  1. It depends on how you want to utilize SA!Tana, although I personally cannot really think of a reason why she would want any Impact over other A skills that boosts Atk/Spd if you are using her yourself. In the AI's hands it is mostly for making baiting her more difficult. In players' hands, I do not think she really needs the Def+10 since she wants to get into Desperation range as soon as possible, and you also do not need to rely on eating counter attacks to get into Desperation range either. In Aether Raids, most Bolt Traps are horribly placed (even in Tier 21) and can be easily taken advantaged of by Player Phase teams. The vast majority of them are also leveled past 1 so you can pretty much count on getting into Desperation range once you step on it. If you want a consistent source of out of combat damage for your nukes without engaging them in combat, you can utilize DW!Berkut as a teammate and he can get your whole team into Desperation range after he fights. Follow-up prevention also is not very useful in players' hands since Player Phase nuke should kill their enemies on the second hit, rendering the effect pointless; if the nuke cannot kill a target on the second hit, then the nuke has no business engaging that fight in the first place. Counter-Vantage is best used with units that can easily reach around 85+ Atk (assuming this is for Aether Raids), although I personally would not give it to a unit unless they can reach 90+ Atk. There is absolutely no point in running Vantage if the unit cannot kill an enemy in one hit. The best ranged units to run Counter Vantage would be non-armor high Atk Blade mages. They are super easy to set up and use. After that, you can try Jaffar and Pain healers, but they are more complicated to use in my opinion. They simulate high Atk with out of combat damage. Jaffar is a bit easier to use because he has access to Reposition while staff users do not. You can try Kagero and Jeorge, but I am hesitant in recommending them. They have higher than average Atk, but it is not high enough that I would consider it reliable. I personally do not recommed Counter-Vantage for them unless they are your favorite characters or something. I think that is every ranged unit off the top of my head. Anyone else not mentioned just does not make the cut.
  2. 31,263 = 3 × 17 × 613 It is getting pretty warm in Sacramento.
  3. Woops, my bad. I thought your comment was in reply to mine.
  4. SR!Laevatein's boobs look pretty normal. If you are talking about her sister and SR!Gunnthrá, their boobs are massive and would normally sag, but the shape is achievable with implants so it is not totally unrealistic. Lore wise, they are probably just naturally big and had NYOFAI!Laevatein cast reverse Gravity back during New Years.
  5. Her neutral base Spd is 37. Atk/Spd Solo provides 6 Spd, so it takes that up to 43. Her Weapon provides variable Spd, but under normal circumstances, it should provide at least 4 Spd, so for a total of 47 Spd. For comparison, the last Mythic Hero Battle map, Naga: Dragon Divinity, the fastest Abyssal enemy is the archer who can reach 54 Spd on Player Phase with Odd Spd Wave and double Darting Blow, but on Enemy Phase, his Spd is much more manageable at 42. There is also a super fast red manakete with Life and Death that got 48 Spd, but if you run Atk/Spd on the Sacred Seal slot and provide Hone Spd buff, you should have no trouble doubling it. For modes below Abyssal, enemies are pretty damn slow. For Infernal, that same archer lost 2 Spd and Darting Blow Sacred Seal resulting in 40 Spd on Enemy Phase and 46 Spd on Player Phase, while the red manakete lost 4 Spd resulting in 44 Spd. For Lunatic, the archer lost more Spd and Spd Refinement, resulting in 35 Spd on Enemy Phase and 41 Spd on Player Phase, while the red manakete now sits at 41 Spd. Just switch her Special to Moonbow and B slot to Desperation. I also recommend Reposition for Assist.
  6. Even for Abyssal content, +Atk is generally more than sufficient, as enemies are often bulky but rarely reach beyond 45+ Spd, with fast ones hovering around 40 to 45 and often times less. With buffs, she can easily reach 50 Spd even at +0. There are rare cases where an enemy is super fast, but that is rare and far between.
  7. Oh my Naga! SR!Laevatein is SOOOOOOO CUUUUUUUTE!!!!!!! "Listen to me now, if you touch my sister, I will cut you down!" She is such a fiesty, spicy little sister! How about we share and touch your sister together?
  8. Being the primary method to obtain Grails helps with participation. Grails are basically Orbs 2.0, so they are pretty important in that regard.
  9. I wish there is also a "do not care" option for question 3 and 5. Similar to question 1, I do not care who gets released in Grand Hero Battles and Tempest Trials; I picked NPCs and villains out of curiosity because I do not know who the villains are, not because I care about their representation. Similarly, in question 5, I do not care who wields what. I picked F!Byleth because I like waifus, not because I care about what she wields; ideally, I want her to wield a Blade tome, if not, then something stupidly powerful like Dark Mystletainn or Laevatein. Question 5 can also have a "both" option as A!F!Corrin and A!M!Corrin both share Draconic Rage, and F!Robin and M!Robin both have the same exclusive Weapon but just different colors.
