Passive B: Dive-Bomb / Desperation 

Passive C: Spd/Def Rein / Odd Atk Wave

Sacred Seal: Swift Sparrow / Quickened Pulse

  • This is a high-investment set that sees Caeda function at her absolute best, by using new, powerful skills to synergize with her still-relevant weapon.
  • Due to Caeda's naturally high Speed, coupled with her Wing Sword and the Dive Bomb skill, she is capable of outputting a lot of damage despite her low Attack. This set functions to allow her to double attack her opponent before they can retaliate using Dive-Bomb, while the Special acceleration in Wing Sword allows her to proc a Moonbow attack on the second hit.
  • Of course, this is only if she can naturally double and her and her foe's HP meets the Dive-Bomb requirements, so you'll want to take care that her Speed isn't debuffed by her foe.
  • Spd/Def Rein is the logical choice in C slot, as it grants Caeda even more Attack and Speed power over her foe.
  • Alternatively, she can run a Galeforce set, utilizing Quickened Pulse in her S slot to activate Galeforce after a single combat, so long as she doubles naturally.

Passive B: Guard Bearing / Quick Riposte

Passive C:  Atk/Spd Rein / Atk Ploy

Sacred Seal: Spd/Res Solo / Distant Def

  • This set utilizes Caeda's high Speed and Resistance to become a counter to mages in addition to her natural anti-armor and anti-cavalry weapon.
  • Her low defense makes her terrible at countering archers anyway, so she doesn't care for Iote's Shield - in fact, she could actually take Distant Ward if available to further specialize in magic tanking.
  • Guard Bearing is extremely helpful in her B, as it will activate no matter her foe and help her to survive an enemy attack in either phase.
  • Atk/Spd Rein is the more expensive of her C slot options, but further increases the likelihood that she will survive an engagement while also doubling her opponent.
  • While Quick Riposte may seem out of place on such a fast unit, Caeda struggles to keep up with fast mages such as Lysithea and will appreciate the bit of extra help in doubling her in return.

Strengths

Wing Sword

The weapon that currently defines Caeda, dealing effective damage against both armored and cavalry units.

The popularity of these two archetypes ensure that Wing Sword is extremely relevant in the Arena, particularly against problem units like Legendary Edelgard.

She also gets built in Flashing Blade, helping her to build her Specials much faster due to her decent Speed stat.

Decent Speed

Sitting at 37 speed at neutral, Caeda can generally keep up with most units in Arena, though she may require a Drive Speed buff to avoid being doubled by insanely fast units such as Summer Byleth.

This synergizes well with Wing Sword’s Flashing Blade refinement, which grants her additional Special cooldown as long as she is faster than her foe.

Good Resistance

Caeda has 34 Resistance at neutral, enabling her to be a fantastic Ploy user for your team.

The magical bulk also aids her in dueling mages, especially in a Distant Counter build.

Finally, she is excellent at dueling dragons, particularly the armored dragons which are commonly seen in Arena.

Weaknesses

Low Physical Bulk

With a mediocre 24 Defense at base, Caeda will keel over against any bows or high Attack units.

Her HP isn’t helping matters, making repeated melee encounters difficult without a skill like Dive-Bomb or Desperation.

Low Attack

Her native attack at 25 is one of the lowest natural Attack stats in the game.

Fortunately, her Wing Sword's effectiveness against armor and dragon units helps to counteract this, but if she's not facing off against an opponent she has effectiveness against, or if she does not have a Special charged, then Caeda will not be doing much damage at all.
