Heroes: Grand Conquest Pre-Registration Open w/ Slight Update

This brief period of time in Heroes has given Summoners a good chance to complete some of their Forging Bonds quests, or monthly September quests, but there’s news to come, for the upcoming Judgral-focused Grand Conquest.

While it kicks off in a little over 48 hours from now, there is a slight change to the previous formula: Knock-outs now occur at at a 200,000 point milestone per territory, rather than the previous 100,000.

Start preparing your lead unit if you haven’t already, and best of luck to you during the upcoming Grand Conquest, Summoners!

Heroes: Garon, King of Nohr GHB Available Now

If you’d been waiting for your chance to give Garon a good stomping, you can breath and reprieve, as Garon, King of Nohr can be defeated, and recruited, via his Grand Hero Battle, available now until September 27.

 

Garon, a Red Dragon Infantry (much different from the Axe role he fulfilled in Fire Emblem Fates) can run with no inheritance at 5* rarity, Dragon Fang, Distant Def 3, Panic Ploy 3 and his unique breath, Breath of Blight, which has 16 Mt, 1 Rng and the effect: Neutralizes “effective against dragons” bonuses. At the start of turn 4, deals 10 damage to foes within 3 spaces, and restores HP to unit = number of foes within 3 spaces × 5. If foe’s Range = 2, calculates damage using the lower of foe’s Def or Res.

This GHB of course comes with various methods of orb acquisition and it will be around for only 7 days, and that’s not all; a new Tactics Drill is available so don’t pass these one up!

Heroes: Generals of Múspell Joining the Ranks

With the conclusion of Book II upon us, Summoners can now get their hands on Múspell’s notable cast, in the new upcoming summoning banner, Generals of Múspell.

In this banner, summoners may be fortunate enough to acquire one of Helbindi, Laegjarn or Laevatein, all of whom come with a unique batch of skills. Generals of Múspell will be active starting September 21 at 12a PT, and its Heroes will stick around through future summoning events.

Some of these skills (G Duel Infantry 3 and R Duel Flier 3) are notable, in that they are the first skills which directly impact scoring for modes like Arena/Arena Assault by design and description. They allow your unit to be scored as if they have more stats than they actually have, for scoring purposes, allowing for some interesting deployment tactics for teambuilding. This is a big deal for units like Caeda, who have a score within the 150s, and can provide significant score boosts. This doesn’t boost a unit’s stats, aside from the specifically mentioned HP +5, this just simulates a boost for scoring purposes.
