This Passive Skill can inflict SPD-5 to foes within 2 tiles through their next actions at the start of each turn.
Alm | Final Evaluation:
Alm introduces a new Passive Skill in the game, Windsweep. The Windsweep 3 can put a stop to any counter-attack if his SPD is greater or less than 1 after the computation (Alm’s SPD – foe’s SPD). The skill can also put him down as he can not do a follow-up attack.
Using the Falchion as a weapon can enable him to recover 10HP at the start of every third turn. This is good if you don’t have a healer in your team, or if you do, you can make your healer busy with other units.
Inheriting both Swift Sparrow 2 and Threaten SPD 3 is a great help for his Windsweep passive skill. This can assure you that you can always have a greater SPD than your opponent.
Windsweep Passive skill needs a total of 350 SP to unlock.
