This build allows Fae to use Special Fighter 3 at full potential thanks to her incredible bulk. +Def is preferred for her boon over +Res in order to have better mixed bulk. Since she actually has the highest base Res in the game(when this build was submitted), a Res boon isn't that significant. For her bane, I chose -HP instead of -Spd. Fae has good base HP, so lowering her HP is safer than Spd for me, so she can avoid more doubles.

Weapon: Gliterring Breath+ is the weapon of choice. With the Def refine, she reaches 87/88 at defences without the weapon effect, than can be even higher with the effect of Glittering Breath and skills like Ward Armor/Dragons and Rallies or Fortify skills. With an optimal team, she can become an absolute wall that never takes damage(or a little damage) except from Falchion users, Naga tome users and maybe Legendary Tiki. If you don't have any Distant Counter fodder, then you can use instead Lightning Breath+(+Def) to allow Fae to counterattack every unit she fights(except dazzling healers, firesweep users and watersweep fighters).

Assist: If the player plays Fae in a Armor team, Swap or Pivot can be the best choices for Assist. Other Assist skills can also be used depending on the team, so the player can use what he wants depending on situation.

Special: Aether is the best choice of special here, in order to help Fae dealing more damage and keeping her into Special Fighter 3 threshold thanks to her self-sustain.

Slot A: Distant Counter is the preferred skill to use here. She can counterattack every unit without the +1 special cooldown and Distant Counter synergises pretty well with Glittering Breath. Being an armored Dragon, Fae will always stay at 2 spaces of an ally, activating her breath effect. If you prefer running Lightning Breath +, then Bracing Stance 2, Steady Stance 4 can be used, particularly Steady Stance 4 if you don't have Special Fighter 3 on her.

Slot B: Special Fighter 3 is the best skill to use here. She will often trigger Aether thanks to this skill and avoid specials from the enemy thanks to the Guard 3 effect, and so help her to keep her HP high. However, if you don't have Special Fighter 3 or don't want to give it to her, so Quick Riposte 3, Vengeful/Bold Fighter 3 or Wary Fighter 3 can be good options, Wary Fighter being a more budget one.

Slot C: Armor March 3 is her natural C-skill and is very cool to use, so it can be used on an Armor team. Also, Ward Dragons/Armor can be good alternatives. This slot is flexible, so the best skill to use depend on situation and the team used to play.

Seal Slot: With Special Fighter 3, Quick Riposte 3 is the best skill to use, increasing her damage output and allowing Fae to heal herslef more easily. Close/Distant Def 3 can also be good seals to use.

This set is for those of us that don't have the luxury of Distant Counters to spare. You can get 3 and 4 star Tikis so Lightning Breath is a lot more attainable. Lightning Breath+ and her default Def/Res Bond 3 A skill work effectively the same as Glittering Breath+ / Distant Counter sets. Def/Res Bond might even be easier to get boosts from, a constant +5 Def/Res from just one adjacent ally. The first downside to this set is Glittering Breath has 2 more Might/Attack. The second downside is Lightning Breath has cooldown count +1, making Aether a less viable Special. But if you're using Glacies anyway, this doesn't make much difference as it'll still trigger on her second hit with Vengeful Fighter. If she's on a full Ward Armor team her def/res will be high enough that she won't take much damage if any, so it might be worth considering a Fierce Stance 3 Seal. Distant Def / Close Def Seals are good too, but much like Distant Counter, you can probably get better value with those on other units. All in all, this Fae is an absolute beast without having to spend valuable resources.
