Heroes: Ascended Laegjarn Co-Stars with Tellius Folks!

Despite being a no-show in the latest “Ice & Flame 5” event, Ascended Laegjarn will debut in the next New Heroes banner, “New Heroes & Ascended Laegjarn”, which begins on 17th November 2021 (UTC).

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The featured Heroes in the banner are: Volke, Astrid, Marcia and Ascended Laegjarn. Tanith also appears in the banner as a non-featured Hero. Meanwhile, Bertram will be available via the upcoming Grand Hero Battle. Excluding Laegjarn, these Heroes all originate from Path of Radiance.

Alongside the new Heroes, there will be a new story chapter that concludes the Book V arc, “Specter of Niðavellir”. There’s a good chance the final boss of Book V will appear in this month’s Mythic Hero banner, perhaps even alongside Thorr–similar to Freyja and Triandra last year (but that’s just a guess).

Heroes: More Archaneans Arrive with Ascended Fjorm!

The trailer for the next batch of New Heroes is here–and there’s a twist. “New Heroes & Ascended Fjorm”, which runs from 18th October 2021 (UTC) will feature characters from Mystery of the Emblem alongside the new Fjorm from the “Ice & Flame 4” Tempest Trials+ event.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The featured Heroes in the banner are: Wolf, Malice, Roshea and Ascended Fjorm. Wolf and Roshea are members of the Wolfguard, an elite squadron created by followers of Hardin. Meanwhile, Malice is a mercenary who debuted in BS Fire Emblem and returned in New Mystery of the Emblem.

As for Fjorm, she’s the first Ascended Hero–a new type of Hero that comes with a new mechanic. Ascended Heroes can be given an Ascended Asset, which is a second Asset, in addition to their default Asset/Flaw. This is effectively a free +3 or +4 to a secondary stat.

Non-Ascended Heroes can also be given an Ascended Asset by using an Ascended Floret item. One Floret will be awarded the first time a unique Ascended Hero is summoned (but no more). Also, one Floret will be awarded the first time you access the “Ascend Traits” menu (so all players will get 1 and lucky players can get 2).

By the way, if you need to change a Hero’s Ascended Asset after the fact, you can do so by using a Trait Fruit. Furthermore, Ascended Assets have no impact of Arena scoring etc.

Besides that, the remaining two members of the Wolfguard will also be available. Sedgar: Coyote’s Dutiful will appear in an upcoming Grand Hero Battle, while Vyland: Coyote’s Justice will be obtainable from special Quests, before being added to the summoning pool from the next Special Heroes banner.
