  1. I'm currently Doing Fates Custom Bond unit challenge run. The only hack I use is the bond unit apperance and class creation tool, rest of gameplays stays as normal though the whole run. Anyone is welcome to join regardless of whether you have game or not, this is open request. Anyone is welcome to request your custom bond unit stats for my playthrough: * Your MU name, class, skill, apperance, and stats for my custom bond unit only playthrough. * For anyone wants their specific hair style and apperance, use this customizer as reference to comment down below. * You can freely choose any MU's hair color you want including colors that are not avalible ingame. If you want to have custom color, here is a website for the hex color code and please type the hex code down in comments. * Any accessories outside of customizer they want for their MU are optional to have, please type down the item you want. Here are the rules: * Unplayable class (except Minerva's Pegasus Knight) and enemy exclusive item are not allowed. * No swimwear and Japan exclusive accessories such as pumpkin head are not allowed for their decoration. * One person can only have 1 bond skill, Due to the limitation, MU's genders are restricted through bond skill, thus the personal skill you are choosing is also your gender's choice. Here are the lists of gender and bond skill Custom Bond unit Submission Example: Name: Neo Boon/Bane: +spd -luck Class (Advance): Paladin Personal Skill: Sol Hair Color Hex: #61453F Accessories (Optional): Flower Braids Apperance (Optional): Face 3, Hair 6, Hair Clip 3, Facial Feature None
  2. Hi, I've felt like Fates dumps everything on skills instead of stats and for me that's part of what makes its' gameplay so annoying. Either you have an awesome class with good skills or you have a class with bad skills and all you can do is get out ASAP otherwise you're making the game harder on yourself (like oni skills are quite niche, have very little utility, and even though I used it often in RD, I feel like the movement-related skills like shove are not really useful in this one, maybe because all I can put on the frontlines is the bulkiest units since everyone dies in 2 hits except them, which means I don't really need to move people around and shelter is there if needed). So I've thought of trying to play the game with absolutely no skills (sadly it's impossible to get rid of personal skills, so 0 skills outside personals since we can't do anything about them...). If anyone is interested in this, don't hesitate to post here your thoughts about it (is it funny? challenging? does it change several units' viability? I already think of archers who are simply mediocre without quick draw and Setsuna would greatly suffer from that for sure). Also, do you find it funnier with- or without skills? I'm gonna try it in BR, I don't think it would be funny at all in CQ where it's already annoying with skills. *RANT AHEAD DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW MY THOUGHTS ABOUT DEBUFFS, THE GENERAL DIRECTION OF THE FE FRANCHISE SINCE 3DS AND MY BROKEN 3DS: Ennemies spamming poison strike, seal def/spd and steel shurikens is really unfun (for me at least), I'd rather give ninjas and myrmidons a little more damage and delete seals and stat debuffs if I were allowed to. On paper it was a good idea...in game it's awful when your Effie who's supposed to be a tank shows single digit def because of a gimmick they added like "hahaha that's so funny to have no defense left in a game where ennemies hit like trucks, have 3-10x more units deloyed than you each chapter and don't even hit your unit if they can't damage it, making the only real tanks in the game nearly useless just because we could do it! hahaha have fun with this troll game!"... Please kill Intelligent systems and replace them with actual humans. And then we have ennemies with freeze, entrap and hex rods... Yeah, fire Intelligent systems, please... they're complete trolls... I don't even want to play 3H with the directions taken in the 3DS games and the whole Hogwarts bullshit. If I want that I go play Harry Potter and that's it. On top of that it means I don't have to buy the Switch, since my 3DS broke in half and the screen can separate from the main part at any moment if I don't hold it tight (FML), which means I'll have to buy a New 3ds to also be able to play Xenoblade...cash cow, here you are! END OF RANT* So, I really want to play like the old days before everyone had 2-6 skills and before you had to check every ennemy skill and your own to calculate how much damage you'd take, and forget to count attack stance ennemies, their skills and you don't even know who they will attack with...yeah, this game went too far for me, tooooooooooooo faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar, so faaaaaaaaaar that I usually take a strong champion from another castle and spam gold DLC to buy the skill build I want to use as much as I can. I'm probably bad at this game, but I don't want to play in normal mode, it is so much easier that some chapters feel like a Pet Shop game.
