  1. I'm really glad she's a flier. I was dreading her being an infantry or something, which would make me have to lug her around and figure out tactics teams for astra in AR. This should make things more comfortable for my units. I like her art, though too bad about her skills. She seems pretty boring, not to mention granting dragon effectiveness to allies is hardly useful in AR offense. That's much more potent for defense teams. Feels a shame to do, but maybe Lightning Breath and a flier buff may be the budget way to go for her. Not that keen on the A skill either, over just tossing on Fury or something else consistent.
  2. I hope Louise will be cool. Maybe we'll finally see somebody content with Lyn (more than Sue did anyway). Absolutely based.
  3. Indeed. This behavior is ridiculous, time and time again, too.
  4. Got my Fjorm guess right. It really was just the art that made her look loli-sized. Not really interested in these older characters, though Fjorm looks pretty cool. She'll also be amazing in AR with that assist-canceling staff. The pulse smoke is very nice for AR too, but I don't think I'd pull for that, especially not when the unit shares a color too. I'd like Fjorm but I'll probably be skipping for Astra and continued CYL savings.
  5. I'm maintaining my Fjorm guess. Only other thing it could be to me is Ylgr, but while I don't think they have any issue making another loli bride no matter what backlash happened, Fjorm just makes more sense to get a bride alt. Either way, it's basically for sure it's a Nifl sister, since the hair, seemingly Fjorm's earrings and the even the little sparkle effect line up. (Maeshima Shigeki is who uses those type of sparkles in his art)
  6. Left looks like Fjorm going by the hair and earrings. It's short enough I thought of a loli at first, but the Fjorm IS short, and the details make me lean towards her. Right seems like it could be Seliph or possibly Lyon.
  7. I'd like another Fates banner. There's still a few first gen characters I'd really like to get, like Charlotte(regular), Benny, Nyx, Orochi, etc. I feel like the next banner will be either Awakening or Sacred Stones, though. Been a while since they got banners and I'd think Awakening in particular wouldn't get too much longer of a drought.
  8. I'd probably grail her too if I didn't have such a backup of grail projects already. It'd be really cool if she ends up with some WoM/Escape Route type prf. She could get stuck with a generic tome(watch her randomly get the red serpent tome to troll us), but maybe she'll get a cool prf to match the rest of the units.
  9. Yeah that's fair. Not possessed in the same way, but it still works. I like they signify it with her tail being left out.
  10. The banner looks great! Berkut is pretty much perfection, and the rest look really nice too. Corrin's a bit random since she's the only one of them who never actually gets possessed. They could have picked Gunter or something instead, but she's still looking good. Possessed Delthea for the GHB sounds really nice too. More power creep skills, but it's to be expected. Another round of really nice fallen alts overall, and I'd like to get them all if I weren't saving for other things right now.
  11. Alm and colorless overall looks great on this banner, but I'll have to skip so I can keep saving for other things. I don't have any of them and would like Leanne and even Eirika as well, but brides and summer are coming up, plus the astra mythic next month which will be required for AR scoring. All I can say about Alm is "we are very concerned about power creep." I don't look forward to seeing him whaled out on AR defense teams in the near future, especially not during his bonus weeks.
  12. It's pretty much like clockwork. I'm liking the Cherry Blossom festival idea for a seasonal. I forgot it was that time of year (trees are still all dead where I am and I don't even remember it's April half the time) Fallen heroes 2 will probably happen at some point, but they could just be another non-seasonal like last time still. Once again, I think I'm one of the few who's cool with more seasonals. My only gripe is my orbs can't keep up with them.
  13. If that gives me a chef Peri alt, I'm all for it. Take my money.
  14. Yeah, that's fair. Just trying to think of what other popular themes FEH hasn't really done for a seasonal and that one at least has something to work with. It's more likely it's just brides moved up for some reason. The tap battle name seems like it could point toward that too.
  15. Brides or not, I hope the characters are ones I can skip. My orbs definitely aren't up for another seasonal this month. My hope's been to save at least until the astra mythic if I can. Highly likely they put at least 1 unit I want on it, though. If it's another filler seasonal like the hot springs banner, and not brides, I'm not sure what it could be. They could go for something like a maid/butler theme banner. I know that's a popular limited banner theme for some gachas. We've even got the Fates maid/butler outfits as a basis for it if they wanted to, at least.
  16. I've got a feeling we'll see either Camilla or Lucina as a bride. If Lucina isn't a bride then I'm thinking she might come for summer instead. (my other summer guess is Tharja, but not sure if they'd do both Lucina and Tharja together) Eirika's a good candidate too, but she's been expected ever since the first bride banner and didn't happen twice now. It'll surely have her on one eventually, though. Not expecting any grooms on the banner. Maybe another TT one, though.
