Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (26) Normal HP ★★★★★
Atk (20) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (8) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (6) Def Boon ★★☆☆☆
Res (8) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+HP/-Def

The best IVs for Xane are +HP and -Def. His weapon skill, Jokers Wild allows him to copy every other stat so Atk/Spd/Res/Def do not matter that much. This increases his survivability. His Def is of less importance if Jokers Wild is not in play, so it is safe to take as a bane.

+HP for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +HP IV when merging Xane to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. At max merges he will reach 59 HP if you include Jokers Wild's HP boost. This makes him very tanky especially when the effects of his weapon skill is utilized properly.

If you do not plan to make use of Jokers Wild's effects, you should go for a +Atk or +Spd IV instead.

Xane is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). 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.

Xane Strengths

Adopt your allies' stats with Jokers Wild!

Jokers Wild possesses one of the most interesting weapon effect in the game. It makes Xane's Atk/Spd/Def/Res equal to the highest individual stat among all allies within 2 spaces of him. Each stat is calculated independently so you can get a defensive unit like Gatrie and an offensive unit like Brave Edelgard and put them within 2 spaces of Xane. If done so, Xane adopts Gatrie's monstrous defensive stats and Brave Edelgards insane Atk stat.

The only drawback to this is that a stat will go down if said stat on Xane is higher than any of the units' same stat within 2 spaces. Plan accordingly and turn Xane into an absolute beast of a unit!

Stronger with Allies Around

Atk/Res Form 3 increases Xane's Atk/Res by the number of allies within 2 spaces of Xane. Although the max value of the buff is only +7 Atk/Res, it is still a powerful and convenient buff that is easily triggered. It has a very similar trigger condition to Jokers Wild and they can definitely run in unison to make Xane a powerful uit if you strategize your line-ups.

A good quality of this skill is that it is available in both phases unlike a skill like Mirror Impact

Grants Atk/Spd buff and Adaptive Damage to Infantry Allies

Inf. Hexblade grants Atk/Spd +2 to adjacent infantry allies at the start of the turn. More importantly, it grants them adaptive damage in the same turn. Adaptive damage is when damage is calculated using the lower of foe's Def or Res. This is a huge damage boost to your infantry allies that can cripple units with imbalanced defenses such as Michalis.

Xane Weaknesses

Reliant on allies' stats

As disucssed, Xane's main strength lies in Jokers Wild being able to copy allies' stats. Xane's stats are nothing special. In fact, the balance in his stats makes it hard for him to find a specific niche. Please be mindful when using Xane as his gimmicks are effective, but they require lots of planning and strategy to be effective.

Weak against Raven tomes

Because Xane is a colorless unit, he is at a weapon-triangle disadvantage when up against Raven tome users. Watch out for Cecilia as she carries one of the most powerful Raven tomes in Tome of Order.

Xane at 8.0?? Give the guy some reconsideration because all he needs is a truck of damage behind him and a truck of defense close with CC and null follow-up and he is arguably the strongest unit in the game

      Congrats bro. That's really special. I'm approaching the 40th summon so yeah i probably will get her or shamir. Really wanted both tho.

    • >>[20]
      Idunn is best built as a sustain omni-tank. Sol or Aether are both good options (I would personally prefer Sol). Atk Smoke 3 and her default B skills are good. You should switch the A skill to at least Distant Ward and ideally Distant Counter. The S Seal should be a Sturdy or Mirror Stance skill, whichever you think would fill the niche better on your team.
