He might not be unique, but this king can pull his weight

maxed out version

And a more budget from him (only needs 5* Conrad + QR fodder)

So yeah, might be weird focussing on his res, but I think that’s the best way.
If you want speed, go Cormag (or one of the many pegasi)

Travant is a flying wall, with great atk and especially amazing HP.
The upside of no prf and good bst is that he’s able to stack up some nice stats.
While I’d still call him ‘Blue Haar’ he is better.

So what does the first build give him?
When defending in close range he’ll have 57 atk, 52 def and 37 res. With a neat guard effect.
It’s 62 atk, 56 def and 42 res maxed out.

I do hope we get something like an inheritable improved Iotes shield with +6 def or something… Too many bulky fliers face issues with that, but I find running normal Iote is a waste of stats.

i don’t really see the difference from Valter

Now that you mention it…
If we talk art Travant looks like he lives healthier. Can’t live on only meat Valter!

As for stats… That’s a good gap in bulk and Travant has atk.
Sure Valter has a prf, but that one is utterly unsuited to a defencive build like this

Likely what I’ll be going with for him. Still not happy with how they treated him, but the least I can do is have some fun building him. Likely not optimal, but I like it this way. That phenomenal physical bulk makes it easier to just stack attack and speed, and with HP this high, Sudden Panic will be great support as well

Well it’s all taste but…

Travant for full defence/res build
Cormag for a spd/def build
Valter praying for a refine (and brazen focussed builds)

I could give my opinion about that build.
But let’s not. I’m happy that you tried showing him some love

then do it

It’s kinda… well…
Not that great.

The speed is not on a level it’ll do you any good.

So that’s 38 def with 39 res.

Purely vs Melee foes the Travant I build for +1 (so 7 merges less) has 6 more atk, 14 more def and just 2 less res.
And it’s not like Valter will tank archers. But even mages… getting doubled with 39 res… You’ll need to stack up on wards.
Someone like Sigrun or Thea could probably do it better (especially using distand ward)

Personally res is the one stat I’d fully ignore with Valter, I’d rather go with atk/spd/def

well, he’s another lance flier

Not untrue.

But the games more fun when building units I like.
Even if it’s an uphill battle

Mixed Defense Flying Lance… Yeah I got that covered already.

Edit: on that subject why are you focusing efforts to improve his res but refining for Def? Capping at 46(52) defense would be good enough for 4 extra Res I’d imagine.
