Heroes: Legendary Eitri & Mythic Thórr

Details for the next Mythic Heroes summoning event are here and there’s a little surprise or two… As expected, Eitri makes her debut, but instead of being a Mythic Hero, she’ll be a Legendary Hero. Also, joining her is Thórr, rather than Fafnir.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

Eitri and Thórr’s Legendary/Mythic Hero banner will be live from 30th November 2021, until the daily rollover on 14th December 2021 (UTC).

Also appearing are the following:

  • Red: Plumeria, Legendary Sigurd and Múspell
  • Blue: Legendary Dimitri, Fallen Dimitri and Nótt
  • Green: Dagr
  • Colorless: Bramimond, Legendary Corrin and Legendary Micaiah

Please continue for a breakdown of Eitri and Thórr abilities!

Heroes: Book V Ending Movie

The Fire Emblem Heroes team have released an ending movie for Book V, like the two books before it.

(For the Japanese version, please click here.)

In the video, presumably recorded just before the events of the final chapter of Book V, Eitri shares her thoughts with the Summoner. Fair warning: she doesn’t mince her words!

In other potentially related news, the next arena season will feature two Heroes yet to be revealed. Or is it one Hero with a really, really big hat?

Given the timing, these two Heroes should be a pair of Mythic Heroes introduced at the end of November. The most obvious guesses would be Eitri and Fafnir. Although, with her appearance in the latest Tempest Trials, Thórr could replace one of them.
