For those that don't know, Fire Emblem Heroes is a free-to-play mobile game. Are you also playing? Or is it just me playing 1-2 hours per day on my phone?

The game is pretty impressive for free-to-play, and it captures the battle system quite well on a small screen.

it's alright. I hate how few orbs you get compared to how many it takes to summon a full 5 characters. I got lucky in the beginning and pulled five star Ryoma, Robin, and Marth in the first day, so I've been using them ever since. I also use a five star spring Chrom that I pulled during the easter event. It's good to waste some time I guess

It does take a while, but in the mean while, you can raise the characters that you've already gotten haha.

I didn't spend any money until the banner with Ike/Soren/Mist/Titania.
Now I have a ton of characters, one Soren, [four Mist, two Titania, gah].
But I've found that most of the characters I regularly use were the ones I got previously from free summons or that I had unlocked potential for (Lilina, Kagero, Olwen, Minerva, Cordelia, Subaki, Sully).

I'm hoping to summon one of the special Bridal characters because fun event characters seem like fun (I have Spring Xander), but no luck yet. Hopefully my orbs will get back to 20 before the banner ends.

I think it's ok as a time-waster, but I'm not as fond of it as I am the more mainline Fire Emblem games. I keep coming back, mainly to try my luck at the wheel, but my luck is pretty bad.

After each summon without getting a 5*, your odds of getting a 5* increase for the active banners. So summoning once per banner doesn't help your odds, but a bunch of times in the same banner does. I usually try to wait until I've built up a lot of orbs (60+) and then summoning during a banner that has characters I would actually want, but waiting can be tough.

60 + orbs. Yeesh.

I did get someone interesting; a level 5 Karel. I'm hoping for Ike though.

Okay I'm not always so good about waiting if I'm definitely gonna spend them for the active banner. I've summoned three times during this bridal banner though, which would have been 60 orbs total. No bridal units yet, though I did get a 5* Cordelia and 4* Olivia.

Oooh Karel is awesome! Do you know what his IVs are?

I can honestly say that this game has taken over my life, and it explains why I take so long to get ready for bed on certain nights.

The best units I've got currently so far I'd say are a 5-star Spring Lucina and a 4-star (now 5-star) Gunter.

A 5-star Karel sounds amazing. Did you get that from summoning?

Apparently fensti has 180+ orbs. He's not interested in the current banners so he keeps saving... ._.

I just got Bridal Lyn, which is my second favorite of the four so I'll take it.

I'm one of the more lucky F2P players; I got Lucina, Hector, and Takumi all within my first week of pulling characters. o:
Now I have a hefty arsenal of about 20 5*'s just from getting lucky/hero feathers.

It has definitely taken over my life, as well.
I just love collecting the characters.
I can't imagine how much time I'll waste on my phone when both this AND the AC app are out.

Congrats on Bridal Lyn!
My sister pulled her too. She does come with some interesting skills for a staff user. :3

I imagine when the AC app is out, I will have to cut the time I'm spending on Heroes haha. Will have to see.

I usually have fun with the Grand Battle maps as they feel like puzzles--you know, how do you solve the map without dying. I have been lazy for the last two maps though and just looked up how other people did it. I was surprised at a possible free-to-play Lunatic Camus solution, which was:
[] Nino - other green mage might work, but you'd want Draw Back on them
[] Dancer - the free neutral Olivia works
[] Flier - not required to fight, is just bait for the healing mage
[] "Strong" red unit


No special 5-star units required. The internets is so inspiring.

Thanks!
She is by far my favorite support unit/healer! The debuff from Candelight comes in handy!
I mostly wanted to pull Bridal Cordelia.

I usually use guides for the Lunatic just bc I want the 4* character haha.
I usually wait until the last day though, bc it is definitely more satisfying to do it myself
Lately I've been bad at strategy though; I haven't beaten one on my own since Zephiel.
My startegy for most maps is have Hector and Nowi just now everyone down

Bridal Cordelia is who I'm hoping for too. I don't have a reliable bow unit yet.
Then rng was mean and gave me a regular 5* Cordelia instead, with the same IVs as my other 5* Cordelia. =_=

Ahh.... Yeah, I think I started glancing at online videos at Zephiel (that was when I was like "oh yeah, a Dancer might help hur hur).

XD

Tempest maps are interesting. I've been able to walk through Hard maps with one team (Lilina, Minerva, Mae, Alfonse), but doing the 5-map Lunatic, I needed to dip into a second team. I generally don't bring staff units but it might be helpful for Lunatic 7-maps, eh heh.....

I would like Masked "Marth" too, haha, even if she comes with no skills.

A bit annoying that while I do have Tharja for the 40% bonus, I haven't raised her at all... and then she'll mess with my team composition (I generally use Lilina as my mage because she is a fun nuke). Gah.

I am #blessed to have 5* Robin, Lucina, Nowi, and Tharja somehow
I had to use feathers on Nowi, but I just got insanely lucky the first month of playing.
Now I almost never get any 5*'s from pulls, which is so sad bc the event ones are one-time only! (To an extent; I'm sure they'll reappear someday. )

I read that Masked Marth's stats and build are the exact same as normal Lucina's, though, so since I already have her I won't be too upset if I only get the 4*

That is quite #blessed indeed, haha. You can take your pick of which unit you feel like using to take on Tempest.

Currently I average a score of 350 each time I clear Lunatic 5-maps. Total score is 3871 at the moment.
I think.... I'll just keep trucking along.

