Legendary Lilina Skills at 5★

Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). At the start of turn 1, grants Special cooldown count-1 to unit. At start of combat, if unit’s HP ≥ 25%, grants Atk/Res+6 during combat and disables unit’s and foe’s skills that change attack priority.

Cooldown Count = 2
Before combat this unit initiates, foes in an area near target take damage equal to 0.8 x (unit’s Atk minus foe’s Def or Res).

If unit is not adjacent to an ally, grants Atk/Res +7 during combat.

At start of turn, if any foe’s Res ≤ unit’s Res-3 and that foe is adjacent to another foe, inflicts Res-7 on that foe through its next action.

Inflicts Special cooldown count+1 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target after combat.
(No effect on Special cooldown counts already at maximum.)

Legendary Lilina Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (26) Attack Boon ★★★★★
Spd (6) No Spd IV ★★☆☆☆
Def (3) Def Bane ★★☆☆☆
Res (7) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk/-Def

The best IVs for Legendary Lilina are +Atk and -Def. A +Atk IV adds to her best asset, her very high Atk stat. It will increase the damage she deals through her attacks and her Special skill, Gifted Magic. On the defensive side, she can take lots of magic attacks as her Res is very high. However, her Def stat is abysmally low and it is not worth investing on so you might as well take it as her bane.

Sacred Seal IconAttack +3

See Explanation and Source Heroes

How to Use, Explanation

This is a build that uses little skill inheritance. Atk + 3 as the Sacred Seal will increase her attack, allowing for a harder hitting Special. Keep in mind that using a Seal like Death Blow will not be calculated alongside her Special.

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

As a Legendary Hero, you will gain a Fire Blessing when summoning Legendary Lilina. Additionally, being a Fire-type Legendary Hero means that during Fire Seasons, other allies with a Water Blessing will receive HP+3 when they appear in battle with Legendary Lilina, and Lilina's total stats will be treated as 180. This will lead to a higher Arena Score.

Legendary Lilina Strengths

Possesses powerful AoE nuke that can be activated in the first turn

Legendary Lilina Special.png

Legendary Lilina's Gifted Magic is an AoE nuke seen above and it can deal lots of damage if Lilina is able to stack tons of Atk versus the target's defensive stats. The best part about it is that she can activate it during her first attack of the match! This is because of the following reasons:

  • Gifted Magic only has a cooldown of 2.
  • Studied Forblaze accelerates Special trigger by 1 count at all times.
  • Studied Forblaze accelerates Special trigger by an additional 1 count at the start of the first turn.

This means that you can take out a priority target at the start of the match which is very important in the Arena where Legendary Lilina will be most likely run.

One thing to keep in mind when running her base kit is the damage of Gifted Magic is calculated before battle starts, this means that Atk/Res Solo 4's bonus Atk would not participate in the calculation. To maximize the damage dealt by Gifted Magic, we recommend inheriting a skill like Life and Death 4 as it grants raw stats that are present during damage calculation.

Disables skills that change attack priority

Studied Forblaze disables unit's and foe's skills that change attack priority if Lilina is at least at 25% HP. This is very useful as it prevents Gifted Magic from accidentally triggering hostile Vantage 3 effects.

Casts a penalty on adjacent foes

She learns the skill Sabotage Res, which can inflict Res -7 on foes whose Res is 3 or more points lower than her own when that foe is adjacent to another foe. It can be difficult to trigger, but when active, the extra damage dealt can often be used to take down an foe in just one hit. Since Gifted Magic also takes into consideration the foe's defensive stats, a succesful Sabotage Res 3 activation will increase its damage too

This is great in Aether Raids as many Aether Keep layouts keep defense units very near each other. It is also great in some Arena maps where units will be forced to bundle up in tight spots.

Pulse Smoke 3 Delays Enemy Special Cooldown

Pulse Smoke 3 inflicts special cooldown count +1 on the target and all foes within 2 spaces of said foe. It is a powerful skill as it affects a big area. This makes Lilina a direct counter to teams relying on skills such as Infantry Pulse.

As Legendary Lilina is a ranged cavalry unit with great mobility, it makes it very easy for her to inflict Pulse Smoke on ideal areas. Though she is quite fragile in the physical end so make sure that her allies are ready to swoop in and finish the job.

Legendary Lilina Weaknesses

Gifted Magic is weaker than other AoE specials

Gifted Magic deals less damage compared to other AoE nukes like Growing Thunder. Although it has the perk of only having a 2 count cooldown. Make sure to increase Lilina's Atk as much as possible or inflict as much debuffs on the foe's defensive stats to increase her damage.

Low Spd

Legendary Lilina's Spd only sits at 21 at Lv.40. This makes her susceptible to follow-up attacks. It also makes it easy for units like Freyja to reduce damage taken from her using Spd-based damage reduction skills.

Low Def

Legendary Lilina's Def only sits at 16 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for physical units to take her out. Be mindful of Lilina's positioning in relation to physical units that can easily take her out.

Weak to Cavalry Effective Weapons

Legendary Lilina takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Ridersbane or Rauðrwolf+, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to takeher down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Refresher-assist units that can boost Legendary Lilina's offensive output

The Álfr, Peony, Triandra, Plumeria, Mirabilis, are examples of refresher-assist units that greatly boosts Legendary Lilina's damage output. They also possess flying movement, which can keep up with Lilina's movement because of its inherent flexibility. It is always a good idea to pair Lilina with them especially in Aether Raids whether it would be on defense or offense.

Reyson or Leanne

Reyson and Leanne provide both heals and refreshes to Lilina so she can brawl it out in the frontlines for much longer. When transformed, they can keep up, or even lead Lilina's movement.

Physical powerhouses, preferably those who are strong against blue units

Since Legendary Lilina is a magic unit, she would need some allies to cover units that are strong in absorbing magic damage. Some great ideas are Brave Edelgard,, Brave Ike, or Surtr.

Reyson can be a good choice too if you choose to run Triangle Adept 3 for the sole purpose of covering Lilina's weakness against blue units.

For blue choices, Brave Hector sets the bar pretty high up for the the best pick.

High-powered blue brawlers

Def is Lilina's weaker stat so blue physical units can easily exploit her. Her Spd is very bad too. Even slower blues can nail follow-up attacks on her so watch out!

Brave Edelgard

Despite being a green unit, Brave Edelgard is strong enough to take on Lilina. She is very common in competitive game modes, and her kit focuses on countering tome users like Lilina. Watch out for her.

Reinhardt

Reinhardt is of the blue attribute, and while he has to go through Lilina's monstrous Res, he can still take Lilina out at good investment levels. Some Reinhardts can score quad attacks on Lilina, too!

Foddering for Atk/Res Solo, Sabotage Res, or Pulse Smoke

L!Lilina can be foddered for the skills Atk/Res Solo 4, Sabotage Res 3, or Pulse Smoke 3. However, since she is a rare Legendary Hero, it's a good idea to keep at least one before foddering off any duplicates as she can lead your team in the Arena.

If you can get Atk/Res Solo 3 from another unit, you can inherit Atk/Res Solo 4 and another skill of choice from a single copy of Legendary Lilina.
