    Nothing wrong with merging. AA is a thing and having better dancers will only help you.

    Don't forget, eventually, the seasonal will rerun on a legendary banner down the line so if you get lucky then...

    2.1 out tomorrow, first, I'm all about that Sanaki buff. Not because I think she's particularly great, just always loved her chibi sprite. Just adorable :3 Her new tome looks pretty good though.

    Of the three new heroes, I'm not bothering with TBK 2.0. Micaiah is interesting as a horse (and armour) emblem counter. She'd be fun to put on my defence team and utterly screw people in arena too I guess (especially with my Cancer Elise), but I think i'd rather roll for Sothe (even though he may get Soliel'd)? That weapon is bonkers, his stats are great and his skills are top notch too. My only dagger unit is Kagero, could do with another.

    QR now a seal. My mind immediately went to my BK which i constantly have switching between Wrath and QR3.

    I sure there's better options though. If you can somehow guarantee getting 70-75% hp every time vantage is obviously good, but too finicky.

    FYI for those of you on the border

    It looks like the threshold to go into T20 will be somewhere around 4890 to be safe. To stay in T20, the safe point will probably be around 5040.

    If you're not at those scores yet, I suggest you get closer to them, just to be on the safe side. Next week should be better since it is no longer water season.

    Myyrh just seems like a straight power creep on Fae... So much so that if I had any DC fodder, I'd feed her Steady Breath onto a Tiki right now to run Ninian, Nowi, Myyrh and Tiki DEmblem team.

    It's not as simple as lolpowercreep tbf. Myyrh can't run SB and needs Iotes Shield seal, but she can't be doubled by anyone relevant and has really bonkers stats...

    That'll be the plan eventually I think. I'll be trying to get 2 Myyrhs (one for Hone Dragons on Tiki/Nowi) and hoping one is spd bane.

    So far no Myrrh for me, sniping for green, but got pity broken by Minerva and Dorcas. Which is all kinds of good as I didn't have either of those, but it's the principle of things. Also finally got another Cherche, so I could theoretically finish my first +10, but can't decide, if I want to go with my current +Atk/-Spd or wait for something better and what that better would be in the first place...

    Myyrh has a higher BST than fae to be sure, but because of her prf weapon she can't easily run the Vantage+DC combo that makes so many dragons so strong, especially with the QR3 seal. I think they both have their place on dragon emblem teams, though Hone Dragons is amazing and I want 10 of it.

    Interestingly, in pulling for Myyrh my first pity breaker was Fae. I was really happy about that though as she was +SPD -HP and now I have a +3 dragon chicken. I'm really torn between using the rest of my orbs for Myyrh and saving them for the two super banners that are coming in February.

    I pulled until i had a not terrible iv myyrh. First 2 were +spd... (-atk and -def). Third was neutral. Good enough.

    Awesomely, i got pity broken with BIke, so that's great (also Mia, which was exciting).

    I should add, I still think Fae is great, but I'm already forced to run two blues with Nowi and Ninian. I gave the new SB to ATiki and run her now.

    Super jealous of the B!Ike, I've never managed to aquire one and have 0 SB for my dragons :( I have to make due with fury and TA3. I would feed my A!Tiki a B!Ike in a heartbeat, she's +5 now and I only need 50k feathers to finish T.T

    I don't know how I'd feel running A!Tiki alongside Myrrh. They both fill the same sort of niche (though Myrrh arguably does it much better) of being physical walls. The fact you can run SB/Vantage/QR on A!Tiki might make her better suited to it despite having less mobility and stats. Plus it's pretty easy to +10 her with out bankrupting yourself. That's another reason I'm sticking to Fae for now, I can +10 her instead and have her inherit hone dragons. Of course the real problem is that there just are not that many dragons to run, and I don't even know that F!Corrin really counts considering how much better Nowi and Ninian are.

    IS plz, we need goad/ward dragons!

    That said I don't think I'll be burning any more orbs until at least the Legendary Banner comes out to see if it's more appealing.

    The benefit of Myyrh and Tiki is triangle coverage. Dragons are tanky, but not THAT tanky. She also survives Julia and Deidre and doesn't die horribly to the falchions that for whatever reason still randomly pop up (though Ninian murders Falchions no problem).

