Taking a page out of Lewyn's book, this build seeks to shred targets with AoE procs from the second round of combat onwards. Once Ishtar is in Icon Class Blue Tome.png Juicy Wave+'s range and has entered into combat at least once, she basically unleashes 3 devastating, consecutive strikes onto the opponent.

In the first combat, Flashing Blade 4.png Flashing Blade 4 should ideally proc, charging Icon Skill Special.png Blazing Wind from 4 to 2 on the first hit, and 2 to fully charged on the second; in every subsequent combat, Blazing Wind procs before combat, and its charge goes from 4 to at most 2 if Flashing Blade 4 procs (and Guard 3 does not), allowing Special Spiral 3.png Special Spiral 3 to bring the charge back from 2 to fully charged once more.

Unlike Lewyn, Ishtar needs to lose HP to proc the weapon's Desperation 3 effect, so Fury 4.png Fury 4 is preferred to more safely get into the low HP range. However, if Ishtar is running Icon Skill Assist.png Reciprocal Aid, then she can forgo Fury 4 for the stronger but more dangerous Life and Death 3.png Life and Death 3. The reason why these skills are used instead of, for example, Swift Sparrow 3 is that AoE specials take into account only visible Atk, not invisible combat buffs.

This Ishtar is specifically meant to be run in Infantry Emblem with at least 2 users of Infantry Pulse 3.png Infantry Pulse 3 or a mixed team with Ostias Pulse.png Ostia's Pulse and Infantry Pulse. This means that Ishtar will have a Blazing special ready on turn 1, and after using it once, she will automatically regain the special thanks to Special Spiral 3.png Special Spiral 3 and a single finishing attack. Odd Atk Wave makes Ishtar especially powerful with this combo, and more flexibility is available if additional Pulse users are on your team.
