Heroes: Alm’s Army & Celica’s Army Banners are Live!

Two new Summoning Focus banners are now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Alm’s Army banner contains 5★ versions of Mathilda, Gray, and Delthea, while Celica’s Army features 5★ versions of Leon, Saber, and Sonya. Check out our earlier article for introductory trailers and a breakdown of what these new heroes bring to the game.

In addition to the banners, the new Focus also includes our twelfth Story Mode chapter: Bitter Enemies. Beat all five maps on all three difficulties to earn 15 Orbs! You can also complete an associated series of quests to earn five additional Orbs. Check down below for quest details.

The new Summoning Focus and its quests will be available until 28 July at 6:59am UTC. Good luck summoning some new heroes!

Additionally, all Heroes players can receive 10 free Orbs, starting today, as an apology for an earlier error with the Version 1.5 update. Visit Feh to grab them!

    I played Chapter 12, and son of a b****, we were SO close to finding out Prince Bruno’s true identity. But nope, they ended in a cliffhanger, what a joke!

    Now, where was I? Oh yeah, SON OF A B****!! I wasted almost ALL of my Orbs, and I did NOT get a single character from either Alm’s army nor Celica’s army! WHY?! Why can’t I ever get those new heroes?! WHY IS THIS GAME STILL TROLLING ME WITH THOSE SAME WEAK HEROES?! WHYYYYYYY?!?!

    • Yeah, I don’t particularly like this whole 3-special-Heroes-at-a-time thing either, considering how, you know, we’re at like over 100 Units you can Summon if you count different-Star versions of Heroes as separate entries, and your chances of getting what you’re really after only go up like .5% at best for every 20 Orbs you blow out IF you didn’t end up getting a 5-Star you didn’t want(thanks a ton for ruining my Bridelia hunt, Sanaki). I’m still trying to find Hector so I can give my Roy Distant Counter because I don’t really want anyone but Roy, for example, but with all the new Units it’s only going to get worse for me. Plus, I’m reasonably certain the game is sentient and thrives off of disappointment and pain, so that factors in.

      • Sisyphe

        Yeah, I mentioned a few times before that I’d like to see them diversify the rarities of some of the characters. Just adding more 5* and new skills exclusive to those fives is just increasing the rarity of any given 5*. No one really has any realistic chance of getting someone they want without significant investment, and creativity suffers too.

      • Stranger

        It’s not the most orb-efficient, but pulling only from the colours of your desired unit does increase your chances of getting them. Your 5 star chance goes up all the time, and if you effectively negate the majority of the characters you don’t want, the odds get a nudge in your favour.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I had 17 orbs, and I got Delthea and Lyn (both 5 stars). I am happy, but I still want to get Gray.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      Now I have Mathilda too.

  • Sisyphe

    I don’t think I’m going to pull after all. I just don’t like my odds, even with the mountain of orbs they’ve given us. Besides, I feel like I used all of my good karma pulling Katerina (and I love her dearly). I’m more interested in Berkut, Clive, and Conrad, and it looks like they’ll just give them to me for free (Hero Battles). At least, I’m hoping. Also, Saber is a beautiful man, and his art has unfortunately robbed us of that.

    Got Mathilda and Sonya all I wanted!!!
