Heroes: Kempf Grand Hero Battle now available, and December Calendar revealed!

Today in FE Heroes, we see Kempf of Thracia 776 trotting into Heroes as the latest Grand Hero Battle reward!

Kempf is a cavalry sword unit, who comes with his own PRF weapon at 5-Stars, the Venin Edge (Grants Def+3. After combat, if unit attacked, deals 10 damage to target and foes within 2 spaces of target, and inflicts status on those foes preventing counterattacks through their next actions.) His other skills include Aegis, Fortress Res 3, and Savage Blow 3.

Extreme lack of decent skill fodder aside, he also has no redeeming qualities when it comes to his 5-Star level 40 stats: 42 HP, 33 Atk and Spd, 27 Def, and 26 Res at base. With all his base weapons and skills equipped, his stats will come to 42 HP, 46 Atk, 33 Spd, 30 Def, 31 Res.

It’s clear that he’s intended to be a mixed tank who deals most of his damage through his PRF and Savage Blow AoE. Attach another Savage Blow through the Seal slot to do 24 AoE damage in total. He can also potentially run Vantage on his B slot to hopefully finish off melee enemies on the enemy phase after they have already been damaged by the AoE, assuming he himself gets within Vantage range. He should easily do so given his bulk. Replacing Fortress Res 3 with Fury 3 will also safely and more reliably bring him down to Vantage range with the 6 Dmg after each battle, as well as increase his Atk stat by 6, Spd by 3, Def by 3, losing only 2 Res.

Heroes: Tempest Trials+ “A Child’s Wish” Incoming & October/November Event Calendar

We knew about it from the recent Feh Channel, but today we got the formal announcement of the next Tempest Trials+ event in Fire Emblem Heroes.

“A Child’s Wish” will start from the daily rollover on 14th October 2019 and end before the next rollover on 24th October 2019. Exclusive rewards include a special version of Rolf (colourless cavalry archer) and the Swift Stance 1, Defiant Atk 1 and Chill Def 1 Sacred Seals.

If you want to prepare, the bonus heroes (that boost your score) will be the Halloween versions of Duo Hector and Lilina, L’Arachel, Dozla, Ilyana and Rolf, plus the normal versions of Hector, L’Arachel and Oscar. If you haven’t scored a new Halloween Hero, the latter two are nice budget options.

…And if you really needed a helping hand, there is currently a summoning banner featuring regular Hector, L’Arachel and Oscar. This could be a good chance to score yourself a Hector (or Distant Counter fodder).

Before we continue, there’s a quick update regarding the “Build a Field” Aether Resort quest. If you were quick and bought all the fields (like me) before this quest was released, the offending quest has now been replaced with the much more doable “KO Foe” quest.

Last but not least, the Fire Emblem Heroes team shared the event calendar for mid October to mid November. Highlights include new summoning banners during 20th October and 6th November, plus a new Legendary Hero banner on 28th October. For a text breakdown, please continue after the break!
