  • As is the case with many modern infantry swords, Priam is blessed with an excellent statline and a stacked base kit, but his exclusive ragnell is incredibly lacking compared to the insanity that is Chaos Ragnell or the generally good Refined Ragnell. Still, as an innate DC weapon it gives Priam a free A slot which he can take plenty of advantage of, and free stats for existing is always a plus.
  • Null Follow-Up is pivotal in modern Feh due to the sheer amount of automatic follow up weapons and skills in the game. And as a nice bonus Priam has it in his base kit, meaning one doesn’t have to go out of their way to inherit it.
  • Unity and Stance skills are the best option for Priam’s free A slot, which one is picked depends on whether debuff mitigation or the Guard effect is more desired. Priam’s innate Atk/Def Ideal can also be used if there are no alternatives available.
  • The Steady Breath seal gives Priam much faster access to his specials during enemy phase, in particular making Ignis trigger after two attacks and Noontime trigger instantly when he’s attacked. Other Defensive sacred seals such as Mystic Boost and Mirror Stance can be used in it’s place if another unit on his team is using the seal, however.

Are you sure he isn’t just a random hobo? (Spurn)

  • Priam has enough Speed to function decently well as a Spurn tank, but such a build sacrifices Null Follow-Up on him due to him lacking the effect in his weapon, which can cause issues against foes that can either prevent follow-up attacks or guarantee their own(And a lot of the time both). Close Call is functionally the same as Spurn for the purposes of this build aside from losing a bit of special damage, so it can be a decent substitute if Spurn is unavailable.
  • Priam will still want Stance 3 or a Unity skill for the Guard effect or debuff mitigation respectively, although he’ll want to stack as much Speed as possible to take full advantage of his B slot’s damage reduction. The same goes for his choice of seal and whether one wants more raw stats or the ability to charge specials more quickly.

Strengths

Statline

Priam is gifted with the obligatory new gen Infantry sword statline, and it lacks any major weak spots aside from his middling Resistance.

Ancient Ragnell

Priam’s Ancient Ragnell is essentially an Inbuilt Distant Counter weapon with free stats on top, giving him a great deal of flexibility with the skills he runs.

Weaknesses

Middling Resistance

Priam joins many in the ranks of the “Magic makes me cry” club. While base 26 Resistance isn’t horrible, it makes his matchups with hard hitting magic users more difficult without additional investment into his Resistance or the aid of damage reduction.
