Should I fodder or merge Brave Ephraim?

After more than two years, I finally got a second copy of Brave Ephraim! And his traits are actually pretty good: +Def, -Spd! I would like to turn my first one into a combat manual (+Hp, -Res), but there’s one problem with that: I already refined his weapon a month ago because I didn’t get him in so long. Should I merge my old Brave Ephraim into the new one or should I take the loss of Divine Dew I spent?

You won’t lose the dew. Merging units adds their skills together so if one had brave axe + and the other had galeforce, the merged product will have both.


What I was talking about was merging so I wouldn’t lose the refine or turn the old one into a manual and lose the refine.

Ah… Yeah hell no, he doesn’t have good enough fodder to lose out on a guaranteed guaranteed follow up armored unit. Put it this way… Right now you’re 2/11 of the way to this:

You wanna go back down to 0/11?


My B!Ephraim is +1 and he is seriously putting such a good work that I think of giving him DC (Even if I already have B!Edelgard and L!Hector as a DC axe armored).

Even if his refine wasn’t as OP as B!Hector, it’s still very good : +5 spectrum stats, 7hp per hit and possibility of omni-breaker?
I regret foddering 2B!Ephraim now…

On a side note : he don’t need to have high merges before being good


I think it’s worth merging this one. There are more units out there with Special Fighter, most notably Nagi who you can snag DC off of as well.

And yet you voted fodder…

I miss clicked, wrote my comment, and forgot to change my vote :catcry:
I fixed it now

hum :feh_bigbeauty:

looks at my barracks

I’d say merge, yeah.

see +res boon
Going the mixed tank way? Where is the chad in you for the atk superboon?!

I run him in Arena, no need for a Superboon when he can hit 180 BST.

Also don’t underestimate 52/50 Mixed Bulk with Tiki supporting him. Especially when she also runs Rally Atk/Spd+ to bolster his stats to make up for it

And cuz 67 twice is usually plenty

Why being content with 67x2 when you can do 71x2?
I like being a chad :feh_rein:

He already does 78x2 thanks to Tiki buffs.

You could do 82x2 then!

But why would I make it easier to heal for 7 when I could heal for 14 per round instead

That Garm Refine is godly
