    Hi, Reina user here.
    I want to write a guide about Reina because it seems that people rarely discuss about Reina and the old guide seems pretty outdated https://kingsraidforum.com/threads/guide-reina-the-lightning-flash.87/.
    I already transcended my Reina to T5 and have been using her for about one year as my main team so I think I already get enough personal experiences to write about Reina.
    I asked for permission to write this guide to @XiongZi and she/ he said okay. So let's get started! :)

    Reina
    (Assassin)
    [​IMG]
    Lightning Flash
    A mercenary who wields a light, one-handed sword. Dodges attacks with nimble movements and pierces the enemy with the sharp end of her sword.


    VA: Yuuki Takada


    You can obtain her via Hero's Inn/ Hero Ticket/ Special Shop.


    Role: Single Target DPS
    Unique Weapon:
    Lightning Flash, Livatis
    Upon a Crit Hit, ATK Spd is increased by 80 and Crit DMG is increased by 20% for 15 sec. Can be stacked up to 5 times max.
    [​IMG]
    Unique Treasure:
    Medal of Swiftness
    [Shooting Star] DMG is increased by 20% and upon Crit Hit, mana is recovered by 200.
    Master's Ring
    [Sharp End] Increases ATK Boost by 50% and recovers additional 40 MP upon a Crit Hit for the skill's duration.

    Vespa introduces her as an Assassin Class. Reina is a Physical Type hero that focused as Single Target DPS with no-AoE skills at all. Reina especially excels in Boss Battle and other PvE contents. PvP wise? Not that good, because she lacks the ability to hit backliner when used in Arena.

    And finally, now I can recommend her. {NEW UPDATE September 2018}
    She is one of best single target DPS after the recent Patch Note [September 20th Update] https://www.plug.game/kingsraid/1030449/posts?menuId=9#/posts/14487
    [​IMG]


    Skill:

    Skill 2: Sharp End
    Increase ??? of ATK for 20 sec, and increase Crit Hit chance by 500. This effect cannot be dispelled. {NEW UPDATE September 2018}

    [​IMG]


    Mana Cost: passive
    Cooldown: 0s
    Buff Time: 10s
    Books:

    1. ATK Increasion rate is increased by 10%.
    2. ATK Increasion rate is increased by 15%.
    3. DEF Penetration is increased by 100 for the duration of this skill.

    Once you 5* your hero, you can start to transcend them at Hall of Heroes and pick transcendence skills.

    My recommendation below is based on DPS build.

    Transcend Skill:
    Transcend 1
    • ATK Up (Recommended for DPS)
    • HP Up
    • Def Up
    • Crit Resist Up
    Transcend 2
    • Target Weakness (Recommended for DPS)
    • Swift and Nimble (Optional for survivability)
    • Tactical Foresight (Optional for survivability)
    • Opportune Strike (Optional for DPS)
    Transcend 3 & 4
    • Butterfly [Light] (Optional DPS for long duration battle (unpractical, need Burning Brazier of Elf for easy execution))
    • Butterfly [Dark]
    • Sharp End [Light]
    • Sharp End [Dark] (Recommended for DPS on high Crit Reina and against boss) (Super Important)
    • Shooting Star [Light] (Recommended for Burst Damage)
    • Shooting Star [Dark]
    • Lucky Child [Light] (Recommended for DPS against non-hero enemies)
    • Lucky Child [Dark] (Optional for survivability)
    Transcend 5
    • Reina [Light] (Recommended for DPS and a bit of survivability)
    • Reina [Dark] (Recommended for DPS on high ATK Speed Reina)

    Gear:
    • Lava set
    • Fire Dragon set
    • Manticore set
    Personal recommendation: Use 3 ATK runes.

    Gear Stat Priority:
    • ATK
    • Crit (Achieve 100% total Crit)
    • Crit Damage
    • Lifesteal (Optional)
    • 2 Penetration (Optional if you don't take Target Weakness)
    • ATK Speed (Optional, depend on level of your Unique Weapon)
    Personal recommendation: Get one line of Lifesteal stat from Dragon Enchant Scroll now that it's easier to get.

