W!Cecilia up to +9 now. With the 100 apology grails coming, only ~380 grails to go.

Would giving her DD4 and potentially getting her max combat Res to the mid-60s/low-70s be overkill and a waste of resources? Thinking about making her a ranged AR specialist.

I gave her DD4, its been great. She already had DD3 so it was a pretty easy choice. Snagged distant guard alongside it since she already had VF

Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and took the plunge... Should be fun this for Light Blessing week AR.

Even if it ends up being too much Res, maybe it'll end up being future-proofing for some later shenanigans.

dang, you are 20 lift from a perfect season.
Yeah, I got hit by -20 final day. The guy had no ladders left, and he lost 3 units in first three turns, but he managed to hang on two win with his last two.

Five minutes after I got three defense wins, heh.

So no perfect week or #1 but still my first time on a leaderboard on end of season!

APOLOGY ORBS!

Got 2k Aether Dew again, so it's time that either my Atk or Def Fortress see lvl 5. Guess i'll go with Atk first, my def teams are reliable enough to not get too many losses.

Wanted to free pull blue for maybe a Sully or better IV Lukas, as my only 5* has -Def and i'm too cheap to drop feathers, but only got colorless, red and green. So i have a 4* Jeorge more now, aka 300 feathers.

Though, i should start spending some feathers, really. Again at 302k with the feathers from the Arena and AA rewards, or 305k with the reward for the first Arena win this season.

Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and took the plunge... Should be fun this for Light Blessing week AR.

Even if it ends up being too much Res, maybe it'll end up being future-proofing for some later shenanigans.
If you're up for some premium skill inheritance for her, may i suggest the newest Warding Stance 4 instead of DD4? The cooldown reset might prove more useful than the null bonus on DD4. Granted, you'd lose out on the +8 Def from DD4, but a Def Tactic provider and some Wards/Drives can take care of that.

---

E: What? A third week of the picnic units as Arena bonus units? Ah man, i was ready to field my Badkut + WoM/Escape Route/Desperation team.

I put most of my recent feather savings into creating a 40+6 OG Eliwood.
With today's apology grails and orbs I was able to get:
- another LA! Eliwood merge (only two more to go!)
- another Fallen Corrins, she's +atk this time
I gave one of my Corrins to my +HP Mordecai. He's now my infantry pulse and sudden panic guy and sits at 58 hp. Hopefully I can get more copies of him down the line.
Since I also 5 stared a fallen Delthea I am now all out of resources.

My goodness FEH... I just want a mad Berkut. Stop giving me rolls with no blue orbs, and then pity breaking me with FCorrin.

Compensation orbs plus daily rewards got me Matthew, Wrys and FCorrin

Got a 5* +spd Mordecai while hunting for Berkut. Hurts me more than it should. :/
Also got Null Follow-up fodder. Guess it might be useful on Caineghis since I use him as a tank in AR?

Ah man, had to report two cheaters in Arena again, man what a pain in the ass this reporting is.

First one had an unmerged, non-full-heatlh Tharmor survive with 1 HP no matter what unit of mine attacked, and no she didin't have Miracle. And yes, a Radiant Aether from LIke, as it was ready to hit on the first attack, would have killed her definitely.
The other had an Idunn with 64 Def and Res .... like how the heck does this person think that they're not immediately spotted as a cheater?

These lowlifes really piss me off. If you're that weak of a character to push your low self-esteem by cheating, just stop playing anything that has PVP in it. You're making your own, and even more importantly, other lifes more easy.

Aaaaand third cheater. Seriously, get a life you scum. Surtr vs LIke again, Surtr only ~ 30% HP left, Radiant Aether ready on my Ike, Surtr did NOT have Vantage. Surtr attacks first on my LIke's initiation and kills him.

It's not only those fucking cheater pieces of shit. NOT IT'S EVEN ASSHOLES WHO'RE CHEATING OBVIOUS IN YOUR FACE. Fucking christ.

I think I had the same thing happen the other day. It was my off week in arena in T21 so I was just doing beginner battles and not paying much attention. I was just quickly tapping through on auto battle but it looked like the other unit attacked me first on player phase without vantage. I guess I’ll just have to be more vigilant about this.

