Heroes: Next Legendary Hero is Post Time-skip Edelgard!

The next Legendary Hero to appear in Fire Emblem Heroes isn’t a surprise but an inevitability: it’s Edelgard in her post time-skip outfit from Three Houses!

If you haven’t made significant progress in Three Houses, it might be a good idea to skip the trailer, but it’s probably going to be difficult to avoid spoilers at this point…

Edelgard’s Legendary banner will be available between 30th April 2020 and the daily rollover on 6th May 2020 (UTC).

Accompanying Edelgard are the following:

  • Red: Legendary Ryoma, Legendary Marth and Hrid
  • Blue: Naga, Duo Ephraim and Tsubasa
  • Green: Nagi and Legendary Celica
  • Colourless: Eir, Silque and Larum

For a breakdown of Edelgard’s abilities (and if you don’t mind spoilers), please continue reading.

Edelgard: Flame Emperor

Type: Green Axe Armour
Affinity: Fire (Pair Up)
Voice: Tara Platt
Artist: HACCAN

Weapon: Aymr – Grants Atk +3. If unit is not adjacent to an ally, inflicts Atk/Def -6 on foe during combat and foe cannot make a follow-up attack.
Special: Bonfire
A: Atk/Res Solo 3
B: Raging Storm – If unit initiates combat, grants another action to unit if unit is not adjacent to an ally after combat. (Once per turn. If skill that moves unit after combat is used, references unit’s position after that movement occurs.) If foe uses dragonstone or beast damage and unit is not adjacent to an ally, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.
C: Armored Stride 3 – At start of turn, if unit is not adjacent to an ally, unit can move 1 extra space. (That turn only. Does not stack.)
