Title: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Moon Girard on January 18, 2017, 11:28:47 pm
Figured it's better to have a thread for this instead of always posting in the nintendo thread about it.

Game release on Febuary 2nd for Android & iOS
Main Site: https://fire-emblem-heroes.com/en/
(https://i.imgbox.com/4Ui4mmGr.png)

What is this?
A Fire Emblem Gacha game Battles are like Classic Fire Emblem Battles but with much less units on the field.

What's Gacha?
Gacha=Gotcha it's a lot like Gambling basically it's using Currency to Summon a random Hero to assist you.

Quote
Don't link your account when it asks.

1. Play the tutorial and the three prologue missions. You'll have 18 orbs.
2. Go to the main screen and click the owl. You'll get 2 more orbs. You have 20.
3. Summon all five units, using 20 orbs.
4. If you like the units, great. Link your account and continue to play.
5. If you don't, either:
---- iOS: Delete the entire game
---- Android: Go into MISC settings and clear data, this will save you 40 MB of download, or just delete the game.
---- Rooted Android: File navigation to data/data/com.nintendo~/ and delete the shared_prefs folder. You only will have to re-download 0.1 MB.
6. Repeat 1-5.

Base 5 stars if your looking for them
Ryoma, Lyn, Lucina, Tiki: Dragon Scion, Leo, Azura, Hinoka, Linde, Hector, Minerva, Takumi, and Elise.
Camilla, Robin, Roy and Marth are also good units while not being 5 star based.

I mean it's in the NA trailer and on the main site so I'd hope they wouldn't be that stupid to decide to Censor it after having already shown it off.

Also Camillia's art isn't on any of the site but it's in the code for all the sites except for Japan's

If you're a cheapskate or don't have a strong attachment to particular characters it's easily bearable.

If you use these freemium games as for waifu collection then you're fucked pretty badly.

Post by: Byakko on January 19, 2017, 01:18:03 am
The gameplay isn't the selling point in those games, it's the collecting and the stats maxing. You'll want all your characters to be 5* with all maxed skills, and you'll figure, oh, I have a bit of money, I can pay a bit for the first, then a bit more for the next 5, then a lot more for the next 10.

Post by: Speedpreacher on January 19, 2017, 01:54:16 am
The MMO loop of lording something you have over someone else can get addictive. "Ohohoho, I've got Rare Summer Bikini Lucina! You jelly, fella?"

If you go in with a set character that you want to have and the odds aren't in your favor prepare to question your self-worth a little.

If you find your self rerolling for a 5 Star base or your favorite character your probably gonna get addicted also depends on your luck at pulls.

Post by: Lost_Avenger on January 19, 2017, 09:25:56 am
I'll definitely give this a chance. Really hope they expand the size of the maps when the roster eventually grows. Kind of kills the experience when everyone is close to each other and there is almost no real strategy. It is more of a fire emblem arena melee.

As for them being addictive, I've spent a couple thousand on summoner's war and a couple hundred on record keeper. Some of them are a dollar here or there and they add up. Some of them are packs that could potentially put you ahead in the game. You can usually get by without spending in most of them, but it usually comes at the price of falling way behind when other people can potentially have either better pulls than you or much better resources to work with that you would normally need to grind for hours to get

Post by: Moon Girard on January 24, 2017, 01:35:39 pm
So they have revealed the top 3 so far
Next thursday they have another ranking update
1st is Lyn 2nd is Lucina and 3rd is PoR Ike

Thank god for Lyn Lucina being number 1 for females would be such a snooze fest Wonder how much the vote is split between the two versions of Ike.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: TrinitroRoy on January 24, 2017, 02:42:27 pm
...well, at least ONE of my votes is in the top 3 right now... #GoTeamLyn
Still, crossing fingers that Caeda gets enough votes to become playable alongside getting on the calendar (hoping that a yet unconfirmed character getting on the calendar increases the chance of said character becoming playable).

Post by: TrinitroRoy on January 24, 2017, 05:42:07 pm
Are you sure? The center unit has a sword icon instead of a lance icon, and last time I remembered, Caeda's default weapon was a lance, a staple for Pegasus Riders back in the old days...if I remember correctly.
Man, it has been years since I last played any Fire Emblem...
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Moon Girard on January 24, 2017, 06:00:22 pm
Her starting weapon in the first fire emblem is a sword it's a odd callback but that's definitely her, you can see her full artwork in the direct behind Marth and in the trailer behind Camilla.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]

wtf shouldnt the votes for ike and marth be combined
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Moon Girard on January 26, 2017, 09:18:19 pm
Marth should since he looks identical in both games but I see why Ike isn't since it's a special outfit I can only imagine the people who are voting for young Ike would be pissed if the votes were combined and buff Ike got the outfit instead since it is the most recent design and vice versa which is why it was dumb to include multiple versions of a character(in certain instances it would make sense like the black knight) on the poll as it just splits votes.

Just so you guys know, Lyn and Lucina are so far ahead of every single other character that voting for pretty much anyone else is almost a waste.  If I were you I'd settle for one of them, but it's your vote and I can't really tell you what to do.

i download the Qoo version and then when i went to the play store to check if it was out it only list Uninstall and Open guessing that's fine.
Also wow my second summon got me a 5 star Cordelia would prefer an actually 5 base though so guess i have to reroll still wasn't expecting a 5 star so quickly though.

Game is finally up in Play Store and iOS store for NA.

also might as well add a reroll guide (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=229601429&postcount=2705)

Base 5 stars if your looking for them
Ryoma, Lyn, Lucina, Tiki: Dragon Scion, Leo, Azura, Hinoka, Linde, Hector, Minerva, Takumi, and Elise.
Camilla, Robin, Roy and Marth are also good units while not being 5 star based.

Really reminding me of Brave Exvius now.

I joked in my head that I was going to get the Waifu Squad and aim for Tharja, Carmillia and Lucina and then accidentally get a Tiki in the process...

Well somehow I got 2 Tiki's and the rest are meh dudes...one is a 3 star, the other is a 5 star...

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Moon Girard on February 03, 2017, 06:40:51 am
Yeah Luckily Robin seems to be a good unit so the only real downside is having to get him from 3 stars to 5 stars.

Well good news for you guys it's still possible for you guys to reroll if you still want to even if you did link to your mynintendo account found a way to do so when trying to transfer my Lyn account to my iphone unfortunately i lost my Lyn account dicovering this though. But if you go to account management and hit delete all data it will unlink the mynintendo account and allow you to link the mynintendo account again when you get the roll you want only downside is if you got the 10 free orbs from the mynintendo rewards you can't get those again.

First roll:
3* Florina (Only 3, ;_;)
3* Saizo
4* Jagen (lol)
4* Clarine
and 5* Tiki

There's a lot of 3 & 4 stars, but screw it.  I managed to get Tiki on my first try, I'm keeping this result.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Darkflare on February 03, 2017, 07:20:38 am
- Sending heroes home
- Greeting your friends
- Given by heroes randomly in the Home menu.

I believe 20 is the cap. You have to prestige them into the next star to continue leveling them up.

if your marth is too powerful (i assume he has a high star rating) and eating up all the exp you can go to equip skills to give him a shittier weapon

Anyone know if it's worth it to spend time and exp leveling up 1 or 2 star units?
Curious since the daily battle thing is only giving 1 or 2 star units, and I was wondering if they're good for using, or just for fusing.

So... is there a use for having 2 of the same 5* unit? I pulled 2 Tikis. It didnt let me merge them.

Do you have both of them favourited?
The game won't let you merge units if they're favourited, and the game auto-favourites 4 star+ units by default.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 03, 2017, 09:24:19 am
Yup, now they are merged, thank you. Also, found out that if you are overleveled by a certain number of levels, you stop gaining experience. My lv 20 units started gaining experience in the last couple chapters again.

Got a 5 star Camilla and tired of rerolling with Roy being the only 5 star i get so here's my ID 9817579472 also added a list in the first post with all the IDs posted so far.

That's why I kinda wish unit trading would have existed in FEH, because while you got two instances of Roy you hate, I on the other hand am in dire need of a Roy.

Trading would defeat the purpose of Gacha so i can see why they don't i just wish more companies making Gachas followed Namco's password route where you can assign a password to an account then just give the password to someone else allowing them to retrieve the account without having it be linked to a personal account/social media account.

Damn, so reminding me of my terrible luck in Brave Exvius...

Re-rolled for a good minute until I got units that was atleast good enough and no Base 5 stars.
Finally got a great 6 star DPS(Chizuru) from a Rainbow Crystal thus destroying a good chunk of the early game with her alone and then after forever, I got another Rainbow...fucking Rosa who is way outclassed by my other healing units by the time I get her.

Even today was nothing but disappointment and I shouldn't have bothered outside of getting a 2nd Zidane.
Atleast this game isn't making me want to hurt someone atm.

I got Female Corrin(Is there seriously a male version in this game? Because I only seen Male Robin so I'm guessing that they are the canon(?) versions for this game at the very least... until they get released possibly down the line.

Male Corrin is in he's a 4 star with a sword and Female Robin shows up in Chapter 4 as an enemy she's just not summonable yet. Also Takumi is ridiculously strong he's so damn hard to beat in PvP it's like he's a 4 man team himself.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 04, 2017, 07:19:54 am
Takumi is broken. He is what mages should be. Marth is op too, but not quite as broken.

Is there a way to make it so you can set your units before a battle like in normal fe? It would make the game better imo. That and increasing the stamina cap or reducing stamina costs.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Darkflare on February 04, 2017, 07:52:24 am
Edit your team and change their order.
Of course, you'll have to know how the stage sets them up.

Yea, the stamina cost is ridiculous in later levels and this becomes more noticeable when you go to the training tower. Right now, the stamina costs are halved for about 2-3 weeks.

Oh and when you realize how you'll suddenly find yourself scraping for orbs. I know they got to make their money but damn.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Hyogo on February 04, 2017, 06:44:57 pm
Regarding orbs, I feel like they should've done it like some other games do, watch an advert, like 30 seconds to a minute long and will reward you a free orb per advert watched, maximum of 5 per day.

This way it'll be a little more forgiving to those who don't feel comfortable investing money into the game and only managing to get 3 star heroes.

Also if I wanted to start over, how would it work on Android? Would I need to make a new Nintendo account so I can link it? or would I need to make a new google play account?

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Xhominid on February 05, 2017, 12:14:07 am
I'm still slowly going through the game, but I do echo the thoughts of Titlin and Hyogo some.

It's honestly the best time to re-roll and get a 5 star period. Before there's any chance of more units clogging up the summon drain(and variants) so I honestly do have to say it's best to re-roll now until you get one so you won't have to worry about trying to get a 3 star or worse to 5 star anytime soon.

And as for Hyogo, I absolutely agree on more ways to gain Orbs. It's weird that they only have one real way to get them...and it's in such a little amount(one per stage? Even with Hard and Lunatic, that seems very small for how quick stages can be completed and how big the summon pool is).

Maybe I more used to the Brave Exvius way, but there seriously need to be more outlets, including PvP and dailies in getting a good amount of orbs, like 5 orbs for completing all the daily tasks for a free summon atleast.
I know there will be updates, but it really should have started that way at the start.

So I gave in and bought some orbs, I got:

Lyn (5*)
Cordelia (5*)
Female Corrin (3*)
Male Corrin (4*)
Olivia (3*)

Really wanted Azura/Takumi, but I'm incredibly happy with this roll and will be good off summoning for a while. Guess I'll just use the orbs I get from now on for EXP bonuses and what not for the time being (which I should have been...).

Yea, the stamina cost is ridiculous in later levels and this becomes more noticeable when you go to the training tower. Right now, the stamina costs are halved for about 2-3 weeks.

Dang, it's only an event? I only skimmed through the patch notes and thought Nintendo was kind enough to change the stam costs for the training stages. Guess I know what I'll be spamming during this event. Heaven forbid I'll have to wait around 4 hours for my stam to fully recharge so I can grind the same 4-5 training/story missions before waiting another 4 hours after the event ends...

I can see most of them being up there. Not sure what a 5* of some of them can do. I know Lucina can kill dragons easily though. Pretty much anything that one shots a Tiki is A+ imo. Takumi is probably top 2. Havent seen a 5* Ryoma yet, but I get wrecked by him if he goes first in story so probably up there
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Andriod]
Post by: Moon Girard on February 05, 2017, 09:36:15 am
Takumi and Ryoma are the 5 star bases you'd see after a few months when power creep started in other Gacha's and IIRC they can't nerf them because of a law Japan has so they just steam roll most of the content as it's not balanced around them they should of held off on releasing them the game is already generous handing out 5 stars as is.

Anyway new mini event starting tomorrow(today?) (https://www.reddit.com/r/FireEmblemHeroes/comments/5s6974/new_mini_event_starting_tomorrow/)

Seems to suggest the last part of the ??? stone is opening up with special maps that have 2 difficulty. Clearing them gives an orb. You can 6 orbs a week, It goes on for 5 weeks and you can net a total of 30 orbs in total.

Havent used a healer yet. I pucked up Draug. He isn't as amazing as Hector, but he isnt bad either. Im tempted to build Nowi over Tiki because of her lightning breath that can hit ranged targets too. She isnt as godly as Ryoma though. Im also building Lilina, but Ive had 4 level ups in a row without a single point going into ajything, but skill points.

Also, Anna ends up decent if you build her up stats wise. She is lacking in skills though if you guys dont get one of the top tier axe users. Her stats as a 5* are higher than Camilla iirc

Who knows, maybe I'll FINALLY get Roy next time.

In other news, I also completed today's and yesterday's event battle, so I also have Lissa and Donnel to go with Robin.

Lucky Duck. I really want to have a team with Burning Blade, Awakening, and some other heroes. The only cinematic I got is Male Robin's...

OK, so there's going to be an update that will reveal the final option. You'll get an announcement that will talk about a mode that puts your team against a powerful summon. I think the first one is that narriccist guy, you even fight him in the story.

The results are in for the Fire Emblem Heroes “Choose Your Legends” vote. Ike and Lyn came out on top with 33,871 votes and 49,917 votes on the heroes and heroines charts respectively.

Those two characters won the poll, but Nintendo is showing its thanks in another way. Roy and Lucina, who were next in line for the male and female sides, will also be getting their own “Choose Your Legends” versions.

Goddamn, the Narcian battle in the new special map is tough. lv25 for the first one, you're fucked if you don't have a flying unit because you go through a bottleneck, they just wait for you with archers, mages and flying units, and if you don't one-shot them on each battle you're probably losing one unit, and therefore the whole fight, on the next turn. This on the first week after release. Assholes.

Ok, real talk. Yea, one can easily see how this fight is pretty nasty with that sole choke point being incredibly covered well by the enemy. I was very fortunate to have a team that wonderfully counters that defense. I had my Minerva rile them up by taking out their archer and then have her retreat to heal while enduring the counter attack from the green and blue mage which thankfully did scratch damage due to having an axe and the holy vestments ability triggering. Narcian was shot down quickly by my Tharja when he came over to attack. Now THEY came through the choke point and it was a matter of lining up the right unit for the right enemy.

How come you didn't get the 2 star Subaki from the same day? anyway post what you got for units i'm sure you have a team that can clear the lvl 25 one which will get you a 2 star Narcian who you can then use as the flyer to clear the lvl 35 one though at that point there is probably no reason to beat it other then to say you did or sending him home for feathers since your Narcian would be a 4 star at that point.

Don't skip the massive leveling needed inbetween to get him to that level, seriously. I only now realized that I could use 2000 feathers to up my chars by one star (I thought I read 20000 from a post here earlier and I didn't check) but that it would reset them to lv1, and I'm not sending my only relevant flying unit, 3* Cherche back to 1 from barely reaching 24, plus the leveling system is pretty difficult and irritating. Either stack up on the correct color and shape of gems for one specific character, or play 50 levels with him getting one-shot for half of them to rise by one level per battle if you're lucky.

Oh by the way, could a mod fix the topic title plz ? "Android".

Post by: Byakko on February 10, 2017, 04:07:31 pm
Ooh, got it. And only 200 to go from 2 to 3. ... But most of my cast has a red cross that forbids me from upgrading the low level ones, without telling me why, just going beep (fuck you too, game !) and I'm certainly not sending those above lv20 back to lv1 without an explanation. Do I need to raise everyone to lv20 first ? Because that's just going back to the annoying leveling system.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on February 10, 2017, 04:14:50 pm
yeah, they have a red cross because they're under level 20. you could spend shards to quickly level those characters up to 20 (or close to 20) it's not like you can use them for anything else afaik
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on February 10, 2017, 04:22:50 pm
The shard colors are rotating each day or so in the training tower, apparently. It does force me to wait a whole week if I don't have any for my character (maybe a bit less than a week if "universal shard" is something that can be used by everyone, we'll see tomorrow, but it's still pretty bad)
So this system that makes you wait a week, at launch period, with a weird leveling system, for a high level quest (well, high for launch period), they're not exactly making this easy.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on February 10, 2017, 04:33:13 pm
if you've beat the campaign you probably got a shitload of shards by now. you get 1500 for each chapter you beat on hard from the quests menu (this is only after beating every campaign on normal). you will however need badges, and those rotate on the arena each day like you said. some days you can get badges from every color
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Moon Girard on February 10, 2017, 04:35:43 pm
The rotating Badge system is pretty dumb if you ask me having to wait a week to get a certain badge type to advance my character is such a dumb design.

Don't skip the massive leveling needed inbetween to get him to that level, seriously.

Of course but if he doesn't have the orbs to summon/luck to summon Minerva, Camilla or even Cherche or Beruka,  leveling up a 2 Star Narcian 3 times is his best option if he wants to beat the Hard one. Since Subaki or any other Blue Flier he could get stands no chance of Killing the archer and Tanking the hits from the blue mage and then Narcian since he not only has the type advantage but also Lancebreaker, If he can beat the Normal map i don't see much of a reason for him to beat the Hard Version if he just wants to get Narcian since the 3 star version might have worst stats on level ups and max stats then the 2 star version anyway.

Edit: Now that it was mentioned if he didn't stack up on green badges he wouldn't be able to advance Narcian high enough anyway since the event ends on the 14th and Green badges won't be back in training tower till the 16th i believe.

Oh by the way, could a mod fix the topic title plz ? "Android".

I find waiting for the badge rotations to be bearable. One day of playing through the training tower only should give you plenty enough badges/great badges for the specific type you need (without using stamina potion). With a stacked team, you'll get a good amount of great badges playing through Lunatic. I'd focus on finishing the story on all difficulties for orbs though so you can roll for potential 5*s if you don't have a fairly good team yet.

Actually, I don't even know why...eh, whatevs, I just hope the level, the stats and the type of my unit is what matters the most in the end.
Now...about what units I have:
*Default Story Mode characters: Alfonse (Lvl 7), Sharena (Lvl 3), Anna (Lvl 9), Virion (Lvl 9), Matthew (Lvl 2), Raigh (Lvl 5)
*4-Star: Cecilia (Lvl 14 already), Eliwood (Lvl 2), Ogma (Lvl 1), Fir (Lvl 1), Henry (Lvl 8), Female Corrin (Lvl 9)
*3-Star: Nino (Lvl 12), Male Robin (Lvl 1)
*1-Star Event Characters: Subaki (Lvl 9), Hana (Lvl 1), Felicia (Lvl 1), Lissa (Lvl 12), Sophia (Lvl 9), Donnel (Lvl 1), Gunter (Lvl 1) I do plan to do another last summon before the summon event is over, though, so that may improve my chances for at least the future...

Hopefully they are better than in stones. They were probably the worst lords Ive used (outside of Roy if he doesnt have his sword). They had really low stat caps and were more or less paladins. I assume they are mounted units in heroes?

Thanks, gonna train my Robin to up to snuff then and team him up with Lissa (really helps that she can heal AND deal damage), Henry and especially Cecilia. I mean, I already managed to bring Robin to Lvl 9, so I seem to be making solid progress...I hope.
In other news, nice to see Ephraim and Eirika again.

Yeah, you really have to have a solid team to take on the hero thing. I made it with the skin of my teeth, but they barely scraped 30. You do have some good units on your summon roster, just train them up.

Funny note: I only had Olivia just to bring up Sheena to two spaces. She gives others another chance to move so yeah, she's my anchor when you think about it.

lol no. Lissa barely does any damage and can barely even finish off the weakened targets her teammates attack. She's better off having Gravity so she can at least limit the movement of anything that manages to attack her or paired with a unit that lets her attack and then have her move out of range.

Also, I strongly recommend you use some orbs on your castle to increase XP gain. Later levels take forever to go up without an upgraded castle.

I just recently upgraded mine. I only have 2 lv 40 units so it is worth it. Id recommend doing your initial reroll and then the next sets of orbs you get should probably go to your castle.

Edit:
Another thing I would recommend is that if you get 2 of the same character you like as a 4 or 5*. Dont get rid of them or combine them. Save one in case you get badly rng screwed stat wise like mine did

healers can be useful sometimes, they can deal magic damage (shit magic damage but it's something) and can help you out if youre in a situation in which you can run away to heal and then come back to win the stage. also serra's skill boosts the speed for all your characters, which can get you out of a jam

I just tried this game for the first time today and my very first roll gave me a 5-star Takumi, which the internet is telling me is ridiculously overpowered.  Is that a common thing to get or did I accidentally stumble ass-backwards into the strongest character in the game right out of the gate?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 12, 2017, 08:10:13 pm
Takumi is op. He can counter from any range and iirc, he does more damage as he gets hurt and he isnt weak to any other color(with some weapon exceptions). Hector is probably 2nd and his only downside is his res and movement. Leo is probably 3rd or 4th with Lyn or Tiki being the last of the top 5 people. Leo and Tiki have aoe damaging skills(with both also being good against Hector). Lyn can attack again if she kills something. They only had counter for Takumi that I have seen so far is probably Robin.

Id also put Ryoma, Nowi, Lucina, and a couple others up there since they can counter some of the top tier threats, but arent as godly. Imo anyway. I think the 3rd-10th or so are pretty close together.

That was my 152nd roll :p. First double 5* roll since double Tiki, but I paid for those orbs(2nd account is on bluestacks cause my tablet wont play it. It crashes as soon as I click it)

I wouldn't put Leo in top 5 he's not even the best mage unit with Linde around, i'd put Ryoma above him also Azura should be top 3 for sure since she's extremely strong against red units and if she can't kill a blue or green unit just have her sing to have another unit do it the only real downside to her is she requires you have another strong unit. Her Takumi, Hector and either Ryoma or Tiki is probably the best team you could have right now. Of course Azura seems to be the rarest character in the game as i've only even seen one in Arena where as all the other top tier seems to show up quite often.

I think Leo's aoe skill is what puts him up a bit higher than most mages(same goes for Tiki). That and his ability to reduce movement to 1. His mobility is pretty nice too. Linde hits harder, but she is pretty frail. Leo isnt exactly super bulky, but I think he brings more to the table at the cost of a lot of damage. Id even put Tiki over her cause Tiki has the aoe and bulkier stats(at the cost of having a weakness to certain characters). Just imo. Edit: Dpes Linde have an aoe? Ive been running on very low sleep, but I thought she only had miracle? I could have sworn she just used an aoe skill on me in training tower?

I see Azura occasionally in arena actually. I kind of forgot about her though tbh. Her attack stat is actually decent too. She would be easy to build an offense around though. Im not really sure how or where to place her. Id say probably top 5. Definitely above Ryoma.

Some of the tier lists have Camilla really up there, but I just dont see why. She has the same aoe as Leo and can double hit, but she gives up her speed to do it. Her stats arent all that amazing either imo. Take her brave axe away to save her speed and she still gets doubled by most threats.

Id put Ryoma near the top 5. Only downside I see to him is his pretty low defensive stats. He is pretty easy to counter with something like Cordelia or most mages. He doesnt have an aoe and his passive only kicks in when he is close to dying anyway. So he has some drawbacks. Great as an offense unit. He is pretty easy to pick off on defense though, but the AI is pretty bad ;P

Also, pulled Camilla with my next set of orbs. Almost lost my account cause of that error though. Make sure you link your account cause the only way to get the connection error I had to go away is to reinstall the game. The 803-3001 error

Love Matthew's poison, but like 3/4 of the time he dealt 0x2 damage at 3* (the poison did help to bypass that a little). It was really shitty even when he was at lv26 (3*), but at 4*, his poison goes from 4 to 7, so that'll probably make up a bit for dealing terrible 0 damage.
Cherche is my only armor breaker that can do anything against those fucking armored knights, which is tough, but she's pretty damn good at it, so she deserved a rank up from 3*.
I also just got Clarine (4*, lv3), and I'm discovering how fucking amazing a healer on a horse can be, even if she has no attack whatsoever, she can reach any place on the map in a flash and it doesn't matter that she's low level because her heal is fixed and she can fuck right off away from danger most of the time.
Also Sharena is so damn good. I really hesitated sending her back to lv1 because she was my main tank support at lv28, but I'm sure she'll be worth the third star (and fourth ASAP).
Generally speaking, I find the skill variety pretty damn good. Poison, shove, armored attack, pull, swap, attack support... There are some really nice skills everywhere.

