Event calendar up.

Looks like we are getting this year’s bridal units on 5/21, considering the previous bridal banners are explicitly mentioned. And that will be followed with another TT+ a few days later.

New BHB with Leif (speaking of which) and Nanna on 5/27.

Summoning focuses on the following: the new refines, dragon fang, BHB, flier formation, and VG.

Mythic hero banner will start on 5/30.

Eir and flyer quests.

And Encore event for Tap Battle, so I feel we aren’t getting much orbs there.

New heroes coming on 6/11 along with the next FB event.

BHB revival with Corrin and Kana and GHB revival with Gharnef.

God, these animated "cutscenes" with the Summoner and the 4 forging bond units are hilariously inappropriate considering the 4 units this time around.

I thought that. ‘The summoner is having a lovely time, standing around a fire in a dark wood with four people possessed by evil dragon gods and turned into violent maniacs’.

It seems like the pattern of alt salt is Camilla, Lyn, Lucina, then back to Camilla, then repeat. Camilla won CYL 3 followed by Legendary Lyn winning the Find and Vote in controversial fashion, so I think we're getting Bridecina.

I think bride Lucina would be out of character
Groom "Marth" tho would be a great addition

We getting either Lucina or Camilla with the other being saved for next year. I think even IS would be reluctant to give us another Camilla so soon but the Summer slot is still open for Lucina so Camilla now and Lucina for Summer would make them the most money.

I think bride Lucina would be out of character
Groom "Marth" tho would be a great addition
Didn't stop them giving Lucina the bride costume in Warirors though.

Groom "Marth" would be great though. Too bad too many manchildren would whine about it for IS to even bother considering it.

It seems like the recent trend of summoning events is characters that would bankrupt me personally, so I'm fully expecting Bridal Mae and Faye.

Wait, didn't we got groom Marth already? I'm sure he was last year's Tempest Trials reward.

Edit. Ah you mean Lucina disguised as Marth as a groom.

Well, damn.

I’ve been playing this game since release and for almost two years I’ve tried to basically play optimally every day, and so far it has resulted in very nice consistent rewards and rarely missing out on stuff, but not many outright achievements. I started AR poorly too and while Light seasons have needed highly merged Eir, Astra hasn’t needed that but has always gone poorly for me. This week tho...

I’ve been poor at making defenses so I took a defense design from FEH streamer Akariss built around IP and Alm and it has ended up being amazing and winning every game. Azura is bonus so I’ve been able to run Ophelia + 4 dancers, and not face many teams posing problems to it. And on the day of the bug, a kind person from the FEH discord had recognized me after I beat him and offered to give me a free def win to me. 5 minutes later I got a defense loss, in immunity.

So here we are. 2 days left. I’m rank #1 in AR and not only that, I still have the chance of t25, which is only possible during Astra weeks if you have a perfect week: no points losses at all. Three games to win, and to pray for no def loss.

What for many has been one of the most disappointed weeks of AR with the bug and everything has turned out to be something truly amazing on a personal note.

I might get a golden throne because of this week's glitch. Not only did I get four easy rematches, but because most people have kept their ladders, I've gotten more successes (my map isn't easy to outright lose against, but is extremely hard to win with no losses, so a lot of successes are people laddering).

This is nice, since I do not like spending orbs for characters other than my jugdral heroes, so basically this astra/anima and the next one are my only chances to realistically get the golden throne. If I don't get it, eh, no big deal.

Delthea GHB wasn’t that hard. Though it’s one of those maps where the enemy AI moves even when you never hit the danger zone!

Tried to sneak attack the firesweep bow flier with my S!Takumi lol.

The blessed wind grounds today was very difficult with that final map being the burger king map. Had to rebless quan and og!reinhardt to get through it (they were water blessed previously, so their blessing didn't matter), but got through it.

I'll probably go through the rest of my wind blessed units and think critically which of these buggers I really want to keep. Sanaki is an odd one, because I'm struggling to think of a better use than just ending her home for 1k feathers. Her statline isn't awful per se, but she just feels like too much work and investment to be acceptable and I know I don't want to put the effort into that.

Pretty much did the same and gave wind blessings to OG!Reinhardt and B!Hector (and just in case, Cherche), considering I managed the water blessing BG maps last week.

Gotta wonder what Earth and Fire will get next.

70 orbs later, I have a +SPD/-HP FBerkut (HP is a superbane, natch) and a +HP/-SPD Tiki.
Lousy stats aside, I've at least kept my Tiki collection complete.

