Key stats worth increasing through nature if possible.

  • Attack and Speed are Rhajat’s two most useful stats. An attack boon will boost Rhajat’s already high attack further and allow for more damage dealt while a speed boon will increase Rhajat’s doubling potential.
  • Defense is Rhajat’s best bane. Rhajat’s poor defenses means she will not suffer much from lower defenses, making it the ideal option to reduce. A HP bane is also acceptable, meaning less HP is required to be lost in order to make use of skills such as Desperation.

  • Sacred Seal: Attack +3 / Speed +3 / Hardy Bearing

This set aims to capitalize on Rhajat’s default tome, the Keen Gronnwolf and turn her into a cavalry destroying machine.

With a attack boon and Fury 3, Rhajat reaches 53 attack. With this, she can KO every single cavalier in the game with the exception of Sigurd. Even double Distant Defence Xander cannot survive Rhajat’s attack, being unable to OHKO Rhajat and getting KO’d on her second attack. It is possible for Rhajat to ORKO Sigurd, but this requires her activating a area-of-effect special such as Blazing Wind or using Death Blow with Glimmer. If you plan to run a AoE special, you should also use the Hardy Bearing seal in order to avoid Vantage. You could also run Sturdy Blow which gives her a +4 boost to attack and defense which allows her to survive Xander’s counterattack should he survive her first attack. You can also use the boost negation forge for the Keen Gronnwolf in order to prevent cavaliers from utilizing Fortify Cavalry to protect themselves from your attack, though this is not completely necessary for the build to be effective.

For the rest of the build, Green Tomebreaker offers utility against some units other than cavalry, allowing her to ORKO Nino, Summer Elise and Sonya. Desperation could also be used for fighting slower DC units such as Hector. Threaten Res will also increase Rhajat’s damage output against anyone affected by it while her default Savage Blow will allow her to spread damage to surrounding enemies.

  • Sacred Seal: Speed +3 / Attack +3

Your standard Blade tome setup, allowing Rhajat to be extremely strong offensively.

With the Gronnblade, Rhajat’s attack power is boosted depending on how many buffs she has received from Hone and Fortify skills, allowing her to deal massive amounts of damage. Combined with a skill such as Swift Sparrow, Life and Death or Fury, Rhajat will become an offensive powerhouse. With Desperation thrown into the mix, Rhajat will be able to perform any follow-up’s immediately, meaning anyone she doubles will have to endure two powerful magic attacks before getting the chance to respond.

Combine this with a low cooldown special such as Moonbow or Glimmer and a attack or speed boost from the sacred seal and Rhajat will make quick work of most enemies she comes across. While Nino and Summer Elise made arguably better use of Gronnblade, Rhajat can still run it very well.

Introduction

Pros:

  • Strong offensive stats.
  • With her default tome, can deal with almost every cavalier.

Cons:

  • Poor defensive stats.
  • Faces heavy competition from other green tome units.

Rhajat enters the world of heroes as a strong green mage, carrying some strong stats and a good offensive stat spread. She also comes pre-packaged with some good skills such as the Keen Gronnwolf+ tome allowing her to be an extremely powerful anti-horse unit.

Rhajat possesses strong attack and speed. At 35 attack and 34 speed neutral, her offensive spread is quite good and she is capable of running an offensive blade setup if that is what you want. Unfortunately, the rest of her stats leave a lot to be desired. 21 defense and 24 resistance is poor on both ends, making her susceptible to both physical and magical attacks. Her HP of 36 is also not doing her any favors defensively.

Rhajat’s biggest problem though is her competition. As a green mage, she has to compete with the likes of Nino, Summer Elise, Julia, Deirdre and Sonya. Nino and Summer Elise in particular fulfil a similar niche to Rhajat as an offensive-oriented green mage and these two fill these roles better than Rhajat. This makes it hard to justify using her over other options if they are available.

Still though, Rhajat is not a bad unit. She’s a good green mage who’s unfortunately overshadowed by her competition. If you choose to use her and build her well, she’ll still be quite powerful on the battlefield.

Strengths

Strong Attack and Speed

Keen Gronnwolf allows her to be an extremely strong anti-cavalry unit

  • With Keen Gronnwolf and the right skills, Rhajat can potentially ORKO every cavalier in the game, Including Sigurd with the right setup and special activation.
  • When forging, you can forge the Keen Gronnwolf to ignore buffs on cavalry, meaning skills like Fortify Cavalry won’t save cavaliers from this tome.
Weaknesses

Poor on defence

  • At 21 defense and 24 resistance, Rhajat is poor defensively from both physical and magical attacks.
  • Reds and most green will deal with her relatively easier, with some blues being able to also KO her. Even Reinhardt with his common QP Death Blow Moonbow is able to KO her.

Faces heavy competition from similar units

  • Nino is the primary choice as an offensive green mage and Rhajat fails to stand out compared to her. Rhajat has 2 more attack but 2 less speed, meaning Nino offers greater doubling potential at the cost of a bit of damage.
  • Summer Elise is straight-up superior to Rhajat offensively, with her having 1 more attack. It’s only a slight advantage, but the advantage is there.
Team Options

Rhajat will struggle against many common red foes, both physical and magical. Having a teammate that can help support her against red units will be much appreciated.

  • Brave Lucina is a great choice as she will not only help protect Rhajat from red units but will also buff her speed in the process with her Drive Speed skill, making her stronger offensively.
  • With the weapon refinery, Nowi is now more powerful than ever. She will be able to handle almost any red easily with her DC and great defenses and can also act as a Brave Lyn counter.
  • Blue mages such as Reinhardt, Linde and Delthea will be great for handling reds as well. Unfortunately, Linde and Delthea cannot buff Rhajat with Dark Aura as mages do not get an attack boost from Dark Aura, though Delthea's Drive Attack skill will boost Rhajat's attack.

Rhajat will also enjoy the company of anyone who can support her in various ways.

  • Eirika and Ephraim are both great for stat-boosting and will serve as excellent partners to Rhajat if she has a blade tome equipped. Ephraim can also function as a red counter too.
  • Any dancer will be much appreciated as it’ll allow Rhajat to attack and then be danced so she can either retreat to safety or make a second attack.
Counters
  • Red units: Given Rhajat’s poor defenses, common red units such as Ayra, Mia, Ryoma and Ike will have little problem dealing with Rhajat. Red mages such as Celica and Katarina will also have little trouble given her poor resistance.

  • Archers: Fast, powerful archers such as Bride Cordelia and Innes will have little trouble fighting Rhajat. Rhajat can take a hit from Brave Lyn and KO in return if you’re welding her default tome, but Lyn with a Brave Bow will make short work of Rhajat.
