I've cleared both Birthright and Conquest, and I'm about to start Revelations. All I've really managed to learn is to use the princes(ses), Mozu is a beast, and that you can build some OP characters buying other people's skills. Since the royal family members are (I'm assuming) going to take up basically every spot on my battle rosters, does anyone have any suggestions for good marriages to have awesome children? Most of my previous attempts have been average to bad based on marrying for what I think should be fun couples...

All my avatar kids always end up super awesome and powerful and I never put any thought into it lol...

But for min maxing hulk babies, my first gut instinct would be to make babies with a good character of one of your favourite classes, with one of the characters that starts off by joining as a super weak villager. They always have insane stat growths, and on top of that they have skills they pass on to add extra stupid, to already stupid high stat growth.

Revelations arrives in the Eu shortly. I'm interested to see where they take it. Hopefully I'll be caught up pretty soon.

On an unrelated note, I think the best defensive castle is prolly the Nestrian one (with the water and islands). I didn't actually realise you could run inside the inner outer wall till I did it by accident. XD

Nestrian, not Chevois...

Well, today the last chapter of the Heirs of Fate DLC was released.... And I adore this version's rendition of End of All and Lost in Thoughts All Alone. Matthew Mercer blew it out the park for me.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Revelations is out and I've yet to even start Conquest. Because of... uh... this... XD

@DreamyViridi How much grinding did you have to do for that? XD

I'm gonna try and get all supports on Revelation, as that has the vast majority of the characters, and then get the few Revelation doesn't have.

@TheXReturns - Yeah, it took a while just because I took breaks in-between to avoid fatigue. I only just today reached Chapter 27 Birthright (which I'm assuming is the finale of Birthright); I love everyone too much, I guess.

At least all of the main Hoshidan S supports (for M Corrin) are done I think, there's also the Deeprealm kids to worry about for both sides but I will do that as aftergame content. I figured it'd be best to get them out of the way now so I don't have to worry about supports as much in Revelations. I will have to do this again for Conquest but oh well, just means more bonding.

@DreamyViridi Yep. That's the finale, more or less. You may want to do multiple runs on Conquest, else MyCastle grinding may send you insane. XD

I'm going through on each of the difficulties first, then I'll do all the support logs. I've virtually done Birthright Hard, and I'm running Revelation Hard. I'm a little scared of Conquest Lunatic. XD

@TheXReturns - Lunatic?! Even on casual mode; good luck with that!
Question about Revelations though; it's meant to be in-between the other two paths difficulty-wise but can you grind experience like in Birthright?

@DreamyViridi Yep. You still get challenges, to buy and normally, but it IS harder, at least comparing the Hard modes. Hard mode on both are still doable. Birthright Hard is actually much better than Normal. It's just at the sweet spot between being too hard and too easy.

@Miss_Dark What difficulty were you playing on? Birthright Hard feels like a better Birthright Normal. Revelations is harder, certainly initially, as you have very limited amounts of units against large numbers of foes. Every move counts. I started Revelation on Casual/Hard, and there have been a few tough fights, but enjoyably so.

It's midway in terms of Map design, with more emphasis on "you fight as many enemies as you choose to." Excluding the questionable idea of silence (you'll see what I mean.), it's certainly had an ok yarn so far. The only problem I have with it so far, is the fate of a particular character, at about a third of the way through, which feels exceptionally forced. If you play it, you'll understand. (I'm only at Chapter 18, so I can't comment on any of the endgame as yet.) Otherwise, it's not too bad.

How broken is the DLC skill "Blank Point"?

I'm not what to post, but something should pop up here eventually.

I managed to beat Birthright, finally.

Up until the underground tunnel area (the bit where Camilla is flinging fireballs at you non-stop), I was resetting every time a character would die. I managed to beat that level successfully. How naive was I?

From that point onwards, I would steadily lose more and more of my characters. In the big open arena with that bald bloke, I lost Azura (that stung), and I think Hinoka. I chalked them up to bad luck, and continued. I was finding that level extremely difficult, actually. A good tactic was to immediately move down towards the bottom, line up three of my hardiest soldiers (my Great Knight Avatar included), and desperately try to hold them off from my weaker forces. Once the flow had been stemmed, I'd send my Great Knight straight for the boss. Unfortunately, as I said, Azura & Hinoka would get themselves killed.

And so, over the next few levels (the duel between a certain prince being a nice breather - He didn't stand a chance against my beastkiller spear), I would end up losing pretty much all of the characters I'd gotten to know and worked so hard to train. My wife Mozu included...

