Heroes: CYL3 Wraps Up & Mythic Hero 2 Appears

It’s been on the board for a while, but our week of fun has concluded, as the Choose Your Legends 3 event has come to a close. Votes will be tallied up and released by IS (and visible on their Twitter feed soon enough), but for now, we have a new Hero to worry about…a new Mythic Hero.

Valentia’s mad Rigelian god Duma graces our stage, and brings with him a heavy showcase of power to boot. Duma: God of Strength joins in the second Mythic Heroes banner as a colorless dragon armor, making him the first of his kind, and brings with him the attack boosting Anima blessing.

What’s more, is that he comes with the expected batch of 11 comrades (three in each color, in total), all available in an 8% focus-only session, including:

  • Blue
    • Kliff
    • Ryoma (Performing Arts)
    • Tiki (Legendary)
  • Colorless
    • Loki
    • Linde (Summer)
  • Green
    • Elincia (Performing Arts)
    • Ephraim (Brave)
    • Lyn (Legendary)
  • Red
    • Eirika (Legendary)
    • Ike (Legendary)
    • Laegjarn

The Mythic Heroes banner kicks off on January 29 at 11p PT, and runs until February 5, so if you’re interested in collecting this powerhouse, or those in his bundle, now’s a great time to mentally prepare yourself.

Heroes: Special Heroes (Hostile Springs), Comes January 23

If you caught the teaser pic from the other day, you’ll have probably had a hunch about an incoming hotsprings banner. Fans of the heat and squeaky-clean special summons can rejoice, as we’re about to receive just that, in the Hostile Springs Special Heroes Banner.

We do have a handful of new skills in this flier-centric series, aside from the neat variety of weapons, including Air Orders 3Atk Feint 3 and Spd Opening 3.

Included in the maps, Summoners can spot a flying Colorless dagger Camilla (someone arguably expected by fans, to appear in a Fates-based banner such as this). Camilla: Steamy Secrets will be a reward unit that can be earned in the next Tempest Trials+ event.

Hostile Springs brings with it, a paralogue miniseries (great for collecting Orbs), and the banner will be active from January 23 – February 22, (Midnight – 11:59 pm PT). If you’re interested in going for this batch, best of luck, and remember, there’s another Special Heroes banner coming out in a couple of weeks, so there’s a lot to consider for the month of February!

Heroes: Special Heroes (New Year’s of Fire and Ice), Voting Gauntlet and Sale Bundles

 

With 2018 about to come to a close, it was only a matter of time until the 2019 New Year banner was announced. Dataminers may have already given us spoilers as for what was to come, but for the rest of the summoners out there, that aren’t following along, come check out the New Year’s of Fire and Ice Special Heroes banner that was just announced.

This year, Nifl and Muspell join forces in this unlikely celebration, giving us a summonable foursome in Fjorm, Gunnthra, Hrid and Laevateinn. Outside of the quartet, Laegjarn: New Experiences (a Blue Lance Cavalier) will be available as a Tempest Trials+ reward unit, in upcoming Tempest Trials+: An ALliance of Princesses (starting January 1). In total, the banner brings us new debuff-centric units and new skills in Hone Atk 4 and Joint Hone Spd.

Of course, this banner comes with a Paralogue series, so prepare for the standard batch of Orbs and likely, associated quests for more Orbs.

 

Beyond dealing with the incoming units in general battles, there is a Voting Gauntlet to prepare for. This voting gauntlet pits the 2018 vs the 2019 New Years units, in a fairly assorted batch that happens to include the Tempest Trials reward Corrin [M]. Will this mean that the batch of alts from last year will be available in a banner? Given the history of VGs, the answer is likely yes, so good luck (in advance) in scoring a New Year’s Camilla, Takumi or Azura for the Voting Gauntlet.

Finally, it looks like two new one-time purchase sales will be coming, bestowing to buyers a combination of 140 orbs, 10,000 Hero Feathers and the differentiating components of the two sales, either Fjorm: New Traditions and 400 Aether Stones or Laevatein: Kumade Warrior and 200 Heroic Grails. Each is available for $74.99, and only available for the month of January, 2019.

Heroes: Legendary Hero (Azura: Vallite Songstress)

Our next Legendary Hero has finally arrived, and she’s a Dancer to boot!

Enter Azura: Vallite Songstress, a Blue Mage Flier with a Res boosting Water Blessing. She comes with a new weapon specifically designed for her, the Prayer Wheel, what might be both a highly valuable and highly controversial dance skill in her Gray Waves, and brings the game its first blue Duel skill, in B Duel Flying 3. She’ll fit right in for your Arena team, when she is in the Bonus batch of course.

This Legendary Hero banner kicks off on December 27 at 11p PT, and wraps up on January 7 at 10:59p PT. Along with Azura, comes the usual batch of buddies available at 8%, equaling to three units per color. This group includes:

  • Blue
    • Fjorm
    • Camilla (Summer)
  • Colorless
    • Eir
    • Takumi (Summer)
    • Veronica
  • Green
    • Hector (Legendary)
    • Helbindi
    • Nino (Flier)
  • Red
    • Flora
    • Marth (Legendary)
    • Tiki (Young Summer)

Good luck, summoners!
