  1. For those who've heard of GenocIke... I present to you... GenocIke and Ryoma! In this story of sorts, Ryoma has gone insane from too many Conquest timelines and being forced to kill himself over and over again. Then he finds the infamous GenocIke... The story so far: Panels 1-9: Panels 10-21: Panels 22 - 30 (Mild Blood Warning): Panels 31 - 40 (Mild Gore Warning): Panels 41-50: Also, not only will I regularly update this with more of Ryoma's maddness, but I shall also allow you to make suggestions of any panels you want to add. Just tell me: 1. The character(s) you want in the panel. 2. What they say 3. The expression when they say it (optional) 4. Location (optional) 5. Optional things that are happening (i.e. someone being stabbed) and I can get it done using little more than the conversation generator and Paint.net.
  2. In C.S. Lewis' a Horse and His Boy, by some funny twist of fate, the main character, Shasta is revealed to be none other than Prince Corin, the lost heir to the throne of the kingdom of Archenland who was kidnapped as a baby (Sounds awfully familiar?) prophesied to save his Kingdom from a disaster (Also sounds familiar), neighboring kingdom of Narnia. Ignore the fact that the spelling is of Corrin is slightly different and suddenly... a new path in Fire Emblem Fates opens up with Corrin saying, screw the plot of this game, I want to go to a magical land with talking animals and magical creatures and a better written plot! New Units become unlocked Aslan-He would undoubtably be a Gotoh. Peter- (Would this guy be anything but a Hero with that crazy sword of his?) Edmumd- Master of Arms (He doesn't have any real distinguished weapon in story but demonstrates a lot of profiency in combat) Lucy- Troubadour (Promotes to Maid because in-story she has a dagger) Susan-Archer (Her signature weapon is a bow afterall) Twin Brother Cor- I mean he's an identical twin so... Aravis-Bride (She is stuck in an arranged marriage in story) Lasaraleen-Minor character with a memorable personality but since she is shown to clearly not be cut out for combat... Shrine Maiden?) Bree and Hwin (Talking horses totally add a whole new layer to combat don't you think?) When lions roar, a child drifts ashore. A scorned lover declares unjust war. Ride away to be set free from life of slavery! Sing with me a song of fantastic beasts and magic and delicious feasts (No seriously the number of times meals are described in meticulous and mouthwatering detail in this book warrents this lyric) Coherent engaging plot with consistent tone Lost in thoughts all alone. Will you side with Archenland/Narnia?
  3. Now here me out on this one guys! I acknowledge that Camilla is Haar: Conquest Edition, but Elise has potential to be on her level overall in terms of utility. I’ve been replaying Conquest recently and found myself thinking that Cam and Elise are comparable in terms of power level; albeit that they fulfill two entirely different roles, they are both overwhelmingly the best at them and are both available for most of the Conquest route. What do you guys think?
  4. Note: Feel free to move this topic if it’s in a bad place. Sometimes, (mostly in the newer games) you read a support conversation and think, “that was bad.” Whether it’s a P/C that doesn’t take the Non-Determinate parent into account enough, an S-Support that comes off as awkward or loveless *cough*FredrickxCordelia*cough*, or just a support that had incredible potential, but eschews interesting character development for the purposes of being “funny.” Well, as an aspiring author who has been thinking about these supports for a while, now, I thought I’d take a stab at being better than IntSys. List: (Requests accepted) Henry and Noire P/C C-A Corrin and Camilla C-A Hinata and Oboro S
  5. As a part of an upcoming story rewrite patch a friend and I decided that one of the issues that needs to be fixed is the map. So he made a political map that a kind person from the 3dsFE hacking discord made into a patchable file. To instal, simply make a file in romfs named field and remove the -1 from the patch file's name. hope you all enjoy!

