Rate the Unit, Day 19: Nephenee
Posted 16 April 2012 - 08:25 AM
- Ratings are assumed to be on Hard Mode+Fixed Mode.
- Votes need some explanation regarding their gameplay performance to be counted. If somebody else said what you want to already, quote them explicitly.
+/- ≤1 point extra regarding personality/appearance is encouraged, but no more. If you exercise your bias privileges, please do so explicitly.
- Numerical votes out of 10, or something proportional to it. Make it easy to calculate for my sake.
- Every ranking phase ends whenever I get out of bed, between 0700 and 0800 EST. Do the math for your timezone, Brits.
- I will insist you do not use the "Not X" reason on any character, where X is another unit. If you do, your vote will be thrown out.
- "Recruits X" or "takes you to X chapter" arguments are explicitly banned. C'mon, people, this shouldn't need to be a rule. That's not gameplay performance.
- Assume that the character in question is being recruited.
- Similar to the "Recruits X" rule, do not use "she brings a Knight Ward to the team" as an argument.
- BEXP is free to be used in any quantity on any character.
- Rating a unit too low because you think its overrated will make me throw away your vote without mercy public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif.
- I withhold the privilege to tell you your rating is bogus and demand you revise it if it breaks any of the above. I will not throw out votes anonymously, you will be informed and given a chance to revise.

-Comes same time as Kieran
-Needs bexp and forges
One of the better non-magic infantry units in fe9.
IMO, right below Boyd and Mordy.
It's easy to get her up to par, and she's not a bad choice to train.

Anyways; she's the only playable soldier; and she has solid growths; although her STR can get shaky; which is solved by a STR-growth band. She isn't bad; since she got 1-2 range combat courtesy of Javelins and gets better upon promotion.
Bad bits? Her STR is kinda shaky; and supports... Her affinity is Wind which is crap... but she supports Calill! Now, that's something...

With some investment, does pretty well, but I don't think she is more valuable than say, a...

...Well she starts with E Lances, which kind of sucks. Arms Scroll could allow her to use forged Steel if warranted, and BEXP kind of helps curve her earlygame rut a bit. Innate Wrath is pretty cool, especially when paired with Vantage, but Nephenee is pretty much your average combat unit with just enough Spd to go batshit crazy, offense to carry it, and durability to be useful. She definitely won't be as useful as the Cavalier brigade, but she's not a horrible unit either. Kind of funny that Knight Ward makes her Spd growth increase to 85%. I'm a little too lazy with this one.

Someone that is a great contender for the Vantage Scroll as she will get alot better with it! Also in desperate need for the Pegasus Band since her Luck growth isn't too good. Best to support her with Calill. Needs the 2.5 per support level avoid boost. Forge her a Lance in the beginning; and she'll be good to go.
Worth more than Oscar/Keiran?

She's not Ashera in human form like most people on gamefaqs think, but after an arm scroll she's a capable unit. Good spead and the vantage/wrath combo are her biggest assets.
I give Nephenee a 6.5 and a bias point because I like her personality. 7.5/10
Posted 16 April 2012 - 10:43 AM
I don't really see the point of giving Nephenee an Arms Scroll, since she wouldn't want to be using Steel starting out, and by the time Steel becomes forgeable, she should've gotten to D rank already.
after an arm scroll she's a capable unit.
7/10, because I'd have trouble justifying a higher rating. E Lances sucks to have to sit through, and her supports are nothing to write home about, but she can still use Vantage effectively with her natural Wrath.

I'm sorry Nephenee; but I have to say this... You're overrated as fuck at GFaqs; ugh...Anyways; she's the only playable soldier; and she has solid growths; although her STR can get shaky; which is solved by a STR-growth band. She isn't bad; since she got 1-2 range combat courtesy of Javelins and gets better upon promotion.Bad bits? Her STR is kinda shaky; and supports...

This. I feel like people overrate Nephenee way too much.

Come to think of it. She could be her good alter ego. No. Shoot. That's Yune. She's gotta be her ancestor.

Probably one of the most overrated units in the game. She really isn't that good... she starts with E lances and underleveled, and we're already cockslapping Mist and Marcia with our BEXP. She's got the awesome Wrath skill, and promotes to a decent class, but otherwise isn't worth raising that well. She's a footie in a paladin-dominated game, as well.
Yes, but Marcia/Mist have utility as well.
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:15 PM
Good overall growths
Lances / 1-2 Range
Almost always doubles
STR sometimes suspect
Doesn't get a second weapon
Lots of competition for BEXP (Kieran, Jill, Marcia)
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:20 PM

Right. That's an obvious point. They still want a majority of the BEXP that you'll be getting. Especially Mist, because she's your only mounted healer until lolelincia.
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:25 PM
I cant deny that she has solid growths, but she's so average when training her. E lance base is bad but sparing an arms scroll nets her a steel lance which is better for forges. Low strength can get her screwed. Um 4th best foot soldier. 6.5/10
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:30 PM
That's really about it. Plus, I find her personality both simple and endearing. I like modesty and, as I recall, Nephenee is a fairly modest character.
7/10 +1 bias = 8/10 total.
