56 orbs and 13 pulls and hey it's pretty good. Saving the other half of the money for mage banner, ill advised as that may be. Might break down before that though since tharja is a 4* summon.

Pull Azura +def - hp
Effie +def -hp(I'll stick with my +res -hp I think)
Setsuna +atk -res
Matthew hone speed fodder
Hinata fury fodder
Fae renewal fodder
Barst reposition fodder

I am thinking of putting Escutcheon on Azura.  Tell me why I shouldn't use that for a Speical.

 

Moonbow is the other choice, I know.  But I want to keep my dancer alive, not send them into combat much.

you don't want escutcheon on Azura because it requires two hits to get charged. To get it charged Azura will have to take some damage. Even red units will put the hurt on her despite double the wta because of her bad defense. at which point escutcheon won't save her from an attack from a non red unit. And she wouldn't need the help of escutcheon anyway to take on another red unit.

Not hating on defense specials though, I love it on hinoka since she'll charge it right away with brave lance, kill the enemy and then escutcheon will save her against wta axe.

Who knows maybe the math actually works out in your favor.

I'm playing around with my Minerva, Hinoka, and Cordelia.  Trying to decide which assists to give them.  Through all of your flier emblem play, do you have any remarks regarding Draw Back vs Reposition?   I'm going to give a combination of both those skills to Hinoka and Minerva.  Might put Drag Back and Swift Sparrow 2 on Cordelia too.

Reposition is vastly superior for offense. It gives your flier 4 movement. For defensive purposes, they have felt roughly the same. However i can theorize that fliers with weaker defenses would prefer draw back since they would prefer to be outside enemy range, where as a repositioner wouldn't mind being attacked.
I can also say that in some areas drawback would have been preferable to reposition for getting a flier in the just the position as reposition might send them too far away from the preferred target.

So with all the May quest I was able to do another  summon.

And I got another Ryoma. Was like um ok.

Was hoping for something I did not have 5* wise

This GHB is pretty tough.  I'm currently leveling my Cecelia from 36 -> 40 in order to beat it with that comp, using Reinhardt instead of Ursula.

Very likely going to be 5*ing Xander though.  He's an excellent horse tank with a distant counter weapon.  Xander, Cecelia, Reinhardt, bonus hero/Frederick should be a very good horse emblem comp.

Was fairly easy for me. The horse mage is so slow that it can't double the hinoka whom is pretty slow. So she solos the the red sword and horse mage. Which leaves a 3v3 with everyone else

I'm clearly not very good at this game, because there was obviously a lot of math done there pre-combat in order for him to use the people he did and to be willing to take the hits that he took.  My brilliant masterstroke was to replace Effie with a healer so that I could heal Ryoma out of Vantage 2 range; thus preventing him from taking Spec damage from the swordsman or die to the healer. 

 

Which reminds me, I have no issues with permadeath in the Fire Emblem franchise as a whole, but that's because those games don't delete the character from the cartridge and then make you pay actual money to try and get them back.  If that's what happens here, there is zero chance that I will play that way.

Permadeath in fire emblem is great for the fact that you have to play and strategize in a way that allows all your units to survive, which is much more fun than yolo berserker rush sacrifice.
Technically heroes already has that aspect without permadeath since you score better with no deaths, missions that require all 4 units survive.

There's a difference between losing one for a play-through of the game, and losing one until you pay to get them back and also get lucky while doing so.

Yes and I'm saying heroes already has aspects of why permadeath is good without actually having permadeath. There is no disagreement here. They're never going to put real permadeath in a game where you pay to get units.

Screw the 3* video.  Beat it normally with my own strat.

 

Units don't permadie in FE:H, what are you talking about?

I see now that they're talking about having an event where the characters would not be able to be used again in that particular event.  Basically, a mini campaign.  

 

That's a far sight different than the Polygon thing I read that said "Nintendo promised that this mysterious future in-game event will “require tactical thinking,” unless players want to lose their favorite heroes for good."

Wow, Xander has 170 rating at 5*.  That's very good for a horse.  He is basically Eldigan with distant counter, and +3def, -2res, -1hp.  What would you put in his a) and b) slots?  Siegfried really makes him top notch. 

 

EDIT: apparently the other melee, non-brave weapon horse ratings are 163, 165, 171, 170, 166.  So all in the 163-171 range, depending on weapon damage, and favorable stat split.

Yeah it's just the horse mages that have low rating because it's a fucking mage. On a horse.
Quick riposte is an obvious choice for b slot. A slot is up in the air. Can be anything. Even armoured blow is decent

Well in other news the arena season gave me enough feathers to promote someone.

