On Friday, Fire Emblem Heroes revealed the highly anticipated Three Houses banner, but male Byleth was strangely absent. Of course, players can receive a free copy by purchasing Three Houses, but they said he’d be available to summon as well.
It turns out the male Byleth will debut in this month’s Mythic Hero banner, starting from 31st July 2019. However, they emphasise that male Byleth is not the new Mythic Hero. So he will simply be one of the 12 focus Heroes in the banner.
They don’t go any further than that, but I’m assuming he’ll be added to the regular summoning pool once the Mythic Hero banner expires. This is also when the Three Houses banner expires, so the timing is perfect.
Anyway, you can find his 5-star skills below:
- Weapon: Creator Sword – Mt: 16, Range: 1, Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count -1). During combat, disables foe’s skills that guarantee foe’s follow-up attack or prevent unit’s follow-up attack, and neutralizes skills that grant “Special cooldown charge +X” to foe or inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
- Special: Ruptured Sky – Cooldown: 2, Boosts damage by 20% of foe’s Atk. If in combat against a dragon foe or a beast foe, boosts damage by 40% instead of 20%. Cannot be used by dragon, beast or staff units.
- A Passive: Distant Counter – Unit can counterattack regardless of foe’s range. Cannot be used by ranged units.
- B Passive: Chill Spd 3 – At start of turn, inflicts Spd-7 on foe on the enemy team with the highest Spd through its next action.
- C Passive: Odd Spd Wave 3 – At start of odd-numbered turns, grants Spd+6 to unit and adjacent allies for 1 turn. (Bonus granted to unit even if no allies are adjacent).
Yesterday’s reset in Fire Emblem Heroes brought us the last event listed in the previous calendar. However, Feh doesn’t want to leave us waiting too long for news; the July & August 2019 Event Calendar is already here! Check it out:
There are a few exciting things coming up soon, it looks like. First up is a mysterious Aether Raids Event which will start on 22 July. We’ll also be getting some New Heroes and Forging Bonds on the same day, and then again just a couple weeks later on 7 August!
Additionally, a new Mythic Hero will be arriving at the end of the month! We’ll also be getting one final new character with the unnamed Grand Hero Battle beginning on 3 August.
Other highlights include other events, such as: a new Bound Hero Battle featuring both Morgans, Røkkr Sieges, Voting Gauntlet, new Quests, Grand Conquests, lots of summoning banners, and more. You can see a full text breakdown below the “Read More” link below.
Last up, a new Tactics Drills: Skill Studies is now available! Beat it to earn yourself 300 Hero Feathers.
A new Bound Hero Battle is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! You can tackle Bound Hero Battle: Marth & Caeda in the Special Maps menu at your convenience. There’s also a special banner in honour of the new event, featuring 5★ focus units for Marth, Caeda, and Catria.
As usual for BHBs, there are three difficulties available: Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal. Beat them all to earn 9 Orbs! However, you’ll need to keep your whole team alive to be successful.
Bound Hero Battle: Marth & Caeda and its associated banner will be around for around a week, ending on 14 July.
Heroes has also given us a team for the next upcoming Special Heroes banner! Check it out here. Who do you think they could be?
Hopefully we’ll be finding out soon, as the banner itself starts in just a few days on 9 July. That means we should get a preview trailer in the next day or two.
Newly announced today, a special Three Houses Promo will be available to Fire Emblem Heroes players. If you buy the latest Switch game, you’ll receive a free Byleth: Tested Professor!
In order to redeem this prize, you’ll need to have your Heroes account linked to a Nintendo Account. Furthermore, you’ll also need to connect the same account to your Switch. You can see the full details for redemption here.
The promo announcement doesn’t tell us a whole lot about Byleth, but it does say that he’ll also be available in regular summoning events. It’s looking like we’ll be getting at least one 3H banner in late July.
Heroes will begin promo distribution on or after 26 July. If you can’t get your hands on 3H right away, no worries; the promo will be available until 29 June, 2020.
