“But Help_Me,” I hear you saying, “don’t you have a +10 Sothis?”
Yes, on my alt, where I had all those delicious story orbs. This is on my main, which has long since gone through those (it’s been around since near launch). I had to hoard these orbs myself.
With that out of the way, lets get to it!
FE7 was the first FE I played, a long time ago now (maybe a decade or so). At the time I had just gotten a new smartphone, and put a GBA emulator on it. I quickly realized that playing platformers of any kind was practically impossible, so I couldn’t play some of my favorite games (Kirby). I put pokemon on, since I loved those games as well, but I needed more than just emerald (I had already beaten it, after all). I was looking on a ROM site, and lo and behold, FE7 was one of the top rated games. “Why not?” I thought, and downloaded it. From there, that single game, I played the rest of the GBA games, going so far as to use my meager technology skills to somehow patch an English language translation into the FE6 ROM (took a bit of time, and I’m still a little surprised I got it working). After that, I still wanted more, so I started my slow quest to play all mainline FE games (I made a thread when I finished; it’s a little outdated, but the topic is linked on my profile).
So back to Lyn. Lyn is one of my favorite FE characters, and it’s honestly a little hard to pinpoint why. She isn’t that interesting or unique compared to a lot of other FE characters, but I love her personality, design, and story. It may not be unique or particularly powerful, but it’s very well done nonetheless. She was the first character I encountered in any FE game, and the first one who’s story I saw; that alone is worth a lot to me, for how much I will always remember that. In FEH, she was one of the first 5* I ever rolled (along with Takumi, so hard carry there). I used her as much as I could, despite her mediocre ability in FEH (and really bad refine). Nonetheless, I never really stopped using her. For all these reasons, I really wanted her to be my first 5* exclusive on my main account, who I really had to save for. Aaaannnnnd…
Let’s see what we got!

We did it boys!!!
Anyway, if you enjoyed this or like my Lyn, I have included my friend code below (IGN is Emet):
I also have a few other builds planned, with other weapons like Wo Dao and Slaying edge (or Unbound Blade if I can get a copy)
Now, I promised a bonus, didn’t I?
So, I had a lot of orbs left over, and I have decided I want to harness the power of the Lyn emblem. Why not, it’s fun. So I dropped the rest on the DSH banner for Lynja copies (I also really wanted a Tikian).
Orb count: 799
H!Tiki (1st copy)
Zihark (5*) (1st copy)
4* special y!Tiki (merge)
4* special Innes (1st copy)
4* special Ike (merge, at like +7 through only pitybreakers at this point)
Lachesis (5*, keep)
4* special Innes (again? no fodder, so merge)
Ninja Laevatein (1st copy, -atk, RIP)
4* special Jaffar (merge)
H!Tiki (merge to fix speed bane)
I also still have the free copy from AHR, but I’m keeping it since I’m using her on both AR seasons, so until I have the rest of the merges, that one will stay as is.
Hope you enjoyed this, I certainly had fun
