Uses

Lupinus is a utility monster that offers attack bar reduction and also single target skill usage prevention. You can use her either as an AoE stunner with despair runes or damage dealer.

Offers

[easytable] Cooltime skill usage prevention, 2 AoE skills, 2 Multi-hit skills hitting 3 times, 20% AoE attack bar reduction[/easytable]

Rune Builds

I recommend going Despair/Revenge(Spd/Hp% or Atk%/Hp% or Acc%). With her attack power being rather average, I would much rather her become a stun bot for ToA or in PvP. Her ability to stop strong monsters from using their skills with cooldowns will come in handy vs monsters like Chasun/Ritesh or any non fire threat. I don’t recommend going Rage/Blade due to her low attack power. Try to get as much Hp% and Acc% substats so she can land her debuffs. Important substats: Spd, Acc%,Hp%, Atk%

Tower of Ascension Viability

Lupinus is a great monster for ToA normal and hard with the despair set. Her base hp pool is decent and if you went with Spd/Hp%/Hp%, she will be durable and can withstand attacks from ToA hard monsters. If you don’t have Veromos yet and you need a stunner in ToA, she does the job pretty well.

Giants and Dragons B10 Viability

Lupinus can be used in Giants B10, but there are better candidates than her[insert any wind damage dealer]. I suggest you only use her for the Necropolis if you need a multi hitter. She is not Dragons B10 material.

Arena and Guild Wars Viability

Lupinus is a niche monster in both arena and guild wars for stunning and also stopping good monsters like Chasun/Theomars from using their vital skills at the right time. I don’t see her used too often outside of that due to her low speed and limited offensive capabilities.

Conclusion: Feed

She can be a viable stunner with utility. I think she isn’t strong enough to warrant you to 6 star her at all unless you really need that skill usage prevention. Plenty of monsters like Julien, Woochi and Lushen will outperform her in many areas of the game.]]>