And I still can't beat the first Narcian map. Team building is rough, grinding the tower back up after upgrading someone's rarity.

Oh by the way, wtf am I supposed to do with those accumulating SPs if my 5* Marth learned all his skills ? It pushed me to rank up those below 5* to get new skills, but for a 5*... ?

Anyone else managed to beat the Narcian hard map at the last minute? I found out the choke point is more of a double edge sword than a complete disadvantage, if you get the two mages and the archer to go through the strait you can stack defensive buffs/heals on a green mage like Cecilia and kill them slowly but surely.

I only just managed to beat the normal by baiting the archer and the casters with Merric and having Jagen rush the guy at the top. One of the only maps that made me feel like I was playing real-ass Fire Emblem in that I had to think tactically and avoid the death of any of my units. More like this, please.

Id like to see them do more in the way of weapon mechanics. I think certain weapons should naturally have ranged and close counters (Ryoma, Xander, Roy, mages, etc) instead of limiting it to just a handful of characters. You could give Ryoma Vantage to replace his ranged counter since he should have it anyway. And then add options for things like spears, long bows, etc that give ranged and closer options.

Id also like to see different versions of characters or additional skill options. Esp since skill points become useless once you max skills. It would add some more variety instead of seeing the same 6 or so units in pvp imo.

And they also need a level up system for stamina

This all the way, I am having fun collecting units (just got both Corrins at the same time), figuring out who benefits who (Sheena and some one who can give her another turn is awesome), and I get to talk to you guys about this stuff and get tips as well. I also get salt looking at you guys and your Takumis and Hector's (any of you guys see that meme edit of here's Johnny but with Takumi or Hector at the door?) At the end of the day, this game is pretty fun to play and talk about.

Any word on when the next update is going to be? Or what the main focus is going to be on? Like Stones in general or just kind of dipping into stones a bit with the next story update?

Edit: Friend code is 2407546676 on my f2p account. Kind of wish they would give us an option to use a friend's hero on a map or something. Seems kind of useless to just have friends for the 5 free feathers?

Heads up that in less than a week from now (Feb. 19th), training tower stamina cost will be doubled.
Quote
-The amount of stamina required to play maps in the training tower will be cut in half.
-The amount of stamina required to equip skills will be reduced to 0.
-During the campaign period, you’ll receive a special one-time log-in bonus of 10 stamina.

Honestly, I think they should just keep training tower where it is at. Esp when you look at how high lunatic mode story stages are. I think they are about where they should be for the low stamina cap. Id only go back to the old amounts when they add some sort of leveling system.

In the meantime, I guess I will start building some of my other units. I kind of want to build a Nino. So Robin, Nino, Olivia, and maybe a healer while the tower is still cheapish

I'm kinda forced to build Anna up as I dont have anyone else with axes thats good,but she sucks so much ugh
Ogma and Est still one shot everything,but Ogma has horrible walking range which means he either gets picked off by ranged stuff or just gets his ass kicked in by spearmen
Also got that broken 5* archer and he seems to be ++atk and +spd which I hear is perfect for him.

Also got 4* version of that slutty Camilla chick but I aint using her as every Camilla in Arena dies in one hit to literally everything.Plus I already have Est around lvl 20 so I cant be bothered to level her up

Finally got through the Narcian quest (easy one). I have 3 units at lv 30+ and the recommended level is 25, and yet I'd still lose anyone in one hit (well, two since most of these assholes attack twice a turn) ; I managed to send Peri to kill the red one on top, then immediately run back (and have Barst pull her one more square to safety), and then two units on the right side, including a flyer, managed to drag Narcian away from the left side on his own, where Marth could one-shot him, then wait for the other horse riding mages to carefully maul them and run away one by one.
I'm not really fond of setups like that that are so much stacked against you - bottleneck with ambush of mages and flyers, almost anyone dies in one hit, one death loses you the whole fight... This isn't so much strategy as it is "fuck it, just level everyone to 35~40 and curbstomp them", only the time limit made it more pressing. I tried this strategy nearly a dozen times, learning to save Peri with Barst pulling her out, before I managed to find the spot that had Narcian stray over the mountain all alone like a dumbass. The mages in the bottleneck just unraveled after that.

I actually finished both Narcian maps not long after they were released. Thank god for 5-star Abel and his ability Aegis, because I wouldn't have survived the maps at all without him. Since Abel is my only good lance unit, I just had him provoke the enemy lance and sword units before retreating and healing up like no tomorrow. From there on out, I basically just lured Narcian into Roy, and had Abel shish kebab everyone else with the brave lance+. Kinda sucks that you get Narcian at only 3 stars though.

Now i'm just saving up my orbs for when the Ephraim/Eirika and Seliph/Julia focus' comes around. Not much else to do though aside from training up some weaker units and trying to get feathers.

if you really wanted any of those characters you shouldve restarted the game until you got one of them. with one of the focus options (which ends soon) you're twice as likely to get roy or lyn. it'll be even more difficult after that

Roy is pretty average. If his weapon had a ranged option like it should, he would be pretty decent. I dont think shove is all that useful. If he had some kind of attack based skill (sol, luna, either, astra, etc), he wouldnt be too bad since he has some decent bulk (even though he is somewhat slow for an attacker). As more powerful axe users enter the game, his triangle adept would be more useful, but with as common as red units are, his ability actually hurts him more than it helps imo. Id like to see him have seal speed or threaten att or something more useful.

Im starting to see people using the rally bot option for offense more (using Nino/tharja with something like Lyn, olivia, etc). Its nice to see the meta evolve beyond just using the op units

Yeah, from what I heard and seen, there are many ways to easily take on Roy. He's just there for the sake of being there, heck even his father can do better than him all because of of Roy's shove ability and Tri-Adept, you either go after green or nothing at all. But good gravy there are a lot of sword units that can do better than Roy.

I re-rolled for Takumi after reading up some things about him and later got Tiki. Still kind of struggling with Chapter 9 content and that Narcian event, but I think I'm still rather under-leveled (18~25). This game is quite fun though. Am I right in thinking it's easier than the official games?

1: you already linked to a mynintendo account, which means you won't lose your progress. your phone or tablet could get destroyed and you could still install fe heroes on another device, link to your mynintendo account and lose no progress whatsoever.

2: i really suggest you start over, be it on your existing device or a different one. if you get roy or lyn or some other roll you're satisfied with, then just make a different mynintendo account and link to that (dont link until that point). keep in mind that the focus will change soon and your odds of getting roy or lyn will be halved so you better get going

Ah, that's what I thought, I've been spamming floors 6 and 7 for my lv30+ guys and I haven't seen anything of this shape. And even at these floors I still haven't seen a single one of the wider level up crystals, and barely a handful of the thinner ones, regardless of the day, which makes it even more annoying to level up my characters (I have to do it the hard way, not through the level up menu).

They are still somewhat uncommon even on the lunatic stages. I have hundreds of the smaller badges, but maybe 20 or so each of the large ones.

If you didnt get a 5* or a top tier character (or your favorite), Id reroll. Esp if you have a rooted phone. You can completely play the game f2p if you get a nice starting roll.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on February 15, 2017, 04:55:31 am
Nice.
On EXP gain, the very first thing that this needs REAL BAD is to maintain EXP gain even if the unit is killed. You go on a difficult stage (like 1~5 levels above your average if you have one tough unit and a few rookies in training) because it's the most rewarding EXP wise, you defeat an enemy with your weaker unit, you gain a level, and then that unit gets killed just before you win => you lose that level. Well that's a good way to make sure your weaker units will never challenge stronger foes because they'll lose the EXP when they get killed anyway ! Same when you lose the entire fight - not gaining EXP when you challenge a map 15 levels above you and get curbstomped is expected, but if you lose just on the final clinch, it's just plain awful.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on February 15, 2017, 05:11:51 am
Losing all EXP is awful yeah, but losing either hero or the whole battle should still incur into a penalty. That's just the spirit of FE, units aren't supposed to be expendable.
That is a good decision imo. Training tower costs are where I think the story costs should be as well. I dont think any battle should be more than 8 stamina.
Higher costs are fine, what isn't fine is the ridiculously low stamina cap. There should be a mechanic to level up the castle or the main character or something just to make it go beyond 50.

but losing either hero or the whole battle should still incur into a penalty. That's just the spirit of FE, units aren't supposed to be expendable.
Pretty much all classic JRPGs give EXP only after you won the battle, and I remember some that didn't give EXP to those who died (I don't know any other RPG that does this on-the-go leveling in the middle of the fight, in fact), but a mobile game like this based on stamina, a currency that doesn't exist in classic RPGs (of course your playtime isn't restricted !), should absolutely change this point of view. Because what this becomes is that it basically punishes you for trying to fight a hard battle, because you lose stamina, which you refill either by waiting and not playing or spending your stock of a special items of sorts (stamina potion). Now obviously this is common for a mobage, to make you pay money to try harder (buying those refill potions) or just plain pay through it, but when they specifically made a system where you can level up in the middle of a fight like that, and especially considering how hard it is to otherwise gain EXP, taking this gain out of your hands after pretending to give it to you is just infuriating. It frustrates you out of trying to fight a slightly hard battle, just in case you end up losing your hard earned gain. And for F2P players, it's a motive for dropping out of the game.

The mini guide the game has even tells you this, complete with the order they rotate in.

Update came with new paralogue missuons to get a few extra orbs. Recommend you take a look at the challenges since they ask for you to have specific characters to get the rewards.

Datamined stuffed from this update looks like a generic banner to pull on and FRobin as the next Grand Battle

Woot, guessed right on that, A lot of people were guessing Navarre or Zephiel.

Hopefully she is as good as male Robin cause I honestly dont know what she does. Only fought her in story and she usually died pretty easily. I'll probably keep pulling on the current banner cause I dont see anything in the focus that I really want. First pull was all 3*s so far. Managed to get a couple dragons on my alt from it though(female Corrin, and 2 adult Tiki's(one came from a second 5 summon and was a base 4 at least). Nice to see the game getting more content

Used the 10 orbs you get from the Paralogues and quest plus $20 got me both Eirika and Julia, which were the only ones I wanted, so I'm pretty stoked.

Using Eirika and Julia in conjunction with someone like Female Corrin and another AoE buffer/debuffer is going to be an interesting combination, which I see a lot of potential in.

im gonna bump kagero up to five stars. she brutalizes infantry units and in the matches i've had online she narrowly survives against takumi (while killing him or almost killing him), and since her special makes her deal more damage the more she's been damaged she becomes even deadlier. she's kind of shit against most other unit types though, but then again most units in the game are infantry type
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 16, 2017, 09:22:43 am
I used most of my feathers bringing my 3*s to 4*s. I want Kagero, but havent had any ninja pop up yet aside from mathew.

What do the twins have for skills? I havent seen them in pvp yet. Everyone is still running the same 6 or so units(which is the biggest downside to rerolling is that everyone rerolled for the same units I guess)

Edit: Pivot, drag back, a weapon with rally attack, and rally speed. Kind of meh. Threaten and seal defense(which dont stack do they?), a 2 turn weaker luna, and a rally attack built into the weapon. Useful in places, but I dont see them getting a ton of usage unless you really like them. Though I can see pivot and pull back being useful though. Her stats are a bit low though. About as Bulky as Roy?

I decided to re-roll to attempt to get Male Corrin again (RNG hates me so much) but I get this.

I think I should keep this roll and hope to get Corrin during story progression & such, Tharja's actually pretty decent, right?

Oh yeah, she's a good red book user and she's pretty darn fast as well. Dishing out damage and her special boosts her output as well. The only downside to her is...never try to fight a good lance unit with her, you're going to have problems with that. If you need someone with strong attack and speed and uses magic, Tharja's your girl. Male Corrin is also pretty good as a leader unit, only a few I think can outmatch him in some things, that and he's kinda frail. The same can be said for Female Corrin as well, being a breath user she can dish out damage and help out others with their attack as well.

I really want to go against the meta and have been using Felicia with my Eirika, Julia, and Fem Corrin build, but good lord she can't even put out the numbers like the majority of the characters can. She's a decent support and has an incredibly powerful special attack, but she's so limited until then. I'm going to eventually 5* her cause I want to commit to this, but it's so hard not to go back to using Kagero or heaven forbid, Takumi.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on February 17, 2017, 01:09:05 am
Felicia is better off taking care of tome users which is where she excels at. Her speed often makes her attack twice so she easily gets her special up. But other than that, yea she's more support than actually doing damage. The dagger debuff is nice to do a little more damage with anyone else at least.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on February 17, 2017, 03:55:18 am
Yeah, I've been using her to pick off mages due to her incredibly high base Res stat.

Quick question, as you guys may have picked up, I know next to nothing about the FE series before Heroes
I've got Frederick, tall guy in blue armor, horse riding with axe
When I level his skills, his quote is (something like) "I shall test my new strength right away, picking up pebbles !"
While I find that quote absolutely hilarious -- what the hell is that about ?? Most extreme sass I've ever read, crippling self deprecation, or what ?

Ah, I see, thanks.

Ive been told that stats are actually decided at lv 1 through ivs, so wouldnt it make more sense to just go ahead and add the difference between 4* and 5* to your unit (like a class change) when you unlock your potential? Or is it just a reset to make you use more stamina and maybe invest in orbs?

Merged stats are lost. The game even tells you this.

The emblems are also easy to get as they dont need greater emblems,only regular ones

Also just realised increasing someone in rarity also unlocks additional skills for that character.Which is pretty neat.Maybe Anna won't end up so underwhelming at the end

Unlocking new skills and weaponry is the main reason to promote heroes :P

I haven't used a single feather yet, I'm saving them to promote Chrom to 5*. I'm not particularly fond of him, but he gains acces to Falchion and Eather whereas other 4* only gain a small boost to their main weapon and bland skills.

Yeah, hold the character's icon to get to their status and then the full list of skills tells you what can be unlocked at higher star ranks. It's critical to know who you actually need to level up, especially if you're starting from a low rarity.

it's 200 to go from 2 to 3 and 2000 to go from 3 to 4. i'm biased because i'd rather favor characters from fire emblem games i've already played and because the designs and story for the story characters are kind of lame

I got a second 5-Star Takumi in my last roll.  Which is fine and all, but it kind of feels like a waste.

I did also get a 4-star Stahl and Nino though, which is great because I really needed decent red and green heroes so I didn't have to keep soloing everything with Takumi.

Hm, I kinda wonder how exactly it determines how many points you get for a successful defense. Obviously it's by how well the defense was, but I'm interested in knowing what happened that gave me 260 points compared to the 250 from last week.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on February 18, 2017, 05:06:03 am
You were challenged by someone marginally stronger than last week. I imagine the absolutely highest score is when a strong team picks you as the "begginer" option and gets curbstomped by your units.

Why are Lucina and Marth above Lyn and Ryoma? I know Lucina is good, but I wouldnt put her in her own tier. No Leo either and he is a pretty good. Also dont see Adult Tiki who is usually placed around loli Tiki (usually a tier below). Probably the tier list I disagree with the most :p but yeah, sharena is decent

Im guessing they rate his ability a bit higher than I would. I only saw the first part of the 2 lines. I agree with most of the lower parts of the tiers though. I think Lucina, Ryoma, and Lyn should all be in the same tier though. But should Lucina be considered the same tier as Takumi, Azura, and Hector though? I just dont see it. I think Cordelia should be just below Azura as well. I think Leo should be in the same tier as Tharja if not slightly higher.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on February 19, 2017, 04:46:15 pm
Being effective against more than just color advantage is also a huge bonus in ranking - anti-dragon in the case of Falchion users. Hector is the top of his type, Takumi has the range and the speed, but the likes of Lucina can be great at their type and go beyond it. It's "maxing out a couple of stats past the limits" vs "really good in all stats + a couple things not even on the list of stats".
Others that have similar features (Robin being effective against colorless) but much lesser stats are way below in the ranking, so it's more like a gimmick for them but they're still easy to trap ; it's another story when there's that and high everything else. There's no easy way to handle that beside having two or three people trap them and gang up on them. It's the same strategy for Hector and Takumi, but they're not higher.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 19, 2017, 10:08:57 pm
Im really hoping they put some kind of mechanic in to balance out the meta. I know they cant nerf Takumi, but maybe add some bow breakers (are there any in now?) Or more units like Robin that counter colorless units. That way we start seeing more than a handful of units in arena. I was doing the arena challenges and fought a team of Azura, 2 Takumis, and Hector. Ive seen videos of 4 Takumi teams (had to be whales). Maybe they can buff units in the future as well, but when you have hundreds of potential characters, a more diverse skill spread would probably be better.

A little mini-event is happening right now. Basically a chain of quests that require you to complete certain training and story missions with specific (all sword/axe/lance) teams that give some free orbs, badges, shards, and crystals.

Also part 3 of the event map has been released. You can easily grab 12 orbs right now (14 with the daily log in) if you complete both versions of the event map and 6 of the Weapon Mastery quests that give out 1 orb each.

The missions don't care how many members are in your team as long as they're all the weapon it asks you(i.e Lance missions can be done with a team of 3 Lance users without a 4th member) Which is great if you're short on a particular weapon type.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on February 22, 2017, 10:19:05 pm
It would have been cool if they gave Female Robin a different weapon, much like what they did with Corrin. They could have given her the Levin Sword which could have acted like Ryoma's Raijinto, but then again I don't think we would need another sword user considering how saturated that weapon class is already.

Takumi won't help you if she has an advantage against colorless units like Male Robin does.

In the Lunatic version of 4-5, she uses Rexcalibur so unless they opt to giver a unique tome of her own at 5* which gives her advantage over colorless units (in which case they should have just given her Gronnraven) or change her weapon completely for the playable version, I'm pretty sure she'll end up having Excalibur as her final weapon which means she's basically a green archer unit that deals magical damage.

A Red mage with high attack and res will be a huge help with this map. You will need to get rid of the Green Axe unit as fast as possible. Then use Takumi/Kagero/another Red Mage to take out Robin. If your Red Mage's res is high enough, they'll be able to tank the enemy Red and Blue Mage's attacks despite the weapon disadvantage. I would also suggest to bring a Green unit with good enough res to aggro and tank the Red Mage's attack or they'll end up going to your (the now low health) Red Mage.

My next turn involved using Kagero to take out the Blue Mage, then used Lilina's Special attack to overkill the Blue Lancer, then proceeded to use Camilla to finish off the last mage.

At least that's one way to do it. I'm pretty sure there are more optimal ways of going about this, but a win is a win.

Here's the map layout to help you guys out.
(http://i.imgur.com/LU7kSiJ.png)

As for Robin, her weapon is Gronnwolf/Gronnwolf+ instead of Rexcalibur. Special attack is Glowing Ember/Ignis and skills are Defiant Res and Blue Tomebreaker (as if being a green unit wasn't already enough to be a counter to Male Robin and Linde).

Okay, since the new focus claims to be characters specifically made to counter Fem Robin, and I already have two of them (4-Star Fir and 3-Star Adult Tiki), how much do those two characters actually help in the map? I'm currently in the process of leveling them up.

I liked the other one better, it was easier to figure out. Surprisingly pulled it off on my second attempt.

Looks like key to this one is to have a team with High Res(And as always preferably having them in their 40s). Took Kohaku's advise to get the axe unit out first by exposing Marth to take the first strikes fortunately counter attacking the axe unit to death in the process. On the next turn, I pulled Marth out of there using his Escape plan ability to make sure he wouldn't be targeted and positioned Felicia and Julia to attack everything that inevitably got close. After blindsiding the Lance unit with Julia all that was left was to exploit the high res of those two to tank the remaining mages for the win.

Peri didn't do shit.

Ya, I wouldn't use that focus. Tiki might help, but I've read that Fir was just terrible.

The Battling Robin banner is baffling like they wanted to give people units to help with the map i get but they leave one of the best units for this map off the focus Niles. Hawkeye is on the banner because he has high Res and can tank mage hits but Niles has a higher Res then Hawkeye and also the ability to one shot them on the counter hit since he attacks at a range as well. Then if Niles initiates the attack he gets another 6 points in Res and he has a Skill that gives his team plus 4 res when they are in battle.

Post by: R565 on February 23, 2017, 03:06:23 pm
Yeah, Fir is just baby's first sword unit. She's so bare bones that it's a shame to even use her for anything other than taking out units. No PvP value at all, which is a shame really. Also about the grand battle, Sheena for the win and tanking those hits...

FIrst off, have people in the team that can take a beating from mage units (people with high Res), second I would stick with having Sheena in there because she's a tank for a reason...slow but can take a beating (from non-red units). If Ryoma is your highest lvl unit then you'll have an even more difficult time because you have to be on your P's and Q's if you have the same lvl as the other units. Also I would suggest removing Est from the team and have either Olivia or another unit that can attack from a distance (unless of course you have her skills on her).

I went with one of my top teams (around lv35) on the lv25 map and I still had troubles. There's five of them who can almost all gang up on the first unit that steps out of the gate, and one death is instant loss. You can't scatter to spread them out and mitigate the damage because they're close enough that they can gang up on one unit and ignore your spread, and even a tank at the gate with two healers in the back couldn't chase them around without risking the healers' safety the mages can take out the healers from over the wall and you could only kill one mage at a time.
The axe unit next to the hole is easily the first to kill (you can take any horse user), but whoever can get him has to then spend the rest of the fight hidden in a hole because of the beating they take right after. Then mages. Archers aren't even good enough to survive any mage counterattack.

Post by: Lost_Avenger on February 23, 2017, 11:51:18 pm
I used Camilla to lure the lance unit, red mage, and robin to the lower left (lance unit went last). This moves the axe user and the blue mage toward the top left corner of their range. Then I had Leo (move to where your maid is) hit the axe user (weakening it and then I had Tiki kill him (weaken first so she wont get her res lowered). This makes the blue mage attack Leo(almost killing him, but gives Leo his aoe). Then I pull Camilla back and heal her (this forces the remaining units to go for Tiki with one of the mages aiming for Camilla. Then it is just clean up. Main thing is to have them focus on a tanky unit like Camilla and either spread them out or kill em all.

My team was Lisa (4* lv 32), Loli Tiki (lv 40), Leo (lv 40), and Camilla (4* lv 40). Took a few tries to figure out how to split up the ai and not lose a unit. Had to switch to my stronger heal (I normally use the 7 heal for both target and healer).

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on February 24, 2017, 01:51:37 am
Yeah, this map can be literally done just using 3 units if need be. My Nowi just stood there and looked pretty while the other 3 did everything else.

Also if anyone's curious, here are Female Robin's max stats as of 5* Lv40:

HP - 40
Atk - 39
Spd - 29
Def - 29
Res - 22

These are neutral stats and for the most part very underwhelming. I don't think Female Robin or any characters gained through Daily or Special maps get the IV treatment like most units who are summoned and instead are neutral across the board. Can anyone confirm this and if this also applies to story characters like Sharena?

Oh, nice.
Limitations will probably be the type of all skills, A / B / C / weapon (probably not, unless splitting available weapons by color is enough) / support / passive, and the availability being limited by star ranking is likely to remain no matter what. Someone would have to comb through the characters so far to list the skills of each type to see if there's any combination that's too OP. Stuff like "changing the color advantage", "double range" and "effective against armored / flying / horse units" would be the most interesting to build up your specific waifu but we'll see if that's included. Beside those advantages, I don't know if there's any specific skill that's too broken.

Yea, F-Robin is the perfect counter to Ursula, but the biggest threat of the Grand Hero battles so far have never been the bosses themselves.

I'm willing to wait and see her overall viability, but otherwise, I think my Julia should be able to handle that.

Id be more than willing to give up a couple units to pass vantage on to someone. Esp Hector :p. Or passing tome breaker to Hector (or sword breaker). Etc. It will probably break part of the meta, but you could start getting bowbreaker on more units to counter Takumi more (not counting units like Nowi, Robin, Kagero, etc that already sort of counter him)

What would be the best strategy for the Female Robin event? Defeating that axe fighter ASAP seems to be the generally agreed norm, but one-shoting him as Takumi seems to be a bad idea, since he then gets one-shoted by the other units...

Get everyone in a good position that makes sure they don't get hit more times than needed. Takumi I would use to pick off people in one hit, and for the mages get up close and attack so they can't counter. Make them come to you, and pick them off when possible.

You can do one of two things, use a Mage (Red one preferably) with high res to one-shot the Axe Fighter. Or use a Sword user to bait the enemy next to the entrance and have someone with Draw Back (like Nino or Sully) pull the Sword user back, though honestly that's a lot more risky due to allowing the other Mages to get into position to snipe your units behind the walls if you're not quick enough to reposition yourself, not to mention that Blue Mage could just end up one shotting your Sword person if their Res isn't high enough.

Also remember, you have an artificial time-limit here. Under no circumstances should you let any of the enemies have their specials charged. Unless you'll be able to take them out before they use it, chances are none of your units are going to survive unless they have high defenses or the AI is dumb enough to attack someone they are weak against.

As for your team:

Cecilia is honestly not a good choice as Female Robin has the advantage over her due to her weapon being good against Calvary units. Not to mention Cecilia has pretty average Res for a Mage and isn't as reliable for tanking the enemy Mage units.

