What is Your Favorite 2 Skill Combination?

Recommended Posts

If you can choose any two skills that work well together for a unit what would your favorite combination be?

If you can, describe what unit would make the best use of those skills and what enemies the combination would be most effective against.

Assume that the other three skills are All Stats+2, Discipline, and Limit Break. (Yes, I realize not all units can get them)

Please don't use Rightful King as one of the skills....:(

If you would like, take a look at the Skill Combinations suggested by others in the

Your Recommended Skill Combinations section at the bottom of this post! (it's fairly lengthy as of now)

Here are some examples of Two Skill Combinations:

068.png052.png Lifetaker-Galeforce: Useful for any unit with high Attack and a good weapon; restores up to 100% HP

018.png012.png Pavise-Aegis: Useful for any unit with high skill (particularly those with poor defenses); gives extra durability

012.png030.png Aegis-Counter: Good for units with high Defense, Skill and HP; weakens effect of magic, bow, and dragonstone, while dealing back damage to (rng 1) sword, lance, axe, beaststone users.

025.png065.png Sol-Vengeance: Good for hard-hitting, but fragile, units (ie: Cordelia as Sorcerer); if Sol doesn't activate to heal, Vengeance should prevent an enemy counterattack from felling the unit at low HP.

I am particularly fond of the last one.

So, anyone have any ideas or strategies involving a pair of skills?

Edit: Your Recommended Skill Combinations (Anyone think ranking them is a good idea?)

I put links to the posts where there are reasons for using the skill combinations. If the skill pair was listed in a post but not explained, there won't be a link to a post.

Why the heck would I want to use Discipline

Anyway, I quite like Despoil + Galeforce for lots o' money. Who needs the Golden Gaffe anyway?

Paragon + Veteran, yeaaaaah DLC.

In seriousness, though, I like Galeforce + Lifetaker.

Luna + Astra - Completely impractical and there is no synergy, but I always let Stahl get those two skills in story mode.

checks the weapon your dude is equipping and grabs one of 056.png026.png058.png040.png066.png

your move

lol this could go on forever

  • 031.png + 079.png Used with a leif.png can give a good amount of money. Would only work on Inigo, though.

Despoil is redundant if Leif's Blade is already equipped.

Aversa can't get Tomefaire, as she doesn't have access to the Sage class.

My apologies, I forgot to look if the characters who know Shadowgift can learn Tomefaire. Corrected.

Counter/Vengeance

030.png&065.png

explanation: I jokingly call this combo "Love is Revenge". This combo isn't useful in the main game, or to the player at all really-- it's strictly a gag. But it punishes Range 1 Attackers oh so well. Simply put it causes any attacker (provided they don't kill on initiate) to take 1.5x+ the damage they dealt. Vengeance can easily hit 100% activation, and given the right circumstances this combo quickly becomes the death of the unwary. It was the theme of one of my more deadly streetpass teams-- for good reason. Adding in Miracle only increases its potency.

recommended for: Streetpass Teams

Rightful King + Lethality - I love this combo so much

Acrobat + Pass - On cavalry classes like Dark Knight/Paladin/Great Knight/Bow Knight

Lucky Seven + Quick Burn - Good dodge/hit

Aggressor + Dual Strike+ - Stronger support attack

Res+10 + Dual Guard+ - Higher Block against Magic

Pavise + Tomebreaker - Tanker

Iote's Shield + Swordbreaker - Remove weakness from Wyvern Lord

Swordfaire + Dual Support+ - With Sol Katti as swordmaster will ensure high chance critical from support.

Rally Heart + Rally Movement - +2 movement to all other units

Charm + Bond - Team boost

Veteran + Paragon - This counts?
