Today I learned that there's a Mobile / iOS subforum on CAG.

 

I'm a bit overwhelmed at all the possible combinations with Skill Inheritance right now.  Even something as simple as Clarine has things like: Wings of Mercy, Heavenly Light, Kindled Fire Balm, Rehabilitate, Hone Atk, Breath of Life, etc.

Haven't even bothered with skill inheritance yet, but after about 3 garbage rolls I finally got a 5* takumi and Abel in the same roll. Now I can be a part of the cancerous takumi arena meta.

Congrats. I rolled until i got a Young Tiki.

 

So far I working on a healer first. 

Thinking of taking Wrys Heavenly Light skill and adding it to Elise, so I can help all my allies for 10HP every 2 turns.

 

I also wanna give some counter Skills to Chrom and make him a beast.

I suspect there will be a banner to coincide with Echoes when it debuts in May, so time to start saving for that one haha. I hope the current meta gets upended soon ... I rarely bother with Arena anymore (no Takumi on my roster).

I want to get this thread moving again, trying to get people to post here instead of the JP niche thread.  Don't know if it will work.

 

I'm in such good mood because after a couple weeks of no orbs, I finally pulled a Spring Lucina.  Two, in fact. My pity rate was up to 4.75% and I hadn't scored a single Spring banner unit yet.  It was so frustrating.  So I spent 160 orbs and finally got a 5* foucs.

Spoiler

 

I finished the final round of the voting gauntlet at rank #1218. Total rank #7382.  I earned every flag possible and spent the maximum possible amount of flags (minus 5) on the final round under Team Camilla.  Would have easily ranked in the 800s if I had those extra five flags.   It was super nice to get a huge influx of feathers from the voting results.  Like I said I had every flag, and I played a ton, so I missed maybe 40-80 110pt attempts over the course of the three matchups.  Meaning ~7000 people literally poopsocked this event and played a ton during sleeping hours.  Every time I was battling for 110 pts near the end I was going up close to 100 ranks.  I think a person could have only scored about 8800 more points max., than I did.

I was top 10k (edged out of too 5k in the last hour), top 5k, and top 30k for team Minerva. So 1700, 2100, and 2300 feathers and 1000 feathers from Minerva winning twice. And top 5k cumulatively for 2600 feathers. So 8700 feathers in total. Plus they gave us 5000 feathers. From the Twitter quiz during the gauntlet so it was a good haul. I did do the battle whenever possible except for sleeping and playing persona 5, which from the looks things I am playing longer sessions than the average person.

I am almost ready to unveil my flier emblem team. The sp grind continues.

The new update sure has shaken up how arena rankings work. I am interested to see if I can still make it into the top 5k for that.

Yeah dude, I have 41.5k feathers now and am deciding who to upgrade.  Going to take Olivia or Tharja to 5*, probably Tharja!

 

I've been scoring 4430-4470 in arena and can't really do much better than that atm with my F2P setup.  I like my team of Lucina, Nino, Ephraim, bonus character.   But I'm going to need some better guys if I'm going to improve that score at all.  Ideally, I would score a Ryoma and possibly remake the team into something better.  Still waiting on some inheritables like Death Blow 3 for Ephraim and haven't decided on a C skill for Nino yet.  I've been desperately trying to pull a Linde, Effie, Ninian, Azura, and Nowi with no luck so far.  No Hector or good archers either.  My team is kinda stuck for now.

 

I would run double caster  (with double resposition/draw back, or possibly drag back), one melee, one dancer.  That would probably be ideal.  But we are basically forming three man teams because of the required bonus character.  I keep bringing a 4* Anna, or a 4* Michalis or something that doesn't even get used lol.  They sit in the back and maybe plink someone once. 

 

Finally got defenses last week and this week for the first time in over a month.  I've tried -everything-.   Switching to an all Red team of Lucina (renewal 3), Leo, Olivia, Lucina (swordbreaker 3) is finally getting me defenses.  WOW has that been frustrating.  All blue infantry (or one flier) didn't score a single defense in two weeks.

 

I have been ranking about ~15,000 the last few weeks.

Im up to 37 orbs and need three more so I can double summon later today.

I want a Bunny character. Xander or Camilla is my hope.

I like the new extra skill thing.

Arena scoring has completely changed now. Bst seems to no longer matter as a hector will bring you roughly the same score as an ursula, 1 of the highest bst characters vs 1 of the lowest. Merged status seems to matter most now plus havin a full set of skills equipped.


The changes to arena plus the new ability to move around characters before battle will make defenses even harder to get now I think

This is my current Arena team so far:  I have two options for Lucina.   Honestly man, Ephraim is a beast.  He is a godly tank and probably my favorite unit so far.   Might just give him ATK+3 so it can work on both the player phase and enemy phase.   Been waiting on a DeathBlow3 for him.  Ephraim hits so hard.   might give him Lancebreaker 3.  But Seal Def isn't bad at all when he's frequently baiting on the enemy phase.  Reposition is huge.  Arena is all about those movement abilities.

Having 5* of a bonus unit each month would make a great deal of difference.

It almost seems like a bad idea to put abilities and inherits in every slot now.  You're just going to get matched up with much harder teams.  I see a BIG difference (in losses) when fighting against decked out vantage/counter A B C filled teams. 

 

Wish I had a Ryoma, Takumi, Nowi, Hector-ish (but prob not him on D) counter defense team.  They make people cry. Don't have any of those units.

