ohhh V!-Titania actually might be good too, because there are so few red horse mages! only 3 right? thx for that tip

for Picnic Leo, personally I already have a 5+8 LA-Lilina (and 4+10 Cecilia) for green horse mages, but thx again for extra feedback


ok awesome, thx for the detailed info

this thread is so much better to get gameplay answers than the FEH subreddit
I wouldn't spend grails on V!Titania, even someone like Tharja from the normal pool is fine.

It's just most of Titania's failings have to do with ranged cavs as a whole, not the unit herself.

ohhh dang haha

I actually use horse teams a lot, because I don't really care much about Arena or AR scoring

my main team is 5+4 Hrid, 5+10 Reinhardt, 5+8 LA-Lilina, 5+4 Brave Lyn

Sometimes I think WCecilia doesn't cut it, and then I smite her into a team with Azura buffs and miss out on the pots because she killed everything.

CYL2 banner has been kind to me. I got 2 Veronicas with my free summons, and yesterday I got Micaiah, another Veronica, Nina, and Keaton in less than 70 orbs. The last 2 I didn't even have before.
All I wanted was a neutral Veronica but it wasn't meant to happen. My best one right now is -HP +SPD.
I can finally fix the bane of my other Micaiah (+ATK -RES). I hear she is good for AR.

I've got a pity rate on the CYL 2 banner, but I'm just going to let it go given my "missing pullable units" count is going back to 8 at reset and I like having 155 orbs to start with.

Did/Does anyone else have a total of 9 first-summon tickets for Year-One CYL Hero Fest and 11 tickets for Year-Two? It’s odd that they’re unevenly split up like that...

Compensation tickets!

Though it worked out for my friend who got a Veronica and Celica from CYL2 with their last two tickets.
I got squat, naturally.

I can never interpret Nintendo's time zone announcements, they never make sense or use some weird zone I guess in Asia

but is the new banner tonight, like as in soon from this post??

Pretty much the schedules assume pacific time. You could always look up world clocks on the Internet to see what that particular time would be in your time zone.

No Corn. Again. And I don't feel like spending money. But I did get +Atk bratty Tiki at least, so not completely in vain.

Brattiki! That's a good nick, nice Sterok! ^^ (yes, i included the second "t" to avoid the word "bra")

Got a -Spd (of course) Corrin with my free orbs ... also no money from me, so that's it, if i don't luck out with the tickets.

E:

LOL, the intro to the Forging Bonds ... Princess Fjorm's Thriller!

E2:

Woah, this Forging Bonds is kinda dark and sad.

Berkut partially regaining his mind and looking for Rinea. Darn.

Some units just have an affinity for me.

Wanted a Berkut, but got a -atk+def Wailing Corrin instead.

I’m now able to run a full F.Corrin Emblem team

Well, screw my broom. The fucking tickets gave me 2 DumaBerkuts. +Res / -Spd and +Def / -HP. First time ever i get two free units from such tickets.

Hmm, both boons can be useful, and both banes are ok. Any opinion from you people?

Well after a slew of useless 3-stars I managed to get a session where I pulled two Mareetas. Now to wait another year for the next Thracia character.

Though i'm only one level in, the tone for this Forging Bonds is all over the place; which I guess isn't surprising.

Looks like we're getting compensation orbs (10) AND grails (100) for the AR glitch.
Though whoever lost lift due to the glitch is out of luck.

Totally works for me though.

Came in with 13 orbs, 2 blues, second blue was a +atk -res F!Berkut..... why couldn't I get characters I wanted this easy when I spent money on the game? I'll throw my tickets at blue in the hopes of getting a dupe to remove the res bane or Mordecai.... colorless if no blue.

Got a - spd +res Mareeta off a hero ticket summon, so spent orbs and got a +spd -def one. Merges onto the +spd hero.

A +spd Lene pitybroke me too, so I'll probably use that as base (current Lene is - atk +res).

Gettng a lot of green orbs this banner, sometimes even 3 at a time, I was pretty lucky even though I only got 1 banner unit, in 40 orbs + the tickets I got the new Corrin, a Loki and Mikoto. Loki is a new unit for me.

There's a weird joy in watching a team of Laguz birds wipe the advanced forging bonds maps in 1st turn player phase. Still don't understand why they decided to keep cavalry units nerfed at 157 BST after creating 3 movement fliers with 162.

Pulled a spare Caggy on one circle who is +Atk. Wondering if he's best as fodder or if I should merge. My +Res one gets plenty of kills as it is and I have him set as an enemy phase unit anyway. Not too sure who would get use out of DD4 quite yet though.

Since he's talking about DD4, aka Distant Def 4, it's Caineghis. Though without DD4 i wouldn't have known that either.

Jesus, fought a +10 BadCorrin in AA just now ... she was pushed into my team via Smite from a Mordecai, aka debuff-bonanza. So we're talking about a fully tactic buffed +10 Corrin, who also self-buffed herself +6 because there were no allies of her near ... AND debuffed my whole team via Mordecai's weapon effect.

Needless to say, that was one of my units gone. She's just nasty, yeesh.

Wow, the art for the characters with this new Forging Bonds event is amazing!

It's a shame I could not even begin to care less about any of this new Aether stuff. I still open the game daily but it has been so long since I found it enjoyable.

