First off, we have Arden. Second, Arden gets the Pursuit Ring skill. Which can't be inherited. I'm crying right now.

Aside from that terrible news, the plot indicates that next chapter might be more based in Askr as an invasion happens. Who wants to guess what'll happen?

I think they'll just begin another Bruno/Zacharias, in which Veronica begins to lose herself and our heroes (and their heroes) battle yet another group of heroes from another world from the past of Fire Emblem (I'm willing to bet more Genealogy shenanigans) and after the last battle something will happen to snap Veronica to her senses before Loki decides "lol y'all dying today" and then the mysterious stranger named Walt appears and merges Askr into the world of Disney and then Thor appears and smites Loki into next week. That's Marvel Comics Thor. Give another week, and Capcom announces new DLC for MvC Infinite: Alfonse and Sharena as new playable fighters on the Marvel side.

YOU DECIDE when I gave up trying to predict how ridiculous this plot gets!

I wonder how they're going to distribute Arden and Ayra with only one TT. Maybe Arden will be the 6k reward and Ayra the 30k reward, so players will have to spend feathers to 5* Arden and discourage them from using Ayra as skill fodder

That or they could omit adding new seals for this TT to free up room for two copies of Arden and Ayra each. After all, we did just get access to six new seals with the implementation of the forge. It could look something like this perhaps:

6,000: 4* Arden
12,000: repeat (or possibly new) seal
20,000: 4* Ayra
30,000: 5* Arden
40,000: 5* Ayra

Arena bonus units. It's Cecilia week, so B!Lyn and Reinhardt won't be a problem. 

Hot damn, Laz is finally a bonus unit.  My +5 Laslow is ready.  ;):

Freaking Arden showing up like a goon in Paralogue 13-1. What the heck. I kind of wished he was voiced by Xander Mobus since he reminds me of Abigail from Street Fighter V. A bit miffed about him having a Follow-up Ring which is like a reverse, not inheritable Brash Assault 3. Every sword knight after Draug has been min-maxed to hell and they're all free assuming Arden is a TT unit or even GHB for whatever reason.

Ayra would make sense as a GHB unit, right? I checked her page before and you can fight her kind of like with Navarre. Speaking of Ayra, a bit annoyed, but a bit hopeful that in the future, the developers will change the Night Sky specials to use speed to calculate damage because of her Regnal Astra. Also, Beruka should have a different special because of that since 23 speed isn't going to get her any damage with a speed-based Glimmer.

Arvis, when will you become available. I need your red mage goodness even though giving a Sophia G Tomebreaker and leveling up my second, -Atk Tharja -- better than my first Tharja who is -Spd at any rate -- would be fine for my needs.

Anyway, she wasn't going to be what I thought she would have been, but I was kind of close with guessing Tailtiu's stats. Gamepedia says her neutral stats are 39 HP, 32 Atk, 35 Spd, 17 Def, and 25 Res which was close to my guess of a magically-inclined Gaius stat spread of 42 HP, 29 Atk, 38 Spd, 15 Def, and 24 Res. +HP, -Atk would put her right around there, but that's not a great boon/bane to have. Y'know, having a neutral Linde kind of makes me feel like I can't get anything substantially better when it comes to glass cannon blue mages unless they were a flying or cavalry mage. Mages generally being glass cannons doesn't help.

So ... between a +atk -HP and +atk -res Eliwood, which one is better?

If for whatever reason you want to use Def Ploy on Eliwood, then +Atk, -HP would be better with Durandal or Brave Sword. If I recall correctly from what @JSND Alter Dragon Boner said. Otherwise, +Atk, -Res would be safer with his 23 neutral defense since he's probably going to take a hit from physical units and 29 resistance is still pretty good considering there aren't any other high resistance cavaliers other than +Res BH Roy or Sigurd being Sigurd despite apparently having 17 resistance according to his gamepedia page.

Arya makes me weep for my Navarre ._. 

Sometimes it makes me wish that in the future they could introduce promotional items help older or lower tiered units keep up by redistributing stats, introducing unique skills, or even changing weapon type to them. I can imagine them being useful for lower tier characters like Odin, Fir, Caeda.. or even promoting some of the staff users into tome users etc.

No GHB unit as bonus for arena, but Y!Tiki which is 5* exclusive.

I have no defense ploy, I actually don't think I have anyone with a ploy skill (just the attack ploy seal that my Sanaki is using). I'm going to have him use Durandal, since I tend to keep people with personal legendary weapons using their default weapon. And yeah, 29 resistance is actually higher than what some of my mages have, so I think I'll just keep him with -res then. Thanks.

A Grand Hero Battle for Ira is likely considering she follows Navarre's footsteps.

Since most of everything from the supposed leak is true, I actually think Arvis really is going to be the GHB. I'm not sure what their gonna do with Ayra, Tempest Trial? Probably. It's certainly an interesting situation.

Weird thought while looking at Ayra's...

