Sothe Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (24) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (9) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (5) No Def IV ★★☆☆☆
Res (4) No Res IV ★☆☆☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Sothe are +Atk and -Res. He has decent Spd so he does not need much of that. A +Atk IV gives him the best chance of taking out units in one turn. It also makes way for inheriting the very useful Poison Dagger+ onto him. With that dagger, he can take out a wide range of infantry units with one hit. His Res is of less importance and thus safe taken as a bane.

How to Use, Explanation

This build aims to give Sothe the highest score possible in the Arena with his refined weapon. A budget option if you have no Blue Flame but would like to score the same is Aether, while the rest of his kit has premium skills in order for him to max out his score.

Aether Raids / General Use SotheHOT

Weapon Skill IconPeshkatz
Special Skill IconGlimmer

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a general build using Sothe's refined weapon that can also be used in Aether Raids. Sothe's C skill will differ depending on the team composition you are running. You can run Infantry Pulse 3, Joint Drive Attack, or Fatal Smoke 3 depending on his allies' HP values.
If you don't have Life and Death 4, Life and Death 3 should run fine, or replace it with either Fury 3 or 4. Desperation 3 works if you are running the Fury build.

Sothe Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Sothe's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
After combat, if unit attacked, inflicts Atk/Spd/Def/Res-5 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target through their next actions, and grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+5 to unit and allies within 2 spaces for 1 turn.
A start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 25%, grants Atk/Spd+4 during combat, and also, after combat, if unit attacked, inflicts Special cooldown count+1 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target and grants Special cooldown count-1 to unit and allies within 2 spaces.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Peshkatz

Peshkatz's refine gives Sothe Atk/Spd/+4 if his HP is ≥ 25%. He will also inflict Special cooldown count+1 on his target and nearby enemy units and grant himself and allies within 2 spaces Special cooldown count-1.

We recommend getting this refine as Sothe will not only have increased firepower, but will also help himself and his allies trigger their Specials sooner while delaying the enemy team's.

Sothe is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). 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.

Sothe Strengths

Buff allies while debuffing enemies simultaneously

Peshkatz possesses the effect of debuffing all the stats of an enemy unit. It inflicts -5 Atk/Spd/Def/Res to Sothe's target and all foes within 2 spaces of said target similar to how most daggers work. However, it also possesses an effect that buffs all allies +5 Atk/SpdDef/Res to Sothe and all allies within 2 spaces.

With Peshkatz's refine, Sothe will grant himself an additional Atk/Spd+4 if his HP is ≥ 25%. This will greatly increase Sothe's one-shot potential.

Can max out his offensive stats

Sothe has the skill Life and Death 3, which grants Atk/Spd +5 and inflicts Def/Res -5. While this will severely affect his defensive capability, this skill can be crucial for high damaging attacks in the player phase.

Peshkatz's refine slows down Specials and accelerates allies' Specials

In addition to buffing his party and debuffing his allies, Peshkatz's refine will also inflict cooldown count +1 on to his target and their allies within 2 spaces. He'll also grant cooldown count -1 to himself and his allies within 2 spaces.

This is very useful, as he can slow down the triggers of enemy Specials, while accelerating his own and his allies'.

Sothe Weaknesses

Cannot take much of a beating

Sothe has low defensive stats, and that is made even worse when Life and Death 3 is equipped. One hit from an enemy is usually all it will take to eliminate him. Play to his strengths, and move him around so that he can remain out of the foes' reach and avoid enemy attacks.

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
When I heard I was in another world, well... I prepared for the worst. Truth is, it doesn’t seem so different.
About the only thing I miss is the cooking. Ours is better.
No matter where I end up, no matter who I’m with...it won’t change who I am or what I have to do.
It doesn’t change what matters to me, either.
One look at you and I can see that you’re exhausted.
If our tactician is about to keel over... What does that do for morale?
Go and splash your face with some cold water. That should do the trick.
I don’t care who you are. If you do anything to hurt Micaiah, you’ll answer to me. Got it?
I was just sharpening my knives. You’ve got to be ready for anything, and you can only rely on yourself.

Lv 40 Dialogue

Micaiah and I don’t really look alike? Well, of course we don’t. We’re not related by blood.
When I was a kid, Micaiah took me by the hand. All she wanted was for me to not have to cry anymore…
She held me tight. That’s when we became a family.
Our bond is thicker than blood. No matter what, we support one another. We trust each other completely.
When I see you fight alongside Alfonse and the others, never asking for any kind of reward…
Well, if I squint, it’s almost like looking at Micaiah.
I can’t say I really trust you just yet. Not like I trust her.
That said, I’ve come to believe in you. Why? Because you fight for the people. I can trust in that.
