Lyon could fill a hole in my Astra teams as an AoE soaker, which is pretty hard to do in Astra compared to Light
Light carries: Caineghis & Kaden (AoE soaker and Special Fighter/Noontime), Young Marth (part tank, part Vantage), Fallen Ike (Repel tanking)
Bridal Fjorm is on Light also.
Duo Alfonse used to be Light, but with all the Yunes and Bramimonds and other stuff running around, I think he’ll do better on Astra.
My other Astra carries are Brave Ike & Brave Lucina (basically does every single battle), and Young Caeda (niche Vantage user, haven’t been able to find a good match for her yet lol)
I have my Aversa on Astra.
I also run Legendary Leif sometimes if it’s the right season and I remember to swap my flux team. :feh_legion:
True, debuff negation is insanely powerful. Ike can also just stack stats in order to try to soak shrines, which only makes him even more powerful. This isn’t something any other unit can do (Brunnya and Idunn ignore debuffs, which isn’t the same thing)
Yay base kit!
His base kit is wonderful, but it is very easily countered by Panic.
Then again, I can always just run the normal Brave Ike team if Panic is a problem. That team doesn’t use visible buffs.
