I’ll use this as an introduction
So, you can probably tell by this I don’t like
my son’s Forrest’s stat distribution. At all. And I have my reasons. Actually, they aren’t ‘reasons’ but a reason, who has a name and fluffy hair.
I really like Mercie, sure, she’s not my favorite 3H girl, but she holds a special place in my heart
like most BL characters, tbh
So as soon as she was demoted I started building her up. The thing is her speed is… there, you could say. It exists, but that’s it. I’m the kind of person who really min/maxes speed, if I’m going to work on it then I want that unit to have a decent chance to consistently double. So if I want a character to be speedy, you could say I want them to double every last one of them.
Because of this, having only 38 speed at max merges and dragonflowers (with a speed boon) and seeing how speedy was becoming the meta, I just decided to give up and work on her attack so that she could hit hard (and increase her support capabilities!) and that’s how mine ended up looking like that
So, I had a ‘defensive’ infantry healer, I needed an offensive cavalry healer, and I even have atk/spd push 4 fodder ready. I know Nanna is a very good option, but I haven’t played Tharcia and I prioritize characters I like over good units
And now I find myself in this situation: I want to merge Forrest, and I probably will because he’s my precious baby boi and I love his art, but his speed is just a big flat no. I’m also merging Mercedes, I really like her and that hasn’t changed
What should I do?
- Speedy Mercedes: she might double some Gen 1 units
- Only slow units are allowed to be fast: speedy Forrest
- Save the fodder and build them both defensively
I’ll only do a fast Forrest if he gets a speed superboon tho
