    I still don't have much to say about myself. Let's see . . . I'm a fan of anime, manga, video games and other artistic, nerdy stuffs. I joined this website on a whim, not particularly contributing anything to it until the announcement of FE: Fates. From there, I began to lurk until comfortable enough to comment here and there, and now I pretty much check this site several times everyday.

    I'm pretty easygoing person, so feel free to leave a message. But, don't be vexed when I neglect to respond; I have a tendency to procrastinate when it comes to things like that. Sorry in advance.

    So, my interests are all over the place, but as of right now, they are as follows: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (anime/manga); Kingdom (manga); Prison School (manga); Touken Ranbu (game) and probably some other things that have slipped my mind.

  1. Building low tier units

    I mean, I guess it depends on how one defines "low tier." The only units I can think of are Odin and Henry, and even then, they have their own strengths that make them usable in some way. Speaking of M!Corrin, I have mine as a magic sponge cheerleader for Alfonse. I decided to use a +RES -SPD nature and slap DC+ QR3 on him because I wanted to be different. That super boon in RES evens up his defenses, and I love looking at it. I also have a +DEF -RES Donnel that is also a magic sponge panic starter. He has Berkut's Lance because, again, I wanted to be different. Besides, that +7 RES if a foe initiates is nothing to sniff at. And, lastly, I'm working on a Lon'qu for Miracle + Vantage + WoM shenanigans. Really don't know what I'm aiming for or if it'll work, but I don't really care.
  2. My Thoughts/Hopes for Three Houses

    Let's see. 1.) I kind of want a mix of several of the presented options. In particular, the first three. I want to see the development of the three main characters, and I want to see how they each personally view the conflict. Because I'm a fan of character development, positive or negative. And I also want to see Byleth grow as a mentor and what lessons the main characters take from them. I understand people's reservations about Avatars, but, if the game is going to present me with a permanent character that I have to play with, I want them to have some semblance of growth. Like, there's a way of allowing the supporting characters grow without their growth eclipsing the main characters'. 2.) I'm gonna go with more elements from the Tellius series, the Base Conversations being my number one. I agree that having some AI similarities, such as bosses trading items and stuff like that, but I'm not sure if the squad mechanic will work with something like that. I'll wait and see on that note. 3.) My favorite so far is Dimitri with Claude as a close second and Byleth in third. No offense to Edelgard, but I have a inkling of how she will be characterized, and I'm honestly more interested in the other three cast members that we know nothing about. Really hoping they make them somewhat nuanced with their internal struggles and beliefs, but I'm not asking for some character study. 4.) I'm really excited but in a subdued fashion. When the game is released, I'm probably going to watch a walkthrough of it before buying it. Part of me wants the JP version to release before the US version so that I can watch gameplay with minimal spoilers via language barrier. But, I know others want to worldwide release, which is also fine. I'm going to buy a Switch when I decide to buy Three Houses, so there's a high chance Three Houses will be either a pre-order or a pre-download (if the Switch has those) for me. 4.) Have a Nintendo Direct. Better yet, release the game. I'd rather get a decent grasp of the characters and story from the source, rather than a mobile game. That's just my preference.
  3. My process of choosing pairs: favoritism for certain characters, chemistry between parents, and stats in that order. I choose my favorite characters and focus on unlocking their support options, which admittedly can take a long while. Luckily, I don't have that many characters I trip over myself about. Next, I decide which pairings I enjoyed the most. This step takes the longest for certain characters. For example, Mozu takes me the longest to pair in Fates, especially in Revelations, when I'm stuck between deciding between Kaze, Saizou, Laslow, Ryoma or Xander. Then, there are some like Odin, who I pair exclusively with Elise - Kagero if playing Revelations - which leads me to my final point. Stats. I simultaneously care and don't care about stats. If a pairing I enjoy produces a kid with a decent stat spread, that's good. If it doesn't, I make lemonade out of lemons. The Odin-Kagero example is perfect for this, because it's obvious that their child will be a hodge-podge of stats. But their chemistry together, in my opinon, overrides that, so I just rock a Dark Knight Ophelia and call it a day. On hair color, the only time I care about it is when dealing with the Avatar's kids. I don't care if Hisame gets Hinoka's garish red hair - he's not my kid. But I'll be damned if my Caeldori walks around looking like a clown with tacky celery-colored hair because I chose the wrong hair color when making my Avatar. So, when it comes to that, I have to plan early on if my Avatar is going to marry a first gen parent or if I'll slap them with a Avatar-exclusive; the latter of which is usually the case.
  4. How many 5 star units do you have?

