  1. I just thought of a new one: Introduce chance into the game. Sprinkle enough of those in Abyssal maps and it would ruin guides for free players. Imagine Abyssal enemies with Sacred Seals that says "Unit has 50% chance to completely ignore damage." or "Unit has 50% chance to deal an extra 100% damage."
  2. Damn it! I missed my daily Arena and Arena Assault quests today. I dropped back down to Tier 20 and I am top 10,000 for Arena Assault.
  3. I remember saying that, but I should have said 7 instead of 5. For some reason my mind registered of "5 days" when I thought of "week."
  4. Tempest Trial+ : Life is But Fleeting (Dec 18th)

    Score creep is here to save the day. Duel Armor Boots: Unit can move 1 extra space. If unit is 5★ and level 40 and unit's stats total less than 200, treats unit's stats as 200 in modes like Arena. (Higher-scoring opponents will appear. Stat total calculation excludes any values added by merges and skills.)
  5. +HP/Spd/Def/Res, -Atk Flash [Dazzling Staff] — Joyous Lantern [Dazzling Staff] (when paired with Blade tome allies) (Any Assist) Miracle Fortress Def/Res — Fortress Def — Fortress Res — Steady Stance — Warding Stance Guard Atk Smoke — Drive Atk — Atk Opening (when paired with Blade tome allies) — (Any C) Atk Smoke — Spd Smoke — Speed +3 — Close Def — Distant Def Light Blessing Pair that with 2-3 Wings of Mercy Eir allies and 1-2 Wings of Mercy nukes.
  6. I generally do not recommend any Special other than Moonbow or Glimmer. Draconic Aura takes way too long to charge. The only time I recommend a 3 cooldown Special is if the Blade mage is also running Special Spiral and Heavy Blade/Flashing Blade to allow the Blade mage to spam Specials during every single round of combat. If you are putting him in an armor team, I would go with Berserk Armads then. Berserk Armads does gives Hector better kill count, but it also significantly increases his death count. Being in an armor team with Ward Armor will help keep his death count from spiking too much, and in that case, I think it is worth it to forgo the Omnibreaker build in favor of Berserk Armads. Basically, the main difference is that Omnibreaker allows Hector to tank some of the nastiest red nukes while Hector with Berserk Armads will just straight up die against regular red units. Even in a Ward Armor team, those buffs will not help Hector wielding Berserk Armads survive against red units unless you can stack them like crazy in Grand Conquest or something. You can also go with a dual phase build. Hector's Enemy Phase performance is going to look like crap compared to the above Enemy Phase builds, but he will have more Player Phase presence. If you are going for a dual phase build, Hector should really avoid red units on Enemy Phase. If you are going for the dual phase build, I recommend using Berserk Armads unless you want to save Quick Riposte for another unit. For Lyn, I recommend Special Spiral instead, as that allows her to spam Moonbow during every single round of combat instead of just once per phase. You can also do Luna-Special Spiral, but that will be vulnerable to Guard. I also recommend switching out Attack +3 for Brazen Atk/Res for more power. For Fir, I recommend switching her nature to [+Atk, -Res] as her Spd would be pointless without Desperation and she would essentially be a one shot nuke. I also recommend switching Attack +3 to Brazen Atk/Res for more power.
  7. The same old build: Blade Reposition — (Any Assist) Moonbow — Glimmer (Any A that boosts Atk/Spd) Desperation (Any C) Speed +3 — Brazen Atk/Res If you are whaling, here are some other alternatives: Blade Reposition — (Any Assist) Draconic Aura — Luna Life and Death Special Spiral (Any C) Heavy Blade Blade Reposition — (Any Assist) Moonbow — Glimmer Atk/Spd Push Renewal — Mystic Boost (Any C) Speed +3 — Heavy Blade — Flashing Blade Armads Swap — (Any Assist) Moonbow Distant Counter Wary Fighter (Any C) Quick Riposte I would just hold on to him for now and see if they work better on beast units. If you are impatient and want to fodder him right now, any dragon with a non-Distant Counter exclusive Weapon (e.g.: ASS!Tiki, A!M!Corrin, Myrrh) are good candidates. Armor units are also good, especially the dragon ones (e.g.: TLB!Myrrh, LD!Tiki, GOW!Fae). You can also give it to the Askr trio for scoring and having an easier time scoring bonus kills.
  8. Aether Raids General Thread

