Might: 16  Range: 1
Grants Def+3. Grants Atk/Def +X during combat. (Calculates X based on number of allies within 2 spaces of unit: 0 allies grants +6; 1 ally grants grants +4, 2 allies grants +2; ≥ 3 allies grants +0.) If the number of allies within 2 spaces is ≤ 1, neutralizes foe's bonuses (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.) during combat.

Cooldown Count = 4
Boosts damage dealt by 80% of unit’s Def.

If unit's HP ≤ 75% and foe initiates combat, unit can counterattack before foe's first attack.

Fallen Orson Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (26) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) Spd Bane ★★★☆☆
Def (13) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (4) Res Boon ★★☆☆☆

◯ = 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 Grand Hero Battle, Fallen Orson will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Atk/-HP

The best IVs for Fallen Orson are +Atk and -HP. This is picked up to maximize the damage he deals from his high-damage, single-hit style. HP is of less importance so it is safe to take as his bane

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Orson to 10. This is for the same reasons as above and at this point, he will reach 61 Atk. You can also take advantage of the superboon in +Res if you want more protection from magic units

Fallen Orson 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.

Fallen Orson Strengths

Massive Buffs to Atk and Def While He Doesn't Have Any Allies Nearby

Fallen Orson's Bereft Lance grants him +6 to his Atk and Def when he has no allies within 2 spaces.

This makes him an excellent solo attacking unit or physical tank, especially if paired with his Rouse Atk/Def 3 C skill.

Fallen Orson Weaknesses

Low Res Makes Him an Easy Target for Mages

Unfortunately for Fallen Orson, his low Res will make him an easy opponent for mages, as without any Distant Counter in his base kit, he will be unable to launch a counterattack.

Mages like Reinhardt or Thrasir should have no problems in dealing with him.

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

Fallen Orson takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Ridersbane, 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!

      If u are New go for Quantity instead of merges .. Merges are only worth it if u go all the way from a purely Performance point of view