Free pull and four tickets netted me none of the focus units. I was gunning for Tiki/Corrin, and got a total of about six colorless orbs. This morning I took the free pull on the new weapon refine banner thinking I'd go for Faye... No colorless orbs.

This game's probably trying to tell me something. In the meantime, it's back to saving orbs.

I did a full pull on the fallen banner today and pulled a Brave Celica.

????

Okay, I guess. That's all the CYL heroes obtained, I guess.

Still trying to get Berkut, still failing. No pity breakers yet, but with my pity rate every blue orb is a high tension situation.

Pulled the trigger on W!Cecilia and gave her a bunch of merges. Not much SI yet, but watching her tank Ophelia without a scratch has already made her investment worth it.

You're making it hard to resist the Santa Cecilia hype train. ^^

I just noticed that i have two 4* Mordecais with good boons, +Def and +Atk. Guess i'll build him up, seems to be one heck of a physical tank. Initially, i wanted to go with the +Def one, but his weapon gives him +3 Def already and with high merges it might enter obsolete tier, promoting the +Atk one and keeping the +Def one as a backup.

There's something wrong with the game if i'm more exicted about possible 4* heroes build ups than i am for new heroes ... we definitely need more grindable PVE content.

Winter Cecilia was one of the better investments I made; however, L!Alm hurts that investment just by existing. I can't say I'd recommend it now, mostly because while she can eat Ophelia, you're out of options when Ophelia and Alm exist together. The best way to enemy phase Alm is to one shot him or outspeed him; the latter is usually more viable but requires a drivebot.

I have feeling someone like Kaze is more appropriate for the current meta. He has speed and resistance, and his attack is often good enough. But that's me theorycrafting.

Watching Caineghis get ORKO'd by Wo Dao L!Eirika is becoming my new favorite thing in defense replays. It's such a noob trap, I don't know why people keep parking high defense units in her range.

Join the Cecilia Crew. You know you want to. :p

Mordecai is kind of a weird unit with all that defense, you were right to go with +Atk. They designed him to Smite in allies for either EP sweeps or Galeforce. But he always ends up so out-of-the-way that his great physical enemy phase usually ends up irrelevant. Seems like he could be a good arena cheerleader.

My Cecilia has been eating LAlm for lunch

VF, Bonfire, DD4, DD3, default dagger. +5 and +5 flowers. She has 56 defense minimum when Alm initiates. Usually 62 minimum since I always have a +6 buff. Generally more than that with fortress advantage and drive defense.

Just look at her, shes beautiful

And she dies to Alm: http://imgur.com/a/XfiKSbk

Like, okay, you've probably seen her *kill* Alm with a mix of:
  • Eir boost (+5 hp helps)
  • Fortress advantage
  • Alm not precharging your special
  • No dancer behind Alm
  • B skill that isn't null follow up
But Eir is only an option every other week, fortress advantage will stop being a thing soon, you have to prepare for IP team Alm (Luna is better than his prf, but it's the same story regardless), and dancers are a given. And I'm not even assuming they give merges or give Alm his best A slot (which is probably sturdy impact).

But I'm taking your Cecilia, assuming you give her full +6 buffs, +6 drives outside of her goodie boot, and S support for good measure. You force a draw, a dancer swoops in, dances Alm, and she dies ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, L!Alm is some mighty fine BS.

oh right, I forgot about the -10 attack on Alm, oh you are also assuming infantry pulse. Im not bothering EPing those teams, fuck that. Thats what galeforce horses are for

I have less issues with L'Alm than with the onslaught of +10 armor dragons i've to face in Arena the last few seasons. Normally i'm able to build up and support my bonus unit enough to also handle WT disadvantage, but there's only so much a slightly or even non-merged unit can take from +10 BatMyrrhs, Likis, Idunns, and less so Grimale. L'Alm though is easy to kite and position, and usually (99,5%) dies with one hit to my bonus units.

These are the sole reason why my Titania has Reciprocal Aid as her assist. And Surtr is the reason my LIke still has QR3 as his B-skill, despite not intended to kill enemies. Though sometimes his default Seal Atk/Def 2 would come in more handy, depending on what skills Surtr has in the A-slot.

