Rate the Character, Xenologue 26: Anna's daughter 1 (Chrom/Fred/Virion)

#1guedesbrawlPosted 9/17/2013 7:08:15 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! Spoiler Warning here.

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

As a last note, all "Xenologues" are only speculative: These pairings do not exist and are a just for fun thing. They preceeded by a + on the lists.

I chose Annette, Lenha, Felix and Inverse, but I will only use those names in-topic, as you can see. I will have to butcher the topic tittles when Inverse comes up, though.

-------------
*Default Annette:

Classes Available: Thief, Trickster, Assassin, Mage, Sage, Dark Mage, Archer, Sniper, Bow Knight.

Skills Available: Locktouch, Movement +1, Lethality, Pass, Lucky Seven, Acrobat, Magic +2, Focus, Rally Magic, Tomefaire, Slow Burn, Lifetaker, Skill +2, Prescience, Hit Rate +20, Bowfaire, Rally Skill, Bowbreaker, Rally Heart, Bond, All Stats +2, Paragon, Iote's Shield, Limit Breaker.
-------------

Annette is basically a Nah that trades Manakete for Bowfaire!Assassin. Which is a worse trade... nonetheless, this means that she is hunting for good Leading and Supporting material, particualrly Galeforce and/or Luna. Her natural mods are meh, outside of a +4 Luck.

-------------
*Chrom!Annete:

*New Classes Available: Cavalier, Paladin, Great Knight.

*New Skills Available: Discipline, Outdoor Fighter, Defender, Aegis, Luna, Dual Guard+.

*Special Inheritance: Aether.

*Modifiers:
+5 Luck.
+3 Skill.
+2 Speed.
+1 Strength and Magic.
0 Resistance.
-1 Defense
-------------

Meh mods. Basically a Luna Pairing, a pretty mediocre static Support with bad leading options. While Lucina's in C rank, this isn't bad enough for a D either, so C it is.

-------------
*Frederick!Annete:

*New Classes Available: Cavalier, Paladin, Great Knight, Knight, General, Wyvern Rider, Wyvern Lord, Griffon Rider.

*New Skills Available: Discipline, Outdoor Fighter, Defender, Aegis, Luna, Dual Guard+, Defense +2, Indoor Fighter, Rally Defense, Pavise, Strength +2, Tantivity, Quick Burn, Swordbreaker, Deliverer, Lancebreaker.

*Modifiers:
+4 Skill and Luck.
+2 Strength and Defense.
+1 Resistance.
-1 Magic and Speed.
-------------

Balanced mods, slightly meh. Can try her hand at tanking, and can be a static support, with a few support skills from the Wyvern classes. B rank, but barely so.

*Virion!Annete:

*New Skills Available: Strength +2, Tantivity, Quick Burn, Swordbreaker, Deliverer, Lancebreaker.

*Modifiers:
+4 Skill.
+3 Speed and Luck.
+1 Magic and Resistance.
0 Strength.
-2 Defense.
-------------

Meh mods, outside of the good Speed. Well, this is unfortunate. I don't think I need to say anything out of "D rank".

#5videospiritPosted 9/17/2013 8:23:11 PM
You should replace Dark mage with Dark Knight, Anathema would actually make all these but Virion!Annete a B.

Chrom!Annete: C
Frederick!Annete: C Unimpressive stats, no complete skill sets. No way to make pavgise viable. Lucky 7+Quickburn is likely the most viable combination she gets and that's terrible on lunatic+.
Virion!Annete: D At least Fred and chrom give dual guard+

oh, right. sorry.

Hmm... didn't notice Fred adds Strength +2 to the full support role, which technically gives her 5 skills to use.

Chrom!Annette: C
Gives Cavalier, so she'd have access to Luna and Dual Guard+, which isn't bad. But not the best classes... Oh and Aether, which is cool.
Fred!Anette: C
Cool mods and all, but she still squirms with skills.
Virion!Annette: D
Sigh.
