  • Coming into the game as “Valentine Owain but worse” due to losing 6 Spd in favor of a fairly useless boost to Res, Spring Luthier still has a decent enough statline to function as a standard player phase lance cavalier, helped by the wide array of weapons he has at his disposal such as the Springy Lance+, Slaying Lance+, Firesweep Lance+, or his innate Carrot-Tip Spear+.
  • The usual Atk and Spd boosting A slots are ideal to stack as much Atk and Spd on player phase as possible: the same goes for his Sacred Seal slot. As such skills such as Atk/Spd Push 4 and Atk/Spd Catch 4 (A slot) and Blade Session or Atk/Spd Solo (Sacred seal) are his best options.
  • S/D Near Trace allows Spring Luther to become a decent hit and run unit thanks to Canto +1, but Flow Guard and Flow Refresh allow him to negate follow-up prevention effects which would otherwise pose an issue for him. On a budget, Chill Def can be used instead of the aforementioned skills, but be wary of foes with skills that can turn debuffs into buffs, such as Fallen Ike’s Chaos Ragnell or Atk/Def Unity.

Strengths

Statline

Luthier’s statline is decent all around, although his most notable feature is his high base 38 Atk. Base 36 Spd is decent enough, and his defenses are typically sufficient to take at least one hit should he need to.

Weaknesses

Valentine Owain But Worse

Spring Luthier lacks any distinguishing qualities due to his lack of an exclusive weapon or skill, and as a result he’s rendered dead on arrival compared to the ocean of lance cavaliers with either superior statlines, exclusive skills, or both (Brave Eirika, Zeke, Ingrid). In particular, Luthier’s statline compared to Valentine Owain’s simply trades 6 Spd for a worthless Res boost, which is quite a sick joke from IS at Luthier’s expense. Alas, poor lance cavalier.
