Analysis

Overview

Specimen Sez is a vicious Thief with immense potential to kill. His unique kit centered around Stunning Heroes allows him to quickly dispose of nearly any foe he may come against. The latent power of Light Storm (S3) can quickly turn him into the ultimate killing machine when placed into teams that support his innate reliance on Stuns.

Strengths

One-Shot King

Specimen Sez’s Light Storm (S3) is the focal point of his kit. It’s 100% Defense Penetration will allow you to delete almost any unit in the game as long as you meet its Stun condition. It’s power even further increases once you kill a target because the entire skill will reset potentially allowing you to 100 to 0 other heroes back to back.

Combat Ready

His Evil Claws (S2), offers an AoE Stun that also boosts self combat readiness by 50%. This will enable him to set up for the next turn in quick succession.

A Stunning Skillset

Both Dreamy Iron Mace (S1) and Evil Claws (S2) offer a crowd control effect. Dreamy Iron Mace has a 50% single target Stun while Evil Claws offers an AoE 30% Stun. This allows Specimen Sez to not only set up Light Storm, but also play a defensive debuffing role.

Weaknesses

Stun Reliant

Specimen Sez’s kit is built heavily around killing Sunned targets in order to empower Light Storm’s immense combat prowess. However, having to meet this condition is a heavy price to pay, unlike other heroes that offer lower percentages of defense penetration with no external conditions to meet.

Co-Dependent: Needs team investment in order to succeed.

In order to use Specimen Sez to his full potential, he will typically need the assistance of one or more heroes who have skills that can Stun. This can become problematic because there are so few units with consistent Stun chance ratios (some even need Skill upgrades to become consistent) leading to inconsistent gameplay patterns. (In the current PvP climate, he will also frequently need a debuffer to remove immunity.)

Skill upgrades do not offer cooldown reduction.

Light storm is a powerful S3 that has the possibility to reset whenever you kill a target with it. However, it is on a 5 turn cooldown that will not decrease with skill upgrades. Each skill upgrade only offers a damage boost, so the Stun chance will also remain the same.

His debuffs will not work on most bosses so Light Storm (S3) will not get Defense Penetration on them. This can tend to make him a more PVP focused unit.

Builds

PvP Endgame

Specimen Sez is extremely reliant on the team’s ability to Stun a high-priority target and kill them with Light Storm. You will typically want at least one other fast hero (or source) to Stun prior to him taking his turn. In this case the higher percent chance on his Stun, the better. Due to his high Defense penetration, using Defense breakers is not as necessary as ensuring he is able to utilize Light Storm in quick succession to each Stun that occurs ( since Stuns only last one turn.) This makes Rhianna & Luciella a key Artifact in abusing the number of targets he can kill in wake of multiple Stuns occurring at once. It will typically also be best to bring a fast debuffing unit since immunity sets can increasingly cause issues to the functionality of Specimen Sez’s heavily Stun reliant damage potential.

--Tip: If using a Mage on the same team, the artifact Abyssal Crown can allow for another Stun source.

Team

Core

For a slightly riskier team you can use Silver Blade Aramintha as primary setup for Specimen Sez with Auxiliary Lots going after. This can open up multiple turns in a row for Specimen Sez at the cost of a single target Stun.

Hurado plays an important role in going first and removing potential immunity Buffs from all of the enemy team, then allowing Silver Blade Aramintha to potentially Stun the entire team. Some other units who have AoE buff removal are Basar and Roman.  

Note: Someone Like General Purrgis or Zerato can easily take the spot of Silver Blade Aramintha-- as stated before the higher the Stun chance the better.

Secondary

A fairly basic setup:

  • Zerato and Leo as a sources of AoE Stun ( with a lesser chance of hitting.)

  • Falconer Kluri in case of needing to strip buffs from a single target.

  • Leo also has access to stuns on multiple skills ( Single Target and AoE) so this can help with consistency.
