HP (18) HP Superboon ★★☆☆☆
Atk (20) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (12) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (7) Res Bane ★★☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Bow Hinoka are +Atk and -Res. A higher Atk stat allows Hinoka to take out other flying and armored units more effectively. You can also go for a +Spd stat if you prefer scoring or avoiding follow-up attacks. Since she can afford to take some ponts off Res, it is a fitting bane for her as to not harm her Def even more.

Bow Hinoka is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Bow Hinoka Strengths

Strong Against Armored Units!

Bow Hinoka vs Surtr.jpg

Warrior Princess is effective not only against flying units, but also armored units as well! This allows Hinoka to be a great match-up against powerful armored units such as Surtr and Idunn!

It also has a built-in effect similar to Drive Atk! It Grants +3 Atk to allies within 2 spaces during combat.

Atk/Spd Bond Increases Offensive Power

Atk/Spd Bond 3 increases Bow Hinoka's Atk and Spd by +5 if she is adjacent to an ally. Since it is an in-combat buff, it stacks with other combat buffs. This makes Bow Hinoka high-powered, but not susceptible to panics and chills. This, of course, stacks with the Drive Atk effects of Warrior Princess.

Flier Formation 3 grants extra mobility

Flier Formation 3 allows Bow Hinoka to move to spaces that are adjacent to units 2 squares away. This allows Bow Hinoka to potentially jump from unit to unit and help them through attacking nearby foes or by triggering skills that require an adjacent ally. This skill provides lots of strategic value if you are using at least two other flying units aside from Bow Hinoka.

Flier Guidance 3 synergizes well with Flier Formation 3

Combined with Flier Formation 3, Flier Guidance 3 allows Bow Hinoka and all of her allies to bounce around each other while enjoying the benefits of flying movement! This makes Bow Hinoka's presence in an all-flying party very important as she brings ton of mobility into the team.

Bow Hinoka Weaknesses

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Bow Hinoka takes 1.5x damage from bows and weapons effective on flying units. Be sure to keep them out of the range of archers and leave them to other units.
Heroes with Effective Skills

Low Def

Bow Hinoka's Def only sits at 17 at Lv. 40. This further magnifies her weaknesses to co-bow units. Be wary of counterattacks from physical units! Remember that taking attacks from magical units is a different story as her Res is at a fair 29!

Quotes: Castle

I’ve spent my life training to be a warrior so I never had time to learn domestic skills like cooking or sewing.
But learning a less warlike skill may help broaden my horizons... What do you think?
Kinshi are legendary giant birds, native to my homeland.
I’d love to someday take you to Hoshido so we can watch them soar across the skies together.
I know you’ve got plenty of experience with all sorts of Heroes, but let me give you some advice…
When it comes to choosing a retainer, do your research! Otherwise, you may be in for a rude awakening…

When it comes to taking down a flying target, nothing beats a bow. But using one requires the proper technique.

You sure put in a hard day’s work in that last battle. I’ve gotta say, it’s impressive watching you out there!
Heh, my fighting was worthy of a warrior princess? Aw, shucks. Thanks for saying! Although…
I wasn’t always a warrior like I am now. When I was younger, I was more like a typical little girl.
But then, something...happened... And afterward, I decided I would learn how to fight.
Ever since, I’ve been training to hone my battle skills. And I’m glad I did, too!
Otherwise, I’d have never been summoned here, and I’d never have the chance to fight by your side.
Heh, I should be sending a thank-you note to my past self.
Umm... Well, that was all a little embarrassing to say out loud, so I’m gonna go for a stroll in the sky.
And you’re coming with!

    • >>[155] sounds good imo. enemy phase monster. hey, if it works, it works!

    • >>[18] I'd say take the -Spd/Res because he does not really need Spd and the extra Res helps.
      for B skills, you can pick whatever you need for Hector. Both are good but I think Special Fighter is better since it works for both phases. Bold fighter only works in the player phase (when attacking)
      with the new weapon refine, he becomes a solid multi-phase unit so hmm I thinnk get special fighter
