FEH Channel July 19 2018: A Breakdown

Feh returns with another episode of the Feh Channel, this time 18 minutes in length!

This episode starts with Feh greeting us from the beach, before immediately jumping into a FE Awakening announcement featuring New Heroes!

Libra, Maribelle, Sumia and a new variant of Olivia (a Flier), are all announced to be coming in the upcoming Ylissean Travelers, starting on July 20 at 12a PST. We’ll have another post detailing their skills and availability when it deploys live.

Additionally, a Grand Hero Battle featuring Walhart: The Conquerer, begins on July 29 at 12a PST. He looks fierce!

 

 

 

 

After the Awakening announcement, comes Feh’s very own Feh’s Summer Celebration, in which we celebrate our 1.5 year anniversary. This will iclude

  • Feh’s Summer Celebration Log-In Bonus
  • August 2 and August 16, will feature two orbs per day, for two weeks each (28 orbs in total)
  • Daily Reward Maps will return with a new map each day, featuring 4 of the top 40 heroes, giving us 10 maps in total, with a Normal and Hard mode for 1 orb each. These run from August 2, for 10 days
  • Tempest Trials+  brings us a revisit of Masked Marth, Clive, Tobin, Arden, Joshua and Black Knight as repeat prizes, letting your merges or skill inheritance restart. These come back starting on August 14.

  • Daily Summoning Events bring in Daily Summoning Events, and 15 returning ones at that! You’ll see returning 2017 Focus banners such as Heroes with Death Blow, and Heroes with Hone Atk. These are only available for 24 hours, starting on August 2. Of course, the first summon in each is free, but each is only available for one day, so don’t pass these free summon chances up!

After all of this news, we get details on the next Version Update, bringing us:

  • The next Grand Conquest, starting August 1
    • New Standings featuring Top Players within each army, which contributes towards a ranking system for up to 3,000 feathers per army ranking tier
    • Point modifiers for teams that have lower area control, will give them a boost in points to catch back up for control
  • Weapon Refinery finally boosting the Askr Heroes trio, Alfonse, Sharena and Anna (all at a cost of 500 Arena Medals, 400 SP and 200 Divine Dew:
    • Alfonse’s Folkvangr obtains HP+3, +Atk/Def +7 if under 80% HP, and Triangle Adept 3.
    • Sharena’s Fensalir gives her HP+3, Spd/Def Bond 3, and also neutralizes opponent hard buffs from Rallies, Fortifies, etc.
    • Anna’s Noatun gives her HP+3, lets her warp around if HP >= 50% within 2 spaces, as if she has Halloween!Nowi’s Grimoire weapon ability.
  • Arena Update comes in on August 14, gives us a new tier called Great Summoner, letting your Home screen get updated with a tracker to see how often you’ve hit Great Summoner status. This goes to exceptional performers in Tier 20, so it’ll be only for the best of the best.
    • For each enemy beaten by a Bonus hero, you’ll obtain an additional 3 points per enemy hero defeated. Strategize your KOs!

Finally, we’re introduced to the new event, Forging Bonds, which is a new event built around advancing Support mechanics to focus on the event characters, which in this events case, will focus on the new Ylissean Travelers banner.

As you complete these battles, defeating enemies with certain units results in drops of colored hearts within these mystery chests, representing connections to friendship, which let you obtain goodies like consumable prizes and wearable headgear.

There are quite a few new headgears available, and for a neat twist, if you equip the proper accessories on your heroes, your Bond points received in battle will be boosted. Occasionally, you’ll receive boosts to your Friendship acquisition points via modifiers. Of course, there’s more, but Feh won’t tell us the rest quite yet!

This feature starts on July 23, and lasts for 2 weeks. For each day, you can earn one orb for the first time you clear a stage (for 14 in total). Of course, we’ll all receive 20 free orbs to celebrate. Logging in by August 5 gives you these orbs as a prize.

