Fallen Takumi might pair up well with Nils. He could position himself and knock off 10 HP on Turn 3 and then Nils could neutralize another mage on Turn 4.

Stuff like H!Hector and the Bolt Tower could also get all of certain teams' HP down to 1.

I dunno I see a fair number of infantry teams that have several ranged units with specials charged up. Taking one of them out matters but it's not a huge deal I'd think.

It's making things easier, for example in a 2 special ready nuke mage setup.

You take the mage out that still has the special ready and then make sure you tank / counterkill the mage that was hit by the skill. Tanking a Lilina / Sonya / Ophelia isn't hard without their specials.

Two? More like four. Just the other day I faced a team consisting of two magical nukes, Jamke, Seliph and two dancers, with Micaiah serving as the fourth nuke.

I wonder if you could set up some shenanigans with a L1 infantry dancer in the 3-4 pool (like a Silvia or Olivia) to let them soak the Nils B-slot with some IP support...

Anyway, I'm kind of tempted to grind skills on Eldigan to get Dark Mystletainn and Vantage in Hall of Fjorms because he's already got Distant Ward and Ruptured Sky (so the gen 1 Atk stat won't be as damaging).

I know want a Hall of Fjorms in the game! ^^

Never seen more than three honestly ... was that and invading team or a def team? Anyway for people using such lamer teams, there's a special place beneath Garreg Mach.

Six units so def team. Seliph's prf effect always catches me off guard. Still won without a casualty, because apparently Miracle doesn't prevent Brave weapons hitting for four times.

Ah yeah, didn't grasp that. Well, once you get a dent into such a team it's pretty easy to clear.

Difficulty is to get the dent into the team initially without aggroing it beforehand. Most of such team leave little to no room for your units, they're not even expecting a full def win, but enough kills for their reduced Lift loss to make it a "free" loss at worst. ^^

My anniversary BHB banner haul:

5* Clair
3* Sophia
4* Catria
3* Raven
4* Mordecai
3* Florina
4* Niles
3* Peri
4* Virion
3* Lucius
4* Hawkeye
3* Roy
4* Python

... not great this year. But at least the frequent banners were keeping my itchy summoning finger busy. Saving up orbs has been working!

How is Hall of Forms going for everyone so far?

It's being extremely stingy on giving me movement skills so have only had 1 Draw Back to maneuver people. So far, Quan is getting the most RNG blessed in my run (Gae Bolg, Ruptured Sky, Distant Counter). Whereas Eldigan can't be offered a decent A or B skill to save his life.

Hall of Forms has been mixed for me, but this one does mark the first time I've ever seen Reposition there -- and I got it twice today, so both my sword cavs have it. Eldigan has DC, and the other three units have their prf weapons, which is cool.

Why is the valentines banner so stingy with green orbs? Seriously, out of 8 summoning sessions, I only saw one green orb, and that was another 3 star Fae.

Recently I started playing this game again after a really long hiatus. Honestly, after all the shitty modes IS has made, I can't believe that they created an actual fun mode. Hall of Forms is sick.

If thats the case, he will be a 170 bst dancer

Finally got a 5* from all these free pulls!! I was just hoping for a 4* Echidna and got a brave Ike!!!



So, it seems the brave boy has a liking for me and I have enough copies to build a +5 one, on top of that I've heard that his refine makes him pretty tanky, so what would be the ideal and budget way to build him? and which boon would be better between Res/Def/HP? I think the HP inflation has made harder for him to use his panic ploy nowadays, even with a boon, right?

If you have a neutral one, I think that one is best after +atk, since there are many ways to build him and +def/+res will actually give him less than 3 mitigation points because of Urvan. The most common ones are the pure physical tank build and mixed tank build. Mixed wants Distant Counter. If you don't have that to fodder off, you can use the Steady Breath he comes with. Aether will work great with that, since your opponent will hit twice first (if outsped) so that you can Aether on the counterattack. Beorc's Blessing is fine but unexciting. For budget you can use Quick Riposte 2/3. If you want to use Panic Ploy or Infantry Pulse, +HP isn't that bad, but generally his base HP is enough to panic the more dangerous threats (he gets +3 HP from Urvan refine). Atk Smoke is a great general budget option to help him tank better (Kaze has it at *4). For seals, you can use anything that improves his damage output or tanking abilities. Quick Riposte, Fierce Stance, Mirror Stance etc.

Day 14: 4* Clair
Day 15: 3* Silas

Well, I couldn't put it off any longer. I used a couple quest orbs to expand my barracks. Think I'll do this with a couple more quests since I've hit a nice round number of orbs for the upcoming banners.

Free summon on the Micaiah banner gave me a Selkie (-def +res). Zero idea what to do with her, since sabotage attack really isn't useful post-Temari. I might give it to Mathilda, but that requires a lot of stars to align, namely more Tanya merges (around +5 I'll probably sue her seriously as an astra tank) and Altina winning the VG (Altina can soak defensive chills, meaning Mathilda can drop def/res link from her B slot). But hmm 🤔.

I like to run Distant Counter with Null C-Disrupt (QR seal) but it depends on whether you have Nailah. Beorc's Blessing is actually pretty solid, can be annoying if you put him on your Arena defense team. Guard is a solid option too. Someone here was workshopping the idea of +Spd B!Ike with Repel. But you would have to dump all your support into Speed to make it work against the faster mages and L!Alm.

I have 6 B!Ikes in my barracks too and am wrestling with whether to spend my 500 orbs and try to finish him. I like using him a lot but it's not like he will boost arena scoring significantly.

I have +3 L!Eirika and +3 Sothis, so maybe the better scoring play is to start merging up legendary/mythic units. Eirika and Sothis are the known red units this month. Decisions, decisions...

Yep. Easily the best mode they've made since launch.

So of course it only appears once every two months.
Personally I find it massively annoying as after chamber 10 there is no way to get more forma torches (unless I am missing something). If your team sucks at that point, you get a few chances a day to battle at lower level to try and get some decent skills then you just have to wait a whole day to play again.

So he's pretty strong as is with the refine but can be a distant counter candidate if one has the spare resources. I actually have a neutral one but forgot to mention it, guess I'll use that one as the base and give him atk smoke. Thanks for the answers.

And apparently the Pegasus Flight is sword, lance and axe only. And Even Pulse Tie is infantry and cavalry only.

Heith gets ridersbane, ATK/DEF push at 4*, escape route at 5* and dragon fang.

Edit: Day 16: 3* Est

And another change. Seems after the banner event ends, the demotee will be demoted straight to the 3/4* pool.


I guess no more mass demotions after this year’s if it happens?

Woah coo, Leila +Spd on my free pull ... that's ... surprising. The other banners gave me only 3* again.

Maybe this opens up for them to make a "real" mass demotion, as in every 5* from gen 1 outside of Hector and Takumi, demoted to 3*/4* in the pools for all banner incl. new heroes and new special heroes.

I want my +10 Nephenee.
