  • Sue is functionally identical to Rath aside from her slightly higher Speed and slightly worse bulk, but significantly harder to obtain due to her 5* locked status.
  • Sue has a plethora of weapons available to her as a bow user, the most notable of which is the Spendthrift Bow, which gives her a massive boost to her Attack while debuffing the foe’s, at the cost of increasing her special cooldown by 2 after every combat. Sue can also make great use of other player phase bow options such as the Firesweep Bow(For avoiding counterattacks) and the Coral Bow(Greatly Debuffing the Enemy’s Speed and Defense).
  • Player Phase A slot skills such as Swift Sparrow and Atk/Spd Push improve Sue’s player phase performance greatly due to their potent offensive boosts. 
  • Lull Spd/Def is Sue’s best B slot option, bolstering her offensive prowess even further by reducing the foe’s Defense and Speed, reducing their bulk making them much easier to perform follow-up attacks against. 
  • Sue’s C slot skill is mainly up to user preference. Distant Guard is a decent choice for team support, but it can be replaced as desired.
  • Heavy Blade is a great option for Sue’s sacred seal slot as it allows her to circumvent the Spendthrift Bow’s main weakness provided the opponent lacks Guard, although without the Spendthrift Bow, Sue is unlikely to trigger Heavy Blade against most foes, so other Player Phase sacred seals such as Swift Sparrow and Death Blow would be preferable, although they can also be run with Spendthrift and a 2cd Special if special activations are not a concern.

Sacred Seal: Spd/Res Solo / Atk/Def Solo

  • In spite of her rather lackluster Defense and Resistance, Sue can take advantage of the Spendthrift Bow to perform decently well in an Enemy Phase role, as it grants her a substantial increase in durability due to its Attack debuff, especially in conjunction with Lull Atk/Spd or Lull Atk/Def.
  • Close Foil allows Sue to counterattack physical foes regardless of range while also giving her a sizeable boost to Attack and Defense if they initiate combat, functioning as a straight upgrade over Close Counter in most situations, as Close Counter’s only perk over Close Foil is the ability to counterattack dragons. If ranged foes are more of a concern, Sue can instead opt for Mirror Stance 3 for a sizeable boost to Attack and Resistance during Enemy Phase in addition to the Guard effect.
  • Pulse Smoke is a great option for many Enemy Phase units as it allows them to delay Enemy Specials, but it can be replaced as needed.
  • Finally, Atk/Def Solo and Spd/Res Solo are both great options for Sue’s’s sacred seal slot, granting her another substantial stat boost regardless of phase, provided she isn’t adjacent to any allies.

Strengths

Cavalry

Sue benefits greatly from her status as a ranged cavalier, gaining excellent movement and access to class exclusive buffs.

Good Offenses

Sue’s 32 base Attack and 38 Speed allows her to perform follow-up attacks easily while dealing reasonable damage, allowing her to perform well in an offensive role. Sue is further aided by the plethora of powerful inheritable bows available to her, such as the Spendthrift Bow.

Weaknesses

Lacking Defenses

While Sue’s poor defensive capabilities can be remedied to some extent with the Spendthrift Bow and skills such as Close Foil and Lull Atk/Spd, Sue will struggle to take more than one hit from almost any source, and will often be KO’d in a single blow if unmerged, and she requires heavy investment to perform reasonably well in an Enemy Phase role, although the Spendthrift Bow’s sheer bulk increase makes it possible, at the very least.

5 Star Locked Rath

Sue is essentially identical in function to Rath aside from Sue’s slight Speed lead and Rath’s slightly higher bulk, but she is significantly harder to acquire and merge, so using Rath over Sue for reasons other than bias can be difficult to justify. (This is coming from a guy who +10’d Sue though, so if you want to do it, do it. Just be prepared to spend a lot of orbs trying.)
