Dario Hourn
Dario Hourn


A good mixed tank for the story and PVE. He has no choice but to sub spellblade all the time which is hindered by his lack of have at least 1 of his subjobs being mag to support his spellblade. He lacks the stats to do damage with his physical subjobs as well, without a master ability to compensate like Miranda. This makes him do pitiful damage, much lower than other MR tanks like Mariale, Raviesse or Tyttas who can at least do respectable damage.
Can SE revive him and make him UR?

MRs are probably never really going to be competitive except for "season 1" story, if you've played similar games, whether TAC or ffbe in their maturity you understand how low rarity units are just left behind in the dust

Maybe they add a vc like the one for seymore and owe and an ex job and then be roughly as equal as a neglected UR like whisper, but by then the ex UR will outclass them still

of course they can make UR version of him, just make sure to vote for him in the next character popularity poll instead of some random 🔥 girl or something
Assuming he gets rehabilitated a bit with aigaion VC, but not sure by how much
i've been using him for a while, and i think dario is a very versatile tank, considering he is an MR unit. you can shape him to be a physical tank using paladin's guard and high defense armor, or magic tank with magic guard and high spr armor, or you can combine them. he also have a relatively better mobility compared to tank like engelbert or mont with movement +1 or shadow run. you don't need vow of love since he can spam taunting spell with only 19 AP, and use leonis castle instead. his resistances and self buff is also very decent.

i used dario as my main tank, and he is very useful because some high difficulty content need physical tank, and sometimes we need magic tank instead. in arena he can do surprisingly good too. his TMR also very useful for many unit to use. his AI behaviour is quite controllable since we can turn off abilities now.

his weakness would be his almost nonexsitent attacking capability, and many times he only managed to make double digit damage. and he can only be usable with spellblade subjob only, since his other subjob are incompatible with him. also mediena is everywhere right now in arena since everyone can have her, and it's very bad for dario. and like every other non free MR units, it's quite difficult to specifically gather his shard since MR units are rarely featured in summons.

but if you don't have WoL, and you want someone to take a hit for your hard hitting party, you should give dario a try!

It's not taunting spell is 18 ap? Btw yeah he great but as you mentioned, mediena is everywhere. And not only that, he also weak against Agrias, furthermore in future pierce will be meta, so it's will be unfavourable for him. Victora that's have def penetration buff from tmr can easily one-shot him.

oh right, it is 18 ap! my bad.

yep, arena will not be an ideal place for dario in the near future.. but the way arena work is that meta is always shifting. if we ignore the meta, then dario will always be weak againts pierce/ice element, just like engel to magic and rain to water/strike attack. i think there is still a place for dario in arena... though i will never use him in manual PvP :D

I agree with this man. Actually, I wonder before why Dario only receive 3/4 damage (of his health bar) against Cid's crush armor and so this explains everything.
Worth leveling up & buying shards for? I have come to terms with the fact that I am never going to get Vinera. My current tank is Dinglebert, but I don't have a Spellblade on my team yet.

Unit of choice, a ticket for you to pick out any non-limited UR unit (some units will not be available). It's 2K paid vis.

That's actually not how the ticket works. You don't get to choose.

Yes, you can choose. It's UoC ticket, exclusive only in half-anniversary.
Seems like a very promising tank: Resistant to the 3 most popular attack types - Slash, Bullet, Magic (not by much, but hey); can maintain Hate with Taunting Spell; resistant to Earth (Kirufe), and can move easily to the middle of the battlefield.

In terms of HP and DEF, he's very similar to Mont, minus the HP Up passive. With the right gear, he might make a very good surprise tank.

He's neither here or there. A decent "tank" if you lack any alternatives. He's mostly a "def" tank with his board and his overall stats + mastery, but his skills are "magic tank" related, making him a little of both and not leaning to either sides.

Anonymous Reply first he is realy my ideal tank with main+sub like that (spell blade, ninja, and Paladin)...but when you see correctly..he cant use taunting spell if you sub to paladin, because his taunting spell skill at star5 only, and yet his lv6 spell blade skill is only small range atk. the other thing, he is a wind element too, which is to much character for wind. very disapointing

You know that if you sub to Paladin he'll have Taunting blade as a skill? Its the same as Taunting Spell.

Skills like 'Taunting Blade' and 'Taunting Spell' requires for you to consume AP and strike the enemy before being able to generate the hate acquired from the skill. Meanwhile, skills that does not require AP or an enemy to strike to gain hate gains an advantage over tanks like Dario/Agrias/Engel as these units are more likely to be able to taunt right at the get-go; meaning you do not have to