    I dropped below 5,000 to 5,443, but it is okay since I got the Silver Throne! I just need to be top 6,000 and not 5,000 like I previously thought.
  9. If you are going for area Special spam, you can use Savage Blow to deal more out-of-combat damage.
  10. That is what I am wondering about too. I tried searching for it a few days ago, but all I could find are just people's rehashed versions of the video's song. Maybe we can send them a feedback and ask them to put the full song on YouTube or something.
  11. Tempest Trial+ : Life is But Fleeting (Dec 18th)

    The notification does not say. She could be infantry for all we know, but I think she is most likely to be armored too. There might be a slight chance that she is a flier like FV!F!Robin, but she does not look like she is floating in the trailer.
  12. Aether Raids General Thread

    Really? That is interesting. I find that strategy to be quite underwhelming when I face it. It makes my life on offense easier since I would be dealing with 1 less enemy and it makes positioning Laevatein easier since I do not have worry about her killing everyone before I get my Aether structures.
  13. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    I think it is better to give out that news than not to give it out. Given the choice between knowing and not knowing when those Foci will come out, I think most players would choose to know. I have not heard a player who complained about the news to prefer that the company stay silent about it. By law, publicly traded American companies are required to file an annual report and be open to a certain degree. It does not have to be super detailed into everything, but it should contain all known material information that could influence an investor's decision to invest. In my opinion, if Nintendo were an American company, I expect to find more information on how well their mobile segment is doing, as all the information that I can find so far are vague and not very helpful. I do not expect them to be like Blizzard or EA to communicate that well, but they are an international company and I do expect them to communicate well enough with a third of their market. I do not find an issue with ponies or Dancers/Singers either, but a significant number of players are, and I think their concerns should be heard and replied to, because what those players do and say affects me. I do not want Aether Raids to be another mode tainted by the BST bull crap we have now in Arena and Arena Assault. I want to give my feedback in favor of keeping the status quo. Fire Emblem Heroes is just a mobile game, but it does not kill them to give players some more quality of life improvements for Voting Gauntlet like they did with Tempest Trials. A simple way to make life easier on players is to choose the highest multiplier that happened within in the last 3 or 4 hours, so players do not have to feel like they missed out on a multiplier when they sleep. From a business stand point, yes, they should keep the 5* pools bloated, but at the very least they should communicate to players why they are doing so. Management had almost 2 years to improve their workflow. I do not know for sure how long it takes, but it feels like it takes them 6 months to a full year to create a Focus, and that is abysmally slow. I have not played other gacha games, but I do not hear about Heroes players who play other gacha games praise how fast Heroes is. In my opinion, taking 6 months to respond to customer demands as a gacha game is unacceptable.
  14. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    They do not have to address PvP issues with the same urgency, but they should at least give players a reply to let us know they heard us and are working on it. A simple Tweet on Twitter to tell us they will figure something out to address player's complaints against Dancers/Singers and ponies in Aether Raids would do wonders, and it would also give players like me who enjoy the mode without the BST crap time to reply and present our arguments. An easy immediate compromise would be to make Tactics Room (O) affect three columns like Schools (O). PvP also is not the only issue that they are slow at addressing. Some players want more diversity in New Heroes Foci and not as much alt spam. A lot of players do not want to wake up in the middle of the night to catch the Voting Gauntlet multipliers. There are still crap in the 5* pool that players do not want to summon, like Mist and a whole bunch of sword units. The only time that I remember Heroes doing something quickly was to reduce the enemy stats in Relay Defense. Maybe it is a cultural thing and demanding better communication is too much to ask for. If they would just communicate, western players would be a lot more understanding and patient. Even the slowness can be easily excusable if they present the cost cutting, or whatever that is causing slowness in Heroes, as a way to spend more resources on Three Houses.
  15. Aether Raids General Thread

    I got 7,080 Lift and I am in Rank 4,603! Top 5,000! There is only about 5 hours left, so hopefully I get to stay and get my Silver Throne.
