So I pulled a +HP/-SPD Igrene last night and I ultimately decided to fodder her to Edelgard for LD4 and Special Spiral. Now, I’m in the middle of piecing together a Røkkr build for her imperial majesty. At the moment, I’m looking at something like this.
Hack is obviously to shut down Røkkr specials and Astra for the massive damage boost. The debating comes into play in her passives.
I’m eyeballing Heavy Blade, since it syncs well with her high ATK and helps mitigate the cooldown on Astra significantly with Spiral’s aid. However, at 33 SPD she’s unlikely to double. Because of this, I’m considering using LD4 and a HB seal instead of Brazen. This would put her up to over 40 SPD (my actual Edelgard is +1/+5 and S-Supported, not base), which would be more condusive to potentially doubling. Alternatively, I could stick with her Victorious Axe, but at the cost of not locking down their Special. With doubles and Spiral, El should be able to fire off Astra every engagement for massive damage (3 after Spiral, 1 after El, ready after counter for Astra on followup).
How would you all suggest I tweak her build to make her more effective against Røkkr bosses? Stick with HB4 for better defenses and easier special? Swap LD4 and HB seal for more frequent bombs? Scrap it all and do something else?
I’ll probably need healer/Eir support whichever way I build her.
