Lately I've been playing maddening with Byleth in awful classes such as Great Knight, Mortal Savant, etc. Now I'm trying to make Byleth into a holy knight. What would be the best path and skills to make this work in Maddening? Please refrain from discouraging holy knight.

He'll have white magic avoid +20 so evasion tanking is semi viable, not long term though since only 15 total uses of white magic.

Get Sacred Power cause that's always useful, as far as the weapon you choose to main that's up to you, though lances will make getting into Holy Knight easier.

MAG+2, Faith Prowess, WMA+20, Fiendish Blow and HP+5/Dex+4/whatever.

Low uses of white magic is a problem, so may want to invest in lances after all.

You can still use Reason as a HK, so don't necessarily need lances... (other than to get into HK)

Magic Byleth can get away with just using the Sword of the Creator as the back up weapon, because magic generally hurts most units hard anyways. The few units immune to magic like monster with shields can just be hit with a battalion or Sword of the Creator.

This is true but between Byleth's average magic stat, incredible strength stat, and mediocre reason spell list I think a physical weapon will do better. I guess going mono-magic does at least let you use things like magic +2 and fiendish blow without waste.

Byleth with White Magic Avoid + 20 and an Evasion battaltion can be a really good dodge tank. As Enlightened One at least. Maybe a bit less so as a Holy Knight due to the lower speed.
