  1. I got super lucky and pulled two Hilda: Deer's Two-Piece on my ninth and tenth summoning Orb, so I think spent around 40 to 50 Orbs or so. I think I will keep pulling colorless and maybe red for a few more copies and to collect Mercedes: Unfussed Basker. — — — — — — — Spent like 200 something Orbs total and all I got more of was just a dumb Hubert and Ashe: Fabled Sea Knight. No 4* specials or anything all the way to 5.5%. I think I will try one more time for one of the girls before calling it quits. — — — — — — — Finally, I got Mercedes: Unfussed Basker, and I got 4* Caspar: Summer Intensity in the same circle. I also got a Lene along the way. I think that is like 400 Orbs total or something. I think I should have just stopped when I got my two SV!Hildas.
  2. We have some of the highest rates of teen pregnancies in the developed world. We have some unhealthy assumptions/attitudes about sex. This is not limited to America, but sex crime is probably way underreported due to shame and embarrassment. If sex was not treated so hostilely as some evil taboo and is talked about and accepted more openly like diet, politics, climate change, etc., society would be better off.
  3. The Byzantine Empire as a term is dumb and stupid. It is the same old freaking Roman Empire, just without Rome and without the western half. If differentiation is necessary, Eastern Roman Empire is better than Byzantine in my opinion. Afro-Eurasia should be considered one continent. Similarly, the "Americas" is dumb as there is no water dividing Northern America and Southern America, and it is just one America. This is not controversial for most Americans, but it needs to be taught in school that the Confederacy is evil and irredeemable like the Nazis, and that flying the Confederate flag is tantamount to hating America. Every American patriot should celebrate the Fourth of July by wiping their butts with the Confederate flag. I guess that is it from me. What are your historical hot takes?
  4. I guess I am the opposite. I am okay with sexual expressions. I find America's obsession with prudishness to be annoying and naive at best or outright obnoxious and hurtful in most cases. People can yell obscenities at each other and enjoy gory violence in movies, but going outside butt naked to cool off is too much and is considered an obscenity that is not protected under the First Amendment. In a land where people go to church or religious gatherings regularly to cleanse their conscience and show off their spiritual purity, 99% of its people cannot even be bothered to clean their ass properly with soap and water after they poop.
  5. I would mirror flip the team if that makes sense. The far left in the front row is sort of a safe spot since Selena cannot attack it. Flipping it around, Byleth: Fell Star Duo can potentially fly over the water and attack that spot.
  6. Feels a bit safe for offense in my opinion. At least for players like me with an open back row, I would put Ike: Brave Mercenary and Lucina: Brave Princess where you put them, and then hide the three supports/Mythics in the back row. And as long as Ike: Brave Mercenary and Lucina: Brave Princess lives, I would keep playing despite losing a unit, so I would not mind risking my fourth support/Mythic and putting them where Peony is at. Líf: Undying Duo would still be a problem though, but depending on how he moves, I might sacrifice a unit to take him out if I have not lost a unit yet. But for offense players with full back rows, the defense map seems pretty solid since there is only one hiding spot available. Seems pretty difficult to set up Galeforce due to all the stuff in the way. Super tanking is not an option due to no space to hide your units. A save tank team might work, but it seems hard to pull off.
  7. For Galeforcers, while high Atk matters, Spd also matters since you need to double to trigger Galeforce reliably, and he is pretty slow. You can Spd stack him, but there are a lot of other lance cavalry who have better stat spread for that job. If you really want him to be a Galeforcer, then I also recommend investing in support units who can Pulse allies, so slow units like Fernand can use a Weapon that can boosts his Spd better than Slaying Lance. As mentioned above, enemy phase also works, although in my opinion, his Def is also a bit lacking compared to Silas, Conrad, and Orson. Personally, I would just turn him into a slow Brave nuke, and he can still somewhat "Galeforce" via Canto with Trace. His best stat is Atk, and that is where he is unrivalled.
