Now let’s see how Dimitri can make the most of what he is.
You can compare him to L!Ephraim. Dimitri can easily get team support but has to specificly pick his battles.
So how do you do that?
Savage blow and a healer. Savage blow should allow our good boy to keep everyone equal, remember that his weapon will basicly act as a QR too if it’s active.
Now, what special stuff can he do? The same as L!Ephraim does.
It’s really a no brainer. Dimitri has a 19 mt weapon and deathblow 4. The guy will hit hard, and I doubt his base atk is anything less than good. So Galeforce + Heavy Blade will allow him for reliable galeforce procs. It should activate every fight he initiates and gets countered in. A WoM mercy dancer will be welcome here, but even a cav team should allow for an overwhelming offence.
Preferbly I’d switch his A slot to a solo skill. Atk/Def is obvious, but a spd solo can also help if his base spd isn’t too low. Makes his enemy phase a lot more usable.
Hell he might make use out of Atk/Res Solo to avoid getting blown up when he attacks a dragon.
For his stats:
Vengance hits for 5 bonus, so his hp is likely 39-41. I’m guessing 40 for now (which is great)
In general I feel like he will have stats like L!Ephraim. Maybe accually a bit more speed, to prevent doubles. It may mean nothing, but the swordfighter in the trailer doesn’t double him.
I do think his atk and def won’t be much higher than this. The biggest question is if he drops spd or res. Res seems like the obvious choice, but we don’t know.
Could also be that he has like 25 spd and 22 res. It’s all speculation, but the 40-ish hp is almost sure and the atk is very likely high.
