I was reading up on how you get better stats from pairing up certain characters and I did debate pairing Chrom with another character for my second playthrough but I just couldn't, lol. It's illogical and insane but I felt like it would taint the experience if I played it any other way. So my avatar is quite different this time but still paired with Chrom ^_^
i just finished the game with just 4 people, fem robin, chrom, morgan, and lucina. while it was kinda boring game play wise (morgan and robin with their ignis procs) it was really cool having the family i built up being the ones to beat the game.
