Is Cha Hae-In Worth It in Solo Leveling Arise?

The short answer is, yes. Cha Hae-In has quickly proven to be a very strong single-target DPS character in Solo Leveling Arise, and if you manage to get her for your account, you’ll be setting yourself up for a very good start to the game.

The long answer is that while Cha Hae-In is excellent, she’s not quite the best character you can get in the game. That honor still goes to Choi Jong-Un, who is hands down the best DPS character, as well as Min Byung-Gu, who’s the best support on the roster right now.

Choi Jong-Un gives you access to really powerful AoE skills, while Min Byung-Gu is a fantastic buffer who can support your party in all situations. Both these characters are versatile options for any party setup, and while Cha Hae-In is very powerful, she’s just slightly less versatile and a bit harder to slot into any party composition you can think of. This isn’t to say that she’s difficult to make use of — she’s not — but if we’re being nitpicky, then we’ll have to rank her just a bit lower the other two.

Cha Hae-In’s Kit Explained

Cha Hae-In’s moveset in Solo Leveling Arise is very centered around critical hit rate and knockdown. Here’s a full rundown of her skills:

As you can see, the goal with Hae-In is to keep increasing her critical hit rate, while also Branding enemies and knocking them down at the same time. Her kit culminates in her Ultimate Skill, where she’s able to deal additional damage to Branded foes. She works best against single targets and bosses, where her damage output can really shine.

If you’re planning on rerolling your account, then Cha Hae-In is definitely a strong target to go for.
