I landed Spd Smoke 4 on Fir when I wanted it on Guinevere… And even just at +1, she’s done pretty exceptionally in the highest Halls. I know the HoF enemies aren’t the most meta or broken units in the game, but they do have inflated stats, or like maximum investment basically. And they get pretty threatening.
I’d say she’s good with Spd Smoke 4. And tbh, unless you have a long list of other units who need a rein skill more, then the rarity of Spd Smoke 4 is honestly enough to grab it. Fallen Lilina is so good, it’s tough to discard her. Whereas, Summer Claude, a 4☆ Focus unit you can get right now, or Ninja Lyn, Brave Claude, are all pretty easy to get. Lyn was in the first AHR banner and maybe you have extra copies if you pulled on that? She’s also coming back soon either way.
There’s no telling when Lilina will make returns. She’s more likely to be on a Dive Bomb banner than a Catch one as well.
It’s just the thing is, there are better fliers in general, who can use the skill better than her. Axe fliers especially though. Units with more defensive Prf’s abd higher defense. Spring Maria and Jill for example. Not just defense, but speed too. Which is just as important because the tanking still requires higher speed.
Without the flash effect, from healers or Nifl, etc, or Windsweep which subtracts from her offenses, you’re gonna have to take some damage before getting the DR. And you might die anyway. Null C also exists.
Tbh these 4 would be better options for Spd Smoke 4… Just the last 3 have slightly less res than her.
One spark of hope is that since she is a seasonal with a prf, If Spring Fir’s refine turns her into a stat ball and potentially in-combat debuffer on top of that, it could legitimately turn it into one of her BEST skills. Personally I’m hoping that’s the case so I can get the most use out of it, too.
