IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk and -Def

Bernadetta's best IVs are +Atk and -Def. With her default skills, Bernadetta is capable of raising her Spd to pretty great heights, so you should focus on the damage output from each attack. Since she will usually want to avoid physical damage anyway, -Def is the ideal bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

If you want to build a +10 Merged Bernadetta, we recommend a +Atk IV. Atk +10 merges, her Atk stat will reach 53, allowing her to take out even more of her foes.

Bernadetta is a ranged physical attacker (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 stat.

Bernadetta Strengths

Has built in Desperation

Bernadetta's weapon skll Persecution Bow has the effect of Desperation, which will trigger when her HP is less than 100%, or when a Penalty is active. This skill's effect is very easy to trigger, and having it in the weapon frees up her B slot for another skill.

Can gain huge bonuses to her Atk/Spd

When the effect of Persecution Bow is combined with that of Atk/Spd Push 4, she will gain a total of +12 on both stats. This will give her incredible offensive capability, as well as the power to gain a follow-up attack on most foes.

Can lower enemy Spd/Def during combat

Bernadetta has the B skill Lull Spd/Def, which will inflict Spd/Def-3 on a foe and nullify any bonuses to those stats. This will further increase the bonuses she gets off of her Weapon and A skill, so her base toolkit has excellent synergy.

Bernadetta Weaknesses

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

Bernadetta takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Ridersbane, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to take him down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Inheriting Atk/Spd Push

Bernadetta can be used to inherit Atk/Spd Push 4. However, she is a pretty strong unit on her own, so we recommend building and leveling her up before using a duplicate for fodder.
