  1. Oh... that makes sense. they recycle the same laguz characters to avoid redoing beast sprites. Thats why they added Lyre (a not very popular character at all as far as I know, I mean, Ive seen people even saying that it wouldnt be a surprise if She NEVER made it to the game) to the NY banner, so they could reuse Lethe's beast sprite again. In this case, we can probably wait for OG Rafiel, OG Lyre soon and OG Kyza soon, I think.
  2. Hi. If I make B!Marianne initiate combat while within 2 spaces of Nifl, will the foe's first atk be reduced by 100% because of Phantom tome(70% reduction on first attack) + Domain of ice (30% red on first attack) ??? Or if a unit with Spurn 3 (that manages to get the 40% damage redution) is within 2 spaces of both Nifl and Flayn, will the damage of the foe's first atk be reduced to 0 too (because of Spurn 3's 40% red, Caduceus staff's 30% and Domain of ice's 30% on the first atk)??? I mean, its never said that the damage reduction doesnt stack but this seems insane. Also I never seen anyone doing this kind of strategy (stacking damage reduction) so idk if its possible.
  3. Well, right. In FE6 it actually would (danm you, broken trone bonuses!), but I still think that in FE7 it would be harder, actually only this wouldnt make that much difference by itself but with the other rule I added that makes the 5 first turns of every chapter be fog of war (I think I should have made it 10 instead of 5 though) it would be pretty bad... Anyway, 5 more that applies to most FEs I think: 1) Your weapon rank bar only raises when you fight with a weapon of your current rank (yeah, raising staff rank to S will be a pain on the ass) and decreases each time you fight with a weapon of a rank that is 2 ranks or more below yours (so if you have A on swords, you can only raise it to S by using A rank swords, while using swords of rank C or lower decreases your rank bar and using B swords do nothing) 2) you only get xp for Kills, never for fighting normally (except staff units cuz duuuh) 3) reinforcements spawn in the beggining of the enemy phase and can attack right after spawning (like in FE6, Im not sure if there are many more FE that do this besides FE6, but this mechanic is pretty shitty) 4) healing always takes HP from the healer (they will lose half of the amount of HP that is healed on the other unit). 5) in games that let you reapair your weapons, each time a weapon is repaired it becomes a little worse (can become heavier, have less might or crit, etc,...)
  4. Oh, Boy. This Will be fun! I have a few for FE6 and FE7. I might update if I come up with something else, have fun: FE6: - Only one pairing can gain support points per map (what? you thought that FE6 was already a bitch for only letting you accumulate 120 support points per chapter? Yeah, now is worse!) - Every boss is a moving boss from Turn 1 - The first 5 turns of every map will always be fog of war. - All enemies get 20 extra crit. including bosses - On each gaiden chapter, the boss is wielding the Legendary weapon you'll get. It spends uses each time they use them and you wont get these uses back after getting the weapons. The sword of seals spends 2 uses instead of 1 if you attack or counterattack at 2 range. and it can't heal or cure negative status anymore. all 1-2 range weapons spend 2 uses to attack at 2 range - Every weapon spends 3 uses for crit (the sword of seals and 1-2 range weapons spend 4 at two range), so rushing Rutger with 60% crit on an enemy group will likely burn whichever weapon he has equipped very quickly - Arena doesnt give you the weapon for free, you gotta spend your own weapons. - Healers can only use the Heal staff for a max of 10 times per map and any other staff can be used a max of 2 times each per map (provided that the staff has at least 2 uses left in the beggining of the map of course, otherwise is obviously less, the durability decreases normally in all staves none of them has the uses restored to 10 or 2 in each map, if you have less than this to spend it will stay like this, its not like FE3H spells that restore to full uses) - You can only use dance/play for a max of 10 Times per map. OR the hability dance/play has a durability that is there all game (probably 30 or 40 uses), once its over your refresher becomes useless (like Fae is once her dragon stone breaks) - Only Roy can kill bosses, otherwise theyre invincible - If Merlinus dies he cant come back