  3. I am a bit biased for Player Phase ranged units, so I highly recommend Klein, Tailtiu, Sonya, Tharja, and Nino. Klein is a top tier quad Brave archer. I personally lean towards Spd Refinement, but special Refinement is good too. You can setup Tailtiu as a regular Desperation nuke using special Refinement, but you can also have her emulate Ophelia with Atk Refinemet. She is a bit more difficult to set up than Ophelia since she needs external help to get Blazing charged on turn 1 and she needs to be in Wrath range to simulate Missiletainn's Slaying effect. Similarly, you can set up Sonya for either spamming Moonbow or Blazings. I personally lean towards Moonbow spam since she can charge that herself. Sonya's Blazing spam is not as effective since she cannot run Hardy Bearing on the Sacred Seal slot as she needs Heavy Blade to work, and she also needs external help to charge Blazing Specials on the first turn. Tharja and Nino are both good. Tharja should use either special Refinement as a regular nuke or Atk Refinement if she is running Counter-Vantage. For Nino, I lean towards Spd Refinement instead if you use her as a regular nuke or Atk Refinement if you use her as a Counter-Vantage unit. I do not think Nino's special Refinement is necessary because it is super redundant since most Dancers/Singers already provide buffs, especially if you run VS!Azura. Peri is not ranged, but she can run Galeforce for Aether Raids. Similarly, Eliwood can serve as a decent Galeforce unit. He cannot Galeforce every turn with his exclusive Weapon, but his Weapon allows him to activate his first Galeforce pretty reliably if he takes a counter attack, and most of the time, you just need Galeforce to activate once anyways. — — — — — — — I also recommend super bulky tanks: Seliph, Leo, and Faye. Seliph has practically infinite bulk against most nukes, Leo can prevent follow-up attacks (watch out for nukes with Null Follow-Up though), and Faye can cram all three important Enemy Phase B skills into her skill set (Quick Riposte on Weapon, Dull Ranged via Distant Def, and Guard on B). — — — — — — — For Aether Raids defense, I recommend Eldigan, Delthea, and Est. Eldigan can surprise unsuspecting players with his default Lunge, double Fury helps his bulk and act as a Wings of Mercy beacon, and Mystletainn's Slaying effect can further pair with Escutcheon or Pavise to make sure he survives and activate Lunge. I think Sturdy Impact would also be very useful to ensure Lunge activation, but fuck its stupid skill inheritance restriction since it does not allow cavalry units to inherit it. Delthea can buff her Galeforce and/or Lunge allies and then swoop in with Wings of Mercy for the kill as her special Refinement boosts her power when near melee allies. Est leading a flier ball defense team can basically shit on anyone not experienced or prepared to deal with flier balls. — — — — — — — The following are just some extra comments I have. Conditional Distant Counter feels kind of iffy. If you make it reliable to activate with Miracle, it kills his damage output. You can run Luna-Special Spiral-Quick Riposte, but it feels like a regular Distant Counter sword unit can do it better with Quick Riposte-(whatever Sacred Seal). She felt really underwhelming when I face her in Arena Assault one time, although that might be due to her running an SP build rather than performance build. I think I was using my FIH!Xander +0 to tank her, but I did not expect her to die in one round of combat. She is fun, but I do not recommend building her if you are looking for gameplay performance since there are so many better options. I agree that Sealed Falchion is superior. Her regular Falchion is more suited for Enemy Phase units. Should be fine. His Res even seems salvageable with double Fury and Warding Stance if you want something different, but just do not expect him to tank stuff like Celica or DW!F!Corrin though. With a reliable A skill on her Weapon, you can try double Brazen Atk/Spd for stupid quading potential. I do not think it is that great. You might as well just run Firesweep Bow for better consistency against all types of Enemy Phase units, besides the Null C-Disrupt ones. While I would not say he is meta, he may have the potential to be okay. I think he is kind of difficult to use, but you can check out Zeo's Matthew clears since I think Saizo might be able to do something like that. I do not think the Weapon is that great in my opinion since it is too conditional, but it is decent if you really like her. If you want gameplay performance though, I recommend sticking with Brave Bow archers if you are looking for a colorless physical nuke.
