Legendary Seliph Strengths

Inflicts Debuffs when Attacked

Virtuous Tyrfing inflicts -6 Atk/Def at the start of combat on foe if Seliph is either attacked or his HP < 100% at start of combat. Because of its easy trigger conditions, it is active most of the time in the player-phase but it has a guaranteed activation in the enemy phase. Additionally, as long as Seliph hits the enemy, even if he deals 0 damage, the weapon heals him for 7 HP. This makes him a durable offensive unit that still has bite even in the enemy phase.

Guaranteed Enemy-phase Follow-up attack

Holy War's End guarantees a follow-up attack for Seliph if foe initiates combat. This follow-up attack is done after the foe's first attack so Seliph has a high chance of taking the foe out before receiving the next attack. The only trigger condition for this is having more than or equal to 50% HP. It's effects are similar to Quick Riposte 3.

Distant Counter allows Legendary Seliph to counterattack ranged foes making the effect of Holy War's End even deadlier. Additionally, Virtuous Tyrfing constantly heals Seliph making the HP requirement for Holy War's End easy to meet.

Excellent Physical Tank

Legendary Seliph's skills as discussed above, all synergnize to make him a durable enemy-phase unit can absorb and dish-out tons of damage just by stepping in the danger zone. His C skill, Joint Hone Def allows him to stack even more Def. For his special, Ignis, fills the slot perfectly as it makes use all of his physical durability and turns it into raw damage. Additionally, it further incentivizes stacking huge amounts of Def onto Seliph.

Legendary Seliph Weaknesses

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

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