FE:W See the Shadow Dragon Characters in Action!

I’ve done recorded videos, showing off the Shadow Dragon characters. While Navarre and Minerva share movesets with Lyn and Camilla respectively, they do have unique specials, animations, and of course voiced lines and statlines.

For starters, Linde is very much her own beast, serving as a bit of a faster mage than Robin with huge Magic & Luck. Luck has been established as one of if not the best stats in the entire game thanks to the skills of Luna and Lethality. (I’ve even shown the effectiveness of this) Linde also has huge range and relentless attacks that don’t leave her nearly as open to attack as Robin can in some of his.

Navarre is considered by some to be the best overall character in the game. His statline features more Strength and Luck when compared to Lyn, but less defense, making him a statistically superior version of Lyn with all the same moves besides specials of course.

Minerva may share a moveset with Camilla, but her stats are quite a bit different, sacrificing all of her Magic and some Skill while she has more Luck and Strength. An efficient player should be able to make more effective use of Minerva, though Camilla can sport a unique Topsy-Turvy build, while Minerva performs a more traditional combat role although Camilla is still really good and well rounded along with her musou attacks being overall better with more skill and wider range as well.

Hope you enjoy!

    Yeah, when going through the DLC myself, I immediately noticed that these characters are better at standing on their own merit than Fates did by filling out the roster with unmounted lance users with a character dedicated to support (sorry Niles, I may have you as my system voice, but you’re not that good beyond your skill).

    I was honestly shocked at Linde having a unique moveset and Minerva doesn’t, but Linde’s moveset does wonders for her and Camilla’s was already rather good, so if it ain’t broke, it shouldn’t be fixed, I guess. Minerva has the highest strength in the game in addition to being a flier immune to bows (and Falchion, too!). She’s likely gonna be a dominant character from here on. Linde’s moveset and excellent magic make her do well in crowds. And anyone who has played Lyn long enough should know very well that Navarre being her with higher strength makes him already dominant.

    All in all, anyone looking for good characters to play with should get this DLC. This article is great!

    Whoever’s been designing these promotion costumes deserves a medal.
