Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (45) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (53) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (25) Spd Boon ★★☆☆☆
Def (42) Def Boon ★★★★★
Res (20) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Def/-Spd

Altena's best IVs are +Def and -Spd. With a superboon in Def, Altena gains +4 to Def, increasing her ability to tank physical attacks. With her low Spd stat, it is the ideal dump stat.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

If you are going for a +10 merged Altena, +Atk is the best IV. With an Atk boon and +10 merge, her Atk stat reaches 60, making each blow she deals very powerful. However, if you want to maximize her tanking ability, +Def is a great option as well.

Altena is a close ranged physical attacker (range = 1). 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.

Altena Strengths

Casts penalties on non-flying foes in combat

Altena's exclusive weapon skill Earthly Gáe Bolg will inflict Atk/Def-5 on non-flying foes in combat. Additionally, it will nullify enemy bonuses from Fortify and Rally skills, meaning that powerful buffs like Atk Tactic will be rendered useless on non-flying type opponents.

Gains a bonus when the foe initiates combat

Altena's A skill Sturdy Stance 2 will give her Atk/Def +4 when the foe initiates combat. If the foe is not a flier, her weapon skill effect will raise the bonus to a total of +9, allowing her to tank physical attacks and deal significant damage when countering.

Altena Weaknesses

Weapon effect is nullified by fliers

Earthly Gáe Bolg only effects non-flying enemies, meaning that she is not really suited for combating with other flying units. In particular, she will really struggle against green fliers who wield axes or green tomes, so she should avaoid them at all cost.

Weak to magic attackers

Altena has a low Res stat, meaning that she is susceptible to heavy damage from tome wielders and manaketes. Keep an eye on the range of these foes and stay at a safe distance from their attacks.

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Altena takes 1.5x damage from bows. Archers could spell trouble for her, so make sure she avoids the line of fire.

Inheriting Sturdy Stance

You can inherit Sturdy Stance from Altena. However, she is a pretty strong unit, so think hard about whether or not you are okay with foddering her off for this skill.

    • >>[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
