ToA: (Not Recommended) Several farmable units outshines him.

PvP: (Rating: 10/10) Chiwu is built for PVP battles, may it be in Arena or Guild War. His skill kit is perfect against will and shield teams due to his 2nd and 3rd skill that strips enemy buffs. Additionally, his normal skill can put enemies to sleep for 2 turns which is a good crowd control. He also has a lead skill of +24% SPD which is perfect for set-up wombo combo.

Aside from that his base HP is very high so he can tank some damage and hit hard using 1st skill because it scales on max HP. 2nd skill wont land a glancing hit and is a counter to units like Theomars which disallows endure skill and beneficial effects. Sleeve attack when maxed is only a 4-turn cooldown good for long battles and recovers 5% HP for each beneficial effect removed. This unit is a scary one to deal with both offense and defense.

How to Counter

Chiwu has a low base DEF of 549 at 6* max. Make sure you bring def breakers (Galleon, Bella, etc.) so you can snipe him with your nukers after applying debuff. Also, water utility units like Orion, Bastet, and Galleon can counter him 1v1 as long as you match his SPD stat.

Other advice:

  • Chiwu has awakening bonus of +25% accuracy, therefore it is easier to allocate other stats after reaching 85% hard cap accuracy. Prioritize HP%, SPD and DEF to compensate his low DEF stat.
  • Place his SPD slightly above buffers and nukers. It is a waste if there is a huge gap in SPD which allows enemy units to cast buff right after using sleeve attack.

Editor’s Note

Chiwu’s role is very limited but effective as a PVP unit. In early game where you are still farming good runes, he gives minimal progress so it is only recommended to build him starting mid-end game scenario. He is a Guardian rating unit both defensively and offensively so it is a game changer for those stuck in Conqueror ranks. Chiwu’s overall stats are high (Except DEF) which means grindstones greatly contribute for his survivability and threat to counter elements. Definitely worth your Devilmon skill-up.
