  1. I am using Kagero to lure unsuspecting players in for those reasons.
  2. Seeing players being traumatized by learn about Reihardt warms my heart. I am deeply inspired by your teacher that I will implement that into next week's torture lesson plans. Thanks for notifying me on how to improve my demons from Hell lesson plan. I used Kagero this week to be extra obnoxious teach players how good she is against infantry units, but yeah, usually it is the Askr Trio. Ignore the haters, @DehNutCase. Torturing teaching players is an underappreciated, but necessary, job.
  3. Ah okay. That mostly depends on your preferences. I personally prefer Reposition on everyone, except for healers and Arena defense teams. I tried Swap and Draw Back when I was testing out all three Assists for myself, but I do not like those two as much since they do not move the Assisted unit far enough. Whenever I run Reposition, I never regret running that skill over Draw Back or Swap; however, when I run Draw Back or Swap, I frequently regret running those two over Reposition. For ranged nukes, I generally prefer to bane the higher defensive stat. However, for units with the same or relatively similar defensive stats like Odin, I bane Defense. Against neutral Vanilla units, I find having Resistance being around 0 to 2 points higher than Defense to be the sweet spot in getting the least deaths. How many characters do you need to get rid of, is your barracks packed? If you are maxed out on 1,000 spaces already, I do not think being cautious about skill inheritance applies anymore (unless it is for an expensive skill), so just inherit skills to whoever you want. If you are not at the point with tons of skill fodder yet, then I would be a little more cautious.
  4. If you have enough fodder, just give the unit multiple skills. You do not always have to learn the skill immediately. Having multiple skills also allows you to customize them for specific situations if you ever need it. That being said, I would not invest multiple skills into Odin since there are better units to invest in. But, if you really like him or your other good characters have all the customization options they need, then investing in Odin makes sense.
  5. I prefer her to focus on tanking magical attacks since she is the axe flier with the highest Resistance, so I would go for [+Res, -Def]. If you want her to tank both physical and magical attacks, I cannot think of any stat she would want to bane, so I would go for a neutral nature. I guess you can go for [+Spd/Def, -Res] since her Resistance is still pretty decent at 28.
  6. I personally would not invest too much into armor units. However, if they are working out for you and Effie is a core unit you use every week in the Arena, then spending extra Feathers on her is not a bad idea since she can start paying for herself. If you are only using Effie (or any unit for that matter) for Arena Assault, then I would advise against over investing in her; I definitely would not give Effie Brave Lance+ in that scenario unless you have a lot of Feathers to burn. As long as you are bringing hard counters, their skills and nature do not matter very much.
  7. Merging is a good idea. As you said, Elicinia is not a very good fodder unit since all her valuable skills are available at a lower rarity; Flier Formation is also really niche.
  8. Yeah, BB!Lyn is really good. I wish I can inherit both Candlelight and Dazzling Staff from a single BB!Lyn.
  9. Ah, okay. So neutral vanilla Mathilda will still do 40% extra damage against neutral vanilla Roy? If you are not using Amelia, I would give everyone Swap and Ward Armor. If you are using Amelia, Amelia's partner should run Hone Armor. I would give Hector Vantage or Cancel Affinity. I would give Amelia a Brave Axe build if you can afford it. For Effie, it depends on whether you want to use her on Player Phase or Enemy Phase. If you are using her on Player Phase, go with [+Atk, -Res]. If you plan to use her as an Enemy Phase unit, I think both are okay, but I would still lean towards +Atk. For Player Phase Effie, I would run a Brave Lance build. For Enemy Phase Effire, I would stick with her default Silver Lance and give her Quick Riposte. I would give Zephiel and Sheena Fury and Quick Riposte. Black Knight should have Steady Breath and Quick Riposte. If you do not have Steady Breath fodder, Fury works fine too.
  10. I am pretty sure Black Luna is 3 cooldown, not 4. Here is the Wiki page. His best I could come up with is still [Alondite, Black Luna, Steady Breath, and Quick Riposte].
  11. One day, hopefully more creative gamers will be able to live off of their creative works, or at least let it be a bigger source of income, as more and more people come to appreciate newer and more various forms of art. Besides minority of YouTubers, I do not think most artists are able to live solely off of their creative works.
  12. For the love of Fire Emblem, do it. Be bold, be avant-garde. Your masterpiece will contribute to the advancement of videogame and literary culture. Show the world how awesome Fire Emblem and head canons are.
  13. Those two were huge headaches for those who could not read Japanese when those skills first came out. Cancel Affinity was especially confusing. I still have no idea what is the difference between tier 1 and tier 2 in terms of its effect.
  14. That term sounds perfect. It is a whole lot easier to type compared to ménage à trois, fumbling with alt codes. Who knew Eirika is such a player. Yeah, I will Ally Support them too.
  15. Yeah, the description is confusing sometimes with how it is translated into English.
