  1. Aether Raids General Thread

    They revealed the formulas for the maximum Lift increase/Defense Lift Loss reduction in the notifications iirc, so with whaling for +10 Dark/Anima mythic heroes brings the maximum Def Lift loss down to a meager -28 for a 6 unit defense instead of -80. (2*4*4 = 32 for 2 +0 mythics, 52 with 2 +10s)
  2. Aether Raids General Thread

    I upgraded Fort O to lv3 at the start of last season, can confirm it was incredibly useful for the stat advantage. (And last week proved how RNG-reliant upgrading Fort D is in comparison, since I only got attacked on 3 out of the 6 days) That triple Surtr team with lv3+1 Fort D sounds familiar, was it on the desert fortress map with an Aversa and Gunnthra in each top corner? It was pretty scary not having the stat bonus there, so I just winged it with my own Surtr on the defense tile, and my own Aversa supporting him with chip damage.
  3. Aether Raids General Thread

    Managed to squeak by into T19 this week at 8380 total, even after goofing hard and losing one match early in the week. Thankfully I got RNG'd on defense and only ate a -140 total (2 -60s and a -20). Really wish I had managed to pull more Eirs, it would have been a much more relaxing week getting 120-160 instead of 110 per match. Only 1 or 2 more ticket circles to open I believe, so my hopes are not high.

    Apparently it alternates, so we only get to abuse Eir every other week.

    Isn't that Arthur though? But yeah your point still stands about Fates royals.
  6. Aether Raids General Thread

    Ending at 7280 (7200 if someone hits me today), not even going to bother using today's free match/aether since they don't matter. I feel like that says something if someone avoids playing a game mode when possible. I'm in the same predicament, the lv3 Fort O would help a lot tanking all those nasty defense maps, so I'm leaning towards that myself.
  7. Aether Raid, offense or defense?

    Always 80. The funny part though is if someone attacks you with a 5 unit offense and they win whilst losing 4 units, that's the same as you winning (+20 to your -80 for every unit defeated) where defense lift loss is concerned.
  8. Aether Raids General Thread

    Yeah, that's me, thanks :> It was more RNG than anything, I was only attacked on 3-4 days, for a total of -200 via defense losses. Offense also feels RNG-heavy at times since not everyone is forced to fight the truly dangerous teams. IIRC it's already near impossible to go from T17 to T19 this week (requires +1700 with no defense losses, while last week was 1700 max with lower aether costs), so yeah this should be a more relaxing week on offense. Might ignore getting the Panic Manor O since perfect offense isn't required to gain a net 700 score this week, which would let me get the 5th defense slot at the end of the season.
  9. Aether Raids General Thread

    Ended at ~6620, so safe for starting at T17 next season. Apparently, according to a friend who is on Page2, there was only about ~57 people who have a score of 6500+ to start in T17 after reset.
  10. That would be nice, I'd love some good 3 effects on f2p units; Festival Micaiah's is still one of my favorites (even though I sadly don't have her) since it's atk+3/dual effectiveness/hardy bearing.
  11. Aether Raids General Thread

    She really is unironically the queen counterpick unit of Aether Raids (we've come full circle, back to TA Raven being a relevant build from the lower ranges of arena last year). I already had a spd/hp +10 Bladetome CC/Vantage Cecilia, but Aether Raids prompted me to build a new atk/hp +0 TA Raven Bowbreaker set for countering quite a few teams. Not only does she counter vero/bowlyn/rein, but with proper res buffs (Brazen atk/res seal is my favorite so far), she can safely bait and kill the dreaded instant AoE Ophelia.
  12. The Grand Hero Battle's Table: Gharnef

    Mixing these 2 ideas is what I thought of: what if (assuming Hrid isn't the next legend, and is instead the free unit for Book3) this month's legendary banner is associated with Mystery and Gharnef? This immediately made me think: if Grima can be a legendary hero, why not Medeus?
  13. New Heroes: Fire and Ice!

    Pretty excited seeing a 2 unit (1 green) banner, that smells like heaven for someone sniping green. I'm also very happy that Surtr got in via a banner instead of being a GHB/TT reward, which would have made him compete against (and lose to) monsters like Duel Skill-wielding Aversa/Young Azura who are my priority for Grails.
  14. It would be nice to have such a mode, especially one where instead of only using the lead units like in GC/RD/VG, all your friends would have a small pool of selected units they'd like to share, so you could use multiple from any friend.
  15. Aether Raids General Thread

    Nice, thanks for your calc confirmations. And It's nice to see the suspicious top rankers losing their big lead over the legitimate perfect run players, there's only one left now. I thought I was going to lose a unit or lose an aether break on my last match of the day, but managed to find a perfect clear on turn3; bless people putting Dazzling on their healers, makes it so much easier.
