  1. Brave!Lucina's Geirskogul Before: Effective against dragon foes. Grants Def +3. Grants Atk/Spd +3 to sword, lance, axe, bow, dagger, or beast allies within 2 spaces during combat. Grants Def/Res +3 to sword, lance, axe, bow, dagger, or beast allies within 2 spaces during combat, and if foe initiates combat against those allies, grants Special cooldown charge +1 per attack to those allies. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.) After: Effective against dragon foes. Grants Def+3. Grants Atk/Spd +3 to sword, lance, axe, bow, dagger, or beast allies within 2 spaces during combat. Grants Def/Res +3 to sword, lance, axe, bow, dagger, or beast allies within 2 spaces during combat. If foe using sword, lance, axe, dragonstone, or beast damage initiates combat against those allies, triggers [Savior] on unit. If unit triggers [Savior], grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +3 during combat. [Savior] - Unit takes ally's space, enters combat in ally's place, and receives all after-combat effects. Savior will not trigger if ally is on terrain that unit cannot move to or if multiple units are able to use Savior during the same combat. If Savior triggers, after-combat movement effects do not occur. The Breath-like effect is removed, but in return she gains Spectrum Savior against melee foes. In addition, she also receives the stats she gives her physical allies (All+3) while triggering Savior.
  2. I went with a more defensive and supportive build on mine, though once I get Ylgr from this Hall of Forms I'll change it to the second build. First build: Dire Breidablik Reposition Ruptured Sky Fort. Def/Res 3 Wings of Mercy 3 Inf. Hexblade 3 Fort. Def/Res 2 -5 Atk and +10 Def/Res, with Wings of Mercy and Infantry Hexblade letting my physical non-beast Infantry have a better chance in some fights. I also placed my Summoner in the Res team, so I should be guaranteed to live at least one combat against a tome/staff user. Second build: Dire Breidablik Reposition Ignis Steady Impact Special Spiral 3 Rouse Spd/Def 3 Swift Sparrow 2 Possible +4/17/16 Spd/Def if I initiate on a turn I wasn't adjacent to anyone (which is even easier in the new Mjolnir's Strike than before). Ignis with Special Spiral means that after activating it once, I'll be able to trigger Ignis every third attack; when I initiate, this means that I should be able to activate Ignis at least on my second attack every combat unless my foe has Guard. I'll also place my Summoner in the Def team to give Ignis more damage. At least this way I'll be able to contribute, though by how much I don't really know.
  3. An Artificial Merge would be a resource that adds +1 to any unit's merge count (if that wasn't obvious enough). The question I have for everyone here is would this be healthy to add to the game? On one hand, there are a good number of units who have not been seen since their debut banner. For those people who have these units, Artificial Merges would be a great way to finally allow them to get those units to +10. Artificial Merges would also be a great answer to how IS would let Alfonse, Sharena, and Anna eventually get to +10 themselves. On the other hand, Artificial Merges would allow a lot of people to become content with getting less copies of a unit from banners, since banes are lost on getting +1 on their merge count. It would also make people less reliant on Combat Manuals for the sake of merges for certain units (though this can be considered a positive thing as well). In the end, one major thing that comes to mind is how much would it cost us to buy it, or if would be able to be obtainable through quests or one or more of the various game modes. Would it have a price tag equaling that of a Forma Soul, or perhaps it could be equal to a FEH Pass subscription. It could also be somewhere in between. Maybe IS could also view them as being less expensive than a FEH Pass, or — as unlikely as it would be — even more expensive than a Forma Soul. Personally, I think a good price for an Arfifical Merge would be $15 (or the equivalent of $15 in other currencies), with a limit of 1 per month outside of quests giving it as a reward. However, it could also be a good addition for the FEH Pass itself (though with how the FEH Pass works, that means if we spent our money in the right way we'd be able to get 3 Artificial Merges for just $10). What do you all think about this? Could it be something that could be implemented into FEH? Would it be appreciated?