    As of 08.11.2018: Brave Lyn (Neutral) Elise (+SPD -DEF) Summer F!Corrin (+ATK -SPD) Summer A!Tiki (+HP -DEF) Legendary Lyn (Neutral) New Years Camilla (+ATK -RES) Fjorm (Neutral) Legendary Ike (Neutral) Summer Takumi (+HP -RES) Ike (+ATK -SPD) Innes (+SPD -ATK)
  5. "Estival" is actually a word. I believe it means "belonging to or appearing in summer."
  6. Grima on retrospect

    I mean, it could be canon. It could not be. Or maybe it's both at the same time? We can also say Xander in tight swimming trunks smacking people with a giant Lilith Floatie, Leo using a tome that spits tomatoes at people's faces and Chrom crushing naughty heroes' heads with a Sack-o'-Gifts is canon, too. and i wouldn't necessarily be against any of those Yeah, that was one aspect I really liked about Grima. Overall, I really liked the Grimleal aesthetic, to be honest.
  7. Tellius and Blazing Sword. Still waiting for Ashnard to join his limited merges brethren to complete my flying villains brigade. Still waiting for Sephiran to be a lame staff unit I know they're probably gonna make him. Still waiting for Nasir and Kurthnaga to be a TT reward non-loli dragon. Still waiting for Rath and Heath and Wil and Kent and Sain and pretty much everyone else.
  8. Grima on retrospect

    I thought Grima had a cool dragon design. Kind of irked such a decent design was wasted on a villain, I personally feel, had no real threatening presence. Never played SoV and don't particularly care to, so any characterization there is lost on me. I sort of like the personality given in Heroes, despite being non-canon. His VA really sells it as well. I do think some fans take Heroes' characterization too far and make Grima a little too sympathetic, but it's not like I dislike it, am repulsed by it or anything like that. I also want to summon him with a nature other than a -DEF in Heroes; I will even take -ATK at this point in exchange. My summoner support can only do so much in patching up his defense. That's it.
  9. How many 5 star units do you have?

    I started a new account recently to test all the things I've learned over the course of playing FEH. My five star heroes as of 08.02.2018 are: Brave Lyn (Neutral) Elise (+SPD -DEF) Summer F!Corrin (+ATK -SPD) Summer A!Tiki (+HP -DEF) Legendary Lyn (Neutral) New Years Camilla (+ATK -RES) Fjorm (Neutral) Legendary Ike (Neutral) I have three out of four legendary heroes to make teams for Arena Assault. I wanted a fire one for musical reference, but I have play with the units the RNGoddess gave me.
  10. Best boss quotes

    My favorite FE quote will always be this one between Ike and Ena from PoR, Ch. 21, "Without a King." Followed by her determined and somewhat cocky battle initiation quote:
  11. Official Pull Topic

    Took my piddly 126 orbs, went in for L!Ryoma and W!Lissa and ended up with a +ATK -SPD Exalted Chrom and a +ATK -DEF W!Lissa. Both are now the base units and sitting at +1. I have about 43 orbs left and I want to dip back in to pull another W!Lissa or, interestingly enough, try to pull a F!Corrin to give Dark Breath to M!Kana. But, I think I'm gonna wait until those 1-day banners show up and try to get a 5* one to avoid having to dish out 20k feathers. All in all, this legendary summoning session was decent. I'm satisfied with what I got.
  12. Your Lowest Tier Heroes

    Any low tier heroes that you use on a regular basis. Can be mains or just units you find yourself using more often than not.
  13. Bad idea to play Persona 4 blind?

    I think only certain important floors in the dungeons are fixed, but the rest cycle through a set number of randomly generated layouts, if that makes sense.
  14. Fire Emblem Heroes General Discussion and Links

    You're not the only one. When it comes to arena, I almost feel like the game punishes me for not investing into armors and dragons earlier when it comes to arena, if anything. It's probably completely not true, but it's annoying that none of my favorite characters can really get me into the higher arena tiers unless they're highly merged, have certain premium skills or reach a certain BST threshold. I initially thought arena was gonna be that mode where you see wacky, awesome team comps and units, but all I've seen is B!Lyn, Reinhardt, Zelgius, W!Tharja and some dancer so much that I barely even bother with arena anymore. Now all I've got is the F!Robin GHB to struggle with because it's the only thing I haven't cleared in the game yet. Damn cavalry quest keeps stumping me. But, I do have some hope IS will add in new modes and/or tweak current modes in the future. If there's anything about FEH I can say, it's that they're been relatively receptive and flexible when it comes to updates, changes, etc. i hope
