Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
You know, Zingo…she’s pretty particular about the people she likes. She likes me, too. You know why? It’s cos we’re special. We are. There’s a lot of folks in here, just walking around. You can’t even tell they’re mutants. Not us. I got my eyes, my ears–you got your skin. And Zingo here is covered in fur. Covered all in hair, aren’t you, Zingo?
Honestly had no idea what to call this piece of fan art but decided to just give it a very cliche touch. I also tried a more semi-realistic look for our sweet cinnamon roll but I’m not sure if I should continue this for future drawings…
Busted. This is the best way to describe Lyn. Not only is she a Horse unit with more stats than any other horse unit, but the mobility lets her compete with Cordelia for No.1 Archer in the game. Cordelia still has more attack but Lyns horse more than makes up for that. On top of this She’s incredibly fast, comes with some great skills, and has access to +6 buffs. If you are stuck for choice Lyn is the best choice in this new banner.
So Lyns weapon is called Mulagir. It grants her speed +3 and if the foe is a magic user she will ignore their buffs in combat. Aka with her 28 res she uses it quite well. But it might seem underwhelming to some. She then has draconic aura, which is honestly decent on her, you may switch it out but still a fine choice. Swift sparrow is another amazing skill she had, +4 to attack and speed is amazing honestly. Sacaes blessing is erm…. Okay so it stops counters from axe, sword and lance users. See the problem? No? She uses a bow, aka they don’t normally counter, aka its only good against distant counter users. Its a nice niche? But the amount of units with distant counter isn’t enough to warrant this, your better off with desperation. Finally she has attack smoke, which is interesting. It works like dark breath so when you attack a unit, the surrounding units in 2 spaces suffer an attack drop. Its a niche skill as well, it dosen’t hurt to use it but there is better.
Overall as you can tell Lyn is meant to bait mages are destroy them. However her base set is full so reposition is the best assist or reciprocal aid.
Swift sparrow 2, quick riposte 2/3, Threaten defence 3/horse buff
So if you want her to do her default role then this set will let you do it well, she can take magical hits or at least one to then go on a killing rampage. Quick riposte lets her double incredibly fast mages like Linde, Tharja, Nino etc who who might survive otherwise, while then swift sparrow increase her speed on player phase. Luna is her best special generally, though Iceberg is a pick if you are +res.
+atk/spd - hp/def/res
Brave bow+, Ardent sacrifice, Luna/Draconic Aura
Life and death 3/Swift sparrow 2, Desperation 3, horse buff/threaten defence 3
So the standard bow user set, I don’t really need to say much you know the drill. However there is something important. with +atk and horse buffs she can OHKO every unit in the game bar; Effie, Zephiel, Lukas, Amelia, Summer robin and Gray. However take Amelia off if you use Luna. If every unit has fury the list is the same except a additional Henry, Saizo, Summer frederick and Corrin F. If using Life and death take everyone off Except Amelia, Zephiel, Effie and Corrin F. Aka thats really good except you need that support if not, she’ll just be under bride cordelia.
Swift sparrow 2, Cancel affinity 3, Threaten defence 3/horse buff
Again outclassed by the above set but she can be a mean raven mage killer, sniping them down before they can destroy her. She’ll ignore their buffs and their tome making them useless. However its a very niche set. I’d only use it if you really struggle with them. Though if you get 2 Lyns. You could always have two, one brave bow, one this set and you essentially check everything sooooo.
