  3. Worth 20k feathers to give a unit Aether for arena score?

I have some four star Chroms I can sack for aether. The unit in question who would get the special is Minerva.

I would promote a 4* Chrom just to give away Aether. Though it's not really worth it on Minerva since she's as durable as balsa wood.

First look at whether you can merge anyone in your main team. Merges are worth far more than Aether. Unless you’re really unlucky you shouldn’t be wasting feathers on aether until you’ve built up high merges on 3-4* available units.

As the finishing touch on a +10, maybe. Merges really should come first though. You really should pick out a base 3* unit in each color to build up, because getting 11 copies of a 4* or 5* base unit is a major pain.

I'd recommend against Minerva because she's 5* exclusive.

I'd strongly recommend for Effie or Sheena because they're easier to merge and have low SI value relative to Hector/Amelia. But I wouldn't promote for Aether, rather just SI a Chrom pity breaker.

Unless Minerva is a core unit on your arena team that won't be replaced anytime soon, I would not give her Aether.

Replacing a regular or AOE special with Aether would generally improve your team's arena score by 1. If you are on the cusp of being able to stay in tier 20 (i.e. getting opponents with scores of 698 or more), I would consider it.

Or if Aether is a key part of a units skill set. Like a steady breath dragon utilizing aether to deal immense damage and remain in QR range.

Well it’d be for a flier team I’ve been liking, but unfortunately my flier team is made up of five star exclusives. I don’t care about getting max points but maybe being able to stay in tier 20 would be nice...

Well it would be for a flier team but I didn’t consider aoe specials. How much of a bump would it be from ignis?

If anything I'd wait for Galeforce. Same SP cost, and Minerva actually has a decent chance of using it with her legendary killer weapon. (With QP sacred seal, she'd just need to double someone that can counterattack)

Overall though, it'd be better spent on merges for your other units. And unless you can get more Minervas, I wouldn't invest too heavily into her.

Without at least +12~ merges on your overall team, you won't be staying in tier 20 without an armor team.

If our understanding of arena score is correct, aether is worth 1.5 merges.

But I would wait until you can replace at least 3 units’ special before going ahead. The effect of +1 merges tend to be unnoticeable. Who knows what would change by the time you saved enough for 3 aether.
I need a sharp instrument... or blunt, blunt is good, too.
