    My god...yuri’s relic

    mov+1, canto, aegis+pavise, and it’s a ring

    Honestly I had zero issues with Lysithea whatsoever, she was consistently oneshotting at 4/5 range using Thyrsus with zero investment or special treatment even on maddening, and she has warp ofc. She’s not quite house leader tier (read: broken) but she’s close, people saying she requires too much investment are wildin. It’s ridiculous how good Felix is though, even when I didn’t intend on using him he ended up outclassing half my squad through adjutant levelling

    As for materials, just from breaking monster shields consistently I had Umbral steel coming out my ears lmao. Wootz steel was the real problem tbh, I was tryna get brave weapons on everyone and it wasn’t happening.

    Definitely agree jeralts death was soooo badly executed even by FE standards. F***in “I have something I really need to tell you” headass

    I guess with Umbra Steel it was just my RNG I had a hefty amount of Wootz Steel actually LMAO. But Umbra Steel I only had 2 in my entire BL Run despite tryna farm it every week.

    With Lythisea they should’ve just made her a little more durable to hits even if its costed her some strength imo. Her lack of durability is something you can easily work around it by not putting her on the front lines, but if the map is really jank she’ll die in some bullshit ways

    Felix on the otherhand is just a tank regardless of what you make him LMAO. Swordsmaster Felix is the best class he can take obviously but even as a Mercenary Felix just f***ing destroys everything in his past.

    Deadass the first moment you see Jeralt you know he’s gonna die His death was pretty sad itself, but he had more flags on him than All Might.

  • Starting the DLC. Why isn’t Jiraiya the narrator? Excited to play tho.

    i used swordmaster felix in my first couple of runs, and it still turned out good because its felix, but that class doesnt even tap into his true potential, being stuck with only 5 movement and only specializing in swords, with 3H's s***ty version of Astra as its class mastery

    imo grappler/warmaster are Felix's best classes, those gauntlets will proc his GOAT crest like crazy and the class abilities are insane (fierce iron fist + no terrain restriction in grappler, crit+20 as war master's innate skill, and quick riposte as its mastery). i also really wanna try sniper / bow knight felix at some point, i hear its really good (and of course it is, its f***ing felix).

    dimitri wrath + vantage cheese still works on cindered shadows used hero dimitri's innate vantage + battalion wrath to kill the death knight in ch2 lmao

  • Finished the DLC. Absolutely was not worth the $25 but still good. Should’ve been $10-$15 imo.

    Only on ch4 rn but I’m agreeing with this so far. Story is some mid but the new characters/classes are fun and these unique objectives are neat. Difficulty on hard/classic is a decent challenge (my mages getting one rounded by almost everything kinda remind me of maddening) but some maps like ch2 kinda promote campy play

    On this side story at least trickster is prolly my fav class to use, that 5 range swap + canto on yuri has soo much utility

    yup. mediocre cosmetics and a 10hr story can't really justify $25
    I didn't beat but do u think they left some sort of opportunity for a part 2 for the season pass or even just more lore that they could expand on

  • I got an out of context spoiler from YouTube but I loved how the title said MASSIVE SPOILERS but the thumbnail spoiled the whole thing like what even is the point when you do it like that lmfao

    I definitely liked the new gameplay additions like how enemies come in waves in like chapter 2 and it was pretty challenging for me. Story definitely some mid tho and its way too short.

    Also personally hated the classes they gave some of the characters you use. I personally prefer Hilda as a Wyvern Rider so I had to adapt to the class they were using Definitely agree that chapter 2 promoted camping tho, imo so did chapter 3. The characters are also so good and by far the best thing about the DLC. Yuri is so damn flexible its insane.

