Key stats worth increasing through nature if possible.
Complementary stats that matter, but not to the point of picking them over key stats for nature increase.
Relatively worthless stat that can safely be decreased through nature.

Stahl will want to min-max his stats, taking a resistance bane for an HP or def boon. A speed boon will give him +4 and let him sit at 30 where he will avoid common doubles but can be safely dumped if using Quick Riposte.

Show Explanation/Analysis

A set that preserves his identity as a protective tank while increasing the amount of units he can counter. Stahl can keep his Ruby Sword and take Fury, giving him a very nice stat boost. Swordbreaker lets him duel effectively against faster sword users, improving his matchups significantly. Beware of faster swords with Swordbreaker, however! This set assumed that Stahl will be used on a cavalry team. If not, Threaten Atk is a better choice for his C slot skill. A great build for those with limited resources, but want to get the most of this unique red cavalier.

Show Explanation/Analysis

Stahl can tear through foes with a Slaying Edge, able to trigger Ignis within just one round of combat thanks to Quick Riposte and the Quickened Pulse seal. Fury is again the choice of A slot, giving Stahl a neutral 32 speed when combined with his weapon forge option. Reposition and Swap let Stahl swoop in to get allies out of danger, and Hone Cavalry provides powerful buffs to his mounted allies.

Introduction

Pre-inheritance, Stahl was not your typical red unit: Possessing high defense, low speed and a mount, Stahl fit the archetype of a defensive tank. Now he competes with Xander and Eldigan for the role. Those two dumped speed and resistance for more defense and benefit from a legendary weapon, outclassing Stahl. Nonetheless, Stahl is a reliable and steady unit, easily dealing with green enemies and providing a sturdy, mobile frontline thanks to his stats. With his large HP pool, below average resistance and a Ruby Sword, Stahl can at least take a single magical green hit.

Team Options

As a solid Hector counter, Stahl can find a place within Arena teams, but requires support to handle other threats. Paired with Nowi, the two can handle a large swathe of units. Stahl’s ability to swap team-mates to safety pairs well with offensive ranged units and brave weapon users: Kagero, Klein, Takumi, Ursula, Linde and Nino.

Counters

Stahl’s Ruby Sword+ allows blue units in general to be a solid counter to him, and even if you swap it out his threat list stays largely the same.

Although his defense is high, he loses battles against offensive red units such as Lucina, Young Tiki and Ryoma.

Non-green magic damage will destroy him. Reinhardt, Linde, Celica, and Robin(M) are some of his biggest threats.
