Boon

  • +SPD: Legault’s best boon. With +SPD , the Hurricane can reach an impressive base 41 Speed, allowing him to easily surpass 50 after skills. This blistering Speed allows Legault to guarantee follow-up attacks when initiating combat and avoid enemy follow-ups.

  • +ATK: +ATK supports Legault’s spectacular Speed stat nicely, as boosting his Attack will greatly improve Legault’s offensive prowess. Though not quite as much of an improvement as a Speed boon, an extra 3 Attack grants Legault a respectable offensive spread of 34/38.

Neutral

  • HP: HP is a reasonably useful stat on Legault, with base 39 allowing him to soak single attacks. The main reason to avoid a bane here is because Legault loses four points of HP instead of the usual three.

  • DEF: His Defense is best kept neutral, as Legault sports a decent enough base 24.  

Bane

  • -RES: Resistance is Legault’s “dump stat” and is the best choice for a bane.

  • Passive A: Swift Sparrow / Fury / Swift Strike
  • Passive B: Desperation
  • Passive C: Odd Atk Wave / Atk Tactic / Flexible
  • Sacred Seal: Attack +3 / Speed +3

This build aims to make Legault as effective as possible as an offensive hero, relying on damage from Moonbow to KO enemy heroes. With this complete build, Legault wields an impressive 50/47 in Attack and Speed when initiating combat, and an extra +6 Attack on odd-numbered turns. This is before considering the added damage from his Special skills.

The Lethal Carrot provides an additional +10 damage on Special, which plays an integral role in securing KOs against bulkier heroes, or those with just enough Speed to avoid follow-up attacks. Moonbow offers respectable damage on a short cooldown, allowing Legault to cycle through his Special skill quickly and maximize his damage output. Desperation allows Legault to avoid retaliation, though be warned that it may be difficult to have him reach this threshold without Ardent Sacrifice.

Wave skills are an expensive investment, but either Odd Atk Wave or Even Spd Wave would be Legault’s best C slot skill. Atk Tactic is still a great choice and is much more readily available, though will find no value on some teams. In these instances, the C slot is flexible. Attack +3 improves Legault’s offenses.

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred IV: +SPD / -RES
  • Weapon: The Cleaner (+Spd) / Barb Shuriken (+Spd)
  • Assist: Ardent Sacrifice / Reposition / Flexible
  • Special: Glimmer / Moonbow
  • Passive A: Swift Sparrow / Fury / Swift Strike
  • Passive B: Desperation
  • Passive C: Odd Atk Wave / Atk Tactic / Flexible
  • Sacred Seal: Attack +3 / Speed +3 / Quickened Pulse

The Cleaner is something of a niche weapon, as it only really performs well against heroes with class buffs. With that said, this weapon will circumvent defensive buffs with ease and demolish any enemy hero that has excessive buffs and cannot avoid Legault’s follow-up attacks. Barb Shuriken is a fine replacement for those looking for something a little more reliable and more accessible than the Lethal Carrot.

Swift Sparrow ensures that Legault is more effective in this role, though Fury is a passable alternative. Desperation is self-explanatory, whereas Odd Atk Wave is an expensive, but strong choice to improve Legault’s damage output. Atk Tactic is a serviceable alternative if it suits the team, otherwise this skill is flexible.

Introduction

Legault: The Hurricane is the fastest dagger user in the game as of the time of his release and also boasts a decent 31 Attack. This makes him a prime candidate for an offensive dagger user, as his high Speed allows Legault to ensure follow-up attacks and deal high burst damage through his Specials. Though he faces heavy competition from other dagger users with similar stat-lines, Legault can be a great choice for a ranged damage dealer.

Legault also has the advantage of possessing The Cleaner in his base skillset. This dagger adds the value of total bonuses from the enemy hero to Legault’s damage dealt, which greatly improves his KO potential against enemies that have been buffed. This makes Legault a reasonably strong counter to heroes with class buffs.

With that said, Legault is very frail, as to be expected from a thief. His HP is decent, but 24 Defense is mediocre at best, and 19 Resistance leaves a lot to be desired. Legault will be often survive a single attack, but any additional attacks will KO him with ease.

“My oh my... Fools aplenty. That includes me, too.”

Legault, Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade

Strengths

Impressive offensive stats

31/38 Attack and Speed is great and allows Legault to make consistent follow-up attacks with reasonable damage. Legault’s high Speed makes him a stellar offensive hero, with great dueling potential and a high ease of use with skills like Windsweep. 31 Attack, while not as good, is easily improved by skills and a range of daggers.

The Cleaner

The Cleaner is a new 12 might dagger that adds the total bonuses on a target foe to Legault’s Attack. This weapon should not be confused with the effect found on Blade tomes, as The Cleaner can be highly effective if Legault is faced with heavily buffed opponents. However, this weapon is still heavily countered by the Dull Ranged skill. Though this can be inherited by other heroes, Legault has the advantage of possessing this weapon in his base kit.

Access to powerful effective damage weapons

As a dagger wielder, Legault has access to a huge repertoire of effective damage dealing weapons, including the Poison Dagger and Kitty Paddle. This makes Legault an adaptable hero that can flesh out a team missing a counter for these types of hero.

Weaknesses

Reliant on buffs or Specials

31 Attack is by no means bad, but as a dagger hero, most of Legault’s KO potential will come from the added damage from The Cleaner or Special skills. Legault can still debuff enemy heroes while waiting for these conditions however.

Poor Resistance

Resistance is Legault’s greatest shortcoming: 19 base Resistance leaves him vulnerable to any mage that can ensure an attack against him, especially those with a tendency to run hyper-offensive builds like Ishtar, Olwen (WT), and Linde.

Team Options

Legault is a pretty flexible hero as a colourless dagger. Dancers can improve his ability to KO enemy heroes, whereas bulky tank heroes can cover for him.

  • Dancers: Any dancer can be a strong partner for Legault, and as a colourless hero, Legault is not reliant on specific dancers to patch up a triangle disadvantage. With that said, Bridal Ninian, Performing Azura, and New Year Azura are among the best choices.

  • Buff supports: Eirika and Ephraim are strong partners for Legault as they can improve his offensive stats through buffing. Other heroes can take on this role with Sacred Seals.

  • Tanks: Bulky heroes like Hector, Hector (LA), Fallen Hardin, Fallen Robin (M), Myrrh, Nowi, and Winter Tharja are among the best options to cover Legault’s frailty, but high Resistance heroes like Halloween Henry, Lyn (LA), and Micaiah are also great choices to specifically target Legault’s mage weakness.
Counters

Legault suffers the most against dragon heroes who can often retaliate at range as well as target his poor base 19 Resistance. Raven mages, while uncommon, will also tear through Legault with ease, and any other mage that can circumvent Legault’s Speed or overwhelm him with high Attack represent his greatest counters.

  • Dragons: Nowi, Corrin (F), and Adult Tiki can exploit Legault’s low Resistance to deal considerable damage. Legault struggles to engage against these heroes thanks to their ability to retaliate from 1-2 range, forcing him to leave these heroes to his teammates.

  • Raven mages: Robin (M), Robin (F), Lyon, and other common Raven tome wielders can dismantle Legault with ease.

  • Strong mages: Reinhardt, Ishtar,  Lyn (LA), Olwen (WT), Lilina, Sanaki, and other mages with high offensive power can all KO Legault.
