Heroes: Legendary Lyn: Lady of the Wind + Golden Week Celebration!

Heroes has revealed the next legendary hero a few days early: Lyn: Lady of the Wind! Drawn by Sachiko Wada, Lyn is an infantry archer wielding our first coloured bow. Check out her preview trailer below! You can also find a full text breakdown of her skills at the bottom.

11 other heroes will also be available during Lyn’s debut banner, including some seasonals: Legendary Ike, Mage Eirika, Fallen Celica, Legendary Ephraim, PA!Shigure, Micaiah, PA!Inigo, Halloween Henry, Genny, Halloween Jakob, and Legendary Robin.

Like all other Legendary banners, the base 5★ summoning rate is a whopping 8% and no off-focus 5★s will be available. Lyn: Lady of the Wind and her banner will go live on Tuesday, 1st May.

Additionally, Golden Week Celebrations begin today! Celebrate one of Japan’s biggest holiday periods with a number of events and plenty of Orbs. Many of these events start today, including the following:

  • Golden Week Log-In Bonuses: There will be two separate bonuses, each offering 13 orbs, one from 27 April through 11 May, and one from 1 May through 15 May.
  • Golden Week Reward Maps: Heroes players will get a Special Map every day for the next 11 days! Each map has two difficulties and rewards an Orb for each.
  • Golden Week Quests: You’ll also have more Orbs to earn with special quests! Note, when you’ve completed an earlier set of quests, the quest will update to a new version.
  • Double EXP & SP Event: While you’re playing all this new content, you’ll also be able to train your heroes extra efficiently! Double EXP & SP ends on 8 May.

Furthermore, a special Golden Week edition of Grand Conquests will begin on Wednesday, 2 May! This event will bring additional special Golden Week quests as well, which will allow players to recruit Kaze: Easygoing Ninja! We’ll be able to snag him at both 3★ and 4★. He first appeared in the most recent story update.

There will also be some further changes and additions to Grand Conquests, including ways to earn more Conquest Lances, tweaks to rewards based on conquered areas, and a raise of the rank cap to 25. This special Grand Conquests event will last a week, ending on 8 May.

  • *sighs* Thank you FE Heroes, you officially made me feel one of my favorite FE 7 lords as “overrated”. Good god she did NOT need another alt. This could have gone to anyone else but her. Of course morons go “Thighs sell, IS wants to make money off of her.” Well……its not like Lyn isn’t the only female character with assets. Literally anyone else could have gotten it. What makes this worse….Brave Lyn will most likely get Swift Mulagir as an upgrade….tbh Swift is better than the normal Mulagir most of the time. Since the whole “Negate Bonus” effects are not really used much now as they’re getting steadily replaced by ploys, chill, and smoke skills.

    • speedster

      Ooo. Boy. Swift Mulagir on brave Lyn will be cancerous

    • Diovani Estivalet

      I don’t know if Swift Mulagir will be available to Brave Lyn in the Weapon Refinery because Mulagir is a colorless bow and Swift Mulagir is a
      green bow. It would change Brave Lyn color. I will not complain if it happens, but…

      • speedster

        Color doesn’t matter for shared weapons. The unit’s color stays the same despite their weapon. Bow are like dragons now

        • Diovani Estivalet

          Oh, in this case… it’s ok. So yes, Brave Lyn will use the Swift Mulagir pretty well. Although, she will trade the +3 Spd for the +3 Res,

          • If it’s less solo runs and lihn activates it’s unit requirements, it’ll be better because of the spd/atk boost. So I guess it should say it’s better than mulagir if people don’t plan on having Lyn just to go out there and solo maps. It still bust3d though because you honestly could get a bunch of dancers to be around her.

    • MetalGear Lamia

      That title still belongs to Ike…

  • speedster

    #morethan4

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I confess I would prefer a different hero, but I am ok with Lyn (again). Now the Lyn Emblem will be completed. She looks to be a great unit, although I can see Vantage being more useful with Laws of Sacae than Desperation. Refined Marth is the perfect support for Legendary Lyn, because he can give her more +4 Atk/Spd/Def/Res, making Lyn having +8 in all stats in enemy’s phase, and more +5 Atl/Spd because of her weapon. I am sure I will make L’Lyn and Marth have support.
    The problem, for me, is… I already have the others 2 green units in the banner. I hope Lady Luck helps me in this banner, like how she helped me with Kinshi Hinoka (I got her in my 3nd summoning orbs, being the 1st the free one). I will also target the Colorless pool, because I don’t have H’Jakob and L’Robin, and having more Gennys is always good. Red is my 3rd priority, because I don’t have Mage Eirika and Fallen Celica, and I can skip blue because I already have L’Ephraim and I got Micaiah as a pity breaker some time ago (although I would like some Sturdy Stance 2 and Distant Def 3). I was hoping to get F!Morgan in this Legendary Banner, because I want the Serpent Tome for my LA!Lyn.
    Also, with Spd Tactic, Eirika will be fully boosted! I need to get her with good IVs.
    I am so happy Kaze is a free unit, although he losed his IVs because of this update. I don’t like Grand Conquest, but I will play it for him (or at least until I reach Tier 25 to get all the rewards).

    • Lyn Emblem was already complete, though – this is the fifth Lyn, after Lyn, Bridal Lyn, Brave Lyn, and Valentine’s Lyn.

      • Diovani Estivalet

        But know we can make a Lyn Emblem with different colors: Sword Lyn, Blue Mage Lyn, Green Bow Lyn and Staff or Colorless Bow Lyn.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Legendary Lyn destroyed the idea of “the legendary heroes is related to the previous/current chapter/banner”. I was expecting Takumi or Sakura, but nope!

