I honestly don't get it.... why is everyone freaking out about her? I have a pull of her with perfect IVs (+Spd -Res) and she's good... but not meta defining or game breaking. Heck, I still prefer my Ryoma over her, and it's not even close.
I haven't played the game she's from... is her character really well done or something? Cause Heroes wise, she doesn't seem worth the hype.

I get the shady thing, but in order to care about the bait and switch you have to care about the character and I just don't see why I should.

A lot of people are fans of the game where she was from actually (or so I've heard). I would feel the same if that happened to Lyn since i was a big fan of Blazing Sword.

No you do not. Seriously. Hundreds of topics on the subject. Go check 'em out.

She's one of the fan-favorite characters of FE4, and is the original female swordmaster. She also has the same boosted stats that were originally unique to the CYL units (and for no apparent reason), along with having a unique sword and skill, iirc.

You shouldn't. She's not that great. Her stats are abit higher but she's still a red sword user so the meta immediately makes her subpar.

Unless you like her character theirs not much point of careing.

She just seems like powercreep to me. I don't think her presentation is fantastic (though I hear she has a lot of fans), but she has 5-6 more base stats than your precious Ryoma, an insane weapon passive and an insane exclusive special.

The thing with heavy blade effects is it wasn't easy to ensure you always had more attack than your enemies to make it work. It was considered a gimmick in arena and it was almost impossible to use reliably in the high-end PvE content because of inflated stats. With Ayra, her weapon gives her speed, she's just about the speediest sword in the game now, comes with swift sparrow, and if that wasn't enough, assuming phantom speed seal works, she will be guaranteed to always have +1 cooldown reduction for her 2 CD skill that grants damage BASED ON SPEED.

Edit: I have her, +atk -def. I'm just worried about the game getting too power-creepy.

Edit 2: The one thing I positive I can say about Ayra, though, is that she's easily counterable. Her res is bad so you can easily nuke her, and she doesn't have any safeguards (like DC vantage, Sigurd's magic reduction passives, Urvan, etc.) to keep her alive besides high speed. I think that in itself is a good approach. At least she's not powercreep and has BS mechanics that make her a nightmare in arena.

Because if you don't care now, they'll keep doing it until they eventually hit someone you do care about.

Either directly, or indirectly in the form of obsoleting them.

I think she's far better than Ryoma for the simple fact that she can kill Lancers. Ryoma can only dream of doing that. Ryoma is overrated.

Also red swords are becoming more useful since greens are pretty popular again.

This is very impressive, she can kill an opposing color that should beat her. She also gets into desperation out of this

You're lying to yourself if you think "she's not that good".
