Hello everyone and welcome to my 47th analysis, this time featuring Kaih the Eradicator.
Overview: Being a VIP and having access to Bulwark makes dealing with this monster using status effects risky, especially considering the fact that his massive damage output necessitates you getting rid of him as quickly as possible. This is an amazing thing for an attacker, since it draws attention from other, more pivotal monsters to yourself. Access to Ignite is also a great bonus for Kaih, as dealing 20% per tick can be just what he needs to kill a monster in one go. However, Kaih is considerably slow even when compared to other attackers, and his Base Life makes his job as distraction a bit less successful, since the attacker needs to not die too quickly.
-Eradicator Blade/Annihilator Blade/Destruction Strike
Runes: 2 Strength 1 Speed
Mutant Rune options: Strength&Life, Speed&Life
Relics: Amulets and Swords
Desolation Strike is a massively powerful nuke that will make short work of targets that are not too beefy. Sun Fire and Star Flare are both AOEs, and while Sun Fire technically has more damage output with Ignite under normal circumstances, Star Flare goes better with damage boosts, plus it is more effective vs. Hardened variants. The last slot is up to personal preference and the enemy team: Eradicator Blade has the highest effective damage but has 1 CD, Annihilator Blade has less power but no CD, and Destruction Strike doesn't rely on Tortures and is unresisted, making it better vs. Fire monsters.
2 Strength 1 Speed with Life Mutations is the standard spread on attackers. 3 Strength is also notable since Bulwark is a solid protective layer against debuffs, and Desolation Strike will likely kill any target without Life Runes with this spread, at the cost of being prey to almost all other attackers.
