Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Tempest Trials, Masquerade Eldigan will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Masquerade Eldigan are +Atk and -Res. His weapon and base stats allow him to deal decent amounts of damage so a +Atk IV helps him do even more damage. This is important as he will find himself needing to attack other units instead of refreshing allies. His Res is very low and it is not that reliable so it is safe to take it as his bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Masquerade Eldigan to 10. This is for the same reason as above. At this point he can serve as a combat support hybrid with his decent Atk stat.

Masquerade Eldigan 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.

Masquerade Eldigan Strengths

Refresher-assist unit with the benefits of flying movement

Masquerade Eldigan is a flying unit with an assist skill that grants an additional action. As flying units are not restricted in movement by terrains such as forests and rivers, flying units with refresher assists make wonderful support units. Additionally, he has access to Caldera Dance 2 and Def Opening 3 in his base kit which grants him even more ability to support his allies. His high utility makes him a great option as a support unit in an all-flier team.

Damage reduction against follow-up attacks

As long as Eldigan's HP is at least 50%, Courtly Candle+ grants him +5 Atk/Def and reduces the damage from the enemy's first attack by 50% if they are able to score a follow-up attack on Masquerade Eldigan.

Can Buff Regardless of Position

Def Opening 3 grants +6 Def to the ally with the highest Def stat on the map, regardless of Eldigan's position in relation to that ally. This makes him a great support unit for high Def powerhouses such as Idunn or Caineghis.

If highest Def is tied between multiple units, they will all be buffed! Make use of Sacred Seals and skills to try and balance the Def stats of your units.

Masquerade Eldigan Weaknesses

Low Magic Defenses

Masquerade Eldigan's Spd and Res sit at only 26 and 18 respectively. This makes him extremely fragile even against magic units with average Spd. Be mindful of his positioning in relation to magic units that can easily take him out.

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, Masquerade Eldigan 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.

Masquerade Eldigan as a Source Hero

Masquerade Eldigan Avatar

Value of Skills ★★★★☆

Inheriting Courtly Candle+

Masquerade Eldigan can be used to inherit the skill Courtly Candle+. However, Masquerade Eldigan is a very versatile bow refresher-assist unit that can fill in many niche spots in your line-up so please think carefully before fodderring him off.

He can also only be obtained from Tempest Trials+ or from using Heroic Grails. This means that the number of Masquerade Eldigans you can get is limited.
