Blade tomes, to this day, remains an incredibly potent option for offensive mages. Valentine’s Titania can absolutely put this weapon to great use.

What makes Blade tomes so powerful is that they take the total value of field buffs on the user and add it into their attack power. With a buff of six in each stat, a Blade tome will add a staggering 24 damage boost to attacks. As such, Valentine’s Titania with Rauðrblade can be extremely effective, especially since she can easily benefit from Cavalry Buffs. Assist is open to one’s personal preference. Reposition is a generally safe choice for cavaliers, but sticking with her default Swap is also perfectly fine. Since Blade tomes do decrease Special cooldown, she’ll ideally want one of the lower cooldown Specials such as Glimmer or Moonbow. Glimmer is recommended since it’s power is based off of dealt damage, making it a natural fit for Blade tomes.

In the A slot, Atk/Spd Solo is a fantastic choice, granting Valentine’s Titania with a huge offensive boost whenever she has no adjacent allies. Alternatively, Swift Sparrow is also an excellent choice, providing a lesser offensive boost than Atk/Spd Solo except it has a less stingy requirement in only needing Valentine’s Titania to initiate combat. For one on a budget, Fury is a great choice, granting Valentine’s Titania with an all-around combat boost at the cost of some recoil damage after any round of combat. Desperation is a cheap and perfect fitting B slot option, allowing Valentine’s Titania to make any follow-up attack immediately after her first when below 75% HP.

With the C slot and Sacred Seal slot, Valentine’s Titania can opt to give herself some self buffing through Odd Atk Wave and Even Def Wave. This allows her to gain +12 damage on odd turns +6 damage on even turns without any external support. However, if she can receive buffs from her allies, Wave skills are entirely unneeded. Her good Resistance allows Valentine’s Titania to make use of Ploy skills, particularly with Fury. She can also use a Cavalry Buff such as Hone Cavalry if she’s alongside other cavaliers. The Sacred Seal slot can be alternatively used for Darting Blow or a simple buff such as Atk/Spd 2 or Speed +3.

For not a lot of investment at all, Valentine’s Titania can be a surprising effective multipurpose unit, capable of fighting, buffing, and debuffing effectively all in one.

Valentine’s Titania’s default tome, Loyal Wreath, grants her with a nice all-around stat boost whenever she has an adjacent ally. This is a great weapon choice that enhances her weapon capabilities and needs not be swapped out, though one can do so if they feel another weapon would be more beneficial. If her chosen weapon can be refined, it is recommended to refine it for Speed or Resistance. Speed will help her to secure more follow-up attacks while Resistance will help her to resist magical attacks more easily while increasing the usability of Ploy skills.

The Assist will be a matter of player preference, though a movement Assist will need to be used with a Link skill. Valentine’s Titania comes by default with Swap and works nicely, but can be swapped out for one’s own preference. Reposition is a safe bet with most cavalry. For Special, using either Moonbow or Glimmer is recommended due to the low cooldown of these Specials allowing them to be used with good consistency. Iceberg is another valid choice thanks to Valentine’s Titania’s good Resistance.

Fury makes for a very fitting A slot choice, improving Valentine’s Titania’s all-around stats which naturally improves her offensive and debuffing capabilities. While Fury 4 is stronger than Fury 3, it is not necessary at all and Fury 3 will work absolutely fine. Atk/Spd Bond is another good option that synergises with Loyal Wreath, granting extra Attack and Speed whenever adjacent to an ally. Valentine’s Titania’s default Atk/Res Link is a great B slot choice for this build. Not only does it let her gain buffing utility through granting a large Attack and Resistance boost to whoever she uses a movement Assist on, but will also get the buff herself and this skill will still activate if it’s her ally which uses the movement Assist. If she’s providing buffs through her C slot, she could instead opt for a Chill skill such as Chill Spd to gain extra debuffing utility.

Last but not least, thanks to her strong Resistance, Valentine’s Titania can use her C slot and Sacred Seal slot to run double Ploy skills in order to gain debuffing utility. Which Ploy skills are used is entirely up to one’s own preference with all of them being available in both slots. Spd Ploy and Res Ploy in particular will both greatly benefit Valentine’s Titania herself, hence why they are the recommended choices. If she’s on a cavalry team, she can utilize a Cavalry buff such as Hone Cavalry in the C slot instead. As alternatives for the Sacred Seal, Distant Def will increase Valentine’s Titania’s ability to resist enemy mages while a simple stat boost such as Atk/Spd 2 will give her one last offensive boost.

Introduction

Titania has joined Ike and her fellow mercenaries in the celebrations for the Day of Devotion, sporting one beautiful dress and one absolutely killer smile. Valentine’s Titania is a red mage cavalry coming with good offensive stats and other noteworthy features.

Valentine’s Titania comes with good offensive capabilities and good Resistance at the cost of low HP and Defense. Statistically speaking, she is incredibly similar to Ursula. When compared to Ursula, Valentine’s Titania trades a little bit of Defense for a slight increase to her Attack and Speed. As such, they share a lot of the same strengths and weaknesses.

