Hríd - Icy Blade: Basic Information

Color / Weapon Type / Move Type
Rarity
What Kind of Character Are They? A Wind-Type Legendary Hero
・Guaranteed follow-up attack on foes with penalties, and prevents their follow-up attack
・Exclusive weapon has an innate Seal-skill debuff

Hríd Skills at 5★


Might: 16  Range: 1
Grants Atk +3. If a penalty inflicted by a skill like Panic or Threaten and/or negative status effect (preventing counterattacks or restricting movement) is active on foe, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and foe cannot.

Cooldown Count = 2
Treats foe's Def/Res as if reduced by 30% during combat.

Enables unit to counterattack regardless of distance to attacker.

At start of turn, if unit’s HP ≥ 50%, inflicts Atk/Spd -6 on foe on the enemy team with the lowest Res through its next action.

Hríd Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (26) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (4) Spd Bane ★★☆☆☆
Def (12) No Def IV ★★☆☆☆
Res (4) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk/-Spd

The best IVs for Hrid are +Atk and -Res. With his superboon, a +Atk IV Hrid would have +4 more Atk at Lv. 40, making him that much more powerful. His Spd is already low and it isn't really important for him as his weapon can guarantee follow-up attacks, so it is safe to take Spd as a bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Hrid to 10. With a +Atk IV, Hrid's Atk stat will reach 64 at 10 merges, allowing him to one-shot many units. If you prefer a tankier build, go for a +Res or a +Def as a base.

Hrid Strengths

Guaranteed Follow-up Attack on Debuffed Foes

Gjöll grants Atk +3 and guarantees follow-up attacks if the foe has an active penalty. It is very easy to trigger as Hrid has a native debuff skill. Combined with his high Atk, it is easy for Hrid to take out many enemy units. Additionally, Gjöll prevents counterattacks on Hrid.

Has a Strong and reliable Debuff Skill

Freezing Seal inflicts Atk/Spd -6 on the foe with the lowest Res. Since Hrid is reliant on debuffs, if there are no other sources of debuffs on your team, only engage with the enemy affected by Freezing Seal. The power of this skill lies in the fact that it will be cast anywhere, regardless of distance.

Distant Counter

Distant Counter allows Hrid to counterattack units regardless of range. This will work on any tome or bow users, provided that those units do not have skills that prevent countertattacks.

Hríd Weaknesses

Reliant on Debuffs

Gjöll relies on debuffs to be able to guarantee follow-up attacks. If you fail to debuff an enemy, it is most likely that L!Hríd will fail to take the enemy out. He is vulnerable to follow-up attacks so if he fails to take his enemy out and gets left in the danger zone, he will most likely be taken out.

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

L!Hríd takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Ridersbane, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to take him down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Units with debuffs

The effects of Gjöll depends on debuffs. It makes a guaranteed follow-up attack if Hríd's enemy is currently debuffed. Whilst Hríd does have a debuff in Freezing Seal, it is quite limited. It would be best to pair him up with heroes that can provide more reliable debuffs.

Heal support units

Freezing Seal is the key skill in Hríd's kit and triggering it requires 50% HP or above. Having units that can heal Hríd like Veronica on your team will guarantee that Freezing Seal is active most of the time.

Magic units with high Atk

L!Hríd has low Res, and magic users, especially blue ones, can exploit it easily. Units to watch out for include Reinhardt and New Year Alfonse. Additionally, even red magic users will deal high damage to L!Hríd so watch out for high Atk red magic units like Kiria and Aversa. Always be mindful of L!Hríd's positioning in relation to the units that possess a threat to him. When L!Hríd is taken out, you lose access to the various buffs that he provides which is especially important in Arena.

Anti cavalry units

Be careful of units that possess Ridersbane or any weapon that is cavalry-effective as they all deal 1.5x damage to L!Hríd. Pay extra attention to Micaiah who has Thani, a cavalry-effective blue tome that can one-shot L!Hríd.

Units that can debuff or nullify buffs

Because of L!Hríd's reliance towards buffs, he is not so good in dealing with foes that have skills like Dull Close 3 and Lull Atk/Spd 3 which both debuff L!Hríd and his allies. Pay close attention to units like Aversa, Garon and Fallen Corrin (F) that have penalty skills like Panic Ploy 3 and Panic+ as they can turn the buffs on L!Hríd and turn them into penalties.

Inheriting Distant Counter

Hrid can be used to inherit the skill Distant Counter. However, Hrid is a wind-type legendary hero who can lead your allies in the Arena so we recommend building and training him instead.

The peace of this realm depends on you. That means your attention is as valuable as any jewel in the treasury.
Thanks to everything you’ve done, Nifl can rebuild. I will never forget the debt we owe all of you.
Please, rest yourself, if only for a moment. Fatigue clouds judgment... Allow me to keep watch in your stead.
I know I can come across as a little cold. I apologize. I’d love to share a joke, but that’s not how I’m made.
As long as I live...I will never forget that I failed in my duty to protect my people and my sisters...

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
My kingdom was as peaceful as any. Of others, we asked only for alliances, not conflict.
Nifl was as pure as the freshly fallen snow, in other words. But once Múspell invaded, everything changed.
A heart that desires only peace is precious, but its bearer is easy prey. I learned that the hard way.
Even if I want peace—no, BECAUSE I want peace—I must become strong.
I must be the blade that secures our realm. I can permit no further threat to Nifl’s sovereignty.
