Heroes: New Heroes Banner “The Dread Isle” Trailer arrives, Drops February 16, Heath GHB February 18

If you’re a fan of GBA Fire Emblem games, you’ve been no doubt looking forward to a banner featuring some of this included cast. The Dread Isle Banner trailer has just been shared, and in it, come some fan favorites, such as Nils, Rath, Fiora and a personal favorite of mine, Leila.

This banner features a handful of new skills, including another in the line of Ruse and Form skills and the Guard-style Lance, as well as the introduction of some incredibly unique weapons on Leila and Nils, and interesting new skills in the Special cooldown canceling Even Pulse Tie 3 on Nils the brand new debuffing flier skill found on Fiora, Pegasus Flight 3.

Of course, the new banner batch comes with a new Story chapter, On Dark Wings, so look forward to Orb rewards from the expected quest lineup that comes with them. Additionally, Rath: Wolf of Sacae, will be available in the 4* Summoning pool, and is a 4* Focus unit, much like Conrad in the current holiday Days of Devotion banner.

Lastly, Heath: Wandering Knight, is the new reward unit for the upcoming Grand Hero Battle that kicks off on February 18. Meanwhile, the banner itself will be available as of February 16.
