Summoners War Raid Leader Skills List

Summoners War Raid Leader Skills List?by putridbeast

This is an updated version of a post I made earlier, it contains all units with usable leader skills that benefit raid teams (the most) and what they bring to the raid. I have also added recommended/ not recommended based on the guide by Syntac1. in the context that I use recommended/not, I am referring to weather they as a unit would make a good raid unit in general, and more specifically if they would make a decent leader. Those who have no recommendation are those that I think aren?t particularly terrible or great, and could work in the right comp. Those in bold are very good units and have a very desirable leader skill.

if you have any suggestions, or there is something I missed, please post in the comments.

HP leader skills

  • Tigresse, water low elemental ? 15% hp ? low stats, not recommended

Fire and Water: def break and slow ? not recommended

Light: def break and slow, cleanses all debuffs and provides 5% atb per debuff removed (listed incorrectly in game, credit to/u/RadioactivePinapple for the correction) ? good unit with poor AI, leader skill won?t benefit many

tanky units with max hp/spd based attacks

Res leader skills

Single target heal and cleanse, some damage on third ? better units out there, not recommended

Single target heal and cleanse, 2 turn invincibility ? possibly good if your squishy units are dying, generally not recommended

Def break, passive increased damage to targets with debuffs, countered by oblivion ? obtainable high resist is very desirable here, highly recommended

self atb increase and high AoE heal, one of the best monsters for the raid

double atb reducer, third skill resets the atb to 0

  • Hathor, wind desert queen ? 41% res

atk break on first, reduce atb by 75% (long cd) ? not as many debuffs as her sisters, but the leader skill makes her a highly recommended unit

  • Bearman ? 30% for respective elements

Wind: atk buff and remove 2 debuffs, decrease atb 30%
