Raoq is a early to mid game damage dealers that offers defense debuffs and a quick secret dungeon farmer if he can one shot enemies. In short, he is a good mid game dungeon damage dealer to help you farm faster alongside the water magic knight Lapis.
[easytable] , Unpredictable bonus damage, Team up with allies for bonus damage, Kill resets[/easytable]
I recommend you build him to be your secret dungeon farmer. Depending on the runes you have, Fatal/Blade(Atk%/Crit R%/Atk%) to be able to deal enough damage to get the kill reset.
For unpredictable damage, Violent/Blade(Atk%/Crt D%/Atk%) is a great choice. it does require a better rune requirement for this to work. A nice proc on Raoq’s first skill usually means a dead monster and a potential of multiple turns.
Important substats: Spd, Atk%, Crit R%, Crit D%
Raoq works very well with any monster that has a debuff on their first skill. Think Tyron, Belladeon, Kro, Sieq and Colleen are great partners to team up with.
Tower of Ascension Viability
Raoq can work in ToA normal in lower stages(1-50), but for higher stages and ToA hard, he becomes too squishy to be able to survive.
Giants and Dragons B10 Viability
Raoq is not a Giants nor Dragons B10 member due to no element advantage. However, he is useful as a damage dealer in giants b8 and dragons b6 where he gains an elemental advantage.
Arena and Guild Wars Viability
Raoq is a great damage dealer up to about fighter 3 in the arena. His viability pass conqueror 1 drops off as monsters are tanky and he needs really good runes to be a big threat.
In guild wars, he can be paired with Tyron, Shumar, Tarq or Galleon for some good all out attack composition.
Conclusion: Keep Unless You Have Better Attackers
All in all, he is a good pick till mid game. You can choose to keep him and 6 star him and try out unique combos and also be a reliable secret dungeon farmer. However, for late game, there are plenty of fire attack monsters(Jean, Kahli etc.) that will do a much better job at outputting damage.]]>
