  • This build aims to maximize Cecilia’s durability to take ample advantage of her new exclusive weapon, the Tome Of Order, which grants her advantage against colorless units in addition to effective damage against fliers, giving her a plethora of advantageous matchups.
  • If one decides to invest in Cecilia’s Speed further for Aether Raids, Atk/Spd Solo 4 or Steady Posture 3 alongside a Speed asset and support from Peony can raise Cecilia’s Speed to reasonable levels, allowing her to both deny follow-up Attacks and get some of her own against slower opponents. Otherwise, Close Foil and Mirror Stance are her best options.
  • Lull skills are the premier B slot option for cavaliers, thanks to its powerful buff negation combined with a debuff to two of the enemy’s stats. Without Speed investment, Quick Riposte is a decent choice of sacred seal alongside a Lull skill, as Cecilia will be hard pressed to perform Follow-up attacks on most foes due to her low base Speed. Quick Riposte is also a solid budget B slot if Lulls are unavailable to you.
  • Pulse Smoke is one of Cecilia’s best C slot choices, as it enhances her ability to deny enemy special activations, although she can also make good use of other C slots such as Atk Smoke, depending on the team’s needs. Otherwise, defensive sacred seals or the Quick Riposte sacred seal(run alongside Lull Atk/Res) are solid options to round off her kit.

  • Cecilia can also function as a specialized counter to the plethora of dangerous Blue and Colorless foes present in Fire Emblem Heroes, such as Ophelia, Legendary Alm, and Legendary Chrom.
  • Cecilia’s refined Tome of order gives her inbuilt Triangle Adept, allowing her to run a different A slot in it’s place, such as Mirror Stance 3.
  • Lull skills alongside the Quick Riposte sacred seal remain Cecilia’s ideal option, although Quick Riposte in the B slot can be run to good effect on a budget.
  • The same goes for Pulse Smoke: while effective, other skills such as Atk Smoke can be used effectively in its place.

Strengths

Cavalry

Cecilia’s status as a cavalier grants her access to class exclusive buffs and high movement, which she can take ample advantage of as a ranged cavalier.

Tome of Order

Cecilia’s Tome of Order functions as a refinable Raventome with Flier effective damage, letting her serve as a powerful counter to colorless, blue, and flying units alike.

Weaknesses

Lackluster Speed/Defense

Thanks to her underwhelming base Speed of 25, Cecilia requires heavy Speed investment to consistently perform follow-up attacks, and in conjunction with her low base 22 Defense leaves her extremely vulnerable to fast physical foes who will have very little trouble performing follow-up attacks against her and often KO’ing her in a single round.
