  • Statistically, Tanith Is essentially a copy paste of the previously released Annand swapping Resistance for some Defense. As such, the two will run pretty much the same builds. The only notable difference between the two is availability: Tanith can be merged to +10 much more easily than Annand can due to her 4* status (But to be fair how many people do you know that actually +10’d Annand).
  • A Brave weapon coupled with an A slot skill and seal that let Tanith stack Attack and Speed give Tanith a reasonably high damage output thanks to her respectable base 36 Attack, and she’ll have no troubles quad attacking thanks to her high Speed. Tanith can also opt for other weapons such as an Instant Sword or Slaying Edge if Brave weapons aren’t your cup of tea.
  • Flow Refresh lets Tanith negate the foe’s follow-up prevention effects, ensuring that she can’t be prevented from performing follow-up attacks unless the foe can avoid them naturally. A Trace skill can let Tanith hit and run somewhat, but this is far more limited for fliers than cavaliers due to their lower movement. Chill Def is another decent option on a budget, although beware of foes with skills such as Atk/Def Unity can turn the penalties into buffs.

Strengths

Statline

Tanith’s statline is quite solid, of particular note is her great base 40 Speed and decent base 36 Attack, giving her a great offensive baseline. Her bulk isn’t too shabby either with base 32 Defense and base 28 Resistance, meaning she can usually take a hit from either side of the spectrum.

Weaknesses

Generic Sword Flier

Unfortunately, the only thing Tanith has over most other sword fliers is her statline and she lacks any notable traits to differentiate herself from the myriad of extremely powerful sword fliers available such as Legendary Ryoma and Elincia. At the very least, Tanith’s availability makes her a decent enough option for players to merge, since the power level of 3-4* available fliers is much lower at the time of writing.
