March's Legendary Hero - F!Robin: Fell Vessel, Flying Colorless Dragon (March 29 ~ April 3)

Recommended Posts

Damn, are we ever going to get Levin! Robin?

 

Still, I'm compel to see the silver lining. Hopefully F!Grima will have more info about their background, but I feel like M!Grima already said what needed to be said.

Zelgius: Not owned, want
Lute: Not owned, want
Sakura: Owned, hope to avoid
Nowi: Not owned, want
Tiki: Owned, dodging greens
Elise: Not owned, not interested (Nino Master Race)
Lucina: Owned, want merges
Lyn: Owned, want merges
Ike: Owned, want merges/fodder depending on boons/banes
Gunnthra: Owned, want merges
Fjorm: Owned, want merges
Robin: Not owned, want

Dodging green for these reasons:
1. I already have a 5*+10 Nino; an inferior green mage in Summer Elise would be redundant.
2. I already have Summer Tiki, but I hardly ever use her aside for Axe Valour. Extra copies would only be used for weapon fodder.

I'd like more Gunnthra merges, but the chances of getting either Elise or Tikini are too damn high in comparison. Not worth the risk.

Yep, that face is cool, while female Grimas face in her special art is a little awkward. The rest of male Grima (especially the Hand) is too much out of proportion for my liking. 

Yeah, I won’t deny that his art looks off in parts, particularly his hand and how it’s proportioned as you mentioned. Grima (F)’s art is more pleasant on the eyes, though her pose in her attacking art looks a bit weird to me.

She's a solid addition into flier emblem teams. If I do get her, I'd immediately put her in my flier emblem team

Oh, I’m not saying she’s a bad unit, only that for a “legendary” she seems less impressive that the non-legendary one.

So I decided on pulling order:

Colourless first and foremost. Sniping for it actually. Sakunyan is highest priority of any units in the game for me right now.

On boards with no colourless, I'll be pulling on a green orb, since I still don't have a Gunnthra and could use S!Tiki and S!Elise for SI.

Should there be no green or colourless, I'll be going red. My Y!Tiki could really use Warding Breath and a better H!Nowi sounds great (My current one being +HP -Spd..). Also don't have Zelgius yet.

Blue is also a good colour, since Fjorm is good for SI and I don't have either of the other two. Really, there is no outright bad colour for me here, just none as important as colourless.

Isn't she kind of winding up energy for the final strike? Should be common in Mangas (not a specialist though).

@Anacybele I do agree that this was really dumb on their part. I feel like they did this to calm the people who were mad that Male Robin was Grima when Female Robin was shown off more often to be Grima. One big problem I have with her is that she is a flyer unit cause she floats....what?

I think you're missing the point. She's not a flier because she floats. She floats because she's a flier.

Currently released legendary heroes: 2 infantry, 2 cavalry. It's only natural that they move onto the next movement type - fliers or armour. With this, two boxes have been ticked: Colourless hero, and a flier hero - both of which were missing until now.

People complaining that the first Grima wasn't female Robin. Now people are complaining about Female Grima. There really is no pleasing everyone.

- - -

Next legendary prediction: Green colour, either armour or flier.

I am complaining because she isn’t wearing her grandmaster outfit. For a “legendary” hero, they surely could have done a little bit more than to just rehash the existing sprite.

I think people just didn't want another Grima straight after the first one... and the nonsensical reason why two of the same dragon should have different coloured breath with no explanation.

I was personally hoping for a more exciting reason for a colourless dragon, whereas this feels more like a 'just 'cos' situation. Oh well. If I get her, then I won't be unhappy, she seems interesting.

Personally, I'm happy they didn't go with the outfit shown on the cards and stuck with her current outfit *shrugs*. They didn't do much to change Male Grima's clothing (except random pecs because... fanservice? That art is definitely not fanservice material xD ) so I didn't want them to change hers.

They didn't though.
As in, they didn't make her because of fan reaction/complaints that M!Grima was a thing.

We can tell since the full artwork of her that's been posted by the artist Chiko, is watermarked with "©2017 Nintendo / INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS" so F!Grima's art was planned far earlier than Male!Grima's banner went live for the public. 

Anyway, it will be interesting to see the watermarks on the artworks for the upcoming banners as they get posted - especially when we start seeing 2018 on the watermark since by then we will have a better grasp on how long developing a banner takes

This is definitely the best legendary banner so far. Only green seems to be the least worthwhile summoning, as I think Gunnthra is the only decent characters there. BUT OH MY GOD, FGRIMA IS THERE. Seems the only thing going against her is not being able to take advantage of weapon triangle, but she seems a little OP. She's a Grima, with a flyer killer on steroids skill by default,  and probably as strong as male..... with better mobility. Can you imagine her with Myrrh?

