IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Atk/-Spd

The best IVs for L!Edelgard are +Atk and -Spd. An +Atk IV will enable her to deal more damge with each attack. Her Spd is already low and it isn't really important for her so it is safe to take as a bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV if merging L!Edelgard to 10. Her kit allows her to potentially do two actions in one turn, allowing her to attack two times. Having a +IV in Atk maximizes the damage you can do in 2 separate attacks

L!Edelgard 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.

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

L!Edelgard Strengths

Great at soloing foes

L!Edelgard is able to trigger 4 separate effects from her kit when she has no allies adjacent to her. Effects vary from stat buffs, preventing enemy counterattacks, and even making additonal movements! The said condition is pretty easy to trigger. This makes L!Edelgard a very powerful at most times!

Raging Storm grants an extra action

Raging Storm allows L!Edelgard an additional action if she initiates combat and there are no allies adjacent to her. Unlike Galeforce, it is not put in the special skill slot, so she can enjoy additional actions without losing access to damage dealing specials like her native Bonfire.

Additionally, if the same trigger condition is met and a beast or draonstone foe attacks, she makes a guaranteed follow-up attack. This allows her to fight the powerful colorless beast and dragonstone units, Caineghis and Fallen Tiki

Armored Stride increases mobility

L!Edelgard's C skill, Armored Stride 3, allows her to move an extra space if no allies are adjacent to her. It is much easier to trigger than the other armored mobility skill, Armor March 3 that requires another armored unit to be adjacent to the user. It is very easy to trigger and it allows L!Edelgard to move like an infantry unit while boasting the high stats of an armored unit.

L!Edelgard Weaknesseses

Adjacent Allies Prevent Skill Effects

The trigger conditions of Aymr, Armored Stride 3, Raging Storm and Atk/Res Solo 3 is that there must be no allies within one square. Because of this, L!Edelgard's strengths may be hard to take advantage of in small maps or maps with long 1-tile corridors like Ursula's map for Grand Hero Battles. Be mindful of L!Edelgard's positoning in relation to her allies!

Weak to Armor Effective Weapons

L!Edelgard takes 1.5x damage from armor-effective weapons like Armorslayer+ and Rapier, and just one or two blows from this type of weapon is sure to take her down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Inheriting Atk/Res Solo 3 and Armored Stride 3

L!Edelgard can be used to inherit the skills Atk/Res Solo 3 and Armored Stride 3. However, L!Edelgard is a very powerful and rare legendary hero. We recommend training and building around her instead, unless you really want these skills on another unit.
