Is this Alfonse build good?

As I’ve mentioned before, I really like Alfonse. Both as a character and a unit. I liked Alfonse before Book 3 made him Cool, even. Now, I’ve been thinking of builds for him, and I think I may have found something that works.

Thoughts? I tried to balance his bulk, while keeping his superior Attack. Special Spiral with Glimmer will fire it off every combat, allowing him to really kill. I’ve got the fodder, as I don’t have anyone else that could use Special Spiral, and I’ve got 2 -Spd Lewyns. Any help is appreciated!

Yeah kinda. Although without a double I question some arena kills

If I’m not wrong upgraded Folkvangr’s effect is a Brazen Atk/Def right?
I mean, since ur already running another Brazen Atk/Def and Brazen Atk/Res, why not run Draconic Aura? It makes him hit a lot harder on his specials not gonna lie.
Also, I think QR might b btr so u can get some doubles off. Unless ur making him a one shot melee specialist with Draconic Aura then ye fine.
Other than that I think its pretty good. Altho, Ardent Sacrifice might be pretty good replacement for Reciprocal Aid if ur gg with an assist skill that triggers his brazen.
Now then, he might b a good unit to test Nino’s strength! XD just saying

Well, with All his Brazens, he reaches 76 Atk +6 from Even Atk Wave. Combine that with a Glimmer every round, and I’m imagining him killing most things. He counters Surtr like a boss, that’s for sure.

I usually prefer Wrath for him. The flat +10 is always welcome for B I G N U M E R A L S.

In arena most things might live because dragons and armor. That’s why I typically take a survivability route.

You literally replaced Bonfire with Draconic Aura and thought I wouldn’t notice? Whaddya take me for? He’ll definitely hit hard, but they’ll still need a turn to charge. That’s why I didn’t put it. And I doubt he can test Nino’s strength. He’s just an Alfonse after all. He can kill her, but I think it’s a matter of who initiates.

I thought of that, but I don’t have Wrath fodder at the moment. It’s definitely a viable strategy.

He still reaches like 50/37 Def/Res, so I think he’s good there. Especially if it’s a bonus season. They become 54/41 plus him having like 65 HP!

Dude don’t take it the wrong way XD. Just thought of some other stuff. Actually now that I think of it again, Bonfire would work btr

I didn’t take it the wrong way. It’s just funny how you swapped Bonfire for Draconic Aura. Thanks for the advice!

How do i word this?

Atk refine
Unless I’m missisng something,
Isn’t an attack refine really bad?

55 attack is enough dude

55 Atk and Triple Brazen should suffice for Attack. I wanted to focus on his tankiness.

At least you did the Math! I never do that.

Switch to Brazen Atk/Spd so he can prevent getting doubled.


He does look good.
But wouldn’t the brazen refine help more?
Does it also add a gem effect or something?

I think you should check the effect of his weapon… It grants Brazen Atk/Def by default. The added effect is Triangle Adept, which I’m trying to avoid.

That’s a great idea! I’m surprised I didn’t think of that. Thanks!