and you lose everything he had on him - All your units will have the same HP they had by the end of the last chapter that they participated in, no auto healing between chapters. remember that you cant heal more than 10 Times per map with normal healing staves. - You can only promote at level 20 - You can only promote one unit of each class, for the whole game. If the promoted character dies its your problem because there is only one promotion item of each. (pre promotes dont count) - Each time an assassin procs letality, their own remaining HP is halved (not forever, they can still be healed, but remember that you can only heal 10 Times per chapter with normal healing staves) - Generic dancer and assassin enemies - You cant buy more than 5 things per chapter. and cant sell more than 3 - You cant buy basic weaponry on the Battle Preoarations - No secret shops - Each unit can carry a max of 3 items/weapons instead of 5 - You cant use any status staff on any boss. - In chapter 14 (Arcadia), you must also kill Randy, Maggie and Rose to complete the chapter. And to go the 14x Gaiden chapter, you must pick ar least 4 out of the 8 hidden Treasures (AND kill Randy, Maggie and Rose since this os now one of the requirements to normally clear the map, and of course under 25 turns with Sophia alive or no Gaiden chapter) - To get the real/good ending, in addition to all of the contiditions that you already have, you have to recruit everyone (everyone that is possible to in one playthrough, of course) AND keep them ALL alive. To clear chapters 10A and 11B you must clear them (whichever you got) with all members of Tate's and Klein's squads alive. If one of them die, its instant game Over. - In both chapters 13 and 15, all of Perceval's men must be alive until they end, if any of them die its game Over (you can avoid doing this in chapter 15 if you manage to recruit Perceval on chapter 13) - When any character that wields Magic or staves promotes you have to chose if the unit will wield either magic (the type of Magic depends on the class as before: dark for druids, light for bishops, anima for valkyries and sages) or staves. No promoted mages wielding both staves and magic, only one. So you Will always have to waste at least One deployment spot with a staffbot that cant fight - No stat boosters or stuff like Delphi shield FE7: - Only one pairing can gain support points per map. - Every boss is a moving boss from Turn 1 (including ursula, good luck) - The first 5 turns of every map will always be fog of war - All the enemies get 20 extra crit. including bosses - Every 1-2 range weapon spend 2 uses at 2 range - Every weapon spends 3 uses on each crit (1-2 range weapons spend 4 on 2 range crits) so you'll pray to not crit all the time - Healers can only use the Heal staff for a max of 10 times per map and any other staff can be used a max of 2 times each (provided that the staff has at least 2 uses left in the beggining of the map of course, otherwise is obviously less, the durability decreases normally in all staves none of them has the uses reatored to 10 or 2 in each map, if you have less than this to spend it will stay like this, its not like FE3H spells) - You can only use dance/play for a max of 10 Times per map. OR the hability dance/play has a durability that is there all game (probably 30 or 40 uses), once its over your refresher becomes useless. As a pitty mechanic, Ninian and Nils dont have to share the same durability for dancing/playing (i mean, FE6 is supposed to be harder than FE7 anyway right?) - Whoever dies in Lyn mode stay dead - If you dont do Merlinus Gaiden chapter you dont get Merlinus, ever. - Merlinus uses a deployment slot - If Merlinus dies he cant come back and you lose everything that he had on him - You only get 1 heaven Seal, so either Lyn or Eliwood/Hector (whoever is your non main lord) will remain unpromoted - All your units will have the same HP they had in the end of the last chapter that they participated in, no auto healing between chapters. remember that you cant heal more than 10 Times per map with normal healing staves. - If you manage to get Nils killed before the final chapter, you wont get the extra deployment spot that you get for getting him killed. - Athos cant use dark Magic (yeah, no Athos with Luna) - In the last chapter part 1, all the Morphs are released ar the same time. - When any character that wields Magic or staves promotes you have