  4. The best way to increase his damage output is to run Quick Riposte. I discourage running sustainability skills like Renewal, Sol, Aether, etc. on most combat units since it is far more efficient to offload sustainability to another unit, such as Eir and staff users. I think +Res is okay for Boey if you use him to tank magic attacks, but I personally lean towards +Def and avoid having him tank mages and dragons. If you still find his damage output lacking with Quick Riposte, then I would switch his nature to +Atk. I do not recommend running Wave skills unless you also plan to run the Wave skill of the other parity on the Sacred Seal slot. Boey +Atk/Def/Res Gronnowl [Def] (Any Assist) — Swap Bonfire Close Counter Quick Riposte (Any C) — Atk Smoke — Odd Def Wave (with Even Def Wave) Atk/Def Bond — Even Def Wave I generally do not recommend dual phase builds for non armor mages because they do not have as much stats and skills to work with. There are only two somewhat workable dual phase builds, but they each have drawbacks. The first somewhat dual phase build is simply a regular Player Phase build with Fury on the A skill. The mage will have the option of choosing doing either Player Phase or Enemy Phase for its first round of combat before being completely Player Phase for the rest of the battle when it reaches Desperation range. The primary drawback is that it can only do Enemy Phase once unless you heal the nuke back up with a healer. The second type involves running Atk/Spd Push and Renewal. I recommend skipping Renewal if you are running some type of healer, but Renewal is mandatory if you do not have healer since you need it to reactivate Atk/Spd Push. While Atk/Spd Push works on both phases, Atk/Spd Push only works when the unit is at 100% HP, and since Renewal only works every other round, this build cannot handle swarms of foes well. I think Gronnserpent is fine if you do not want to use Gronnblade, but make sure to give it Spd Refinement so it is not completely shit on Player Phase. I do not recommend Swift Sparrow for dual phase builds since it only works on Player Phase. I do NOT recommend Bond skills for dual phase units. While Bonds theoretically work on both phases, in practice, it is horrible on Player Phase since you often need to break formation to engage a foe. I would give Lugh something like this: Gronnserpent [Spd] Reposition Moonbow Fury — Atk/Spd Push (with Renewal) Desperation — Renewal (optional if there is a healer teammate; mandatory without a healer) (Any C) Atk/Spd If you want to use a Player Phase build. I recommend switching out Gronnserpent since it is just not meant for Player Phase combat. Gronnblade Reposition Moonbow (Any A that boost Atk/Spd) Desperation (Any C) Brazen Atk/Spd — Atk/Spd — Darting Blow — Heavy Blade — Flashing Blade

  6. Hong Kong for the past week is protesting Chinese interference and encroachment. During the British hand over of Hong Kong to China in 1997, Hong Kong was guaranteed to keep its system of democratic government for the next 50 years, so they coin the term "One Country Two [political] Systems" to describe the difference in governance between high autonomy areas and low autonomy areas. Basically, unlike Chinese citizens, Hong Kongers in general have about the same rights as those in Western democracies, but one of the most important differences is that they cannot choose their leaders (Beijing chooses for them), which means there is practically no effective mechanism to prevent an erosion of democracy inside the government. To further undermine Hong Kong's autonomy and end One Country Two Systems, the pro-Beijing leader recently is trying to get an extradition law passed that can be abused by Beijing to extradite political dissidents from Hong Kong to China to be tried under opaque Chinese courts, and this extradition bill is what lead to recent protests. The Hong Kong government is essentially representing a foreign power rather than representing the local populace.
  7. Although I have not played Tellius games, I am going to guess that they will adopt a stray Laguz as a pet. Do Ike x Mist ships exist? But they are not blood related, so I think it is okay if Ike and Titania get it on.
  8. Oh okay, I totally misunderstood the second quote. I guess for an additional side challenge, I recommend using obese myrmidons, basically sword armors, for one of the rounds during your second run, but they cannot use any armor-only skills. Alternatively, you can just use regular sword infantry, but they are limited to moving only 1 space per turn to simulate being obese from sitting on the bench for so long in Askr.
  9. I challenge you to destroy Arena Assault with sword infantry only then!
  10. Jack pot! 31,219 is a prime number!
