    My pairings were Avatar/Rhajat Hayato/Orochi (this makes an absolutely incredible Rhajat) Jakob/Azura (Jakob's son is an absolute healing monster, this is a good combination) Ryoma/Hana Silas/Rinkah Kaze/Felicia Hinata/Kagero Takumi/Mozu Subaki/Sakura Azama/Hinoka Kaden/Setsuna Saizo/Oboro I haven't gotten most of these yet; I've got Rhajat, both of Jakob and Asura's children, and Ryoma's son. The children chapters scale by level, so since I got Rhajat and Dwyer (Jakob's son) early, they were fairly easy. It's not a situation like Awakening where some kids (Morgan, Kjelle, Owain) have very easy paralogues and some (Gerome, Nah, Brady) have really hard ones. I made a couple of attempts at Azama's daughter but kept dying for stupid reasons, so I decided to wait and come back later. When I came back later, all of the generic outlaws were suddenly second-tier classes and they wereall over the map. In Awakening, it was fairly easy to grind someone like Olivia all the way to Galeforce and then pass it on to Inigo, but in Fates, if you grind your characters to a level 15 skill, you pay for it with tougher enemies. I'm at the point where the same seven or eight people (Avatar, Rhajat, Ryoma, Hana, Saizo, Oboro, Hinoka, and Azama) pretty much handle all of my fighting and everyone else just hangs back trying to get a shot in.

    Oh, which one is it, Xander? Probably not, I'm almost to the point where you have to actually fight Xander and the whole point of much of the plot is that Xander is TONKA TOUGH.

    You lose in hilarious fashion. Garon has ridiculous stats, a top-level axe, Dragonskin (halves all damage), and a posse. You're a mid-level schmuck whose goal in the battle is RETREAT.

    Most of the joining characters are really obvious in Birthright. Did you get Takumi? I think he's the only person who starts as an enemy that you can get (in that horrible, awful, no fun at all forest map with the spike traps).

    Sturdy Regirock is worth it though.

    Dude, no, Chapter 12 you go in and grab the treasure if you want it but the main thing is you attach the avatar to a flying unit like Hinoka and GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE. Sticking Saizo or Kaze with Setsuna to swoop in and grab the treasure chest on the same turn that you exit the battlefield is a good idea. Youcan'tbeat the king in Chapter 12, he's way too powerful, that's the point. Chapter 12 is not a good place to grind.

    Yeah, New 3DS is a better performing system, which people forget--it's a legitimate upgrade and not just "the same plus amiibo and a little stick nub thing." You can see the difference in games like Smash Bros that strain on the original.
  9. Pokémon

    If anybody wants my Celebi, they can have it--I got one at the Pokemon Bank event.

    Kagero has really high Strength so should pair with somebody who matches that. Saizo and Ryoma aren't bad picks.
  11. Better Call Saul

    The fucking squat cobbler scene was the funniest thing I've seen on TV in years. Amazing.

    Jakob's son is the hero EWB deserves.

    Awakening and Birthright are both good games to start with. Birthright is probably a little easier since it has Phoenix mode, which basically makes it impossible to lose. What little I've played of Conquest isgreatbut I wouldn't make it your first FE game.

    It's cool, she doesn't support anyone. I keep doing this thing where I underestimate how hard an enemy is going to get hit and then get the avatar or someone weak like Mozu killed in one hit. Just happened in the chapter with the werewolves. I'm a weenie so I hard reset every time. My party is getting pretty beastly right now, though. Ryoma and Hana are probably my strongest married couple--Ryoma is an absolute monster when he joins and it turns out Hana makes a great Priestess. Rhajat's parents are sitting out permanently now but she has two Diviner parents so she's a great Sorcerer. Azama as a Great Master has been the biggest surprise--you'd think he'd have high Magic growths but he's got one of the best Strength progressions in the game, and he's got enough Defenses to tank and take a hit and can heal other people when he's not hitting things hard. He's fantastic.
