Awesome, thanks. Dunno if I'll ever be compelled to play this again, but it's good to know I'll still have my handful of five star waifus and five billion f!Corrins if I do come back to it.

Lyn seems kinda ridiculous for a mounted unit. Wow.

I'm probably going to grab Lucina.

If I get Lucina then I'll be one unit away from having an all Lucina team.

Same for me.

While Lyn is totally a rockin' mounted archer, I already have a good range of archers and mounted? So I'll probably not pick that. I'm currently leaning towards Ike because while I would ALSO like to be 1 Lucina away from Lucina Emblem, I literally only have 4 5* green units, and I have 10 5* Blues and Reds. 10 each.

For some reason this game keeps giving me Camilla. I was hoping for Amelia on my last pull of the Sacred Stones banner, but... nope, I have 4 Camillas now, and the only one that isn't garbage is +Speed -Def. Do I feed the others to her or do I save them for Brave Axe+ inheritance?

This game keeps trying to bribe me into coming back, but I'm wiser now; I know it's still gacha.

I wish I was so wise.

This game pulled me back in with all the recent banners. I had been frustrated by my inability to pull a decent Green, but now I have Green Ike AND Hector.

My current (once Ike is leveled up) team is Saber, Reinhardt, Klein and Ike (G). I'm honestly considering slapping Hector's Distant Counter on Saber to make him an especially annoying unit for any distant attackers to deal with.

So I really don't get the point of Sacae's Blessing. Sword/Axe/Lance not being able to counterattack would be great, if it wasn't on a ranged unit.

I suppose it's mostly useful just for trumping foes with Distant Counter or equivalent abilities

Yeah, it helps shut down units like Xander, Hector, Ryoma, and Camus, who have Distant Counter, which is itself a hard counter to ranged units. Especially colourless ranged units, as they tend to be exceptionally fragile.

Default Might not even play again so this luck is wasted on me

Jumped back in after months because I want a free unit, realized I had 60 orbs saved up, did a bunch of pulls and ended up with Roy and Lyn. Geez! So... Lucina or Ike?

Brave Lucina is basically classic Lucina with better defense and physical buff potential in lieu of built-in dragonslayer and Renewal 2. I haven't finished leveling her, but I'm sure she's a great unit. Ike appears to be designed to counter Brave weapons and Rider/Flier Emblem teams.

This new event (free Lyn for my first 5* archer) managed to get me to reinstall, and I've been knocking out the last few months' worth of events. They've added some fun wrinkles with the multi-team stuff.

I'd happily trade you some if I could. Green is the only color that I'm well-stocked in 5* units on, with 3 axes and 4 green mages. And they're all (except Merric) actually good, too. Going by the wiki arena tier list, my 6th-best green is better than either of my 2 reds or blues.

My understanding is that any character can now marry any other character.

I don't have many 5* characters but the ones I have are pretty solid, enough for a couple of teams. This is a fun game to come back to after missing months of content because I'm no longer stressed about trying to finish everything. It's too late!

Would it be better to horde all the feathers I can and only use them to upgrade characters to 5*, or spend 2,000 to upgrade my 3* Gunter so someone can inherit Hone Cavalry to go with my shiny Roy and Lyn?

I personally would only bother promoting someone to 5* if they had a legendary weapon. Meanwhile, if you're above Level 10 in the Arena you can make back the cost of promoting a skill fodder unit every week - and that's assuming you don't do any quests, voting gauntlets or tempest trials to get more than that.

Hard to say without knowing the rest of what you're working with. Cavalry teams are incredibly strong, especially if you have a mounted mage available, so enabling that is definitely a worthwhile investment of feathers.

As for what to upgrade to 5*, legendary weapons are great but I'd just focus on making sure the character is one that fills a niche you need long term and has good stat modifiers.

As luck would have it, I have a 4* Reinhardt, who at 5* has a Brave Tome, Vantage, and Goad Cavalry, which would go nicely with the Lyn and Roy I got with my insane gacha luck. I'd say that's worth 20,000 feathers, especially if Cavalry teams are the bees knees as you say.

I ended up going with Ike for my free Brave summon, because the only 5* Green I had is Fae, who's great but it's nice to have options.

I also found I could coast through a lower tier of Tempest Trials Mini using Lyn and Azura (I have a 5* Azura, because this game loves me for some reason), so now I also have a 5* Masked Marth... who I'll probably never use because Masked Marth has no skills.

I've got a bunch of 5* people but I'm too lazy to figure out if anyone is better than who I'm using so I've pretty much had the same team for 6+ months:

Yeah, those three, plus Gunter or another green cavalry of your choice that inherits Hone Cavalry, will steamroll arena or any non-inferno single battle.

Some of it depends on the individual stat bonuses and penalties they each have, but Hector (especially since you don't have a green on your team) and brave Lucina are the main ones that jump out at me.

Masked Marth's gimmick is being a free Lucina (same stats and everything) without skills - which at least is better than the other two Tempest Trials-exclusive units. I got decent mileage out of the 4* one I got back in June thanks to lucking into some good skills to pass on to her, and I've been saving a Lon'qu (Vantage fodder) for when I get 5* Masked Marth later today.

Outside of Luna, Lucina's default kit is nothing special, anyway. Masked Marth is pretty amazing for a freebie.

Tobin has a pretty decent niche, but Clive is even more boring than he is in Shadows of Valentia. I'm guessing Nephenee is going to be the next Tempest Unit, so I'm looking forward to that.

I missed Tobin because I sat that Tempest Trial out, but now I regret it. I want to make a Robin, Robin, Robin, and Tobin team. Hopefully he'll show up again.
