Armor March

Overview

One of only a few skills designed to help mobility, Armor March is restricted to Armor type units only, and appears in skill slot C, often considered lower priority than other slots. Armor march lets armored allies within two spaces of the skill user move two spaces instead of one. This grants them the same effective movement speed as infantry, but with armor’s higher stat total and access to class buffs. Armor teams tend to stick together, thanks to their powerful class buffs and power when receiving attacks. This makes Armor March both easy to use and effective within armor teams. Forest terrain will not hamper a unit under the effects of Armor March from moving two spaces.

Synergy

Naturally, as a skill that can only be used by armored units, Armor March’s synergies line up with those of Armor themselves. Despite Armored units typically being popular defensive units, Armor march gives them the movement range to initiate attacks. Brave weapon builds are much more viable with Armor March. Bold Fighter is an incredibly powerful Armor-only skill, and synergizes very well with Armor March by allowing units more opportunities to initiate combat. The primary benefits of this skill come in the form of expanding the movement and attack options of armor teams.

Weaknesses

It is difficult to deny the effects of Armor march to the team using it. As a C slot skill, Armor March has a relatively low opportunity cost compared to other skills. However by taking Armor March, they will be unable to take skills such as Hone/Fortify Armor. Armor March gives the user no actual combat ability, which can be problematic in some cases. Armor teams often turtle on defense squares, and in that regard, Armor March can be of little use depending on the map.
