Summoners War Raid Leader Skills List

Summoners War Raid Leader Skills List by putridbeast

This is an updated version of a post I made earlier, it contains all units with usable leader skills that benefit raid teams (the most) and what they bring to the raid. I have also added recommended/ not recommended based on the guide by Syntac1. in the context that I use recommended/not, I am referring to weather they as a unit would make a good raid unit in general, and more specifically if they would make a decent leader. Those who have no recommendation are those that I think aren’t particularly terrible or great, and could work in the right comp. Those in bold are very good units and have a very desirable leader skill.

if you have any suggestions, or there is something I missed, please post in the comments.

  • Praha – 41% res

self atb increase and high AoE heal, one of the best monsters for the raid
