Weapon: Starpoint Lance

Assist: Reposition

Special: Moonbow / Luna

Passive A: Fury 4 / Sturdy Impact / Atk/Spd Push 4

Passive B: Guard Bearing / Chill Atk/Spd

Passive C: Def Smoke / Pulse Smoke

Seal: Swift Sparrow / Death Blow

  • This build aims to shift Ingrid into more of a generalist than her base kit.
  • Her Starpoint Lance enables her to heal back the damage she takes from Fury and Atk/Spd Push in both phases, resulting in a net heal of 2 or 5 HP while keeping her topped up and within range for Atk/Spd Push to activate. If you do not have the tier 4 level of either skill, then keeping Sturdy Impact is likely a better choice.
  • Unlike Sturdy Impact, Fury and Push skills are active in both phases, just like Starpoint Lance, which allows Ingrid to be more flexible with her engagements. Atk/Def Push is also an option to boost her tanking potential.
  • Sturdy Impact should be kept if you are utilizing Ingrid in Aether Raids or Arena Defense, due to the difficulty that players have countering it.
  • Ingrid's Guard Bearing is only active in the Enemy Phase - still, it's an impactful skill and her Starpoint Lance healing makes it difficult for her to run more typical B slots, such as Vantage or Desperation. She can run a Chill skill, such as Chill Atk/Spd, but Guard Bearing will likely grant Ingrid more durability and mileage if she plans on tanking at all in the Enemy Phase.
  • Because Ingrid can brawl in both phases, she can utilize a Smoke skill, such as Def Smoke to weaken her opponents who may attack her during the Enemy Phase.

Show Explanation/Analysis

Weapon: Starpoint Lance

Assist: Reposition

Special: Moonbow

Passive A: Distant Counter / Distant Ward

Passive B: Guard Bearing

Passive C: Pulse Smoke / Atk Smoke

Seal: Iote's Shield / Atk Smoke

  • This build takes on a more defensive angle by utilizing Guard Bearing to its fullest potential and combining it with Distant Counter for an Enemy Phase build.
  • Distant Ward can also be used to counter mages only, if you would like to not run Iote's Shield in the seal slot.
  • Pulse Smoke and Atk Smoke are both incredibly useful - since Ingrid's Starpoint Lance is only active for her first combat, debuffing her foes to ease subsequent combats in the same turn becomes crucial. Atk Smoke can also be run on a seal slot, granting Ingrid room for double debuffing.
  • Like almost every flier who runs Distant Counter, Ingrid is stuck with Iote's Shield in her seal slot, unless she wants to become vulnerable to archers or neutralize Guard Bearing's damage mitigation.

Strengths

Strong Statline

Summer Ingrid has a very strong statline, even amid harsh competition from fellow Blue Lance Fliers. Her Speed is a blistering 42, while her Attack is a serviceable 34. She additionally has a mixed bulk, which can be important in high tier modes, and is fast enough that very few units in the game could naturally double her.

Excellent Generalist

While many units have to choose between Offensive or Defensive capabilities, Ingrid's dual-phase Starpoint Lance allows her to be flexible for your team, while her native B slot, Guard Bearing, further increases her tanking capability to make up for her lower defensive stats.

The combination of her Speed and her defensive skills and healing makes it very difficult to defeat Ingrid in a single combat, which can make her lethal on Defense teams.

Weaknesses

Flier Inheritance

While Guard Bearing is an excellent skill, Ingrid suffers from not being able to utilize a skill like Null Follow Up, which would guarantee her own doubles and shut down her opponents' skill-granted doubles - which are particularly lethal to her, given Guard Bearing's bonus stats are only in play for her initial hit. Despite all of her stat investment into Speed, Ingrid cannot protect herself against an opponent who runs a skill like Quick Riposte or Bold Fighter.

One and Done

Ingrid's base kit is designed to be used for a single combat per phase - Starpoint Lance only grants her additional stats and healing for her first combat in any given phase, while Guard Bearing only mitigates damage in the first hit in the Enemy Phase. Therefore, she is ill suited for a task such as omnitanking or Vantage tanking in Aether Raids, and loses effectiveness during Player Phase when she is refreshed via a Dancer or Galeforce.
