  1. I'm not sure anybody knows what IS will be doing after they've cycled all 12 slots. If they stop re-running the existing legendaries, people will complain. If they stop the LH banners and thus stop re-running seasonals, people will complain. If they keep adding new ones in to the point we can wait eight+ months to see one again, people will complain.
  2. ughhhhh more Abyssal maps. I can ignore the ones on the LHB rotation, but now they're creeping more and more into the game. I really need to try to build a challenge team. I've got enough Drive Attack fodder to get three dancers with that...just gotta pick an OP unit to use with it now. I always feel so bad foddering off 5*'s, so I just don't really have a challenge team. I'm surprised IS included more of them, I got the impression there was quite a backlash on them. Or was that just the vocal minority again?
  3. Voting Gauntlet: Fathers and Daughters!

    I'm thinking it goes with the ending of Book 2. That big banner is potentially the OC's, they just gotta add in three of them to do an Alfonse/Sharena/Anna/Fjorm/Gunnthra voting gauntlet. (plus they can remind us that you can get a free Fjorm. Not done that in a while.)

    I'm getting realllllly tired of these banners giving me off focus units. Final round on the CYL2 banner with a 5.5% pity rate gave me... A -atk +HP Leif (second copy) Perfectly neutral Ares (he's my +10 project, so hey...saved 20k feathers) and one of the rarest units in the game... a +Def -Spd Saber. So 300 orbs into CYL2, and my only CYL was freebe Hector. Greeeat. Used up the remaining 100 orbs on the Doorway to Destiny banner sniping exclusively greens. So far just a really high pity rate. Damnit, I want an amazing green mage who isn't a child. My FEHDex is doing great though. If only there was a prize for summoning them all.
  5. Oh, good point. I guess it would be a bit too much for B!Ephraim to get -3 cooldown every time he's attacked, lol.
  6. I mean, Windfire Balm is nice, but there just isn't the competition for healers specials unless you're trying to build one for arena, in which case Veronica coming with a Prf makes her better by default. Special Fighter is a perfect skill to go alongside a breath, but i'm with you and i'd still rather just go with the assured follow up. Death Blow 4 is an odd one. Firstly, you'd keep Celica for that amazing artwork even if you didnt use her. But secondly, I don't think it makes her compete with Ayra and Karla. I'm not even sure they'd want Death Blow 4, there's just so much competition in A Skills. Atk/Spd Push, Brazen Atk/Spd, Atk/Def Bond, Life and Death or Distant Counter. I'm not honestly convinced Death Blow 4 is optimal even on Celica, if you boost her speed up she's got enough to base to quad almost everyone. Give her Swift Sparrow or Atk/Spd Bond if you wanna compliment the Royal Sword. I think as the dust settles and the hype dies down people might realise this isn't as innovative or as exciting as we hoped it would be : (
  7. ...what? That's a real oddity, lol. We haven't had a new regular archer since Innes, so mad hype there, but unless this means that the new heroes on the 7th September are Genealogy, he's really come out of nowhere.

