(Spoiler) Rate the Character, Xenologue 20: All 5 new Yarnes

#1guedesbrawlPosted 8/18/2013 7:43:19 PM
Welcome to my Series, Rate the Character! Here, we will be analyzing each and every combination of 2nd generation characters, and giving them a rank of D (lowest), C, B, A and S (Highest). These topics usually will last just a single day, so be careful not to miss them!

There is a list of the currently rated characters with a small intro to each rank for you to use as a base, if you are having trouble. But first, what do we use as a base for ranking the kids? What we SHOULDN'T consider? If you are not sure on how to proceed, take a look here:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643003-fire-emblem-awakening/66253616

You can also nominate previously rated pairings to be brought back and re-discussed. There are more details in this topic, make sure you read it if you are nominating:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643003-fire-emblem-awakening/66329592

Might as well, since this is going to be unpopular anyways, i can force 2 days without feeling guilty (or being forced to thanks to RL issues).



BONUS! Everybody gets two nominations!



Not that many people would come here anyways... *sigh*. We need to name the 4 new kids one day too.

Chrom!Yarne
All Yarne really wants is Dual Guard+ to complete a support set and Chrom does just that and gives him another -faire to play with. Also, bonus support classes so B.

Basillo!Yarne
Again, all he needs is Dual Guard+, but he has a better STR mod. An A IMO.

Walhart!Yarne
Each Yarne gets better and this one is better than the last.

Yen'Fay!Yarne
A step down, but still gets a decent support skill in a new -faire. B.

Priam!Yarne
For all intensive purposes, this is almost the same as Gregor!Yarne with slightly better mods and some special inheritance skills. He won't use Luna for tanking, so he can get swordbreaker to face common enemies. A rank I guess.

As for naming the kids of the Spotpass females, I have some suggestions, but what are the genders of each kid? Was that ever decided?

Edit: Also for that matter, what classes do the kids inherit from their mothers if they have gender exclusive classes?

Chrom!Yarne: B
Basilio!Yarne: A
Walhart!Yarne: S
Yen'fay!Yarne: B
Priam!Yarne: A

Sorry I havn't been posting for the past couple of days. I was on vacation in California for the last week, so I didn't have access to internet. ( I just got home 30 minutes ago.)

Well, if I have two nominations, than I'll nominate Frederick!Gerome twice.

Just to be clear, I don't hate Frederick!Gerome. It's a good pairing, I just don't think it's good enough to be an S Rank pairing.

There were some polls made on the Cynthia Xenologues, you can look there.

#7Dragonboy86Posted 8/19/2013 10:19:01 AM
I took a look and here are my suggestions then:

Anna's Kid:...Annie. Mostly cuz I want to see her stand out from the rest of the Anna's.

Flavia's Kid: Either Alexander or Sevan.

Aversa's Kid: Kyrie or Capernia.

Say'ri's kid: Ren'Kai or Riu'Bei

Also, I didn't notice the nomination thing, so I'll nominate Maribelle!Lucina and Stahl!Inigo.

Let's see.

A/A/A/B/A from me.
#9BlueDryBones1Posted 8/19/2013 1:01:47 PM
B/B/A/B/A

Nominate Virion!Inigo x 2 all he really needed was Luna so I think he deserves an A.
