Strange that they didn't make a banner for Naruto and his sister, but it's not like we needed more sword lords clogging up red pulls.

Also apparently the FE: Warriors maps do not half XP or SP after you've cleared them once, so...I guess if you have a lot of SP to grind this is a nice chance (of course Tempest is coming soon and then we'll all be dumping stamina into that).

Alternatively they could always slap a random GBA/GCN era S-rank Lance like Maltet, Rex Hasta, Vidofnir or Wishblade onto a random knight/general like Bors, Barthe, Douglas, Murdock, Oswin, Wallace, Gilliam, Gatrie or Tauroneo (although, given the game's track record thus far, only Douglas, Murdock, Wallace or Tauroneo have even a chance since the rest will be stuck with Silvers/Slayers/Braves at best, and that's only if they don't get turned into Sword or Axe users first).

I think it'll be years before we see C-level fan popularity characters like Bors or Wallace make it in (but then again they seem to try to include at least one of them per banner so they won't have to make banners of only unpopular characters down the line). Rex Hasta would probably be held by Darin (who is more like an F-list character) given Lloyd, and we all know the real wielder of Maltet is Miledy after she gets done soloing the second half of the game.

You can't get pineapples from blue orbs, sadly.

Not that I wouldn't go through colourless hell and back for him if he were actually in focus, but... IS bleeped up and didn't create a Warriors banner starring Hinoka, Takumi and green filler best avoided.

I've been trying to get Ninian, but I keep getting the same characters over and over. Just from this banner alone I've gotten three blue Corrins and two Subakis. That's just... not how odds are supposed to work. What makes it even worse is that the other characters were Est and Nowi. So that's four dragons and three flyers. How about a mage instead? Or, I dunno, the unit I actually want.

If FEH is looking for Prf sporting Lance Knights, there's always Emperor Hardin (hell BK was basically swiping his shtick with his early game "You're not ready for this." appearance).

Alternatively they could always slap a random GBA/GCN era S-rank Lance like Maltet, Rex Hasta, Vidofnir or Wishblade onto a random knight/general like Bors, Barthe, Douglas, Murdock, Oswin, Wallace, Gilliam, Gatrie or Tauroneo (although, given the game's track record thus far, only Douglas, Murdock, Wallace or Tauroneo have even a chance since the rest will be stuck with Silvers/Slayers/Braves at best, and that's only if they don't get turned into Sword or Axe users first).

Unfortunately, one of the best PC Lance Armors available was Sheena who they stuck a Killer Axe on instead (as Sheena was the only way to use Gradivus during the final chapters due to them being entirely indoors).

Anna was also more or less confirmed as well with this.



If the 25 character rumor is true (and they really aren't counting F!Robin and M!Corrin), then all that remains is Young Tiki, Caeda, Navarre and one other PC (if the 25 unit roster is true but they are also counting F!Robin and M!Corrin, then Navarre was probably NPCing it up in the background or something since the trailer didn't necessarily confirm his playability, only his presence).

I usually send Reinhardt in alone for my first run of Arena Assault every day. If I roll a Green on Beginner, I just take the loss. I might start using items though since them encouraging us to do at least one run every day has led to me having a massive stockpile of them

And yeah, for me a perfect run with my score-setting team (Zephiel, Effie +1, Reinhardt +2, BIke) could take like a straight hour or some shit of just playing Arena Assault. I guess I could just take a pittance of Sacred Coins but you just know it'll be used for something super important like leveling up Sacred Seals or something.

Also if my normal Arena score is any indication, +1-ing Effie probably won't do shit for my Arena Assault ranking. I have enough extra Effies and feathers to feed her up to like, +4, but aside from me not being able to get her an optimum set anytime soon (she pretty much needs Distant Counter) that's still no guarantee she'll be good enough to push my team up the threshold and there's always the chance she'll get Zephiel'd by some new unit down the line. Though to be fair, that last point doesn't seem too big a concern since I don't recall any ridiculously broken Lance Armor Knights with legendary weapons in the franchise history.

Incidentally the amount of investment needed to merge a perfect 5* makes me believe that it's very unlikely they'll ever introduce 6* units or something to the game. It would probably piss off everyone, including whales, if you had to upgrade that 5*+10 you spent thousands of dollars pulling for.

Also Sophia's actually decent-ish skill fodder IMO. You can use her to give Fortify Res 2 before feeding a Jagen to a horse so you can also get Fury 2 while you're at it, and Dragon Fang's a really good slow-charge special (Or you can prep a unit for getting Draconic Aura).

Also also FE Warriors maps are out, and appropriately enough they're maps with massive amounts of mooks being thrown at you so staffbots can be useful. This is just me but I've never enjoyed Musou games that much so reminding me why that is can be a nice laugh, but probably not a very good marketing tactic.

Despite the two games having very different styles/tones, I wonder if Super Robot Wars is part of the reason they're not going for another SRPG Front Mission. I imagine they compete at least to some extent and SRW dominates that niche with the power of multiple IPs behind it, and SRW alone already kinda burns me out on the whole "SRPG with big robots" thing.

So apparently this is a thing.  A Little Witch Academia game that actually looks decent that combined adventure elements with...Dragon's Crown-style brawling.

No, seriously.  The combat is very reminiscent of Dragon's Crown.  And I know Dragon's Crown didn't invent that style but it's about the only contemporary example since it's a style of gameplay that has largely died out.

Well, there was Code of Princess, but that game was awful.

Honestly I'm sure I'll get some shit for this, but I thought Dragon's Crown was really "meh" as well, amazing art aside. Anytime I was playing it I was thinking I'd rather play Guardian Heroes instead.

Celica was just announced for Fire Emblem Warriors. That rumour was right after all.
