  1. I'm too tired to be hyped for everything that was announced... That's what tomorrows for. Time to start saving orbs for the huge summoning event on the 27th.
  2. FEH balancing issues?

    It could be better, but the game isn't broken by the unbalanced aspects. I see it like a cycle. A strong character is introduced which outclasses previous units, thus making them pointless (unless if you're willing to do some major investing). Then another character of a similar vein is introduced which overthrows the previous. The cycle continues. Older characters don't always become completely outclassed, just not as preferred. Here's an example: Every Archer But Takumi During Base Game - Takumi was obviously the best, but some of the archers still found some usage. But honestly, if you had a Takumi, you wouldn't need anything else. Takumi and Klein (To an Extent) - Both of these units were better than the other archers by a considerable margin at this point. Klein had an amazing kit out of the box and Takumi had Close Counter. But then... Bride Cordelia - Many say that Bride Lyn redefined the meta. That is only true to an extent. By herself, she was pretty good. However, what actually redefined the meta was Skill Inheritance (which started making a difference with units like B!Cordelia). By taking Life and Death plus Brave Bow+ and slapping it onto B!Cordelia, you created a monster. With that, Takumi fell into the void of irrelevance... Brave Lyn - Then Brave Lyn came out of nowhere. Unlike B!Cordelia who relied on Skill Inheritance to make a difference, B!Lyn was amazing with her standard kit. Somehow, a unit in their base form outclassed a unit that became amazing through using aspects of other units. It didn't help that everybody had a chance at getting Brave Lyn. In theory, it is only a matter of time until another unit outclasses B!Lyn (if that is possible). While even units from the base game are "usable", they require much more attention than other units. Plus, since we have top-tier units that require specific units/builds to defeat, an endless cycle is created. A unit is introduced. The meta forms around said unit/another unit outclasses it. IS has been doing a decent job at not completely destroying the balance (since any unit is theoretically able to defeat any unit), but it will get to a point where it must be addressed.
  3. Official Pull Topic

    As much as I wanted ToD! Nowi, I'm afraid that I've given up. After purposely NOT pulling for greens/grey in order to have a better chance at not pulling a 5* Focus of that variety, my latest summon didn't have a red orb forcing me to pull a grey... Which gave me ToD! Jakob. Considering that it broke my pity rate, I've given up on this banner and want to move on to the Death Blow banner. But at least I got my 2nd favorite unit from the ToD banner. Beggars can't be choosers I suppose. Now I just have to try pulling for a Delthea and fail.

    It's safe to say that we'll be getting a Warriors banner sometime, so here's my idea for it: New Heroes: Warriors of Aytolis Rowan - Brash Prince (Infantry, Sword) "The prince of Aytolis who is the brother of Lianna. He is often reckless in his actions and often clashes with his sister, but he is dedicated to becoming a knight nevertheless." 43/33/32/28/21 Weapon: Enliron (16 MT. If unit is attacked by foe using sword, axe, lance, or dragonstone, unit receives Def/Res+4 during combat.) Special: Draconic Aura Specials: Defiant Atk, Brash Assault Lianna - Cautious Princess (Infantry, Sword) "The princess of Aytolis who is the sister of Rowan. When compared to her brother, she is careful with her actions but would rather not take up the throne, instead wanting her brother to take it." 39/30/36/21/31 Weapon: Facinna (16 MT. If unit is attacked by foe using bow, daggers, magic, or staff, unit receives Def/Res+4 during combat.) Assist: Reposition Skills: Cancel Affinity, Breath of Life Darios - Warding Prince (Infantry, Sword) "A close friend of Rowan and Lianna who was tasked with protecting them by Queen Yelena. Though he left and betrayed his own kingdom, he is loyal to Aytolis and fights to save it." 45/31/27/30/24 Weapon: Risyl (14 MT. Neutralizes "effective against" bonuses.) Special: Astra Skills: Guard, Savage Blow I would have liked to not just have sword units, but I literally only had three characters to pick from. It also didn't help that there isn't much information to go off of when it comes to these characters since they're from a Warriors game.