  3. Hi, TL;DR at the bottom if you don't want to read the whole thing including my personal experience with the challenge and my opinion on the route split + the choice deriving from there. Yesterday I started a Fire Emblem TSS playthrough with ONLY steel weapons/D-rank tomes and staves. Currently at ch7, so far the beginning was chaotic, since Seth is the only one with a steel weapon and the rank to even use it until ch2, where the *#@! armory doesn't sell steel weapons during the chapter (while it sells them on the global map THAT'S ANNOYING I was 2 uses away from not being able to complete this at all due to steels having 30 uses and chapter 2 being a rout map, BTW it's "rout", not "route", that is used to call a decimation objective, "route" is the way you go). After ch2 was completed, I could finally sell all of trash weapons and my heal staff to buy 3 steels to Garcia who soloed ch3-4 and 40% of ch5 until Vanessa visited the south-eastern, the western and the north-western villages, baiting the bandits away from Garcia who didn't have any elixir left to heal and finally visited the armory to send steel lances and swords to the supply. After that Gilliam caught up to and left Garcia collecting dust even with less level ups since Garcia's speed is barely better than Gilliam by level 10-20 and Garcia's def is a joke when Gilliam basically doubles it by level 10-12 and only gets better from there, on top of having 0 speed penalty with steel, which makes him about as fast as Garcia in a few level ups. Franz is unusable, don't bother with him, really, he'll never double with anything other than steel sword and he can't even use them before promo since he starts with a useless E rank in swords. With a steel lance, he can't hit shit and gets a 4 speed penalty. y stat screwed Kyle reached 11 str, 10 spd/def around level 10/11 so he can at least be a passable Duessel light with +1 con to wield steel swords without a penalty and only -1 speed with steel lances after promo. Vanessa...how to say it, well, until wyvern lord promo, instead of having mediocre accuracy with iron and inexistant damage, she has Franz-level accuracy and -8 speed with steel, so it's like she starts with Gilliam's speed only she has 8 points more in it so she will cap at 12 effective speed after you/I manage to feed her exp while she's really hot garbage (I already have trouble feeding her kills before ch4 in a normal playthrough sine it's axe land with an archer in each one, but here she's a liability more than anything else, for real, 17 HP 6 def 3 speed is 3 HP less than Franz with the same speed, it's unusable). Ephraim while being stuck at 7/8 def around lv 10 has at least 14/15spd to double with steel, which is the best I can hope from a non promoted unit since GBA weight/con system is hot garb (while it may seem logical, it only makes light units a liability since everything above E rank ways them down and lowers massively their generally only tank stat, which is speed for dodge). So, my combat units (that I of course recommend) are Seth, Garcia since he's the only unit usable from chapter 3 to 5 and a half (thanks IS for this hot garbage that are early game shops, selling slims instead of steel while slim deals no damage and the crit is highly unneeded since most units would deal more with iron or steel without needing to rely on 8% crit chance, and of course the only staves I can buy at this point are torches because ch5 shop doesn't even sell the D rank healing staff, and D tomes are impossible to get at all before like chapter 9 Eirika's route or 10 Ephraim's route so mages are perfectly unusable), Gilliam (#2 after Seth, as I guessed before playing), Vanessa is level 3 and didn't gain a single point of speed so she won't ever fight again, useless unit only good to travel through the map without doing anything out of it except visiting villages. Kyle will soon replace Gilliam as the #2 unit, while Joshua is equal to Garcia since he's faster but takes less of a beating in return for having more chances of killing. Once Moulder promotes into a sage he'll use that juicy Inferno tome in Eirika's route. Why people say Ephraim's route is harder is beyong me, Duessel nearly solos the phantom ship, trained Ephraim is better than Seth unless Seth is already level 14+ which is unlikekly since if you don't feed him every ennemy on each map he should be lower level, I typically feed him the dodgy ennemies or the ones that are annoying to deal with like the cavaliers on the top-side of ch6 and the Halberd looting fighter for Garcia's contribution later on, still these 3 units are all you need with a pure water per guy to tank the eyeballs, and actually Ephraim!Cormag is garbage until ch12 because ch11 has FoW and mixed magic/phyical damage so he's dying very fast with his garbage speed and shaky con because wyverns have lower con than they should, male wyvern lords having paladin con and male wyvern knights having even less which is ridiculous for dragon riding classes. Really, Ephraim's route is Seth, Ephraim and chosen cavalier storming every map unless you impose yourself a challenge, the only hard to beat map is 14 but still if you're not into full completion of treasures/recruitment then it's actually easie than Eirika's route, since Duessel basically solos the rest of the game at base with a speedwing or 2 to double without the Garm. On Eirika's route side objectives like getting the 2 villages in ch9 for the 2nd rapier, the dragonshield and the angelic robe bonus, recruiting Marisa without killing Gerik in ch10 (screw sleep staff spammer seriously, may he burn in Hell for a million years over and over) on top of that this chapter has falcon knight+pegasi 5 women formation with a few wielding steel lances to deal actual damage and a stealable talisman that requires you to go out of your way to level up Colm until he has at least 15 speed and can survive 2 hits from steel lance pegasi/the falcon knight and a ruby to steal to the myrmidon near the boss, a ranger with a