Basically aimed at making Effie really hard to kill. With Burkut's Lance haing a decent attack stat, she can still do some damage. Fierce stance will help to keep her alive against magic and/or dragons. Aegis is for mages specifically. Wary Fighter keeps her from being doubled. The seals accomplish more of the same.

This build is mostly the same as her Brave Lance+ build, but opting for easier to obtain skills like the regular Brave Lance. She still has an incredibly powerful player phase presence, which is improved with '"`UNIQ--item-542--QINU`"'. Her lack of movement means she has a hard time approaching units without heavy positioning assistance however. Against ranged enemies (especially mages), her lack of movement weakness becomes even more apparent since most of the time any ranged unit will be able to engage on her first during her weaker enemy phase.

Defensively, '"`UNIQ--item-545--QINU`"' is selected to ignore her already low Spd, brought even lower by Brave Lance+, negating Brave weapon users' greatest weakness. Wary Fighter is also why -Spd is Effie's bane of choice in this build. With her high Def, '"`UNIQ--item-548--QINU`"' is taken as her special of choice to beef up her damage even more. Thanks to her incredibly high Atk, '"`UNIQ--item-551--QINU`"' can also be considered.

For her assist, '"`UNIQ--item-554--QINU`"' is chosen to increase Effie's range of movement, allowing Effie to move up to 3 spaces a turn depending on ally positioning.

Her C passive slot is left up to team composition considerations and player preference; however, '"`UNIQ--item-557--QINU`"' is a good choice to help Effie support her fellow armored allies.

As for her Seal, '"`UNIQ--item-560--QINU`"' will help her increase the damage she can dish out. '"`UNIQ--item-563--QINU`"' is another option for her to deter opponents with stat buffs.

Like most armored units, due to her lack of movement, Effie is often picked off or damaged for free fairly easily by ranged enemies while trying to approach her target. On top of that, with a Dancer or positioning skills on the other team, these ranged units can essentially move out of Effie's range and kite her until she dies. Thus, this build takes and revolves around '"`UNIQ--item-390--QINU`"' to deal with ranged units. Although not an extreme player phase powerhouse like Brave Effie, this build is still extremely potent due to her already high base Atk. For many ranged units who cannot one-shot Effie or lack the Defense to take a hit, this build shuts these units down. Thanks to Effie's already-high base Atk, tankiness and Wary Fighter, this build still poses a threat to melee units as well, making her a more rounded unit.

For her IVs, to start -Spd is her bane of choice. Not only is this because her Spd is already abysmally low, but because with Wary Fighter, she doesn't need to worry about her Spd being even lower. +Atk is taken as her boon to increase the damage Effie can dish out. Other boons are acceptable to increase her tankiness.

'"`UNIQ--item-393--QINU`"' is taken as her weapon of choice. Deft Harpoon+ provides an overall stat boost for Effie's first engagement. However, this weapon is not only an expensive investment but was an exclusive weapon limited to the Ylissean Summer (Focus) and no longer available. '"`UNIQ--item-396--QINU`"' is also a strong alternative that also has high Mt and decreases her special cooldown by 1. This means she run '"`UNIQ--item-399--QINU`"' at the same charge cooldown as a regular Moonbow with much greater damage thanks to Effie's high Def. Alternatively, Effie's default weapon '"`UNIQ--item-402--QINU`"' can be used instead if neither option is available.

Defensively, the build keeps Effie's default B-slot passive '"`UNIQ--item-405--QINU`"' to prevent other units from doubling Effie. This is what allows Effie to successfully survive most encounters despite her low Spd. Without it, she will lose several match ups against speedier units such as mages.

'"`UNIQ--item-408--QINU`"' is chosen as her Assist of choice due to armored units appreciating the extra movement. '"`UNIQ--item-411--QINU`"' can also be taken as well. Swap is typically seen on tankier units. For example, one common scenario is using Swap on an ally who is in range of the enemy. Unlike other skills like Reposition which will keep both heroes out of range, Swap will leave one unit in range. Effie is fantastic at taking hits, thus Swap is a potential Assist skill that can be taken as well.

For her special, '"`UNIQ--item-414--QINU`"' is selected due to its quick charge time and extra damage, but as mentioned before, she can opt for 3-charge specials if running Slaying Lance+ such as '"`UNIQ--item-417--QINU`"' or '"`UNIQ--item-420--QINU`"'.

For her C passive, '"`UNIQ--item-423--QINU`"' works well on Effie due to her high HP, and allows her to reverse the buffs prevalent on common themed teams (Cavalry, Flying Unit, Armored). This also includes teams that revolve around a -blade tome mage and buffs. Since a green mage with Gronnblade+ (eg. Nino: Pious Mage '"`UNIQ--item-426--QINU`"') has the potential to one-shot Effie, using Panic Ploy to reverse these buffs means Effie has the chance to not only survive a -blade attack, but also potentially kill the mage on the counter.

Otherwise, her C-slot is left open for whatever else a team may need such as Hone Buffs, Threaten / Other Ploy Debuffs, etc.

Her Seal is '"`UNIQ--item-429--QINU`"', which helps mitigate the damage she takes from a range. Alternatively, she could use '"`UNIQ--item-432--QINU`"', which would free up her C skill slot for another armor buff.

This build is intended for Eliwood to tank everything. With the Res refine and Distant Defense 3 seal, he can survive a fully built, fully merged QP Moonbow Reinhardt. He has the ability to survive any build of any ranged cavalier, in addition to the sword cavaliers. Goad Armor was previously exclusive to Hector, but Eliwood can now provide that support to an armored team. Vengeful fighter gives up some survivability, but gives a large amount of kill potential.

