  • Valentine’s Mist is a somewhat generic member of the Green Tome cavalier lineup due to lacking a personal weapon or a particularly outstanding statline. Still, she’s quite capable of performing well in an offensive role.
  • As a Green tome unit, Mist’s options for inheritable weaponry are fairly limited compared to her blue and red tome counterparts. Still, she has a few standout options at her disposal, namely the Plegian Torch, which debuffs the foe’s Attack and Resistance and inflicts a further penalty on those stats equal to any penalties they currently have. With assistance from debuffers such as Arvis or an ally with Sabotage Res, Mist is capable of cutting down a large chunk of the foe’s Resistance, greatly increasing her damage output unless the foe has some form of damage reduction. Mist can also opt to utilize a bladetome, but keeping a full set of buffs without encountering some form of buff negation(Lull skills, Panic Ploy, Etc) is difficult.
  • Typical player phase A slot skills such as Swift Sparrow and Atk/Spd Push give Mist a large boost in offensive power, letting her pose a much greater threat during player phase.
  • Due to her low bulk, Desperation is one of Mist’s best B slot options as it allows her to Attack twice before the opponent can counter, potentially saving her from a hard hitting counterattack. She can also make use of Lull Spd/Res to boost her raw damage output further, however.
  • Finally, either Heavy Blade(faster specials) or a typical offensive sacred seal such as Atk/Spd Solo or Swift Sparrow both work well to enhance Mist’s offensive presence.

  • Despite her poor bulk, the Plegian Torch can grant Mist a significant amount of added durability in conjunction with allied debuffers such as Temari Eir and defensive skills, allowing her to take advantage of her good offenses in an Enemy Phase role.
  • Close Foil gives Mist the ability to counterattack physical foes at any range while giving her an Attack and Defense boost against them, although she has to watch out for dragons, since she cannot counterattack them with Close Foil, although she has a rather poor matchup against them regardless.
  • Lull Atk/Res gives Mist an even bigger stat swing in conjunction with the Plegian Torch, while also negating their Attack and Resistance buffs.
  • Pulse Smoke increases the special cooldown of her foe and foes within 2 spaces by 1 after combat, giving her some safety against users of precharged specials.
  • Finally, Solo seals augment Mist’s stats quite nicely as long as she isn’t adjacent to any allies.

Strengths

Good Offenses

While not outstanding compared to her peers, a 34/34 offensive statline gives Valentine’s Mist a good baseline for dealing damage, although performing follow-up attacks against the fastest foes will be difficult for her without additional investment in her Speed.

Cavalry

Mist also enjoys access to cavalry buffs and a wide attack range due to her status as a ranged cavalier, although cavalry buffs have more competition among C slot skills than they used to.

Weaknesses

Poor Bulk

Mist’s biggest flaw is her lack of bulk on either side, and without the aid of skills such as the Pleigian Torch or Lull Atk/Res, Mist will struggle to avoid being KO’d in a single blow by hits of any kind.
 

Unremarkable Compared To Her Competition

A flaw shared by many of her contemporaries, Valentine’s Mist is simply unable to compete with the likes of Summer Selena and Winter Bernadetta due to their exclusive weapons and superior statlines, although she can still perform well in her own right.
