Uses in PVP

Put Shadowblade token 0 Shadowblade in the first slot/make him move first in both PVP offence and defence so he can use his From the Shadows Icon From the Shadows attack as soon as possible. In defence this way Shadowblade can counter attacks from Zen token 0 Zen and Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond. In offence he can eliminate the threat of Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond or Zen token 0 Zen when they are in the second fast slot, e.g. Tsume token 0 Tsume (normal), NubNub token 0 Chief NubNub (slow), Kai Makani token 0 Kai Makani (1st fast), Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond (2nd fast).

Don't forget to give Shadowblade the Blessing of the Seeker.

Notes and Tips

  • If you decide to use Shadowblade token 0 Shadowblade in your team, try to increase his ATK as much as possible and fully ascend him. That way he will deal tons of killing blows and gain energy with his Your Loss My Gain, and repeatedly do Special Attacks.
  • From the Shadows Icon From the Shadows will CRIT even when Shadowblade token 0 Shadowblade is Diseased (Disease negates CRIT).
  • Pairing Shadowblade (in his second ascension) with a team of Assassins will make it extremely annoying for the enemy team as ALL OF THEM will have a boosted Dodge Chance for 1 turn, making them receive very little damage.
