End of a Paralogue (these things take forever!), literally 3 units left on the map, I had BEAST growths on all the chars this paralogue.

I leave a Dread Fighter Kaze just in range of 1 wyvern lord. My Kaze is paired up and at full health with 34 HP.

The Wyvern Lord casually closes in for a hit, has 12 damage with a 20% something chance hit and 3% critical. I get critical'd.


Whereas I can fail a decisive blow at 95% hit, or my skills proc on the second hit when they don't matter. This random bs is annoying as all hell sometimes.

You've failed to sacrifice your gold to the RNG goddess.

You claim to love FE, but are still surprised by stuff like this?
Not changing this until Isaac gets in Smash.

Why would you use Kaze to lure in an enemy? Surely you have tanker units?

There are plenty of defensive units that won't die right away to an unlucky RNG roll.

You just had to use one of the characters with the lowest critical evade to lure one of the physically strongest enemy units out?

I know, alas, some other flying units decided to close in the previous turn and my tanks were all busy somewhere else, it was the only move I could make that ran the lowest risk of failure; I could've left the wyvern lord Kaze killed alive and risk it smashing Rhajat or some other squishy unit. The problem is these minuscule chances of failure getting you right at the end of a chapter.

You have to be extra careful at the end of a chapter when on classic. I remember chapter 15 my avatar had a 92% displayed hit to kill the boss but if he missed he would die instead. So even though the exp would be completely wasted I still used Gunterto get the kill.

I never said I was surprised, I merely said it can be a chore redoing a chapter for crap like this. Believe me, I'm no stranger to redoing chapters for bad level ups or being surprise falcon punch'd by these ridiculous 1%+ critical and low hit shenanigans.

However it wasn't as bad when I was at school and I had a lot more time to burn. Nowadays, working two jobs and barely having time to play, it is more than a casual nuisance. :(