  10. Hm... I am not really sure. His base physical bulk is only 66 while his magical bulk is only 62, so both feels really low. Flora in contrast has balanced 76 mixed bulk (factoring Hoarfrost Knife), so Sturdy Impact will can take that to a much safer 86 physical bulk. If the average melee unit's base Atk is 35 and they wield Slaying Weapons with 14 Mt, that is 49 Atk. Super tanks with 2 M!Corrins/Kadens support can get another 12/16 Atk (assuming one of each Drive) for a total of 61/65 Atk. If the super tank runs Distant Counter-Moonbow, SK!Alm is basically dead. If he wants to kill melee units, I think he really needs Sturdy Impact to get his bulk up to 76. Keaton is like a huge fuck you to SK!Alm as he only got 50 something Atk, but his Meisterpaws cannot be Nulled away. The latest dragons can hit a shit ton of raw Atk. DW!F!Corrin with her base Atk and Weapon can reach 68 Atk with 2 M!Corrins and she is too fast to double, and you cannot try to double her by Spd stacking or else SK!Alm does not have the bulk to eat the first counterattack. LD!Y!Tiki, DW!Y!Tiki, A!F!Corrin, and A!M!Corrin can trigger instant Moonbows for an instant game over like the above physical melee units. It feels like SK!Alm can only either take out physical melee units or only dragons, but not both. I guess I will review my defense results and see how players set up their super tanks. I think SK!Alm was overhyped about his effectiveness against tanks, or at least he was pretty easy to manage when I run Sharena during her bonus weeks. He is about as threatening Lancebreaker Reinhardt which my Sharena had no problem shutting down. If I do decide to utilize SK!Alm, I might also need to invest a lot of merges into him to get his bulk up too, which I am not sure I can afford.
  11. How you build her depends on whether you want to use her on Enemy Phase or Player Phase. Player Phase: Dauntless Lance [Spd] Reposition Moonbow (Any A that boosts Atk/Spd) Desperation (Any C) (Any Sacred Seal that boosts Atk, Spd, or Atk/Spd) — Heavy Blade — Flashing Blade If you want her to do one shot kills: Dauntless Lance [Atk] Reposition Moonbow Death Blow Wrath (Any C) (Any Sacred Seal that boosts Atk) Blazing Spam: Dauntless Lance [Atk] Reposition Blazing Light Life and Death Special Spiral (Any C) Hardy Bearing — Attack +3 For Enemy Phase Spd tanking: Dauntless Lance [special] Swap — Reposition Moonbow — Bonfire — Ignis Distant Counter — Darting Breath (not released yet) — (Any A that boosts Atk/Spd, Spd/Def, or Spd/Res) Quick Riposte — Wrath — Null C-Disrupt — Null Follow-Up (Any C) (Any Sacred Seal that boosts Spd, Spd/Def, or Spd/Res) — Quick Riposte For Enemy Phase Def/Res tanking Dauntless Lance [special] Swap — Reposition Moonbow — Bonfire — Ignis Distant Counter — Steady Breath — Steady Stance — Warding Breath — Warding Stance Quick Riposte — Wrath — Null C-Disrupt — Guard (Any C) (Any Sacred Seal that boosts Def, Res, Spd/Def, Spd/Res, or Def/Res) — Quick Riposte Each A skill have different uses and are tailored to different playstyles. It is generally a no brainer if you are used to a certain play style. I would slap Swift Sparrow on everything if I can afford it, with very few exceptions. It is easy to use and provides huge bonuses. However, some players prefer Fury on everything for getting into Desperation range easier, so Fury would be their ideal A skill. It is also good for optional first round Spd tanking. Other players do not mind the risk of giving up first round performance, or they have an easy way of setting up Desperation without putting the nuke through combat, so their ideal would be to aim for the crazy stat bonuses of Brazen Atk/Spd. Atk/Spd Solo is an all round great skill on open maps with its high stat bonuses and it works on both phases, but its positioning requirement is not great for cramped maps so you will need to switch to another A skill, so there could be a huge reliability problem if a lot of content you want to tackle suddenly have lots of cramped maps. There is also the wacky Atk/Spd Push-Renewal combo, but I do not recommend it for difficult content since it seems really difficult to use with its high maintenance cost.
  12. 31,260 = 2^2 * 3 * 5 * 521 You can also join me in finding prime numbers with the https://www.2dtx.com/prime/ website. Whenever you hit a prime number, it feels like you hit a jackpot! It is also a fun math exercise if you want to break up the number into its factors by yourself first before checking with the website. You can also type gibberish if you wish, like "lalalalalalala" or something. Basically, feel free to say anything in addition to counting. Oh, and I LOVE Tay Tay's new song "You Need To Calm Down" and I want to try ordering a "Katy and Taylor combo" at a fastfood restaurant and confuse the cashiers!
  13. Scooby Doo 2, or Scooby Doo Doo, which talks about Scooby's poop's journey through the septic system, solving mysteries like the sewage alligator and fatbergs. Why am I so tired today?
  14. BH!Lyn, Cordelia, Laevatein, VS!Azura, and Olivia form my main team. I have another team which is the same as above, but replace Cordelia and VS!Azura with NS!F!Corrin with Blárblade and HNY!Azura. I do not use it very often as it is mostly just used for quickly killing armor teams that are holed up in a corner, but those teams do not appear very often for me anymore. Sharena, 2 M!Corrins, and 2 Eirs form my super tank team, although I only use it during Sharena's bonus week since other wise she would not have the stats to be a super tank effectively.
