Took some effort, but my newest tank is (mostly) done

Hes been a work in progress for a while. I sent away quite a number of manuals cough5star bridescough and did every blessed garden possible. But hes finally done. Pretty much. Flower will take awhile longer of course. And I havent decided if I want to swap his trait (I’m kinda eyeing res to do something crazy, but I know def is probably best).

He’s got 2 other link skills (atk/def and atk/spd). But I think skill-wise he’s solid. Unless anyone has suggestions?


I think that’s 41 resistance with his prf and Link active? But that 28 speed…

as a melee tank/retaliator, you have one of the best units in front of you.

but the speed is gonna reduce his tanking abilities in half, if you get what i mean. one hit vs two. one chance for a special vs two. the main issue i see here is that he has no way to manipulate his or his foe’s special counter, and no way to manipulate forced doubles. with a moonbow, mean that your 60 defense becomes 46, which is great, but not impossible to whoop. the resistance is fine enough, again, any magical nuke with AOE or moonbow will be a bad matchup for the guy. chill def and atk + shrines might be an issue unless you run him with a mila or other unit who’ll soak those.
i know the link synergizes reallly well with his weapon, but perhaps as a tank you can run guard and have your other units place in the link buffs.

I like Mordecai. He’s a good unit and squirrels!

Here’s my Mordy’s Arena build:

I still need to max his dragon flowers, but whatever. I find that it’s hard to salvage his Res, so it’s best to focus on his two good stats, Atk and Def. Everything in the build flows from that!

Here’s something you could try, but…

Maybe Lull Atk/Spd would be better, now that I’m looking at it.
