Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) Normal HP ★★★★☆
Atk (16) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (1) Spd Bane ★★★☆☆
Def (8) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (5) 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 Luke are +Atk and -Res. Luke relies solely on Atk to deal damage as he can already nail two attacks into the opponent with either Brave Sword or Rowdy Sword. His Res is of less importance so it is safe to take it as a bane.

Luke Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Luke's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 11 Range: 1 HP: +3
Inflicts Spd-5. If unit initiates combat, unit attacks twice.
If a bonus granted by a skill like Rally or Hone is not active on foe, grants Atk/Def+6 during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

Rowdy Sword is granted a very straightforward effect upon special refinement. It grants Luke +6 Atk/Def if bonuses granted by Rally or Hone are not active on the foe. The Atk bonus greatly improves the damage dealt by Rowdy Sword's 2 attacks. Make use of skills like Dull Close 3 to disable any Rally or Hone bonus to make better use of this buff!

Luke 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.

Luke Strengths

Attack Twice with Rowdy Sword

Rowdy Sword hits harder than Brave Sword+ and it is basically a direct upgrade from it. It also has access to a special refinement effect which is discussed in detail here!

Buffs Atk if HP is Higher than Foe's

Fire Boost 3 grants +6 Atk if Luke's HP ≥ foe’s HP+3. Unlike Death Blow 3, it also activates when Luke performs counterattacks, making it a goood enemy phase skill as well. This works well with Rowdy Sword as that will provide a total of +12 Atk worth of damage in one initiated attack.

Can Weaken Buffed Enemies

Panic Ploy 3 converts units' bonuses in Luke's cardinal direction into penalties, meaning all positive stat boosts turn into negative stat reductions. This effects all units in spaces above, below, to the right, or to the left of Luke. With his fairly high HP, this is a powerful skill for Luke, since it is easy for him to debuff many enemy units with lower HP.

The HP requirement also makes a 5★ Luke a good candidate for Summoner Support as he greatly benefits from the +5 HP. Not to mention, this helps triggering Fire Boost 3 as well!

Luke Weaknesses

Low Spd

Luke has low Spd. He will be taken out by many enemies if ever he is attacked. Make use of his high mobility to pick the right targets and prolong his presence in the battlefield!

Low Res

Luke's Res only sits at 20 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Luke's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out.
