How to Use, Explanation

This build utilizes Valentine's Hector's refined weapon, making him deal lots of damage on enemy phase. On enemy attack, he will take damage and be within the Wrath-effect range of his weapon, and then can use Special Fighter's effect to trigger his Special. The heal on his refined weapon will keep him healthy so he can take more hits.

Valentine's Hector Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Valentine's Hector Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Berserk Armads

Berserk Armads' refine not only inflicts Atk/Def-5 on an enemy unit when they attack, but also restores Hector's HP when he deals damage with his Special.

This, coupled with the Special trigger acceleration and the additional +10 damage when it does trigger, makes him very powerful.

Keep in mind that the Wrath effect on the weapon can trigger during combat, so if a foe initiates, they will immediately put Valentine's Hector within range and allow him to retaliate with a large amount of damage.

The healing will also keep him healthy so he can keep triggering this effect over and over.

Valentine's Hector 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.

Valentine's Hector Strengths

Berserk Armads accelerates special trigger and powers up special

Berserk Armads accelerates Special trigger cooldown. Addtionally, if Valentine's Hector's HP ≤ 75%, it grants him +10 damage to his special, and special cooldown count -1. Plus 10 damage to a a low coolown special like Glimmer on top of V!Hector's amazing attack stat makes him an offensive powerhouse.

Berserk Armads' effect triggers even when enemies attack Hector, and the refined version will heal him, making it hard for said enemies to take him out. This makes Glimmer almost always ready to activate in the next player phase, which can be game changing if you are in range to take out a high-priority target.

Can Counterattack regardless of range

Hector's Distant Counter allows him to counterattack enemies regardlress of range, as long has they do not have abilities that neutralize this effect. Combined with Armads, Wary Fighter 3, and Glimmer, it makes him a good enemy phase unit.

Valentine's Hector Weaknesses

Low Mobility

Because he is an armored unit, he can only normally move 1 space at a time. It is recommended that you inherit skills such as Armor March and Pivot to increase Hector's mobility.

Weak to Armor Effective Weapons

Valentine's Hector takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Armorslayer+, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to take him down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Units that can heal and buff Hector

Although Hector has generally high stats, it always helps to pair him up with characters that are able to buff and heal him. A good example is Bridal Fjorm who can heal, neutralize penalties and prevent enemies from using skills that grant additional actions such as Legendary Azura's Gray Waves.

If you are intending to form an all-armored team, Winter Eirika is a great option, since she is the only armored staff user in the game. This means that she can heal Hector and enjoy armor-exclusive buffs such as Armor March 3.

Units that can deal with red units

Despite Hector's high defense, his Res is rather mediocre. If you are attacked by a red attribute magic user, you will likely be taken out in one turn. Because of this, it is best if you pair up L!Hector with a hero that can easily take out red foes such as Brave Hector or Ophelia.

Anti-armor units and strong reds

Units such as Hana have weapons like Armorslayer+ that deals 1.5x to armored units such as V!Hector. Red units like Idunn are armor effective on top of being red magic attackers, so they pose a huge threat to Hector. Always be mindful of Hectors positioning in relation to units that pose a threat to him.

So your world has a festival that celebrates love too, huh?
What kind of people would win your world’s tournament?
You’re wasting your time if you came to me for gift-giving advice.
What I have to share on that matter could hardly be classified as "advice.”
I don’t know if it’s because of the festival or what, but... Does everyone seem a bit rowdy to you?
There’s a whole row of stalls in town selling all sorts of treats. And they all look mighty sweet to me.
But the only treat I need is a good tournament!
Eliwood and I used to spar all the time. He’s not as sturdy as I am, but he still gave me a run for my money!

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
Gift giving isn’t really my thing, but I know a good gift can show someone how grateful you are to them.
So I guess that means I should hand some out... I’ll get something for my daughter Lilina, and for Eliwood.
But I never know what to say when I hand over a gift. It’s always just kind of...embarrassing…
Say, {Summoner}... Why don’t you help me come up with something? I’m really hopeless here.
You’ll do it? Great! I owe you big time! Heh, guess that means I’ll have to get something for you, too.
