Heroes: 30th Anniversary Banner on April 20 brings young stars aplenty

Fire Emblem’s 30th anniversary is just days away, and thanks to the most recent FEH Channel, we all knew it was coming, and I for one, am glad to see that big things come in small packages. It’s time, folks, for Fire Emblem Heroes’ The Start of It All banner trailer!

This will feature a handful of cutie patootie young’ins, in the forms of Marth, Caeda, Merric, and all three Whitewing sisters as one single Duo hero! Looks like Intelligent Systems had trouble counting there…

We also have the next Tempest Trials+ reward unit in the form of Minerva, who has a PRF weapon of her own. To make people more excited, Marth: Legacied Hero, is going to be part of the 4* pool, making him that much easier to snag! Furthermore, some new inheritable skills hit the fray, in the forms of a new Oath and a dual Chill skill. Some other ridiculously effective non-inheritable skills have appeared, so it will be interesting how this shapes some things coming forward.

This event kicks off on April 20 and runs for 1 month, until May 20. Looks like this will be a fun 30th anniversary! Good luck, Summoners!

Heroes: Harmony amid Chaos Banner brings Three Houses Star-Students on March 5

Things definitely dropped early today, in the Harmony amid Chaos banner, which hours ahead of time, informed Summoners of the incoming Three Houses themed banner, introducing Ferdinand (von Aegir), Lysithea, Bernadetta and Annette to the fray.

The batch comes with a couple of continues line skills, such as some more Rouse, Gap and Lull skills. Additionally, the coveted Atk/Spd Push 4 is present, so if you’re looking for ways to bolster up your healers, diving into the colorless pool may not be a bad option.

The Flame Emperor was also spotted, implying that they’re the next Grand Hero Battle reward unit. Flame Emperor was spotted wielding a Guard Axe+, but your mind can wander about the rest of the skillset.

The banner itself kicks off on March 5 at 11p PT (so March 6 if you live on the east coast or in Central time, like myself).

Japanese Trailer available here.

Heroes: Legendary Hero Chrom video drops, kicks off February 27.

I sure wasn’t expecting to see Chrom in the Legendary Hero bracket, but it looks like he got his chance today, in the next Legendary Hero banner as Chrom: Crowned Exalt.

Chrom himself follows in his Legendary daughter’s footsteps as a Blue Infantry archer, but this time is of the Water blessing, has Pair Up potential and brings the Duel bonus (what the BST rating is, has not yet been confirmed). His skills are definitely geared towards either just dealing immense amounts of damage, not taking too much physical damage, and with his unusual Assist skill, has a combo once-per-turn Reposition/Dance/Rally Atk+ all in one (with a drawback to balance it out). His setup includes the following:

  • Voice: Matt Mercer | Art: Hino Shinnosuke
  • Randgridr
    • 14 Mt | 2 Rng
    • Effective vs Armors
    • Effective vs Fliers
    • Grants Atk +3.
    • If foe’s HP = 100% at start of combat, neutralizes penalties on unit and inflicts Atk/Def -6 on foe during combat.
  • To Change Fate! (Assist)
    • Moves target ally to opposite side of unit and grants another action to unit.
    • Grants Atk +6 to unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) for 1 turn.
    • Inflicts [Isolation] on unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) through their next action.
      • [Isolation] Target cannot use or be the target of Assist skills through its next action (Sing, Dance, Harsh Command+, Restore, etc.)
      • (Does not stack)
  • Close Counter (A)
  • Lull Atk/Def 3 (B)
  • Rouse Def/Res 3 (C)

Of course, Legendary Hero banners always include friends at an 8% focused summoning rate. This time, Chrom’s crew includes:

  • Blue
    • Azura (Legendary)
    • Julia (Legendary
  • Colorless
    • Alm (Legendary)
    • Corrin (Fallen)
    • Duma
  • Green
    • Gerik
    • Gunnthra
    • Lyn (Legendary)
  • Red
    • Eirika (Legendary)
    • Phina
    • Sothis

 

Personally, I’m going to try to use this as a chance to dive into the Colorless pool, because Alm and Corrin are pretty intense units.

This Legendary Heroes banner runs for a week, from February 27 until March 3, so if you’re after any of these Heroes, or want a beefy Blue archer, now’s a great chance!

Heroes: New Heroes Banner “The Dread Isle” Trailer arrives, Drops February 16, Heath GHB February 18

If you’re a fan of GBA Fire Emblem games, you’ve been no doubt looking forward to a banner featuring some of this included cast. The Dread Isle Banner trailer has just been shared, and in it, come some fan favorites, such as Nils, Rath, Fiora and a personal favorite of mine, Leila.

This banner features a handful of new skills, including another in the line of Ruse and Form skills and the Guard-style Lance, as well as the introduction of some incredibly unique weapons on Leila and Nils, and interesting new skills in the Special cooldown canceling Even Pulse Tie 3 on Nils the brand new debuffing flier skill found on Fiora, Pegasus Flight 3.

Of course, the new banner batch comes with a new Story chapter, On Dark Wings, so look forward to Orb rewards from the expected quest lineup that comes with them. Additionally, Rath: Wolf of Sacae, will be available in the 4* Summoning pool, and is a 4* Focus unit, much like Conrad in the current holiday Days of Devotion banner.

Lastly, Heath: Wandering Knight, is the new reward unit for the upcoming Grand Hero Battle that kicks off on February 18. Meanwhile, the banner itself will be available as of February 16.