Oh. Chiko drew female Grima!? Guess that explains why the artwork is pleasantly familiar

Yup.^^

I saw the video thumbnail and went: "Hey, her eyes and hair are drawn similarily to PA!Olivia and Micaiah...is it...? Oh, it *is* Chiko's work."

My art senses really admire how Chiko renders motion and metal details in particular, and this art is no exception - there's an appropiate level of "Oomph" in F!Grima's poses. Me likey.

Not that M!Grima isn't levels of oomph too, it's just rendered differently. 
I really like the art for both tbh.

Legendary Ike: Can use a merge, will be arena core in earth season
Zelgius: Can use a merge, will be arena core if not earth season
Halloween Nowi: Will be fun with Escape Route
Fjorm: Can use a merge, will be arena core in water season
Lute: Can use the merge
Brave Lucina: Never got her before
Gunnthra: Could use the merge but have no interest in the other green units
Summer Tiki: No thanks (Wo Dao Spoon is better than One-Time-Fury Melon)
Summer Elise: No thanks (Building Soren and pulling for Spring Sharena)
Legendary Grima: Way to powercreep DC Iote's Shield Myrrh.
Halloween Sakura: Anti-magic weapon is always fun
Brave Lyn: Best case, upgrading from +Def -Res. Worst case, providing Swift Sparrow and saving Ayra's life.

Going for five 5-stars and quitting. I want to +10 an Askr Bunny and get one more 5-star after that.

Me: "i'm gonna be saving for Nanna in April"

Intelligent Systems: "Are you now?" they say as they reveal F!Grima.

Me: *inhales* "LET ME SAVE UP MY ORBS, PLEASE!"

My second color priority would be red. I don't care much about Nowi, but I wouldn't mind getting her. Got the other two, but I wouldn't mind another of each, specially Zelgius, since mine couldn't have gotten worse IVs :dry:

Green - The two Valors would be very nice. But I don't need a lot of them. Low to mid priority.

Red- I have a Lolicopter that is neutral offenses, but it would be nice to get a +SPD one. Not a priority though. I have BK. So Red is kinda a pass, though warding breath is always nice.

Blue- Lute and Brave Lucina. Have both. Both have decent boon/bane. Not a high priority. So blue is kinda a pass.

Colorless - Don't have Legendary Grima. Have both Lyn and Sakura. Sakura is -ATK though so a new one would be nice. Lyn is currently freebie neutral. Decent skills as well. About tied with green until the valors drop. Then higher.

Well my orbs are safe since while I would like flying Robin, I want H!Jakob more so I will keep saving until he returns.  Good luck to the people who are pulling.

Highly disappointed in this banner.

F!Robin should not be Robin's legendary form, and certainly not as Grima. 

Green is 2/3 seasonal, and therefore gets an automatic skip from me.

Red would be great, but the chance of getting an unwanted Nowi (my least favorite character in the entire franchise) kills it for me.

Blue is great.

Hahah, look at that. Grima is a Legendary Hero before Marth.

The irony is pretty hilarious.

I am super excited that it's F!Robin. I admit that I wish she wasn't Grima, but hey, I'll take what I can get. And she's Earth! I already have M!Morgan as Earth-blessed, so that works out so well. She can replace Legendary Ike on my Earth team, which already includes Myrrh. I don't have a flier team yet, but this is a good time to build one. I am sniping the hell out of Colorless, since I definitely want F!Robin, and I want B!Lyn as well. Wouldn't say no to an adorable Halloween Sakura either. After that... Well, I want another Fjorm so I can steal her ATK/DEF Bond, and another B!Lucina with a hopefully better nature than 'neutral'. I want Gunnthrá because I don't have her yet and I like the dream lady. And I want another L!Ike for his Warding Breath.

So that's every colour. Damn it. Good thing I have some orbs saved. Not a lot, but some! Hopefully I'll get lucky.

Anyways let’s see: 

Colorless: The color I’ll mainly be sniping for, as Grima, B!Lyn merges, and H!Sakura are all units I want and are in this color

Blue: Fjorm merges, and Lute. Lancina doesn’t really matter to me

Red: Ike would be warding Breath fodder, Nowi would Hone fliers or atk/res bond fodder, and Zelgius is meh to me

Green: Gunnthra merges. That is all

So, what are the odds of a legendary male Robin down the road?

Not sure. So far every legendary hero after Gunnthra is tied to a banner released during that month. If were not getting any normal banners after the next banner in April then my money's on Seliph being the next legendary hero.

Legendary heroes seem to go on forever since they're meant as reintroducing seasonals. Very iffy that Robin gets an alt. Lucina or Lyn are likelier to get one, but yeah. Eliwood, Alm, Corrin, Marth are also prime canditates before Robin.

I doubt Seliph of all people is getting one next. And the Robin's are considered separate entities according to the catalog (so people can stop complaining about six Robins). Besides, we still need a grandmaster.
