Heroes: Rulers of the Laguz Banner & Forging Bonds + New Event Calendar!

Our first four Beast units have just arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend your Orbs on the Rulers of the Laguz Banner for your shot at Tibarn, Reyson, Leanne, or Nailah. If you’d like to see more details, you can also check out our earlier article for their preview trailer and a text breakdown of their skills and abilities.

This banner also comes with two opportunities to see these heroes in action right away: a new main story chapter and a special event! Book III, Chapter 3: Countdown gives us our very first glimpse of the new heroes. Complete all five chapters and their associated quests to earn up to 20 Orbs!

Our four Laguz also take centre stage in the latest Forging Bonds: Hearts as One. Sharena takes the time to show everyone around the castle and the Order of Heroes.

As usual for Forging Bonds, compete in battles with accessories to gain the Friendship of our four newest allies. You’ll unlock special conversations with them, and also earn some rewards along the way!

The rewards structure has changed slightly from previous events. You now get a First Summon Ticket at 400 Friendship (instead of Hero Feathers), and also 10 Heroic Grails at 3500 (instead of one Orb). Other rewards appear to be the same.

The Rulers of the Laguz Banner will be around for about three weeks, ending on 30 January. Forging Bonds: Hearts as One will last its usual length of two weeks, ending on 25 January.

If you’re wondering what else will be going on over the next month, you’re in luck. A new January/February Event Calendar is now available!

The calendar contains two new Special Heroes banners and also our first Mythic Heroes Summoning Event. The 2nd Anniversary Celebration for Heroes will also begin in early February! Click on the Read More for a text breakdown with date correction.

    After getting screwed with a 11.50% rate on the legendary banner, the game felt pity for me and gave me 2 Nailahs in my first circle…granted both for some reason wanted to be +Hp/-Def, but I’ll take the pity.

    • It’s especially cute since in the Japanese version, she speaks exclusively in hiragana when not referring to specific characters haha

  • Sisyphe

    Astonishing good 5* rate, but: Elincia, Leif, 2x Owain, Ephraim, Ishtar, Swordhart, 2x Leanne, pulling red and blue. 530 orbs to start. 162 remain. I’m a bit sad, if I’m honest

    • JC

      Much smaller stash for me, but similar outcome. With about 140 orbs, I did get a Nailah on my second summoning circle and then 4 more 5-stars pulling red…but all pity breakers. Luke, Lyn, Laegjarn, and Lene. Down to about 25 orbs now. Gonna save up so I can combine with summon tickets and try for Tibarn a bit more.

  • 3-13 Archer

    Uggghhh… With all the hype I forgot that summoning is as cancerous as it can be. I only got another Zelgius at 4.25%. When will they demote some more characters? The 5* pool is overcrowded and they didn’t even demoted anyone from the Adrift banner.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Right after defeating Hel, she cursed Alfonse. He will die in 9 days, but only in the story, not in real life. I bet that in the next chapter, King Gustav will slap him for disobeying his orders, in which he warned him not to fight Hel.

  • Slixer

    600 orbs, Literally 1 5* Tailtiu… why did I even bother.

  • Eral Coil

    Glad to see I’m not the only one getting garbage after spending so much. I guess I’m not getting anyone except the Raven King…
