I had always thought you needed a bonus unit like in Arena for Allegiance Battles until I replaced L!Julia with my newly built Draug (+6!) today. L!Julis is nice but I can score higher now thanks to this thing that I should have known a long time ago!
Saw the Null Disrupt Banner and decided to throw some orbs at it. Managed to get Hilda and A!MCorrin out of it, the former of which I wanted and the second I could use on my Shapeshifter team, so I'm very happy with that.
Now it's just the waiting game until the Farfetched banner, if Jill is on it I'm definitely going all in.
After many previous attempts and stamina, I finally finished the Chapters 9 - 10 & 11 - 12 Book II Chain Challenges! In addition to Brave Bow Nina + dancers, Nagi was great at tanking the colorless units.
Actually, the latter was especially helpful in the Chain Challenges with F!Tiki and Fallen Corrin. The former especially is on a dumb tile to bolster her defenses higher in one of the maps.
Just kidding about being less stingy with my orbs I guess. I am probably saving my orbs for those Mist and Mia banners, the latter is more enticing since Lute just got a refine which means Mia should be getting one soon. I actually do want to +10 Mist but that banner happens in about a month so it'll depend on how Farfetched banner turns out this year. Considering Jill will probably take me around 1500 orbs I definitely won't be able to +10 both Mist and Mia though so maybe I will just go for +5 on both of them and call it a day, and just hope they eventually repeat these banners again after this. I guess this all depends on how lucky I am next month though.
And just like that any plan I had to +10 Mist is out the window now. I've wanted a pair-up legendary for awhile and I'm not about to pass up a chance with Leif and Alm here, so I guess Mist will have to settle for +5 at best. I don't care that Leif's special gives him gravity as a penalty for that Galeforce though, any form of Galeforce on a Brave Bow cavalry is super not okay.
Of course, here I am about to roll in hopes of getting him or Alm so what do I know.
Legendary Ryoma again? Really wish they'd stop putting him in the Red Pool. He's easily the least valuable Legendary IMO; he's average at best as a unit, and has a remarkably bad base kit so he's pretty underwhelming for fodder. Any Legendary Red Pool is instantly made worse with him in it, IMO.
Colorless is definitely the best place to invest orbs, Leif, Alm, and Fallen Tiki are all great. I'm not super attached to Leif so I don't really care about him, but I wouldn't say no to him and I'd love Alm and Tiki merges.
I was very confused about Leif's weird special until I remembered oh, right, ranged units dont normally get galeforce
his bow having a player specific effeect is also pretty interesting, having an effect that benefits you but you dont have to worry about against CPUs.
I wonder if we'll see the inverse of that. A Defense Mythic having a computer-exclusive skill to worry about seems about right.
L!Leif! He's neutral and thus nice.
A second L!Lucina with HP+/Atk-. She was merged into my Spd+/Atk- to get rid of that bane and make her muuuuuch better.
A second L!Azura with HP+/Atk- (ugh, creepy). Either she or the other one I have are getting merged, or they'll remain separate for AR stuff.
A S!Palla with Def+/Spd-. Shame about the speed, but then again, her base is just 34 on that.
I also got my first Mercedes, but she's Spd+/Atk-. Oh well.
Overall, nice results. I'll keep pulling since I lack all of the reds and I wish to fix my L!Alm's nasty Atk- flaw.
I'm noticing a trend here, this is the third time I've set out to roll on a legendary banner with a budget of no more than 300 orbs and get what I want in less than 20. This time I got a +Atk -Spd Alm on my free roll so I guess this isn't setting back future plans at all. I have no interest in fixing that bane though since base kit Alm is still hitting 46 Speed unbuffed when initiating and he's always going to be paired up for Allegiance Battles anyway. Now the wait continues, crossing 2300 orbs soon.
70 orbs got me two Mercies, and Leif with the five orbs I had left. nice way to cap that off, even if -HP +Def isn't exactly ideal.
We should be getting new update info by Thursday, a week before the new banner. We shouldn't be getting a FEH Channel since we got one just this month, but maybe there will be something big to announce to explain the server downtime a few days back.
Interesting that F!Kana is getting a refine already despite being introduced mid-way into Book II. I get we had Lute last month for a Gen II refine but I didn’t expect us to get to units like F!Kana until next year.
Athena, Subaki, and Gordin are also getting refines. Hopefully the former gets something to separate herself from Mia.
Kana-F is shocking to me just because she's a Book 2 unit. She's fairly self suffieicent and not that outdated even if she didn't have a prf weapon. It's not like teh Book 1 units who even in their later days were starting to fall behind and needed that extra oomph.
