Heroes: “Changing Winds” banner now live, new story chapter, and more!

The newest banner to land in Heroes – “Changing Winds” – is the second banner to feature characters from Three Houses.

Petra, Mercedes, Hubert, and Hilda are now summonable. You can read more into their skills and weapons in the initial video reveal. The banner is available from today and will come to an end on the 28th of August, 6:59am UTC.

As with each new unit banner, a new story chapter comes to accompany them. Book III, chapter 10Omnicidal Witch” is now available to play and earn Orbs from, alongside the limited-time Lunatic difficulty quests which reward you with extra Orbs for their completion.

The Askr Trio, with the aid of Veronica, have found the key to killing Hel. On the way to their destination, however, they are rudely intercepted by Thrasir. After a solid defeat, Thrasir unveils a truth about herself that absolutely nobody would have expected.

Also worthy of notice (since I forgot to mention it in a previous news post) but our next Grand Hero Battle will feature the Death Knight, of Three Houses fame. Fans of this spooky boy should watch out for his imminent arrival, as well as his appearance in Book III, Chapter 10: Part 4.

Other news includes Forging Bonds, today’s daily 2018 banner rerun, and information on two Special Orb Promos. Click on “Read more” below to do just that.

This Forging Bonds event’s story is a little different. Instead of the four new Heroes appearing in Askr and being found by the Askr Trio & Friends as usual, the Askr Trio have landed themselves in the continent of Fódlan – where the events of Three Houses takes place – and have been found wandering around by our four new Heroes.

Rewards for participation are a maximum of 14 Orbs (2 daily), 8 new accessories, 4 Summoning Tickets, as well as the usual goodies like Sacred Coins, Grails, Crystals,  Shards, Badges, and a boatload of Feathers.

Today’s daily 2018 banner re-run event beings us Heroes with Countering Weapons Skills.

OG Dorcas, OG Nowi, and OG Lobster are our three Foci for this banner for today only. Get your free summon in.

This month’s Special Orb Bonus is accompanied by a Summer Special Orb Bonus.

  • August Special Orb Bonus: 22 Orbs and 60 Sacred Coins for the regular price of a monthly Special Orb Bonus, and
  • Summer Special Orb Bonus: 30 Orbs and 20,000 Feathers for a little bit more than the usual price of a monthly Special Orb Bonus.

That’s it for today.
