Well, I’m back again with a question surrounding my indecision and looking to gather opinions on my conundrum that can hopefully help me sort my own thoughts out.
So I got royally f_cked on the new banner. I mean a good several hundred orbs for 6 5*s, and the only banner unit I got was the Spark. I picked a Lilith, thinking I could still have gotten a Gustav because I never learn my f_cking lesson that RNGsus hates me with a burning passion.
But I’m going on a tangent. Basically, I have a lot of units I think could utilize Lilith’s SPD Smoke and I need help sorting out my thoughts one who should get the single copy I’ve got. These are my top contenders, as they are as of this moment. Some builds are still in-progress
Say’ri is one of my favorite characters and I love her. She’s been massively outclassed lately, though, and this could bring her back a bit where she’s fallen off.
Lucina’s another character I really love and she’s my canon wife for Robin. I’ve been meaning to really commit to updating her, but haven’t really had anything that I could really use to update her with.
Marth? is F2P Lucina, so that one’s just as much, if not more of, a contender.
Easily my most versatile swordswoman, she can fill a number of roles. Since her weapon gives her the Firesweep effect, SPD Smoke helps her cover for the fact that she can’t counter by doubling down on her mitigation effects for…64% mitigation? I think? I may be doing my math wrong, I’m doing it in my head.
One of my favorite swordies, but far more situational; SPD Smoke gives my Byleth the mitiagtions a speedster like her wants without sacrificing her Windsweep strat for her Sword of the Creator.
I try to build the Askr trio simply to have as a fallback for Arena seasons when I don’t have any of the bonus units invested in. That way, I always have at least one bonus unit ready to go. Given that she runs Spurn, doubling down on the mitigation with a grand total of +30 SPD (if using her three Bond skills). 63 SPD is not bad.
Love his design, and he’s quite effective in his role as a physical bruiser. Admittedly, he’s not topping my list of candidates; but he is a viable option.
An older initiator that is very speedy, making good use of the Smoke skill and the mitigation both. Also, she can make use of the Catch skill from Lilith as well (I believe I have a spare Lyre laying around). Problem is that she shares a similar role to my Masquerade Elidgan, one of my most-used and most-invested units who runs a Ninja Yari and does…a lot of damage.
One of my favorite units, albeit one of my least used these days. I’ve been working on revitalizing her, starting with the Rein Axe.
New Year's Dagr
Another unit I have that I love, SPD Smoke gives her the benefit of being…pretty much the only DR these ladies have access to, while letting them keep their Null-F as well.
Similar situation as NY!Dagr, but squishier while also wanting to fight heavier-hitting units.
Fast unit, powerful, very squishy, not access to mitigations outside of this Smoke skill. Could also use the Catch skill.
My current merge project who’s still looking for a C-skill. I was considering Rouse A/S 4, but SPD Smoke could be good too while also giving her mitigation to counteract her inability to CC.
Elise is my baby and I adore her. She wants good skills, and SPD Smoke could definitely help counter the fact that she’s a Year 1 unit. As much as I love her, that fact is getting harder and harder to make up for.
These are my top contenders for the Smoke skill, so who do you guys think would make the best use of the skill?
- Summer Ogma
- Ninja Hana
- New Year’s Dagr
- Pirate Hinoka
- Ninja Lyn
- Summer Elise
- Ninja Corrin
It’s also worth mentioning that I do have Vital Astra fodder available, which may also be added to the unit in question.
Yen’fay with Amatsu, Vital Astra, Spurn, and SPD Smoke 4 with Flayn as a partner is completely viable for me.
