Site Review

Dungeons:
  • GB10 – (Rating: 10/10) One of the best DD for speed clear teams. AOE 3rd skill with slow and freeze. A massive 1-hit damage from 1st and 2nd skill perfect for boss. Its skill kit is perfect thus earning the nickname Dungeon king.
  • DB10 – (Rating: 10/10) 3rd skill Crush having 3-turn AOE slow is perfect against boss tower. Taor opens your way to speed runs because it clears the wave faster and its animation is fast. 2nd skill Squall pierces a hard damage even if boss is buffed with immunity.
  • NB10 – Not recommended
Scenario:

(Rating 9.5/10) Very fast fodder farmer on Faimon Volcano Hell

Raids: 
  • R5 – Not recommended
  • Element Rift Beasts – (Rating: 8.0/10) Good YOLO hitter against fire beast. Must be paired with another AOE hitter to constantly clear fire minions. Also viable for Water and Light Beast Dungeons.
ToA: 

(Rating 8.5/10) A good speed clear unit for lower stages of ToA and a situational unit for higher floors. Similar roles with Lushen, Zaiross, and other AOE DD.

PvP:

(Rating: 9/10) Excellent for Arena Offense that requires perfect set-up. Since Taor is squishy he is mostly used for cleave attacks. Meaning you go and set-up a utility buff and attempt to destroy your enemies in your 1st turn. For cleave teams, arena battles never last long and it’s better to have significant action on your 1st turn than actions delayed through time. This monster’s advantage is with a classic AO team that has stripper, buffer, and defense breaker.

How to Counter:

Taor is a glass cannon unit which is common for all DDs. Although you usually won’t encounter him on a defensive set-up, but in case you do the best way to counter him is to bring Wind Element high HP units alongside supports that grant immunity. Another way is to out-speed the enemy team and burst Taor down using your nuker. A 15k damage is usually enough to bring him down because of its low base HP.

Other advice:
  • For Dungeons, Prioritize SPD stats on your runes to compensate his low base SPD. Additionally, Squall scales largely with SPD thus having 180 SPD alone gives 833% multiplier.
  • For PVP since you would want the battle decided on 1st turn using your Crush, rune Taor with ATK/CD/ATK rather than SPD/CD/ATK. This gives you more assurance to wipe at least a few enemies using your AOE hit.
Editor’s Note:

Taor is useful in both PVE and PVP game contents, considered as Dungeon King because of its efficiency as DD against GB10 and DB10. In PVP, Taor is used for cleave comps that requires a perfect set-up for its 3rd skill AOE Crush. 2nd skill Squall scales with SPD meaning Swift and Rune slot 2 makes it a deadly threat reaching 800% multiplier easily. Awakening Taor gives him a very high base attack and a 15% crit rate bonus. Prioritize SPD, ATK, CR and CD for this monster and see its full potential. Definitely worth feeding your Devilmons to.
