I've been doing the chains during the double SP weekends, using teams that need work learning their inherited skills and such. I still struggle with squad assaults, though. I don't have the good seals that come from them, at least. I always get right to the end and lose someone :/

Nothing But Myrrh is the name of my new rap-rock Christmas album.

I pulled that weird cavalry archer Roy but he looks like a giant doofus so I doubt I'll ever use him.

Aww, I want him because he's basically another Bow Lyn but doesn't count against the no duplicate rule if I want 2 bow horsies in my party.

Supporting Hardin in the new voting battle. He's losing :/

I'm supporting Arvis, because I don't know much about FE lore, but Arvis beating Sigurd is kind of amusing to me.

Last 20 orb hurrah. Got L!Ephraim on my first pull (yay!) and was wondering if I should stop there or keep going. Fuck it, might as well not waste the bonus. 2nd pull was L!Ike, so my 3rd duplicate/merger this run. Rest of the orbs were green so I was hoping the luck would continue with Hector, but nein. Still, 2/5 ain't bad.

Edit: having a TON of fun with my latest level up team! L!Ephraim, S!Tana, Nanna (promoted) and Michalis (promoted). Ephraim and Tana both have skills that keep themselves healed pretty well, while Nanna fills in the gaps and has the potential to heal the whole party at once, as well as herself when she heals others. Michalis has a natural Iote's Shield and barely takes any damage from arrows at all. Tanking the shit out of everything with these guys.

I tried out Micaiah and I think I can actually work with her -ATK since she has that duel effective tome. Her birb is very cute!

Now that Arvis is down I'm team Moustache in the Voting Gauntlet.

What actually happens when someone wins? I see people support fighters that they have, is that just because you can get more points by fielding the fighter in question?

Nope. It's purely for fun. You get the participation rewards for completing the quests, of course, but winning nets a mere 500 feathers on top of everything else.

Edit: Also, thank you, FC. I'm getting your spring Sherena a lot in my battles!

Ahh a Serra banner! I threw my orbs at it and was pity-broken by a flying Hinoka and second Nanna. Probably I shouldn't have gone deep here since I'm chasing a +ATK Serra but it tempted me so.

The flying Hinoka is going to be great though, maybe replaces H!Nowi in my flier team though that might make it too physical heavy and leaves me with no reds.

I would kill for a Kinshi Hinoka (not saying flying Hinoka as her original is a flyer as well, though I need her too).

Right, I never got regular Hinoka so I forgot she's always been a flier!

I'm thinking now that since I have two Nannas that she can sub in and replace Priscilla in my cavalry team, since Priscilla is one of the few units I still run at 4 star and have been dragging my heels (heals?) about upgrading.

Nanna seems better than Priscilla so far, in my limited experience with her. I have both at 5 star and I'd use Nanna myself if given the choice, even though I haven't learned all her skills yet.

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?

Well, there were 2 summer banners last year, so it only makes sense to have 2 this year. Last year had a theme, though (Ylisse for one and Nohr for the other) while these characters have been mixed this time. Can't tell who the silhouettes are.

We really need a seasonal Anna, she's so left out! Neither of those silhouettes look like her though.

Yeah, though there will likely be 4 new characters. They only previewed 2 last time, as well.

Edit: I'm at a cross-roads. About 17 orbs... pull for Hinoka some more or wait to see who the new seasonal characters are?

👏 LET 👏 ANNA 👏 HAVE 👏 A 👏 SEASONAL 👏 VARIANT 👏

I think the Hinoka banner lasts another few days/week so you could wait, though 7/10 is maybe a slight stretch.

So, people predicted Camilla and Linde and they were right. People were also hoping for Takumi but we already have 3 Takumis (same with Camilla and Tiki) so... meh. I don't feel bad that I tried and failed for Hinoka again before seeing this.

That said, this Takumi is also a flying bow user, so I guess going for him is kind of the same as going for Hinoka. Linde is interesting as a cavalry knife user so I might just run colorless on this.

So desperation built into weapons now, that's interesting. I don't know that we needed a beach version of younger Tiki, but at least she's covered up. Also her stats seem super high across the board.