EDIT: Eh math is hard.
So I was doing a Lunatic 5-map, and got unlucky on a scuffle in map 3, so I had to use a third team by the time I got to the last map. Thankfully most of the enemies were green, so I threw in my not-quite-to-par Tharja, and took the map.

The multiplier for using a 40% bonus character more than compensates for a low survival multiplier, so uh got 450 that run though.
I guess I might end up adopting a strategy where I use Tharja once, knowing I'll have to change out my team anyway.

I sometimes can clear the 5-map Lunatic; it's always iffy depending on how the units get randomized.
I haven't gotten through the 7-map though. I made it to the end once, but the boss stage was waaay too intense

I think I just hit 5,000. Im dressing going by the 1000s now to get rewards, ugh.

That last stage is a pain. Uh it's mostly Veronica's fault. Why does she have so much HP?? =_=
At least the units are fairly consistent. It seems to be charging cavalry (top left), ranged infantry (next to Veronica), magic support cavalry (top right), armored class (middle).

Ah! Such an inspiration! Congrats. :0

*Dreading, not dressing.

Yeah, the colors/specific units definitely can screw you over, though!
I've gotten down to just Veronica too many times, and she will still decimate my 2-3 units.

What team(s)/strategy do you use, mainly?
My starting team is just all four of the 40% units, bc they actually can clear quite a few maps very well. I have inherited support skills to up Speed/Attack/Defense on all of them, so that helps. Then Lucina can give people 10 hp, bc she gains it back with her weapon. I can get through 4-5 maps with them.
(I usually get destroyed if there are too many Blue units, though, as I don't have a Green or Colorless.)

I've been approaching this similar to how I approach the arena.
One unit of each main color (Lilina for red, Minerva for green, usually I do Sully blue, but using Mae for blue seems to be a bit better on average for this). They all have support skills which is what lets them shuffle around to live most of the time.
Then the fourth unit is whoever gives the bonus from the arena or whatever. So I had been using Alfonse, since mine is 4* with Draw Back, but he only gets the 20% bonus.

This generally works fine... Sometimes I can manage Lilina so when she enters the 5th map, she'll have her special, Growing Flame, ready to go. It is quite satisfying seeing her nuke enemies with it.
But alas I have realized that having no healer means one misstep/bad matchup and my start team goes down. Also Growing Flame while fun, hasn't been as effective as I would like. It hits stuff mostly in a horizontal pattern, not vertical, so very often on the last map it doesn't hit other units. :<

So... quite often, my team is tired/dead on the last map so I have to switch to a second team. Generally this has been either:
Pseudo Horse Emblem (I taught Eldigan Hone Cavalry, Sully, Titania, Leo, Ursula, kind of whoever I need)
Sanaki if I need a nuking red mage
Soren or Nino if I want a green mage
Kagero if I think it is worthwhile (as she is only effective against two ranged people that will generally OHKO her)
Alm

Most of my support skills are for shuffling movement around. Generally the opening turn on the last map is I have a mage whap the armored unit and then pull them back. Or put an appropriate mage as bait for the cavalry mage. If I'm lucky on matchups, I might be able to do both.
Hmm... I guess it's not surprising, but if I can do both on the first turn it really helps.
What doesn't help is I haven't given support skills for shuffling to Eldigan, Titania, Leo, or Alm. Eh.

A few options I've considered to try to make my team more surviveable:
[] Alm has Falchion so maybe I should try using him haha. I have a spare 4* Fae (free Renewal 3), so I could pawn it off to Alm with Reciprocal Aid so he can be a pseudo healer.
[] I have a Genny sitting around. I could try to figure out a skill set so I could have an offensive healer on my team.
[] I have leveled up my 4* Tharja to 38 and gave her Green Tomebreaker and Drawback. Retribution is kind of useless though. Gah.

"Alm has Falchion so maybe I should try using him haha. I have a spare 4* Fae (free Renewal 3), so I could pawn it off to Alm with Reciprocal Aid so he can be a pseudo healer."
This works amazing w/ my Lucina, if you don't mind getting like a "C" ranking for speed at the end lol!
It also depends on the map. Some maps the enemies will just let you shuffle around and completely heal, 100%!
Others they come at you as soon as you make a movement in general.

I wish my Bridal Lyn had a bit more power.
Wrathful Staff is all but impossible to get; Lyn would pack a bit of a punch with it, though, as well as still debuffing enemies.

My Tharja KILLS being 5*, but she is very fragile.
A Nino support team would probably work better; I've seen a lot of players run to the end with a team basically set up just to support Nino and let her kill everything.

Also, we should add each other as friends on there, if you'd like? I need some more!
Plus we can use each others units in the Gauntlets!
(Idk if that counts as a FC/there is a spot for that on ACC? )

I gave Alm the skills, now he needs to grind for Renewal 2 then Renewal.

I have a 5* Tharja, but her IVs aren't so great (+Res -Spd) so I was thinking I would let someone (maybe Lilina) eat up her tome. I haven't actually pulled the trigger yet eh heh...

I heard someone say that their Nino is always at 1 HP because of Fury, but that is fine because she just kills everything with Desperation.
And I'm like what??
I mean, I think I understand in theory how Desperation is supposed to work, but I have yet to see Mae make use of it.

Yeah we should add each other! It would be fun to see some of your units randomly haha.
Uh... not sure what is the best way to go about doing that though eh heh. The FC filter probably would catch it.

EDIT:
I put in my ID under "Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon". Just ignore the two extra zeros at the end. I'll FCR you. =P