  6. Hey, this is Azure. I came here on behalf of those working on Fire Emblem Fates 2: Electric Boogaloo. It’s basically a redoing of Fate’s story on all three paths. As well as monster encounters (basically make it to where everything isn’t just Faceless). While we may not need it now, we will eventually need an artist to make some custom portraits in the Kozaki artstyle for characters without portraits that need to be added into the game, new enemies, etc., if they have the time. Here is the link to the original thread: Have @SandstormSaber send you an invite. Thank you.
  7. So, I plan on making some written works here, and I decided to make his so you can understand who I have paired up with who. All of these stories will take place in the same universe... sort of. Basically, in this universe, there are: -2 separate Awakening timelines -2 separate Fates: Revelation timelines -1 Smash World that brings them together. This accommodates for each Corrin and Robin of each gender. Before we get to the pairings, a few notes in the spoiler below. Anyways, the pairings: Awakening: Robin timeline Awakening: Reflet Timeline Fates Revelation: Corrin timeline Fates Revelation: Kamui timeline If there are any thoughts and concerns about the details here, let me know.
  8. I've been digging through GBATemp and Serenes for awhile trying to get answers, I can't seem to find any. I am using FEFEditor and its built in FEFNightmare4, following the tutorial on editing character AIDS. I've been attempting to open ROM3.lz, only to have it open to nothing. Options in the file show that the file is open, but nothing shows up. I am running Java 8 Update 201 and running roms on Citra. Any Advice is welcome. EDIT: I'm able to open modules with the program, but I am still not able to open ROM3.lz.
  9. I am currently having trouble with installing the english translation for fire emblem if, I have all the necessary items for it, however when I start the process it stops working immediately, and yes I have Custom firmware. thank you and all help will be greatly appreciated.
  10. Fire Emblem Fates: Upgraded, the way Fire Emblem Fates is meant to be played. About this hack: What this hack plans to do is change a lot of things in the game to balance it better, make the game harder, fix the story, and fix many inconsistencies with the localization, so you could call this Fire Emblem Fates Deluxe, or Fire Emblem Fates Definitive, I intend for it to have a feel like that, some of the changes are: Katanas give avoid and effective speed but have lower strength. Most Nohrian weapons are given more might and a little less accuracy. Bows were given more accuracy, and might. Silver weapons no longer debuff after use. Daggers have a new small edit. The Yato gives some stat bonuses. Weapons like the Kodachi can now follow up! But weapons like the Spear cannot. Most Birthright Boss’ weapon placements are changed. Some boss themes are moved around. Xander and Ryoma can now have a special theme for their final fight in Birthright and Conquest! (Information at the Questions and Answers section, and link is in the downloads section) Xander has been buffed at his final fight in Birthright, as well as a new gameplay change was added for it (Lunatic and Hard Mode only). All Birthright bosses have been buffed. The Siegfried and Raijinto have been differentiated more. The Fujin Yumi and Brynhildr give a very small bonus. Birthright, Revelation, and Hero Battle enemy stats are now decreased slightly on Hard mode and greatly on Normal mode. Many translation errors, like Setsuna’s personal skill, Nyx’s death quote, Hinata’s death quote, Oboro’s death quote etc. are fixed. Changes the unit creation screen Boon and Bane text to be like Awakenings. Changed the main lord’s death theme. (Information on how to change it back is at the Questions and Answers section, Question 6.) Most Vallites are buffed, on Lunatic and Hard mode. All Invasions are edited. Added Scaling to the Hero battles plus change 14! Lilith now has Dragon Ward as a personal skill! As a result of change 1 and 5 the Yatos changes are much more varied. Xander has a new description. Ryoma does too. So