It’s been a heck of a week for Heroes players, but Nintendo won’t stop their momentum. With the end of Launch Celebration Event and the Blue Crow: Ursula Special Maps, players will need to find new ways to keep their Orb count up. Fortunately, we now have Daily Missions to look forward to, as well as a new Paralogue, Blazing Shadows.
Blazing Shadows is now available, and like all paralogues before it, offer three chapters with three difficulties each, yielding orbs aplenty to drop into your pocket or into the new Banner.
Speaking of the new Banner, we have some exciting new characters to join the spotlight. FE_Heroes_JP Twitter was kind enough to post the official artwork of the newcomers.
A few twists come with the fresh faces, as Lucius appears to be designated as a Staff user rather than a Light mage as he was depicted in his origin. However, the neatest treat appears to be that Ninian boasts the fairly unique Dance ability, but brandishes a blue breath as her weapon, making her a Dancing Dragon of sorts.
Other details include the Arena being reopened, with Bonus units of the previous week’s entourage (Jagen, Sully, F!Robin and the Sibling Bonds sextet). In addition, the new season is offering more feathers based on your high score, so unlocking potential shouldn’t be such a struggle for the immediate future. Feathers will now be awarded to players with an offensive score exceeding 4,001, and blocked out in intervals of 200 from 4,001, downward. Defense ranks have also been blocked out, allowing more rewards for any defense at all. It’s a fighter’s world!
Other quests have been added in as well, including the first quest to actually reward a unit, Clearing Paralogue 3-2 with a Sword user on your team. This yields Draug, an armored sword user. Other prizes, such as Orbs, Dueling Crests, shards and more can be accessed through the Blazing Shadows quests.
Another tidbit is that the Voting Gauntlet’s finale was officially declared a huge hit, accumulating over 45.3 million votes worth in points. The 20 Orbs and other prizes are now available because of the incredible success of the first Gauntlet!
Furthermore, a new banner has been datamined, featuring Eliwood, Gordin, Minerva and Severa. Furthermore, it appears as the next upcoming Grand Hero Battle will feature Michalis, Minerva’s brother.*
