IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Leon are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Leon to prevent follow-up attacks and help him make follow-up attacks on his own. This boosts both his offensive and survivability capabilities. His poor Res is ideal for a dump stat.

Leon Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Leon's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). Effective against flying foes.
At start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 50%, grants Atk/Spd/Def+4 during combat, and if unit initiates combat, foe cannot make a follow-up attack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Bow of Beauty

The special effect refine from Bow of Beauty will add to Leon's already high Atk and Def stat, and it is fairly easy to trigger, only requiring HP ≥ 50%. With a healer unit, you can easily enjoy the +4 Atk/Spd/Def which allows Leon to finish off most units that already have some of their HP taken off.

Leon Roles, Strengths, and Weaknesses

Leon Roles

Leon - True of Heart Roles
Close Physical AttackClose-Physical Ranged Physical Attack ImageRanged-Physical Close Magic AttackClose-Magic Ranged MagicRanged-Magic
Physical Wall ImagePhysical Wall Magic WallMagic Wall Effective ImageEffective Weapon Movement Assist ImageMovement Assist
No All Range Counterattack ImageAll-Range Counterattack RecoveryRecovery No Refresher ImageRefresher Assist Not Legendary ImageLegendary/Mythic

Leon 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.

Leon Strengths

Slaying Bow and Bow of Beauty Speeds-up Special

Leon's most powerful weapons, Slaying Bow+ and Bow of Beauty both accelerate special trigger (cooldown count -1). This makes it easier for him to utilize his special skill.

High Atk and High Def

Leon has some of the best Atk and Def stats of all bow-wielding units. Therefore, he is worth investing better skills in and he can fit in many teams.

Leon Weaknesses

Low Res

Leon has very low Res. Be mindful of his positioning in relation to magic-based heroes that can pose a threat to him. Only engage combat with magic users if they cannot counterattack.

Inheriting Ignis, Speed +3 and Guard 3

Leon can be used to inherit the skills Ignis and Speed +3. In addition, Guard 3 is also a good pick to fodder off as it is very helpful in Grand Hero Battles. If you do not plan to use Leon in your teams, it is a great idea to keep him as a Combat Manual instead.