    Personally don't like Vantage on dragons. They really need QR to get the kill, and both together only works in the 70-75% range (Which is obviously bonkers if you can consistently get there).

    Myyrh can take a hit from a falcion user? That's really surprising, because even with her nice defense I would have thought she'd be ORKO'd every time.

    I run vantage on A!Tiki because I have her with the QR3 seal. Perviously she was using QR3 with deflect magic. Since she has fury I don't get her to 70-75% much but the two do cover each other nicely. On Fae I've tried a lot of things but I actually sort of like renewal with TA3. I tried vantage and QR3 but I didn't feel it was needed for what I primarily use her for: baiting The Reinhart into suicide. I have also used bowbreaker though as it lets her KO B!Lynn reliably.

    I will admit I haven't taken hone dragons into account though. With that sweet, sweet +6 speed, I might have to change things around a bit as that could put Nowi and Fae into a position where they won't get doubled as much but still don't have the speed to actually double anyone. I will certainly be using Nowi/Ninia/A!Tiki/Myrrh for arena for the next few weeks though as that's an awesome team.

    Tiki survives Falchion (the implication is Fae struggles there). Not sure about Myyrh, they'd have to 1shot to get through her weapon. Chrom might? Not sure.

    I did some math and there is no way Myyrh survives a falcion, ever, even considering the opponent having an attack bane. If she gets initiated on she's dead in the water, and if she initiates she takes a chunk of health, then dies painfully (unless she procs a special). I've sim'd A!Tiki before too and I don't see how she survives either, even with deflect melee or close defense. Nowi can eat Falcions for breakfast (and Ninian can at least survive). However I don't think any of that is really an issue since you just don't see any falcion users in arena anymore as any red sword that isn't either on a horse, armor, or Arya is worthless. The Reinhart has put what seems to be a permanent end to sword lords.

    That said, I just saw the CYL2 early results and I am very disappointed. The men look good, I'm giddy at the thought of a Brave Hector as he's my man. But Camelia again? WHY? We've got 3 versions of her already! Celia I am very happy to see, but more Azura and Camila is not what I want to see. Give me versions of characters we don't already have a full arena team of.

    Personally, I'm voting for Nino to do her best, because I've loved her since she became my best unit in my first FE7 run. Also Erk sucks and I didn't know how to get Pent so that might be why.

    Can confirm. I've seen Armorsmasher Lucina more than Falchion Lucina.

    I got to run Reinhardt in the first time in ages since Zelgius is bonus. Ah, I miss you Rein.

    Set a new high this week too. Could have gone higher if I was sniping but eh, I'm safe to stay in T20 anyway.

    I've a feeling you'll see a lot more Falchions soon...

    I am super hyped for that. I have a +3 Lucinia and Not Lucinia as well as Chrom. Here's hoping they become relevant again.

    They kind of are relevant though? Myrrh is actually annoying enough where I'm going to run Marth as my bonus next week, to help Zelgius out.

    The thing to consider is that dew is rare. Are you actually going to use Lucina/Chrom in your arena core to justify the dew cost? Even if the refinement is amazing, I'd likely pass simply because they wouldn't replace any of my arena core.

    By the way, interesting note, the T20 threshold barely decreased from water season last week. It was 5036 this week. It's crazy if you want to stay in T20 now, got to keep merging to stay ahead of the curve.

    Xander GHB is making a comeback, along with a lot of other GHB. So that's neat. We're also getting a 5* for free. My money is on L!Ike or Hector wining (I'm voting Hector because I can always use more DC).

    Overall though I am extremely underwhelmed by the anniversary events. The rhythm mode does not appeal to me at all and while the free orbs are nice I'm not that hyped for it. I do like the 5% banner and that's why I have 300 orbs saved up. B!Ike for steady breath for my dragons will be super nice, and of course you can always use more B!Lyn's for SI. Sigard merged is a straight up monster, but Neph is just SI fodder to me. Wrath is nice but I don't need more good lances when I already have Cordelia, Effie, Rodrick ect.
