Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (17) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (13) Spd Bane ★★★★☆
Def (2) No Def IV ★★★☆☆
Res (3) Res Boon ★★☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-Def

The best IVs for Ninja Lyn are +Atk and -Def. Since her weapon can nail second strikes, and her kit is designed to make it easy for her to nail quad-attacks, getting a +Atk IV would be best in significantly increasing her damage. Her Def is of less importance so it can be safely taken as his bane.

Additionally, her +Atk is a superboon so you should take advantage of it as much as possible.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Ninja Lyn to 10. This is for the same reasons as above and at this point, she can take out a lot of units out even with just 2 strikes.

Ninja Lyn is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). 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.

Duo Skill Usable in Arena

Ninja Lyn's Duo Skill raises her arena score, in addition to unleashing a powerful battle effect. Duo Heroes have a Duo Skill which can be used once per map. Additionally, her Duel effect treats her stats as 185 in Arena modes, giving her a huge advantage over many other heroes.

The effect of Lyn's Duo Skill is shown below

Ninja Lyn.png

Her duo skill grants her an additional action. It will only work if she has already entered combat in said turn so make sure she is able to land an attack beforehand. This duo skill can only be used once per map.

You can read the in-game text for Ninja Lyn's duo skill and the duel component in this section!

Ninja Lyn Strengths

Access to a Duo Skill

As discussed above, Ninja Lyn has access to a duo skill that grants her an additional action. Though this can only be activated once per map, it will provide her with enough room for the powerful Tailwind Shuriken to take out even the most durable of enemies. Use it well!

Since Tailwind Shuriken is a dagger, this means that by the second action, your enemy will be most likely already inflicted with 【Dagger 7】. This makes the chance of taking out the affected enemy very high.

Nail consistent quad-attacks with Tailwind Shuriken!

Tailwind Shuriken is similar to a Brave weapon in the sense that it allows its user to score 2 strikes in one attack if they initiate damage. This is an extra attack and not a follow-up attack so when you are able to get an outspeed, Ninja Lyn can land 4 strikes in one action. This makes her a very powerful player phase attacker. Another key difference between her weapon and Brave weapons is that Tailwind Shuriken grants +4 Spd unlike Brave weapons that inflict a Spd penalty. This makes scoring quad-attacks very easy for Lyn.

Like most daggers, it inflicts a -7 Def/Res debuff to target and all foes within 2 spaces of target after combat. As mentioned, this can be easily taken advatange of Lyn when using her Duo Skill.

Create an amazing gap between your offenses (Atk/Spd) and the enemy defenses (Def/Spd) to deal huge amounts of damage

The fan favorite Swift Sparrow 3 grants Ninja Lyn +6 Atk +7 Spd in the player phase to help Tailwind Shuriken's knock-out potential. In addition, Spd/Def Rein inflicts -4 Spd/Def on any enemy within 2 spaces of Lyn.

Combined, these two effectively gives +10 Atk +11 Spd to Ninja Lyn. This makes a lethal quad-attack from her very easy to score.

Ninja Lyn Weaknesses

Weak defenses

Ninja Lyn's defensive stats are not very high and considering that Tailwind Shuriken inflicts -4 Def/Res to her, she is very vulnerable to strong attacks. Losing her in battle would be detrimental to your team as she provides lots of knock-out potential on a wide range of units. Use her flying movement to position her away from units that can easily take her out.

Weak to bows

As a flying unit, X 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.

    • Thank you so much bro. That was really helpful. Will try to have my +10 merge project ASAP. I need 200 more orbs to try and pull for that. I hope there will be good 4* units coming on the future (maybe with the new year).
