  • Kent’s a pretty typical player phase cavalier with a strong statline but no exclusive weapon to call his own, leaving him in the shadow of many other sword cavaliers such as Legendary Sigurd and Eliwood.
  • Player Phase swords such as the Instant Sword, Firesweep Sword, and Ninja Katana are all great options that compliment his naturally offense leaning statline, either by preventing the foe’s follow-up attacks when initiating, preventing counterattacks, or giving him a brave effect and extra Speed at the cost of Defenses respectively.
  • Kent’s A slot and seal are best used on stacking as much Attack and Speed as possible, so A slot skills such as Surge Sparrow and Atk/Spd Catch as well as sacred seals like Blade Session and Atk/Spd Solo are great options. Heavy Blade can also be used as Kent’s seal as he can trigger it easily thanks to his high Attack, and he appreciates the accelerated cooldown on his specials.
  • S/D Near Trace or a Flow skill are Kent’s best B slot options. Near Trace is more ideal for hit and run playstyles while Flow skills bypass follow-up negation effects, which he would normally struggle to play around.

Strengths

Great Statline

An obligatory upside of many new generic units, Kent’s statline features the typically bloated offensive stats you’d expect from newer units: 37 base Attack and 40 base Speed make him well suited for a player phase role, especially considering his Defenses are alright but not outstanding at base 30 Defense and 24 Resistance.

Weaknesses

One of the worst classes to be a generic in

Kent suffers from a world of competition due to his class type and is unable to stand out among the ocean of incredibly balanced sword cavaliers such as Legendary Nanna, Reginn, and the infamous Legendary Sigurd due to his lack of an exclusive weapon. His statline is not enough to offset the power difference their exclusive weapons provide, leaving him in a poor spot as far as sword cavaliers go. But hey, at least he isn’t Seth or a ranged flier!

Cavalry Effective Weaponry

Cavalry effective weapon users such as Micaiah can do a great job of ruining Kent’s day, and many of them hit hard enough to KO Kent in a single hit considering his middling defenses.
