Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (22) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (12) No Spd IV ★★★★☆
Def (4) Def Bane ★★☆☆☆
Res (10) No Res IV ★★★★★

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

+Res/-Def

The best IVs for Ronan are +Res and -Def. Ronan is not built to take blows from physical units to begin with so having some points off his Def would not harm his viability significantly. With that, you should maximize his Res as much as possible as his playstyle is trying to force unfair matchups on magical units.

+Res for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Res IV when merging Ronan to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. Of course, you can also go for +Atk or +Spd IVs depending on your needs.

Ronan 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.

Ronan Strengths

Weapon skill can create a large gap in Atk stats

Ronan's weapon, Indignant Bow, grants +6 Atk to Ronan and inflicts -6 Atk to the enemy if either:

  • foe's HP is 100%
  • or if foe initiates combat

If at least one condition is met, said buffs and penalties to Atk will activate and it will also clears any penalties to Ronan in the Atk stat and it neutralizes bonuses to foe's Atk. This means that in both phases, Indignant Bow can create a huge gap between Atk stats. This leads to increased damage coming from Ronan and decreased damage coming from foes.

Ronan Enemy Phase Bonuses Fire Emblem Heroes FEH.png

On top of the many bonuses Ronan gets from Indignant Bow and Swift Stance, he also inflicts a -6 Atk penalty to the green flier

Posseses skills that improve Spd of his team

First off, Swift Stance 3 grants Ronan +6 Spd/Res during combat and inflicts Special cooldown charge -1 to any foe that attacks him. This improves his matchups with fast mages by a ton.

Since Swift Stance 3 is an in-combat buff, it stacks with the effects of Joint Drive Spd which grants +4 Spd to Ronan and Allies if they are within 2 spaces of each other during combat. It is a useful skill to have in most team compositions as it is both easy to utilize and everyone can benefit from it. This means that Ronan can easily secure a +10 Spd buff if he meets both conditions!

You can also secure a +10 Spd buff to your allies as the buff from Joint Drive Spd, stacks with Rally Spd/Res+. This means that having Ronan on the field makes it less likely to have problems against speedy lineups.

Ronan Weaknesses

Low Def

Ronan's Def only sits at 17 at Lv.40. This makes it very easy for physical units to take him out. Be mindful of Ronan's positioning in relation to physical units that can easily take him out.

As much as possible, avoid matchups with physical units as he is not build to take on said units to begin with.

Inheriting Swift Stance 3 or Joint Drive Spd

Ronan can be used to inherit the skills Swift Stance 3 or Joint Drive Spd. However, Ronan is a rare blue bow unit who can fill in the niche role as an enemy phase unit so please think carefully before fodderring him off.
