Earlier this week, Version 1.1.0. of Three Houses landed, bringing in playable Jeritza and Anna, fancy maid costumes, the sauna, animal play-time and various other hi-jinks. As it happens, Version 1.1.0. also contains some hidden data related to the upcoming Wave 4 DLC…
For those unaware, Wave 4 is planned for release before May 2020 and will feature brand new story content, playable characters, etc. According to the Famitsu guidebook, the new story content is known as “Abyss Mode” (at least in the Japanese version).
Since the new update, the sneaky developers have already started setting up the new story content. Eager fans may have noticed various in-game references to the abyss below Garreg Mach Monastery and its mysterious inhabitants, the “Abyssians”. Which weren’t there before.
Ironically, there’s more below the surface… Thanks to leftover placeholder data found in the new update, we can shed some more light on some of the content planned for Wave 4. In particular, the 4 new characters and classes mentioned in Famitsu.
Before we continue, please note that the information in this article is all from our preliminary searches–and there’s probably more to be found. Also, some of the data may change once the DLC is actually released. Last but not least, a big thanks to DeathChaos25 for their research and assistance!
From 8th November 2019, fans can now download the new Version 1.1.0 update for Three Houses.
This update adds some new features (including playable Jeritza), quality of life changes (more save files!) and bug fixes for all users. Plus additional content for expansion pass owners (playable Anna, new costumes, playing with animals, the sauna, etc.).
If you’ve been closely following Three Houses news, some of these features were revealed via the Famitsu guidebook released a few months ago. From here on, there is one more wave of DLC planned, featuring new story content (the mysterious “Abyss Mode”) and much, much more.
Anyway, if you’re interested in the detailed patch notes, please continue after the break or pay a visit to Nintendo’s website!
Of note, the new update fixes a bug with the Adjutant Follow-Up attack rate, causing it to be lower than usual for specific support levels, which I believe we were the first to discover. It’s nice that somebody noticed or reported this bug to Nintendo.
(Also, we’ll update our Three Houses pages with info for Anna and Jeritza etc. as soon as we can. But it might take a short while.)
The next Legendary Hero has been announced, via a trailer, and it just so happens to bring back some Judgral love, with Leif: Unifier of Thracia.
Leif, Unifier of Thracia, is a Colorless Bow Cavalry, who brings with him the Meisterbogen (Master Bow) which behaves much like Reinhardt’s Meisterschwert, and a handful of unique skills, including a repeat of his signature B skill, S Drink, Atk/Res Push 4, and also, a unique personal Special skill, Njorun’s Zeal, which when procced, gives Leif a second action. He’ll also be a Water blessed “Duel” effect Legendary Hero, with the Pair Up ability. This banner will run from October 29 until November 4.

Today, the Three Houses Perfect Guide–a guidebook published by Famitsu–came out in Japan. Interestingly, it has a a page that briefly outlines the contents of the currently unreleased Wave 3 and 4 DLC (alongside the released ones).
Many thanks to the Japanese fan who posted it and Ein on GameFAQs for sharing it. Of course, in this day and age, it’s possible to fake pages like this. However, there’s a similar page from the guidebook, which has a similar layout and style.
Past here is a translation of the DLC contents. Please note that there are some very minor spoilers.
