Heroes: Legendary Alm Finally Gets His Day, Drops April 27

Alm finally got his day, as Alm: Saint-King, the next Legendary Hero, is now summonable in the first Gaiden-themed Legendary Hero Banner!

Japanese Trailer: Here

Alm, an Earth-blessed Legendary Hero that provides the same bonus as Legendary Roy before him, comes in as a Colorless Bow Infantry unit, and brings with him, a handful of new and useful skills. Aside from his B and C being the already in the game Null Follow-up 3 and Odd Attack Wave 3, he brings the new A skill Darting Blow 4 (granting +9 Spd on initiation), the new Special Lunar Flash [2] (Treats foe/s Def/Res as if reduced by 20% during combat. Boosts damage by 20% of unit’s Spd) and his personal bow, Luna Arc (14 Mt | 2 Rng | Eff. vs Fliers | Grants Spd +3 | If unit initiatse combat, deals damage = 25% of foe’s Def. [Ignores reductions to Def crom special skills like Lunar Flash.])

Alm is pretty much joining with a bow that rocks permanent half-Luna, and a perf that implies that he’ll be one speedy boy. If you want to boost his speed more, he comes with the Pair-Up ability, making him number two after Legendary Roy.

Of course, Legendary Banners aren’t just known for their Legendary Hero; they also feature an 8% summoning rate on a select batch of 12. This Legendary Hero summoning event runs from April 27 until May 7, and brings:

  • Red
    • Ike (Legendary)
    • Marth (Brave)
    • Roy (Legendary)
  • Green
    • Fae (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Hector (Brave)
    • Sue
  • Blue
    • Ephraim (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Fjorm (standard)
    • Nailah
  • Colorless
    • Alm: (Legendary)
    • Eirika: (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Leanne

Considering the popularity of many of these Heroes, this is looking to be a pretty exciting banner to summon from. Should you opt to drop some orbs, then I wish you good luck, Summoners!

    Red, Blue and Colorless all have units I want. Hopefully my 350 total orbs will be ready.

    Best of luck to all pulling.

    Proceeding to hate on Alm because he’s receiving two alts in one year.
    I’m actually skipping this since I already have every unit I really like (except Nailah) and I’m already pulling for normal Alm. Kudos to the pool update that didn’t improved anything.

      Compared to someone like Camilla? Alm deserves two alts (you were probably joking about Alm getting two alts, seeing as how you have that part lined out for a lack of a better description, but its true that he deserves some alts). It honestly wouldn’t surprise me if Celica gets a Legendary alt sometime this year too and it’d be based on her overclass with her title to go with it that she gets at the end of SoV.

      • 3-13 Archer

        It was a joke, but I fear some people will actually think that way. It happened with Hector: he was unlucky that all his alts came in the same year (until then he didn’t have any) and people hated on both him and Armads, even when each Armads had completely different effects. I hope I am wrong.

        • Mason Klaus

          Yeah I figured as much in terms of you joking. And yeah most likely some will get mad about this but unlike Hector at least this Alm is wielding a bow and not Falchion again. Hopefully when his brave alt comes out he’ll be wielding something he normally wouldn’t.

    Just wanted to point this out but you got Marth and Hector wrong, you have them titled as Braves (which Marth’s isn’t out yet) but those are their Legendary selves.

      Ahh, thanks for the alert. I’ll have that fixed right away!

      • Mason Klaus

        No problem. 🙂
