Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (23) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (8) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (7) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (6) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Marth are +Atk and -Res. A higher Atk stat allows Marth to to one-hit most dragon foes, making it the most optimal one. However, Marth also has the highest Res out of all the Falchion users, so if you would rather use him as an enemy phase unit instead of a player phase one, you might be okay with a +Res IV instead.

Marth Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Marth's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Effective against dragon foes. At start of odd-numbered turns, restores 10 HP.
Grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+2 to allies within 2 spaces during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Falchion

We recommend getting the special effect refinement for Falchion. This upgrade buffs allies within 2 squares of Marth with a +2 to all stats. Considering that it buffs all ally stats, it has a high range, and that it buffs all units regardless of weapon type or movement type, it is a very easy skill to trigger, and is great for support. On top of that, it will heal Marth on every odd numbered turn, as opposed to every third one.

Marth Roles, Strengths, and Weaknesses

Marth Roles

Marth - Altean Prince Roles
Close Physical Attack ImageClose-Physical Ranged Physical AttackRanged-Physical Close Magic AttackClose-Magic Ranged MagicRanged-Magic
Physical Wall ImagePhysical Wall Magic WallMagic Wall Effective ImageEffective Weapon Movement Assist ImageMovement Assist
Exclusive Skill ImageExclusive Skill No All Range Counterattack ImageAll-Range Counterattack RecoveryRecovery No Refresher ImageRefresher
No Legendary Hero ImageLegendary No Mythic Hero ImageMythic No Duo and Harmonized ImageDuo/Harmonized Resplendent ImageResplendent

Marth 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.

Marth Strengths

HP Recovery and Effective Against Dragons

Marth's exclusive weapon, the Falchion, deals bonus damage against dragons and heals Marth for 10 HP at the start of every third turn. It is a strong weapon that provides great utility, especially when refined.

Falchion's Special Refinement Effect

Falchion grants all units within 2 spaces of Marth with a +2 to all stats. As mentioned in the weapon refinement recommendation, we consider this as a very strong effect that is very easy to utilize.

Escape Route Provides Survivability

Escape Route 3 allows Marth to warp to any adjacent ally if his HP is ≤ 50%. Combined with the healing ability of Falchion, Marth can survive certain situations impossible for many other units.

Marth Weaknesses

Low Res

Marth is a well-balanced character, but he has a low Res stat compared to his other stats. Although not too incredibly low, Marth can take high damage from magic users if you are not careful with his positioning. Always be aware of Marth's positioning in relation to magic users that can deal high damage to him.

Quotes: Castle

It’s strange. I feel like you are a part of me—as if we have been together forever.
I am no Hero-King. I only stopped the war thanks to my many allies.
Thank you for everything you do for us. If ever you find yourself in need, I want you to rely on us.
This world is beautiful... It reminds me of my own homeland.
I cannot allow a single one of my friends to die. Together, you and I, with everyone else, will win this war.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
Over all the battles we’ve fought together, I have come to see my own powerlessness.
As but one, I cannot accomplish anything. Together, we can face everything.
That is why having you at my side gives me courage beyond the telling of it.
I shall continue to fight at your side as long as you will allow me.
I am eternally grateful that we may count on one another.

    • Thank you so much bro. That was really helpful. Will try to have my +10 merge project ASAP. I need 200 more orbs to try and pull for that. I hope there will be good 4* units coming on the future (maybe with the new year).
