Tobin Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Tobin's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Effective against armored foes.
At start of combat, if unit's max HP ≥ foe's HP+1, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 to unit during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Jubilant Blade

This weapon is a more powerful version of Armorslayer+. With the weapon refinery's effect, Tobin can gain a +4 bonus on all stats when his max HP is greater than the foe's HP by 2. Tobin has a pretty high HP stat of 46, which can be further boosted by Sacred Seals, merges, as well as dragon flowers, making this added effect very easy to make use of.

No All Range Counterattack ImageAll-Range Counterattack RecoveryRecovery No Refresher ImageRefresher Assist Not Legendary ImageLegendary/Mythic

Tobin is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def stat. He also has skills that are effective on armored units and can lower a foe's Spd.

Tobin Strengths

Strong against armored foes

With Jubilant Blade (the more powerful version of Armorslayer+), Tobin can deal 1.5x damage to armroed foes. Since he is a red unit, this will give him a strong edge when going into combat against powerful green armored units like Surtr or Legendary Hector.

Can tank physical attacks

With his high HP and Def stats, Tobin is easy to make use of as a defense tank. However, his Spd stat is not so remarkable, so when he tanks attacks, he will often have to eat an enemy follow-up attack. Watch out for the foes' Spd stats, and aim to only tank attacks that he can emerge safely from.

Can inflict a large penalty on foes' Spd

The B Skill Seal Spd 3 will allow Tobin to inflict Spd-7 on a foe after combat. This means Tobin can initiate combat to lower the Spd of a foe and weaken them, then another ally can hop in with two attacks for an easy kill.

Tobin Weaknesses

Hard to use as an attack unit

While he is pretty good at tanking enemy attacks, Tobin's offensive stats leave something to be desired, and he isn't particularly strong against anyone other than armored units. If you intend to use him as a player-phase attacker, he is going to need the help of some extra skills and possibly buffs from his allies.

Value of Skills ★★☆☆☆

Inheriting Armorslayer+

Tobin can be foddered to teach the skill Armorslayer+ to another unit. However, this unit can only be obtained via Tempest Trials, so there is a finite amount of duplicates you can get. If you are going to use him for Inherit Skill, think carefully about who the recipient will be.
