Maybe check his nature first? If he's +Atk he can be pretty good, especially with Horse Emblem.

And then there's Effie's player phase build if you have a good Effie. Or if you have a high Atk flier, that could work too.

I guess it is a safe assumption because every free unit they have given were neutral. I really hope it's the case here too.

He has Atk+/-Res I was too focused on Tana so I didn't noticed whoops. Maybe I'll try something with a horse emblem team

Swordbreaker is not worth the SI and Heavy Blade works only because Ike has a huge atk stat (especially on atk+) combined with aether, remove one of these and it's not worth it. Merging is better imo

Depending on whether or not you want to use him as your arena core; merge if yes and fodder if no. Ike's Aether and Heavy Blade are good for arena scoring, not to mention the usefulness of DC in actual arena battles. He's solid choice for red especially if you don't plan on heavily merging other good reds with higher availability (eg. Olivia). If not, then by all means use the one with worse boon/bane as fodder. The three inheritable skills he has (Aether, Heavy Blade, and Swordbreaker) are all highly valuable.

As someone with constantly terrible luck, I beg for the free gift to be guaranteed neutral; but that summoning screen (with 4 stones) they showed in the stream kinda makes me worry. I think there is a possibility for the free gift to go through the same summoning screen and animation, constituting the same 2nd layer gacha. I hope I'm just worrying too much.

I have a +Atk/-Spd Abel and he is a killer in Pony Emblem, even without Death Blow. Will nuke any red unit and can deal decent damage to a fair number outside of that. Definitely hold on to him if you're running some horse teams.

Well, majority of people won't have a lvl 50. A 40+10 is whale territory in most cases. Unless you're a whale and still don't have a lvl 50 then you're whaling wrong.

Beat Lunatic CC 9 + 10. Took a few attempts, including one where I failed the final map by a single turn, but Xander/Cecilia/Reinhardt/Azura carried me all the way to map 9. Lucina/Ephraim/Nino/Olwen somehow made it through map 9 without any casualties, and then they rampaged through map 10 without a care in the world, with only Ephraim surviving to get the finishing blow on Ike. I had an extra team in reserve this time, but that was tough to figure out, especially Ursula's map. 11 + 12 is not going to be fun.

I think I can do 11+12 as soon as I figure out a solution for the map with sonya/leon in a little defense tile fort, and mega tank from hell Saber blocking a choke point.

Fliers might be good there, but I need my fliers for an earlier map and they can't clear the turn limit one with all the mages holed up in a fortress. I'll need Hone Fliers and another Goad before I can even hope to take out that Celica.

We have no idea what Lucina and Ike's stats are, and while Roy seems nice I don't really need him. And if you want that Ike to be really crazy then he needs a Distant Counter too.

I wonder if they actually only come with 1 skill though. I certainly don't think axe Ike will come with DC, but it can't hurt for me to wait and see.

I hear you. I'll be too scared to pull the free unit coming Thursday. There is 40 some percent chance it's going to be atk-/spd-. That's much higher than 3% 5* pity rate. Glass is half empty and cracked. Early birds get worms, but early worms get eaten, first.

So the Gauntlet matchups are out: Ike (1) v Roy (2), Hector (3) v Chrom (4), Lyn (1) v Lucina (2) and Tharja (3) v Camilla (4) in R1.

Shouldn't it have been Ike/Chrom, Roy/Hector, Lyn/Camilla and Tharja/Lucina though?

Are you asking which team is more likely to lose? Chrom or Roy I would guess, but its hard to say really. These are the Top 8 most popular from CYL, I imagine most matchups will be stalemates.

They're strong, but it is likely at least one of them will join the 4 star pool (probably Amelia since she doesn't have a Legendary weapon).

Spend money if you want to support the game or open orbs for fun. Spending money because you want X unit is a quick ride to the salt mines.

But yeah, they are replaceable even in their roles, they are going into the normal pool of units in a few days, and they will return as focus units. For example the voting gauntlets and 'X skill users' banners are two ways they bring back certain focus heroes. Hell, how many times has Tharja been in a banner now? Don't worry about it too much.

I was pulling red on the CYL today in hopes of getting Lyn or Lucina. used about 75 of the orbs I had saved up.

All i got was a 5* Sanaki with the absolute worst possible IVs. Makes it easy to not give this game money.

It would be really cool if Amelia went to 4*. I doubt it though. They've been kind of stingy about units going to 4* lately. Gray and Saber being 5* was incredibly strange. I wouldn't be surprised if only Seth goes to 4*.

But they will be on banners again in the future.

I don't think there has been a 4 unit banner that didn't have 2 4 star demotions. Not yet anyway. I mean, they could do Seth and Innes (I wish), but they usually don't demote Legendary Weapon wielders if there are other options.

Don't be ridiculous. You're making a stupid logic mistake, still.

If it was evenly matched like you think it is, the mechanics would never trigger, and so you should have no problem with it. Chrom VS ephraim isn't happening again, certainly not with any reliability.

Because it will never be evenly matched, all it does is give some motivation for anyone not picking team Ike/Lucina to actually participate in the gauntlet. It doesn't even make a difference to the winner most of the time, because it's not supposed to be a guarenteed win. When did it even actually make a difference to the final result? That one Gaius match last time?

Chrom vs Ephraim would've triggered that multiplier off the first hour, and almost certainly would've proceeded to ruin the match because of it

She's becoming my first +3 unit. Hopefully, that took away some of bad IVs from the CYL banner, Thursday .

Nah. Lyn won the CYL vote, but barely anyone voted for any other characters from her game other than hector. After them, the next highest was Dorcas at 21st, which were joke votes, and then Eliwood all the way down at 36th. Meanwhile, awakening had 13 characters above the main lord of the game Lyn is in, all getting votes that the awakening crowd will put on to Tharja or Lucina.

Plus,vanilla Lucina has been a banner unit like 4 times including the latest one, where vanilla Lyn is only just now getting her second appearance after the release banners. There will be significantly more Lucinas in the game than Lyns.

Plus Lucina is a better unit in Heroes than Lyn on top of everything else...

Basically the only hope Lyn has is if Tharja splits the awakening vote a large amount.

Game popularity is meaningless. Ephraim won against Chrom. And you forget that Lucina have a lot of haters, in fact Lyn is the only female that doesn't have a large haterbase.

Don't unless you need more heroes for Arena Assault. -Spd is awful and Brave Roy is superior in every way.
