Berkut Best Builds

Distant Riposte BerkutHOT

Special Skill IconIceberg

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a set based around Distant Counter and Quick Riposte 3. Giving him the +Res refinement for Berkut’s Lance, alongside Distant Def 3 will increase his stats to 37 Def and 41 Res when the foe initiates combat. That Defense stat increases to 43 on even numbered turns, letting him tank many attacks. Giving him the skill Quick Riposte to compensate for his low Spd stat allows him to work as an attack phase unit as well.

Dragon Slayer Berkut

Special Skill IconIceberg

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build assumes you will refine Berkut’s Lance+. He will gain Res+10 when a close range foe initiates combat, making him very powerful against breath users. If you give him the +Res refinement, his base Res increases by +4, so he will have a whopping 47 Res when taking an attack, meaning he can greatly reduce the power of manakete foes.

Not-so-Brave Berkut

Special Skill IconBonfire
Passive Skill BDrag Back
Sacred Seal IconAttack +3

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build is based around inheriting a Brave Lance. Death Blow 3 will help make up for his low Mt. Due to his low Def and Spd, you will mainly want him to move around allies with Reposition, and Drag Back foes so that someone else can finish them off.

Berkut Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Berkut's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
If foe initiates combat or if foe's HP = 100% at start of combat, grants Atk/Def/Res+5 to unit during combat.
Inflicts Atk/Def-3 on foe and neutralizes foe's bonuses to Atk/Def (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.) during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Dark Royal Spear

It is a built-in Lull Atk/Def 3 that allows Berkut to deal damage and receive less damage from a weakened foe. It does not change his playstyle from using Berkut's Lance+ so we strongly recommend getting this special refine.

Physical Wall ImagePhysical Wall Magic WallMagic Wall Effective ImageEffective Weapon Movement Assist ImageMovement Assist
No All Range Counterattack ImageAll-Range Counterattack RecoveryRecovery No Refresher ImageRefresher Assist Not Legendary ImageLegendary/Mythic

Berkut is a close ranged physical attacker (range = 1). 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 stat. In addition, he has skills that give him stat bonuses when the foe initiates combat, as well as a cavalry-exclusive buff.

Berkut's Strengths

Weapon skill increases resistance when under attack!

Berkut's default weapon skill Berkut's Lance will grant him Res+4 when an opponent initiates combat. By upgrading this weapon through the Weapon Refinery, he will gain Res+4 on top of the Res+7 gained when a foe initiates combat.

You can also opt for the more powerful Dark Royal Spear provides an Atk and Def bonus on top of a Res bonus! It also has a special refine which you can read more about here!

Increased allied cavalry units's survivability with Ward Cavalry

Berkut's C slot skill Ward Cavalry will grant an additional Def/Res+4 to cavalry units within 2 spaces during combat. Unlike Hone/Fortify skills, Spur/Drive/Ward buffs will stack, so you can get the most out of all your units equipped with these skills.

Blazing Flame deals heavy damage to multiple foes

Special Skill Area of Effect
Blazing Flame.png

Berkut's default special Blazing Flame deals damage to multiple enemies near the target before combat. Weakening your opponent before going into combat is a useful tactic, but if the foe has Vantage, this special may cause it to trigger during battle, so make sure to note which skills your opponent has.

Berkut's Weaknesses

Low Spd stat leads to many enemy follow-up attacks

Berkut's low Spd means he will almost always have to endure follow-up attacks. If you want to get the most out of this unit, you will want to boost his defensive stats so he can tank many attacks, give him a Brave Lance or Breaker skill, etc.

Why should I swallow my pride and fraternize with commoners? This is nothing less than total humiliation!
I have honed my skills unceasingly since my youth. As next in line for the imperial throne, it is my duty.
I take pride in the power I’ve worked so hard for.
Beavering away on another task? You’re a diligent creature, no doubt of that. You’d make a fine servant.
You there. Show me to a jeweler. Not for myself, I’ll have you know. Not that I owe you an explanation!
What am I doing? I’m polishing a ring, obviously. It’s...none of your concern. Begone! Now!

Oh, it’s you. Such a restless creature you are. It’s undignified. Be calm, and sit down for a moment, at least.
After so many battles, I can see that you have some skill as a leader. Though it pains me, I must admit it.
On my return to Rigel, you could even join my forces as a commander. What say you?
Hah! That "no" was both quick and firm. Of course, that’s the answer I expected from you.
Just be glad this is not Rigel. Your head would be rolling on the floor right now. Oh, well…
The fate of a great man is to have no one he might call a friend. But you... Is that what you are to me? Perhaps.
