  1. There's no "best game" in Fire Emblem. Everyone here has there own favourite and can easily give many reasons as to why that is. My personal favourite is Awakening, but since you've already played that I'd say finish Sacred Stones and then start with Blazing Blade. They're some of my favourites in the series after Awakening and I think either of them are great choices to play going forward. Once you finish those, I'd recommend Path of Radiance and its sequel; Radiant Dawn. Those two are tough to find nowadays though so you may want to hold off unless you don't mind putting a dent in your wallet.

    Nice Dragon Emblem team! I have a Fae and Nowi on other teams that I'm trying to build in a similar way. No Young Tiki though. Only one missing so far.

    Now that I look at this more this looks awfully familiar to a team that destroyed me in the arena recently...

    (4th place is a turn-over for the arena).


    More Robin is never wrong. Bon choix! (Pardon me if this is wrong. My french is very rusty.)

    Main Team - I use this team a lot. Any daily maps, or new story maps, this is the team I use first.

      Reveal hidden contents


    Masked Marth - Still building her/him up, but is a reliable passive healer, and a strong sword unit. I can't wait for the Falchion upgrades!!

    Delthea - Even though she is -Atk, she is a very strong attacker. With Dark Aura she is also great for buffing up B!Ike and Marth. Need a better IV.

    B!Ike - Currently my best/ favorite unit to use! He tanks almost everything! He has earned that Summoner Support time and time again.

    Brave Lyn - Used to round out the team (one of each color). But she is very strong. Good utility.


    Some units that I'm currently building/ recently finished building. I really like them in-game, and I use them as my secondaries/backups.

    Arvis - I really like his debuffs and utility as a passive healer. I've used him a lot in TT's. Thanks to the recent two TT's I've been able to merge him. SS will change/upgrade.

    Micaiah - Thani is amazing! Using her in this current TT, and she is great! She will take a main role on my future Arena teams.

    Berkut - One of my favorite characters in the series, so I was determined to build him up. Still need DC (And maybe a Gunnthra for a teammate), but his potential is amazing!

    PA!Olivia - One of my favorite dancers to use. Still building her up, but I do want to keep this passive healing build. (might get wind/watersweep).


    That team looks dangerous. I really like the explanations too. If I may make a suggestion for Masked Marth, maybe try Renewal 3 for your B slot and Reciprocal Aid as your skill. I ran something similar to that on Lucina and it worked pretty well.

    My favorite team to use is my main horse team since I like horses a lot and they're really good in this game!

    Other than this one, I mix my teams up a lot, but I guess I would say this one would be my favorite if I comprised it of my favorites with balance. :3

    Azura could also be swapped for Reinhardt or Linde here.

    And lastly, a team I want to try soon because it'll be pretty balanced! Ike Emblem with Azura. XD

    Oh, I forgot to give Azura the Hone Spd seal again, lol oops. I do normally give that to her though!

    My teams will always have a Frederick or Ike or both though. XD Usually RD Ike and regular Freddy.

    The last images on each of your teams seem to be missing. Either way though, really cool setup. I don't see much of Seth or Abel so its nice to see them get some love.

    Also the lone Azura with all those Ikes XD

    Here is my good ol' team. They helped me reach Tier 20 in arena for the first time and remain as a pretty good core imo even if they've fallen out of use:

    Now this team should surprise nobody and it is pretty imbalanced but it is meant to show a message:

    I have other teams like my Horse Emblem, Flier Emblem and my grinding teams which are pretty awesome too but the two above are the biggest achievements to me.

    That's a strong team! Hector, Nowi, and Ike have been pretty consistent since their inclusion but Bridal Lyn's not one I see often though. I don't see healers often period.

    Your title as 'Official Eirika Fanboy' is strong here lol. Seeing Arya makes me kinda salty though. I whaled quite hard for her during her banner and ended up getting Eldigan... THREE TIMES!!!

    My teams vary a lot according to HM and sometimes TT bonuses. My arena team is most consistent with Male Robin, and Lucina being mainstays. Nino used to be a staple but Cherche has been showing up a lot lately.

    Special mention to my horse emblem Team of Titania, brave Roy, Camus, and Reinhardt, and my flier team of Ceada, Cordelia, Catria, and Cherche.

    I do the same. I usually switch out Hector during TT if I need the bonus unit. Outside of that though, my main team has stayed pretty much the same. I originally had Azura and Lucina on the team but I replaced Azura with Axezura and Lucina has since been moved to another team with Fae, Takumi and Shareena.

