They're not too bad when you just start grinding exp challenges because you've got nothing else to do. Finished the MSQ hard mode too now so going through it on lunatic, wonder how quickly the story and stuff will take to be updated, FFBE and a few other gacha games generally goes monthly or every other month with events every week so wonder if this'll follow a similar timeline or something. Really does need to stay regular to keep relevant though with so little to actually do right now.

We've got a new Focus coming tomorrow so there's something I guess. Hopefully there'll be units that can challenge the Takumi/Hector supremacy but not overshadow them

power creep is the last thing we need

5 sodding 3*'s

just give me Ephraim god damn it

Ninty announcing they're going to be altering Heroes as it goes along. First announced alteration is tweaking experience so that lower level fights still give experience to higher leveled units which is pretty nice.

Really wish they hadn't only added 5 star heroes. Would've been nice to actually stand a chance of getting some FE 4 and 8 characters.

Deleted heroes while in chapter 5. The story was terrible (I just skipped dialogue completely after the first two chapters) and a few times now I've gone into the next chapter only to find I can do literally zero damage with 3 of 4 characters against one enemy unit, which basically forces you to go off and grind. I just want to play through the story maps, not grind training missions.

It was fun enough but the gameplay was too appified.

Didn't ever change my lineup from the starting 4 because lol everyone else you get is level 1 I'm not grinding them up (even with the 200% exp castle bonus that I bought straight away)

Tbf initial grinding isn't too much of a problem, the crystals let you boost them up to like at least 7 then just Training Tower them till they're usable in story which is fairly soon considering level progression in story is so slow (chapter 7 enemies are only like level 15 iirc). Think your main problem is sticking to the starting lot since they're mostly kind of trash (plus all 1 stars iirc? which considering you usually get 3/4 stars from summoning means they're at a big disadvantage base stats wise), I swapped them all out pretty much straightaway and I'm breezing through the story mode.

If summoning is so vital the game should probably suggest you to do it at some point (or even tell you it's possible). I looked at it through the menu but only out of curiosity, never summoned anyone because I wasn't interested in collecting characters I just wanted to play through the maps.

The game is kind of really bad tutorial-wise at explaining what anything on the menu is. Even getting to the story missions is kind of weird in the UI.

If you expected something different from a gacha game then lmao

i mean I thought it was kinda obvious how to get around the game, my only major flaw (aside from the nothing plot, but I wasn't expecting anything in the first place) is that it crashes all the time

including one time where it crashed as i finished a match in arena, then said it couldn't recover the info and deleted my win streak

I've never had it crash yet, which is weird given that my phone is on its way out.
What're you playing on?

On the Galaxy S4 and had no crashes with it.

But yeah, I kind of felt it was obvious too that you summon in more characters when you want to but then I dump time into gacha games because I have a problem. The amount it advertsises it though and the nothing to spend orbs on when you've upgraded your castle help direct you too though. Also regardless of summoning in new units there are times where you will just have to grind in the training tower all the same. Honestly though, issues with things like the UI in this aren't that bad, things are mostly labeled how you'd expect from the genre, in all it's not that differently set out to things like Brave Exvius.

Nothing going to fix the plot though, just don't care about it and roll with the heavily watered down FE gameplay.

Also on an s4 presently.

Also I wasn't aware people might think Heroes wasn't a gacha game tbh

That being said here I am playing 4 (3 different ones plus 2 different servers for 1) and have played like 2 or 3 others in the past before they died.

Would recommend Astral Stairways if you want to confess to really being the worst type of person in the world. South Korea really does it

oh boy the grind to get an Olivia that can actually dance is real

As a heads up, if you have duplicates, there's no reason to not merge, especially if you're planning on elevating their rating. They might lose their +1 on promotion, but you get a feather discount on doing so

I just used crystals to get her to 20, then killed a couple enemies for the extra sp. Then of course I pulled a three star Olivia... This game is so frustrating

I've got my core team all to level 40 now and am just kind of left here with nothing to really do anymore and lack the feathers to bump the 4* ones to 5*. Like I could train another team I guess? Grinding really isn't all that good in this game though so more inclined to not do that.

My main team are almost level 40 and I'm finding the same thing. There's no incentive to grind as you can't even earn feathers or orbs from it, plus leveling anyone none five star past 20 is pointless. I'm just going to collect the rest of the orbs from Lunatic then I can't see me playing much unless they make changes.

Probably a good thing though as I just get frustrated that I can't get the characters I want. I'll just replay some other FE games instead.

Since SP carries over from ranking up, doing a few levels after 20 where you're still earning tons of points is worth it even if you have unlocked all available skills, since any new ones are not gonna be cheap

i've been trying to level up Sharena since she's apparently high tier, at 3* atm

Managed to get Julia! I'm glad I finally got another five star and that it's one of the promo ones, but at the same time Julia was the one I wanted least. I've been running Nino since day one, so don't exactly need a green mage and she's my least favourite of the promos too.

Still, running out of stuff to do now. Almost finished the Lunatic missions and I'm not fussed about arena or level grinding.
