Neutral IVs by default!

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

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Valter are +Atk and -Res. Valter's main stat is Atk so you should maximize it as much as possible with this IV. This helps him in taking out a wide range of foes in one hit. His Res is very low and is of less importance to it can be safely taken as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Valter to 10. At +10 Merges, Valter's Atk will reach such high levels that pushing it up higher is a waste, especially if you merge him up, use dragonflowers or inherit skills onto him. At this point, it would be better to opt with a +Spd IV instead to help him take less follow-up attacks and allow him to make some follow-up attacks on his own. With this IV, he reaches 40 Spd if you include Cursed Lance's effects. With a skill like Hone Fliers or Goad Fliers, this Spd level is enough to nail follow-up attacks on most of the units in the game.

Valter Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Valter's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1).
Grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+3. After combat, deals 6 damage to unit.
If unit's HP < 100% at start of combat, or if 【Penalty】 is active on foe, grants Atk/Spd/Def+5 to unit during combat and inflicts Special cooldown charge -1 on foe per attack during combat. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.)
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Cursed Lance

Any Cursed Lance upgrade strengthens the deault effect of Cursed Lance. Upon upgrade, its primary effect will now be identical to Fury 3.

The special effect refine is described below:

If

  • Valter's HP < 100% at start of combat or
  • a 【Penalty】is active on Valter's foe

Then, Cursed Lance will activate the following:

  • Grants +5 Atk/Spd/Def/Res to Valter
  • Inflicts Special cooldown charge -1 on foe per attack during combat.

Since you only have to meet at least one of the trigger conditions and the former can easily be met through Cursed Lance's self-damage and the latter can be met through Panic Ploy 3, not only are the effects very powerful, but they are easily accessible as well. This is a must get upgrade as it provides so much power to Valter without having very complex trigger conditions.

Valter 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.

Valter Strengths

Offensive boosts and easy access to Desperation!

Valter's weapon, Cursed Lance, grants +2 Atk/Spd and accelerates his special trigger by 1 counter at the cost of inflicting 4 HP to Valter after every battle. Not to mention, Cursed Lance has a fair Mt of 16! This makes the HP penalty well worth it and you can even turn the penalty into an advantage if you inherit Desperation onto Valter.

Access to a powerful special effect refine

Cursed Lance has a very powerful special effect refine that boosts Valter's overall powerful without hard trigger conditions. Read more about it in the weapon refine section.

Can Weaken Buffed Enemies

Panic Ploy 3 converts units' bonuses in Valter's cardinal directions into penalties, meaning all positive stat boosts turn into negative stat reductions. This affects all units in spaces above, below, to the right, or to the left of Valter. With his fairly high HP, this is a powerful skill for Valter, since it is easy for him to debuff many enemy units with lower HP. This skill is a hard counter to teams running Blade tomes! Those units are highly reliant on buffs to increase their attack power and this skill neutralizes all that if Valter wins the HP check. If you need more HP, try slapping a Sacred Seal like Squad Ace A 3 onto Valter.

The HP requirement also makes a 5★ Valter a good candidate for Summoner Support as he greatly benefits from the +5 HP. Be warned though as increasing Valter's HP makes it harder for Cursed Lance to trigger something like Desperation.

Valter Weaknesses

Low Res

Valter's Res only sits at 19 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Valter's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out.

Watch out especially for Merric as his green tome, Excalibur is strong against flying units. He is truly Valter's worst nightmare as even the weakest Merric can take out a highly-invested Valter.

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Valter takes 1.5x damage from bows and weapons effective on flying units. Be sure to keep them out of the range of archers and leave them to other units.

    • Thank you so much bro. That was really helpful. Will try to have my +10 merge project ASAP. I need 200 more orbs to try and pull for that. I hope there will be good 4* units coming on the future (maybe with the new year).
