IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk/-Res

Barst's best IVs are +Atk and -Res. Barst will gain a guaranteed follow-up through his weapon Brave Axe when he initiates combat, so a higher Atk stat means that a doubled attack will deal significantly more damage. If you are planning on swapping out his weapon skill, then a +Spd IV may actually be more suitable.

How to Use, Explanation

This build is based around changing Barst’s weapon and equipping him with Fury. Equipping him with Killer Axe+ will raise his Atk stat, and then giving him Fury will give him a nice stat balance. Bonfire will be easily to trigger, and can deal plenty of damage.

How to Use, Explanation

This build is based on Wo Gùn+ and Steady Breath. Through Steady Breath and Quick Riposte 3, his special cooldown will be greatly reduced, allowing him to steadily deal heavy damage to his foes. Wo Gùn+ deals 10 damage when a special triggers, meaning he will be able to successfully deal damage even to units with very high defense.

Laslow Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Laslow's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 during combat, but if unit attacked, deals 4 damage to unit after combat.
At start of turn, if unit's HP <= 75% and unit's attack triggers Special, grants cooldown countdown-1, and deals +10 damage when Special triggers.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Devil Axe

Barst's exclusive wepaon can be refined with the special effect upgrade to gain the effect of Wrath 3. This effect is easy to trigger since the weapon's skill will deal damage to Barst, and having it as a built in effect allows for additional creativity with his passive skills.

Bast 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 versatile assist skills, and a weapon that lets him attack consecutively when initiating combat.

Barst's Strengths

Stat raising exclusive weapon

Barst has the exclusive weapon Devil's Axe, which will add +4 to all stats in combat. Although this weapon deals 4 damage to Barst after combat, the stat boost is worth it, and if you refine his weapon with the special effect upgrade, this demerit can actually make the bonus effect easier to trigger.

A beast of position adjustment

Barst's strength would have to lie in his two useful movement skills. He can adjust the positions of both allies and foes, making him rather versatile.

Can support his allies with Spur Atk 3

Spur Atk 3 allows Barst to buff his allies' Atk stat. Reposition your foes and allies, and support your allies to take on the enemy!

Barst's Weaknesses

Watch out for magic attackers

Another weakness lies in his low Res stat. Make sure he stays out of reach from enemy mages and dragons.