steel bow who can one shoot Vanessa/Tana I guess unless she's very trained but even then she would die to anything coming at her if she takes a hit from that ranger, namely the pegasi with steel lances who can get her even in the mountains. Ch11 is easier than phantom ship but is annoying due to the map split, ch12 is filler, ch13 sends you a LOT of ennemies all at once a la Awakening, many of which are cavaliers, has 2 or 3 ballistas that you need to seize before you get poked from everywhere and can't use any flier at all, Aias is way harder to beat than LOLSelena who dies to any cavalier effective weaponry, while Aias has HP and def and packs a punch (pure waters give 7 res and you get several for free from the beginning of the game, so magic ennemies are mostly useless for anyone with 5/6 res and enough luck to not eat a bolting/thunder crit). Also Ephraim's route can promote 2 heroes while Eirika's can only promote one until chapter 14, which means one less promoted unit to play with, it's far more restricting since knight crests are also very restricted with the second being held by Aias himself so not usable before the end of ch13, you are fighting with Seth, Gerik or Garcia or Joshua and one paladin/Gilliam until ch14. Ch14 is also very annoying as unlike Ephraim's, it's a maze where you don't see the stats/formation of the ennemies before you open the door, which is very tricky especially when the bottom-left room has a knight guarding 4 or 5 shamans, so you need a really tanky unit to survive that or you have to disarm the facing unit and kill the knight after the ennemy turn and then clear the shamans. All in all I think Ephraim's route is much more reliant on stats while Eirika's relies on strats. And Duessel is RNG-proof, while Innes and Saleh don't have such an insanely easy ennemy phase (Duessel literally takes 1 pure water, 1 elixir/potion and 3 hand axes and solos the game from ch 11 onwards with 0 investment and berserk doesn't hurt him much since he doesn't have eight move to come at your team and kill it like Seth would). So I chose Eirika's route, because it's less of a slugfest and there are more monsters for my steel party to kill (on top of that, I can let Eirika rot on someone's horse so she'll never be able to cause me a Game Over, while Ephraim would be wasted if he was left to collect dust, and Ephraim's route ch 15 is very easy to screw up with Eirika's starting position and her inexistant stats to survive wyverns), and Innes and Saleh will see use as the first useful archer at base and the first mage who has instant access to D rank weapons at a time he can actually buy them. I'll certainly feed a robe and a dragonshield to Saleh so he can be as good as Franz on EP. Saleh is like the only unit that can use a 1-2 range weapons with stats that make it useful without grinding if you can't use E-ranks at all like in this challenge. Syrene will be useful with a steel sword and a pure water to hunt magic users and doesn't need anything other than her base stats and pure water to take negative damage from any unpromoted magic ennemy, she could maybe even take out the Fimbulvetr sage with a pure water, but I'm not sure, I don't have his stats and Fimbulvetr's damage in mind. Of course the fina boss will be killed with legendary weapons since it's impossible otherwise without luck (pierce activation) and Shine with slayer doesn't even scratch him unless it's capped magic but no one will have capped magic as a bishop in a grindless playthrough. That's it, I gave the challenge and my choices/advice. TL;DR: Never use anything (edit) OTHER (end of edit) than steel weapons, D-rank staves and D-rank tomes except for the final boss, good luck. Gilliam will save your ass, try not to overlook him for once, since Franz and Vanessa are useless with steel lances only available from chapter 5 onwards and steel swords requirind D rank Franz doesn't even have at base. Basically both have Gilliam's speed, but neihter of them has HP or defense to take hits and even less to take double attacks. The only things Vanessa can last hit/OHKO are Mogalls and soldiers/mercenaries. Everything else she should stay far away from. Don't bother raising your pegasi. Kyle is the only worthy cavalier as a steel locked unit.
  4. Good night! Tonight I want to suggest a challenge on FE 8: TSS. The concept is this: make the route split real. In hard mode no grind of course. Rules: 1. Ephraim route will never use any unit from Eirika's route past chapter 8. Not even Colm. I suggest you keep your keys for Ephraim's chapter 9 otherwise you will miss the ocean seal worth 5k gold which will be your only item worth gold for quite some time if I recall correctly. 2. Not only units : Eirika's inventory is Eirika only and every item in the supply gotten before chapter 8 will be discarded and every unit prior to chapter 8 outside Eirika and Kyle/Forde will be killed before the route split (you can kill Colm after it for convenience). 3. The only exception to rule 2. is ch7 knight crest, which is given to either of Ephraim's guards before ch9 (ideally after the route split and before entering the first route exclusive chapter) so that you have a Seth-like Jagen and a normal cavalier. 4. You can and should raise both cavs in ch5x (because it's more convenient for ch9 and 10 and also because the next point is quite restrictive). 