Young Lyon Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) HP Superboon ★★★☆☆
Atk (25) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (5) Spd Bane ★★☆☆☆
Def (8) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (9) No Res IV ★★★★☆

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

+Atk/-Spd

Young Lyon's best IVs are hands down +Atk and -Spd. Young Lyon's offensive style is to hit hard with single strikes that are sometimes boosted by Iceberg whenever it is up so getting a +Atk IV is ideal. His Spd is really low and he relies on skills like Quick Riposte to nail follow-up attacks so -Spd is the ideal bane for him.

You could also get a +Res IV is you prefer a tanky Young Lyon build.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Young Lyon to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. At this point, he will hit very hard especially against colorless units whom Tome of Grado is strong against.

How to Use, Explanation

This is a high budget build for Young Lyon that makes use of Mirror Stance 3 Sacred Seal to synergize with Tome of Grado, and Quick Riposte 3 to become a very powerful unit in the enemy phase. Null C-Disrupt 3 is taken to make sure that this Young Lyon build is not shut down by skills that block counterattacks. You could say this is a vital skill in competitive maps.

Budget Young Lyon

Special Skill IconSol

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

A simple Solo setup for Young Lyon. Since his Spd is beyond saving, the efficient way to increase is survivability is to increase his Def/Res levels. Taking the Atk/Def Solo 3 Seal is one way to do this as he already has native access to Atk/Res Solo 3. Last but not the least, Quick Riposte 3 is taken to leverage his hard-hitting attacks and it synergizes well with Tome of Grado's effects that are centered in the enemy phase. Sol is taken for more sustain.

Young Lyon is a ranged magic 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 Res stat.

Young Lyon Strengths

Tome of Grado is a powerful tome, that is extra helpful against colorless foes!

If foe initiates combat, or if foe's HP = 100%:

  • Inflicts -6 Atk/Res on foe.
  • Neutralizes Lyon's penalties to Atk/Res during combat

Additionally, if it meets the previous condition and the foe is of the colorless attribute, it grants a Raven-effect to Young Lyon which basically grants him weapon-triangle advantage over the foe. This is a 20% damage bonus against the foe, and a 20% damage reduction benefiting Lyon.

Even if you are not against a colorless foe, Lyon can enjoy the primary effect and it is accessible on both phases of the game!

Access to a Nifty Atk/Res buff

Tome of Grado Young Lyon FEH

Tome of Grado's penalty can also be seen above

Atk/Res Solo 3 grants +6 to Atk/Res when Young Lyon is not adjacent to allies. This adds to his offensive and defensive ability making him a good match-up to many magic-using foes.

This works well with the penalties inflicted by Tome of Grado

Adds Durability to Tanky Units

Def/Res Gap 3 adds +5 Def/Res to the ally unit with the highest Def + Res total in your team. This skill excludes Young Lyon, so it always gets applied to the tankiest member of your team, making him a good support for tank units.

Iceberg takes advantage of his high Res

Iceberg, Young Lyon's special, has a long cooldown but it hits very hard as it adds 50% of Young Lyon's Res to his damage. This it fitting for him since he already has high Res levels. This means that you can stack a ton of Res into Young, building his bulk, but also be able to dish out tons of damage!
