So I've finally decided to request some pairing advice, and as much as I'd like to ask "Ross, the Fire Emblem Expert" for help (I would link to his "guide", but I don't want to drive up his PageRank), I'm not actually interested in gimping all the kids. Anyways, this is what I've got so far: The pairings set in stone are: Chrom x Olivia Avatar x Lucina Cherche x Gregor (this is for personal preference much more than optimizing) I think the way it's gonna go is probably Nowi x Donnel, Lissa x Kellam, and Panne x Fred. Mostly, I just don't know if Owain would rather have Sol and Armsthrift (for infinite Missiletainns, because swordhand) or Luna. Virion can continue philandering without incurring the wrath of his wife (although he'll probably incur the wrath of plenty of husbands). I'm fine with criticism of the other pairings, but I probably won't change anything without a really compelling reason.
I don't own Awakening yet but do plan on picking it up eventually. I planned some setups and pairings for the characters I plan to use to tackle the harder DLC, including not only Apotheosis but also Death's Embrace, Roster Rescue, etc. Since I have multiple possible setups for some characters, I put them in spoiler tags for easier reading. The pairings: Chrom x Sumia Lissa x Henry Sully x Donnel Miriel x Gregor Mariabelle x Ricken Panne x Fredrick Cordelia x Stahl Nowi x Gaius Tjarka x Avatar Olivia x Virion Cherche x Vaike The Sets: [spoiler=Lucina] Tank Set Class:Paladin Limit Breaker Pavise Aegis Galeforce Rightful King Attacking Set Class: Dark Flier Limit Breaker Tomefaire Galeforce Aether Rightful King [spoiler=Cynthia] Unorthodox Set Class: Bow Knight Limit Breaker Galeforce Dual Guard+ Luna Bowfaire Pure Offense Set Class: Dark Flier Limit Breaker Tomefaire Galeforce Aether Luna Gurerilla Set Class: Sniper Limit Breaker Bowfaire Dual Guard+ Luna Galeforce [spoiler=Owain] Default Set Class: Dark Knight Galeforce Aggressor Tomefaire Lifetaker Limit Breaker [spoiler=Kjelle] Flexible Tank Set Class: Hero Galeforce Swordfaire Armsthrift Luna (swap for Sol in non-Apotheosis DLC) Limit Breaker [spoiler=Brady] Default Set Class: Sage Galeforce Tomefaire Aggressor Dual Guard+ Limit Breaker [spoiler=Severa] Physical Set Class: Assassin Galeforce Vantage Armsthrift Astra Limit Breaker Nosfertank Severa Class: Sorceror Galeforce Armsthrift Vantage Vengeance Limit Breaker [spoiler=Nah] Default Tank Set Class: Manakete Galeforce Sol Vantage Deliverer Limit Breaker [spoiler=Inigo] Default Set Class: Assassin Galeforce Swordfaire Astra Vantage Limit Breaker Secondary Attack Set Class: Berserker Galeforce Axefaire Astra (Sol on non-Apotheosis maps) Aggressor Limit Breaker Guerilla Set Class: Sniper Galeforce Aggressor Bowfaire Astra Limit Breaker [spoiler=Yarne] Physical Support Set Class: Berserker Axefaire Aggressor Dual Guard+ Luna Limit Breaker Mobile Support Set Class: Griffon Rider Deliverer Dual Guard+ Luna Aggressor Limit Breaker [spoiler=Laurent] Nosfertank Set Class: Sorceror Armsthrift Vantage Tomefaire Vengeance Limit Breaker [spoiler=Gerome] Support Set Class: Berserker Axefaire Aggressor Pass Deliverer Limit Breaker [spoiler=Noire] Nosfertank Set Galeforce Armsthrift Vengeance Luna Limit Breaker [spoiler=Morgan] Attack Set Galeforce Armsthrift Ignis Luna Limit Breaker [spoiler=Chrom] Support Set Class: Bow Knight Bowfaire Dual Strike+ Dual Guard+ Aggressor Limit Breaker [spoiler=Avatar] Staffbot Class: Sage Tomefaire All Stats +2 Magic +2 Sol Limit Breaker [spoiler=Sumia] Versatile Set Class: Dark Flier Galeforce Luna Dual Guard+ Iote's Shield Limit Breaker [spoiler=Cordelia] Default Set Galeforce Lancefaire Armsthrift Sol Limit Breaker [spoiler=Olivia] Default Set Class: Dancer Galeforce Special Dance Pass Swordfaire Limit Breaker [spoiler=Gregor] The Scout Class: Assassin Vantage Swordfaire Astra Armsthrift Limit Breaker The Heavy Class: Berserker Aggressor Axefaire Armsthrift Astra Limit Breaker [spoiler=Legion] Rallybot Class: Berserker Dual Support+ Rally Strength Rally Spectrum Rally Defense Limit Breaker [spoiler=Spotpass!Katarina] Rallybot Class: Trickster Galeforce Rally Speed Rally Spectrum Rally Heart Limit Breaker I think if I'm not playing for Apotheosis, I'll remove Limit Breaker from everyone and replace it with a different skill. This should allow for more interesting sets. Thoughts? Any pairings I should swap around or nix? Any sets that should be used or edited? Give me your input.