    I don't think the game likes me. Pity Rates climbed really high both times, 205 orbs in and I got a +Atk -Spd Swordhart (new) and a Luke (new) to give Panic Ploy to somebody. Because you only get Luke to fill the FehDex. Freebie was B!Hector, and the only one i'm sort of sad about not getting is Veronica, since it would just be hilarious to make Veronica fight Veronica. I'll just wait for them to reappear on legendary banners, as they seem to do that quite a lot. I'm sort of expecting this legendary banner will be a good one to skip to save orbs on, thankfully.
  9. I actually fully agree! I was really excited, I woke up at 4:30am to catch it, and in the end after not getting a focus unit 200 orbs in and only having my free B!Hector, i'm like "eh...i'm not fussed enough to keep going". They just aren't as meta changing and unique as CYL1 was. Heck, even more recent units have been more meta defining than these guys. Armoured units needed something really unique to be different enough, since Grima and Christmas Lissa/Hardin basically changed how armours work, and Hector's been powercreeping himself gradually for a while now anyway. So their unique things being more follow ups/specials/better counters? It's not as unique or as exciting as, say, Steady Breath, or the first Galeforce-abusing Horse, and NONE of them come close to being as meta-changing as Brave Lyn was and still is. I can still run Firesweep Brave Lyn and she still stands as potentially the best unit in the entire game. Brave Ike changed defensive teams forever with the inclusion of the breathes, Brave Lyn and Brave Roy changed horse emblem to a degree we still see today and Brave Lucina...I mean, she was the best blue duelist and buffer for a while. These guys...? Eh. Celica has been done before by Swordhart, Elincia and even Alm, she's just a slightly different take on the doubling/quadding. Hector is very similar to Hardin, Ephraim is just another amazing green armour to go with Grima, Hector, LB!Hector and L!Hector. The only unique one here is really Veronica, but her staff is basically Peshkatz support with healing abilities...so Sothe with a staff on a horse. I'll just keep my +7 Watersweep Sothe for support, and if your healer is beating something up rather than healing, you'd probably have been better with another unit, like Medic Sigurd/Medic Maskcina/Micaiah. I took Hector as my free unit, since that means I can scrap Hardin to feed Bold Fighter to the Black Knight and run Steady Breath/Bold Fighter BK/Grima with B!Hector and a dancer until I get an armoured mage.
  10. I mean I purposefully did it with my horse team since I wanted to give L!Ephraim some more HM and the trenches just weren't really a problem. The AI is just too easy to manipulate and take out one by one. I'd hate to see how easy it is to bring a flying team or an infantry team. Even armoured wouldn't be overly hard, Micaiah struggles against the three Hectors and Grima. What team were you trying? I had Galeforce L!Ephraim, Siegbert, Gunnthra and a dancer.

    Olivia is basically Performing Azura who trades off one extra buff in every stat for being a flier, which imo makes her pretty close to the best dancer. Guidance on a dancer is just crazy. Reese's Tome has a really sweet animation and Katarina is like the original Robin. She's honestly on my list to consider using those 200 dew on...Olwen underwhelmes me so far, but maybe that's since i've got a +5 Gunnthra xD I'm pretty pleased I got so many new units! She's +RES -SPD, so honestly pretty close. It's not like Red Thani will be doubling anythin anyway. Fed her Chill Speed, gave her Attack Ploy seal, she's a great debuffing dancer. The silver lining will be that the banner coming soon ISN'T CYL2 so I have some more time to rebuild my stash of orbs for the next units to break the meta...
  12. Tempest Trials: Chaos Named!

    It can't just be me who plays FEH a lot more when there's a tempest out. Wish there was a permanent one like Tap Battles, lol. Got Azura and Flyzura and Ninian to max HM in this tempest already, working on Inigo/Lyn/Masked Marth/L!Lucina next. Future Vision really makes dealing with bad layouts a joke.

    I don't know what was wrong with this dancing banner. I decided I just had to have the silver haired maiden since she was basically my first FE protagonist, so went full on whale to get her. Pulled exclusively red unless there were no reds... 5 star pulls as follows: (new) YT Olivia (+4 merge) Leo (+3 merge) Lyn (+1 merge)Ares (+3 merge)Sanaki (new) Katarina (+1 merge)YT Olivia (new)WT Olwen (+2 merge)Grey (+1 merge)Deidere AND FINALLY Micaiah. With luck like that, I think i'll wait until she appears on a legendary banner to try to merge her...
  14. I know it's comparing the two, but Fate/Go gets away with unique dialogue if you have X and Y. Like, if you have A and Alt A, Alt A will have a line of voiced dialogue about A. That's basically a support conversation...right? Since're on the same rulebook, wouldn't that make it okay?

    Yeah. 46/41 offenses with Firesweep and double savage blow is absolutely insane. Thinking of feeding her a Chrom for Chill Def. Better make the best of what we've got and all that when Gacha is a harsh mistress.
