Key stats worth increasing through nature if possible.
Complementary stats that matter, but not to the point of picking them over key stats for nature increase.
Relatively worthless stat that can safely be decreased through nature.

+IV

  • If using a Wrathful Staff build, +Attack must be taken.
  • Sitting at 29 speed, a +Speed is mandatory if using a Hone Speeder or Hone Cavalry buff.
  • Should the player run Hone Cavalry and believes Priscilla's speed is good as-is, a +HP boon can be taken to increase her overall bulk, not to mention its 4 stat increase rather than the usual 3.

-IV

  • Should Priscilla ignore Wrathful Staff, Cavalry Buffs, and her pretty good attack stat to use her for supportive purposes, -Attack is an absolute must.
  • Otherwise, a -Resistance bane will put her magical damage soak from 68 to 65, which isn't a big difference.
Skill Sets
Sparkly Princess (Dazzling Staff)
Optimal
Panic A HP +5
Rehabilitate B Dazzling Staff 3
Still-Water Balm C Spur Def 3
SP950S-

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Resistance
  • Weapon: Panic / Candlelight / Slow / Fear
  • Healing Skill: Rehabilitate / Flexible
  • Special: Still-Water Balm/ Flexible
  • A Slot: HP +5 / Speed +3 / Fortress Defense
  • B Slot: Dazzling Staff
  • C Slot: Spur Defense / Flexible
  • Sacred Seal: HP +3

The Dazzling Staff build, used to counter Distant Counter units and even neuter ranged heroes.

Panic is taken to reliably debuff the enemy Blade Mage or Movement-Buffed hero (a Hone Buffed Reinhardt, for instance). Of course, other staves are equally good depending on player preference.

The HP +5 passive is taken to increase Priscilla's overall survival, though Speed +3 is recommended if one wishes to deny follow-ups from reaching her. Fortress Defense is also a nice option, increasing her low defense and allowing Priscilla to take a hit from physical units.

Wrathful Jealousy (Wrathful)
Assault A Attack +3
Rehabilitate B Wrathful Staff 3
Kindled-Fire Balm C Hone Cavalry
SP1,315S-

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Attack / -HP
  • Weapon: Assault / Panic / Gravity
  • Assist: Rehabilitate / Martyr / Recover
  • Special: Kindled-Fire Balm / Flexible
  • A Slot: Attack +3
  • B Slot: Wrathful Staff
  • C Slot: Hone Cavalry / Flexible
  • Sacred Seal: Attack +1

The standard Wrathful Staff build, and highly recommended to be used in range of a Hone Cavalry buffer.

Priscilla yields a respectable speed stat, though it isn't amazing. Therefore, the attack passive and IV is chosen to maximize her decent attack.

Assault is taken for its pure, raw damage, though other alternatives such as Panic or Candlelight can be used instead if one prefers to carry a debuff in the staff.

Sacred Delicacy (Standard Healer)
Panic A Speed +3
Rehabilitate B Live to Serve 2
Heavenly Light C Hone Cavalry
SP1,175S-

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Attack
  • Weapon: Panic / Assault
  • Assist: Rehabilitate / Recover
  • Special: Heavenly Light / Flexible
  • A Slot: Speed +3
  • B Slot: Live to Serve 2
  • C Slot: Hone Cavalry / Varies on team
  • Sacred Seal: Speed +1

The standard Rehabilitate healing set focusing on healing a massive amount of HP to near-death allies while granting Priscilla some self-sustain.

Recover can be used if the player leans towards consistency.

Assault can be used instead of Panic to fully utilize her attack stat amidst fellow cavaliers.

Introduction

Pros:

  • Great overall stats
  • Access to Cavalry Buffs

Cons:

  • BST comparable to Cavalry Mages
  • Naturally physically frail
  • Barely-30 speed stat makes her vulnerable to merged speedy units whom oft sit at 40 speed

Priscilla the Delicate Princess is a mounted healer with stats similar to Maria barring her Speed stat and BST penalty.

Her magical resistance and HP are quite nice for a healer, allowing for good amount of soak.

Her attack sits at a pretty good 29 and can be used to deal a good amount of damage like Elise.

The delicate princess's low speed is and low defense are her weak points, causing her to be vulnerable to follow-up attacks from the popular and speedy Linde, Nino, Lucina and Ryoma.

Despite all of her flaws, Priscilla could be used in a cavalry team to fix all of her weakness of low speed and low defense while furthering her magical resistance and potential as an attacker.

Overall, Priscilla is a flexible mounted staff user with stats similar to Maria though with lower speed, making her a great healer to have on your team. However, "Horse Emblem" turns her excellent.

Strengths
  • Great magical soak
    • It will take a magical unit 68 attack to one-shot her.
    • Reinhardt and Olwen will require 50 attack to kill her.
  • Respectable attack
    • While 29 attack is quite average for a healer, she has potential to act as a pseudo-mage thanks to Cavalry Buffs.
  • Mounted
    • All of her weaknesses will be lifted thanks to Cavalry buffs.
    • Coupled with Wrathful Staff, Elise will be dealing a scary amount of damage.
Weaknesses
  • Physically Frail
    • Just like Maria, Priscilla will require 55 attack from a physical unit to fall on her knees.
    • Brave Weapon users will require 37 attack.
  • Average Speed
    • At 29 speed, Priscilla will be doubled by popular units such as Ryoma, Lucina, and the commonly seen Blade Mages.
Team Options

Healers are used excellently on teams wanting to stay at full HP for one reason or another, and defensive or enemy-phase-centric teams pair quite well with the staff users.

However, due to Priscilla's horse, she will fit right in among fellow cavaliers.

"Wrathful Jealousy" is the build utilizing Wrathful Staff and is highly recommended in Cavalry teams, although it works in a general all-purpose team, too.

"Sparkly Princess" is the Dazzling Staff build focused on debuffing the enemy without fear of retaliation, such as attacking an enemy Ryoma or Linde with the Panic or Fear staff.

"Sacred Delicacy" is the standard healing build focusing on survival and healing her allies.

Counters

Healers fall to physical attacks, and Priscilla is no exception. The delicate princess will black out if faced with Brave Weapons or Wolf tomes.
