[Fire Emblem] Ah Yes, the Three Houses

I'm ready go tonight. There's a party, alright. We don't need the raisin for joy, oh yeah. Tick down to midnight.

I was playing while overseas, just not posting here so much. I'm pretty meh on the whole legendary banner this time around, I'm still trying to get Christmas!Eirika to try and build a everyone-has-the-same-attack-everyone-gets-buffed Christmas team. Pity rate is now 5.5% and if I get someone else I'm probably done trying.

Since I got pity broken by Nina earlier when drawing on this banner, I'm considering builds for her also. Apparently her optimal build is with a firesweep bow which is only on 5-star locked Faye (don't have) so I don't really have much plans except maybe a brave bow.

I'm also backing Fjorm, so that's cool. I haven't been focusing on FEH so much, but I still pop in most days.

Haven't had much luck on summons in a while unless you count pity breakers. I'm guessing that's how I ended up with Nina and the flying Olivia? Can't even remember now.
Neither one have been in recent banners, so that's likely the case, unless you've had them sitting around a while.

Got my summer Tiki, so I can finally stop throwing orbs at this legendary banner.

Nice! I got Winter!Eirika too, so I'm back to orb saving now.

Side note I really like Christmas!Tharja's voice work. At first I was like "normal girl" is a weird prefix for this outfit, but her VA forcing "good daaay" and "huzzah" is some top notch work as she apparently tries to impress Robin with faux niceness. Also one of her selection lines is "whaaaat" through gritted teeth, she's clearly having trouble with this persona.

Damn, I still want her really bad. I threw a few orbs at that banner for her today since I had a higher draw rate from before the legendary banner began. Got pity broken a 3rd time, this time with a duplicate Siegbert. It's just not meant to be, I guess.

But now I have a lot of 5* fodder laying around. Siegbert has Deathblow 3, but I'm not sure who to give it to. Helbindi has that weird arena infantry skill, which I don't think I'll put to good use, or Infantry Pulse 3. Katarina has Swift Sparrow 2. Or I can just merge them all and call it a day *¯\_(ツ)_/¯*

Going for Azura, pitty broken with Tropical Beauty! Camilla. I'll take it!

Edit: And another. No Azura for me.

I did the free draw on that new banner with L'Rachel etc, and got my first Innes who wasn't on that banner. Another character that I have no idea what to do with, but a nice surprise.

Heh, all I need is one more L'Rachel to complete my merge project...

I can't pull Virions for the life of me. It's so sad. I do have a +Whatever Narcian going on though, so that's nice.

Innes was always a pretty good infantry archer. He got a recent weapon refine, too, so he's worth using. That said, flying archers and Bow Lyn obviously outclass him. I use Leon more since he's one of my merge projects, but Innes' refined weapon and resistance are better.

Speaking of merge projects, I only need one more Reinhardt before my +10 Reindaddy is complete.

I didn't realise Innes was one of the special refines, he looks more useful than Jaffar who I tried to build up for a similar role (his voice is very Reaper which is fun).

Yay, they're all a new type and therefor a novelty. I'd be happy with any of them. Haven't played the game they're in since I've never had a Wii. But, my preference is with Nailah. I have 90ish orbs so woo.

I mean, not only is her design badass, but she seems the most useful, skill-wise.

It's weird because I see all these Twitter links in Korean but the English bios/skills are definitely out there already, so I'm not sure why it's so hard to find English screenshots to them.

They fliers can occupy a taken space?! Is that what I'm seeing there?

Edit: I want all four, but I must have Nailah!

Might have to loop Missy's "She's A Bitch" if I get her...

No? At least, I watched the video again and re-read the skills and saw no signs of that. Wouldn't even work, I don't think?

Yeah Nailah is the one I'll pull for 100%, she's kind of ridiculous with slaying wo dao weapon and distant counter. Also gorgeous.

Hah! Definitely looking forward to Nailah and that free dude seems strong also, which should make phoenixmaster's GHB solutions easier.

Between Veronica, Smol!Azura, Eir, and now Naesala there are a lot of very strong F2P options.

Yeah, really diggin' the free dude.

I have 131 orbs for tomorrow and will only get more with tomorrow's bonuses, new maps (and quests to go with them) and ya know, the tickets (pretty sure they said this banner would have those?). Feelin' pretty good about that. Gonna snipe for Nailah with red as my backup color. The nice thing is with that is that I'm likely to get my last needed Reinhardt in the process. Wouldn't mind a few more Nowis either.

'course just like my +10 Tharja, I've given exactly zero thought towards his skill build, other than filling the empties.

Heh, that's how I am with empty slots, too. At least he's got 9999 SP for when you do think about it. Leon is one of my merge projects, too.

The tickets for this new banner are earned through forging bonds rather than login bonuses. I like that. Sets a precedent for more ticket earning quests and options in the future...
