Introduction

Pros:

  • Powerful and versatile support abilities
  • Fits onto many teams

Cons:

  • Low defenses

Olivia is a Red Sword user, who brings utility to the team through her Attack buff and her Dance. She is a powerful F2P unit who can multiply the potential of any member of your team. She is a mostly one-dimensional unit, sending someone in with an attack buff and dancing to give them a second turn. Her ranking reflects the power of Dance combined with powerful attackers.

Strengths/Weaknesses

Olivia’s primary team role is that of a dancer. With her support skill Dance she can grant any ally a second turn to attack, move or use one of their own skills. The true power of Dance lies in its versatility; each game, you can assess the enemy team and decide which unit to use it on. Depending on the enemy team composition and map your most valuable unit will change from round to round. But Olivia allows you to double that unit’s effectiveness, no matter who they are. This is a staggering advantage to have in any round. While her defenses are on the low side, she has enough Speed to avoid being double attacked by most units in the game, and will usually survive a round of combat. Her Attack stat is reasonable, and she can help with damage from time to time if need be. However, it will nearly always be better for her to Dance for a stronger unit.

Team Options

Her best team-mates are those who can make the best use of two turns; Offensive powerhouses. Abel, Cordelia and Camilla all make great use of Hone Atk on top of Olivia’s dance. Kagero is perhaps her best partner, as she covers a huge portion of the cast with her Infantry slaying weapon. Dance support allows her to KO nearly the entire cast of characters in one turn. Even if Olivia dances for someone else, Hone Atk lets her score bonus OHKO’s on Lyn, Tharja, Takumi and opposing Olivia. Powerful ranged attackers Takumi and Linde also make great partners. Olivia can benefit from many different natures, but a Speed boosting one will allow her to survive a round of combat with Linde. Dance is not affected by stats, so she will function well with any nature.

Counters

The effects of her Dance ability are difficult to counter, but can be worked around with extra caution. In terms of combat, she is easily dispatched of by most blue units.
