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

IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk/-Spd

Faye's best IVs are +Atk and -Spd. Since Bold Fighter grants Faye a guaranteed follow-up, an Atk boon will let her dish out m+6 extra damage. Her Spd is nothing special, and can safely be taken as a flaw.

+Atk for a +10 merge

If you are planning on making a +10 merge Faye, we recommend +Atk. With 10 merges and an asset in Atk, plus the bonus from her weapon skill, her Atk stat will grow to 59, giving her exceptional offensive capability. If you instead want to build her tanking ability, +Def is a good choice as well.

V!Faye is a ranged physical attack phase unit (range=2). 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.

Valentine's Faye Strengths

Excellent offensive capability when initiating combat

V!Faye's weapon Budding Bow+ will give her Atk/Def+4 when she initiates combat, and the foe will be unable to make a follow-up attack. On top of that, she has Death Blow 4 and Bold Fighter 3, which also trigger when initiating combat, and give her a total of Atk+12, Def+4, a guaranteed follow-up attack, and the foe cannot make a follow-up attack. She is very much suited to be a player phase unit.

Can grant extra mobility to other armored allies

Faye has the C skill Armor March 3 by default. This is essential to any armored party, as it allows both her and adjacent armored allies to move an extra space. In this way, she can both support her other allies while making use of the bonus on her own as well.

Valentine's Faye Weaknesses

Skills do not trigger when the foe initiates combat

Valentine's Faye's default skills only have an effect when she initiates combat, so they will not trigger in the enemy phase. With her base skillset, she is not really cut out to be a tank, and should instead thrive in the player phase.

Weak to armor effective weapons

As an armored unit, Faye will take 1.5x damage from weapons that are effective on armored units, such as Armorslayer. Be sure and check what weapons your opponents are using beforehand.

Valentine's Faye as a Source Hero

Valentine

Value of Skills ★★★★★

Inheriting Bold Fighter, Armor March, or Death Blow 4

Valentine's Faye can be used to inherit Bold Fighter or Armor March. If you have that hero learn Death Blow 1-3 from another unit beforehand, you can have them inherit Death Blow 4 as well. These are all excellent skills, but as Valentine's Faye is a rare Special Hero, think hard about your decision before you recklessly fodder her off.