5. Your chosen prepromote: Kyle: he must have a speed inferior to 13 before promotion and be level 1 promoted for ch9. The goal is to have a mini-Duessel with 8 movement. Forde: he must not be able to ORKO ch9/10 units (at least the mercenaries) after promotion. He must also be level 1 promoted for ch9. None can get any exp as a paladin before ch9. Forde will be a mini-Seth but he will certainly struggle doubling or ORKOing for the whole game, thus I suggest that Kyle is the one early promoting since being mini-Duessel for what's left of the game is better than being inferior to both Seth and Titania. At least with lv 20 stats he can remain useful for the whole game. 6. If you want to make the route split even more real, you must also kill Innes and Saleh when they come back, bye bye to their inventories too. Eirika will have to find her path alone to Ephraim unless you can send someone from Ephraim's group to help her. 7. To continue on the same settings, I suggest you kill Gerik and Tethys without taking their inventories. They're more Eirika's underlings by being Innes' mercenaries than they are Ephraim's. 8. Dozla, L'Arachel, Ewan, Marisa, Cormag, Duessel, Tana, Amelia, Rennac, Myrrh, Knoll and Syrene are all usable, either because they're route neutral (Marisa is an ennemy anyway, Amelia too, Ewan recruits Marisa, he's also your only mage besides promoted L'Arachel, Rennac is an ennemy recruited by L'Arachel, Myrrh is glued to Ephraim and Knoll is purely coming from Ephraim's route since he comes from Grado's prison, Cormag comes in Gerik's place in Ephraim's route with the same settings and Syrene comes post reunion so she's allowed on both routes, and L'Arachel is recruited in the same conditions in both routes). 9. Eirika can use the ch5 skill tome and dragonshield, otherwise she's useless in the last chapter. She has to be used only in the Endgame (promote her before the final chapter). The other chapters she has to be benched (except ch8 where she must clear her entry room by herself and can help for the last parts of the chapter, if you're short on ch5x potions and elixirs, since Ephraim and his guys are forbidden to use the supply and Eirika's inventory). She also must be the only unit to take kills in her team before the route split. It is a good way to make her at least playable in the Endgame, and with so few decent units you'll need all the fighting force you can get. For Eirika's route: 1. Choose between pre-route split group and post-route split. If you choose pre-route split, Seth is forbidden. If you choose post-route split, he's the only unit who can be used alongside Eirika, Tana and Amelia in ch9. You can even choose to kill him after Innes' group has joined, since you don't need a Jagen anymore, Gerik is OP and Eirika's route doesn't need to rush before Rennac's recruitment. If you use Seth, he must have base speed before chapter 9. Good luck getting both villages for the angelic robe! 2. No unit from Ephraim's route is allowed (Cormag, Duessel, Knoll, Myrrh are forbidden) and if you consider Tana to be Ephraim's wife before Eirika's friend, then she can only be used for ch9 village rescue. If you play with pre-route split units of course none of ch9 onward units are playable, including Tana (you'll need to ferry Eirika to Innes in that case, which is harder than talking to Innes with Tana). 3. Any pre-route split unit used must be at the same level Ephraim's group would be if you chose Ephraim's route, and Gilliam or Franz must be Jagenized with the same rule as Kyle (well, Gilliam must be at 13 def max before promotion since it implies 15 def after promo which is already overkill for Eirika's route, but honestly pre-promoting Gilliam is 100% better than Franz, at least Gilliam will be useful without doubling everyone while Franz would be trash). 4. Same rule for inventory and supply, same restrictions as Ephraim's route, Eirika only once your units are on equal level with Ephraim's group in the Ephraim's route scenario. It's like Eirika is your Jagen XD. Pre-route split units are forbidden to use pre-route split stat boosters or to carry anything other than their initial inventory into ch9 onwards. 5. Forde and Kyle must be killed once you've completed ch5x, manage Ephraim's inventory wisely! He will carry it to the Endgame with the Solar Seal and Siegmund! If anything seems vague, you can ask me or suggest your complements to these rules. Have...fun? LoL.
  5. Hi, I think it would be interesting to tier female units in Conquest for a females only run. The rules are the same as usual (not based on LTC, more on efficiency, the role they play, are they needed, strongly recommended, how they contribute to make the game easier), except here it's a little special: no servant (no Felicia abuse) and no Corrin (Corrin will be male and only be pair up bot in defensive pair up as soon as posible, when Effie arrives for example). Pair up should be reduced to the minimum (outside Corrin who has to hide on someone's back, the rest should be used as independent units most of the time. Attack stance is allowed since ennemies already abuse it to the point where it's purely disgusting with their seal def/steel shuriken attack stance shenanigans. Kana is the only allowed child and will be discussed as well in this list. Let's put 3 lists: 1 with reclassing/DLC classes authorized and the other where only the main class tree is allowed. MU can reclass freely since his usefulness entirely depends on the stats he gives to his partner. Kana will be the only one to be discussed in the 3rd list, and won't be tiered with other females since she depends on her mother and inheritance to be anything (though you must also specify if you reclass her or let her in her original class). Don't forget to specify Kana's recruitment time (since she will be different if you get her at a time you can kid seal her or during the beginning chapters). This would help players who go for such challenge to immediately identify good units, units they should train until a certain point before ditching them and units who they should avoid. Units who will be tiered: Camilla, Effie, Elise, Peri, Selena, Beruka, Nyx, Charlotte, Flora (Kana in the exclusive Kana tier list as stated above). Mozu is excluded since she appears in every route like the servants, Silas and Kaze and has been discussed thousands times already. Many units will be tiered very differently between reclass allowed tier list and no reclass I suppose. How I guess the tiers will look like: S- Necessary A- Very helpful B- Can be used since you've got room anyway C- Use it if you really want to, but it's like shooting yourself in the foot Let's go!
