  1. Official Pull Topic

    I'm hoping to be able to pull Winter Tharja from the next Legendary Banner. Emphasis on "hoping to" considering how, even with hundreds of orbs, odds are I won't ever pull her. Still, I won't give up! No more spending until the Legendary Banner comes out. The summer units may be tempting, but I pretty much cleaned out the first round of summer units, other than Gaius and Frederick, from the whole year of pulling. So at the very least, the theme probably won't be enough to crack me. Bring on the bikinis and bathing suits! My orbs stay with me! Although a summer Ryoma wielding a comically oversized lobster as a weapon would be hysterical.

    Got up to a grueling 4.5% on the Fangs banner, but it finally paid off with a +Atk/-Def Sigurd and a +Def/-Res Giga Nino! That's a load off, but I need to brace myself a bit better for saving up orbs.
  3. Legendary Hero: Ryoma, Supreme Samurai

    Yay Ryoma has an alt now! Didn't expect him to be the legendary hero, but he is pretty cool. I have W!Robin, Y!Tiki, Fjorm and Gunnthra, so overall it would be pretty likely for me to pull a character I need. High priority: Grima, Hardin, Ryoma, and Chrom. I need to be careful with this banner since I know for sure there are going to be units on the next legendary banner that I 100% want.
  4. Your rarest character(s)?

    I think my rarest are Young Tiki from the first Hero Fest, and Elincia, from her own banner. But yeah, looking back on it now, I guess Elincia really hasn't been on many banners, huh? I don't really know why, she's a pretty good character. Same thing with Tiki, she's my go-to Brave Lyn counter.

    Had a stressful week and have been pretty successful in saving up my orbs, getting to 114! Huzzah! Decided that another 20 orbs on the bride banner wouldn't hurt too much, despite not knowing the units for the next Legendary Banner. Poor decision or not, my orbs got me a Bride!Ninian! +Spd/-Def, literally perfect, so that's awesome! The Tempest Trial will replenish my orbs before the next banner, and I'm crossing my fingers for some awesome units!
  6. Official Pull Topic

    I cracked a little bit and spent some of my ~80 or so orbs on the Genealogy banner since I had a 3.50% pity rate and the Tempest Trial is coming up and all... and for once, a rash decision was rewarded! Got a +Res/-Def Ishtar after 9 Orbs (the other unit was a 3-star Olivia)! Huzzah! Definitely the unit I wanted the most from this banner, and I hope that Lene is demoted because I WILL promote her for Sword Valor 3 if I have to.
  7. The Worst of the Best

    HP - Normal Kagero - 28 because she's +Res/-HP. ATK - Bridal Lyn - 38 because she's +Res/-ATK. DEF - Delthea - 8 because I read this very thread and decided Life and Death 3 would make for some fun instead of her vanilla Deathblow 3 :D SPD - Arden - 11 because as he says, he's strong and tough but not fast at all! Brave Sword+ doesn't help much either. RES - Takumi - 14 because of his +ATK/-Res IVs, which is one of his best, actually :D First Takumi I got from the Hero Fest banner of yore. For total stats, the lowest is, hilariously enough, Bridal Cordelia with 149! Even though she's destroyed several Tempest Trials and PVE content with naught but a dancer to back her up. Fun stuff!
  8. They all look so cool! Wasn’t expecting Tharja but hey, she’s sarcastic and in a black dress so sure! But I must remain strong for the Legendary banner in case Winter Tharja is there. Or really, any other units I really want. Winter Chrom or Lissa would be amazing as well. Maybe Hardin or M!Grima too... Anyway! Brides look great, their skills are interesting and best case scenario I get one as the free summon and don’t have to worry about it! Probably won’t happen, but stranger things have occurred.
  9. Special heroes of the 21st May

    I'm convinced that's Ninian, and I'm cool with that. She's neat! No idea who the other person is though... they're really thin. Some brought up maybe Nino, and I think that'd be adorable, but I don't know if I'd say she's "bride" material because she's still 14 or so. If it's Tharja... eeeeh? I like Tharja, but she'd probably kill someone for making her don a wedding dress. Plus, the "normal girl" thing has already been done in Heroes, so making a second alt based on that would be a stretch. As for other characters, I hope Anna's on the banner because continuity! Plus, there's plenty of humor to be had with, say, trying not to get her dress dirty so she can pawn it off to the highest bidder later on or something. Or maybe referencing the incredible expenses it takes to even put on a wedding in the first place? The jokes write themselves. Either way, I'm still saving up for the next Legendary Banner, so unless they pull some REALLY amazing stuff on this one, I'm probably not going to spend many Orbs, if any. That said, good luck to those who do!

    Through much pain that will see me going off of even summoning for a while... I got a new unit in Shiro. +Res/-Spd. At least he's something! I find it hilarious actually. The last banner I tried this hard for was the first Hero Fest, which I got to an annoyingly high pity rate and got Shiro's father Ryoma as my final "pity breaker," though Ryoma was a focus unit. Like father like son, they say. No more orb-spending for me until Winter Tharja comes back. Though this banner has stymied my hopes a bit on that front... ah well, onward and upward. Good luck everyone!

    The Hinoka banner is destroying me... 5.75% and no 5*s in sight. Got a 3* Nino, two 4* Merrics, and a 3*Barst. Send help... Just want pega-pony princess with chicken... Edit: I know K!Hinoka is colorless, at this point I just want it to end x.x
  12. Official Pull Topic

    I'm right there with ya. I've dropped about 100 orbs on this banner hoping for Hinoka, but came away with nothing but a 4-star Nanna (new!) but only fodder otherwise... I have 2 orbs now. Terrible idea right before the Legendary banner, but... Hinoka >< I wish you and everyone else the best of luck in summoning! And hope my own improves as well.
  13. Official Pull Topic

    That's a fantastic idea! 66 Atk with no buffs other than the A-skill? Yes please :3 And congrats on your great pity breakers! Also, I somehow managed to get a 4-star Hinata among the influx of red 4-stars, but you know? I'll take the lowered rarities any day.

    The Combat Bonus banner hit a weak point in me. Ayra, Sonia, AND Brave Lyn!? All of them are great and I don't have the former two, so I decided to pull a bit. ~80 Orbs later, I didn't get any of the focus units, but I did get a Zelgius, normal Ike, and Horse!Eirika :D Zelgius and Ike came one after the other in the same session. It seems they truly are bound by fate. Also, a new unit in horse-mounted Restoration Lady, so I'm happy! I just hope that I can get as lucky on the next Legendary banner if Winter Tharja is on it. All of them had sub-par/terrible IVs compared to my present units, so I'm pondering merging Ike, and wondering who would like Fierce Stance the most...

    Thank you! I wish you the best of luck on all of your summoning endeavors as well
