I keep running to teams with two reds, so hey, it might work. Plus, I'm pretty sure Reinhardt with the right skills is pretty much outside of the weapon triangle while on the offensive.
I think he needs Death Blow 3 and maybe a +Atk nature to (mostly) ignore the weapon triangle. I'm pretty sure Julia still destroys him in 1v1, but that is because she is a Res tank with weapon triangle advantage. So basically she is designed to wreck him.

I was so confused the first time I heard the song that plays with the Catherine costumes. I'd completed the game, yet never heard that song. After looking up where it came from, my second thought was that it most definitely makes a better battle tune than a tower climbing one... and it makes a pretty freaking good tower climbing one.

Persona 5 is most definitely a fantastic game! Even having played P4:Golden, SMTIV, SMTIV:Apocalypse, and both Cold Steel games for the first time within the past year, each of which have provided me with some of the best JRPG experiences I've had in years, P5 easily stands out above them all. Atlus did a fantastic job, and I absolutely do not regret spending the extra for the Take Your Heart edition. Nor do I regret my desire to buy all of the costumes just to support them more.

While I absolutely understand the fear that it could go to their head, resulting in scummy DLC practices, I'd say there are two major differences. First, they actually made an extremely solid, polished, and complete game that absolutely stands on its own without any kind of added content. Second, it's all purely cosmetic, and doesn't block any important story elements behind a paywall. I totally understand the disappointment of communities (particularly of those like Tales) who feel disappointed that neat bonuses like costumes are now something you pay for, but having seen games where content was removed from the game to be sold back as DLC, or significant plot elements were only explained in DLC, I'm all for cosmetics only.

Not that I'm against content DLC if done well - Artorias of the Abyss was fantastic! In fact, if Atlus DOES decide on an FES/Golden enhancement to P5, I hope they release it (or at least, have the option of obtaining it as) DLC. While I don't mind paying for the TYH edition and costumes, I'd feel a little salty if all of that went to waste because they announced a new model later this year.

Blue 1: 3-star Subaki - Pretty sure this is my first pegasus knights, though I have plenty of dragon riders so whatevs.

Subaki is actually a really helpful unit in those tricky GHBs and various other challenges. Put him across from a red units and he turns into a wall. A wall that kills.



Bah, if we are playing my unit can beat yours, I'm pretty sure my Julia takes 0 damage from most Lindes...so yeah. :p

Julias are my worst enemy. They do 60+ damage to Nowis, and while I'm generally totally okay with doing 60+ damage to Nowis, I'd rather not have it happen to mine.

As for defense, Reinhardt is supposed to be really good on defense when paired with a dancer. Basically, you just need to kill one unit and a lot of people will just surrender. I'm not sure about going all blue. On one hand, it will wreck any red heavy team. On the other hand, I'm not actually sure that red heavy teams are still the meta. Probably will get some wins though, and that is really all you need. Which reminds me..*checks arena defenses* Looks like I might need to add Reinhardt to my defense team because I am now two weeks without a defense win. >.>

If not, I can just switch back to my usual team of Nowi, Alphonse/Alm, Reinhardt and Lucius, and hope they land on maps with chokepoints. That usually brings in a few wins and since just one good one is enough to get those 500 feathers...

Used my L40 Linde for the first time in the arena today. Turns out she can one-shot the occassional Ike.

BTW I'm wondering if I should change my defence team to something with all my good magic blue units. Plus a back-up dancer. Reinhardt and Linde should be able to overwhelm most units, and Nowi with Vantage is a big pain in the ass to deal with... It would also be a nice 'Screw you!' to the people who got all sorts of good reds and couldn't decide between Ryoma and Ike and ended up bringing both.

Okay, I have 60+ orbs and a few minutes before I have to leave for work. Time to see if I can get anything good from this event for this game that I don't actually play other than to get login orbs to use for live Gacha pulls in this thread. (Go, go Gadget Peer Pressure!)

