I don't know that we needed a beach version of younger Tiki, but at least she's covered up.
My thoughts exactly. Didn't really look at her stats before now... Oh, red flying dragon. Hmm, I think that's a new type.

I like it when people come up with stats like these:

Linde vs Spring Kagero: -3/-1/+1/-2/-1
Tiki vs Female Grima: 0/+1/+2/+2/+1
Takumi vs Wings of Fate Hinoka: +3/+3/0/+4/-10
Camilla vs Summer Corrin: +5/+2/+2/+1/-7

Grima and Corrin are pretty much worse than their newer counterparts, Takumi vs Hinoka is pretty even in my opinion, and Linde loses stats due to being cavalry. Of these I think I'd pull a little bit for Camilla but otherwise I don't feel like I need anyone.

You can now do a Camilla Emblem team with flier buffs and all colours covered, that's kinda fun.

Okay, I need this Camilla and New Year Camilla so Operation Oppai can be complete.

I only have regular Camilla so I'm a long way from Camilla Emblem. You can also run Takumi emblem (all colourless) or Tiki emblem (all red dragons), but Camilla's colour spread makes her team actually pretty viable.

I think my vanilla Camilla is at a +1 or maybe +2 merge. Usually in my flyer team but never gets much use otherwise.

Summer Tiki from last year is green, but yeah, still too much of one color for my taste. If I get Takumi, I can do Takumi emblem.

And I'm going to go for him. I figure I can try for him, still have the chance of getting Linde, and also have the chance of getting "pity broken" with kinshi Hinoka anyway.

Yeah that seems like a good banner to pull colourless on!

I forgot that the other Summer!Tiki wasn't a dragon type. It's always a little weird to me when dragon characters use regular weapons.

They've released the details for the next Tempest Trials, it looks like Masked!Marth is the reward unit, which is both cool for people like me that weren't playing when she first released, and also it gives hope to people who run TT units that they will potentially get more copies to merge!

Flashing Blade as a seal is pretty cool for your super-fast heroes, people seem excited about Spd Ploy being a seal also, partly because it means you don't have to vore one of Arvis' family to give it to him. I apparently already ate someone to do so, so perhaps I'll put that on Julius since he has my highest base RES of 41.

Oh, sweet. Now I can take my existing Masked!Marth from a +1 to a +3.

An interesting unit from a build perspective 'cause aside from her Falchion she comes as a total blank slate, so what you do with her is entirely up to you. She's a pretty solid offensive healbot if you give her that exact Vanilla Lucina build. Relatively inexpensive to do, too - probably.

She's been a repeat reward before. I didn't bother getting the 5-star version of her the first time because I saw she had no skills and wasn't interested. Kicking myself for that now, of course, but I got her the second time around. No idea if I sent my 4-star versions home or what... wasn't thinking of characters with merges in mind back then.

Hoping for a repeat Tobin reward. He tiers low and apparently sucks but I somehow missed that TT entirely despite playing every day as I do not have him at all. I guess that makes sense, though. Just noticed those new skill test maps. How long have those been there?

Oh, they added a new quest category full of tutorial-like quests with preset teams, which kinda seem to turn into more complicated and specialized stuff as they move away from the basics. So if you've ever been confused about the exact effect of skill X, there's probably a quest for that now, tucked away with dozens of others.

Even if you don't really need the refresher each of these looks to be worth either 300 feathers or 1 orb so they're totes worth doing if you have the time just 'cause there's so damn many of 'em.

I also like the QOL stuff they added to better communicate quest progress.

A couple of days, it's mostly feather rewards but there are a couple orbs scattered in there too.

I pulled a few times and got Summer!Camilla, so now I can throw my drink at people. Considering putting her into my Charlotte/Spring!Alfonse spoon & food team. Neutral IVs which is fine with me after all the -ATK lately. I just need a cowboy hat accessory and I can go Camill-Iga.

There are new unique weapon refines too, if you missed that news:
Nephenee = Slaying spear upgrades to +4 SPD/DEF if foe initiates and effective vs armor
Katarina = Owl tome powers up and can gain dual ploys allowing her to go Arvis mode
Titania = Emerald Axe upgrades in power and gains Res Tactic

Katarina is the only one I *used* to use, but I refined her old weapon and don't have enough points for the base new one, and now I have better red mages. Hmm, maybe a project for a double SP weekend when I have nothing better to do. My Titania is garbage; couldn't even get her to 40 naturally. Maybe mine has the worst IVs or something.

Yeah, I really wanna like Titania more than I do just 'cause her design is great, but she's not quite there yet. Still maybe my best green cav, kinda by default I guess, 'cause nearly all my greens seem to be standard axe infantry.

Of those three Neph is probably easily the best first pick for weapon upgrades.

The one I don't have...

Anyone get anything from the new summer banner? I sure didn't...

Nah, not yet. I might try for that Linde just 'cause a dagger cav could be an interesting niche.

Got a neutral IV Camilla but it's cleaned me out again. The new story chapter is pretty fun.

I actually found a place for Katarina in my food team, I've strapped Atk Tactic onto her but she's also pretty decent for baiting with her owl tome boosting up her defensive stats a bit with some hot positioning.

Well I have Bridal!Charlotte and Spring!Alfonse both with giant spoons. Charlotte especially has a hit effect of bits of cake when she hits people. Add Camilla to the mix and that's 3/4 that use food items to attack. I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them right now. There's the mochi dagger Sakura, but I don't have her. I do have two Kageros with carrots...

Can you think of any other food related weapons?

Ooh interesting, she's red too which fills that gap. Do I want to spend more orbs though, hmmmm...

--edit--
No wait I got my Tikis crossed again... you even said she's an Axe unit lol!

Summer Tana's tome is a fruit tome I think, and Leo's tomes are named after tomatoes? (I don't have either Leo but I've heard). It's NY Takumi with the mochi dagger, not Halloween Sakura (I have both units and Sakura's weapon is a Kitty Paddle).

Oh right, I can picture the paddle now I think about it. Summer!Tana huh, I'll give that a shot.
