Heroes: Arrival of the Brave Summoning Focus!

The next edition of Choose Your Legends heroes have just arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Arrival of the Brave Summoning Focus for your shot at special versions of Celica, Hector, Ephraim, and Veronica.

Feh just revealed these heroes for the first time during last night’s Feh Channel. Check out our earlier article for stream highlights and a link to the heroes’ trailer. Each hero comes with a unique, preferred weapon and another new skill! They’re all powerful allies to add to your team.

Additionally, like last year’s Choose Your Legends summoning event, all Heroes players also get a free summon! Choose one of Celica, Hector, Ephraim, or Veronica as a neutral 5★ hero on a separate, special banner. Which hero will you choose?

You’ll be able to see all four heroes in action in a new Paralogue, also titled Arrival of the Brave. Complete all three chapters, and their associated quests, to earn an additional 12 Orbs! We’ll also get a further 13 Orbs over the next ten days from another Log-In Bonus.

The Arrival of the Brave summoning focus will be available for three weeks, ending on 14 September. Afterward, these heroes will be added to the regular summoning pool, so you’ll still have plenty of chances to summon them again!

    150 Orbs, 1 Original Hector. I do not even count him as Pity Breaker. Interesting is what Veronica said in Paralogue 24-3, which makes me happy~

    My -Atk streak continues with Veronica…keep it comin’ IS

  • Got the new Hector from the free summon, so I guess I’ll just go for Veronica then as my pick.

  • Kneekicker

    Veronica ended up being my free summon after I had already picked her as my freebie, so it was a pleasant surprise to get two copies of her within the span of a minute. If it weren’t for the fact that I’m saving up in FGO, I’d buy some orbs to try for the other 3 as well.

    Using her is a blast and I believe she’ll be well on her way to displacing Elise as my favourite mounted healer.

  • Mason Klaus

    I went with big man Hector, in all honesty I couldn’t at first choose who I wanted cause all of them have such good skills but favorite game won out and Hector was my choice. I do honestly hope to get the other three but knowing my luck thats not gonna happen.

  • James Richardson III

    I managed to get Veronica, Ephraim, and Celica. 3/4!

  • Morgan Rodgers

    I drew a +Spd -Atk Veronica. I’m trying to decide whether I want to claim a free Ephraim or Hector (I kind of hate Eirika & Ephraim as FE characters so will probably go Hector)

  • dmurr

    Is it just me, or are these alts a little.. underwhelming? Celica’s in particular is not great, to me.

    • Suicunesol

      You mean art-wise or power wise?

      • dmurr

        I guess all I really care about is the artwork, since I don’t get heavily invested in the gameplay. Celica, Ephraim and Hector are all some of my favorite Fire Emblem characters and, maybe because they have other alts already with good art, I’m not as excited about them.

      I confess CYL 2 didn’t excited me at the same level CYL 1 did. We have 1 year of content between both banners, so there are a lot of good units that were released during this period… including the Legendary Heroes. Last year I didn’t have a lot of really good units, so all 4 brave heroes were well accepted in any of my teams. Lyn was the first bow knight and she still is a high tier unit, Ike was my first good axe unit, Lucina was a great lance unit in my team, and Roy was part of my cavalry team for months!

      This year… the excitement is not happening… I am not saying CYL 2018’s units are bad, but I have others units to do their roles. I don’t plan to use Brave Ephraim in my teams, outside assault modes. I have others great armored axe units. I know he can double when has access to field buffs but I prefer to use my Legendary Hector, who can double during enemy phase, already has Distant Counter and can prevent foes to double thanks to his weapon. Brave Hector is great, but if I decide to use him, I will need to change my armored team to make Hector work with the others. Brave Celica is a great infantry sword unit, but being a infantry sword unit is her problem for me. Her “Double Lion” skill is great, but if Celica isn’t at full HP she basically don’t have a b-skill. She need to have a healer on her team or a healing special to have good use of this skill, different from Alm who can heal himself with the Falchion. Veronica is the only one I can see me using, and this is why she is my free unit.

    Managed to get the new hector (+Atk/-HP) on only my second orb! A nice change of pace after how many orbs I’ve poured into the Festival banner (was trying for Xander, got to 4.25%, pity broken by Mist…got to 4.5% again, no colourless orbs in my circle–got the new Elincia, and have given up on that banner for now >_<). Have to build up a small stash and keep trying for the others. Haven't decided which to take for my freebie, but I'll wait to see how the rest of my pulls go before making that decision.