  6. Fire Emblem Awakening might not be played as much anymore but I made a challenge just for fun. Rules: You must get and use the characters from the wireless. Example- Pick sacred stones, and battle Erika. •you can’t decide what the game( Mystery of the Emblem, Gaiden, etc.) but it’s randomized so roll a dice or ask Siri ( pick a number from 1 to) • You can only pick the character you want from wireless once the whole Runthrough •The Robin HAS to be either Alfonse or Sharena and must look like them( pick warrior if Alfonse, Lance unit if Sharena) • you can use Anna, Chrom, Lucina, and your Robin,you can also pick 1 unit from the story to marry chrom and get their child. • When you complete one battle in the Wireless ( let’s say Erika) you then do the one above. Keep repeating till you finish. • you can do it in any game mode you want but it must be in Classic. Im also interested in other challenges that you guys got for the Ds games so you can share them 🙂
  7. If you change Corrins class to feral dragon the is it possible to beat revelation with that class only?
  8. Hi, I wanted to talk about challenge runs, but any of them in any FE game. I had the idea of GBA/3DS FE without using supply and trading only during the chapters (no battle prep trading), maybe even no armory in battle preps (completely skip prep), maybe no supports along that (I never really used supports in FE and never needed them so far before FE 13 and the pair up mechanic showed up, only to buff Colm/Neimi and sometimes Eirika, most of the time I didn't even click "support"). I think a run with the weakest available (repairable/buyable) weapons would be funny depending on the game (well that's basically how I play FE8 most of the time ^^ with iron, fire, light and flux except for endgame bosses with high def/res and hp who hit like a crashing plane in your face with 120-150 accuracy ouch). Swapping roles (physical units with magic and magical weapons, magical unit with physical weapons). No mobility (playing with 4 movement on everyone like you have an army of knights). No 1-2 range weapon (or use it like you use a 1 range or 2 range, no javelin/throwing axe ennemy phase army). Swords/Bows/Magic only run (Laguz/shapeshifters only run with only the necessary non shapeshifter stuff like Ike to defeat Burger King's terrible plan to raise obesity in the whole world, and you play some Amazonian tribe resisting the empire of Burger King and its' fat church leaders wth their panther transformation XD). Only the less accurate weapons run. Devil axe run (might need to hack an unbreakable devil axe though). This would be a hardcore Nuzlock challenge. Only poison weapons. Only effective weapons. Only the lowest level units available, maintain an average level (lol you can't even promote then). Only lowest speed/luck/strength/def/res/mag/hp...units. (funny to see a team of Arthur-like units get (nuz)locked out of the PT by a random crit: "Hi Knoll how's it goin'?" "Got crit killed by the first ennemy I fought, I should have instantly promoted to summoner and spam summons till I hit 20..." "Sad story bro, see you in the next PMU since no one plays you without farming"). Your ideas?
  9. Hello! I am doing a spin on a challenge made by MercuryHg34. I can only use characters that can use tomes(besides chrom). Can you tell me who can use(also through master or second seal) can use tomes, and what child parents can give their children tomes. Thanx > ::::)
  10. Hi, As much as we say Conquest lacks bows, the fact is that every 1st gen unit can get a bow class (some only after promotion but still) without using Corrin at all. SO, I'm immediately getting to the point: Let's play a full bow wielding party! Rules: 1. No Boo Camp unless it's really too hard. 2. No stat-taker skills (strengthtaker and co). 3. Use as much gold farming as you can (you'll need it) and buy second seals/friendship seals from other castles. Marriage seal should not need to be bought from other castles since you've got 3 by chapter 14 or so. 4. Reclass ASAP if reclassing is needed to get a bow (except healers, you keep them until you've got 1 or 2 adventurers, depending on your need for staves, I suggest heavy heal spamming to get adventurers ASAP so you don't have to use E staffers too long and magic bow users at E rank). 5. It's not a race, if you're loosing your mind, just do something else and come back whenever you want. 6. Everyone get a bow class, even benchwarmers (at least they can shoot at each other from each side of the bench). It wouldn't be funny otherwise! 7. No other restriction, skill buy if you want since builds are the most funny thing to go for in such a run (especially if you don't want to do point blank DLC for each and every unit you'll play). 8. HAVE FUN! - - - - - My team would be: - Jakob bow knight (from Felicia S), not usable before long though; - Silas bow knight; - Kaze mechanist; - Mozu sniper, maybe Kinshi for diversity (+ she's the only potential kinshi who doesn't need good growth rates from the class since she's got good ones from personal + aptitude); - Shura himself; - Xander bow knight (A+ Laslow), although he could go mechanist too (A+ Kaze) but he would be completely unable to wield his personal sword and he would only loose HP, str, def and mov from paladin so I don't think it's worth it (bow knight gives instant +2 speed, which is all Xander needs to rock with much less investment than he'd need in paladin, 18 base spd >>16); - Leo adventurer or bow knight (A+ from Niles, I haven't decided yet); - Camilla bow knight (A+ Selena); - Elise adventurer (S Niles) to keep staves; - Laslow bow knight (saving a second seal + bow knight 2 speed advantage is better for him than mechanist mediocre bases + growths); - Peri mechanist (S with Kaze) because I think the class suits her more thematically (it's weird, unappealing, and puppets are creepy, sadly mechanists don't summon or control puppets...), but bow knight is possible too (A+ Selena); - Beruka bow knight (A+ Selena); - Selena Kinshi because we've got too many bow knights already; - Odin adventurer (we need staves and we're already lacking them too much); - Niles depends (if he's got enough mag he goes adventurer, if he's got too low mag he goes bow knight); - Effie sniper or Kinshi (A+ Mozu) (sniper is more effective but Kinshi is still fast, increases greatly her res and there aren't many flying archers for the moment); - Arthur bow knight (A+ Niles); - Nyx adventurer; - Charlotte bow knight (S Keaton); - Benny either bow knight or Sniper (a tank not vulnerable to bows is nice so Kinshi is out); - Keaton bow knight (A+ Laslow); - Gunter bow knight; - Flora bow knight (A+ Felicia); - Izana mechanist. Corrin can be anything so I don't mention him/her, although ballistician Cornflakes could be funny, if I don't end up giving dat class to Gunter with a +2 silver bow for a decent attack and accuracy, and he can get more attack without having to fight with moar and moar foarges.
