Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Tempest Trials, Marisa will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Marisa are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Marisa to get a ton of follow-up attacks on her foes. It also protects her from hostile follow-up attacks. Her Res is of less importance and thus safe to be taken as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Marisa to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With this IV, she can reach 43 Spd which is at a range wherein she can score lots of follow-up attacks if she has ample support from allies.

Follow-up attacks also speeds-up Marisa's special activation which is very important as she deals damage through constant activation of specials.

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build utilizes Marisa's new refined weapon, which accelerates her Special trigger and stacks this effect with Time's Pulse and Quickened Pulse. This makes Aether, a 5 cooldown Special, be able to trigger sooner, giving Marisa a lot of survivability. You can swap out the Special with something else to your liking, and swap out both her Swift Sparrow skill slotted in for Atk/Spd Solo 4 and 3, respectively.

Marisa Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Marisa's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). Deals +7 damage when Special triggers.
At Start of turn, if Special Cooldown count is at its maximum value, grants Special cooldown count-1. If unit initiates combat or is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Spd+5 to unit during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Shamshir

Shamshir's Special refine is very powerful, giving Marisa cooldown count-1 if it's at max value as well as granting her Atk/Spd+5 if she's within 2 spaces of an ally.

This makes her great at initiating combat, as she can trigger her Special every time.

Marisa 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.

Marisa Strengths

Very High HP Stat

Marisa is one of the sword users who has the highest HP stats. This allows her to easily utilize her native C skill, Infantry Pulse 3. Her high HP also gives her the option to run Wind Boost 3 which is arguably better than her native A skill. Additionally, it also has some defensive benefits as it makes her less suscetible to the effects of Panic Ploy 3

High Firepower with Shamshir and Glimmer

Marisa's refined weapon Shamshir accelerates her Special trigger and grants her cooldown count-1 if it's at max value. This works great with her low cooldown special Glimmer, which means she can trigger it fairly easily and quickly. This can stack a lot and deal massive total damage in a single map.

Speeds up the special cooldown of allied infantry

The C skill Infantry Pulse will reduce the cooldown count of infantry units at the start of the first turn. This will work on all allies whose HP is lower than Marisa's, and it stacks with other similar skills, meaning it can be paired with Heavy Blade or Breaker weapons.

Marisa Weaknesses

Low Res

Marisa's Res only sits at 21 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for magic users to take her out. Be mindful of Marisa's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take her out.

Low Atk Stat

Marisa has a very low Atk stat at 30. This pushes her to rely on **Glimmer and Shamshir

  • to knock-out foes. We recommend replacing her A skill with more powerful ones such as Fury 4 or Life and Death 4 if you plan on using her in the long run to lessen her reliance on Wo Dao's effects.

    This’ll just take a moment.
    You need to get serious.

    Are you sure about this?

    Quotes: Castle

    See Castle Quotes
    This dry wind... It reminds me of the deserts of Jehanna.
    I wonder how Gerik and his band are doing.
    Your hands... They’re blistered. You’re holding your weapon wrong. Wrap the grip in hide.
    I’m good for fighting and not much else. If you want to spar, you can come and find me.
    Do you need something? Don’t just look at me. Makes me uneasy.

    Lv 40 Dialogue

    See Lv 40 Dialogue
    I’m used to you watching me practice. No idea why you think it’s interesting to watch me swing a sword, though.
    I practice every day. I’ve fought a thousand men, and I won every single time.
    If I’m facing an enemy, I refuse to give in. And if I have to confront myself...I won’t give in either.
    Battles happen once. They’re no time to test your skills—you win, or you lose. It’s black and white.
    I don’t know where the road you’re on will lead. And some day, you may have to face yourself.
    When that day comes, the only one you can depend on...is you.
    Keep getting stronger. Until you have walked your path as far as it can take you.
