    The only thing that I think qualifies for a "superboss" or an "Awakening Apotheosis" equivalent is the Gatekeeper Paralogue on Maddening.

    I wouldn't compare it with Apotheosis, Anna was another than the house leaders, the Gatekepper Chapter was more like a medicore max level challenge.
    I got the S rank in maddening with my first try on this difficulty, my Shez wasn't 120 at this point, so I used my first 120 unit Lysithea (as a mortal savant). However I had already maxed out all her stats, but Luck, so it will be more challenging with a fresh 120 character.

    Hopefully we get a Lunatic+ mode, or something else in the future. We need more challenging content for max level, currently I don't have a lot of motivation to max out everyone, because of the lack of postgame content. After the 3 routes and the maddening runs, are only a few achievements left to complete.

  2. A very interesting thread.
    After reading your builds and about your run I came to think about doing myself a run with player phase builds, your report was really refreshing!

    In the past I played a lot of Three Houses NG Maddening and eventually lost my interest in it, I always felt they need to plan everything ahead and to optimize my resource management. Overkilling the dodge tanking was the result, it makes the lategame irrelevant, as in my most recent run of Blue Lions Maddening NG this year, which took 87:22.
    The beloved Lysithea von Ordelia did the work, she has solid Dex./Spd. growths and her highly valuable Mastermind skill - the key to learn many weapons, so I can boost her stats through exams (e.g. General for Hp&Def.) and master sword very fast through combat.

    Class: Falcon Knight Weapon: Rapier+  Item: Chalice of Beginnings Battalion: Cichol Wyvern Co.
    Stats: 48 Hp. 36 Str. 41 Mag. 49 Dex.  79 Spd.  39 Lck. 31 Def. 36 Res. 49 Charm with Battalion 59 Charm.
    Skills: Alert Stance +. Sword Flaire, Sword Crit +10, Sword 5, Sword Avoid +20
    Results: 57 Atk. 170 Hit. 90.Crit 136 Avoid, with Alert Stance+ 166 Avoid, 37 Prt. 37 Rsl.
    This is one of few runs were I got enough speed carrots and solid speed levels to actually cap her speed in NG.
    Enemies are often around 130 hit in the final chapter, they can't do anything against optimized dodge tanks.
    In the battle of Enbarr is Dorothea the only enemy with a very high hit rate of 173, this might be a strike (173-136=37, or 7 with Alert Stance+), but she can't OHK Lysithea with her 61 Atk.
    Its worth to remove Alert Stance+ with something else,  but I don't know what to use instead, maybe death blow or strength +2?

    I am thinking about Player Phase tactics, but they seem to be more troubling to build, on the other hand it would be more interesting since its something fresh. I considered building them, but then I begin to fear that I would fail.
    Enemy Phase Tactics are easy to plan and in the endgame still very reliable . Only the very first chapters are often not suited for those tactics. Sadly it often feels like a solo run in the late game, just with some assistent units to support Lysithea, or who is doing the dodge tanking.

    Reading all the comments was very inspirational and gave me new interest in the game. I hope that you all are going to have fun again in future runs of Three Houses.

  3. I think we had enough Three Houses winners for a while. I can't estimate exactly how much the "houseshype" will affect the event.
    But I think that Houses will be weakened at this point. Whereby, the ashen wolves are newer than the
    other houses characters, so Hapi could have a chance.
    During CYL5, I will vote primarily for Eirika, maybe a bit for Marth too.

  4. Frey would be my first choice. He has a nice design and is a competent unit. His role as the canon decoy portrays him as very selfelss and brave, something I just have to recognize.

    More obscure are Kempf and Nichol. Kempf has a cool design and became a jewel through a certain translation. Nichol has his design and was fun to use, there is not much reason behind, that I like him.

    I always only really saw that as a way for Edelgard to prevent pissing of farmer now that she knows what will happen if she steps out of line. If she told the truth, many of soldiers would make a move against Agarthans and she cannot afford that. What if they decided to blow up the Imperial capital? Also, Byleth was never like to in this incident


    I already got this, but my problem is that she shows even her commanders no trust and it feels extremely wrong to lie to the ones who may saved your, just to go the easy way. In this way it is also indicated, that she lacks trust into her commanders, so that she believes  that her former classmates aren't able to not see the priority in wiping of the kingdom.
    I am convinced she could persuade them, so that this incident wouldn't be necessary.

  6. As someone who likes Arvis is Edelgard at first a very interesting character, but she has one disturbing flaw in my opinion, she lies too much. In CF is this shown, where she is lying to all of her allies, except Hubert and Byleth. She seems to try to manipulate them and to not care about telling the truth. All of them have proven their loyalty and still she is not honest. This for me pretty bad and a heavy drawback, if she wouldn't be such a liar, she could one of my favorite characters.


    I am talking about the destruction of Arianrhod, Edelgard tells her allies that this was done by the church. She lies to motivate the Black Eagle Strike Force and to prevent a loss of moral, considering it was done by those who slithers in the dark.


