A simple build template that's been floating around with the introduction of Nino's prf tome, Iris's Tome. By stacking three Even Wave effects Nino can self buff her attack by +24 which allows her to slot in more easily with other teams without dedicated buffers like Eirika. Draconic Aura is a fairly standard choice but to deal with Surtr more reliably, Moonbow or Luna may be required.

One of the best budget-friendly characters comes with her own prf that continues the tradition pretty well! This isn't too different from what a standard Nino should look like, but built around her new prf tome and it's effect refine.

Iris's Tome has the same Blade tome effect that kept Nino great before, but now slightly stronger and without a special penalty. She can also combine it with a built-in Even Atk Wave, which gives her some self-sufficiency and the ability to cover for one of her buffed stats quite nicely - and, since it's Atk, the effect is essentially double thanks to the Blade tome.

Her assist, special, A, and B slot stay pretty standard. Reposition is just a good general use assist that can be replaced as desired. Glimmer is recommended since it scales really well off of the high damage output of Blade tomes, but Moonbow is good for bursting through high Res targets if desired. Fury 3 (or 4 if you're lucky!) is a great general boost to her offenses. Swift Sparrow lacks some flexibility, but gives a more consistent stat bonus to what matters most on Nino. Desperation lets Nino potentially safely double other mages and DC units when she takes a bit of damage.

Her C slot can be a lot of things, but as she have an Even Atk Wave built in, I'd suggest going two directions: - Odd Atk Wave lets Nino maintain a permanent +6 to her attack, on her own, with no outside assistance. Great for consistency, but she'll still be reliant on other allies for other buffs. - Even Spd Wave lets you double up on your built-in buff, and instead of being consistent gives you a large amount of power every second turn. When combined with the Even Def Wave Seal, you get even more power on your own.

For general purposes, a simple Atk/Spd 2 or Speed +3 will work if not going for full Even Wave buffs. If you're confident, Flashing Blade is also worth considering, as Nino can be sufficiently fast to fire off her Glimmers and Moonbows even faster.

If Pared with L!Azura, She can attack then get Sing witch gives +6 To everything and with Iris's Tome that is a +26 Damage every Turn (as long as you sing). Even without that's still, a solid +12 to attack every turn

Nino actually works surprisingly well with Lewyn's base kit. Accounting for the fact that Iris's Tome has Even Atk Wave 3 as a refine, Lewyn's Odd Atk Wave can give her an effective +12 Atk every turn. Her Atk ans Spd are very respectable, so having Swift Sparrow 2 would not hurt in the slightest. Iris's Tome works spectacularly well with Special Spiral in that, in addition to being a 16-Might Blade Tome, it doesn't slow down your Cooldown Count like a normal "-Blade" tome would. Nino already appreciates the versatility that comes with Glimmer, so that's a no-brainer. To round it all off, as there are only 2 "Wave" skills as seals at the moment, either Even Res Wave or Even Def Wave can take up the Sacred Seal Slot. If you want, you could use Even Spd Wave as an alternative C-Skill in order to give her an extreme boost to her attack, but onlt during Even-Numbered Turns.
