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.

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.