Male Robin is also in the same boat due to not only a Green Unit having advantage over a Blue one, but Female Robin also has Blue Tomebreaker which makes Male Robin useless and will probably be a bystander until you take care of Female Robin and the Axe Fighter.

Adult Tiki isn't a bad choice due to her ability to counter from any range and being a Red unit in general. However keep in mind her Res is fairly low and won't be able to take much of a beating from the Mages.

While Takumi might sound like a good choice, it's actually quite the opposite. Takumi has really low Res and most of the time he won't be able to reliably one shot any of the mages without taking damage himself. Unless you don't have anything better, I would suggest replacing him with a decent Mage or even a Tank.

Don't bother. Seriously, level your units. Anyone that reaches 20 should have their rarity increased up to 4* (5* costs too many feathers it's worth far less than 10 4* units), and then max your 4* and 5* units as much as you can toward the max which is lv40. Just spend your time in the training tower.

You need to play the story to unlock the normal / hard / lunatic levels of the tower, floor 10 unlocks when you finish stage 9 of the story. You're saying you haven't even played the normal difficulty of the story mode, not even chapter 3 to unlock up to floor 4 ? Not even chapter 1 to unlock the first two floors ?? I mean, floors 1 and 2 are only worth it if you're under lv10, but for the whole tower to be locked, you haven't even finished chapter 1, why are you even thinking of these lv25/35 special maps ! Don't be lazy, do the story. It'll level you up past 25.

I just didn't think it was possible to have two negative stats if she was just -atk i wouldn't have cared since she's nothing more then a wall for Takumi anyway.

I have 22,000 feathers now, but I'm not really sure if promoting Chrom is a good idea anymore. I pulled Julia so his Falchion wouldn't be my only anti-dragon weapon, his IV spread is meh (-SPD/+RES) and there's simply better red units I might roll down the line.

I spend all my feathers bringing up low ranking units to 4*. My best team is 2 5* and 2 4* all at lv40, they only have trouble against all 5* lv40 teams with broken units in PvP, and lv40 missions with 5 units. I like to raise several units that I like to something decent, rather than full maxing one unit, and I don't have one single broken unit worth bringing to 5* anyway. 20k feathers is too much for just one or two units, and I've raised like a dozen 2~3* to 4* by now.
But now I have no other way of improving the shit RES/DEF stats of those units that die in one shot from enemies 5 levels below them.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on February 28, 2017, 05:49:47 pm
having a bunch of random units at 4 star rarity and at a relatively high level is the best choice if you want to deal with any of the surprise quests or maps

for example a datamine of march's quests shows that one of them is beating some story map on lunatic with four armored units
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on February 28, 2017, 06:13:22 pm
Oh wow. Yeah, flying units can still be dealt with in close combat so having anti-flying isn't absolutely necessary (it's still very efficient) but raising armor breakers is super important because those fuckers just straight up nullify a lot of things as long as you're not five levels above them. I think I have 3 good armor breakers.
Also I realize that there's a lot of HP up, def up and I assume res up skills, so inheriting skills might help the squishier units. I don't really grasp yet how effective those skills are on the units that have them, we'll see when inheriting is available if it makes a difference.

So after finally getting 20,000 Feathers i advanced my FCorrin to 5 stars and it turns out she's -Atk and Def talk about crap luck.

You primarily use Female Corrin as a debuffing tank rather than a straight out attacker so an IV like that isn't bad as it ups her tankiness especially against Falchion users. If anything I would have been more worried if she was -Spd as she's pretty fast for a character of her type.

Once the inheritance starts pretty much anything below 3 is gone on sight unless it's a character I like

Now that i look at my post i should of added the negative sign in front of Def since it makes it seem like she is -Atk and +Def when she is actually -Atk, -Def and +Res.

Have you checked what her other boon is? While it is possible to have 2 negative IVs, it's always balanced out by having 2 positives so you can't have more negatives than positives and vice versa.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Moon Girard on February 28, 2017, 07:30:01 pm
According to the IV site she has no other Boon unless they screwed up her stats, i know she was 19 HP, 21 Atk ,6 Spd ,7 Def ,7 Res at lvl 1.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on February 28, 2017, 08:01:58 pm
Your Corrin's attack is neutral so yours is +Res/-Def. If you subtract 13 from her attack you would get 8 which is a normal IV at 5*.

kind of wish we had an option to use skill points to either offset the loss from our banes or to reassign the bane to something else. Ive seen people getting -spd or -att Lyns which severely limit what she can do. Esp when people are putting actual money into the game and finally get that Hector they want, but he has -att +spd or something
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: R565 on March 03, 2017, 04:32:18 am
That's the deal with gatchas, specially if the units can have different stats. Luck of the orbs in this game, they should do a challenge where you use bad units against good units. I really do like Sheena, good stats all around, she's just slow with armor...(one reason why I team her with Olivia). I hope people can come up with awesome team combinations and show them off with PvP.

Edit: I wonder if people have Olivia and Azura in one team boosting a Takumi or a Hector?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on March 03, 2017, 05:09:31 am
One team combination I would experiment with Sheena is Olivia/Azura, Hector, and Elise/another armor unit. Olivia/Azura for obvious reasons while Sheena and Hector can keep each other buffed with their respective armor unit centered AoE buffs. You can use Elise (or any other healing unit with Gravity) to keep everyone healed up or use Gravity to slow enemies down to have Hector and Sheena catch up to them. You can also replace the healer for another armored unit to maximize Sheena and Hectors AoE buffs.

Speaking of which, I'm currently building an entire team of horseback units.

(http://i.imgur.com/kS2eyM8.png)
why yes....I did spend money on this game...

Since they're all the same unit, they all benefit from Gunter's Hone Cavaly buff (+6 to Atk/Spd to adjacent allies) and Olwen's Ward Cavalry (+4 to Def/Res within 2 spaces of allies). Eldigan is the powerhouse of the team with his huge base stats and is just there to tank and/or kill everything. Elise is also there to add flexibility with her huge attack stat for a healer (45 with Atk IV), so she can either attack distant enemies with Olwen, slow them down with Gravity, or heal everyone up (especially Eldigan with his Fury passive).

Was looking to get one of the focus, got Takumi...well, looks like I can't give Takumi users grout anymore, since I got him now.

Edit: Apparently, the last option is a voting gauntlet where people vote and play for an army of their choosing, friends even help you get more stuff...10 battle flags...but at least you can battle with a friend unit that's on the same team. This sounds like Splatoon's voting battle only you need flags to participate...oh yeah, only the winner of a match can get a vote. 3v3, only using your leader, ally, and vote captain.

what are you guys using for your iv calculator? The ones Im using dont have accurate info for Cordelia. Mine would reset to lv 1 with 19 hp, 14 at, 4 spd, 4 def, 6, res. The one Im using says she is high hp, Extremely low att(lowest they have is 16(I assume this includes the weapon? The other says 9 attack(I assume without the weapon?), one says really low spd(9 is average lol. The other says 4 is average(Imma trust this one), low defense, average res. So Im going to just combine the two and assume she is +hp -def?

Edit: It is 9, I had a brave lance equipped. So they were both accurate

Post by: Byakko on March 03, 2017, 07:09:10 pm
lv40 team : 5* Marth, 5* Peri, 4* Gordin, 4* Raven. The two 4* can hit twice when attacking but they're otherwise squishy like wet paper, so it's pretty much a blitz attack formation (adding Peri running all over the field), and I'm screwed against stuff like lv40 armored units and mages.
Then all 4* : Sharena lv37, Frederick lv35, Mobin lv35, lv33 Saizo. Fred can handle armored units this time. I love Saizo, but he's also a wet paper noodle and his poison can't kill so he rarely gets an actual kill for EXP (he's great to make sure someone else gets the kill though). I'll have to plug a healer for him some day, I have a nice Clarine, switching out Sharena when she's leveled.
After that in the 20s I'm building a Cecilia, Reinhardt, Palla, Jeorge (all 4* except the new Reinhardt). Jeorge and Reinhardt have great specials to ensure a kill. I wanted to build some armored people (4* Draug and Effie, 3* Gwendolyn) but they either die or can't reach the enemies to kill them so they never level up.

My main arena team is 4* Nowi and Olivia and 5* Camilla and Julia. The real core are Nowi and Julia. Nowi is extremely useful to bait and damage enemies because she can counter from any distance and Julia usually finishes whatever she's dragged in with a single attack (it's extremely rewarding to see her do like 50-100 damage with dragon fang).

So, are you ready for World War Waifu? this shit sounds convoluted af.

My main team is Ogma,Takumi,Anna and Est and its suprisingly good at defending.Haven't lost a defense yet,although so far I did lose 2 attacks cause I got countered well

My 2nd team is Hana,Bartre,Jakob and Robin(In fights,Jakob is either really amazing,or completely useless,there really is no middle ground for him.And as I'm levelling him up he seems to end up being useless in more and more battles which is worrying)

My 3rd team is Hawkeye,Tiki,Catria and Clarine . Catria seems a bit better than Est,Clarine is my first time using a healer so I cant really compare her to anything but she's pretty great,and Hawkeye and Tiki are amazing so far.I'll probably smack Hawkeye into my main team and replace Anna with him later

The Azura one was sometime ago. But if I get another, I'll let you know. I'll do this on a first come first serve kinda' basis.

If anyone else has a unit request, I'll keep an eye out. The only thing I have to ask for is for you to make a fresh Nintendo ID and PM me the details so I can link it to the account right away if I do get something. The only reason I ask for it is because of the whole "error code 803-3001." Can only keep the units for a few hours without a Nintendo ID before I have to delete the account.

So if I'm reading this right, the special PvP mode will be 3 on 3 with a character of your choosing (the left most character of your first team), a unit from one of your friend's, and either a random unit from your or the same friend's army.

I'll be joining Team Eirika, but I can already tell everyone will be flocking to Team Lucina. It's a good thing the prizes aren't all that great.

Post by: Darkflare on March 06, 2017, 04:21:48 am
I wouldn't be surprised if your friends have to be in the same team as yours to use their unit.

Awakening and Fates + Marth and Roy(and later Ike) will always have the advantage in these popularity things when it comes to the number of people joining their teams.  That said, if Splatoon has taught me anything is that the most popular does not always win(And that Callie wins lol) especially since players still have to win their battles for votes to count. Although, teams that have a character that is viable will have another edge since using the leader will award a few more points for the vote.


Fuck it, I'll join the sheep and go Lucina too.

Even if you guys keep the lead on Chrom, it'll be a pyrrhic victory. Lucina is going to steamroll the finals. I'll use my remaining  flags to score high in this round and then jump in the Lucina bandwagon.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on March 10, 2017, 10:07:04 am
Took me a bunch of tries, but finally did it on Lunatic.

(http://i.imgur.com/nD6RYWx.jpg?1)

For those who don't have a Hector to counter attack everything to death, this is what I did.

I took in a Red mage with high attack (Lilina), a buffer (Eirika), a tank (Camilla), and an attacker (Cordelia), though Camilla ended up doing most of the attack.

Anyways, I positioned the team in a way where Camilla and Lilina could make use of Eirika's speed and attack buff. I had Lilina one-shot the green armor (even with 53 Atk, the green armor unit will surivive with 1 HP left, hence the need for the attack buff). Then had Camilla position herself to the second cracked all where Ursula will target her instead. With the speed buff, Camilla was able to avoid being doubled and tank Ursula for minimal damage. The bottom Thief will then break the wall directly above it.

During the next round, I had Camilla go up and kill the Thief at the top while Cordelia placed herself in front of the now broken wall. The Red Cavalier, Ursula, and the Thief formed into one line, getting essentially funneled into the tunnel. The Red Cavalier attacked Cordelia and immediately got wasted with no damage taken. After tanking a hit from Ursula, the Thief then moved upward in front of Cordelia and ended the turn due to clever positioning that he couldn't attack anyone.

I then moved Cordelia to the left and out of the way and had Camilla take out the Thief. Camilla tanked one more hit from Ursula and then was taken out quickly in the next turn.

The key to this battle is taking out the green armored unit as quickly as possible and having a green unit that can tank a variety of hits is essential. Camilla fits the bill here quite well with her mobility and high defense and resistance.

Post by: Darkflare on March 10, 2017, 05:16:15 pm
Yea, I don't think I have the right units to do the Level 40 one. I just hope Ursula doesn't end up being an amazing unit because that would be an extra 2000 feathers I would have to spend.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Erroratu on March 10, 2017, 11:37:59 pm
I only have one unit at level 40 (Takumi) and he isnt doing much good on this stage atm in fact he's usually the first to get fucked
I cant even finish the lvl 30 version because I apparently can't finish the goddamn level without 1 unit dying
Which sucks cause Ursula is an evil woman with creepy af eyes and therefore automatically a 10/10 and I cant fucking grab her

In other news,Chrom took over Ephraims lead but we got it back in under an hour or so,and Ephraim is leading again by a swell number
This is a bit worrying because if Chromdudes do a push in the final hour Ephraim team might not respond in time and we may lose our shit
I'd rather not lose my shit as I am lacking those magical feathers and that 500 feather bonus for winning would be nice
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on March 11, 2017, 05:14:19 am
i got through the harder map
- 5 star level 40 tharja to take out the green armor, red horse and ninja shitheads (she can survive one hit and deal pretty good damage in return)
- 5 star level 38 sheena to block paths and lure ninja friends
- 4 star level 36 female robin to one shot ursula (needs to have 31atk)
- 4 star level 33 lissa to heal tharja and sheena

the harder part is that the red horse does a lot of damage to sheena, but lissa healed her back to full health every time. if you're not sure what to do with this map and really want to beat it on lunatic i suggest you do everything you can to bring up female robin to that level and find a combination that works out

team ephraim won. congratulations and sorry that you're about to lose to lucina, who is best and most courageous

#TeamDisgusting is getting curb stomped by #TeamWaifu. I knew what I was getting into when joining the Ephraim army after Eirika lost, but I have no regrets. Looking at all the memes and fan art spawned from the Chrom fight alone has been some of the funniest things I've seen in a while, so while Lucina will win the gauntlet hands down (like everyone expected to), I think Ephraim is the real winner here with his new found exposure and popularity amongst the community.

Lucina seems to have a lead that is larger than like... all of the votes cast in the first 2 rounds combined. I hope they do more of these in the future though. Maybe one for just Awakening or Fates. I ended up pulling my 3rd Leo sadly. Kind of wish there was a unit trading mechanic. I have 5 Robins and my wife has like 3 Kageros.

Edit: Pulled an -attack +def Ephraim. Game just had to troll me... Managed to finally get a Chrom, but he is +spd -hp so not sure how viable he is.

That's because when the other armies lost, their people went to Lucina's army because duh, she's going to win.

Which is funny because Ephraim might have stood a chance if they all flocked to him instead.

Okay, I might now start to get a little bit more luck in that Gacha business now: I got two 5-Star units in a single week, thus bumping the amount of 5-Star units I own to three.

Ninian will change the meta if she's a dragon with dance as a support skill. I think she's just going to be a (green) dragon with atk/def/res buffs.

Karel and Jaffar could be interesting. I imagine Karel will get Wu Dao (a slightly better killing sword) and Jaffar a killer dagger (nobody has one of those yet, right?).

Don't really feel any hype for Rebecca, Priscilla and Lucius (why staves instead of a green tome?).

So did a last minute pull on the Siblings Bond banner on my Alt account for Eldigan because i needed a red unit since Caede is pure garbage ended up getting a Leo instead i take back everything i said about him being mediocre if not for Leo i would of never beat Ursula since my Leo ended up +Def -Res he took like 4 damage from each ninja which my Sakura could just heal back while he wrecked them on his turn made quick work of the green knight which allowed my Nino and Azura to finish Ursula and the Red Calvary. Shame i won't be able to get him to lvl 40 in time to beat the Lunatic version.

on the topic of the banner Interested the most in Ninian if she ends up a dragon with the ability to dance i won't have to worry about getting Azura on my main account.

New about the april update and more
Quote
The April Update
– Inherit Skill and Merge Allies: Changes Coming

    It will become possible to inherit skills that were previously inherited when using Merge Allies.

    For example, let’s say Marth has inherited the Special skill Sol. If this Marth that inherited Sol is used as the source character for Merge Allies, the target Marth will also inherit Sol.

    In this example, if you performed this action in the current version of the game, Sol would be lost.

– Hero Merit

    Heroes that take part in battles will earn Hero Merit, or HM.
    Once a Hero has earned enough Hero Merit, you can acquire Hero Feathers.
    Please note: Duplicate Heroes will share their Hero Merit.

– New Rules for Combat

    Two new rule sets for battle will be added:

        Defense: Clear the map by defending against enemy attacks for a set number of turns.
        Reinforcements: Enemy reinforcements will appear on the map.

– Adjustments to Arena Scores and Matchmaking

    Changes are coming to how the game handles Arena scores and matchmaking conditions.
    Currently, players are matched based on the number of total base stats of their characters. In the future, matchmaking will be based on a combination of the four values listed below:

        1. Characters levels and ★ rating.
        2. Number of bonuses gained by using Merge Allies.
        3. Total base stats after removing the effects from all skills, including Weapon skills.
        4. Equipped skills.

    This change will help better match players with opponents of similar strength. It will also slightly increase the score you can obtain on all difficulty settings.

– Bonus Hero Descriptions in the Arena
    When you tap on a Bonus Hero in the Arena, a description of the character will appear.

– Notification Display Adjustment
    Notifications will be displayed automatically only once a day, and then not pop up again until the next day. A new day begins in Fire Emblem Heroes at 1:00am.

– A New Way to Expand Your Heroes’ Abilities
    We have plans to add a new equippable item that slightly expands Hero abilities. Look forward to more details about this new feature in the days to come.

Upcoming Grand Hero Battles

    Here are the Grand Hero Battles planned up through the end of May:

        Late March (March 24) – Michalis: Ambitious King
        Early April – Navarre: Scarlet Sword
        Late April – Zephiel: The Liberator
        Early May – Xander: Paragon Knight
        Late May – Lloyd: White Wolf

Future Plans

    We’re currently hard at work developing a new in-game event. Since many of the details aren’t set in stone yet, there’s not much we can share at this time, but this new event will require tactical thinking… since you won’t be able to revive allies who fall during battle.

    The goal of this new event is to provide the thrilling play experiences the Fire Emblem series is famous for in a way both series fans and newcomers can enjoy.

    In the current plan, you will gain battle achievement evaluations that will earn you special rewards.

    Don’t worry! You won’t permanently lose any allies that are defeated while playing this event. We’ll share more information about this event as soon as we can. Please look forward to it.

    That’s all for now! We appreciate your continued support for Fire Emblem Heroes.

Oh cool, I appreciate that. The AI is too often a complete scumbag just sitting there waiting for you to enter their striking range from behind walls and corridors that you can't do anything about even with all the flying and cavalry units in the world. Stack that on the list of dick moves like 5 enemies, defenses that makes your attacks deal 0 damage etc. No, fuck you, YOU make the first move and come in my range.

In normal FEs it's the player who can exploit chokepoints and set ranged units behind walls during defense chapters, not the AI. IS will find the way to make them hard though.

I imagine you'll have to play multiple maps in a row (or maybe one large scrolling map?) with a limited number of heroes.

The upcoming GHB battles sound awesome, but...four sword users in a row?

Yeah, and I can bring a lv40 unit that will make the map trivial but won't let me level my units as I want. If I bring lv31 units on a map that says lv28, I'm hoping to scrap a bit of EXP and keep going until I raise everyone's level, not to get goaded into a slaughterhouse. And then changing my setup for the map by giving it another try doesn't work at all in the training tower where the map is randomized every fight.
My only option is to just have one guy to sacrifice and have the others pile on the guy that killed him, but that's not such great strategizing. I also tend to end battles with just one guy alive when I do that, which is terrible strategy for leveling. And that's no good on a lv40 map like the grand hero battle where one death loses the whole fight.

For those who forgot, the skill inheritance system is still scheduled for release tomorrow (3-16-17). Get ready for some potential bull-shittery from Arena very soon.

Despite how broken Takumi seems to be, he's not that godly as you make him out to be. Yes, he has a skill that essentially covers the biggest weakness of all ranged characters, but in a meta where 1-shotting is the preferred method of taking out your enemies, he isn't the best at doing it. Takumi is better suited for defensive teams while someone like Klein or Kagero can reliably kill most enemies in one turn/shot are geared towards aggressive teams that rely on offense.

Though I will concede the fact that having Takumi over those units would be better in the long run if you plan on running the highest possible score in Arena due to how the scoring system works with weighing your team's combined stats.

Oy, a dozen tower quests have been added that give 3 orbs each. Finish each tower stratum 5 times with a specific unit / color to complete (no death allowed). The 4 quests for the last stratum are probably too hard unless that's exactly who you leveled up (4 infantry, then 4 armored, then 4 cavalry, then 4 flying units, all on the 10th stratum) but that's still a lot of orbs, at least one 5-roll is doable.

Post by: Darkflare on March 16, 2017, 01:26:41 pm
Well the 5th-7th towers require 10 completions and 8th - 10th are 15 completions.

Now that skill inheritance is in, it's time to figure out ehat skills to aim for and to what units. First thing I thought of was someone like Lyndis definitely benifitting from having Vantage.

Post by: Lost_Avenger on March 16, 2017, 02:02:22 pm
Started leveling up all of my Lon'qus to 4* for easy Vantage 3. Since Lucius kinda sucks, I went ahead and made it so he can teleport and heal everyone when he heals(since I have so many of the bald old man healers sitting around). Gave Leo death blow 3. Gave Tiki and Jaffar poison stike, but may switch it out for vantage 3(esp for Tiki). I think I gave Klein an aoe skill too. Im tempted to give Tiki Lightning breath+, but I would need to give up a 5* Adult Tiki or Nowi for it. Lightning breath+ and vantage would be a nice combo. I also gave some characters pull back and smite. Skill inheritance is fun

might as well expect all Hectors to have wary fighter. And most nukers having life and death. And pretty much everyone having vantage lol. Seliph might be decent now. Effie could be scary now since she can have a damage reducing skill and something like threaten att too.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on March 17, 2017, 12:32:35 am
I gave Vantage to Takumi, Moonbow to Eirika, Goad Calvary and Vantage to Eldigan, Death Blow and Glacies to Nino, and Threaten Attack to Klein. Still deciding on a suitable A-skill for Eirika and Ninian. Any recommendations?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on March 17, 2017, 12:44:06 am
i also gave glacies to nino and it takes a long time to build up but it's worth it. i gave effie aegis, will probably give takumi vantage because i am scum, have two shannas that can give desperation (i have a third one i'll keep) and a bunch of lissas that can give renewal

i don't think i'll fuck around too much with this for now because i'd need to spend feathers to get some people to 4 star and i'd rather save those to get characters i like to 5 star

I'm planning to promote my Nowi when this season is over and give her bow breaker or quick riposte to murder all vantage Takumis in the arena. Maybe fury, darting speed and and a special for overkill.

Another thing I have in mind is desperation Lucina since she already has defiant speed and changing Ephraim's moonbow (terrible) for bonfire or draconic aura. The fabled triple advantage Robin is alluring too.

By the way, a guy on reddit made a chart listing every level 3 skill available from 4* and lower star heroes:

Post by: Byakko on March 17, 2017, 04:58:48 am
So far, I only ditched a Raigh and Shanna to give Tharja and Ursula a Rally Atk, Seal Res, and Desperation, and a defensive special from a Hinata I think for Marth because unkillable. I first want to make some characters more versatile for when it turns out they can't do any damage, things like that. I don't have a lot of units with good skills to pass on yet, though I'm making a list (Subaki, Arthur, Florina...)
Oh, right, and I messed up giving Buckler to Marth from a 3* Hinata because that was my first blind test and I didn't realize that I had to upgrade my Hinata to 4* before being able to give Marth the upgraded special.

If I had a Reddit account I would suggest adding a list of units that don't have an A / B / C / Special skill as an extra column, it's also interesting information.

Okay, so after a bunch of listing and planning and a bit of rolling two extra Gordins and a Raigh (all 3*), I'd say that the biggest choke point is... leveling to 4* the units you'll burn to get the good skills to inherit. So lots of time in the Tower, and lots and LOTS of feathers. This is going to be harsh...
But either way I'm quite happy to give some units a few useful stuff. I'm not trying to make anyone particularly OP, but increase their versatility.
Also, now it won't be as interesting to merge duplicates for higher stats if you can pass their skills to someone else instead. That's really pushing the bill on real careful planning.

Sorry for the double post, but wanted to inform you guys if you haven't known already that tomorrow (3-20-17) at 4:15am PST (or 4 hours and 15 minutes after the daily reset), an early bird version of the Michalis Grand Battle will be live for 45 minutes. There will be a hard and lunatic version of the map with a 3* and 4* Michalis as a reward. Not sure if this is a way to get two additional Michalis outside of the two you can get when the Grand Battle officially releases on its intended date (3-24-17).

There will also be an event going on where feathers and orbs will be given out to everyone if a certain amount of people are able to beat the Grand Battle while it's live.

