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.)

Heroes: Múspell Grand Conquests, Weekly Revival 14 & Performing Arts Re-run

We have a fairly eventful Sunday in Fire Emblem Heroes, as a new Grand Conquests event kicks off. Having conquered all the currently known continents, our attention moves towards the realm of Múspell, which we visited back in Book II.

The three armies are all led by Múspell’s finest generals: sisters Laevatein and Laegjarn and rough but kind Helbindi. Presumably Surtr is watching menacingly from afar.

Curiously, the map is exactly as the same as the southern half of the World not continent of Zenith (where Embla is apparently located). However, the notification and Twitter accounts emphasise that this is indeed the kingdom of flames.

If so, are Nifl and Múspell an(other) alternate version of Askr and Embla? Your guess is as good as mine.

In other news, the 14th weekly summoning revival is up. This one features Linde, Saber and Sonya–all fairly strong Heroes with powerful weapon refines. Also, the Performing Arts re-run started yesterday. For a month, you can try to summon special dancer versions of Inigo, Olivia, Azura and Shigure from 2017.

Heroes: “Life of Heroes” Character Comics & Special Artwork

During late August, a physical version of the official Fire Emblem Heroes “Life of Heroes” comic was released in Japan. It included 83 of the currently released chapters, as well as some brand new character-specific illustrations and comics.

If you’re interested, you can check out these extras on Kirokan‘s website–as well as translations of all the chapters released thus far.

By the way, if you’re wondering why the name of the comic keeps changing… “Life of Heroes” is the official spelling according to the physical version of the comic itself. The other names are simply fan interpretations of the Japanese title.

Also, you may have noticed that the character illustrations all use the official English spellings, despite some of the characters having different names in Japanese (like Sharon versus Sharena). Yet they used the Japanese name (Eclat) for Kiran…

Heroes: New Dancer Special Heroes Silhouettes!

Feh snuck out of the Heroes headquarters last night to give us a stealthy update. New Dancer Special Heroes will be arriving on 6 September! Check out their silhouettes below:

Who do you think these heroes could be? We should find out in a couple days with a special preview trailer. I hope you’re looking foward to it!
