Why do people hate Lyn?

yeah, and? the harder maps show up earlier on when you don't have your really good units yet. not saying the later maps are easy, but when you get your full team set up things calm down a little. that's why erk is so highly rated in HHM despite not being used in the end game. he's got a solid 10 chapters of being your best and probably only mage. lyn's ability to dominate early on with her manni katti makes her a lot better than she normally would be.

Erk's actually not that good and Lucius beats him for promotion because of C Staves and better offensive growths. And Lyn's Mani Katti abuse doesn't last forever.

Eh. She's well loved so she has vocal haters.

I'm glad Farina is popular enough to be remembered but not too popular that she has anywhere near the haters as poor Lyn who did nothing to deserve such hate.

There's like 100 posts in this thread and maybe 2 of them could be construed as Lyn hate. It's all in 'yer head...

NOTE: Saying that Lyn is a mediocre unit doesn't mean you hate her. It means she's a mediocre unit.

Here. Else where... Hehehe... They are indeed quite loud but they are only a few before the many that adore her.

I don't even remember the tier list for 7...

But eh, I just use whoever I feel is best for the chapter. I mostly ignore levels unless, say, I need to pick two of the three cavaliers.

Lords always go in. I sort of assigned the lords "Class Stand-ins", with Lyn filling in for Mercs/Myrms, Hector for Knights/Fighters, and Eliwood for Mercs/Knights.

Real shame that Farina and Karla join late as they're decent enough units as is.

Though I find it hilarious that they intentionally set up Karla for Arena Abuse when you get her.

Uh, Battle Prep is a 5 turn map. Even so, four rounds of the Arena barely constitutes abuse and with Karla's poor stats really only gets her to a usable level for the next map.

legit question, she has good stats (I've always liked speedy characters)


Just because you like high speed does not make her stats good. A base HP of 16 with 2 Def/20% growth is not a good thing. She consistently dies in two to three hits, and her Avoid isn't as great as so many people exaggerate it to be.
