Exalt Chrom Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (25) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) Spd Bane ★★★★☆
Def (8) 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

Neutral Stats for Exalt Chrom

Neutral IVs are best for Exalt Chrom, as he has 3 superbanes that can affect his usability greatly. Another argument for neutral IVs is Sealed Falchion's effect that boosts all his stats by +5 whenever he engages combat with HP < 100%. It's better for him to utilize that skill and become a well-balanced hero instead.

Exalt Chrom Best Builds

Heavy Blade Exalt ChromHOT

Special Skill IconMoonbow

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

Heavy Blade and Desperation are required for this build. Through combat or use of Reciprocal Aid, bring his HP below 50% so that he can prevent enemy counterattacks. This will allow him to gain a guaranteed follow-up attack, and if his Atk exceeds that of the foe, he can reliably trigger his special skill and inflict massive damage to foes.

Passive Skill C: -

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a low cost low investment build for E!Chrom. With Sealed Falchion and Close Def 3, Chrom will gain +11 Def/Res when the foe initiates combat, making him quite a bulky fighter. Fury will make the effect of Sealed Falchion easier to trigger, so use Chrom to finish off foes to quickly gain use of its power.

Exalt Chrom Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Exalt Chrom's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Effective against dragon foes. If unit’s HP < 100% at start of combat or if【Bonus】is active on unit, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +5 during combat.
【Bonus】 All effects that last "for 1 turn" or "that turn only." Includes bonuses granted by a skill like Rally or Hone and positive status effects (extra movement or effects like Dominance).

At start of combat, if foe's HP ≥ 75%, grants Atk/Spd/Def+5 to unit during combat and foe cannot make a follow-up attack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Sealed Falchion

With any upgrade you take for Sealed Falchion, it will make it easier to grab the +5 Atk/Spd/Def/Res buff because it adds another trigger condition. If a bonus is active on Sealed Falchions wielder, they will now activate the buff too.

Additionally, and more imporantly, the sword will now grant an additional +5 Atk/Spd/Def buff during combat it the enemy is at least at 75% HP. It also blocks follow-up attacks from the enemy so this is a very valuable effect.

For Chrom, it makes him very bulky against physical units as the only thing from stopping him becoming a physical wall is his susceptibility to follow-up attacks.

E!Chrom 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.

E!Chrom Strengths

Sealed Falchion's Buff Synergizes with Fury 3

Sealed Falchion grants Chrom +5 to all stats if his HP is 99% or less. He can also deal damage to himself through Fury 3, which grants an additional +3 to all stats. This makes Sealed Falchion easy to activate. Both skills give a total of +8 to all stats which is very helpful to Chrom.

If Sealed Falchion is specially refined, it can grant him an additional +5 Atk/Spd/Def! If you are at this point and can afford some more investment onto Chrom, you can go for Fury 4 instead. He will be a beast of a unit when it comes to stats when all said is done!

Chill Def 3 Lowers Tanky Foes' Def

Chill Def 3 inflicts -7 to the unit with the highest Def in the enemy team. This makes Exalt Chrom a great unit to fight against powerful, high-Def stat units such as Legendary Tiki (Young) and Idunn. Another perk of Chill Def 3 is that it affects them regardless of Chrom's position on the map making it easy for Chrom's teammates to take advantage of it as well.

However, it only affects them until their next action, so the penalty wears off if they are granted another action by support units. The penalty will be re-applied to them the next turn, though.

Sword Units' SP Doubled by Sword Valor 3

Sword Units gain double SP, provided that Exalt Chrom survives the battle. This is a very helpful skill when it comes to training sword units as it makes it easier for them to get valuable skills that greatly ease the difficulty in training these units.

E!Chrom Weaknesses

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

Exalt Chrom 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!

Seems it’s past time that I start my daily training. If I slack off, somebody will scold me—I just know it.
I like to keep my feet firmly planted on the ground. But the view from this guy’s back is nice, too…

How about a race to that hill over there? Fresh air always helps me blow away the cobwebs.
Hm? This apple? Well...I was going to give it to my buddy here, but it looked so good…

I’ve got a question for you. When somebody says "knight," what does that mean to you?
Someone noble—someone who would sacrifice themselves for their allies. Hmm…
A warrior who battles with pride and who doesn’t flinch in the face of battle? I see.
So, that’s not quite how I think about things…
The willingness to sacrifice yourself to save someone else is admirable, certainly. Not everyone can do that.
But think about it... If you sacrifice yourself, you’ll end up hurting the people who care about you. Right?
Yeah, you got me. I’m talking about you, {Summoner}.
You face some hard decisions. If you want to protect others, you’d better protect yourself first.
We can help each other. Let’s talk about our hardships and share our ideals…
We’re comrades, now. That bond can’t be broken—ever!