People have been saying they're getting matched with decked out teams regardless, so might as well deck em out and aim for a higher score. But yeah deaths will hurt a lot more now

The real nightmare everyone will have now is horse emblem. A team of horse mages of every color decked out with blade tones and hone/fortifify Calvary. With bst not mattering everyone's chances of encountering this nightmare is much higher now.

bleh, horse emblem and flier emblem.  :puke:

 

I've seen exactly zero of those so far.  I was going to shoot for a flier emblem team because I have 5* Minerva and 5* Hinoka to pass on, or keep, hone fliers.   But I haven't been able to pull a green tome camilla this banner so I've kind of given up on that.  She's basically required, as far as I'm concerned bc you need one tome user. 

 

You simply can't run all magic, or all physical, in arena. 

 

Horse emblem seems like too much work for F2P.  I don't have Eldigan nor extra blade tomes to just hand out. It would take a shit-ton of SP on characters I don't even have yet.  Not gonna start sacrificing 5*s for FOTM blade tome inherits, yuck.

S Camilla really does round out the flier team. I gave her gronnraven instead of gronnblade because I prefer balance over hyper offense. Now she is the true counter to archers on the flier team. Michalis was nice and all with iotes shield, but he really wasn't enough to handle takumi.

New banner unit Lukas has insanely high hp and def. I was training oboro to be a monster tank so it actually sucks that Lukas is better than her in almost all relevant stats except resistance

Yeah, saw that.  He seems like a cool unit.  Should be useful in some GHBs. 

 

I had 20 orbs so did one pull this morning.  Actually received a Clair.   But she seems totally useless and I got +HP/-spd to boot.

It turns out that having a 4* +10 merged unit will help you score higher in the arena than a 5* unmerged unit. This makes sense since the 4*+10 version of a unit is stronger than a 5* unmerged same unit. This can really help us gain separation in the arena since the new arena rules has everyone so closely clustered together in score. And it may be more viable since it would only cost 22000 feathers to achieve provided you have 11 3* units compared to 120000 feather for 6 4* units( 5*+5 is the equivalent of 4*+10 I believe)

Let us not even mention the chances of trying to pull multiples of a 5* unit for this example.

I had 40 orbs and did two summons and I only got 1 5 star and it was another gosh darn healer and no bunny heroes.

Was so annoyed. I dont need to that many healers.

So my this week's Arena score was capped at about 4460 all week.  I dropped to 61k rank which is horrible.  I just couldn't do runs without losing units, and I've been losing LOTS, sometimes even entire matches.  I tried my last deathless run this afternoon and things were going well until I ran into this abomination after 5 wins, 1 death.

 

IMG_3182_zpskix00cs5.png

 

But I was actually able to win somehow, and didn't lose any units yay.   Lucina killed all three Hectors and I got lucky on one turn when the last remaining Hector attacked Michalis instead of her. 

 

IMG_3183_zpstmsrqtbo.png

 

So I finally finished my Arena for the week just 40min before end time and got a pretty decent score considering my team.  I really can't do much better than this.   My Tharja and Bunny Lucina are approaching level 40 now but I just don't have all the inheritables to give them.  Gotta figure out a way to reform this team into something better.  Other arena teams are just stacked now.

My flier emblem team is complete.

Spoiler

 

Minerva +Def/-Res

Hauteclere

Reposition

Aegis

Life and Death 3

Wings of Mercy 3

Ward Fliers

 

Cordelia +HP/-Def

Brave Lance+

Draw Back

Dragon Fang

Fury 3

Desperation 3

Goad Fliers

 

Hinoka +Atk/-Def

Brave Lance+

Reposition

Escutcheon

Death Blow 3

Drag Back

Hone Fliers

 

Spring Camilla +Atk/-HP

Gronnraven

Draw Back

Bonfire

Triangle Adept 3

Axebreaker 3

Goad Fliers

 

Some comments on the team. Cordelia is obviously the ace of my team. If she has dragon fang and desperation up she can kill Hector with the necessary buffs. She has draw back because if she is trying to escape, then she needs to be in the back. Fury is the best choice of A skill because extra speed and bulk and only 3 less attack than death blow. The 6 damage from fury doesnt matter at all since she's not meant to be hit after entering desperation range and in fact it helps her reach it if she counters a particularly weak sword.

 

Hinoka, the buffer of the team, yet she is already strong enough by herself to wipe out many folks. However I do have her in a more defensive role as can be seen with escutcheon. Her job is to buff the others, rescue them from enemy range with reposition or hurl them towards enemies, clean up advantageous foes, soften up disadvantageous foes(which I theoretically believe she will survive a battle against with escutcheon), or simply tank a hit. Versatility is her job.

 

Minerva has a similar role to Hinoka, minus the buffing, but with more tankiness. With Aegis up, she can survive a blast from nino or julia. Ward Fliers is nice, but I think I'd prefer a third Goad Fliers.

 

Spring Camilla with gronnraven and triangle adept, the worst nightmare of the worst nightmare of fliers, archers. Sure she can use gronnblade, but her synergy with the team is so much greater with raven. Do I need her to do 84 damage in one hit when cordelia can do more in 4 hits? No not really. What every flier team needs is a hard counter against archers and spring camilla is amazing at that.

 

This team can wipe out all blues and reds with little consequence so the biggest threats to my team as Ive seen so far is nino and julia who can very realistically kill 3/4 of the team in a round. And Hectors, no not a single hector but many of them. The only way for me to kill them without suffering considerable damage is cordelia with dragon fang, but it being a 4 charge move, it can only be activated if cordelia had a prior battle meaning she would be useless against a team of 4 hectors! So against 4 hectors minerva and camilla would have to do all the work while suffering counterattack damage from each fight. I can't say if that would be a winnable fight if all the hectors had vantage.
