SANAKI

  1. 1. Should I be allowed to use Sanaki because of her being Micaiah's sister?

    • Yeh, sure, go ahead.
      42
    • Nope, her brand isn't visible.

Vika and Muarim are definites due to the poll, Stefan and Soren will be taken, along with Volug. The other 5 is currently undecided but possible candidates are:

Ranulf

Mordy

Janaff

Lyre (lol)

Lethe

Skrimir

Giffca (not sure though, Giffca with Laguz Gem is basically Cain with no turn 1 player phase action, which is a bit too op)

Nealuchi (maybe, he has a case of LEA syndrome)

You do know you forgot Ulki and Kysha/Kyza, right? Or maybe you're not using them?

Definitely won't be using Kysha, he does badly in the two most important Tiger stats.

Ulki is way better than Janaff. He can dodge arrows too.

Oh, I forgot about Ulki's dodging skills, I always kind of migrate to Janaff in my runs because he has a higher base. Might use Ulki then.

Anyway, update later today hopefully.

PART 2: OF COUNTRIES AND KINGS

subtitled: what are laguz lol

2-P:

lol

image.jpg3_zpsmywcstf4.jpgimage.jpg2_zpsoqcxynzw.jpg

Don't listen to the haters Elincia I believe in you(r uselessness in this run)!

image.jpg4_zpsmrbacong.jpg

At least she can peace talk.

image.jpg5_zpskbqns1ef.jpg

Anyway, screw politics, it's time to fight!

image.jpg6_zpsfo0c3pvi.jpg

Elincia and Marcia go in the corner and unequip their weapons.

image.jpg7_zpsj0mzwsdn.jpg

Nealuchi attacks the Dracoknight and gets in range of Leanne (who will probably die in 3-11 because I suck).

image.jpg8_zpsnahfiurh.jpg

Nealuchi luckily still manages to double the enemies with Leanne in his pocket, so he'll be fine fighting.

image.jpg9_zpsxp288emm.jpg

The Nealuchi solo is happening! (kind of)

image.jpg10_zpsdsgpy7qm.jpg

Um, excuse you Marcia, that laguz is a PRINCESS, check your privilege.

image.jpg11_zpsgfpmdkuz.jpg

Anyways, back to your scheduled programming.

image.jpg12_zpshouqsxcd.jpg

...I may have a problem.

image.jpg13_zpsn5pgh8fk.jpg

image.jpg14_zpsb4uwprrk.jpg

Nealuchi kills one of them, and Elincia tanks the other one's axe with her face. Or, well, she would have if she wasn't a dodge-tank.

image.jpg15_zpscts1pget.jpg

Nealuchi's transform gauge was low, so I untransformed him and abused how ranged attacks missing fills up the gauge, due to the Dracoknight next to Elincia having a Hand Axe.

image.jpg16_zpsxnrm7bh8.jpg

...it doesn't work out that well with Nealuchi though, only filling up 10. .-.

image.jpg17_zps63e2njvc.jpg

Eh, at least he gains 6 per turn.

image.jpg18_zpsi8ybmsls.jpg

Nealuchi's hitrates are looking pretty bad for laguz standards. D=

image.jpg19_zps8schfozn.jpg

On Turn 6 EP, every single enemy on the map rushed Nealuchi. This is bad. ._.

image.jpg20_zps9vijthil.jpg

image.jpg21_zpsnsxkxpjc.jpg

Nealuchi manages to kill one, but his gauge won't hold out against all of them...

image.jpg22_zpszjrqx9yq.jpg

This is looking very bad - untransformed Nealuchi gets doubled and he's 3 hits away from untransforming. So what do I do?

image.jpg23_zpsn3tltr4z.jpg

YOLO

image.jpg25_zpsi3rcd9dh.jpg

Thanks to the enemy AI on this map, the boss captured Leanne, but due to it being the last turn, he won't be able to take her away. 8D

image.jpg27_zpsluplskt3.jpg

Nealuchi gets in to some battles but isn't strong enough to finish them, and isn't able to due to the map ending.

image.jpg30_zpsb9qy4tbs.jpg

Marcia dialogue/10

image.jpg31_zpswhcfde7o.jpg

I understand completely.

