It took my entire stockpile of 250 orbs, but I eventually got Hector. I tried to snipe green, but took blue when there weren't any greens. Overall, ended up with:
  • L!Hector (+HP -SPD)
  • V!Lyn (+ATK -HP. Big upgrade from my -ATK +RES version)
  • V!Lyn (+ATK -SPD.)
  • L!Ephraim (+DEF -RES)
  • Morgan (-ATK +DEF)
  • Myrrh (neutral. Trying to decide which to keep between this one and my existing +ATK - DEF version)
  • V!Roy (+ATK -DEF)

Pretty good results, all told.

My one red orb on the new Voting Gauntlet banner was a +Def -Atk Zelgius. Yeah okay, that seems better than my old +HP -Def one, it just means he only has a 49 Atk on his turn, 55 on enemy phase. Only a 49...

I finally got Hector

- ATK, +SPD



I realize that he's still viable, and that he's still a beast—that's not the point.

-Atk is actually not bad for him, since even with a bane Atk, LHector is still in the top 10 for attack. +Spd is definitely not that useful, though.

I've ended up, so far, with a +Res/-Atk and a +Def/-Res LHector, and unless I get another before the banner ends I think I'm going to stick to the +Res one. Might as well shore up a weakness, especially since the hit to Atk barely matters. Just don't know if I want to +1 him or transfer Distant Counter to anyone. I just... don't think I have anyone else I want to give Distant Counter to at the moment, after I gave it to Amelia with my last Hector dupe.

Also just managed to get a neutral VLyn, which puts me at 3/5 for Lyns so far.

Coincidentally, I got a +Def/-Spd Vanilla Hector from the free summon off Hector and Matthew's banner. The prophecy is fulfilled. I finally have the unit that I voted for when the game first launched.

Spent another 200-ish orbs on greens chasing Hector before the banner expired (since I could really use a green tank to complement vike/fjorm), nothing. Time to start saving for the next legendary banner, I guess!

I had two green orbs on my freebie pull, the second one was original Hector, who was then promptly devoured by my A!Tiki +10 so her new Breath Weapon can attack at range.

I was also tempted to feed him to my Y!Tiki or my F!Corrin.

I spent around 80 orbs on the legendary banner and there were almost no green orbs the whole time. The only thing of value that I ended up getting was Legendary Ephraim, which I already have...

On the other hand, this new Ephraim is +Attack, -Res. My previous was +Speed -Def. I liked having the extra speed to prevent enemy followups, but 58 unbuffed attack is pretty insane. I may have to switch to this new one.

Holy carp, that Tiki has a built in Steady Breath Breath, that's nuts.

Hm. There are now enough Tikis and Camillas to run full teams of them. A Camilla team in particular will be reasonably well rounded.

In other news, Titania's new weapon is really, really disappointing. It's a 16 Mt Emerald Axe with built in Res Tactics if you refine it. I gave her a Poleaxe from Gerome a while back and I think I'm just going to keep having her use that...

Camilla becomes the second character to have all the colours. Now she just needs colourless to catch up with Lyn.

Also inherent Vantage weapons is an interesting gimmick for this seasonal batch.

Also Takumi. Original, Fallen, New Year, and now Summer. All of them colorless.

I am also disappointed with Titania's new axe, I was hoping she'd get one that was the axe equivalent of Wing SpearSword or Rhomphia. Guess I'll just give her a Slaying Axe+ and let those sweet Iceburg specials rain down.

The problem with these mediocre exclusive refines is that it's really hard to justify spending limited divine dew on them. And if you don't refine this thing, it's effectively just an Emerald Axe with +4 attack.

It makes me worry for Seth's inevitable exclusive weapon.

It's Desperation, not Vantage. (They also all have 35 Spd at least, which means they can make the best of it)

That new Tactics Drills mode is fun. Definitely looking forward to new maps on it.

Well, that was lucky. Got a +Atk/-Spd General Hector, and a +Atk/-Def Green Mage Olwen. On one summon! It's about time I got a Hector, dang it!

I finished up the July quests and the Bound Hero quests and managed to nab a Summer Camilla with the orbs. She's -Speed, which is pretty bad considering her weapon. I might give her Brazen Atk/Spd to compensate.

That said, the Botticelli reference in her special art is pretty neat, and not something I expected.

FEH Channel was tonight, lots of info and orbs and banners coming til the end of August.

Banners like this one



Libra's the likely demote, Olivia gets the sword version of PA!Azura's axe, and Triangle Affinity is somehow now a status effect.

AKIRA's new Olivia artwork looks like it had a lot more work put into it than launch Olivia. He must have had more time/money this time around.