  11. I want to try a self-imposed challange by playin in Hard Mode and using a gamehark codes which disables Critical Hits for my team only. Does anyone know if there if there is such a code? I'm playing on Dolphin btw.
  12. I did a fe8 no shop challenge, but that was a bit too easy so I'm going to do a harder game, fe6. Rules should be simple, just no shops in any situation. This is ch1-part of ch3 since I had to go in the middle of it. The first 15 mins is like me waiting for my co-commentator, the Amelia dude, unkirb (that's not his actual name but I call him that). Communication problems, but I'll get them fixed next video. Of course I'm also using rigging in this challenge and I feel like it's going to be a make bigger difference than SS.
  13. Hello the 1 person reading this post. A while ago, I decided to try Sacred Stones without using the shop at all. No armory, SS, battle preps, or anything. This run will involve saving as much uses on weapons as possible since I can't buy any and also because rout maps. Also ye there's going to be a lot of rigging, this is just a theoretical run, not an actual run otherwise I would be dead pretty quickly. This is the playlist so far involving an intro of the challenge, and prolouge to chapter 4. P-3 are seperated into 2 videos. One is a slide video based on the details of the chapter on what I do and stuff and the other is gameplay. Neither has audio. 4 is details + gameplay + audio. If you prefer the ones before 4, the one in 4, or both, please let me know so that I can make these types of videos in advantage. The audio ones can only be made in specific days while the 2 video ones can be made anyway. I am currently working on chapter 5, but there's also a thing called irl so I cannot confirm when it will be released.
  14. So I'm in the middle of playing through Radiant Dawn, and after seeing this I had the brilliant idea to do a challenge run of my own. The basic premise of this is that I use a random number generator to choose ten characters, and one heron, to use in the endgame. Also, I can only use these characters + the required units for the endgame throughout the entire game. The rules: - On maps where non-endgame characters are forced, they can move, but not fight. This means I can use them as shields for my weaker units, but have to unequip their weapons to prevent them from doing any damage - On maps where there are none of my endgame characters available, I can do whatever I want. Generally, I'll just mess around with the game, or try and use a single unit to solo it, just for fun. - I'm playing on easy mode, because I'm a baby who never plays any mode other than easy. (not entirely true, but I don't want to deal with the harder difficulties with this mess of a challenge) - I can't reset for better stats, or to rig a crit or dodge. More rules might be added later, but this is all I can think of for now. Anyways, on to the units I'll be using! Muarim Zihark Taroneo Rafiel Black Knight/Zelgius Astrid Soren Ranulf Janaff Ulki Tibarn And of course, the forced units for the endgame, Ike, Micaiah, Sothe, Sanaki, Ena, and Kurthnaga I feel like I got pretty lucky with some of these. Defiantly not as bad as it could've been. Anyways, on with the actual game. And thats that! These first too weren't that exciting, but it'll start to pick up as I continue. I'll update sometime, though probably pretty sporadically, since I'm pretty busy.
  15. Hey there. I had an idea for one of those "30 Day" challenges, but this time applying to Fire Emblem OCs. In short, it's a collection of common tropes/archetypes which have appeared multiple times across the Fire Emblem franchise. I don't mean to toot my own horn but this works as an art challenge and as a writing challenge, either way you can use the mediums to design a characters. I'll try to keep this as short as I can. and hey have fun
  16. Let's play a game within a game, and write a story within a story. A common complaint I've seen about FE 1/3/11/12 is the lack of development of characters. If that's a problem for you, we're going to fix it. I propose that anyone who is interested in this game/challenge takes up an Iron Man of their chosen Archanea game. From there we take notes of what happens (who kills bosses, who damages/defeats what enemies, what enemies kill your characters/supports that occur if FE12/conversations if FE 11) When finished, we write it into a cohesive story. Or you could do it chapter by chapter. Whatever works. Building characters you're using in the story as it progresses (thoughts, backgrounds etc). Use what we know about them, head cannon, and anything you can come up with that fits canon and your playthrough. I say "we", but given I'm mid-run of New Mystery, I'd have to restart so... really, at this point it's "you" until I've freed myself up again. Good luck, and may your death count not be too high.