to chose if the unit will wield either magic (the type of Magic depends on the class as before: dark for druids, light for bishops, anima for valkyries and sages) or staves. No promoted mages wielding both staves and magic, only one. So you Will always have to waste at least One deployment spot with a staffbot that cant fight - You can only promote ar level 20 - You can only promote one unit of each class, for the whole game. If the promotes character dies its your problem because there is only one promotion item of each. (pre promotes dont count) - Marcus dont gain Xp, he loses (is not TOO much per combat though). So the more you use him the worse he gets. He can even unpromote like this - Only the main lord can kill bosses, otherwise theyre invincible - One of Vaida's recruitment conditions is too defeat her in chapter 24(E)/26(H) - Each time an assassin procs letality, their own remaining HP is halved (not forever, they can still be healed, but remember that you can only heal 10 times per map with normal healing staves) - Jerme (the assassin boss) doesnt have a magic sword in neither of the chapters he is in, so he can always proc letality on you (also remember that, like Every Enemy, he has +20% crit chance, plus he has a killind Edge) also remember that he is also a moving boss - Generic dancer and assassin enemies - You cant buy more than 5 things per map and cant sell more than 3 (including on the Battle Preparations chapter) - No secret shops - Each unit can carry a max of 3 items/weapons - You dont get a second Rapier/WolfBeil - You cant use any status staff on any boss, including on Nergal's Morphs - You can only unlock a Gaiden chapter if you completed the previous one (except that you dont have to complete chapter 19xx on Eliwood's mode since it doesnt exist there, but you'll have to kill Kishuna at least once to play the future Gaiden chapters) - On chapter 16x, you have to kill Fargus. so you might rather just not play the future Gaiden chapters since you probably wont be able to do this - On chapter 26E/28H (Battle before dawn) you also have to kill Ursula before the end of the 15 turns. - On the Gaiden chapter 26xE/28xH (night of farewells) you must kill Sonia with Nino otherwise game Over. - On chapter 16E/17H you must keep all of Caelin's soldiers alive, if any of them die is game Over - no stat boosters or stuff like Delphi shield for now thats it. 馃檪
  5. Are Bruno and Veronica apprehensive about Embla's queen? Where is this said? I never noticed!(or dont remember, if ir was longo ago like in book I) For me it looked like the queen cared about Veronica because Letizia says that She ordered to arrest Veronica for now until they can prove her innocence or something like this (which made me think that She belived that her daughter wouldn't steal the tome and also cared to reassure her that she wasnt fucked up and that she would only be arrested temporarily until they prove that she didnt do anything, instead of just making Letizia arrest her and not saying that it was just for now or anything else, also Letizia didnt say that the queen was pissed/disapointed/anything even being such a grave situation so for me it sounded like she must have had compassion for Veronica at least, you know it seemed like she only ordered to arrest Veronica because She had to, so no one would think that She was conspiring with her daughter), sure I could be reading along the lines too much here, maybe she just doesnt HATE Veronica and is being sympathetic towards her situation now because she knows it happens in Embla (I mean... She was married to the dude that dos it), but is generally a cold and/or scary mother, who knows. Actually She really doesnt sound like an awesome mother at all, we know that she let Veronica lonely indeed, I always assumed that it was because she was a busy queen or something like this but now thinking about it, it wouldnt have cost anything to get Veronica some random retainers so she wouldnt be so alone (well, I suppose that Bruno had the power to do this too, maybe having FE7/FE Fates/etc like retainers isnt a thing in Embla... until Xander who is from Fates himself decided to do this by staying with Veronica?) but this just makes the Queen look like an ausent mother (which ok, is pretty bad already) not exactly a terrifying one, I dont recall Veronica or Bruno being afraid of her or anything. Im probably missing something important on this though.
