Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (16) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (24) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (14) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (8) Def Boon ★★☆☆☆
Res (4) Res Bane ★★☆☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for New Year Gunnthrá are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows New Year Gunnthrá to get more follow-up attacks on her foes. It also improves her defenses by making her less susceptible to follow-up attacks. With her somewhat low defensive stats, no bane would be best, but it is better to take a -Res superbane to focus on being able to tank physical attacks better.

New Year Gunnthrá is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

New Year Gunnthrá Strengths

Debuff to All Stats

At the start of the turn, Hikami inflicts -4 to all stats to the nearest foe within 4 spaces throughout their next actions. This debuff is very easy to trigger and gives you a huge advantage over the affected foe! However, it only affects them thrugh their next action. This means if their actions are refreshed or if they use an ability such as Galeforce, they will be able to enjoy an action without the penalties.

Spd Buff for Gunnthrá and her Team

Joint Hone Spd grants +5 Spd to Gunnthrá if she is adjacent to an ally at the start of the turn. This bonus is also granted to the allies adjacent to her. This is a great buff as it is easy to utilize and Spd is useful for most units.

New Year Gunnthrá Weaknesses

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, New Year Gunnthrá takes 1.5x damage from bows and weapons effective on flying units. Be sure to keep them out of the range of archers and leave them to other units.

Units to buff her attack power and grant additional actions

Having a support unit to increase New Year Gunnthrá's damage output is ideal. Units like L! Azura and Flying Olivia who can buff Gunnthrá's while simultaneously granting additional actions can allow her to OHKO foes.

Units who can take down blue units

New Year Gunnthrá has very low defense stats. This means that even some mid-tier blue units can easily take her out. Make sure to cover her weaknesses by pairing her with green units such as Flying Nino or Lewyn.

Units with high Def stats

Since New Year Gunnthrá does not have the best damage output, it would be difficult for her to take out units with high Def stats such as Idunn and Halloween Myrrh. If they are not able to take Gunnthrá out with the counterattack, she is sure to get taken out in the next enemy phase. Pair Gunnthrá with units that can take out foes that she have a hard time dealing with.

Weak to bow-wielding characters

As a flying unit, New Year Gunnthrá takes 1.5x damage from bows users such as Legendry Alm, Klein and especially Legendary Lucina who has an attribute strong against Gunnthrá's. Be sure to keep them out of the range of archers and leave them to other units.

Inheriting Joint Hone Spd

New Year Gunnthrá can be used to inherit the skill Joint Hone Spd. However, since New Year Gunnthrá is a powerful special hero that you can only obtain from a special heroes banner, we recommend training and building her instead. If you do choose to fodder her off regardless, keep in mind that Joing Hone Spd is a very rare skill.
