Damage from staff users is normally halved. Presumably Wrathful Staff causes this to be ignored, and calculates staff damage as though they were tomes.

A new batch of quests for sacred seals is up. This time it has HP +3, Fortify Res 1, and Spur Def 1 as rewards. And apparently the KO L35+ tasks, even though it's Barst and Hana, is relatively easy to accomplish because 8-5 Lunatic has a L40 enemy with no weapon.

The new Grand Hero Battle is live, and Lloyd looks more like a character from Trails then from Fire Emblem. Interesting set of skills, though. His unique sword gives +2 Atk/Spd if the target is at full health, and he also gets Iceberg, Pass, and Threaten Atk.

A new set of present maps just launched, this time letting you fight against Awakening and Fate's illustrator's favourite characters. 5 maps, 2 difficulties, 10 orbs, with some quests structured basically just like the defensive battles ones.

I drew the above banner again before the event ended. I got Genny and a 5-star Klein. I got all four of the Focus heroes in just two attempts. Plus 1 extra five star. Crazy.

I also drew the new Bride banner once last night and got Caeda and a 5-Star Cain. Pretty good haul using nothing but freebie Orbs. Seven 5-star Heroes for 60 Orbs and $0.

Yeah, I got a Caeda with my pulls this morning myself. I think she might be the best unit in the banner, though I think Bridal Lyn has an interesting kit.

I started leveling her without checking her IVs, though. Oh well.

Details on that survival mode IS teased a few months back just came out. From 8 June to 22 June, the Tempest Trials will be active, featuring a new type of challenge event. As was teased, the event will feature a number of different "stages" that are actually wave-based survival maps. Each stage has a number of ally teams you can take into them, as well as a number of maps that they are comprised of. If an ally is defeated they can't be used for the rest of that stage, and if a whole team is knocked out then you can take another team, until you run out of teams you can take into the stage or the stage is beaten.

When you finish a stage, you get ranked on your performance and get a number of points from it. These points then tally up to grant a number of rewards, including orbs, seals, and even a 4* and 5* "Marth".

There'll also be heroes that grant bonus points that you can use to help climb the tally faster, and IS is also looking to see if the whole community can gather a billion points within the first 5 days in order to get some more bonus rewards.

I think this sounds pretty neat, and I'm looking forward to checking it out!

So, the Tempest Trials are now active. Good number of different stage options to challenge, and point targets up to 99999 (with the bulk of them being orbs). "Marth" is an interesting pull, though, since this version seems to only get her sword chain and no other skills at all. You have to use skill transfers to build her.

Also, with the way the stages work (they're all 20 stamina, and you don't get clear bonuses other then points), there's no reason to not just go straight to the highest difficulty you think you can reasonably clear.

I've had a couple of my 5* characters randomly give me 500 feathers which is pretty cool!

I need to play Tempest Trials some more, apparently you get Masked Marth after a certain score level?

Yeah, there's a 4* at 6000 and a 5* at 30000. She's interesting because she actually has no skills other then the Falchion line, so you have to build her entirely using skill transfers.

I'm... probably going to stop at 6000 or so. I'd kind of like to get 20000 for the Breath of Life 1 seal, but grinding points is a super slog, and I need a deeper pool of characters to be able to handle the Lunatic tier stages consistently.

Ha, I like that Gaius' special attack line is "it's too damn hot".

I ended up getting a Gaius after my 100 stocked up orbs. Which, well. He's fine, but I wanted Tiki or Robin instead since I'm a little light in those colours.
