Dark Cacao Cookie is an Ancient Charge Cookie who plays the role of an offensive tank. With the Grapejam Chocoblade at his disposal, Dark Cacao fearlessly defends the frontlines while providing an enormous amount of utility for the team.
Dark Cacao Cookie Skill and Gameplay
Solemn Judgement: Swings the Grapejam Chocoblade with great force, causing thunder and lighting to inflict DMG upon foes in range. This mighty attack reduces enemies' ATK, DEF and inflicts Zap and Injury. Injured foes will have reduced Max HP, and the Injury debuff ignores immunity and dispelling effects not mentioning Injury specifically. While Dark Cacao Cookie is using his Skill, he will briefly become resistant to interrupting effects.
- Cooldown: 16 seconds
- First hit DMG: 46.9 percent (+0.64 percent DMG per level)
- Second hit DMG: 265.8 percent (+3.62 percent DMG per level)
- Passive Debuff Resist: +20 percent
- Enemy DEF Reduction: -15 percent DEF for nine seconds
- Enemy ATK Reduction: -10.8 percent ATK for nine seconds
- Injury: 12.5 percent Max HP reduction for 30 seconds (from the start of the battle), with a reduction limit of up to 25 percent
- Zap: three percent DMG every second for nine seconds, nullifies HP shield
Dark Cacao's kit seems complicated at first glance due to the sheer number of debuffs that he inflicts upon enemies. While he primarily plays the role of a tank, Dark Cacao brings plenty of utility by weakening enemies' ATK, DEF, and HP. He also inflicts Zap, which deals DMG over time while nullifying powerful HP shields—such as Pure Vanilla Cookie's. His normal ATK also has enough range to hit two rows of enemies.
Best Dark Cacao Cookie Build
Due to living on the frontline, Dark Cacao Cookie is best equipped with a full set of Solid Almonds to boost his DMG resist and ensure his survivability. Make sure to roll for some cooldown reduction bonus stats to help him spam his jam-packed Skill.
For Treasures, equip the Squishy Jelly Watch for cooldown reduction. He can also benefit from ATK-boosting Treasures like the Old Pilgrim's Scroll.
