Legion's Axe+ A Fury 3
Reposition B Vantage 3
Moonbow C Threaten Spd 3
SP1,625S-

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: N/A
  • Weapon: Legion's Axe+
  • Assist: Reposition / Flexible
  • Special: Moonbow / Reprisal / Draconic Aura
  • A Slot: Fury 3 / Life and Death 3 / Attack +3
  • B Slot: Vantage 
  • C Slot: Threaten Speed / Threaten Defense

This set incorporates many skills from Legion's base kit while making him a competitive unit. Fury 3 in his base kit is a blessing, and bumps his base offensive stats to a whopping 39/38. Moonbow is pretty self-explanatory, but Reprisal is a decent skill that synergises well with Fury if SP or inheritance fodder is limited. Vantage allows Legion to stay in the fight for longer and pick up some extra kills, while also synergising well with Fury. The support and C slot skills are flexible. The overall SP cost varies, but if you only choose to inherit Vantage then you'll only need 525 SP.

Brave Axe+ A Life and Death 3
Ardent Sacrifice B Vantage 3
Dragon Fang C Threaten Spd 3
SP1,875S-

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: N/A
  • Weapon: Brave Axe+
  • Assist: Ardent Sacrifice / Reposition / Flexible
  • Special: Dragon Fang / Moonbow / Draconic Aura
  • A Slot: Life and Death 3 / Fury 3 / Attack +3
  • B Slot: Vantage 3 / Desperation 3
  • C Slot: Threaten Speed / Threaten Defense

Life and Death 3 cripples Legion's defensive stats, but places his base offensive stats at 41 and 40 in attack and speed respectively. A Brave Axe+ is therefore an obvious addition to his arsenal, allowing him to 2HKO a large number of units. Dragon Fang is the recommended special to take advantage of the extra attacks from the Brave Axe+, whereas the B slot skill is somewhat flexible. Vantage 3 allows Legion to pick off enemy units that have already been damaged, whereas Desperation can enable him to ORKO slower, bulkier units. Threaten Speed is highly recommended; especially alongside Desperation.

Introduction

Pros:

  • Fantastic offensive stat spread
  • Exclusive 14 might weapon that can revert buffs
  • Respectable HP stat
  • Can't be hindered by boon/bane

Cons:

  • Awful defenses for a melee unit
  • Cannot benefit from boon/bane

Legion is a powerhouse axe infantry unit with impressive offensive stats, a respectable HP stat but paper-thin defenses. Despite this shortcoming, his high HP and base 35 speed give him impressive survivability as he can avoid many follow-up attacks. This statline also makes him Fury a fantastic skill on him, as he can shrug off the 6 damage pretty easily. However, with poor defensive stats of 22 and 18 in defense and resistance respectively, Legion will struggle to survive more than one blow. Any enemy that can make two attacks against him will certainly KO him, making him a high-risk; high-reward unit.

Strengths

Legion's obvious strength is his phenomenal offensive statline. 36 attack and 35 speed make Legion an incredibly threatening unit, capable of ORKO'ing common blue units with ease. The one oddity about Legion's kit, ironically, is his unique weapon. Legion's Axe+ has 14 might - 1 short of a Silver Axe+, and carries an effect similar to Panic. Though Legion's poor defensive stats make this ability more difficult to use, it can be helpful in reverting powerful stat buffs from enemies; particularly against class type teams. For those looking to use Legion solely as an offensive unit, inheriting a Brave Axe+ allows him to capitalise on his monstrous attack stat.

Weaknesses

However, Legion's defensive stats are downright pitiful. 22 defense ensures that any enemy capable to make a second attack will KO him, and 18 resistance allows high attack mages like Sanaki and Lilina can OHKO him with the right support. Without support from the rest of his team, Legion will likely fall after a second attack from any enemy unit.

Team Options

Azura and Ninian are great partners for Legion, as they can check his weakness to red units whilst refreshing his turn, allowing him to tear through enemy teams. Other blue units with range such as Linde or Reinhardt can perform well alongside Legion.

Counters

The aforementioned red mages Sanaki and Lilina pose great threats to Legion. In addition, any red unit that can surpass his speed stat and make a follow-up attack will KO Legion with ease. 43 is the magic number if you're using Legion with Fury 3 as his A slot skill, so be wary of any unit that has this much speed.
