Fire Boost 3 is a better Death Blow, as long as you can stay healthy and have a chunky base HP. What this Eliwood is designed to do is go solo, as all parts of his kit feed into each other: Fire Boost puts him to a whopping 52 Attack with Brave Lance equipped and no Hone, Goad or Drive skill boosts applying. This thus turns on Heavy Blade, making Aether effectively a 3-charge special (as Eliwood's hits count twice). Even though it won't proc in a single round of combat, this means that the first thing that attacks him on the enemy phase gets a Fire-Boosted Aether right in the face - which should buy back most of his lost HP in one fell swoop ready for the player phase, allowing him to keep sustaining and attacking without concern.


Quick Riposte is included for when he gets hit by multiple people at once; the first eats Aether which should put Eliwood back into QR range and Fire Boost range, so he Ripostes - and since he's likely to get doubled with his mediocre speed weighed down by Brave Lance+, he'll have Aether ready on the player phase! Vengeful Fighter doesn't stack with Heavy Blade and is seasonal-locked, but works as the Rolls-Royce expensive version. Vengeful Eliwood can go in a completely different direction, using Armored Boots seal to keep up with a mixed team and swapping Brave Lance+ out for Slaying Lance+ with a defense refinement to mitigate his losses, preserving the soloing style.


This build works best when Eliwood is extremely mobile, so either with Armour March or with a cavalry ally with Reposition to hurl him into the thick of things. At that point, all that's needed is for you to watch and wait as the Lord of Pherae demolishes entire squads by himself!

YOU SHALL NOT PASS

With this build, Eliwood becomes a top tier lance unit competing with Christmas Robin, Hardin, and Effie for the best lance unit in the game and potentially the best free to play unit in the game. Eliwood benefits greatly from Ward armor buffs since with the Defense +3 seal and the Resistance Refine for Casa Blanca+ giving him potentially 45 Resistance and 44 Defense making him an extremely good tank. This combine with Distant Counter and Quick Reposte makes it so he can do very well against mages and archers especially against Brave Lyn and Rienhardt. Aether also helps Eliwood as it allows him to be able to kill any unit that has low defense that tries to attack him since he will constantly be at full HP due to him healing, it doesn't even matter if you have Heavy Blade or not. Despite this being a high investment, it is worth it if you want a stellar Armor Emblem Team and have had bad luck trying to get Christmas Robin and Hardin.

Love On The Cheap

Taking advantage of a sky-high base attack stat and the HP to make good use of Fire Boost 3, this is a simple set of skill inheritance improvements to his base kit to allow you to comfortably auto-battle Hard-5 in Tempest Trials and earn you thousands of points.


We keep the basic weapon owing to its solid base might, though the refinement is flexible. Speed would keep him very safe from being doubled by most of the non-speedster enemies faced, while Defense or Resistance cuts down on the damage he takes while in combat. The Armored Boots seal he comes with is perfect for him, allowing him to act just like an infantry lancer except with a pile more stats, letting him accompany his teammates. His assist can be kept to let him boost the other physical ally on the team when needed, but for autobattle purposes and how the AI works, it may just be better to unequip it so the Lord of Pherae prioritises battle, as he should.


Fire Boost 3 enjoys the HP increase from a refined weapon, and can easily be kept. Luna more or less ensures the kill whenever it triggers, even against green units. Renewal is the immediately obvious option for his B-slot, letting you heal repeatedly across turns and stages in Tempest Trials and keeping him in the range of Fire Boost 3 and Armored Boots. Finally, his C-slot is a flexible space, letting you either go with a buffing skill to aid his allies in their designated matchups or a threaten skill to guarantee a kill when needed.

This build is intended for Eliwood to tank everything. With the Res refine and Distant Defense 3 seal, he can survive a fully built, fully merged QP Moonbow Reinhardt. He has the ability to survive any build of any ranged cavalier, in addition to the sword cavaliers. Goad Armor was previously exclusive to Hector, but Eliwood can now provide that support to an armored team. Vengeful fighter gives up some survivability, but gives a large amount of kill potential.