I sniffed victory, and I've been playing for too long now - I just wanted to get the game over with.

And so I came up against the final boss. I had a chance to kill it with an assist from my avatar (0 + 12 damage at around 75% chance to succeed, but it wasn't to be. And so every last one of my troops (apart from my daughter who was right by my side, because I certainly didn't want her to die as well) was killed. I had my magical enchanted sword, and it could kill the boss, but again, there was only a 75% chance to succeed.
I was on my last 8hp, and surrounded by enemies, I opened my sack and killed the dragon with a brass sword.

The end sequence played, and everyone was happy because the war was over, and it was obviously a good time to party, but I was a bit sad because I lost so many people. Of course, after the credits, I loaded the save file, and it continued from the before I lost so many people, but Mozu and Azura were still 'dead'.

As to what went wrong, I did notice that the enemies were several levels higher than me (although by the end of the game, my avatar had reached level 20 as a Great Knight), but like I said, I was wanting to finish it
In my next game (conquest), I'll pay more attention to levelling up - it's not that I didn't try, more like I was spreading it a bit too wide, and many of my characters were level 1-3 in their advanced classes, when they should have been somewhere around lvl.8.

I'm currently on Chapter 26 in Birthright and will probably end up finishing it tomorrow or on Tuesday; while I've been having fun with all of the endless grinding shenanigans that Birthright has to offer, I'm ready to call it good and move on to Conquest finally.
All I have left to do is to finish up capping my top units, finish skill grinding the all-route characters so I have some skills I can inherit on Conquest/Revelations, and one or two more Ghostly Gold runs so I can forge some good weapons for my units to use in endgame.

Does anyone have any pairing advice for some of Conquest's kids? From what little research I've done, Camilla!Velouria and Elise!Ophelia are supposed to be really good units, and I've heard that they make great moms for Kana. I'm actually kinda leaning towards going the Ophelia!Kana route with a +Str -Lck Corrin as it seems to be the most balanced option for a Nohr Noble Kana.

Spoiler tagged that last bit there as I wasn't sure if it'd still count as spoilers, lol.

You gotta love when they mistranslate important infos even in such high quality games...

Just discovered the hard way that CounterMagic works also against magic attacks from distance, too bad that in Italian the text said the skill works only if the user is attacked by an enemy NEXT to him/her. Losing a unit like this right at the end of the chapter in Classic mode is painful for say the least T_T;

OK, so I'm finally making proper headway into Conquest.
Now, (without mentioning spoilers just in case) in Birthright; something happens to Kaze if you don't support him enough. Is there anything like that to worry about in Conquest (and Revelations)?

If so, don't spoil what actually happens. The general gist will do.

@DreamyViridi It IS technically possible to kill a recruitable character, but it's a lot fairer than Birthright, (Which gives you no warning). There will be a scene that asks you whether you wish to kill a character. There's no strings attached, it does literally mean 'do you wish to kill this poor guy'... I chose not to, and I've had no reason to regret it.

On an unrelated note, how's your grinding going? I visited your castle a while back, and I'll prolly do it again soon. I'm actually making an effort with my Revelation run to create a challenging castle fight. I've gone with the Nestrian style, which lends itself to a defensive fortress style, with Dusk Dragon to harm, Dawn Dragon to heal, and Puppets and Stoneborn to protect.

@TheXReturns - Pretty good. In terms of supports, Silas and Oboro have been paired, with Kaze and Felicia coming up next. Silas is my childhood bro and Kaze's my newfound retainer, so I ended up treating them real nice. They have a lot of the girls at "A" rank so they had a lot of choice. That same bias will probably appear in my Conquest playthrough... XD

I tweaked the Hoshidan Castle again to make it that little bit harder and changed the equips a bit. How did Azura do as the lead? I figured she'd do better at the throne with better hit rate and avoid than myself; my res is terrible... Will probably have her change classes. If I may ask, what gave you the most trouble in my Castle, if any?

@DreamyViridi I just about squeaked a victory. It's much tougher now, although I will say that your Dawn Dragon is pretty ill-defended from the south. Other than that, it was tough...

How has everyone liked Fates?

Personally I really loved it- the gameplay is finally perfected. But the game really falls short in terms of characters and story. Shame too cause the actual premise is very intriguing. Overall though, one of the best games of this handheld generation. And tons of content, for miles and miles as far as the eye can see.
