Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (21) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (19) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (1) No Spd IV ★★☆☆☆
Def (15) No Def IV ★★★☆☆
Res (0) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

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

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Lex are +Atk and -Res. Since Goddess Axe guarantees him a second strike in both phases, Lex is better off getting +Atk to maximize his offenses. Unlike other Brave weapon users, Lex's Spd is not entirely useless as it can protect him from follow-up attacks because it is not in abysmally low levels. You are better off taking a bane in -Res instead as he is not designed to take attacks from magic units any way.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Lex to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With +10 merges, Lex's Atk stat will reach 54 with the weapon skill. Without a doubt, he will hit hard especially when the strengths Goddess Axe is taken advantage of.

DC Vantage LexHOT

Special Skill IconBonfire
Passive Skill BVantage 3

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

A more expensive variant of a Vantage setup. Instead of Atk/Def Push 3, you pick up Distant Counter which will allow Lex to land 2 strikes on attacking raagned units as well! Since you lose some offensive power by taking out Atk/Def Push, you should go for Joint Hone Atk instead and leave it to your support units to handle debuffs.

Special Skill IconBonfire
Passive Skill BVantage 3

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This kit simply adds Bonfire, Vantage replaces Axe Experience 3 with Atk Smoke 3, and slaps a Fierce Stance 3 Sacred Seal. All additions are fairly cheap, but are very efficient in improving Lex's viability in both phases of the game.

Lex 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.

Lex Strengths

Good Bulk Due to Self-Buffs

Lex's weapon, Goddess Axe and skill Atk/Def Push 3 give him increased Def, which gives him good bulk against enem units that deal physical damage.

Goddess Axe Allows Him to Double

Lex Strengths Fire Emblem Heroes FEH.png

When Lex enters comback, he strikes twice similar to how Brave weapons work. This gives him opportunities to one-shot enemy units. Unlike Brave weapons however, Goddess Axe strikes twice even in the enemy phase.

And since this is an extra attack and not a follow-up attack, he can still land a follow-up attack that doubles his attacks if he is faster than his foe.

This results in 4 attacks if he is able to win the Spd check or if he has a Breaker skill like Lancebreaker 3.

Lex Weaknesses

Low Res

Lex's Res only sits at 14 at Lv.40 when Goddess Axe is equipped. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Lex's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out. Make use of his great mobility to do so!

Weak to Cavalry-Effective Weapons

Lex takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Keen Gronnwolf+ and Dark Spikes T.

There are many cavalry-effective weapons in the game, so be careful and check which ones your enemy units are using!

Should you Unlock Potential for Lex?

Should You Unlock Potential for this Hero? B Rank Icon

We Recommend Unlocking Potential for Lex - Young Blade!

We recommend that you use Unlock Potential to bring Lex - Young Blade from 4 Stars to 5 Stars. Lex - Young Blade is very useful as a cavalry axe attacker, so you may find using Unlock Potential on Lex - Young Blade helpful if your team lacks a party member with this role.

Value of Skills ★★★☆☆

Inheriting Atk/Def Push 3 or Axe Experience 3

Lex can be used to inherit the skills Atk/Def Push 3 or Axe Experience 3. Reposition is a standard useful skill too, but you are better off getting it from other cheaper and more available heroes.
