Considering many of my runs will be No-Reclass ones, today and tomorrow's skills will never see any use from me. Well, whatever. It's not like I wanted to have a Berserker or anything...


Despoil is an interesting skill. It's another skill with an activation rate (almost a week since one of those popped up) and in it's case it's Luck%. Whenever it activates, you can get a Small Bullion (sells for 1000G)...if you defeat the enemy.

Money is always a plus, no matter where you are in the game, but this isn't a reliable source of money...It's nice, but is also not a lot. The fact that it's activation rate is not the only factor that decide whether you will get the money or not...

Being gender-locked and requiring reclassing is a bad thing, IMO, but i'll not consider those. I give it a C rank. Better than Armsthrift at any rate. (I still have my flameshield from C7. Just sayin' )


Gamble, when used, gives a -5 Hit penalty in exchange for a +10 Critical.

It's essentially a free +10 Critical. -5 Hit is negligible. Sure, the boost is low, but criticals are very powerful. It's like Rightful Heir with Lethality or Aether. I give it an A.

Nominate useless cr-- I mean, Armsthrift.

Wait, don't you still not have the game? Armsthrift is AMAZING, regardless of where you are, what DLC you have, etc.

Anyway, C, C, and Lethality

Is D a set lowest tier, or can I vote for something to go to the E tier?

I'll put Despoil at B and Gamble at C. Forgetting that golden gaffe exists for a moment, despoil nets you a free 1000 every now and then which can really help with forging weapons and buying new ones. So I'd put despoil up at B tier

Gamble on the other hand is pretty solid, a free 10 crit chance really rocks and the -5 hit is negligible, but I just feel that there are better skill choices than Gamble

Despoil is a skill that becomes next-to useless with The Golden Gaffe.

That said

Despoil - B w/o DLC
Gamble - C

Infinite Regalia, 4 Different Weapons per character+ healing item, Chrom's Convoy, Using the max number of units per chapter, Golden Gaffe, etc...

It's description could very well be: "Wastes a slot".

B and B. Despoil, while just annoyingly filling you inventory if you have funds, is pretty important if you want to max out a file without having DLC, I would say.

While I normally wouldn't forsake any hit chance, I have to say that, now that he is starting to catch up, my crit build Vaike is great. Not a good skill for every set, but gamble pretty much makes crit builds possible.

Another nom for Astra. Neeeeds S.
