  1. Yeah, definitely not that viable of a skill. W!Sothis uses it pretty well but she's a big ball of stats with all the right skills to make her tricky to fight her on either phase. Bah, just my luck that my rare 'good' free pulls have absurdly niche SI.
  2. Free pulled a Brave Alm on the banner today. Who would be able to use Threaten Attack/Spd well? A close call user, certainly, but I don't have any of those.
  3. He actually gets to 47 spd on initiation which is pretty useful. Bonus Doubler is pretty rad. I used that team to clear Abyssal Lif but you're right in that I usually have to use other teams (Brave Bow and Reinhardt + 2 dancers) for Abyssal stuff. Atk Smoke would be the more budget option, that much is certain. One plus side of Res Smoke, however, is that it benefits 3 res targeting units on my team while Attack Smoke is only good for the two tanks (Myrrh and Lyon).
  4. I'm thinking about a C slot skill for my +10 Lyon. The build is Naglfar, Draw Back, Iceberg, CC, QR, blank and Darting Blow (seal). This is for PVE content mostly. His team is Myrrh, Summer Laegjarn and L!Eliwood (full tactics support for Lyon). My current thoughts are Atk Smoke or Res Smoke. Atk Smoke improves his bulk and Res Smoke improves his damage for himself as well as Myrrh and Laegjarn. Thoughts?
  5. TH's overall quality is hard to pin down because while it's head and shoulders above Fates in the character and (the complete) story department, it's full of tedious gameplay and story pacing decisions that make it much more of a drag to play. With that said, Fates (barring Revelation which is a hot mess in both gameplay and story) could be called a better "game" but TH is hands down a better story. While I agree with every Fates criticism you wrote, I'd accuse Three Houses as having deliberate acts of bad faith in the way they gut important characterization and story developments in each route to make the other routes more enticing to play. Of the routes I finished (CF and AM), they don't care at all about developing the main characters you aren't backing. They absolutely could have developed them but they chose not to. It's so bad in Azure Moon that one of the bosses who holds a ton of answers about a dropped plotline says "You don't deserve to know about this plotline" when he dies.
  6. In regards to the Free Merge giveaway idea for the FEH pass, one thing they could do is give it out but only for non 5* exclusives. Obviously that wouldn't be as enticing, but it probably wouldn't hurt IS' bottom line while helping out players who just aren't pulling their favorite low rarity unit. They could also tie 5* merge items to consistent subscription renewals. I don't know what would be a fair trade in subscription fees for a merge, but it would encourage players to be subscribed for long periods of time,which is better than people who would otherwise just pop in to grab resplendent heroes they like and canceling again.
  7. Altina vs W!Sothis and Alfonse vs Sothis would definitely be the chef's kiss of semi finals. Somehow I fully expect Azura and Edelgard to make it there tho, with multiplier shenanigans or otherwise. It's going to be a nail biting VG.
  8. Huh, interesting results. I'd be happy getting Altina, Alfonse or either Sothis. I'm pretty indifferent to Alm and Leif, because while their kits are solid, I already have an AR defense and offense teams I'm happy with. I don't have a strong need for Edelgard but I'd still take her over Lazura, who is useless to me as I already have her. I wonder how the VG will be structured. Would it just be pairing down the ranking (ie 1st vs 2nd, 3rd vs 4th, 5th vs 6th, 7th vs 8th)? I want to join team Altina but it would be brutal if she had to eliminate (or be eliminated by) Alfonse in the first match. The most cursed semi-finals for me would be Alfonse vs Leif and Lazura vs Edelgard.
  9. I think the concerns about how "P2W" FEH pass is, are alarmist. The Resplendent Heroes available so far are two gen 1 units, one of which is hilariously powercrept. Could we eventually see Resplendent Heroes for characters who are already kings in the meta? Well, it's certainly a possibility but if the devs have half a brain between them they'll pace the distribution so we don't see that happen. Why don't we start complaining after Resplendent L!Alm comes out and not before? I'm in the camp that believes that "P2W" should be defined as an overwhelming advantage that prevents F2P users from succeeding in the game. If FEH pass subscribers had a flat increase to their scoring for competitive modes, I'd see that as P2W, but increasing unit stats to make it easier win battles isn't the tipping point to where I can't win as F2P.
  10. Huh, just saw this on Reddit. Presumably it applies to the 3rd rotation of quests as well.
  11. It's usually healer units with the occasional Firesweep Lyn. Do you suppose Lyon would be a good fit? He's red, so he won't fair well if Ophelia gets danced to him but he has CC, a prf Raven tome and my summoner support. Maybe a Gronraven user? I suppose I could build Nino for that. I don't want to spend all my Grails on Kronya and don't have CC for her anyway. I do have Phina, but like you said, she might not cut it vs non cavalry units. ---- New question For FEH pass owners, would one be able to subscribe and get 3 Resplendent Heroes + 3 quest rotations if they canceled their subscription before the month was up?
  12. That's how I feel about it. As a F2P player, I've already decided that the price of orbs is not what I'd be willing to pay, so while they're a nice bonus to the skins, they're not why I'd subscribe to the pass. The orbs are not worth the price even if that's what IS wants to sell them for. I think it's much better to value the pass on the free units and skins. Lyn is a 5* unit which makes her worth probably 100+ F2P orbs (only relevant if you want Lyn, but it's up to you to decide if you want that month's heroes). Sounds like a good deal to me if you like the characters offered. I play another gaccha (mostly for collecting characters with log in resources, heh) called Granblue Fantasy and they regularly sell packs for $30 for a full circle pull and a single skin. I think people underestimate how much people will pay for skins, forget the summoning currency.
  13. I recently summoned a Nailah for Null C but I'm not sure what heroes would be good for it. I have B!Ike and Lancina, so the former seems a popular choice for it, but I'd feel a little dirty using it because I so despise seeing it when it's used against me. So who else is a good user? I have a +10 Lyon(with Close Counter)/Fae/Nowi/Tiki available, although I have enough feathers to +10 any low rarity unit I have enough copies of. Any thoughts?
  14. This seems like a solid compromise. I'd add on an extra free summon for each banner for subscribers. It's a shame they don't make Resplendent boosts available to all. If they did, I think people would be pretty on board with the pass existing, even if they didn't want to pay for it.
  15. I wonder when they'll announce the top 8 winners. 1 more day of voting left.
