Show Explanation/Analysis

Preferred IV: +ATK or +SPD or +DEF or +RES

  • The flexible nature of this set allows for Midori to perform well with a variety of different assets. 

Weapon: Short Bow+ (+Spd/Res) / Spendthrift Bow+ (+Spd/Res)

  • In addition to increasing her damage output, the +10 damage upon Special activation that Short Bow provides also boosts the amount healed when paired with a Special such as Noontime.
  • At the cost of a consistent Special activation, Midori’s innate Spendthrift Bow grants a massive bonus to both damage and survivability by boosting Midori’s Attack by 7 and inflicting -7 Attack on her opponent during combat.
  • Weapons are ideally refined to boost Midori’s Speed or Resistance. 

Assist: Reposition

Special: Sol / Noontime / Draconic Aura

  • Healing Specials such as Sol and Noontime are the most effective options for increasing Midori’s sustainability. Sol makes for a particularly effective option when paired with Special Spiral; following its initial activation, Midori will be able to activate her Special upon every single counterattack.
  • For a purely offensive choice, Draconic Aura follows the same rules as the aforementioned Sol when paired with Special Spiral by being active upon every single counterattack.

Passive A: Close Foil / Close Counter

  • Midori’s innate Close Foil makes for a fantastic Enemy Phase option by allowing her to retaliate against a much wider range of opponents as well as granting a significant boost to Atk/Def during combat.
  • If one feels that they need to be able to retaliate against dragons, they can also choose to swap in Close Counter at the cost of the bonuses to Atk/Def

Passive B: Special Spiral / Lull Atk/Def / Quick Riposte

  • Special Spiral can be very effective on an Enemy Phase build when paired with a 3 cooldown Special. Following the initial activation, Midori’s Special will be at a constant cooldown of 1 after combat, allowing her to activate her Special upon every single counterattack. 
  • Lull Atk/Def not only neutralizes the bonuses that her foes have in those given stats but also inflicts an additional -3 to each. This can be stacked with Spendthrift Bow for a colossal +10 bonus to you and -10 debuff to your opponent’s Attack.
  • If the aforementioned are unavailable, Quick Riposte is a nice and cheap option for better securing kills by guaranteeing a follow-up attack during the Enemy Phase when above 70% HP.

Passive C: Pulse Smoke / Atk Smoke / Def Smoke / Flexible

  • Smoke skills such as Pulse Smoke are very effective when taking on multiple opponents. Pulse Smoke is particularly effective in reducing the damage of opponents around the target after combat by slowing down the activation of their Special. However, a simple stat debuffer such as Atk Smoke also does well to accomplish this while Def Smoke allows Midori to deal additional damage to inflicted opponents. 

Sacred Seal: Mirror Stance / Distant Def / Quick Riposte

  • Both Mirror Stance and Distant Def make for solid defensive choices by granting a boost to key stats when initiated on.
  • If not already being utilized in the B slot, Quick Riposte can also be run in the Sacred Seal slot.

Alternate: Swift Sparrow 2

Show Explanation/Analysis

Preferred IV: +ATK or +SPD

  • Aside from receiving the significant damage boost that comes with an asset in Attack (which is particularly effective when using a Brave Bow), one may also choose to heavily invest into Midori’s Speed in order to even out her offensive statline. 

Weapon: Brave Bow+ / Slaying Bow+ (+Atk/Spd)

  • Brave Bow is the standout in pure damage dealing by capitalizing on Midori’s raw power and putting as much force as possible into a double attack.
  • A Slaying Bow refined for either Speed or Attack (only when used alongside an AOE Special such as Blazing Wind) can be a very strong alternative option for chaining together certain Specials. 

Assist: Reposition

Special: Luna / Moonbow / Blazing Wind 

  • Luna is a very strong and consistent damage-dealing Special against almost any opponent. At the cost of somewhat less damage, one can swap in Moonbow in place of Luna for a more frequent activation rate when not paired alongside Special Spiral. 
  • AOE Specials such as Blazing Wind can be incredibly powerful when combined with Special Spiral for constant massive damage before combat. 

Passive A: Death Blow / Sturdy Impact / Swift Sparrow / Atk/Spd Solo / Life and Death

  • Death Blow has all the raw power you need by granting the strongest possible boost to Attack on initiation while Sturdy Impact has the additional benefit of making it much easier to survive counterattacks by granting Midori a significant boost to her Atk and Def as well as preventing her opponent from doubling her in return.
  • Swift Sparrow and Atk/Spd Solo both make for strong alternative offensive options by giving Midori a massive boost to Attack and Speed under different conditions.
  • Despite coming at the cost of a significant hit to a unit’s overall bulk, Life and Death is the best choice when combined with an AOE Special, as their damage is calculated before combat based on visible stats rather than boosts received during combat.

Passive B: Special Spiral / Lull Atk/Def 

  • Once again, Special Spiral makes for a very strong offensive skill by allowing Midori to activate her Special at a constant rate following the initial activation.  
  • Similarly, Lull Atk/Def remains an effective choice of B slot by neutralizing foe’s bonuses and reducing their stats during combat.  

Passive C: Def Smoke / Joint Hone Atk / Flexible

  • Joint skill buffs such as Join Hone Atk greatly benefit both Faye as well as any adjacent allies by granting both a significant stat boost at the start of turn.
  • The C slot can otherwise be replaced as needed to suit the team. 

Sacred Seal: Heavy Blade / Swift Sparrow / Sturdy Blow

  • Heavy Blade makes use of Midori’s high Attack to accelerate the cooldown of her Specials. The use of this is essential for activating certain Specials in a single round of combat.
  • Swift Sparrow and Sturdy Blow further boost Midori’s offensive power by granting bonuses to key stats on initiation

Strengths

Colossal Strength 

There must be something special in Midori’s “medicine” when even the God of Strength himself falls short of this little girl’s monstrous 41(+) base Attack.

Infantry

Thanks to her status as an infantry unit, Midori gets to enjoy a wide variety of skills exclusive only to certain movement types such as Lull skills, Infantry Pulse, Special Spiral, etc...

Weaknesses

Poor Resistance

At a base value of 21, Midori’s Resistance is rather low and will cause her to take significant damage from magical enemies if unsupported.