Meet the Flying Fortress beruka. She's a trash unit they said. Turn her into feathers said. I blocked out that noise!

IMG_3902_zpsuep3ilaa.png

+def -spd. Literally the only beruka I have ever pulled had the exact boon bane I wanted.
With fortify fliers buff she has 49 defense and 28 resistance. With ward fliers she has 53 defense and 32 resistance. She will deal 42 damage with ignis. I wanted threaten attack but I don't have access to level 3 version of it. Threaten defense will synergize with caeda though. Goad flyers could work too.I tried to get Lukas for fortress defense but no luck.

Nice one man, that is awesome.

 

This is what the game is all about now too.  Just making some really cool, unique 5*s.

Im at 10% rate(focus plus normal). This game is suffering.

I can top that. 

 

IMG_3258_zpswrz5zio0.png

 

 

apparently we both fail.  I spent a bunch of money and now I'm regretting it.  I'm pulling only greens to get Hector till the banner is done.  To make matters worse, I spent 43 orbs on the wrong banner before inflating this pity rate. 

 

But honestly, the thing I am the most frustrated about with this game is that I have gotten exactly zero Lonqus and zero Kleins.  So I have at least four characters that need Vantage 3, and at least three that need Deathblow 3.   It's frustrating to have spent money of this magnitude and not have the inherits that I desperately need.

also I am close to having a +10 three star Cherche due to all this nonsense.   I have seven of them and never gotten a 4*.  By my count, once I have 11 she will be just as good as a 5* hero, besides needing a weapon.  But will have a couple extra stat points.

Yeah Lady Luck has given and Lady Luck has taken away. I have taken off my credit card from the Apple Store because I have clearly proven to myself I have little self control. Doesn't mean I won't spend on the game anymore but at the very least it won't be with cash that I decided to spend on a whim.
I am more than happy to get duplicates of characters I want. It has already been proven that 4* +10 characters are real game changers. I have enough for subaki +7, but I can't figure out what Boon bane I should go with. I'm leaning towards +atk -res for now
But simple rage rises from within with every wrys pulled

To sum it up. Yolo pulls the are the best. You expect nothing. Paid pulls suck cuz you expect to get something.

Got 3 final pulls with the hero fest orbs today. Pulled a second Azura. At least the pity rate didn't go to waste.

Any luck on your guys ends?
I got 2 Azura and ogma with my 173 orbs. Some good fodder to start off but only trash towards the end...

I am on my way to a porch bbq and I am figuring how can I stop at the store and buy some itunes cards real quick before I go.   That's where I'm at.  Might be drunk later and not able to drive. 

 

On my initial 43 orbs or whatever I pulled an Azura and a second crappy +Hp / -Spd Takumi.  That seems like ages ago.  I spent a grip of money since then, and all I got was a Ryoma.  I never should have spent this much money.   Now my pity rate is high and I'm already pot committed.  So one last dance before the banner ends today.

 

It makes sense to spring a little during a bonus rate banner like this.  But I made the mistake of spending way too much.  Gonna try to not spend any money after this, because this is absurd.

Tell me about it. A few good initial pulls and then were suckered into betting the bank on these rates smh

Good god.  So this just happened.  My last $40.  Started with 84 orbs going for Greens Only for Hector.   Roughly 30-40% of my summons had no green orbs at all.  So this is what happens to break my 7% focus pity rate. 

Spoiler

 

Fucking pissed right?  Then I saw that I pulled +speed / -res Kagero that's awesome.  She's actually a very useful unit and one I always wanted so that's cool I guess.   Still mad about the rate though, because I'm pulling for Hector.

 

Then this happens:

Spoiler

 

Couldn't believe my eyes after all that bad luck.  17 orbs left to my name and I finally get him.  I even spent another $1.99 to complete the summons by buying three final orbs lol.  So I finally got Hector. +spd / -res which is horrible though.

 

I'm very glad that I got at least two more useful 5* units.  Could have been so much worse.  I pulled the whole banner which was the point.  The summoning simulator was WAY more favorable than what I experienced though.  I'm ashamed to say how much money I spent on this stupid banner.  Never again.  Gonna just chalk this up to a learning experience like I lost a bunch of money at the Casino.

The psychology behind it is amazing.   You get lucky with 20 or 40 orbs and it just makes you want to pull more.  Easy to stop if you were F2P because you have no choice.   Otherwise you want to pull more.  On the other hand you get your pity rate up high and you don't want to squander it.  So you don't pull anything good and it just makes you want to pull more. 

 

Still no Vantage or Deathblow inherits.   Disgusting.
