This build really makes Spring Bruno a living tank! It's a high investment build that works best with defensive/supportive/buffing teams.

This set allows Bridal Fjorm to make full use of her personal weapon in order to shut down dancers and omnilink abusers. The immediate thing that one can notice is that there's little to no investment to be had, only with a Special Skill slot and potentially Panic Ploy 3 to complete the entire set, and such slots are flexible depending on what added support you want Bridal Fjorm to bring.

At first glance, she's immediately comparable to Loki and Aversa, as Thökk and Aversa's Night have a support effect that scale off HP as well. She even has a near-identical spread to Aversa, Bridal Fjorm only having one more point of Attack and one less point of Resistance. However, she sets herself apart from her teammates by introducing a brand new anti-meta ability built in her legendary weapon: Isolation.

IVs - +HP/-Res: Usually, +HP is a very mediocre choice due to so many other stats being able to benefit from the boost. However, Fjorm's personal weapon needs all the HP it can for its support ability to function, and she already has a very good 42 base HP for a ranged flier. Conversely and true to Wrazzle Dazzle units, they generally won't care about defensive stats; However, -Res is preferred over -Def as the latter implies a 4-point reduction, which may affect her arena score negatively.

  • Additional note: Resistance exists as a superasset. However, 27 remains too low to make any effective use of ploys, and she would have to take a flaw in either HP, Atk or Spd, all of which she needs too much, or Def which is her superflaw and would completely invalidate the point of going for a superasset as the purpose of Arena scoring. However, if you plan on merging Bridal Fjorm at least once and intend on scoring in Arena, then +Res is the best asset you may have.

Weapon - Gjallarbrú: This is the core of this set. Gjallarbrú turns Fjorm into an amazing anti-meta unit, as careful positioning allows her to completely disable refreshers, including the nightmarish Legendary Azura herself. In reality, she doesn't even need that much HP to shut her down, as even a -HP Bridal Fjorm is capable of disabling Legendary Azura unless she's +HP herself. This weapon also comes in handy for disabling any units that rely on assists to function or support such as Legendary Lucina and Odin.

Assist - Restore+ / Martyr+: Her native Restore+ is a solid option as status healing is always appreciated; However, Martyr+ can also be considered in order to keep her solid HP pool intact in order to consistently trigger her weapon's effect.

Special - Depends: Absolutely depends on the team's purpose. Whether it be Balms, or Imbue/Heavenly Light for that extra oomph in healing, Fjorm has a wide selection of Specials to choose from which can be adjusted for each team.

A skill - HP/Atk 2: Her base skill. Improves her already plentiful HP pool in order to make better use of her weapon's supportive effect while also simultaneously improving her good Attack stat.

B skill - Dazzling Staff 3: Base skill. Bread and butter of a typical Wrazzle Dazzle healer configuration.

C skill - Panic Ploy 3/Ground Orders 3: Panic Ploy 3 synergizes very well with her great HP pool, allowing to cripple even further most non-armor units and shut down standard Blade Tome sets, giving Fjorm excellent role compression as a debuffer. Alternately, her native Ground Orders 3 is a new, fancy tool which can come into use within mixed movement teams, however it is completely useless if you have plans on using Fjorm in an all-flier team.

Sacred Seal - HP +5/ HP/Spd 2: HP +5 bolsters her HP to a massive 54 accounting for an HP asset and the rest of her kit up. This is even higher than most armor units and helps activating her weapon's effect on almost anything at neutral HP IVs bar Hector, Zephiel and Arden. Alternately, you can run a Spd/HP seal. While she might potentially lose a few more opportunities to isolate/panic units such as Winter Chrom, she will bolster her Speed by 2, raising it to a great 36.

Conclusion: Bridal Fjorm is a unique combatant and brings a whole new effect into the table which is very likely to cement her as an anti-meta unit in the future, particularly threatening the dancer meta which is especially prominent in modes like Aether Raids. Her base kit is also excellent for her designated role and helps her contribute right away, making her a unit with impeccable value.

The purpose of this build is to let Lyn peel the enemies, so something else can finish the enemies off. As she is a staff user, she can also fill the spot in your party as a healer. It works well against every type of enemy, as they cannot counter her no matter what and have their movement reduced to the minimum of 1, leaving Lyn safe with a single '"`UNIQ--item-242--QINU`"' or '"`UNIQ--item-245--QINU`"' from an ally.

She fits best in a mixed party, as you can have an armor to heal, a flier for mobility and kiting or a cavalry to finish the wounded enemies off.

Weapon:'"`UNIQ--item-249--QINU`"' is used to reduce all enemy movement to armor movement and prevent them from attacking next turn with help from a friendly assist. With the refinement it also adds good damage to her hits.

