IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk/-Def

The best IVs for Kagero are +Atk and -Def. A +Atk IV combined with her refined weapon allows her to one-shot a wide range of foes. Her Def is of less importance to her and it is safe for her to take it as a bane.

Kagero Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Kagero's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
At start of combat, if unit's Atk > foe's Atk, grants Atk/Spd+4 during combat.
Effect:【Dagger 7】
【Dagger 7】
After combat, if unit attacked, inflicts Def/Res-7 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target through their next actions.
If unit initiates combat, reduces damage from foe's first attack by 50%.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Kagero's Dart

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Kagero's Dart. It reduces the damage from the opponent's first attack by 50% if Kagero initiates combat. It already boosts your Spd pre-refinement, making Kagero less susceptible to follow-up attacks. These effects combined make Kagero deceptively durable in the player phase. Because of the added survivability, Kagero can apply more debuffs and take down more enemies with the help of her teammates.

Kagero Roles, Strengths, and Weaknesses

Kagero is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Kagero Strengths

Infantry-Effective Weapon

Poison Dagger+ is effective on infantry units. This makes Kagero a great matchup for many units as there are lots of infantry units in the game and she does not have triangle disadvantage to any units because of her colorless attribute.

Buff to Res if Attacked

Warding Blow 3 grants +6 Res to Kagero if she is attacked by an enemy. She already has decent Res and she possesses a damage reduction ability in her refined weapon. This makes her a great matchup against most magic users, as they are also mostly weak to physical damage.

Guaranteed Follow-up Attack on Dagger Units

If Kagero's HP ≥ 50% and enemy is a dagger user, she makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and her enemy cannot make follow-up attacks. One of the common strengths of dagger users is their speed. Daggerbreaker 3 completely neutralizes this, and as most dagger users are frail, Kagero has a high chance of taking them out.

Kagero Weaknesses

Weak Against Cavalry, Flying and Armored Units

Kagero's weapon is only strong against infantry units, and her firepower may be somewhat lacking when it comes to dealing with other units. Her best bet when facing non-infantry units is to debuff them and have another ally to finish them off.

Weak to Raven Weapons

Kagero may have high Res and damage reduction, but she has low HP, and she is weak against raven-type weapons such as Gronnraven+. If raven users have Triangle Adept 3 equipped, she will surely be taken out. Be mindful of what kind of skills your foes are equipped with and adjust Kagero's positioning accordingly.

The royals of this realm seem to employ no retainers. I find that... interesting.
Both Hoshido and Nohr use them to safeguard royals. Are they that able to defend themselves here?
My liege is Lord Ryoma, a noble leader, strong in spirit and body. It is my honor to serve him.
You are so dutiful. I would be glad to prepare a tea ceremony for you. You’ll find it relaxing.
I prefer to use green tea, though mine tends to be bitter. It goes with sweet treats nicely, however.
You’re also new here. You’ll want to remember everything from these days when all seems unusual.
I find that keeping a diary helps one preserve memories—especially if you draw pictures too.
I draw pictures of the local scenery in my diary. I’m afraid that they look a bit hellish. It’s...just how I draw.

I’ve been doing flower arrangements from whatever I can find in this world. Here’s my latest creation.
What do you think of it? Ah. It looks like something from a hellscape? Well, I appreciate your honesty.
Curious to think how I’d have never been able to work with these flowers had I not come to this world.
In a way, you have played a large part in the creation of this flower arrangement.
I can thank you for many things, and most of all, that every one of us remains safe.
So I vow to keep you safe, no matter what dread events come to pass, {Summoner}.
