Sacred Seal: Mystic Boost / Steady Breath / Close Def / Sturdy Stance / Atk/Def Form

  • Mamori is a decent candidate for a Near Save unit thanks to her excellent Defense and her exclusive weapon, which prevents the foe’s follow-up attacks in addition to giving her a +6 boost to her Defense and Resistance as long as she’s within 2 spaces of an ally.
  • Mamori will want a combination of a Fighter skill and an A slot to suit her needs: A Unity skill and Crafty Fighter or Sturdy Stance 3 alongside Slick Fighter both accomplish similar things for her. Both give her some form of debuff neutralization and automatic follow-up attack during the enemy phase. One can also opt for Wily Fighter or Close Def 4 in Mamori’s A or B slot respectively if buff negation is desired.
  • Savior skills are incredible, letting Mamori essentially void an ally unit’s worst matchups by forcing them into combat with her instead: And she gets a stat boost on top of that as a cherry on top. Which Near Save she uses isn’t terribly important: What matters is that she has one.
  • For Mamori’s sacred seal slot, Steady Breath is an excellent choice as it allows her to easily trigger her Special after a single hit (or two hits in the case of Ignis). Mystic Boost can also be useful for post combat healing, although otherwise her best options are the typical Enemy Phase stat boosting seals such as Close Def and Sturdy Stance.

Strengths

Mirage Axe

Mamori’s exclusive weapon has aged decently well, having a fairly simple activation requirement while giving her a substantial boost to her Defenses in addition to follow-up negation.

Good Statline

Base 37 Attack and 42 Defense give Mamori a great baseline stat spread for a Near Save unit, and her base 33 Resistance isnt too shabby either.

Armored

As an armored unit Mamori benefits from access to the incredibly powerful Fighter skills, and the arguably even more overpowered Savior skills. It’s hard to be bad when you’re an Armor.

Weaknesses

Armor Effective Weaponry

Armor effective weapons can easily shred chunks of Mamori’s HP even if they don’t KO her outright, although she can tank physical armorslaying weapons to a degree thanks to her high Defense.

Low Speed / Null Follow-Up

Mamori’s low Speed means she’s completely reliant on her weapon’s effect to not fall prey to enemy follow-up attacks, and any unit with a guaranteed follow-up attack effect will negate her Mirage Axe’s effect and almost certainly get a natural follow-up attack against her. Null Follow-Up takes this a step further and shuts down both Mamori’s exclusive weapon and her follow-up-granting B slot skills all in one go. This makes units with Null Follow-Up difficult for Mamori to deal with, especially if they have Speed-based damage reduction skills: given her low Speed, they’re nearly guaranteed to get the full 40% damage reduction.