For references sake, this will be map where the battle will be held:

Of course, I get proven wrong.

Anyway, except for Michalis himself, fliers have​ Drag back so if you don't one shot them, they'll put you in range of one that will one shot you. The infantry units have Bowbreaker. Michalis' passive ignores weaknesses so he won't take extra damage from bows anyway.

Level Narcian or another flyer with the skills to take down either of the pagasi in one round so they won't drag you back. The pegasi have high natural speed + darting speed so they're gonna double you unless you have sword/lance breaker. Once they drag you back Michalis will fuck you up. But if you kill them the entire team's strategy falls apart and you can kill Michalis before he charges his aoe special with a strong red unit. The side units aren't anything special.

Olivia:

By inheriting the "compatibility strengthening" or "the sword of the Asahi" to Olivier to the dancer who can fight with compatibility , Hector becomes stable and it becomes possible to carry out the role firmly as well as "dance" It is a very excellent unit.
Moreover, it makes it easier to use dancing in the relief course etc.

Some German translation quirk that carried over from the German translation of Shadow Dragon.
...don't really know why the German translation cherry-picks names to change while keeping other names as is, though. Though sometimes, I feel like pronounciation is sometimes the reason for the change.
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
To be honest, the only thing I do know 100% about the German translation (and European translations in general) is that the translated script is extremely close to the japanese original instead of being a more liberal improvisation like the american translation (for better or worse).

Post by: Byakko on March 23, 2017, 01:07:38 pm
Why is Caeda called Shiida in your game?
Quick Google guess says it's because her Japanese name is spelled Shiida. How do you pronounce Caeda ? I wouldn't have pronounced it Shiida had I known the character before seeing this.
and Fi was localized into Phai (probably to keep the american pronounciation)
... Again, because the Japanese spelling is fai as in fa - ee. It's not changed to fi because non English languages wouldn't naturally pronounce the i the way English does.

5000 feathers for log-in bonus, wow, that's nice. That being said, I wish there were an alternative way to 5* someone, because feathers go down way too fast when you need to 4* many units so that others can inherit better skills from them when you burn them.

Oh I thought we were only talkin bout 4 to 5
I got Ursula from 3 to 4 and Anna from 2 to 4

I wanna make Ursula good but I got no clue how

Giving her Odin's tome preferably the 5* version works great for her or building a pony emblem team but that requires you have Gunter and Cecilia I believe, plus another horse unit which you would probably want a red which I believe are only Stahl, Cain and that recent 5 star red guy from the last banner there is Leo as well but you probably don't want 3 mages for that team. Doing both of those things makes her truly shine.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on March 23, 2017, 07:24:19 pm
The real backbone of a Gronnblade Horse Emblem team is Reinhardt, or at least his skill. Without a couple of heroes with goad cavalry you won't get the best mileage out Ursula or any other mounted mage.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Moon Girard on March 23, 2017, 07:53:10 pm
Yea building an all Calvary team is definitely niche I mean the one I just suggested requires you 5 star both Nino and Odin to sacrfire them to give Cecilia and Ursula their weapons and If you do want it to be the best it can you do need Reinhardt. but this also means FRobin can destroy your whole team for free since Gunter would be the only non mage if you want to use Ursula. Personally I thinking making a team of nothing but one type is a bad idea in general anyway. Giving Ursula Odin's tome should be enough if you want to use her though I've been using mine without Odin's tome and it's working out fine though Julia does do all the heavy lifting on my team in arena so that may be why.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on March 24, 2017, 10:44:37 pm
Looking at the stats of the enemy units, there's Michalis with insane HP and high def but terrible res so you probably want to toss a red mage at him, a flying spear with low def so send him Narcian, Minerva (or Michalis if you can build the 3* fast enough), then two sword units with low def so a strong spear unit should be fine (Peri, Sharena, Ephraim, but a strong blue mage like Reinhardt apparently works), and finally a spear unit with low res so green mage. Everyone is 5*, so you need as many 5* yourself as possible. They have crazy high stats.
In other words, sword users are useless, archers won't work on Michalis, and Minerva is fine. So basically, the current focus seems pretty bad.
I'm still finishing up my 4* Tharja and trying to get my Ephraim somewhere to see if he can top my Peri - at least stats-wise, those enemy stats are tough to match. Seriously, IINM Michalis has 60 HP, 51 ATK, 36 DEF, I have 3 lv40 5* and none of them come anywhere close to that in either of these stats.

BTW, I've noticed that the enemies in the training tower have started using skill inheritance too, non-generic units have randomized skills that they're not supposed to have, it's getting seriously irritating. Thanks for the hidden can of worms there.
Man, the AI and enemy setups sure love to be the absolute cheapest motherfucker in every aspect.

training tower enemies always had inherited skills before players could do it. early in the game i remember fighting a saizo with takumi's close counter skill and thinking "damn why don't people think saizo is top tier" but then saw he doesn't have that skill anywhere

sometimes it works in your favor because i also saw an azura with some rally skill instead of sing

I find grinding in Arena to be more effective. Even though the teams are random you can tell what a non generic unit can do at first glance and they won't have fake stats.

Post by: Byakko on March 25, 2017, 01:54:17 am
Just went and beat Michalis on lunatic. Narcian started with a bait and kill on the flying lance, Peri intercepting the cavalry sword, Clarine to heal her (enough to survive the flying sword which would otherwise kill her), and the critical point is that Marth blocked but didn't attack Mickey at the bottom of the wall, while Peri blocked the flying sword at the top, protecting Clarine and Narcian. Not attacking Mick meant not decreasing his special countdown, thus surviving the following attack, enough for Clarine to heal Marth, then finish off Mick. Narcian and Peri cleaned out the last horseman.
That said, my Marth has Escucheon, short countdown defensive special, that helped, between Clarine and his own heal on top.

The enemy units were OP cheat, but honestly the map was far less bullshit than the Ursula map. That corridor with ninjas that attack then retreat, man. The Mick map was interesting.

Is anyone else having trouble with defense? I'm not gonna get a single feather at this rate. I guess it's a side effect of SI making everyone broken and the general playerbase having access to better heroes.
 
Back in the past seasons I struggled to reach 3,000 points and breaking a streak was painfully common. I'm currently sitting at 4,450 points and my team hasn't lost a single match this season (gave up quite a few times, though).
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on March 25, 2017, 03:32:09 am
yeah i don't have shit on defense this week. at this rate i've been thinking of making my defense team a bunch of good 4 star units so i'm matched up with someone that might lose.

skill inheritance made my tharja broken because i gave her desperation, which means that if she's attacking and her health is under 75% she'll do her two attacks in a row (like a brave weapon). she naturally has high speed and she gets her stats boosted by eirika and azura. she destroys pretty much everything, even most blue mages. vantage might be a problem if she's attacking someone that received some damage, but that's usually not the case. i don't think i've ever lost an arena match with this setup
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on March 25, 2017, 04:25:41 am
I'm kind of sad that I wasn't able to get Minerva when pulling for the banner h8usomuchdarkflare, but then with all the extra units I pulled I was able to realize that I had the true Minerva all along.

(http://i.imgur.com/zzuTYwU.png)

Not done yet, but basically the gist of what I wanted with her. I had to decide between Death Blow or Iote Shield and chose the latter due to her base attack (with a +Atk/-Res nature) being high enough already. I also alternate between Draw Back or Quick Riposte in the B-slot.

Is anyone else having trouble with defense? I'm not gonna get a single feather at this rate. I guess it's a side effect of SI making everyone broken and the general playerbase having access to better heroes.

It's funny though for my case. Last week, I was only able to get one successful defense quite literally at the last minute before Arena closed last Monday. But this week I was able to get 7 successful defenses at the time of this posting with 3 days left in the season. My team was the same one I used last week, with the only changes being I gave Nino Death Blow and Desperation while I gave Triangle Adept to Ninian.

So this has been working out pretty well for me
(http://i.imgur.com/lMEBOJe.png)
Savage Blow does good DPS to everyone close to her target so all I need to do is place Ogma in front to block off attackers
Bowbreaker takes care of dudes like Jeorge and Klein,I still haven't run into a Takumi in arena to try it out on
HP+4 will prolly be replaced with something if I find something good(Darting Blow or Death Blow i guess?),and New Moon/Luna just nukes people
I don't know what to do with Assassins Bow tho.I get Assassins Bow+ as 5* but idk if there's anything better (Would Killer Bow do well?I already have a bunch of Niles,so if that works that's great)

Current team is Ogma,Takumi,Setsuna and Ursula.I didnt do anything to the other 3 yet but I'll prolly buff Ursula and then Ogma,Takumi is good as he is

Also I just ran into a team of 3 Marths and an Effie and all 4 of them had wings of Mercy and this was absolutely terrifying
Imagine them just teleporting all over the place,jesus

Post by: TrinitroRoy on March 26, 2017, 12:43:54 pm
Looking at the stats of the enemy units, there's Michalis with insane HP and high def but terrible res so you probably want to toss a red mage at him, a flying spear with low def so send him Narcian, Minerva (or Michalis if you can build the 3* fast enough), then two sword units with low def so a strong spear unit should be fine (Peri, Sharena, Ephraim, but a strong blue mage like Reinhardt apparently works), and finally a spear unit with low res so green mage. Everyone is 5*, so you need as many 5* yourself as possible. They have crazy high stats.
Well damn, the best red mage I have and will ever have is a 3-Star Sophia... :-\
At least I do have Sharena, and I heard Cherche is a good Minerva replacement as well (P.S.: I have a 3-Star Cherche).
Now, about the green mage: 4-Star Nino (I can quickly make my 3-Star Nino into a 4-Star one) or 4-Star Cecilia?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on March 26, 2017, 12:55:09 pm
Forget the 3*, they don't stand a chance. My 4* Tharja and Cecilia weren't enough either (Tharja still couldn't one-shot Mich and just instantly died, and Cecilia because the last blue guy arrives late and if everyone else isn't ready to ambush his ass then you probably already lost, so she wasn't that useful), so I switched for a sword tank and a healer to block Mich (make sure he can't trigger his special).
You didn't get at least the 3* Narcian ? 3* Cherche will just die. 4* Cherche if you boost her high damage even higher with a better weapon or a Triangle Adept, maybe. Armor break is useless in this fight, so Narcian would be better.

But seriously, if your best guys are still 3*, what are you doing even considering anything in the lunatic range. Hit the training tower and raise your people. Hasn't it been like a month since I told you that (http://mugenguild.com/forum/msg.2331492) already ? If you play this casually and don't plan to raise your units, why do you care about the lunatic missions.

It's a crapshoot. I finally got a defense win on Friday with my Julia/Lyndis/Perri/Tharja team and Tharja is the only non 5* in that group. I swapped to Julia/Effie/Olivia/Tharja(Which Julia is the only 5*) and got a win on Saturday and 2 more the next day.

Curiously, despite the difference in rating points, both teams scored about the same amount of Defense points.

Been considering burning my feathers to upgrade my Effie to 5*. Checked IVs and it was +Res/-HP. The Res boon is nice but I'm worried that the HP bane could be a problem.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on March 28, 2017, 03:29:10 am
Doesn't Effie have among the highest HP/def stats of the game ? According to that evaluation of her (http://altema.jp/fe-heroes/chara/127) on that Japanese site (I haven't actually checked the numbers but that's what they say). Having a minus shouldn't be a big deal, trading for res is a good thing since they also say she has shit res. If you actually have enough for a 5*, Effie is apparently a really good pick, they have her at top tier (they give her a score of 92/100, however they calculate that).
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on March 28, 2017, 03:38:58 am
+RES is a decent nature considering she's one of the rare heroes who get a +4 boon.

Effie is one of the best units in the game because she has huge armor BST, a better stat apread than her peers and access to 2 of the best skills in the game: wary fighter and death blow. Definitely worth the feathers.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on March 28, 2017, 03:59:31 am
I was debating whether to 5* Michalis, Olivia, or Effie, but you guys helped me decide on Effie. I just pulled a +Atk Minerva, and I still have Ninian to cover my dancing needs so I guess it's the most logical choice right now. Though I do intend to 5* those two later on.

After this revelation, I found out the Effie I pulled is +Atk and now I am very tempted to sacrifice my 5* Abel to give her Brave Lance+.

Michalis is a beast too. As soon as I get enough feathers I'm promoting him. I already have a movelist planned for him:

This tweet was apparently deleted already and replaced with the one teasing the new banner similar to the one in the official FE:H twitter.

These "new" characters will be different from their main counterparts as they will be sporting a different look and most likely a different weapon, similar to Christmas Robin who wields a Christmas Tree as a weapon.

My problem with the Night Sky/Astra line of special skills is that it increases the damage based on...the damage, therefore it can be severely hampered by many factors such as defenses and Triangle Advantage/Disadvantage.

I gave my Minerva, Draconic Gaze since the damage increase is based on her Atk stat and is applied after damage calculations which means it's a flat increase that can't be decreased in any way outside of maybe Special Defensive skills like Pavise.

Long story short, Special Attacks like Dragonic Gaze that increases damage based on your characters stats will always do damage to the opponent even when your normal attacks would normally do 0 damage to the enemy, something that Night Sky/Glimmer/Astra can't do.

if that's gonna be the focus for the next two weeks i'm just gonna use my orbs now. i'm fine with regular ass lucina and camilla

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on March 29, 2017, 02:37:55 am
I find the specials based on res the worse to deal with because the few units with high res generally already have a decent special (my highest res is I think Peri and her Glimmer is usually enough), and those who need a strong special like 50 to 80% of a stat generally have a shitty res - specifically. Looking at you, Saizo, I can't find a way to make you deal relevant damage beside the poison.

The anti-Michalis banner fucked off as fast as he did, and we're left with the same terrible banner that's been overstaying its welcome since a week ago already.

The pegasi, Hawkeye, Fae, Sanaki, Eliwood and a few others get a healthy damage boost from Iceberg at a reasonable 3 turn charge (2 for Hawkeye). It's a shame healers can't inherit it, because it'd make them almost useful. Bonfire has a much better coverage since everyone and their mother has over 30 def.

I really dislike glimmer/astra and luna/moonbow (reddit loves this shit). The former are (usually) only useful for overkill, the later are (usually) only useful in completely uphill battles. The only reason my Lucina still has Luna is Hector.

The Navarre map looks more or less the same as the one we saw when he appeared during the direct.

I've been neglecting the Grand Hero battles since I never really bothered training anyone past level 20.
But I'm gonna be grinding to bring my units up to speed this time.  I NEED Navarre.

Interesting, the April quests aren't divided with Normal/Hard/Lunatic difficulties, so you can aim straight for the harder/tedious challenges without having to do the easy ones first. I hope this becomes the standard for the monthly quests.

Spring Lucina is really nice but-desu Linde has just 1 less speed and her weapon is stronger. That extra damage really does the difference in plenty of match ups:

I decided I might as well re-roll my game since apparently, my save file in general vanished into the ether despite linking it to my Nintendo account should have stopped that-desudesu

So I might as well start over and re-roll until I get good units or atleast 2 5 stars on a single team rather than just two:

For now I have only 1 5 star base(Sakura), 4 4 star bases(Marth, Seliph(who I swear think is Marth's son or something-desudesu way too similar), Stahl and Gunter) and the rest are meh 3 star bases.

Since I gained like 20 orbs just by logging in, might as well take advantage and hope I can get a few 5 star bases or even the easter egg characters.

EDIT: VERY NEXT RE-ROLL, 2 Five Star Bases and from this event too. Unfortunately for me, they are both Xander and Chrom(when I wanted Lucina and Carmillia...fate fucks me in mysterious ways).

got 5 four star bases and 2 of them are females(Puri and Erikia, Fae is probably a girl but I'm not going to pretend s/he may be a trap lol) so it's not a massive loss, although having this event Chrom AND gaining a 4 Star normal Chrom at the same time...eh... it's like a waste of a summon for that one).

I went ahead and summoned again(spent a lot more money that I should have honestly). Pulled a +att -def Camilla. Is it worth it to build up a unit to 5* just to steal their tome? Right now she has triangle adept 2, vantage 3(working on it), and Camilla's aoe 3rd skill. I plan to give her moonbow, but I dont have it yet. I have to dump so much sp into her just to give her a usable skillset and Im not sure it is worth all the effort.

Lucina seems worth it though. I was tempted to give her fury 3, but it doesnt seem worth all the sp. Probably going to give her vantage and not sure for a c(threaten res?).

Im probably going to hold off on summoning again till Ike comes

Grand Hero Battle for Navarre is out. Already completed Lunatic and it's not as hard as the previous Grand Battles (I'm looking at you Ursula). If there's one tip I can give you, it's that you should approach from the bottom so you can funnel them easier.

Eldigan with a Dancer and possibly a healer.

On a serious note all these units are free units so you should have them as long as you actually bothered to do get them and didn't send them home or used them for SI.

Who do you even have. It's not like anyone can reasonably (and non-jokingly) tell you "get Takumi, Ryoma, Hector etc." because you can't actually go and get them. Roll if you must and see who you get.
Get a red mage for that asshole green axe, get a dancer maybe, probably get a flyer, and get a heavy physical hitter who can OHKO the ninjas (the dancer helps). Navarre has high HP but rather bad def *and* res so anyone blue should work, although his high speed and good attack would say try to kill him before he reaches you, so maybe a blue mage (instead of the dancer I suppose). Girard posted a video doing the job with the 3* you can get for free if you completed the special maps (not the Grand Hero Battles).
And yes, do everything Darkflare said.

Spoiler: Navarre GHB play by play (click to see content)
Don't think my strategy for this one will help many. I did SIed Pivot into Effie which helped reposition her once she​ baited the ninja and triggered the AI to start moving.
I had Donnel move in and Olivia danced him to strike and KO the first ninja. Drag back made sure only the second ninja could attack him and he barely hanged on. Once he took out the second ninja he switched with Tharja so she could kill the axe as Effie cleaned Navarre and his cleric on the left side.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on April 05, 2017, 04:55:25 am
Well, turns out it was a bit useful to roll 15 Selenas and Gwendolyns, to inherit Drag Back and Reposition on Ephraim.
5* Ephraim took the bait position (and ended with 7 HP), 4* Tharja sitting at the bottom next to the mountains until the last minute waiting for the axe, lv29 3* Olivia danced all day long for Ephraim, lv40 4* Sharena blocked Navarre - but as with Michalis, neither Sharena nor Tharja (behind her) attacked first, just tanking like a boss, until the very last minute to avoid triggering Navarre's special that killed Olivia between Sharena and Ephraim in all my previous attempts. Sharena ended with low HP too, that was tight.
Ephraim took out both ninjas with three attacks in two turns (one dance), Sharena blocking Navarre and the axe behind him until he tired his HP out (without using his special) on Sharena to kill him and the axe fast enough (a dance got Sharena away just after killing Navarre for Tharja to OHKO the axe), and the Cleric was the last one standing but he got lost in the woods (he came down from the right at the start, not from the top, because all my guys were grouped at the bottom) and got gangbanged the second he finally stepped out of it (dragged out by Ephraim and finished by Sharena).
This consumes a lot of stamina to try a strategy over and over until you can fine tune every single step... And now that this battle is done, inheriting those skills onto Ephraim might be a bit of a waste, but a hard hitting super tank that can drag a unit out can have its use. It's just that he didn't necessarily need all that before.

Oh, yeah, I rolled 3* Beruka, 4* Jakob and 4* Cain too ; along with (regular) Camilla last time, I really like some of those designs.

Now the question is...should I keep my 3-Star Olivia in my team (4-Star Caeda, 4-Star Sophia, 4-Star Olivia, 5-Star Hector), or should I make my 4-Star Female Corrin inherit Olivia's Dance ability for a bootleg Ninian (since I don't have the actual Ninian) and put her instead?

Olivia doesn't need to be high level in the Navarre battle, she shouldn't have to fight anyone. 5* Hector should be able to kill the ninjas with Olivia's help IF you can give him someone's drag back (I think you'll get ambushed by the axe if you don't have that skill), but there's little chance that Caeda will survive Navarre long enough to kill him. Low def, not class advantage, her only good point is the speed which will prevent Navarre from hitting twice, just hope that it's enough to kill him before he kills her on the hard level (not a chance in lunatic). Defend once with Caeda, then attack with Sophia then Caeda, and even if that kills him, hope the axe doesn't finish off Caeda.
Oh, yeah, if Hector and Caeda aren't lv40, you're probably surely going to die in three turns.

Went Camilla because I intend to get extra feathers and need every advantage I can get. Also plot. Been seeing a lot of friendly Shareenas though.
Might end up lending Julia. Much easier to use than Effie even if I gave her Pivot to help out with the mobility weakness and she already deletes anything with low res or is a blue unit, if not severely cripple them.

It's easier to get a higher rank on a losing team, but in the end it doesn't add up. Most people will get at least 1000 per round plus 500 for each win

Joining weaker teams is a legitimate strategy, if you play to log in religiously and make the most ou of your flags. I was checking one reddit thread and a guy had was ranking in the top 10,000 (1300 feather) in team Cherche with only roughly enough points to make it into top 70,000 (700+500 guaranteed) in team Camilla. Joining team Minerva, saving some flags in the first two rounds and going all out in the final would probably yield the best feather output.

round 1
scored about 70,000 points
earned 26,111th place (1300+500 feathers)

Post by: Byakko on April 09, 2017, 12:48:13 am
Well, congrats on the story mode and the GHB. I don't have Hector and never used him, so I actually forgot his ranged counter might work fine on the ninjas without needing drag back ; that might not have been a great advice, but that's clearly how you get good at this game, you learn to use your unit's skills properly and you plan hard around it, then try again and again until you get the right positions step by step.
Hopefully you understand the grind to level up your characters and you stop asking about notoriously tough maps with lv30 units. Find someone with skills you're comfortable with and grind that unit up to lv35, then do it again for an other one, and use 2 or 3 of those to finish reaching lv40.

Hm, I just checked my arena defense results, last week after the rush of skill inheritance I still had a dozen successful defenses, but this round, not a single one. Either everyone got better or everyone stopped attacking me (it's a pity you can't tell the difference). I know there's at least one guy that I constantly come across nearly every day in arena, who must have like 3 or 4 accounts, エクラ, whom I stopped attacking because he has basically all the OP units (he also pops 3 times in the voting gauntlet rankings near me), but I really don't think I have OP units myself.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 09, 2017, 02:56:25 am
Slap Fury 3 on one of your heroes.

Going after stronger teams might seem contradictory to getting easy wins, but people in the higher BST tiers are more likely to give up if one of their units fall (they all go after deathless streaks). I've gotten multiples victories a week after giving Nowi that skill.

Look at them frustrated whales

They wanna remove the daily +1 Orbs and make it so you just get Orbs from the daily quest or the events or monthly quests.
It's their way of getting you to pay up and buy orbs,but as long as you run the training tower a couple of times a day you'll get your daily Orb

Those games would get way too much heat if they tried that so generally they don't. There's no way FEH is trying that when it's having a good run so far.
Oh, and now I wish there were a way to keep getting SPs. That 5* Chrom with his Aether that costs 500 SP, plus other skills that cost 200 and 300, and everyone else waiting with inherited skills but they're already sitting at lv40, there's no way I ever unlock all that.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on April 11, 2017, 02:56:10 pm
Yeah, 3 at a time. I gave up giving Narcian a hammer a long time ago (I got other armor crushing axes since then), and Chrom is waiting for 510 SP just for his own skills that I put on hold even after Aether, and only 5 levels to go before the cap. It'll take months. And let's not even talk about rolling another Chrom to merge and get 20~40 SP.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on April 11, 2017, 03:02:34 pm
Yea, my Julia and Tharja have over 1k left over SP and both of them have all their skills learned including a few extra inherited ones.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 11, 2017, 03:16:01 pm
SP shortage is one of the reasons I never maxed the castle (that and dimishing returns), the extra experience is actually detrimental on the long run as farming SP is way easier in the lower levels.
Chrom is waiting for 510 SP just for his own skills that I put on hold even after Aether, and only 5 levels to go before the cap. It'll take months
If you remove his special and stick to (current Chrom lvl-6) lvl quest you should get enough SP for his base kit in a few days. I needed like 1500 SP after promoting Michalis and farmed them in a week.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on April 11, 2017, 04:10:37 pm
As in hitting more often and killing less, while sure enough to not get killed ? I'll look into that. I just spent a dozen crests (out of 70 piled up as I only used one per day until now) I've got like a dozen SP with single hits, I'm not sure that's really effective. And then sometimes I get a blue lv40 with 3 lv2s and I'm wiped with no SP gained. That being said, I managed to reach 3k dueling points in a go, that was rare, I usually go with my all lv40 team and even with all hard wins and only a couple of deaths, I barely pass 2k points. I don't get how the points are calculated.
On a bridge, I had Chrom as a wall, a healer, and a dancer all lined up, it was pretty hilarious until the wyvern guy reached my lv2 healer.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 11, 2017, 04:52:23 pm
Uh, you're grinding in the arena? that's pretty inefficient. If you want SP fast you need to hit the training tower. You'll have to burn hundreds of crests to match a single stamina at your current rate.

