Notable Weapons (might):
• Iron Sword (6)
• Steel Sword (8)
• Wo Dao (9)
• Wo Dao+ (13)
Karel slaughtered his family to obtain the Wo Dao. It is a light sword with a high crit rate. In Fire Emblem Heroes, it can grant +10 damage to his Special Skill.
Retribution is the same Special Skill of Takumi, Tharja, Narcian, and Kagero. Reprisal is the same as Kagero. The first skill has a 3 cooldown and the latter only has 2. These moves can grant 30% more to damage dealt from damage suffered.
• Defiant Attack (1/2/3)
Same Passive Skill as Lyn, Ryoma, and Tiki (Young). This skill can give him an additional ATK (+3/+5/+7) if his HP is equal or less than 50%.
• Desperation (1/2/3)
This skill can grant Karel a follow-up attack if his HP is (≤ 25% / ≤ 50% / ≤ 75%). This follow-up attack occurs right after his attack.
Karel | Final Evaluation:
Karel is not called the Sword Demon for nothing. His ATK, SPD, HP can match top notch SS-Rank units. Although he is low on DEF and RES, he can KO an enemy in no time. He is capable of doing a follow-up attack once his Desperation 3 is enabled. This means he can do another attack right after his attack (no additional turn, just additional attack). His Reprisal’s cooldown is only 2. If combined with Wo Dao+ that can do +10 damage, this is totally OP. Adding the Defiant Attack 3 that adds and additional +7 if his HP is equal or less than 50%, he will surely bring down any foes in his wake.
His Special Skill Reprisal costs 200 SP. The Defiant Attack Passive Skill has a total amount of 280 SP. Desperation has 350 SP in total.
