Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (20) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (26) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (7) No Spd IV ★★★☆☆
Def (11) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (4) No Res IV ★☆☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Pirate Tibarn are +Atk and -Res. Since he can guarantee follow-up attacks, it is best to maximize his Atk damage instead. It is also a superboon, so you should take advantage of it as much as possible. A superboon means he gets +4 in this stat instead of the normal +3 if he possesses a boon in said stat. His Res is very low and it is of less importance so it is safe to take it as his bane.

Pirate Tibarn is a close physical attacker (range = 1). 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 stat.

Pirate Tibarn Strengths

Sky-Pirate Claw grants buffs plus guaranteed follow-ups

Sky-Pirate Claw accelerates Tibarn's Special trigger. It also grants +5 Atk and inflicts -5 on foe during combat if Pirate Tibarn is not adjacent to an ally. If the same trigger condition is met, he is also guaranteed a follow-up attack.

Like other beast weapons, it grants him with a transformation bonus whenever he is adjacent to only beast or dragon allies or no allies at all at the start of a turn. The transformation bonus grants him 1 extra space of movement and +2 Atk. Take note that Pirate Tibarn is flying which means this is 3 spaces of flying movement. This makes him one of the most mobile units in the game on top of being able to dish out large amounts of damage.

Immediate follow-up attack

Dive-Bomb 3 allows Pirate Tibarn to score a follow-up attack immediately after his attack provided that him and his foe are at least 80% HP or more. It synergizes well with Sky-Pirate Claw as it potentially enables Tibarn to pick-out units without taking damage.

Amazing kit designed to make Pirate Tibarn an amazing offensive unit

As discussed above, Pirate Tibarn's kit makes him an amazing offensive powerhouse. Sky-Pirate Claw and Dive-Bomb 3 allows him to easily take out enemies with both high power and high mobility. On the other hand, Galeforce improves his mobility even more and in some situations, Pirate Tibarn can take out 2 units in one turn without refresher skills! Heavy Blade 4 drives the nail into the coffin as it adds pure damage to Tibarn's attacks and speeds-up Galeforce even more!

Pirate Tibarn Weaknesses

Low Res

Pirate Tibarn sports a very low Res. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Tibarn's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out.

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Pirate Tibarn takes 1.5x damage from bows and weapons effective on flying units. Be sure to keep them out of the range of archers and leave them to other units.