Assist: '"`UNIQ--item-252--QINU`"' is a great option for the healing skill, since after they updated the healing to scale with Atk, she will be able to recover 30+ hp. The reason I didn't choose Rehabilitate+ is because I prefer keeping my units at high health instead of recovering almost dying units, but that is personal preference really, so you could choose what you prefer.

Special: '"`UNIQ--item-255--QINU`"' is the special Lyn comes with, and can be kept without any worries. If the build is used correctly, she will never need to heal anyone.

A Passive: '"`UNIQ--item-258--QINU`"' is used because there aren't many offensive A skill options for a staff unit. You could consider using Atk/Spd 2 to help a bit with the damage, but since it is harder to get and doesn't help that much, Speed +3 is more recommended.

B Passive: '"`UNIQ--item-261--QINU`"' to prevent targets from countering Lyn's attacks.

C Passive & Sacred Seal: '"`UNIQ--item-264--QINU`"': is used to cause collateral damage. It stacks with itself and Pain+ so it does 14 damage in collateral damage. That's a lot of damage.

With Weapon Refinery in effect and Bridal Lyn already being the natural, native user of '"`UNIQ--item-299--QINU`"', giving her the Wrathful version of her signature '"`UNIQ--item-302--QINU`"' should be a completely obvious course of action. Not only does Wrathful Candlelight+ hit decently hard with Lyn's good speed and decent Attack, but the damage it does is essentially free thanks to Dazzling Staff, allowing Lyn to wear down the opposing team with little retribution. Update 2.0 also brought about Candlelight's added area-of-effect status, allowing the staff to apply its special status effect to enemies near its target. Thus, this gives Lyn's teammates an opportunity to defeat whoever they need to without risk of being defeated themselves.

Of course, this strategy still is not without its flaws, as Lyn's offense is still fairly average. She also requires Reposition or Dance support to safely escape or defeat some targets, and competent players should mainly be relying on their other weapon users to defeat the opponent. It should be noted that against teams with a focus on armored units (aka Armor Emblem), this set is essentially a free win against them as armors have low movement and cannot hope to keep up with Lyn if she has teammates with movement assists.

'"`UNIQ--item-305--QINU`"' is still a great healing skill despite being underwhelming compared to other premium heals (especially Martyr+), as it instantly restores almost all the health of near-death teammates. It also comes natively on Lyn, so there's little need to change it for efficiency purposes. The Special slot is mostly flexible depending on your needs, but Lyn has access to both '"`UNIQ--item-308--QINU`"' and '"`UNIQ--item-311--QINU`"' by default. Since premium Rehabilitate+ has no cooldown, you can essentially afford to run any Special depending on team needs.

The A-slot passive skill serves to improve Lyn's overall offense or speed. For general purposes, '"`UNIQ--item-314--QINU`"' may be preferred, especially with a Speed boon, as it enables Lyn to achieve more doubles while preventing others from doubling her. It's perfectly serviceable for Lyns of other boons, though if you're not confident in Lyn's ability to double, '"`UNIQ--item-317--QINU`"' improves single hits. Lyn can also increase both stats with '"`UNIQ--item-320--QINU`"', though, let's face it, the average person probably isn't sacrificing a Nephenee just for this.

The Sacred Seal and C-slot are also flexible depending on team needs. If you prefer Lyn to act as a more independent unit, she can equip Savage Blow in either slots or both for added free passive damage. A flat boost Sacred Seal such as '"`UNIQ--item-323--QINU`"' can be used to cover weak spots in Lyn's stat spread, or overkill her Attack or Speed to deal more damage. In the realm of supportive skills, she can also opt for Hone or Fortify boost skills outside of Hone Speed, as Swift-Winds Balm already boosts Speed.

The name of the build says it all: pick a 4* Clarine, inherit Fear, Martyr and Swift-Winds Balm to Priscilla. Then pick a 5* Clarine and inherit Fear+ and Martyr+.

This build does two things in a very good way. You can either power up the bulk of your team by attacking safely (if you have Dazzling Staff) and debuffing enemies with Fear+, or you can bulk up your team's speed, thanks to the combination of Swift-Winds Balm and Drive Spd (if you're using a mixed team)/Goad Cavalry (if you're using Horse Emblem). Fear+ also allows Priscilla to take hits pretty easily, and her high speed will stop enemies from doing follow-up attacks on her. Remember: speed is the best defense.

Jokes aside, there's not much to say about this build, it does its job very well and HP +5 as a seal allows Priscilla to tank hits pretty well, but you can run Ploys safely if you wish. Martyr works much better than Rehabilitate on her, thanks to the fact that she tanks really well (especially mages), and personally I prefer it in general as it allows your healer to stay alive longer, and it's a strong heal skill overall. A 5*+0 Priscilla will heal 20 HP if she's at full HP, and the more damage she'll suffer, the stronger the heal will become. If you prefer Rehabilitate, however, she comes with that so there you go.
