    First, there's some unit name typos here. Most are accurate, I can puzzle out most of the few typos I see, but fuck if I know what you mean by "Melora". Melord, perhaps?

    Second, if you want FH squad advice, you need to list how many of each unit you have. FH optimal builds use 2x paired identical/duplicate nuke units. Please clarify if you have 2x of units below, particularly Nyami, Barbara, Rengaku, Lauda, Fionna, Shura, etc.

    For some people it doesn't matter too much, since there's some obvious FH picks and then they can slot dupes where possible. For you, you're likely starting with Avant or Nyami lead, but what comes after could probably vary greatly depending on what's available.

    Sorry, my phone autocorrected some of the names, my mistake. I have no dupes actually, so that is what I have right there.

    If no dupes, then...

    FRONTIER HUNTER
    :dark:Nyami (or :fire:Avant, Lead) + :light:Lauda, :fire:Shura (or Barbara/Eze), :fire:Glenn (or Azurai/Zalvard/any crit buff), :light:Fionna

    - last slot could also be Nyami/Shura/Barbara/Eze depending on who isn't used
    - this is an autobattle setup, if want to do guard frontier with this, need Dizzy friend, or need to include Elimo or something in own build
    - typically FH squads try to include element add, but your only obvious element adder is Ciara, who is not suitable for FH use due to animation/buff timing

    MAIN SQUAD (general purpose jack of all trades)
    :earth:Hisui, :light:Linasera, :water:Zeleste, :earth:Zelnite, :thunder:Zora (or other unit, see below)
    - Hisui lead for hard boss fights, Zelnite lead for easier stuff and account XP farming. Regil/Lukroar friend if using Hisui lead, Zelnite/Shion/Zeruiah friend if using Zelnite lead.
    - Hisui unfortunately has low HP owing to no self HP increase SP option, but you don't have many units who have dmg reduction on LS. Lofia's version only works on water units, Tridon's a 7* and his shield fucks with barrier, Azurai's possible but weaker static dmg reduction than Regil/Lukroar, Daros' has a shitty trigger, Arsom's is good on attack but may not be so reliable on defence, etc.
    - Zora is for ailments/debuffs vs bosses, if this is not needed can take crit buffs or Fionna/Beiorg for KO resistance
    - Since Hisui lead does crit null and he can do ailment removal with SP, can theoretically take some other heal over three turn unit in Linasera spot

    Honestly, your unit list is pretty good. No need to worry too much. One thing I should note, probably worth looking at a water squad, since, well, Lofia and all.

    Call it... :water:Lofia (Lead) + :water:Elimo, :water:Zeleste (or Arsom), :water:Melord, (and choice of something in last slot - Selena, Zalts, Vaisal, Azalea)
    - SP Elimo for heal over three turns unless Selena is in last slot. SP Elimo for crit null. SP Melord for atk buff, note that you need Melord BB not SBB for def relative to other stat and BB fill when squad is damaged. SP Arsom for spark dmg buff and BB fill when spark (or just use Zeleste).

    Oh that sounds good. I may make a water team. Selena was my favorite unit since the beginning. Thanks for that!

    Alright awesome, glad my units are pretty good. I still gave to beat Tilith and then the other trials after her.

    Well... Selena would be my last pick for the final slot on that team though, since assuming Elimo is SP'd for HoT, you get better stats with Azalea (mono water buffs), better damage with Zalts and Vaisal (Zalts has BB atk, Vaisal has self dmg stuff). But you could use Selena, no problem, sure, and it'd free up SP on Elimo for whatever. It'd work. If you don't care about perfect optimisation, there's probably enough leeway to do what you want.

    I mean, I like to make the joke about the mono horse team. I have a theoretical squad build - theoretical, since, y'know, I don't know anyone who actually DOES this, but---anyway, yeah, where everyone is on a horse. It isn't a good squad, but it is technically a fully functioning squad... :p

    I'll probably opt out of using Selena in favor of one of the others. Elimo is already SP for HoT so that's fine at least haha.

    Oh nice, that sounds like an interesting team if nothing else
