Heroes: Preview Trailer for Dauntless Crimeans Banner!

The Nintendo Mobile YouTube channel has released something exciting for Fire Emblem Heroes players! We now have the latest preview trailer for the upcoming Dauntless Crimeans banner. Check it out below!

The banner features three new 5★ heroes from Path of Radiance: Nephenee, Oscar, and Elincia. Nephenee was recently ‘leaked’ via her appearance in the Quick Hero Battle mini-game. All three characters come with at least one new weapon or skill. Check out the full unit breakdown below!

Releasing alongside the new banner is a new Story Mode chapter titled “Diabolical Bloodline”. It shows off the first in-game appearance of the Black Knight, who also appeared in the QHB, and continues on with the Zacharius story line.

The Dauntless Crimeans banner and new story chapter will both release tomorrow, 15 September, at 7:00am UTC.

    Amiti? Broken.
    Wrath? Broken.

    This’ll be fun.

    • Rider of Daein

      It will depend on the stat of Elincia: Amiti per se may be broken, but it will be non-inheritable (it is a named weapon) and if Elincia’s stats were bad than overall she woud not be broken at all.

    • Sisyphe

      I doubt Amiti will be broken. Or at least, that it will make Elincia broken. After all, she’s still a flier with a limited attack range, and almost certain to have low attack to balance (and because of the character). It’s the potential for flier buffs that concerns me a bit, but hey, she can’t be more ridiculous than Reinhardt. I can see how it looks that way though, given that it’s basically a brave weapon with more might and a smaller penalty. Wrath actually worries me more.

      • Goodperson25

        While low is relative so it certainly could be low enough to not be broken (and yeah over hyping happens) low atk to balance kinda implies they are also overhyping the effect, (though that could certainly happen) as for Elincia I don’t really see it, (but again low is relative, my average, above average or even great could easily be considered low) sure she had low str in PoR but 80% mag growth is pretty dang high up there (it’s atk not str so that could be worked into her atk here) and her Str isn’t low in RD.

      • Laggalot101

        I’m honestly kinda joking, it’s broken in a vacuum (being literally just a much better Brave Sword+), but the reality of the situation of course isn’t a vacuum. Going off Elincia’s Strength base and growth in Path of Radiance, it would be unlikely that her Attack is very high. Though either way, there is no doubt in my mind that she’s going to be very good and obviously the best Sword Flier, not even a contest, and there still is definitely potential for the Amiti – and as a result Elincia – to turn out broken, depending on what her stats are like.

        • Sisyphe

          Oh yeah, I agree she’s going to be really good, and my guess is that she’s going to be built for quad striking (she comes with death blow, oddly, and I can see a buffed desperation build already). My point is that I don’t think she’ll be meta-defining like Reinhardt and his ridiculous range, which is kind of what I think of when I think of broken. I realize you were mostly joking though

  • TheBraveGallade

    well neph is going to be high tier.

    elincia? it depends on just how high her speed and attack gets.

  • Sisyphe

    Haha! I knew Elincia was coming! I would have preferred more adult-looking art, but I am excited to have a shot at her, definitely one of the best characters in the series.

    I also expect Oscar to become 4* after his banner passes, so there’s a chance we’ll have easier access to Lancebreaker, if they make it learnable at 4* as well.

    Seeing Nephenee here kind of throws a wrench in the Tempest Trial predictions. Still expect the Black Knight to be a Hero Battle, but I wonder who our free unit will be?

  • Tenshi

    Didnt a leaker predict this banner alongside the tempest trials before they were revealed?

    If thats true, then thier leaks for october might also be true

    • Kirie

      Yes, they also said that the Black Knight would be the Hero reward for the upcoming TT and that we’ll be seeing an Arvis GHB and Jugdral banner in October.

      • Sisyphe

        That would be fun, though I’m interested to see how Heroes will deal with the glut of red mage villains the series has (given that dark tomes have been red so far)

      • Tenshi

        Arvis would be a dream come true, he happens to be my fav character

  • An Tran

    Two blues? Why not add in Bastion for some variety?

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Good thing I hoard my Orbs definitely gonna try for Nephenee and Elincia!

  • mrkisukes

    Thank Ashura that the Wrath skill is a B slot…just imagine how broken it would be if it could be paired with desperation…Wait, doesn’t the Sol Katti give Lyn desperation 2? Ideas…

    • Diovani Estivalet

      Give Wrath to Brave Ike, so he will have another way to reduce cooldown count.

      • TheBraveGallade

        1 turn Aether plz nerf

  • O.H. X-1990

    Oh nice, they’re bringing more Path of Radiance characters, Nephenee, Oscar, and Elincia, but the Black Knight becomes an unplayable boss of Chapter 13, along with Prince Bruno. Speaking of which, could this be the final battle against Bruno? Are we finally gonna find out if Bruno is really Zacharias? We can only hope.

  • kirindas

    I’m definitely going to try and get Nephenee and probably Elincia based on her stats. Hate the fact that Oscar is in the banner too since I’ll probably get trolled and get him while trying to earn Nephenee. >_<

  • Alexander Bodine

    Nice! Is Elinicia’s VA different? I can’t tell…

    • King Marth 64

      Elincia’s VA is different, the one in Heroes (Amanda Miller) shares the same voice role with Sully and Cherche from Awakening and returns in this game, her previous VA in Path of Radiance was Erica Evans.

  • CombatMagi

    Well I’m glad Nephenee’s A slot isn’t to great I’ve been saving a hector for when she got added to the game.

  • Larverto

    I knew I should have saved my orbs, instead of trying to get Ninian in the Tempest Trials banner lmao

    Oh well, I’m gonna still try to get Elincia. She’ll be good for a Flier Emblem team for sure.

  • Volttekka

    Aww, I wanted Nephenee to be the Tempest Trial reward unit.

    Also, why the actual fuck is Oscar here.
