Haven't played in a long time, need some pairing help.

#1Owain_SFPosted 1/13/2014 11:40:52 PM
Hey all, I haven't played FE:A in a long time, and I'd like some help with my pairings. Looking back on my last file, I had the following:

Chrom x Olivia
Lon'qu x Maribelle
Stahl x Cordelia
Donnel x Sully
Frederick x Cherche
Ricken x Lissa
FeMU x Brady

Now this playthrough i'm using a male avatar, probably marrying lissa. what other pairings would you suggest?

Nosferatu first, ask questions later. It isn't wise to put all your Anns in that basket.

Which pairings would you like help for? What would you like your child units to be skill and attack wise (Magic or melee)?

Chrom x Olivia
Lon'qu x Maribelle
Stahl x Cordelia
Donnel x Sully
Frederick x Cherche
Ricken x Lissa
FeMU x Brady

Chrom x Olivia - that's a really good one, I use that normally. Though if you have a FeMU you might want them with Chrom for a super Morgan and Lucina combo.

Lon'qu x Maribelle - this is fine unless you didn't like it, Brady only needs mods since he gets the the best stuff from his Mom.

Stahl x Cordelia - I'd do this if I could, good support, arguably the best Severa but I like her with dark hair so I always go with Lon'qu; I'd never make it Kellam, ugh.

Donnel x Sully - Great too since Kjelle can get galeforce this way.

Frederick x Cherche - Don't like Gerome, he's best used as a support unit so best make his strength go through the roof. Use Vaike.

Ricken x Lissa - Best pairing for Owain but since you pair Brady with your MU, maybe you want a magical husband for Maribelle to boost Brady's magic, if your MU is magic based too then the resulting Morgan will be a magical beast.

Are there any other pairings or potential wives for characters you plan on using for your next playthrough? I quite like using manaketes in enemy intensive areas since they can take and dish out a lot of damage personally. Wyvern lords, assassins and heroes make up most of my army.

Hmm... I don't really have a overall setup that could be easily adapted to accommodate Avatar x Lissa, but I can still tell you the pairings I went with in my game - at least some of them should still be good for your overall setup.

Chrom x Sumia
Male Avatar x Cordelia
Gaius x Tharja
Frederick x Cherche
Lon'qu x Maribelle
Vaike x Nowi
Stahl x Olivia
Ricken x Lissa
Donnel x Sully
Gregor x Miriel
Kellam x Panne

MaMu x Lissa
Chrom x Olivia/Sumia/Maribelle
Olivia x Chrom/Stahl (Physical Inigo) Ricken/Kellam (Magical) or Libra (V/V)
Maribelle x Lon'qu/Chrom
Donnel x Sully
Sumia x Chrom/Henry
Coredlia x Stahl/Lon'qu/Vaike
Cherche x Vaike/Gregor/Henry (zerker) or Fred/Stahl/Kellam (front)
Panne x Fred/Kellam
Miriel x Gregor/Lon'qu/Ricken
Tharja x Gaius
Nowi x Whoever is left

Pick who you want Chrom to marry and go from there.

These are the pairings I like to do:

Chrom x Sumia -> (I like this because two children get Aether, Both are Dark Fliers usually)
Lissa x Ricken -> Sage Owain
Tharja x Gaius -> Sniper Noire
Cordelia x Stahl -> Sniper/Hero Severa
Miriel x Gregor -> Sorc Lauren
Olivia x Libra -> Sorc Inigo
Cherche x Frederick -> General/Wyvern Lord Gerome
Vaike x Nowi -> Manakete/General/Hero Nah
Maribelle x Lon'qu -> Sage/Dread Fighter Brady
Sully x Donnel -> General/Hero Kjelle
Panne x Kellam -> Berserker/Taguel Yarne

As for MU:

MaMU x Tiki/Aversa -> (Tiki if I want a manakete Morgan, otherwise I like Shadowgift)
FeMU x One of the second gen males, this varies depending on what I want Morgan to be.

These are not optimal when it comes to having the perfect pairs with the kids, but I like them nonetheless.

Those are strong pairs overall, and as for MaMU x Lissa, that is to be determined by what you choose your MUs stat mods to be. MaMU x Lissa can make a pretty strong Dread Fighter Owain using Ignis imo. Good Luck with your playthrough!

Looks good, have fun with it though. It's nice to do playthroughs where you pair who you want to pair with each other too. As deadpool said, best make use of MU's traits to maximize Owain initially and for endgame. Since he's going with Lissa, a +mag or +spd should be good for Owain.

Your Brady, Noire, Severa, Owain, Nah, Kjelle and Lucina are going to hit really hard and often.
