On Thursday, 22 March, Fire Emblem Cipher released its twelfth expansion: Raging Deluge!
This set features cards and characters from three different Fire Emblem worlds: Tellius (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn), Ylisse (Awakening), and Jugdral (Genealogy of the Holy War). Take a look down below for a look at the cards in the set, as well as its associated promo cards and other products.
WARNING: Some of the cards in this set contain story or character spoilers for these games. If you’re looking to avoid any spoilers, proceed with caution!
In case you missed it, the Awakening DLC Pack for Fire Emblem Warriors is actually scheduled for 29th March 2018, not 22nd March as reported by Famitsu.
Owain will have to control his sword hand for one more week…
This information comes from the game’s Japanese official site, which updated today with additional details about the upcoming DLC pack, as well as the free Version 1.5.0 update.
We’re guessing the Awakening DLC was originally planned for 22nd March and Famitsu forgot to change the date. This would also explain why the Awakening maps for Heroes were scheduled for 12-13th March, before being taken off the calendar.
Before continuing, we recommend reading our previous DLC article if you haven’t done so already.
Update: There has been a mistake. Despite Famitsu saying the DLC releases tomorrow (22nd March), it will actually come out on 29th March 2018.
Via this week’s Famitsu, we have details on the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors Awakening DLC Pack, which finally has a release date: tomorrow.
Thanks once again to Black Kite on Twitter for most of this info.
Olivia is the star of the DLC this time, using a unique fighting style. This DLC pack is similar to the previous pack in that it features one new play style and two clones of existing movesets that didn’t have clones at first.
It can probably be assumed that Olivia will share Azura’s refresh ability. However, how exactly she fights is kind of a mystery besides this one screen here; expect something graceful though. Also, her personal skill is Galeforce, which raises the Awakening and Warrior gauge each time a strong enemy is defeated.
Tharja is next, and from what we know of her, she’s a Robin clone that I’m guessing specializes in the HP and Magic stats very heavily. She might even have good defense since Dark Mages in Awakening were pretty tanky.
Tharja has Destruction Pact as her skill. When equipped, it gradually decreases the user’s HP as time passes. In exchange, the lower the user’s HP, the higher their attack power. Read more