much more... It also plans to add in plenty of new supports as well as audio in supports, chapters, paralogues, and perhaps some characters, as well as use some of Team IFs translation text to change the games text to properly express the characters different feelings and make different supports clearer, this hack also plans to add recruitment methods for characters in the Birthright path (such as Sakura being able to recruit Hinoka), and mothers being able to recruit the children characters, this hack also plans to add a few custom DLCs, as well as add Hoshidan and Nohrian Festival of Bonds and a new Apotheosis called “True Apotheosis”… yes I know that’s a lot, maybe I should go ahead and call this Fire Emblem Fates Ultimate. (Everything in the hack is bound to change, and is in no way affiliated with Nintendo or Intelligent Systems.) Previous version: .4827 Current version: .4848Rev5 Hack Status: Stalled Be sure to take a look at the screenshots. The change log, and logo are present in the links below, if you enjoy the hack be sure to follow me to stay up to date with the latest releases of Fates Upgraded, and give it a like. Also feel free to comment, ask questions, make suggestions and whatever else, but most questions can be answered by reading the change log, or the Questions and Answers section, thank you and enjoy! Hack progress: I split the hack currently into two version, the Faithful version, and the Upgraded version: The Faithful version: The version that is currently being worked on, is a version that does lots of edits but doesn’t change the game too much. The Upgrade version: The version that changes a lot about the game, to make it more varied and enjoyable, such as every chapters goal in Birthright not being Sieze, Rout, or Kill Boss. Faithful Birthright Edits: Complete Faithful Birthright My Castle Invasion edits: Complete Faithful Birthright Paralogue Edits: Complete Faithful Conquest Edits: Chapters: 25, 27, EG done. (I don’t think I’ll be doing anymore edits to it.) Faithful Conquest My Castle Invasion edits: Complete Faithful Conquest Paralogue Edits: Complete Faithful Revelation Path Edits: Chapters 6-15 are done. Faithful Revelation My Castle Invasion Edits: Complete Faithful Revelation Paralogue Edits: Complete Upgrade Birthright Path: Not in production… Upgrade Conquest Path: Not in production… Upgrade Revelation Path: Not in production… DLCs: Not in production… Items and Descriptions Editing: Complete (Until further notice.) Support editing: Not in production… Script editing: Not in production… Recruitment Methods: Not in production… NOTE: Though this hack is made for the US versions of the games, you might be able to use them with any regions files with a bit of work. Screenshots: There are too many screenshots to display so click on the link here and choose which ones you' d like to see. For Version .4825 Very few screenshots are outdated: http://www.mediafire.com/folder/w14wsf1xec0s8/Version_.4825 For Version .4848: http://www.mediafire.com/folder/7ny099s8efoq3/Version_.4848 Downloads: Fates Upgraded Change log version .4848Rev5 link with Notepad ++ text colors: https://www.mediafire.com/file/b6uhc32n113uymt/Fates_Upgraded_Version_0.4848Rev5_Changelog.rar/file Fates Upgraded Special Iron15 and new song link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/15i1nzookc41u61/SpecialIron15AndNewSong.rar/file Fates Upgraded Faithful Edition Version .4848Rev5 for the Birthright game link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ja2zb8pwkd9obf6/FatesUpgradedFaithfulBirthrightGameVersion.4848Rev5.rar/file Fates Upgraded Faithful Edition Version .4848Rev5 for the Conquest game link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/hqw6skteulcr13j/FatesUpgradedFaithfulConquestGameVersion.4848Rev5.rar/file Fates Upgraded Faithful Edition Version .4848Rev5 for the Special Edition game link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/2imgl9p379psng7/FatesUpgradedFaithfulSpecialEditionGameVersion.4848Rev5.rar/file Special thanks and credits to: God (Yahweh, for always leading and encouraging me), SerenesForest (for the use of this site to publish the hack), GBATemp (for