Heroes: Múspell Grand Conquests, Weekly Revival 14 & Performing Arts Re-run

We have a fairly eventful Sunday in Fire Emblem Heroes, as a new Grand Conquests event kicks off. Having conquered all the currently known continents, our attention moves towards the realm of Múspell, which we visited back in Book II.

The three armies are all led by Múspell’s finest generals: sisters Laevatein and Laegjarn and rough but kind Helbindi. Presumably Surtr is watching menacingly from afar.

Curiously, the map is exactly as the same as the southern half of the World not continent of Zenith (where Embla is apparently located). However, the notification and Twitter accounts emphasise that this is indeed the kingdom of flames.

If so, are Nifl and Múspell an(other) alternate version of Askr and Embla? Your guess is as good as mine.

In other news, the 14th weekly summoning revival is up. This one features Linde, Saber and Sonya–all fairly strong Heroes with powerful weapon refines. Also, the Performing Arts re-run started yesterday. For a month, you can try to summon special dancer versions of Inigo, Olivia, Azura and Shigure from 2017.

Heroes: “Life of Heroes” Character Comics & Special Artwork

During late August, a physical version of the official Fire Emblem Heroes “Life of Heroes” comic was released in Japan. It included 83 of the currently released chapters, as well as some brand new character-specific illustrations and comics.

If you’re interested, you can check out these extras on Kirokan‘s website–as well as translations of all the chapters released thus far.

By the way, if you’re wondering why the name of the comic keeps changing… “Life of Heroes” is the official spelling according to the physical version of the comic itself. The other names are simply fan interpretations of the Japanese title.

Also, you may have noticed that the character illustrations all use the official English spellings, despite some of the characters having different names in Japanese (like Sharon versus Sharena). Yet they used the Japanese name (Eclat) for Kiran…

Cipher S18 Weekly Recap: Claude SR, Frelian Siblings Paired Cards and More!

Today I’ll be filling in for Kirie, as we cover the third weekly recap for Series 18 of the Fire Emblem Cipher card game. For those unaware, this series features cards from the recent Three Houses, alongside old favourites from The Sacred Stones and Awakening.

The first card of this week belongs to Hubert, the tactician of the Black Eagles. He is currently a Monk, his most fitting Beginner class. No other cards of his were shown off, unlike the other Three Houses characters later on in the week.

Next in the spotlight is one Felix Hugo Fraldarius, representing the Blue Lions. His first card depicts him as a Noble, while his second card is him as a Swordmaster.

For day 3, we have two cards of Libra from Awakening. The first card shows Libra as a Priest, presumably before the events of the game. Glancing at this card, I’m not surprised he was mistaken for a Cleric… Meanwhile the second card is War Monk Libra as we know him.