This build utilizes specific skill interactions to turn Ephraim into a powerful enemy phase tank that can never be doubled without '"`UNIQ--item-355--QINU`"' or any skill that guarantees a follow-up attack on Player Phase.

The '"`UNIQ--item-358--QINU`"', '"`UNIQ--item-361--QINU`"' effect from '"`UNIQ--item-364--QINU`"', and the '"`UNIQ--item-367--QINU`"' seal interact in such a way to allow Ephraim to only get attacked once and then attack back twice. This is because '"`UNIQ--item-370--QINU`"' cancels follow up attacks from both units. The '"`UNIQ--item-373--QINU`"' effect from '"`UNIQ--item-376--QINU`"' then breaks the symmetry, allowing Ephraim to follow up attack if he makes the speed threshold. Then, the '"`UNIQ--item-379--QINU`"' seal changes Ephraim's ability to double from a speed check to a guarantee, while leaving the enemy unable to get a follow-up attack.

Even though he avoids doubles in this way, he can still get double by the many '"`UNIQ--item-382--QINU`"' armors that exist, if they outspeed him, and as such he should not lower his speed with a bane, especially considering it's a superbane that reduces it by 4. In this case, a res bane is the best one.

'"`UNIQ--item-385--QINU`"' is the weapon of choice, as it provides '"`UNIQ--item-388--QINU`"', which is vitally important for the build.

'"`UNIQ--item-391--QINU`"' helps Ephraim's mobility, which is important especially if you don't have '"`UNIQ--item-394--QINU`"' activated. If you do, however, '"`UNIQ--item-397--QINU`"' is the better option.

'"`UNIQ--item-400--QINU`"' allows Ephraim to always fire off a special in combat, and the defense piercing is more useful than the increase in damage dealt by Glimmer, as squishy targets already are eliminated by getting hit twice, leaving only tanky targets as threats.

'"`UNIQ--item-403--QINU`"' allows Ephraim to counter any unit, preventing ranged foes from getting away with free hits.

'"`UNIQ--item-406--QINU`"' is what allows Ephraim to not get doubled by enemies, cancelling their follow up attack.

Ephraim's C slot is fairly flexible and is dependent on what your team needs. '"`UNIQ--item-409--QINU`"' is a good budget option to help make him and his armored allies move better, and it activates his weapon by itself.

'"`UNIQ--item-412--QINU`"' is the only seal for this build, as it turns the speed check from '"`UNIQ--item-415--QINU`"' + '"`UNIQ--item-418--QINU`"' into a guaranteed follow up attack.

This build is meant to maximize Gwendolyn's ability to be the highest scoring 3-4 star unit along with Gwendolyn. While this build is not as strong as Gwendolyn's other builds, it is able to capitalize on Gwendolyn's large bulk and low attack to create a unit that is fairly capable of supporting an Arena Bonus Unit. If Gwendolyn is an Arena Bonus Unit, or you don't care for having her support, Gwendolyn can be built to be effective in combat outside of just support as well.

This build requires the +Spd boon, as it is a superboon allowing her to reach 170 BST, which makes her the highest scoring 3-4 star available unit in the game. She needs any accompanying non-superbane so -HP or -Def' works out.

Weapon

Gwendolyn picks a '"`UNIQ--item-383--QINU`"' to ensure maximum chipping potential without killing enemies, granting easy kills with bonus. In armor land, she will have effectiveness against nearly every enemy, and with '"`UNIQ--item-386--QINU`"', she is unable to kill them, but damages them heavily. As for the refine, def is preferred because most armors hit her def, but res is also an option

Assist: In order to maximize score, any dual rally is necessary. As a double rally+ is the highest scoring assist Gwendolyn can inherit, she uses it.

Special: In order to maximize score, '"`UNIQ--item-389--QINU`"' is the better pick between the 500SP skills.

A Passive

Due to Gwendolyn' high mixed bulk she can run '"`UNIQ--item-392--QINU`"' well, being a strong mage counter. This also frees up one of her other passive slots to run a 200SP skill.

However, because she does not have access to a unique weapon she doesn't need a 300SP A skill for her maximum score kit, and can instead run any 240 SP passive. '"`UNIQ--item-395--QINU`"' is one of the budget options, as well as '"`UNIQ--item-398--QINU`"' for hybrid bulk.

B Passive

Like every other armor unit, Gwendolyn can run '"`UNIQ--item-401--QINU`"' to prevent herself from killing enemies, and also to tank more enemy attacks at her leisure. With her immense hybrid bulk, she becomes a strong wall that serves kills to the bonus quite well.

C Passive

If you are running Gwendolyn with other armor units, '"`UNIQ--item-404--QINU`"' is the best C skill for either her or her partner. If that option isn't desirable for your team composition any Drive skill or dual spur works.

Seal

If going the ploy support build, a second ploy such as '"`UNIQ--item-407--QINU`"' or '"`UNIQ--item-410--QINU`"' helps her support the team. If not going the ploy support build, any Drive is also good.

To bolster Gwendolyn's defensive potential, she can also use a '"`UNIQ--item-413--QINU`"'

Gwendolyn, as a unit, can struggle to stand out from the pool or armored lances. Hardin pulls off a similar defensive statline whilst sporting better Atk and immediate access to rare and valuable skills. Effie, meanwhile, boasts significantly poorer tanking potential but has such fantastic offensive potential that she's generally a preferred option. Despite this, Gwendolyn still boasts what is arguably the best defensive statline, due to her HP and Defense being the highest in her class. The extreme conclusion of this is, therefore, to build into a formidable wall of a mixed tank, arguably the best such in the game.
