Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (26) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (9) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (10) No Def IV ★★☆☆☆
Res (6) 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 Dieck are +Atk and -Def. Since Dieck can guarantee follow-up attacks through Tiger-Roar Axe, he does not heavily rely on Spd. Because of this, it is better to directly increase his damage by taking a +Atk IV. It is also a superboon so you should take advantage of it as much as possible.

For the preferred bane, you can go for a -Def IV as Dieck can afford a bane here as it is pretty high! It will balance his Def and Res stats which is ideal for a frontline unit like him. Of course this stat should not be neglected so we recommend getting that merge as soon as possible.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Dieck to 10. This is for the same reasons as above! If you max him out, Dieck will be able to take out a large range of enemies if he is able to score the follow-up attack from Tiger-Roar Axe.

Dieck Best Builds

Sturdy Impact DieckHOT

Special Skill IconAether

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This replaces Close Def 4 with Sturdy Impact, a more offensive player phase skill. Again, it utilizes a Death Blow 3 Sacred Seal. Because of these changes, it makes Dieck very player phase oriented. Make sure to understand how Tiger-Roar Axe works to frequently land hard-hitting follow-up attacks with Dieck!

Budget Dieck

Special Skill IconLuna

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a minimal investment build for Dieck. The idea is to utilize Tiger-Roar Axe's guaranteed follow-up attack by slapping a Death Blow 3 Sacred Seal onto him to greatly increase his player phase firepower.

Dieck 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.

Dieck Strengths

Weapon skill grants an all-stat buff and can allow him to score guaranteed follow-up attacks!

Tiger-Roar Axe grants +5 Atk/Spd/Def/Res to Dieck if he :

  • Initiates combat / attacks in the player phase
  • if he is within 2 spaces of an ally and is attacked in the enemy phase

Also, if he meets either of the conditions above and the enemy is at 100% HP, he makes a guaranteed follow-up attack. Make sure to prioritize

On top of that, Tiger-Roar Axe also accelerates Dieck's special trigger (cooldown count-1).

Strong Against Melee Units

Close Def 4 grants +8 Def/Res is Sigurd is attacked by a sword, axe, lance or dragonstone unit. This makes him a decent tank unit in the enemy phase if all enemies are of said unit types. It patches his weakness of having a relatively low Res against dragonstone units. This skill does not affect tome and staff users, so be wary of these unit types. In addition, it also neutralizes foe's bonuses from Rally, Fortify, etc. during combat.

Casts a penalty on nearby foes while gaining a bonus on his own stats

Dieck's C Skill Threat Atk/Def 3 will give him Atk/Def+5 and inflict Atk/Def-5 on foes within two spaces at the start of a turn. This is an extremely strong buff skill, but just be wary that the effect will only trigger if Dieck starts within two spaces of a foe when the turn starts.

This can be seen as a +10 Atk/Def bonus when fighting physical foes. Couple this with Close Def 4 if the enemy is a melee physical unit and you will most likely win the matchup! Feel free to throw Dieck into danger zones that cover lots of melee physical units as he has the potential to sweep those spots.

His whole kit makes him strong in both phases! Make sure that Dieck is mostly in the front line as this is where he shines most.
