  • Arthur joins the ever growing club of shafted units in Fire Emblem Heroes as a generic infantry green tome user with a good statline and fodder but not much else.
  • Arthur’s Innate Gronnvulture as well as Gronnblade and Snow Globe are his best inheritable green tome options. Gronnvulture gives him a powerful debuff that can be made even more effective by debuffing foes, Gronnblade gives Arthur great damage potential provided he is fully buffed and the Snow Globe gives him a welcome resistance to debuffs, although it comes with the drawback of needing an ally within two spaces to gain its effects.
  • Atk/Spd Boosting A slots such as Arthur’s innate Atk/Spd Ideal are his best options for stacking as much Attack and Speed as possible for player phase damage output. For the same reason, he’ll want sacred seals such as Blade Session and Atk/Spd Solo to increase his damage output further.
  • Null Follow-Up and Lull Spd/Res are both good B slot options, Null Follow-Up to prevent Arthur’s follow-up attacks from being shut down by follow-up negation skills from the likes of Brave Hector, and Lull Spd/Res to increase Arthur’s damage output and disable the foe’s Speed and Resistance buffs.
  • Joint Drive Atk is a generally solid C slot option, but Arthur’s innate Spd/Res Menace is a good choice as well. The skill used in this slot is primarily up to player preference.

Strengths

Strong Statline

Arthur’s base 42 Attack and 41 Speed are exactly what you’d expect from a new unit, giving him great damage potential right off the bat. His physical bulk is also respectable, meaning he can usually take physical hits reasonably well.

Weaknesses

Terrible Resistance

Arthur’s terrible Resistance ironically makes him easy prey for other magic users and adaptive damage dragons. It’s not uncommon to see him KO’d in a single hit by many of the extremely hard-hitting magic users present in the game regardless of color, such as Winter Lysithea and Ascended Ishtar.

Lacks an Exclusive Weapon

Arthur’s lack of an exclusive weapon means he has no way to distinguish himself from other green tome users with exclusive weaponry aside from raw stats, dooming him to be powercrept like so many others before him until he gets an exclusive weapon in 2035.
