Summoners War Best Nat 3
Beloved Nat 3's can fight with you too!

No Nat 5? No Lightning? No problem! Nat 3 monsters can help you out!


Beginners often discard 3-star monsters for the simple reason that they aren’t rare enough. Although rarer monsters can be more powerful, we often forget that 3-star monsters are easier to build and are very obtainable when you are starting the game. It can help you progress faster while waiting for premium monsters to be summoned. Unlike other games, 3-star monsters are very popular in Summoners War. Here are the top  3 star monsters in the game right now:


10. [WATER] Werewolf, Vigor

Vigor + Molly Combo brings a total of 65% Crit Resistance making it a direct counter to most cleave teams.

  • Dungeons: 3/5   
  • RTA: 5/5    
  • Arena: 4/5   
  • TOA: 4/5   
  • Guild Content: 5/5

Vigor before his 2nd Awakening is already a usable 3 star monster but when he got upgraded, he became one of the meta monsters especially in PvP contents. He is an Hp type monster that can deal massive damage according to his Max HP. For this reason, he is often built with a lot of Hp and Speed. His role is not limited to being a damage dealer, he is also a Super tank that can give Anti-crit buff, speed buff and he can also heal his allies making him a very efficient monster for PvP.

  • He has high base speed which allows players to rune him a lot easier that Nat 5 monsters
  • He is a staple in Guild War defense especially when paired with Molly or other bruisers.
  • He can decrease the enemies’ defense before he hits them with his 3rd skill instantly doubling the damage he provides.

9. [DARK] Martial Cat, Miho

Ideally, violent is the best way to rune Miho but vampire will give her sustainability to solo her enemies.


Dungeons: 3/5   RTA: 4/5    Arena: 4/5   TOA: 3/5   Guild Content: 5/5

Miho is used purely for PvP contents. Her passive allows her to counterattack with a critical hit and a stun making her good in both offense and defense. Additionally, She cannot die if she is attacked with a critical hit. Although Miho is a 3 star monster she is Tier S in all PvP contents and ranks better than most Nat 5 monsters.
