The latest HoF has a dancer unit that didn’t come with the dance skill, which was weird because all dancers come with it at level 1, no matter 1 star or 5 star. If you are unlucky like me, all you ever see are Rally skills. I can’t help but think that my torches could have been spent rolling on other things, because this dance/sing skill should already be on a dancer/singer unit. But then again, on other units i only ever see sabotage skills on low res units, boots skills, seals and more rallys.
So as we know, the skills RNG part is pretty much like a lucky draw: You are shown expensive cars, mobile phones as possible rewards, but chances are you will draw toasters and fancy mugs. Too bad they say, better luck next time they say. But wait, you cant even keep what you draw either. To do that, you have to pay the price equivalent to that of a big house.
Why do people spend money on this again?
Moving to Discussion because the OP didn’t read the message on how to use sub-categories even though they had to delete said message.
RNG can be rude
No Sing on Bridal Ninian to begin with is odd, but oh well. It’s not the end of the world.
And you’ll automatically be able to learn Sing if you decide to use a Forma Soul on Ninian. Forma units always get to learn their normal base kit, as well as the skills you gave them. So you probably want an expensive dual rally over Sing. :feh_legion:
Dance is considered a prf so you’ll have a higher chance of getting it. And yeah maybe you got unlucky but you don’t need dance for hall of forms. Almost every hall of forms before this one had a mediocre or trash unit that needed to be carried so what’s different about this one? Also Ninian is still viable without dance because she targets res which a lot of melee units lack.
I understand the frustration of having a typical dancer unit and having to RNG for the Dance skill. It just adds additional possible aggravation on top of a game mode that is already extremely RNG dependent relative to other game modes. IS arguably made the mode important by putting Divine Codes as rewards in basically every chamber. So every torch/stamina counts. If you have to spend extra stamina/torches just to attain something that seems like it should be simple to get, that perception is going to sour your opinion on the mode overall.
I’d argue that IS dangling the Formal Soul pack in front of us is even more of a scam, tbh. Especially with no way to get IVs for the chosen Formas and no way to inherit skills from them. But even then, one way or another they got us playing the mode heavily and thus keeping us as routine players who continue to play the game, so it’s a win for them no matter what.
People spend money on this game because they deserve that a game like this (who has to pay for artists, voice actors, developers, etc) should be supported - or tell IS that Fire Emblem (as a whole) has financial backing, thus giving us a really good game, and ideally more Fire Emblem stuff in the west. - I’ve also bought monthly packs ( etc, usually equipped with feedback, etc) thanking them for the stuff that we DO get as F2P players for the most part. sometimes its so you can try to get as many 5*s (guaranteed want aside), sometimes you get hosed, but i will never, ever understand why people still question why some people spend money on this game. (as if - if no one spent money, this game would have lasted 4 years. if people didn’t spend money we wouldn’t have the game).
now to continue
You don’t need dance. this is the first dancer we’ve had in HOF and i’m pretty sure everyone got along without one thus far. (to be fair, i got dance on the first try. provided if my Ninian gets GREAT stuff - distant guard, silver goblet (orders something) she’s gonna stay where she is as i’d rather build Fiora for options later. I’m pretty sure you will get dance eventually and if you don’t while that is pooptastic, maybe try some other fun builds. Last month I kept getting Spd based stuff for Cecilia. What is she gonna do with Daring Fighter? and the lethal carrort with a spd refine. I don’t know - but i laughed and made it work until i got a good option instead, not cop a fit.
well people were playing this before - and i know a lot of people were wishing they could keep the units that they built. like. sometimes i don’t think IS can win anything. if they do something fun. it’s “Why.” if they make it so you can keep the fun thing. it’s “a scam.” like honestly, you get to get a pretty decent unit with really good skills, that you can keep and merge up - and the only downside is that you can’t get a stacked unit and not fodder them off. well like duh. I can only speak for me, but i would take that trade off every day of the week. (even if it was a unit that i had a great IV for)
