Role Summary

Name Best Archetype(s) PVE PVP Democalypse
PVE PVP Offense Defense Prelim Boss
Shiva.jpg Shiva
Red Red 4 1 1 5 3
  • High STR, AGI and LUK paired with innate Serial Killer and Vorpal Blade make him an effective Physical Sweeper.
  • Good candidate for the Hell Gongen team as it patches out his biggest weakness - lack of early Phys Pierce.
  • Great set of Panels, especially Panel 3 which provides insane MP-cost reduction and Panel 4 which gives him Phys Pierce.
  • Has three sets of Drain resistances and no weakness if Teal, making him an ideal teammate for Rama or Demiurge.
  • Pralaya removes Almighty Tetrakarn such as the chain effect from Lord of the Dead. This makes him a good complement for Almighty Physical attackers like Shiva A, who are otherwise walled by it.
  • Pralaya has a high MP cost and is blocked by Five Elements.
  • No Pierce until Panel 4, requiring a lot of investment.
  • Weak to Ice unless Teal.
  • Very expensive to fuse (only 5+5 fusion paths are available). This is also bad since Kartikeya, one of the most important demons for both PvE and PvP, can only be obtained through a Multi-Fusion involving a Clear Shiva, making it difficult to panel them both at the same time.
  • Expensive with limited damage output. Unsuited for the current meta.

PvE Builds


  • Red: Discounted God's Hand for a strong ST Phys skill. Also costs 5 MP if P3.
  • Teal: Drain Ice to cover his weakness. Also great with Rama or Demiurge to cheese boss fights as he drain Fire and Elec innately as well.

Skill Transfers

Damage Boosters to make Shiva hit hard as possible. Accuracy boosters if facing fast/dodgy enemies.

Damage Boosters:

  • Phys Amp: Highest Phys damage modifier.
  • Butcher: Boosts AOE damage for Vorpal Blade, useful if not red.
  • Death Blow: Great if he's P4 and Pralaya is cast first to gain Rebellion.
  • Epitome of Carnage: Boosts Phys damage + Crit rate.
  • Phys Boost: Early game/budget option.

Accuracy Boosters:

  • Great Aim: Highest accuracy booster.
  • Epitome of Aggression: Boosts accuracy + has ailment resistance.
  • Good Aim: Early game/budget option.

Other/Misc. Skills:

  • Resist/Null Ice: Great to cover weakness if not Teal.
  • Enduring Soul/+: Adds survivability.


  • Stat priorities: Phys ATK%, Phys AC%.
  • War: Boosts his damage.
  • Divine: Allows him to use Vorpal Blade, God's Hand and Pralaya (if P4) more often
  • Aim: Boosts his shaky accuracy to ensure no Press Turns are wasted, plus if he misses, he cannot crit to activate P3.
  • Speed: Boosts team speed if needed.


  1. STR (20): Boosts his damage output.
  2. AGI (20): To boost his accuracy and team speed.
  3. LUK (10): Increases his chances of landing crits and his chances of landing hits.


ArchRed.png Transferred Skills Notes:

Red gives him more flexibilty in his attack options. Vorpal if you need to sweep/take out adds. God's Hand if only the boss is left and does more damage than Vorpal anyways. P4 + Pralaya can be useful if not used in a Gongen team but otherwise, P3 should do just fine.

ArchTeal.png Transferred Skills Notes:

Perfect in Drain teams. P4 is somewhat mandatory for Phys Pierce + Rebellion after casting Pralaya. If paired with Demiurge, he can fix MP issues + provide healing to sustain.

Butcher Phys Amp

St 20 Ag 20 Lu 10
War/Divine + Aim with Phys ATK%.

PvP Builds

Hell Gongen PvP Offense without Panel 3
ArchTeal.png Transferred Skills Notes:

Without Panel 3, Hades Blast is needed against Intimidating Stance teams. With Panel 3 active, Vorpal Blade costs 5 MP, making Hades Blast unnecessary and opening up room for a single target attack, such as Fatal Sword L, Berserker God, or God Hand from Red archetype. It can also let you use War brands instead of Divine.

Butcher Hades Blast
Infused Mitama
St 20 Ag 20 Lu 10
Divine and Ward with PATK% primaries and ACC% tertiaries.

Official Profile

The Hindu creator and destroyer of the world. Along with Vishnu, Shiva is one of the most revered gods in the Hindu faith. There is a belief that he will destroy the world near its end, purifying it during its reconstruction. He uses his destructive force towards demons, and bestows blessings on to those who worship him.
