Shinobi.IO: Satsu Kei - Nuker CC Type Build Weapons and Pets


Here's an example build and how to play guide for Satsu Kei in the Ninja Online Battle Royale IO android mobile game - Shinobi.IO.

NOTE: Before anything else, please refer to our Shinobi.IO: Beginner's FAQ, Tips, and Guide for quick match up and battle tips, because I will no longer explain the basics here, thanks.

How To Get Satsu Kei

   - Easy to get early game from Gold Chests and Daily Login Rewards,
   - He got some decent stats but kinda lacks some HP, so be careful and don't dive into clashes or open area alone.
Shinobi.IO Satsu Kei

Special Skill: Thunder Dash

   - A lightning dash with thunder claw.
   - Damage: 200 (Line AoE including nearby enemies)
   - Effect: 50% chance to stun enemy.

   - Make this skill as your finisher move to secure your kills. Aim for those dying ones or enemies that are close to each other. If you have a full Chakra Bar though, fire your Special Skill then recharge again using normal attacks.

Passive Skill: Attack has 10% chance to stun

   - This is where Satsu Kei can also shine because his stuns can really help set-up combos for you and the whole team. Note that his passive skill only works with normal attacks.

Team Battle: Nuker/CC Type Build

Nuker Type Build: Phoenix Star (Kunai Weapon)

   - Fairly easy to get from Gold Chests.
   - The best thing about this weapon is that it can increase the potential of any character that wields it!
Shinobi.IO Phoenix Star (Kunai)

How To Use in Team Battle:

   - Use Phoenix Star's normal attacks at close range to hit all shurikens. This will help you deal nice damages and charge up your character's Special Skill fast.
   - Best done against stunned/slowed targets, so every time you see your stun procs, quickly move closer and spam more normal attacks, then finish with your Thunder Dash if needed.

   - Even better if you can do it without relying on targeting lines (just tap/click to quickly unleash).
   - Doing this method would also increase the chance to stun/burn (or both) your targets!

   - Phoenix  Strike (Weapon Skill)
   - A nice long ranged weapon skill, but only use this for nuking enemies from a distance when you have low HP, otherwise just focus on your normal attacks during Team Battles.

   - Weapon's Passive Skill: 10% chance to burn
   - Also a handful bonus, that could get you some kills!
   - Note that this passive skill only works with normal attacks.

   - Pet to Use: Use Any Pet.
   - Satsu Kei is kinda squishy though so you really need to rely on his stuns. Get a Pet that increases survivability if you like, or go for Chakra/Chakra regen for glass cannon build.

CC Type Build: Raijin Kunai (Kunai Weapon)

   - Fairly easy to get from Gold Chests.
   - Note: If timed right (right after they activate their skills), stuns can actually cancel your opponent's skills and restart it's cool-down!
Shinobi.IO Raijin Kunai

How To Use in Team Battle:

   - Your role is to use your normal attacks to stun or stun lock enemies (crowd control) and support your team. Stay hidden if possible and always stay behind your teammates to avoid incoming damages.

   - Thunder Wrath (Weapon Skill)
   - Only use from a safe distance when you are low on HP.
   - Optional: If you see a group of enemies especially during the first clash, use this but make sure to hit or else it would be a big waste of Chakra.

   - Weapon's Passive Skill: 10% chance to stun
   - With Satsu Kei's passive skill, stuns should proc more often with this.
   - Note that this passive skill only works with normal attacks.

   - Pet to Use: Use Any Pet.
   - Get a Pet that increases survivability if you like, or go for Chakra/Chakra regen for glass cannon build.

Other Weapons (Including Future Weapons)

   - You may also use any weapons that can do multiple hits to a single target (including Sword) or area, and as long that you can charge your character's Special Skill fast.
   - Watch out for new weapons that are similar or even stronger than the ones above!

Battle Royale: CC Type Build

Raijin Kunai (Kunai Weapon)

How To Use in Battle Royale:

   - Similar play style (refer above Team Battle: Raijin Kunai section), use this to attack and lock, or stun targets from a distance, especially enemies that are hiding from those bushes.
   - Charge up using normal attacks then use Satsu Kei's Special Skill to finish off opponents!

   - Using this method would allow you to go aggressive right from the start and finish the match fast. Just avoid getting ganked and focus on picking 1 on 1 fights.

   - Pet to Use: Use Any Pet
   - Survivability Pets, or Pets that can inflict Status Ailments (even at 5%, multi hits increases that chance).

   - *Ratings are mostly based under "NO Elemental Advantage", so DPS ranks below can go higher when used against their counter element.