Spoiler

stats, but would a Fury 3, Renewal 3 tank build work well with her? I feel like a lot of people would go on the full offensive, but her stats remind me of +Spd Selena if she had way less resistance. Actually, she would be closer to a +Spd Minerva or Saber, but anyway. Assuming it's not a mistake and she actually has 163 BST or that she'll still retain a similar stat spread even after dropping down 5-6 points, with Fury 3 and her sword, she'd have 41/43/34/24 bulk which isn't as good magically compared to a +Spd Selena having 27 to 31 resistance depending on if she's -Res or not. Compared to +Spd Selena and might as well, specifically a +Spd, -Res Selena who would have 37/41/35/27 bulk, Ayra would have much higher HP and because of her sword, higher speed for lower resistance. It would even out sort of; Ayra's magical bulk would be 65 total and 46x2 to Selena's 65 total and 46x2. If Selena were +Spd, -HP instead, she'd have 65 total and 48x2 magical bulk.

Anyway, the reason why I'm considering this is because of Ayra's Blade having built-in "Swift Blade", a speed version of Heavy Blade and Ayra having a not just a speed-based special, but an exclusive, 2 cooldown speed-based special with Regnal Astra so her damage output could be pretty high while being pretty tanky. Granted, she'd only get 17 additional damage from Regnal Astra, the same amount of damage from Bonfire for 1 less cooldown, but I could if I wanted to, give her Ignis for 27 additional damage. It would "waste" her default skill set which are good, but I don't know, doing something different with her would be nice and it would clear up some of the space in my barracks. One Fae for Renewal 3, Hinata for Fury 3, whoever to give her an assist and C-skill, and if i really wanted to give her Ignis, a Henry or F!Robin, would be 4 to 5 less units sitting around doing nothing.

Also, I just realized that Ayra's stats of 41 HP, 33 Atk, 37 Spd, 31 Def, and 21 Res is kind of close to that what if Owain showed up being a stupid bulky speed tank I thought about with one of his stat spreads being like 41 HP, 25 Atk, 38 Spd, 28 Def, 28 Res give or take some HP for defense and resistance or vice versa. And freakishly enough, a Missiletainn that had +3 speed which is what Ayra's Blade is, but better with its built-in "Swift Blade 3". Difference is mainly that Ayra dumped her resistance into attack and defense, but that sort of is made up with her boosted BST.

@DehNutCase, thoughts on using Ayra as a grindy tank like Selena?

I really should be sleeping right now...

So this happened:

 

I’m going to promote a Subaki soon™ specifically for her, as well as eventually do the squad assaults for the seals.

Oh my.

Only 6027 SP? Only Squad Ace A level 1? Not +10 yet? Guess you're not a real Sharena fan after all.

I always approve of spending rare units and lots of feathers for favorite units, so this is cool to see. I agree with SatsumaFSoysoy though, that Subaki needs to die yesterday.

You and me both. Yet here I am, spending Stamina Pots to get Tailtiu some SP.

Was not expecting Arden. My word is he ugly - they managed to make him uglier than in his sprite of FE4.

Good to see him, though. If the blank spot in the catalogue is Arvis (which seems likely) then it has, at least, balanced out the males and females.

Ayra looks so pretty. Can't wait to have her as a unit. Sigurd has also come home to me very quickly, which has made me happy. Hope I have this much look on the possible Halloween banner :D

I was hoping she would be the TT unit so I could get her at 5*. Not that excited for another 5* armour, but oh well. Can't have everything. I'm betting she'll be a GHB and Arden the reward for TT.

Okay, boss:

 

@GuiltyLove and @DefaultBeep too.

Jeez I forgot how much SP Quick Riposte actually costs.

But now she is beautiful. I hesitate to say perfect, because they may yet release a way to merge the Askr trio, but for now she looks wonderful.

Now you can get to work on Celica! Don't want to have her feel too inadequate compared to her lover.

As I already mentioned previously, Clive was made obtainable almost a full month after he was first implemented. There is nothing stopping them from implementing a Grand Hero Battle character several weeks before the Grand Hero Battle hits.

Basically, we'd have Alvis's Grand Hero Battle when the current Bound Hero Battle ends, then the upcoming re-run, then Ira's Grand Hero Battle.

The fact that the data mines did not find a map for Ira is a point in this theory's favor, actually. It'll probably be implemented with the expected Halloween banner in two weeks.

I'm really glad Ayra isn't summonable, my orbs are now minimal.

I'll just wait for daily orbs for now to get at least one Genealogy character for a future TT or another dancer (at least the new units will be there after the banner ends)

Pleased as punch. Not a dime spent on this banner and I think I had the best luck yet. 5 5* in the span of 70 orbs. +Def/-Res Sigurd, +Res/-Def Cordelia, a Fae for merging, +Spd/-Atk Tailtiu, and +Res/-Atk Deirdre. Horrible natures all around, but they'll do.

Right...forgot about Ninian as well. So that actually makes 6.

I’m not getting a Genealogy character with my luck. I think I’m stuck with Seliph for the tempest.

By the way, is this blue mage supposed to represent Azelle who specialises in fire? The brave axe cavalier is obviously Lex:
