Best girl confirmed.
For me, she's at level 38 right now and has a whopping 46 magic. She one-shots nearly EVERYTHING. I retract everything bad I said about her in earlier posts. She's a monster.
How long until the so-called "veterans"/"elitists" (you know who) will start calling her the "objectively worst unit" in the game?

She has warp so that won’t happen. 

But yeah Lysithea is amazing. She never dissapoints me no matter the route.

Strangely, I pulled through the game with more than 20 uses of Grafcalibur left.

Although I think Grafcalibur is better spammed early on in hindsight. Later bosses love to carry Master weapons (looks like C16 Ilios starts it to be precise), a single hit of which Asbel has difficulties surviving, their 1-2 range and automatic doubling means he can't safely get in his 100 Crit followup killshot.

If Asvel uses continue or crit, he does not care about counterattacks. I think he killed about 95% of the bosses after he had joined because he gives a fuck to these stupid thrones boosts. 

Reminds me I still need to play FE5's latest translation. It is still a masterpiece for its time and the base for FE of today.

Kind of a dick move from Nintendo to start copyrighting every OST they can find.

They’re in their right and all but still  not something I like to see. Afaik they don’t even sell these OST and when they do they sometimes straighr up don’t have all of the tracks.

About the Super Smash 3DS thing, I have a New Nintendo 3DS XL, which makes things better.

But yeah, things being small as heck is kinda annoying... but I'm used to handhelds. And I have sharp vision.

I am on Chapter 18 of the Golden Deer Route right now.
Lysithea has 51 Magic at level 41. 51!
Her REGULAR damage output is in the 70s against physically inclined units. And that's without weapon effectiveness.
What the actual hell?

Also, Bow/Dark Knights with Aegis are awesome, the perfect counters against Archers and Mages (I promoted Leonie and Lorenz from Paladin into Bow Knight and Dark Knight respectively).

That's because Lysithea is amazing.

She's the nuke bomb unit. Might even be one of the best mages I've used in the series.

Definitely. She started out as good as the other two girls I used as Mages (Annette and Dorothea), but she has eclipsed both of them long ago.
The only comparison you could make is Delthea in Echoes, but even the lolinuke wasn't this blatantly more powerful than everyone else. I would call her Magic Dimitri (because that guy also turned into a veritable monster in my Blue Lions playthrough), but I think she might be even better than he was.

Thing that sucks about Delthea is that it takes quite a while till you recruit her and even when you get her she needs some level ups before she gets enough speed to double the enemy and get better spells.

Why did everyone suddenly forget Julia & Ced?

Lysithea doesn't need a holy weapon to be good.

As for Julia, she doesn't always one round enemies and isn't there for the entire game.

True, she comes a bit late. Luckily, it's quite easy to train her due to her very good base stats, unlike other Est archetype characters.
That's the beauty of Three Houses: the game gives you all the units you need right at the beginning.

In fact, she gets even better with one. Slap Thyrsus on her and the low Movement stat of the magic-related classes sans Dark/Holy Knight (the latter of which sucks, anyway) is no longer a problem. Best part? It stacks with other range-increasing skills, giving her a theoretical 5-range spell pool. AND it gives her Pavise/Aegis due to her crest. Only issue: you also need Lorenz to get the staff, so if you want to recruit Lysithea into another house, you have to make sure you also steal that guy to get the most out of her.

Haha, I know. Girl's already so strong but by giving her the Thyrsus and the BM+1 range ability she becomes a destroyer of all things. It's what I've been doing and she can easily take enemies out from ridiculous distances.

Finding more news about the Friends of Mineral Town remake, an interview with the game's producer was posted on a Chinese gaming site. 

My biggest takeaway from it? They're adding the "Best Friend" system from the Japanese version of Harvest Moon DS Cute! 

🏳️‍🌈

What does that mean? According to Fogu, the female-player version of Harvest Moon DS was too lazy to program out marriage to the four "special" bachelorettes: Leia, Keria, Witch Princess, and the Harvest Goddess; from the male version of the game. The "Best Friend" system was a hasty tweaking of the marriage dialogue, and while not de facto marriage, it basically is it, with the ability to adopt a child. Once you have a Best Friend, you cannot marry a bachelor or have another Best Friend. This was removed from the international release.

So, with the Friends of Mineral Town remake, you'll be able to play as the boy and undergo a "friendship ceremony" with any of the bachelors. It has not been stated whether you can Best Friends as a girl, but I'd see no good reason why not.

This so far has only been said to exist in the Asian version of the game (which does tend to feature a rudimentary English translation, partly b/c Hong Kong was a British colony, partly because it can reach a wider audience in the SE Asia region than having to translate into Tagalog, Malay, Indonesian, and other non-Chinese regional languages). But, I have every hope that the Best Friend system will feature in the international releases. If a part of the world where Taiwan only this year legalized gay marriage and another country considered making homosexuality punishable by death (Brunei). Then the Western world, where gay marriage has been legal for a while, can certainly tolerate, even embrace, these virtual civil unions with pixels. Why didn't 3H think of this?

 

Unfortunately, my mood to consider going for Kai has been dulled by his redesign from a little nautical to a jogger. But...

  • They are considering making an option to turn off the character portraits when talking to villagers.

...this will reduce that problem. If they go through with it. Since the 3D models aren't so much the problem, it's the 2D portraits that irk me more.

Ideally, I'd want them to offer the classic designs something I could toggle in the menu; I'd pay for it as DLC. But just turning off the new portraits would be enough.

 

Lastly, Marvelous has stated it is adding a new bachelor and bachelorette, but these individuals have not been shown yet.