    Let's make some Holiday units! For now, I'll focus on Fates. Felicia - Holiday Helper (Infantry, Green Tome) "One of Corrin's retainers who is skilled in combat, but less-than impressive with her maid duties. Was put in charge of assisting others with preparing their gifts, but usually ends up wrapping herself up instead." 28/31/36/18/34 Weapon: Present Tome+ (12 MT. Grants Res+2 during combat when this unit is attacked. Slows Special trigger (cooldown count+1). Adds total bonuses on unit to damage dealt.) Special: Moonbow Skills: Pass, Panic Ploy Xander - Gifting Presence (Cavalry, Bow) "Eldest prince of Nohr who would do anything for his family. Aims to bring happiness to all of Nohr by using his horse as a reindeer while delivering presents in the night." 41/35/23/28/21 Weapon: Decorative Bow+ (13 MT. Enables unit whose own HP is ≤ 50% to warp adjacent to any ally.) Assist: Swap Skills: Attack Def, Spur Def Res Elise - Cheerfully Sweet (Cavalry, Lance) "Youngest princess of Nohr who lightens up any conversation with her innocent demeanor. Spreads the holiday spirit by giving gifts to others, no matter who they are." 33/34/36/20/31 Weapon: Candy Cane Lance+ (12 MT. If unit is attacked by foe using bow, daggers, magic, or staff, unit receives Def/Res+4 during combat.) Assist: Swap Skills: Cancel Affinity, Hone Atk Kagero - Festively Fierce (Infantry, Blue Tome) "A ninja of Hoshido who is more than capable of battling, but also likes to paint pictures. Was put in charge of decorating for the holiday, but others don't seem to understand her decorative taste." 34/35/36/19/25 Weapon: Aurora Tome+ (13 MT. After combat, foe suffers Atk/Res-3 through its next action.) Special: Luna A Skill: Mirror Strike New C Skill - Aurora Pulse: Grants +4 Spd/Res at start of turn 1 for any Infantry allies with at least 1 more HP than unit. (Effects will stack with similar skills.) Takumi - Festively Resistant (Infantry, Red Tome) "Youngest prince of Hoshido who is focused on becoming strong to a fault. Says that he had a dream where three ghosts visited him and told him about his past, present, and future. Nobody believes him." 37/35/33/25/17 Weapon: Light Tome+ (12 MT. If unit initiates attack, foes within 2 spaces of target take 5 damage after combat.) Assist: Shove Skills: Guard, Spd Ploy Leo - Cold-Hearted Celebrator (Cavalry, Sword) "Youngest prince of Nohr who is competitive at everything he does. Even though tomatoes don't grow during winter, he still enjoys the season since it's always cold." 34/35/26/22/34 Weapon: Leo's Iceblade+ (14 MT. If unit's Res is equal to or greater than foe's Res, unit attacks twice when initiating attack.) Special: Glacies Skills: Defiant Atk, Atk Smoke
  6. I think that I summoned Mae and Summer Leo on my first pull on their respective banners. I believe that I got Clair on the first day of her respective banner as well.

    Since I can't think of a batch of units to make, I'll expand upon my OC with some changes. Caleb - Aloof Adventurer (Infantry, Sword) "A normal human being who got transported to an unfamiliar world against his will. He has now formed a band of mercenaries in order to serve in a kingdom's army and get himself out of this world." 32/30/30/26/31 Weapon: Korudosai (16 MT. If unit is attacked by foe using bow, daggers, magic, or staff, unit receives Def/Res+4 during combat.) Special: Luna A Skill: Mirror Strike B Skill: Guard New C Skill - Aurora Pulse: Allies within 2 spaces of unit receive -1 Special Cooldown at the start of next turn if they were attacked by a tome/staff user this turn. Note: Korudosai does have some meaning behind it. I remember finding two words in Japanese and combined them to make this word. However, I don't know what the words are. Summoning Quote: Greetings. I'm Caleb, a mercenary from another world that you need not know of. Just know that I fight for myself. But since you summoned me, I might as well help you. It's not like I have anything better to do now that I'm here. Select Quotes: Yes? Direct me to battle. I'll knock them down. Critical Quotes: May your impertinence lead you to defeat! You're challenging me? How infantile. I can see your every move! Your luck ran out when you challenged me! Learn Skill: A new skill? This better help me. Level Up: Bad - Tch... Average - I can do better. Luckily, you haven't seen the true extent of my power! Good - Expect this to help me more than it does you. 4-Star Quotes: Be glad that I'm willing to fight for you. Otherwise, I'd strike you down. Whatever power I gain must help me get back to my home world... Otherwise, it'd be all for nothing. Back with my group of mercenaries, I was their leader and tactician. I can hold my own in battle, but I'm used to leading other people to do that for me. This is the second world I've been sent to against my will. You better make it worth my time. What's with people and their fancy long swords? They're basically sharp sticks! I prefer a short sword. 5-Star Quotes: I don't like doing work for other people... But I can tolerate helping you. I may not say it often, but the mercenaries I worked with were good people. Some of them were oddballs, but entertaining at the least. Castle Quotes: I like to always look my best even in battle. Should I die on the battlefield, I want at least die looking the best I can, which is amazing by the way. People often criticize the short sword. I don't understand why. So many heroes use regular swords, so I just want to stand out. I must say that the women here are quite... Unique compared to the world I originally came from. Not that I'm complaining. Confession: Hey, want to know something? I don't just use the short sword. I can also use some magic and even a bow! What? You say that it's good to know? Don't expect me to use those skills for you! I only know how to do those things for my own sake. But... I suppose that if you were on the brink of death, I'd use everything at my disposal to save you. I don't think of myself as one, but I'm a hero no matter how hard I try. Maybe battling for you and your world isn't so bad.

