    This is our 5th tempest trial, 2nd one to have 40% bonus be all 5* exclusive, and the 1st one to have a banner introduce a new unit in Ayra (Intsys pls, why you bait us like this), when previous tempest banners were all old units.

    Honestly, that's a worrying pattern if they keep this up that all 40% bonus units are 5* exclusives.

    The 40% bonus units in banner are Ayra, Sigurd, Deirdre and Tailtiu.
    The 20% bonus units are Arvis, Eldigan, Lachesis, Arden

    Seliph and Julia are absent. Looks like this is a Genealogy Generation 1 exclusive tempest.

    If you didn't pull anyone, gotta hoof it with Arvis and Arden. If you want to pull for 40% bonus unit, Sigurd's banner is better than the actual tempest banner (just like with dauntless Crimeans).

    Quest Rewards
    • Arden (4Star)
    • Arden (5Star)
    • Brash Assault 1
    • Atk Smoke 1
    • Guidance 1 (oh my)
    • (some reward tiers give sacred coins)

    Gotta put sigurd to work. Gotta build a team around him to score for AA. And he's not even as op as Elincia from last tempest :confused::confused:

    to be fair to Sigurd, him and Elincia are two very different things. She is a player phase attacker, and he is an enemy phase tank, so its less "one is more OP than the other" and more "they are built differently to do different things".

    So my nightmare came alive. I knew IS was going to pull some shitty thing like this. I just hoped they remembered Julia and Seliph existed and one of them was the 4th 40% bonus hero.

    It looks like I will have to pull after all. Hate the changes. I hope everyone is sending bad feedback to IS. This can't become a trend.

    The thing about tempest trials though, is that player phase units fare so much better than enemy phase because the enemy units have ridiculously buffed stats. If you can hit and run with player phase units you can chip them or outright kill them with desperation and quads, even killing things with triangle disadvantage in elincia's case.

    With Sigurd, he can't tank blue units, especially not for 7 rounds of Tempest trials...

    I'm gonna put healcina back to work and see if I can heal him and get him through all 7 stages... I highly doubt it though. If he's not a good unit to run the tempest and I don't pull that green mage bonus unit I'm gonna just put him on team 2 and go for AB finish instead of AA.

    Last tempest with op elincia I was able to complete 100k like 5 days before tempest was over. Didn't care to get more coz the ranks don't mean anything, just feathers.

    Enemy phase unit reporting for Hector's mini-tempest (this is the last stage if you recognize it). Dude went through lunatic 7 and reached the last stage having lost only 4 HP in total by the time we ran into super buffed Hector.

    There's also this (although we all know how crappy Caeda's atk stat is, even as she is buffed as a tempest enemy.
    [​IMG]
    Pardon the crappy score, but I was bored with Lyn/Reinhardt sweeping everything so I sent in flier team with no bonus unit for fun. Yes, a team built around a defensive enemy phase unit can beat all 7 stages of lunatic tempest w/o the need for team 2. Of course you can argue that B/B yields better than E/A, but I wouldn't look down a good enemy phase unit's ability to survive 7 stages, or consider enemy phase to be a bad thing to have in tempest.

    That hinoka... I want her so badly... When will we get a banner for her :p:p

    Or another Hector banner so I can turn Sigurd to a better counter tank. I don't want to sacrifice my one and only Hector :p:p

    My first run. It's much easier than I thought... Delthea and quadelia murdering everything basically.

    Sigurd obscenely tanky in tempest stats. Fully buffed and supported. Also hits hard and fast. Dude also survived BOTH reinhardt and bowlyn attacking him in arena today.

    Looks like I'm going in raw with Arvis :/ I don't mind I guess since I'm probably just going to aim for 40,000 points. But a frustrating trend to say the least

    I only gave my sigurd reposition and bonfire. What is the reason for smite instead of reposition? I never used it before, any situation where smite works well?

    To get armored units around I guess. That's all I can think. Personally, I use reposition as well.

    I ran out of reposition fodder, Smite is a filler from excess bartres. Also fitting for "don't push me" memes.

    After a few runs I gave him sol as special. Works incredibly well and keeps him alive.
