Sumia Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (20) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (11) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (7) Def Bane ★★★★☆
Res (6) Res Boon ★★★☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Sumia are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Sumia to get a ton of follow-up attacks on her foes. It also protects her from hostile follow-up attacks. Her Res of is less importance and thus safe to be taken as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Sumia to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. At max merges, she reaches 46 Spd. This range allows her to score follow-up attacks on a wide range of foes. You can also go for a +Atk IV if you prefer raw damage! Only go through the Atk route if you can supplement her Spd with skills like Hone Fliers.

How to Use, Explanation

This build utilizes Sumia's weapon refine. Because of her increased stats, she has a lot of opportunity to one-shot enemy units by using her weapon in tangent to her A skill and Sacred Seal. Hit and Run will ensure she retreats to safety, but can be swapped out with another B skill of your choice.

Sumia Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Sumia's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
At start of combat, if foe's HP ≥ 75%, grants +4 to all stats during combat.
【Canto (2)】
After an attack, Assist skill, or structure destruction, unit can move 2 space(s).
(Unit moves according to movement type. Once per turn. Cannot attack or assist. Only highest value applied. Does not stack. After moving, if a skill that grants another action would be triggered, Canto will trigger again. Cannot warp a distance greater than 2 space(s).)
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Flower Lance

Flower Lance's refine enables【Canto (2)】, which allows Sumia to reposition herself to safety or within range of a dancer so she can take another action.

This opens up more strategic uses for her as a unit and can be very useful when paired with fliers that have skills such as Flier Formation 3 or Air Orders 3.

Sumia is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Sumia Strengths

Weapon Refine adds stats during combat!

Flower Lance grants Sumia +4 Atk to all her stats during combat. Additionally, Close Def 3 grants her +6 Def/Res during combat. This is a total of +10 Atk/Def/Res in the enemy phase.

It also grants【Canto (2)】, which will allow her to move again after performing certain actions.

Useful buff skill triggered by Movement Assists

Sumia's B Skill Atk/Def Link will give her and an ally Atk/Def+6 when one of them uses a movement assist like Swap or Reposition on the other. Since she learns Reposition by default, her skills have rather good synergy, allowing her to go offensive or play more of a support role.

You can fling her into the danger zone if the enemies are mostly consisted units covered by Close Def 3. That way, Sumia will tank and throw counterattacks onto them the next enemy phase!

Sumia Weaknesses

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Sumia 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.

Does the Order of Heroes have a pegasus stable? I’d love to help take care of the pegasi if you do.
That’s one thing I’m good at!
I’m part of Lord Chrom’s Shepherds. I was a trainee, but I became a much better fighter after I met my pegasus.
Out on patrol? Thank you for doing that. But please make sure you watch where you step.
I tripped right around here just a moment ago…
Would you like to try some flower fortunes with me? Don’t worry about getting an unlucky result.
That just means you’ll have to work hard to make sure it doesn’t come true!
I was just reading one of my favorite books: Mad Tales of a Bloodthirsty Falcon Knight, Volume 2.
I can lend you volume one if you’re interested.

I can do it. I can’t do it... I can do it. I can’t do it... I can— Oh, hello, {Summoner}.
I was just doing flower fortunes. I’m trying to figure out if I can become a proper Hero or not.
Fighting by your side has given me a new goal. I don’t want to be a klutz forever. I want to become stronger.
I want to become a Hero that looks like she belongs by your side. But I’m...just not that confident…
So I thought I’d consult the flowers. I can’t do it. I can do it... I can’t... I can!
Oh, thank goodness! The flower says I can do it! Now I just need to work hard to prove it right.
I’ll become your strongest wings!
