss can still be affected with Continuous Damage, Freeze, and Provoke.
