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: New video featuring the four new Brave Heroes, and more!

Today, the Nintendo Mobile official YouTube channel released a video featuring the four newest Brave Heroes in conversation around a campfire. The Heroes are fully voiced in both English and Japanese versions.

You can watch the Japanese version here.

In other Heroes news, today we get two banners to summon from:

The banner on the left features Heroes with Solo Skills, where Lethe, OG Flora and female Fallen Corrin are the focus units. On the right side, we have today’s 2018 daily rerun banner: Heroes with Vantage, featuring Sword Reinhardt, OG Mia, and Ishtar. While the daily banner will disappear tomorrow, the Heroes with Solo Skills banner is available until the 1st of September, 6:59am UTC.

Today’s bi-daily Year 2 GHB rerun is none other than Garon: King of Nohr.

Complete the accompanying Quest to earn your 4-Star copy of him before the GHB is rotated out on the 22nd of August, 6:59am UTC.

Heroes: Revival Banner #5 Up and Next Summer Banner Revealed, Drops July 9

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.
