Defense is tempting because of sustainability and that extra +1 (to make it +4) but he also needs to kill particularly because I am not at this time running a save. Don’t need his enemies surviving and getting danced to kill his support units. But 52 Def does look good…
+Atk lends to ohko’s (but he’s got guaranteed follow ups so…)
+Def lends to bring able to tank any and everything that attacks him… And then ohko them.
Right on. So you’re for Def?
Yup. He and Bagel get lumped together so often for the same reasons. Their Atk is ridiculous to start with, and there is a clear point of diminishing returns, so at some point you need to ensure they survive long enough to retaliate.
Either way is good. I went +Atk/Res on my B!Hector and +Def/Res on B!Edelgard. I don’t have data to back it up, but it felt like B!Hector could use the Atk a little more than the Def because he’s immune to effective damage but B!Edelgard either has to sacrifice her A for that or use more defense.
