Aether Raids General Thread

not seeing the problem there. Just park legendary Ike in the middle of it and all the horsies will autodie to his Radiant Aether

I faced the exact same map but it had Veronica Reinhard Brave Lyn Prisicilla Sothis and that other bow girl. Didnt go well for that defense map. My Dancing Dagger Olivia basicly killed half of the enemys on this map while Eir took care of the other ones. I am not saying its not an effectiv defene, but prepared people will blow it up, but its a really mean/cheap setup. Prolly will get nerfed by IS anyway.

Yeah I am not expecting to get a lot of wins, already have ran into a couple super tanks that just soak everything. The idea is to get kills due to not being able to hide. Goal is at least 1 kill per map. And that it has been doing really well at so far this week.

I am curious on your Ike build. The builds I ran in the simulator tend to give Claude the Victory as long as Cunning is active. Which is why my team is just saturated with Chills/Sabotages/Dagger Effect/Yune Chaos/Smokes/Rallies. Plus Quad Luna Sacae Brave Lyn just slaughters him unless he runs Null-C :D.

 

Edit- at work it occurred that I had forgotten he was a bonus unit. Also forgot that a lot of folks run double Eir. That would probably flip the Claude engagement.
Edit 2- Looks like if I change up his seal to ATK/SPD +2 he might still be able to take the win, though that is far too close to comfort.But then who gets Chill ATK? I suppose I could swap it to Brave Lyn. But this discussion indicates I kinda need to give her a speed seal. Looks like Ike can actually avoid her quad if he is highly merged or is +SPD or is carrying darting stance.

I got a bit conceited with Kronya. She worked so awesome last week and this feels like some teams made adjustment there. Or I just meet the wrong teams. Also need to at least check if there is a unit with Hardy Bearing around. Also I guess it does not hurt to bring one Possessed Takumi with Skadi along. 

But overall she still rocks, I just have to get used to be not totally brainless with her and using her like good ol Surtr.

 Now that my Dark Def Team is set i am thinking of building Kronya for My Astra Def Team. She can synergize well with Duma and Eir doesnt run much during Astra season + there is a 2/3 chance you destroy the opponents healing Tower with Duma and the catapult (more like 1/2 because the healing tower is usually placed in the 4 midsquares).

But i need to see first what the 2. Astra defense mythic does. If its another colorless i need to think about it.

Well. . . . The successes are rolling in after some changes to push my Attack stats even higher after Hilda's talk of Vanguard Ike. Sadly this means I have completely neglected Sue. She has a whole terrifying 36 attack now since I dumped the ATK boosting seal she had elsewhere to try and insure kills from my main killers. Have noticed two weaknesses though, three if you count Sue being there at all.

1 - I knew Lyn had a weakness against special blockers since she relies so heavily on Quad Luna, but turns out Steady Stance 4 shuts down Claude too. I was really hoping he would be able to punch through. Going to have to come up with a method of breaking those who block specials from going off. Or put both Brave Lyn and Claude on the same side. Swap her and Louise. But then Louise and Sue are going to be the clear side to bait. And putting Lyn and Claude on the same side may not matter. The foe could still do what they did here. Leave a sacrificial unit in Claude's range and then they won't double team the tank even if they could bring it down together since Claude will take the easy target. The most recent defense had a Fjorm that could wall either, but not both in one turn. But of course I have them split up, so she didn't have to as long as she wasn't shoved too far forward. Still won though since Fjorm and Legendary Azura could not beat down Yune and Sue. 2 blues vs 2 greens. Great match up, yes?

2 - I really need to read up on Reciprocal Aid AI use. Apparently it is better to quad for 0 damage on a steady stance 4 user, fully charging their special, then it is to heal poor Claude who has been hammered down to 18 HP. That would have changed the play a bit. Not a lot, but Claude would eat up two unit turns to drop, instead of one. And that can be rather significant.

Since I got a success early today, I am protected until the end of the season. Which means that I am ending this season in Tier 25. Yay!

Next season will have new bonus units. For my bonus ally, I will between Male Byleth, Fjorm and Claude. I may use Claude, since I really like his playstyle.

Next Season will also be Water/Fire, so... Azuras everywhere!

Played sloppily this week, which means I'm dropping out of top 3,000 for the first time (currently 2,856 and dropping about 200 places each hour). Lost a match due to choosing the wrong team and lost 2 other matches due to having the wrong skills equipped.

It's dumb that the game lets you lock your defense team, but not your offense teams (or even your Arena defense team for that matter).

Sigh.

What will likely be my last Defensive match for the week was a Kronya user who got absolutely destroyed. He won but I lost no lift because his whole team was massacred besides his Super Saiyan Lucina~

Not my best week but it's Light Season so I don't care LEL~ Could still get Top 10K~

Relatively chill week, -100 on D total, -60 on O due to a few brain farts

T27 acquired yet again, love Light week due to how tanky it makes Winter Cecilia and Surtr.
It's a lot more fun when you don't have to worry about calculating damage against most opponents.

-33 Defense in Total. Yep that Yune&Sothis Defense Team with Seliph Kagero BrideFjorm and Brave Ike is comeing in handy. Supertanking is kinda iffy due to Kageros Null-Follow up Sturdy Impact setup and Seliph just has Miracle from the get go lol

@mampfoidDid you actually manage to beat my Map without any lost unit?

Nice, I always get the full -240.

Didn't try again, so no.

I was able to upgrade my fortress D to lv. 4 awhile back, but my defensive team hasn't been doing all that much better since. A little, maybe, but I guess lv. 5 is still really needed.

Astra week still sucks for me though, ended up using all three ladders today. -_- Still wish we could have more or at least a sixth offensive team member. But it is what it is. I'm just glad I can maintain tier 20 for now. I don't want to try for tier 21 until I've got more mythic heroes to use and until I get at least one Anima hero already. Really gotta try for Duma when he returns.

Weird question, perhaps: when you have the Tactics Room up, what tile do you like to put it on? I tend to go second-from-left in the hopes that it can cut an enemy team in half, but it does feel like it backfires occasionally.

I assume for this is for offense. I usually put it in the middle two rows, with a preference towards the right one. The idea is the same as yours, hoping to divide the enemy in half.

Third from the left~ I only use 3 Offensive Structures and I always change out that spot for the Bonus Structure~ And it's only because I need the other back slots open for Smiting on specific maps~

Finally got my Keaton up and running. I was trying to pick between Nailah and Hector for the DC source. Ended up deciding that someone else will probably want Null C Disrupt more in the future and Keaton is likely to just run DC/Vantage most of the time. Hector is a painful sacrifice, but my non-light weeks just keep hammering me badly. I really need a good feisty beast to give me a hand there since my tanks just don't seem to cut it without mythic boosts.

Of course if I could just get more teams like this

Then Seth could just take all of the Legion [of Doom] all by himself.


Also found an interesting Lilina in my defense listings. She actually came close to surviving the first two hits. Veronica had too much HP to lock down with their tactics room and did 11 damage to Lilina. Myrrh then walked up and hit for 31 damage. I would have been cursing up a fit if that had been my Lilina. I HATE getting hit for exact damage. That said I have no idea what this person was thinking. Were they just willing to lose a unit or two? Cause I can't see any way Lilina would survive. She was going to get hit by at least Veronica, Myrrh, Jakob, and Amelia. Speaking of Amelia. 4 cooldown. Does that mean I unlocked at some point and Aether'ed her again? She should be running Bonfire to threaten with a big counter right off.
