Brave Bride
Click to show/hide build description 
Sporting incredible 35/35 offensive stats, Bridal Cordelia is a force to be reckoned with. With a Brave Bow equipped, she becomes a very scary glass cannon capable of taking out the majority of the Fire Emblem Heroes roster. However, in typical glass cannon fashion, the tradeoff for her excellent attack and speed is that her defensive stats are very low which means the Perfect Bride can't get initiated on without getting seriously hurt or knocked out.

This set utilizes the Icon Skill Weapon.png Brave Bow+ and the rest of this skillset is aimed at maximizing the damage from Brave Bow. Due to Brave Bow's effect, any boosts to the Attack stat are effectively doubled. As such, the preferred boon for this build is +Atk, and the A slot of choice is Death Blow 4.png Death Blow 4. Additionally, the Attack Plus 3.png Attack +3 seal is run in the seal slot. For the B slot, the ever important Chill Def 3.png Chill Def 3 is used to soften the defensive walls that can shrug off Cordelia's damage and one-shot her on the counter.

Icon Skill Special.png Luna is run as the special, as it allows Cordelia to strike down tanks much easier. Alternatively, if the Quickened Pulse.png Quickened Pulse seal is available, she can run Icon Skill Special.png Moonbow in conjunction with the aforementioned Quickened Pulse seal to secure some KO's on units that are not quad attacked by Cordelia.

In the assist slot, either Icon Skill Assist.png Draw Back or Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition can be used for the essential mobility that they give.

Firesweep Bride
Click to show/hide build description 
While the Brave Bow set is better at deleting frail defensive units, Icon Skill Weapon.png Firesweep Bow+ is better at dealing with tanks - especially those with Distant Counter like Hector, as Cordelia can initiate on any unit and not worry about getting counterattacked.

With this set, a +Spd boon is preferred to ensure Cordelia doubles as much units as possible. Life and Death 3.png Life and Death 3 is the A passive of choice, as it increases both attack and speed. The fact that Cordelia's defense and resistance get lowered by it doesn't matter a lot, as Cordelia's defenses are very low even without Life and Death equipped, and Firesweep Bow removes the need for defensive stats when intitating.

In the B slot, Chill Spd 3.png Chill Spd 3 is chosen because it lowers the fastest enemies into a speed value that allows Cordelia to double them. Since only the fastest units can avoid the double, Chill Speed will always target them and allow her to get the two hits reliably.

Just like the Brave Bow build, the C slot is flexible and can be used for a Spur or Hone based on the player's needs.

For the special, Icon Skill Special.png Moonbow is the preferred option as it allows Cordelia to combat tanks more effectively, and it also activates every engage if Cordelia gets the double, which she needs to have a successful kill, thanks to Flashing Blade 3.png Flashing Blade 3. Like with her Brave Bow set, the assist can be either Icon Skill Assist.png Draw Back or Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition.

Uncounterable Bride
Click to show/hide build description 
Using Bridelia's amazing stat spread and a lot of investment, you can make a nearly uncounterable archer that pierces through all weapon types and laughs at Triangle Adept 3.png Triangle Adept 3 Raven mages by treating them as any other unit.

A speed boon is essential, in order to help her double as many units as possible. Reposition is the usual assist skill, while the special depends on the seal used: if Bride Cordelia is using Quickened Pulse, pick Moonbow; otherwise, use Luna.

Swift Sparrow is an overall better choice than Life and Death. Despite having one less attack (the speed difference is negligible unless you're dueling +10 super quick units), Swift Sparrow allows Bride Cordelia to tank a hit from units that don't hit very hard, if she absolutely needs to, in Enemy Phase. Unless the enemy has Bowbreaker 3.png Bowbreaker 3, it's nigh impossible to double her, forcing the enemy to OHKO her or leave her to wipe the team next turn. Cancel Affinity serves to deny the TA raven mages that spawn to counter the strong archers that are present in the meta, while Threaten Def is very useful to soften tanky melee units that can get in range of it without attacking Cordelia.

If Quickened Pulse.png Quickened Pulse is being used on Reinhardt or any other unit, pick the Attack +3 seal and use Luna.
