I wonder when we'll get Warding Stance. That'll be good for the meta.

I also hope they actually call it Warding Stance. I'm already getting Steady Stance, Steady Blow and Steady Breath confused and it doesn't help that two of them don't just affect DEF.

Distant defence is better. It just needs to be released on a unit that isn't 5 stars.

I think it'd be better for bulkier raven users.
They wouldn't have to worry about Cancel Affinity, and have a better time with magic.

That is always what happens. Crystals, orbs and feathers aren't enticing enough to keep on grinding for most people.

Nah, usually people slow down once they get the last seal available, but yeah it's just 10k after the character.

Just feels more pronounced now.
I was barely making a dent in the rankings before 30,000, but now I'm coasting through.
In other Tempest Trials, I would usually be in the top 5,000 at pount.

I feel like the halloween banner would be 1 month like the summer banners and last the whole of October. Maybe we'll see it soon.

I guess it's a good thing that the playerbase is still so active? With school starting and the summer game drought over, I would have thought the playerbase would have shrunk. I'm not seeing that at all.

Here's hoping. I've got 300+ orbs ready to blow on a Halloween banner.

I can't wait to get nothing but Peris, Marths and Jakobs.

Well, this has been a good period for the game I think, with the 6 months event, the (really) good free characters and all of those free orbs... IS is doing a good job to maintain interest right now.

Everyone here is invested enough in the game to post on a gaming forum. The other overall reward of getting feathers at the end isn't enough either for people to grind and play everyday. Don't really know how to change it either outside of changing the whole idea of tempest, which IS seems to be invested in. Even the mini tempest, people dropped off fast by the last seal at 20K.

We just had Nohrian summer. Hoshido or non-3DS characters please. Anyway I doubt Halloween will be 4 weeks, I think we will have Genealogy banner this week and Arvis soon after.

All the Warriors maps are good for SP and XP grinding when you account for the stamina cost and the weakened enemies. I've been training teams up, moving from map to map when their levels get too high to gain any meaningful XP.

Oh goodness. Finally got the opportunity to try out my Ike for the TT over a 4* Soren I had lying around, suddenly perfect runs seem way easier to pull off.

Ike and BIke are wonderful together, if BK wasn't at the end of these runs I'd not be shocked if they could duo the entire 7 stages.

130 Orbs atm. Hoping to save maybe 200 before the next "must pull" banner.

Will likely skip every banner besides seasonal banners from now on. The only exception would be for a Hinoka banner.

Camilla Hard (not the hardest one) is excellent. You can just park units somewhere and watch wave after wave of units suicide into them.

Honestly, dropping Genny/Jaffar to 4* units would do a LOT for ending Colorless Hell. Making it a Skill Inheritance pool rivalling Red would mean a lot. Wrathful Staff access in particular would make healer pulls less painful.

Watch them drop a banner with Hinoka on it days before the Halloween one just to screw over everyone who wants a proper flyer team :(.
