Heroes: New refines for Myrrh, Donnel, Draug and Clarisse coming in next month’s version update!

Version 4.6.0 is going to be a quiet one, bringing literally nothing more than the expected: new refines, new limited ephemera lineup, level caps raised for structures in Aether Raids and Mjolnir’s Strike, 3 new songs in the Concert Hall, and 2 Heroes added to the Grail summoning pool.

New weapon refines:

Myrrh will receive a refine for her Great Flame, while Draug, Donnel and Clarisse will receive new refine-able prf weapons Stelwart Sword, Hewn Lance, and Sniper’s Bow, respectively.

Once we have specifics for these new weapons/refines, they will be posted.

Ephemera 6 combat manual lineup is as follows:

5-Stars: Summer Robin, Summer Innes.
4-Stars: Lon’Qu, Ares, Sully, Klein, Kaze.

 

Aether Raids structure, the Healing Tower (O/D), will have its level cap raised to 7.

Three new songs will be added to the Concert Hall in Aether Resort: “The Ark of Dawn (Classic)” from Shadows of Valentia, “At Peace” from Radiant Dawn, and “Going My Way” from Blazing Blade.

Mjolnir’s Strike structure, the Heroic Banner, will have its level cap raised to 4.

Additional Heroes will be available via Heroic Grails:

Minerva: Princess-Knight
Iago: Nohr’s Tactician

That will be it for 4.6.0. It’s small but I’m looking forward to +10 Minirva after saving my feathers and grails for so long, as well as Myrrh’s refine.

Cipher Merchandise Available via Japanese Online Store!

As mentioned during last weekend’s Cipher livestream, Intelligent Systems will be selling Cipher merchandise new and old via their online store.

If you’re interested in the Cipher products specifically, you’ll want to use the provided link. The main highlights are Art Works 19 and 20, which will be releasing for the first time. But there are many legacy items too, including lots of play mats!

Finally, after nearly 5 years, I might actually get the little sisters play mat!

Pre-orders can be made before the end of 14th June 2020 (JST). Please note that shipping is only available within Japan. Also, it’s possible that some items may sell out before the end of the pre-order period.

Fire Emblem Cipher Art Works 1 to 20 (2,200 Yen each) and Extra Selections (3,850 Yen)

These are glossy art books featuring artworks from the corresponding Cipher series. So Volume 20 has artwork from Series 20 and so forth. Extra Selections has assorted artwork from promo cards.

Pictured are Volumes 19 (left) and 20 (right).

Fire Emblem Cipher Play Mats – 3,850 Yen each

These are lovely play mats used for playing Cipher, other card games or just admiring. Normally, they’re incredibly difficult to acquire, being among the first products to sell out during events. Don’t let this chance slip by!

The available designs are: Little brothers (pictured above), Little sisters, Big sisters, Big brothers and Pixel Heroes

Heroes: Resplendent Roy, Three Houses Revival, Twitter Vote for Next Event Revival & “Shrouded Skirmish” Voting Gauntlet!

This week in Fire Emblem Heroes is off to a busy start! Firstly, Feh Pass owners can now receive their Resplendent Sanaki. Afterwards, the next Resplendent Hero being offered will be Roy: Young Lion.

You can check out his artwork and some of his voice clips via the Feh Pass website. Resplendent Roy will be available from 10th June 2020 (UTC), after the distribution for Sanaki ends.

Next up, the 2019 Three Houses banner will be returning until 2nd June (UTC). This time around, the guaranteed 5-star focus Hero after 40 summons will be in place! Previously this was intended for New Heroes only, but presumably they’re testing the waters.

Also, the corresponding Forging Bonds event “Joining Forces” is back for the same time period.

Furthermore, there’s a vote on Twitter for the next banner and Forging Bonds revival to be held in July. The candidates are Changing Winds, The Chosen Ones, Zofia’s Call and Desert Mercenaries. Voting will continue until approx. 30th May (UTC).

Like the Three Houses revival, the next revival will have the guaranteed 5-star summon, so this could be a good chance to nab a Hero that previously slipped from your grasp. Perhaps with enough pushing, they’ll add it for Special Heroes too?