  4. Swap is actually extremely useful in Aether Raids for some units with warping skills, especially if those units use Bond or Unity skills as well. My Brave!Edelgard has Swap and the Atk/Res Bond 3 seal, and she's been able to teleport to her allies and put herself right where she wants (even if an ally is already there, since she's...well, swapping in with them).
  5. In terms of Movement-based Assist skills, Reposition is the best one in the game by far. The ability to move a unit out of danger like that is too good to not be anyone's favorite. In terms of Movement-based skills in general (specifically skills based on warping), I'm tied between several: Flower Hautclere, Ground Orders, and Wings of Mercy. The first has a lot of other skills attached, but the main one here is the ability to easily let Brave!Edelgard (the exclusive user of this weapon) warp to an ally within Drive distance. That opens up a lot of potential with positioning, especially when you take Reposition or Swap into consideration. The second allows for a Flier to give that warp-ability to non-Fliers. My favorite user of this is Halloween!Nowi who I also inherited Escape Route to, because of Grimoire. Combining the three skills, she's allowed to warp both herself and her non-Flier allies with relative ease, and this allowed me to get up to Tier 19 in Aether Raids before I thought of using other strategies. The third is great because of dancers. You put this on multiple dancers and have one of your units attack in such a way that they take heavy (but not fatal) damage, those dancers will be able to warp to that unit from anywhere. Even better if you put it on a Flier dancer like Peony or Plumeria, as they won't be stopped by sea or mountain tiles.
  6. I thought I'd make a topic for those that wanted to share any unconventional or ingenious uses for skills they've found out about, either through experimentation or by someone else telling them. By unconventional or ingenious, I mean any uses for those skills that may or may not have been intended or thought out when the skills were released. I'll start us off to give you a general idea of what I mean. Note that I'll change or remove things if I'm wrong, so tell me if so. 1 - The Unity skills (Atk/Def Unity and Atk/Res Unity so far) only work against field penalties (from daggers, Chills, etc). The Lull passive skills bypass this, as the stat penalties it inflicts (as miniscule as they are) are during combat. (This may have been the intended idea behind the Plegian weapons, to be used as a counter against the Unity skills.) 2 - Combining Miracle, Mystic Boost, and Heavy/Flashing Blade (or a similar skill) can potentially stop many foes from eliminating your unit; as Mystic Boost heals your unit after combat, you can be brought to 1 HP many times, as long as you can keep the unit alive until Miracle is ready to activate. Brave!Ike, Brave!Hector, and both genders of Default!Byleth can abuse this interaction well, especially the first and last due to the first's superior damage reduction and the last's ability to prevent the foe from using the effects of many skills that would allow them to take him/her out before Miracle procs. EDIT: Hel also does this very well thanks to Hel's Reaper. 3 - Saintly Seraphim's effect can be translated to mean "for every 4 Res the foe has, the foe loses 1 Res". Using the same logic, Triangle Adept can be translated to mean "for every 5 Atk the unit in WTA, the foe loses 1 Def/Res". Combining the two with a skill like Glimmer that deals damage based on the damage the unit inflicts, you can easily OTK most blue units with the greatest of ease (especially if you combine these with her Soul of Zofia, which has a Desperation-esque effect). 4 - A unit with 44 max HP or lower that is damaged by the effect of an ally Winter!Bernadetta's Hrist can use Ardent Sacrifice on her and immediately get into Desperation HP%, as the total HP lost from this is 11. Adding additional Winter!Bernadettas increases this by 4 max HP for each Hrist proc, as they each activate their own effect at the start of the turn simultaneously. 5 - A second interaction with Hrist and Ardent Sacrifice. If the unit with Ardent Sacrifice also has Fury 4, you can use Dance on that unit (after it uses Ardent Sac.) before attacking with said unit, taking a total loss of 19 HP. A unit with 38 or less max HP will be able to proc their own Escape Route or an ally's Wings of Mercy after losing that much HP, potentially setting up a sweep (especially due to Galeforce and now Canto existing). This is sort of an experimental thread, honestly, but I'd like to see if you guys have any interesting skill combinations 🙂 You don't have to be as thorough as I am, but at least some general explanation about the skill combination would be great!
