Heroes: FEH Channel Covers 1.9, New Units and More!

Feh is back, and with quite a bit of news to enter the holiday season with. She covered quite a bit in her latest Feh Channel update, including new plot events, weapon forging, new character additions of fan favorites, and much much more.

If you were hoping to catch the latest Feh Channel update, but either missed it or just require a re-watch, well check it out!

For starters, Feh shares news about a Choose Your Legends update. They’ll be in the Farfetched Heroes banner, available tonight. We learn about the next bunch of four units earning credit as Choose Your Legends heroes, featuring Dorcas as the clear cut winner;

  • Dorcas, Serene Warrior (12th in Mens)
    • Artist: Soeda Ippei, Voice: Unnamed
      • Stout Tomahawk | 16 Mt | 1 Rng | Enables counterattack regardless of distance if this unit is attacked.
      • Draconic Aura
      • Fierce Stance | Grants Atk +6 during combat when this unit is attacked.
      • Quick Riposte 3
      • Infantry Pulse 3
  • Lute, Prodigy (13th in Ladies)
    • Artist: Seo Kouji, Voice: Brina Palencia
      • Weirding Tome | 14 Mt | 2 Rng | Grants Spd +3. At start of turn, all foes in cardinal directions and with Res 1 or more lower than unit, suffer Spd -5 until end of foe’s next turn
      • Rally Atk/Res | Grants Atk/Res +3 to adjacent ally until end of the turn.
      • HP/Res 2 | Grants HP +4, Res +2
      • Res Ploy 3 | At start of turn, all foes in cardinal directions and with Res 1 or more lower than unit, suffer Res -5 until end of foe’s next turn
  • Mia [FE Path of Radiance version], Lady of Blades (16th in Ladies)
    • Artist: Yoneyama Mai, Voice: Lani Minella
      • Resolute Blade | 16 Mt | 1 Rng | Grants Atk +3, Grants +10 to damage when Special triggers.
      • Luna
      • Flashing Blade 3 | If unit’s Spd – foes’ Spd >= 1, unit gains Special cooldown charge +1 per attack (doesn’t stack with other similar skills).
      • Vantage 3
  • Joshua, Tempest King (18th in Mens) *Not shown in video*
    • Artist: Fujiwara Ryo, Voice: Todd Haberkorn
      • Audhulma | 16 Mt | 1 Rng | Grants Res +5. Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1).
      • No other skills are known at the moment, but no new skills appear to exist in the database, implying Joshua will have no other unique skills, but perhaps re-used ones.

Lute, Mia and Dorcas will be part of this banner. Of course, there will also be some paralogues to collect orbs from, as well as missions with typical requirements.

If you’re wondering where Joshua is, don’t worry. Joshua will be a reward in the next Tempest Trials, slated to start on November 20. The folks over at GamePress were talented enough to mine out the artwork of the four early, so if you want a sneak peek, enjoy!

After that, we learn about Version 1.9. Notably, Staff Users are getting a big boost, learning new skills.

Sakura unlocks Fear + and Physic+, featuring Increased Mt by 7, and Atk-7 on Target and AoE within two tiles, while Physic + heals for more (50% of target’s HP). All skills for staff users that are exclusive (Martyr, Absorb, etc) get a + version!

Additionally, 18 special skills are having cooldowns reduced by 1, which is sure to mix things up all over the world! This includes many commonly unused skills (Sol, Glimmer, Astra, Night Sky, Daylight, Noontime) as well as all AoE skills (Blazing Wind, Growing Light).

Summoners can also get a free barrack expansion of 100 slots, regardless of how much it’s been expanded to.

Also, all maps will have required stamina consumption caps set to 10 for story and event maps, making missions and stories that much easier to complete.

The Weapon Refinery will also be unlocked, after beating the Rite of Blades story maps.

You can upgrade your weapons in a variety of ways, by spending unit SP as well as Arena Medals and Refining Stones, and the weapons will give different stats, not just attack (such as Def +4 and HP +5, in addition to a MT boost).

Arena Medals and Refining Stones will be available from beating the Arena, completing missions and more.


This isn’t limited to simply effect-less weapons, either. Shown during the video is Ephraim, upgrading Siegmund to  have 18 Mt and also builds in HP+3 as well as a new skill allowing him to assure follow-up attacks if HP >= 90%.

Special Weapons will require Divine Dew as a byproduct of upgrading other weapons with Refining Stones.

Possibly most excitingly, is that special weapons like Killing Edge+ and GronnWolf+ can be upgraded to Slaying Edge+ and Keen Gronnwolf+, as well as Tyrfing to Divine Tyrfing…there’s going to be a lot of new combinations.

We’re also getting a Legendary Hero Summoning Event, which will feature a special focus including eleven heroes such as Bride Cordelia, Spring Camilla, Hector, Celica, and the new mysterious hero.

