Camus - Sable Knight: Basic Information

Color / Weapon Type / Move Type
What Kind of Character Are They? Can only be obtained as a reward from a Grand Hero Battle
・Weapon skill allows for a counterattack at any range
・Nullifies skills that are effective on cavalry

Camus Skills at 5★

Might: 16  Range: 1
Enables counterattack regardless of distance if this unit is attacked.

Cooldown Count = 4

Camus Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (8) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (9) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (7) No Def IV ★★★☆☆
Res (4) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Grand Hero Battle, Camus will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.


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

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Camus to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With this IV, he can reach 40 Spd which is at a range wherein he can score lots of follow-up attacks if he has ample support from allies.

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This skillset uses Blue Flame and Steady Stance. Camus can be a tank for physical damage by raising his Def with Steady Breath 4 and delaying the enemy’s special skill. This will reduce the damage he takes, so counterattacking and gaining a guaranteed follow-up through Quick Riposte allows you to turn the tables on an enemy.

How to Use, Explanation

This skillset aims to make the most of Camus’s counterattacking capability. With his low Res stat, Camus will need to make use of Vantage 3 in order to counterattack and takedown tome wielding units. As for a C skill, we recommend a cavalry-exclusive buff skill or something to boost his party’s stats.

This is a high budget build that utilizes Gradivus' refine to boost Camus' firepower while granting him sustain. You can opt for another Special like Bonfire or Noontime, and can also opt to stack Atk/Spd Solo 3 as a Sacred Seal or Mystic Boost 3 for even more sustain.

Camus Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Camus' Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Unit can counterattack regardless of foe's range.
If foe initiates combat or if foe's HP = 100% at the start of combat, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 to unit during combat, and also, if unit deals damage to foe during combat, restores 7 HP to unit. (Triggers even if 0 damage is dealt.)
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Gradivus

Gradivus' refine grants Camus Atk/Sd/Def/Res+4 and will heal him after combat, even if he dealt 0 damage.

This gives him bulkiness and sustain, enabling Camus to be able to tank more hits and the added stats ups his one-shot potential.

Camus Roles, Strengths, and Weaknesses

Camus is a close ranged physical attack phase unit. Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def.

Camus Strengths

Exclusive weapon allows him to counterattack at any range

Camus's legendary weapon Gradivus will let him counterattack regardless of distance when the foe initiates combat. This will let him turn the tables on bow and dagger users, so he functions great as the party's physical wall.

With the weapon refine, it will grant Camus Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 and will heal him even if he dealt 0 damage during combat. This grants him higher firepower and sustain.

Area of effect special lets him inflict damage to multiple foes at once

Special Skill Effect Range
Image of Growing Thunder Range

Camus's default special skill Growing Thunder will let him inflict damage 3 spaces above and below the target foe. When multiple foes are lined up in a row or terrain is making it difficult to attack certain foes, this special can be of extreme use.

Can nullify enemy's effective against cavalry skills

With his default A skill Grani's Shield, Camus can neutralize the effects of skills effective on cavalry. As a cavalry unit, Camus would normally take 1.5x damage from foes with weapons that are effective on cavalry, but this skill will let him supress that damage to the regular amount of 1x.

Possesses a powerful cavalry-only type buff

Camus's default C skill Goad Cavalry will give Spd/Atk+4 to all cavalry units within 2 spaces during combat. Camus's cavalry related skills will come in very handy for a 'Horse-Emblem' party.

Access to a Special effect refine!

He has access to a Special effect refine and you can read more about it in the Weapon Refinement section!!

Camus Weaknesses

Hard to make use of his all-range counter due to his poor Res stat

With his low Res stat, Camus cannot withstand attacks from magical foes such as mages, making his counterattack ability slightly hard to take full advantage of. If the foe is a red mage or possibly a blue mage with low Atk, Camus can withstand an attack or two, but a blow from a green mage will absolutely wipe him out, so keep him away from magic attackers as much as possible.

Camus as a Source Hero

Camus Avatar

Value of Skills ★★★★☆

Inheriting Grani's Shield or Goad Cavalry

Camus can be used to inherit Grani's Shield, as well as Goad Cavalry. While these are both useful skills, Camus himself is a pretty good unit, so we recommend keeping and training at least one Camus around before foddering off or merging any duplicates.

An Order of Heroes, hm? I can respect those who fight loyally for their motherland.
I am certain everyone has someone in their past that they will never forget...
What is it? Is there something on my face?
I live and breathe for my motherland. Will I bleed for her? Every last drop.
My early career as a knight was at a remote post. Training was the only way to pass the time.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
I wonder when it was that I first began actively shutting others out.
Obviously my experiences played a part, but since fighting at your side, I feel my thinking has changed.
At first my isolation protected me from the pain of losing someone I cared about...or so I thought.
But to allow that fear to prevent genuine connection with others is to rob yourself of their strength.
You taught me that, and you will always have my gratitude.