2-1:

image.jpg33_zpsmo9wbwzj.jpg

Now, I could just skip this chapter due to there not being any laguz, but I decided I want to try out some crazy stuff in the three chapters we don't have anyone under laguz/branded.

image.jpg34_zps8doqhjr2.jpg

Let's go!

image.jpg35_zps43kpm5py.jpg

The plan: Brom will get the two villages above the ledge, while Neph is going to head down for Heather-recruiting purposes.

image.jpg36_zpstur2fkex.jpg

Will probably sell this if I'm in need of funds, Luck is kind of useless.

image.jpg37_zpskigxfuii.jpgimage.jpg38_zpscp6eu3vv.jpgimage.jpg39_zpsbso5tcez.jpg

The only magic I'll be using in this playthrough is through the form of Micaiah.

image.jpg40_zps1tbyqp8s.jpg

Sorry stranger, but sword > axe. Learn your weapon triangle.

image.jpg41_zps1dvtkf4v.jpg

Free money!

image.jpg42_zps5xeipedp.jpg

IT'S HEATHER OUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBOURHOOD LESBIAN

image.jpg43_zps3c7rvxmg.jpg

Yeeep.

image.jpg44_zpsm1iyfxcv.jpg

How are names cute?

image.jpg45_zpstmcjvf3v.jpg

The middle part of that isn't something Heather likes apparently.

image.jpg46_zpslcvg8mlx.jpg

Yay, Neph can actually double now! :D

image.jpg47_zpsbhm8leky.jpg

So anyway, the fun part. My plan involves stealing the Venin Edge so Ike can have some fun with it in Part 3.

image.jpg48_zpsjzdegqhm.jpg

Let's just say getting a Disarm proc involved a bit of rigging. Not as much as I expected though, only one reset.

image.jpg50_zpsdcwecap8.jpg

I did it! :D

image.jpg51_zpsdunqmmkp.jpg

:newyears:

image.jpg52_zpspeu7mzbg.jpg

Anyway, time for the boss.

image.jpg53_zpsmmpnjdfz.jpg

With giving Neph a Herb, the boss gets her to 9 HP, which is in Wrath range.

image.jpg54_zpsgwipr7hw.jpg

Luckily the Javelin dude doesn't do enough damage to kill her.

image.jpg55_zpsvqmhoblt.jpgimage.jpg56_zpstjndms9v.jpg

...this is going to take a bit of rigging.

image.jpg58_zps6l5ai8jh.jpg

Reset count: 2

image.jpg57_zpscap22bam.jpg

Reset count: 3

image.jpg59_zpsrugg9cee.jpg

:newyears:

image.jpg60_zpshponvhjd.jpg

um, excuse me? im tumblr user r4dicalf3minist and i am otherkin and identify with bumpkin, how dare you insult my kind?

image.jpg61_zpscujodxsn.jpg

I got a turn bonus? o.o

Next time: 2-2, 2-3 and 2-E because Part 2 gameplay is boring and has a grand total of 4 laguz.

Excuse you filthy cishet oppressor how dare you insult the bumpkin tumblr community?! we go through such struggles every DAY! Whenever one of you scumlords hits a bump on the road you are actually killing our well known family and friends. It's people like you that make me want to set myself on fire. Please if you cannot recognise the bumpkin community just leave reality. thx xoxox

I personally use Ashera Icons to make Miccy max luck early for BXP purposes...

Also, Nealuchi too OP

I've watched a video, where Nealuchi could ORKO Ludveck with two wrath criticals. Though he requires S strike to do enough damage.

This was the video my comment was referring to.

However this was on HM and LTC.

On easy mode the number of enemies is lower and their hitrate is worse, so it should be possible. Nealuchi just needs two criticals.

Thankfully easy mode has a quick save, so you could try it out. A bosskill on EM gives you (almost) a level up, even for laguz.

