I don't use them, but it's more of a habit than anything. Seeing as you can buy second seals and just second seal them all you want so their stats are comparable, it doesn't really matter.

Geitz was pretty useful during my run of HHM, though the rest I try not to use.

Depends on the prepromote, but usually I don't. Seems I only get prepromotes of roles I already have someone filling, or roles I really don't care to fill.

Honestly, I don't want any more paladins. Keep your Geoffrey, PoR. Using 2 is already pushing it as far as I am concerned.

What, use like... bringing them to endgame?
*thinking* I brought Maribelle's husband Libra as a support buddy before.

But yeah, sure. I'll use prepromotes as long as they're on par or better then the guys I raised on the way there. I might do it anyway for flying of staff utility. If you're not one of those though, it's kinda iffy since you're competing with the attachment I have for the early soldiers I raised.

Sety wrecks faces, as does Dagda, Dean, etc.
I always dump one of Alan/Lance for Percival.
Marcus, Pent, Harken and Geitz are shoe-ins.
I use prepromos exclusively in FE8
Titania lols at FE9, I don't think I've ever used Mia/Zihark over Stefan
I don't like FE10 and can't remember anything about 11
Sirius and Etzel are amazing, Palla might as well be a prepromo that decided to un-promote herself with those bases
Anna and Libra are good staffbots

On FE7 and onward, most prepromotes range from usable to gamebreaker. FE11 and 12 are remakes, so exclude them from my statement (damn Jagen and Arran...)

Marcus: Jesus on Wheels (aka gamebreaker)
Isadora: Usable
Geitz: A bit meh, but usable nonetheless
Pent: Beast
Louise: Beast's Wife
Hawkeye: Usable
Karel and Harken: Almost beasts.
Jaffar: Beast
Vaida: Exception to the list. Gawds, take her from here.
Karla: Read Vaida
Renault: Terrible offense, but great healer if you have none.

Innes: Great. Neimi and him end up almost equal if she goes Sniper.
Dozla: Well... he's usable.
Saleh: FE8's Pent.
Rennac: FE8's Vaida.
Duessel: Great tank, can last until endgame fine.
Syrene: They weren't happy having 3 good Pegasus Knights on FE7. They wanted it like FE6...

Titania: Ashnard is the only thing stopping her laugh (unlike Seth)
Stefan: HAHAHAHA- (Ashnard again)
Devdan: If you got Nephenee killed somehow.
Tanith: Reinforcement. GG Free baits.
Shinon: Only on next game.
Calill: Usable
Tauroneo: Usable
Haar: Good.
Bastian: If you screw up with Soren, Illyana, Tormod AND Calill, don't use him anyway.
Lucia: We have Stefan, Mia and Zihark.
Geoffrey: Paragon, good bases stats, high level, good growths.
Elincia: Infinite Brave Sword 2.0

On FE10 90% of the units are promoted already.
If you're reading this, CONGRATULATIONS!! You're wasting your time!!

I disagree with

Harken vs Karel - karel kinda sucks. Harken is much better

Vaida - She is flying Harken. She can actually ORKO Limstella and she has DAT weapon rank
Real Metal bounces their breast. Deal with it

As far as it goes, I used them mostly for aesthetic reason, or I simply like them. Marcus, for example or Duessel for another is satisfying to use because of their cooler potraits. Then there's something like say.... Dagda who I actually liike

Being a good unit is just another bonus, and a high bonus at that

Yeah, same here.
I've used units like Arran, Zealot, Renault, Samson and Sheema (in the remake, at least), simply because I liked them as characters... Unless I'm doing a challenge run or something, I just use whomever I like. It makes the game more enjoyable.

Jagen characters, in particular, have always appealed to me. RD Sothe (if he can be considered one) is the only exception I can think of right now.

Misinterpreted. Should've said yes. I used Titania. She was freaking awesome.
