Heroes: Ylissean Travelers Banner Now Live!

Four new heroes have just arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend some orbs on the Ylissean Travelers Banner for your chance at summoning Flier Olivia, Sumia, Libra, or Maribelle.

Feh just recently revealed these four heroes during the recent Summer Feh Channel. In addition to their new weapons, each of them also comes with a new skill, too! Check out the YouTube trailer below for more details. You can also scroll on down below for a text breakdown of their skills.

Releasing alongside the banner is also a new story chapter: Prince of Ice. The new chapter introduces Prince Hríd, Fjorm’s brother. Until now, we’ve only seen him mentioned in conversation. Complete all five chapters and the associated quests to earn up to 20 Orbs! We also get a new Log-In Bonus for a further 13 Orbs.

The Ylissean Travelers Banner will be available for about three weeks, ending on 10 August. Good luck adding some new units onto your team!

    Is this the banner that will be used for the Tempest or can I save my orbs?
    PD: Clearly, it is Libra who will be downgraded to 4*.

    • Broba Fett

      Why clearly Libra?

      • mrkisukes

        Cause the waifus never get demoted.

        • 100%B-Type

          all the Blue Mages I want as 4* (Micaiah, Delthea, Lute, Oliver)

      • 3-13 Archer

        Because Sumia has Close Defense and that lance, Maribelle has Dazzling Staff, and just look at Olivia!
        I might be wrong, but they try very hard to keep the good skills at 5*.

  • Bongo Beans

    All my orbs for Olivia, but she shuns me! It’s performing arts all over again!

  • Diovani Estivalet

    It’s safe to stay Hríd will be the August Legendary Hero. Yay! He has a sword!

  • Zog58

    With Hrid being a sword user, I wonder….. who will the next LH be? We know it’s Blue. A lance wielding Eliwood, Sigurd, Seliph, or Xander? Maybe Light Priestess Micaiah? Or an original character? Hard to tell.

  • Kurono
    • Diovani Estivalet

      Alolan Alfonse

    • Kneekicker

      I’ve been looking for a while now, but I still can’t draw any lines between the two of them. The closest thing I could come up with is that the two share identical poses that are flipped.

  • dmurr

    Hríd looks really good actually. Also surprised and kinda sad that we got another Awakening banner, but still don’t have Owain. We finally get Sumia though!

    • Evan Pierce

      I’d guess Owain, despite his popularity on both the homefront (IE, Japan) and amongst the Western fanbase, is probably lower on the list of IS’ priorities since he’s technically already in the game as Odin…the two might be radically different classes, but they are the same character, so that’s my thought as to why we might not have gotten Owain yet. And probably the same reason for why Severa hasn’t shown up yet either.

      • dmurr

        That makes sense, given that when they did the Warriors Awakening DLC maps, they represented Owain with Odin as if it was the exact same character (I suppose it technically is, but yeah).

  • 100%B-Type

    IF Azura gets a new Weapon refine for her lance maybe she could get the same effect as Skuld & Urdr with +3 on all stats.

    • Anne O’Namus

      Since Skuld is a sword and Urdr is an axe Verthandi would probably be a lance
