Why does everyone hate on Pre-promoted characters?
Posted 26 May 2008 - 05:54 PM
Yah, before someone says it, they may have worse chances to be useful endgame, but they can still be fairly useful.
Beating Sacred Stones on Medium, the Pally (Seth if I Remember correctly) was very useful still. In PoR (And RD, but they had a new class by then), Titiana was still useful. They may not END as the best character, but they can still kill units better than some other units.

like changedbyvasm said, the japanese released and FE7 prepromotes have mediocere bases and horrible growth, which just doesn't cut it.
I admit they are useful in hard modes but they practically have no uses wahtsoever in normal modes imo

I'm not sure how to define pre-promotes in RD, since most units come as 2nd tier units. Would they be considered mid-motes?

Oifaye was good

Expand, please? They suck isn't a good reason at all.
'Cause they suck.

The main reason I don't like prepromoted characters is that they can easily take up valuable experience points of other weaker, yet ultimately more powerful characters. So, instead of relying on my strong prepromoted characters, I go ahead and train my weaker guys.
I don't really hate prepromoted characters, because they are usually essential to the game's plot, and they make good couples with other characters (like Seth and Eirika omg).

Oifey (one of my favorite archetypes)
Percival (being the only one in his game)
Really bad ones are the Jeigan archetypes such as the following:

Also you generally like unpromotes more as you have more time with them, Support Convos, and all around more attached. Early pre-promotes aren't generally useful and slow down leveling unless you're on Hard (where they are more a requirement).

But you only use Orson for one chapter....
Despite the fact, he plays a role of a Jeigan in one chapter.
