Re: Fire Emblem Fates: Or GS and OM go on about something nobody else plays


I'd be jelous, but I blew all my RNG luck on my other phone game so I can't really complain :lol

But I agree, the game is VERY obtuse, surprisingly so for a mobage. The stamina mechanism is VERY common for these types of games though, virtually every phone game I've dabbled in uses it in some form or another.

I'm curious to see how the game evolves though, as it definitely needs some work in a few places.

Re: Fire Emblem Fates: Or GS and OM go on about something nobody else plays


So, a few thoughts

- Healers are ridiculously the opposite of FE where they will outlevel your other guys easily. A single healer in your team basically brings in XP all the damn time, especially once you get Reconcile which heals the healer as well as the healed. My 3 star Azama is level 20 and my highest character. :lol

- Upgrading quality is expensive. Getting Azama from 3 star to 4 star is 5000 feathers. Get ready to haunt reddit threads for random friend codes to buff your hero feather supplies. :lol

- Merging heroes is mostly only good if you have a bunch of lower ones that are level 1, so far as I've seen. Mostly it gets you skill points, but there's no reason to merge a higher leveled version into a fresh 4 star or something, from what I've seen yet.

- The AI is annoyingly patient. Eventually you kind of have to risk a hit just to "trigger" them so they advance, or they'll sit in their perfect defense positions forever. Annoying, especially on Donnell's recruitment map, where *every unit has Lunge*

- Also, !@#$ Lunge. :lol Rather than swapping spaces like the old version, this one essentially harpoons the enemy and drags them back a space with you. Which on Donnie's map means you get a chain reaction as your one unit is dragged back into the midst of the gangbang before Donnie finishes them off. Probably amazing for player units too, but as is, I just kept seeing my units get snagged and dragged until I went crashing through the map with my 15+ team. :lol

- Mounted Mages are my bane at present. They can hit triangle weaknesses and most units don't have great Res so far. And their movement range is nuts on these limited maps (whereas Effie moves...one space a turn. One.) They can generally engage you far out of range if you don't have mounted units of your own, and the RNG hasn't really been giving me a lot of casters, it seems. Azama's increasing level may have to do with him being a high Res, ranged unit to tank them. :lol

Re: Fire Emblem Fates: Or GS and OM go on about something nobody else plays


Yeah, I pulled a 4 star healer (one who I don't recognize name-wise, I *believe* she might be from Gaiden or possibly Mystery Book 2), and she's my best guy. Not only can she heal and level at a stupid rate, she (via SP unlocking) has an offensive spell, meaning in one slot I have both a mage AND a healer, yes please. At 200 SP she gets a buff that gives everyone around her a hilariously OP +3 attack as well. I've also pulled 4* Hana with an Armor Slayer and... the green cavalier from Mystery/SD (Abel? !@#$ if I remember since they're all the same guy save color), with a Brave Lance, plus an unstoppable 4* Virion who basically gets every stat, every level :lol

But yeah, the AI follows the wait to engage rules of the older FEs, which is very tricky when you only get 4 guys and don't have an Ike/Hector/Effie/Nepheenee/etc tank to pull agro with. I generally haven't bothered with the recruit maps because the difficulty vs reward (a 1* hero) is lolbad, and the hard ones are even worse. You're better off just grinding tower for levels and merging your pull dupes. They're very much just small upgrades so yeah you're always better served just dumping into the highest *'d version you have and then power leveling that one.

That said I'm taking the lessons I learned from my other mobage experience and hording the hell out of my orbs unless I run into a progress wall, so that when the power creep starts and they intro new units I'll have a cache ready to go.

So, apparently Nintendo had a re-Tweet thing or something. If it was re-tweeted 10K times, they'd give everyone 10,000 feathers.

...um...they finished it in like ten minutes. :lol

So I'll be looking to use that to kick the intro trio and Corrine up to 4* status. Should help them compete with my other 4* competitors.

Still no luck for another 5* since Effie, though I have to laugh at seeing that apparently the game designers made Takumi the most broken thing in the game as the ONLY archer who has a 1-2 attack range. :lol

Well that's fair since he's hilariously broken in Birthright too. :lol

But yeah, I've learned from my prior experiences to horde the hell out of consumables, so I'm riding what I have for the time being and saving those precious feathers for down the line.

Got my first 5* in Julia on my pull for this event too. Hugely happy, desperately needed both a green and a mage because the knights (esp lance knights) at the end of the campaign were a massive thorn in my previous team comps.

Re: Fire Emblem Fates: Or GS and OM go on about something nobody else plays


So still playing with FE:H as time goes along. It's basically my go-to mobile game, and there's been definite improvements over time.

Hilariously, though, FE Fates has become my in-between stamina game as I push through to finish it before moving on to FE: Echoes.

Speakin' of which.

I laugh every time I read off the title of the game, for reasons no one else but Uni gets. :lol

Haven't started it yet, see above, but I'm looking forward to poking at it given a lot of the new details coming out here and there. And also because I got a 5 Star Celica and I want to know who this chick is. :lol

I play Heroes for a week, then get bored with it, then come back to it, rinse, repeat. It's not super holding my attention but it's a decent time waster.


Haven't opened Echoes (yes, i'm calling it that, sorry not sorry :lol) yet, been too busy with the new job(s) to sit down and tackle something right now.
