Summoners War Best Nat 4
Your Best Buddies

Can’t get the Nat 5 that you want? Worry no more, 4 stars are here to save you!

     4-star monsters are the next best thing that you can get after Natural 5-star monsters. Although their basic stats are slightly lower compared to 5-stars, it doesn’t mean that they are inferior. Most of them are even more powerful than Nat5s due to their unique skillset and uses and even with a low investment they can significantly make your gameplay so much better. Here are the 4-star monsters that you should build:


10. [WIND] Dryad, Mellia

Double Mellia is very popular in farming Dungeons currently.


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

    Mellia is a monster you want to get when you start playing. She earned a spot in the meta DoTs team that clears High level dungeons in under a minute. She is an irreplaceable unit for Giants B12 DoTs Team and she is also very useful in TOA and helps you clear stages.

  • You don’t need to evolve her to 6 stars. Even in her 5-star form she is an awesome dotter.
  • She doesn’t need a high rune quality to work.
  • Her passive allows her to rain DoTs on the enemy when she has enough Accuracy.


Rune Recommendation:    

Despair / Focus

9. [WATER] Boomerang Warrior, Sabrina & [FIRE] Chakram Dancer, Shaina

Any variety of Chakram Dancer and Boomerang Warrior works!


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

Although they are two different monsters, they are sharing this ranking spot because they are twins! The twins just don't work with just one because when they fight an enemy, they attack together. They really excel in dungeons, especially in Dragons B10 and Necropolis B10. Sabrina’s passive allows the twins to receive 20% less damage from enemies that has beneficial effects while Shaina’s passive allows her to consistently decrease the enemies’ defense making them powerful damage dealers in many contents of the game.

  • By being on the same team, they can double their initial damage when they are attacking.
  • Their passives can be applied with each other so if they attack together, they have two functional passives.
  • They are not hard to rune and can help you progress in many contents of the game.

8. [WATER] Pirate Captain, Galleon

Make sure to pay attention to Galleon's Accuracy or else he will...


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

Galleon is a convenient unit to have. He is usable in many contents of the game because of his 3rd skill. This skill is an AoE defense decreasing effect and at the same time, it boosts all your allies' Attack power. This specific support in his skill is needed by many AoE monsters that don't ignore the enemies’ defense. He is a go-to buffer in Dragons B10 and also a perfect pair for the Tiana combo in Arena. 

  • His Leader skill is very important in Guild Wars because only few units can offer 24% Speed boost in that content.
  • He is compatible with many Arena and Guild War cleave Teams
  • There are many rune options and alternatives for him making him a flexible unit.

Orion is well known for soloing powerful Nat5s like Perna and Raki.


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

    Orion is the most annoying opponent in the game because you just can’t predict what he’ll do next. His 3rd skill which is called ‘Harmless Prank’ is more harmful than harmless. With this skill, He can remove a beneficial effect, stun, decrease the enemies’ defense, and at the same time boost his teams’ attack bar gauge making their turns cycle faster. He has two more annoying skills which made him a very popular unit especially in Guild Wars. 

  • His first skill allows him to get additional turns even when he isn’t runed with a violent set making him able to solo strong monsters.
  • His skillset is suited to most cleave teams for Arena, RTA and Guild Wars.
  • You don’t need complicated runes to make him work. You only need to focus on his speed. The faster the better.

People usually build multiple Skoguls for Guild Siege offense and Defense.

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

    Skogul is an HP type damage dealer that can easily wipe out an entire team. His skill, which is called Atlas Stone, allows him to deal fixed AoE damage based on his Max Hp. Because of this skill, Skogul ignores any complex damage reduction mechanics and just throws stones with pure damage. This makes him a very powerful unit in many contents in the game like RTA, Guild Wars and Raids. 

  • Crit rate and Crit Damage doesn’t apply on Skogul making him easier to rune compared to most of the damage dealers in the game.
  • You can build him with pure HP stats which not only amplifies his damage but also makes him tankier.
