    Okay, I started uploading my Radiant Dawn Hard Mode videos on Youtube.

    And yes, it looks like the internet makes fun of the Dawn Brigade even more.

    As if Nintendo's never retconned a touchy subject for NA release. Vivian in Paper Mario, anyone? It could be a simple rewrite or minor character change. Yeah, not the same thing, but you get your game nonetheless.

    Well isn't it possible for incest in this game (ie Male Morgan and Lucina?)

    Also, Recently realized that Owain had a pretty good Mag stat for a swordsmaster so I gave him a Levin sword and he's just decimating things. Also gave him Sol (the sword) and the possibilities have just increased while he has 51 luk.

    Well, if Morgan and Lucina are siblings, then no, they can't attain an S support. That would be going too far, even by FE's standards.

    Lucina and Owain, on the other hand... they can S support each other. I really don't find that much better than Lucina x Morgan as siblings. Lucina and Owain are cousins. That's incest.

    From what little I've read about, though, isn't the whole brother-sister incest thing, like, the entire basis of the plot?

    Wow. Wow. WOW! I conquered Walhart's castle (on hard) solely using Chrom, Lucina, Gaius, Panne, Anna, and my avatar. That feeling of glory I had the first time when he was outside of the castle obliterating everything with Henry and Maribelle. The second time wasn't as bold but I am proud of going in suicidal and not losing a single man.

    Anywho, the + transformation stones, how are they (I can't tell since I already changed Panne and Nowi's classes)?

    Was this like an Oedipus thing where the person did not know that they were committing incest.

    I'm not saying exactly how it went in Oedipus (son and mother), but something similar, right?

    Hoenn has disappointed.

    P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.

    Don't read quote if you care about keeping FE4 plot points secrets.

    Holyn/Aira(Ira/Ayra)... (cousins) Highly plausible, and one of the better pairings.

    *-- Aideen (Rana and Lester's mother) and Briggid (Patty and Faval's mother) are Identical Twins. These couples are simultaneously "Kissing Cousins" and Half-"Brother/Sister Incest")
    I was thumbing through this thumbing through a Google search result and found this. Apparently, the main brother/sister incest was similar to Oedipus in that it wasn't known as such.

    In all honesty, I don't bother with Silver Swords. I'd use a Killing Edge over one any day. The difference in power is negligible, but the difference in crit rate sure isn't.

    I was. I also prefer Silver Swords because the damage is assured, whereas with a Killing Edge you're relying on luck. I keep Killing Edges around, but only use them if I can't kill a unit using the Silver Sword, they're more of a last resort.

    Eh, I might agree if the damage discrepancy was a little higher, but given a Silver Sword only has 2 more Mt than a Killing Edge, I find the damage potential of KE wildly exceeds that of a SS. It's just playstyle differences, I suppose... then again, maybe it's because I've always had good luck with crits.

    Though it balances out because I have horrible luck with evasion.

    Sometimes that extra 2-4 damage can make the difference.

    I'll give you an example of why I never count on luck. Sent Lon'qu in with a Killing Edge, 41% chance to Crit, and he was going to hit twice on this unit, figured it was a safe bet. Neither time did he get a crit, sent Donnel in to finish him off. Donnel Crits with a 10% chance. Rage. Rage everywhere.

    Hah. I guess it does boil down to personal experience. Slapped a Killer Lance on Sumia when trying to grind her up to Galeforce, and she was just critting all over the place. At least one attack (if not both) in every clash would crit. Much laughter was had.

    I like the Dancer class because it can be a great support by having units move again and since it can use swords in this game. Unfortunately, Olivia's stats aren't very good so I reclassed her to Myrmidon so she can increase her stats and then I would reclass her back to a Dancer so she can support my other units while maintaining good stats (I'm thinking of giving her a Killing Edge). Should I do this, keep her as a Myrmidon, or reclass her to something else?

    Totally up to you. Since she's the only Dancer though, I think she's most useful there.

    Since I've got to Chapter 11 I've had to make some decisions, since I'm marrying Chrom to Olivia I need to marry off Sumia and Maribelle. I've decided on pairing Sumia with Gaius and Miribelle with Vaike. Now to start getting into random battles to increase their support.

    I discovered that having only two units go through a reeking box induced prologue while paired up increases their support at a rate of one rank per two battles. Not sure if that stays true if you have three pairs.
    I have claimed Joltik. Deal with it.

    It's not a static rate. It depends on how many affinity increases you get. This number is influenced by instances of attacking (each clash will increase affinity), dual blocks, healing, etc. You can use the seemingly useless items such as Logs, Ladles, etc. to do less damage, thus making it so you engage in attacks more often, thus raising your support more. I've had it go from B -> A in a single battle this way. It depends on a few variables, but it's definitely not a static 1:2 ratio.

    She's great as a dancer. Though I've given her some skills to allow her to hold her own if she is attacked. My skill loadout for her as a Dancer is: Astra, Galeforce, Swordfaire, Special Dance, Lethality.

    The last skill is the only one I'm not sure of. This way, Olivia can take down an opponent, and at the same time allow another unit to move again. She's proven pretty deadly in most situations.

    Also, I equipped Owain with Levin Sword, Sol(Sword), Erika's Blade, Balmung, and a Killing Edge. Infinite durability? I think yes.

    Also, Chrom just did over 200 damage with a crit O_O

    I didn't think so; I simply stated my experience with the mechanic.

    Actually, I have Lucina and Owain's supports to S in my support log, and marriage isn't stated at any point in their support. Implied, perhaps, but then when you look at the info on who's married to whom, Lucina and Owain are referred to as Companion.

    Also, just finished Chapter 14, and I'm so happy for the goal "Defeat Commander" now. Seriously, 40+ enemies with ridiculous stats and a small map like that? There's no way I could last out all those enemies, especially being surrounded like that. I just had Lissa fly over and kill a Mage, while Panne followed with a Hammer and instantly killed the boss. 1-turn clear was totally worth it, no matter how much of a waste of EXP that was.

    In Path of Radiance, if you faced a flame lance with a bolt axe, would the bolt axe have double bonuses?

    Axe beats lance, and thunder beats fire.

    Is it just me or do archers and their promotes get the worst skills in this game? They only good one I see is Bowfaire, and that's only if you plan on continuously using a bow, which is only useful for characters like Virion.

    Also Severa, such a tsundere.
