It’s been an expectation since shortly after the release of Fire Emblem Three Houses, but now it’s finally upon us; the Forces of Will Fallen Heroes banner brings Edelgard and Dimitri into the fray, as well as both male and female Morgans from the Fire Emblem Awakening series (specifically, the DLC).
This banner boasts not only powerful-looking units, but powerful skills on those units. Among these skills includes the return of Armored Stride 3, Dive-Bomb 3 and Odd Tempest 3, as well as the new and presumably inheritable C -Menace skills, which appear to be a hard buff+debuff variant to the -Rein skills ‘in combat’ style of debuff.
Additionally, there is a new Tier 4 A skill in the -Ideal line, which applies combat buffs based on HP being full, [Bonus] being present on unit, or if both conditions are met, the buffs provided by each check. Furthermore, both Dimitri and Edelgard come with mighty PRF B-skills in Murderous Lion and Armored Wall, respectively, with Murderous Lion being effectively a Canto +1 & Firesweep Solo skill for an infantry unit, and an improved Special Fighter skill packaged with a Dark Creator Sword and Sol Lance effect (in a once-per-turn 40% damage reduction and a 7 HP after combat effect). I won’t even get started on any of their weapons, all of which include hefty descriptions that you can see below in full detail.
To keep the news rolling, the upcoming reward unit will be Orson, from Fire Emblem Sacred Stones. If you’re unfamiliar, he’s been seen in game as a cavalry unit, wielding either a Silver Lance or a Runesword, so commence speculation. W should also be noted is not only the one time Spark on the 40th summon, but also the Celestial Stone item, which is earned after 40 summons, and can be exchanged for valuable resources including the illustrious Forma Soul (equivalent for one free unit from the Forma Halls events).
Dimitri, Edelgard and the Morgans will be available for summoning starting on May 7 at 12a PT, following the next Version Update.