@Catalena, Supershyguy64: Thank you! :D

Just 2-2 right now because it's dark and I can't take high quality pics:

image.jpg1_zpspp2catde.jpg

Nephenee and Brom confirmed rebels whaaaaaat?

image.jpg2_zpscth7kzyq.jpg

And we're already at the midpoint of Part 2. Wow.

image.jpg3_zpsajbffvhd.jpg

If you wanted to see it coming you should have opened your eyes, Lucia.

image.jpg4_zps3gxlexe1.jpg

Sorry Elincia, this is Fire Emblem, that's impossible.

image.jpg5_zpswtc2ncme.jpg

Once again, I don't think the people in this chapter grasp the concept of not being able to see with your eyes closed.

image.jpg6_zpstsa6o9cw.jpg

omg it's 2 out of the only 3 units we can use in combat this chapter

image.jpg7_zpsqoppzxq8.jpg

Life advice with Lethe.

image.jpg8_zpsqlkksexv.jpg

ugh

image.jpg9_zpscn5i9xba.jpg

If anything, at least Lucia grasps the concept of this playthrough.

image.jpg10_zpshmlg08pg.jpg

That...sounds really creepy.

image.jpg11_zpsfcmaiawz.jpg

So kind that he's the boss of 2-E!

image.jpg12_zpsuqpc8q1i.jpg

And by the hard way, she means laguz solo because laguzmasterrace.

image.jpg13_zpsr7dcmc7e.jpg

The 2-2 squad. Half of our party is laguz, for a chapter where we don't have deployment choice this is rather good.

image.jpg14_zpsswqgr1hv.jpg

Probably shouldn't be wasting Laguz Stone uses on a chapter this easy, but Lethe can't really fight untransformed well at all, especially compared to Mordy.

image.jpg15_zpscsoxdlxm.jpg

Turn 1 formation. All beorc have their weapons unequipped. Then again, the only weapons of theirs I really care about are Heather's Venin Edge for shenanigans later on. Everything else will be sold for maximum grass smoking.

image.jpg16_zpsdkvjayu7.jpg

Side goal of this chapter is train up Nealuchi's strike rank a bit so he can maybe do the 2-E LTC strat you guys showed me.

image.jpg17_zpsy4z1xxg7.jpg

...

image.jpg18_zpskhmtat7b.jpg

Holy frick, Raven FoW sight range is horrible.

image.jpg19_zps2jdgrdh5.jpg

...that's bad.

image.jpg20_zpsm2yb4g8b.jpg

Luckily Leanne exists to Heather can block the path to 1-shotting Nealuchi.

image.jpg21_zpszcg2kmy7.jpg

Neph got beat up quite a bit on enemy phase. Her defense is pretty bad for a Halberdier, she should probably take some tips from Aran. Then again this is the last time she's ever going to see combat so it doesn't really matter anymore. ._.

image.jpg22_zpskexc5hkr.jpg

At least Mordy is useful.

image.jpg23_zpspfubcdud.jpg

The saga begins.

image.jpg24_zpsnk6tzgus.jpg

Grinding that strike rank on Halberdiers than Nealuchi 3HKO probably isn't the most efficient method.

image.jpg25.jpg

Nealuchi's gauge is at 3 at this point. I would have him fight untransformed but his untransformed offense is pitiful and, to top it off, the enemy Generals have exactly 17 defense to counter his 17 attack.

image.jpg26_zpsaipymvdr.jpg

Mordecai is doubling! Probably not something I'll be able to see ever again.

image.jpg27_zpsww7ghz7v.jpg

Mordecai = Muarim v2

image.jpg28_zpsrd2lfsld.jpg

totes didnt rig strength so he could kill a general/10

image.jpg29_zpsvls3bbxd.jpg

image.jpg30_zpsztlcdbn6.jpg

I was considering rigging a crit on the boss to kill it...

but then I realised I'm an idiot and Nealuchi has Canto.

image.jpg31_zpspsrb7zh5.jpg

That's better.

image.jpg32_zps1v2bb7bc.jpg

Next chapter will be pretty fun, seeing as we have no laguz. I'll probably try to get Astrid to 3rd tier.

image.jpg34_zpsy2pdjxhh.jpg

Because the first thing I do with new languages is read people's minds and tell their thoughts to them!

image.jpg35_zpsgkxncvyw.jpg

Seriously though, I haven't read the Part 2 story in a while and I forgot how good it actually was.

image.jpg36_zpsrvu3uiul.jpg

Not sure where this bexp will be going.

Next time: Astrid solo of 2-3 and me attempting (and probably horribly failing) to LTC 2-E.

So since the last post I've started doing a similar playthrough and i remember doing the midnight laguz smackdown level. I got both of my kitties to level 22 and bird boy was already 24 from soloing the first mission. S strike OP SS strike OpieOP

Stealing a Venin Edge, why have I never tried to do this? Should be fun to play with!

Probably because it's easier to kill an enemy in this game than to poison them.