    My thoughts about the FEH Channel content:
    – I am happy with this banner. They look good units. My guess for demotion are Sumia or Libra, and I want Olivia (flying dancer) and Mirabelle (staff valor), and a Axe Cavalry unit as GHB? Great!
    – A new TT+ where all the rewards are units? Great! I would prefer the unit in the pool, but…
    – Forging Bonds looks ok, I new way to get itens, I guess…

    About the Askr Trio refinements:
    – Alfonse: His refinement is pretty good! Brazen Atk/Def is great! The Triangle Adept effect is bad. I will probably give him a Atk or Spd refinement.
    – Sharena: Great refinement! Very useful! Be able to negate any foe’s field bonus is very useful, and Spd/Def Bond will help her.
    – Anna: Poor Anna. Her refinement don’t help her in a useful way. She needs some Atk and Def!

    Also… Hríd looks amazing! Great desing! I hope to get him soon!

    So the updates to the arena doesn’t really address the issues that have been plaguing it since forever. I can see what they’re trying to do but encouraging players to use more bonus units in their offense team, which it does somewhat fix on that front…but the biggest issue is on the defense team side of things as Tier 20 is plague by Armor Emblem teams and lower scores (seen by newcomers) by Horse Emblem.

    Out of the 3 Askr refinements, Sharena probably has the most solid one as it can counter Emblem teams that love their Hone/Fortify buffs and the bond skills is nice. Alfonse is next as it basically just makes him a better version of what everyone already builds him as; now you have an open slot A, it could be argued that this makes him better than Sharena due to the stronger niche utility it give him. Anna’s is sadly not very good, the warp ability could be good if she had the power, but her 29Atk just doesn’t sync well with it.

      I would say it is a problem

      I still use a very well made horse emblem for things besides arena…

      Don’t agree with tier lists, Xander is not a B tier… He is easily A+ to S-

      • speedster

        I think it’s just because of the stiff competition he faces with so many sword units

        • Daniel Smith

          probably

  • Broba Fett

    Libra Bolt Axe when!? What is this Wo Dao mimic?

    • Mason Klaus

      I believe its a nod to the fact that when he’s recruited (and actually before that now that I think about it), he’s wielding a Killer Axe.

      • Broba Fett

        I was thinking the same thing, just wish they stuck with the axe in literally ALL of his art. I have the same gripe about Azura and her not having the holy lance. A wo dao axe would have worked much better as a weapon refreshment for another unit like Gunter or Arthur or maybe even as a weapon for Vaike (Still cant believe he isnt in the game yet like wtf is going on). Oh well, maybe they’ll inevitably buff him with the bolt axe in a few months when it becomes obvious that his starting skills and stat spread suck.

  • this game is trying real fucking hard to make me stop playing it

  • Kurono

    Walhart is finally in the game! Great! As a GHB, so he will probably suck.

    Another Aweakening banner, with yet again, a female and male ratio of 3:1 and with another alt in it… And i just wonder who’s gonna be demoted to 4*, hint, he is male even if he looks like a girl. Im happy with Maribelle though.

    The only good refinement is for Sharena. IS seriously think that Triangle Adept Weapons is good? Poor Anna, why can’t you have good things?

    Loot boxes! Yay! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0c8093705143e54130cb5ce3765038185040324752d8af4540d6283bcd630463.jpg

    Awakening… What a lame birthday present, but at least they’re all new except Olivia, so no really complaining (Binding Blade deserved it better, though).
    And now, how is it that these characters got those arts while Eliwood and Lloyd look stoned?

    • 100%B-Type

      Happy Birthday!

    • Broba Fett

      Lets just be happy that they stopped putting out derp art after Athena and have at least been trying lol. Fingers crossed for updated art soon though. RIP Ogma, Jagen, Raven (his actually isnt that bad but could be way better), Zelgius, Hector, Lonqu and everything Yamada Akihiro and AKIRA touched. Oh and Happy Birthday!

    • 3-13 Archer

      Why thank you.
      I actually like Zelgius’. His face colour seems off, but is something I can deal with, being the rest perfect.

  • Daniel Smith

    Walhart: The Conquerer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    grima, xander, and walhart…

    Thanks IS, I no longer need you to add heroes, but you can

  • Bongo Beans

    So if I don’t summon focus characters I can’t access forging bonds rewards? That sucks.

  • dmurr

    Anyone else disappointed with this Feh Channel?
