Since I got Bow!Hinoka I was looking at her dual-effective weapon, and remembering that Micaiah also has the dual-effective weapon... so I decided to try to make a 'super-effective' team.

Bow!Hinoka = Armor / Flier
Micaiah = Armor / Horse
Lucina = Dragon

I think that's all the effective types... not sure who the fourth will be. Am I missing any?
Realised that Caeda is also Armor / Horse effective, and fills the current vs green weakness so she could be a go if I pull a decent IV on her (currently only have +DEF/-SPD). Kagero or at least her dagger is certainly a solid option though, especially since I have a close counter/vantage setup already.

Alternately alternately, apparently Halloween!Sakura's paddle is effective vs mages which is an interesting 'super-effective' trait. I don't have her and probably won't till Halloween I guess.

I think she came back once for a legendary banner already, so she'll be back again, I'm sure.

Still no luck with Tiki or Takumi even after the 10 gift orbs :/

Also, annoyed by Tana's portrayal in the tap battle. They made her really weak and Innes had to save the day but like... Tana is normally a very strong character in her own right. She's one of the best units in Sacred Stones and both versions of her in FEH are awesome, so I don't get why they chose to do that to her. Innes is fine in FEH (apparently his summer alt is too) but in Sacred Stones I don't even use his ass because he's a pre-promote.

Yeah the double-boss where the first one was really weak was fun the first time around, but they didn't even do it last time so I don't know why they did that to Tana here.

Yeah, but weren't the knockouts stronger characters, with Barth remaining?

New Tempest Trial has started, the last map is a bit tricky unless you're flier emblem. I was using a mixed team since that's where my Summer!Corrin is at the moment, but I prob should just drop her into a flier team and make it a lot less fiddly.

Yeah, having a mostly easy time with it and beating it with all 4 characters alive for the most part so far. Using Summer Tana as my bonus character, so yay flier, and Michalis is the character I have as her support.

I've been letting autobattle do this one for me while I play Berseria. :pac Almost halfway through the trial already, got both Marths and merged them into my previous, so she's now at +3.

The autobattler is dumb and will usually lose one or two characters by the end of the trial even on recommended difficulty but it's still good for about 400-500 points every five minutes or whatever and I'm sitting on a mountain of stamina potions so why not.

Yeah autobattle is rough because even if you have strong enemy phase units like dragons, it loves to just single one out and launch them forward without support.

In new S-Support news, I like the idea of soft-in-the-middle Hardin supporting Henry's Vampire cosplay form of self expression.

I've legit seen the autobattler lock archers into melee range until they die 'cause I guess it can't handle chokepoints. :pacdown

y'all should really be following vilkalizer on Tumblr if yer not already, their sprite edits and animations are unreal.

Didn't realize new heroes were coming on the 20th and I blew 25ish orbs trying to get summer Tiki. Oh well, worth it as she's top tier according to the tier list I use that finally updated today. Summer Takumi is on par with bow Hinoka, so that's cool. Waiting for the 2x SP weekend to level him.

Reminds me, I fought a Camilla emblem and Lyn emblem team in area recently. Camilla emblem actually beat me, but it was during arena assault and not my best team. Still, didn't expect that. I need to work on my Takumi emblem team now...

Summer Camilla's art used in the Tap Battles is really pretty.

So, what's all this about Character Emblem teams? Do you get some kind of bonus, or is it just for kicks, like running all white mages in FF1?

Just for kicks. Now many characters have enough alts that you can do a full team of 4 of the same character without breaking the duplicate hero rule.

Edit: Examples-

Lyn (actually 5 options)- Regular (sword), Bride, Cav/Bow, Leg/Bow, Love abounds (blue mage).
Camilla- Regular (axe), Spring, New Years, Summer
Takumi- Regular, Fell/evil, New Years, Summer
Tiki- Young, Adult, Adult (summer), Young (summer)

I'm probably missing someone.

Hector is close with 3 options but they're all green axe users... Robin works if you count the male and female versions as the same people. Same with Corrin.

I think the last time they did this they announced a bunch of new modes? Wonder what they'll have for us this time.

Yeah, I'm still struggling with some of the blessed garden maps. Probably due to the way I horribly balanced my blessing distribution, though.

I feel like the 4th space in the "events" area is always unused, though, so maybe it's something else that happens once a month.

I've done all the blessed gardens so far, some of them have been real pains. I really need to catch up on chain challenges and squad assaults though, I've done like 1 or 2.

Are there any pugilists in Fire Emblem? I was thinking fist fighters might be a fun colourless melee class.

I tend to peace-out from the garden maps (and most other maps honestly) somewhere in the middle of the lunatic tier.

Guess I have the patience to absent-mindedly tap the autobattle button every few minutes while I do other things 'til it eventually reaches the end of the tempest trials, but I totally don't have the patience to solve the tougher stuff in earnest, most of which are basically puzzle maps, and puzzles just ain't my thing.

Yeah I feel like some of the content is balanced around +10 units to give the veterans a challenge, so I don't sweat too hard if I can't beat some of the 40+ maps.
