Sacred Seal: Life and Death / Fury 3 / Hardy Bearing / Flexible

  • Lilina is well equipped to obliterate opponents with Gifted Magic. Since it deals damage out-of-combat based on Lilina’s Atk, skills that boost her visible Atk are preferred, as well as an Atk boon. 
  • Still Water 4 is the best A skill, providing a boost of 7 Atk and Res at the cost of 5 Def, which barely has any impact on Lilina as her Def is already terrible. The Atk boost is an obvious boost in damage, and the Res boost increases her bonus damage from True-Love Roses slightly. 
  • The B skill is flexible, with A/R Far Trace providing a small debuff to her foe’s Atk and Res as well as Canto, while Lull Atk/Res provides that same debuff while also canceling out any buffs her foe has to Atk or Res. 
  • The C skill is also flexible. Joint Drive Atk provides a boost of 4 Atk if Lilina is within 2 spaces of an ally, as well as boosting the Atk of all allies within 2 spaces by 4 in combat. Something else like Pulse Smoke or Savage Blow can also provide useful effects depending on the mode and context Lilina is used in. 
  • The seal is flexible. Life and Death provides the largest boost to visible Atk from a seal, boosting Lilina’s Atk by 5, which generally increases Gifted Magic’s damage by 4 for a total damage increase of about 9. Fury boosts both her Atk and Res by 3, but an increase of 3 Res is not likely to increase the bonus damage from True-Love Roses by even 1 point, so Life and Death is generally the superior option unless Lilina needs the Res for some other reason. Hardy Bearing is also a solid choice; because Gifted Magic hits before combat, foes using a skill such as Vantage may be knocked into its range and be able to counterattack Lilina before she can attack to confirm the KO. Hardy Bearing prevents this.

Sacred Seal: Quickened Pulse

  • Very similar to the above build, but with different skills including Iceberg for contexts in which Area-of-Effect Specials are not desirable. One example of this is Aether Raids defense; due to skills like A/R Far Save, it is possible for an offense player to bait Lilina with one unit, activate Gifted Magic before combat to hit that unit and completely miss the Far Save unit two spaces away. Then, the Far Save unit swaps in after the Special goes off and starts combat at full health. Using a Special like Iceberg prevents this while still packing a punch. 
  • Lilina needs to use the Quickened Pulse seal or another Pulse effect from another unit to fully charge a 3-cooldown Special like Iceberg on turn 1. If she is supported by another unit using a skill like Grandscratcher+ or Ostia’s Pulse, she can opt for a different seal like Life and Death or Hardy Bearing
  • Lull Atk/Res is generally the best B skill for Aether Raids defense, as Canto is not very useful and the buff nullification effect can be quite valuable. 

Strengths

True-Love Roses

Lilina’s new weapon, True-Love Roses, has multiple great effects. It reduces Special cooldown by 1, provides the Quickened Pulse effect of charging her Special by 1 at the start of turn 1, boosts Atk and Res during combat, and deals extra damage equal to 10% of her Res, which will be about 4 or 5 extra damage in most cases. 

Gifted Magic

Lilina shares the Special Gifted Magic with her Legendary version, and uses it well. She can charge it immediately at the start of turn 1 with True-Love Roses and activate it before her first combat for extra damage. As long as her Special charge isn’t slowed in-combat by an effect like Mirror Stance 3, Lilina will gain the 1 charge needed to activate it again when she attacks during combat, and have it ready for her next combat. 

Great Atk and Res, Decent HP

Lilina’s base 44 Atk allows her to deal high damage when attacking, and her base 42 Res allows her to take little damage from magical hits, and gain a bit of extra bonus damage from True-Love Roses. Her base 39 HP is decent, and contributes to her ability to take a magical hit. 

Tome Cavalry

Lilina’s status as a tome-wielding cavalry gives her top-notch range and movement, and allows her to use great skills like Lull Atk/Res and A/R Far Trace

Weaknesses

Low Spd, Terrible Def

Lilina’s base 22 Spd is very low and her base 16 Def is terrible. She has trouble gaining a follow-up attack against most foes and takes very high damage from almost any attack that targets Def. However, due to Gifted Magic dealing extra damage before combat, this is less of an issue than it would be for most units. 

Far Save

Units with skills such as A/R Far Save can be an issue for Lilina; Specials like Gifted Magic that activate before combat activate before Save movement does. So it is entirely possible for her to attack a unit, activate Gifted Magic to hit them, but completely miss the Far Save unit two tiles away. This allows them to cut Lilina’s total damage dealt by about 30-50%, making her much easier to tank and KO. Because of this, it may be better in some cases to use in-combat damage Specials like Iceberg

Foes with high Res or Damage Reduction

Enemy units with very high Res stats will take little damage from Lilina’s attacks. Enemies using skills like Close Call can also cut her damage significantly, allowing them to survive and KO her with a counterattack. Those with both, such as high Res dragons using Dragon Wall, can be very difficult for her to beat. 

False Start, Pulse Tie

If Lilina is targeted by an effect that triggers False Start before the start of turn 1, her Gifted Magic will not charge itself, heavily reducing her damage. At the time of writing, this is generally only relevant if she is being used on an Aether Raids Anima defense against an offense player using Elimine. After Gifted Magic is charged, she may also be hit by enemy effects such as Odd Pulse Tie or Even Pulse Tie that can increase its charge count to prevent her from activating it before her next combat. 

Competition

While Lilina’s effects make her a relatively unique unit, she does compete with many other powerful units, including other similar tome cavalry like Hapi and Legendary Lilina that have strengths she does not (Beast and Dragon effectiveness for Hapi, Hardy Bearing for Legendary Lilina).