If the strata around your level are all blue pick the first stratum and quit, they'll reset. The enemies level in each stratum are +/- 2-3 of the recommended level. You'll get 3 SP for defeating enemies that are 1-6 levels below your Chrom (or higher than him). The reason I recommended removing his special is because killing an enemy with it grants extra experience, and again, leveling up too fast is bad. When you do level up you'll get 18 to 24 extra SP at once.

By the way the arena matches you with teams that have roughly the same BST as your own. The only way to score high in it is to use one of the season's bonus heroes. They double your score.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on April 11, 2017, 05:03:44 pm
I don't normally farm through arena, like I said I only use one crest a day to finish the daily quests, I had 70+ crests laying there. Meanwhile I have 3 teams that I'm leveling (when the colors or level range for a given floor is bad for the corresponding team, I do another team on another floor, it's good enough), so I run out of stamina at an alarming rate, and I don't have any more potion. I blaze through the tower whenever I can - but it never seemed to give me much SP beside straight leveling up.
... The bonus for recommended arena units is double ?! God damn.

with the arena feathers i just got i can upgrade someone else and i'm wondering who
It seems you don't do with many mages, personally I'd go with Ursula out of these but that's because tits and I find the alternatives boring.
Oh yeah, while I'm at it, how good is that 5* Beruka ? I have a 3* one, I really like her design but her skill set is kinda bad and her one good point seem to be being a tank, I really don't know if I should 4* her. Did you upgrade her or did you get her straight at 5* ? Is she useful ?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on April 11, 2017, 10:50:05 pm
it should be a mage because i only have tharja as it is, but i'm not in a rush because her damage output if she starts the turn next to eirika is ridiculous. and if she has taken some amount of damage then desperation 3 will trigger (at 75% or less which lets her strike twice in a row if she's starting the attack). considering the speed buff from eirika and darting blow her attacking speed is 47. she kills pretty much everything regardless of color.

i got beruka in the wyvern riders focus. it could've been any of the other three, but it is what it is...
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
she has very good defense, but her speed sucks. she's probably good at blocking the path for physical blue units but nothing much else. as for her skills, defiant def would put her defense at 44 which is very good. lunge swaps her position with the enemy's, which would probably put her in more trouble, in range to mages or archers. with skill inheritance she might be decent (like giving her quick riposte or a breaker skill so she can hit twice, and a better offensive skill like bonfire to take advantage of her high def) but otherwise i wouldn't bother. you might have other units that make better use of those skills
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 11, 2017, 11:44:02 pm
I'd go with MRobin if I were you. The easiest way for you to lose atm is taking a stray hit from Klein, Reinhardt or Linde before you have time to position Eirika and Tharja. Robin with triangle adept and b tome breaker covers those weak spots.

seals can be equipped/unequipped however you want. you can give a seal to a unit and then take it away and give it to someone else. the quests to get the seals seem fun too, you're given some characters and you have to make them defeat units of certain levels

1. Olivia w/ Ruby Sword+

I'd actually be more embarrassed if I post my roster, but I'm glad we can agree that Olivia's artwork isn't that good and is actually one of the reasons why I'm hesitating since I find Michalis and Hana more appealing to the eyes.

For references sake, even though Olivia is an option I already have Ninian and just wanted Olivia so I can easily exchange Ninian out when I want to while still having a dancer if I wanted to run a different blue unit like Ephraim or Nowi. I even fed the Palla I pulled from the Pegasus banner just so I can give her a Ruby Sword+ which definitely cemented her into being brought to 5* once I have the feathers (same thing with Hana with her Wo Dao+).

New Banner and Paralogues are out.

It's funny that I was able to pull Alm, Clair, and Faye from the banner, but I was most excited in finding out the Setsuna I pulled is +Spd/-Def. Now I can finally go about making that Quad Shooting Setsuna I've always wanted.

Another funny thing happened yesterday and I decided to give my Eirika Sword Breaker before I went to bed. When I woke up, I realized I had 6 successful defenses (going on 9 now). It's amazing to see how one skill can make all the difference.

Here's the Eirika I use. Kind of wanted to show her off, cause she's often labeled as nothing but support. Wanted to change that a bit and make her more offense oriented rather than just some buffing mule for my Nino and Bunnycina. Still need to grind for more SP to max out Sword Breaker.

(http://i.imgur.com/K1fMsrr.png)

Been looking for recommendations for Skills to give to Julia and Tharja and this is what I got so far.

Your Tharja is fine, but your Julia set up is kind of questionable to me. I know what you're trying to do, but I think Vantage is wasted on her considering her paper thin defenses (made even thinner thanks to LaD3) will mostly get her one shotted/one rounded before she has a chance to even use it not to mention it being completely useless if melee users gets within striking distance of her.

I also think Julia doesn't make good use of LaD3 as one of the better things she can do is tank a variety of magic attacks due to her high res stat, and without it she'll easily be dispatched by someone like Nino who can easily double her even with your speed.

What I would suggest is give her either Fury 3 or Triangle Adept for her A-Slot, and then Green Tome Breaker for her B-Slot, her C-Slot can be anything you want. Not only will she kill Blue/Dragon units even faster, it'll give her a better chance of taking out other green tome users. It's the load out I use for my Julia.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on April 14, 2017, 12:43:45 pm
Triangle seems like a waste for Julia since her absurd attack means she's wiping out any blues that don't have high res without it anyway. LnD was more to cover her low speed as she's already frail to melee. But I'll swap it out to give back her magic tanking.

G. Tome breaker could be useful but other than Julia the only other "common" Green tome user is Nino and that one is decided by who initiates the attack first.

It's like wary fighter (prevents follow ups) but only works on initiation and additionally it prevents slower physical units from counter attacking at all. Basically Alm has one free attack against any non-mage unit slower than him at the cost of never doubling anyone on initiation, meaning he can mess with Hector and any slow unit reliant on quick riposte.

It could be a decent skill for brave weapon users with moderately high speed like Raven or Ogma.

Triangle seems like a waste for Julia since her absurd attack means she's wiping out any blues that don't have high res without it anyway. LnD was more to cover her low speed as she's already frail to melee. But I'll swap it out to give back her magic tanking.

G. Tome breaker could be useful but other than Julia the only other "common" Green tome user is Nino and that one is decided by who initiates the attack first.

While Julia will make quick work of most blue units, she will still struggle effectively one shotting even with her high attack. Case in point would be Linde as with neutral IVs she would take around 29-30 damage against Julia which isn't enough, even Male Robin will survive with around 3 HP. Triangle Adept will make this happen and even though it's a double edged sword, you should be avoiding red units with her to begin with.

Green Tome Breaker works regardless of who initiated the attack first, as long as you have the appropriate amount of HP for it. The only other worthwhile B-Slot skills for Julia would be Quick Riposte and Renewal.

Post by: Foobs on April 14, 2017, 07:26:22 pm
I really wouldn't recommend quick riposte for Julia, that's a skill for slow units that have the bulk to take a hit. Julia's so frail you wouldn't want her baiting anything but blue mages. All archers kill her before quick riposte kicks in, thanks to triangle adept she can't even scratch red mages and the follow up from quick riposte is overkill on all blue mages but Olwen (edit: scratch that, it also works on Ursula on Odin).

I'd go with Fury/Life and Death + Lance breaker. Kills almost every blue unit and unlike triangle adept builds she can still kill some red units.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on April 14, 2017, 08:26:44 pm
Quick Riposte is actually great to help her bait other mages due to her naturally high res.

I run a two dancer/two blade tome team so I built my mages a little differently, but here's a general setup for Tharja:
Quote
WEAPON: Rauðrblade+
ASSIST: Reciprocal Aid/Ardent Sacrifice
SPECIAL: Moonbow
A: Fury over Darting Blow. You should be running buffs with Tharja so I'm assuming you have a Hone Speed user. Fury buff + Hone/Rally SPD buff will grant you the +6 SPD you'd get form Darting (+1 more actually), but also give you the other +3 stats from Fury while making it easier to get to the Desperation threshold. Darting doesn't add to the Blade Tome buff if I remember right.
B: Desperation.
C: Hone SPD/ATK.
S: +SPD Seal over +ATK.

As for Julia, I don't have her myself so take it as you will:
Quote
WEAPON: Naga
ASSIST: Flexibile, but personally I'd think of using Draw Back/Reciprocal Aid/Ardent Sacrifice depending what you're running her with.
SPECIAL: Moonbow
A: Fury over Life and Death, definitely. Death Blow is a good alternative.
B: I'd personally go for G Tomebreaker for Nino/other Julias. Vantage is a good alternative if you can safely get her to the threshold.
C: Breath of Life can be okay.. not a bad pick, but if your units are getting OHKO'd, it'd probably be best to just take a Hone/Fortify skill or Threaten Res. If it's working out for you though, you can keep it.
S: +ATK

I got the worst unit of the banner imo(the flier who has nothing special going for her). I kind of wanted Alm, but he seems like he is a really niche unit. His ability seems like it will hurt him a lot since it wont be triggered if he is outsped right? His base speed is like 30? So he is outsped by a lot of common threats. He would need to be on a dancer team(Id probably run something like a blade tome, double dancer, Alm, but you would probably be better off running a 2nd blade tome?)

I kind of want Lucas though. A lot of bulk with normal movement. Kind of wish I didnt summon though

Post by: Foobs on April 17, 2017, 09:36:42 pm
I actually pulled Alm (+SPD/-DEF). Windsweeper is really bad outside of specific set-ups like messing with Hector and units with quick riposte or killing slow units with vantage, and almost any other B skill would be better, but it might be useful in that fabled defense mode we've heard about? IDK.

Don't you worry about Takumi, he's not all that spectacular, If I were to pull him, I'd sac him in an instant to put his Close Counter ability to my boy Jeorge in an instant. Such is the hate for dealing with him numerous times in the arena. :P lol

This is my team:
(https://s26.postimg.org/v23lkvc0p/Fire_Emblem_Heroes_2017-04-17-18-01-36.png]http://)

Right now, I need to grind for more SP so I can fully implement all the characters specials:

Spring Camilly
1.Gronnraven+ (I'm coming for you Takumi and kagero)
2.Rally Attack (got to show some love)
3.New Moon/Moonbow (Pretty obvious by now
4.Triangle Adept 2
5.Vantage 2
6.Hone Attack 3

Ephraim
1.Siegmund
2.Reposition
3.Moonbow
4.(don't know what to get for him just yet)
5.Vantage 3
6.Threaten Def 3

Jeorge
1.Parthia
2.Drawback
3.Moonbow
4.Life and Death 2
5.Vantage 3
6.Hone Spd 3

Marth
1.Falchion
2.Pivot
3.Moonbow
4.Deathblow 2
5.(need more vantage, have escape route 3)
6.(have spur Spd 3 but need threaten speed 3)

also I did manage to pull Alm:
(https://s26.postimg.org/j4216z89l/Fire_Emblem_Heroes_2017-04-14-17-43-58.png])

Kinda wanted to pull Lukas as well, but I want to save some of my other orbs (59 right now, +the other flier mastery orbs once i get them) for the next half of the shadows of valentia banner.

I have Clair and to be honest, she's not even bad. She has the highest base speed of all the flying units so far with 36 and very respectable defenses as well. The only real problem she has is a low base attack of 26.

Also Clair has a unique trait of being the only unit in the game who actually gains a +4 stat boost to a positive IV in 3 different stats (HP, Atk, and Def) compared to some units who gain that +4 for one stat or none at all.

Yeah, I just looked at Takumi's stats and skills more and I don't see why he's rated so high on the tier list. Is it only because of Close Counter?

But yo, I gotta agree with Jeorge though. I pulled a 4 star right away when I first started playing, but he was weak against level 30+ units. However, I got lucky and pulled a 5 star Jeorge this Saturday and he's a BEEEAST. Close Counter would be an amazing skill for him.

He has rather good stats, between his good ATK and SPD he can hit really hard, and if he only receives a Vantage, you better one-shot him or have very hard hitting units / anti-colorless weapons lest he'll take down like 3 of your guys in quick succession before you realize. He's pretty hard to actually kill without that, especially when he gets in your bad range. Faster units to avoid getting double-shot also tend to be flying ones, which make easy target. Then there are tanks who will still take 2 hits before hitting back because they're slower, or high SPD units who tend to have lower DEF, neither will get out unscathed. There aren't a lot of units who hit fast, hard, and don't have a type disadvantage to something. Takumi is in that position, and he only needs Vantage.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on April 18, 2017, 11:14:12 pm
Okay, I figured as much. Jeorge's stats aren't too far off either. They both seem relatively the same in terms of stats if you don't include Takumi's close counter and likely having the better primary weapon of the two. The way I see it, he's basically Ryoma with range which is god like. And Vantage is just overkill. I agree!

That's where Ryoma and Olivia's dance comes in for me.  I've never struggled much with Takumi... thankfully. Including yourself, I've heard nothing but horror stories.

I got 4704 and would have been a flawless run if I didn't make the stupid mistake of leaving Ninian open so that Julia could pick her off.

Nope, like I said before I didn't touch Arena till just now since I was busy leveling up Setsuna. I took that screenshot after I burned all of my crests for a complete run, but the number of successful defenses I had before then was the same.

My Setsuna's been getting some work done and gave me 6 more successful defenses today (16 total). Though I have a theory as to why I've been getting so much. It may have to do with Setsuna/Bunnycina being my Team Leader and how it draws attention to more people to fight my team.

For example I know a bunch of people who try to stay away from matches that have say...a Hector, Takumi, etc. as their leader since they want an easy win for that no death flawless for maximum points. So when people see my Setsuna/Bunnycina as the lead character, most would assume it's an easy win cause I'm pretty sure not all of the people who play the game knows of these characters latent potential with Skill Inheritance. Then once they enter the match, they see my roided out Setsuna/Bunnycina as well as the rest of my team and probably get blind sided with some of the skills I gave them.

What I'm trying to say is that it's sort of similar how people intentionally put a weak character up front (like a healer) so people will be suckered into fighting like 3 Hectors.

What kind of damage and bonuses do you guys deal to one-shot the blue mage ? I send my Bunny Camilla with her 46 ATK and she still can't kill him in one turn. She has to dance away to survive the armor guys, and then there's still the red mage that will also keep 1 HP after a double hit from a maxed 5* Reinhardt with a Rally Attack boost (who also has to escape away from the knights afterward).

It'll be much easier if you can just out speed the Mage and kill her through a double attack than sheer force since your Bunilla would need a minimum of 61 Atk to even one shot that Blue Mage who has 45 HP and 28 Res.

In my case, Nino and Bunnycina had buffs for days thanks to Eirika and Ninian so they can easily one shot the red and blue mages thanks to their blade tomes.

That was fast

Free 3* beat Lunatic Zephiel

And again... With 3* Zephiel from Hard at only lv1 (including Cecilia trolling Zephiel at the end).
I knew it didn't feel right to take on the mages with mages since they have lower DEF than RES (and they can't hit back at close range) and it requires a mage with really high SPD, so drag back is again the solution.

Edit - well, it also relies on double hits through Donnel's Brave Lance. Even Ephraim still doesn't hit hard enough to one-shot the red mage, and then someone dies (I could dig for attack supports to see if one combination can work but that still takes time).
I suppose other Brave weapons could work but there aren't that many, Klein's Brave Bow still needs to be 5* to hit hard enough even with double hits...

Finally got a successful defense with 278 points. someone with a 5* sword unit that saw my all spear team and probably just gave up \o/ I tried an all axe team and and an all blue tome team for a couple days without any success, but all spear seems to work (Sharena 4*, then Lukas, Peri and Ephraim 5*). Lukas also took Ignis from a 4* Henry so he can deal high damage with his high DEF.
Oh, I also got 4* Zephiel. Took most of yesterday bringing Donnel on the fast track to ~lv36, he still couldn't one-shot the red mage but it was enough for Tharja to finish that and survive. It wasn't quite like the 3* video above because the blue mage and Zephiel waited on the top left side for ever and I took some damage, but it worked out.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Her overall IVs aren't terrible. If I can find good use for her team-comp wise, she might get the next set of feathers.

I think everyone who's posted about it said they beat it.

I def skimmed the last page a bit. Only few were successful though...

Anyway, I'm having zero luck with it. I'm not sure how to stop the counters when initiating attacks. Speed boosts?

Maxed 3* Donnel wih his Brave Spear hits twice regardless of speed and has enough atk to kill the mages (at lv40, but not at 36). The alternatives are mages with super high spd for double hits and enough atk, that's what people here have used (Nino, Nowi, Julia, I've heard of Lilina too...), but there are too few of them. There are other Brave weapons, but I confirmed that Klein at 4* still doesn't hit hard enough, and I'm not sure Raven's Brave axe could kill the red mage. Reinhardt wasn't even enough to kill with double hit either back when I tried with him. My maxed 5* Tharja made up for the remaining HPs of the mages after non-lv40 Donnel and survived the counter, but I wouldn't expect everyone to have her. She also wasn't in a good position when I tried with Reinhardt (edit - scratch that, I think Reinhardt actually dies to the red mage in one counter, how fucked up is that), Donnel's drag back helped for that.

I posted a video with the 3* you get for free : Raigh, Donnel, Olivia, Cecilia. You have to lv40 them. You might still have time if you haven't touched them if you spend all of tomorrow on that.

Hector pretty much ensures I always get the 3* as long as I pay attention. I don't typically get the 4, but I also don't care all THAT much about it. It's not that difficult to get enough feathers to bring them up after all.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 23, 2017, 03:11:10 am
I always aim for the 4* to have one unit to raise and another for skills; GHB heroes tend to have nice stuff: Narcian is the only unit to learn lancebreaker at 4*, femRobin is the only one to learn B tome breaker at 4* and Iote's shield is exclusive to Michalis.

Oh I pulled a Hana from the ba-holy shit she has an optimal IV spread! (+ATK/-RES). QuadHana here we come.

If you have hard hitting mages + dancer the Zephiel map is piss easy. Olivia is one of the daily heroes so you can at least get a dancer.

But otherwise, yea, you might have some trouble

Dunno much of what I did initially, but I kinda used the same strat from the Free 3 vid.

I had Nowi/Ryoma absorb damage from the Mages to counter and activate their Vantage, then used Jeorge to finish them off. From there it was easy pickings. Used Jeorge as bait to pepper down the rest of them and Ryoma to keep the green knight shuffling. Jeorge/Olivia were the real MVPs.

It says that there will be special missions to befriend them (I guess that's a paralogue story for each or one for both). I assume they'll do the same for Narcian and Ursula later, they were damn hard for an early game, I wonder how much easier it'll feel now.

People really underestimate Buncina, do they? Too bad the arena team I use is consisted of members that won't bait anyone.

Out of curiousity, what's the rest of your Arena team?
Now that I say that, I wish they would add an option to fight friend's Arena teams even if there's no rewards in it.

Bunnycina only accounted for 10 of my successful defenses. The other 34 were from having Setsuna as my team lead.

Setsuna is def a dark horse. The Jack of all trades for Archers. From the sounds of it, I don't think many have caught on yet.

I've only made one defense this week against a Julia team. So I'm gonna try to bait with Olivia and see if that works. How does the system update your team anyway? do you have to win all 7 matches in a row?

Welp, managed to beat Normal Mode FemRobin with ease, with an Alfonse in the team that did nothing at all (my LVL40 Takumi and LVL38 Olwen did all the work).
But hey, I go two 2-Star FemRobins out of that, so I ain't complaining. :P
However, since I also want the 3-Star FemRobin, what team would you guys suggest to me for the Hard Mode version?

Spoiler: Dragon Emblem Arena (click to see content)
For the quests where you Use F!Robin to kill Navarre and vice versa

F!Robin = Story mode 4-4 and 4-5
Navarre = Story mode 5-1
Save some stamina by killing them here.

You'll have to do their GHB for the Level 35 and 40 respectively though.

Budget.

Lucina, Hana, Karel and others could do everything he does (and much better) but if you don't have them/are short on feathers he already has desperation 3 and killing edge+ at 5*.

The arena closes in half an hour. This week I got three cool victories, one against a dude leading with an underleveled 3* Est, another earlier today against an underleveled 4* FemRobin and just one against a dude who seemingly knew what he was doing (lvl 40 5* Marth with suboptimal SI).

4 defense wins this week for me. One early in the week, one midweek and last 2 these last 2 days.

Had Effie as my lead in the end. Maybe I'll stick with her as the lead for Arena to bait people thinking of easy kiting only for surprise mage support.

Post by: Magical Amber on April 25, 2017, 03:10:05 am
I was able to get a grand total of 46 successful defenses for the week inb4 none next season. Been contemplating if I should go Flier Emblem for tomorrow with Clair as my team lead, or just stick with Team Setsuna.

Also can anyone explain to me how the hell the Spur/Goad/Ward buffs works? I swear none of them proc after battle even though all of my allies are within range of the buffer. The only "Spur" type buff that I've ever seen working for me is Sanaki's Cymbeline effect.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on April 25, 2017, 03:38:43 am
You're right, they don't proc after battle. Spur/goad/ward only work during combat, like death/darting/armored/warding blow.  That's why you can stack many of them at once. Cymbeline works like hone attack and rally attack, and as such is bit less useful outside of barblade setups.

You can test it by moving your buffer around. The damage will go up (or down) if you check the combat screen, even though the attacker's stat screen has no bonus on it.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on April 25, 2017, 04:27:42 am
Oh wow, I never knew they were passive "-blow" buffs for your allies. That actually makes me want to use them now. I often thought it was a buff similar to the Hone/Fortify variety, but only applied it after battle.

It's also good to know that they're stackable. No wonder it's a staple for Flier/Armor/Horse Emblem builds.

I'm assuming that Ike's and Titania's skill descriptions mean Ike's cooldown is reduced by one and Titania's enemy's is increased ? Because it's phrased like the other way around. Checking the Japanese version on the Twitter it's not a translation problem (uh, Titania is Tiamat in Japanese, cool)

+1 charge per attack is insane. That means that if Ike fights an enemy that's both weaker and slower than him he can charge aether or any other 5 turn special in a single round.

it's worth noting that the trailer says "new story chapter" instead of "paralogue story" which might mean more orbs and more maps (maybe the black knight as an enemy to be added as a GHB later)

The new Story Chapter basically gives you a taste of the Defense Battles that are coming soon. By the way it looks, I like it and hopefully is a great way to farm SP.

Tried the new banner and pulled Titania, Mist, and 2 Ikes. Though while I was happy with those pulls, the best thing I got from it were a Ryoma and a +Spd Lyn. And with that my Fates sibling collection is complete....though I still need Normal Xander, but Spring Xander still counts.

Now for the real question...Fury or Life and Death on Ryoma? He's +HP/-Res btw.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: R565 on April 26, 2017, 03:10:45 pm
Think of it like this, do you want him to take hits, or do you want him to kill, cause usually red swords can stand up to certain things well. If I was in your shoes, I'd give him life and death and use him like a wait piece. Then again, fury builds give you a little of everything but damage you in turn but this is Ryoma we're talking about, he rushes in to things and of course he's one of the best sword units in FEH. All in all, what exactly do you want to do with him, if headlines, go fury, if you keep him in the back, life and death.

Edit: tried the banner and a got a 5* Minerva. Hell. Yes.

Looks like my luck is on recharge for this banner. Used the orbs I saved and the ones from the new story chapter + quests and the best I got was a 4* Reinhardt(Neutral stats). Great unit, but the recommended skills will​ take a while to obtain.

BTW, how's everyone's progress with the GHB quests? Only one I'm missing is having Navarre kill his Lunatic self. Having trouble finding out how to make him land the final blow and still complete the mission.

Robin was relatively easy (And by that I mean I only died 3 times before figuring it out)

Also during the Hero Fest event, we'll be able to get 2 orbs during first time log-ins until May 8th as well as a Double SP Event (6 SP instead for defeating enemies, 2 SP for healing) which lasts until May 7th.

Post by: Byakko on April 28, 2017, 08:37:21 pm
Comparing Ike's stats to Ryoma's, he has less SPD but more DEF, and the rest is very close. Aether heals him like crazy with his strength, Heavy Blade makes Aether come out more often (I think, I haven't actually needed to rely on it so far). Ryoma wants to kill first without getting hit, but when that's not enough against the hardest maps, Ike will live longer, being tankier with a heal. He can pick Wary Fighter instead of Vantage if you're worried about super fast units, coupled with the heal, it's even safer (but Vantage nullifies the mage threat so it depends on your team build).
I'm not saying Ike is better than Ryoma (I don't have him so I can't tell ;_; ) but he's definitely near the top of the game around him.

Got a +Atk -Res Azura(80 orbs) on my main account after like 5 summons with no blue orbs at all,which means I can now delete my second account which is a relief because having to do the missions on two accounts was a real pain I'll miss Spring Lucina and Eldigan though. Hoping Xander is great so I don't have to try for Ike or Ryoma so I can save my Orbs for Celica who hopefully is a red unit.

Infantry units can't use Wary Fighter.

