Young Minerva is a close 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.

Young Minerva's Strengths

Good at tanking physical attacks

Young Minerva at 5 stars Lv. 40 averages out at 38 Def with her skills included. With the help of Dragoon Shield, she is pretty strong against all physical attacks, and doesn't share the weakness to bows that almost all other fliers have. It also grants her +3 Atk/Spd/Def adding that adds to her overall tankiness. Combined with her decent Def, the only thing you need to be wary of when using Young Minerva are magic attackers.

Flier Formation 3 grants extra mobility

Flier Formation 3 allows Young Minerva to move to spaces that are adjacent to units 2 squares away. This allows Young Minerva to potentially jump from unit to unit and help them through attacking nearby foes or by triggering skills that require an adjacent ally. This skill provides lots of strategic value if you are using at least two other flying units aside from Young Minerva.

Dragoon Axe Slows Down Specials

Dragoon Axe accelerates special trigger and provides bonuses if the foe's HP is 100%. If the said condition is met, Dragoon Axe grants Young Minerva +4 to all stats during combat and inflicts -1 cooldown charge on foe per attack. These stat buffs and the ability to slow down opponent's specials allow Minerva to take even less damage than before. Her Def, Dragoon Axe, Dragoon Shield and her ability to take advantage of 100% HP foes allow her to become a great frontliner in maps that do not have many magic threats.

Young Minerva's Weaknesses

Low Res

Young Minerva has low Res compared to her other stats. In fact, her Res at 5 star Lv. 40 is 19 which is exactly half her Def. She can be taken out quickly by magic users, especially those with the red attribute. Always be aware of Young Minerva's positioning in relation to magic users that can deal high damage to her.

Defenseless Against Red Tomes

Unlike red breath users whom Young Minerva can at least counterattack, she is completely defenseless against red tome users. It is not unlikely that she gets taken out by these units in one turn so let her allies take out red magic users so Minerva can focus on other units.
