Fans have long anticipated the reveal of the Choose Your Legends 5 quartet, and today, we finally have news on them, in today’s Feh Channel and Keepers of Faith Banner Trailer!
To summarize, we have:
- Marth, an incredibly powerful sword infantry that despite bringing a Falchion as per normal, comes with a wild assortment of buffing abilities for himself and his party members, a new Distant Counter type of A skill, and a conditional Vantage that has no HP check
- Eirika, a very strong lance cavalry unit that has a strong defensive build in both her weapon’s %-reduction and her self-healing A skill through, as well as a B skill that acts as an enhanced Luna that also disables Guard effects
- Marianne, a colorless tome infantry dancer that can reflexively dance a nearby unit simply by engaging in combat on player phase, including other dancers.
- Gatekeeper, a super defensive green tome infantry that comes with a Close Counter variant, a useful version of Obstruct through his B Prf, and a weapon that bestows a variety of debuffs on enemies based on cardinally-placed allies similar to the Arvis/Saias 3-row/column range condition.
Along with these mighty units, comes a way to free-summon during this Choose Your Legend Summon Event. Summoners will get a free pull of their choice immediately on release (nothing new here as every banner has a free ‘Redeem’ on it), but also, a free Spark’able unit of their choice at 40, 80, 120 and 160 Summons. The caveat to this is that for each one that you pick, they become unavailable for following Sparks, meaning that you cannot spark a single unit more than one time in this. You’ll also get up to four Celestial Stones through these Sparks.
There’s a bit more news to add, as the Choose Your Legends 4 selection that is present for new players, will be expiring by August 31. If you have a friend that may want to give Fire Emblem Heroes a shot, encourage that they attempt to join and summon before then, to score a powerful free Hero.
Additionally, starting on August 17, there is a Dragonflower upgrade, as all units can have an additional 5 Dragonflowers spent on themselves, at a cost of 40, 80, 120, 160 and 200 per application of Dragonflower. Each applied Dragonflower will apply +1 to a unit’s stat, as per normal. Conveniently, there will be a Log-In bonus, awarding Summoners with 120 of each Dragonflower, allowing for effectively a free +2 application to a unit [per each of the 4 movement-types] of their choice. This Log-In Bonus only requires a single log in.
Through courtesy of the Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter accounts, we have news that Pelleas: Ashnard’s Orphan will be the next Grand Hero Battle unit, kicking off on August 18. I expect him to be a Red Tome unit, per his Dark Magic weapon proficiency from Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, and his art, which is visible through the official Meet The Heroes page.
Speaking of that, the Meet The Heroes page has been updated with all four of Eirika, Gatekeeper, Marianne and Marth, as well as Pelleas. Full in-game character artwork for each of the five can be seen on these pages, as well as the chibis, and some story details if you’d like to see them. I highly recommend you check out Gatekeeper’s, at least for the animals in his in-game and chibi artworks.
