I'm mostly creating this for myself and as a community resource (for everyone here to use). I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of commonly used builds (for each color). There are some skills/weapons/specials that work well together and on certain heroes, so I thought it would be nice to make a list of them. I'm starting with melee red infantry (Swordsman). [Resources: reddit/gamepedia/gamepress/ fireemblem.gamewith/other] Standard Brave Sword Weapon: Brave Sword+ Special: Bonfire/Luna/Other 3 charge that synergizes with hero A Slot: Fire Boost 3/Death Blow 3 B Slot: Drag Back/Swordbreaker 3 Candidates: Sword units with fairly high attack but with low speed. Quad-Strike Weapon: Brave Sword+ Special: Moonbow/Luna/Other A Slot: Life and Death 3/Swift Sparrow 2 B Slot: Desperation 3 Candidates: Sword units with extremely high speed (close to 40). Wao Dao Moonbow Weapon: Wao Dao+ Special: Moonbow A Slot: Fury/L&D/SS/Death Blow B Slot: Flexible Wao Dao gives +10 damage when special activates which increases damage output using low cooldown specials like Moonbow. Candidates: Native users of Wao Dao/Other sword units with good attack and speed. Slaying Edge Quicken Pulse Weapon: Slaying Edge+ Special: Moonbow A Slot: Fury/L&D/SS/Death Blow B Slot: Flexible Seal: Quickened Pulse With Quickened Pulse and Slaying Edge, Moonbow is charged on the first turn allowing you to one-shot some enemies.

Fury Sets Weapon: Flexible Special: Flexible A Slot: Fury 3 B Slot: Vantage 3/Renewal 3 /Swordbreaker 3 Fury drops unit's health in order to proc Vantage or run Renewal to help counteract the effects of Fury.

Ruby Sword Distant Counter Weapon: Ruby Sword+ Special: Flexible A Slot: Distant Counter B Slot: Quick Riposte 2 or 3/Other Candidates: Bulky sword units with poor/mediocre speed who really hate green mages! ————————————————— Anyone can contribute any other generic sword builds even if they have niche uses. I'll copy and paste them in.