    It's time to try something different. This is my attempt to make some of my own "Brave Units" without making them too OP. Welp. Here goes nothing. Alm - Brave Hero King (Infantry, Sword) "A young man who grew up in Ram Village, but later became the wielder of the Falchion. He's saved Valentia and defeated Duma with his divine blade." 40/36/27/31/23 Weapon: Unsealed Falchion (16 MT. Effective against dragons. If unit's Spd is less than foe's Spd, unit gains Special cooldown charge +1 per attack. (If using other similar skill, only highest value applied.) Special: Scendscale - Grants +60% to Atk. 5 Cooldown. Cannot be inherited. New A Skill: Boost of Valentia - If unit has at least 5 more HP than enemy at the start of combat, unit receives Atk/Def +3 during combat. B Skill: Guard Corrin (Female) - Brave Royal (Infantry, Blue Tome) - Note: In Nohrian Royal Outfit "Of Hoshidian royalty , but chose to become a Nohrian Princess. Cares for her family deeply and is dedicated to reforming Nohr from the inside out." 37/35/34/18/26) Weapon: Dark Fimbulvetr (16 MT. Grants +3 Res. If unit is attacked by foe using bow, daggers, magic, or staff, unit receives Def/Res+6 during combat.) Special: Dark Dragon Fang - Grants +50% to Atk. 3 Cooldown. Cannot be inherited. B Skill: Wings of Mercy New C Skill: Nohrian Trust - For every enemy unit within 2 spaces of unit, allies receive +2 in Atk/Res. Robin (Female) - Brave Tactician (Infantry, Green Tome) A tactician of Ylisse and one of Chrom's closest allies.

Unit automatically makes a follow-up attack if attacked at HP ≥ 70%.) Special: Moonbow A Skill: Swift Strike New C Skill: Tactical Pulse - At the start of every turn, allies within within 1 space of unit recover 5 HP. Units within 2 spaces recover 3 HP. ... I honestly can't think of a 4th unit. So, that's about it.

    This is a continuation of my last post about the Alm and his group in costumes for a play. Check it out (should be on the previous page) if you haven't seen it. Tobin - Practical Actor (Cavalry, Lance) "Alm's childhood friend who grew up in Ram Village. Much to his dismay, he is set to play the part of a villager in the play... Despite already being an actual villager. Often voices his complaints but is told to shut up." 39/34/22/35/23 Weapon: Rustic Lance+ (12 MT, If unit initiates attack, the unit moves 1 space away after combat. Foe moves into unit's previous space.)

C Skill: Threaten Spd Lukas - Stern Director (Infantry, Sword) "A member of the Deliverance who remains calm and collected, even during the heat of battle.

    Before I say anything, big thanks to KiwiScribble for reviewing some of my units! Now that I know people (or at least a person) is looking at this thread and analyzing our works, I should actually try to make my units balanced! Thanks. I'll look more into balanced stat spreads! I can't come up with any good original themes, so... Here are some Echoes characters with a unique theme! The theme is based around acting positions! Imagine Alm and his village (plus his other allies) setting up a village making them all wear costumes. Also, ignore the fact that Berkut is in this despite this theoretically taking place after Echoes. Faye - "Distressed" Damsel (Infantry, Staff) "Childhood friend of Alm who has a strong affection for him. Wanted to be princess locked in a tower so that Alm would rescue her, but became the backup actor when Clair was chosen over her." 35/26/29/34/24 Attack: Slow Assist: Martyr Special: Imbue A Skill: HP Def New C Skill: Distress Call - When healing an ally, the ally is given +3 in every stat. This skill does not activate when healing through a special and cannot be inherited. Alm - Charming Farmboy (Cavalry, Sword) "Son of Rudolf who grew up in Ram Village. Has earned the lead part in the play and is the charming prince of the story who must save the princess in the tower." 42/36/27/33/19 Weapon: Heroic Blade+ (13 MT, Grants Def+6 during combat when this unit is attacked.) Assist: Draw Back Skills: Sturdy Blow, Guard Kliff - Cynical Sidekick (Infantry, Red Tome) "One of Alm's childhood friends.

