    Camilla is younger than Xander though IIRC, so if she counts so does he.

    I think the oldest two ladies are Reina and Orochi? Maybe Effie as well.

  • DaypigeonDaypigeon regular Registered User regular
    Reina and Orochi are prrrrrobably the oldest, since they're Mikoto's retainers?

    it's hard to say though, considering the character artist just...Cherche couldn't have been that much younger than Gregor based on her supports, and yet

    Old women don't exist except for the ones that are stuck in a perpetually young body

    So the answer in this case is: Nyx

    Well...even if we talking "old" we talking late 20s/30s at best...

    Which really isn't old at all.

    It'd be fun if the player character was older--or heck, if your unit was the Jeigan. I doubt they'd ever go that route, but an experienced protagonist character with several war campaigns under their belt would sure be an interesting angle

    That was technically Ike in Radiant dawn. He wasn't exactly old but everyone is busy pointing out that he's a super experienced fighter in charge of a group of veteran mercs.
    IIRC he even had the great bases horrible growths thing going on.
    Though i suppose bonus exp trivialized the whole bad growth issue.

    Reina's probably somewhere in her forties, and good looking for her age. Not ancient or anything, but definitely hot for teacher at minimum. She's got a face with a few more lines, it's just the scar distracts from the eyes.

    Meanwhile, Flavia's old enough to be Chrom's mother (So, 40ish going by the Basilio support), and looks... about the same age as the rest of the army. I guess the old saying is right about things that don't crack.

    (Cherche's age is weird. Some supports give hard numbers, but they contradict everything else about her attitude and the way people treat her, which places her somewhere in her late 20s to mid thirties. Early concept art looks a little more aged, for whatever that's worth.)

    sigurd is a jeigan and a lord. but he's not really a jeigan since you need him to get through the first generation

    Well, got a couple of consecutive days off work and managed to finish off the rest of Conquest. Thoughts:
    First off, the last couple of chapters were way easier than I was expecting. I had some real trouble with the one where you fight Hans and Iago (all my durable units were either armored, beasts, or both except for Arthur, who would almost certainly have gotten crit by one of the berserkers. On the other hand, I got through the final battle on my first try. I think I was probably a bit overleveled? About half my main team was level 20. Even the penultimate chapter I only had to restart once because I didn't realize that Counter Magic would reflect the damage from a Flame Shuriken.

    It was kind of weird that Xander didn't seem to care about his wife mysteriously disappearing after the final battle. It was jarring enough that I don't think I can use that pairing again, even if I thought it was pretty good otherwise. Aside from that, the story seemed fine? Maybe I had just lowered my expectations from so many people here complaining about it, but it didn't seem worse than typical JRPG fare. It did feel good to punch Takumi's face in!

    Definitely glad I went with Knight for Corrin's second class. Great Knights are really useful and having an extra tank with guaranteed weapon triangle advantage was fantastic. I suspect I'll probably end up back at Great Knight in Revelations, it was so good.

    I'm glad that I beat it on Classic, even if it made me very frustrated, but I don't think I'll be doing that again. I'm actually a little concerned about replayability, considering the amount of content. I played through Awakening probably 4-5 times, but there's no way I'll be able to do that with Fates.

    Anyway, I think I'm going to skip the DLC and move on to Birthright. I'll probably save DLC for Revelations, unless I feel like coming back to this save file later.

    My big regret about Conquest 26 is...
    That I failed to get Kaze (or any Ninja, but Kaze was the one I had available) up to A rank in shurikens so I could actually use the Spy's Shuriken to heckle Iago. As it stood, I just had to plinkshot him to death with Forrest, who was the only person in my army I could trust to take a crit from him and not die.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    i was planning on benching most of the Hoshido royals this go around but in lieu of Elise, Sakura's been levelling well and pulling her weight. And of course the first Nohr royal to show up is the one i'm least interested in/also a prepromote

    bah. bah

    I can understand not caring for Camilla's personality and design, but as a unit, she's maybe the best in the game. Good bases, good personal skill, good class, great growths. She's even got adjusted XP gains to counter the prepromote thing. Give her a Prf weapon, and she'd make everyone else obsolete.

    Well worth using.

    Once I've wrapped up Conquest, I'm probably gonna take a breather before I start up Revelations. I'm getting a bit of Fire Emblem fatigue.

    Fire Emblem will actually be saving me money. If I hadn't purchased it I'd almost definitely have gotten XCOM 2 when it came out, but there's enough game here for me to either 1) get tired of TBS games or 2) spend long enough playing FE that when I can get XCOM 2 it'll be on Steam Sale.

    Congrats on finishing Conquest, Terrendos!

    @chiasaur11 so you don't reclass Camilla? I feel like I'm possibly using her wrongly since she's far from being my most useful unit.

    I started a new Birthright campaign because I'm a terrible human being.

    I didn't, but I hear she's even better in Wyvern Lord. Still, she was pretty useful throughout the game, and her daughter was incredibly effective. Meh defense, but everything I pointed her at tended to explode.

    Take her to 5 for savage blow and then switch her out. Wyvern rider has much better growths in all the standard stats, at the cost of slightly less magic and I think resistance? Which is frankly non-essential. You have plenty of other better magic users (Malig knight camillas magic never takes off anyway) and I never found enemy mages difficult to handle in the first place.

    She's still a good unit as malig knight though. It's obnoxious that her whole adjusted exp gain thing isnt explained anywhere. She was one of those units I put on the bench for quite a while because "well she's promoted already gotta get that exp to somewhere it wont be wasted." but I definitely could have just used her more to make certain maps easier without feeling like i was wasting anything... Oh well.

  • JarsJars regular Registered User regular
    wyvern lord drops her resist, but she still has 45% growth. in return she gets 10% more hp and defense, and better in all offensive stats.

    Well,
    Even the Hoshidan royals don't recognize the Nohr royals in the beginning of the game, so how well known are their faces, really? Before the age of photographs, how widely circulated would royal portraits be? Or accurate?

    Chapter 6's decision is never not going to make me feel awful. Also Ryoma really is a dick to Corrin over the whole chapter even if you choose Hoshido. Jerk.

    I only just learned that Nohr in the Japanese version is called my daughter's name which is pretty cool and clearly more evidence that Corrin does belong in Nohr if I have to choose.

    Birthright has been okay but I just auto-battled chapter 20 on Lunatic in a no-grind run.

    Disappointed at that. Chapter 18 was much the same. It has been fun playing around with heart seals and building this team but what is the point if it these missions seem to be falling behind the difficulty curve...?

    I was feeling that too, but the missions get a bit tougher once you hit around 20 or so.

    The gimmicks wear thin, and they keep giving you some truly useless members (Seriously why do you join 20 levels below the other guy who joins this chapter uuuugh)
    Plus I can only deploy 12 units of my 70 man crew? Oh until the last 2 chapters where I can suddenly deploy 16, but because ive been stuck at 12 for the last 8 chapters anyone I might want to throw in is criminally underleveled so whoops, welcome to being my cannon fodder and/or staffbots.

    I still had fun with it all said and done but I have so many gripes. So so many.
