What's your single favouite unit/build?

#1shenlongxzPosted 7/13/2013 2:22:14 AM
The idea of this thread is to talk about characters who've grown on you, whether for story/support reasons, in-game performance or just because you like it thematically. My favourite unit is Sumia!Lucina as a General, with the following build:

Limit Breaker
Rightful King
Aether
Pavise
Aegis

It just pushes all the right buttons for me. It's completely unique, synergises perfectly, and is actually effective. When paired with a Paladin, she has 84% chance for Aegis/Pavise, 47% chance for Aether. She also makes for an easy choice for Boots, which is handy. It's not the best defensive or offensive setup, but it's a nice hybrid build.

I also like it for min-max purposes. Sumia/Chrom is a great combat pairing, and Lucina having a sister means that you get an additional marriage option for pairing off the kids. I'd run it every time if it wasn't for Inigo being hard to place. The best solution I've found is giving him Stahl and giving Severa Vaike, though that locks her into being a Hero.

She has other skills, but these are the two that directly affect how I use Inigo.

+30 Crit on top of a character with an already absurd crit chance, heavy crit weapons, and a 60% base Luna activation. It's absolutely devastating.

Hah, my Inigo's a sniper too. It's a more cookie cutter build, though he does have a Killer Bow just for kicks. If I gave him Rightful King he'd have a 90% chance for Luna with a paladin partner and all the rallies, but I figure 80% is high enough with a Brave Bow.

A more specialised build is the one I use for clearing Infinite Regalia rapidly -

Armsthrift
Galeforce
Locktouch
Pass
LB

Three units with that paired with three other Galeforce units, and one last Galeforce pair to finish up once I have the treasure.

Give lucina dual support+ and inigo will get 10 more crit.

How about a skill that isn't a waste of a slot?
Dual Strike+ will raise Dual Strike% past 100%, meaning you can always attack 6 times before the enemy acts. Avatar's Lucina is the best support in the best for a reason.

This sentence is as meaningless as you.

I don't really have a favorite build. I like fiddling around. Although I enjoy transfer supporting my MU. I keep messing around with it, but a few things that stay constant:

Aggressor
Armsthrift (Because my MU will frequently attack over 10 times in the player phase alone)
DG+

I also enjoy the novelty of General Sumia equipped with a Lance due to her falling whenever she activates Luna. Prefer has as a Falcon Knight outside of novelty though.

I don't think a unit that lacks aggressor is a real candidate for best support unit. Lucina is an awesome lead or double Galeforce lead, but support Lucina seems like a huge waste to me.

Chrom > Lucina as a support unit.

Addendum: Editted out other stuff because favorite != best, and why turn this into a min-max topic?

He said he wanted to focus on crit. Its not an optimal build, its for the fun, so i gave him a way to get 10 more crit. Otherwise id agree with you.
