How To Use Bernadetta

Bernadetta has the potential of becoming one of the best Archers in the game. However, you should not confuse her battle prowess with a strong offense.

Bernadetta is best when she is ordered to defend, where she also is able to provide excellent support to other units. Pushing her on the offense is not recommended since there are other Archers in the game better suited to that role.

Also, you can deepen your relationship with Bernadetta by finding her lost items and giving her higher-class units. She will otherwise try to stay away from any interactions due to her nature.
