Close and Distant Counter are not unique skills. It's just that Takumi and Hector are the only characters with them, and they're GENERALLY going to be better then whoever else you toss that onto.

That said, though! Lightning Breath has inherent Distant Counter and CAN be transferred to other dragons! I have a spare Nowi that I want to feed to either FCorrin or Fae to give them Lightning Breath instead, but the + is locked behind needing 5*.

Can you transfer a different color, but same type of weapon, like dragon breaths or tomes? I mean it's pretty obvious you can't for the classic weapon triangle.

Tomes are locked to the triangle. Breath is not.

How do you know which skills transfer? Do you have to be a certain level, or have the skills already or something?

1) The consumed unit has to be able to learn the skill at their current rank. So if the unit needs to be 5* to learn the skill, they have to be 5* to transfer it.
2) If it is a weapon skill, the base unit has to be able to wield that type of weapon. No giving swords to a lancer, or green tomes to a red mage, or anything like that.
3) Healing skills that staff users get are considered weapon skills, and can only be transferred to other healers.
4) Named weapons, such as Minerva's Hauteclere, cannot be transferred. Nor can Dance or Sing.

I believe that's everything.

I decided to start poking at this again since they added the skill inheritance mechanic and the game's starting to feel more fleshed out, plus this newbie starter event thing and I need some kind of mobile fucking around game.

I suspect I should max out the castle EXP multiplier first, then focus on summonings? Is this newest Blazing Sword banner worth pulling on? Jaffar is pretty rad and Rebecca is adorbs but is it worth spending orbs on?

With how XP-heavy the game is, I would say you should get a decent crew of heroes first, and then max out the castle.


Special TIME LIMITED early shot at Michalis tomorrow morning, but don't worry if you miss it. He'll return for proper on the 24th. Where there's a community challenge for beating him up.

I managed to get in on the 3* version and clear it, but the 4* version has a tough trick that I'll have to build around. The main thing is that Michalis has a buddy flyer with him that knows Drag Back, so you need to one-shot it or else he's gonna drag you back and Michalis is gonna get you.

Also, in just 45 minutes, the community managed to blow past the challenge targets. Go team!

IS is just rolling in events and quests. There's new set of Helping Hand quests for KOing foes with every unit category that each award 1500 shards.

And, phew. Well. Now time to try out the new bonus hero list. I'll have to hope this new loadout will work well enough. Early tests have been positive, and I've started doing Advanced arena matches. Even managed to rank last season, which was cool!

And now here's ANOTHER set of quests for doing Lunatic stages with conditions, for another large batch of orbs.

Also the rewards for beating up Michalis so handily during the LIGHTNING ROUND got handed out. Apparently it's been confirmed that if you cleared any of his stages then, you won't get another copy of Michalis on those stages when he returns tomorrow.

Yeah, those rewards and new quests are nice. I'm just saving orbs for the next banner at this point. I would love to get Ninian so I have a stronger dancer than Olivia, but I'm not expecting it.

I've been logging in every day to get the bonuses and do some arena or something, but haven't been redeeming anything.

I now have 82 orbs. Hoping the next round has cool Path of Radiance people.

I think I've done my last set of pulls for this banner, and will just save up for next time. I did get a 3* +Atk/-Res Adult Tiki, though, and might put in the work to boost her to 5*. That also puts me at having a dragon of each colour.

I've had exceptionally good luck with this banner (five-star Lyn, Chrom, Hinoka, Nowi, and Rebecca), so I'll be sad to see it go.

I still need a decent green physical attacker. I've been saving up my feathers to promote Nino up to five stars, but my best axe-user is a four-star Camilla, who seems really terrible.

Same. I have a bunch of orbs stockpiled and I'm almost tempted to dump them all for Ninian but like...I don't really want any of the other Focus Heroes.

So, the Michalis battle is now properly live, with it's typical special banner. This time the focus heroes are Eliwood, Minerva, Gordin, and Selena. I find Gordin being on the list amusing because Michalis' special is to not be weak to arrows.

I beat the level 30 Micalis fight after a slight tweak. Basically, just bait him on the left side with a sword unit (or something else that won't get killed by the lance fighter and him combining attacks) and fill in 2 other triangle slots, with a good ranged as your 4th. For me, I went into it with Peri, Lucina, Jaffar (all 5*) and Camilla (4*) and sussed out that strategy with 2 attempts.

Level 40 is a bit harder, but the stats aren't so bad. I really hate that Micalis gets an unfairly huge boost to his 5 turn skill, though. Starts out at 1 turn before activation...

I'm biting the bullet with full-cost pulls aiming just for blue runes praying for Ninian, and taking a red if there aren't any blues to pick because I like Karel anyway. I've seen fewer blue runes than anything else since I started and it's really odd. But then I just pulled a -SPD, +ATK Karel so... wow I guess.

I am kind of astonished at how terrifyingly strong they made him.

my first three pulls on this banner had zero blue runes among them

Even though I have mellowed out about this game's orb summons, I still wish you could see the spread before you commit any orbs, and back out/shuffle it.

In the Ursula event I didn't have the firepower levelled to take on 4*, so I'm glad this time I got my Nino to high 30s in time for Lunatic Michalis. Dance + Draw Back was super handy for the "no one can die" win condition.
(On top of Dance already being super handy.)

I did a random pull because I had 82 orbs. Got a second Lucina. She's going to give Aether to Nino.

Three more updates have been added to the plan for the April update: You will be able to adjust starting positions, lower rarity characters will gain more XP, and thus level to 20 quicker, and stamina will be raised to 99. The last one seems like a pointless, or at least misdirected change, but overall some solid QoL improvements.

I am super excited for the starting positions change. Stamina of 99 is nice since the lunatic story levels use so dang much. I'm all for it!
