  1. All I can say is HOLY SHIT this is impressive I never expected something this possible streamlined to exist for the foreseeable but it's right here and more in depth/more thoughtful than I expected to be possible.
  2. Finally! A thracia run where asbel would be only kinda good!
  3. I’d say Monsters start off interesting and quickly become tiring and formulaic by the end of the game because they run the concept into the ground (barring Crimson Flower which takes a break from them until the last 2 maps) The late late Maddening monsters are basically garbage because they’re so uninteresting to fight and generally have pure asinine latent skills such as -51% miracle proc SS final boss on 4 hp bars (also has vantage) -Wrath Vantage AM final boss asking you to just heavily out stat it. Who also can attack twice on player phase with quite large crit rate By lategame maddening they have multiple HUNDREDS of Health Points bars and its just.... who thought this would be fun...
  4. I for one am appreciative of this new menu translation for bizzare snes fan hacks from what I see looks excellent!
  5. Man I'd love to just vote for my favorites, but I need to make sure Claude gets to be next to Dimitri and Edelgard first
  6. must resist obvious joke Yeah I haven't played anything from Tellius yet, but I've heard so many strong opinions from Radiant Dawn both good and bad I'm excited to try it out when I get around to them! i dont know if i edit something if it will let someone know they've been quoted so i'll double post just this once
  7. Haven't posted on Serenes in awhile but I really really enjoyed that write up about Eirika, I've always liked her a good amount and felt people wrote her off a bit too much so I was glad to see a much closer look taken at her. I mean honestly that's very likely, she holds Lyon on such a pillar even moreso than her brother or anyone else in the story. It's certainly what makes Lyon's downfall so tragic because he did have friends that loved him unconditionally.
  8. Two things: When is it easy to train him? He should be watching Seliph hoard chapter 6 to himself and Chapter 7 should be dedicated to Leif. Also iirc I think Faval can kill Ishtar as base after being recruited so she isn’t really much of a threat. Also Brave Sword Seliph or Ares and his holy weapon are stronk
  9. I think Lewyn!Arthur has like a higher potential but Azel!Arthur just comes with pursuit which is nice and I prefer Lewyn!Ced too.
  10. bruh Sorry that maps sucks, I hope you're not stuck on it too long regardless. For the lord chapter thing, their total levels need to combined to 50 to send you to one map vs another. You can read it all here https://fireemblem.fandom.com/wiki/Four-Fanged_Offense The map is Fog of War and the boss is pretty tricky and moves in HHM, but on the flipside you have to fight the other boss of the other map later on in one of the most frustrating maps in the game/series called Cog of Destiny. Oh god you don't even know the pain of Battle Before Dawn do you? I pray for you, and you should let everyone know how your experience on that map goes. Oh and uh the unit in map with the lesser lord levels is a bad general and the other one is a solid Warrior but eh you don't need the Warrior either. Limited deployment slots mess with HHM's possible fun levels imo. Oh and for recruiting a unit that actually matters, when you get to Pale Flower of Darkness look up how to recruit Harken. You get either Harken or Karel and Karel is bad while Harken has like the best offenses in the game bar one other guy.
  11. Eliwood is an interesting case because he actually promoted into a good unit with a mount in FE7 with the heaven seal, but he's pretty far back at the moment and unless you really wanted to feed him kills or something his stats will be meh. So if you feed him kills and use the first Heaven Seal he'll be find unit. With those offenses in 23, it would be hard to spoon feed him a kill. You are completely fine ignoring them however, but you need to be a bit careful for like a few other maps like the endgame. Edit: Wait this is a first playthrough AND Hector Hard Mode?
  12. Fates: Xander/Laslow+Leo/Odin+Odin/Laslow Are like the best support triangle in Fates imo. Awakening: uhh not serious but I love Owain/M!Morgan, but for actual Supports Henry/Ricken is a great support. I remember liking Cherche/Gaius a large amount where they don't candy or Wyverns is impressive. Chrom and Olivia is great too but you know hidden behind the game if you want their actual S support lol. Tiki & Nah is actually really good too honestly, as long as you get over Tiki lore shennanigans. Lots of parent-child support are great in Awakening, less so in Fates but there's still standouts with the best Ophelia & Soleil support with their fathers.
  13. Basically every FE game has featured what is essentially a god as the final boss of most games outside of few exceptions and it all comes down to execution. Like for instance Fomortiis, once he takes his beast form has literally nothing interesting going for him other than his (albeit pretty cool) design. FE is at it's peak generally when people are having interpersonal conflicts between actual people [Arvis/Lyon/Black Knight] rather than giant imposing figures that have no ounce of rational to them. That's not to say stories can't work with a big final bad doesn't deserve to exist. People can still be manipulated or fall into evil and exploring it is cool, and having an imposing final boss makes more sense for FE because 1v1 personal duals ALWAYS SUCK. Ironically if Fates wasn't.... Fates... CQ!Takumi would be a pretty cool villain as someone who did nothing wrong and is trying to become the hero of his own story and falling into further insanity to try to protect his home. Edit: In fact, I still consider Awakening's Grima in monster form to be a fine antagonist. They're evil, smug, and directly teases&taunts the cast all good stuff for a final antagonist which puts them above a number of other things in the series that are just generically evil. They like already won in the past and are about win again, they deserve to be smug. What's terrible is how absolute dogshit Validar is as an antagonist and human Grima Robin being really weird. Like cool we literally killed the villain in chapter 5 but not really, way to set him up as a large source of conflict and intimidating. Validar stands for nothing, looks inhuman, and is actually our dad and we see him die like 3 times in the game technically while having no real personality traits at all. I'll defend Awakening like the foolish fan I am where it deserves Validar is absolutely among it's largest fuck ups.
  14. It’s certainly something in concept that’s cool but frustrating in exucution. Maybe just removing your Jagen at a certain point (maybe when they’re falling off in use or they’re supposed to clearly be your best unit intentionally) and actually kill them it would be fairly impactful. I think I heard a certain game in the series almost does it but I’m not entirely sure.
  15. Your points for the other games you call mediocre make sense [even if I disagree with most of the games you categorized as such], as I have held the opinion that being truly mediocre is among the worst things you can be as well, but I don't understand why you can't just jump into a game within a series you like and clearly have played a lot of with 9 or 10. I haven't personally played them yet but I want to, 10 in particular seems to tell a unique story for the series in the earlier parts.
