Mino Monsters Pro Tip:
Unstoppable Death Machine? Max out a Wix.
Wix is a weasel-like Mino that is found in the Jungle of Water Island. You might get one through a Mystery Chest or your Newb Crate. Once you battle and defeat one, you can buy one for 310 measly Star Coins through the Minos tab, under the Electric group. Each of its three Attack Skills has four levels; the more levels a Skill can advance, the more expensive they will be, but also, the more powerful. Compare pictures 3 and 4: 3 is the basic Level 10 you can buy, and 4 is Witch, my Elite Level 40.
Though the Attack and Defense each only get a 1.5/3+ rating, a maxed out Wix is still exceptionally mighty. Witch can take three hits from an Elite Earth Guardian before fainting; one strike from that same Guardian can knock out any other Electrical type, except maybe an Elite Lanstorm.
Wix’s Elemental quality is a full 3/3+, which is as good as it gets if you need an Electric attack. This Mino can devastate the Air Grublings of Fire Island with a single Bolt Attack.
Interestingly, Wix’s Perks make it one of the absolute most useful Minos of the entire game. Regarding the Element Cycle, I’ll use the following Emoji to illustrate:
🌎Earth > ⚡Electric > 💭Air > 💧Water > 🔥Fire > 🌎Earth and so on.

Electric types are best against Air, strong against Water, and naturally weakest against Earth, and somewhat weak to Fire. Against other Electric types, the battle would normally come down to strength and skill.
Air and Water attacks can do very little damage to your Wix. You already have a damned good advantage there. What ho, the Thunder Cloud Perk? Pitting your Electric Mino against any Fire Monster is usually a bad idea because Fire has a decent edge. Minos with the Thundercloud Perk turn the tables and steal the edge. The Electric Master Perk also kicks Neutrality to the curb and allows you to tear through similarly typed Minos and Grublings. The only type that really stands a chance against a maxed out Wix is Earth, and even the toughest Earth opponents have to fight hard to keep that edge. Very often, in the Arena, I use Witch to lure out Earth types since the game engine will automatically switch to the strongest Element to fight against your active Mino. The Earth Guardian can take down many of my other Elites, including Fire types, with little effort. However, with Witch, charged attacks and existing damages aside, it is more common for me to beat a tough Earth opponent in one or two basic, non-Skill hits; that same Mino needs to hit Witch an average of three times before I lose him. The one Element that is supposed to bring the thunder ferret to its knees is, often times, proven to be weaker than Wix.
Wix is a freaking beast, and I can’t give more praise to any other Mino in the game to date. Witch has been a necessity to my team from the day he clawed his way out of my Newb Crate. I really like Lanstorm, Magmalleon, Alacon, and Crocobeast, but none of them is quite as perfectly rounded as Wix. If someone else on my team gets knocked out, there’s still a really good chance that Witch can pull that weight and keep things under control. If you are still new and unsure of how to advance in the game, invest in one of these ugly little juice rats and put all of your winnings into developing it. Then, do it three more times and create a full team of Wix. You’ll be scary. You’ll be a beast.
