This build aims to mimic the popular Distant Counter set of Reinhardt: Thunder's Sword. Though Reinhardt has the advantage of higher movement and resistance, Keaton possesses much higher attack, higher HP and defense, and increased damage on his special skill while transformed. Since Wolfskin Fang strikes twice on both player and enemy phase, frailer foes will think twice before initiating against him, even ranged foes thanks to Distant Counter. His infantry status also grants him access to Null C-Disrupt to prevent even users of Firesweep weapons or Dazzling Staff from initiating without consequence, though Null C-Disrupt is a skill that is rather difficult to come by. Vantage is a very good alternative, rendering Keaton nigh-unbeatable after he's already taken damage, except against the strongest of blue units. The C skill slot is flexible as always, with Defense Smoke as probably the first choice, but really anything works here. The S slot is similarly flexible: Fierce Stance increases the power of his counterattack even further, Attack +3 provides a smaller boost that works on both phases; Distant/Close Defense, Renewal, or Chill Attack further increase his survivability, and so on. Both the C and S slots are very flexible, so experiment to find what works for you.

Keaton really is just an infantry Swordhart. /s

This build attempts to give Keaton a strong yet affordable kit that requires no investment from any 5-star units while making sure to capitalize on his insane Attack to make him as effective as possible on the get-go regardless. Special thanks to Panne for making Def Smoke 3, a then event-locked skill, available for free at 4 stars!

What's amazing with Keaton is that not only he comes with a weapon that ensures him double attacks regardless of phase, but he also comes with Special Spiral 3.png Special Spiral 3 in his base kit which allows him to abuse specials like nobody else to absolutely annihilate anyone on his path.

In terms of specials, Icon Skill Special.png Ignis or Icon Skill Special.png Dragon Fang are the two options: Whichever you pick is up to preference and depending on the boosts Keaton receives in battle. With a +Atk asset and such a kit, both specials grant about the same additional damage on initiation without accounting for any exterior potential bonuses. Another option is an AoE skill such as Icon Skill Special.png Blazing Wind, which is sure to cripple the target and any neighboring foes thanks to Keaton's stat spread.

Keaton doesn't need Speed; what he needs is Attack to maximize the damage potential of his two hits. As a result, Death Blow 3.png Death Blow 3 is the much preferred A passive to increase his attack stat by +6 on initiation during combat.

Special Spiral 3.png Special Spiral 3 is just amazing - no explanation needed. There's no need to change it, and he needs it for quick special activation.

As always, there's no real set rule for the C passive, but Def Smoke 3.png Def Smoke 3 is a strong contender, as it allows Keaton to reduce the bulk of any neighboring foes so he can strike them harder if they initiate on him. Besides, Panne has it at 4 stars, so why not have your beloved wolfskin enjoy it for free? Really, though, as always, adjust the C passive depending on team composition.

Heavy Blade 3.png Heavy Blade 3 is the Sacred Seal of preference and what, when paired with Special Spiral 3.png Special Spiral 3 and Icon Skill Weapon.png Wolfskin Fang, allows him to fire his devastating Specials thanks to his immense Attack stat helping in lowering the Special cooldown. This way, he'll be able to fire his special every combat after the first.

Just protect your local wolfboy from mages and strong blues, okay?
