Ice Dragon Posted November 17, 2022 Share Posted November 17, 2022 5 minutes ago, DefyingFates said: Is this combo really her best, since HF doesn't give guaranteed follow-up or any sort of penalty/ bonus manipulation like other Fighter skills do? Ditto for DS only giving +5 Res and not any Guard effects. The sheer bulk that Hardy Fighter + Aegis gives Idunn in combination with the follow-up prevention on her weapon is enough that I don't think Bonus nullification or Guard are entirely necessary. With Aegis, if you can offload the Breath effect to a support effect, I think it's still better to run Deflect Magic before getting Bonus nullification or Guard. Idunn takes twice as much damage with Sacred Cowl compared to Aegis when paired with Hardy Fighter, so I do think it's worth running some kind of Bonus nullification or Guard on that build, especially since you don't need the Breath effect anymore. In this case, I'd probably prioritize one of the two effects, then Deflect Magic, then the other of the two effects. (Note that this is based more on gut feeling from my experience with Ascended Fjorm rather than actual numbers, so take it with a healthy grain of salt.) If you're looking for a more offensive build, it might be possible to run Sacred Cowl with the Quick Riposte Sacred Seal, though I'm not entirely sure how effective that actually will be. Regardless, it doesn't actually change the skill choices for the "permanent" skill slots. You might also be able to get away with running Distant Ferocity over Distant Stance, though that's more expensive. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
