I'd give it a 9/10 so far myself, but I'm only halfway through. It has some minor issues that drag it down, but it's my favorite Fire Emblem yet.



Around the Network

The battles are great. But the exploring it tedious and boring. Too much talking. 8/10 so far, I'm 20 hours in.



I decided to restart at 25 hours in, since I wasn't building some of my characters right. Best practice is to class up as soon as you hit the level. Higher classes offer you better stat growth. For example: If you wait until level 8 to change to a beginner class you'll lose out on three levels of beginner class growth. I had two or three characters at level 19 and they hadn't reached their intermediate class yet. They also didn't pass their beginner's exam until levels 8-9. -_-

It should go much faster this time, since I won't be running around talking to everybody. A lot of my time on my first time with the game was spent just letting the characters talk, so that I could enjoy the voice acting. This time I'll just be mashing A on needed conversations, and skipping talking to people entirely.

Serenes Forest is an amazing resource for Fire Emblem fans. It's been a while since I used it but I think it's time to break it out again. Posting here because I think some people will find it useful. Breaks down the base stats and growth rates and max stats of different units, the modifiers to stats that classes add, and eventually it'll probably have a complete guide of every calculation the game does, if they do what they did for past games in the series.

Mild spoiler warning, as the lists will obviously contain characters and elements you may not have seen yet.



I just finished the three houses (not done with the 4th play through though) and I have to say, giving this anything over an 8 is too generous. The way they handled some story elements was really bad, like rushed AAA levels of bad. To the point where it brings down the entire experience. This was my most hyped game for 2019 (alonside TCSIII) and it failed a little bit to meet my expectations. Still a great game though, but imo the score is a little too high.

You know you can skip all of that if you want to. You dont have to talk to everyone in the school. You can just do the quests/activities, or talk to the people in your class or the students you want to recruit. 

The game give you sooo many options to enjoy the game.

If you didnt enjoy it as you expected doesnt mean everyone will have the same opinion as you. If you have been lurking on review sites/forums/ social media. Your opinion is the minority.

Yeah. I kept reading on what people are doing on reddit. Seems like that is the best way. The only reason to wait is because of the skill you get. But definetly not in the early class.

A smooth sailling 30 hours + so far and I'm now on the 12th month of the calendar year (just before the ball). It is nice that some plot points are finally starting to pick up and that the tension is rising up. The characters interactions and their dialogue in the support conversation never cease to amaze me though :D

Honestly, I'd like to call fake on this one. it wouldn't be an healthy thing to begin with. The game was released only 10 days ago !
