Heroes: Bound Hero Battle: Ephraim & Eirika, New Artwork, & Flier Retweet Promotion!

A new battle event is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! You can challenge Bound Hero Battle: Ephraim & Eirika in the Special Maps menu. There’s also a new, matching banner wherein you can summon 5★ versions of Ephraim, Eirika, and Seth.

You can fight the Bound Hero Battle in up to three different difficulties and earn up to nine Orbs! Like previous iterations, all of your allies must survive the map in order to win. Both the BHB and its associated banner will be available until 13 September.

Additionally, we now have new Heroes artwork for Nephenee and the Black Knight! As of a few hours ago, you can fight both characters in the Quick Hero Battle mini-game.

There has been no official word on how we’ll see them in the game, but it will likely be soon. The most popular current theory is that they will appear in the upcoming Tempest Trials later this month. The title of the Trial, “Moment of Fate” is the same as the chapter title when Ike confronts the Black Knight in Path of Radiance.

Finally, @FE_Heroes_JP has started a new Flier-based Retweet promotion!

All Heroes players are encouraged to retweet the individual tweet images for either Est, Catria, Palla, or Narcian. The character with the most retweets by 11 September will be given out at a 4★ hero for all players! So either retweet your favourite character, or whichever one you’d most like to have in-game.

    New challenge? Time to trial and error it up. Also, it’s about time we got word on Nephenee and the Black Knight. Now when it comes to the fliers, I’d say Palla is the most useful for SI fodder with Palla giving the often used Moonblow. Next would be Narcian who is the only one that gives Lancebreaker at 4*. Least useful is Est much to the dismay of her own archetype.

    Well Infernal mode has me stumped so far. I guess I’ll wait for the community to bail me out. Love the artwork. Really hope I don’t have to try to pull for them (Nephenee seems like the Tempest Trials prize and I would’ve sworn the Black Knight would be a Hero Battle, except that one is currently scheduled for this month). I really hope the Black Knight makes armor more viable (Distant Counter Alondite with Amelia’s stats would be a good starting point).

    As for the fliers, has to be Narcian for exclusivity and Lancebreaker, but I would’ve really liked to see Hinoka here, even as a 4*, just for Hone Fliers

      Personally I think Black Knight will appear as the boss of the Tempest Trials and will be available as a GHB later on in October after the Trials are over. Just a theory, though.

      • Diovani Estivalet

        This is my thought too. Black Knight will be a GHB after the Trial ends. This will be like Clive, who appeared in the chapter maps and then as a reward in the Tempest Trial a month later.

        • Sisyphe

          I also think this is likely. I think it’s pretty much certain from the name of the event that he will appear as the final boss of the Trials, and given the timing, a Hero Battle in October would make sense. I’m really hoping though

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Ok, this Bound Hero Battle was surprisely easy! I got all 3 difficulties in my first try.

  • dmurr

    Why would you tweet for anyone but Narcian? You can summon the other 3 pretty easily.

    • Kirie

      Speaking personally, I tweeted for Palla. I still need a good Palla for Flier Emblem, and my only one right now has a bad nature. I seem to be unlucky summoning her. I guess it doesn’t help that most of the units I’ve wanted lately are Blues.

  • Snipergys Rmz

    Narcian sounds like coming out of nowhere between the White Wings xD ! Minerva or Michalis will have more reasons, but ok! Haha… Mmm, maybe I will go for Est this time since I already have a 5*Catria and a 4*Palla

    Slay me Nephenee.
