@Banraku @LuteTheGod I like the skill in general, NCD, but at higher tiers I haven’t needed it as much with my Libra. That’s not a bad one for Ike though at all, since no one gets away from him. Plus, I already gave him DC so I’d have to save NCD for someone else without that skill lol.
As for SS + Lucina, i think it would work well against slow mages (Sonya, Michaiah) and slow armors, but the majority of opponents seem to be faster, so there is a good argument against SS (fast mage or swordsman hits Ike twice, as, bringing CD from 4 -> 2 -> ready, and he immediately counters with it anyway). Just thinking out loud.
So far I have QR on him, but it doesn’t work well after the first round because he has usually tanked so much his HP is out of range. I think QR is better on +Spd Nowis and Faes.
Have a spare wrath which is tempting, especially for that extra +10 damage. But I don’t wanna needlessly fodder if something doesn’t work out so I’m really thinking this through.