So, in most 'optimal' pairings I saw, there's at least one children doomed to be a Sorc. With this set-up, I wanted to prove that it's possible to make an 'optimal' pairing without anyone turning into a Sorc. Opinions may differ, but I used what most people consider as good pairings. Chrom/Olivia - Arguably the best pairing(besides the 'implied canon' Chrom/Sumia), this opts for offensive kids, with Vantage, Galeforce, and Luna from both parents. Also, with this, Inigo could get Rightful King. Although just 10% but bigger proc chance = more procs. Lissa/MaMU - I always think magical Owain is a bit weird(especially with him talking about his sword hand and such), so I wanted him to be a physical unit despite the -2 Str mod. MU is the only character who could make a viable physical Owain without wasting a dad which is better left to someone else. Sully/Vaike - Some people have been talking about Vaike or Donny being Sully's best bet. Although Donny gives Galeforce, Armsthrift, and an actually decent mods for his kid, but I think Vaike is better since Galeforce isn't needed for tanking. Also, Kjelle still have access to Sol and Armsthrift. Miriel/Ricken - This is arguably the best pairing for Laurent as a Sage(since no Sorc involved). +6 magic and access to Luna is pretty devastating. Sadly he lacks Galeforce to boot, but he could get Dual Guard+ and Dual Support+ from both parents, making him a support Sage. Sumia/Henry - This pairing is the best if you want to make Cynthia a Dark Flier. Sumia already provides the skills(Luna, Tomefaire, Galeforce, Renewal), and her -2 Str mod leaves her(and thus, her kid) better as Dark Flier, so safe to say this pairing is mod-only pairing(although Henry gives Lifetaker too). Maribelle/Lon'qu - Lon'qu allows Brady to be a speedy Sage, with the expense of his defense. He also gets Vantage, and since less defense = more damage, Vantage will proc more often. Also, the fact that Brady is pretty hard to mess up also makes this pairing pretty good. Panne/Gregor - Arguably the best pairing for Yarne, since most people turn him into a Berserker because Taguel sucks. With Gregor as his dad, he could get access to Vantage, Sol, Armsthrift, and Axefaire. He could also utilize VVW combo using the Vengeance axe as well. Cordelia/Stahl - For Severa, it's either Lon'qu or Stahl. Usually people pick Stahl since he makes her the best Hero. He also gives Vantage, Luna, and Aegis. Lon'qu is the speedy alternative for her, and still gives Vantage, though no Cav access means no Luna and Aegis, and he's given to Maribelle. Nowi/Donny - With Donny as her parent, Nah will have access to Galeforce, Armsthrift and Sol. Even with the not-too-stellar mods she will turn out fine. Also, with Donny as her dad she will hit exactly 50 Luck, which allows you to abuse Dragonstone+ as much as you like. Tharja/Gaius - This pairing is arguably the best for Sniper Noire. Donny is a viable choice too, however Donny gives Armsthrift, but Gaius has better mods, and still have Galeforce. Also, Tharja gives Pavise and Luna, which are pretty good skills too. Cherche/Frederick - Fred could give PavGis and Luna for Gerome, with the expense of him being pretty slow. Also, he's the other kid who doesn't have Galeforce, but can be a support unit with Dual Support+ and Dual Guard+ from both parents. I could say he's the physical variant of Laurent but slower. This is the best pairing I could thought so far. I could work with FeMU too but it'll be a bit harder. I could shuffle some pairings for it though.
I have the MU on my Normal Mode/Newcomer file as a Grandmaster with a focus on magic. (Has tomefaire, tomebreaker, +2 All Stats, +10 avoid and Ignis. Now, my Hard Mode/Classic MU has only just started out. He is also focused on magic, with high speed as well. So... My question: What should I do with my Hard Mode MU? Who should I pair him with? Thanks.
