Luna. A mercenary of Nohr; Camilla’s subordinate. Her origins and past are a complete mystery. An exceptionally sore loser, but also a hard-working genius who tries hard to match her talent. She also has a friendly side, which often catches her companions off-guard. The biggest squanderer.

[spoiler=Marriage/Buddy Seals]
Spoiler (Marriage/Buddy Seals)

A Marriage/Buddy seal allows a unit to reclass into one of the select class trees of his spouse (S support) or buddy (A+ support). A unit may only achieve an S support with units of the opposite gender (exc. Kamui, Syalla, Zero), and may only achieve an A+ support with units of the same gender.

(The credit for the following information goes to Gayserbeam, as I copied the wording of his explanation. Check out the Class Changing and Inheritance Thread for more information.

  • If the users Primary Class is different than their Spouses/Buddy's Primary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddy's Primary Class, even if the user has that class as a Secondary Class already.
  • If the users Primary Class is the same as their Spouses/Buddy's Primary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddy's Secondary Class.
  • If the user is married or buddied with a unit who has an unlearnable class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddy's Secondary Class.
    • An unlearnable class is a class that may be unique to a character or their children. The following units have unlearnable classes: Nishiki (Fox Spirit), Flannel (Garou), Azura (Singer), Mozume (Villager).
  • If the user is married or buddied with a unit who has an unlearnable class, and their Primary Class is the same as their Spouses/Buddy's Secondary Class, then the Marriage/Buddy Seal will reclass them to the Spouses/Buddy's Substitute Class.
    • A Substitute Class is simply a select class a character with an unlearnable class passes down under certain circumstances. The following units have Substitute Classes: Nishiki (Herb Merchant), Flannel (Outlaw), Azura (Rod Knight), Mozume (Herb Merchant).


If you're still confused, let me use Luna as an example to try and clarify matters!

  • Luna/Zero: Luna's Primary Class is Mercenary, and Zero's is Outlaw. Therefore, Luna would Marriage Seal into Outlaw.
    • Luna/Subaki: Luna's Primary Class is Mercenary, and Subaki's is Pegasus Warrior. Therefore, Luna would Buddy Seal into Pegasus Warrior. As Luna's Secondary Class is Pegasus Warrior, he would not receive a new class tree from Subaki.
  • Luna/Lazward: Luna's Primary Class is Mercenary, and Lazward's is Mercenary. Therefore, Luna would Marriage Seal into Lazward's Secondary Class-- Ninja.
  • Luna/Flannel: As Flannel's Primary Class is Garou, an unlearnable class, Luna would Marriage Seal into his Secondary Class-- Fighter.
  • Luna/Mercenary!Avatar: Avatar's Primary Class is Nohr Prince, an unlearnable class. Luna's Primary Class is Mercenary, and Avatar's Secondary Class is Mercenary. Therefore, Luna would Marriage Seal into his Substitute Class-- Samurai.

Hero is +3 Str on promo and 45 growth for her. BK is +1 on promo and 40 growth for her. It's odd to say BK can ORKO what Hero can't, unless we are talking about fliers or something. Bows and Axes are also functionally identical with regards to the weapon triangle, so it's not a weapon triangle issue either.

Of cause I am talking about fliers.

Without hitting weakness, Luna cannot be a reliable attacker even as Brave Hero.

If we do need Luna to attack, what she can do is to attack with a powerful partner in Attack Stance, after that the partner will move and one-shot the enemy. Or we can do it in the opposite order so Luna will have the kill.

+2 Str won't make an obvious change, since Bow Knight has better positions for Attack Stance.

However, both Hero and BK are bad in this case.

BK is a bad attacker but sometimes can be good, and it is always a good supporter.

Hero is bad forever.
