Favorite Samson v Arran Archetypes

One of the more memorable archetypes in FE to me is the Samson & Arran one where choosing one path eliminates you from going down another and recruiting certain characters.

So, I was just curious to see which you guys preferred based off of character, gameplay, or design if you don’t know them :fgo_ishtaridgaf:

I put the polls in the order of how likely people were to know the game btw this is all just for fun

Dont make me choose between Bartre and Echidna, both are really good.

Yes :feh_ohgod:

I love them both, but Elffin >>>> Larum for me, so it’s hard to not go the Bartre route

I’ll be honest, for most of these I didn’t care. There were a few I felt strongly about, such as Echidna. Lalum was only chosen because she’s the Echidna route. I usually get the Geitz route, but I prefer Wallace as a returning character. Juno only because of Triangle attack, would never use either of them (though she has nice supports with the other pegasi).

Chose Hoshido, but neither is the correct option. I don’t like fates, and going your own way in revelations seems the best to me.

yeah elphin is better than larum, but Echidna is the main reason i pick her route, but i have done both routes multiple times.

I’ve always gone for Saias instead of Ced in Thracia, but with that being Ced - It’s because I can play Ced in FE 4 and not Saias. As for choosing which one, I like better overall… It’s difficult and I feel fake to Ced because I love him and Lewyn’s my fave

But I’ll go Saias to even it out :feh_arvisboneappetite:

The correct answer isn’t Sais or Ced, but Foresetti

Also I chose Dedue, because he’s the best retainer, but BE is probably my favorite house.

2 Likes

I can’t choose most of these because I haven’t played :e7_ravisob:

I do think Dedue was the better retainer, for me personally, for 3H

Conquest was also better then Birthright for me. I liked the characters more (gee I wonder why) and I liked the difficulty of Conquest more

Edit: Forgot to talk about Echoes. I’ve picked up both Sonya and Deen but I prefer Sonya over Deen because Sonya has the better character between the two as my personal choice and I just have a thing for mages lol

Iucharba is like Gen 2 Lex, Iuchar is a daft romantic.
Other than that, Saias, Elffin, Dedue and Arran are all among my favourites from their casts so it’s not difficult to choose.

I do think Iucharba has way better chemistry with Larcei than Iuchar but I still like Iuchar better outside of that, he has Sain vibes

Ngl I accidentally read this as samus v aran at first

The only thing I have against Larcei/Iucharba is that I always have Lex as her dad and it feels weird.

It hurts so much that the only way to get Amalda is taking the A route to get Sleuf. She’s the best Friege knight and an amazing character overall but I prefer the B route by a long shot.

Also Sleuf > Miranda
