Sunblast was The Firestorm's disciple, but he disagreed with his teacher a lot. Those disagreements ended up in the battlefield, where The Firestorm kicked Sunblast so hard that he flew off and landed onto the sun. The Firestorm thought that was the end of Sunblast, but he was wrong!
Sunblast is a good Fire denier with many nice gimmicks. This includes CDA, Possession, Guard Down and Stamina Removal. He also has access for decent relic slots, Guard Down so that his denials and his allies' attacks always hit, and a decent trait. His drawbacks are a lack of PER and Trait Disable, which is a very important thing for deniers to have, high cooldowns and stamina costs, and his kit has a lot of AoE skills, which makes him weak to Area Dodge. Overall, Sunblast is a decent denier with some pretty heavy drawbacks.

Recommended Runes: 3 Speed
- With his Hardened trait, he is fairly weak to deny effects. Use deniers that are faster than him like Jasastur and Saulot.
- His moderate cooldowns allow CDA monsters such as Pierceid and Patient Cyber to counter him.
- Hookuai is a great counter due to his Control Immunity and his high damaging Water move that costs 0 stamina and has a 0 turn cooldown, which just ruins Sunblast's whole gimmick. Hookuai also has access to CDA which just further screws Sunblast over.
- Sunblast is the older brother of Solarflare.