Support Characters

   - DO NOT limit your team by only using high DPS units, also consider using Support units like Debuffers.
   - Characters that focuses on inflicting status effects like Stuns are also effective as support/utility units, depending on your current character pool and/or battle situation.

Rankings Are Based On:

Lvl 80 Character Stats (Lvl 100 for Free Characters).
   - Note that Ranking Event limited characters will get higher stat bonuses than Gacha characters when limit breaking.

SS3 Attack Duration (Seconds):
   - SS3 Attack Duration in seconds (6* characters above will adapt in-game time, not real time).
   - #.#sec* =  Average Time. Dual Wielders (and some units) will get Max/Min speed depending on combos (10~50) but will only consider their average speed and DPS.
   - (Hits/Sec) determines how fast they can generate combos "per target".

Ranking Event - Burst DPS:
   - Overall Damage Output/Sec (including buffs, defense debuffs, non-elemental damage multipliers, crit damage, and more). Tested on a null enemy (no elemental advantage) with same armor rating, without gears.
   - Combo Generation and "how easy" SS3s can be spammed will affect DPS Ratings.
   - Note: DPS rating may increase if used against their counter element.

Ranking Event - Mob Clearing:
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) and Speed.

Floor Clearing Event - Mob Clearing
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) + Survival Capabilities without relying on Healers. Basically, units without any survivability skills, should be paired with Healers to increase/maintain their effectiveness.
   - Based on Floor 60 onwards mob difficulty.
   - Note: Rating may increase if used against their counter element.

Floor Clearing Event - vs Boss
   - Heavily based on their Damage Output (DPS will not be used here), Tankiness and Survival Capabilities. So, units with very high Damage Output with limited durability can still find their way to a decent rank, since we can still defeat Bosses by dodging attacks.
   - Based on Floor 60 onwards Boss difficulty.
   - Note: Rating may increase if used against their counter element. Units without any survivability skills, should be paired with Healers to increase/maintain their effectiveness.

Overall Rankings
   - Heavily based on DPS rating (Ranking Events) and Floor Clearing vs Boss (Damage Output and Survivability). So units without Self Healing or Auto-Heal are in a big disadvantage.
   - We will not consider Mob Clearing as ranking basis for now because it would be unfair for other limited ranged units.
   - NOTE: Support Units that can buff, debuff enemies, or heal your team won't affect their rankings for now, since these characters' effectiveness also depends on their teammates' strengths.

   - Please note that these Tier Lists are for reference only, ranking basis is a work in progress and will never be final. It's not 100% accurate, but we'll do our best to polish the guides.

Other Helpful Notes

Character Rankings: Order List

   - Ordered By: Category > Combo Generation (Hits/Sec) > Faster Weapon Type > Name
   - Characters under same rank are not always treated as on par, because they also have different roles, which will also require different playing styles.

Weapon Type Weaknesses (Floor Clearing Event)

   - To find which characters are effective to a certain floor, refer below.
   - Slash - Swords and Dual Blades
   - Effective against soft-bodied enemies such as Mantises, Slimes and Gerberas (plant monsters).
   - Not effective against tough-skinned enemies such as Lizardmen.
   - Strike - Mace and Guns
   - Effective against hard-bodied enemies such as Elementals and Skeletons.
   - Not effective against soft-bodied enemies such as Mantises, Slimes and Gerberas (plant monsters).
   - Thrust/Pierce - Rapiers, Lances, Daggers, and Bows.
   - Effective against tough-skinned enemies such as Lizardmen.
   - Not effective against hard-bodied enemies such as Elementals and Skeletons.
   - Magic - Rods
   - Deals more damage to a certain element than the usual elemental affinity bonus damage.

Elemental Bonuses and Weaknesses

   - Fire > Wind > Earth > Water > Fire (Holy < > Dark)
   - Note that some selected characters have a Battle Skill or Skill Slot that increases their damages against Neutral element enemies.
   - Element that is in disadvantage can only deal 75% damage, so also consider that unit's current DPS rank to go down.

Ranking Event - Mob Clearing:
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) and Speed.
   - We will not consider Mob Clearing as ranking basis for now because it would be unfair for other limited ranged units.

Quick Match Up and Battle Tips

Quick Battle FAQs and Tips

Attacks and Chakras

   - Normal Attacks, Dash and Weapon Skills consumes Chakra (regenerates over time).
   - Special Skill doesn't use Chakra but has a long cool-down period.

   - TIP: If your HP is low, spend all your Chakra because you'll regain them anyway once you re-spawn.

Passive Skills

   - Character specific Passive Skills (ex: 10% chance to burn) only applies to normal attacks.
   - Passive Skills from Weapons (ex: 10% chance to poison) doesn't apply to any Special Skills, it would only work with normal attacks.