  8. SV!Hilda is nice. Sunshade Staff and Even Recovery are pretty useful. Flayn still feels a bit better though in my opinion since she can do Sabotage and is a bit more relevant with Save tank teams. I think I will still try to get two copies of SV!Hilda, one for each season, but I do not think I will bother merging her. I want to get more for Even Recovery, but I am not sure. As much as I want to run Recoveries on Flayn to help mitigate Fatal Smoke a bit, her default Ground Orders gives my Save tanks some semblance of usability, and I can actually reach Aether Structures with them. SV!Ashe is okay. B Duel Cavalry is nice though. SV!Mercedes is pretty bland. AR Far Trace is not as good as SR Far Trace in my opinion. Reinhardt is not fast, but he can double super slow units with Lull Spd/Res and SR Far Trace. SV!Caspar is decent as a demote for fodder. Bonus Doubler is pretty nice for dual phase units if you can support them with Gaps and Openings. Honestly, Duo and Harmonic skills are kind of irrelevant in Aether Raids offense with Duo's Hinderance being a thing. Her main appeal is basically replicating Lucina: Brave Princess; Even Recovery is also nice, although any healer can use it so it is not unique to her.
  9. It does not need to be fancy. If you have Líf: Undying Duo, who the other three ranged cavalry are does not really matter. Even if you do not have Fatal Smoke on the team, as long as you have an open map with not enough spaces to hide, some players will still fall for it since they lack the backline space to hide all their support units. I advise against merging Nótt. Having two or three can help make the defense team even better.
  10. Foils are not that great, so wasting it is not a big deal; you also do not need to waste Grails on Rally Atk/Def since Midori has an extra skill she can give.
  11. I am not sure Far Save is the right way to go either. If Líf: Undying Duo shuts down her healing, she is not going to survive nukes that she can normally tank, and he is pretty common and there are generally more ranged nukes than melee nukes. At least with Sigurd: Fated Holy Knight, there generally are much less melee nukes backing him up.
  12. I believe being on top counts as being adjacent. I remember testing it before with Bond Sacred Seals on Henriette: Overflowing Love and the Bond skills triggered despite being not adjacent to allies before the Save skill triggered. Dragon Wall with Flayn support significantly blunts triangle advantage though, so the lower Def is not a huge issue in my opinion, especially if Sigurd: Fated Holy Knight is the only significant melee threat.
  13. I guess you can pick Far Save instead, but I would still keep the rest of the skills the same. You can just replace Pale Breath with Lightning Breath later.
  14. I would stick with Near Save instead since she does not have enough skill slots for us stuff all the major tanking effects. Lightning Breath and Distant Counter take up space that could have gone to other more tanky skills like Pale Breath and Stances. If I were picking Fae: Holiday Dear, I would go with: Pale Breath [Res] (Any Assist) Blue Flame Bracing Stance Dragon Wall DR Near Save I think running a Dodge skill is a pretty important, since it can reduce a lot of damage. Guard is on A slot since you cannot put that anywhere else.
  15. For slow tanks, I think Guard is crucial since Special triggers can take out a huge chunk of HP, so make sure to have it somewhere on the tank or offload it to Tannenbaton. Outside of raw stat boosts, there are not really any good tanking skills in the Sacred Seal slot; the best ones in my opinion right now are Quick Riposte and Mystic Boost. Quick Riposte allows the tank to run a strong tanking B skill, while Mystic Boost can help reduce the need for Aether. For Dedue, if you do not want to overhaul his skill set, then Vengeful Fighter would probably be best, and I would put Mystic Boost on his Sacred Seal slot. If you are willing to overhaul his skill set, I think Close Def-Crafty Fighter is a slight better load out due to a bit more stats. Close Def-Special Fighter-Quick Riposte is also an option for Guard and triggering Aether. For Henriette: Overflowing Love, I think all she needs is Crafty Fighter. For her Sacred Seal slot, I would go with Distant Def for now and then switch to Def/Res Form later, since they give the most stats. Special Fighter-Quick Riposte is also an option if you need less defensive stats and more reliable Special triggers. The most dangerous threats that I can think of right now would be Fatal Smoke and Blazing nukes. Líf: Undying Duo cutting Dodge and Alm: Saint King dealing true damage are not that big of threat in my opinion since Flayn can still significantly blunt their attacks. Flayn cannot provide protection against Blazing nukes and Fatal Smoke though, hence why I think those are a bit more threatening.
