Yeah, since I noticed it was low anyway, I guess it really won't matter. 20 speed is his boon, and that's... too low to matter still. Mine is +res. With his distant counter effect, maybe I actually got lucky.

I got Fallen!Tiki out of the banner, she's +ATK/-RES which isn't super, since DC units kind of want solid RES in order to take magic hits.

I'm considering putting Fort Res on her, which would negate her ATK boon with -3 but counter her RES bane... dunno. For now i just dropped Noontime on her so that every counter hit she does heals her - potentially this is a way to keep her over 50% hp (special fighter) and below 80% (brazen atk/spd).

Her free +4 to all stats and movement C slot is great though.

The Delthea GHB was giving me trouble until I realised I could zoom up and take out the panic ploy healer, then just let Panne do all the work.

Oh nice. Mine isn't a +7, though, so I'll have to come up with something else.

Any blue unit with solid mixed bulk can probably do it, but yeah pretty much every aspect of my Panne build came into play there. I took Aversa to try and debuff them, but looking back my Aversa didn't have enough HP to really affect them.

That reminds me, I could use pointers on grinding grails since Panne is probably my next big merge project and I've already hit the 300 grail wall on summons :pacdown

- Git gud at Aether Raids
- Max out the bonds in that thing where you make fwiends with 4 people on the new banner
- Be grateful they're giving out 100 grails as compensation for an AR bug once they fix it.

in case anyone was wondering Dorothea is apparently a former songstress, which... I guess may as well be as close as Fire Emblem gets to "former pop idol" without doing Tokyo Mirage Sessions again

I got a Nina for my free pull in the latest new power banner (instead of Faye) which is fine, because I don't have her either. Since she's into shipping guys around her, I'm going to throw her into my aether resort to soak up the Ike x Soren feels XD

Haha yeah my Aether defense for a while was Nina hiding in a corner with Alfonse/Silas more central.

I'm always bad at guessing these so I won't even try. That said, usually they reveal only 2 of 4 so Rinea is still possible. Some people are saying Fjorm for the right figure and that makes sense. Left looks like a groom to me.

Edit: Er, stage right? I'm drunk and what are directions?

I'm trying to figure out if the left figure has animal ears or horns or something, which could make her a beast unit or maybe one of the Muspell folks. Totes agree that the other is probably a dude with long hair. A Lucius or a Seliph or whoever.

This is... an interesting banner. Charlotte aside, these banners are usually alts, but here we are with 3/4 of the units being new to the game completely.

As much as I like FE9/10, though, I never cared for Tanith or Sigrun much. Gonna skip.

Some people have been excited for Pent but I have no idea who he is. I like his weapon, though.

Looks like people were right about Fjorm. She's the most appealing unit to me on this banner, but I already have Sakura as a flying healer, so I'm going to save my orbs for the mythic banner.

No word on the free TT unit yet as far as I can tell.

Fjorm's weapon being an anti-dancer tech is kinda cool, but yeah not a priority for me. I have Witchy!Mia as a flying healer and she does great work. Wah!

Louise (Pent's wife) is the free unit and she's basically a free Bow!Lyn. I guess that's not considered overpowered anymore. I was also wondering why I knew nothing about Pent or Louise despite playing FE7 and it's because they join super late in the game; probably after where I got stuck. But, anyway, her art is great so she looks like a pretty cool free unit. No word on her skills yet.

So much for getting a groom banner, 1/5 is worse than last time right?

Who'd bother pulling on a non-Tokyo Mirage Sessions banner anyway?

Only because it was 1/4 last time. But, this is better in the sense that there's no child involved XD Weird that 4/5 of the characters are alts without regular versions already in the game, though. I wonder if that will become more common.

Oh, was it 3 brides and then free Marth? At least Love Abounds banners had more balance :pac

Yeah, the last Love Abounds/Greil's Devoted was mostly dudes, much to the delight of Ike/Soren fans like me. I'm kind of glad there's no bride Rinea so I can save my orbs. Valentine's Soren should be coming back in the June legendary/mythic banner and I need him.

Also, gotta say that I'm glad I promoted my fell Delthea. She's a bonus arena unit right now and performed very well today. Promote her and give her desperation in her B slot if you haven't already.

Pulled a Pent with my freebie. No idea what to do with him right now. I kinda have more blue tomes than I really need, even cavs.