the use of that site to publish the hack), FEUniverse (for the use of that site to publish the hack), Thane98, DeathChaos, Merrill lianne, Geodude, and everyone else that helped out. Again, thank you all! ☺️ Questions and Answers: Question 1: How do I even load the hack!? Answer: You will need to use a file patcher, like the LayeredFS in Luma CFW, if you haven’t installed Luma yet here is a link to all the information for it: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/wiki Question 2: How do I open the .rar file? Answer: You can use WinRAR for that (even after the trial period you can keep using it for free). Question 3: Why isn’t the new theme for Ryoma and Xander already loaded in the hack? Answer: EDIT: The theme sounds good, but the Iron 15 file is really large and could take up too much room on a SD card so I left it out of the hack, but it can be put in and used in the game, instructions are around the bottom of the Changelog. Question 4: Why don’t I see any changes in Birthright? I’m playing on hard mode. Answer: EDIT: This is a problem on version .4792, but with the release of .4825 this problem should be fixed. Question 5: You composed the theme for Xander and Ryoma yourself? Answer: No. It was taken from another game and added to Fates Upgraded same with the main lord’s death theme. Question 6: How do I add the changed main lord death theme? Answer: 1. In the hack files either: FatesUpgradedFatesBirthrightGame.rar, FatesUpgradedFatesConquestGame.rar, or FatesUpgradedFatesSpecialEditionGame.rar 2. Go in the "LumaLayeredFS" hack folder of the game hack (eg. FEFatesBirthrightFatesUpgradedLumaLayeredFSFiles) navigate to and then enter the folder "stream" in the folder "Sound", once inside delete REMOVETHISMESSAGETOADDIT from the filename "sys_gameover_E1.dspadpcmREMOVETHISMESSAGETOADDIT.bcstm" and you're done. Question 7: Is this hack compatible with Gay Fates? Answer: I’m not sure, but I don’t think so, it would probably require some effort to make the hack work with it, whether it’ll take little or a lot again I don’t know. Question 8: How do I revert the changed chapter names? Answer: 1. In the hack files: FatesUpgradedFatesBirthrightGame.rar, FatesUpgradedFatesConquestGame.rar, or FatesUpgradedFatesSpecialEditionGame.rar 2. Go in the "LumaLayeredFS" hack folder of the game hack (eg. FEFatesBirthrightFatesUpgradedLumaLayeredFSFiles) 3. Navigate to and then enter the folder "@E" in the folder "m", once inside delete or what I recommend, rename the file "GameData.bin.lz" to something else and rename "GameDataWITHVANILLACHAPTERNAMES.bin.lz" to "GameData.bin.lz" and you're done.

  11. Hello everyone! I've been lurking here for a long time, (maybe 4 or 5 years?) I think this account has been just sitting up and collecting dust for a while, I finally got some time for an introduction: I'm Fates Blade, a hacker who's currently working on some projects, with the most interesting one for now probably being Fire Emblem Fates: Upgraded which I plan to post on this forum, that's about it. Thank you all.
  12. Just as it says on the tin. Weekly, I will prompt discussion of a certain pair and their supports (whether or not they are of the same gender). Whether you like the pairing, what details there are that possibly change things, etc. If SoV is wanted, I will change this up. I’ll give my thoughts on a pairing later on in the week, after reading up on the support myself. First one up is a favorite of mine, Robin (M) x Tiki in Awakening. Edit: Now note that we will talk about one person from now on each week. As of this writing, that is Male Robin.
  13. This will be big. I'm sure you can tell that. This will be a giant PMU of Fates, where I try to use every unit in the game once in a PMU. I have the first one going on currently, and that is where we shall start. I will use this post to make quick summaries about each part of each run, as well as where you can vote for other members of later PMU's. So, let's see where this goes, shall we? First Run Here is a link to the place to vote if need be: Anyways, tomorrow, it's time to start the first episode, where we obtain Rhajat and get closer to finishing.