I was cherry picking green and blue orbs and still found myself rolling Ryoma instead of Hector. He joins the happy 5* sword family of Chrom, Lucina, Seliph, Alm and Hana. It was a +DEF/-SPD Ryoma, so he's basically Ike. I'm debating whether to give him fury/keep defiant atk and vantage to piss people off in the arena or darting blow + quick riposte to patch up his speed.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on April 29, 2017, 12:46:45 am
I'd definitely recommend Darting Blow. He's far more effective with SPD. You also can't go wrong with a Vantage build, but Riposte might be the better choice with your +DEF.

I'm not saying Ike is better than Ryoma (I don't have him so I can't tell ;_; ) but he's definitely near the top of the game around him.

Ike's Res is also lower by quite a bit (Ryoma's lowest Res = Ike's neutral Res). But I feel your pain dude, I would also like to compare but haven't landed Ike yet. Survivability is definitely on Ike's side outside of magic units. My Ryoma is +ATK/-Res and he just barely tanks the odd magic unit. They get crushed.

Post by: Byakko on April 29, 2017, 01:56:42 am
Vantage and Aether+Heavy Blade make his low Res a non issue though, what blue mages are there that can survive his ATK long enough to bypass his heal as long as you plan out your timing a little ? If only the OP units are a problem, it's not that much of a problem.
What I mean is, I was soloing (with a Dancer) stages 5 to 7 levels above his own when I was turboleveling him, and he practically soloed the Robin GHB with triple mages at lv37. I might try Ursula with him when she returns.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on April 29, 2017, 02:37:09 am
Your current build with Ike is exactly where I wanna make the comparison... :mcry:

Outside of OP blue units (mostly dragons), they can definitely wipe out most mages with little issues. I just mean when they're on the receiving end, it's almost never pretty. Especially if they counter and you still need them to take out Hector and/or Takumi later on for example. That's why I'm so curious about Ike's Aether+Heavy Blade with Vantage in terms of overall effectiveness and timing.

Post by: Titiln on April 29, 2017, 06:03:07 pm
there are situations in which ike would be better than ryoma and viceversa, but overall i'd think ike has more winning situations but not enough for me to try and get him. i mean i could put some money into the game and try to get him but i'd regret it later on

I can now delete my second account which is a relief because having to do the missions on two accounts was a real pain I'll miss Spring Lucina and Eldigan though.

I was able to pull 3 Hectors so far and I want help deciding what I should do with one of them. I already fed one of them to Zephiel, but can't decide what to do with the other one.

I was thinking of either keeping two Hectors for Armor Emblem (though I already have a 5* Sheena that can replace one of the Hectors if need be) or feed him to Titania for Distant Counter so she can be a super hard counter to Blue units (especially mages).

he's not very useful for skill inheritance fodder since his skills are fairly common, so your options are merging him, turning him into 2000 feathers, or just keep him around for the rare situation in which two ryomas would be useful

No, it's a personal weapon. You can't inherit any 5* locked weapon that doesn't have a + in its name.

Up to 10 Defense wins for me this week. I did some more SI with the scraps I've gotten and looks like it's working better.(Swapped Breath of Life for Savage Blow on Julia and gave her Rally Speed to aid Tharja when she doesn't need to attack, Olivia finally has Sword breaker 3 and Effie has Threaten Def to further ensure anything in her range is mildly inconvenienced.)


I'm theorizing that "your units die" mode to be a sort of Survival mode, if only because I seriously don't think they're willing to risk pissing off people with true permadeath.

Wow, that was fucking easy.

The left side is covered by 3 units since the green mage can also attack the same spot the lance and Xander cover, so I recommend doing the first strike from the right. Thatrja was my MVP for this one. One shot the Sword on the right. Green mage Sudokued to her. Next turn, Julia killed the lance, Tharja killed Xander and the Cleric was dead on the next turn.

GHB is easy with a team that is 10 levels above your enemy. That's why I've been telling you to do it on Lunatic.

Take out the units on the right first, as it's very risky to attack the left units without being attacked by 3 units (You're in range of the Lance, Xander, Green mage AND the Cleric. Even if you kill one, the other 3 will surely finish off your unit.) It looks like having strong ranged units definitely helps for this one.

Also it's only been 2 hours and I already have 4 successful defenses. I wasn't able to surpass last week's record of 46, but was able to get over 30 for this week.

This is the first time I've won a lunatic GHB on the very first try.

I used Ryoma, Nowi, Olivia and a healer. Sent Ryoma to the right, just outside of Xander's range but right inside the green mage's and the swordsman's range. Both died. Then Nowi blocked the chokepoint on the left and killed Xander and the lancer with the help of Olivia and the healer.

Darting Blow 3 is a bit harder to come by, you need a 4* Florina because good luck getting a 4* Rebecca and it's unlikely you'd burn a 4* Tharja unless you have a 5* one already. 3* Florina are a dime a dozen though, but then it's another 2k feathers wasted, again.

I have a question on numbers.
I gave Bunnilla a Blue Tomebreaker, and I have a choice between leaving her with Dragon Gaze (a leftover inheritance from some time back) or giving her Glowing Ember. One is 30% ATK up, the other is + flat damage of 50% DEF. Now on straight numbers, those two happen to be exactly the same - respectively 12 and 13. The difference is when I have a color advantage. Boosting ATK then throwing color advantage would make her a big Blue killer (especially mages, which is interesting as they're more likely to have higher RES), but the DEF-based boost is a lot more versatile (I gave Glowing Ember to my 4*-promoted Beruka along with Renewal and a Killer Axe, she turned out to be a pretty damn good resilient minitank after all).
Glowing Ember generally seems to be more effective, but Bunnilla, like regular Camilla, kind of struggles to find one thing she's really good at and is a bit above average on several things but gets worn down easily, so specializing her as a blue killer is a serious option. Which one would you guys suggest ?

Color advantage has no effect on dragon gaze/draconic aura/dragon fang. It deals extra damage based on the unit's atk stat, not on combat damage (you're thinking of night sky/glimmer/astra).

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on May 03, 2017, 05:54:13 am
The entire team is mage bait.

Tharja, Sanaki and Lilina are great against Hector and should still survive a hit from his counter attack despite their lackluster defense. They take advantage of his shit Res and the WTA.

For all his annoyance, Takumi can be taken down with a strong mage as well since his Res is also pretty bad. Otherwise, a tanky unit is your next choice.

Surprisingly also sports crap Res. The same 3 mages for Hector will do fine for Lucina as well. Otherwise, Reinhardt and M!Robin are my suggestions for a blue mage. Also, Vantage means nothing if the unit can't counterattack in the first place, so a ranged unit will ignore Vantage unless she also happens to have Distant Counter.

Nowi - Julia. Nowi probably has the best Res of this team, but it's average at best, so a green mage can do the job especially if Nowi is using Triangle Adept or your Green mage has an attack buff. Alternatively, any green unit with high res will do. Don't bother with a falchion user for Nowi, she usually has TA and/or Swordbreaker to deal with them. Julia just tells Nowi to fuck off.

Just a reminder that arena doesn't let you preview the whole enemy team to adapt yours, that you can't redo a lost battle, and that it's not so likely that you're bringing a specialized team (focusing on 3 strong mages) in arena.

Color advantage has no effect on dragon gaze/draconic aura/dragon fang. It deals extra damage based on the unit's atk stat, not on combat damage (you're thinking of night sky/glimmer/astra).
Checking again, are you sure about that ?
Glimmer / Astra : grants (1)50% to damage dealt
Ember : boost damage dealt by 50% of def
Gaze : grants 30% to atk
It sounds like the Dragon specials directly change the atk stats so there's an effect on weapon triangle, while Astra has the same wording as Ember, a flat addition to the damage based on the stat after the triangle.

With that being said, I was thinking, even with a flat damage, I probably still don't want to attack a red mage or an archer with Bunnilla, ever (unless maybe to finish off a crippled one). With or without the triangle advantage, Gaze is still fine.

I'm 100% sure. Go grab a low level Lon'qu and charge his night sky against a red enemy he'd normally wouldn't hurt. The damage will still be 0 (0*150%=0) even if (atk*130% > enemy def).

Also double SP ends after today so spam that training tower as much as possible.

Speaking of which, I noticed that the enemy's version (training tower, Story Missions, etc.) of Dargonic Aura seems to function differently from the normal version. It appears to increase their Atk stat by 30% during battle as opposed to giving off a flat damage value based on your Atk as a Camilla with nearly 40 Atk only did 5 damage to my Hector when Dragonic Aura proc'd. I don't know if this applies to the other stat based specials, but I would assume so.

So I started again, I just wasn't getting any 5*'s other than sword units and I really could've used a lance unit at the very least.

So I did another few re-rolls, got Takumi and Kagero at the same time, then a Hector on the next set of 20 orbs, another Takumi on the next 20 and Azura on the 20 after that.

Got a few free rolls left, so I'll see how many more I can possibly grab with those.

Sure you could give that close counter to Kagero or you could continue fusing Takumi's so you have a super Takumi who baits defense wins in arena it's what i did with my Minerva's and now 90% of my defense wins come from Red leads thinking they are gonna get an easy kill off her only to learn she can tank 1-2 hits from a red and kills on her counter attack.

Anyone know what the next bonus heroes for Arena are yet?

I did manage to take everyone down except Nowi, but I highly disagree. They all had their competitive builds with Vantage 3.  It was one of the worst encounters I've had thus far. How would you counter it?
my awakening/fates superwives team of kagero and tharja (both with speed and attack hone/rally) can take them all down

Kagero is bae... kinda wish I had Rally Speed and a 5 star Kagero/Julia at the time. My Jeorge also isn't suited for Arena without dance since I have nothing for him to inherit yet. I'm over here like...

Guess I'll be on Team Sanaki by myself. :C

Anyways I already completed my Arena runs for the week and ended up getting a no death flawless. All I have to say is that Reinhardt with a +Atk IV, Death Blow, and Hone Cavalry buff is disgusting as hell. All I had to do was bait the Ninos, Julias, and the occasional Sorens with Titania who has Distant Counter and Green Tomebreaker, and then had Reinhardt wipe out the rest.

Was also able to get a successful defense with my Armor Emblem team (Zephiel, Hector, Sheena, and Effie) and can confirm that your Defense score does in fact double when using a bonus hero. I was able to get 578 points which equates to 900 feathers which is the highest you can get.

There are Special Defense maps and Quests are out as well. You can get a total of 12 orbs if you complete them all.

*sigh*... I need Julia/Takumi in my life. At this point, even Olivia is doing more damage than Jeorge.

Speaking of Olivia, is Poison Strike 3/Fury 3/Hone ATK 3 a solid set for her? I don't have Ruby Sword+ yet, so I thought I could add Poison Strike as a substitute. Possibly permanent since it's been easier to take out Hector and hurt blue units as a last ditch effort when they become problematic. Overall, more useful than just preforming Dance. She is also a +SPD/-ATK.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on May 10, 2017, 07:12:06 am
Give her Swordbreaker 3 instead. Ruby Sword/Swordbreaker is to give Olivia some extra utility in dealing with Greens/Other swords.
Fury and Hone attack are fine. Ultimately, Olivia should primarily be dancing her teammates instead of focusing on combat and this is just to provide some extra assistance.

Why are you using a Red against Blue units?

Edit: Ursula GHB returning tomorrow(or 3AM eastern).
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on May 10, 2017, 08:00:47 am
Blue units are my teams biggest weakness right now, so I've been compensating to say the least. I don't have any solid green units yet, hence why I've been crying for Julia or Takumi. I'm trying to implement as much variety as possible, which Poison Strike has saved us a few times when worst came to worst.

Kagero has been great, but she's a 4 star (+DEF/-HP) and I don't have the skills she needs to inherit yet so I've been flip flopping between her and Jeorge. I'm pretty close to making Kagero a 5 star, but until then I got very few choices it seems.

Well well, Ursula's comeback allowed me to finally finish the job and complete her Lunatic battle. As it turns out, all I had to do was kill the Armored Axe , bait Ursula closer and then have Effie slaughter everyone because the ninjas and the sword can't even scratch her(And the Ursula bait was to get her closer to Effie who proceeds to one shot her)
Spoiler: For completion's sake (click to see content)


Oh, before I forget. You fight Ursula in Story 9-3 so you can have Anna kill her there for the orb.
Edit: Lunatic 9-3 has a Level 40 Ursula in case you can't deal with the GHB rule.

Yeah, the knights with ranged counter are a must to tank those ninjas and counter them. Gordin and Saizo should also manage with their high def (although their shit atk is probably bad news), and I guess the dragons but I don't raise these guys. Oh, M!Robin has advantage over colorless, right ? And then Ursula herself is manageable in two exchanges as long as she doesn't reach a red unit. Those skills these guys have though, such assholes - savage blow, escape route...
lol at the Anna mission, mine is still 2* lv19, fuck off.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on May 10, 2017, 09:26:18 pm
Armored units with Distant Counter help a lot, but not required. If anything you really just need a good red mage and a bulky green unit like Camilla.

Also killing off Ursula with Anna isn't as bad as you make it out to be. Mine is only a 2* Lv25 and she took care of Ursula no problem (Chapter 9-3 on Normal).

I never thought about that. Just assumed it meant the hero battle.

Btw, have any of you been banned yet for using emulators? Ive been hearing about people getting soft banned and that there was going to be a larger crackdown. Im playing on my phone and tablet, but if nintendo is really going after a large chunk of the players playing the game and not actually cheating, then they wont be getting any more of my money(also, they wont be getting any anyway cause that hero banner had me all the way up to a 20% chance of pulling a 5*(between the focus and normal rates) and all I got was Jacob. They suckered me into pulling one more time cause the rates were so high(and I kept doing it till I pulled))). Starting to think they may have shadow nerfed the summon rates the last day and no one noticed :p
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on May 11, 2017, 06:24:17 pm
I never thought about that. Just assumed it meant the hero battle
There are 2, one that specifically says use Ursula to beat GHB Ursula Lunatic, and another that says use Ursula to beat lv40 Ursula. The Lunatic 9-3 story map Ursula is lv40. They both give an orb. It could have been an extra 4* Ursula for more Death Blow to inherit, but hey.

As for the ban thing, I've grown accustomed to playing on both a phone and a tablet for games that allow multiple devices, it doesn't seem like it's any problem, as long as it's not an emulator it should be fine.
... The 5* rates really rose to 20% ? How do you know ? What I understood is that failing a full rotation at 3% would raise to next rate to 5/%, but I didn't see any claim that it would keep going up as long as you didn't get a 5*... I thought it would just stay at 5%. I didn't pull enough to test it myself (failed one rotation and then got a 5* and stopped).

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Lost_Avenger on May 11, 2017, 07:06:55 pm
I got to like 14% or so iirc on the focus and like 4 or 5% on the normal 5* rate for the hero banner. Not quite 20%, but really high though. Before that the highest I ever got was like 7% on an older banner. But now that I look back on all of the summons I did before the Ike and hero banner, I kind of regret all of them except the Spring banner(and my first summon, but I didnt reroll so even that one I guess lol). I guess I should have got a screenshot of my rates, but I was honestly expecting that my last pull was going to be like 3 Hectors and a Takumi, but it was like 2 Barsts, a Nino, a Wrys, and Jacob. Should have probably pulled out when I saw the 2 Barst and Wrys trolls, but I was feeling lucky.

i never fully upgraded my castle. it's at 80% bonus experience. i look at the 10 orbs and i'd rather not spend them to get 100%. i have every character i care about at level 40 and with plenty of sp, so it's not totally necessary imo
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on May 11, 2017, 11:21:38 pm
I stopped at 60%. Maxing the castle isn't just a waste of orbs, it hurts SP grinding on the long run.

Speaking of SP grinding, the defense maps are a boon. Part 5 has about a dozen lv35 enemies and it only costs 5 stamina. That's not only just a better stamina:sp ratio than the training tower, it's not random so you only have to develop one strategy and repeat it over and over.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on May 11, 2017, 11:27:42 pm
Yeah, I wouldn't. To be honest, I didn't notice that big of a jump in EXP maxing out my castle. It's felt more gimmicky if anything. 80% is the sweet spot.

Also, my boo has been promoted and I have no regrets.

What build are you currently using, Titiln? I hate how fragile she is, so I might drop Life and Death. She's already pretty strong (against Infantry Units) without it if you ask me. I saw a pretty interesting one the other day running Wings of Mercy with Breath of Life which I assume would make her a decent DPS/Healing Hybrid.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on May 12, 2017, 03:36:33 am
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
- death blow 3 to bring her attack to 46, to help deal with non infantry (and that can become 50 if rallied)
- daggerbreaker because i don't have enough feathers to bring up people to sacrifice (she'd get desperation or vantage). she doesn't need daggerbreaker at all. when it's kagero vs kagero it just boils down to who attacks first
- hone attack and rally speed to help tharja. tharja has the same to help kagero
- iceberg because i don't have anyone with moonbow right now, and iceberg's working out just fine right now anyway

kagero is fragile, but you're only on life and death 1 there and you gave her the hp seal so maybe she'll still be capable of dealing with one enemy attack without dying, and that increase in speed might mean not getting doubled in some cases. if you don't usually expose her to too much danger or are capable of getting her out of danger (dragging back, swap, dancing, whatever) she should be fine
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on May 12, 2017, 05:44:11 am
Okay, nice. I think I like the idea of Deathblow over Life and Death. At least not without a guaranteed follow up attack regardless of health. Life and Death 1 is a decent choice for now. However she hardly tanks the odd attack as it is, so I won't be investing into it anymore. I'll probably go with Threaten DEF or Breath of Life as well since Hone ATK/SPD are already covered.

Also people who make their lead the character of the army they are on are the worst it screws over your team more then it helps them, i don't know what team Julia is thinking putting Julia as their lead i only get a bonus if i use my Julia when i fight in the gauntlet not when she is just on my team and Sanaki is a Red mage with TA Julia is the last character the team needs shared as the lead.

Yes Celica is a red mage which means i don't have to pull for Tharja or Sanaki on this banner.

The comeback mechanic isn't triggered by a fixed number but by a %. It seems the score changes from same to stronger when the winner has a 10% lead. Julia was pretty close to hitting that treshold (over 9%) last night but never did so we cockblocked team Sanaki from a comeback.

Burn it with fire. TF is that?

Also when merging allies, do SI skills also get transferred? like say you had an Ike you sank a ton of time into but then you pull a 2nd Ike with better IV's. Do you get to keep what skills your old unit already inherited after merging them both or would you have to start over?

At least they didnt massively increase his boob size. I guess they went with a younger look?

I like how they listened to fan feedback on healers being garbage and fixed it with one skill on a 5* focus unit. So if you dump large chunks of money, you can make a healer hit slightly harder.

Also, the balance of this game has been wrecked by the golden week banner. Every arena match I'm in has a full distant counter team

When I pulled 3 Celicas I gave them around 2-3 skills each and then trained them from level 1. I basically merged one of them once they learned the skills I gave them to the next Celica I'm going to train and then rinse/repeat.

The thing is that sometimes I could avoid spending money on this game if it weren't for the "IV system". I was able to pull Celica and Mae with the free orbs I hoarded for the past week only to realize that the Celica I pulled was -Spd which made me want to pull another one. I know IS won't do away with this feature, but I hope they implement something in the future where you can reroll it.

Also if there's anyone in Team Robin, my Celica's got your back.

I was thinking of making a Camilla with Silver Axe+ to make her atk much higher (and also giving her speed back) but that's too expensive atm. You should check out stats on the wiki before making your decision.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on May 16, 2017, 12:10:46 pm
I tried giving Camilla a hammer back when I was mad at the training tower for throwing armored knights everywhere, but there isn't that much of an armor meta; I also tried inheriting an Emerald Axe with Lancebreaker but I'm out of SP. She has decent stats everywhere else so that could be decent, tanky and fast.
It's a toss up between that and Klein ATM I guess. But 5* Emerald Axe with no + would be a shame :-\

Post by: Magical Amber on May 16, 2017, 07:14:51 pm
Go with Klein. He's a really good Brave Bow user that requires minimal investment in terms of skill inheritance. He's even better if you have a +Atk IV for him.

yeah, Klein seems like a safe bet. I just wish I had some Axe as good as the 5* Swords and Spears I'm drowning in, but Camilla won't be it with that kit. Brave Axe+ with Darting Blow isn't that interesting when she already has decent SPD, such a waste, and you'd need to sacrifice another 5* to get her a strong weapon.

When is it better to use draconic aura vs bonfire? I gave my Xander draconic aura, vantage, and hone cavalry. Im thinking I might go with fury for his a skill. Im tempted to just build my horse emblem team since I get tired of being wrecked by certain units in arena(reinhardt is a dick). So Im leaning Reinhardt, Olwen, Xander, and Spring Xander with Olwen having a blade tome. With my luck, they will nerf the blade tomes right after I build my team or everyone will start running that story character when she comes out.

Also considering armor emblem since it doesnt require as much from me in feathers. Draug seems like he is a bit underrated and I can run multiple Hectors if need be

I'm running Xander (quick riposte and bonefire) with Priscilla (rehabilitate and hone cavalry) supporting him and Hector (vantage and bonefire) in the arena and they're crushing everything effortlessly.

Giving Camilla Silver Axe+ will help her one shot a small handful of units that she couldn't before, but overall you'll effectively be losing the ability to one round the rest of characters she used to be able to before with Brave Axe+. What's worse is that you'll be leaving her open to more counter attacks than before.

Long story short, changing her weapon will have her take more damage than she's actually dealing.

I can actually dust off my 5* Felicia since that Fortify Res seal is awesome. Now my Ephraim and Eirika can provide 4 buffs at once which is a godsend for my Blade Tome team.

I'm running Xander (quick riposte and bonefire) with Priscilla (rehabilitate and hone cavalry) supporting him and Hector (vantage and bonefire) in the arena and they're crushing everything effortlessly.

I can actually attest to this. I was having trouble getting a no death run on my Blade Tome team due to shenanigans (fuck you twin bridge map), so I decided to become the scum of the earth and used a Horse Emblem team with Xander, Reinhardt, Titania, and Elise. I literally just buffed Xander, stuck him in the middle of the map and watch him throw out Ignis at everyone's faces because of Quick Riposte while keeping Elise tethered to him for healing and defensive buffs. Unless of course there's a blue tome user out there where I instead made Titania stand out there and wreck everything with Distant Counter/Green Tome Breaker.

tl;dr: Horse Emblem is busted yo and got my deathless run with minimal effort...

I mean this is disgustingly good

To be honest, Spd isn't a make or break stat for Eldigan to begin with. If anything if you plan to make a Horse Emblem team and don't have the resources to make a viable Xander, then Eldigan is a fine alternative as their stat spread are nearly identical.

Took a chance with sacrificing a Hinata I had and passing Fury to Xander. Only got it to Fury 2 but it was enough to do the job. I combined it with Kohaku's strategy of having Elise pocket Xander and having him do the majority of the work and combined that with Olivia's dancing and Julia taking care of the troublesome blues.

Uhm...I already have Cecilia...in fact, she was one of the first mages I got...
Plus, even if the Rite of Shadows banner is still up, there's also the Triangle Banner getting in my way, and knowing my game account and its gigantic boner for Hinata (no seriously, getting 10 Hinatas is simply not normal), it would rather give me a 5* Hinata instead of a 5* Celica. >_<

That makes no sense. Either you're getting a 5* and it's more likely to be from the banner (though not a sure bet), or you're not. Hinata being a rate up in a different banner has no impact on the Rites banner, don't make dumb excuses like that.
And for the multiple Hinatas, that's just how it is. I've gotten literal dozens of 2 or 3* Hannas, Wrys, Stahls and others. There are just some low rank units that keep coming back.
But you are not getting a 5* Hinata in the Rites banner.

I guess they wanted one of each representation of the colors. It's not that hard to imagine, plus I say it's about time that Cecilia became a focus of a banner, especially those who just want her for her Raven tome.

Also Brash Assault seems like a waste for Titania. Her speed is above average for a Calvary unit that she'll be ending up doubling a good portion of the characters already, even more so if you have a +Spd boon on her which bumps her Spd to a very respectable 37.

save your orbs. The bride banner is coming at some point in the next couple of months. Wouldnt be surprised to see them make a mage out of someone that shouldnt be a mage

The wedding banner will most likely be on May 30 right after the Celica banner as I remember reading that the dataminers were able to extract info that the wedding banner image was in the game files, but it was encrypted so we won't know who it'd be.

Brash Assault triggering at low HP should speed up Sol which heals, it seems fitting. I'm not completely sure how some skills work though, I haven't had it trigger yet even at low HP but that's because I just kill people first anyway. And she's not +SPD so she doesn't double much on her own. Also I don't have too many actually useful skills to inherit so I take the leftovers. (seriously I think the Gamepedia wiki that calls everyone a nuke and advises fury, life and death, vantage, a breaker, and Moonbow for everyone is so fucking dumb with no sense of synergy)

The metagame is like 75% orko on initiation and 25% baiting units into Hector's/Xander's/Ike's to kill them, so those are the optimal builds.

Lyn, because her weapon has in-built desperation. And even then she doesn't need it because she's pretty fast already. Seliph can use it with armored blow or defiant defense but it's a shitty gimmick.

Brash assault is a pretty terrible b skill, only marginally better than pass and obstruct.

