More FE Warriors Gameplay from San Diego Comic Con

It’s time once again for some more Fire Emblem Warriors analysis! GameXplain brought this to us from the San Diego Comic Con.

We got to see a bit of Lucina, Robin & Lissa along with some more Corrin gameplay.

Lucina seems to emulate her father’s style (like in Awakening), but with her own twists, such as quick thrusts which look to be a C1 attack (C refers to charge or strong attack and the number is where its used in your button combo, so C1 would be just doing a charge/strong move without any normals before it).

With it she can quickly change her direction and shift her positioning in a pinch, which will likely be a nice trick for speedrunners down the line.

Lucina is also voiced by Alexis Tipton like in Fire Emblem Heroes. She has done other roles such as Kid Trunks in the current Funimation dubs of anything Dragon Ball related, and Pascal in Nier: Automata.

Heroes: Cavalry Focus + Log-in Bonus Extended

Fire Emblem Heroes has two pieces of news to share today. Firstly, a Cavalry banner is now available until the new day begins on 5th August 2017.

The featured Heroes are Eldigan, Olwen and Titania. Useful if you’re still hunting for these characters or you’re still building a Horse Emblem team.

To celebrate the occasion, there will be Cavalry-related quests for the duration of the banner. Clear them all to earn 4 Orbs and a healthy amount of Universal Shards/Crystals. Full details can be found at the end.

Finally, the daily log-in bonus of 2 Orbs has been extended until the daily rollover on 28th July 2017, which coincides with the departure of the Alm’s Army and Celica’s Army banners.

Heroes: Incoming Berkut and New Arena Bonus Units

FE_HeroesJP just tweeted out confirmation on the next Grand Hero Battle for Berkut, which will begin starting tomorrow, July 18, and presumably running for about a week as is the standard we’ve been seeing for GHBs. This map will feature Berkut and his allies, fighting your team. What’s to note is the atypical unit placement for your allies, making first turn buffing a bit of a challenge.

Berkut himself is armed with the A skill Water Boost 3 and his personal Lance, both of which grant situational bonuses to the Resistance stat.

Water Boost 3: If unit has at least 3 more HP than enemy at the start of combat, unit receives Res+6 during combat.

Berkut’s Lance: 14 MT, 1 Rng, Grants Res+4 when the unit is under attack.

He’ll also boast the Ward Cavalry C skill (as currently seen on Eliwood) which grants Def/Res+4 to Cavalry combat stats within two spaces similar to Spur skills, and also possesses the Special skill Blazing Flame, (as currently seen on Jeorge), which hits two tiles to the left and right of the target for 1.5x (unit’s Atk minus foe’s Def or Res). Lastly, there will be an Infernal difficulty available, likely matching the previous Infernal challenges, offering a 4-star reward with a Hero Feather bonus.

Additionally, the new Arena season bonus units are announced. We’ll see the six units from the recent banners (Delthea, Mathilda, Gray, Saber, Sonya and Leon), as well as Grand Hero Battle unit Clarisse, VirionCecilia and Askrian Sharena.
