[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.

Speaking of orbs, I'm at least happy about these BHB reruns because I apparently didn't finish any of them back when they were new; only the lowest difficulty for most. Easy 4-7 orbs every day so far by just parking W!Sothis in a corner of the danger zone.

E: My weird luck streak of great pulls with bad IVs continues. Only took 9 orbs to get Alm/Celica, but they're -spd. Got my first Python on the process, but he's -atk. At least Python's bane will be easier to merge away. Tempted to pull for Conrad with the 4* chance, but no red orbs showed up on either my initial free pull circle or the second one.

I also got Alm/Celica in 9 orbs, with +HP/-RES which seems fine. After all my trying to get Sharena/Alfonse, it did feel good to get the cute couple easily.

Just reached chapter 19 of Sacred Stones (which is where I left off on my first run) and I noticed on my save files that my playtime is literally *double* for my first file. I knew I did a lot of grinding to level up the trainee characters and shit, but I didn't realize I spent that much time doing it.

This time around, I decided to skip those characters and go with mostly people who are already good without hand-holding. I only cleared the tower once, just for the items. Might actually beat the easiest FE game now, instead of grinding so much that I get sick of it XD

E: Did some yolo pulls and got a 4* Conrad! +atk even! But -spd... might pull for a merge after Soren's banner comes back. Gonna get Soren first before doing anything else (385 orbs for him now after that). But yeah, I upgraded Conrad. I hope they do the 4* focus with every seasonal banner.

I have to wait all the way until Thursday to try for Soren again. Rude.

Thank fuck for save states. As mentioned in the currently playing thread, I beat Sacred Stones, and now I'm doing the endgame shit. Well, this one enemy's attack keeps freezing my emulator. Not sure if it's an emulator specific issue or if that happened on the real cart as well. The annoying thing is, this is a 10 level dungeon and hard saves are not allowed. I don't know how people did it on the actual GBA, especially if say, your batteries were running low or something. You'd have to put in a fresh pair of batteries before starting and basically start right when you got up in the morning on a weekend to clear this thing. And if your game froze, fuck you! Start over! I'm glad modern FE doesn't pull that BS, and thank fuck for save states, because I would have quit for good the last time my game froze, otherwise.

Pulled two Valbars this morning with free pulls and one of them was finally +def, so I got that merge project going at +5 now. His support with Leon has already started thanks to this month's Lost Lore. But man, his base kit sucks. No wonder he was a insta-demote. Got some work to do.

I'll be voting for Leif as far as I can since I don't have him. How about you guys?

Surprised that Edelgard made it since she's in the normal pool, but the free Ike still scored quite high, so I think a lot of people misunderstood the purpose of these votes...

As for the DLC, I'm absolutely loving Yuri just as much as I expected.

Heh, Yuri is trending with like 64k tweets. Probably full of spoilers though, I at least caught a glimpse of stuff like war phase costumes and S-rank artwork, so maybe avoid that tag for now.

Dunno which horse to back in the voting gauntlet, that might be a gameday decision.

I've only seen timeskip Balthus on my Twitter so far and I can't find anyone else... and I'm actively trying.

I did end up spoiling myself on timeskip designs earlier but I won't share my opinions yet since that will give too much away.



So Nils was already spoiled because the achievement for Google Play was leaked. A lot of people have wanted Rath forever, too, so yay (and he's in the 4* pool for this focus as well). Fiora now has non-alt only status and Leila looks great! I think I may go for her. For those that don't know, she's not even a playable character, but she's popular and a lot of people on my Twitter predicted her. Fiora is actually the most surprising unit here to me, and I still don't think her voice fits how she looks. Heath is the GHB so that's also cool. I just hope they don't fuck him over like they did Haar.

One thing I'm curious about: Obviously, V!Conrad isn't going to stay in the 4* pool forever because he's seasonal. But, are the 4* normal units going to remain as 4* after? Are they basically just telling us who the demote is now?

Edit: I didn't notice at first but it was pointed out that Nils and Fiora are colorsharing. I haven't finished my Spring Marisa yet, nor have I even started with Altena, so yeah, last thing I need is another lance flier right now. Going for Leila for sure, and I'll nab Nils when he returns on a later banner, hopefully. Cruel to do that to all the people who have been wanting Nils for so long.

Yeah Leila seems the most interesting to me. Good to see a second dancing dragon.

I fucking free-pulled Nils (no colorless stones), which is kind of insane luck, considering tons of people are probably going for him and getting pity broken by Fiora right now. I still haven't had time to get the quest orbs or tickets, so I'll go for Leila later on.

I too got Nils for exactly that raisin (though I actually wanted Leila but got no greys, so blue was the fallback.) Probably the end of my weird wave of freebie luck, which has gotten me a 5* Mordecai, a Brave Ike, that Celica alt, and a Tethys, all within the last few days or so. Two of those were back-to-back freebie pulls, too.

Results for that thing are up. Nothing unexpected.

https://referendum2020.campaigns.fire-e ... -US/result

I don't really have a preference. Got half of them already and no one in the other half really reaches out and grabs me.

Oh, I thought that's been up? But yeah, I only need OG Sothis and Leif.

Not expecting them to win, though. Altina has so much backing behind her. Mine is -Res and as I mentioned, if she wins, she'll be in the free to play pool and thus I won't want to merge her because guides. Not sure what I'll do with my current copy if she wins. W!Sothis at least is better fodder and the copy I pulled is already neutral so if a dupe of mine wins, I hope it's her.

Ooh another chance at my Askr duo, nice!
