Heroes: New Banner for Heroes with Life and Death!

The latest skill-based Summoning Focus is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! Heroes with Life and Death features, unsurprisingly, heroes that come with the Life and Death skill: Hana, Minerva, and Jaffar. These three characters are also the only summonable heroes who start with that skill.

Life and Death is a useful A slot skill that sharply increases your hero’s Atk and Spd stats at the cost of losing points in Def and Res. The highest version of the skill is only currently available at 5★. As such, this is a great opportunity to score heroes with that skill, to use or pass on to other members of your team.

The Life and Death banner will be available for about two weeks until 18 August at 6:59am UTC. Good luck summoning new heroes to your cause!

    As tempting as it is for me to try and get Minerva… I’m not going to attempt this banner. On the 7th, we’re getting the Hero Fest banner, and I find it likely that at least one more banner with new units is going to come then or soon after as well. In other words, BAIT. I’m keeping my orbs.

      Indeed… Although I really want L&D units, I will wait for Hero Fest (and the 1.6 update!)

      I’m praying they replace the cavalry banner with a dancers banner, but I think that’s too much as ask…

      Hero fest is 10th. On the 7th you get the Roy banner for Lilina and Cecilia battle.

        Wait… what…


        How in the world did I misread that??? I really thought I read correctly that Hero Fest was on the 7th. Welp, thanks for pointing it out anyway. I feel really silly right now.

    (Notices that I only have 5 Orbs, and no more Daily Orbs) …FFFFFFFFFFFF-F**K!

    I got a pretty weak draw out of my attempt here, though I did get two 4* Merricks (who I didn’t have yet).

    When are we getting the free first pull?
