Heroes: Upcoming Willful Rabbits Banner brings bunnies on March 17

Summoners; with the Winter season nearly over, it’s Spring that now resides on our doorsteps, and Fire Emblem Heroes knows this, by welcoming the Spring season with the upcoming Willful Rabbits banner. This time around, we have four (plus one) alts aboard, and a Tempest Trials+ unit that’s a first-timer to the fray, giving us some love for Awakening and Sacred Stones series of Fire Emblem.

Say hello to Severa, Inigo, Minerva, and Harmonic-Hero Myrrh (plus Nah), and a special hello to the reward unit, Saleh: Vernal Sage, on March 17. Additionally, look forward to getting your hands on Minerva, as she’s the 4* Focus hero in this banner. Those aren’t the only surprises this time around though, as we also get access to the first Duel skill for Cavalry units, in R Duel Cavalry 4. There are many other powerful inheritable skills this time, as well as two Rein skills, another Duel 4 skill, and two unique inheritable weapons that boost Atk and Spd of the user and negate penalties too.

Again, this banner will drop on March 17, and run for one month. The Tempest Trial+ event kicks off on March 18

Heroes: Enduring Legacy banner brings Genealogy of the Holy War favorites to the fray

It’s that time again, Summoners. The next batch of new Heroes is upon us, in the Judgral-themed (Genealogy of the Holy War) Enduring Legacy banner that drops in just two days.

We get to see some upgrades to the Duel skills this time around, specifically in R Duel Infantry and B Duel Flying 4, both of which grant higher score caps and also some additional stats beyond HP +5. We also have a Deck Swabber equivalent in the Unbound Blade+ sword, and the first omni-phase brave weapon with Lex’s PRF Goddess Axe. What’s more, is that Lex is the 4* Focus unit, so Summoners may have a stellar opportunity to add a mighty unit to their Green Axe Cav pool.

Not only that, but we see in the story continuation, the appearance of one of the characters teased in the Book V video, Dagr, who joins the battle with their Axe and maybe flies? As for a character we don’t see, we will soon, in the upcoming Grand Hero Battle featuring Díthorba: Cutting Knight, on February 17 at the daily reset. She’s not a very well known character, so I’ll be interested to see how she is portrayed in FEH.

Finally, this banner will feature the Spark bonus (fitting, given Azelle’s weapon) on 40 summons, so Summoners are guaranteed to acquire a character of their choice.

This banner will kick off on February 15 at 11p PT (Feb 16 for the rest of us across the continental US and beyond).

Heroes: Special “Love of a King” Banner trailer drops, Heroes available Feb 4 at 11 PT

As teased yesterday, we’re seeing the next Valentine’s themed banner, in the Love of a King banner, and we sure knew the units, but we didn’t have the details on their skills. Well, we don’t need to wait too long to get them, as the trailer here just so happens to cover them!

Not only are we getting the units teased during the FEH Channel yesterday, in Gustav, Alfonse, Henriette and Lif/Thrasir as a Duo, but we’re seeing some doozies of skills in this batch. There are indeed the Cover-type skills, D/R Near Save 3 and A/R Far Save 3, on both Gustav and Henriette, which allow a unit to tag in and take damage for another nearby unit, but they’re also inheritable. We’re also getting the next -Form skill, in Def/Res Form, and two new inheritable tomes in the enhanced self-healing and debuffing based on nearby allies Amity Blooms+ and Unity Blooms+. That doesn’t even begin to describe the unique skills featured on the new Duo unit, of which, the most notable is the PRF C-skill that blocks Healing on targets.

This event will run from February 4 through March 4 (11p PT on both accounts).

Heroes: First FEH Channel of 2021 brings news of CYL Winners, Version Update News, A Hero Rises, and 4th Anniversary Rewards

Summoners, it’s that time of year again, in the form of the anniversary of Fire Emblem Heroes! We’re at its 4th anniversary, and have quite a bit of news to take in, courtesy of Feh’s latest Feh Channel. If you didn’t get to watch it, click here. I’ll do my best to summarize the key points though, assuming you skimmed the video, or can’t watch it quite yet.

Chrom and Byleth (F) received third place positions by a fairly sizable margin. For full results, click here.

Marth finally got his day, as well as Eirika, bringing two more Lords into the fray of Choose Your Legends victors, but they both found themselves in 2nd place, following Fire Emblem Three Houses’ Gatekeeper and Marianne. At first, I thought that the Gatekeeper votes were going to be just for kicks, but I’m stunned to see that he ended up victorious, even over short-end-of-the-stick Marth after all these years. I’m not dissappointed, however; I have great hopes for these units in their debut, and hope that you do, too!

The next A Hero Rises event starts today, in which Summoners can log onto a website (click Here) and vote for a beloved unit. The 8 units that win this contest, become a part of their own Voting Gauntlet featured later this year, and the winner of that Voting Gauntlet becomes a free gift unit to all Summoners.

The polls are open for 1 week, starting today, and the Voting Gauntlet itself will run from Feb 26 – Mar 4. The gifted unit will be distributed on Mar 10. Furthermore, the Top-4 Heroes in the Voting Gauntlet will be part of their own Summoning event, complete with Spark on 40. This will likely occur in March of this year.
