Heroes: Eirika: Graceful Resolve Trailer, Water Blessing Quests, & FE6/FE10 Heroes Announcement

The twin princess of Renais finally becomes a Legendary Hero in Fire Emblem Heroes! Check out the trailer for Eirika: Graceful Resolve here:

Legendary Eirika is somewhat similar to the Legendary version of her brother. Her promotion item, the Lunar Brace, is now a unique B skill. She also gets a special version of her own personal weapon, the Storm Sieglinde. Both this weapon and her A skill, Atk/Spd Solo, give Eirika benefits for charging into enemy territory and fighting alone. You can also see a full text breakdown of her skills below.

Like all legendary heroes, Eirika: Graceful Resolve will be arriving in a special banner with a 8% 5★ rate. The other 11 heroes appearing in this banner are: Flying Olivia, Summer Tana, Legendary Ephraim, Sumia, Bride Ninian, Legendary Lyn, M!Grima, Bride Sanaki, Legendary F!Grima, Innes, and Genny. The banner starts tomorrow!

If you need more Orbs to summon all of these characters, Heroes has you covered. New Water Blessing Quests begin today! You can earn five Orbs along with some Hero Feathers and other items by completing tasks with Water Blessed units. These quests will last for 14 days, ending on 13 November.

Additionally, Heroes has acknowledged the feedback they’ve been receiving about some games. Specifically, many players have noted the lack of new characters from Binding Blade and Radiant Dawn. FE6 in particular hasn’t seen a new summonable character since Klein appeared in the Sibling Bonds focus that started back in February of 2017!

Sadly, summoners are going to have to keep waiting quite some time for these heroes. The game announced that new Radiant Dawn heroes will be coming in January 2019, while Binding Blade heroes will be arriving in March 2019. In the meantime, any RD or BB characters we see will be seasonal alts of existing characters at best.

As pointed out in the announcement, this is because it does take a fairly long amount of time to add new heroes. Characters have to be designed, programmed, drawn, and then voiced in both English and Japanese before they can be released. The heroes coming out in the next few months were likely begun quite some time ago.

However, this is at least a good reminder that Heroes does listen and respond to feedback. If there are things you don’t like about the game or that you would like to be added, reach out to them! You can submit feedback in-game, or e-mail the Heroes support team directly via [email protected].

Eirika: Graceful Resolve:
  • Storm Sieglinde (Sword, Mt 16): Grants Atk+3. If the number of foes within 2 spaces (excluding target) ≥ the number of allies within 2 spaces (excluding unit), grants Def/Res+3 and Special cooldown charge +1 per unit’s attack during combat. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.)
  • Moonbow (Special): Treats foe’s Def/Res as if reduced by 30% during combat.
  • Atk/Spd Solo 3 (A slot): If unit is not adjacent to an ally, grants Atk/Spd+6 during combat.
  • Lunar Brace (B slot): Slows Special trigger (cooldown count+1). Deals damage = 50% of foe’s Def when Special triggers.
  • Odd Def Wave 3 (C slot): At start of odd-numbered turns, grants Def+6 to unit and adjacent allies for 1 turn. (Bonus granted to unit even if no allies are adjacent.)

    Well this banner is really good imo,. Gonna be gunning for all but Sumia as I don’t really care for her. Ephraim to hopefully +10, Innes cause I don’t have him, Genny for the same reason, same with B!Sanaki, L!Lyn, F!Grima, S!Tana and Fly!Olivia, M!Grima for not only +10ing but also to get better ivs cause the one I have right now is -ATK.

    I for one am glad they finally acknowledged the requests everyone’s been making for more RD and Binding Blade characters and can think of at least three that should be in already, Edward and Nolan from RD cause they’re pretty popular to use (even though Mia quite honestly blows Ed out of the water and I myself prefer Boyd over Nolan) and Lugh from Binding Blade since both his mother and brother are already in (as well as one of his potential fathers) though I can’t really think of anyone else for Binding Blade except maybe its “Christmas Cavaliers” Lance and Allen.

    • Lucas Moraes

      I was thinking more along the lines of Yoder with Aureola, Niime with Apocalypse, Perceval and Melady.

      • Mason Klaus

        Yeah those four can work too, may as well stick Hugh in there to complete Canas’s family (since he’s already in the game may as well add his mother and son).

        I mean in a way when you think about it, a lot of characters that get married and have kids are already in the game, Nino with one of her two potential husbands as well as one of her twin sons, Bartre, Karel, Karla and Fir, Eliwood with two of his potential wives in Ninian and Lyn and Roy, Hector with two of his potential wives in again Lyn and Florina and Lillina. And the list could go on

          We also have any of the 3 thieves, 3 nomads, 2 wyverns, the other 2 pegs, 3 mercs/heroes, any of the millions of cavaliers. FE6 also has some good Camus-archetypes like Murdock, Brunya, or Gale. FE6 still doesn’t have half of their characters yet…there’s plenty to anticipate.

          • Mason Klaus

            Hmm, yeah thats true. Guess we won’t know till March of next year. Same with RD in January, I’m honestly 50% certain at least Edward and Nolan will be in and I know lots of people want Jill and Haar in so thats two more potentials to rep the new RD banner. Who knows, maybe we’ll finally get some Laguz characters from the beast tribe and bird tribes (we technically have Laguz type characters for dragons and honestly we don’t need anymore dragons). Personally I’m hoping for Ranulf cause I like him, especially in PoR since he was teasing Ike and Elincia on the chapter he joins.

    Well, at least I know when to spend my orbs, but it’s ridiculous the amount of characters from some games. And I thought they were planning a Binding Blade remake, so they should start promoting it.

    • mrkisukes

      We still have Three Houses to come out in spring so it’ll be a good while until we actually get a Binding Blade remake; most likely 2020…so they don’t need to worry about promoting it anytime soon. As far as reps go, I personally want Lugh added so I can have the whole family together.

    • 100%B-Type

      What if they want to make a Binding Blade remake combined with all the Units from the manga Hasha no Tsurugi?
      That would be perfect~

  • 100%B-Type

    Would be fun if instead of M!Grima Amelia took his place for more Sacred Stones summons~
    Radiant Dawn banner appears like this years one with Micaiah in January, does this safe say I have at least every year a Tellius banner?! Nice~

  • Daniel Smith

    Most people… Erika! I must get her! oOOOo and those heroes look good as well

    Me… M! Grima! I must finish my +10! Forget those other punks

  • Reuska

    So they acknowledged people’s feedback about heroes from the two games missing and banners are coming. That still means they weren’t planing them by themselves for sooner. Which is kind of sad. And II haven’t played neither of them yet, I just appreciate diversity in FEH.

    Which brings me to the point that second red Eirika in one year when the red pool is so stuffed with important characters that have to yet get their first alt… waste of red legendary spot imo.

    • Zog58

      While your points certainly have merit, I would still like to offer the glass half-full perspective. IS is listening to the fans. For a few months it seemed like they only listening to QoL matters, but they are expanding their range to account for more criticism. I am sure that 3.0 will likely fix many problems that people have.

      Banners take a good 6 months get ready, or so we can project that at least RD was already in production. I do agree on Binding Blade, though.

    • Vaximillian

      Yeah, it takes how long to produce banners? Four to six months or like that? They only remembered that FE6 and Tellius were missing like a couple of months ago. Awesome.

    • MetalGear Lamia

      No what I wanted!
