+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for B!Lyn are +Spd and -Res. It will be very easy for B!Lyn to gain a follow-up attack with a boon in this stat, making her easier to use in any party. To keep a balance with her Def stat, -Res is the ideal bane.

What is the best weapon skill for Brave Lyn?

Every build has its pros and cons, although Brave Bow is probably the most powerful

In the current meta, B!Lyn with a Brave Bow is the most easy to use. With a Spd boon, she gets easy follow-ups, and giving her a special like Moonbow that is easily triggered will allow her to easily take down even tanky armored units. The Firesweep Bow build is also useful for preventing counterattacks from all foes, and certainly has its uses.

Brave Lyn Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Brave Lyn's Weapon Refinement

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Effective against flying foes. Grants Spd+3. Neutralizes bow, dagger, magic, or staff foe's bonuses (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.) during combat.
At start of combat, if unit's Spd > foe's Spd, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Weapon Refine!

If you wish to use Mulagir with B!Lyn, we recommend upgrading it with the special effect weapon refine. Doing so will give B!Lyn a +4 bonus to all stats when her Spd exceeds that of the foe. With her already high Spd stat, and Mulagir's additional bonus to her Spd stat, this extra bonus will be easily triggered and very potent.

Brave Lyn is a ranged physical attacker (Range = 2). When the effects of the Weapon Triangle are not taken into account, the damage she deals will be equal to her Atk minus the foes's Def. Additionally, she has skills which give her bonuses, a powerful exclusive B skill, and enemy debuff skills.

Brave Lyn Strengths

In the top class of cavalry and bow units

B!Lyn is one of the best cavalry and one of the best bow units. Being able to move three spaces and attack from two spaces away is in itself very threatening. With a bow like Firesweep Bow or Brave Bow equipped, and powered up via Hone Cavalry, she is a very powerful force on any map.

Prevents follow-up attacks from close-physical attackers

B!Lyn's B Skill Sacae's Blessing will allow her to attack sword/axe/lance users without risk of a counterattack. This allows her to effectively counter units like Legendary Ike and Brave Hector who can normally counter from any range.

Weapon skill nullifies the power of Blade-Tomes

Her exclusive weapon Mulagir will nullify the bonuses on magic attackers from skils like Fortify and Rally. Weapons like Blade Tomes rely on these bonuses, so this skill pretty much renders them useless.

Brave Lyn Weaknesses

Weak to cavalry-effective skills

B!Lyn is a cavalry unit, so she will take a ton of damage from weapons like Ridersbane. Be sure and check what weapons your foes are wielding beforehand.

Weak to Bow Breaker

When a foe has the B Skill Bow Breaker, Lyn will be unable to get a follow-up attack, and unable to make use of her excellent Spd stat. This can be dealt with by instead having B!Lyn inherit a Brave Bow.

Reinhardt Icon Reinhardt Legendary Azura Icon Legendary Azura Fallen Berkut Icon Fallen Berkut Reyson Icon Reyson
Kaden Icon Kaden Gunnthrá Icon Gunnthrá Leanne Icon Leanne Veronica Icon Veronica

Flying units with refresher assists

B!Lyn is a high mobility unit who can extend her reach all over the map. Having a refresher on the same team will allow her to get all over the map and take on multiple foes per turn. When transformed, Reyson and Leanne can move 3 spaces, and are great at keeping up with Lyn to give her extra mobility.

Units with cavalry-exclusive buffs

With her high offensive stats, a powerful buff or two will make Lyn extremely lethal. B!Lyn is great in all-cavalry parties, as her allies can buff her and help her to reach foes from the first turn to take them out.

Brave Lyn Counters

Halloween Myrrh Icon Halloween Myrrh Idunn Icon Idunn Legendary Tiki (Young) Icon Legendary Tiki (Young) Lukas Icon Lukas
Surtr Icon Surtr Legendary Hector Icon Legendary Hector Caineghis Icon Caineghis Fallen Tiki (Young) Icon Fallen Tiki (Young)

Units with very high defensive stats

B!Lyn has excellent offensive stats, but since she does not have color advantage over any other foes, she will struggle to deal heavy damage on units with very high Def. Units like Lukas and Idunn will not take any damage from her normal attacks, so be sure to only strike them when Lyn's special is ready.

Dragons who can counterattack at any range

B!Lyn's defensive stats are pretty low, so if a non-physical attacker with Distant Counter has a change to counterattack, it could cause trouble for B!Lyn. In particular, the Tikis (Legendary/Fallen) and other manaketes often deal damage to the lower of their foe's Def or Res, so a counterattack from them will be fatal.

Inheriting Swift Sparrow

Brave Lyn can be used to inherit Swift Sparrow 2. However, she is a very powerful unit on her own, so we recommend developing and building at least one before foddering off or merging any duplicates.