  14. This was an idea I had recently, were I try to do enough PMU's to have used every single Fates unit at least once. The first of these has been going on, but has been but on hold due to needing rescue staffs for Shiro when my only sources of them were Lottery or Skirmishes. But anyways, this will be about deciding on the units for the other PMU's (and a change for the first PMU). Obviously, there will be rules. And here they are: And to see who can be chosen, here is a google sheet showing the spaces left for each PMU as well as the units left to be chosen: Currently looking for 8 Gen 1 units and 2 Gen 2 units for the second PMU, as well as M!Kana's class. Here is a link to the main LP:
  15. During a recent replay of Conquest I noticed a familiar line from King Garon in chapter 14 after corrin had quelled to rebellion in Cheve... Garon: When I heard that your group destroyed Cheve, I couldn't have been prouder. Rebellions are like seeds. One must salt the earth before they sprout. There is a moment with similar context in the end of part 2 of Radiant Dawn with this exchange of lines Both of these actions are morally grey, and both involve eradicating a group of people to establish order and control over each said kingdom, the main difference between these events is the light each game portrays the event in. Now I'm not here just to bash Corrin and fates story because those are two very dead horses but I wanted to discuss what ways this scene could of had a better impact. After reading the script of the event in both games the purpose of the Fates version is to establish how evil and merciless Garon is compared to Corrin, and how confused and disgusted he is with Garon's method of ruling. This is further assisted by the game beforehand showing Hans enjoying the job far to much and with the annoyingly transparent dialogue from Garon immediately after the quote. It went something along the lines of "I heard you enjoyed watching the light fade from their eyes" and how such an act was "very befitting of Nohr royalty" and all that junk. While in contrast Queen Elincia's event showed her making a grey decision, she was willing to make that choice despite the involvement of killing her countrymen because she was up to task of ruling and had already displayed the ability to make those hard decisions before, like when she sacrificed Lucia and didn't release Ludveck (of course the greil mercs save her anyway). Both of those events were good for her character because despite her being a good person who hates violence and abhors death she was able to make decisions that went against what she wants. Garon on the other hand doesn't have that luxury... Given what decisions he has already made and enforced in this game up to this point telling Corrin to kill his rebelling countrymen is no surprise at all, and even with that being a thing there is still a lot of ways this scene could of been better handled. I for one don't mind Corrin's bases as a character, my only complaint is that all opposing views are treated as either wrong or just plain evil, if this scene was handled as way to show Corrin a different point of view and show the flaws in his ideals, the game would of benefited immensely from it, giving corrin the option to accept of deny that decision while either seeing his own way thinking being to flawed to continue, or to accept the flaws in his ideals and keep striving for them regardless. The tldr of this is that Elincia made an interesting decision, one that contrasted with her character, while Garon under the same context made a forgettable one. One situation is morally grey, while the other is black and white. So my last question is how would scenes differ in Fates if it were handled in the grey area rather than black and white. What scenes would have a different impact?
  16. I was considering running either a Dark mage, master ninja, mechanist, paladin, archer, cavalier, dread fighter or one of the knight(?) classes. I really have no idea; first file was a priestess with magic boon and luck or skill bane, it was decent as a support. For ref; female Corrin here!
  17. Back when fates first released, I was super excited to hear that wifi battles were finally making a return from Shadow Dragon. They might be a bit janky, but I love this kind of stuff. Well, one thing turned to another, and I didn't really get a chance to try it out. Now that the game's been out a few years (and presumably the meta has settled), I'm really curious to hear what's really considered meta. Stuff like team compositions, skill builds, weapons, all that juicy stuff. For that matter, is online really a thriving thing at this point? I'm kinda surprised not to see much discussion on it.
  18. Hi guys. I need some help with some Fire Emblem Fates pairings. I'll be playing on Revelations and what I want to get is the most "optimal" pairings for each child unit in the game. I'm aware that there seems to be a bit more of a compromise with pairings that you have to make in this game as compared to in Awakening. That being said, I do want to give Velouria, Shigure & Soleil the best inheritances they can have, and then I don't really mind with the rest of the units settling for whatever there is as a 'second-best'.
  19. Hey guys, Here's what's been done so far: - dumped the installed CIA as a .CXI using GodMode9 - extracted gamedata.bin.lz from .CXI file by mounting it as an Image - tried to paste edited gamedata.bin.lz within the currently installed title (mounted as image) - met with error saying I cannot paste files in a virtual game path I'm trying to edit the classes and characters using Nightmare and FEFeditor but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  20. Out of all of the personal skills in Fates the one I found the most difficult to activate is Selena's Fierce Rival. Just the idea of following up a critical hit with a critical hit sounds like an overkill. Did anyone got it to work?
