Moonbow is just fantastic in general. I put it on Roy too and it activates every time on an Attack/Defense/Attack move. I one shot units way more than I used to (I never put Triangle Adept on my Roy so I could use him more defensively against all units).

Is it even worth it to get Cherche from 4* to 5*? I put Camilla's Brave Axe on her and she kicks ass, but the prevalence of archers everywhere and her low res is putting me off integrating her into my team.

You should get your 5* to 40, play the game more and get a better feel of the game and its mechanics before sacrificing units. Most teams you face in the arena are still pretty vanilla.

Nino is definitely the crux of my offense but the others will be called upon to pull their weight depending on matchups.

Put Desperation on Nino! Then in the the A slot you can put Fury so she can proc the desperation. This will allow her to one shot Hector and many other mages as well. Desperation makes it so both your attacks happen before the counter.

I would wait. Next banner may have Minerva and the next grand hero battle is Michalis who comes with a skill that negates disadvantages. Either of those may be a better option and could save you the feathers.

What's a good B Skill on Nino? I'm considering Wings of Mercy 2 or Escape Route 2 for mobility.

Also I can do Darting Blow 3 from Florina. Better option than Fury 3?

Ooooh that's a good one! Brilliant! And I've got two Shannas to sacrifice for this cause!

So I'm going to end up with

Nino
Weapon: Gronnblade+
Assist: Draw Back
Special: Moonbow from Palla
A: Fury 3 from Hinata
B: Desperation 3 from Shanna
C: Hone Attack 3

I'm hoping they update it soon. I'm guessing it will happen when they add more story chapters, but who knows when that is. Maybe April?

Are you talking about Arena? Because you'd have to change one character every week due to the bonus heroes.

Any suggestions to what A slot skill to give to Palla? I'd figure Darting Blow or Speed +3 would be fine for her. If it matters, my team is made up of all/mostly fliers.

I'm thinking about running Moonbow + Killer weapon on a speedy unit for the same reason. I have a dupe Odin, so I won't be losing anything.

Tell me about it, only I sold most of them for feathers way before I knew skill inheritance was on the horizon, ugh. I wonder if they're holding out for Echoes? Putting those characters in the hero rotation in addition to an Alm/Celica/whoever else would be great for advertising.

You need two ticks of HP loss from Fury 3 to activate Desperation 3. I would honestly give Darting Blow 3 a strong consideration for Nino. There's no quick answer for this as you really have to go down the list of characters to see whether the trade-off is worth it.

4586 points, it's not that high since it's around 1070 in rank. Plus, replace Ninian with Eldigan, that's what I'm using.

I did something really stupid today. I had a spare Ephraim, and I leveled him up to 40 today because I thought the SP would transfer over, but they don't. But next month they're going to change it so merged units also transfer over their skills, so I'm going to wait until then to learn skills on a second Ephraim, then transfer them over.

Still got 76 in the bank with plenty more available from quests.

I'm doing the same. It is a bad banner, and White will be nerfed if any of the healers here remain 5* in subsequent banners. It's becoming a worse color to pick as time goes on.

I'd be happy just to get a Kagero. I can put her on Defense, and likely get 500 Feathers with the right team mates.

Pick your favorite, most reliable units and give them Fury 3 (from Hinata)

so when it comes to inheriting skills, do i need to level up the source character? Like if I want rank 2 of a skill, do i need to teach them the level 1(the source) or teach the receiving character the level 1 from another source first?

Nope

You can learn any and all skills available to a character, even if they're unlearned. That said, certain skills are locked behind certain ranks, so you'll still need to raise certain units.

So for example in your above suggestion of fury 3 do I:

A) Get Hinata to where he can learn it before feeding him to someon

B) Feed 3 Hinata to learn each rank in succession

C) None of the above?

Edit: I figured it out. I was being super hesitant to poke stuff on that screen :P

Fury also makes Nino resilient to green and definitely blue mages who she can bait out to attack her. So I think the idea is she would be attacked for some damage, and then Fury would put her in the desperation threshold.

A is correct, provided that "get Hinata to where he can learn it" involves ranking up to 4 stars.

You can inherit up to three skills, and you must inherit Fury 1, Fury 2 and Fury 3 all together

You need to get Hinata to 4 stars and give fury 1, 2, and 3 onto the unit you want to give the skills to. You only need 1 Hinata to do that.

If Nino makes the first attack and then gets attacked in return, the first combat round would cause her to be at a worse effective health than before due to -6hp. So it makes her less resilient unless she gets attacked first at full HP, which I find unlikely due to having dancers in the team.

The biggest argument in favor of Fury is for higher arena score.

I'm in the same boat. I put Pivot on my Hector and Triangle Adept on my MRobin and that's about it. I keep thinking about who to dive into next but I get anxious thinking I might build my units wrong. Basically just scanning here and reddit looking for builds for my Hector, MRobin, Tharja, Lucina, Julia, Catria and Kagero (my only 5 stars).

Just an example:

Armads
Pivot
Pavise
Distant Counter
Brash Assault
Threaten Attack

This is assuming you aren't using other armoured units.

The biggest argument in favor of Fury is for higher arena score.

Yea I just use the Res 3 and because her health is low any small amount of damage she trades usually gets her in desperation range. So maybe save Fury for someone else.

Like I just did with Ninian! I'm ready to play with a teleporting dancing dragon.

Edit. Also Fury may not have as much impact on the next arena season.

I'll level both and figure it out later. Thanks for noting this.

Would you still say Desperation 3 is the right choice for B or is there something better?

Your mileage may vary. I'm FTP and I'm building a badass team right now. Should be competitive against everything except the fattest whales who I wouldn't see in Arena anyway due to matchmaking.
