Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (24) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (27) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (5) No Spd IV ★★☆☆☆
Def (9) Def Boon ★★★★★
Res (6) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Def/-Spd

The Best IVs for B! Hector are +Def and -HP. With his superboon in Def, B! Hector gains Def+4, making him a powerful tank, and also making Maltet's follow-up effect even easier to trigger. Since he will gain a guaranteed follow-up regardless of his Spd, this is the ideal dump stat.

+Atk for a +10 Merge Project

If you are trying to merge a +10 B! Hector, we recommend +Atk. With an Atk asset, Hector's Atk will reach 60, allowing him to fell even more foes. If you really want to focus on his tanking abilities, Def or Res will work as well.

Brave Hector Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Brave Hector'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). Neutralizes "effective against armored" bonuses. If unit's HP ≥ 25% and foe initiates combat, neutralizes unit's penalties during combat and unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.
If foe initiates combat or if foe's HP = 100% at start of combat, inflicts Atk/Def-6 on foe during combat and foe cannot make a follow-up attack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Maltet

Brave Hector is already a solid unit in both phases because of his stats and kit. In fact, he has one of the best player phase skill in Bold Fighter 3 and the best version of Distant Counter available in Ostian Counter. Getting the special effect Refine for Maltet powers-up Brave Hector even more as it allows him to debuff enemies' Atk/Def in both phases! There is no reason to skip this upgrade if you use Brave Hector a lot. This allows him to receive less damage and deal more damage to enemies.

Brave Hector is a close-range physical attacker. When the effects of the Weapon Triangle are not taken into account, the damage he deals will be equal to his Atk minus the foes's Def. Additionally, he has a skill that allows him to counterattack at any range.

Brave Hector Strengths

Guaranteed follow-up when the foe initiates combat

B!Hector's exclusive weapon Maltet gives him a guaranteed follow-up attack when the foe initiates combat. This will happen regardless of the difference in Spd between units, so being able to easily dish out extra damage when attacked is a big strength of Hector.

Guaranteed follow-up when he initiates combat as well

B!Hector has the armor only skill Bold Fighter, which also grants him a guaranteed follow-up attack when initiating combat, as well as special cooldown charge +1. This means that when initiating combat, Ignis will almost always trigger, allowing him to take down most enemies.

Can counterattack regardless of range

Hector's A skill Ostian Counter will let him counterattack ranged foes such as bow and tome users. This skill is essentially a more powerful version of Distant Counter, which lets him easily turn the tables on foes who attack Hector.

Powerful weapon upgrades!

Maltet has access to both a weapon upgrade efffect and a special refinement effect. Its weapon upgrade effect neutralizes effects that are effective against armored units and its special refinement effect debuffs enemies' Atk/Def! You can read more about it in the weapon refine section.

Brave Hector Weaknesses

Susceptible to enemy follow-ups

With his low Spd stat, B! Hector will have to endure many follow-up attacks. Unlike Legendary Hector, Brave Hector does not have a skill to prevent enemy follow-up attacks, so it is important to have a support unit to buff his defensive stats when needed, or equip him with a skill to make him less susceptible to these follow-up attacks.

Weak to weapons effective on armored units

As an armored unit, B! Hector will take additional damage from weapons like Slaying Lance or Hammer. Be sure and check which weapons your opponents are using before getting too close.

Brave Micaiah Icon Brave Micaiah Brave Ephraim Icon Brave Ephraim Brave Camilla Icon Brave Camilla Fallen Tiki (Young) Icon Fallen Tiki (Young)

Allies with Falchion or Dragon Effective Weapons

B! Hector is a very tanky blue unit, and he excels at taking down red units in both the enemy and player phase. Having an ally like Legendary Marth or Alm that can counter dragons will increase his survivability.

Allies who can boost mobility

As an armored unit, B!Hector can only move one space at a time. Therefore, party members with Guidance and Armor March are very useful for helping Hector get across the map. In particular, a hero with a refresher skill, or the Sacred Seal Armored Boots can significantly increase Hector's mobility.

Heroes with armor-effective weapons

Despite his incredible Def, B!Hector is still susceptible to attacks from foes with weapons that are effective on armor. Edt and Oboro are the same color as Hector, but you will often encounter many +10 merged versions in PvP modes, and if they survive an attack from Hector, they will likely be able to wipe him out afterward, so leave these foes to another ally.

▼Magic attackers

B! Hector's Res stat is pretty average, but his Spd is low, so he will often have to eat enemy follow-up attacks. A magic attacker like Nino or Yune can deal massive damage to Hector, so watch out. Units like Veronica and Bridal Fjorm can prevent a counterattack, which allow them to sweep B! Hector pretty easily when the opportunity presents itself. When possible, avoid taking magic damage from foes.

Inheriting Bold Fighter or Even Res Wave

Brave Hector can be used to inherit Bold Fighter or Even Res Wave. However, B! Hector is a very powerful blue armored unit, so for the most part, you should get these skills elsewhere and merge any Hector duplicates you pick up. Even Res Wave is obtainable as a Sacerd Seal as well.

    Quotes: Castle

    See Castle Quotes
    Uther... I wish I could have been at your side to aid you, Brother…
    This here is the freezing lance Maltet. Just like Armads, it’s counted among the legendary weapons of Elibe.
    That said, wielding it is quite different from wielding an axe…
    Don’t get too close. One wrong step and this heavy armor could crush you flat. Hahaha! I’m only joking, friend!
    Do be careful around me, though…
    Daily training is essential if you want to move around in heavy armor like this. Care to join me?
    Once you get used to being sore all the time, it’s actually quite fun!
    Hey, what’s with that strange look you’re giving me? Oh, this? It’s just a book.
    What?! Aw, come on. I read! A lord has to have some refinement!

    Lv 40 Dialogue

    See Lv 40 Dialogue
    Hey, let me ask you a question... What qualities do you suppose are most important for a ruler to have?
    I’ve been thinking about this since I succeeded the throne. And aside from bravery, I’m at a total loss…
    The respect of the people, you say? Hm... Without the backing of the people, one isn’t qualified to rule…
    Yes, I think that makes good sense.
    However, respect is not something you can see with your eyes.
    Huh? Seeing isn’t always believing? There you go again, doling out wisdom faster than I can keep up!
    Well, if that’s the expectation set for me as a ruler, then I’ll just have to meet it.
    For those who have put their faith in me...and for my brother.

      • >>[155] sounds good imo. enemy phase monster. hey, if it works, it works!

      • >>[18] I'd say take the -Spd/Res because he does not really need Spd and the extra Res helps.
        for B skills, you can pick whatever you need for Hector. Both are good but I think Special Fighter is better since it works for both phases. Bold fighter only works in the player phase (when attacking)
        with the new weapon refine, he becomes a solid multi-phase unit so hmm I thinnk get special fighter
