Summer Xander is a close 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.

Summer Xander Strengths

Buffs Atk if HP is Higher than Foe's

Fire Boost 3 grants +6 Atk if Summer Xander's HP ≥ foe’s HP+3. Unlike Death Blow 3, it also activates when Summer Xander performs counterattacks, making it a goood enemy phase skill as well.

Speeds up the special cooldown of allied infantry

The C skill Infantry Pulse will reduce the cooldown count of infantry units at the start of the first turn. This will work on all allies whose HP is lower than Xander's, and it stacks with other similar skills, meaning it can be paired with Heavy Blade or Breaker weapons.

Summer Xander Weaknesses

Low Res

Summer Xander's Res only sits at 16 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Summer Xander's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out.
