[Knight of Wrath] Demon Meliodas or commonly known as Blue Demon Meliodas is a versatile attacker in both PVP and PVE content. He is known for his AOE Pierce attack (similar to Red Howzer’s) and his corrosion skill which makes him effective against enemies with high HP. What makes Blue Demon Meliodas more viable in PVP is his unique ability to block “attack disable” when he has 4 or less Ultimate Move Gauges. This counters Red Gowther’s debuff skill and the likes, allowing him to conveniently use attack skills anytime during battle.
In PVP, Blue Demon Meliodas is a favorite pick for players running a Pierce team composition. The team is best supported by Pierce enhancing heroes like Blue Lillia who increases the effectiveness of his “Enchanted Hellblaze” skill. The main team is then completed with a high pierce rate attacker like Green Escanor to easily burst down the enemy in one turn.
Efficiency is important in PVE and Blue Demon Meliodas is an ideal choice especially when grinding Free Stages, Dungeons, and Boss battles. As always, Blue Lillia or Blue Weinheidt is needed to boost his pierce rate to grant quick turns. Overall he is one of the units you can use extensively in all types of battle. Unfortunately, he isn’t purchasable in the Coin Shop and can only be summoned in SSR Part 2 tickets or special banners.
- Top-level hero in PVP and PVE
- Hard to stop his attack skills because of his Unique ability
- His ultimate is lethal to enemies with debuffs, which can be followed after using his debuff skill “Darkness Flutter”
- The “Darkness Flutter” corrosion debuff counters heroes with high HP
- High base Attack and Crit Damage
- High Lifesteal stat which allows him to regain huge amounts of HP from AOE skill. Most effective when gear sets are equipped and less effective in normal PVP and Training Grotto.
- Low base Defense which can be worrying if the enemy gets to attack first
- Needs a Pierce Rate booster to be effective, without one he can be a liability in PVP
“Enchanted Hell Blaze” - AOE attack that gets stronger as his Pierce Rate stat increases. Blue Demon Meliodas is usually paired with Blue Lillia or Blue Weinheidt who can augment the team’s Pierce Rate. This further becomes a threatening skill when Blue Demon Meliodas’ Bracer and Ring have Pierce Rate bonus stats.
“Darkness Flutter” - an AOE debuff skill that inflicts additional damage to enemies at the end of their turn. The corrosion damage is based on the amount of HP remaining which is effective against heroes with high HP. The skill inflicts maximum damage when the enemy HP is full. Conversely inflicts less damage when the enemy HP is low.
Ultimate: “Hell Buster” - this skill comes with a Weak Point effect, inflicting 3x damage against a debuffed target. In case the target has no debuff, you can use “Dark Flutter” first or an ally’s debuff skill to trigger the bonus damage.
Unique: “Absolute Volition” - Attack disables do not affect Blue Demon Meliodas as long as his Ultimate Move Gause isn’t full. This ensures the usage of “Enchanted Hellblaze” anytime when the skill is available. This counters the debuff effects of Red Gowther who is frequently used in PVP.
Equipment Set - Onslaught (Attack) / Iron Wall (Defense).
Substats are as follows:
Bracer/Ring - full Pierce Rate or half Attack half Pierce Rate
Necklace/Earring - Defense
Belt/Rune - HP
Free Stage - Used extensively in Free Stages to farm equipment. Together with Blue Lillia and Red Howzer, they can clear the waves faster because of their AOE Pierce attacks. Farming for equipment should always be set in stages with the highest difficulty (Hard difficulty drops SSR equipment). You can fill the sub-slot with a hero that gives benefit to your main team using their unique abilities. Some top examples are:
- Red Jericho - boosts the Attack-related stats of Strength-type heroes
- Blue Jericho - boosts the Attack-related stats of Speed-type heroes
- Green Deathpierce - increases the chance of landing a critical hit and lowers the enemies critical defense
SP Dungeon (Fort Solgres) - Similar to Free Stages, he is also an effective farmer in this area (Events Dungeon, Enhance and Evolution Attribute Dungeons, and Gold Dungeon). Team composition is the same as Free Stage.
Boss Battle - He is a top choice in all chapters of boss stages to acquire Awakening materials and triggering a Death Match. However, he isn’t used in any of the Death Matches (Red Demon, Gray Demon, Howlex).
PVP - Blue Demon Meliodas is a top choice for Pierce teams and a constant partner to Blue Lillia. Together they create a good combination of strong AOE attacks and sustain. It can be bearable not using a Blue Lillia if you’re only pushing towards Master rank. But for high-level PVP (Champion and Challenger), their combination is essential.
Meliodas is the Dragon's Sin of Wrath and captain of the Seven Deadly Sins, formerly the owner of the renowned tavern Boar Hat, and is the main protagonist of the series. His Sacred Treasure is the Demon Sword Lostvayne and his inherent power is Full Counter.
