Heroes: Heroes with Falchion Banner!

Another new Summoning Focus is live in Fire Emblem Heroes! You’ll be hoping for a lot of Red orbs if you decide to summon from the Heroes with Falchion Banner.

This banner contains focus 5★ units of our four Falchion wielders: Marth, Alm, Chrom, and Lucina. These four units all received Weapon Refinery upgrades in the recent update. Check out our earlier article to see how you can improve all three different Falchions!

The Heroes with Falchion Banner will be available until 14 March at 7:59am UTC.

    This is an awful banner, with only red focus units and it still does not have an increased rate of red orbs. I don’t know how many people will actually go for this banner despite Alm’s new status as the new best dragon slayer. Plus half of them are 4* available anyways so why even both?

    • Diovani Estivalet

      IS should made this banner a 5% rate. Oh well, I prefer to not use my orbs on this banner too. I am sure Alm will appear in a future Legendary Banner.

    Aaand my weird luck continues with a free five star Roy? Neutral, too. I don’t particularly mind this result, back on Alm’s last two banners I was a dolphin and got myself a +1 version because I lacked a Falchion user in April. Double Lion is good people, but it really isn’t worth whaling for. You likely have masked Lucina, and she should fill that role just fine. That being said, if you want to pull, go on ahead, and good luck.

    It´s like a fun Troll-Banner, not a Evil Troll-Banner like the first Ayra one with Eldigan.

  • Morgan Rodgers

    This banner is definitely poorly-thought out. At least I “scored” a 5* Cain on my free draw…

    You know what they SHOULD have done with this? Make it so that you can CHOOSE which character you want to have for that Falchion like they did in the CYL one.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      Hm… I disagree. This is not a special banner to have a free unit. Also, 2 of the focus units can be summon as 4-star units, making the only choices for 5-star exclusive being Lucina and Alm. And, you know mostly all the players would choose Alm.
      A limited banner, like Nohrian Summer and Winter Envoy, should have a free choice unit, not this type of banner.

      • . (Omega)

        No way. This is a single banner showing only sword units. ONLY Sword units. Meaning that its red orbs. And they don’t always give us red orbs. So this banner is terrible because it does not give the distribution that prevents anyone from getting a unit they might want.

        • Diovani Estivalet

          I agree with you. This banner was not made right, but that’s doesn’t mean they should give us a free unit. Mostly of the player just want Alm from this banner. With a free unit, players would not summon or spend money on this banner.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Honestly… this was not that bad. I decide to spend some orbs on this banner, and I got a 4-star Soleil (I didn’t have her yet, and she is +Atk so… yeah), a 5-star Eirika (ok…) and, for my surprise, a Alm! Yay! Brave Falchion user! Now I only need Divine Dew…

  • speedster

    The odds of pulling a 5* focus unit is around 10%. Not really a good banner to snipe for. Probably just to get a dragon killer

  • Kneekicker

    Spooked by Brave Lucina and regular Lucina in my first round of summoning, so I managed to pull a great haul on this banner. Now if only this kind of absurd luck can hit me on the banners that actually matter like the limited ones, I’ll be happy.

  • Shenai

    After Lucina was my pitybreaker on my once again failed attempt to get Celica I now have all four of these anyway. My free orb was a round of no red orbs at all and gave me a Wrys… oh well.

    Personally I like using Marth best of these, but maybe I’ll refine Alm’s Falchion some day and he’ll be better. Chrom was my first 5* so will always be special.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      I like Marth too. His refinement is really good. My objective is to make a +10 Marth. I am in +5 now.

      • Shenai

        4* or 5*?

        • Diovani Estivalet

          I have a 5-stars + 5 Marth.

          • Shenai

            That’s true dedication.

          • Diovani Estivalet

            Hail to the Hero-King!
            I always get happy when I get a 4-stars Marth.
            He has: Refined Falchion, Reposition, Aether, Steady Breath, Swordbreaker 3, Drive Spd 3, Close Def Sacred Seal, and S-Rank support with Summoner.
            Marth’s stats are (with summoner support): HP 54 HP / Atk 51 / Spd 38 / Def 33 / Res 24.
            I know he is not the best sword user in the game, but I like him.

          • Shenai

            My highest 5* merge is +4, it’s Inigo, I really wanted a PA Azura back then but really wasn’t meant to have her… anything else is +2 (2) at most or +1 (7).

            But my 4*+10 Raven with the refined Basilikos actually carried me to Tier 20 this week. I’m not sure what I’m even doing there, it feels weird XD
            He doesn’t have summoner support, but ally support with VL Ike, his stats without that are 42/60/48/25/22, with Fury. He’s got the earth blessing too, so in earth season and next to Ike that would be 45/64/50/27/24.

            My Marth is mostly support for TT 🙂 he’s +Spd. Also with Fury, Reciprocal Aid, Renewal and Hone Spd. I’m still saving up to refine his Falchion. Yours is obviously heavily invested in 😀 he’s nice.
            My summoner support is Nino^^ but she’s unmerged.

          • Diovani Estivalet

            I was considering to give my Marth Reciprocal Aid or Ardent Sacrifice.
            My second higher merge unit is a 4-Stars Olivia (+7). I also have 8 Catrias 4-stars, but I don’t want to merge them. The other unit I am considering for the merging is Masker Marth. I already gave her (oops, spoiler) the “our bond gives me strength” Falchion.
            I got Alm in this banner (lucky), so maybe he will be next in the Refinement, But I need more 10 Divine Dews for it.

          • Shenai

            In TT I don’t really need help killing green (Nino kills all) so support is nice and Falchion + Renewal + Reciprocal Aid = healer. I’ve used Alm similarly in the past when he was a bonus unit.

            I have Eliwood, Raven, Cherche, Cecilia and Merric as 4*+10 and a few more high merges with 4*, like Ogma, male Corrin, Eirika, Felicia, Lilina and Lissa (+7 to +9, depending).

            Oh no, poor Nino. I find she’s still my go to answer to “how do I kill x” since she’s still capable of defeating almost anything with the standard Bladetome, Fury, Desperation set. Mine’s +ATk, got her summoner support and if necessary S support with Ninian, properly buffed and in desperation range, maybe even with Draconic Aura charged, there’s really not much of anything that can survive her, even as an unmerged 5*.
            My LA Lilina has somewhat hopeless IVs of +HP -Spd so I guess she’ll be just for the collection… don’t see her replacing Cecilia and even then Gunnthra would be the choice before that.

    • Daniel Smith

      Chrom was my 2nd 5* He also holds a special place in my heart…

      I am a sentimental player… So I will always hold on to the old ones… even if bad

      • Shenai

        Same here, mine has terrible IVs, but I still won’t change him.

  • O.H. X-1990

    First I can’t get Celica, and now I can’t get Alm! To hell with this bullcrap, I refused to be trolled with another pity breaker again!

    • speedster

      you really should’t pull on this banner since your pity can get broken by red (it’s pretty infamous for that) as well as other falchion users. just wait a few months until alm gets a new banner

      • O.H. X-1990

        Oh, you mean like the next Legendary Hero Banner? Yeah, that’ll be the day.
