The next Great Hero Battle begins tomorrow in Fire Emblem Heroes! The next villain you’ll be able to recruit is Legion from New Mystery of the Emblem. @FE_Heroes_JP shared the following image as a preview of his battle map.
Legion comes with a special weapon, Legion’s Axe. This axe has the same effect as the Panic Staff, turning his foe’s bonuses into penalties. He also comes with Fury, Obstruct, and Reprisal.
The new GHB will be available starting tomorrow, 16 June, at 7:00am UTC. Beat Legion’s Hard map for a 3★ version of this hero and Lunatic for a 4★ version! Presumably, we’ll also get a new focus banner with specific units to help defeat him.
New Mystery of the Emblem has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Echoes of Mystery contains a new Summoning Focus as well as a new set of Paralogue Maps and associated quests. Check out our earlier article for the character introduction trailer!
The Summoning Focus contains four new 5★ characters: Katarina, Roderick, Athena, and Luke. Roderick (“Rody” in the fan translation) and Luke originated in Mystery of the Emblem, whereas Athena and Katarina are remake-exclusive characters. Athena also appeared as a special side-story character in Shadow Dragon.
The Echoes of Mystery paralogue contains three new maps. Play each map on all three difficulties for up to nine Orbs! Playing the maps on Lunatic under certain conditions will net you an additional three Orbs. Quest details can be found below.
The paralogue maps also give us a look at some of New Mystery‘s villains: Legion (“Roro”) and Clarisse (“Kleine”). Both appear as enemies in the maps, and may soon be available in future Great Hero Battles as well.
The new banner and quests will be around for a little over two weeks until 30 June at 6:59am UTC.
Additionally, rewards have been given out for the Tempest Trials Kick-Off Event! Heroes players more than doubled the the 1-billion point goal, and as a result, all players get a bonus present of 10 Orbs and 5,000 Hero Feathers. Visit Feh to collect your rewards.
A new Summoning Focus is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Heroes with Vantage contains, as you may expect, heroes who have the valuable Vantage skill.
You can pull three 5★ Focus Heroes in this new banner: Gordin, Lon’qu, and Reinhardt. These three units are the only summonable heroes who come with Vantage. Like the recent Weapon Triangle focus, this focus does not have any associated quests or specific in-game uses. It seems to exist for people to have a wider variety of units to summon.
The Heroes with Vantage summoning focus will be available for a couple of weeks until 26 June at 6:59am UTC.
We’ve had another exciting week of news and reveals for the upcoming Series 9 of Fire Emblem Cipher! As usual, the @FECipher twitter account has been busy sharing new cards each weekday. Today’s revealed card is the third and final green SR and features Jill from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
