Tempest Trials: Sandy Struggles Key Points

Make use of Overseas Memories Units!

Summer Lorenz Builds and Best IVs

The free unit obtained through a high score in this event is Summer Lorenz. Since Summer Lorenz cannot be obtained through regular summon, be sure to obtain him here before the event expires. A Five Star version of Summer Lorenz will be given as a reward once you reach a cumulative score of 15,000.

Obtainable Seals from this Event

Score 10,000 Score 20,000
Mirror Strike 1 Spd/Res Solo 1

Of the Sacred Seals obtainable in this event, we especially recommend getting Spd/Res Solo 1. It is a very useful defensive-utility seal that you can obtain quite easily, so be sure to pick up this seal along with the free units before the event ends!

This event's boss is Summer Byleth (F)

The boss for Tempest Trials+: Sandy Struggles is Summer Byleth (F). Summer Byleth (F) is a powerful speedy attacker that can easily take out your units with follow-up attacks! Make sure to get to her before she gets the chance to attack your units.

Donnel - Village Hero Image Donnel Reinhardt - ThunderReinhardt Leif - Unifier of Thracia Image Legendary Leif Gordin - Altean Archer Image Gordin

Summer Byleth (F) is the priority target in this map as she can easily take out your units if she gets to them first. Below are some units like Reinhardt or Legendary Leif who has characteristics that make them strong against Byleth, Reinhardt being a blue unit and Leif possessing a bow which is strong against flying units. They also attack twice because of their weapons. This ignores Summer Byleth's only good defensive stat, her high Spd.

Tibarn is also a common unit to show up on this final map, and he too can be easily taken out by strong blue units. Just be wary of his Hawk King Claw that allows him to move 3 spaces under certain conditions. This might catch you in surprise at it does not show up in the danger zone.

Heroes with Effective Skills

Bonus Heroes receive a stat boost

You Win

During Tempest Trials, Bonus Units will receive HP+10 and +4 to all other stats. These bonus points will give a non-merged ally the same stat bonuses of a +10 ally, which is also like having a Fortify skill constantly active on all stats. Bonus Units are very powerful with these stat boosts, so use them as much as possible.