Special: Luna Skills: Fire Boost, Drive Atk Clair - Captive Princess (Infantry, Lance) "Clive's sister who "secretly" loves Alm.

Assist: Smite Skills: Pass, Axe Experience

    I want to make some Halloween units... From Conquest (because if there was a banner like this, it would probably be Fates anyways, specifically, Nohr). This is based off of the "Nohrian Festival of Bonds" DLC from Fates. It's essentially a Nohrian Halloween festival. Summon Banner: Nohrian Bonds Festival Selena - Outspokenly Scornful (Infantry, Red Tome) "The retainer of Camilla with a past life in another world. To celebrate the festival, she's taken up a witch attire (not that she likes it or anything)." 36/33/35/30/22 Weapon: Blood Moon Tome+ (13 MT, Grants Atk/Def +3 at start of turn if unit's HP ≤ 50%.) Special: Luna Skills: Swift Strike, Savage Blow Camilla - Captivating Force (Flier, Lance) "Princess of Nohr who will strike anyone who threatens her family down. Aims to captivate others, especially Corrin, by dressing up as a Succubus for the Nohrian festival." 32/34/36/25/28 Weapon: Blood Lust Lance+ (14 MT, Accelerates Special Cooldown Trigger -1). Special: Vengeance Skills: Knock Back, Atk Smoke Leo - Harrowing Horseman (Cavalry, Blue Tome) "Prince of Nohr who despises impertinent individuals.

Assist: Draw Back Skills: Desperation, Ward Cavalry Flora - Cold of Heart (Infantry, Dagger) "Corrin's retainer who has ties to the Ice Tribe. In order to maintain her dedicated demeanor, she has resorted to only wearing a "more extravagant" version of her usual maid outfit." 31/33/31/21/34 Weapon: Dark Dagger+ (12 MT, Inflicts 7 damage to foe after any combat this unit initiates.) Special: Iceberg Skills: Mirror Strike, Def Ploy I think these actually turned out okay. I have a few more ideas, so I might make a few more units soon. How could I not make Camilla like that? Don't blame me. Blame the temptation.

    Apparently, self-insert characters are a popular thing now... Welp... Here I go. Caleb - Aloof Adventurer (Infantry, Sword) 32/30/30/26/31 Weapon: Silver Short Sword (14 MT, Units can pass through foes if its own HP ≥ 50%.) Special: Luna Skills: Triangle Adept, Savage Blow Caleb - Brave Adventurer (Infantry, Sword) 32/34/36/28/31 Weapon: Korudosai (16 MT, Grants +3 Res, Enables unit to counterattack regardless of distance to attacker.)

A and B Skills: Mirror Strike, Cancel Affinity New C Skill - Aurora Veil: Allies within 2 spaces of unit receive -1 Special Cooldown at the start of next turn if they were attacked by a tome/staff user this turn. I know the last one is probably overpowered. But who's self-insert isn't?

    I've got the idea to make units based on character's promoted class... Primarily main characters. By the way, these are meant to be as broken as possible. Even more than the CYL units. Corrin (Female) - Nohrian Royal (Infantry, Blue Tome) 35/38/30/22/30 Weapon: Dark Lightning (14 MT, Accelerates Special Cooldown) Special: Dark Dragon Fang - 4 Cooldown, Damage is Boosted by 80% of Atk Skills: Mirror Strike, Vantage Corrin (Male) - Hoshidian Royal (Infantry, Green Tome) 38/35/36/30/22 Weapon: Light Mist (14 MT, Slows Opponent's Special Trigger) Special: Light Dragon Fang - 3 Cooldown, Damage Boosted by 50% of Atk Skills: Death Blow, Fortify Res Alm - Another Hero King (Infantry, Sword) 36/40/23/32/24 Weapon: Unsealed Falchion (16 MT, Can counterattack regardless of distance, Effective against dragons) Special: Scendscale (Damage is Boosted by 50% of Atk, Units within 2 spaces of target receive 20% of damage) Skills: Triangle Adept, Windsweep That's about all I've got for this.
