Priscilla sits at an average 29 speed and is naturally vulnerable to many follow-up attacks from popular sword and tome users.

The popular healer's choice, +Speed / -Attack IV set is utilized to increase her survivability against speedy units while keeping her neutral defenses intact.

Though with the inclusion of Wrathful Staff, +Attack / -HP should be taken to maximize her attack.

Skill Sets
Wrathful Jealousy (Colourless Mage)
Optimal
Assault A Attack +3
Rehabilitate B Wrathful Staff 3
Still-Water Balm C Hone Cavalry

SP Cost1,240

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

The basic Colourless Mage set.

All attack buffs along Wrathful Staff are used to access the neutral magical damage.

Assault, Panic and Gravity are chosen depending on the player's choice:

  • Assault is raw damage
  • Panic has 3 less Mt than Assault but can reverse buffs
  • Gravity has 4 less Mt than Assault but can be potentially overpowered with the right team composition.

It's a given that this set will be outstanding if affected by Hone Cavalry.

Due to the lack of any defensive passives, extreme caution should be taken when utilizing your healer for anything but magical baiting.

Sacred Delicacy (Standard Healer)
Budget
Panic A Speed +3
Rehabilitate B Live to Serve 2
Heavenly Light C Hone Cavalry

SP Cost1,175

  • 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.

Jealous Envy (Offensive Healer)
Budget
Slow A Speed +3
Martyr B Swordbreaker 3
Still-Water Balm C Ward Cavalry

SP Cost1,155

  • Preferred Nature: +Speed / -Attack
  • Weapon: Slow / Pain / Fear
  • Assist: Martyr
  • Special: Still-Water Balm / Flexible
  • A Slot: Speed +3
  • B Slot: Swordbreaker
  • C Slot: Ward Cavalry / Varies on team
  • Sacred Seal: Speed +1

The healers' Martyr kit.

This set is a lot more offensive than the other builds to allow Priscilla to get wounded, all to power Martyr.

Swordbreaker used because the sword users contain the most speedy heroes, and Martyr will keep its potency due to Live to Serve not fully healing Priscilla.

Introduction

Pros:

  • Good magical bulk
  • On a horse
  • Could act as a pseudo-mage

Cons:

  • Physically frail
  • Low speed makes her vulnerable to follow-ups

Priscilla the Delicate Princess is a mounted healer with stats very similar to Maria.

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

Her attack is right below 30 at 29 and she could be used as a pseudo-mage, though weaker than 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 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/Weaknesses

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
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.

"Sacred Delicacy" is for those seeking a standard healer: Requiring protection, staying safe and keeping the frontline healthy.

"Jealous Envy" is an offensive Martyr set utilizing Priscilla as a debuffer and chipper.

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.
