Sanaki looks amazing! Lots of stat boosts.

The 75 orbs I currently have plus whatever else I get before the 21st better not disappoint me.

That Feint ability is interesting (if you use a buff ability or receive it, spd-7 to enemies in line with you), it's like they're looking for extra motivations to use buffs in the assist slot... but moving units out of harms way seems always better.

Got my bride Ninian, but no luck with goth bride yet. Most of my re-rolls didn't even have red orbs. Sigh.

Still the same bad luck with most rolls not having red orbs at all. However, I got pity broken with a 5* Soleil (merge fodder, as I already had her), a 4* Ares (wanted him in the last banner but not enough to throw orbs at red) that I will likely promote, a 4* male Morgan that I was going to promote, but thankfully didn't, because I got a 5* in the next round.

I wasn't going for Sanaki due to the weird age thing, but I got her on accident when there was no red. Also got the new Olwen, 5*. So, not bad for spending more than half my orbs, but I'm going to keep trying tomorrow. I got a regular Tharja at one point and couldn't help but laugh. At least this banner lasts a month. I'm thinking of maybe waiting until which legendary units are announced (starts May 30th I think) and seeing how I do there before trying again.

I pulled on Red and Blue going for both brides, ended up with a regular Ninian (second one), a Male Morgan, and then Karel as my 5 star pulls. No brides. Also secretly was hoping I'd pull an Ayra as a pity-breaker on red, but there are so many red units that's pretty unlikely!

Damn. The sad thing about the regular Ninian was that I was hoping for last year's bride banner to come back for the TT, like the spring units briefly did, but instead the new banner is their normal alts, so that Ninian is included. Already have everyone. Guess that saves my orbs.

Oh right, yeah that hurts since last year's brides had some skills I wanted to pilfer (Dazzling Staff mainly).

I had a bit of trouble completing that quest to beat the third paralogue stage with a lance ally. With tomes of three colours and a dancer it was hard to bait without getting colour advantaged. In the end I had to catapult Spring!Sharena forward to one shot Ninian and make the fight a lot more predictable.

Oh snap, paralogues. I gotta go grab them orbs.

Glad the seasonal banner is 30 days (less now) 'cause it'll take about that long to scrape up fresh orbs and for any luck at all to come around.

In stealth FEH news, Ares got demoted to 4-star pullable with the brides banner. People are freaking out because he has a super-powerful A skill and it's inheritable from him at 4-stars!

Brazen Atk/Def 3
At the start of combat, if unit's HP <= 80%, grants Atk/Def+7 during combat.

So it's stronger than deathblow and armoured blow combined, and works in player and enemy phase requirinly only that you're a little bit hurt. I'm in a bit of choice paralysis around who to give it to, since it seems really powerful but a lot of my teams try to stay healthy. My current frontrunner is regular Sharena who is running a brash/desperation build so wants to sit under 50%.

Yep, I got one the first day. I think I'm going to promote mine, though. I guess I'll feed the skill if I get another.

I kept fishing in red whenever I got a few orbs together, and another pity breaker - this time Lucina! Sword!Lucina is my first Lucina so I guess I'll train her up.

Her IV is +HP/-Res which is pretty mediocre but whatever I ain't complaining.

Nice get! I've pushed Lucina up to 40 so she's going to be my Sailor Mars in Ayra's absence. That weapon refine is real nice (+4 to all stats if next to ally).

Oh sweet, they did bring the old bride banner back.

But my free pull had no blue orbs... I wanted Charlotte. Speaking of, why don't we have a normal Charlotte yet? She's badass.

With the old bride banner showing up I dropped some dollars to fish for Lyn. I ended up getting her pretty quickly, so I pulled the other orbs on that screen and got Bride!Caeda... then went back to the new bride banner with my pretty high pity rate, and finally pulled Tharja. Again I kept fishing on the other orbs and got Sanaki too! Now I'm bride rich lol.

Oh damn, that's some good luck! I like Caeda and she was my first decent blue mage. I am now swimming in blue mages, however, so she's not my first choice anymore by a long shot, but she was my only one for a long time.

Sanaki is in a similar spot for me. Her skills are interesting (def/res+6 to unit and target if a movement power is used on or by her), but green mages are waaay overstocked for me as I've mentioned before. Caeda and Tharja could see use though, since my blue and red mages are less diverse.

Caeda is even +SPD/-HP which is a good IV, certainly better than Tharja's +RES/-ATK.

New Tempest Trial has started, featuring Groom!Marth and Atk/Def, Spd Smoke, and Flier Formation seals. The flier formation one is going to be interesting on any flying dancer, and means any flier can take flier buffs in their C slot and still get this move bonus. I'm finding this trial pretty easy too, not even using an endurance team I'm running Fjorm/Kagero/Soleil/Ninian for them bonus points.

Yeah, I just swapped a random person on an old team with regular Ninian for the bonus, and usually all 4 of my characters are still alive at the end. I'm even training a team that isn't fully leveled yet after the bonus points are done, that way I'm still getting points but also leveling a team that needs it, and that's way more fun than the training tower.

Already got groom Marth this morning but haven't trained him yet. I have him, Sigurd, Ishtar, and green mage Olwen on deck.

New legendary hero is another red sword Ryoma. I still don't have the original. But this one is flying and also has the distant counter weapon, so I want him because I don't have a flying red with any sort of distance yet.

Other red: Sigurd (just got on accident and don't need) and Tiki (adult? Can't tell. I have the young version at 5* but not adult but to be fair they look so similar).

Blue: Fjorm (ugh, she was free), Christmas male Robin (need!), Hardin (have).

Green: Christmas Chrom (need!), Gunnthra (still fucking need!), New Years Azura (need!)

Colorless: Innes (have), Grima female Robin (have), New Years Takumi (have).

So yeah, I'll be focusing on green with red as a backup.

I wouldn't mind getting that Azura but otherwise I'll probably keep stockpiling my orbs.

Azura's almost redundant now that I have flying Ninian but I've been trying for Gunnthra from the start. She'll make the blessed wind gardens easier, for sure.

Edit: New update coming with... accessories? It'll be interesting to see how those differ from seals. I also feel like it'll make infernal maps even harder, if the enemies are wearing them too.
