  • Sacred Seal: Spur SPD / Close Def

This build is focus on accepting with the reality of Sharena; a unit with limited merge potential. She need to make those that she engage on count. This is done by fully shutting down any sword unit that crosses her path using SwordBreaker, Triangle Adept and Moonbow. 

Due to her limited combat potential, this set focuses more on supporting the team by providing as much stats as possible solely from standing beside Sharena. The double spur speed combination allows for either more aggressive positioning for your main units due to preventing double attacks or outright doubling the opponent. The occasional Threaten ATK effect from Fensalir could also be somewhat utilised in a more support oriented build such as this one.

  • B Slot: Desperation
  • C Slot: Threaten Spd
  • Sacred Seal: Brash Assault

A somewhat self-explanatory set by focusing on killing everything she touches when below 50% health. While her ATK is not sky-high, it is good enough such that she can deal enough damage with the Luna activation. This set should be able to finish off all sword units and squishy archers / mages in a single strike, while gaining the ability to engage on lance units after reaching the Desperation range.

  • A Slot: Steady Breath / Distant Counter / Fury
  • B Slot: Quick Riposte 
  • C Slot: Varies in team
  • Sacred Seal: Close Def / Distant Def

Sharena's versatile stat distribution also enables her to run a set that focuses on being an enemy phase unit. While Fensalir is a decent weapon for such a unit, the refined Slaying Lance + provides much more utility for an enemy phase set for Sharena, allowing for either a retaliation Moonbow without Steady Breath, or a retaliation Bonfire with Steady Breath.

While technically Sharena can run a mixed bulk set using Berkut Lance + and Distant Counter, it is difficult to justify such a build due to the presence of Fjorm who already comes with the innate ability to do so.

Introduction

Sharena is one of the 3 starter Askrian trio in the game, and is the middle-ground between Alfonse and Anna in terms of stat distribution; decent ATK and SPD with good amount of physical bulk (DEF and HP). By design, she is focused on providing support while being somewhat competent in standard combat, however the age of unit is showing, as she is somewhat overshadowed by the recent releases of heroes.

The biggest issue with Sharena is that she has steep competition against another story unit which could be automatically obtained at 5-star, Fjorm.

Strengths
  • Askrian Trio. Frequently a bonus unit in Arena and occasionally in Tempest Trials. Never a bad investment to fully kit out Sharena.
  • Being a infantry lance unit with good amount of physical bulk meant that she can take down most swords except the hyper-offensive ones.
  • Decent offensive stat spread. Will be able to churn out good amount of damage when required.
Weaknesses
  • Middling SPD. With the recent releases of sword units being extreme speedy with high Firepower, Sharena is unable to avoid the double attacks from these speed demons.
  • Mediocre RES, which meant that mages could take her down with relative ease. Dragons match-ups are also shaky.
  • Fensalir is outdated for a legendary weapon. Most weapons from the forge will be outright better than Fensalir.
  • Limited merge potential. At higher merges of Arena, Sharena will a dead weight due to the opponent having huge amount of merge advantage.
Team Options

Sharena's glaring weakness is her low RES stat, which meant that she is prone to getting herself killed by most blue and green mages. Units such as Fae and Julia are able to cover this area of ineptitude by covering both the Green and Blue spectrum of mages. For more competitive scenarios such as Sharena, treat Sharena as just a fall-back combat unit and have a competent 3-man core.

Counters

Most green mages can outright erase Sharena in a single hit, while archers, blue mages and lances and even swords can kill her in a single engagement if they can outspeed Sharena. Be especially wary of hyper-offensive sword units such as Ayra and Mia, who possesses extremely high SPD and deadly specials that could even overcome the Triangle Disadvantage.
