Boons

  • +SPD: Speed makes for a fantastic choice of boon, as it allows her to maximize her damage output by securing additional follow-up attacks. This is particularly effective when using a Blade tome.

  • +ATK: Attack is another solid choice of boon, as it further increases her raw damage. In particular, this can be more effective against slower opponents with high bulk.

Neutral

  • DEF: Despite its low base value, Camilla prefers to keep her Defense intact in order to better survive a single counterattack from non-green physical opponents.

  • HP: A bane in HP is comparable to a bane in Defense but takes away from her overall bulk, making it even more desirable to keep neutral than the aforementioned.

Banes

  • -RES: Resistance is Camilla’s weakest stat and the best bane that she can receive, as dropping it further is the least detrimental to her overall performance.

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred IV: +SPD or +ATK / -RES

  • Weapon: Blárblade+

  • Assist: Ardent Sacrifice / Reposition

  • Special: Glimmer / Moonbow

  • Passive A: Swift Sparrow / Life and Death / Fury

  • Passive B: Desperation

  • Passive C: Hone Fliers / Guidance / Flexible

  • Sacred Seal: Guidance / Heavy Blade / Attack +3 / Speed +3

As with most Blade tome users, Speed is Camilla’s most important stat. This makes a boon in it the choice nature in order to maximize her damage output by securing additional follow-up attacks. A boon in Attack also makes for a suitable choice, as it increases her raw damage output. This makes it a more effective choice against slower bulkier opponents. In particular, this can potentially be the deciding factor in her matchup against Fallen Male Robin.

For her Assist, Ardent Sacrifice has great synergy with Desperation. Camilla’s lacking overall bulk can make her susceptible to getting killed in only one hit by both physical and magical damage. By dropping her HP without the need to engage in combat, she can safely get into Desperation’s 75% HP threshold. Otherwise, any choice of movement skill such as Reposition will make for a suitable Assist.

Glimmer is a great choice of Special on any Blade tome user, as it scales with the additional damage received from Hone/Fortify buffs and activates within a reasonable timeframe despite the cooldown penalty tied to Blade tomes. Alternatively, Moonbow can be used as a more effective option against opponents with high Resistance such as Lute and Female Morgan.

Moving on to main skills, Swift Sparrow makes for a premium choice of A skill by providing a strong boost to Camilla’s offensive stats on initiation without losing anything else.  A higher risk higher reward option is Life and Death, boosting her offensive stats even higher at the cost of severely damaging her overall bulk. This makes her even more susceptible to getting OHKO’d by both physical and magic damage alike. Finally, Fury makes for another solid choice by making it easier to get into Desperation range as well as increasing her overall bulk at the cost of a marginally weaker offense.

Desperation is the key to any glass cannon mage; once in the HP range, Camilla will be able to safely double her opponent without the risk of getting killed on the counterattack. Hone Fliers is a great C skill option, as it allows Camilla to be a benefactor on a flier-centric team where she is most effective on. Guidance makes for another great choice on mixed team compositions by providing movement support to both infantry and armored teammates. Otherwise, the C slot can be replaced as needed to suit the team.

Last but not least, Camilla has several options for Sacred Seals. If she isn’t already utilizing Guidance in her C slot, it can also be run in the Sacred Seal slot. Heavy Blade is another option with a consistent activation thanks to the damage scaling property of Blade tomes. This allows Camilla to activate her Special more frequently. Finally, both Speed +3 and Attack +3 make for good picks in order to give Camilla a solid offensive stat boost.

Show Explanation/Analysis
  • Preferred IV: +SPD or +ATK / -RES

  • Weapon: Juicy Wave+

  • Assist: Ardent Sacrifice / Reposition

  • Special: Moonbow / Luna

  • Passive A:  Swift Sparrow / Life and Death / Fury

  • Passive B: Chill Spd / Chill Res

  • Passive C: Hone Fliers / Guidance / Tactic passives / Flexible

  • Sacred Seal: Flier Formation / Guidance / Tactic passives

In exchange for the sheer offensive power of a Blade tome, his build looks to give Camilla an additional role as a strong support unit by making use of her native weapon, Juicy Wave. Overall, this set bears many similarities to a purely offensive one with a few notable changes. Without the damage-scaling property of a Blade tome, Camilla prefers Specials that scale with her opponent’s Resistance such as Moonbow or Luna.

Having Desperation built into her weapon, Camilla has the freedom to run other skills in her B slot such as Chills. Both Chill Spd and Chill Res make for great choices by increasing both Camilla’s damage output as well as the overall support she can provide to her team. While Chill Res can massively increase magic damage against the affected target, it is not always consistent. This is due to it targeting the unit with the highest Resistance and not necessarily the unit with the highest magic bulk.

