IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)


The best IVs for Corrin (M) are +Spd and -Res. Corrin's (M) exclusive weapon, Yato, can increase his Spd if Corrin initiates combat. Further increasing his Spd through IVs boosts his offensive ability to perform follow-up attacks. It also boosts his survivability by a bit as this will also make Corrin (M) less susceptible to follow-up attacks from the foe. Corrin's (M) Res is already low and he won't do well against magic attackers anyway, so it is the go-to bane.

Corrin (M) Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Corrin's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+2.
If unit is within 2 spaces of support partner, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 to that ally during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Yato

Since Corrin really needs a Support unit on his team to realize his full potential, having this bonus skill will allow him to get an extra boost to his stats while also returning the favor of boosted stats to an ally.

Corrin 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.

Corrin's Strengths

Can Increase Spd with Yato

Corrin (M) can obtain the exclusive weapon the Yato at 5 stars. The Yato gives him a +4 Spd buff whenever he attacks enemies. With a +Spd IV Corrin (M), you can reach 39 Spd with this weapon. This makes Corrin (M) able to execute follow-up attacks on a wide number of foes.

Well-Rounded Stats

Corrin (M) has a few weak points when it comes to stats and although not the best at offense, he can still dish out respectable damage to enemies due to his skills and inherently good Spd stat.

The only stat you should worry about is his Res, which you can always make up for through superior positioning and strategy. If you are using a +IV Res Corrin (M), he will get +4 to the stat, making him a pretty well-rounded unit.

Corrin's (M) Weaknesses

Low Res

Corrin (M) has low Res. If Corrin is attacked by a Magical attacker, he will take a lot of damage. Be careful of enemies that either use Tomes or Dragonstones as they can deal high damage to Corrin, especially Reinhardt who has a Blue Tome that is guaranteed to one-shot Corrin. Always be mindful of Corrin's positioning in relation to the enemies who pose a threat to him.

Yato isn't Very Strong

The Yato can be strengthened through Weapon Refinement. However, the effect that it provides you isn't really that strong. We recommend switching his weapons to Wo Dao+ or Armorsmasher+ if you really want to use Corrin (M)

Value of Skills ★☆☆☆☆

No Skills Recommended to Inherit.

Corrin (M) does not possess any skill that we recommend inheriting off to another Hero. Instead, you should build around Corrin (M). However, Corrin's (M) strength lies only in Weapon Refinement so that he can get Yato. If you do not plan to refine his weapon, we suggest sending him home.

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
What path will this realm follow? It’s not my place to make any pivotal decisions. You must help them.
I once had to make a hard decision: to side with the kingdom of my birth or with the one that raised me.
It reassures me to see you do patrols. I used to do the same at my castle. Brings back memories!
I wish I could show you my castle. There’s so much to do there. It’s even got a tree house—where I sleep!
I was just thinking about my siblings. I’ve got quite a few. Do you have any brothers or sisters?

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
It’s good to see you. We’ve spent so much time together, I’m uneasy when you’re not around.
I’d like to just keep you where I can see you, but people would call me overprotective. Heh.
I’ve felt...overprotected my whole life, so it’s a strange feeling to want to do it myself.
You are obviously essential to the realm’s defense, so it’s natural to protect you, I suppose.
I guess I’m saying we’ve got your back, so don’t worry about what path to choose. Just keep going.
