How to Use this Hero

To improve Phemus, increasing his Stars will help him significantly as a character. After all his DEF, ATK and Health are what makes him effective as a character. Ascending once is also a must if he is planned to be used as a taunter. Second ascension is also very powerful, as 25px ??wild swing?? is a helpful and powerful tool. Luckily, as a 1 star character, he is quite easy to ascend.

Skill Breakdown

Phemus' role in a team is to serve as an acceptable taunter and a strong damage dealer. Slow Icon Slow is a helpful trait, as it gives him some of the highest ATK and Health values in the game. It will, however, make him attack last. The main thing this will mean in campaign is you must be careful if you plan to have Phemus taunting, as you will probably have to take a wave of attacks beforehand. He also has the Magical Icon Magical trait. This makes him very effective at taunting against many magic wielding enemies. In addition, he also has a unique trait, Turn a Blind Eye Icon Turn a Blind Eye . This is by far one of his best features, as he is completely immune to Taunt, except for the DEF/Health buff that comes from the power. This can be, in the right situations, devastating. 

Phemus' first ability is Earthquake Icon Earthquake , a powerful attack which allows him to deal a lot of damage to one target and do small amounts of after shock damage. The initial hit of Earthquake is devastating, and can actually one shot a fully ascended IGOROK token 0 IGOROK if a CRIT is achieved. The aftershock, while doing little damage to every character, is not to be considered useless either. Small amounts of damage are still damage, and that can be very effective against the right people. For example, it can get rid of Julius token icon Julius' Fully Rested Icon Fully Rested or Augustus the paladin token 0 Augustus's or Yasmin token 0 Yasmin Bloom's Aegis powers. Just be careful however. As the attack hits everyone, including your own heroes due to aftershock, it can leave Phemus effected by characters's passive stats, such as Phenol token 0 Phenol Thoxian's Poison Skin or Ekko token Ekko's Electric Skin, if they are either friend or foe. 

While Phemus isn't the best taunter in the game, with a high starred character or a healer he can be very effective. He has a lot of health, and as a result can last a while if being attacked by the enemy. Having a healer backing him up, particularly Yasmin token 0 Yasmin Bloom or NubNub token 0 Chief NubNub, can have him lasting a very long time, taunting the enemies for your team. 

25px ??wild swing?? has a lot of potential to do a great amount of damage to enemy heroes. Unlike Earthquake Icon Earthquake , 25px ??wild swing?? is a physical attack, making it much more effective on characters such as Ekko token Ekko, NubNub token 0 Chief NubNub or Tsume token 0 Tsume. This basically makes 25px ??wild swing?? a Physical and more deadly version of Earthquake Icon Earthquake . However, you cannot pick the target enemy of 25px ??wild swing??, so it is best to use it when all enemies have high health, that way, you avoid killing enemies who are already near death.

Synergy With Other Heroes

Using heroes who buff other Nature Heroes will benefit Phemus a lot. The health buff from Willow token 0 Willow Swift will make him a more effective tank, and the ATK buff from Tsume token 0 Tsume will make him a stronger damage dealer. Taking all three will lead to Phemus being a very powerful character.

In addition, CRIT chances are immensely powerful when combined with Phemus. Ekko token Ekko, Julius token icon Julius can give him a temporary but high CRIT buff, while ascended Rocky token 0 Rocky the Shiitake can give a buff with no requirements for power. 

If Phemus is taunting, he is reliant on a Healer. NubNub token 0 Chief NubNub or Yasmin token 0 Yasmin Bloom work well for this, however a tag team between two weaker Healers works well too, such as Augustus the paladin token 0 Augustus and Emily token 0 Archangel Emily or Dagrund token Dagrund Blacksmoke and Sifu token Sifu Jianzhi.

Uses in PVP

Phemus has a unique place in PvP. Nimriel token 0 Lady Nimriel is a common sight in PvP, and, being a Nature Tank, Phemus is easily beaten by her. Due to this, Phemus is generally not the greatest of all defenders. That said, a Phemus with a high start rating or fully ascended can seem like a lesser threat than characters like Tsume token 0 Tsume or Bovus token 0 Bovus El Doro, so Phemus can use this to sneak in his high damaging powers. Attacking with Phemus has a lot of potential. If combined with a CRIT buff character, Phemus can one shot most enemies with Earthquake Icon Earthquake , including the feared IGOROK token 0 IGOROK. He also works well on teams that have taunters, as he can be used to damage the weaker enemies that were relying on the now ineffective taunter to protect them.