New Blessed Garden was fun. Thank goodness for Air Nino and her ability to cleave through the enemies on the third map.

Delthea really was easy, although that's always nice for me on weekends. Promoted and built her, she kills things. Definitely worthy of spending grails and feathers for. B-skill of course Desperation, because there's few heroes who basically shout "DESPERATION" directly in your face as much as she does.
Though i''m unsure about her A-skill. Death Blow is just reliable in-your-face on initiation, Brazen Atk/Spd is still a bit premium but needed for her Celica-lite build, Fury 3/4 has her enter Desperation range with a single attack if i calculated correctly.

Nickname btw. is Deathea. It's like poetry, it rhymes.

Gotta say, in AA i really, really dread seeing +10 BadCorrin more than Brattiki. I gave my Julia the Close Counter Naga refinement and Mirror stance and those Corrins sometime really manage to outburst her. Maybe i'll switch up QR 2 (yes i'm being cheap) for Vantage.

And btw. IS ... can we PLEASE, for the LOVE of every god in Fire Emblem, have a pullable hero with QR3 available at 4*? Please? Pretty please? With sugar and sparkly flakes on top?

I promoted Fallen Delthea to 5* because I don't really have that many infantry blue mages. I never got a regular Delthea, Linde, Ophelia, or even a good Tailtiu.
All she needs is Desperation, Glimmer, and the Darting Blow Seal.

Saw someone on reddit going full premium on Deathea. +2, Flashing Blade 4, Special Spiral, Even Atk Wave. Blazing Wind as the special, Darting Blow seal, and Summoner Support on S, with 3 Dragonic Flowers.

Was like 38 Spd, which on initiation is baiscally +10, so 48.

I have the fodder (1 Mareeta, 2 Lewyns, and 1 Keaton) but that's a lot of investment. FB4 would make her a monster for sure but she can't do turn-1 AoE special.

So basically, I'm at a bottleneck of feathers I probably won't be able to create more raventome units for some time.

With that said, what are you general strategies for dealing with L!Alm in arena assault?

Did mine yesterday and either let high attack melee attackers go at him, use Reinhardt, or get a mage in Desperation range and double him. Noticed a lot of the people I was going up against were giving him Rally skills, so he would often be the last or second-to-last unit left.

I farmed 8 units this past weekend so I have a surplus of feathers but I don't know what to build right now. Maybe Fae. I should have enough copies to +10 her.

I still spend 120K feathers every arena season to build a new bonus unit (when I don't have a merged bonus unit already), so I'm always in feather poverty. Upcoming L!Hector season could require more investment than that, since arena scores will likely be massively inflated.

I have few raventomes myself, so I've mostly relied on AI manipulation to separate him from his teammates (easier said than done) and player phasing him. It can be tough because he often lags behind in an armor team. Trying to tank him is suicide unless you can land a panic or ploys on him, but of course most of my AA teams can't do that either.

Wow, you give +5 merges to your bonus units? That's a lot of investment. How much are you scoring each season? This week I scored 3746 points and I can't believe that I'm 200 spots from not being able to go up to tier 21. Other seasons 3734+ was enough.

Yeah, I sometimes spend an extra 20K for Aether as well, but it depends on whether I need it... let's see, some of the bonus units I've built in the past include Lon'qu, Olivia (current bonus), Shanna, Tailtiu, Hawkeye, Frederick, and more. I've been able to skip occasionally during the old Fjorm bonus weeks, and also during some of the more recent legendary bonuses.

Depending on the level of competitiveness in a given season, I fish for 748 or 750 matches (3800 or 3810 final score). I expect 748s aren't gonna be enough for at least the next 3 weeks though, and Tier 21 might even require 752+ for the L!Hector weeks.

My Sothe is waiting for his final 3 merges, but I don't dare spend the feathers right now because I'm afraid I'll need them for arena. That's the story for pretty much all my merge projects at this point.

Wow, you must farm HM everyday. My only +10 units are A!Tiki, Nowi, Nino, and Fir. I spent too many feathers for SI and GHB units that I almost never use xD
Garon was finally useful this past season.

I just +10 my Jugdral units, and completely exhausted my HM supply trying to do that. I have a Seliph, Reinhardt, and once the compensation grails come a Finn to merge up.

Alm made this Arena week pretty difficult for me. My team can't deal with him on EP so I had to use my own Alm to deal with him. Scores will probably be inflated since he requires little to no investment to make him kill things.

I had exactly 200 Aether in AR today so it was nice to relax and not worry about breaking any pots.
