Soul

Example: Seductress or Scarlet x4 + Crit x2

Position 2/4/6: SPD/ATK/Crit or Crit Dmg

Discussion:

Kainin is a purely offensive Shikigami so offensive Soul works well on her.

Due to the nature of her skills, Seductress and Scarlet are the most favoured choices. Seductress does so much damage if she gets lucky with her skills. Scarlet has more synergy in which her skills triggers when the soul procs.

She would need some SPD to go into stealth mode as often as possible. The rest of the stats should go into building damage. She should be able to get by with around 80% Critical so I would say position 6 could be Critical Damage if possible.

Sample Team

Hakuzosu, Kujira, Kanin, Shiranui, Hiyoribo, with Kagura

Kainin strives in an environment where enemies acts often to let her build up Weakness. Then seaks opportunity to launch counter. Hakuzosu and Hiyoribo should be able to keep her alive long enough. Kujira is there for added damage.

Verdict

Kainin is a fun Shikigami to use but not exactly top tier.

In the current meta, she may have difficulty draggin the fight long enough to launch an effective counter. With the likes of Ungaikyo and Hoshiguma, her confusion is rendered somewhat useless.

I see that she can still be used against some teams but definitely not as often as before.

She can act as a AOE DPS for Uber Boss Defense fights though. Her low orb consumption is her biggest asset.

Since she is only obtainable from Shrine, I would not suggest investing in her if you are short on resources.
