The summer Orbs just keep coming in Fire Emblem Heroes! Today marks the beginning of the new Bound Hero Battle: Micaiah & Sothe event. Accessible in the Special Maps menu, successfully completing all the BHB challenges will earn you nine Orbs!
But that’s not all! Accompanying the new BHB is a Summoning Focus banner featuring the fearsome duo, along with Sanaki.
Bound Hero Battle: Micaiah & Sothe will be around for a little over a week, ending on 28 August. Considering we just received word the next banner involves the Choose Your Legends winners, I advise beating the new BHB as quickly as possible.
The next Legendary Hero for Fire Emblem Heroes is here! The Legendary Heroes – Lucina Summoning Focus is available until 6 August, giving you a week to obtain the latest version of Lucina. Be sure to check out the trailer for our new blue bow user, if you happened to miss it.
Besides Lucina, 11 other 5★ Heroes make up the focus for the Legendary banner. The units are: Legendary Ryoma, Exalt Chrom, New Years Camilla, Azura, Ishtar, Legendary Lyn, Christmas Lissa, Valentine Lilina, Legendary Robin, Brave Lyn, and Bow Hinoka. As per the usual, you have an 8% chance of pulling a 5★ focus Hero, with a 0% chance of pulling an off-focus 5★ unit.
A new Legendary Hero Battle is also available! Similar to BHBs and GHBs, defeat Legendary Lucina and her allies without losing any of your own Heroes to clear these new Special Maps. Complete the Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal difficulties to earn nine extra Orbs! Checks out the Infernal map layout and Lucina’s Infernal stat spread below.
We also got some news regarding when these Legendary Heroes will be appearing again. Legendary Robin will be back again during the next event in August, and Legendary Lyn will be back in October. Neither Legendary Ryoma nor Legendary Lucina will be back again until late November.
A new summoning focus has appeared in Fire Emblem Heroes! If you favor a more defensive playstyle, the banner for Heroes with Distant Defense might be for you! The 5★ focus units this time are Celica, Micaiah, and Rhajat.
These Heroes all possess the Distant Defense skill for their A Slot. Distant Defense grants the user an additional six Defense and Resistance if under attack by a foe two spaces away. It’s a great skill for units who prefer to retaliate to an attack, rather than initiate combat.
You can attempt to summon the units on this banner until 7 August. Whether you’re after the Heroes themselves or the Distant Defense skill, good luck!
However, keep in mind we should be learning about the next Legendary Banner soon. You may want to save your Orbs until we know which Heroes will appear in a couple of days.
As Tempest Trials+ begins to wind down, a new event has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Head to the Special Maps section to challenge Bound Hero Battle: Leo & Elise.
As per the usual, complete the Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal difficulty maps with your strongest teams to earn a total of nine Orbs! Remember, every Hero you deploy in battle must survive, so tread carefully.
The BHB also comes with a banner, so if you like Leo, Elise, or Camilla, now is the perfect time to try for them.
Bound Hero Battle: Leo & Elise will be here until 29 July, giving you just under a week to snag some extra Orbs. While you’re at it, don’t forget about the new Blessed Gardens map in the Garden of Fire!
