There’s quite a bit of news to cover for Heroes today, so without getting carried away with fluff, let’s just start with the elephant in the room.
Summoners hopefully used their time well to nab Female Robin and Navarre from their Grand Hero Battles, and complete their quests, too. While they’ve now departed, Summoners can quell their anticipation for the next Grand Hero Battle, as Xander has finally made his face known and his challenge available.
Of course, what would a Grand Hero Battle be without a dedicated Banner? This time, you can look forward to pulling Linde (convenient for the upcoming Voting Gauntlet and overall good unit), Arthur, Cordelia and Chrom.
Xander’s Grand Hero Battle and the Challenging Xander Banner will be available to challenge from today, until May 8 This is convenient, as on May 7, We’ll have the Fire Emblem Heroes v.1.3 Update available.
While little is absolutely confirmed for the 1.3 update, we could assume that much will be seen that was covered in the FEH Channel Livestream, including the new Veronica challenges and mysterious Masked swordfighter.
For other things to do, look no farther than the Arena, which has its new list of Bonus Units already revealed, both in game and on FE_Heroes_JP’s Twitter feed. This season, Bonus Units will feature Ike, Soren, Mist, Titania, Zephiel, Barst, Clarine, Hana, Felicia and Anna. This season will be a day shorter than the usual to prepare for the May 9th Arena Update patch. The May 9th Arena Update will likely include the five new maps as announced during the FEH Channel Livestream, as well as the scoring ladder, which will have more details hopefully shared as time draws more near.
Speaking of special units; Celica made her Heroes debute today in the form of the “Best Luck” roll for the Omikuji event. You can try to roll it yourself, but here’s the artwork just in case you’re curious.
That’s not all for the Omikuji event, however. Diligent fans should notice that all of the reward milestones have been achieved, so we can look forward to receiving some Hero Feathers and Orbs in the coming future. The Omikuji event will still be going on until May 7, so don’t give up on it yet just because the maximum goal’s been met. For all we know, another sneak peek might appear in the coming days, or as Intelligent Systems has done before, they may append the reward milestones list with another one or two milestones due to popularity.
If you’re looking for other ways to score some Orbs, look no further than the three May Quests lists, which contain up to 22 Orbs and 1,300 Hero Feathers (among other goodies like Dueling Crests, Shards and Crystals) for dedicated Summoners to earn. If you’re saving up for Celica or spending more orbs on Ike or the Hero Fest quartet, this might help you out.
Lastly, the May artwork for Hector and Tharja, as selected from the Choose Your Legends event, is now available, also via FE_Heroes_JP’s Twitter feed.
