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

Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Grand Hero Battle, Clarisse will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Clarisse are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Clarisse to get a ton of follow-up attacks on her foes. It also protects her from hostile follow-up attacks. Her Res is of less importance and thus safe to be taken as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Clarisse to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. At +10 merges, she can reach 41 Spd which is a range where she can score consistent follow-up attacks if she receives ample support from allies.

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build requires Life and Death 3 and Brave Bow+. While she already can attack twice with Brave Brow, her Spd stat of 34 means that with a bonus or two from allies, she can gain a folllow-up attack. A follow-up attack with Brave Bow means that she will be able to strike 4 times in battle, which is more than many foes can endure. Quickened Pulse is a good S slot option if it is available for you.

How to Use, Explanation

With Firesweep Bow+ and other skills that deal fixed damage, the goal of this build is to chip away at the foes’ HP. Since the foes will be unable to counterattack, Clarisse will be free to deal damage to foes on the map. In order to take down foes with Vantage, we recommend the skill Hardy Bearing in the S slot.

Clarisse Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Clarisse's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Effective against flying foes. After combat, if unit attacked, deals 7 damage to target and foes within 2 spaces of target, and inflicts Atk/Spd-7 on them through their next actions.
At start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 50%, grants Atk/Spd+4 during combat, and if unit is also within 2 spaces of support partner, foe cannot counterattack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Sniper's Bow

Sniper's Bow grants Clarisse +4 Atk/Spd in combat if her HP ≥ 50%. Additionally, if her support partner is within 2 spaces of her, foes can not counterattack. This enables her to spread the AoE damage of Sniper's Bow safely. This damage can easily stack to high amounts.

For ideal support partners, we recommend units like Reyson who can both refresh and heal Clarisse. This allows for more stacks of Sniper's Bow, and the heal makes sure that her HP is always ≥ 50%.

Clarisse 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.

Clarrise Strengths

AoE Debuff that Decreases Enemy Damage

Sniper's Bow inflicts -7 Atk/Spd on the target and all foes 2 spaces of it. This decreases the amount of damage they can dish out throughout their next actions and makes it easier for your allies to take them out safely.

Great at Dealing AoE Chip Damage

Sniper's Bow deals 7 damage to target and all foes within 2 spaces of said target after combat. Additionally, Poison Strike 3 deals 10 damage to the primary target. Since Clarisse can be immune to counterattacks, she can chip at the enemy team's HP safely. This makes it easy for her allies to take out the weakened enemies.

Clarisse Weaknesses

Outclassed by other Bow Units

Clarisse's offensive performance is outclassed by the likes of L!Alm and Gordin, as both are full-on offensive bow units. On the other hand, balanced bow units similar to Clarrise like Norne also outclass her. If you want to utilize Clarisse, make sure to pair her with a unit that has access to debuffs to improve her firepower.

In maps that need high amounts of offensive firepower, it is wise to strategically treat Clarisse as debuff and AoE chip damage support instead of the main go-to offensive unit.

It is important to note that the fixed damage bow from Sniper's Bow and Poison Strike are not lethal damage.

Hmpf...Heroes...from other worlds... I bet there’s at least one of them who’s not totally loyal to you.
You give the word, and then I’ll get rid of whomever it is. Permanently.
Reese is not my sister. Maybe she and I made some pledge when we were children.
But that was then, and this is now. Who’d hold to silly promises like that anyway?
Hey, you. You’re going to way too much trouble for everyone’s sakes. Take a break, will you?
If you don’t, I might just have to give you a permanent nap with my bow here.
Sure I follow your orders, but don’t get the wrong idea. I’m...I’m just bound by a contract, all right?
Hey, if I fail miserably in battle and you don’t want to keep me around anymore...
Oh, forget it. Do what you need to.

I’ve been thinking about something. Lots of time has gone by since I got here.
I’ve maybe helped you more than I like...but also sneered at you more than I should.
Still, the longer I’m here in the castle, I wonder if this is what having a family feels like.
Hey! Get that smile off your face. I’m only wondering! Not saying it’s what I want!
Seriously, never bring this up again. Or else I’ll have to—you know, put an arrow in your hide.
All right then, have we reached an understanding? Good.
