Heroes: New “Adrift” Banner

A nice surprise came today for Summoners, informing us of the new upcoming Harvest season banner, and its four new Heroes. This banner does give us our fourth Camilla alt, but it also gives us an entirely new character, Mikoto, from Fire Emblem Fates.

Part of this banner includes the introduction of a few new skills, one of which appears to negate meta-defining skills like Quick Riposte and Bold Fighter entirely. Other skills look pretty neat, so place value where you feel it belongs, as always.

Adrift comes with a Paralogue chapter series, and kicks off the morning after the next Feh Channel update, on November 8 at 11p PT. It also brings news of the next upcoming Tempest Trials+ reward unit, Azura: Young Songstress. Could this be the game’s second free Dancer? I’d be excited for that!

    yikes

  • mrkisukes

    I’m all for more Fates units, but did it have to be 3 alts to 1 new? Camilla’s my favorite FE waifu, but now she has the same number of alts as Lyn, and it saddens me to see all the hate.

    • Kusanagi

      Well it wouldn’t be the Fire Emblem community if they’re not making you feel ashamed about the things you like now wouldn’t it?

      • mrkisukes

        sigh…tis the cross we must bare.

      • MetalGear Lamia

        It shouldn’t really be this way…..not like it obviously will affect my any I’m sure alot of others enjoyment of this.

    • Sentinel

      I don’t hate Camilla, but I just wish they would stop forcing her into themes she doesn’t fit in.

      First there was the Hoshidan-themed New Years banner, and now there’s this Valla-themed banner. Perfect time for a more fitting unit, yet they squeeze in Camilla anyway.

      • superdawge

        Camilla is very culturally enriched

      • Semi Colon Parenthesis

        Ehh the New Years Banner was basically a “Japanese festival banner”, so not really. However, I agree here she has no reason to exist.

    • 100%B-Type

      Every signal that comes from people (are they positiv or negativ) and they talk about and it spreads further, the more attention it gets, which is why there are so many alts I think. It´s a sign that people care and the other side will respond accordingly. One way to keep it down is just not give attention to it. But people will find this out themself~

      • Semi Colon Parenthesis

        I’m having a hard time understanding what you’re saying, especially the first sentence but anyways; Cynically speaking, of course showing hype incentives them to make more alts of popular or “attractive” characters. Also, you’d think because of the back lash they’d also consider not doing it. That last sentence is also kinda pretentious and somewhat hypocritical since you’re feeding into said “hate and hype” train.

        • 100%B-Type

          I see what you mean. In short I wanted to say if you talk/write alot about a character, they will come back or so.

    • Waifu Deleter

      I’m gonna delete Camilla

      • mrkisukes

        oof

  • 100%B-Type

    I like how they look similar as Azura~ This is truly the year for Flying heroes, because they appear always as last in banner introduction like a cherry topping!
    Examples like Laegjarn, YT!Olivia, Summer Camilla & Tana, SF!Nino, WF!Hinoka, Spring Kagero, (NY!Camilla because New Year).

  • Vaximillian

    Five alts out of five units in the batch.
    These madpeople did it.

    Sigh.

  • speedster

    So I’m guessing that FE6 and FE10 banner announcement was damage control

    • 3-13 Archer

      Yep, I was already expecting this (Awakening, actually). And it still managed to disappoint me. I mean, 3 alts?

      • Vaximillian

        Mikoto is an alt to her non-existent actual self, too. And then there is an alt for Azura as the tempest reward.

        5/5 alts.

  • haha fuck off

    I was never going to pull in a 3DS banner either way, but this seriously sucks for those hoping for unrepresented characters

  • An Tran

    There are so many characters they could add, but they keep exhibiting signs of running out of ideas. Sigh

    • superdawge

      You’re missing the point if you think they do alts for any reason aside from tried and true cash grabbing

      • ronin4life

        If it were a cash grab then at least they would have gone for popular characters *people actually want*

        • superdawge

          but does anyone else have the sheer… PRESENCE camilla has?

  • Kemo Allen

    They easily could have replaced Camilla with even the likes of Elise since she has supports with Azura and has access to the Malig Knight class. My hopes of Mikoto with a dragon slaying bow are even more distant now, unfortunate.

  • James Richardson III

    SECOND free dancer?! Who was the first?

    • esco Tanner

      Olivia from hero battle

  • Bongo Beans

    I’d be very excited if Azura was cavalry…
