Player Notes by Circlets
I don’t really have extensive information for Laika because he’s not as versatile as my other monsters and is not good enough to replace my other monsters on AO. Although I may not have a good use for him, he is still a really good attacker, and he has the capabilities of one or two shotting wind monsters on the enemy team.
In addition, because of his passive skill, Noble Blood, he won’t hit glancing hits, which means he can still prove a threat to water monsters, and having a chance to stun enemies when they attack him is pretty useful. His leader skill is pretty niche, since it increases the defense of fire monsters by 50%, so if you have a fire team/fire monsters, especially ones that depends on defense (like Velajuel), he can definitely prove useful.
Ultimately, if you need a reliable attacker against any element and have nobody SIGNIFICANTLY better to use, Laika will definitely fill and excel in that role. This concept also plays out in PVE: he’s a great attacker, but if you have monsters with more utility that can synergize better with the rest of the team, Laika isn’t necessary.
I wanted to utilize his first skill’s ability by inflicting DOT by landing a critical hit, so ideally, I would give him Rage/Blade runes. However, since I have terrible luck with Rage runes, I substituted them with Fatal.
