Selena has a very balanced spread to her stat-line. She possesses a surprising amount of bulk for the average infantry sword-user and this build aims to take advantage of that by using Steady Breath. She will charge her special rapidly and be able to deal an immense amount of bonus damage with it.

Weapon: Icon Class Red Sword.png Wo Dao+ is integral to this build as its ability affords Selena more damage, a department where she lacks. Her low attack is partially offset by the fact that this weapon has decent Might and provides +10 damage during special activation.

Assist Skill: Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition is an excellent assist skill for many units and Selena is no exclusion to this. Thankfully, Selena comes with this skill built into her kit, so no additional SP or fodder will be necessary to provide her this.

Special: Icon Skill Special.png Ignis allows Selena insane bonus damage. Coupled with Steady Breath , achieving the high charge (4) that Ignis has is achievable; each action when she is under attack would reduce her charge by 2 rather than one, making this skill's activation possible. Ideally, she will receive the +4 Def from Steady Breath and activate Ignis, yielding 41 total bonus damage.

A Skill: Steady Breath.png Steady Breath is the most critical element to this build. This skill adds additional bulk to her when she is under attack and allows her special to activate significantly more often. The added bulk also adds to her damage output when her special activates. Coupled with Quick Riposte, she can activate her special during her first engagement, assuming she is being attacked.

B Skill: Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3 couples well with the rest of this build, optimizing her as an enemy phase unit. With Quick Riposte, she will double those who attack her always (given she's in the proper HP threshold/can counter) and will activate her special during this counter.

C Skill: Flexibility is suggested here, for there are no specific skills that would help Selena excel for this build. For example, various team supporting skills would suffice here.

Sacred Seal: This slot can also be addressed with some flexibility, for she has no Sacred Seal that is an absolute must in this build.

As a brawler, Selena refuses to allow an opponent to get away.

With Fury behind her incredibly balanced stat yield, she becomes an incredibly balanced tanker that can pack a serious punch. Sitting at 41 attack and 38 speed, she rivals even Lyn and Peri for speed destruction without being overly frail in return. The Wo Dao+ helps compliment her damage to allow her to shine damage wise.

Granted she doesn't have a lot of health to throw around, but between Atk Ploy/Threaten Atk and both of her defenses breaching 30 its not nearly as much of an issue. Drag Back is in case she's not able to seal the deal and needs help OR can be used to drag an enemy away from a friendly unit that may need room to breathe the next round. All in all I think Selena has a lot more to offer than most people believes she does, it goes to show that she really does deserve better when it comes to being used in combat.

This build revolves around Selena being able to deal with lots of damage, while at the same time having a decent output.

her def+ armorsmasher is best for this build because it adds additional defense allowing her to take more hits, especially from high damage armor units like Hector and black knight, which are found commonly in higher arena tiers. additionally, HP +5 and distant defense allow her to take some extra abuse from mages and archers like Celica and Lyn, so that she can reach them before being completely obliterated

Her swordbreaker 3 and threaten speed almost always guarantee attacking twice in most combat situations, which can be useful even against non-armored targets