   - TIP: Normal attacks that gives multi hits like Raijin Kunai and Phoenix Star gives higher chance to proc these status effects (tested with Phoenix Star: 1 hit shuriken vs 3 hits shuriken).
   - TIP: Normal attacks that can do multi hits also have a higher chance to proc 1 or more status effects on a single target, if all attack hits (ex: stun and burn).

   - Having 2 Passive Skills of the same type (ex: 2x 10% chance to stun) doesn't stack, but having 2x 10% does have a difference (tested with Satsu Kei+Raijin Kunai vs White Ninja+Raijin Kunai).

How To Do Jump Attacks with Special Skills?

   - Simultaneously tap or click [Dash] + [Character's Special Attack].
   - Dash would still require Chakra though but this method would enable you to jump towards clashes and unleash your Special Attack, best for AoE type skills.
   - Some characters can do this by using "Hold and Drag", like Sakura.

How To Charge Your Shinobi's Special Skill

   - TIP: To boost your special skill's cool-down length, just go and damage enemies with any attacks, even better if you can kill them too (gives huge boost), or at at least hit multiple targets!

   - Use normal attacks that are easy to hit, and can do multiple hits to targets (like Phoenix Star) or AoE attacks (like Bombs). Other weapons like Swords are also ok depending on your preference, as long that you can charge your Special Skill fast.

Weapon Types

   - Weapons have their own Special Attacks and Passive Skills, check them out from the customization screen.
Shinobi.IO Weapons
   - Shurikens: Long ranged and hard to hit but some of them can really dish out damages when used at close range!
   - Swords: Melee ranged, and can hit all targets in range.
   - Bombs: AoE range (hold and drag attack button to throw farther), easy to hit and can be thrown above obstacles. It requires higher Chakra per attack though.
   - Special: Weapons that are not classified above, and have different attack patterns.

   - TIP: "Hold and Drag" any attacks or skills to check there range, AoE, or how they work, but take note though that dragging too much could also make you vulnerable from enemy attacks. Try to use use instant attacks (just tap/click on attack button) depending on your weapon or skill even if it would sacrifice some accuracy for speed.

Battle Items

   - Items may spawn at the center of the map like Speed or Food items, note that the next item spawns 10 seconds after getting the existing item.

Leveling Up: Earning EXP

   - You can gain 5 EXP Rewards every time you win a match, 1 EXP if you lose.
   - Leveling Up would give you rewards that contains random shards (check Mail).

Battle Royale: Survival Mode

Healer Type

   - Focus on gearing up your Shinobi for 1 on 1 fights, and if possible, avoid getting ganked.
   - Any Shinobi is doable, but would recommend using weapons that can heal you like Heal Bomb or Soul Katana (or similar weapon) to increase survivability.
   - If you want to play aggressively, just make sure that you check your chakra to activate your heal anytime.
   - Speed is also key when playing Battle Royale to out maneuver Swords and slow moving enemies.
   - Healer type would almost guarantee you to get top 3, kinda slow but recommended for beginners.

Nuker Type

   - It is also possible not to use healing skills, but it would require more player skill. One example is a nuker type build that can stun targets (ex: Raijin Kunai), or deal massive damages!
   - Focus on gearing up your Shinobi for 1 on 1 fights, and if possible, avoid getting ganked.
   - Take on low HP targets for a quick kill.
   - Speed is also key when playing Battle Royale to out maneuver Swords and slow moving enemies.
   - If done right, you can finish a match around 1 minute!

Other Quick Battle Tips

   - Replenish your HP by getting food items located at the center of the map if needed, best done once there are only 3 survivors left. Try to take control of this area to avoid other players getting these items.

   - TIP: Battle Royale can give you faster EXP and Gold per battle (need at least top 3).
   - TIP: While waiting for the number of players to thin down, spam your Emoticon to complete the "The Joker" achievement.

Team Battle: Best Played with Friends!

   - Yup, it is so much easier to play with friends to avoid getting teamed-up with bots and non-active players, who stays and do nothing...
Quick Battle Tips

How To Add Friends?

   - To play with friends, you must add them first via Friends section (search ID or Name), or add other players (if available from results screen) after every team battles.

Team Battle Quick Tips

   - Pick which role you like to play to help you decide which Shinobi to use.
   - Example Team Roles: Nuker (deals high damages), Crowd Control (inflicts stun and debuffs), Support Healer (mainly heals the team), Tank (mostly in front to take damages), or you can go Hybrid (a combination of roles).

   - MVP: The player who can rake the highest Total Points will become the MVP. Most of the time, it's the one who can get lots of kills and assists.
