+Atk and -Spd

Duma's best IVs are +Atk and -Spd. With a +Atk IV, Duma's Atk will increase by 4, making Bold Fighter very effective and allowing him to take down many foes in just one attack. A +Def IV is useful as well as it will make him capable of withstanding even more of the foe’s attacks.

Duma Best Builds

God of Death: DumaHOT

Assist Skill IconSwap
Passive Skill CUpheaval

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

With Death Blow in his A slot, Duma can easily take down even foes with high Res stats. If used in an armor-team, Armor March can also be swapped out for the C slot to increase his mobility, making him even easier to use. Quick Riposte is an excellent seal for Duma, allowing him to gain a guaranteed follow-up attack even when the foe initiates combat.

Duma is a non-ranged (Range = 1) magic attacker. Therefore, he will take and receive damage regardless of the weapon triangle. Additionally, if he is played during a week of anima season alongside a unit who possesses an anima blessing, he will raise the HP and attack of said unit.

Duma is a Mythic Hero who will receive a Anima Blessing when summoned. During Anima Season, Duma's allies who also have a Anima Blessing will receive a HP+5 and Atk+3 to their stats, increasing the party's viability.

Duma's Strengths

Colorless and Unaffected by Other Color Types

Since Duma is colorless, he is neither strong nor weak against any other color types. Therefore, the fact that he can safely battle any opponent regardless of their color type is one of his strengths. However, you must be careful as he is weak to Raven Tomes.

Fixed Damage to All Enemies and Prevents Follow-Up Attacks

His C Skill 'Upheaval' deals a fixed amount of 7 damage points to all enemies at the start of the first turn. While this skill is very useful against heroes who are strong at 100% HP such as Fallen Celica and other Celica heroes, it also has the advantage of making skills that trigger when a heroes HP is higher than the opponents (such as Aversa's C Skill) easier to negate.

Additionally, by using his exclusive weapon Fell Breath, it is possible to prevent an enemy from using a follow-up attack. Fixed damage distribution from his Upheaval skill and its synergy with Fell Breath make Duma a tough hero to take down.

Destroy Offensive Structures when Defending in Aether Raid!

During Anima season, placing Duma in a defense map allows you to destroy offensive structures located in the same column. In addition, since the fixed damage from Upheaval stacks, lining up duplicate Dumas will amplify the amount of damage dealt to opponents.

Guaranteed Follow-Up Attack with Bold Fighter!

Duma's passive skill Bold Fighter allows him to make a guaranteed follow-up attack. In addition, he can speed up his cooldown when he makes an attack. When struck by an opponent capable of making a counterattack, his Draconic Aura makes it difficult to bring him down in just one battle. Pairing him with allies possessing the skill Armor March further increases his combat ability.

Gains a Buff When Solo

Def/Res Solo is a skill that grants +6 to Def/Res when Duma is not adjacent to another ally. Additionally, since Fell Breath's bonus stacks on top of this resulting in +12 resistance, it is not a stretch to say that Duma is a character with one tough defence. Since Duma can only move one space per turn, he separates from allies easily, and this condition is very easy to meet.

Duma's Weaknesses

Weak to Armor Effective Weapons

Since he is an armored unit, Duma takes a lot of damage from armor effective weapons. Take note of your opponent's weapons and proceed with caution.

How is Damage Calculated?

Weak to Anti-Dragon Attacks

Duma is a manakete, so in addition to armor effective weapons, he takes heavy damage from characters who wield Falchion or other dragon effective weapons. Be sure not to approach units who wield weapons that are effective against him.

Heroes who can boost his mobility

As an armored unit, Duma can only move one space at a time. By pairing him with units who have access to Armor March or Guidance, the range in which he can move increases, making Bold Fighter easier to utilize.

Heroes with Armor or Dragon buff skills

As a manakete, having either armored unit or dragon unit buff skills active will increase his power. Skills like Fortify Dragons or Goad Dragons will increase his ability to tank enemy attacks.

Heroes with effective weapons

As an Armored Dragon unit, Duma will take additional damage from any weapon that is effective on either of these. Since a counterattack could be fatal, stay away from foes with these types of weapons, unless Duma is able to initiate combat.

    Mankind must become strong. My sister does not seem to understand this. It is regrettable.
    In Rigel, the land I rule, the people must become strong and self-reliant thanks to the harsh climate.
    That is how mankind should be.
    You find yourself in another world, yet you temper your spirit on the battlefield here.
    You are a true warrior in my eyes.
    You are said to be only a summoner, but I find your demeanor familiar. Would you cross swords with me?
    The people of Rigel... If only they could be diligent in my absence, all would be well. It vexes me.

    I have come to know you in the time since you called me here, Summoner.
    You are a strong one. But your strength is not the strength I hope to see in mankind.
    At times, you do approach my ideal... But your kindness is more like my sister Mila’s.
    Seeing you makes me ponder what things would have been like if we had ruled the land together.
    No, this is foolishness. A god like me, learning from you, who is as dirt? Pay this no heed.
