Hone Me Please
Click to show/hide build description 
This build is intended for a flier only team. As usual, hone/ward/etc. C-skills are a must, and given the movement potential and dance support Ninian will provide I've found this makes "defeat so-and-so with a flier only team" challenges a breeze.

Icon Skill Assist.png Dance. She's a dancer... Use it.

Icon Class Blue Tome.png Blárblade+. Within synergistic teams blade tomes are always an obvious choice. Given her low Atk stats this is the best way to ensure your blue Ally slot isn't wasted on a support only role.

Atk Spd Bond 3.png Atk/Spd Bond 3 is one of my favorite relatively new A-skills introduced. It is not turn dependent like stances and blows, and within a synergistic team your units typically stay near or next to each other. +5Atk/Spd is very significant, maximizing on her already solid speed and helps make up for her naturally low attack.

Icon Skill Special.png Luna is a great special because it allows Ninian to make up for her low Atk, If you anticipate a higher numbered turn battle, Icon Skill Special.png Moonbow is a good choice as well, sacrificing a bit of power for more frequent use.

Chill Atk 3.png Chill Atk 3 is the best skill for her, since it's free and already very useful.

Atk Smoke 3.png Atk Smoke 3 is also my favorite C-skill due to the defensive capability it provides. Pairing Ninian with some allies with reposition allows her to attack, weaken the resulting enemies, and move safely out of combat range. If you think about it in a slightly abstract way, it increases each allies def/res by 7... So why not?

Flier Formation 3.png Flier Formation 3 maximizes on her support role. It increases her movement range for attacks as well as rescue dances so its an easy choice.

Magic Tank
Click to show/hide build description 
The main point of this build is that you don't have to choose between using Ninian to attack or dance during player phase, since it is entirely oriented towards enemy phase combat. She can be an excellent magic tank in enemy phase and provide team support via dancing during player phase. This can be worked to support a mixed-movement team (hence attack tactic and guidance), but she becomes even stronger with flier buff support.

Flier Buffer
Click to show/hide build description 
This build turns Ninian into a buffbot dancer, giving every adjacent flier +4/+4/+6/+6 stats. Pair her with a bladetome flier (preferably green or red) and destroy everything. She is surprisingly speedy, and can double many foes and kill them with Triangle Adept 3.
