IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Spd/-Def

The best IVs for Linde are +Spd and -Def. Since Linde relies on follow-up attacks to deal damage, a +Spd IV is best for her. It also allows her to take less follow-up attacks from foe. This boosts both her offensive and survivability capabilities. Her low Def is of less importance, so it is safe to take Def as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Linde to 10. For the same reasons above, Linde should aim to increase her Spd as much as possible. It is a utility skill that will help her both in offense and defense.

Linde Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Linde's Evolved Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
At start of turn, if adjacent allies use sword, axe, lance, dragonstone, or beast damage, grants Atk+6 to those allies for 1 turn.
If unit is within 2 spaces of a sword, axe, lance, dragon, or beast ally, grants Atk/Spd+5 to unit during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Dark Aura

Dark Aura is a more offensive weapon compared to Aura. The bonuses are very easy to trigger and take advantage of as melee units would always appreciate a +6 Atk. Linde also benefits a lot from the +5 Atk/Spd as she is mainly a speedy attacker. This gives Linde the ability to both support and deal damage in battles.

If you do not need the heal from Aura, we strongly recommend evolving it into Dark Aura.

Effect of Linde's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
At start of turn, grants Atk+6 to adjacent magic and staff allies for 1 turn.
If unit is within 2 spaces of magic or staff ally, grants Atk/Spd+5 during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

Special Refine is a good option too

Aura has an identical effect, but requires magic and staff allies instead. Like our verdict for Dark Aura, this is a must have against the normal Aura as well. Before choosing, you should assess which units you would pair Linde with or which team compositions you plan her to be in to know the better option.

Linde 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.

Linde Strengths

Speedy blue mage

Linde has solid offensive stats that allows her to become a deadly offensive attacker. She sports 35 Atk and 36 Spd at Lv. 40 that allows her to score some follow-up attacks whenever up against enemy units. Her kit is kind of outdated, but if you put some investment into her, she is a solid unit. If you need a bit more stats, you can get her Resplendent Outfit which gives her +2 to all stats. Find out more about her Resplendent Outfit here!

Heal allies with Aura

Her default weapon, Aura, restores 5 HP to adjacent allies every time she initiates combat. You can easily heal up 30 HP worth in a turn if 3 allies are adjacent to her if one is a refresher-assist unit. If you slap Breath of Life onto her, she can heal 72 HP across 3 allies. This is a very niche strategy, but it can be helpful in modes like Mjolnir Strike, Arena, Aether Raids or maybe even Rival Domains.

Weapon upgrades allow for offensive buffs

If you are not a fan of Aura's healing, the weapon has 2 available upgrades that boost Linde and her allies' offensive stats. You can read more about these two upgrades here!

Linde Weaknesses

Low Def

Linde's Def only sits at 14 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for physical users to take him out. Be mindful of Linde's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take her out.

Value of Skills ★☆☆☆☆

Not Recommended for Skill Inheritance

Linde does not possess any skills that are worth inheriting onto another unit. We recommend training and investing in her instead. If you get multiple copies of her, you can aim for a +10 merge Linde or send her home for some Hero Feathers.

If you really need skills from Linde, her skills are available from more common 4★ or 3★ units. Consider all your resources before fodderring off Linde.