  21. Which of the secondary Weapon Triangles would you like to see more of in future titles?
  22. Hi! I am not sure if this is just me, but I seriously find that upgrading and interacting with the home instance in Fire Emblem: Fates - Birthright feels like a chore. I recall that even in my very first playthrough, towards the end, I stopped bothering to upgrade and harvest resources, let alone eventually interact with anything in the instance. Don't get me wrong, I adore the support conversations in all Fire Emblem games which feature it, as well as other niches, such as off-plot instances, but in Birthright, it really seems too tedious to click on each building and take your time to make decisions on what to do next. I think that the main reason why I fail to have the motivation to interact with the instance is simply that it is not necessary on Normal/Hard difficulty playthroughs. Let me know your thoughts. This is just my opinion, I am sure that others adore the progression and watching it grow maybe? Please note that the poll is only including Birthright on Hard or lower difficulties (therefore excluding Lunatic). Furthermore, necessities such as the shops and your house for relationship growth, I do use! These aren't part of the poll in my opinion. Have a nice day :)
  23. Basically what happens when the likes of Mortis Ghost and Claude Higgins get their hands on Fire Emblem Fates. So this is a fangame, done in RPG Maker XP, so it will not have the same mechanics as Fire Emblem Fates. In fact, it will have very similar mechanics to OFF by Mortis Ghost (along with its own fangames, including UNKNOWN). But it is based off Fire Emblem Fates and pretty well 99% of the content is Fire Emblem Fates, even if portrayed differently (e.g. not the official resources). Okay so what happens is there is a Revelation timeline, created over a Conquest timeline but then Conquest tries to take over (hence the creepypasta-esque name Conquest.exe) and a huge struggle ensues. Like UNKNOWN, there will be multiple endings, based on the player's actions and the methods to get them will be secret (meaning the game itself won't give you hints, you'll have to find out for yourself or ask others how to get all the endings). It's going to be incredibly dark and stuff. It centres around the Avatar and her (headcanon) married family - Ryoma, Kana and Shiro and their determination to keep the timeline stable and protect it from characters from the Conquest timeline (but of course the other characters from the Rev. timeline will be assisting). Then along comes a Puppeteer... The Puppeteer decides to help the Rev!Characters out (if you don't want to help them out, then don't play at all, it's that simple) but evil ensues. So yeah, take care out there, my friends, and- YXZvaWQgc2VwcHVrdQ==
  24. Hi, Today I'm sharing my thoughts on Fates' exp system and why I hate it. Sure, avoiding your overlevelled units to take a level by killing 3-5 units is good because it forces you to use more units than Avatar+1 and roflstomp with a 10 levels lead on ennemies (especially after promotion). But FE Fates is a game, and we want to play the way we like. If we want to play with 2 units, why would you keep us from getting levels while the ennemies are scaling faster than our own units? Promoted units' exp gains are simply awful, and prepromotes like MILFkinshi can barely level up without taking out the prepromote ennemies (which can also kill her easy if you play hard or lunatic birthright since MILF is so squishy OMG) while you could want to feed these kills to your overlevelled non promoted units (because it's the only way to give them exp outside boo camp DLC) or to lower levelled units to give them 80+ % of their exp bar in order to catch up to the higher level units in your army and not stay dead weight. Meanwhile, staff users have less preferable classes and growths but they can level up from 1 unpromoted to 20/20 in no time by spamming heal on each other then finish the ennemies in 1 hit. What's the goal of making half-assed exp nerfs? I'm forced to use this or that unit as a staff bot if I want anyone to reach said skill level to grab it and enjoy my build. Otherwise, I can wait all the game before reaching the level I have to reach to grab one skill, not even talking of level 15 promoted skills (what's the point of keeping them if close to no one will get them in no grind playthroughs, and close to no one even in grindfest playthroughs? Getting 1 exp per kill is really trash