Spd (13) Spd Boon ★★★★★

Res (6) Res Boon ★★☆☆☆

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

IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Spd/-Res

V!Alm's best IVs are +Spd and -Res. With a Spd asset, Alm gains Spd+4, allowing him to gain a follow-up attack against most foes. On the other hand, since he has a superboon in HP, we recommend -Res for his flaw.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

If you are planning on merging Alm to +10, we recommend +Atk. At +10 merges, his Spd will reach 47, which is already pretty insane, so instead focus on upping the damage he can deal with each attack. If you really want to be sure he can get a follow-up attack, +Spd is still a solid option.

V!Alm is a close ranged physical attacker (range = 1). 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 stat.

Duo Skill Usable in Arenas

Valentine's Alm's Duo Skill raises his arena score, in addition to granting him a powerful battle effect. Duo Heroes have a Duo Skill which can be used once per map. Additionally, his Duel effect treats his stats as 185 in Arena modes, giving him a huge advantage over many other heroes.

The effect of Valentine's Alm's Duo Skill is shown below

Valentine's Alm Strengths

Weapon skill is very powerful with an active bonus

When V!Alm's HP is above 70% or when a skill like Rally or Hone is active on him, his exclusive weapon Scepter of Love will cause Alm's Atk to increase the higher the foe's Def is, and the foe's Atk will also decrease more the higher that foe's Res is. This weapon skill is powerful in its duel ability to raise the damage Alm inflicts while lowering the amount he takes.

Excellent default skill set

V!Alm's default skills are all very good. Rouse Spd/Res gives him a bonus at the start of a turn while Bonus Doubler will increase that amount, and during combat, Lull Atk/Spd will inflict an Atk/Spd penalty on the foe and neutralize their bonuses to Atk/Spd. Top this off with the fact that his exclusive special skill Lunar Flash is a quick and powerful special, and you have a very strong unit with a great set of base skills.

Access to a Duo Skill

More information on this skill is coming soon.

Valentine's Alm Weaknesses

Weak to magic attackers

V!Alm has a low Res stat, so he will take massive damage from both tome users and manaketes. Keep out of reach from these foes and avoid ketting hit by this type of unit.

Value of Skills ★★★★★

Inheriting Bonus Doubler, Lull Atk/Spd, or Rouse Spd/Res

V!Alm can be used to inherit the skills Bonus Doubler, Lull Atk/Spd, and Rouse Spd/Res. These are all very good skills, but since he is a rare special hero, think carefully about your decision before foddering him off.