Final haul from the Hero Fest re-runs after 110 summons (pulled the remaining four stones every time after every free first summon, which worked out pretty well):

• Celica (Brave) x2
• Ephraim (Brave) x2
• Genny
• Hinoka (WF)
• Ike (Brave)
• Karel
• Lewyn
• Linde
• Lyn (Brave)
• Mist
• Sigurd
• Veronica (Brave)

I’m still eagerly awaiting that fateful day when I get three 5* units in a single summon. I got insanely close when I pulled two consecutive 5*s followed by a 3* in one summoning round, and then immediately after summoned another two consecutive 5*s in the next round. Can’t complain about an 80% success rate out of 5 straight summons though. lol

That's how it is for everyone. I think they fucked up and didn't realize that it wasn't 10 for each banner.
Gotcha, thanks for the clarification. I was worried I somehow missed out on some tickets.

Went in with my whole 10 orbs and got...nothing. But it's no surprise.

At least I still have my 3 W!Eirikas from using hundreds of orbs trying (and failing) to pull for L!Alm.

sigh

The story in Book 3 is much more interesting compared to *cough cough*
Honestly, I consider it a step down. There was at least some amount of effort put into Laegjarn, Laevatein and Helbindi, dialogue had a bit more substance to it and there was some effort to tell a coherent war story, barebones as it was. Book 3 had an alright start but quickly devolved into the sort of low effort plot and scenes that wouldn't be out of place in Book 1. Leif and the other chick are non-characters, Hel is somehow even less entertaining than Surtr (also less irritating, though at least he made me feel something), Eir is just as much of a wet noodle as Fjorm but gets a free pass because she's hot goth gf. There are more interesting concepts here and there but they're largely unexplored and/or badly executed. So far the narrative has been this silly scooby-doo esque chase of Hel throwing curses at Alfonse without any clear goal, purpose, sense of progression or direction. It's such a whole bunch of nothing. Book 2 at least had better character interactions and a less meandering, more purposeful narrative.

So I’m not certain about this but say I was to get an extra Mareeta. Theoretically I would fodder that extra for FB4 to Mia. Would the +5 true damage not stack with Mia’s prf weapon’s wo doa effect?

Assuming you meet the speed check, the +5 would stack with the +10 Wo dao damage.

In general, extra stats/damage that are given *during combat* stack, whereas extra stats given at start of turn ("bonuses") do not stack.

~70 orbs and the tickets, and I got horse Chrom and Ishtar, already had both, but with just okay IVs. I also don't use them, so I might as well just give even atk wave to my nino. And my very last summon was a +spd Berkut. Thats... not great, but at least I got one focus.

Also, B3 story is at least getting somewhere now. The fact that Lif may be pulling a Lucina on us is already enough to put it way ahead of the entire B2 imo.

Berkut sure is something. In the Forging Bonds, all the women are doing their own little character story and Berkut keeps showing up shouting "POWER!!!!!!!!" at them. It's kinda surreal.

I went colorless on all my summon tickets and missed on all of 'em. Ah well. Hopefully we get a decent arena rotation when it's their turn.

Where I'm at he had an encounter with Tiki. He's now convinced that Rinea will be summoned eventually and they'll be together. It's sad.

It should also apply to Karla's Vassal Blade, where she can get +12 damage per hit with FB4 if all her speed checks hit.

And if you have a fast infantry archer with Shining Bow, they should stack the bonus damage as well though it's using different stats.
Interesting as well. Don’t have either sadly. ;_;

Would have been interesting with Ayra as well, if her prf weapon didn’t already halve FB built in. I mean one could give her slaying edge with SPD refine, though that would mean switching out swift sparrow with FB4 and SS isn’t a sacred seal as of now. Would leave consider (dare I say it) the phantom speed seal, though don’t know about that.

Edit: Threw in 3 tickets and got Mareeta! Could have had better IVs: DEF+/RES-, but should still be salvageable with none of her important stats hindered at least! And even with the IVs, can’t see myself foddering her for right now.

But about damn time a ticket gives me a focus unit. Can’t remember if any did give me an off-focus unit; otherwise I’ve always got squat with tickets. Just leaves one to ticket to grab on FB, though don’t hope to get anyone else. Really wanted to get F!Berkut as well.

First ticket gets me... Mareeta! -Spd... At least she might be good fodder if I ever get a better copy of her?

I mean you gotta be certain the unit you would give FB4 to has great speed, as we discussed momentarily ago which units could make great use of it. Otherwise, she is another unit that can also be foddered for null follow-up.

And Mia is the only unit that can get both, considering she’s the only unit with FB3 as a skill. Though still pretty debatable on how well it synergizes with her.

I'm actually surprised how well Leif is working as a galeforce unit since I've given him Joint Hone Speed. Albeit, I've only seen him in PvE context, not with inflated stats or in AR.

Light Brand's niche is surprisingly good for galeforcing, and S Drink means he doesn't need to bother with quickened/infantry pulse. Leif has a pitiful 33 attack (49 with light brand); however, very few enemies have bulk less than 49 (or 52, 53, and 54, if you use Fury, SS2, or LnD respectively). This means against low defense enemies, who tend to have higher res, Leif avoids one-shotting becasue of his poor might; but on high defense enemies who might otherwise be too bulky to avoid death, Light Brand's +7 true damage really helps.

My only real issue if once we move to inflated stats or something like AR, and even then, Navarre is probably better because of Scarlet Sword.