Was planning on doing 2-3 and 2-E together but Astrid solo of 2-3 ended up being very long. D=

Anyway,

2-3:

image.jpg2_zpsflhcmmhx.jpg

Crimean Royal Fails amirite 8D

image.jpg3_zpsnefcdxr0.jpg

I feel like it'd be cool if a civil war did happen, so you could have a bit more time with the CRKs.

image.jpg4_zpslj1nfoyx.jpg

*Astrid's Charge.

image.jpg5_zpsu0tmkc9b.jpg

omg it's a branded character

Except they're like 5 so we can't exactly fight with them. .-.

image.jpg6_zpsyjq1ktga.jpg

Makalov = confirmed gay?

image.jpg7_zpsubmnizqw.jpg

Free money! Not like you have a shortage of it in this game anyway though.

image.jpg8_zpsd017wgsy.jpg

Classic Kieran.

image.jpg9_zpswl3oz1ce.jpg

I would bexp Astrid for this but I want to save my bexp for the laguz in 2-E.

image.jpg10_zpsdtrgdjsf.jpgimage.jpg11_zps7fgi1p6q.jpg

I buy Astrid the bows on the market. Spoiler alert: she'll end up needing pretty much every last use.

image.jpg12_zpswmkbiuqh.jpg

Marcia takes the 2-3 Hammer to give it to Neph in 2-E, to give it to the GM convoy in 3-2 to be used in 4-E-2. The planning is real.

image.jpg13_zpsida1xg91.jpg

Who needs troops when you have Astrid, our lord and saviour?

image.jpg14_zps8a0ed2eg.jpg

image.jpg15_zps618avnym.jpg

IT'S TIME

image.jpg17_zps8tq7ijtm.jpg

Base Astrid ORKO's something whaaaat?

image.jpg18_zpsijspxntv.jpg

First turn setup. AI are set to Halt.

image.jpg1_zpslz0xoqms.jpg

Astrid takes quite a bit of a beating from the Halberdier EP, so I get the allied units to surround her.

image.jpg20_zpsjlglaqrm.jpg

Like this.

image.jpg21_zpsdrp7sfs4.jpg

Strength, I like it.

image.jpg22_zpsvs2qmchm.jpg

Astrid Cantos here for full protection.

image.jpg23_zpsrcmjfzbv.jpg

Alright, everything set up. From here on out Astrid has a safe spot to snipe the enemies near her and have any damage be meatshielded by the allied units/Geoffrey.

image.jpg24_zps3kkdcyto.jpg

Astrid/10

image.jpg25_zpsq2e6mdij.jpg

Base Astrid exp gain is insane. 60 exp a kill.

image.jpg26_zpspohic2ws.jpg

And 30 for a chip.

image.jpg27_zpsqj1qtodg.jpg

Nice, nice.

image.jpg28_zpsjxmeiaxp.jpg

Astrid isn't ceasing to impress me this chapter. :D

image.jpg29_zpsr4je0cod.jpg

The reinforcements kind of stockpile up here, but luckily most of them ignore Astrid for now.

image.jpg30_zps5sabkoqi.jpg

gotta go fast

image.jpg31_zps0xwqqs0b.jpg

Some of the enemies have ranged weapons, but due to our wall of meatshields Astrid won't get hit by them.

image.jpg32_zps2reilgbk.jpg

It isn't impenetrable though, as demonstrated by this mage.

image.jpg33_zps5idt0qhy.jpg

iamokaywiththis.jpg

image.jpg34_zpsdbejc3sw.jpg

R.I.P all but 6 of the allied units. You probably won't be missed, sorry.

image.jpg35_zpse4ecljmo.jpg

ASTRID FOR TOP TIER

image.jpg36_zpsmfoqklvf.jpg

...

image.jpg37_zpswgqa8ghd.jpg

LOL

image.jpg38_zpsi1sjrzeg.jpg

Astrid is gaining levels amazingly fast. She's also getting fairly Strength blessed. Not complaining though.

image.jpg39_zpsdkcbddof.jpg

Your job has been fulfilled.

image.jpg40_zpszz5fij7p.jpg

And Astrid caps Res!

image.jpg41_zpsngk0zmvo.jpg

I love the crazy things you can pull off in Easy Mode. Partly why I decided to go EM for this playthrough.