  7. This was a hard choice voting category. I had to think carefully by my choice. I was tempted to vote for Kempf, Arvis, Hardin, Rudolf or Mustafa. I decided to wait a while, finally Arvis got my vote. 
    I hope that they will do something odd tomorrow, I have no idea what they are planning. 

  8. This Feh channel was fantastic, 40 summons are very fair for a free 5* unit! Also very interesting are the GHB revivals, I hope that we can get additional copies, if so I can certainly finish my Kempf +10 project. 
    The CYL banner will be a "New Heroes" banner, if I recall correctly, this would mean that we could get 2 free copies of the CYL heroes... I plan to +10 Brave!Lysithea, 2 free copies  would be very nice. I hope they will give us, two copies for free (the classic one and the 40th summon choice) there are certainly many people who are interested in 2 of the CYL winners, they would also benefit from this.
    All in all, was in this channel nothing to cry about, a free 5* unit is always nice and the next special heroes are looking interesting, since shadow dragon was my first Fire Emblem. I hope they will do something funny, like young Jagen or Wendell. The fates banner is a welcomed skip for me, so I can save more orbs (983 Orbs now).

  9. I hope that they announce soon FEW2. FEW2 has potential to be even better than its predecessor, it could get a nice cast with  three houses and take maybe more characters from older games. 
    Characters like Ike, Sigurd and Eirika could be solid choices from older games, of course I hope we get more. With three houses huge success and how beloved its cast is by many people, I think FEW2 will be released in the nearer future. The lords of this game are so surprisingly popular that it would be a waste, to not reuse them in a spin off. In addition are in three houses other very popular characters like Lysithea, or Felix, using them would make the game even more successful.
    So FEW2 would look promising for me and the costs for producing it aren't that high, so it will be released sometime.

  10. I think after all the time, it will be Fates.  My personally choice would be for this banner a Fallen Heroes one, I like the style of these heroes and that it is a mixed banner.
    But I hope that this banner will please the community, so that many Fans finally will get their favourites, after so long wait. I am satisfied with the game, for a long time now, so that I don't need a Fallen Heroes banner, or some sorts.
    As already mentioned, a Tellius one would be a fine choice.

  11. Lysithea will kill my orbs, after Rudolf hunted them. I already left 400 orbs on Rudolf and now are my 600 leftovers in danger. I don't know how many orbs I will safe, when brave Lysithea arrives.
    Lysithea's Hades Ω looks quite interesting, I would love to use special spiral with this tome, or ruptured sky.  
    The other characters are not too interesting, some fodder potential is still given. May we are in luck and the flame emperor will serve as fodder.

  12. Happy birthday, to three houses best girl! I am proud of our proven girl, she did always fine.One time I suddenly let her learn to use sword in my NG maddening, she did well.
    I used her in every run and got all her weapons on S+ yesterday, to honor her. I am looking forward to get her brave version in heroes! 


    Lysithea can do everything, we just have to believe in her. Even Edelgard has to notice this.


  13. I don't get why Lysi and Flayn should be lolis. 
    I saw Flayn as interesting and foremost somehow of an odd way funny, she was something fresh, but not outstanding enough. I think three houses offers a lot of competition, three lords is rough and there are even more characters, that can eventually overshadow Flayn.

    Does Flayn even count as a loli if datamine says she's biologically 17? (In dragon years?)

    I wouldn't count her as a loli. In think the most loli like character in three houses is Bernadetta, but even she is not really fitting this.

    I made Lysithea a Fortress Knight to make her more able to take hits with Pavise and to raise her base defense. Here to report she is a terribad fortress knight, her low hp and defense means the enemy can cut through her like butter and her low strength means she can barley dent anything (on hard).

    Thats why it was unexpected for me, that she was so broken. I rarely saw so far any physical Lysithea that worked, except the one of Chaz Aria LLC. Her strength cap (35) is still enough to work in maddening with the rapier, if she has reached rank S+, which is an affordable task, thanks to her mastermind skill. You can reach with Cichols wyvern co. (+7atk&20% crit) and swordfaire (+5atk), the rapier (+9atk) and the strength (+35 atk) as a falcon knight (+1) 57 atk. As a Swordmaster 62 (class +2 and second swordfaire +5). Her low strength growth rate is not useful and only her high dexterity and solid speed made her useful as a critical hitting dodge tank, was funny to use, but quite useless a the beginning.
    In a class like fortress knight is it even harder to use Lysithea.

  15. I appreciate both games, but for different reasons.
    Fates, foremost conquest is superior in terms of gameplay and this matters more for me.
    I still like three houses, but it is not quite challenging enough for me and the best part of its gameplay was the customization of the units. Fates had also customization, in the form of children. So in this part, it doesn't fall short (still the children weren't healthy for the story).
    The story in three houses was solid, I liked it more than Fates one. 
    The main problem in Fates was that I didn't care for the majority of the cast and the story. In three house are some more characters I care for.
    In the end I think, Fates will despite its weaknesses be the game I enjoyed more, since the gameplay was fantastic.
