Heroes: “Heroes with Bonfire” banner now live!

Today’s Fire Emblem Heroes content drop is a banner containing Heroes with Bonfire!

OG Myrrh, Nah and Idunn are the focus Heroes here. An overall great banner with powerful units, so it’s understandable if you want to sploodge your Orbs on this banner. However there is that new Heroes banner coming out tomorrow too, so the choice is yours.

It is available to summon from until the 26th of September, 6:59am UTC.

Heroes: The Chosen Ones Banner, Brings 4 + 1 New Heroes, and Next GHB Announced

If my headliner doesn’t make sense, don’t worry; I didn’t get it at first either. What’s to sum up is that this New Heroes: The Chosen Ones banner is bringing more than a handful of units and obligatory Paralogue chapter. It’s bringing more, in a possible new trend that’s sure to appease Summoners across the globe.

I can’t say much about Sirius and Norne, other than the fact that it appears as though their skillsets promote a charge-ahead style and defensive style of play, respectively. Phina’s Rapier is an incredible offensive and defensive weapon, making her a very appealing Dancer unit. Nagi, however, is the game’s first 1-range “Raven”-weapon user, and her Ethereal Breath weapon has an almost hilarious amount of useful abilities built into it, from a Killer cooldown boost, to its Raven ability, to being effective against dragons, to another first of its kind, reduction of AoE special attack damage.

Arguably, the most interesting thing about this banner is that Bantu: Tiki’s Guardian (a Red Manakete with Dragon Fang) will join the roster as a non-focus 3/4 star Hero, making this the first time a new Hero can be summoned immediately that isn’t a 5 star Hero. Perhaps this trend will continue?

Finally, the next Grand Hero Battle was announced, and that kicks off on September 23. It will feature Astram: Midia’s Hero, who is likely to be a Red Sword Infantry. The Chosen Ones banner will kick off starting September 19 at 12a PT, and all Heroes will continue to be available for future summoning events.

Heroes: Tibarn and Caineghis BHB, Weekly Revival Banner 15 & Lost Lore in Elibe

There are a few things happening in Fire Emblem Heroes this weekend. Firstly, you can challenge Tibarn and Caineghis in a new Bound Hero Battle until the daily rollover on 23rd September 2019.

These Laguz Kings from the Tellius duology are each formidable foes by themselves, so fighting both together could get pretty rough. If you like what you see, you can try to summon Tibarn and Caineghis, as well as Reyson who came for the ride, in a summoning banner that lasts for the same time.

Speaking of summoning, the 15th weekly revival summoning banner is now up. This one features Deirdre and Eldigan from Genealogy of the Holy War plus Azura from Fates. If you’re a fan of those characters, now’s a good chance since the base 5-star focus rate is 4%.

Last but not least, the 2nd Lost Lore event, “One of True Sight”, started yesterday and will continue until the rollover on 5th October 2019. This one seems to cover the history of Binding Blade and encourages summoners to deploy Heroes from that game and its prequel, Blazing Blade.

I’ve only played a bit of the event, but it’s interesting to see two of the cities in the Western Isles receiving localised names for the first time: Juteaux (Jutes) and Eidyna (Edina). Maybe there’s more in the history book itself? (I haven’t checked the data-mines yet.)

Cipher S18 Weekly Recap: L’Arachel and Lysithea SRs, Pre-release Livestream Reminder

Welcome to the fourth weekly recap for Series 18 of the Fire Emblem Cipher card game, “Oratorio of Embarkation”. As a reminder, this year’s 2nd expansion will include characters from Three Houses, The Sacred Stones and Awakening.

On Monday, the official Twitter account revealed a pair of cards for Ferdinand von Aegir, who’s always trying to make a name for himself within the Black Eagle house. His first card shows him as a Noble, while his second card is when he’s a seasoned Paladin.

On the next day, we were treated to a dazzling pair of cards of L’Arachel, the evil-smiting princess of Rausten. Her first card is her as a Troubadour, while her second card is a SR+, depicting her as a Valkyrie with the sacred tome Ivaldi.

Halfway through the week, we got a singular card of Hilda, from the Golden Deer house. Was she too lazy to submit a second card of herself? Anyway, this is her as a Brigand.
