Heroes: New Binding Blade Heroes, after 2 years!

That’s right – after two years of waiting, we’re finally seeing more Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade units join the Fire Emblem Heroes roster! The banner, “Beyond Darkness” has arrived and can now be summoned from.

The new Heroes are: Idunn: Dark Priestess, Lugh: Anima Child, Sue: Doe of the Plains, and Thea: Stormy Flier. Some of you who have played translation patches of Fire Emblem 6 may know Thea as Thite or Tate – the middle sister of the pagasus sisters. Check out of earlier article for more details about the new heroes.

The banner arrives today, and will come to a close on the 10th of April, 6:59am UTC.

Coupled with the month-long banner is a Forging Bonds event featuring these four new Heroes.

Equip the previous Forging Bonds’ EX accessories on your four fighters to grab 100% bonus points, and begin killing stuff for rewards. Up for grabs are 2 Orbs a day (14 max), new accessories, 16.4k Feathers, 20 Divine Dew, some Badges, and 40 Heroic Grails.

The event begins today, and will end on the 22nd of March, 6:59am UTC.

I guess I should put something here.
  • So I dipped. 570+ orbs gave me: 2 Lugh, 2 Tate, Sue, Idoun, Elincia, Laevatein, Flora, and Zelgius.

    I think I fucked up going green in hindsight, I really wanted Sue and while I got one, getting tricked by Lugh who I didn’t even want, twice at that, was the worst. After I pulled Tate twice I decided to snipe red to get more Idoun copies, but it clearly wasn’t to be considering how much off-focus shit I got.

    All in all, rather disappointing. But I got about 50k feathers from sending home units, so Tate will be my next +10 project if she drops in rarity.

    • Sisyphe

      Didn’t get anybody but a second Brave Celica myself. In the grand scheme of it all, I can’t say I’ve had bad luck, but this was a bit of a bummer

      • I’d take that Death Blow fodder though. Right now I have two Lugh in my roster smiling ironically at me for wasting orbs on a colour that has two focus units, and he doesn’t really have particularly good skills at that.

        The worst thing is that I already went through this with Eldigan and Aira previously (got three of the former) , and I still didn’t learn lol

        • Sisyphe

          Oof yeah, I probably would’ve waited to see Sue again elsewhere, because Lugh doesn’t really seem to offer much unkess you’re really into Gronnserpent.

          I’m not really into the “4” skills at this point, as the marginal improvement doesn’t seem too neccessary to me. I guess I’ll save it for the next new unit I get that needs Death Blow. Still, I drained my orbs with only an Adrift Camilla and a Karel to show, and I could very well just send them home

    Forging Bonds is interesting for this banner. Is it the first time we’re seeing a “Support” for a antagonist character? We didn’t even get that in Warriors.

    • The Church of Shulkanism

      But… Aversa

      • dmurr

        Oh that’s true. You could recruit her and support her with Robin in Awakening though.

        • The Church of Shulkanism

          Does Loki count?

  • 3-13 Archer

    Idunn is everything Zephiel should’ve been.
    I saw they didn’t demote anyone from the Fates banner (yes, the one with those nice skills), so I sent a message regarding the 5* pool issue. And complaining about how FB must be the worst mode ever. At least tap battles are fun when the rhythm actually follows the melody.

  • CombatMagi

    I spent 150 Orbs got my 8%ish streak broken by a Keaton which I didn’t have so wasn’t as horrible as getting say ANOTHER Alm but all I wanted was Idoun and in the same circle I got a Lugh which is undoubtedly dropping in rarity after the banner and then a Linde in a Circle with no reds…. I really want her but the smartest thing to do is wait till she shows up in a mythic or a legendary banner and try to get her there.

  • Brave Lady Lyn

    Got blessed got 2 Idunns 1 with +Def superboon rng was on my side today!

  • 100%B-Type

    33 days? GHB Quest 2 ends on almost the same date, that means: new update~
    Got my Idunn in 60 orbs, now I only use some tickets for summon now!
