It’s finally here! I’m not disappointed and it’s such a huge upgrade. How about you guys, do you feel the same?
Also to note: this isn’t meant to be the definitive B!Micaiah refine thread, but there were none as of me beginning this. So if anyone was going to make a post with the same topic, it’s fine. Not that you need my permission. Or if you just want to post Brave Micaiah/refine related stuff here, that’s great too! c:
Side story／my CYL3 pick
I chose Brave Micaiah when I returned to Feh whenever I did in 2019 or 2020, but I missed the actual banner. Brave Micaiah is literally the only CYL3 unit I have lol. And only 2 of the… 6 extra copies I’ve summoned were on focus banners. Both on the following CYL Hero Fest, and I didn’t even spend many orbs, so I think I quit while I was ahead instead of trying to get the other 3.
I’ve foddered off 2 and if you include the one extra I have now, that adds up to the 6.
Side story 2／Luck? or... Fate?
I almost wanna say I wish I picked Alm, but then maybe fate would have changed and I wouldn’t have been so extremely lucky to have so many Brave Micaiahs. Next to fallen units who gravitate towards me the most, she’s definitely the unit I’ve pulled the most copies of since her debut. If I didn’t kill those 2 copies of her, with this upcoming new power banner, I’d probably be able to +10. She’d be my first 5☆ exclusive to be +10, and first overall. It’ll just take more time…
Surely if fate has been slowly but surely gifting me with Brave Micaiahs over the years, mostly as free summons or within 3 to 3.25% pity rates, then it’s only a matter of time. Possibly CYL Fest next year is the moment I’ll reach 5☆+10, unless I have sheer luck and pull off something amazing before then, especially in the New Power banner. Either way, I will post when it happens… We shall see!
The important stuff:
I’ve had +atk since CYL Fest, and the +res Mica was the last one I summoned, I kept her and trained her up without wasting any skill points to learn skills the other already has. (it also works to burn sp for inherited skills in case I don’t use her). I’ve been holding on to her in case her refine wants the alternate IV more.
I’m at a fork in the road and I don’t know if I should go left or right. So… which direction (IV) should I walk and why? Left(+atk) or Right(+res)?
I know attack is a superboon, and she now gets the virtually free follow-up (with exceptions ofc ofc) so having high offense while also having the effectiveness, is desirable. On the other path, her attack is getting boosted a ton, and it’s already fairly high, so I’m not losing much if I switch to resistance, am I? I’ll definitely be using glacies or iceberg in every build.
I want to try to pull another Winter Altina for the Unity skill. I also have an extra Plegian Tharja whom can inherit Swift Sparrow 3 + Spd/Res Rein. I have no Trace skills and don’t think I’d fodder anyone who comes with the skill anyways since it’s mostly on Duos or seasonals that I wish I had…
With all that in mind, I’ll quote myself
“which direction (IV) should I walk and why? Left(+atk) or Right(+res)?”
Does Mica’s refine want +res more, and are her added offenses more than enough to choose it over +atk? Or would switching be a grave mistake?
+atk merge+4, DF+3 Mica:
+res merge+4, DF+3 Mica:
(I could check the feh unit builder to see +10 values I suppose. I’m just feeling kinda lazy. I’ll do it though.)
Final Edit: Okay I made them.
Still not too sure which I like more. The bonus is for the 5 missing Dragonflowers on the Unit Builder. Can’t really add HP though, but it’s just 1 so… Close enough!
