Supersonic Maniac
Click to show/hide build description 
With a +Speed forge on Legion's Axe, a Speed +3 seal, and Brazen Atk/Spd 3 active, an unmerged Legion will hit 48 effective speed before buffs. This in combination with an effective 57 attack and Desperation can make him a rather scary glass cannon. Threaten Spd 3 will help Legion to double more effectively. If he can survive a single combat, then you have a petrfying glass cannon who is surprisingly effective in both phases. Moonbow and Draconic Aura both serve different niches. Moonbow is for taking down tankier units like Hector or Effie more effectively, while Draconic Aura is a consistent 17 damage. Which one is better is entirely up to you.

With Life and Death 3 plus a +Speed Slaying Axe Legion

has a solid 55 atk and 46 Spd. This, coupled with a Heavy Blade seal will allow him to trigger specials with high cooldown counts rapidly which will capitalize on his offensive abilities. Galeforce also offers a mode of retreat for him, allowing him to get out of enemy range and avoid getting screwed over by his weak defensive qualities. This is a high investment build but it's great for making Legion a more self sufficient unit who doesn't need the help of a dancer or healer to protect him

for the enemy phase.

Slaying w/ Wrath
Click to show/hide build description 
Going into a full glass canon build, to make up with inability to have an IV aiding his already impressive offensive stats (hitting 55 Atk and 43 Spd before buffs), his standout HP (51 with this setup) among infantry axes allows him to stay alive reliably enough to get off his damage. Upon Player Phase Wrath activation, he can generally win in one round against most units with the exception of red dragons, swords, and armored axes without need for any essential ally support.

Ambush Panic Legion
Click to show/hide build description 
This is a build I came up with when trying to decide how to best use Legion's Axe+. It only applies Panic after he attacked, so he would still take full damage from any counter...unless he can't be countered. The basic idea of this build is for Legion to attack an enemy without being counterattacked, causing Panic to that enemy if it survives and to any nearby enemies, allowing your other team members to swoop in and wipe them out or alternatively take out select units and move Legion out of enemy range then repeat the process.

The Weapon is Legion's Axe+ with a Speed refine since he needs plenty of speed for this to work consistently.

The Assist is Reposition for mobility or Ardent Sacrifice for if you want to set up Brazen Atk/Spd without getting hit.

The Special is Moonbow due to the low cooldown since he won't be able to charge it well.

The A passive was tricky to decide. I decided on Brazen Atk/Spd 3 since it gives the highest bonus to his main stats at the cost of some health. Swift Sparrow 2 is another good option since he's a player phase character. Of course Death Blow 3 and Darting Blow 3 are good options as well for a more budget build or if you really need one stat boosted. Another option I considered was Flashing Blade to charge his special faster at the cost of not boosting his attack or speed.

The B passive is Windsweep 3 so that most melee units can't counter him, with Watersweep 3 being the backup for dragons and Close Counter magic users.

The C passive is Atk Smoke 3 to further lower attack of nearby enemies, though this one is fairly flexible. Another option is Panic Ploy 3 for if you want to make use of his high health to Panic further away, however it won't work well with the Brazen since he has to take a hit to his health for that.

The seal is Phantom Spd 3 in order to ensure the enemy won't be able to counterattack since it will activate due to Windsweep or Watersweep.