  6. Yeah, it was a rather smart move (pretty obvious for us, the players, but the askrans really didnt have any way to know, specially since Veronica told them that Letizia was a trusted friend). I found it pretty funny that Letizia was talking about the stolen tome while her sprite has been holding it the whole time (obviously is as if she wasnt, but in the second she said "someone stole a forbbiden tome" I was like "Oh... so thats her own tome, right? is she revealing herself as evil that soon?" and Im glad she did, Letizia was so obviously evil that there was really no reason to hold the facade any longer). Yeah! I think that we'll go into the dark blobs too, eventually and probably Embla Will be there waiting for us. I really hope that this book isnt resolved with another random MacGuffin cause it got old a a LONG time ago (it probably will be thought, maybe a MacGuffin that can undo the Embla blood curse for good?) Also, it seems like we have an answer/conclusion for last months' speculation, Veronica's mother really is the one rulling Embla, so I think that Letizia's next step will be trying to take her down too now that Veronica is out of her way (Oh Boy, now I want to see Veronica's Mother... She will probably be one of those OCs that only get seasonals if we actually get to see her though...) RIGHT???? I Saw that she had 31 spd w/ Life n Death 4 and I could just think "why?!" She could give some use to that extra 5 Def/Res, actually She could have even more with Fury 4, at the cost of only 3 atk and useless spd. She could have a (41/39/26/33/25) stat spread, that is a little more respectable, for me it seems like Veronica needs her defenses more than her crappy spd nowadays (maybe her spd was considered average back when the game launched, idk, but now ir sure isnt)
  7. Oh! That makes sense actually, tnx for sharing! I remember reading in SailorMoon wiki once that The autor(I dont remember her name..) once said that Haruka (in case youre not familiar with sailor moon, Haruka is a lesbian and a very masculine woman, Even mistook wIth a boy sometimes because of her appearence and the way she acts) "has the heart of a man" while she just states that Haruka's girlfriend Michiru (obviously also a lesbian since she has a gf) Is "more girlish" (And she is indeed), so maybe this whole "heart of a woman/man" thing only applies to when a character is both homossexual and acts like a person of the opposite sex normally does rather than just being homossexual?(maybe this is where they cant differentiate sex and gender, because I cant see anyone saying that Michiru looks like a man in any way even knowing that she is lesbian, maybe gender for japanese people is more about the way you dress, talk, act, express yourself,... rather than what you indentify yourself as? so saying "has the heart of man/woman" might simply mean that someone of the opposite sex is boyish/girlish, as far as I could understand) At first I was confused with this thing because (aside from this example I gave from SailorMoon wiki, that I had forgotten until shortly ago) the only place that I heard this expression was on One Piece, when Kikunojo says that she is trans (saying something like "I am a man at a woman's heart") so it made me associate this with being trans and when I saw the expression being used about Kyza I got pretty confused (specially since he was just officially confirmed as non binary instead of a trans woman). So the expression probably applies to trans people too, but I also think that in Kyza's case that might not have been the intention (i mean, i think that he was suposed to be an effeminate gay dude like Leon too), but sure, if anyone thinks that that is the case I also think that it isnt actually wrong to say, its ambiguous enough I guess. it would be pretty cool if in a future Tellius reboot we had issues about LGBT+ people too instead of just racism (since its a game where prejudice is major theme anyway and nowadays is acceptable to deal with prejudice against the LGBT+ comunity in children games(not that FE is only for children of course) as opposed as before where this kind ting was usually censored), like we have Heather and Kyza already, letting us see them dealing with their struggles a little would be good.
  8. Wouldnt it be pretty good to use Close reversal with Near save, because then She Will be good to counterattack both beasts (with her OG weapon) and dragons (with a dragon Slayer weapon) even when using save (and in these cases will have even more Res/Def to deal with them)? Or it isnt that good on practice as it sounds?
  9. Oh, tnx. Blue is by far the worst color here for me, all the others are pretty decent.
  10. Did you add those +5 for every stat but HP for Tibarn (those that Jotari said he has in the last 3 RD final maps)? Will he have these 5 extra points to every stat here, @Jotari? Because it can play a decisive role in this final round I think. I mean, If both Claude and Tibarn were 1 point shy of doubling Dimitri it means that they have the same AS, right? So with 5+ points, Tibarn would be able to double Claude.
