The second summer surprise trailer dropped on us, just an hour before the end of the Headbands [Guys] vs Headbands [Gals] voting gauntlet ended. Mia won, and while that may not be have surprised some people, the people in the upcoming Summer Refreshes banner may surprise many.
Japanese trailer available here.
Yes, the second Summer Banner features units from Elibe, but they don’t all seem to be who fans expected them to be. Among the batch, includes Fire Emblem Binding Blade’s Wolt and Lilina, and Fire Emblem Blazing Sword’s Lyn and Ursula. We already have a Grand Hero Ursula available, so an alt of her is quite a surprise, while Wolt joins the likes of Charlotte and Noire in the Alt-sclusives Only pool.
Among the new skills featured in the upcoming banner, we have a handful of new inheritables, such as the inevitable Sabotage Def 3 (Lilina), as well as the upgrade Brazen Atk/Spd 4 (Wolt), and the brand new line of skills with the Ruse name, Def/Res Ruse 3 (Ursula). Among the already available skills, Arena lovers will enjoy another unit carrying the Rally Up Res+ skill (Lilina) , as well as Sturdy Impact making its return on a unit other than Tibarn (Lyn).
One interesting post is that in both the Japanese and English trailers, Wolt’s bow lists 14 Mt and 1 Rng, which is atypical of inheritable bows, nonetheless bows in general (The only inheritable bow with more than 12 Mt is the Silver Bow, running 13 Mt). No update on it has been announced yet, but I have a feeling that a correction will come with the banner’s official drop.
UPDATE: Wolt’s Big-Catch Bow+ is confirmed to only have 12 Mt and is a Range 2 weapon, as expected.

To add more excitement, the next upcoming free unit, as a Tempest Trials+ reward unit, is Fire Emblem Blazing Sword’s very own Fiora, Defrosted Ilian, a Red Sword Flier.
This banner will run from July 9 until August 9. If you’re excited for this batch of units, keep your excitement going, as we’re also due to receive a Three Houses themed banner soon, with the release of the game. Orb management might be hard, but I believe in you, Summoners!
Finally, the fifthRevival Banner is up, featuring Mist: Helpful Sister, Ike: Young Mercenary and Ike: Brave Mercenary . Remember, that these Revival banners have a 4% focus rate on the featured heroes for a 5* summon.