Class-exclusive buffs such as Hone Fliers remains coveted when running Camilla alongside other fliers. By combining this with the Flier Formation Sacred Seal for more ease of movement, Camilla can serve as a flexible support and combatant on a flier-centric team. On a mixed team composition, Camilla can instead run Guidance in order to give her allies better mobility. This can be combined with one’s choice of Tactic to also provide a solid stat boost.

Introduction

Camilla finally finishes the Weapon Triangle with her fourth iteration as a blue mage flier.

Statwise, Camilla sports all the makings of a strong offensive mage. With 33 Attack and 36 Speed at base, Camilla excels at taking out her opponents in a single round of combat. In particular, she makes for a phenomenal Blade tome user. By retaining her flier status, not only does she have an innate advantage when it comes to mobility, Camilla also has access to powerful class-exclusive buffs such as Hone Fliers.

Camilla’s weakness is her poor overall bulk of 62 physical and 59 magical. While she generally can take at least one hit from opponents that don’t have the Weapon Triangle advantage over her, by no means is she able to survive continuous combat without relying on Desperation in order to avoid counterattacks.

Regardless, Camilla holds all the traits of a strong glass cannon. Her well-distributed statline, superior mobility, and access to class-exclusive buffs make her one of the strongest offensive mages around.  

Strengths

Fantastic Offenses

Camilla’s high-end 33/36 offensive spread make her an incredible offensive nuker and a choice Blade tome user.

Just Enough Bulk

Although Camilla is by no means a tank, she has just enough physical and magical bulk to survive at least one counterattack from most non-green opponents.

Flier

In addition to her superior mobility, Camilla has access to class-exclusive buffs such as Hone Fliers.

Weaknesses

Vulnerable to Effective Damage

Camilla’s status as a flier comes with its disadvantages. Her innate weakness to bows coupled with her lacking physical bulk makes her a prime target for archers.

Team Options

First and foremost, Camilla highly appreciates having flier teammates that can provide with powerful buffs such as Hone Fliers, particularly when using a Blade tome. Due to her poor overall bulk, Camilla also enjoys both physically and magically bulky allies that can tank the hits for her. As with most offense-oriented units, she also enjoys Refresher support. Finally, Camilla likes having red allies that can cover her Weapon Triangle disadvantage.

  • Fliers: Elincia, Summer Tana, Shigure, New Years Azura, and Legendary Robin all make for fantastic teammates by providing Camilla with powerful buffs such as Hone Fliers and Fortify Fliers while keeping up with her unhindered movement.

  • Physically Bulky Units: Hector, Zelgius, Lukas, Adult Tiki, and Myrrh are all strong allies, as they can tank physical hits while keeping Camilla safe.

  • Magically Bulky Units: Camilla also enjoys having teammates that can tank magical damage for her such as Sheena, Julia, Deirdre, Lute, Fallen Hardin, and Winter Tharja.

  • Refreshers: As with any offensive unit, Camilla will appreciate refresher support in order to continue her onslaught or move out of enemy range. Olivia, Lene, Bridal Ninian, Performing Azura all make for fantastic options.

  • Strong Reds: Summer Tiki, Lilina, Alm, Ayra, and Legendary Ike all perform well in checking both physical and magical greens that may pose a threat to Camilla.

Counters

Camilla’s greatest weakness are strong green opponents. Both physical and magical greens can easily take Camilla’s out in only one hit due to Camilla’s deficient overall bulk. Magically bulky green units also pose a major threat, as they will be able to tank Camilla’s attacks while dealing significant damage in return. Finally, Camilla’s status as a flier unit also gives her an innate weakness to opponents wielding flier-effective weapons.

  • Strong Green Attackers: Powerful green attackers such as Raven, Nino, Hector, and those who deal adaptive damage such as Fallen MRobin can all make short work of Camilla.

  • Magically Bulky Greens: Sheena, Halloween Henry, Winter Lissa, and Fae can all wall off Camilla’s damage thanks to their high Resistance and Weapon Triangle advantage.

  • Buff Ignoring Skills: Julia and Deirdre can also mitigate Camilla’s damage output by ignoring Hone/Fortify buffs that she receives with Divine Naga. This also applies to any unit running the skill Dull Ranged.

  • Effective Weapons: Archers such as Brave Lyn, Halloween Jakob, Hinoka (WF), and Bridal Cordelia won’t even break a sweat shooting Camilla of the sky. This also applies to Merric whose personal tome, Excalibur, also does effective damage against fliers.
