Uh, that depends on if you want the new units or not. The ones announced today aren't in the current banners.

Yes.

Just use your free summon on each banner and quit. You could get lucky and get a 5 star.

Wait, so their base promoted class lets Chrom and Lucina use both swords and lances? That's pretty cool. Never got that far. My apologies.

It's up to you, whether you care enough about them. I don't. Gameplay-wise, all four of them are looking good in terms of skills (not sure about the stats spread yet) and are certainly above the average of what we have seen in Heroes so far. If you just want strong units, you can't go wrong with any of them. Many people in this thread plan to choose Lyn as the free pick to avoid the colorless hell and then actually pull the other 3 colors. The power creep is real, though it is too early to access how much impact this has yet.

Also, we get to pick/guaranteed one hero without pulling in that upcoming banner?

Correct. Only one though.

It also helps that in a game where horse emblem is such a thing, getting access to the first horse archer, with such a good starting kit and apparently good stats also, is quite hard to refuse.
I'm waiting for the confirmation of her stats, but if she's not totally crap I don't see any reason to pick anyone else but her, really.

However, average non-whale players like me won't be too keen to optimally build her; our expectation for her is just to fuck shit up in PvE (CC, SA, AA 2nd - 7th) with crazy pony buffs. For that purpose, her neutral spread should get the job done. Ranged unit on horse isn't going to be ideal for arena anyway, due to BST. Unless the CYL weapons cost 500SP or something.

Jesus, got pretty far on 11+12 chain challenge (map 9) but these turn limit maps with enemies who sit on defense tiles and don't move are really stupid. I'll try 9+10 instead I guess.

Good to know my flier team finds the early maps easy, especially the one with the mountains where you're split up. that was a big hurdle for my cavalry squad.

My record is almost 400 orbs without a 5*. I got Lucina from the first voting gauntlet, but then went on a really bad streak getting nothing from the Effie banner and then hitting 6.25% sniping blues on the Ninian one right afterwards.

Highest % I ever saw was 7+4% on the last hero fest, but that's only like 200.

Condolences bro. Hope you get a Tana/Amelia or two eventually.

I think I reached that kind of pity rate at 2 or 3 occasions before, but got something decent in the end. The things that angered me more are getting some 4.5 ~ 5 cleared by a garbo 5* like -Def +Res Lukas.

Anyway, any people picking up Mario + Rabbids and/or War of the Chosen? It is a pretty good time to be alive as a SRPG fan isn't it. I hope they can give relief to my Heroes sorrow.

I took tomorrow off to play War of the Chosen lol. I'm a bit sad that Mario and that are releasing at the same time, otherwise I would have checked out both. I'll have to wait on Mario.

Didn't even think about the banners associated with the new gauntlet until this morning. Pretty great options. Went full reckless. I wanted Hector, frustrated for 7 months. First pull for free was a disappointing Arthur. Second pull was 5 greens, I've never seen it before. I got a decent fae as my fourth draw but trash otherwise. Fifth draw was a +Atk, -spd Hector. Amazing.

Also wanted Lyn. But too many reds on that banner to risk it. I'll save her CYL unit for the free draw if I don't get her from the banner first.

I've somehow managed to not yet get any of Tharja, regular Lucina or regular Lyn (but do have Spring and Bridal), so tried one extra pull after freebie 3* Olivia. My least desired was Tharja so you know how that goes...5* but only -hp/+res. Still can be useful, also another option for the vote. OTOH, after my early Amelia get, Sacred is still not inclined to give me another 5*. An excellent 4* iv Clair is something at least. Looking forward to the powerful CYL special characters.

I just realized that after multiple gauntlets with no bonus character, I actually have every single character on this one.

Probably will just join team Hector, he may not have won the CYL poll but that was taken before he became infamous in FEH. I think he has a chance.

I have level 1s available for Tharja, Chrom and Camilla though so they'd be good for the easy autobattle route.

Possibly, as the new banner won't start until Thursday, and arena ends tonight. Unless they're REALLY gonna juke us and have 4 more new units ready for tomorrow morning.

Free summon from the women banner was 5 colorless. At least it was a Leon. Free summon from the male banner didn't have a green so went with red, got the Hinata I needed badly. Decided to yolo the banner for Hector. 20 orbs later ended up with Cecilia, Hinata, Barst, and Hector. Fury, repo, pony merge, and +atk -def Hector. Worth it.

I reached 5.75% before pulling my Summer Corrin, and that was after having my pity rate broken 4 times. I stopped counting the orbs after a while, but I spent at least 600 on that banner.

Can't decide which free unit I'm going with.. Probably Lyn just to avoid colorless. I think she will be great with neutral stats too. And then use about 100 orbs I've saved trying for Ike and Lucina.

Brave Ike isn't a direct counter, but will easily tank her and destroy her next turn.

Things like Oboro, Beruka and Est, but they are solid to very good units in their own rights. I would just pay the 1 Orb to expand to be honest.

6% to get Corrin.

Brave doesn't make any sense on a DC build - it's geared towards enemy phase and her counterattack would be way too weak to finish anything. The best choice for this build by far is Deft Harpoon which I don't have.

This is pretty much her best build except that Swift Sparrow would be better here.

bah, Azura accidentally teleported and danced to Palla instead of the Camilla next her which resulted in me losing someone on chain challenge 9+10 map 4. But my 1 hp corrin, azura and palla managed to almost clear map 5 (just a sword left). So I've got a fresh cavalry team and 1 reserve left for chapter 10's bullshit.

If I fail this I'll know to put attack+1 on Camilla because the main problem I had there was a healer surviving with 1 HP, allowing Bruno to run away instead of get baited and killed. Flier team would probably be able to clear map 5 if they were full strength. Surprisingly, Palla easily one-rounded Veronica, I figured her stats would be too jacked up.

So the free pull went well today:

Went for the green orb on the free pull, then decided I may as well grab the red ones too since I didn't have any of Lyn/Tharja/Lucina. Between the 5* Nino I got from the free pull on the last banner, this Camilla, and the free Ike later this week (if I take him), the game has really solved my green unit drought for me. :P

Lyn is +SPD -ATK which isn't really ideal, but I'll give her an attack seal and have her pal around with Ephraim. Camilla is +RES -HP which is kind of average I guess. Maybe I can use her to bait blue and green mages?