  11. So I was checking Kyza's page on FE wiki and got pretty confused. Ok, now they are confirmed as non binary, but before their debut in FEH what was the deal? It is said in their trivia that the Fire Emblem 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia section on Kyza is titled "The body is male, the heart is female?", so (before Heroes) was Kyza a trans woman that for some reason (probably mostly because prejudice, and for being a soldier) couldn't publicly assume her identity as a woman but in front of her close firends? Or he was just a gay guy that avoided to act flamboyant in front of others to not raise suspicion/to be taken more seriously, and the FE 20th Anniversry Enciclopedia wanted to find a way to say "He is a dude that acts in a effeminate way" so they came up with the way more rude and confusing alternative "The body is male, the heart is female" (as if saying that because you're act like a women you're basically one yourself)?
  12. YES!!! N贸tt shows a leg, as I was expecting! And the way Dagr uses her kimono is so badass!!!(the way she just doesnt use one of the sleeves reminds me of Gintoki from Gintama, except that she does it to show her muscled arm 馃檪 ), unfortunately I think I could have liked their art more, is not bad of course, but I think that I would have liked it better if it was drawn by someone else (I really like their outfits/designs though) idk why, I like Cuboon's art (like in Summer Byleth and Rhea, Maid Kagero, etc) but for some reason I don't think that their art style fitted N贸t and Dagr that much, of course that this is just a matter of personal taste, I don't think that the quality of the art was low nor that its bad or anything, just that I would like it better if it was drawn by someone else. But what REALLY impressed me was Fafnir's art. ITS GORGEOUS! His outfit is stunning and the artstyle is amazing!!! Its just.. absolutely perfect!!! Really, thats honestly one of the best arts in the WHOLE GAME as for now (I really like the way that Niji Hayashi draws men, they are always so gorgeous, he drew Soiree Eldigan, Ninja Navarre and Resplandescent Raven, but this Fafnir art just managed to beat all of them for me). Really, I can't explain how much I love his outfit, the colors used in it, the details, EVERYTHING. Ok, to be honest, the banner is not really as good as I was expecting. I'm probably not even gonna use my orbs here (I thought that N贸tt+Dagr would be SO OP, sad that is not as much as I was expecting), not that the units here are bad, but I don't really NEED anyone. Definively going to free pull for Fafnir though, just because of that absolutely staggering art. I HAVE TOO. Where can I see this? (and is his normal attack art there too?)
  13. Hi, double posting because I was answering someone, now I'm doing a question so I thought it would be better organized like this. So in this HoF I'm going to pick P!Flora as the forma unit (yeah, I'm gonna use the free forma soul on her, now seem like a great time to do this) and I was thinking what would be the better weapon to give her. I mean, no matter what I choose she will still have her OG weapon and skills right?(just to confirm, before I do anything stupid) I was thinking between: Cloud Maiougi+/Dragonslasher+ (they're basically the same thing...), Splashy bucket+, Kitty paddle+, and maybe CourtlyMask+. I think that Kitty paddle's low might is pretty bad but having a mage slayer weapon is awesome in an unit that is already so suitable to kill mages, do you think that the low might does not compensate the eff against mages? and what about the others that I said(the dragon slayer weapons), would they be better than a mage slaying weapon, cuz I'm thinking about giving her Ruptured Sky (since her OG weapon is already a Beast slayer)? Also, If I manage to get her Close Counter, is it better to give her Near Save or Far Save? I dont want to get notifications of all of the posts in this thread because its too much, so if you're gonna answer me please quote my post or tag/mention me. Tnx 馃檪