  17. Of course, though I'd say the differences from those prfs is still a lot more than can be said for Gerome and Haar. It's just especially close with them. Gradivus is pretty major in letting Camus can be used different from Finn, and Takumi's niche effect even has a little more use now for with AR. (Poor Clarisse just has nothing at all over him, though. Hopefully she gets a refine herself at some point)
  18. Yes, I mean with a Bonfire charged Michalis has a higher output with it on player phase due to the Wo Dao effect. Just an extra flair he has. Enemy phase-wise, I don't find much to talk about between them since they're close enough you might as well just build whichever one you like best. I've run numbers too, and the difference is just not that big. I don't even like Michalis, but of the 3 options he's got a little more damage potential. For primarily walling things, I'd rather just use Beruka over any of them anyway, so that's why I put a bit more emphasis on their higher damage when looking at them. The point is that besides favoritism he's pretty much just Gerome again. Kind of uninteresting to have 2 units in the GHB/TT pool that are about the same. I guess his Wave fodder is what's supposed to be most unique about him.
  19. Eh, Michalis still has his higher nuke power with his specials so give him an edge for it. Their performance is very close in raw stats, but Haar, like Gerome, doesn't bring anything unique to the table. As I said, he's not bad, just nothing exciting and takes more feathers to make use of than even Gerome. Beruka is the best and cutest of all the defensive axes anyway
  20. Haar is basically just Gerome again, which is pretty sad. Outside of favoritism it seems like there's no reason to bother with him. Gerome already came at 5* and has a less common weapon he can just keep for anti-cav AA use. If you want a defensive GHB axe flier, Michalis is better and has a prf and Cherche is vastly superior for an actual Brave Axe build with her prf. Poor Haar needs to be both promoted and get a weapon replacement. That said, he's not bad, just nothing special or interesting. Even the fodder's not that great. And yeah, it's kind of looking like no demotes again after seeing the stats. Mordecai didn't seem like a clear demote to begin with thanks to his Beast Exp skill, but now with those stats he seems even less so. Maybe Ranulf for being a "worse Kaden"? Still not seeming too likely.
  21. I don't mind them character-wise, but I think their implementation and way they play just feels messy in FEH. I still wish they were more like dragons 2.0 instead of unique Yu-Gi-Oh weapons for each one and the team building and usability restrictions they have. I also find their transformations kind of clashing with the rest of the game's aesthetic. I prefer the way dragons stay human on the map and just transform for battle, but that's just me.
  22. I'm still really not a fan of beast units, so this looks like another pass for me. Got Velouria just because she was a favorite in Fates, but I don't care for how they play in FEH. Kind of wish beasts were never even a thing, honestly. Or implemented essentially the same as dragons. Looks like Mr. Armor Lion will be a pain to deal with on whale AR stall teams if you're not running a melee armor killer. (I use Bow Hinoka so I'm a bit annoyed) AR offense tanks that have innate DC will probably like DD4 as well. Honestly, more beasts and another power creep skill is a bit of a groan from me. I'm glad most people who didn't have their favorite in the first round of Laguz got them in this wave, though.
  23. My wallet would catch fire if they did this. At the very least they need to give us a chef hat accessory to put on her one day.
  24. The changes are good if you don't want/need the old units or their fodder much, so now your pity breakers are generally of a higher quality being mostly recent units with mostly better skills. Almost everything in the current pity breaker pool is a great unit or great fodder. However, if you're missing many older units that you wanted you just lost your chances to fill some of those holes while summoning for other things. I see people keep scoffing at this notion or saying "well just summon for them on a focus if you want them that much." Realistically, it can be hard to spare orbs for older units' banners when you're trying to spend on new seasonals and new heroes as well. While obviously nobody should be using pity breakers as the primary way to try and get something, if you're going to get pity broken anyway those older units you're missing may be stuff you wanted too. Personally, I've gotten a fair number of units I was missing through pity breakers, almost none of which I would have been able to afford spending orbs on while keeping up with the flow of actual new units. And I was happy to get them too. Hector, Takumi, Micaiah, Azura, Mia, Leo, etc. I could go on. Unit-wise, I've never really had a problem with the 5* pity pool, besides the obvious non-5* exclusive ones. And if we want to talk about pity breakers in general, yeah they're not as desirable as the focus unit you're chasing, but that hasn't changed. Just the variety of what you might get. I'm relatively neutral on this change. Glad the pity pool has almost nothing bad in it anymore, but bummed this means my chances of getting units I missed like Ryoma, OG Lyn, Julia, etc. are pretty much completely gone. Almost certain I won't have orbs to spare for old unit banners when I want so many new seasonals and other things first. Hoping they'd show up on that slip pity chance was about all there was. Also doesn't help when units you want may be extremely rare to get actually banners. I know it's a meme, but imagine if you WANTED somebody like Luke. Well, pity breaks was it if you missed him. Anybody wanting Linde in her extremely long banner drought had no other chance either.
  25. Very nice, 800 flags dumped for Grima. Let's see if Idunn can tank the multiplier since it's not an actual 7.5x difference anymore, so she might have a chance. That gain in same status last hour was pretty big.
