Blackwing is one of the best monsters in Lords Mobile. This two-necked snake may remind you of one of the powerful Sanins (Orochimaru) from Naruto world. Rest assured it does provide good gear for both attackers and defense.
There is another relatively newer monster, Hootclaw, which will eventually replace and lead to the slow death of Blackwing, however, as of today making mythic Hootclaw gear is still relatively hard. One of the mixed set war piece of Blackwing is also irreplaceable for F2P players.
So now that we have established there is value in hunting Blackwing, let’s look into the best hero lineup for Blackwing which would lead to maximum damage.

Quick Monster Manual
DMG Type: Magic
Strong Against: High MDEF
Weak Against: The Blackwing constantly hungers for blood, and will always lock onto the healthiest target in sight! Its venomous fangs nullifies all Life Leech effects, and its thick hide protects it from the strongest magical attacks. Take it down with brute physical force!
Blackwing Free Hero Lineup
Here is my recommended best known free-to-play (f2p) hero lineup against the Blackwing : Black Crow, Demon Slayer, Scarlet Bolt, Tracker, Trickster.
A breakdown of best free heroes to use by monster level, along with alternate recommendations :

You can deal more damage if you replace free heroes with special paid heroes. Here is my recommended best known pay-to-play (p2p) hero lineup against the gargantua : Black Crow, Demon Slayer, Scarlet Bolt, Tracker, Femme Fatale.
A breakdown of best paid heroes to use by monster level, along with alternate recommendations :

Blackwing War Gear
You can deal great damage to Blackwing with my recommended setup shared above. Even with f2p heroes the damage is significant, therefore, everyone loves hitting Blackwing.
Now let’s look into the gear piece you should focus on from Blackwing:
1. Dragon’s Talon (Legs)
- Inf ATK 28%
- Rng ATK 42%
- Army HP 14%
Good for Range blast set. Must for F2P mixed defense set.
2. Dragon’s Fist (Off-Hand)
- Cav ATK 30.8%
- Army HP 28%
Good for Cav blast set (Hootclaw’s Lunar Boomerang has better stats). Very easy to make and can be used for defense because of high HP till you make Winter Mitts
3. Dragon’s Iris (Accessory)
- Cav ATK 14%
- Rng ATK 14%
- Army HP 14%
Mixed Defense/ Medium difficulty: Make it only after you have made the first two gear sets. Not recommended to make.
4. Dragon’s Bite (Main Hand)
- Inf ATK 14%
- Army HP 14%
Not great stats, not recommended to make.
Blackwing is a mixed bag with two great options for f2p warriors:
- Dragon’s Talon (Legs):
- High range stats for blast attacks
- Best for mixed defense set
- Dragon’s fist (Off-Hand): Easy to make.
- Good for Cav blast
- Initial mixed defense set
Blackwing helps you bring balance to your stats and provides great gear for mix and blast sets. So even with new monsters arriving I feel there is high value. Happy hunting!
