  1. Will we ever get the other serpent tomes?

    In the Brave Redux trailer, it shows her wielding Fenrir or Fenrir+, so I do not think she will come with any Rauđr tome.
  2. Maybe they will change it to escort or courtesan. The two words still mean prostitute, but those words are obscure enough to not immediately scream sex when a kid or teenager reads them I think.
  3. Official Pull Topic

    Yeah, mine went from merge +0 to merge +5. I eventually got my third LB!Mia, but I am going to stop summoning for her. It is a little disappointing to have my best nature be [+HP, -Def], but at least her offensive stats does not have a bane. I might summon more her if I change my mind this coming weekend, but I really do not need another Jaffar pity breaking me. I mostly use Jaffar to mess around, although at +5, he can probably contribute quite a bit in Arena Assault against mages.
  4. Official Pull Topic

    I feel your pain. He is fun to mess around with in PVE maps, but most people have more important units to summon.
  5. Oh, there will be a CYL3. Then they will close the game a month later after grabbing our money!
  6. Maybe I should have worded my question better. Her reaction made me feel a little bad for being surprised at her age. F!Robin's tongue is as cheeky and sharp as ever I see. Severa can learn a thing or two from her!
  7. Was she that old? I do not recall anyone having a specific age.
  8. General US Politics

    I think both sides are very insecure. Putin does not like the expansion of NATO eastward, which is understandable, but he also got to realize that Eastern Europe just recently won back their liberty about 30 years ago, and you cannot expect them to forget being oppressed and abused for about 40 years before that. As for Trump, I agree with @Dr. Tarrasque that it is probably a combination of those three reasons, but I think padding his list of accomplishments is most likely the biggest one. His list of accomplishments frankly is not quite high unless you are a Republican. Muslim ban, trade spats with allies, haphazard deregulation, dialogue with North Korea, pulling out of Iran deal, pulling out of Paris climate deal, etc. are all fuck ups rather than accomplishments and he cannot really use them to woo over independent voters for the coming midterms. - - - - - - - "Voters give Democrats higher marks on looking out for the interests of women and the middle class, handling health care, and immigration. They rate Republicans higher on handling the economy, trade, and the Supreme Court justice nomination process." What the fuck are we smoking to think Republicans are competent at handling the economy and fucking TRADE? Do we not see the irony in TRADE? Who the hell do they think implemented Trickle Down economics and contributed to rising income inequality? Who contributed to the Great Recession the most with no oversight and no regulation? Who do they think will cause and make the next recession more severe with, oh I do not know, unsustainable tax cuts, deregulation, and little infrastructure spending? Who put us in a fucking TRADE WAR and dozens of TRADE SPATS WITH TARIFFS ON ALLIES? Okay, maybe the last one is not reflective of Republicans as whole and while I support the trade war, I am in the minority, and most people and economists would agree the trade war is bad. I will give people a pass for not understanding economics (Again, who do they think cut education spending in the first place?), so maybe they think the economy will be equally great next year. But TRADE? Seriously? That is just unbelievably dumb in my opinion. Here is another article sounding alarms with the trade war affecting our economy. Are we really that dense? The article may be from MSNBC, but people cannot pretend they do not see these headlines every fucking day informing people the dangers of trade wars. You might not agree with everything they say, but trade wars are bad is not a fucking joke. Hell, if the next Great Depression happens, I would argue we deserve it and we as a nation need to fucking starve to get that fact drilled into our head.
  9. Heroes should not get a pass, but expecting them to do something that contradicts their historical behavior is unreasonable in my opinion. They still have not released Laguz yet; they still have not addressed missing skills in the permanent summoning pool (Poleaxe, B Tomebreaker, etc.); they turned Arena into a babysitting match; they pretend Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Warriors, and Cipher does not exist; etc. There are a lot of problems that they are simply not willing to address or at least will not address at the moment, and I believe equal representation amongst games is something they care very little about or at least it is not something that they can fix within a month or two. I do not think those Foci were bad to pull on either. While I personally am not fond of melee units in general, TBK!Chrom is still a pretty decent sword pony with a Brazen Omni effect. He is no where as good as Siegbert and BH!Roy on Player Phase, but he can do mixed phase decently well. M!Morgan is not perfect, but he is one of the best offensive red mage infantry in the permanent summoning with 33/34 offensive spread; he is not flashy like Lilina or Celica, but he can definitely abuse the hell out of Rauðrblade. F!Morgan is a flying mage who can also abuse Blade tomes. WOF!Hinoka is a flying archer, the best type of ranged unit since they not only have the mobility to Dance/Sing-Reposition almost anywhere, as an archer, she also got access to Firesweep Bow. If you do not care too much about scoring, Firesweep Bow is the Weapon that makes Arena and Arena Assault a breeze. WOF!Shigure offensive stats is similar to Cordelia's and can basically do anything she can. F!Kana is a dragon, and dragons are always good; she also got a better stat distribution than Fae in my opinion by being better at avoiding doubles and taking less damage from physical hits. Lene's visual appeal is certainly undeniable, but she also has a very high practical appeal. Valor is good, but Valor on a Dancer/Singer is even better since you can use the Dancer/Singer to significantly speed up training.
  10. The State of Heroes

    Since scraping Arena 2.0 is out of the question and you suggested having other modes as end game content, implementing Arena 3.0 and having three Arena modes is the best solution I can think of. I do not think burn out is a huge issue unless the mode takes a lot of time. The only reason Arena takes any amount of time is because we need to fish. If we did not need to fish, 5 straight wins is pretty easy and quick.
  11. If his stats are distributed well, maybe he can do something like Henry and just dump everything into Def and kill things via Bonfire-Close Counter-Quick Riposte.
  12. The State of Heroes

    More rewards. Assuming the exact same format besides the scoring formula and bonus unit, that is another 3,000 Feathers, 1 Orb, 10 Sacred Coins, and 10 Refining Stones on top of your rank reward.
  13. The State of Heroes

    Well, you can throw BST out the window and keep BST at the same by simply releasing Arena 3.0. I am not sure how difficult implementing a third Arena mode is, but I do not think it is too hard since it is basically the same as Arena 2.0 but with a different scoring formula.
  14. It is their primary motivation and expecting them to act otherwise is not realistic. Sure, maybe they will act altruistically once in a while, but you should not expect them to always act in your favor. Most of those units are part of a desirable class and/or comes with or have access to powerful skills to make them sellable. Listening to fans once in while is not done because it is the ethical thing to do, it is done because it is the profitable thing to do. Expecting them to do exactly as you say is unreasonable at best, and unless a huge portion of the fandom starts to demand Thracia and Binding Blade Foci, they are not going to release them anytime soon in 6 to 12 months.
  15. Maybe we can guess her Weapon at the very least? I am not sure what her tome is though. Actually, I think it is just Fenrir, which is a bit disappointing. Maybe they will give her an exclusive tome though and that she is just wielding Fenrir and not Fenrir+.