    Recommended Runes:

    • ATK
    • Crit Damage
    • Crit
    • Lifesteal (Optional)
    • Penetration (Optional)

    Artifact Synergy:

    Angry Pumpkin Head
    All DMG taken is reduced by 10% and deal 10% more DMG to enemies.
    Blessing of Earth
    When there is 1 enemy, ATK is boosted by 40%.
    Burning Brazier of Elf
    Upon attacking an enemy, there is a 10% chance to recover 1 MP.
    Dice of Magical Letters
    Upon attacking an enemy, deal 400 % M. DMG for a 3 % chance.
    Orbs of Contract
    Every 7 sec, increase MDEF by 1% of ATK. This effect stacks up to 6 times.

    Hero Synergy:
    • Phillop: Really good combo for Reina. As Phillop can protect Reina from taking damage directly, as well as unleash Reina's full potential as DPS (by reducing PDEF of enemies) and give Reina's Skill 1 more accuracy (by reducing PDodge of enemies).
    • Frey: The only thing you don't want from Reina is her skill getting interrupted (especially her Skill 3). Frey's shield can prevent that.
    • Laias: Laias can give Reina more survivability from M Damage. As well as give her more mana for faster skill spamming.
    • Loman: Loman is Phillop+Frey+Laias combined so it's good for her.
    • Priscilla: Reina is single target. By having Priscilla, you can give your team more AoE damage. Priscilla can buff Reina's DPS too. And gather enemies that scattered by Reina, LOL.
    • Mediana: Mediana can give Reina more survivability from P Damage. As well as give her buff and not get one hit killed by enemies.

    Non-Conventional Build:
    • Dodge Build: This build sometimes can work in Arena. Example of Reina with Dodge Build:
    • Tanker Build: By adding DEF stats, Dodge stats, and Tough runes. Not recommended at all as Reina always scattered the enemies. They pass through Reina and then they attack your backliners.


    Hope this guide can help. :)

    That also can do. ATK Speed is never a problem for Reina.

    Thanks a lot for this complete guide ! it helps ;)

    Just a question about your personal advice and update for the stats, what make you think that full ATK, ATK Speed, Crit, Crit Damage are better than a mix of Lifesteal and Penetration ? :)

    Thanks!

    It will give optimum damage coz you can maximize all main DPS stats to 11%.

    On other hand, having 11% lifesteal isn't necessary, so better get lifesteal by using Dragon Enchant Scroll coz it's harder getting 11% DPS stats using Dragon Enchant Scroll.

    The optimum use of penetration is 45%. Because if higher than that, penetration gets penalty (diminishing return). And with the new update of Vespa changing 10% penetration to 25% (Lucky Child) if you combine it with Target Weakness perk, it easily hit optimum penetration (25% (Lucky Child) + 20% (Target Weakness) = 45%).

    Hope this helps.

    Question regarding Reina.
    Does her UT impact much of her performance highly or barely?

    Her UT is "good to have", not "a must have".
    My UT is still 0* and it boosts Reina DPS about 15%.

    I use 4 parts BD or 4 parts Manticore. It's okay, but it's not gonna be optimum.

    You can get 100% crit rate without Fire Dragon set. By using Dragon Enchant Scrolls + Treasure.

    Do I want 100% crit rate?

    Sharp End gives me +50%, so isn't having more than 50% wasted?

    50% Crit from Sharp End will be changed to 100% Crit Damage if you take T3 Dark from Transcendence.

    You can "not-use" T3 Dark and using low crit, but it means you need to manually keep Sharp End in "always active" state.
    The problem is, some enemies can CC or Dispel your Sharp End so you can't keep it "always active." If Sharp End is not activated you will lose half of your Crit and a lot of your damage.

    You want atleast 75%+ Crit from your stat because Reina skill 1 and 3 give you 25% Crit
    (75% + 25% = 100%)

    UT2 is for DPS boost.
    UT3 is for Burst damage.

    UT2 boosts your mana gain in every star awakening.
    UT3 boosts your damage in every star awakening.

    The performances are more or less the same. It's just a matter of preference. But I personally like UT3 better.