    They didn’t really leave anything for a part 2 as the story is pretty self contained. Hell from my experience so far the Ashen Wolves don’t even acknowledge the events of the story in the Monastery but it’s probably mentioned in their supports. I think they can definitely make a a 2nd Season Pass tho, there’s so much general lore to explore. Like I said before I personally want story DLC that’s focused on the tragedy of Duscar as there’s so much you can do with it.

    for sure for sure
    imagine if they did a part 2 where they look into cordelias past I'm pretty sure she was cloned or something, there's a lot of speculation about that, what everybody did during the 5 year timeskip, duscur, and the other places like Brigid where they talked about them a lot but didn't really explore them
    I think there's a lot they could keep doing for the game through updates if they wanted to. all the hype, being the best selling game in the franchise, being added to smash, i think the fans/players have made it p vocal that they're interested in more from the franchise in general

    I like sending hilda down wyvern too but for this dlc Pegasus Knight does well enough in a pinch, and then I put Claude in sniper usually so everyone gets a battalion. I really enjoyed the class/skill limitation though, felt like classic FE.

    Chapter 2s reinforcement waves are cool in theory I guess but without knowing how often they spawn and how many spawn at a time (too f***ing many), it meant camping the avoid tiles the entire time. Apparently the high enemy density is a reoccurring thing with the rest of the chapters too. And luckily I knew which keyhole to get for ch3 in advance but yea I can see how that’d be a pain

    Oh yeah I definitely agree that the spawning did get too much. I liked having a wave 2 but then wave 3 hit and it was getting repetitive. Just straight boring if anything. Then wave 4 hit which was just overkill.

    With Chapter 3 I deadass had to start the whole fight over again because I accidentally got Constance immediately killed (That’s when I realized that she and Hapi might be worse at taking hits than Lythisea), had horrible luck in the fight (enemies kept dodging EVERYTHING i did), and I put the key in the wrong keyhole When I redid I decided to just camp everything out and slowly make my way to the right keyhole so I don’t get jumped again

    writing was weak
    maps were mostly meh but i enjoyed chapter 6
    i liked the characters and the new content from beating it will probably warrant a new playthrough of the main game from me

    foul play is GOAT

    constance is basically lysithea with more movement and canto

    also, her japanese va is incredible

  • this fight in chapter 3 is fundamentally broken and there's no way they didn't design that not to piss you off

  • I've tried this s*** twice and unless you wanna drag it out to like an hour and turtle the whole thing out this level is unenjoyable 0/10 will buy the next game

  • Feb 16

    Chapter 5 of CS got me wanting to play BL again, got some serious nostalgia from soloing the entire map with wrath/vantage dimitri

    Chapter 6 was pretty fun too, prolly second favourite after chapter 4. loved hearing roar of dominion again too, amazing song and criminally underused in the main story

    Looking to finish this s*** tonight and maybe start a new file for main game

    All these maps take a ridiculously long time to beat tbh just off the insane amount of enemies that they throw at you. I’m still enjoying it overall but I guess that’s how they inflate the length/difficulty to make it seem like it’s worth more than what it is

    just finished the DLC, made a quick tier list of each unit based on how useful they were in the side story to me on hard/classic, units are ordered within tiers too (game was designed around deploying and using everyone so no low tiers)

    my only regret with how i played was not keeping edelgard as a fortress knight. yea i got my +1 mov in warrior but she couldnt one-round, tank, chip past two range, or canto; at least as an FK she could just facetank phys damage and would prolly be low A tier by my guess.

    reclassing for the extra movement isn't really necessary anyway since foul play closes the gap between your 4 movement units and the rest of your gang

    linhardt would have been a pain in the ass otherwise

    edit: in reference to ch4

  • Is the side story not canon to the main game? I’ve yet to see it referenced once. In fact I’ve seen s*** already that contradicts it

    yeah ain’t played BL yet but Dimitri definitely my best unit prolly, super beefy and that attack stat wild, coupled wit mobility...

    is this the one wit the keys? i f***ing managed to just have purple hair guy rush down to the keys while everyone else fought and almost die slipping past the golems (which i think since he had Stealth worked way better than it should have) felt so cheesy but lowkey satisfying doing on Hard first try.

    f***ing raged when the reinforcements spawn on the trap keys
