  1. Just remove them from your friends list. That is what I do.
  2. Not that I know of, but I would like to try to check them all eventually. Since Null C-Disrupt does not mask Flash, I assume other skills do not mask either. Flash — Null C-Disrupt (Partial) Trilema — Cancel Affinity Guard — Creator Sword Not sure if I am missing any other negative status effects. Okay, I think I will go with that terminology since it is simple and easy to understand. I cannot think of an easier explanation, but if I do, I will simply further as necessary. Neat, that is good to know. I assume Gjöll will work like Chaos Manifest in terms of negative status effects, so I can test Gjöll against Cancel Affinity-Trilema and Creator Sword-Guard. Not sure about the difference between Gjöll and Chaos Manifest in regards to stat debuffs though since that is really strange. I like all the input fields as it lets us simulate a variety of situations. Not a fan of having to manually enable certain effects though since the player might not know when an effect will be active or not. Cool. I will overhaul it according to that.
  3. Next time when CE!Chrom and GA!Lucina show up, I think I will try summoning them since they can act as pseudo Dancers/Singers. That should help ease the no Dancer/Singer requirement.
  4. Melee units should not be tanking ranged units if they do not have Distant Counter. Generally speaking, walling nukes instead of tanking and killing them is a bad idea. Chrom is too fast to use Bonfire reliably. 39 Spd is too unreliable with Steady Posture 2, and 41 Spd is even worse with Steady Posture 3. I would go with Moonbow so he can activate a Special during every round of combat. Frequency of Special triggers is much more important than the damage when a Special triggers. Mystic Boost does nothing for Chrom during combat. You want Lull Atk/Spd to disable buffs and give Chrom an indirect boost to Spd/Def/Res. It is far better and more efficient to bring a healer or a Healing Tower (O). Combat units should stick with combat skills in their skill set and offload everything else to support units as much as possible. — — — — — — — For a melee Spd tank, you want something like the following: +Spd Barrier Blade [Spd] Reposition — Swap Moonbow — Ruptured Sky Swift Stance (tier 3 not yet released) Lull Atk/Spd Atk Smoke Quick Riposte — Swift Stance At +10+10 with Swift Stance 3 and Quick Riposte, Chrom will have 47 Spd and 36 Res without factoring any buffs or Blessings. 47 Spd is pretty bad for a Spd tank, but buffs should easily get it to 50+, which should be adequate as long as Chrom is not tanking something crazy like tank-busting F!Byleth with Flashing Blade or Infantry Pulse'd Mareeta with a Blazing Special. For a proper super tank, Distant Counter is mandatory in my opinion: +Spd Guard Sword [Spd] Reposition — Swap Moonbow — Ruptured Sky Distant Counter Lull Atk/Spd Pulse Smoke — Panic Smoke — Atk Smoke Swift Stance Since a super tank can rely on offloading stats to support units, super tanks should prioritize putting as much tanking effects onto their build as possible. Guard Sword helps prevent Specials, and Lull Atk/Spd disables the two most important stat buffs on nuke.
  5. Yeah. I think green is probably the best color if you just want a 5* exclusive unit, since there are no 3*/4* unit in that pool. Green is 100% (3/3) 5* exclusive units. Blue is okay, with 71% (5/7) being 5* exclusive units. Red is not really great, with 63% (12/19) being 5* exclusive units. Colorless is horrible, with 0% (0/2) being 5* exclusive units.
  6. Just watched Maquia. It made my eyes moist. I think I am going to rate it 10/10. The only other anime titles I have rated this high before was Five Centimeters per Second and Hoshi no Koe.
  7. I recommend giving it to a unit with an exclusive Slaying Weapon as they can make a better use of it as a Blazing nuke, preferably a ranged unit like Ophelia or Lysithea. If you plan on giving it to Lucina anyways, then I recommend giving her Slaying Edge and Blazing Wind to pair with Special Spiral. If you have Blazing Light, that would also be good to inherit as well so you have more area patterns to choose from.
  8. All Choose Your Legends Foci are New Heroes Foci. It is doable, but I do not want to waste time on it. Not everyone likes to try to make less effective strategies and tactics work. The only challenge I am interested in is to find the most cost effective and/or efficient strategy for a particular mode/map. I have little to no interest in using theme teams and underpowered waifus/husbandos; it is fun to watch other people use them, but they are highly unsatisfying for me to actually play.
  9. Just because different build paths want different stat distributions does not mean all build paths want different stat distributions. Lots of build paths want the same type of stat distribution. Desperation nukes and Firesweepers want the same stat distribution. Counter-Vantage units, slow Brave nukes, Blazing nukes, etc. also want the same stat distribution. There are three paths an archer can take: fast Brave, slow Brave, or Firesweep. Rath can do fast Brave or Firesweep; he can do slow Brave, but that is a waste of his Spd stat. Since Rath is slightly offensively better, he should be running Brave Bow since that route is more stat dependent than Firesweep Bow. Python can take Firesweep. A fast Brave build is highly dependent on having high Atk/Spd and the Special Luna, so Fury and Ruptured Sky are kind of a waste on Rath. While you can make Fury work on a fast Brave build, I recommend Life and Death 3 or something equivalent or better. Rath +Atk Brave Bow Reposition Luna (Any A that boosts Atk/Spd) Desperation (Any C) — Def Smoke — Savage Blow Brazen Atk/Spd Python +Atk/Spd Firesweep Bow Reposition Moonbow — Luna (Any A that boosts Atk/Spd) Poison Strike — Lull Spd/Def (Any C) — Def Smoke — Savage Blow Poison Strike — Savage Blow I personally lean towards +Atk, but either nature is fine.
  10. Probably to balance out how undesirable some units are since they are already in the 3*/4* pool to make it overall more appealing. Slightly over half the guys are in the 3*/4* pool, while about a third of the girls are in the 3*/4* pool. Not all 5* units are great either.
  11. And I do not find non-Dancer/Singer teams appealing. It is fun to see other people do it once in a while, but it is not something I want to go through the trouble of doing. It is a waste of time trying to force less effective tactics to work, and potentially wasting additional resources which not every player can afford or want to spend.
  12. It is the most effective strategy to deal with PvE content. There is no need to reinvent the wheel with less effective strategy and tactics wasting resources and time. I would argue Enemy Phase super tanking is even more brain dead since you just sit there and have a healer in the back to heal. At least with Player Phase, there is a slight challenge of not letting your nuke get hit.
  13. Fine print on the bottom says only on New Heroes summoning events.
  14. Probably best to leave Grail units somewhere between +7 and +9, unless you really need those last merges. It is best to keep them regardless. I am not sure if Limited Hero Battles will become a mainstay, but if they do, it is best to keep one of each free neutral unit and keep it unmerged.
