Just curious about those characters you didn’t know coming into Heroes having never played their own games but have come to love and what aspects caught your attention. Thinking in a looks and personality sense, not in terms of simply being strong.
Basically a thread to gush about Heroes-found favourites.
My first instance of this was Myrrh, who I have now adopted and will not accept anyone trying to claim my darling daughter is not real. When her banner came out, she was the first flying dragon and came with good a good weapon and stats so I went in for this cute little stranger and got her +Def -Atk. Her cuteness grew ever greater the more I used her and her voice lines are absolutely darling. She also stalked me as she got to +7 by herself shortly before her refine and I then +10ed her on subsequent banners. Then came Halloween with her gorgeous costume and adorable lines, her special line Boo! has me squeeing every time about how precious my daughter is.
Only just put summoner support back on my baby so add another 2 Atk/Spd/Def. She works with speed built Nowi trading Hone for Fortify buffs.
Pretty lucky with her forma skills and she has DC/SF from Nagi too.
From the same banner as Myrrh as it happens. I loved her art from the start with the great figure, the playful twirling of her hair, short skit and thigh-high boots. Then came the personality. She’s says a lot that sounds like she’s elevating herself but the way she says it it sounds like she’s just having a lot fun playing a character and is positively giddy in her line about being considered a hero in Askr. Then her Halloween alt does the hot mad scientist look superbly and her lines are magnificent, Ama monster. She seems to me that if she hadn’t been a princess, she’d be amazing looking after and entertaining young kids.
I know form skills are rarely seen but I find it works great on her. I wanted her to be dual phase and didn’t want her self healing to be working only to counter a push skill. On Dagr’s abyssal, she killed half the enemies herself and ended the fight at full health.
She’s also one of the reasons I like doing 4 star merges. I got her off focus the month after her release as +Spd -Atk and as I had her prf, merged her to 4+10. It was using that merge that cost no orbs or feathers that I grew to love her whereas if I’d only had that -Atk 5 star copy, I might never have used her. Then when my original list of merge projects from games I knew was running out, she got uplifted to 5+10, got some good fodder and is awesome.
The previous two were parental and platonic loves, this one is romantic and (caugh)xual. She is my favourite OC due to her noble demon status, she knows everything she does is for evil but knows there is no choice as she and her dear sister cannot escape their father. She tires her best to spare people as she is shown to be governing Nifl fairly after it falls to Surtr’s army and is a good person stuck in an awful position. Then came her summer alt where I truly fell in love (and lust, I’ll be honest). That is the best swimwear design I’ve ever seen. After falling in love there, I decided to merge her new year grail alt and she is awesome which cemented that love.
Didn’t have great luck with her forma as I’d wanted a player phase build but her refine has helped her a lot.
She ate a Geese, Summer Sylvain, Edelgard and Shinon which I think still has her in 1st place for rare units sacrificed.
Tried to merge her but 1000 orbs for +1 over her debut and dual special heroes banners ended that hope. The further two merges were from orb packs.
Honorary mention as I’ve kind of fallen for her summer alt. Never used her base form as I merged Setsuna but I love her cute summer look and her voice but the main point that got me is that her movement line It’s so hot today has what I interpret as a little lusty growl at the end, though whether the hot thing she’s eying is Freyja or Freyr depends on the setting of your shipping goggles (mine are on yuri). She’s my next grail project having just done Leonie.
