|With the addition of Dragonflowers, and the ability to add to (eventually) improve all the stats of any infantry unit by 2, Bridal Caeda has the ability to act as a dedicated ploying unit, an incredibly fast nuke, and a Blárblade nuke all at the same time. While her build is fairly standard, it is, nonetheless, potent.
'"`UNIQ--item-296--QINU`"' both capitalizes off of one of Bridal Caeda's higher stats, and has a lower cost than '"`UNIQ--item-299--QINU`"', not even mentioning that it's in her base kit. However, '"`UNIQ--item-302--QINU`"' can be taken instead if one believes that the lower cooldown helps, though its viability is entirely subject to the resistance of enemies.
'"`UNIQ--item-305--QINU`"' is Bridal Caeda's standard weapon of choice due to the fact that it can improve her shoddy attack power, though '"`UNIQ--item-308--QINU`"' can be taken if this isn't an option. Keep in mind that if you do wish to take the latter, +Res should be considered, as it improves her ability to ploy enemies, her speed is already incredibly high, and the +Atk refine gives too small of a boost to be potent.
'"`UNIQ--item-311--QINU`"' is the crux of the build, giving Caeda +4 to all of her stats, making it easier to survive the first hit she takes. Plus, with it's 8 damage penalty, she can reach '"`UNIQ--item-314--QINU`"' range much faster, and when that happens, her high speed allows her to double a great deal of characters. '"`UNIQ--item-317--QINU`"' is a budget option, but it has a lower chance of pushing Bridal Caeda into '"`UNIQ--item-320--QINU`"' range, especially if her first combat is against a mage like herself. Still, having less after combat damage might improve her sustainability by a small amount.
'"`UNIQ--item-323--QINU`"' and '"`UNIQ--item-326--QINU`"' are very important to the build, and can both go into the C-slot and S-slot of Bridal Caeda's skillset. When she baits opponents into Ploy range, she effectively has a 34/42 base offensive stat line against those she can ploy. This not only makes her ability to kill things much more impressive, but it allows her to help other mages that would benefit from enemies with lower Res, such as Nino: Pious Mage, or Tharja: Dark Shadow, two units that, with their refines, can also support Bridal Caeda in return.
The main flaw with this build is that it relies on '"`UNIQ--item-329--QINU`"', which, while allowing for a greatly increased offensive output, is also at the mercy of the Panic effect, as well as forcing Bridal Caeda to huddle around specific teammates to support her. If she's using the '"`UNIQ--item-332--QINU`"', this isn't as big of an issue, and she can support alles better, but this comes at the cost of her attack, which, without '"`UNIQ--item-335--QINU`"''s bonus, is incredibly subpar. She also faces competition from Lute: Prodigy, who has better Res and can carry an extra Ploy, and Saias: Bishop of Flame, who also has better Res and the ability to use more than 2 ploy skills. Still, it's one of Bridal Caeda's greater builds, and in the day and age of armor units with inflated stats, the ability to debuff, as well as improved survivability against Veronica: Brave Princess thanks to being both fast and highly resistant to magic means that she can somewhat stand out from her fellow Blue Tome bretheren.
