Each time a new Mythic or Legendary Hero gets released, my daughter and I watch the banner trailer together. She was super excited to see today’s trailer, mostly because she enjoys the characters advertised as cute (which according to her, include long-time favorites in Nino, Ephraim, Eirika and Fae). Who did today’s trailer announce? None other than everyone’s favorite chicken dragon, Fae: Childlike Dragon!
Legendary Blue Breath Fae comes coupled with some pretty unique PRF skills, notably in the form of a new inheritable Distant Counter variant, Distant Stance, and an extremely unique PRF Special, Life Unending. It functions similarly to the base Miracle, except that at turn 1, it cools down to activation status immediately, and also fully heals Fae the first time it procs during a map’s battle. This makes Fae extremely durable, because her weapon can reduce universal stats and negate follow-up attacks (although she is still susceptible to units with Brave weapons that pierce her PRF on the first strike, or that can ignore her follow-up negation).
As far as inheritance goes, this is a pretty good one, because one could conceivably pass Dragon’s Ire and Def/Res Menace, or Dragon’s Ire and Distant Stance, (or Distant Stance and Def/Res Menace) depending on the inheritor’s skills. Free/Grail unit Aelfric can supply a unit with the needs for Def/Res Menace, which may help Summoners plan inheritance if they’re not interested in keeping multiples of Fae, but score some with good fortune.
On a secondary note, she comes with the Duel Blessing under the Earth Affinity, and the expected Dual Unit status (showcased this time with Sophia).
Included in the Legendary Hero banner are the expected 11 companion heroes, all of which feature the 8% Appearance Rate. This batch includes:
- Alm (Legendary)
- Roy (Legendary)
This banner will run from October 29 (12:00 PT) until November 4 (11:59p PT). If this banner interests you, then good luck, Summoners!
