Flora Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (16) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (22) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) No Spd IV ★★☆☆☆
Def (5) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (10) No Res IV ★★★☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Atk/-Spd

Flora's best IVs are hands down +Atk and -Spd. Her weapon allows her to score follow-up attacks on specific units and her Spd is very unreliable so its best to rely solely on Atk to take out foes. Because of this, Flora is best taking a bane in Spd.

Arena Flora

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This build aims to give Flora the highest score possible in the Arena with her refined weapon. A budget option if you have no Ruptured Sky or Blue Flame (both will score the same while also having very low cooldowns), is to use Aether, however keep in mind that it will still take some time before Flora can trigger it. You can also opt for R Duel Infantry on her A slot to score more.

Refined FloraHOT

Special Skill IconIceberg

How to Use, Explanation

This is a general build using Flora's refined weapon. Leaning into her Special acceleration, we'll take advantage of her weapon, Quickened Pulse, and Time's Pulse 3 for her to trigger it on the first turn. Afterwards, Special Spiral 3 will ensure she triggers it again and again whenever she attacks.

Flora Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Flora's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). If unit initiates combat, grants Def+20 to unit during combat, and also, if foe can counter, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack. 【Dagger 7】
If unit initiates combat or is within 2 spaces of an ally, inflicts Atk/Def-5 on foe and inflicts Special cooldown charge -1 on foe per attack during combat. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.)
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Hoarfrost Knife

Hoarfrost Knife's refine gives Atk/Def-5 on Flora's target and will also apply Special cooldown charge -1 on them. This means that while Flora can trigger her Special sooner, her target will be unable to trigger their own.

We recommend getting this refine as Flora can potentially one-shot an enemy unit by debuffing them and also firing off her Special.

Flora is a ranged magic attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Res stat.

Flora Strengths

Huge Def buff when attacked by a melee foe

In addition to accelerating her special trigger and the normal dagger debuff effect, Hoarfrost Knife grants Flora +20 Def when she initiates combat against any melee foe. If said foe can counterattack, she makes a guaranteed follow-up attack. That is a huge buff that completely balances her defenses when attacking. This makes her a good match-up for dragonstone users that commonly have adapative damage that can exploit Flora's low Def.

Adaptive damage is when the enemy uses the lower of a foe's Def or Res. In Flora's case without Hoarfrost Knife, if she gets counterattacked by a unit with adaptive damage, she will most likely be taken out because her Def is at a pitiful 18.

Guaranteed Follow-up attacks against specific units

If Flora initiates combat against a foe who can counterattack, she makes a guaranteed follow-up attack. This means that she can score follow-up attacks on almost every ranged unit regardless of Spd. This also means the same for melee units that have weapons like Ragnell or Alondite

Solid Enemy Phase Capabilities

Flora has access to Quick Riposte 3 which means as long as she is at 70% HP or above, she will score a follow-up attack when attacked in the enemy phase. This means she has means of scoring follow-up attacks on both phases. This further justifies our recommendation for a +Atk IV!

Good Solo Unit

Atk/Res Solo 3 grants +6 to Atk/Res when Flora is not adjacent to allies. This adds to her offensive and defensive ability making her a good match-up to many magic-using foes.

Hoarfrost Knife's refine slows down Specials and debuffs enemy units

Hoarfrost Knife's refine activates when Flora initiates combat or is within 2 spaces of an ally. She will inflict Atk/Def-5 on an enemy unit and will also inflict Special cooldown charge-1 on them per attack.

This means that not only can she potentially one-shot them because of her accelerated Special and the debuffs she's applying, but also take less damage due to slowing down her opponent's Special and decreasing their Atk.

Flora Weaknesses

Weak against ranged physical units in the enemy phase

Because the +20 Def is only granted in the player phase, Flora's Def only sits at 18 when attacked in the enemy phase. This makes her extremely vulnerable to dagger and bow users. Be mindful of this and keep her away from ranged physical units!

Weak against adaptive damage in the enemy phase

For the same reasons that she is weak to dagger and bow users, she will be weak to dragonstone users with adaptive damage in the enemy phase as well. Try to take them out in the player phase as to not to have threats against Flora in enemy phases!

Flora as a Source Hero

Flora Avatar

Value of Skills ★★★★☆

Inheriting Atk/Res Solo 3

Flora can be used to inherit the skill Atk/Res Solo 3. However, Flora is one of the few red dagger units in the game. This allows her to fill-in specific niches in your team compositions. We recommend training and building her instead.

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
I serve my liege Corrin as a maid, but maybe I’ll offer my services to Prince Alfonse and Princess Sharena, too.
I was taken as a hostage to keep the Ice Tribe from rebelling. Despite this, I really did grow to like that place…
If you find yourself too busy, please allow me to share in your burden. I’m more than used to all sorts of tasks.
To be honest, I never feel quite right unless my hands are busy with some chore.
I was just out gathering some wild plants. Would you like a cup of herbal tea? If you have the time, that is.
I had some spare time, so I made this small figurine from snow. Those of us from the Ice Tribe can create snow.
Hmm... Maybe next time I’ll create a figurine of a certain Summoner...

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
Ah, {Summoner}. Did you need me for something? If you’re tired, I’ll prepare a cup of warm tea.
I apologize if I seem overattentive at times, but when I see you, I feel so compelled to take care of you.
For some reason, you remind me of my liege, Corrin... Isn’t that strange? You do not resemble one another.
Maybe it’s because you both maintain a rather mysterious air... Or that you both spend so much time with me.
Why is that, anyway? There are many other Heroes you could give your attention to, yet you’ve chosen me.
But please don’t think me unappreciative of our time together. Quite the opposite, in fact.
I feel like I can be myself when I’m with you. You make me feel like I’m truly worth something.
But most importantly...I can be completely honest and express my true feelings for you...
