NB10 Team Guide (Starter To Speed Team)

progression guides Oct 27, 2018

In this Master Guide, I will be breaking down how to build the best Necropolis, Basement 10 (NB10) starter team and speed teams.

The goal of this guide is to get your NB10 team to a 100% success rate, ~50 second average runtime as efficiently as possible so you can really maximize on your rune farming and progress your Summoners War account as fast as possible.

Building a 100% success rate speed team isn’t about having overpowered natural 5-stars (nat 5’s), it’s all about having team synergy and the right rune builds.

 

Why Is Farming NB10 Fast and Efficiently So Important?

Farming Necropolis, Basement 10 (NB10) should be the seventh goal you want to accomplish after Scenarios, GB10, ToA Normal, DB10, ToAH, and R5.

NB10 should be your seventh goal because it drops a few really good rune sets for PvP content like Will runes and Nemesis runes. NB10 is also pretty hard to build a fast and reliable team for so by going into R5 first you can build a much more efficient NB10 starter team.

If you are a free-to-play player or only spend $30-$100 a month on in-game packs then you should be focusing on building a team with the highest success rate possible to maximize on the number of runes you get for your energy and crystals.

If you buy multiple packs every month or just have very little time to play Summoners War then you might want to consider speed as a more important factor to maximize your rune drops.

 

Starter Team (3 mins+)

When you should build this team and break into NB10: After you have farmed good violent, revenge, and shield runes from DB10 and gotten some grinds and enchants for those runes from R5.  

Minimum Stats and Requirements:

  • HP: ~18k (you can get away with more or less depending on how many shield sets you have on the team or if you have high levels in your HP/Def glory totems)
  • Def: 700, if you have less def you will need more HP than the above requirements.
  • Accuracy: 45% on important debuffers (Try to get as close to 45% as that is the cap for accuracy in NB10 and will increase the success rate of your runs)
  • Speed: 130 is the speed cap on the boss stage (Including speed tower)

Important Skills, Buffs, And Debuffs:

Multi-Hits – The Necro boss has a shield that can only be broken by hitting it 7 times, because of this you want monsters with as many multi-hits as possible.

Heals – You will need a powerful healer to sustain the damage you will take from the trash waves and boss.

Defense Break – This debuff is extremely important because it allows you to kill the NB10 boss much faster.

Attack Speed Slow – Since your speed is capped at 130 on the boss stage, you will need attack speed slow to gain turn advantage. The boss is also immune to attack bar reduction making ATK speed slow even more important.

  • Hwa/Loren (Leader)
  • Xiong Fei
  • Colleen
  • Adrian
  • Lucasha

How to Build a Reliable NB10 Speed Team

When should you start building a NB10 Speed Team?

Building a NB10 speed team requires high rune quality and very high levels in your glory towers.

There are two types of successful NB10 speed teams one is all about raw damage with 4 multi-hitting damage dealers with Colleen or Fran healing.

The second types are super fast YOLO 5 damage dealer comps that involve using twins (If you build this type of team right it will not only be extremely fast but near 100% win rate)

I go more in-depth about YOLO twins teams in my Rune Farming Guide. 

Minimum Stats and Requirements:

  • HP: ~18k (you can get away with more or less depending on how many shield sets you have on the team or if you have high levels in your HP/Def glory totems)
  • Def: 700, if you have less def you will need more HP than the above requirements.
  • Accuracy: 45% on Debuffers
  • Speed: 130 (with speed tower)

(Focus on getting your monsters on as much damage as possible)

 

Important Skills, Buffs, And Debuffs:

Multi-Hits – The Necro boss has a shield that can only be broken by hitting it 7 times, because of this you want monsters with as many multi-hits as possible.

Heals – You will need a powerful healer to sustain the damage you will take from the trash waves and boss.

Defense Break – This debuff is extremely important because it allows you to kill the NB10 boss much faster.

Attack Speed Slow – Since your speed is capped at 130 on the boss stage, you will need attack speed slow to gain turn advantage. The boss is also immune to attack bar reduction making ATK speed slow even more important.

 

Standard Speed Team Composition:

  • Healer: With multi-hits and attack buff
  • Damage Dealer: With big AoE wave clear
  • Damage Dealer: With multi-hits and defense break or attack speed slow
  • Damage Dealer: With multi-hits and defense break or attack speed slow
  • Damage Dealer: With multi-hits and defense break or attack speed slow

There are a few other advanced team compositions that are S Tier and have lower rune/stat requirements, I cover these comps in my Rune Farming Guide.

The Rune Farming Guide also has 60+ NB10 teams ranked from most to least effective and an in-depth rune/stat guide that will break down exactly how to rune each monster.

It even covers the best free-to-play speed team compositions anyone can build with fusable or farmable monsters. 

 

Top 7 Necropolis B10 Monsters:

1. Colleen

Colleen is the best healer for NB10 because she provides a strong heal, multi-hits, HP recovery block, attack break, and attack power buff.

You can also build Colleen on high speed to help heal better on the trash waves.

 

2. Grego

Grego is one of the best damage dealers for NB10 because he provides the top three most important skills: multi-hits, defense break, and attack speed slow.

His passive also makes him take less damage so you can focus on building him with more damage, his passive also gives him a huge damage buff if another team member dies which increases your runs reliability.

 

3. Rigel

Rigel is amazing for NB10 for the same reasons as Grego, the only difference is his passive only reduces his chance to get crit.  

 

4. Fuco

Fuco is amazing for NB10 for the same reasons as Grego and Rigel, the only difference is his passive gives him a small HP shield.   

 

5. Lucasha

Lucasha is one of the hardest hitting damage dealers for NB10 with a crazy amount of multi-hits.

She also provides a defense break on skill one and is very easy to build and skill up.

 

6. Shaina/Sabrina (Twins)

Shaina and Sabrina are amazing for NB10 because of the crazy amount of multi-hits and damage they can pump out. They also bring some important debuffs like Defense break, Heal Block, and Attack Break. 

Shiana also provides an extremely reliable defense break and AoE defense break that will make clearing the waves much faster. 

 

7. Teshar / Lushen

Teshar and Lushen are both great for AoE clearing the trash waves before the boss. They both also provide a really big damage leader skill.
