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 Icon Skill Assist.png Draw Back or Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition 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:Wrathful Staff W.png Gravity+ 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: Icon Skill Assist.png Recover+ 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: Icon Skill Special.png Swift-Winds Balm 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: Speed Plus 3.png Speed +3 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: Dazzling Staff 3.png Dazzling Staff 3 to prevent targets from countering Lyn's attacks.

C Passive & Sacred Seal: Savage Blow 3.png Savage Blow 3: 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 Dazzling Staff 3.png Dazzling Staff 3, giving her the Wrathful version of her signature Icon Class Colorless Staff.png Candlelight+ 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.

Icon Skill Assist.png Rehabilitate+ 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 Icon Skill Special.png Imbue and Icon Skill Special.png Swift-Winds Balm 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, Speed Plus 3.png Speed +3 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, Attack Plus 3.png Attack +3 improves single hits. Lyn can also increase both stats with Atk Spd 2.png Atk/Spd 2, 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 Speed Plus 3.png Speed +3 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.
