A simple budget-conscious build. If you wish to use Sothe in a less offensive role and as more of a buff/debuff unit, you can opt for the Windsweep (available from Joshua at 4-star rarity) + Phantom Spd combo to deny DC units the opportunity to strike back. Otherwise, Desperation is a serviceable, albeit somewhat shaky, B skill option.

A somewhat different set that is used primarily for setting up kills, this works best with allies such as blade tome users or sword users who have low Atk.

Sothe's unique weapon, Icon Skill Weapon.png Peshkatz, has an amazing effect: it buffs all allies stats within 2 spaces by a total of 16 points after his attack. This buff is very valuable to bladetome users because it increases their overall damage by 16 points (32 if they double). Fast Green mages like Nino and Soren benefit greatly from this buff. The combination of Darting Blow 3.png Darting Blow 3 and Desperation 3.png Desperation 3 on mages can enable frequent double attacks, which increases the chance of a kill. Back to Sothe. Assist-wise, Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition is very useful and Icon Skill Assist.png Draw Back is also pretty good. Sothe's high attack for a thief (Assassin, Whisper, whatever) and Icon Skill Weapon.png Peshkatz high might allows him to use specials like Icon Skill Special.png Draconic Aura effectively. Icon Skill Special.png Moonbow is another notable option at a lower cooldown.

Sothe's Default A Passive Life and Death 3.png Life and Death 3 melds very well with his stats' construction. Just beware that his defense and Resistance become even more abysmal. Another option is Fury 3.png Fury 3, which is a good skill in many cases.

Sothe's B Passive really depends on what his A Passive is. Windsweep 3.png Windsweep 3 gives Sothe a free hit on anyone with distant counter (except manaketes). It allows him to buff his allies with impunity. Watersweep 3.png Watersweep 3 is useful against mages and Dragons.

Sothe's C Passive should always be Spur Atk Spd 2.png Spur Atk/Spd 2 because that adds an additional 6 points of damage to the BladeTome excluding the Atk buff.

Phantom Spd 3.png Phantom Spd 3 is the only choice for Sothe due to the Windsweep 3.png Windsweep 3/Watersweep 3.png Watersweep 3 combo.

Basically this is designed to make Sothe the first strike teammate. His unique dagger Peshkatz damages nearby enemies stats while boosting Sothe's own stats as well as nearby teammates'. By having him strike first, you give your other units a chance to either finish off the original target if they didn't already fall to Sothe's attack, or aggressively go after other enemies that may have proved troublesome otherwise. Poison strike further increases the ease of finishing off the original target (Particularly if that enemy was a heavy DEF + armored unit). The Double Savage Blow helps to drop the nearby enemies in a similar way to allow teammates to go in and knock them out. I recommend you pair this Sothe with at least one tank to act as a melee shield for him and either mounted units or ranged units to make it easier to reach those that fell victim to Sothe's First Strike.

Sothe takes a page from Brave Veronica's book and puts a powerful twist on it. While he lacks her healing utility, he makes up for it by being able to inherit Bonus Doubler, which has memetic synergy with Peshkatz and turns him into a bizarrely bulky attacker after initiation, something that would never have been considered for him due to his pathetic base defensive spread of 22/21. However, once he's attacked with Peshkatz, he essentially gains an effective defensive spread of 34/33 (40/39 if accounting Close Defense) until the end of his turn alongside an extremely oppressive effective 48/45 offensive spread, protecting him from many doubles and making him deceptively bulky.

IVs depend on whether you're aiming for arena score or not, but the flaw disappears after a merge anyways, so if you want to merge Sothe, literally any IV can go except +HP which isn't very useful for him in the first place. If he's not merged and you're planning to score in arena, avoid taking a flaw in HP as it is a superflaw and would lower his arena score. Here, offensive skills are put in priority as to further complement his already great base offensive spread. +Spd or +Atk are perfectly acceptable assets as a result.

Bonus Doubler is the core of this build, as this is what allows him to reach those absurd stats once he's hit something with Peshkatz. The only problem is that he has to give up the utility of Close Counter, which makes him more vulnerable to special activations from melee units. However, picking on Close Counter means he loses out on the increased bulk, and Sothe would generally want to try and initiate on melee units so he doesn't get counterattacked while his defenses are pathetically low.

Chill Def helps him scoring kills more easily, as he can struggle to even dent high-defense units before Peshkatz's buffs. Choice of C skill is, once more, up to the team composition, but his native Spur Atk/Spd works quite well in any situation. Close Defense as a Sacred Seal allows him to not die to death against melee units which would take advantage of his lack of Close Counter in this build.

Since he's meant to be played as defensive, Aether is here to allow him to sustain himself and provide further offensive support - after all, even with those extremely high defenses, he can still take a fair bit of damage from hyper-offensive units, especially Raven Tome-wielding ones.

Reposition is Reposition, Draw Back is Draw Back.

This set dies to Panic Ploy.

(That investment calculator is broken, by the way - the amount of investment for this build is as medium as Legendary Azura's stupidity of use in the meta.) (I fixed it. —Anon)