When compared to another red mage cavalier, namely SM Eirika, the drawbacks to Valentine’s Titania become more apparent. While SM Eirika only has one Attack and two Speed over Valentine’s Titania, she can acquire Assets and Flaws in order to increase her offensive capabilities much more substantially, not to mention that SM Eirika also has a personal weapon. What Valentine’s Titania does have over SM Eirika is extra utility through her much higher Resistance.

Regardless of any comparisons and when rated on her own merits, Valentine’s Titania is a strong unit. Mage cavaliers in general are typically strong thanks to their range and easy access to buffs, Valentine’s Titania being no exception to this. As the first easily obtainable red mage cavalier, Valentine’s Titania does not disappoint and she will be a great choice for a red mage.

Strengths

Good Offensive Stats

With 30 Attack and 33 Speed, Valentine’s Titania is not too shabby when used offensively. While neither stat is standout by any means, she can easily make use of various skills and buffs in order to increase her offensive capabilities substantially.

Good Resistance

At 30 Resistance, Valentine’s Titania is capable of resisting magic fairly well. She is capable of taking a couple of hits depending on the opponent, but one should not expect her to act as a magical wall since her low HP hinders her ability to tank magical hits for very long. On top of this, Valentine’s Titania can make good use of Ploy skills, adding to her ability to function as a support unit as well.

Cavalry Strengths

Cavalry in general have two distinct advantages to other movement types: movement range and ease of buff access. With a natural movement range of 3, Valentine’s Titania’s has amazing reach and can easily cross a large portion of a map in order to get into position or attack an opponent. On top of this, Cavalry Buffs are easily accessible and can be used to give Valentine’s Titania a quick, easy, and very effective boost to her combat capabilities.

Weaknesses

Poor Physical Bulk

With 35 HP and 17 Defense, Valentine’s Titania only possesses a physical bulk of 52 and is very susceptible to physical damage. She will also be vulnerable to dragons as they’ll target her Defense rather than her Resistance. It is advised to keep Valentine’s Titania out of the range of physical foes and dragons unless absolutely necessary.

Cavalry Weaknesses

Cavalry also have a fair share of weaknesses. Most notably, cavalry are hindered by terrain more than any other unit type, being completely unable to move through forests and being greatly hindered by trenches. Cavalry also suffer from the lowest BST of all movement types, resulting in them having lower stats overall and being a general poor choice for those looking to score highly in Arena.

Free Unit

With Valentine’s Titania being obtained from Tempest Trials, she can be a unit easily enjoyed by everyone. However, being free has its downsides. Namely, Valentine’s Titania has no access to Assets and Flaws, meaning she cannot optimize her statline any further than it currently is, though she can benefit well from a single merge. On top of this, while Valentine’s Titania will be able to be fully merged, it will require an extraordinary about of Heroic Grails to obtain enough copies to do so.

Team Options

Valentine’s Titania will be most at home alongside other cavaliers that will be able to support her with buffs. Outside of this, Titania will want strong allies that can protect her from her threats, such as blue foes.

  • Cavaliers: Valentine’s Titania will most benefit from a strong green cavalier ally that can keep her safe from blue threats. Gunnthrá, WT Olwen, and Valentine’s Mist are all good choices. A blue cavalier such as Reinhardt, Spring Catria, or Summer Cordelia will also make for a great partner. Plenty of strong colorless cavaliers also exist, such as Brave Veronica, Brave Lyn, and Summer Linde.

  • Refreshers: In an offensive oriented role, having a refresher will be a great boon to Valentine’s Titania. After she performs her action, she can be refreshed and can act again, whether that be to retreat, get into position for next turn, or attack again. Any refresher will make for a fine partner, but Leanne and Reyson are the most notable choices for Valentine’s Titania as both gain a movement range of 3 when transformed, giving them much greater reach compared to even the other flying refreshers.

  • Strong Green Fighters: Titania will appreciate any of the many other strong green fighters in order to keep her safe from blue opponents. Legendary Hector, Surtr, Brave Ephraim, Fallen Robin, Myrrh, and Adrift Corrin F are just a small handful of the strong green melee units to choose from. There are strong ranged options as well, such as Nino, SF Nino, and Halloween Kagero.

Counters

The easiest way to defeat Valentine’s Titania is through anyone that targets the Defense stat. While she can survive an attack from some green physical foes thanks to the Weapon Triangle advantage, she will be an easy target for blues and reds. Anyone who deals effective damage vs cavalry will also be a threat.

  • Strong Blue Fighters: Brave Hector, Winter Ephraim, Nephenee, and Hardin is just a small handful of physical blue units that will be able to easily handle Valentine’s Titania. Blue mages such as Reinhardt, Ophelia, and Micaiah will also be able to easily get through her good Resistance. There are also prominent blue dragon threats such as Legendary Tiki and Adrift Corrin M

  • Strong Red Fighters: The red color also possesses many threats. Physically, there are units such as Zelgius, Karla, Legendary Marth, and Legendary Ryoma that provide substantial threats. Hoshidan Summer Micaiah is also an issue thanks to her cavalry effective weapon. Red also has strong dragons such as Halloween Myrrh and Adult Tiki.

  • Archers: If allowed to get the attack on her, many archers will be able to cut through Titania’s poor physical bulk and easily KO her. Halloween Jakob, Brave Lyn, Summer Takumi, and Legendary Lucina all possess amazing offensive capabilities and will be able to handle Valentine’s Titania with little issue.
