Heroes: Tellius Heroes Star in Greil’s Devoted

The teaser probably took most of us by surprise, with that Tyrfing-looking sword in the silhouette, but what shook me was not just the twist of what it actually was, but who the rest of the gang turned out to be.

Enter the next Special Heroes banner, Greil’s Devoted. Ike’s father, Greil, appears to take the stage, along with Ike himself, Mist, and Soren, in this new banner, and there are a few twists in not only the units that we’re receiving, but their skills and movement types. We are receiving a handful of awaited skills, and also, Fury 4. This is sure to shake up the metagame some more. Even if the unit stat spreads are not appealing (and it’s hard to imagine that they won’t be), the weapons looks pretty good on paper, sporting a universal +3 to all stats bond ability, that is sure to pair nicely with Sacred Seals and other bond skills owned by your squad.

Not only that, but Titania: Warm Knight (a Red Tome Cavalry), will be joining the fray, as a Tempest Trials+ reward unit. Her tome doesn’t look like a X-Blooms variant, so I wonder if it follows the Spectrum-Bond theme of the other four unit’s weaponry.

Greil’s Devoted kicks off on February 8 at 11p PT (my birthday, coincidentially), and wraps up on March 8, so Summoners, there’s plenty of time to give this your all, should you desire one of the quartet!

    Aside from the return of the loosely-clothed armoured unit, everyone else is on point. I’ve been anticipating Greil for a long time, but I never thought he’d be introduced as a seasonal before his regular variant. A Soren alt was even more unexpected.

  • Zog58

    Overjoyed at the 2019 Tellius love, even if I’m broke on orbs right now. Will summon before this banner expires, but well done on this one IS.

  • PhychoMeows

    Words cannot express how excited I am for this. SOREN HAS AN ALT!!!

  • 3-13 Archer

    And I’m here with 20 orbs. I’m dying inside, there’s no way I’m getting anyone.

    • Zog58

      RIP, same here.

      Though shouldn’t you despise these Crimean scum, Sir Archer? XD

      • 3-13 Archer

        As long as they’re not subhumans I don’t have any problem. Besides,one of them is a former Daein general and the other is the rightful heir of Daein.

    I hope Greil doesn´t meet the same fate like Charlotte & Noir! I wish he will come in his original form with Elena!
    For me, Miwabe Sakura always draws the cutest units~

  • Mason Klaus

    YES! Finally another full non-Fates banner. I think I know the two that are gonna be gunned for the most. To be honest this was a bit of a missed opportunity to add Ike and Mist’s mother into the game, I mean yeah at most she’s only mentioned by name and we only ever see her twice in PoR but still (once in that little cutscene of Ike’s memory at the beginning and then another screenshot of her getting stabbed by Greil when Volk was explaining things to Ike). Also to those whom aren’t likely happy Ike got another alt, best to grin and bare it cause he doesn’t have as many as Camilla.

    • You may want to use a spoiler tag for that.

      • Mason Klaus

        You mean for the part about Ike and Mist’s mother? Sure I can do that, even though the game’s been out for years and almost everyone should possibly know about that little tidbit.

        • Definitely, but to me a spoiler is a spoiler regardless of age. This article also has nothing to do with Elena herself, so it’s kinda hard for someone wishing to avoid such a spoiler to do so based on the title.

          But it’s cool that you complied anyway.

          • Mason Klaus

            True.

            No problem, don’t wanna suddenly get banned for something like that.

  • mrkisukes

    It’s about time we got a dedicated Telius seasonal banner. Even if I’m not interested in this banner, I’m glad others are and I finally have some down time to save my orbs.

  • jimbobvii

    Cool, another banner composed almost entirely of alts. Just what everyone was clamoring for. And the last alt-filled limited banner isn’t even half over yet.

    They could’ve used the Legendary/Mythic Heroes system to actually offer up something living up to the name and given us Gawain with Urvan or one of the legendary swords. Instead we get a half-assed Greil with a generic axe and a contradictory skill set.

    • Exirion

      I don’t see why you’re complaining… Everyone knew we were getting alts for this banner, since it’s the seasonal Valentine’s Day banner. If this was just a random alts banner like the last one, then I’d understand, but that isn’t the case here…