  17. Hi, I'm starting a challenge for fun (not a try hard in normal/hard mode but a funny PT in easy mode). Axes, thunder tomes users and tigers are the only classes allowed with maybe an exception for Volug since the DB needs a few units for p3 defend chapters, and Sothe/Heather just for utility (as few combat involved as possible). I'm planning on using: Nolan (quite forced to anyway), Ilyana, Jill, Sothe (as told), Volug (as told, and in replacement of tiger Laguz), Muharim isn't worth the investment (sadly because I like him), because LOLavailability. /Haar (not like there are other axe users in his joining chapter anyway), Brom (same) and Mordecai (if I can make anything out of his crap bases and mediocre growths), Kieran (I'll try, don't blame me for the shit he could do because his accuracy and avoid are so bad and his personnal skill isn't made for him + paladins are really not that great in FE10 because of terrain), little heron will be used only if vital and kept in security. /Ike (forced if I intend to finish the run or the Burger King will OS him), not Boyd (please guys his bases for his level are awful and he's far from the promotion bonuses, he sucks in his joining chapter and takes forever to start paying off), Ilyana again, not Soren (1 sage is hard enough to protect and he doesn't even access to high level thunder tomes), Titania (she's nearly forced to finish 3-1 in time), and Gatrie only if his T2 has acess to axes, if not then sadly Gatrie won't be my guy (well Brom will join fast enough anyway), Mordecai (if he truned good enough), Haar (if I need him or else bye bye god tier flyer), Heather (utility), and I think that's it for axe/thunder/tigers. /The same ones + the new tiger (yes, the shitty one, but there's something about him I've always wanted to try, so I'll do it now), and I think that's it. Or are there other ones? Paragon will be given to the latest units exp-wise (notably said baby tiger who clearly has cat growths, at least he won't get doubled much ^^ unlike Mordecai). /Well now I won't change the cast for the tower, just keeping the best ones and benching the ones who couldn't survive. No POR boosts in case you ask. --- I did prologue with Micayah killing the mobs, then Nolan only until I get Ilyana. End of chapter 1: Micayah 5,14: 17 hp, 2 str, 11 mag, 9 skl, 8 spd, 13 lck, 2 def, 8 res. Nolan 13,59: 12 str, 1 mag, 15 skl, 14 spd, 7 lck, 13 def (I gave him the dracoshield), 4 res. Got unlucky on strength...I didn't modify my level ups, I didn't use Cheat Engine, everything legit. Maybe I'll use save/reload to maximize stats per level for the bad sarting characters (Jill, Volug whose exp gains suck, Brom at the beginning if he doesn't get good level ups from the get-go, Mordecai, the other tiger, Ike because he needs good stats to beat Fast Food) but not like resetting 30 times until I get a near-perfect level up like I like to do (just going for the stats they lack will be enough). Ike will be forced to use axes once he can, unless the boss attacks him from 2 range (forcing a 1-2 range legendary weapon named Ragnell). If he can be beaten with Urvan then Ike will use Urvan, but I highly doubt it (range, stats, WTD).
  18. Hi gamers, I'm willing to do a hard mode run if possible in no grind with as little pair ups as possible (only for when they can't do it without pair up and mostly for the early game since it's the point when units are weak). Which are the worst units I could toy with? -Ricken maybe -Miriel because she's a glass cannon -Gaius maybe (terrible base stats+class doesn't help with his bases/growths) -Frederick? If he is used past chapter 11 his usefulness falls heavily as a main unit -Zelcher? She has no reclassing options for physical unit -Maribelle? her performance in the desert is awful, some plains have many forests for her to be slowed down and her stats are overmeh -Nowi? -Gregor maybe? He isn't gonna double anyone before long and isn't really a tank + he lacks mobility as a hero or stats as a bow knight -Vaike? Yeah Vaike is a good bad choice -Archer Virion? It might be his worst class -Henry without nosferatu? He might get doubled all the time from his join time -Pegasus!Cordelia? -Not fighting Olivia because of no grind rule (Olivia won't reach level 10 dancer before long so reclassing her is gonna be hard) -Donnel? He starts very weak and if I throw him to the fighter class he might be less OP than in the mercenary route (and maybe warrior then for counter, rally strength for late game use). If you have more ideas or builds for said "bad" unit or if you want me to do a no reclass (except units who can't play in their base class like Donnel) then please tell me. It's gonna be fun! Or not...
  19. Give me a unit, what kind of build you want, and skills I can't use (limit one per category), and I'll give you a build idea.

