Drop Spd
Click to show/hide build description 
This build gears Florina to be an enemy phase fighter. By choosing to drop her Spd, she's allowing her enemies to double her, tanking both hits, and unleashing a vicious Special on her assailant at the end of the exchange.

Weapon: Defense Plus W.png Slaying Lance+ is Florina's weapon of choice. It is necessary to reduce the charge of Glacies down to 3 so she can activate it more easily.

Assist: Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition is a good Assist in general to use. Its uses are versatile, as it can either help bring an ally closer to the fray, or bring an ally out of danger. Fliers can put it to good use with their freedom of movement.

Special: Glacies is Florina's Special, chosen as it adds damage based off of a majority of the unit's Res. As Florina has plenty of Res to use, this Special is certain to cause a lot of damage.

A Passive: Distant Counter is Florina's A skill, chosen so that she's not helpless against most ranged attackers, like mages. She will still have to be wary about archers, however.

B Passive: Guard 3.png Guard 3 is is Florina's B skill if she's using Quick Riposte 3 as her Seal. With Guard, she can deter enemies who rely on their Specials to break through their opponents. However, if enemy Special mitigation is not an issue, then she could run Quick Riposte 3 as her B skill instead, which will allow her to perform a follow up attack when she's attacked. Provided that the enemy doesn't have any method of Special mitigation against Florina themselves, and if they double Florina, then her second strike will activate her Glacies.

C Passive: Def Ploy 3.png Def Ploy 3 is an option for Florina's C skill, as she has a great amount of Res for effective Ploy use. This skill will help her deal even more damage, which can help secure the victory against tougher opponents. Alternatively, Atk Ploy 3.png Atk Ploy 3 can be chosen instead, and this would instead help mitigate the damage that Florina takes, allowing her to tank more hits.

Sacred Seal: Quick Riposte 3 is Florina's Seal if she's using Guard 3 as her B skill. With Quick Riposte, she'll be able to perform a follow up attack when she's attacked, which is essential to help solidify this build as a powerful enemy phase build. If she's already using Quick Riposte 3 as her B skill, then her Seal is Close Def 3.png Close Def 3, which improves her bulk against melee threats, letting her tank even more hits.

Optimized Florina
Click to show/hide build description 
Florina is blessed with two super-boons (one in speed and one in defense). While her speed is lackluster, even with the super-boon; her defense makes her an amazing mixed tank – especially for a flier.

Given her weapon procs only on enemy phase melee engagements, it is important for Florina to be bulky. That is why Defense Boon IV works best. Forgoing the Attack Boon sacrifices 4-6 damage per hit against armored foes but makes Florina able to endure 4 extra damage per hit. This sturdiness may be necessary to take hits from high damaging foes and activate her weapons boosted stats.

Equipping Florina with Quick Riposte 3 is necessary for her to double foes in general she doesn’t have effectiveness or weapon advantage against. Given her low speed and attack, Quick Riposte as an absolute must to patch up her weak offense to make her more well-rounded. Once again given Florina gets boosted stats on enemy phase, Quick Riposte is a pretty good choice; since you will be baiting enemy foes to attack her for the most part anyway.

Attack Ploy bulks her up even further against armored folks who typically have low magic resistance, thereby suffering 5 reduced attack when facing Florina. You may opt for Defense Ploy instead if you wish to make Florina more of an offensive type. Both are plausible.

Finally, Distance Counter is an absolute must to make Florina able to make good use of her high resistance and counter those pesky foes. Given her mixed bulk, Iote’s Shield makes her also make short work of archers.

Best at Everything
Click to show/hide build description 
Florina has very high base stats in all but speed, hindering that weakness and allowing herself to become a flying tank brings out her true potential. Equipping def boosting skills and ridersbane allows her to kill most cavalier units despite her low speed stat, and she can even be used to bait out mage units with her extremely high neutral resistance stat. Aether may not be optimal, but it does help her take out tankier units in sticky situations, even with a weapon triangle disadvantage, all the while boosting her back into range for quick riposte to work if you're running without a healer. This build does require a LOT of investment (Black Knight, Mathilda, potentially Berkut), but if you want a way to use Florina, this is a sureflier way to bring destruction to some unsuspecting foes. If you choose to support her with your character, the bonus health and other stats will make her even more of a force to reckon with. In terms of supporting, it'd be best to match her with another flier, a unit with hit and run, or another equally tanky axe user with whom to swap out depending on the situation.~RpiesSPIES

Big Returns
Click to show/hide build description 
Florina has one of the highest RES compared to other fliers and has slightly higher than average HP but lacks in mostly everything else. Fury 3 fixes this by giving Florina a buff to her less than average stats.

-HP IV is restored with the +5 HP from Refined Berkut's Lance+.

Berkut's Lance+ and Fury 3 gives Florina's ATK a boost with an extra 17 ATK to make her less than impressive base ATK stat viable.

With Fury 3 and Close Defense 3 Florina's Defense becomes slightly above average when attacked up close.

+SPD IV, Fury 3, and +3 SPD from Refined Berkut's Lance+ gives Florina a Boost to her speed. This allows her to not get doubled as often while allowing her to double units she shouldn't have been able to double. Threaten Speed 3 compliments this side of her. Florina can easily take advantage of Threaten Speed by positioning herself where the enemy will fall within two spaces of her because she is a flying unit.

Quick Riposte 3 makes Florina guarantee a double when she is attacked. Close defense 3 Seal, Fury 3 and +7 RES from Refined Berkut's Lance+ let Florina defend with an extra 16 RES to her already high Base Res Stat when attacked up close. This in turn makes her very efficient against Dragon units. She also becomes more of a Magic Sponge when attacked because of Refined Berkut's Lance+ and Fury 3, giving her an extra 10 RES when defending. Distant Defense 3 makes her a good Mage Counter but she won't be able to counter mage units with the extra RES she gets from the skill which means she won't be able to use the extra RES when activating Glacies.

Glacies lets Florina deal 80% damage of her RES which is about an extra 29-30 damage (with Fury 3). This is a bit more than half of a lot of unit's Health in the game. The damage output from Glacies increases when attacked because of buffs from Berkut's Lance and Close Defense.

Assist skills are flexible but I'd recommend Reposition because Florina is a flying unit. This allows her to potentially move units areas the map that normal grounded units can cross.

The only downfall Florina has is the fact that she will be losing 6 HP after combat without a way of personally restoring her own HP. So she will need help from the team she's in to survive longer or this can be solved by Summoner Supporting her. This gives her a good extra HP to spend and buffs to all of her stats.
