I made this it’s own post because I always just write too much, honestly. You can check antsims93’s post if you want my not-so-in depth explanation as to why I have fatal smoke on Mareeta. I get it. Everyone on Reddit trashed the idea. But I don’t care. I will make use of it. I use her more than any other sword unit, even after getting Ayra and giving her DC + Ike’s A & B skills, Larcei forma, and having a ton of other swordmaster superunits. So trust me. I WILL get its worth and more.
I went farther in Hall of Forms than I ever have in the first few days, I think. I just beat Chamber 21 and I’m all out of stamina except for the 1 stamina refill. And these are the results so far.
Extra ish (going in many different directions): I’d have more skills or merges if I didn’t end up replacing so many skills, especially Tanya’s bow. Mareeta is the one I’m picking up, so I’m gonna focus on her more now. I could use a better B skill. Her A skill is a decent side option if I ever need it in a situation that doesn’t call for Distant Counter or Atk/Spd Solo. Brazen Atk/Spd 4 gives the highest stat bonus out of any other skills that she can inherit. We do have menace skills now. Part of me wished she wouldn’t be on a HoF until that was in the pool. I will never fodder off Fallen Female Morgan.
I grabbed Brazen 4 for my Olwen long ago and she does pretty okay with it whenever I feel like using her. She just isn’t super tanky. You know who is? Mareeta.
I’ve seen people say brazen atk/spd 4 sucks, but the threshold is a bit better and the stat boosts are much higher versus a solo 4 or push 4 giving just 1 or 2 extra points to each stat compared to the tier 3. And people still keep putting Brazen Atk/Spd 3 on their units despite this. And then we even use Celica’s Brazen refine.
To be honest, I think they were generous to give it such a big stat boost with the larger threshold, and if people had given it more of a chance, we would’ve seen it on more units. Now we’re stuck with only tier 3 in the regular pool and it’ll never be in divine manuals.
I’m just over here wishing they’d put Brazen 4 on more units. They’ve given worse to New Heroes. Maybe it could have had an extra effect to make it more “worth it”, but it was still generous. And I think this year, they’ll probably give at least 1 or 2 new units each a different brazen 4, even if people hardly ever use the brazen 3s that aren’t atk/spd. I would if they weren’t all 5 star locked. You bet your right ear I would. I’m just beating a dead horse at this point though. So I’ll stop. Lol.
Mareeta can’t inherit a Catch, sadly Or I’d give her that over this in a heartbeat.
Now if that isn’t a wall of text. (It’s not my worst, but it’s why I made the post haha)
So, her build here is pretty niche, I know. Even excluding the B skill. I can’t say whether or not I’d use the 2 skills together, or this specific build. I’ll definitely have to play around with her.
What are your builds, finished or not? Who you buyin? I think most people gave Mareeta Distant Counter by now (except me. It took me forever to get extra DC fodder, it’s hard to come by and she’s been fine without it. But she’s the next one I’m giving it to. I have 2 spares from Divine Codes I prefer getting something else in HoF), so what other A skills are you giving her in the HoF?