  7. Lightning Blow A Passive Tier 0, Inheritable (similar to the Hone/Goad/Fortify/Ward C Passives) Inheritable to non-Staff only Effect: Unit's Def and Res are halved during combat. If unit initiates combat, disables foe's non-Special skills that "reduce damage by X%". Grants any unit that uses this skill the ability to completely disable the foe's damage reduction skills, at the cost of severely cutting down on their own defenses. Only meant for units with the Atk to back up their role, especially considering that it doesn't grant the unit any stat boosts aside from the damage increase inherently gained from disabling damage reduction. Ardent Sacrifice+ Assist Tier 2, Inheritable (upgrade of Ardent Sacrifice) Inheritable to non-Staff only Effect: Restores 15 HP to target ally. Unit loses 15 HP but cannot go below 1. After first combat combat against unit each turn in which a foe initiated combat, restores 10 HP to all adjacent allies (if any). An upgrade of Ardent Sacrifice. Its healing (and self-harm) is higher, and it also heals all adjacent allies during the enemy phase after the first attack a foe launched against the unit. Great for pseudo-Healers, especially those that have great self-sustain.
  8. Magi-Science Mastery A Passive Exclusive (Fenrir) Effect: During odd turns, unit can move up to 3 spaces and is unaffected by terrain when moving. If unit initiates combat, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+3 times the spaces traversed when initiating this battle to unit during combat (max 9). After combat in which unit initiated combat, inflicts Atk/Spd/Def/Res -2 for each space moved before combat (max 6) until unit's next action. I know the wording is a bit weird, but this is how it works. 1) Fenrir gains the movement of Cavalry, and the terrain traversal of Fliers, during odd turns. This is because I feel he's going to create a dragon mech that'll be so powerful that it'll give him these abilities. 2) Grants him All+3 times the number of spaces he moved to initiate combat. This means that if he moves 1 space to attack a foe, he only gets All+3, but if he moves the max spaces to initiate combat then he'll gain All+9. And of course, if he moves 2 spaces then he'll only gain All+6. The value gained is dependent on the immediate combat, and not any prior initiations, so he won't be at All+9 if he somehow gets to attack again (like from a Dancer). 3) Inflicts All-2, -4, or -6 depending on the spaces moved when initiating combat. This sort of mimics the whole "overheating" aspect of machinery, making him less effective after combat the more power he pours into his attacks. If a unit with high Res (or Def AND Res if the unit's range is 2) and Atk manages to push through his most powerful attacks, he'd be able to be counterattacked next turn with no real difficulty.
  9. For Pawns of Loki, is Max HP really as important as it's hyped to be? Like sure, having a huge amount of HP gets you more points. But it's not the max HP that matters at the end of each round, it's the remaining HP. Therefore, I believe that HP Sustain builds matter more than Max HP builds. But therein lies the problem: where do you draw the line between power (taking out enemies), sustain (self-healing/withstanding damage), and max HP (getting as many points as possible)?
  10. Maestra's Melody Weapon (Blue Tome) Exclusive (Timeskip!Dorothea) Might/Effect: 14 Might. During odd-numbered turns, unit and allies within 2 spaces cannot be inflicted with negative status effects (preventing counterattacks, restricting movement, etc.) that last through those allies' next actions. At the start of even-numbered turns, if 2 or more allies have ≥ 90% HP and unit's Special triggers by attacking, grants Special cooldown count -1, and grants Atk/Res +6 during combat this turn. A weapon that cycles through a supportive effect and offensive effect each turn. During odd turns, she prevents herself allies within Drive distance from getting inflicted with negative status effects like Gravity and Isolation, pretty much giving her a better version of half of Harsh Command+ during these turns. During even turns, she gets the special cooldown charge of Wrath and an Atk/Res +6 combat buff this turn, but this only applies if she has 2 or more allies on the map that have ≥90% HP; this makes her a bit like Nemesis, but in a way that works for her supportive nature. Mainly...she focuses on support during odd turns, and offense during even turns. Songstress B Passive Exclusive (Timeskip!Dorothea) Effect: Unit and adjacent allies gain: "Disables foe's skills that "calculate damage using the lower of foe's Def or Res" and "calculate damage from staff like other weapons."" If unit attacks, restores 6 HP to unit and adjacent allies after combat. Pretty much a Spur-range Joint Mystic Boost, but she's the only one that triggers the healing portion of Mystic Boost.
