Mr. Clean
Stats: +Atk, +Spd/-Res
Click to show/hide build description 
Weapon: Icon Skill Weapon.png The Cleaner+ is Legault's default weapon. It inflicts a total of -7 to the defense and resistance stats on the enemy team after combat, levelling the playing field and leaving the enemy team wide open to future attacks.

Assist: Icon Skill Assist.png Draw Back is recommended for this build, as Legault, with his low defense and resistance, is extremely vulnerable to enemy attacks. Draw Back has the potential to get him out of enemy range, as well as his allies.

Special: Icon Skill Special.png Glimmer is the Special that Legault comes with by default: with his high base attack, he is able to easily rip through his enemies once it triggers. His high base speed allows him to double a majority of enemies as well, making Glimmer an excellent Special to have with its fast charge.

A Passive: Swift Strike 2.png Swift Strike 2 is Legault's A skill. Attacking upon initiation all but cements doubles for him, making it an excellent budget skill to have. Another budget option is Life and Death 3, as it increases Legault's lethality and ability to double.

B Passive: Desperation 3.png Desperation 3 is an option for Legault's B skill. His low defense and resistance means he will inevitably take extreme damage from enemies, further exemplified if his A skill is replaced with Life and Death. Once his HP is low enough, however, Desperation triggers, changing the attack order and allowing Legault to safely attack without fear of retaliation. Ultimately, this skill slot is flexible and can be replaced with whatever that the player needs.

C Passive: Atk Tactic 3.png Atk Tactic 3 is Legault's C skill. It provides an astounding +6 to surrounding allies' attack stat and, combined with his weapon, can quickly turn the tide of the battle, making him an excellent debuffer and support unit.

Sacred Seal: Attack Plus 3.png Attack +3 is an option for Legault's Seal, as it adds to his high base attack, increasing his lethality. Ultimately, this skill slot is flexible and can be replaced with whatever that the player needs.

Duck Hunt
Click to show/hide build description 
The best assassination weapon might not be what's particularly obvious - in this case, it happens to be something as simple as a rubber duck.

Legault pairs perfectly with the recently added Red-Hot Ducks, as at this point in the game he is the fastest dagger in the game. This, when paired with other skills, lets him maximize the duck's effectiveness and use his speed very well.

For his IVs, +Spd only makes sense, as he then starts at an incredible 41 Speed. Whether you minus Def or Res is up to you, though Res is recommended since it's lower. HP can also be taken if you want an easier time getting into Desperation range via Ardent Sacrifice, though note it's a superbane so it'll affect his arena score.

Naturally, for this set Legault should use the Red-Hot Ducks. A Spd refine helps give him even more speed, and on it's own already makes him incredibly fast.

For his Assist, Ardent Sacrifice is chosen so that, if he's able to, he can knock himself into range for Desperation to activate. Otherwise, a simple but effective Reposition works.

For his Special, one with a cooldown of 2 works well, as it'll activate quickly. Flashing Blade lets him use his speed to speed his Specials up, and he'll always get a 2 cooldown Special off on his second attack this way. Moonbow and Glimmer are recommended - which one you want depends on whether you think his targets will have less defense/more HP (Glimmer) or high defense (Moonbow).

For his A slot, you ideally want something that will boost both his Attack and Speed, to maximize his offensive potential. There's a few ways to go about doing this. Life and Death dumps his defenses entirely to give a huge +5 to his offenses. Swift Sparrow only activates when initiating combat, and it's a smaller boost, but it's safer since it doesn't hurt his already low defenses. If you don't think he'll ever see use before getting into Desperation range, or really trust his ability to take a hit, Brazen Atk/Spd works as well.

Desperation is the best B slot, since it lets him attack enemies safely. However, Chill Speed or Chill Defense can be used if you don't want to use that.

Legault's C slot is pretty open, but a Speed Wave or Threaten Spd works to help boost Legault and make him more self-reliant.

Flashing Blade is his best seal choice, since it lets him take advantage of his massive speed to fire off specials often. You can use Phantom Speed if you really want, but if he's sufficiently buffed/got enough debuffs on his opponents, this honestly isn't necessary or useful.

The Punisher

Legault's role was pretty much defined the moment his unique dagger's description was written: blade counter. As popular as blade tomes have become in arena, there was no solid way to counter them until now.

Icon Skill Weapon.png The Cleaner+ comes with Legault naturally, and is what his builds are centered around. It adds all bonuses on your target to his damage dealt, so each attack can feasibly take down some of these blade users with one hit, depending on how highly fortified/honed they are.

Icon Skill Special.png Glimmer is Legault's special by design and works insanely well with Icon Skill Weapon.png The Cleaner+. You want to focus on low charge specials anyway, considering Legault cannot take more than one hit in a row.

Death Blow 3.png Death Blow 3 is a good choice for him since this build is centered around single hits without retaliation. His Speed ought to be high enough to activate his next skill, but with bridal bonds still available Atk Spd Bond 3.png Atk/Spd Bond 3 is always a great choice, too.

Watersweep 3.png Watersweep 3 is a must. As a blade counter, you need to ensure he doesn't get hit, considering how highly buffed his targets will be. But in certain circumstances, the bonus damage awarded by Icon Skill Weapon.png The Cleaner+ will be enough to OHKO bladers (as most mages have low Def), so use your own discretion.

Atk Smoke 3.png Atk Smoke 3 is always a good bet, reducing the next enemy's damage potential.

Distant Def 3.png Distant Def 3 is the most effective seal for Legault, helping his survival potential on enemy phase. Combined with Atk Smoke 3.png Atk Smoke 3 he will stand a much better chance at making it to turn 2.

Hurricane of Debuffs
Click to show/hide build description 
A build that allows Legault to support and inflict mass debuffs while holding his own in combat. His weapon doesn't really matter, but you can keep The Cleaner to make sure your opponents won't be buffed for long. Starfish allows him a free desperation while being able to have a ruse skill in his B slot.

Swift Sparrow 3 works best to be able to hold his own, but if you're not willing to fodder off someone with it for him you don't have to, especially since Legault is more in the support role with this build. Any ruse skill works, and it is best to have the corresponding rally skill to go with it for an 11 stat difference on the rallied ally against the rused opponent. Atk and Spd Smoke are crucial to this build. Any enemy within 2 spaces of the attacked enemy suffers an all stat -7 debuff, incredibly crippling to pretty much anything. This build works on just about every dagger unit, but I chose Legault thanks to his amazing Spd and weapon, and he's one of my personal favorite characters. This build may be a bit disgusting, but hey, fighting dirty is Legault's thing. 18:52, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
