Skill 3: Ancient Power (Passive): Increases the damage inflicted on enemies with harmful effects by 20% and makes the enemy oblivious for 2 turns(Boss monsters excluded) with each attack. Passive skills aren’t activated in oblivion state. [Automatic Effect]
Tesarion is a utility monster that is very good at silencing monsters with passives on their 3rd skill. The annoying Veromos and Camilla will not have their passives activated. He can also be used as a damage dealer if you choose to build him as one.
For a beginner build, you can go Swift/Focus(Spd/Atk%/Hp%) for some damage and health. This way, he won’t be that squishy and can take hits and also deal some damage.
Advanced users should try out Violent/Revenge(Spd/Hp%/Acc%) where this is primarily used as a support to silence monsters with passive and also inflict defense debuff or continuous damage. This works wonders against Veromos in arena defense.
For a damage build, Violent/Blade(Spd/Crit D%/Atk%) is a very viable one. You will deal tonnes of damage just like Theomars unless you meet water monsters.
Tower of Ascension Viability
With Tesarion being a hybrid monster, he is not the most useful monster for ToA. He can deal continuous damage and apply defense debuff, but I feel that Veromos offers more and Belladeon is used more often. You can still use him for stages where you meet the Water or Light Valkyrja, where their passives are hard to deal with.
Giants and Dragons B10 Viability
Tesarion isn’t really useful in either Giants or Dragons. Sure, he has continuous damage, but his 3rd skill isn’t utilized to its max potential here(unless you really want to silence the water golem’s passive!). Plus he has elemental disadvantage in Giants B10.
Arena and Guild Wars Viability
In the arena and guild wars, Tesarion is primarily used against Jultan, Darion, Perna, Hwadam, Camilla and Veromos. His ability to silence passives will really turn tides in your favor. Having high accuracy will help land it more often.
If he is built as an attacker, you can pair him with Chloe and buffer like Megan to do some good damage.
Conclusion: Keep and 6 Star
Tesarion is a niche monster that is useful primarily in end game arena and guild wars against monsters with OP passives. However, you can build him as an attacker and use him in regular dungeons and ToA if you choose to.
