Selena (Fates) Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superboon ★★☆☆☆
Atk (18) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (9) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (8) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (6) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk/-HP

The best IVs for Selena are +Atk and -HP. Selena has great Spd and has skills to reduce opponents Spd, but her Atk power is very low. Taking a +Atk IV somehow patches this as her Atk is a superboon. This means it adds +4 instead of the regular +3. Her HP is of less importance so it is safe to take as a bane.

Selena (Fates) Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Selena'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 foes Atk ≥ unit's Atk +3, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+3 during combat.
Deals +10 damage when Special triggers.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Selena's Blade

The special effect refine for Selena's Blade adds +10 damage when special triggers. The damage added is pure, meaning, it can not be reduced by opponents' stats. This is great for Selena as she has an awful Atk stat. We strongly recommend getting this refine if you plan on using Selena in the long run.

Selena 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.

Selena Strengths

Her Weapon is an Upgraded Armorslayer+

Selena's Blade is not only strong against armored units, but it also grants +3 to all stats under certain conditions. Lastly, it has a special effect refine that gives an effect similar to Wo Dao+. You can read more about the refine here!

Weapon Improves Special Attack Firepower

Selena's weapon, Selena's Blade, grants this effect upon special refinement: deals +10 damage when her special triggers. We recommend inheriting a low cooldown special such as Moonbow onto Selena to increase her lackluster damage.

Very Strong Against Green Units

Selena has access to Triangle Adept 3 which boosts her Atk by +20% if she gets into combat with green units. This allows Selena to deal with powerful green units with ease. This also makes Selena a valuable unit because the green attribute class is boasts some of the strongest units in the game, and she has the tools to easily take them out.

Combined with her armor-effective weapon, she makes for a hard counter against strong green armor units such as Winter Sothis, Legendary Hector and Brave Ephraim.

Selena Weaknesses

Low Atk stat

Selena's Atk stat only sits at 25 at Lv. 40. This is very very low for a physical attacker. This is why we strongly recommend you use a +Atk IV Selena as her superboon in said stat will help her greatly in increasing her damage.

Very Weak Against Blue Units

Selena's kit utilizes Triangle Adept 3, which makes her extra strong against green units, but very weak against blue units. She can be one-shot by most offensive blue units so pay attention to his positioning in relation to them, and leave them to Selena's allies so she can focus her firepower on other units.
