I'm looking forward to Xenologue 5 (and the orbs it comes with), the start of Book 4, the new free 5*, and Eir hanging out in Forging Bonds weirding people out like Fjorm currently does.
This is kind of where I'm at. Without AR I would've quit a long time ago, and even there the meta is becoming stale. When 3/5 of your team has to be a mythic hero and a bonus unit if you want to score in the top ranks, you don't get a lot of flexibility.
This is a huge and totally unexpected shock for me since I’ve really wanted Delthea ever since she was first released way back in July 2017.
I’ve been playing since launch day yet I’ve still never summoned an OG Hinoka or OG Lyn. They’re the only launch units I don’t have. I hope someday they get demoted so I can finally fulfill that dream of owning the entire roster circa February 2017 without having to pay $1,000+ (minus Hector) like that one guy did.
Same thing minus Azura. There are loads of year one units I’ve yet to have but the most damning of all is having not gotten a single version of Elise.
Agreed, my tipping point was that I’ve been pulling on banners with my daily orbs and such and I’d be pulling once (and maybe still) coveted units like H!Myrrh or new Mythic units and not even bothering to build them because my +10 Surtr/Reinhardt/B!Lyn we’re still getting me by in AR20.This is kind of where I'm at.

New heroes, even the 3*-4* ones, are a drop in a massive pool. Login bonuses haven't changed since launch. Grails make you choose between good fodder or a good unit. Some currencies are absolutely useless. And we still have no unit search option.
I was going through my barracks the other day and I have so many random 5* that are just sitting there (horse Chrom, Hot Springs Ryoma, etc). They do make good fodder but I've never really felt the need to use them when my favourites are doing fine. Of course it doesn't help that the best fodder (level 4 skills, Null CD) are very rare.
Book 4 better shake up the game.
The people that are actually getting all the hero merit feathers are using a bot. You'd have to be crazy to do it by hand.
At least it's coming a day after Brave Redux / Farfetched 2019, IS could've felt evil and drop that banner 1 day before it. ^^
I actually like doing all the calculations and analyzing effects. It makes the game more strategic and tactical, even if it is gacha bait and FE-lite at times.Agreed, my tipping point was that I’ve been pulling on banners with my daily orbs and such and I’d be pulling once (and maybe still) coveted units like H!Myrrh or new Mythic units and not even bothering to build them because my +10 Surtr/Reinhardt/B!Lyn we’re still getting me by in AR20.
At that point what am I playing for if I’m not investing in the new units I pull.
Truth be told I’ve been put off by the stray from Rock/Paper/Scissors for a while now. Units have so many damn qualifiers on them it’s no longer fun to try and figure out battles. If unit has +5 HP than the unit that is attacking but isn’t adjacent to a beast unit and is an odd turn but isn’t debuffed by a dark shrine but gets atk*2*number of structures destroyed during an anima season yada yada yada. It’s too much.
Or an Adrift.
For what it's worth, last year, Brave Redux came first, Adrift afterwards ... so here's hoping it stays like this. ^^I've been slacking hard on my feather use, mainly because the units I'm thinking of promoting will also take grails and there are only so many of those to go around.
Or an Adrift.
Though with that reaction they got last time, repeating that would take some real chutzpah from IS.
(I'm still kinda salty I got every hero on that banner except the one I wanted)
Me too. I'm actually curious if they're going to continue with the current trend and put a hero directly into the 3-4* pool on the Fardux Refetched banner.
I hope so. So far it's been done on banner that also had a demote but Far-fetched and Brave heroes banners don't have demotes.
Nice and congrats!
I wish you good luck on your endeavor! I'm always a bit hesitant to snipe on leg banners because of the other two color sharing units trolling me in the past.
You should definitely use Valter! ^^I'm trying to think of a fun (and challenging) theme battle for Cormag. I don't wanna use the SS heroes I always use.
Anyone have suggestions for a fun theme team to try against Cormag? Valter seems like a good pick considering the game's story but I can't think of other 3 teammates related to Cormag.
