Young Innes Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (25) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (8) Spd Boon ★★★★★
Def (7) Def Boon ★★☆☆☆
Res (5) Res Bane ★★☆☆☆

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

Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Tempest Trials, Young Innes will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Spd/-HP

The best IVs for Young Innes are +Spd and -HP.

He has a Superboon in Spd and raising it will enable him to potentially double enemy units.

If you would like more one-shot potential, however, you can also opt to make him +Atk instead.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Spd IV when merging Young Innes. He will have 46 Spd at +10, making it easier for him to double.

If you would like more power of out him, consider +Atk for merging instead.

Young Innes 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.

Young Innes Strengths

Possesses a prf. bow with an EXTREMELY ideal effect!

If Young Innes' HP ≥ 25%, Bow of Frelia grants +6 Atk/Spd. It also grants an effect similar to the high demand Deadeye where the bow can neutralize non-special damage reduction effects if his Special activates. So in a way, it emulates Deadeye's mechanics. Although instead of doubling the damage, it inflicts +7 pure damage against the foe. This is on top of effects of the Special skill he is using so expect big damage!

Additionaly, it accelerates Innes' Special trigger. This puts Glimmer on a cooldown count of 1. This means that you can consistently neutralize damage reduction skills if you choose to stick with Glimmer.

Young Innes Weaknesses

Requires investment to be a solid option

Young Innes is expected to have a solid statline, couple that with the very powerful Bow of Frelia, he makes for a very solid unit whom you can certainly build around. However, he needs a lot of additional pieces as Swift Sparrow 2 is easily outclassed, and Distant Guard 3 fulfills a function that is best put on a supporting unit. If you wish to use Innes in competitive game modes such as the Arena, you may want to get additional pieces onto him first.

Inheriting Swift Sparrow 2 or Distant Guard 3

Young Innes can be used to inherit Swift Sparrow 2 or Distant Guard 3. However, you can only acquire Young Innes from Tempest Trials or from using Heroic Grails, so think carefully before foddering him off.

Young Innes possesses a very powerful weapon in Bow of Frelia, you might want to built a strong copy before thinking about making him into fodder!
