Ryoma Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (24) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (11) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (5) Def Bane ★★☆☆☆
Res (4) No Res IV ★☆☆☆☆

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

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Ryoma are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Ryoma to get more of follow-up attacks on his foes. It also makes him less susceptible to follow-up attacks from foes. Since his Def is a superbane, it is best to take a Res as his bane instead. Take note that this puts his Res into very low levels so stay clear of magic units, even green ones, when using Ryoma.

Ryoma Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Ryoma's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Unit can counterattack regardless of foe's range.
If unit initiates combat or if unit is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 during combat and neutralizes effects that guarantee foe's follow-up attacks and effects that prevent unit's follow-up attacks during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Raijinto

Raijinto's refine gives Ryoma Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 and also gives him a Null Follow-Up 3 effect.

We recommend getting this refine as he will be able to go toe to toe with units like Fallen Edelgard or Fallen Corrin (M).

Ryoma 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.

Ryoma Strengths

Weapon has a built-in Distant Counter and Null Follow-Up 3

Raijinto allows Ryoma to counterattack regardless of range and grants him Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 and a Null Follow-Up 3 effect if it's refined.

This frees up the A slot for more powerful skills such as Fury 4 Check out our recommended build for Ryoma here!

With some investment, Ryoma can become a decent enemy phase unit especially against physical units.

Powerful Speedy Attacker

Ryoma's Atk and Spd are 34 and 35 respectively. These are fair values that allow him to dish-out heavy-hitting follow-up attacks to a wide range of units.The follow-up attacks also means that he charges up Astra a bit quicker.

Astra is a very powerful Special Attack

Astra is a very powerful special attack that boosts Ryoma's damage dealt by 150%. Ryoma can take out a wide range of units once activated. The only downside to Astra is its high cooldown count of 4. To combat this, we recommend giving Ryoma the Quickened Pulse Sacred Seal. It grants him -1 special cooldown count at the start of turn 1. This allows him to take out a priority target early on in battles.

Spd Buff for his Team

Hone Spd 3 grants +4 Spd to Ryoma's allies if they are adjacent to him at the start of the turn. The +4 Spd buff lasts for 1 whole turn. This is a great buff as it is easy to utilize and Spd is useful for most units.

Access to a Special effect refine!

He has access to a Special effect refine and you can read more about it in the Weapon Refinement section!!

Ryoma Weaknesses

Low Defenses

Ryoma's Def and Res sit at only 27 and 21 respectively. This makes him a bit fragile especially against magic units. Be mindful of Ryoma's positioning in relation to blue or magic units that can easily take him out.

Value of Skills ★☆☆☆☆

Not Recommended for Skill Inheritance

Ryoma does not possess any skills that are worth inheriting onto another unit. We recommend training and investing in him instead. If you get multiple copies of him, you can aim for a +10 merge Ryoma or send him home for some Hero Feathers.