    I've also got a Horse Emblem team in the works with Leo, Titania, Reinhardt and Brave Lyn and an incomplete Flier Emblem team with Summer Corrin, Spring Camilla and Elincia. The final spot will be reserved for Tana if I ever summon her.

    Also just as a side note, really like your fics. Broken Bird and Waiting on the Future are some of my favourites.

  3. As of today, Fire Emblem Heroes is a year old. A ton of new heroes have been added since day one and we're only going to get more. So now I think is a good time to celebrate this year by showcasing the heroes you've built throughout this first year. 

    So whether its your team (or teams) that you've specifically built to dominate the arena, or just a team you made because you like the characters, now's your chance to to show off a little.

    Show us what you've got!

  4. Holy hell that's a great banner! Myrrh, L'Arachel are finally in and they're not at all what I thought they'd be. I never considered Myhrr to be a flying unit and I figured L'Arachel to be a healer.

    Also new Eirika. I wonder if this will affect the CYL vote at all though.  

  5. My money for the male's side is Hector and Chrom/Ephraim. Hector I think has his spot locked down. Chrom has enough fans but I think Ephraim may have gotten enough of a boost thanks to Heroes to surpass him. If I'm really stretching it, Marth will take 2nd.

    As for the females... well what I hope for is Eirika and Azura. Eirika because like Ephraim I think she'd get a boost from Heroes plus I think she deserves the spot more so than the Tharja, Camilla or Corrin. Azura I think could get 2nd because of her already existing popularity, plus her appearance in Warriors and her 3 incredible units in Heroes.

    That's what I hope anyway. What will probably happen is Tharja and Camilla will still win it because fanservice though...

    Make your bets. Who'll win the VG? My money is on Celica, Eirika, Hector and Sigurd.

    For the males side my money is on Chrom and Hector. Hector has enough fans that he'll probably stay where he is but I think Chrom could pass him thanks to Warriors. 

    As for the females... That's tougher. I'd like to say Eirika will move up and Azura will get a boost because of Warriors and just how good she is in Heroes in all her variations. But then again this fanbase somehow thought Tharja, Camilla, F!Corrin and Nowi belonged in the top 10 so...

  7. So this is a whole new vote. I wonder how much a heroes usefulness in the game will effect how many votes they get. (Like will Reinhardt get a boost in votes because of how he dominates the meta)

    Anyway assuming we get 7 votes I'll vote for characters we haven't gotten yet. Those being: L' Arachel, Myrrh, Tibarn, Silas, Leif, Erk and Silque.

    If we get 13 the remainder of my votes will be going to M!Robin. Gotta stick with my favourite.

  8. My main is Robin. I love his moveset and I find he's the most versatile of the mages, being able to run anything from destroying everyone with his high magic stat or being a supprt That and personal bias. Robin's my favourite character so it's a given that he'd be my main.

    Going by weapon types though:

    Sword: Lyn - Her moveset is fantastic with everyone of her combos basically turning this game to easy mode.

    Lance: Oboro - Like her as a character and she's a solid duelist. Plus her strong attack where she makes a hurricane is RIDICULOUSLY good at clearing whole fortresses.

    Axe: Lissa - Its hilarious watching her swing this giant axe through hordes of enemies.

    Bow: Anna? - Honestly, I don't use bow users that much. I don't care much for any of the Fates archers so Anna gets this one.

    Tome: Robin - Reasons why above.

  9. I don't really hate or like Nowi, but I she's more of a positive than a negative more me in terms of character. Her childishness is grating at times, but then we have supports with her where she shows that she's much more mature than she lets on and that makes me like her more.  For me that adds another layer to her character. That her behaviour is actually just her trying to enjoy her life with her human friends as best as possible knowing full well they'll all die long before she does. 

    Also I really enjoy her interactions with Tiki and Tharja. Her ability to change Tiki's outlook on living longer than her friends and her probably being one of the few characters that actually befriends Tharja are adorable.

    All that said, it's ultimately her design that puts me off. The only possible reason I can think of for her choice in clothes is simply that she's naively unaware or she just doesn't care because she'll out live people so there's no reason to change.

    I suppose I should have compared the story to Conquest. That may have been less controversial. I mean, I can't exactly afford having a huge argument about another game's story in an Echoes thread.

    My point was merely that as flawed as Echoes story may be, it still surpasses the bar that has been set by the previous two games by miles. Because those stories were not just bad, they were genuinely soul-crushing painful, with self-centric or even downright sociopathic protagonists and self-congratulating avatars whose role as a representation of the player is nothing short of insulting.

