Optimal Pairings for Lunatic+/Apotheosis ?

#1Dark_PlaceboPosted 2/2/2014 7:07:06 AM
Im creating a new Lunatic+ game, and need suggestions on optimal pairings and skillsets suggestions. Im up for Male (AT/GF/LB/Aggressor/Luna).

I'm assuming by the skills that by "male" you mean a male Morgan, not MU and by you're listing Aggressor, you have the Dreadfighter DLC. Here's the best set of pairings I've got:

Olivia!Lucina
Chrom!Inigo
Ricken!Owain
Donnel!Kjelle
Gaius!Noire
Henry!Cynthia
Lon'qu!Severa
Virion!Brady
Vaike!Gerome
Libra!Laurent
Stahl!Yarne
Gregor!Nah
+Mag, -Def, Libra!Laurent!Morgan

For the pairs, classes, and skill set-ups for APB5 here: http://thephilosogamer.blogspot.com/2013/03/fire-emblem-awakening-character.html

The pairings don't really matter during the main game, even on Lunatic+, since capped stats on virtually any unit will yield similar results. And on Apotheosis the pairings only really make a small % difference in your odds of success (assuming you have Limit Breaker), so I'd still recommend just using whatever units you feel like.

The only difference between Luna+ Apo and Normal Apo is a SR Warrior carrying a Silver bow ++ in Luna(+), nonforged in normal. You can change many things and still get a viablen setup.

Since you'll be a guy, I recommend these pairings:

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

These will outfit your children with all the skills they'll ever need.

Why would you put Rally skills on attackers. If you attack with Chrom, you are attacking using 4 skill slots because you wasting the 5th skill slots on Rally Skill. If you Rally with Chrom, you are wasting 4 skill slots because you could have used a unit's turn to Rally with 5 different Rallies instead. How inefficient.

This is why the concept of a RallyBot, a unit that only Rallies with 5 Rally skills, is widespread. This way, you only need to waste one unit's turn to perform the Rally, and you will have more other units attacking.

This sentence is as meaningless as you.

I'm not sure what you are looking at, but there are no rally skills on the attackers in the section I cite. Chrom is not an attacker (or even mentioned anywhere) in the set-up at APB5.

Since you're being confusing with wording (can't tell if you want Male MU or Male Morgan exactly):

Chrom x Olivia/Sumia/Maribelle;
Lissa x Libra/Ricken;
Sully x Donnel;
Miriel x Gregor/Stahl;
Sumia x Henry/Chrom;
Maribelle x Ricken/Lon'qu/Libra;
Panne x Frederick/Gregor/Kellam;
Cordelia x Lon'qu/Stahl;
Nowi x Stahl/Kellam/Frederick/Vaike;
Tharja x Gaius;
Olivia x Chrom/Stahl/Ricken;
Cherche x Vaike/Henry/Gregor/Frederick*

*- Frederick is popular as a father for Gerome but actually is notably inferior than Vaike/Henry/Gregor.

Notably my ass. +1 Str and Berserker is not "notably" better.

Berserker > ANYTHING Fred has to offer.

Do want to have the fact that Vaike!Gerome hits twice as hard as Fred!Gerome thrown at you again? Fred!Gerome only has one reasonable support option and that's Paladin, since the bonuses from other classes are bad.
