Rate the Character, Paralogue 15: Virion!Gerome, Kellam!Nah and Henry!Nah +OT

#1guedesbrawlPosted 9/18/2013 7:37:03 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, C, B, A or S. 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. If you are not sure on how to proceed, take a look here:

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

However, we are using a different system for this topic. Today's pairings were already judged.. but some weren't satisfied with the results, and requested a second round.

Instead of the usual rankings, we will have only 3 options: Rank Up, Stay, and Rank Down. As a last note, you cannot nominate a pairing for another Paralogue today.

Can any of you good fellas that only show up for Paralogues deal with a tiebreaker in this last topic for me? ...or anyone who hasn't voted, really.

-------------
*Default Gerome:

Classes Available: Wyvern Rider, Wyvern Lord, Griffon Rider, Fighter, Warrior, Hero, Priest, War Monk, Sage, Dread Fighter.

Skills Available: Strength +2, Tantivity, Quick Burn, Swordbreaker, Deliverer, Lancebreaker, HP +5, Zeal, Rally Strength, Counter, Sol, Axebreaker, Miracle, Healtouch, Rally Luck, Renewal, Rally Magic, Tomefaire, Resistance +10, Aggressor, All Stats +2, Paragon, Iote's Shield, Limit Breaker.

Special Inheritance: Resistance +2, Demoiselle, Rally Resistance, Dual Support+.


*Virion!Gerome:

New Classes Available: Archer, Sniper, Bow Knight, Mage, Dark Knight.

New Skills Available: Skill +2, Prescience, Hit Rate +20, Bowfaire, Rally Skill, Bowbreaker, Magic +2, Focus, Slow Burn, Lifetaker.

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

Gerome getting Archer isn't terribly useful,, and neither of his new classes nor Warrior are optimal supports, but it's still something physical that he can work with, and he actually gets some speed. Definitively not a D rank pairing.

*Default Nah:

Classes Available: Manakete, Wyvern Rider, Wyvern Lord, Griffon Rider, Mage, Sage, Dark Knight, Bride.

Skills Available: Odd Rhythm, Wyrmsbane, Strength +2, Tantivity, Quick Burn, Swordbreaker, Deliverer, Lancebreaker, Magic +2, Focus, Rally Magic, Tomefaire, Slow Burn, Lifetaker , Rally Heart, Bond, All Stats +2, Paragon, Iote's Shield, Limit Breaker.


*Kellam!Nah:

*New Classes Available: Knight, General, Great Knight, Thief, Trickster, Assassin, Cleric, War Cleric.

*New Skills Available: Defense +2, Indoor Fighter, Rally Defense, Pavise, Luna, Dual Guard+, Locktouch, Movement +1, Lucky Seven, Acrobat, Lethality, Pass, Miracle, Healtouch, Rally Luck, Renewal.

*Modifiers:
+7 Defense.
+3 Strength and Resistance.
+2 Magic.
+1 Skill.
0 Luck.
-3 Speed.
-------------

Ultimately this pairing is only for Defense and Knight. It's highly unlikely that you will use Cleric, maybe for Renewal, but she will likely not need it. It's nice, but other A ranks provide much more, so down it goes!

-------------
*Henry!Nah:

*New Classes Available: Dark Mage, Sorceror, Thief, Trickster, Assassin, Troubadour, Valkyrie, War Cleric.

*Special Inheritance: Despoil, Gamble, Counter, Rally Strength, Wrath, Axefaire

*New Skills Available: Hex, Anathema, Vengeance, Tomebreaker, Locktouch, Movement +1, Lucky Seven, Acrobat, Lethality, Pass, Resistance +2, Demoiselle, Rally Resistance, Dual Support+, Rally Luck, Renewal.

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

Nah can use Anathema and Dual Support+ for a critical support as a Sage or Valkyrie, but outside of that, nothing much. Vengeance is cool, but she doesn't have optimal ways of abusing it. Outside of that, i guess maybe Axefaire!War Cleric? Nonetheless, it's more than enough for a B rank, so it stays.

Virion!Gerome: Bad stats for support, bad stats for lead, no great knight, no procs but sol, no galeforce, no assasin to make use of bowfaire. D rank. Stay. Not even a good choice of longbow sniper.

Henry!Nah: Stay.

Kellam!Nah: Tough choice. Is Sol really worth more to nah than great knight? The defense doesn't hurt her really. Kellam is a decent enough choice for support partner for nah, which is one plus too. I'm going to go with rank down, but only because none of Nah's none galeforce pairings but Vaike!Nah should really be rank A. Rank B is hardly a "bad" rank.

Kellam!Nah: The unholy pairing, objectively I'd say it's A grade but I really want to give this an F-, Stay
Henry!Nah: THIS IS A B? DOWN!

Virion!Gerome: Abstain
I have no idea about this pairing. On one hand Gerome can make a decent support Bow Knight (or Warrior to those lucky few who don't need +Speed Pair-ups), but Virion can do the same thing. Sure, Gerome will have better mods due to being a 2nd-Gen, but I don't know if being a slightly better Virion is worth ranking this up. Also half of Virion's classes overlap, and I don't like that.

Kellam!Nah: Rank Down

Well, +7 defence is certainly a thing, but Vaike!Nah can do pretty much the same things as Kellam!Nah, but with a much better speed mod. Mercenary and Axefaire are probably more useful than Cleric for Nah at any rate.

Henry!Nah: Rank Down