  11. One of the common clichés of deities in many literary works they appear in is being one-dimensional in a way that befits their powers (in their personality, the way they operate, etc.) In fact, we've seen this in FEH already: Surtr is fiery, ill-tempered, and is easily prone to anger, while Hel was was bored, done with everyone's shit, and had an "are we done here?" outlook. You know...in that way, I actually see a lot of similarities between FEH's Hel and Disney's Hades. I know they're both from different pantheons, and Sassy Hades isn't exactly the real portrayal of the true mythological figure, but the thought of the two scheming together makes me chuckle. Anyhow, deities being one-dimensional would also bleed into the way they interact with the world around them. Freyja being highly egotistical (even more so than other deities, to the point where she's practically portrayed as spoiled) and essentially being the definition of Snarky Bitch™ was so obvious, and it bled into her interactions with everyone except for Freyr and the Dokkalfr (and even then, after Freyr's death I think she only truly cared for Triandra to an extent). It only got worse after Freyr's death; even the possible theory of trying to wake Kiran up wouldn't change this about her. Goal in mind or not, this is a spoiled deity suffering...and they don't suffer quietly. If my theory is at least somewhat right, then this might also support it. If King Freyr knew the truth all along and sought to keep Kiran dreaming, giving him an item that wouldn't work properly without already having the self-realization needed to wake up would only help drag Kiran further into the dream. That is, however, until Freyja stole his powers; at that point, the ball was in her court and she pretty much had free reign to do almost whatever she wished
  12. Hmm...y'know, seeing that theory up there about Al being dead from back in Book 3 got me thinking about something. Has anyone here heard the saying about wanting a "peaceful lie" over a "painful truth"? And throughout the chapter, they've practically been telling us directly that dreams aren't what they seem. We also know that while Queen Freyja obtained the power to control dreams, she had to steal that power from King Freyr. And we also know that Queen Freyja, despite now having all the power in the world, seemed awfully keen on getting "Alfonse" to end the dream and wake up. So here's my theory. What if King Freyr was the "bad guy" all along, and Queen Freyja was the real "good guy" here? What if King Freyr purposely led the "Askr Trio" astray, going so far as to give them a tool that misled them into thinking it worked in the first place, because he wanted to shield Kiran from the reality of the real Alfonse's death? And Queen Freyja — the Queen of Nightmares, who not-so-subtly seemed to push the party rather than break them — led Kiran into coming into his self-realization, because she actually wants for him to end the dream. She wants him to wake up and push forward, because being trapped in ignorant bliss will never truly solve anything, so she chose to become the villain that would provide the right kind of motivation to wake Kiran up. That may also be why Freyja and the Dokkalfr seem to take delight in tormenting the Ljosalfr; she knows that Peony and Mirabilis are only there to assist in trapping Kiran in the dream, and by tormenting the Ljosalfr, they become predictable and unknowingly work together with Freyja into waking him up faster. Idk, it seems like a stretch but...at the same time, it kinda makes sense. And it's also a theory that can be "revealed as true" in Book 5 — because it's not the kind of theory anyone has to realize right away — so it's not like IS would have to devote the entirety of Chapter 13 to explaining it. It could just be that "truth" that's thrust upon the Summoner when the All Father attempts to taunt him before summoning a boss for said Summoner to fight.
  13. A dream within a dream...darkness within darkness... All joking aside, I liked this one. Although it feels like they just had Plumeria die off, I do like that Peony cried for her. And that was a good plot twist at the end of part 5. It leaves me with high hopes for what the correlation of Book 5 will be...perhaps Light and Darkness in terms of morality? Could we end up going against Askr's gods? Here's a real theory...
