Sian is an attacker that has a revive passive. While that might look like a good idea, it really hampers his damage output since his first and 2nd skill doesn’t really hit hard compared to other damage dealers.
|Random AoE debuff||Revives when dead|
You can try to build him as a stunner – Despair/Focus(Spd/Atk%/Acc%). I don’t think a rage/blade build would benefit much since his skills aren’t all that hard hitting.
Important substats: Spd, Atk%, Hp%
Tower of Ascension Viability
There are better monsters than Sian to be used in ToA normal and hard. The only good option I see that has a use for him are in wind stages where he will just be a bait for wind monsters to target. Bring a reviver and you will have a water meat shield.
Giants and Dragons B10 Viability
Although you won’t see Sian in a Giants B10 team, he can actually be useful in the Dragons B10 team when fighting in the mob stages. Aside from that, there are way better monsters as attackers for both dungeons.
Arena and Guild Wars Viability
I would love to say he is viable in both arena and guild wars, but I think Theomars, Sigmarius, Galleon, Susano all will do better than Sian ever will.
I can definitely see Sian being used as a stunner, but even Lapis beats Sian in this role. As you can see, I am struggling for words to justify him as a useful monster.
Conclusion: Feed him to your other Jokers
Feed this guy. Never regretted feeding mine to my Lushen. You can also opt to keep him in your storage. Maybe someday Com2us will buff him, but I doubt they will.
