Heroes: Dauntless Crimeans Summoning Focus & Log-In Bonus!

Three new heroes have arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Dauntless Crimeans Summoning Focus contains new 5★ characters from Path of Radiance: Nephenee, Oscar, and Elincia. Read our earlier post for their introductory trailer and a breakdown of their new abilities.

A new Story Mode chapter, “Diabolical Bloodline“, is also available now! The chapter shows off the new characters in action, and also continues the Heroes plot. Complete all five chapters on all three difficulties for 15 Orbs! You can also earn some additional orbs by completing the Diabolical Bloodline quests. Check out the details below.

To celebrate the release of these new characters, Heroes has started a new log-in bonus! All players will get additional orbs on log-in for the duration of the event.

The Dauntless Crimeans summoning focus and its associated quests and log-in bonuses will be available for about two weeks until 29 September at 6:59am UTC.

Today also marks the end of the Mini Tempest Trials event! You can pick up your rank rewards and read the end of the story once final results have been calculated. According to the September schedule, the next full Tempest Trials will be starting up again shortly on 23 September.

    So my karma finally kicked in a little got Nephenee and Elincia in my first summoning round. Took me another 120ish orbs to get Oscar (another Nephenee would have been fine though) but hey I got him. So unless I really hate Nephenee’s boon/bane and feel like I need to go for another, I didn’t have to spend a dime. Also holy crap the Black Knight’s Black Luna special, that 80% reduction, I would be relatively shocked if they made that available to everyone through SI. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if localization changed the name from Black Luna I wonder why they didn’t just call it Eclipse. Also its probably going to have to get regular Luna before it like you have to get Sol before Aether.

    • Sisyphe

      It specifies in the text that Black Luna can’t be inherited. Don’t know why they didn’t call it eclipse though

      • Laggalot101

        I suppose it has something to do with how Eclipse in Japanese was still just called Luna. It had the exact same name as the standard version, it was just more powerful. So I guess for the localization in Heroes, they went with that, but they added ‘Black’ to differentiate it from the regular counterpart, kinda like the ‘Dark Excalibur’ and ‘Dark Aura’ that Sonya and Delthea have. That’d be my guess. Still a missed opportunity, though…

  • Sisyphe

    So Elincia has better attack than I would’ve thought. So she’s really good. Nephenee’s stat spread is also pretty daunting.

  • Bongo Beans

    Double Oscar, first pull 🙁

  • Kneekicker

    I spent 98 orbs trying to get Nephenee or Oscar but all I got were Effies and Donnels.

    On the bright side, I ended up getting 5 star Faye and Genny for my trouble.

  • Familyplayer

    As everyone theorized, I got an Oscar before any Nephenee

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Now I am 99% sure: Black Knight will be the reward for the Tempest Trial. We already have Black Knight stats, and there are only his base stats, without boon or bane. This could mean he as a GHB, but we only have his 4 and 5 stats stats, and normally GHB units have theirs 3 stats stats too. So… yes, he will probably be the reward of this new Tempest Trial, and as a reward unit… he is pretty good! Good HP, Atk, Spd and Def, and only low on his Res. Alondite with counterattack, and Black Luna as a exclusive special. With his Def + Steady Stance, Bonfire and Ignis could be also pretty good choises for his Special, although Black Luna have cooldown of 3 and this is great, but it costs the same as Aether (500 SP).

    • Espiritu

      I did find it funny LuckyCrit the Youtuber kept trying to tell every one it was not real that it would be in the Tempest Trials.

    • Sisyphe

      I believe a datamine has confirmed it, though I’m not surprised people were skeptical. He’s an odd prize. Also, he is really good, especially for a free unit, although it’s kind of a travesty they didn’t name his skill “eclipse”.

  • yop

    45 stones got me neph

  • Haha… Got Rebecca and Ogma in 120 orbs. Not ideal but it’s not like I want any of the focus heroes that badly, was mainly going for the skills.

  • chrillo

    First Summon got me Neph, and the second got me a 5 star Ryoma, so all in all, it went pretty well

  • Ian H. Mellett

    While I like Oscar a lot (he’s a mainstay in my PoR playthroughs, and I’ve taken to the endgame in RD a few times), it seems a bit odd he’s paired with these two, especially with neither Boyd nor Kieran. That said, I got Neph in my first set of summoning, which is nice. Would like to get the other two, but I have to build up my orbs a bit more before doing so.

    • CombatMagi

      I usually use Oscar a lot too especially in PoR. RD messed with the paladins to much I liked PoR flexibility. As for why he was included I’ve been kinda wondering that as well especially since its only a 3 person banner. They probably could have easily thrown in another Crimean like Kieran, Shinon, or Rhys if they didn’t want to do another sword or lance user.
      Edit: I say easily but I know more goes into putting in a character into the game than just saying “lets put in this guy”

      • Fallen Crow

        I wish they would have included Brom instead of Oscar. It would make more sense since they are crimean citizens. (So is Oscar, but it would have been cooler to see him in a brothers banner with Boyd and Rolf.) Maybe they did 2 lance units to help in the tempest trial against the Black Knight? Who knows at this point.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Well, there you have it, Prince Bruno is, in fact, Zacharias. Mystery solved.

    And yet, I couldn’t get Elincia, Oscar, or Nephenee. And to add insult to injury, I ended up getting a 3-Star Male Robin as my free summon! Not to mention getting a 4-Star Reindhart, twice in a row, which I already have a 5-Star Reindhart! This game just doesn’t know when to stop trolling me with weaker Heroes!

  • Suicunesol

    lol… I… uhh… pulled Nephenee on my free pull. >.> Guess my orbs are spared…
