Masamoto

Masked and ready for battle, Masamoto joined the Shadowkin as part of the 2021 Christmas Fusion Event.

He becomes one of the few champions in the game that can apply an Increase Defense buff to your entire team whilst also boosting Turn Meter, making him viable to support your big AoE Defense based nuker’s such as Soulless and Tatura Rimehide. He also brings a fairly reliable AoE Decrease Attack debuff so he’ll make a good support champion for your team and especially in the Faction Wars. The shame is that his kit is a bit lacking compared to other epics.

His one downside is he loves to read requiring a total 15 books to fully max his abilities. Aim for the A3 and A2 and avoid the A1 at all costs!
