@Clackers said in What is the best way to use Rabies?:
He basically burns himself and reduces his own damage after [almost] every one of his moves.
Could he be paired with someone like Bo Tai, who can give him immunity to burn, and a monster who can remove negative effects such as...Crissandre (Curse Cleaner)?
Would Rabies then be OP?
I don't think that any monster than is dependent on another monster to just function normally is OP. This is pairing Caillech with Shi Hou. Her Protection of the Northern Winds keeps his Aura of Devastation from stunning him.
Also in Rabies case the fact that it could be a mix of different damage debuffs he can give himself (burn, bleed,regular damage) I would say he is not OP. His special is a suicide move, which makes him useless in my mind on defense for arena or wars. Several monsters have a sacrificial move (Kassia, The Sentinel), what good does it do to give someone a free kill even IF the AI plays them well?
Lead of speed war and... destroyer of coastal cities (that don't have multi-player defense teams).
