Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Grand Hero Battle, Arvis will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Res/-Def

The best IVs for Arvis are +Res and -Def. Arvis is not built to take blows from physical units to begin with so having some points off his Def would not harm his viability significantly. With that, you should maximize his Res as much as possible as he is very strong in that side of defense. Another reason to maximize his Res is because of Valflame which relies on Arvis having a high Res stat.

Take note that his Def is a superbane so you should get that merge as fast as possible!

+Res for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Arvis to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With this IV, he will reach a Res stat of 55 which is very fair even by modern standards. This allows you to tank magic hits and debuff a lot of enemies.

Arvis Best Builds

Adept Swordbreaker Arvis

Weapon Skill IconValflame
Special Skill IconIceberg

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build is one that does not require too much investment. By inheriting Triangle Adept, Arvis’s power will greatly increase against green units, which should help him cover his mediocre Spd stat. Additionally, giving him Swordbreaker will let him gain easy follow-up attacks against sword units, further increasing the battles where he is at an advantage. His C skill can be used to debut the opponent, or instead to raise your allies’ Atk as you see fit. This build may be changed around and kept flexible, such as swapping out his B skill for Recover Ring on a multi-map battle.

Arvis Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Arvis's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
At start of turn, inflicts Atk/Res-5 on foes within 3 columns and 3 rows centered on unit through their next actions.
Grants bonus to unit's Atk = total penalties on foe during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Valflame

Upon the special effect refine, Valflame will inflict a more powerful debuff on enemies. That is the upgrade bonus, but the special effect refine adds the total number of penalites to Arvis' Atk stat. Considering that Arvis has a handful of debuffs that already weaken the enemy, this effect capitalizes on said debuffs and grants Arvis a wide window to take out weakened foes.

Arvis' debuffs are very easy to apply so you will not have any problem utilizing this effect. Take note that even debuffs from other units will be considered! Run a team composed of debuffers and Arvis will surely hit very hard.

Arvis is a ranged magic attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Res stat.

Arvis's Strengths

Inflict Atk/Res debuffs with his exclusive weapon

Arvis's exclusive weapon Valflame inflicts a -4 Atk and Res debuff to foes with lower Res than him. Alongside Def Ploy, this is cast in all cardinal directions, so the range of this effect is very powerful. Foes with low Res stats will be further weakened to a point where they can easily be OHKO'ed.

Access to a powerful special effect refine

Valflame has access to a powerful special effect refine. It adds the total number of debuffs on the enemy to Arvis' attack stat. You can read more about it in the weapon refine section.

Excellent synergy between weapon and special

Special Skill Effect Range
Image of Growing Flame Range

He can damage foes over a wide range, thanks to his special skill Growing Flame. His weapon Valflame lowers the Res of multiple foes, so inflicting damage to multiple foes with lowered Res has a strong outcome.

Recover HP every turn with Recover Ring!

His exclusive skill Recover Ring lets him recover 10 HP at the start of every turn. Thanks to Recovery Ring, Arvis can survive a long time as long as he is able to keep just a bit of HP. Arvis will inflict penalties on the enemy by simply being there, so it is also possible to use him in this role.

Lowers the Def stat of enemies in all cardinal directions

His default B slot skill Def Ploy 3 will inflict Def-5 on foes with Res that is lower than his. Combine that with his exclusive weapon for an Atk/Res -4 and Def -5 debuff inflicted on ther foe all at once. With these powerful debuffs, you can assign him this particular role and leave the debuffing to Arvis

Arvis's Weaknesses

Rather frail against physical attacks

Arvis's HP and Def are nothing special, meaning that he is rather vulnerable to physical attacks. The chances of him getting attacked and subsequentially OHKO'ed by some sword or lance unit are pretty high, so keep him out of their danger areas and have your bulkier units cover him.

Struggles against other high Res units

He can only simultaneously cast 3 debuffs on units with a Res stat of 32 or lower. Ploy skills are dependent on the foe's Res stat, so high Res units like Yune or Deirdre will be totally safe from his debuffs.

Arvis as a Source Hero

Value of Skills ★★★★☆

Inherit Def Ploy 3

You may wish to use Arvis as a source for Def Ploy 3. However, since Arvis is obtained via Grand Hero Battle, the amount of duplicates you can obtain are limited. Think hard about whether or not you do not want this unit before using him as fodder.

This world is beautiful indeed. But it bears little resemblance to the world I’m building—one founded on ideals.
But not for long, I think.
You’re always rushing here and there. Your life is fraught with hardship—I suppose we have that in common.
Ideals never become reality without sacrifices... Sacrifices only a few could ever countenance.
I dealt with the usurper—I had no choice. To build a just world, Sigurd had to die.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
How do you envision this world? What form do you think it should take, {Summoner}?
Cast aside trifles, like who won or lost yesterday’s battle. What are your plans for shaping the world?
You understand what I’m getting at, don’t you? People like us...we have the power to change the world.
Your abilities are remarkable.
Understand, then, that I believe it is your duty to guide this world.
I, myself, will not stop until I can return to my world and mold it into its ideal form.
For the sake of that task, I ask you: What sort of world would you like to see? I must hear your answer.

      Congrats bro. That's really special. I'm approaching the 40th summon so yeah i probably will get her or shamir. Really wanted both tho.

    • >>[20]
      Idunn is best built as a sustain omni-tank. Sol or Aether are both good options (I would personally prefer Sol). Atk Smoke 3 and her default B skills are good. You should switch the A skill to at least Distant Ward and ideally Distant Counter. The S Seal should be a Sturdy or Mirror Stance skill, whichever you think would fill the niche better on your team.