  21. This is a challenge I came up with, initially as a joke between me and a friend, but I've decided to make it into a fully-fledged challenge. Here are the rules: 1. Play on any difficulty you desire. Your team must consist of Marth, a unit of your choice (and class of choice, but you can make this character a randomized one), and 13 randomized units with randomized classes (except for Special Classes (ex. Thieves, Manaketes)) 2. Kill off ALL generic units. 3. You must go through EVERY single Gaiden Chapter (but 24x is optional). 4. You may temporarily use units until you get the permanent, randomized ones (ex. Using Wrys before getting, say, Lena). 5. Reclass the randomized units ASAP. Alright, so here's how the randomizing thing will work: Step 1. Get a random decision maker (if on iOS, I suggest RDM). I reccomend http://www.textfixer.com/tools/random-choice.php 2. Put the names of every character in the decision maker excluding Gotoh and Nagi. When putting in Arran and Samson, list them as a single option as Arran/Samson then randomize with them. Roll for 13 units (or 14 if you're not doing a Unit of Choice) 3. You may re-roll characters up to 3 times (not per character, just 3 times period. This way it's less dickish.). 4. Once character randomizing is done, randomize the Classes of all Class Set A characters (Those with access to Paladin, Dracoknight, Sniper, Swordmaster, Sage, and Bishop) then the Class Set B characters (Those with access to Hero, Warrior, Berserker, General, Horseman, and Sorcerer). You may re-roll classes up to 3 times period. 5. Also, choose which Endgame character you want-- Gotoh or Nagi. Note that by choosing Gotoh, you may not visit Chapter 24x. If choosing Nagi, 24x is required. Then I'd suggest putting them on a list. I'll share my team with you that I got. 1. Marth - Lord 2. Abel - Dracoknight 3. Caeda - Sniper 4. Ogma - Berserker 5. Barst - Hero 6. Darros - Horseman 7. Julian - Thief 8. Merric - Sage (Unit of Choice) 9. Caesar - Hero 10. Radd - Paladin 11. Maria - Dracoknight 12. Linde - Bishop 13. Dolph - Warrior 14. Est - Swordmaster 15. Tiki - Manakete 16. Nagi - Manakete Yeah, I got way luckier than I would've expected (sans the Unit of Choice). Also, feel free to tag your Let's Plays involving this challenge with fe11gaidenrandom! Let me know if anything confuses you and I'll try to help.
  22. I'm doing a second run of Fates, on Lunatic this time, but since I'm doing Conquest Lunatic right now (it's a hell of a challenge) I'm interested if anyone knows of any good self-imposed challenges in Fire Emblem, specifically for Revelations, because Revelations will seem too easy to me after beating Conquest on Lunatic (if I beat it that its).
  23. May as well open a thread. So, on a whim and for science I started a new account and wanted to see how far in the game I can get only using 2* heroes. Something no normal player would do, but eh, why not? It's not like the game requires that much time at the moment anyways and it will stay a side project. So far, I've reached 11-5 and will wait until I get a few more ranged characters up, because that map is probably not possible with only melee units due to the turn limit and the enemy positioning. I just beat normal Narcian with my team which unlocked him for me (since he is one of the two only GHB units which appears as 2*). I am pretty sure I will hit a Brick Wall sooner rather than later, but if that actually does happen, I may "upgrade" the challenge to allow all free heroes (so GHBs, quest rewards or Tempest Trial). Basically, I want to see how far you can get with the bare minimum of everything. And if that doesn't work, I either call it a days or allow a bit more than the bare minimum. I am not completely sure what I will do once I really hit a brick wall, bu the options I have considered are: Upgrade the challenge from 2* only to free units only Allow Skill Inheritance Allow merging Allow a combination of all of the above So far I haven't spent any orbs and only did the free pulls. I am not sure I would really like the idea of merging as I could simply use 3* heroes then. Skill Inheritance could be funny, I already got a 5* Tharja and the idea of a 2* Sophia/Raigh with the Blade+ tome is stupid enough to be tested! xD The main team for most of the content was Sharena, Alfonse, Anna and Virion, who are level 39-40 already. I have several other characters already in the 20-30 range and I am still missing about half of the daily heroes. So there is still room for me. As I said before, I may "upgrade" the challenge and therefore am also using a few 3* units in order to finish the last few sacred seals quest. Well, maybe someone finds this intereting or may actually join me in my crusade. Anyway, I will update this thread from time to time if at least a few people show their interest. Edit: May as well post a video of my Narcian kill:
  24. So basically I want everyone to make an avatar for a specific class line, and send me your castle address and I'll beat your team, pick your avatar, and use them in my run. 1. Jeff (Apothecary) by Me 2 . Lorelei (Troubadour) by @LoneStar 3. Madoka (Great Lord) by @AceDrake 4. Nora (Oni Savage) by TAR on Miiverse 5. Corrin (Knight) by Random Castle 6. Flynn (Outlaw) by Random Castle 7. Austin (Mercenary) by Random Castle
  25. Would a themed run in which I only use Chrom, the Tactician and a list of characters from one game be possible? Preferably the run would be an ironman, with me killing off all characters that aren't in line with my specific theme, Chrom or the Tactician. If not, would it be more realistic to pull units from each era; an NES era play through, SNES era play through, GBA era play through, etc...? Thank you for your input.
