+IV

  • Bridal Cordelia has some of the best speed of the archers, and the +Speed boon is recommended for both preventing follow-ups and performing them.

-IV

  • In order to equalize her defenses and give her an equal amount of damage soak, a -Resistance bane is advised to avoid lowering her defense.

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Resistance
  • Weapon: Firesweep Bow+
  • Assist: Dual Rally (Arena Score) / Player's choice
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Life & Death / Fury
  • B Slot: Swordbreaker / Player's choice
  • C Slot: Threaten Defense / Threaten Speed / Attack Smoke
  • Sacred Seal: Attack Smoke / Speed +3

A build focused on using the Firesweep Bow+, negating any possible counterattacks from Distant Counter units, mages, staves, or other archers.

Speed is focused to guarantee Cordelia follows up against any unit she faces, bringing her speed up to 43. Should you want more speed, the Speed +3 Seal can be run for 46 points in its stat.

Fury is a great alternative if you'd like to give Cordelia more bulk, but this is only recommended with the Speed +3 Seal. Her speed becomes 42 with this choice.

Luna is Cordelia's best special skill, as there really isn't any other skill that gives her a bigger spike in damage.

Swordbreaker is taken due to the abundance of very fast myrmidons (Ayra, Mia), but this slot can be outfitted with whatever you players would like.

Attack Smoke is recommended (whether it be C slot or Seal) to Cordelia more bulk after initiating an attack, effectively reducing Life & Death's penalty. (Since it reduces defenses by 5, and Attack Smoke reduces attack by 5.)

Finally, Threaten Defense grants Cordelia more damage against melee units, while Threaten Speed guarantees more doubles. Both of these skills improve Cordelia's match-ups, but the latter is ineffective against Armoured teams.

  • Weapon: Brave Bow+
  • Assist: Dual Rally (Arena Score) / Player's choice
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Life & Death
  • B Slot: Desperation
  • C Slot: Threaten Defense
  • Sacred Seal: Speed +3 / Attack Smoke

The Brave Bow set, rigged with everything speed-related to ensure Cordelia quads and kills anything in her way so long as Desperation is active.

Speed is emphasized in this build, with her C slot being Threaten Defense to grant 10 more damage (20 if a quad) to any melee unit.

Her Seal slot is used for Speed +3 to prevent follow-ups, but if bulk is your concern, Attack Smoke can be taken.

Budget: Breath of Life 3
SP1,320SAtk Smoke 3

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Resistance
  • Weapon: Cupid Arrow+ (Spd)
  • Assist: Dual Rally (Arena Score) / Player's choice
  • Special: Luna
  • A Slot: Fury
  • B Slot: Quick Riposte
  • C Slot: Speed Smoke / Player's choice
  • Sacred Seal: Attack Smoke

A rather budget set focusing on utility, flexibility, and support.

Speed is emphasized in this set to prevent Cordelia from being doubled, as her damage soaking potential is quite good. As such, Fury and the +Speed IV are taken to accomodate that.

Speed Smoke can further emphasize this, but it is completely optional. On the other hand, Attack Smoke is recommended as her Seal to give her even more chances of survival.

Cupid Arrow+ (Spd) emphasizes speed even further. It is combined with Quick Riposte to not only bait and kill 2-range units, but to buff her team during the battle.

Introduction

Pros:

  • The best absolute best offense among archers
  • Great defensive soak, allowing her to live fights

Cons:

  • Requires heavy investment to melt faces

Cordelia, the Perfect Bride, is a perfect waifu.

But really, she is one of the best units in the game due to her incredible offensive prowess, great speed, and enough defenses and resistance to survive attacks that come her way, unlike a certain magic that is everything.

There is really no downside to Bridal Cordelia other than the fact that she is quite expensive to build, but even that is easily overcome.

If you pull her, you will love your time with her. The perfect bride.

Strengths
  • Ridiculous offense

    • With 35 attack and 35 speed, the Brave Bow will wreck havoc, the Firesweep Bow will wreck havoc, everything will wreck havoc.
  • Great damage soak

    • A neutral Bridal Cordelia's enemy will need either 55 physical or 58 magical attack to one-shot her, which is quite a difficult requirement to meet without the use of Life & Death or multiple merges.
Weaknesses
  • No bulk whatsoever
    • If Cordelia participates in more than one skirmish per turn, expect her to dwindle down and apply for a divorce.
    • It will take two hits of 37 physical attack or 40 magical attack to cut ties with her.
Team Options

Bridal Cordelia's Brave Bow and Firesweep set both beg to be put alongside a Dancer. Whichever one it is, it doesn't matter.

If using her Cupid Arrow+, she can work quite well in a Spur-based or enemy-phase team, giving them 5 defense and resistance if she baits an enemy.

Finally, three heroines in particular stand out as excellent allies to archers:

If you would like to give her more leeway for quad-strikes, a Dazzling Slow Healer will help her greatly with that.

Another interesting combination is pairing her with a Ninja with Smoke Dagger+, as the debuff to all stats can give Cordelia the necessary leverage to kill the entire team.

Counters

It is quite difficult to kill Cordelia in one shot, but any hero/heroine emphasized on attack such as Eliwood or Brave Roy have the potential to one-shot her, so be wary.

She also can't handle follow-ups whatsoever, so multiple skirmishes will easily beat her.
