Atk (25) No Attack IV ★★★★★

Def (6) 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 and -HP

Alm's recommended IVs are +Atk and -HP. Upgrading Alm's weapon through the Weapon Refinery allows him to attack twice, so simply having a higher Atk stat will make him most powerful. On the other hand, it is ideal to have a lowered HP stat as it can be raised through the Wepaon Refinery, but since he will usually be able to strike down foes before they have a chance to attack him any flaw is okay as long as he as an Atk asset.

Refinement Special Spiral Type AlmHOT

Weapon Skill IconFalchion
Special Skill IconMoonbow

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build is centered around upgrading Alm’s weapon skill Falchion in the Weapon Refinery. By equipping him with Death Blow and the Quickened Pulse seal, his special will activate on his second attack, which will take down most manaketes in one strike. By giving him Special Spiral, his special will trigger each time after his first attack, making this build extremely strong.

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a build that uses as little skill inheritance as possible. The Phantom Spd 3 Seal is essential so that you can use Alm’s Windsweep 3 against a wide range of foes. Additionally, giving him Fury 3 will increase not just his Spd stat (which is needed for Windsweep), but all of his stats across the board, making him useful in many scenarios.

Alm Best Weapon Refinement

The Effect of Alm's Weapon When Refined

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Effective against dragon foes. At start of odd-numbered turns, restores 10 HP.
If unit's HP = 100% at start of combat and unit initiates combat, unit attacks twice, but deals 5 damage to unit after combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We Recommend the Special Effect Upgrade

We highly recommend the special effect upgrade for Alm's exclusive weapon Falchion. When he has max HP, he will be able to attack consecutively, similar to Brave Sword+. Falchion can also recover HP, making it easy to reach max HP, and being able to attack consecutively with the dragon effective Falchion blade means he can pack a serious punch, so if you have Alm in your barracks you should absolutely prioritize upgrading his weapon above all other ones.

Alm is a close ranged physical attack phase unit. 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. Additionally, his weapon is effective in manaketes, letting him deal an extra 1.5 times damage toward them.

Alm's Strengths

Alm in Combat

Slay Dragons and Recover HP with Falchion!

Alm's weapon skill Falchion deals bonus damage to dragon type foes (manakete), and its effect allows him to regain HP. Considering the high number of manaketes with high stats that are difficult to take down, Alm is an excellent anti-dragon unit in the FEH meta.

Extremely Powerful Through Weapon Refinement

Alm's weapon can even be upgraded through the Weapon Refinery. Doing so gives him the powerful effect of being able to attack twice when at max HP. It does have the setback of dealing 5 damage to Alm after combat, but with Falchion;s healing effect, it is relatively easy to maintain HP.

Nullify Enemy Counterattacks with Windsweep

Alm's skill Windsweep 3 prevents him from making a follow-up attack and prevents a foe from counterattacking. His Spd must exceed the foe's by at least 1, but it will allow him to attack any foe at no risk to himself.

Alm's Weaknesses

Windsweep Can Be Hard to Activate

Alm's weak point comes from the fact that his Spd stat is not inherently all that high, so Windsweep can be difficult to make use of. In order to really make the most of this skill, you will need to use skill inheritance to raise his stats and equip him with the Phantom Spd 3 seal.

Very Weak to Magic Attacks

Another weakness comes from his low Res stat, meaning he will take a lot of damage from magic attackers. Be sure to use Alm while remaining cautious of magic opponents.

Alm as a Source Hero

Value of Skills ★★★★★

Inheriting Windsweep 3

You many wish to use Alm as a source for Windsweep 3. However, Alm is extremely good when his weapon has been refined, so we recommend that you hang onto at least one unit and raise them before foddering off any duplicates.

This place has so many things I’ve never seen before and all kinds of people I never thought I’d meet.
Amazing, really, and sort of intimidating.
The Deliverance fights to free Zofia from Chancellor Desaix. A hard battle, and who knows when it will end?
Checking in on everyone? Sure you are. I need to do it too as leader of the Deliverance.
Mind telling me your story? I don’t know much about much, so you’ll find me a ready listener.
I was training with my sword, but mostly because if I don’t, I hear my grandfather’s voice in my head.
He’s Sir Mycen—and someone you don’t want to disappoint. So I always stay on top of my training.

Good timing. I’ve been meaning to talk to you about something, {Summoner}.
My grandfather refused to let me ever leave my home, Ram Village.
So I don’t know much about the world.
Since you summoned me here, I’ve met many different people. So many...surprises.
When it comes to you, I feel a bond different than the one I have with my friends.
I’m...relieved? Or...at ease? Really, I’ve only felt this way with one other person.
It’s more than just you showing me all of these new things—much bigger than that, really.
This might sound sappy, but I’ll say it anyway. Meeting you was like the dawn of something new. Thanks.
