Legendary Chrom Skills at 5★


Might: 14  Range: 2
Effective against flying and armored foes. Grants Atk+ 3. If foes HP = 100% at start of the combat, neutralizes penalties on unit and inflicts Atk/Def -6 on foe during combat.

Range: 1
Moves target ally to opposite side of the unit and grants another acton to unit. Grants Atk+ 6 to unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) for 1 turn and inflicts【Isolation】on unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) through their next action. (Does not stack).
【Isolation】
Target cannot use or be the target of Assist skills through its next action. (Target can neither use nor be the targer of skills like Dance and Sing, skills that neutralize penalties, like Restore and Harsh Command+, etc.)

Enables unit to counterattack regardless of distance to attacker.

Inflicts Atk/Def-3 on foe and neutralizes foe's bonuses to Atk/Def (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.) during combat.

At start of turn, if unit is not adjacent to an ally, grants Def/Res+6 to unit for 1 turn.

Legendary Chrom Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (26) Attack Bane ★★★★★
Spd (7) Spd Boon ★★☆☆☆
Def (12) Def Bane ★★★★☆
Res (3) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk and -Spd

Legendary Chrom's best IVs are +Atk and -Spd. With a +Atk boon, he can increase his damage output, and take down more enemies. With his rather poor Spd stat, it is ideal for a flaw.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

If you are merging a +10 L!Chrom, we recommend +Atk. With +10 merges and an Atk boon, Chrom's Atk stat reaches 66, which well let him take down more foes and be even more effective against fliers and armored units.

+Spd is also a good option. Since he has a superboon in Spd, +10 merges and a Spd asset will give him a Spd stat of 34, and by using other skills to buff his Spd, he will be able to avoid taking follow-up attacks from his foes.

L!Chrom is a ranged physical attack phase unit. 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.

As a Legendary Hero, you will gain a Water Blessing when summoning L!Chrom. Additionally, being a Water type Legendary Hero means that during Water Seasons, other allies with a Water Blessing will receive HP+3 when they appear in battle with L!Chrom, and his total stats will be treated as 175. This will lead to a higher Arena Score.

Legendary Chrom Strengths

Weapon can nullify penalties on Chrom while inflicting penalties on a foe

L!Chrom has the exclusive weapon Randgríðr, which will neutralize any penalties on him and inflict Atk/Def -6 on a foe during combat when the foe has 100% HP.

This skill gives him a huge advantage in combat, and paired with the fact that it is effective on armored and flying foes, he has the power to OHKO a vast number of foes.

FEHLegendaryChrom Effective on flying foes.PNG

Exclusive assist skill grants him additional movement after repositioning an ally

When L!Chrom uses his assist skill To Change Fate! on an ally, it will move the ally and grant them Atk+6 and allow Chrom to move again.

Reposition is easily one of the most useful assists in the game, and being able to move an ally ahead without putting himself in a bad position is a huge bonus.

Can tank close attacks thanks to Close Counter

Since L!Chrom can learn Close Counter by default, he will be able to fight back against close ranged attackers that attack him.

When combined with his B and C skills Lull Atk/Def 3 and Rouse Def/Res 3, plus the penalties inflicted by his weapon skill, he is great at reducing the enemy's damage output and tanking their attack to follow up with a strong counterattack.

FEHLegendaryChromCloseCounter.png

Legendary Chrom Weaknesses

Low Res and Spd

L!Chrom suffers from poor Res and Spd stats, so he is very prone to taking follow-up attacks, which can be lethal if the enemy is a magic attacker or dragon.

This can be somewhat alleviated with skills and buffs from support units, but in general, he needs to avoid taking damage from magic attackers and certain non-armored dragons.

Teammates for Legendary Chrom

Líf Icon Líf Altina Icon Altina Lysithea Icon Lysithea Legendary Azura Icon Legendary Azura
Peony Icon Peony Brave Lucina Icon Brave Lucina New Year Peony Icon New Year Peony Brave Ike Icon Brave Ike

Strong Supports

Legendary Chrom can be used within any type of team, but he can benefit from a team supporting him. Brave Lucina can grant him buffs with her weapon, as can dancers like Peony and Legendary Azura.

Brave Ike can stand in as a tank unit, being able to take hits for Legendary Chrom, though Chrom can stand beside him as a tank as he has very low speed and won't be able to double on his own.

Damage Teammates

If you're running a Vantage 3 build for Legendary Chrom, you can run someone like Líf to tick his HP down when he attacks.

You can pair him with Altina if she's also running a Vantage build so both will have it ready if you are using Líf to damage them enough.

As you'll be scoring kills for Legendary Chrom mostly on the enemy phase, you can have him stand in as a tanky unit for your team, while you have full burst units like Lysithea to take care of other enemy units like tanks.

Boey Icon Boey Echidna Icon Echidna Brave Ike Icon Brave Ike Annette Icon Annette

Triangle Adept Units

Legendary Chrom can be brought down by investing in a unit with Triangle Adept 3 on their A slot.

Units like Boey and Nino can stand in as mages that can use their own color advantage to potentially one-shot him.

Give them a low cooldown special like Moonbow to take him out in one go.

Tanky Units

Tanky units like Brave Hector and Brave Ike can take hits from Legendary Chrom and then retaliate either with a Distant Counter effect or when they attack him.

Brave Ike packs a lot of damage reduction in his kit and can take advantage of his color advantage to make sure Chrom barely lays a scratch on him.

brave Hector, on the other hand, has insanely high Def and can retaliate with Ostian Counter to potentially one-shot him from a distance.

Fast Green Units

Echidna and Annette can easily out-speed Legendary Chrom to take him out in one turn due to him being a lot slower.

They also boast high Atk to further improve their one-shot potential.

Inheriting Lull Atk/Def or Rouse Def/Res

L!Chrom can be foddered off to inherit Lull Atk/Def 3 or Rouse Def/Res 3. If doing so, you should try and inherit Close Counter simultaneously.

However, as a very powerful and rare Legendary Hero, we recommend keeping and developing at least one Legendary Chrom before foddering off or merging any duplicates you pull.

Lv. 40 Dialogue Believe in the allies who rush to your side. Even if they cannot always be there, their willingness is enough. Bonds forged on the field can shatter the shackles of despair more cleanly than any blade. Let us walk our two paths together, and forge our bonds as well, for both paths lead to one destination-peace.

Lv. 40 Dialogue When you fight for what you believe in, struggle is inevitable...but one can never know what tomorrow will bring. There are times when it feels as if you are entombed in darkness, like you will never see light again… But as we come together, our shared faith in one another can give rise to hope, which lights the way to victory. You may have more skill than I in the art of war, but I do know one thing… Fighting alone will just get you killed. ~Continued on next post