image.jpg42_zpsxkafaezj.jpg

oma (oh my astrid because astrid = god)

image.jpg1_zps7cpvqgmo.jpg

So anyway, I move up a bit and set up this chokepoint thingy. Geoffrey and Kieran both have Vulneraries to chug, so they'll survive. May the Astrid rampage begin!

image.jpg45_zpsmma3dxso.jpg

Decent I guess?

image.jpg46_zps4cwdubf9.jpg

I'll take Speed.

image.jpg47_zpspsiwpeia.jpg

GEOFFREY GOT A LEVEL UP FROM DODGE EXP LOL

image.jpg48_zpsz0cmefex.jpg

And Astrid caps HP!

image.jpg49_zpsmll3jvws.jpg

Astrid is now officially the same level as Geoffrey. Easy Mode/10

image.jpg50_zpssbcvfp6n.jpg

There's the Luck cap.

image.jpg51_zpstswvaf8e.jpg

The hardcore Astrid grinding was so strong she broke one of her bows. I wasn't lying when I said she needed almost every last use.

image.jpg52_zps7lzgsruj.jpg

The middle is cleared with an obviously amazing turncount of 45 turns. fight me dondon

image.jpg53_zps02ls4n2z.jpg

My Astrid continues to remain 2 points Str blessed. I'm not sure why, but I'll take it.

image.jpg54_zpsewi4rpt4.jpg

23 total shots left for Astrid. ._.

image.jpg55_zpsepx8qjsi.jpg

I forgot enemy AI in this game isn't as stupid as FE13 AI. They actually know that healing hedges exist. .__.

image.jpg56_zpsxlby8kao.jpg

Bad level up contest, Astrid vs Volug gogogogogogogogo

image.jpg57_zpsojbkhd1w.jpg

The Tier 3 is so close I can smell it. Kind of.

image.jpg58_zpsx0g0xlqp.jpg

0 for Hit and Crit. Astrid for top tier amirite?

image.jpg59_zpsoblrcyur.jpg

Full inventories are cool.

image.jpg60_zpsaywwdpk7.jpg

And she hits Level 20!

image.jpg61_zpsr1e3jy8i.jpg

Kieran actually does something to preserve Astrid's weapon use.

image.jpg62_zpscuwpxrwf.jpg

Astrid 3HKO's the boss. Wow.

image.jpg63_zps3czssuzm.jpg

SHE CRIT LOL

image.jpg64_zpsmo73qe9u.jpg

I'M DYING

image.jpg65_zpsabfzhjn6.jpg

57 turns. Definitely worth it.

image.jpg66_zps2yqdre9i.jpg

It's probably not a good idea to, y'know, have the guy with an EYEPATCH be watch for flares.

image.jpg67_zpsrdoq989q.jpg

The sass is too real.

image.jpg68_zpsexclyg6v.jpg

And the Astrid solo is finished!

Next time: I attempt (and probably fail) to LTC 2-E.

I like the idea of this and I'll admit I was considering doing the exact same thing at some point. I think it'll be interesting to see what some of your guys look like for endgame since the laguz have such ridiculous caps and such low exp gain. I wonder how many of them you'll be able to fully max even with Paragon. I've always wondered how effective a trained Volug, Ranulf, etc. would be since they usually have such short term use in most playthroughs (i.e. people don't really "train" them per se).

I reckon with EM bexp and Paragon I'll be able to fully max at least the 8 I'm taking to Endgame. Something I'm considering for Endgame is bexping Rafiel so that he can get that chant that fully refills laguz gauges, so I can use them turn 1.

Can i get a LyreOP? Both of these are from today.

0_zpsyqqqsbd3.jpg0_zps7hemlotm.jpg

O.O

Anyway, important thingy: so I recently acquired Dolphin, which allows me to easily take screenshots, straight to my computer as I go. With school coming up soon and less time where I can be alone to take the pics to update this, redoing this run on Dolphin would mean I could then pump out updates like, once a day. However that would mean I would have to start over, and thus end up with different stats and levels for my units. So,

Option A: I keep the file on my physical copy for this, at the cost of updates being infrequent and irregular, but with all the stats and items and stuff staying the same

Option B: I redo everything up to 2-E on Dolphin then continue the run from there, allowing much more frequent updates to this, but at the cost of stuff being slightly different. The pictures for this would also be better quality which is cool.

Make your picks!
