    • >>[63] dat **desperation** is so amazing though. I have so many wack strategies for it. from how I understand it, it doesnt have an HP requirement.
      plus Byleth is pulling a S!noire with that damaged art. might spend 100ish orbs

    • >>[24] well, in this specific banner, there are no pity breakers or non-focus 5 stars so the odds of you getting 2 5* focuses in one session is pretty high compared to other banners
      Still, the people here are very lucky lmao i would love a sothis, azura or a legendary seliph
