Thankfully, another exclusive promotion...meaning i only needed to do a small edit from C39.


Rally Resistance is our usual Rally skill, gives a Resistance +4 bonus to allies within a 3-tile radius from the user, who loses a turn from activating this with the Rally command.

Magic is going to be the biggest source of damage taken in your team, since many people have low resistance growths, making this very useful in my book. Another Rally worthy of a B Rank.


Dual Support+ increases...frankly, there's no way to explain this skill correctly without linking to serenes. Have fun!
http://serenesforest.net/fe13/dual.html (scroll down a little bit to "Dual Support")

Well, this skill will allow the leading unit to get, at the very least, a Hit/Avoid/Crit/Dodge +10 bonus, and at best, +20.

this is very useful, particularly that Crit bonus. It's very easy to setup too, but you can also make it completely useless depending on your formations...or spread your units and enjoy the same bonus.

It's really a matter of preference. I give it a A rank.

Rally Resistence - C

It's a decent rally skill.

Dual Support+ - S

Best skill you want to have on your inactive partner in a pair up. If you can get it than get it on them!

And I agree, B, A.

Dual Support+: A
An excellent, underrated skill.

Rally Resistance: B
One of the more useful Rallies, considering your units' generally low Res levels and the danger of magic.

When the Black Knight tossed Ragnell to Greil, it was actually meant as an attack. If Awakening is any indication, the proper way to use Ragnell is to throw it.

It's a shame that Sol was bumped down. Did no one take into consideration that it stacks with Nosferatu/Aversa's Night when they voted it down?

Rally Resistance: C

Decent, but low priority and only really worthwhile on a dedicated "rally bot."

Dual Support+: (B)

It's not Dual Strike+, but it gets definitely good. However, once you've achieved high support rank with multiple characters it loses some appeal. Also, the absolute benefits of higher support rank taper off.

I suppose it's more appealing if you constantly have one guy + pair up partner and no adjacent allies though. But if you can do that consistently, that solo dude is likely so overpowered that Dual Support+ is just a novelty.
