Heroes: Enter Legendary Hero Hríd: Icy Blade

Hríd: Icy Blade is upon us, in his self-named Legendary Hero banner, coming to us very soon.

 

Hríd: Icy Blade is a Wind-Blessed Legendary Hero (with a Defense boost), and comes prepackaged with a pretty beefy set of skills all on his own. Of course, he brings along some powerful friends in his banner, including:

 

  • Red
    • Laevateinn
    • Ryoma [Legendary]
  • Blue
    • Cordelia [Summer]
    • Hector [Brave]
    • Lucina [Legendary]
  • Green
    • Kana (F)
    • Innes [Summer]
    • Gunnthra
  • Colorless
    • Robin (F) [Legendary]
    • Noire
    • Nina

Hríd’s battle style appears to focus around capitalizing on debuffing, by both debuffing foes on his own, and earning a Sweep/Breaker bonus to himself when battling debuffed foes. Hríd his friends come at an 8% summon chance, during the Legendary Hero (Hríd: Icy Blade) banner, which runs from November 27 @ 11p PT until December 4 at 10:59p PT. Good luck!

    I’ve been saving for months for Lucina, 500 orbs stocked and ready to go. And dang, that Blue pool is good! Glad to see the new Brave Heroes are making an entrance after all!

    HOW UNEXPECTED.
    Please, stop spaming Grima in every banner. I know she’s the only colorless legendary, but I need some variety (and wrathful/dazzling staff). I have a +2 merged and I don’t even like her.

      Meanwhile, I’ve been trying for her and still haven’t gotten her. But I do agree that variety would be better.

    Meh, aside from B!Hector, Gunnthra, Hrid and F!Grima this banner is a pass as I could honestly care less about the others.
