Heroes: Info for Version 5.7.0, Arriving 5~6th July

Wow, we’re already halfway through 2021. Anyway, we have some new details for the upcoming July version update for Fire Emblem Heroes. You can read all about it via the official website, plus we’ll go over everything right here.

Team Skill Lock

A new button will be added in the team selection screen that allows you to lock the equipped skills and Sacred Seals for all the Heroes in a particular team.

It can be used via:

  • Edit Team (also available in multi-map battles)
  • Edit Reserve Team(also available in multi-map battles)
  • Edit Brigades (only for your own Heroes, not your friends’)
  • Form Raiding Party (Aether Raids)

After locking a team in this manner, it won’t be possible to switch in or out Heroes from that team.

Since the lock only applies to skills, you can still change the Hero’s blessing or traits, etc. Also, if you get rid of a Hero or send them to a Reserve barracks, they will disappear from the team.

New Legendary Skills

Legendary Lyn and Robin will be receiving some new skills to make them more competitive.

Lyn: Lady of the Wind

A: Laws of Sacae II – If unit initiates combat or if unit is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+6 during combat, and also, if foe uses sword, lance, axe, dragonstone, or beast damage and unit’s Spd >= foe’s Spd +5, foe cannot counterattack. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
C: Joint Drive Spd

Robin: Fell Vessel

A: Dragonskin II – Neutralizes “effective against flying” bonuses. If foe initiates combat or if foe’s HP >= 75% at start of combat, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +6 to unit during combat and neutralizes foe’s bonuses (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.). This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
C: Spd/Res Rein 3
