Hello, fellow Summoners. I want to build an Astra AR-O centered around Chrom.
Sealed Falchion is really good against Duma and even Seiros (though I will still need to be careful tanking her). Well, Sealed Falchion is just really good. His resplendent is also hot.
Why not Lucina or Masked Marth?
Lucina is 5* locked and it will take me a very long time to max merge. When it comes to Masked Marth, even though I’ve been playing this game since the beginning, I didn’t play it seriously enough back then to collect the free copies; and I would like to spend my grails on other projects. Besides, I like Chrom’s extra bulk and attack.
Who will be supporting him?
A Far Save tank. Most likely Brave Hector because, although he’s too boring and meta, he’s just way too good, but I would also like other Far Save suggestions. When it comes to Mythics, I’ll be using Reginn, Altina, Plumeria, and Naga most of the time. I also have Ashera, who will definitely help Chrom more than Naga, but I’m accounting for a “worst case scenario.”
I have two builds planned for him:
Why Joint Drive Atk? Wouldn't the Spd version be more useful?
Normally yeah, but in the sims I ran, Chrom needs every bit of extra Atk in order to duel units like Seiros and even F!Edelgard (Build 2 lets him safely tank a +1 low investment one). Speedy duelists might be a problem though.
Why only 10 Dragonflowers?
Usually, it’s not good to pump visible stats too high thanks to Shrines.
Why not Kestrel Stance for Build 2?
I’m considering it. It’s usually better to go 100% player phase or enemy phase.
