|With an unimpressive physical bulk of 49 at 0 merges, Summer Linde can hardly find herself attacking any armors or dragons that can counter her with Distant Counter or one of the many weapons with a similar effect. Due to her lack of damage, being a dagger unit, she can rely on the debuff niche she has while avoiding counters with her B skill.
Smoke Dagger+ is the best debuffing dagger Linde can use, reducing every enemy stat by 6 until their next move. With her horse range, she can apply the AoE debuff at big distances and setting up easier kills for her allies. As for the refine, she requires extra speed to ensure her sweep skill activates, to dodge the fatal counters she will certainly have to face. As for the assist and special, they are flexible, given her role is to use her turn to debuff and little else.
Her A, Swift Sparrow 2, offers a good offensive mix to help her deal damage and avoid the counter with the sweep skill, although Darting Blow 3 gives her even more speed, at the cost of providing no extra atk. Her B, Watersweep 3, targets manaketes and makes them unable to counter her, which would prove fatal to our summer dagger. This skill is preferred over the other version due to the fact that dragons have a more budget DC option in Lightning Breath+, and as such are more common in most arena tiers.
As for the rest of the slots, they can used to add some extra utility to her attacks, in the form of Savage Blow 3's extra AoE damage, although these slots are flexible.