way to nerf powerlevelling, it's just annoying and keeps you away from ever using prepromotes as more than strategic units for a few chapters). Weak prepromotes should have better exp gains than 20/1 units (by a large margin since most of them have lower stats on top of lower exp gain) and I don't see why MILF has so low base stats with shit exp rate while LOLRyoma and ScarLOL have like +20 to their base stats not even including HP alongside better growth rates AND better class (wyvern gives good bases/growths, swordmaster is good and Ryoma makes this class absolutely gamebreaking with his bases and his OP AF personal weapon, meanwhile MILF has to play with the same exp gains, shit bases and a class only viable for her joining chapter with many flyers to kill and awful map design making flyers much needed for rout). I don't know why Gunter has the same exp growth as unpromoted level 10 units while MILF has level 20/1 exp gain or close to it. It's disrespectful for such an original unit (Kinshi is an original class and she would be very useful if only she had stats and the class itself wasn't garbage in terms of stat bases/growths, being worse than Onmyoji, Sorcerer and other non-hybrid classes accessible from the same class as hybrid classes, with some differences of 8+ base stats between hybrid and non-hybrid). So yeah, Fates exp system forces you to use only the units who can reach certain thresholds before being limited to -5 exp per kill, like doubling a certain unit or OHKO this unit. The prepromoted are hit or miss, wit everything not royal or prepromoted wyverns being trash (and even Leo is not good in his base class and needs boosts to be of any use meanwhile Camilla comes earlier and recks everything for a while at base). Using non-optimal units like Subaki, Setsuna, dark mage!Odin, DK!Leo without stat boosters etc. is heavily punished because they won't reach the necessary thresholds for beating said units in said chapters and will make these chapters a real pain to deal with. If they could just gain 1 or 2 more levels they would maybe reach these thresholds alongside having other nice features (like Subaki's skill or Setsuna's speed) but they won't because the game cuts your exp gain with a chainsaw level after level until you barely gain any exp per kill. Meanwhile your staff users reach 20/20 before anyone reaches level 8 promoted. Without even trying, just spamming staves as you would've done in GBA FEs. Healers became no brain exp scaling bags while fighting units took a severe nerf. Sakura/Azama as a Priestess/Mountain priest outscale your whole army so fast excet maybe LOLRyoma an staff user avatar that it's not even funny, they just go frontline with 10 more levels than your highest availability fighters and blow everything up just with E-D weapons without stat penalties (especially Sakura and Azama who're really good scaling units). TO SUM UP, FE healers have always been slower to level up before Fates and you would promote them to get weapon access so they could contribute a little by softening an ennemy here and there for your fighters to destroy them, but in Fates they gain so much exp from the beginning to the end (because they only have to be close or under the target's level to gain massive exp from each heal) that they will simply reach OP stats before your fighters even promote. Healers are often my 1st units to reach level 20 before promotion, thus using the early master seals and completely destroying ennemies faster than light while completely benching my other units, just healing each other in the middle of the ennemies while Azama counterkills everyone with bronze naginata in no time. They don't even need a support bag, they just outscale everything for the whole game just by healing, meanwhile your fighters sit on the side because they can't compete statwise nor skillwise nor utility-wise.
  25. I finally got Conquest after so, so long, and there's something I'm really curious about: if I have someone in a class that has a certain weapon rank and it's maxed out, then I reclass them in a class whose max weapon rank with the weapon is lower than in the previous class, can that character still use weapons with a higher rank than the new class's rank cap? (ex: If I promote Nyx into a Sorcerer and work up her Tome rank to S, then reclass her into a Dark Knight (whose Tome rank is A), can I still use Excalibur on her as a Dark Knight?). I really need to know, this is gonna affect how I plan out my promotions.
