IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk/-Def

The best IVs for Ewan are +Atk and -Def. A +Atk IV helps him deal more damage to enemies. His mediocre Def stat is of less importance to him and thus it is safe to take Def as a bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Ewan to +10. With +10 Merges, his Atk stat will reach 54 and pushing it beyond this level is pointless. It would be better if Ewan took a +Spd IV instead to help him trigger more follow-up attacks and make him less susceptible to follow-up attacks. With a +Spd IV at +10 merges, he will reach a decent level of 40 Spd.

Ewan 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.

Ewan Strengths

Buff When Attacked by Ranged Foes

Rauðrserpent+ has the same effects as Distant Def 3. This buffs Ewan's defenses whenever he is attacked by ranged units. Since he also has access to Swift Stance 2, he can make for a decent magic tank or at least magic bait that can be used in Aether Raids to lure out defensive units.

Can cast a penalty on foes standing adjacent to eachother

Ewan's B Skill Sabotage Spd will cast a Spd penalty on foes that are adjacent to another foe and have a Res stat that is 3 or lower than Ewan's. This skill works well when foes are grouped together in a map, and will allow Ewan and her allies to score more follow-up attacks.

Ewan Weaknesses

Low Def

Ewan's Def only sits at 23 at Lv. 40. Even though she can reduce damage from bows and daggers using his skills, you should still pay attention to melee physical attackers that can easily take down Ewan.

    • >>[24] well, in this specific banner, there are no pity breakers or non-focus 5 stars so the odds of you getting 2 5* focuses in one session is pretty high compared to other banners
