Despite being a no-show in the latest “Ice & Flame 5” event, Ascended Laegjarn will debut in the next New Heroes banner, “New Heroes & Ascended Laegjarn”, which begins on 17th November 2021 (UTC).
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
The featured Heroes in the banner are: Volke, Astrid, Marcia and Ascended Laegjarn. Tanith also appears in the banner as a non-featured Hero. Meanwhile, Bertram will be available via the upcoming Grand Hero Battle. Excluding Laegjarn, these Heroes all originate from Path of Radiance.
Alongside the new Heroes, there will be a new story chapter that concludes the Book V arc, “Specter of Niðavellir”. There’s a good chance the final boss of Book V will appear in this month’s Mythic Hero banner, perhaps even alongside Thorr–similar to Freyja and Triandra last year (but that’s just a guess).
Please continue for a breakdown of the Heroes from the trailer!
