Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (22) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (8) Spd Boon ★★★★★
Def (9) No Def IV ★★★☆☆
Res (5) Res Bane ★★☆☆☆

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

+Spd/-Res

The best IVs for Spring Minerva are +Spd and -Res. A higher Spd stat allows Spring Minerva to get a ton of follow-up attacks on her foes. Additionally, er Spd is a superboon so you should take advantage of that as much as possible. Her Res is of less importance and thus safe to be taken as a bane. Be warned though as it is a superbane. Get a merge on her if you can!

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Spring Minerva to 10. It is best to aim for follow-up attacks to increase her offensive ability as her Atk combined with her Atk buffs is already high. If you prefer relying on skills and/or support to increase Minerva's Spd, you can go for a +Atk IV instead.

In addition to the standard Reposition, Desperation 3, and Atk/Spd Solo 3 Sacred Seal*

  • have been added to her base kit. The mentioned Seal synergizes with her native A skill. She can easily reach Desperation range if she attacks a physical unit thanks to her decent Spd and Def stats. Once she is in Desparation range, her weapon skill, and her Sacred Seal will help her in scoring one-sided engagements with foes.

    Spring Minerva is a close physical attacker (range = 1). 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.

    Spring Minerva Strengths

    Springy Lance+ grants bonuses to Atk and Spd while neutralizing debuffs

    Spring Minerva's weapon grants her Atk/Spd+5 and will also neutralize any debuffs inflicted on those same stats during combat provided that foe's HP ≥ 75%.

    This means that Minerva can attack without fear of her damage being nerfed by skills like Lull Atk/Spd 3 or Spd Ploy 3.

    Strong Solo skill that buffs Atk/Def

    Spring Minerva Willful Rabbits FEH 2021

    Spring Minerva's many native buffs excluding Odd Atk Wave 3 shown.

    Atk/Def Solo 3 grants Spring Minerva +6 Atk/Def during combat when she enters a fight without adjacent allies. This skill can be hard to take advantage of in smaller maps or maps with lots of units like Rival Domains, but it is perfectly convenient in normal maps. If you are not fond of being restricted by the trigger condition, you can choose to inherit Death Blow 3 or Life and Death 3 onto Minerva instead.

    Team gets an Atk boost on Odd-numbered turns

    Spring Minerva's default C skill Odd Atk Wave 3 will grant Minerva and adjacent allies Atk+6 on odd-numbered turns. Since this C skill actually gives the bonus to Spring Minerva and not just her allies, the combined effect of this skill, Springy Lance+, and Atk/Def Solo 3 give Tibarn +17 Atk +6 Def when entering combat unadjacent to allies.

    Spring Minerva Weakness

    Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

    Spring Minerva takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Ridersbane or a Wolf weapon like Rauðrwolf+, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to take him/her down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

    Heroes with Effective Skills

    Weak to Magic Due to Low Res

    With only 18 Res at lvl 40, Spring Minerva is extremely vulnerable against any unit using magic.

    Be careful and move her out of range of any enemy magic users when she attacks!

    Inheriting Springy Lance+ or Atk/Def Solo 3

    Spring Minerva can be used to inherit Springy Lance+ or Odd Atk Wave 3. However, Spring Minerva is a special hero that can provide some power for your cavalry lineups. Please think carefully before fodderring her off.

    All of these articles are trash. Speed on her? Are you fucking serious?! Why wouldn't I just do +Atk IV on her, especially on a +10 merge? Don't make me laugh with this stupid speed bias. She's not outspeeding any myrms or mage with that awful speed. Almost all the merges give speed IV a 5 star rating. This needs to stop. Speed is not that important in this game. There are other stats worth looking into.