I know that's what people do, but... it's a bad thing. Sure there are a bunch of skills that give pitiful bonuses, but there's a bunch of varied tools - unfortunately they're too rare. Leo's 5* tome seals the target's movements (it's hilarious to pummel a close range unit from over a wall with that), the Seal X skills are pretty effective when you can have a couple units tag team a single target, but then the Hone / Spur / Fortify X skills are pathetic and barely decent at 5*. Personally I love to make a better rounded unit and try to have a team composition where everyone can play off each other and cover a large ground. A few people here talk about their horse emblem, flier emblem teams which I assume is an all horse / flier team with the goad cavalry skills or whatever they're called, but it seems like it's mostly like a waifu thing and not all that successful.
The big problem with that is that this sort of things is exactly what the ninjas are supposed to do, crush down the enemy stats (many have it directly included in their weapon) so that others can kill everyone, but they're all wet paper and their support is largely ineffective. The only popular ninja seems to be 5* Kagero because she hits well ?

tl;dr I'm not interested in the current meta brought by current limitations and poor dev insight, and I'm just hoping that they can rebalance all that some day. It puts me in difficulty in the arena when facing collections of OP units but that actually pushes me to build a team that can survive more than one hit each. And lately I've been doing a little better at that - unless the "bonus character" list fucks me (4* Xander is nearly useless compared to 5* Xander).

No.

Horse/flier emblem teams are amazing because mages like Cecilia or Spring Camilla can reach like 75 atk (and have more than enough speed to double most of the cast) once they have both hone and fortify on and a -blade tome. Horse emblem is particularly easy to run on budget.

Oh, I thought I didn't see it much in arena because it wasn't that good, but that's my point then, why isn't that kind of setup more popular than braindead HECTOR AZURA. Why isn't there a super heavy hitter like Ryoma with an AOE that just does "atk - target def" on everyone instead of trying to make everyone hit 1 target for 70.

Because the AI is braindead and horse emblem requires careful positioning to work. That's why independent, offense-oriented (and dancers) units are so good on defense. Horse emblem also has lower bst than a infantry/flier team, so probably wouldn't run into one unless you were using it yourself.

Because AOE specials are garbage. They suffer from long charge, poor distribution, mostly awkward patterns and they deal non-lethal damage.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on May 24, 2017, 01:58:51 pm
The light cross pattern is weird but the thunder line, fire cross, or wind circle are often fairly likely to catch one, maybe two more targets depending on the map (try the thunder line on the bridge map). And if you hit someone with low def/res, the calculated damage is the same for everyone, which makes it possible for your next unit to finish off someone who would be otherwise dangerous. And it can't be countered, either, so it's a good way to crush a Hector (even with Reinhardt).
But yeah, generally speaking, I tend to go for battles longer than 4-6 duels. If I can double some targets, I can land a special without too much trouble. So yeah, I build my arena teams not to OHKO everyone, but to survive and wear them down. I only need 1 unit to win. I'm also considering the fact that the asshole AI usually waits for me to bait it, so it's necessary to make sure the bait survives.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on May 24, 2017, 03:00:18 pm
That sounds fantastic except that the long charge is still a big weakness. You can trigger the short charge skills 2 times by the time you trigger that AOE special. And even then it's not something you can reliably lean on since you won't see it trigger unless your unit is doubling/getting doubled and by then you get more benefit out of the shorter charge skill anyway. There's also the fact that chipping the enemy like that can backfire on you if they're running Vantage in which case you really are better off at least ORKOing them.


Speaking of which, now that my Julia has Fury over LoD, should I switch her back to Vantage or should I stick to G-Tome breaker?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: 2RudeX on May 24, 2017, 06:43:49 pm
If you're looking to cover more ground, I'd go with Vantage. Not to mention it's a decent counter balance to Fury. Besides Nino and another Julia, there aren't many green mages that threaten her as much anyway. But then again, this depends on your team comp.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: _N_ on May 24, 2017, 09:55:43 pm
Green Tomebreaker for Arena. Vantage is not a terrible pick, but playing it safe with G.T. is still the far better option imo. I'd save Vantage for your Disant and Close Counter users, who can make the most of it.

It can't be countered directly, but it does non-lethal damage. If you tried that against a Hector with vantage (one of his most common b skills as he doesn't need QR) he'd kill your Reinhardt.

Reinhardt would bring him down to low HP and then another red unit follows up and doesn't actually need to one-shot Hector, just survive the Vantage. Which a proper red unit should easily do. It doesn't make a red mage with high def mandatory, and the top units for that are Sophia and Henry around 35 with +def and they're otherwise not very interesting.
That's the point, you shouldn't need one unit who can one-shot anyone, you spread the damage.

Also, you're supposed to plan out that strategy, don't just have Reinhardt ride up to Hector out in the open and blast him. Use other units with a similar special, you still have color advantage and terrain to take into account. Try setting Reinhardt against a wall and blast the whole corridor on the other side, or, again, the twin bridges map. People should build up their teams to account for the random factor of the maps, sometimes you're stuck on a bridge with an armored unit or you have an infantry running around a pillar with a mage sniping you from the other side.
I'm not saying it works (it doesn't because everyone goes for Vantage Hector and forgets the rest), I'm saying it's bad gameplay that the meta of this game is just going for open terrain face to face one round kill. Recently they're putting out more and more varied maps that make those situations harder (the boat in Rite of Shadow maps, the Kozuki challenge maps, the defensive maps), they make it more obvious that you're supposed to plan out a strategy. Isn't Fire Emblem known for strategy battles in the first place ? Or just the "marrying your waifu" thing ?

Also, the AI is pretty good with support skills. It's always bunching up its units when someone has a hone attack or defense or rally anything. It's only dumb with healers because it always attacks if someone is in range, so the healers on horse end up on the frontline, but on support, it makes the most of everything.

But it ignores weapon triangle, is that it ? I don't actually check the numbers but it's still a lot higher than a normal hit (even accounting for the 1.5 multiplier)
It does, and the damage is huge because the multiplier kicks in before enemy defense.

I'd never send Reinhardt anywhere near Hector. The real strategy at that point is luring Hector away with Reinhardt's superior movement and/or killing the rest of his team so you can bait him with a strong red unit, without losing a single unit. That's the hard part of any Fire Emblem - winning without casualties.

But... You can do exactly that without needing the one red unit that can one-shot him. You can lure him away and wipe out its supports and then gang up on him, using Reinhardt as the opener before the red guy finishes him off, without needing that red unit to have the firepower to one-shot him through his high defense. Hell, if you do it right you can even do it with a green unit.
You've never seen to units with reciprocal aid jerk off each other, or pivot/reposition loops? The AI is dumb as shit.
Yes, I have. That's proof that it uses everything it has every time it can. It doesn't work with reposition because they end up never advancing, but it's still very effective with the stat boost skills. We've seen AI team stacked with stat boost support skills, that's exactly what the GHB maps have, and it ends up with units that have 60+ attack and defense, that's why those maps are hard. That's how they will definitely one-shot you and you have a hard time taking them out. The GHB maps like Michalis, Zephiel were filled with that. It's only when people started having those few OP units like Hector that people could beat them with much more ease - because they're broken. Before that with more generic units like Donnel, you needed very careful planning and countless retries to have a step-by-step guide. That's what was good. Now, just almost solo Robin GHB with Ike.

(checking the stats on the Michalis GHB again, it had hone fliers, fortify fliers, and bowbreakers everywhere, now that was some synergy)

---

lol someone (maybe the same guy as the other times, I don't remember) did quadruple Sakura vs GHB for Lloyd, Michalis, and Robin.

There's some hearsay on reddit about Lyn's staff disabling the enemy for a turn.

Edit: English trailer


Oh, her staff prevents the enemy from counter attacking after combat....and her b skill prevents them from counter attacking during combat? not bad I guess. That could be useful to kill Hector and other units with in-built DC and QR.

Me too but I'm not really concerned. Dropping a rank (a measly 100 feathers) is a non-issue unless you're at the very top. The new arena doesn't really promote working too hard.

Besides one of the starter trio, the new banner's heroes and the last GHB there's always two of the daily units on any season, so if you leveled those up you should be fine. We'll run out of them next month, though, so IS might add some new ones.

All of the Wedding characters have really good stats, holy crap. Caeda has the potential to be another Blade Tome user with her high Spd. Cordelia has the stats to pull off a Quad bow build like Setsuna with slightly lower speed, but much higher attack. Charlotte has super high attack with decent speed. And Lyn has similar stats to Maria with the same high Spd, but with lower Res and higher defense though Lyn obviously has the better kit.

I also have a crap ton of Waifu Lyns lying around cause the game thought it was funny that I should pull 5 of them before landing Cordelia. Now I don't know whether I should merge them all or have some of my other healers inherit her Candle Staff.

He hits very hard thanks to basically Brave tome double hit and high base power (give him death blow and he can kill almost anyone), but he gets killed very easily by anyone in one or two hits, mage or physial, with or without getting double-hit from SPD. Even red tome users can give him a hard time. He's probably at least in the top 2 blue tome (I don't know much about Linde), top 5 any tome.

Took me one try, but still gave me some trouble cause of that stupid healer and the AI was somewhat unpredictable with taking the time to buff allies with Rallies instead of taking my bait.

Also in terms of skills, none of them have anything noteworthy except one of the Green Axe Cavaliers having a Ward Cavalry Buff and having pass, so take that into account before rushing into an attack or baiting for one lest you get surprised.

Yeah, I thought that was weird seeing the awkward danger spots. I didn't realize it was Pass.

But yeah, I finished it on my 3rd try. I used my main team in Ryoma, Nowi, Kagero, and Olivia. Nowi didn't last as bait on this one which was surprising. But shockingly Ryoma worked and still ate up more than half the team. This map wasn't too hard but it wasn't easy either. They did some serious damage.

Free 3* version, this time including ghb and previous missions (Narcian, Palla, Lloyd)

Basically what I did but with Ike and Caeda. Baiting the healer from over the creek for Camus to sacrifice himself so easily is quite satisfying.
But man, that enemy team setup is pretty hardcore on paper. The fucking healer kept killing my physical tanks in my first few tries, and the color setup is cruel, a land unit gets ganged up with 2 hard hitting colors and the healer, that bait turn alone is hard to survive. Even 5* Klein quickly proved to be worthless here from the back, dealing shit damage.

So uh, despite having low Res, My Julia with ATK Boon, Fury 3 and buffed with a Hone Atk 3 still can't one shot Camus despite WTA. And built in Distant counter kills Julia for trying.


Wow ok...I don't have an answer for this one.

Bonus: Olwen is in the Camus banner due to her Dire Thunder. I don't think that works because I tried doing that with Reindhart and he can't finish the job either.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 02, 2017, 11:50:23 am
I think 4* Narcian one-shots Camus without even needing a dancer. Titania doesn't though, even with all the emerald axe.

Edit to your Olwen edit :
I guess Dire Thunder is advised by the banner because of that pesky healer for a ranged fight to save your tank. But I don't see a setup relying just on that.

Yeah, you need to bait the healer away with a flier, otherwise you get ganged by two physical hitters and the healer from behind. Taking them one on one each turn is the only way.

I sent Hector with a few buffs up front and he killed the troubadour, one of the axes and wounded Camus badly. Killed Camus, did some swap & reposition shenanigans so Ryoma would move up front and kill the red mage and the remaining axe kamikaze'd on him on the next phase.

Post by: R565 on June 02, 2017, 04:08:03 pm
I gotta say guys, Camus is probably the best physical blue fighter in the game, you probably might want to swap out his A skill with something else (other than -wolf tomes not many can fight calvary units with a bonus) and make sure to keep him with other good horse units. The only thing stopping him outright is in my mind is his bad RES stat, but even then I would keep him just enough distance to fight mages rarely. He just might be the best Grand Hero we got so far...

Distant Counter is more of a way to like you said, bait mages and help her charge Glacies which makes up for her low attack with a boosted 29 to damage.

I don't use her outside of Armor Emblem however.

Tempest Trials info
-Comes out on the 8th at 3AM eastern until the 22nd at 2:59 AM
-It's the "perma death" mode. You only lose them for this mode and only until all your teams are defeated or you beat the final map.
-It's practically a Survival mode. Can use multiple teams, lose one and you switch to the next one.
-HP and cooldowns carry over between maps, so uh....not use Fury? and bring a healer?
-10 orbs and 5,000 feathers will be given to everyone if cumulative score reaches 1 billion in the first 5 days.

Whelp, I think I'm done blowing crests for Arena this week. Even with my merged characters, I don't think I have enough points to stay in the top 35% of my tier to get promoted to tier 20 for the rest of the season...

Also dancers are dumb. They keep throwing me off no matter how much I prepare for them. Guess I'll just prepare for Tempest Trials.

I went and burned the extra crests I got from this month's quests to maintain momentum and ended with 4800. I missed out on going up a tier by a few ranks last week, so I'm hoping this is good enough to go to Tier 18.

Yeah, you'll immediately bounce back to it from tier 18. And 100 feathers aren't worth the headache of burning crests, hand-picking enemy teams and starting all over if you lose a hero. Breaking into tier 19 (let alone 20) is still going to be pretty hard for a couple of months.

Am I the only one who's more hyped about feathers and the new quickened pulse seal than a 5* Lucina Marth?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 06, 2017, 11:25:45 pm
I've gotten stuck around 15 or 16 for like 3 weeks I think. I usually get a good enough rank to climb one rank (it's hard enough), but right on the last day I get pushed out and stay in the same tier. Third time in a row.
People in the arena are assholes.
That being said, I like the current ranking system a lot more. If someone is around your rank, it's a much safer bet that you can take them on, it's not going to be a whale's shiny new account that already has 2 Hectors and 2 Takumis with Vantage and +SPD at tier 4 (I used to face a lot of these assholes before - and I still keep running into the same Ekura guy like twice a day).
Oh well, ever since I stopped frantically promoting 3*s to 4* just to inherit better skills unto someone else, arena has been giving me plenty of feathers, 5k per week (or 4k ? I forgot) is okay (plus 500 every now and then from using a given unit a lot, and a bit more when I send a new batch of 3*s home). I was able to 5* Xander barely a week after I pondered over Klein or Camilla, and I'm approaching enough for Camus again. Camilla's still waiting.

I've been thinking about using my spare Hinoka to give Charlotte Beave Lance with Death Blow. Only problem is that I can't decide whether to feed Hinoka to someone else for Hone Fliers or give her to Charlotte and that my only spare Death Blow is on my 4* +Atk/-Def Kagero.

Wanna help me decide?

i'm at tier 17 and i don't give a shit if i never go above it

Yeah, I'm starting to accept that mentality. An extra orb and 1k feathers isn't worth the headache especially next week if I happen to get to tier 20 since I'll only be able to hold on to that rank for one week before being demoted after getting my shit pushed in by all of the +10 characters  associated with that rank.

Am I the only one who's more hyped about feathers and the new quickened pulse seal than a 5* Lucina Marth?

I'm honestly more excited with the feather making opportunities. So close to 20k so I can promote Camus or another worthwhile unit in my roster.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 06, 2017, 11:29:51 pm
1k feathers
Just 100 for the difference from one tier to the next. 1k would be a lot to sweat about. But yeah, it's fine to not get a rank up now.

Post by: Magical Amber on June 06, 2017, 11:44:50 pm
The difference in feathers from tier 19 to 20 is 1k feathers. You get 3k for getting promoted to tier 20, but still get 4 orbs.

Hah, I'm nearly done with the "clear stratum 10 with flier team" mission. Without anyone to level, I need to spend my stamina on something - and I find that it's been pretty nice in forcing me to balance my teams. Fliers aren't very balanced in the first place, many have more SPD and RES except the axe users, the only flying non-physical attacker is Bunnilla IINM... Getting a balanced skill set over a whole team like that is a bit of fine tuning.
Horse mission will be easier with several distant counter-capable units, and there are more options geared toward rescue with a better stats balance, as well as strong mages.

So I've been running Tempest Trials a few times and I believe 705 is the maximum score you can get for a single run on Lunatic (7 Battle). You can lose a unit during a run and you'll still be awarded the full 1.2x bonus for Survival, as long as you can complete the entire run with the same team you started with.

(http://i.imgur.com/wQPSBzk.png)

Regardless...this will take a while getting all the rewards, unless you have a ton of stamina potions to burn.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 08, 2017, 11:10:38 am
You have 14 days and if you keep getting that sort of score, you need to cycle through it under 50 times for 5* Mask or 150 for the full list. Doing it like 10 to 12 times a day should do it. So you need to burn through a bit over 2 stamina bars a day, which is approximately a day's worth of natural refill, assuming you don't let it overflow (don't let it sit at 99 for an hour). You'll only need a few potions here and there at most - if you can stick to that score.
But that's a high score. I'm not even bothering testing the top stratum myself right now (although I'm doing well on the one two steps below so far). I'll be happy to get the free 5*.

This. I burned a stupid amount of crests just to make Tier 18 next week. Mostly my fault since I could have waited for the reset, but got too eager.

Regarding Tempest Trials, this mode is amazing. Besides Arena, the game is actually fun to play again since I don't have many units to train and keep pulling the same bullshit. Real shame this mode is a limited event...

It's all fun and games until the RNG pits you against BS units.

The only unit that really tore me a new one was a 60+HP Takumi who had Vantage. His speed was high enough that none of my Blade Mages could activate Desperation to quickly finish him off and any damage I dealt to him from my units pulled him into Vantage range. I had to bust out Horse Emblem to take him out...

I'm actually more relieved to find a 72HP Hector than that monstrosity.

I can relate to this and hopefully IS does introduce an IV re-rolling mechanic at some point, but my only gripe about it is that if such a system were to be introduced, everyone and their grandmother would be using units with their optimal IVs which kind of kills the variety and uniqueness of every character.

Don't get me wrong, I hate it when I pull a character I really want only for it be shafted because of stupid crap like this (my Linde with +Atk/-Spd for example). It's literally an RNG within an RNG. I'm starting to think this is some ridiculous in-joke by IS referencing past Fire Emblems' use of utilizing 2 numbers with when calculating RNG...

How's everyone liking the event so far? I personally like it as it's a great way to grind SP and Hero Merit. When I first started using Tharja she was basically bare bones with no Hero Merit and only really had Darting Blow 3, but after a few days of Tempest she's now fully decked out through skill inheritance. She is even on the verge of maxing out on Hero Merit which happens to be the case for my other characters whom I'm running Tharja with.

I'm already at 45k points with only using 2 stamina potions so far, so I'm halfway there. Once I get all the rewards out of the way I'll probably continue running Tempest with other characters so I can take full advantage of the SP and Merit gains.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 11, 2017, 11:42:18 pm
I noticed the quickly rising Hero Merit too, but I didn't check out the SP because I use teams already full on inherited skills.
I barely get about 2k points a day (I only got The Mask yesterday), I just run the last Hard level because the lunatic ones really annoy me, it's just too long and way too unstable. On Hard, I have a chance of finishing it with my starting team once in a while.
edit - holy fuck Tharja has 1064 SP. Thanks for the tip, I'll try this way of farming.

You build HM like crazy with the Tempest trials but I find the inflated enemies to be a bit too much at times. I lost a run because my Ninian couldn't kill Veronica when she had 2 hp left. She could only do 1 damage, then she recovered 10 then game over.

The HM gains are so crazy I maxed out 4 characters in the past days (tbf they were over 1,000 to begin with). I had a barebones Linde I hadn't touched in a while (bad ivs) and I got enough sp in a single day to inherit the whole breath of life line of skills. Thanks to the new seal she's healing 15 hp each time she attacks.

I'm about to get 5* Lucina but I don't have any use for her. The real price is that sweet quickened pulse seal.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 12, 2017, 04:12:42 am
I'm fortunate to have multiple teams to fall on, but having a Blade Tome Mage with Desperation and high speed will make quick work of the Trials. It almost seems as it was tailor made for this kind of team due to the bloated stats of all the enemies on Lunatic.

Then again I don't run a healer outside Horse Emblem with Elise so I make it a priority to get any of my Blade Mages into Desperation range to reduce any sort of damage. When it comes to enemies with high Res that would survive an attack from my Mages, I would just have Bride Cordelia deal with them.

I know it might be different when she's finally out, but if her stats are similar to that of her Lunatic counterpart in the Paralogue, she might have a similar stat spread to Bride Cordelia (34 Atk/38 Spd).

Stats for Clarisse and Legion provided by a user on Reddit. Skills shown here are not their default ones as Clarisse has Glimmer/Night Sky, Poison Strike, and Threaten Def while Legion has Retribution/Reprisal, Fury, and Obstruct.

For Clarisse's actual stats, subtract 4 on all of her stats. Overall Clarisse has a similar stat spread to fellow Archers Takumi, Klein, and Jeorge with mostly having slightly higher Spd with lower Atk. Legion on the other hand is looking really good with high base Spd and Atk.

I hope Clarisse comes first. After countless healers, Gordins and a memorable -spd Jakob I've become allergic to pulling white orbs.

Speaking of pulling, I got skinny Draug after hitting 3.75% pity rate. I was going to sacrifice him, but checking his stats he has an ideal IV spread (+atk/-res). With his skill, hone cavalry and (a single) goad cavalry he can reach 60x2 (!)

Inverted Harsh Command, turns all + into - on the target after combat. Until the next round only, so either gang up on the target or center your skills on the defense phase.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 15, 2017, 10:35:05 am
Legion's Axe basically inflicts Panic after combat. It sounds good on paper especially against specialized teams that rely on buffs like Horse Emblem, but in the current meta you want them dead in one go so it's niche at best and it only applies to the target instead of an AoE Panic debuff like Veronica's weapon. However the Axe is inheritable should you feel the need that another Axe user would fare better with it.

Clarisse's weapon is also inheritable and is basically a ranged version of Female Corrin's Dark Breath (AoE debuff which lowers Atk and Spd by 5 of everyone within 2 spaces of the target) which is incredibly useful and much more effective in debuffing enemies than Legion's weapon and isn't as situational.

Post by: Darkflare on June 15, 2017, 10:44:53 am
I hope Legion's lousy Res carries over to the GHB so I can just kill the right one with Julia and have that Blue mage kamekaze afterwards although I may have to bring Olivia to dance to ensure that kill. I could try bringing Tharja and Rein for the left side. Then I just have to hope I can safely take out that bow.

Then again, things never go as plan, do they?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 15, 2017, 11:56:20 am
You will definitely need 2 shots to take out the Legion on the right with Julia. If you're using Olivia to give Julia a second shot, keep in mind you will also be leaving her in a vulnerable position for the Blue Mage Cavalier to still snipe her as she's within range. Be sure to use positioning skills with your remaining team to get her out of there.

You mean the red mage, I'm sure the defense tile will make her survive.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 15, 2017, 08:01:18 pm
Look again at the right side of the map.
it would require someone with reposition, who can tank a blue mage. And if you need both a dancer/singer for a double hit then the reposition, that dancer would have to be on the bottom left defense tile, thereby exposing herself to the red mage on the left.
The Legion on the left with the red mage should be fine with the first Tharja or Leo that comes along, surely. That's a 21 res stat, right ?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on June 15, 2017, 08:18:40 pm
Going by the starting position
12
34

I'll just have Olivia in the 1 position and Julia in the 2 position and move them up 2 spaces. Unless there's something that can increase mage range to 3, the only thing hitting Olivia immediately after is the red mage.

Unless I'm getting your wording wrong in which case

Why would be worried that Julia is in range of a blue mage?

Legion Battle is out, and surprisingly no Banner to go along with it.

However unlike previous GHB's, there 3 different difficulties now. Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal. You can potentially get 2 4* Legions, a 3* one, and 2k feathers if all are completed.

Any suggestions? I don't have any powerful red mages or Julia and I'm kinda out of ideas now, and I'm merely trying the Hard Mode version...

Reinforcements will only come once you've killed a pair. Try to remember what the next Legion will come with and prepare accordingly once you've killed their previous friends.



I'll be damned if MkV finds a way to beat Infernal with 3 star units. Enemy stats are crazy boosted in Infernal.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 16, 2017, 11:41:45 am
Was able to clear all the difficulties, but Infernal really lives up to its name at least for me. I actually had to teach Sanaki Axe Breaker so she can one shot all of the Legions reliably.

Basically used Nino to take care of any Blue Mages, Blue Cavalier, and Bowman while Reinhardt took out the Red Mages and the Red Cavalier. Olivia was there to dance and tank a hit from a Legion if necessary due to Ruby Sword+ (thank goodness I didn't have to). I literally had to hug the bottom right corner of the map to effectively funnel the last remaining reinforcements.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 16, 2017, 12:18:37 pm
I thought Ninian and Azura were too much of a liability with all those Legions, so I took Olivia instead.

Also there seems to be a bug in the Grand Hero Battle where there's invisible Defensive Tiles in places where there shouldn't be located at the top of the map pictured below. Keep that in mind when playing the map so you won't make any unnecessary attacks on enemies who're standing on those tiles.

