This build is the counterpart to my Jack of All Trades build for Saizo. It functions best on either an Enemy phase team with teammates using with Reposition, or a Player phase Cavalry team that can follow in to clean up the debuffed and weakened enemies.

Smoke Dagger+ - Smoke Dagger is preferable to Silver Dagger due to the extra debuffs, but if you're looking for a more inexpensive build, Silver Dagger with Spd refinement will work fine.

Harsh Command - Either Harsh Command or Reposition work here, neither are crucial to the build's success. Any assist skill could fit in this build.

Growing Wind - Again, up to your discretion. Growing Wind provides more AoE chip damage while Glacies or Iceberg would take advantage of her impressive Res to deal high single target damage.

Warding Blow - Warding Blow is used to ensure she survives most retaliation from mages or Distant Counter dragons. Note that this will be ineffective against dragons with Refined Breaths.

Windsweep - Windsweep is used to prevent most archers and Distant Counter melee units from retaliating against her.

Savage Blow - Savage Blow is used to soften up to debuffed targets, and make sure they can be easily finished either on the enemy phase or by your Cavalry.

Sacred Seal - If you chose to inherit and refine a Smoke Dagger+, the Savage Blow Sacred Seal pairs best for extra chip damage. If you kept her Silver Dagger, Atk Smoke is a better choice to further debuff the enemy squad.

This build was made to make Fir a little Ayra, which relies on a 2 attack cd special and hers high speed to double almost any opponent and manage to use Iceberg on any given double attack. Strongly recomand to have +Spd IV because of this reason, but even +Res might be good. Personally I gave Fir anything i could: Summoner Support, Water type God Gift (for speed), and I leveled up the Killing Edge+ to Slaying Edge+ (strongly racomand) and leveled that up for increased Res. My Fir 5 Star Lvl 40+1 has 52 PS, 38 Atk, 42 Spd, 26 Def and 37 Res, without Unit support and God's Gift increased Spd. She can tank up any mage assoult but Reinheart with Quick Pulse, than oneshot any given Unit with less than 40 HP and 25 Def, even Spears. If we exclude Spears she can take down even 30 Def and 45 HP Red Units. If you manage to take full advantage of the 2 Ploys (Atk and Def) you can actually Duel almost anyone with some support (such as Azura or simply a Healer).

This build is meant for Peri's res to truly shine and synergise with her impressive Attack and Speed. Her Resistance is the core of the build. Though Berkut's Lance+ can definately go well Peri too, this build allows Peri to initiate her Glacies ASAP with Slaying Lance+ (Note: Refining the Slaying Lance+ is optional). This will work especially well on the Player Phase thanks to Warding Blow 3 and Threaten Def 3. Though she'd definately not a physical tank by any means, this is where the Close Def 3 and Swordbreaker 3 comes in. With the large amount of sword units out there, this allow Peri to rush through such problems. She's a glass cannon, so dont expect her to do well alone. But at the same time, don't let this Cold-Hearted doll catch you off guard.
