  1. I haven't finished every FE so I probably won't say too much about some match ups, that said: A: I haven't played the tellius games, but since I haven't heard anything about Brom from the FE fan base, and Effie is absurdly strong, I guess the latter would take it. B: Frederick. Clive is... somewhat stronger than the average, sure, but Frederick is basically the very definition of peak human condition, so... C is complicated, Alphonse and Sharena have more experience, but the twins shoot light beams and their dragon might be stronger than the heroes bosses... I guess I'll give it to the Alphonse and Sharena... As for the ones I've missed:
  2. I guess it depends on where you live, but for Japan and Europe the tweet about mystery (and new mystery) was uploaded today, if that's what you are talking about.
  3. I needed almost 13h to beat it on hard classic, I'm a pretty slow player though. That aside, the man who analyzes your characters in the abyss is a pretty interesting addition. It confirmed that my endgame Edel had trash Str, with a lot whole of one star. 5 stars in HP, Def and Charm though, I guess that's why she was a nice enough tank.
  4. Honestly, I would have liked a golden route, even if it would have been hard, them having goals that aren't that much different makes it difficult to me to think about them agreeing being something impossible, even if it would have been hard, maybe needing Byleth coming back in time after having gone through all the routes or something like that. What "bothers" me more than the lack of a golden route though, it's being forced to kill Edelgard/Dimitri. I understand that it might be too "idealistic", but at the state they are after being defeated it's not like there`s an actual need to kill them, imprisoning them would enough imo.
  5. Now that the DLC is out, maybe we could finish this? It's not like there are that many characters left.
  6. Wait, what!? Does she appear in the present or in a flashback?
  7. Fire = flames, emblem = crest. Also, at least in spanish I can tell you that it's literally called fire emblem, well, emblema de fuego, since it's in spanish.
  8. Does anyone think there'll be more DLC classes? I don't think so, but Yuri being the only leader without special classes is kinda sad.
  9. Take a seat because this may blow your mind. Ready? The fire emblem is the crest of flames.
  10. Reminder that they aren't actually cousins, be it a retcon or IS forgetting to include it in the game, fates artbook lists Mikoto and Arete as not being related by blood.
  11. I used them and will use them again when I replay CF in the future, basically because I always try to use canon classes, but her performance was mediocre. She was always doubled, didn't have that high of a defense and began the final battle with only 35 str, though I don't know if that's because of her class of because of my bad luck, as she was still the character with highest str and def (31) at lvl 40. Still, she was crucial in the final map, where she, with Manuela as adjutant, somehow kept at bay a golem and a couple of mages by herself.
  12. Petra: 7'5/10 Pretty strong for someone without a crest, knowing how to apply her hunting knowledge in the battlefield. That said, and while she is naturally agile, it seems to me that she still could improve in close combat. Felix: 8'5/10 While not as amazing as Edel or dimitri, he is definitely one of the strongests students. He has a major crest, the sword of zoltan, and a relic, this is particularly telling of his strenght as you fight him in the same chapter you fight his father, yet he is the one weilding it. Marianne: 4'5/10 She is not strong, offensive magic isn't what she focuses in, and her physical strenght is not particularly amazing. That said, she has a relic that goes well with her talents, so she should't fall too far behind. If she were in a class that used mounts she probably would have a somewhat higher rank, but since her canon class doesn't have one, this is how she stays. Thales: 8'5/10 I guess he is supposed to be rather strong in canon. Effortlessly stopping the sword of the creator when Byleth was trying to save Jeralt is also kinda impresive, but it not actually being a combat makes it have little value as a feat.
  13. Kinda late, but here are my rankings: Linhardt: 3/10 He is a researcher first, and a healer, not a fighter in any way. If he trained for it, he probably could be quite decent, but since he doesn't he stays low. Annette: 6/10? She is at the very least competent with magic, has a crest and a relic, so she should be able of holding her own in both long distance and close combat. Lysithea: 8/10 Probably the strongest playable mage. Has two crests and is a hardworker, the perfect recipe for a powerhouse. The lack of her very own relic kinda hurts her rank. Cyril: 6/10 Post timeskip he should have a decent amount of experience. Having a wyvern by itself probably makes you average at least tbh.
  14. I was talking more about the lore side of the skills rather than it's gameplay aplications, like, Leonie's rivalry tells us that her performance increases, strenght wise in particular, arround males because of her competitivity, Ferdinand's confidence shows us that he is more "skilled" when he hasn't received damage, likely because being hurt isn't proper of a noble, or Gilbert's veteran knight, showing that his experience allows him to minimize damage by organizing his troop. Some tell about behavior on the battlefield, others about personality or their effects on other people. A few of them can be important to determine a characters "power level" In Jeralt's case, I suppose his fighting style breaks the enemies stances, which makes it much more difficult for them to attack or defend effectively. But that's simply how I see it, if someone thinks that's a stretch, that it's not significant enough to be a reason for ranking higher or lower, or wants to follow more or less strictly the gameplay, that's fine. Yes, and I agree with you in that, I'm not talking about comparing Edelgard and Hilda, I'm talking about comparing Hilda's strenght and skill. Using Hilda as an example, her stats/growths show us what kind of warrior she is, fighting using strenght instead of dexterity. Her speed stat though, shows us that her speed is bigger than her strenght. This might seem like something that you'd end up knowing naturally as you play, but since the level ups have a rng factor...
  15. I see, the only solo ending of him I had seen is the CF one, so that explains it. As for the actual quote, I read that as Alois being a better leader than Jeralt, his group aclomplishes more than Jeralt's, which is vastly different. That said, I can see where you are coming from. I agree that comparing stats between units isn't useful, as they are made taking into considereation the gameplay and not the lore, but I feel like things skills, growth rates and even the stats themselves when comparing them with other stats from the same unit, can tell about a character's abilities, way of fighting and even behavior on the battlefield.
