Heroes: Summoning Focus: New Power + Other Updates

The latest skill-based banner is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! Summoning Focus: New Power features four focus 5★ units: Caeda, Hinoka, Raven, and Felicia.

As you may recall, all four of these units received upgraded weapons in the recent 2.2 Update. Not only do they each get a new unique weapon, but you can upgrade those weapons further in the Weapon Refinery to be even better!

This new banner will be available for about two weeks, ending on 5 March.

Additionally, Heroes has had a few other small updates throughout the past couple days. Starting with today’s new season, Heroes has made some changing to matchmaking in both Arena and Arena Assault. The goal of the change is to better match players by strength.

The second new Warriors map is also available. These new maps feature Linde, and you can beat all three to earn up to three Orbs. Check them out in the Special Maps menu. The final map, this one featuring Minerva, should be coming out soon.

Finally, the “A Hero Rises” voting event is now over! As of yet, Heroes has not announced who the winner of the event was, but hopefully we should fine out soon. The winner of the event will be available to everyone as a free 5★ unit after beating a new paralogue scheduled to be released before the end of the month.

Cipher S12 Weekly Recap: First Daily Reveals + Winter Livestream Reminder!

Welcome to the first Fire Emblem Cipher S12 Weekly Recap! This 12th set contains cards from Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Genealogy of the Holy War. Now that we’re getting closer to the set’s release date, @fecipher has began its daily reveals. Let’s take a look at our first cards of the series!

Tellius cards form the main focus of S12, and the first half of the set is dedicated to them. Most of the cards revealed this week are from Tellius, including the very first card shown off on Monday: an unpromoted N card for Ike, his second cost 1 card. This card’s reveal was paired off with a digital version of the Medallion artwork.

We also got two N cards of a young Elena and Gawain, both together in a gorgeous joined-art panorama. All of these cards are drawn by Senri Kita, the official character portrait artist for the Tellius games. Kita has been a very prolific artist in Cipher as well, particularly for Tellius-related cards.

The final Tellius reveal of the week is also our first SR, and one of the most interesting cards of the set. It features a berserk Ike, possessed by the power of Lehran’s Medallion. This Ike is a beast on the Cipher battlefield, but unleashing his power also destroys your own allied cards. Use him with caution.

The twitter has also revealed two cards for each of the other games in the set. For Awakening, they shared N cards for both Chrom and Walhart, showcasing the Valmese focus in this portion of the set. On the Genealogy side, we get both an N and HN card for Eldigan, the main lord for the yellow block in S12.
