Should Azura be kept as a Singer?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the Growth Rates and Max Stats for Singer, and they look absolutely awful. Azura has decent mods (+3 Spd) and GR (60% Skl, 60% Spd), so it feels like a bit of a waste to keep her as a Singer.

Now, I know that utility characters are very important-- hell, I abused Olivia like she was set on fire and had to dance her flame off. But Azura joins on Chapter 6 in Hoshido and on Chapter 9 in Nohr. In comparison, Olivia joined in Chapter 11. Additionally, Azura is a main character; therefore, I'm assuming we have to use her as a unit quite often.

So, given her availability and necessary usage as a unit, is it worth it to keep her as a Singer? Her alternative base class is Pegasus Knight, and I don't think she does too badly as a Falcon Warrior...

Um, what's bad about 10 STR, 20 SKL, 20 SPD, 20 LUK growths? That's putting her at 60 STR/80 SKL/80 SPD/60 LUK, which is pretty redonkulus.

The only thing that Pegasi offers better is 20 RES; and in so doing you lose 10 SKL and 5 SPD. Falcoknight just adds 10 MAG to that.

Admittedly, Aqua is a huge glass cannon; but you're not going to fix that in a hurry unless she spouse-seals someone with Great Knight/Armor Knight access. Even then, best case scenario is 35% DEF, so honestly I'd say her DEF is pretty much a lost cause.

I also suspect that you need to be in the Singer Class to sing. It's not a skill; though there are skills that buff it.

This is like asking if Olivia should be a dancer.

... Yes.

Should be obvious, since Singer is your "dancer".

As a singer, she has incredible utility. As anything else, she's too squishy. She might make a decent Golden Kite Warrior or another ranged class through marriage (like perhaps Elite Ninja or Bow Knight) because then her awful HP and DEF don't matter. But I wouldn't sacrifice Singing for that.

Also, Akua starts with about 20 HP. At level 40 as a Singer, my Akua had 24. No way am I putting that on the front lines

It's even worse. She starts with 16 HP, and has a mere HP growth of 25%. She's far too squishy to be a front line fighter, even if you reclass her.

I guess the growths aren't that bad as I made them out to be, but I was just looking at some of the Max Stats, and it seemed like Singer's were very low.

And that freaked me out a lot, because I supposed that Azura had to participate in, say, every chapter for story reasons. And I know my Chrom ended up maxing out pretty quickly because of that mandate, and I was afraid Azura would suffer from max stat limitations if she stayed as a Singer.

Also, as you pointed out, I saw Azura's growth rates and immediately thought "glass cannon." Personally, I don't really approach a defensive tactic (unless I'm grinding), so it felt a bit wasteful for me to use her as merely a support unit. But if she's that squishy, I guess it makes sense to use her as a utility unit.

Thank you for the responses!

I mean, it only makes sense to class change her to at least one other class during gameplay, just to round out her list of available skills. Whether she ends up back as a Singer again is up to you.

Ah yeah, I know. I was referring more to end class, since I was worried about Max Stats.

I'll probably switch her into Falcon Knight for Rally Speed. If she's going to be used in the back, a rally skill wouldn't hurt.

And you plan to make her a Basara? Do you plan to marry her to Tsukuyomi for the Marriage Seal, then?

(Or are you going to rely on Buddy Seals instead?)

Just reclass her a couple of times. The singing isn't really all that important. Even though being able to move a second time during a turn can be very convenient, it's a frivolous luxury. I'm sure that, like Olivia, Azura will become an absolute monster after two or three class changes.

My Aqua is doing pretty good with 29 HP, 20 strength and 25 speed at level 23. squishy as hell but she can double quite a few enemies.