This has an 8% summoning chance…that’s huge! On November 27, this banner will be available! Oh yea, that legendary hero? It’s Fjorm, of the Ice Kingdom.

Finally, we’re treated to a beautiful video featuring a video highlighting a new Askrian Lance hero, as well as three new villains, in an intense showcase of battle that is definitely a step up from the previous Heroes videos. The video follows an Ice vs Fire theme, covering the new story Book II.

Surtr, Ruler of Fire vs Fjorm, Princess of Ice, looks to give us a lot of combat. Chapters 1 and 2 of Book II will be available right away, with more available in the future.

What’s great about Fjorm? She’s free, with the completion of the Chapter 1 of Book II, via the Legendary Hero Summoning Event.

As Feh says, keep an eye on the Eavesdropping Owl, for sneak peaks at what’s yet to come. Details on this were unfortunately, left a bit vague.

This is really the Finally; at the very last minute of the Japanese version of the Feh Channel update made news about an official Fire Emblem Heroes mangaFire Emblem Heroes Everyday Life, set to release. Visit https://fire-emblem-heroes.com/ja/manga for more details.

And that’s that! Hopefully, that’ll keep you satisfied and looking forward to continuing to play Fire Emblem Heroes!

    Fjorm looks amazing she better be strong like in the trailer, the other changes are great help strengthen your units out more!

  • speedster

    they weren’t kidding when they promised to patch up healers and such. though they didn’t fix the summoning pool, a 8% chance with no % on non focus units. this looks like what hero fest was supposed to be. i’m guessing it’s 3 separate banners. upgrading killing weapons and older legendary weapons into their newer variants is quite nice

    • Chris Offner

      Considering my hard luck at getting halloween banner up to 5* with hardly anything to show for it, this 8% could be all kinds of nice…or just a hope crusher >.>

  • mrkisukes

    The weapon refinery helps lessen the power creep that has been happening. It’ll only be concerning if already OP weapons get this, but judging from what is said, OP weapons like Dire Thunder don’t seem to have this privilege…or at least hopefully none of the additional skill privileges.

    • Jorge Adrian Cabrera

      Yeah, it looks like Dire Thunder and Brave Weapons aren’t on the list for upgrades of any kind at all

  • Suicunesol

    “Everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked…”

  • zomburt
  • Morgan Rodgers

    Dorcas looks weird, he’s such a glaringly different art style from everyone else. I actually hate the art on most of the fighter/warrior class characters…

  • dmurr

    8% is nuts

    • Laggalot101

      Of course, part of that is achieved, because there’s no off-banner 5-star units, so the odds of pulling a banner unit is no higher than that of pulling off a Hero Fest, if I’m not mistaken. And with so many units on that single banner, there’s a good chance you may get your pity rate broken by a unit you weren’t looking for.

      That said, it’s still a great rate.

  • Sisyphe

    The staff boosts and barracks expansion were sorely needed, but the new heroes just seem like more power creep, and they didn’t do anything about the tremendous rarity imbalance. I’ll reserve judgment on the new story and weapon refinery, I guess

  • So I had to shell out over $800 on car repairs. So I vowed to not spend money on these games (since I play more than Heroes) unless its extreme circumstances (like guaranteed 5 stars like FGO does during new years). So pulling a -hp +res Lute with my free pull made me happy. With Fury, girl reaches 40 res.

  • Sentinel

    I wished the wording was better when they said Book 2 was coming “right away”, since obviously it isn’t here now.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Book 2, huh? Well, when will it arrive? They obviously lied when they said that it’s coming right away.

    • Laggalot101

      It’s not worded great, but the narrator was still talking about “what’s coming with the next update”, which they’ve also stated will come later this month. When that update hits, it will add book 2, with 2 chapters right from the get-go.

  • Theroonco

    They didn’t fix the 5* Pool, but my goodness was this the best 18 minutes I’ve spent in a long time. This was amazing and Heroes looks set to have an amazing November. I can’t wait for the buffs, forging and Book 2! (Here’s hoping Sieglinde gets specialised upgrades too!)

  • Holy cow, this is insane! Finally getting Joshua, for free no less(let’s be real, Tempest Trials heroes are practically free), a fancy new lance user, also for free, a way for me to make Our Boi’s™ Binding Blade actually useful, a Legendary Summoning event to allow me another shot at Cordelia, Spring Camilla, and…WAIT IS THAT SPRING XANDER?! NO! WHY?! GET HIM AWAY FROM ME! I DON’T NEED MORE SPRING XANDER HE’S USELESS!!!

    …and being the ingrate I am, I’m still crying in the corner about the lack of the Eight Legends…

  • Nick

    … is it just me or does Feh sound like a character from Dangan Ronpa??
    anyway though this is exciting, things are gonna get crazy with weapon forges. And Im glad about the expanded barracks. Im really glad this game isnt becoming pay to win, no fan favorites locked behind 200+ dollars and you dont even need to spend a dime on this game to begin with
