Legendary Alm Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (25) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (14) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (3) Res Boon ★★☆☆☆

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

+Spd/-Res

Legendary Alm's best IVs are +Spd and -Res. Since his special increases with a higher Spd, a raised Spd IV means he will deal more total damage. With his low base Res stat, it is best used as a dump stat, making it ideal for a flaw.

How to Use, Explanation

Legendary Alm’s base skill set is very synergistic, so he is still viable even without much investing too much into inherit skill. Equipping him with the assist skill Draw Back and the sacred seal Flashing Blade will further enhance his ability.

Desperation Type Legendary Alm

Weapon Skill IconLuna Arc

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build makes use of Ardent Sacrifice and the B Skill Desperation. With his poor defensive stats, Alm is in danger of getting taken down by enemy counterattacks, so you should prevent them as much as possible. Ardent Sacrifice will allow Alm to reach the HP threshold for Desperation, making them synergistic and easy to make use of in battle.

How to Use, Explanation

Spd is naturally high, so Darting Blow 4 is highly synergistic. If you feel that his Spd does not quite cut it, equipping the seal Phantom Spd should allow him to safely prevent most enemy counterattacks.

Alm is a ranged physical attack phase unit. 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.

As a Legendary Hero, you will gain an Earth Blessing when summoning L!Alm. Additionally, being an Earth type Legendary Hero means that during Earth Seasons, other allies with an Earth Blessing will receive HP+3 when they appear in battle with L!Alm, and Alm's total stats will be treated as 175. This will lead to a higher Arena Score.

Legendary Alm's Strengths

Can Deal 25% of a Foe's Def as Damage

Legendary Alm's exclusive weapon Luna Arc deals an additional 25% of the foe's Def when he initiates combat. The Def stat used for calculation will include any alterations present during combat, so Surtr's Def would be calculated as 51 when attacking him. Alm's strength lies in being stronger against foes who have higher Def stats.

Example of Damage Calculation

Name Def Staf (Base Value) Calculated Damage
Surtr 51 Damage +12
Halloween
Myrrh
45 Damage +11
Legendary Hector 41 Damage +10
Legendary Tiki 37 Damage +9

Special skill adds 20% of Spd as damage

Lunar Flash, Alm's special skill, treats the foe's Def or Res as if reduced by 20%, and tacks on 20% of his Spd as damage. Combined with his Passive A Skill Darting Blow will further increase this total. Since it only has a cooldown count of 2, equipping Alm with Flashing Blade will make his special activate on follow-up attacks.

Nullifies Enemy Follow-Up Attacks

Main Vengeful Fighter Users
Idunn - Dark PriestessIdunn Myrrh - Spooky MonsterHalloween Myrrh Hector - Marquess of OstiaLegendary Hector Caineghis - GalliaCaineghis

Null Follow-Up allows him to disable the foe's guaranteed follow-up attacks and stop the foe from preventing his own follow-up attacks. Equipping Alm with Flashing Blade will trigger a powerful special when he makes a follow-up attack, meaning this skill is highly synergetic, and you can anticipate higher damage output from it as well. Since he can prevent enemy guaranteed follow-ups, he can in effect render the skill Vengeful Fighter as useless.

L!Alm's Weaknesses

Weak to Foe's Attacks

Legendary Alm has low base stats in both Def and Res, so he is a bit fragile against opponents' attacks. Heroes with Atk that is slightly above average can deal near lethal damage to Alm or even OKO him. Therefore, use caution so that he does not step into an area where enemies can take him down.

Teammates for Legendary Alm

Legendary Alm is a bow-wielding infantry unit, so he cannot receive any movement type-exclusive buffs. Therefore, you should edit your team with allies who can raise an ally's stats while providing additional movement like Legendary Azura or Flying Olivia, or Drive-type skills that buff allies from 2 spaces away such as Kaden.

Heroes Who Are Strong to Manaketes

Since Alm is a bow-wielder, so when he gets attacked by a dragon damage will be calculated with the lower of his Def or Res. With his low defensive stats, an attack from a dragon can be lethal, so you should keep some heroes such as Legendary Marth or Julia in the same team who can easily defeat Manaketes.

High Mobility Attack Phase Mages

Legendary Alm shines in the attack phase, so it is not ideal for him to take attacks. When he does take an attack, he is likely to fall before being able to dish out a counterattack, so be wary of the danger zones of high powered mages with great mobility such as Reinhardt or Nino.

Inheriting Darting Blow 4 or Null Follow-Up

Alm can be used to inherit Darting Blow 4 or Null Follow-Up 3. If you are trying to inherit Darting Blow 4, we recommend first inheriting up to Darting Blow 3 from another hero so that you can inherit Null Follow-Up 1-3 at the same time.

Being summoned here is a good chance for me to observe and learn. That's important for a king.
Peace has only just dawned in our kingdom, but I'll remain here and help it break in Askr as well.
There is no true peace if my world is the only one that knows it.
I have a lot of friends to support me. I hope that someday you'll think of me as such a friend, too.
Would you mind showing me the way to the library?
Learning about the history and culture of this world will surely offer valuable insight I can take back to my own.
Huh?! Oh, you startled me... I was just sneaking a snack. Oranges are pretty popular in my homeland.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
I may be Saint-King Alm, but I have every intention of remaining true to myself. But, well...
That's easier said than done thanks to the daily tasks required of a king.
Unless there's a major battle, I have to leave the fighting to Clive, Lukas, and the knights.
I hadn't even set foot on a battlefield for some time before arriving here.
I'm glad I can use my experience and strength to help the people of Askr. Every day has been wholly fulfilling.
There aren't many people I can admit that to, so I'm thankful to have met you here in this world.
Thank you for letting me relive my life as a fighter, if even for a moment. It's been like a dream.
And even after I wake from it, I won't forget you.
