Heroes: The Branded King Summoning Focus is Live!

Three new heroes have arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Branded King Summoning Focus contains a new, mounted version of Chrom as well as two new characters for Female Morgan and Male Morgan. Check out our earlier article for their preview trailer and a skill breakdown.

A new story update is also available with the new banner: Book II, Chapter 6: The True Quarry. Princess Gunnthrá wants the Order of Heroes to meet her to the west in the sanctuary at Snjárhof. However, Múspell’s forces led by General Laegjarn seek to stop them and are tightening the search net around them…

Completing all maps in the new chapter gives players 15 Orbs to try and summon new heroes! You can also earn an additional five Orbs by completing the associated Lunatic quests. We also get another Log-In Bonus for the new banner, which will dole out 13 more Orbs over the next ten days. Hopefully this will be enough to give you the hero you desire!

The Branded King Summoning Focus and its associated story quests will be around for about two weeks, ending on 22 March.

    I swore I would’t spend orbs until Thracia came out, but… I spent 130 orbs. Though I have twice as much as that left so… Got exalted chrom and female morgan. both -hp +atk

  • Sisyphe

    Ah there’s the storytelling I’ve come to expect from them. I knew hoping they would maintain a degree of basic competence was too much to ask. Also, I realize it’s a narrow pass, but 6-5 was trolling a bit even for them, what with barely half the map accessible by infantry.

    • Bongo Beans

      I got Clair pulling for LA Lyn. Then I got Matilda. I have no sympathy left.

      • Sisyphe

        Yeah I pulled Mathilda looking for Soleil. I also pulled Mia, and Corrin, and Caeda. It’s been a time.

        • Bongo Beans

          Strong as a demon, yet gentle to her love…

          • Bongo Beans

            …Who is also rubbish but at least did not cost any orbs unlike her and her sister in law.

          • Sisyphe

            Honestly, my Clive is great. Refined Silver Lance and Swordbreaker means he takes basically no damage from swords and kills nearly all of them. He’s first off the bench in Arena Assault when I see an Ayra or something. I’ve got nothing for Mathilda though. Such low ATK…

  • Bongo Beans

    Spent all my orbs icluding blessed garden on fallen heroes and got bot all at 5.5%, spent this mornings orbs to try for Mogan – F and got fallen Celica. Why does this game mock me.

  • mrkisukes

    Aaaand…nothing, is it just me or did the 5* pull rates secretly become much worse after the anniversary? Every banner has been the same so far.

    Story wise I’m a bit surprised how it turned out, though this might be an indicator of something drastic happening soon that’ll result in some of these enemy characters leaving Sutr’s side.

    • Bongo Beans

      I think it’s just a way to taunt/mock with the prospect of a potential free Gunnthrá… oh we’ll see you in a couple of weeks Sis… sorry we have to go in a different direction, maybe a month or so?

      Then when you meet her… oh, sorry, nice to meet you, but I’m not free… why not spend some orbs and see if you can summon me, like you have been tryng to for months?

      I’m not bitter.

    • Shenai

      I think it’s just you, I’ve been unusually lucky. RNGesus is fickle.

    • Sisyphe

      Yeah, I’ve pulled an unreasonably large number of 5* this calendar year. 21 total on F2P orbs, but I could literally give just about all of them back. They’ve been weird ones like Corrin, Setsuna, Laslow, Gaius, Jaffar, etc. And they’ve mostly been pitybreakers (took 370 orbs for Micaiah and I haven’t gotten Morgan-F). There are literally fewer than five of that group I’d keep.

    • Kuronix

      It’s just RNG being RNG. I was unlucky with the Fallen Heroes and Legendary Banners but today I got F!Morgan as my free summon.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I got a Male Morgan (+Res -Def) and I am happy with it.
    M!Morgan has the same problem of L’Arachel… He has a tome which gives him +3 Def, but Def is his lower stat. This will not help him, unless he is Def Boon, which is not something you probably don’t want.
    Now, about what unit can be demoted to 4-stars… That’s can and cannot happen now! If none of the Fallen Heroes got demoted, this can happens again with this banner.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    We need a new “Event Schedule”! The event remaining in the old Schedule is the Zephiel’s GHB Revival.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    OK. M!Morgan is a really good unit. His tome is really cool. I would like to have a Res Smoke skill for him…

    • speedster

      At first I thought F!Morgan will get demoted, but it seems like it’ll be M!Morgan. All three are good, but M!Morgan is the weakest link

      • Diovani Estivalet

        There is also the possibility of none get demoted, like what happened with the Fallen Heroes Banner.

        • speedster

          fallen heroes are like brave heroes. farfetched were also brave heroes

  • James Richardson III

    I got two Knight Exalt Chroms!

  • Familyplayer

    Sadly most of the story stuff was what we’ve come to expect before recently, but I’m still happy that the last part of it progressed the story in a surprising way. Whether it will lead to anything is to be seen though.

  • dmurr

    Would not mind Chrom getting this look as a Warriors costume. And by that I mean I would love it.

  • Daniel Smith
