In a break from tradition, it seems there won’t be dance-themed banner in Fire Emblem Heroes this month. Instead, this month’s Special Heroes are celebrating the “Day of the Twelve”, a festival found in Jugdral.
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
“Scions of Twelve” will run from 7th September 2021 (UTC). The featured Heroes are Larcei, Julia, Lewyn and Harmonized Leif and Seliph. Nanna, who appeared in the silhouette prior, will be the Tempest Trials reward (Staff Flier).
Please continue for a breakdown of the Special Heroes from the trailer!
This version of Leif is wearing white and blue armor based on Nifl, the ice kingdom. His resplendent form will be available from 10th May 2021 (UTC). You can check out more artwork (by Suekane Kumiko) and voice clips via his webpage.
There’s some more Jugdrali-themed news today as well. The next Hall of Forms starting from 25th April (UTC) will feature Heroes who fought alongside Leif–from the 2nd generation of Genealogy of the Holy War.
Larcei: Keen Kin
Shannan: Wielder of Astra
Ced: Hero on the Wind
Altena: Luminous Rider
With the introduction of the Celestial Stone, even free-to-play players can eventually earn a Forma Soul needed to redeem a Forma Hero.
The next Legendary Hero has been announced, via a trailer, and it just so happens to bring back some Judgral love, with Leif: Unifier of Thracia.
Leif, Unifier of Thracia, is a Colorless Bow Cavalry, who brings with him the Meisterbogen (Master Bow) which behaves much like Reinhardt’s Meisterschwert, and a handful of unique skills, including a repeat of his signature B skill, S Drink, Atk/Res Push 4, and also, a unique personal Special skill, Njorun’s Zeal, which when procced, gives Leif a second action. He’ll also be a Water blessed “Duel” effect Legendary Hero, with the Pair Up ability. This banner will run from October 29 until November 4.
This is a Legendary Hero, of course, so a slew of other Heroes will be available in Leif’s summoning event. Included at an 8% summoning rate will be:
Leif (Fully equipped):
HP: 40 | Atk: 47 [38 + 9 from his weapon] | Spd: 17 [22 – 5 from his weapon] | Def: 29 | Res: 27
9 Mt | Rng 2
Effective against flying foes.
Inflicts Spd -5
Unit attacks twice (even if foe initiatse combat).
When under player’s control, unit gains: “If unit initiates combat, foe cannot make a follow-up attack.”
Njorun’s Zeal  (Special)
If unit initiates combat, grants another action to unit after combat. (Once per turn.) When Special triggers, inflicts “restricts movement to 1 space” on unit and Pair Up cohort through their next action.
Atk/Res Push 4 (A)
At start of combat, if unit’s HP is greater than or equal to 25%, grants Atk/Res +7, but after combat, if unit attacked, deals 5 damage to unit.
