    Verdant Wind chapter 15
    Ashe was there; and then Leonie was there; and then Ashe wasn't there anymore.

    I wondered if there would be some comment on it afterwards, like Dorothea lamenting that we killed a friend in Crimson Flower, but nobody said anything back at the monastery

    I'm not sure most of them could remember who Ashe was

    Could Byleth have talked him down?

    Yes.

    I think in that scenario:
    Byleth has to "finish off" Ashe and then it gives you a Kill or Forgive prompt

    Jill and Mia in top 20 but no Largo or Giffca. Life sucks.

    it occurs to me that I almost never use Combat Arts, unless it's Curved Shot to get a little extra range
    there are times where the battle preview will show a Combat Art that should be suited to this enemy doing way less damage than just a regular attack

    That doesn't seem right, does it

    They’re more used in Maddening where you need to one-shot finish or prevent a counter attack

    Or with the Lord weapons, mostly Edel’s...

  • GundiGundi Serious Bismuth Registered User regular
    Combat arts are an absolute necessity on Maddening. You will lose without them. On lower difficulties you never have to use them, but a bunch are still useful.

    My favorite by far is encloser because it locks enemy movement.

    It depends on the weapon you're using, whether or not you'll double, and a few other factors

    In general don't worry about it too much and do whatever seems most useful to you in the moment

    I mostly used the ones that gave more Crit chance so that Bernie and Petra would just demolish everyone.

    Rhea is far from the only villain. While she was experimenting with crest stones, so were TWSITD. Fodlan is caught in the middle of this fucked up thing going back ages, and Claude is the one who does the most good, wiping out TWISTD and putting Byleth in charge instead of Rhea, and then working on World Peace and Harmony.

    Edel’s story needs more chapters of her turning her axe on her uncle. I didn’t like that it ended with killing Dimitri and Rhea and then a /shrug and mention that she ends TWSITD too- I want to play that part, and not just a paralogue!

    I tend to think the same.
    Sothis's people were also basically colonizers, depending on how you read the history, and the Agarthans pushing back against them over time might make sense.

    Crimson Flower really got short-changed in general. It's most of a year later and it's still silly that they thought they shouldn't give an equally sized campaign to what would end up being the most popular path headed by the most popular character.

    ...also Claude actually dreams of grown-up, for-real empire. Which adds a lot of depth to his character, but it makes it interesting that so many people think of him as some kind of peacemaker
    Forming an empire does make peace, in the same way that killing a person grants the peace of the grave.

    A Sniper with a Killer Bow+ using Hunter's Volley basically guarantees a critical hit.

    I know she’s an afterthought but my last Church run I used Shamir and she never had lower than a 89% crit chance before her personal kicked in for me, and never once didn’t crit in like 340 battles I used her for that run

    She and Catherine ended up together and it was adorbs

  • LordSolarMachariusLordSolarMacharius Red wine with fish Registered User regular
    I also had a Shamir/Catherine end in one run, and it felt... weird to me.

    But Catherine is my least liked person in the game. ('Shame too, with such a great design.)

  • GundiGundi Serious Bismuth Registered User regular
    Catherine is a good character, but kind of a messed up person. (don't be a zealot, lady!)

    Catherine is very well-written, and some of the times she reflects on her relationship with Rhea and what it's made of her? Good shit

    But also, this is absolutely Catherine's theme song:

    Verdant Wind, Battle of Gronder Field
    Bernadetta was my first kill of a student I had cared about from a previous run

    It... was hard, y'all

    I went to lengths to avoid killing her in that mission, including warping Byleth (who I had made a Fortress Knight for something different in my third run) over to protect her when Sylvain showed up. Byleth's defence was too high for her to meaningfully hurt, so they just hung out for the last few turns.

    The other student I managed to not kill was Linhardt in my Azure Moon run. But he was easier to skirt, and never moved to attack anyone.

    I don't play Heroes anymore, but I found the results from this year's choose your legends hilarious.
    1. Edelgard 74,617
    2. Lysithea 42,462
    3. Bernadetta 37,400

    1. Dimitri 69,448
    2. Claude 59,751
    3. Marth 44,107

    Marth gets 3rd for the 3rd year in a row, and thus will still not be getting a new alternate.

    Everyday we stray further from God's light

    In the latter half of the game, enemy units in advanced classes start having stat distributions that are for real

    Swordmasters and Assassins and many fliers are going to be really fast, armored units will have super high defense, warriors and warmasters will have sky-high attack and decent speed, etc.

    Edit: wait you're replaying the game, sorry, I forgot, didn't mean to be condescending

    The deer are pretty slow as a class I guess, outside of Leonie?

    If Lysithea didn't have a support with Edelgard she would have destroyed her because nothing stops Lysithea

    Oh no you're absolutely fine!

    And yeah I didn't recall encountering this on the Eagles run so that could definitely be the case. Leonie was still cleaning house in most of those battles, and if she wasn't the MVP it was usually Lysithea

    In the fight for Derdriu one of the wyvern assholes attacked Hubert and got both of his two attacks before Hubert could do his one. That annoyed me since it's always been about taking turns, outside of fist weapons which get 4 total so take two attacks before the opponent.

    I reloaded and decided to just never let them attack at all anymore. Hang back just far enough to make them move forward then obliterate them in one attack.

    Also now Hilda is dead.

    Put my 3H cart in my Switch to get ready for Shadowed Cinders, figured I might as well start a NG+ Golden Deer playthrough.

    I skipped through a lot of cutscenes. Figure it'll be good practice for Persona 5 Royal.

    Hmm, this very first cutscene divulges a pretty neat detail!
    Alois mentioned the fire, presumably the one Jeralt started as cover to sneak out, was 21 years prior to the game's start, which means Byleth's canonically 21 years old.

    also holy shit they're all 25-27 while you're only 20 on Hard and their Crests are terrifying!

    Hoo boy, I had to use all the Divine Pulses to eek out a victory in that very first fight on Hard/Classic.
    All these new Crests are super good, but very spooky to fight. And Yuri's class and setup makes him such a little shit.