L'Alm will become less of an annoyance once earth season is over. Brattiki though will just make my bigger problem more annoying. ^^

If you have a Julia or Deirdre, it's worth building them. Though i'll have to run some calcs if i can push my +7 Julia (thanks pity breakers) to get a decent score without having to use the Green Infantry Duel skill which i don't have right now. ^^

E:

If those Three Houses spoilers are true, i can already guess the alts that the three lords will get in FEH down the road ... or at least two of them.

I won't say anything here, not to have them unnecessarily spread in multiple threads, if you're interested you know where to find the spoiler thread. ^^

So, the latest Blessed Gardens challenge ...

Map 1: Easy
Map 2: Easy.

Map 3: I'm glad that you craphole game-mode will go away forever, burn in heck you stupid shit.

Seriously, there challenge, and there's just plain unfair shit like this. Little space to move around, reinforcements from all sides, the fucking BK with fucking WoM. Add in ultra-inflated stats, your units pretty much not able to one shot them, making BK's WoM trigger FOR CERTAIN, and you got the most unfair package since a long time.

I think i can live without the 2k feathers and the blessing. I certainly can live without Blessed Gardens if this shit was how future ones will play out.

Goodbye, i won't miss you. If i would have before, this changed my mind.

I just looked at new Delthea's stats and she totally powercreeps Tailtiu. At least the latter has more speed and a cool prf but still.

No. Tailtiu's prf makes her an absolute monster; play as her and quickly realize why wrath is melee only. And while Deathea might edge out on all stats but speed, speed is incredibly important for a mage. An unmerged Delthea reaches 37 speed with her prf? That's unreliable. An unmerged Tailtiu reaches 42 speed on initiation, which is usually enough to double.

Tailtiu is still an all around better mage than Deathea imo.

Unmerged Deathea should be initiating with 40-44 speed, depending on build, thats pretty reliable. Its kindve pointless to only think about unbuilt speed

Tailtiu is still better. She can run Desperation and guarantee a +10 damage special every combat still. She can also go all in on Death Blow 4 thanks to her weapon handling her speed.

Deathea probably running something along the lines of SwSp. Their overall performance becomes quite even, but Tailtiu edges things out thanks to +10 special trigger. However Deathea is better at enemy phase, which is often super beneficial for a mage trying to get into desperation range.

Deathea should either have Brazen Atk/Spd or Fury 3 (4) for simulating Celica's build. Fury with her weapon's recoil means Desperation after one attack. She's pretty good.

Ultimately heroes with access to boons and easy availability via 3* - 4* always win, though.

The last blessed garden grounds map was pretty easy for me. I have both Reinhards and Lyn with wind blessings. Grouped together with Gunnthra, Black Knight and his crew didn't stand a chance.

So once I get through my next 100k feathers of promotions for unlocking confessions, I'll be down to just merge projects.

Maybe I'm using the Arena calculator wrong, but I don't see much of a difference between making a unit +10 and using +1/+2 merged for the other two free slots, or spreading the merges more evenly. Any advice?

Well, the higher the merges, the higher the units score. Of course, skills and blessings are impacting the unit score too. But raising a unit's score doesn't automatically mean that your Arena score range raises. You need to hit certain thresholds for it to go up.

God damn it I got another pity breaker Caineghis with a decent asset. What is this colourless hell?

/s

Also Tibarn showed with a more dubious asset/flaw combo but I'll make him work cause his attack was untouched. This Fallen banner has been decent for 5* units even if it's not the ones I was looking for.

Colorless has now some of the best pity breakers, imo of course. Kinshinoka, Velouria, Caineghis, Leanne, Brave Veronica. Soon BadCorrin and Brattiki. Maribelle and Loki are bit less great, but both still carry useful skills.

I think the only "dud" in colorless right now is Nina.

Even Nina has some unique fodder and is usable as a Firesweep archer/Res tank, but she's probably "the worst". We're long gone from the halcyon days of Mist popping your pity rate.

I was bored yerterday and had stamina to burn so I did this:



I had something like 20 Titania manuals but fortunately one of my 3 remaining Titanias had OK asset/flaw.
I might user for AR so I gaver her a Light Blessing.
