The best Lyn Emblem skills and pairings are here in this very page. With her heavy focus on Spd, Lyn is an excellent Emblem to Sync to some of your faster melee units. She’s known as the Emblem of Blazing and has type bonuses with most melee classes. This page will tell you everything you need to know about her.
Lyn Emblem Basic Stats and Background
|Engage Attack||Engage Skill||Usable Weapons|
|Astra Storm||Call Doubles, Foe Engage Attack Damage/2||Killer Bow (Lyn), Mani Katti, Mulagir|
Lyn is from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade that released back on the Gameboy Advance, the first Fire Emblem title to do so. The Blazing Blade is also a prequel to The Binding Blade, also on the same system. You’ll have to wait until Chapter 11 to obtain this Emblem Ring, where she comes synced to Ivy.
Her Astra Storm Engage Attack will fire a barrage of bow attacks with a range of 10, allowing you to take out tricky foes long before they can become an issue. Her Engage Skill, Call Doubles, will call four illusionary units that can also take part in Chain Attacks. Enemy Units will also be drawn to these doubles.
As mentioned above, Lyn is predominately aimed at melee units who already are focused on high Spd. She’ll offer plenty of boosts to Spd that will allow already fast Units to double attack against most enemies. Astra Storm is a fantastic Engage Attack purely down to its range, allowing you to deal with a Unit that may cause you problems later in the encounter.
Call Doubles is another excellent Engage Skill, as the illusionary units that are summoned act as an excellent diversion due to the enemy AI opting to target them when possible. They’ll also join in Chain Attacks and can counterattack in battle.
Killer Bow (Lyn), the Emblem weapon that Lyn starts with is an excellent ranged weapon that has increased Critical Chance. Mani Katti is a sword effective against both Armored and Cavalry Units while her final weapon, Mulagir, is a stronger bow that grants a boost to the Unit’s Spd too.
Best Lyn Emblem Skills to Inherit
As with most Emblems, their stat skills are always useful, but they’re expensive and your slots are limited. There’s a little more argument for the Spd+ stats, due to how useful they are as arguably the best stat in Fire Emblem. The Alacrity series of Skills (Bond Levels 1, 13, and 18) are fantastic skills on already fast characters. This skill will allow Unit’s that have a Spd advantage against your foe the chance to perform their follow-up attack before their own counterattack. As you’ll want this on already fast characters (such as Yunaka), you should be triggering this fairly often.
Another incredibly useful Skill to inherit from Lyn is her Speedtaker Skill. This will grant a stacking Spd+2 each time you defeat a target in battle when you initiate it first. This can reach a maximum of +10 Spd, making the unit a double-attacking killing machine.
Best Lyn Emblem Pairings
Lyn is all about her Spd, and using it to make fast characters even stronger, so this should form the basis of your thinking for who to pair her Emblem with (although she’s fantastic on most Units). As a general rule, any character who makes good use of Sigurd, will make good use of Lyn.
As you may expect, being a bow user himself, Alcryst will make good use of this Emblem. He already has the range, but the boost to Spd will allow Alcryst to double attack more often and as such, make use of the Alacrity skills to get his attacks in before your targets. The addition of Killer Bow (Lyn) is yet another reason why she shines here.
Just as Sigurd is fantastic (and probably better) on her, Lyn is also very good when paired with Yunaka. She already has high Spd and if you can keep her on terrain that offers +Avo, you’ll trigger her Personal Skill more often. With Lyn equipped, she should almost always get two attacks in every combat round. She will also get good use out of Speedtaker due to how often she kills the foes she starts combat with.
There are many more characters that can make use of Lyn, Alear, Anna, and Chloé are all other excellent alternatives, or you could consider equipping her to a slower unit to give them a much needed Spd boost. All in all, there’s not really a bad choice when it comes to this Emblem.
