Site Review

Dungeons: Raoq’s a great monster for speed NB10 teams. His Annihilate quickly speeds up the time it takes to clear the trash waves, especially with the added bonus of a pretty reliable defense break on his 1st Skill. Despite his seemingly single-target attacks, his 1st Skill always has a good chance of proccing more hits, while his 2nd Skill is pretty much 1 + whatever 1st Skill the teamed up monster had. Also, the Team-up ability will reduce the cooldown of whoever it brings by one-turn. This increases the uptime of the main nukes for your nukers and the heals of your supports. Overall, Raoq is a powerful shield breaker for speed teams, while providing excellent utility in multiple forms.

Outside of NB10, Raoq is also one of the best Secret Dungeon farmers in the game. While he does gets outclassed by powerful AoE-nukers like Lushen later on in the game, it can’t be denied that Raoq’s passive works wonderfully well in any non-Water SD.
Raids: The only debuff Raoq brings is an unreliable defense break. Even then, it’s likely covered by the ever-popular Xiong Fei in most raids team. With him being outclassed in his defense breaks, lack of consistent damage and overall poor bulk, you shouldn’t be using Raoq here.

ToA: While he does his job in the lower stages of ToA, the increasing bulkiness of the monsters in ToA makes it difficult to use Raoq past ToAN50 or any ToAH stages. You won’t be using him in speed ToA teams due to his lack of AoE, while early-game players will definitely benefit from using a more supportive or nuker-heavy monster in lieu of Raoq too. Apart from new players, Raoq shouldn’t be in your ToA team at all.

PvP: Raoq is a very popular monster for newer players due to the insane RNG his 1st Skill brings. While he’s a very fun monster to play with (especially when RNG is in your favor), he can’t really be considered a practical monster in the long run. The randomness of his 1st Skill’s damage and lack of 100% defense break makes it difficult for him to reliable enough in your core PvP teams. His poor base stats and very average multipliers makes it ridiculously easy for him to die too. Beyond certain YouTubers using him for fun, there’s really no reason to be using him.

How to Counter

Raoq really doesn’t pose that much of a threat unless he gets really lucky with the 1st Skill procs. Just to be safe though, Will runes and cleansers like Veromos are a great counter against him. His defense break only has a 50% chance when max, making it difficult for him to land it reliably. Without a defense break, Raoq’s damage is near insignificant, requiring a very high number of hits before he can inflict serious damage on the opponent. As soon as you can get a clean hit off him, he should be easily taken out of the fight.

Other advice:

  • In NB10 teams, you want to make sure Raoq’s one of the first monsters in your team to get a move off (since his primary role is as a shield breaker)
  • Rage will definitely be a better option if you’re going for a full damage build
  • Some accuracy on him is crucial for his defense break to land. Get around 60% to be reliable enough for PvP, or 45% if you’re using him just for NB10

Editor’s Note

RNG is the name of the game, and almost everything about Raoq relies on it to be successful. While he’s an extremely fun monster to play with early on, his lack of reliability just makes him unappealing later on. Players can choose to build him just for NB10, but you shouldn’t be planning on using him in your arena or guild war offense teams seriously past mid-game.

Summary

A good nuker early-game, he falls off due to his unreliability in PvP after a certain point. He’s still a good monster for NB10 though!