And here we go:

3 Red, one Blue and Green

Red 1:  4-star Draug - I might already have him? Maybe it was only 3-stars. I don't know, I don't really pay enough attention to my party to remember.

Green 1: 3-star Barst - 'I used to be a mercenary, now I'm just a regular woodcutter... that you just summoned to be a mercenary."

Blue 1: 3-star Subaki - Pretty sure this is my first pegasus knights, though I have plenty of dragon riders so whatevs.

Red 2: 3-star Olivia - Already have a 4-star so bleh.

Red 3: 3-star Raigh - Seriously, what is with all the non-sequitur in character introductions?

======================
Well, that was crap. Got enough time for one more:

Fuckin hell, 4 red one neutral

Red 1: 4-star Stahl - never has green been less flattering on a person.

Red 2: 4-star Laslow - suave.

Neutral: 4-star Matthew - Christ this is getting annoying.

Red 3: 3-star Stahl - OH FUCK OFF

Red 4: 3-star Tiki - Love my 4-star, but.. .uh... I already have a 4-star...

God this is not boding well for how today is gonna be.

I think I'll just side with Linde. That's what the RNG gods are telling me to do anyway.

Fine then, I'm just going to take my +Spd/-Res Ike and go cry in the corner. *sniffle* :p

My apologies, then. Tone is always hard to interpret via text. :) Persona 5 is amaaaazing, though. I'm trying to decide which DLC pack I want to buy for my second playthrough...probably the Catherine one, once it's out!

Decided to finally change my avatar. I've had the image for a while, but I have been dragging my feet on changing it because I did like my old avatar and out of spite for the last time you all made fun of my old avatar (which was a long time ago at this point). And I will change it back if you all make fun of my old avatar again. *glares*

My new avatar is an image of me made for a Kickstarter game I backed a few years ago. So yeah behold my beautiful(?) mug as I hold a flaming sword and form armor of rock on my left hand.

Nope no 6th ranger yet. In this case my 6th ranger (if one does indeed show up) will be a non-RPGFan addition because he/she is not part of the vanilla-cast (forgive me as it is the only way I can make it "make sense" in my mind). To those ends I apologize as I do recall you petitioning for the spot. As consolation I will give you complete creative control over a character addition to my "Darkest Dungeon" play-through when I pick that up someday.... Truth be told, just the mere fact that you cared enough to pay attention to being part of my game pretty much makes you a shoe-in for a character spot in every game I play from now on, same as Arvis. Consider yourself a perma-character in KRPG's, Rana!

NOTE: KRPG = Klyde RPG (see what I did there?)

Speaking of, I can't help but be curious now, what role/job/class (or even gender if you fancy a switcheroo) do you typically see yourself cast as for future reference?
Surprised that there is no 6th ranger yet in season 3, that is a fairly common trope in sentai shows that usually doesn't get dragged out for too long.

Boo on not being the sixth ranger, hurray on securing a permanent spot!

My preferred setup (when possible) is a magic swordsman (but not a paladin because fuck divine magic) with preference for being just a swordsman when magic swordsman is not available because longswords are the best medieval weapon ever. I prefer light armor to heavy, so the Japanese archetype of the kensei works, but I'm not as big of a fan of katannas as longswords.

Chroma Squad : Aeolus e-mailed me, addressed me as "The Person Playing the Game" and demanded a raise since he is playing the lead. Happenings aside, I will say by the end of Season 3 the gameplay is now becoming somewhat engrossing by way of it's challenge. I have funny feeling this game is gonna get all sorts of hard later on.

Back to the naming characters after RPGFanners are we?

If I weren't so boring (and if I had any faith that they were going to be relevant later on in the game), I'd be naming my BotW Horses after you guys. As it is, I'm just now making it to Hidden Leaf Kakariko Village.

Actually this is still my play through from back in the fall, henceforth you are still the white ranger lead and no roles have switched. In truth I have a few different "pools" of people I like to pick from when making characters but no better than the RPGFan crew for my SRPGs.

You might have posted about it already and I missed it, but did you ever get a sixth ranger?
