Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (20) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (21) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) No Spd IV ★☆☆☆☆
Def (9) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (8) No Res IV ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk/-Spd

The best IVs for Halloween Jakob are +Atk and -Spd. This allows him to directly increase the damage he deals. His Spd is not of importance as it is unreliable and Wary Fighter 3 already takes care of follow-up attack protection. The mentioned skill also disables his ability to nail follow-up attacks so this makes Spd very very unimportant.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Halloween Jakob to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. If you plan to replace his B skill with something like Vengeful Fighter 3, you can go for a +Def or +Res IV depending on your needs instead.

Halloween Jakob is a ranged magic 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 Res stat.

Halloween Jakob Strengths

A rare armored bow unit!

Halloween Jakob is both a bow user and an armored unit and that is a very rare combination. This allow him to fill-in specific niches as he hits harder and is more durable compared to other bow users. The only downside is his limited mobility which can be fixed through proper skills, Seals and synergy with allied units.

His colorless nature can also be used to an advantage as it means he will not take extra attribute damage if the foe does not have a Raven weapon like the very powerful Tome of Order.

Because of his ability to fill-in a very specific niche as a bow armored unit, he can make for a good unit in an all-armored team especially with some investment.

Naturally high stats and Wary Fighter make him great on the defensive front too!

On top of his naturally high defenses, Halloween Jakob has access to Wary Fighter 3. Wary Fighter 3 prevents Jakob and his foe from executing follow-up attacks if his HP ≥ 50%. Halloween Jakob benefits greatly from this, as he does not rely on follow-up attacks to deal damage anyway. Even if you inherit Brave Bow+ onto him, he can still get the extra attack as the strike this weapon provides does not count as a follow-up attack.

This is mostly a defensive skill. If you prefer a more offensive build, you can opt for Bold Fighter 3 or Vengeful Fighter 3. Check out the builds section to learn more about these skills and how you can integrate them onto Jakob's kit.

Halloween Jakob Weaknesses

Armored movement!

Halloween Jakob enjoys the high stats of an armored unit, but this means that he suffers from armored movement as well. Without the use of proper Sacred Seals like Armored Boots and skills like Armored March 3, he will be crippled by very limited movement. It will be most likely that the enemy will get to him first before he is able to initiate. If that is the case, he will be unable to trigger Bracing Blow 2.

Another option is to get Guidance 3 if you plan to run him in mixed teams. With this skill and his ranged, you will have a moderately easy time initiating on enemies.

Weak to Armor Effective Weapons

Halloween Jakob takes 1.5x damage from armor-effective weapons like Armorslayer+ or Hammer+, and one blow from these types of weapons is sure to take him down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Value of Skills ★★☆☆☆

Not Recommended for Skill Inheritance

Halloween Jakob does not possess any skills that are worth inheriting onto another unit. We recommend training and investing in him instead. If you get multiple copies of him, you can aim for a +10 merge Halloween Jakob to make a very reliable armored bow unit.

Quotes: Castle

I suppose this outfit must make me look quite intimidating. The other Heroes don’t often approach me.
I’m not complaining, mind you. It means I needn’t bother with social niceties, after all.
Being in costume reminds me of a Nohrian festival I once attended. So many people, talking and talking…
Looking back on it now, though... I must admit it wasn’t all that bad.
What’s this? You’d like some candy? I suppose there are some things even a summoner can’t summon.
Very well. I shall prepare some candy for you in the near future.
Would you like to carve a pumpkin lantern with me? It might be fun—
I mean, it might be more efficient if we cooperated to complete the task.
It is said that costumes like this one are worn to frighten thieves so they won’t steal newly harvested crops.
That...is not my job, however. My duty is to protect my liege, Corrin.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
Is that you, my liege? Oh, no... Of course not. It’s you. How could I make such a mistake?
Perhaps it is this costume. I feel as though I’ve been a bit off since I arrived at this castle.
Normally, I would serve only my liege, Corrin. For some reason, however, I feel compelled to follow you…
I fight for you, and even care about your safety. I simply cannot understand it.
Aha! You’ve played a vicious trick on me, because I haven’t given you any candy. No? You haven’t? Then…
I must have formed some affection for you myself, without even realizing…
Well, when next we meet, the least I could do would be to offer you a cup of tea, I suppose.