IS has no plans to fix it right now, but will be sending some free orbs our way as an apology at a later date.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on June 16, 2017, 07:57:40 pm
i don't remember how i moved them exactly, it took a lot of tries and it was really late. i only remember for the first move i barely did anything, only exposed nino to the blue mage and nobody else. i might try to do it again for illustrative purposes but fuck that map

azura had spd+3/wings of mercy 2/fortify res 3/iceberg
tharja had darting blow 3/axebreaker 2/hone speed 3/rally attack/luna
nino had res+3/desperation 3/hone attack 3/drag back/luna
sakura had pain/rehabilitate/imbue/fortify def 3/imbue

it involved keeping the blade mages close when possible (azura and sakura as well for their stat boosts) so they'd support eachother

Post by: Byakko on June 16, 2017, 08:12:20 pm
Darting Blow and Speed+ are so useless when Legion has 42 SPD and the red mage has 38. There's so much inheritance required to make it work.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on June 16, 2017, 08:32:15 pm
yeah, she used axebreaker to reliably double them. darting blow made zero difference here but it's what i use in tempest trials and arena and i had nothing else to give her at that point (death blow would've been better). a lot of the default skills on my list can be replaced by something better, but they sufficed for me
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on June 16, 2017, 10:33:55 pm
Looks like I would need a few more skills to pull it off. Might be plausible if I give Julia the Axebreaker skill, but I don't think I have a WoM to pass to Olivia. Thanks anyway.

the builds i had there weren't specific to this map, they just happened to work. the only difference is that i gave axebreaker to tharja. i don't think i even used wings of mercy ever during my run because all units were usually close to eachother. if axebreaker julia can constantly get rid of legions and deal with the blue units as well then you might be able to pull it off

Yup. That's not even a slight exaggeration.

You can possibly squeeze by without Axe Breaker, but you 100% need ranged units on this one. I've managed to beat Lunatic after a few tries. Infernal however, without a dancer (Wings is a plus) and solid red/green mages, there's little to no chance. It's a fuckin' nightmare.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]

Darting Blow and Speed+ are so useless when Legion has 42 SPD and the red mage has 38. There's so much inheritance required to make it work.

If you have a Rally or Hone Speed buff, you can still double with Darting Blow 3 as long as your minimum speed is 37 which a lot of the Blade Tome Mages are capable of doing. Granted some of them need a +Spd IV, but those with a base Spd of 36 like Nino, Linde, Bunnycina, etc. just need to use a Speed seal.

That being said, I think trying to get into formation to buff the Blade Mages takes a lot more time than just one shotting a Legion with a high Atk Red (recommended) or Green Mage with Axe Breaker. Which is crucial since you don't want the reinforcements to swarm you.

My strategy was to wipe out the enemies on the right, then kill the reinforcements on the center while setting a buffed Camus where he could take on the archer and red mage. The next wave of reinforcements are in disarray since they spawn on top of the map and legion can't keep up with cavalry units.

BODIED! (4+ stamina potions later...)

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

I can't I recall much of what I did for the last couple of turns, but for most of it I kept everyone close at the bottom and had to bait them in for a solid 4-5 turns.
The toughest part about that was getting the last Blur Cav within range before he takes center and covers the entire map. Also to mention planning around the archer/invisible tile as well; otherwise, holding the center is definitely doable and likely would've been the simplest way to beat this map. Wings of Mercy Olivia was a god send. Landing the last hit was orgasmic.

Kinda late, but for those who don't know the game added weekly Arena quests for the next 3 weeks which have a Normal, Hard, and Lunatic version which rewards Orbs, Crests, and Stam potions.

Cecilia with a Gronnblade Tome is only viable if you plan on running a Horse Emblem team with Cavalry buffs, otherwise don't bother as Cecilia is better off with her default Tome anywhere else.

Despite that, I would just focus on prepping your Nino as she's a great investment in the long run, especially with events like Tempest where nuking in one shot is the way to go.

I'd prefer Ruby+ for her myself, but I honestly wouldn't gun for it. More to you if you get it, but Silver Sword+/Triangle Adept 3 isn't a bad alternative and it's far more cost effective. The damage output compared to Ruby+/Fury 3 for example is basically the same and you won't suffer the recoil.

The main advantage of giving her Ruby Sword+ is to free up her A-Slot, thus making her more flexible and more open to other options

Also the reason why most people slap Fury 3 on Olivia and Azura is literally the increase in all stats (obvious I know) while still keeping the Triangle Adept provided by Ruby Sword/Sapphire Lance. Most of the time you won't have your dancer engaging in battle so the recoil isn't much of an issue compared to more offensive units, but if you're caught in one the stat boost could prove vital to survive an otherwise fatal hit or prevent being doubled.

So yeah, there's nothing wrong with just opting for Silver Sword+ and Triangle Adept on your Olivia, but investing in a Ruby Sword+ for her will be more worthwhile in the long run.

The banner seems to be busted as I got a 4 star Maria and Lachesis from it. I managed to get a 5 star Sakura but I'm worried about the Fury Banner now. I want to give Olivia a Ruby Sword+ without levelling any units with it to 5 star.

There's only two Red units who have Fury and that's Eldigan and Hinata. It's nowhere near as saturated as pulling from the Healer banner. Yes, you'll probably end up with Eldigan instead, but at least he's a really viable unit.

Yeah, exactly. That's more or less what I was getting at.

Ruby+ is definitely the best option for survivability, no question. However, if you have access to Triangle Adept, it's literally the exact same thing minus the A slot which is why I wouldn't recommend dumping feathers and/or orbs into it... unless you have the extra currency lying around of course lol.

Which team is everyone going to join in the Cleric Wars? I haven't decided, but depending on everyone's decision I might join with you guys or just end up joining a less popular team for easy feathers.

Also does anyone know if Brash Assault activates when engaging ranged characters with Close Counter?

I'm considering passing this one because I don't want to be given a team of healers while the enemy actually has attackers.


Or maybe I'll just go Elise.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on June 26, 2017, 05:08:22 am
I think I'll pick team Priscilla and then the runner up if she fails.

Since every single unit on this gauntlet is colorless and most simpletons will put their healer of choice as leader I'll set Cecilia as mine.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cbh8iDS.png)

I can change gronnraven+ to gronnblade if anyone on team Priscilla is going to run her with hone/fortify cavalry (like me).
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 26, 2017, 07:00:04 am
I think I'll join Priscilla as well since I think Elise and Sakura will be the more popular teams in the gauntlet. Only because I want some easy feathers without having to log on the game every 30 minutes just to keep my position.

Those in Team Priscilla will also have help from my Cordelia:

(http://i.imgur.com/i9rxaw5.png)

Even with -Atk, she still hits like a truck.

Also why don't you use Triangle Adept for your Raven build? +3 Atk seems poultry compared to the 60 Atk you can be getting if you run Adept while attacking Colorless and Blue units.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on June 26, 2017, 07:18:37 am
Two reasons:

1) I run gronnblade 99% of the time. That gronnraven+ tome is only for the occasional archer or Genny (think of that awful map with the SoV mages on defensive tiles) and even then gronnblade and horse emblem's brute force tends to be superior. ATK+3 is only there because it's free. LaD and Fury3 are overkill while Cecilia's fully buffed. Escape Route is also filler as I ran out of Henrys for G tome breaker.

2) Resources. The only source of TA3 at 4* is Roy. I only have a 5* and even though I don't even like Roy sacrificing him (for a build I wouldn't even use) sounds wasteful. I'm pretty sure IS will implement a new feature to change unwanted 5*s for something more valuable than 2,000 feathers somewhere down the line, which is why I'm diametrically opposed to sacrifice them for anything but weapons. TA2 comes from Selena at 4*, but she's a valuable source of reposition and threaten speed, so again, sacrificing one for build I'd rarely use is wasteful.

Female Robin is a lance user, Tiki looks like an Axe one, Gaius is Bow, and Frederick is Dagger. I'll probably just get Female Robin, cause it would be nice to have one that isn't just Green Male Robin that everyone seems to make her out to be.

Also yay, finally at Tier 20. I'm not even going to attempt to keep that rank. It's just nice to know I was able to get in at least once.

Man, the Priscilla / Clarine gauntlet is super tight. Is that because of the new loser multiplier ?
On the summer banner... I might actually give it a go  just once or twice if the skills are good. I'm curious about dagger Fred if that's indeed a dagger (could also be blue mage, right ?), seeing how skills have been powercreeping with unique effects lately, are they actually going to make a ninja (beside Kagero I suppose) anything above decent for once ?? And I guess Tiki will finally increase the very undercrowded strong axe user.

So, who have you guys been feathering up to 5* so far, and are you happy with it ?
I've done Tharja, Klein, Xander, Camus and Nino.

Now that's the sort of skills a ninja should have. The panic ploys and weapons, gravity, firesweep lances and bows preventing counters, and I think there's a healer walking around with a weapon that prevents all attack by the target in the turn... But no, they keep giving those stuff to new units that don't work with them (Legion's high Atk and Spd why does he care to debuff after combat) and ninjas are useless. Give a ninja firesweep and poison or other debuffs that apply after any combat even when attacked, or a gravity with hit and run !

Clarisse Grand Hero Battle releasing tomorrow (6-28). Infernal Mode makes a return.

(http://i.imgur.com/dlhssFJ.jpg)

So, who have you guys been feathering up to 5* so far, and are you happy with it ?
I've done Tharja, Klein, Xander, Camus and Nino.

The characters I promoted to 5* were:

1. Tharja - I actually pulled a 5* one before, but had to promote a 4* one cause that one was +Spd.
2. Zephiel x2 - I wanted a good Red Armored unit. The second one was fed to Celica for Life and Death 3.
3. Palla - Flier Emblem shenanigans.
4. Xander - Horse Emblem shenanigans.
5. Hana x2 - Life and Death 3 inheritance
6. Effie - Wanted to make a Brave Lance+ build on her, and the only Effie I pulled who had +Atk was a 4* one.
7. Nowi
8. Female Corrin
9. Odin x2 - Blade Tome inheritance
10. Reinhardt - Same reasons as Tharja except the 4* was +Atk
11. Cherche - Flier Emblem shenanigans
12. Camilla
13. Nino x3 - As soon as I promoted a neutral Nino, I pulled a +Spd/-Def one soon after. I was livid. Fed the third one to Bunilla for Blade Tome.
14. Setsuna - Quad bow shenanigans
16. Felicia - I liked her in Fates...
17. Kagero - Same reason as Nino. Pulled a 5* +Atk/-Spd and accepted my fate. Pulled a 4* +Atk/-Def soon after. Happy and mad at the same time.

I'm happy with all of them except Camilla. I just really wanted her back when the game launched and only was able to manage pull a 4*.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Koop on June 28, 2017, 08:38:19 am
Like Robin ♂ you need a +Atk Camilla to make the most of her. With Legion being a thing I figured I would promote him and Camilla then feed her the Legion Axe+ (or maybe Grandpa Wesker's Silver Axe+)

The units I've promoted to 5* are:

Sharena: Good all rounder, appears as bonus unit a lot
Anna: Good at killing Reinhardt, Ninian and Azura. Appears as bonus unit a lot.
Eirika: Like the character, great unit. +atk -def
Xander: Same as Eirika
Camus: He's broken lol
Nino: best unit that comes in 3 star rarity. Got her with +speed -hp so yay
Gordin: Food for some other archer I guess

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 28, 2017, 09:26:54 am
Grand Hero Battle for Clarisse is out with Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal difficulties available. No banner release like last time.

Was able to complete all the difficulties with little to no stress compared to Legion's. Game Over'd once in Lunatic, but was able to breeze once I learned through my one mistake.

(http://i.imgur.com/3WVKNny.png)

No reinforcements like Legion's so this one is a lot easier, but comes with 6 enemies to deal with in Infernal with all of them having high stats backed with prominent skills like a Green Cavalier with Triangle Adept to counter Male Robin if you plan to bait Clarisse or the Thief (who has high Spd and Windsweep to negate most Distant Counter units).

In Infernal, Titania was the MVP here. With the Horse Buffs, she was able to tank both hits consecutively from the Thief and Green Cavalier. Due to her +Spd Nature, Distant Counter, and Green Tome Breaker, she was able to still counter the Thief and still had enough HP to double and kill the Cavalier.

I then had Reinhardt take out Clarisse, the Blue Mage, and the Red Sword Fighter, with Xander heavily wounding the Red Cavalier who was low enough that even Titania with Green Emerald Axe was able to kill him in one shot. Then I proceeded to finish off the Thief with Xander.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Darkflare on June 28, 2017, 10:08:30 am
Units I 5*ed
Marth - Was good before SI, but stopped bringing him to battles. Wasted 20k feathers since I ended up feeding his Pivot to Effie.
Effie - Best armored unit. Has worked well for me.
Tharja - One of the best red mages around.
Xander - First GHB unit I upgraded to 5*. Has worked well, but I usually stick to Tharja for Red.
Olivia - Mostly for arena score, the few extra stat points don't hurt.
Reinhardt - Oh sweet I pulled this guy. Well, neutral stats are good enough and I doubt I'll get another anytime soon. (Pulls 2 Reinhardts with +Def/-SPD, one of them a 5* a few days later.)
Camus - Arena shenanigans.

Spoiler: Clarisse Lunatic (click to see content)
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on June 28, 2017, 05:52:28 pm
infernal was some bullshit. it's essential to have a unit that can take the hits from the dagger unit and the green cavalier and kill them in return. the dagger is the hardest because of windsweep. my fury ryoma with the speed seal, quick riposte and rallied speed was able to do it. i figure a quick riposte tharja could do it as well, as long as you get her speed up
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on June 28, 2017, 07:29:17 pm
I found this GHB's Infernal difficulty much easier than Legion's. Horse Emblem Fury Xander can tank the whole enemy team (minus the blue mage) if he's standing on a defensive tile. Watching Clarisse deal a grand total of 2 points of damage (and that's without fortify cavalry) with her special is delightful.

Units I 5*'d: Chrom (benched), Nowi, Michalis, Xander, Camus, Cecilia, Draug (fodder). Clarisse and Tharja are next.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on June 28, 2017, 09:03:41 pm
Summer units max base stats (neutral with no weapons/passives):

Gaius:
HP - 34
Atk - 30
Spd - 37
Def - 19
Res - 28

Frederick:
HP - 40
Atk - 32
Spd - 31
Def - 28
Res - 18

Female Robin:
HP - 35
Atk - 32
Spd - 34
Def - 28
Res - 29

Tiki:
HP - 35
Atk - 36
Spd - 30
Def - 32
Res - 24

Overall nothing too spectacular compared to the Bridal banner, but Gaius is looking really good here. Hate to say it, but he's literally a much better Setsuna as a Brave Bow user. So if you plan on pulling on this banner and missed out on Bride Cordelia, Gaius is a good alternative.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 28, 2017, 10:42:55 pm
Infernal for anyone who 5*'d Xander and Camus (because everyone should, just do it already) and nothing else. Not even skill inheritance, just raw stats from two broken units.

I had a run where the green mage went to the right and the ninja hid to the left, and that resulted in Xander's death by ninja + sword infantry, but leaving my Sakura to the right from the start instead of going to the bottom left gave me the same configuration as that video and a victory. Didn't even need the heal I was planning for.
Basically tanking everything physical from the defense tiles and killing the blue mage with AOE "fuck your weapon triangle" special. Even 3* Olivia comfortably tanks the red cavalry somehow for Camus to kill him.
5* Xander 3* Ursula 3* Donnel too ?? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2GZZebsHqc) (still Xander tanking everything, Ursula and Donnel replacing Camus)
Or 5* RobiM and 4* Tharja + Nino (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fke4zFQCA9A) for full mage.

Hahaha even better. Damn, that's really tight.

Based on the videos, it seems you have to get in there and attack right away. I'm still working on Infernal, but this isn't nearly as difficult as the Legion GHB, nor do they hit as hard. It's just the shitty starting position you have to work around.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Byakko on June 29, 2017, 01:36:58 am
Yeah, you go in with Xander because the blue mage actually has a shitty starting point and by the time he reaches you, you've countered half the map to death and charged your special (I knew these specials shouldn't be underestimated !). You just have to make sure you can take out the runaway cavalry, and have a way to finish off the ninja.
The 3* Raigh Donnel Doublivia tactic gets you in super deep shit cornering you to the edge of the map with a large wave coming at you, I'm baffled that fucking Raigh survives this with his 19 DEF, considering that these maps tend to have inflated stats that can one-shot your biggest tank if you don't one-shot everyone first. But as soon as Olivia survives the cavalry in the Xander-Camus tactic, you know that they dialed back the crazy on this one.

#TeamSakura

Sakura was in a good lead when it started, but fell off almost immediately.

Also, Infernal wrapped!

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

I had little issues wiping out the map on several different scenarios, but the blue mage was a pain in the ass in the end. I had to keep Nowi at full health most of the time because of him. I could only use her to take out the red units (they did no damage at all) and keep her on stand by to tank his hit and kill him.
Aside from that, Vantage Ryoma/Kagero did work.

Was able to pull a +Spd/-Res Robin, +Atk/-HP Gaius, and a -Spd Frederick. I promptly fed Freddy to Clarisse for Atk/Spd Seal 2. I still need to get Tiki, but I'll hold off for now. Banner lasts till the end of July so I can bide my time.

With those IVs I'm going to make Robin into a Firesweep Lance user and Gaius into a Brave Bow (which the game graciously gave me a 5* Klein while pulling just for this occassion).

Robin's Lance Valor and Double SP weekend bonus stacks, I'm able to get 12 SP for every kill, holy crap.

xander was going to be my next 5 star unit but i got a 4 star mae a couple days ago so he'll have to wait

whew i have sakura

Well, I have been training my boy Legion last week so I guess I could put him to use.

However, I just got done putting mad work getting my 3 star +Spd/-Res Nino up to a 5 star, so don't think he's worth the 5 star upgrade ahead of Effie, Xander and Cordelia right now. This will be a rough couple of weeks...

my tempest team was tharja/kagero/azura/sakura and i'll probably make mae a healer to replace sakura

maybe i'll replace tharja with nino if the tempest trials endboss is mystery blue mage/bruno/loki

For me Tobin ever only proc'd 1 stat per level before I benched him.

My tempest trials team was Sanaki, Lucina, Ninian and Reinhardt. Now I can just swap Lucina for Alm.

Ehh, he's not that bad.....SURELY you do need to give him IS to make him viable but he can be a decent unit. A very near, below average decent unit...

If you just care about getting your weekly feathers/orbs, just stick one of them into your core team (regardless of level/skills) and just go about Arena like you would normally do.

A lot of people add a random bonus hero despite being underleveled and whatnot just for the sake of the 2x point bonus.

Actually, this might work if I team Xander, Hector and Takumi (all 5* Lvl40) up with my 4* Peri. Thanks.
BTW, check your FEH friend requests. You might see a familiar Fire Emblem 1 flier there. ;)

Oh nice,I just 5 starred Legion yesterday.Anyone got any skill inheritance recommendations for him?I was thinking of throwing away his Obstruct for something more offensive
I also pulled Summer Tiki today which kinda invalidated that
Unrelated to that but I also 5* an Olivia so I finally have a 5* dancer for all those god damn grand battles.Now I just need to level her up

1.5 is out. datamine so far reveals a map that is identical to the one in which you fight berkut in echoes, but it's probably for tempest trials and not a ghb

Looks like this is the big prize seal this time:
Quote
When any skill compares this unit's Spd\nstat to another unit's, this unit's Spd stat\nis counted as +5 over actual value.
Seems pretty niche (it's pretty obvs meant for Alm). Is there another skill reliant on speed besides windsweep and watersweep?

Yea, I don't have 20 good units for Squad Assault. Going to have to run Chain run instead.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Titiln on July 05, 2017, 04:08:44 am
the battles in squad assault are always the same
http://imgur.com/a/mBtAz

you dont necessarily have to use 4 great units each team either, you could manage the first map with a good green and a good blue (and two lvl1 jobbers for filler) for example

Suuuuper glad about the permanent tempest mode (chain and squad) if it's going to be as cost effective for SP / HM / feathers, and if it gives decent skill seals.
chain challenge chapter 1+2 on normal gives 3sp each kill and all the units have shitty stats. 30 stamina for 10 fights :pwn:
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on July 05, 2017, 08:40:55 am
Isn't the 3 SP per kill in Chain Challenge only applied during the first completion? I assume it's the same way those Yusuke Kozaki maps worked. If anything they're great for farming HM.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Foobs on July 06, 2017, 01:30:21 am
There's an exploit. You keep the SP from past rounds even if you give up, so you can actually cycle through 9 battles and give up on the last, always getting +3 SP.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on July 06, 2017, 02:34:07 am
I already cleared Chain Challenges 1-6 since I wasn't aware of the exploit, but I'm going to save the 10 battle Chain Challenge of Chapter 7 and 8 as my SP farm. The worst part is that these chapters have that stupid labyrinth map with the breakable walls.

So... fellow F2P players. How's the squad assault going? :shifty:

Also, Mae the bae finally came home last night. 2 sessions and got her on the last pull. Still have plenty of orbs left over too.

+DEF,-HP. Not the greatest but I ain't mad at it.
(http://i.imgur.com/NTZBXBi.png)

I'm reading that she's an expensive build tho. I'd use my 5* Reinhart if I didn't hate him with a passion. All I can give her at the moment is Darting/Death Blow or Fury. WoM might be good too, but I'm not sure what build to go with yet. Is there anywhere else to look up builds besides the wiki page?

She's expensive to make sets for but it's worth it. You could use life and death 3, keep desperation and if you have Odins give her his tome and moonbow.

Bound Battle with Alm and Celica is out with Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal difficulties with a total of 9 orbs when completing all of them. A banner has also been released with Clair, Lukas, and Genny. Surprisingly no Celica to the anger of many to round out the Valentia themed banners.

Beat all the difficulties, but Infernal was annoying due to that Green Mage with Windsweep and Darting Blow (41 Spd on initiation). You need to kill that Green Mage quickly as any damage inflicted on her will be healed immediately by the Green Axe Flier (who only appears in Infernal) who will use Reciprocal Aid. Had to bust out Quickened Pulse to make sure Titania was able to successfully bait and kill her in one round with Green Tome Breaker + Iceberg due to the Mage standing on a defense tile.

Also be careful of the Blue Cavalier unit as he has Pass so keep that in mind while trying to bait him as he might end up passing your unit into attacking another.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Magical Amber on July 06, 2017, 11:51:41 am
You could try using Nino with Green Tomebreaker with the appropriate buffs. Though unless yours is +Spd or merged to at least +1, you might need to slap Speed +3/Fury 3 in order to cancel the Mage's Wind sweep (this is assuming she's buffed with Hone Spd). You can also do it with Tharja or another Red Mage, but they're reliant on having a +Spd nature due to having a lower base Spd than Nino.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Koop on July 06, 2017, 12:42:30 pm


Used Reinhardt, Sanaki, Hector and Olivia.

1. Sanaki has Q. riposte to kill green mage. She also uses her "bulk" to meat shield the axe pegasus lol.
2. Hector is there just to kill the blue mage cavalier (from the left side)
3. Reinhardt has Lancebreaker because the lance cavalier can take 4 hits from +atk, death blow, hone atk Reinhardt (why) . Then he mops up Alm and Celica.
4. level 26 Olivia lol

That's an interesting take. I wouldn't mind having her for that use if mine wasn't -HP. Plus, Bride Lyn has been a blessing.

She's expensive to make sets for but it's worth it. You could use life and death 3, keep desperation and if you have Odins give her his tome and moonbow.

Ugh... what's shitty is I used up all my Odins for Moonbow already lol. But yeah, I heard she's a beast post SI with Odin's tome. Life and Death has also been evading me lately, but I do have Fury to work with.
I could always use Reinhardt for the time being, but the hate runs deep.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Heroes [iOS/Android]
Post by: Koop on July 07, 2017, 12:44:17 am
I hate Reinhardt too as he ruins my Arena runs with 80% success. Odin and Reinhardt should swap attack values.

But you can't deny that he's probably one of if not the strongest unit in the game.

Post by: Koop on July 07, 2017, 11:24:31 am
A silver sword would have been better. He has good hp and def. Good res for a sword. Atk is average and speed is bad but not Chrom/Alfonse bad.

Skills are bad but at least he has some. Atk+3 will push him to 46 atk with Armorslayer but fury can do that with all stats and he has the hp to utilize it.

He seems usable.

Post by: Foobs on July 07, 2017, 02:56:15 pm
So that leak was accurate then. A bad weapon, abysmally bad skills, nothing decent to inherit. But his stats are high...and really poorly distributed. The icing on the cake is that he's only worth 1,000 feathers. What a shame.

Post by: Magical Amber on July 08, 2017, 03:49:08 am
If there's one thing I like about Chain Challenge/Squad Assault/Tempest Trials is that it's making me appreciate the movement support skills. Before I was incredibly reliant on using Dancers for additional movement and kills, but after getting accustomed to Flier and Horse Emblem shenanigans I see myself shying away from them more often and exploring more team builds with Draw Back/Reposition.

Speaking of Flier Emblem, anyone have builds they recommend for Minerva? I was thinking of Quick Riposte, but I feel as though she's fast enough as it is to really utilize it. She's +Atk/-HP.
