Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (16) HP Superboon ★★☆☆☆
Atk (23) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) Spd Bane ★★★★☆
Def (5) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (12) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-HP

The best IVs for Micaiah are +Atk and -HP. Since she has a 1.5x damage multiplier against 2 kinds of units, taking a +Atk stat is best for her as it maximizes said multiplier. Her HP is of less importance so it can be safely taken as her bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Micaiah to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With a huge raw Atk stat, she can take lots of cavalry and armored foes with 1 blow! If you prefer a more durable Micaiah, you can go for a +Res IV instead.

Micaiah Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Micaiah's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Effective against armored and cavalry foes. Grants Res+3. if foe uses bow, dagger, magic, or staff, reduces damage from foe's first attack by 30% during combat.
At start of combat, if units HP ≥ 50%, grants Atk/Res+5 during combat and unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Thani

The special effect for Thani grants +5 Atk/Res to Micaiah and guarantees her a follow-up attack provided that she is at least at 50% HP or above. Not only is it a powerful effect especially against magic users, but it takes away the need for a skill like Quick Riposte 3.

In our Budget Micaiah build, we usually recommend a Quick Riposte 3 Sacred Seal, but if you are able to specially refine Thani, you can go for other Sacred Seals such as Death Blow 3! This increases Micaiah's overall power.

Make sure to partner her up with healers to always meet the trigger condition.

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

Micaiah Strengths

Micaiah.jpg

Thani is strong against both armored and cavalry units

Thani deals effective damage against both armored and cavalry foes. This grants Micaiah many favorable match-ups! As seen above, she can easily deal with the dreaded Idunn in most situations.

In addition, Thani reduces the damage she takes from ranged armored and cavalry foes by 30%!

Access to a special effect refine!

Thani has access to a special effect refine that provides her not only with extra stats, but it also guarantees follow-up attacks as well! Read more about it in the weapon refine section.

Unique assist skill in Sacrifice!

Micaiah's Sacrifice converts the penalties on an ally into bonuses and restores their HP by an amount relating to Micaiah's current HP.

This multi-effect skill is very helpful and can save your team in many situations! When playing Micaiah, keep in mind that you have a skill like Sacrfice—a skill that can turn the tide of battle when used with the proper timing.

Strong Against Ranged Attacks

Distant Def 3 grants Micaiah +6 Def/Res in combat if she is attacked by ranged foes. This means that she is a good match-up against foes who use daggers, bows, tomes and staves.

This completely stacks with the damage reduction effects of Thani.

Slows Enemy Specials

Guard 3 inflicts special cooldown charge -1 per attack if Micaiah's HP ≥ 80% at the start of combat. This allows Micaiah and her allies to take less damage from enemies. This skill is also very helpful in Grand Hero Battles where delaying enemy specials is very important as enemy specials in those maps are very powerful.

Additionally, this makes Micaiah a great match-up for units running set-ups that make specials very quick to trigger such as Slaying Edge+ or Brave Sword as the weapon skill and slapping Sacred Seals such as Flashing Blade and Quickened Pulse for quick Moonbow or Glimmer activations

Micaiah Weaknesses

Low Def

Micaiah's Def only sits at 18 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for physical units to take her out. Be mindful of Micaiah's positioning in relation to physical units that can easily take her out.

Inheriting Distant Def 3

Micaiah can be used to inherit the skill Distant Def 3. However, Micaiah is a powerful Blue Tome unit with strong weapon skills, so we recommend training your first copy of Micaiah first without foddering her off.

Such cowardly tactics.

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
I saw a lovely sunset the other day.
Even though I’ve been summoned to a different world, nature continues to astound me with its beauty.
People continue to fight and kill each other, no matter the world, or the era. Yet, still... I find myself…
I don’t really like crowds. Sometimes, I sneak off to the forest to catch a break.
I’m guessing the guiding hand of this army might need a break, too!
I found some delicious-looking fruit while I was strolling around the castle grounds. Want some?
I was thinking... While I’m here, I can be my true self. Here, my past has no hold on me.
And when I think that... I can’t help but wish that I could stay here forever.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
You know, you’re kind and thoughtful, {Summoner}.
My brother and I live apart, now...but the way you worry about me reminds me of him.
It’s strange to feel this way, yet it’s also intensely familiar…
The skies that separate me from my brother are vast. But I’m starting to think of you as family, too.
Still, there’s something I haven’t been able to tell you yet—something about myself.
Even now, I can’t reveal everything about myself or my powers.
Someday, though... I’m certain I’ll be able to tell you everything.

    • 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).