  14. Yeah its pretty easy, do what XRay and Othin said. And if you dont have too many good units, you can borrow from your friend list. Also, never forget to do the final blow in the final castle with the type of unit required to get the bonus, and if you happen to be winning to fast then avoid giving the last blow on the enemy's castle for some rounds so you can manage to kill 20 foes for the bonus points. I also nnever play arena assault but if you're that desperate to get refine stones then try to play at least once a season, even if you dont manage to beat the 7 maps you might be between the top 300.000 players and get 10 refine stones a week. And play normal arena, always, you just have to win 5 maps in a row, its not as hard as it looks. this will give you 10 extra refine stones a week. I used to stop after the 4th rewarrd (the orb) but oh boy... never do that, its a big mistake, because after some time you can get a big amount of refine stones like this. when you manage to get a ton of refine stones, go refine the worst weapons available (even if you dont use them), you know, the ones that cost refine stones not divine dew, because refining them will give you divine dew (you get exactly the same amount of divine dew as the amount of refine stones you spent). you probably know thisalready, but worth noting anyway Also I think that you can get refine stones as quest rewards too? And also in the summoner duels you can get a crapton of divine dew if you didnt already get that reward. Good luck
  15. So... yeah, thats Lyre. Look at her ears, look at her hair! Its a very distinct hairtyle to NOT be her. Now the guy... I obviously don't deny the idea of him being Fafnir, but as @Acacia Sgt and @Mercakete said, it cooould be someone else, its not really rare to see guys with this slicked back hair in FE. First thing that came to my mind was Hardin but I think that the guy in the silhouette is slimmer so probably not, it could also be Reinhardt too (as Acacia Sgt said), and theres probably some others that fit this silhouette. Idk, I guess I'll stick with Fafnir for now though, because we will have characters from Heroes and Radiant Dawn and probably some random from Fates (likely from Hoshido) will be there too right? So if the guy was say, Reinhardt, we would have characters from 4 games in this NY banner? I don't think so. Or we won't have any character from Fates this year? Anyway, I think that almost everyone agrees that Reggin, N贸tt and Dagr will be there so... thats it I guess: Reggin, N贸tt, Dagr (probably N贸tt+Dagr duo), Lyre, probably Fafnir and... I don't remember if it is 1 or 2 more units lol, but they will probably be from Fates (and if not, then other RD laguz) Also, which scandal happened with Alfonse's and Ranulf's VA? And did he like just retreated (and probably will stay out until the scandal is forgotten) or he actually called it quits forever? If he quit then he will likely be replaced, I don't think that Alfonse will stop getting alts and voiced clips just because of this (also maybe thats why Book V's ending clip was just Eitri talking, maybe IS is waiting for the guy to come back soon so they didn't want to give Alfonse another VA yet?) One more thing, Im so SO happy that we will finally have NY N贸tt and Dagr, as I said in other threads, I've been waiting for them the whole year!!! (and I saved orbs for them this month!). I usually find the "sexy kimono" thing pretty obinoxious (like with NY!Camilla and NY!Plumeria) since the characters will look cool anyway (or rather, cooler) if they use them normally (and also cuz it looks like they're trying too hard to force fanservice where is less natural to put it than in say, a beach banner, I also usually dislike fanservice in stuff like christmas banners for the same reason, ITS WINTER, WHY WOULD THEY SHOW THAT MUCH SKIN? Do they want some part of their bodies to necrose or what????), but I have to admit that I'll be kinda disapointed if N贸tt doesn't show her legs (at least one!), she is allowed (Idk how will Dagr show off her abs in a kimono though, maybe its too much to ask). EDIT: @Etrurian emperor Idk, I think that Beast Laguz might be the new "thing" of NY banners? Like, before it was Hoshido characters (since it was even said that the NY festival was a Hoshido tradition), but now they might be running out of popular options from Hoshido to put in the NY banner (idk how many more popular characters from hoshido are there, never played fates) or they just got tired of doing this every year (since everyone got that the festival is from Hoshido already), so last year they did Hoshido for the last time with Kaden and Selkie + other beast Laguz, as some kind of "transition", like, they might stop with Hoshido but the beast laguz will stay as the "New new year thing" until they run out of options/get tired again, then we will have something else (like, maybe just laguz in general, or whatever else they want to, besides the OCs). Of course, I might be wrong and we might have another character from Hoshido again this year, that was just a guess.