    • MetalGear Lamia

      That’s definitely later on especially Camilla

      • mrkisukes

        I’d love to see a Legendary Camilla, though as much as I love her, it’s more fitting for Xander, Ryoma and Corrin to get their legendary alts before her…then again, Lyn isn’t even that important to the story of FE7 and she got her’s before Eliwood and Hector, so who knows at this point.

        • speedster

          Lyn’s just there for the tutorial, which is dreadful to say the least

        • Diovani Estivalet

          I believe the Legendary Heroes are Original Characters, Main characters for their games or characters related to the main characters. OC are Fjorm anr Gunnthrá, Ephraim and Ike are main characters, Robin and Lyn are related to main characters. Robin is only important in the final part of Awakening, making Chrom and Lucina the real main characters. He/she is not important during the Gangrel’s Arc, as Lyn is only important during the tutorial (Lyn’s Story).

  • mrkisukes

    FEH Community: Hey IS, can we have a Legendary Marth please? He is the main FE lord after all.
    IS: No, but you can have another Lyn.
    FEH Community: But this is the 5th god damn one, and less than 3 months after the last one.
    IS: Oh don’t worry, we got half a dozen more planned for the rest of 2018.

    • speedster

      Actually, considering the frequency of Lyn alts, we’ll have 8 or more Lyn’s next year

      • Diovani Estivalet

        Of course this will happens! We need Lyn Emblem (or Robin Emblem) for Rival Domains and Grand Conquest.

    • gabriel

      Retard

  • dmurr

    Hold up. I would complain about Legendary Lyn, but I don’t really care. We can recruit Kaze through quests?? I’m really happy with that.. though I’m not really a fan of Grand Conquests. I’m intrigued.. will he be added to summoning banners after?

  • Daniel Smith

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ANOTHER WORTHLESS RESKINNED CHARACTER!!!!!!!!

    WE NEED A LOT MORE OF THIS IS!

    lol no start using new characters pls

    • gabriel

      Get raped retard, get a fucking brain.

  • Zog58

    Very excited for a free Kaze. I have… mixed feelings about another Lyn, really do wish that someone like Eliwood or Alm got it instead. Ah well, the dislike ratio on the trailer makes it more than clear that people are displeased. IS will likely somewhat learn.

    Also, I bet the countering skills banner will now be a recurring thing, with Hector and Takumi as staples while they rotate a DC weapon user (bet Ryoma is next, then Hardin etc.) So I’m saving my orbs for that and whatever comes next month.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Another Bow Lyn?! Goddammit, Intelligent Systems, this is the most reta-wait…! …Okay, Legendary Lyn’s finishing blow is freaking cool. But in any case, not looking forward to this, I refuse to get trolled with those worthless 3-Star Heroes, 8% for these focused 5-Star Heroes is a lie, and the Heroes that I already have are pity breakers, not to mention the fact that they killed off Gunnthrá so she won’t be available, so…SKIPPED!

    But, I’m glad that they’re giving us free Orbs for this Golden Week!

  • 100%B-Type

    Lyn is such a green unit. But why not make Kaze a green dagger unit?

    • O.H. X-1990

      Because there is no green dagger, or blue dagger, or red dagger. The colored daggers are not on the list of weapon types.

      • 100%B-Type

        Not yet so I can have later Blue Dagger Flora~
        Or some special Banner with Ninja-Elise as Red-Dagger because reference to her Flowers

        • O.H. X-1990

          I don’t think Flora or Elise are “Legendary” enough. Legendary Heroes only focuses on the main characters of the Fire Emblem series, such as Ike and Ephraim, and main villains such as Female Grima, not minor characters like Flora or Elise. Oh, wait, Elise is a supporting character, but she’s still not “Legendary” enough.

          • 100%B-Type

            I only mentioned “Special Banner” (similar like NewYears or Bride) and I think it would be boring if those new Weapon-types only appear on Legendary Banners. We dont even have colorless Melee units, which could be Beast units like Laguz or Taguel. Its just some speculation for fun~

  • Laggalot101

    Even I am now feeling the alt-fatigue. …I guess I’m sending another feedback form IS’s way…

    Another Grand Conquest, though, so soon after the last one. And they’ve already made changes. That’s pretty snappy. Though with it being so snappy, I’m not expecting the mode to suddenly have all issues fixed now. But it should at least be better than before. Looking forward to seeing the improvements in the execution.

    • gabriel

      Get raped

      • Laggalot101

        Apparently civil discussion has become a foreign concept, so now we have to resort ot petty, angsty insults and attacks. How sad…

  • Sara Jaye

    Goddammit, now that’s another unit on my Want list who I may never get. Oh well, at least you can get Kaze without spending money or wasting orbs.

  • Shenai

    Another Lyn, yay >_>
    I’ll probably skip this banner as I have 2 of most colors, and one for red.

  • mrkisukes

    I feel it should be mentioned that while the English reveal trailer is only about 3 to 1 in the like to dislike ratio, the Japanese version is much worse, it’s basically 1 to 1. I think IS is going to take this reception to heart and do better about being so repetitive with character alts.

    • speedster

      Yea. I also checked the like/dislike ratio just because someone on reddit pointed it out. Not even the Hinoka banner got this much spite

      • mrkisukes

        I think the reason is that Japan doesn’t have the same connection to Lyn like the West does since FE7 wasn’t their first game (obvs). So many in the West are fine with Lyn getting another alt cause she’s their first waifu while Japan is just like, “another one? Come one, there are better babes out there.”

    • gabriel

      Why? Because some retards whine about alts and want obscure characters that no one gives a shit about? Lmao.
