Heroes: Harmony amid Chaos Banner brings Three Houses Star-Students on March 5

Things definitely dropped early today, in the Harmony amid Chaos banner, which hours ahead of time, informed Summoners of the incoming Three Houses themed banner, introducing Ferdinand (von Aegir), Lysithea, Bernadetta and Annette to the fray.

The batch comes with a couple of continues line skills, such as some more Rouse, Gap and Lull skills. Additionally, the coveted Atk/Spd Push 4 is present, so if you’re looking for ways to bolster up your healers, diving into the colorless pool may not be a bad option.

The Flame Emperor was also spotted, implying that they’re the next Grand Hero Battle reward unit. Flame Emperor was spotted wielding a Guard Axe+, but your mind can wander about the rest of the skillset.

The banner itself kicks off on March 5 at 11p PT (so March 6 if you live on the east coast or in Central time, like myself).

Japanese Trailer available here.

    Why is my girl an axe wielder? She should be a green tome

    • mathwizard91

      If you’re talking about Annette,I think being an axe wielder makes perfect sense. Her crest is needed to properly wield the hero relic Crusher, which is an axe

      • Daniel Smith

        Fair point

  • Zog58

    I think they actually did a really good job translating the units to FEH.

    Annette may be a monster offensively but that depends on her Atk stat. I forsee her getting more def but less spd to make her “bulkier”. She could be a good Vantage sweeper in AR, since having universal adaptive damage is unique to her and her alone with a 19 Mt weapon. Her real niche will be using the second effect to set up effective rally traps, though. I am terrified at the thought of more ways for teams to send buffed up L!Alm charging at you in AR. They did my girl well.

    Bernie honestly looks like a better Claude which isn’t great for him. Her personal was pretty much added here, though, which I like. Can’t see her severely outperforming +10 Louise or Rolf without some merges.

    Ferdy is the demote. Not much to say here, maybe his stat spread will be unique?

    Lysithea is the next Ophelia and will be a monster on AR Def teams that use I Pulse. Notably, I don’t think her weapon will work with Blazing or Growing skills, which is different, but Dragon Fangs will be nasty. BIke just took a hit in his overall usefulness unfortunately. It looks like now more than ever Blue and Colorless tanks are going to be the safest bet going forward.

    Meanwhile as long as she is the one attacking Lysithea is still a tactical nuke with her casual +14 atk if she attacks when her special is ready. Which it should always be between Hades and Time Pulse.

    • Zog58

      My near 50 Res Kaze is sweating nervously for sure. I hate to see what she can cook up with Infantry Pulse teams.

  • Brave Lady Lyn

    Well all my orbs for my girl Lysithea are ready and then I gotta save up more for her adult brave version(excluding the free copy) I’m gonna need all the luck to get her!!!!

  • Big Klingy

    Lysithea’s weapon isn’t Dark Spikes, 0/10.

    Jokes, but I didn’t expect Annette with Crusher. That’s cool though, so I’m okay with it.

    • CombatMagi

      It’s probably going to be her Brave weapon to be fair.

      • Big Klingy

        I’m guessing her Brave variant will be a Staff unit using Thyrsus.

        • CombatMagi

          Lorenz is the name of the disposable key that unlocks Thyrsus right?
