Key stats worth increasing through nature if possible.
Complementary stats that matter, but not to the point of picking them over key stats for nature increase.
Relatively worthless stat that can safely be decreased through nature.

  • Corrin’s Yato effect weapon is unique in the sense that it grants a visible stat boost to all stats. This can potentially allow Corrin to be the soaker of Chills and the Shrines in Aether Raids Offense as those skills/structure targets the enemy with the highest visible stat on the opponent team. 
  • The player can choose to run visible stat-boosting Passive A in order to exceed the unit that he is supporting. Fury provides the most all-rounded stat boost, while Life and Death and Still Water provide a more targeted stat boost to potentially outmatch the units they wish to support. R Duel Infantry provides a slightly small all-rounded boost, but it has an additional HP + 5 that could be used to meet HP checks from skills such as Even Pulse Tie and Sudden Panic. If required, Corrin can also run stat boosting seal such as Fury if one needs more visible stats to soak the debuffs.
  • The rest of the kit simply focuses on his ability to provide support in another manner. If Corrin is used in conjunction with an Infantry tank, Corrin can use the new Inf. Null Follow to provide his partner with Null Follow-Up, which opens up the Passive B for the tank in favor of damage reduction skills such as Spurn, or other utility skills such as Null C-Disrupt, Lulls or even the new Bulwark skills. Alternatively, any in-combat support such as the likes of Joint Drives and the Guard skills can also be used. Lastly, Save balls can also opt for Spurs, and unless your Far and Near Save unit are literally the same unit, Yato only works on one ally.

  • Due to being an Infantry, Corrin can also be used as a makeshift melee specialist due to having abundant choices in terms of the Passive B slot. However, compared to modern weapons, Yato might lack the combat boost required to perform in the meta. A player can probably replace his weapon with generics such as Coral Saber should a player want to focus on his combat rather than his stat-boosting utility for his Far Save unit, although that would not make him that much different compared to other melee specialists.
  • The rest of the kit is primarily focused on being a melee specialist by doubling the foe and taking the foe out with an Ignis activation. Corrin would need to juggle between cooldown acceleration, having enough DEF to take hits and having enough SPD to double the opponent.



Support wise, Yato is faring not too badly for a support weapon by granting his support partner significant stat support. The flat stat boosts from Yato can also be used to divert Chills away from his allies. 

Infantry Perks

Corrin being an Infantry unit means he can access an assortment of Passives, ranging from combat options such as Null Follow-Up and Time’s Pulse, or support options such as Sudden Panic, Even Pulse Tie, and Infantry Pulse.

High HP

Corrin’s HP stat does allow him to leverage skills that rely on HP checks, such as Even Pulse Tie and Sudden Panic. Corrin is also likely to be immune to such effects as well.



Ally Support Reliance

Corrin's whole gimmick relies on ally support. This meant that should the ally-supported unit get taken out, Corrin’s weapon is effectively neutered. Furthermore, this also meant that Corrin’s weapon only works on a single ally, which does somewhat pale in comparison to modern-day stat supports.

Old Unit Woes

Older units tend to have rather unoptimized stat distribution, and the same could be said for Corrin. Even with the resplendent Corrin’s stat distribution is awkward at best. Furthermore, even though Yato’s support is adequate, he lacks any combat effects outside of the flat stat boost. The combination of these factors does hamper his combat potential to a relatively large extent.
