The Tower of Fantasy King is now a museum

The Tower of Fantasy King is now a museum ...

If youre looking for a butt-kicking, no-nonsense merc, this is the place for you. For some reason, people return after going after him, and he's climbed to the top of the Tower of Fantasy tier list, and with his incredible shield breaking abilities and exceptional damage, he's unlikely to lose his spot any time soon.

With our Tower of Fantasy King build, it's time for you to unleash the power of the Scythe of the Crow. We'll cover all of Kings' attacks and abilities, as well as his best matrices and team comps, and more. Fists and weapons are his weapons, and an OP, well-equipped Simulacra are ours.

Check out our other tower of fantasy build guides, including Tower of Fantasy Nemesis and Tower of Fantasy Samir. Weve also provided links to all Tower of Fantasy weapons and Tower of Fantasy matrices, as well as a list of the most recent Tower of Fantasy codes.

Tower of Fantasy King

Who is Tower of Fantasys King?

Tower of Fantasys King is a brash and determined individual, who is well-known for his badass outfit and vibrant hair. He is completely addicted to solving problems and making his own way through a round of good ole combat. Hes not that good at keeping it, and his card skills are less than praised.

King is an extremely powerful SSR DPS who, by his flame-imbushed weapon, cuts down anyone who gets in his or your way.

King is a part of the SSR Simulacra that is currently available on all banners. As such, you may pull him on the standard Weapons Galore banners using a black or gold nucleus, and you may also get him on the limited banner if you don't pull the featured weapon.

Whats the best Tower of Fantasy King build?

King is well-known for his incredible ability to destroy enemy shields, beyond his striking appearance (and, some would say, uncanny resemblance to Genshin Impacts Diluc). With a base shatter value of 12.50, he is the game's best shield breaker, making him an uncanny asset in all gameplay modes.

Kings is more than a shield breaker. Both the large Scythe of the Crows swings and the size of his skill AoEs enable him to deal enormous amounts of damage in a short time span. This multi-target damage increases even more as he acquires a damage buff depending on how many enemies are within range.

King is a fantastic DPS with top-notch shield breaking abilities, and is an asset to pretty much any team. His charge rate is certainly low, but when used with a support or utility weapon to help charge him up, he is almost unstoppable.

Tower of Fantasy King weapon stats

Before you level up or equip it with any matrices, weve listed all of the main stats for the Kings weapon, Scythe of the Crow.

Scythe of the Crow can breach enemy shields as quickly as the shatter ranking allows, while the charge rate indicates how quickly the weapon gains charge.

  • Shatter: 12.50 (S)
  • Charge: 5.00 (B)
  • Attack: 16

Tower of Fantasy King advancement

By buying more than one copy of King and his Scythe of the Crow, you can advance Tower of Fantasy weapons. This is entirely up to RNG.

Special bonuses can be obtained by spending fusion cores and gold. Here are all of the bonuses you can get when unlocking each of Kings advancement stars.

  • One star: increases shatter by 15%. After shattering the targets shield, deal burning damage equal to 120% of attack to the target every second for 15 seconds
  • Two stars: increases the weapons base HP growth by 16%
  • Three stars: increases damage dealt by 10% for every enemy within six metres, up to a maximum of 30%
  • Four stars: increases the weapons base attack growth by 32%
  • Five stars: increases damage dealt against HP shields or shielded enemies by 100%
  • Six stars: increases damage dealt by 10% for each enemy slain for 30 seconds (stack up to three times)

As seen above, you also get a pretty slick skin for King at three advancement stars. It kind of gives us Devil May Cry meets Kingdom Hearts Ansem vibes, which we like.

What is the best Tower of Fantasy Kings matrix set?

King has his own matrix set tailored to his weapon, as with other SR and SSR Simulacra, which is probably the finest for him, although it's a SSR set, it's quite difficult to get hold of. You can pick matrices from the Choice Matrices and Limited Matrices banners, or purchase them from the Commissaries store in exchange for base chips.

If you cant get your hands on a Kings set, then the Sobeks SR Swamp Shadow set is a good substitute. It enhances Kings playstyle by increasing his damage when there are multiple enemies around him. You might also try Robargs SR set, Devourer, which poisons and deals damage to enemies after you have broken their shield.

In our Tower of Fantasy matrices guide, you may choose the R rank set, Self-explosive in the meantime, as it increases Kings flame damage.

ToF matrix setRarityEffect

Tower of Fantasy King team comps

King is extremely adept at breaking shields and dealing damage over a wide AoE, and we generally recommend pairing him with another damage dealer to reap the benefits of the attack weapon resonance. His flame element also makes him ideal for exploration, since you may extract nuclei from environmental interactions like tar pits and kerosina plants without the need for an additional fire unit.

Although Scythe of the Crow is a melee weapon, its a good idea to combine him with a ranged DPS like Tower of Fantasys Samir or Tsubasa, so you can dodge aerial enemies while still dealing damage at a distance when avoiding large boss attacks. Bai Ling is also a good fit.

Venus, a tower of fantasy sword, is a fantastic option for this third slot. She is powerful, and she is still able to deal great damage with her volt pistols. Cocoritter or Pepper may also be useful as an SR substitute.

Venus, Cocoritter, and Pepper help to negate some of the drawbacks associated with Kings low charge rate, allowing you to use his powerful discharge attack more often.

Who is Tower of Fantasy Kings voice actor?

Johnny Young, an English voice actor from Tower of Fantasy Kings, may be familiar from one of his many other well-known roles, including Personas Yu Narukami, Zero from Super Smash Bros.
