    Reddit likes to take things to a whole new level. It's quite fascinating.

    I completely forgot about him, and even after being reminded don't really remember much of anything. Did he have anything going for him other than being hot guy enemy swordsman?

    He was one of the honorable Black Fangs. Only killed people who are evil (as far as he knows).

    Eliwood's googly eyes. Sophia the giraffe. Babyhands's...baby hands.

    They're not terrible overall, but certain aspects are just so glaringly obvious that it jumps out at you.

    The Fire Emblem Heroes subreddit isn't bad. You just have to wade through all the shitposts and fan art, haha. You'll find lots of helpful tricks and tips to play the game there too. Can't recommend it enough.

    Anyway, it looks like a bad rendition of Lloyd to me as well.

    I mean...look how he cool he looks in Cipher. Well, most everyone's art looks good in Cipher though. Versus...whatever this is from Heroes. Give the man some teeth and eyes that aren't the same color as his skin, haha! Also...why so many buckles? And...rigormortis has set in on his hand I guess? It looks like he should be holding something but forgot.

    Actually you're right. The FEH subreddit is actually really nice. I love the art they draw.

    Bring two blade tomes and two dancers :V The new seals make it slightly easier to position for some extra buffs as well.

    I've been levelling Xander, since red is my weakest colour (I have Marth, who's good but not great). He is surprisingly really quite good!

    He has roughly the same stats as Hector (slightly worse, but very much comparable), and his distant counter skill is on his weapon, meaning he can equip Fury.

    The only problem is I seem to have used up all my Lon'qus, so can't give him vantage.

  • SpoitSpoit *twitch twitch* Registered User regular
    Quick return is better, since it means you can almost always counter kill at least one person. Which will probably get you at least one surrender (because of perfect runs) over the course of the arena season

    I've been really happy with Quick Riposte on Xander. Admittedly the reason I defaulted to it was because I also don't have any Lon'qus available, but I'm glad I went that way now.

    But I don't really care about PVP defence, I'd rather something that works well in offence. And Fury means that he's always going to lose some health, which makes Quick Riposte less useful, as that needs his health to stay high. Vantage works well with Fury, because that needs his health to be low.

    What are some good skills to inherit on Ike? His base set seems already quite good and is so unique that I really don't know if I should replace it with anything.

    Mine is +SPD/-RES, and I run him with Ragnell/Reposition/Aether/Heavy Blade/Quick Riposte/Threaten ATK, plus the ATK seal.

    He's not quite strong enough to oneshot things and he's not quite fast enough to double anyone important. However, he's also not slow enough to get doubled too often and he's strong enough to Quick Riposte most ranged to death, with Aether going off on the next turn to return him to QR range.

    I've found that I have slightly more issues using him to take out Hector (whereas my Lucina ORKOs most variants), but he's bulkier and tends to be able to stay in combat without having to jump in and out like Lucina (who runs with Falchion/Fury/Renewal).

    Quick Riposte is better than Vantage. You'll note that an uninherited Hector is top tier with Distant Counter and QR2 only. It is very rare that you will have a melee unit be first to initiate, and being able to ensure the follow up when you are attacked is vital. It also negates Wary Fighter and possibly Breaker skills if you have the speed advantage.

    Like, I have QR2 on Ryoma, Nowi, Julia, Takumi and Xander (all but Takumi also have Fury), routinely get flawless runs and am in T17. I'd have put it on Ike too, but Swordbreaker was helpful due to Nowi not being a dead cert Falchion counter.

    E: That's not to say Vantage is bad. It's especially good when you can one-hit a likely attacker, so on units like Kagero and Bonfire Hector. Xander can run Bonfire, it's just that QR and Moonbow works for any encounter where you aren't ORKO'd.

    20 orbs + assorted junk today, banner for Ninian, Hinoka, Klein and Raven, Lloyd GHB seems pretty fuckin' easy.

    Pulled for Hinoka to try Flier Emblem, got Jagen for Horse Emblem. I'll take it. Not sure who it should go on though; not Ursula or Cecilia because they need the boost for their Blade tomes, and not Xander because that'd leave (hypothetical, future) Reinhardt/Olwen stuck carrying Hone and not benefitting and that's no good. Guess I'll have to leave it on Jagen for now? Or pass it to a disposable Eliwood, who can later pass it on in turn?

    Just eat Jagen's buff. He's not that great. Generally you want defense buffs on the attackers, and the attack buffs on the tanks. But Rein is the only one with....goad? So I guess he's stuck buffing attack. Put it on Olwen, or better yet, a blade-inherited cecillia

    Kinda want Raven because he's a BA but don't see how he'd be much better than Hector or Nino.

    Will prob pull on Echoes banner, some neat skills there.

    Edit: Got Celica, however I already have Sanaki and 4* Tharja, so I'm pretty tempted to inherit Distant Defense somewhere.

    Edit 2: Hector and Lukas may just be up for crimes against humanity after that GHB.

    That was the easiest GHB so far I think. Beat it in 2 tries and the first was just due to a misclick.

    Moved robin up to the spot next to the mountain to bait the horse archer and kill him. Then backed everyone off and had ike (though any decent red sword would work) bait down the flying axe. Then since a drag back was kind of locking the others in place a bit I used that time to heal up from those 2 attacks.

    Moved ephraim (though ideally it should have been a green melee) up to tank the hit from the horse lance and backed off to bait down Lloyd and the mage. Lloyd died easily and then I just had to wait for the mage to get close enough to kill

    I used the 20 orb bonus to try for Hinoka and failed miserably.

    I did get a 5* +ATK/-SPD Effie, though! For once my tendency to get -SPD IVs came in handy.

    That armor emblem mission may actually be doable for once!

    Not sure i have the roster for this GHB, but Lloyd looks terrible so nothing lost, really. None of my greens are sturdy at all.

    Edit: Managed to beat it, but it's clear i really need better green units.

    I did the same, except was hoping more for a Klein as I have jack squat in the relm of archers/ninjas. Started with a 4* Lissa and a 4* Catria. Ended up with a 5* Azura. Well.....i guess I'll take that as a win :-p

    Bleh, that horse archer is a dick. I need to finish my horse emblem team. Eldigan or Xander remains the question. Titania and Olwen cover the other options cleanly but...

    In the meantime? I'm just going ahead with triangle adept M robin, aka fuck all reds and colorless. -HP + Res.

    I agree it only required me two attempts with team buff mage to clear the map. Baited the archer with tharja and everything fell into place after that.

    I so wish the archer didnt have swordbreaker so I could just use Ike. Or do I need to just give him QR2?

    I am lucky to have a male Robin for Takumi. He murders him so bad I just laugh and eagerly pick them in arenas now. Like, it's literally a free kill.

    Side note, I did promote Kagero. I forgot she had a super nice even stronger weapon at 5*. I did some massive grinding and she is back up to 37 already (along with my two 5* archers Rebecca and Maye. It's a weird all colorless team except for Olivia :P)