    Like, Alm may be a Mary Sue that everyone loves and all... but one of the differences towards the likes of Corrin and Robin is that he actually lives up to all the praise. He actually is a genuinely good and compassionate person.

    I don't think its really fair to compare Robin and Corrin to Alm in the same manner. Robin, for example earns the trust and praise he gets as the game progresses due to his actions and his interactions with the cast. 

    Corrin is loved immediately because they are Corrin and are praised despite being an idiot and naive.

    Calling it now: Banner with only one focus unit: Axe Lissa.

    All I'd want is Axe Lissa.

    I'd be surprised. I sure do expect the new MCs from the game on some kind of banner though. I wouldn't even mind 1-2 banners with just some of the regular characters from the roster on it too. I could really go for a new banner with Hinoka on it.

    I honestly completely forgot about the new MCs. They don't intrigue me that much design wise but I'll wait and see on their personalities.

    Totally agree on Hinoka being in the banner though.   

  12. So with a new FE Warriors event coming up, do you think we might see a new banner with heroes using a different weapon type? We've seen some characters using different weapons during their special moves in some of the gameplay trailers while other characters use different weapons entirely. 

    Would this interest any of you? If so, who would you want to see in it? 

    Personally, I'd want to see Robin with his Levin Sword, Lissa with an axe, and Lucina and Sakura with a bow.

  13. Yes. I loved Awakening and its my favourite game in the series.

    Like a good number of people on here, Awakening was the game that introduced me to the series (and by extension, this community). Since then, I've acquired and played through the rest of the Fire Emblem series and Awakening remains my favourite of the bunch. The story was good (not the best in the series but still good), the characters have become my favourite cast through out the series, the music is beautiful and I found the gameplay to be the most fun I've had in series. 

    Now I'm very aware of the flaws Awakening has. However, I never found them so glaring that it limited how much fun I had. My biggest gripe with Awakening is that it doesn't give a whole lot of explanation as to the why or how of certain things in the world. It tells enough to get the job done, but not enough to really go in depth. It doesn't detract from my fun, but it does make me wish for more sometimes.

    Well that's probably true

    Robin needed you more! No matter, soon enough we shall have another bonus. I am seriously hoping we get one more!


    I think it'd be better to just spend what we have now. I don't think we're gonna get another multiplier in time before the match is over and even if we did the difference could be too big to catch. 

  15. Just now, omegaxis1 said:

    Yes! Alright Robins, let's keep up the pressure. We can still win this. Conserve the strength you have and bide your time. 

    Well, the logic might still be a bit of a stretch, but its not too far of a stretch. It could have been executed differently and more well thought out, I admit.

    True. That could be said for a lot of things with Fates. Either way, we've gone way off topic in this thread so wanna end it here?

    No, I get it. But even if she resembles the girl, you have to really be able to have super vision to see closely. Plus, consider this as well. Given how naive Corrin is, and how sheltered he's been, it honestly would not be uncalled for if from a distance, a girl from a distance seems to have similar hair color to Azura and hair length, he could even consider that this could be just some girl that looks like her. By all logic, Azura should not have been able to get into the performance, but she did. 

    And Azura made a dance and song that was much different from what Corrin's heard or could have seen. In that regard, it doesn't resemble Azura that he remembers at all, so it would be a different person. 

    And most of all... we're forgetting that she's been waterbending the entire time and thus causing the water to also obscure everyone's sight of her.

    I understand what you're saying. But I think that all of that is just a bit of a stretch as too why he doesn't recognize her. Azura's hair and even her outfit is too unique to mistake for someone else, sheltered or not. Not to mention at this point in Conquest, Azura has been traveling with him for a good amount of time. So it wouldn't have been out of the ordinary to hear the different tones of her voice while she practiced at some point. The dance may be different but that doesn't mean he wouldn't recognize the voice. 

    As for her getting into the performance, she was with Corrin before they got to the theatre. She only disappears before the performance and appears immediately after. You don't need to be a genius to put two and two together.

    The waterbending might cause issues during her performance, but there's a bit of time before she starts that I think he'd be able to recognize her.

    Like I said I get what you're saying but it all just seems like too much of a stretch.


  17. Just now, omegaxis1 said:

    Again, remember the distance and the pitch of her voice, along with the lyrics. You cannot see her closely enough to recognize her. Her voice doesn't sound like how Azura usually does, nor do the lyrics match the song that she's been singing most of the time. Clark Kent and Superman are closely resembled here, but the little details is that Azura was disguised for just a little bit, whereas Clark and Superman does this issue all the time.

    I'm just gonna leave this here.
