Atk (22) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (10) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (7) 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 Ishtar are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Ishtar to get a ton of follow-up attacks on her foes. It is best for her to take a bane in Res because she can afford to do so. Her Def is already very low and both Def/HP stats are superbanes for her—this makes it pretty unwise for her to take banes in Def and HP. Definitely go for a -Res as much as possible!

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Ishtar to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. Her Spd will be in the mid 40s at this point. Combined with Mjölnir and Swift Sparrow 2, she can easily score follow-up attacks on most units in the game.

Ishtar 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.

Ishtar Strengths

Extremely high Spd makes way for follow-up attacks and quick Moonbow activations

On top of Ishtar's decent Spd, she gains a total of +10 Spd when initiating attacks in the player phase because of Mjölnir and Swift Sparrow 2. This makes it easy for her to score follow-up attacks especially if she has high merge count.

Because Mjölnir accelerates Isthar's special trigger, Moonbow will only have a cooldown of 1. This means Ishtar will be able to trigger Moonbow on a follow-up attack.

If you have the resources to do so, consider upgrading to Swift Sparrow 3!

Has the powerful Passive B Skill Vantage

With her default B Skill Vantage equipped, Ishtar can counterattack an enemy before their attack when she has less than 75%. If you are able to manage his HP amount efficiently, this skill will allow you to ensure you can bring down an enemy even when defending. This only works on units tha Ishtar can land counterattacks on!

Vantage, though a powerful skill, does not really jive well with the rest of Ishtar's kit. We recommend inheriting a skill like Desperation instead. Check out the builds we have for Ishtar!

Gives an Atk bonus to entire team on odd-numbered turns

Thanks to Odd Atk Wave, Ishtar and her allies will gain Atk +6 at the start of odd-numbered turns. When combined with Swift Sparrow 2, she will gain a total bonus of Atk+10, making her a pretty strong magical attacker. This skill is excellent for support as well, meaning that you could keep Ishtar on the team to buff her teammates!

Again, upgrade to Swift Sparrow 3 if Ishtar is one of your main units. It will be well worth it!

Ishtar Weaknesses

Low Def

Ishtar's Def only sits at 21 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for physical units to take her out. Be mindful of Ishtars' positioning in relation to physical units that can easily take her out.

For Ishtar, her best defense against against said units is offense. Take them out in the player phase where Ishtar is most powerful!

Tell me, {Summoner}... Do you have feelings for anyone?
Whether or not they return your love, or if it is unrequited...
I know this question is sudden. I ask because I must understand something...
Not long ago, I fought for one I loved deeply.
I fought even though I knew this path was wrong, both as a warrior and as a woman.
There may be a time when you must choose your path, as I did...
Promise me one thing. When that time comes, do not make a choice that you will live to regret.

      Congrats bro. That's really special. I'm approaching the 40th summon so yeah i probably will get her or shamir. Really wanted both tho.

    • >>[20]
      Idunn is best built as a sustain omni-tank. Sol or Aether are both good options (I would personally prefer Sol). Atk Smoke 3 and her default B skills are good. You should switch the A skill to at least Distant Ward and ideally Distant Counter. The S Seal should be a Sturdy or Mirror Stance skill, whichever you think would fill the niche better on your team.
