FEH Legendary Jan 2018

Red: Legendary Ike, Sanaki, Siegbert

Green: Gunnthra, Performance Azura, Summer Xander

Blue: Fjorm, Summer Robin Female, Brave Lucina,

Colorless: Takumi, Summer Frederick, Faye

Thea highest price would be legendary Ike and performing Azura. What color will you pull?

Two days later, there will also be a hero fest banner. Brave Lyn, Brave Ike, Sigurd, and Nephenee will be in it, with an initial 5* rate of 5%.

Edit: Legendary Ike is good but not that great. He’s only slightly better than the original Ike.

Ike:                     42/35/31/32/18  158 BST

Legendary Ike: 41/36/30/35/21  163 BST

If you have Ike already, you can use him the same way. And the earth blessing only adds 3 HP and 2 ATK.

FEH Blessing Season Schedule and next legendary heroes

Blessing is a new feature added to Fire Emblem Heroes with the introduction of legendary heroes back in end of November 2017. If a hero is conferred with an element, then during the corresponding season, the hero can be 8 points stronger if goes in battle with the corresponding legendary hero. Blessing seasons are in sync with Arena reasons that they cycle on every Tuesday.

Here is a list of blessing seasons in the past for your reference:

11.28 (Tue) ~ 12.4 (Mon) Water earth. Fjorm, the legendary hero of Water

12.5 (Tue) ~ 12.11 (Mon) Water Wind

12.22 ~ 12.18 Fire water

12.19 ~ 12.25 water earth

12.26 ~ 1.1 water wind, Gunnthral, the legendary hero of Wind, out on 28th

1.2~1.8 Fire wind

1.9~1.15 Wind earth

With this pattern, 1.16~22 would be Wind, water, 1.23~29 maybe Wind Fire, which is likely to be the January legendary hero reveal date. It implies that the next legendary hero would be fire, corresponding to red, and the last one in Feb would be earth, corresponding to colorless. There are 2 movement types left, armored and flying. It would be rule breaking if they introduce a flying bow or dagger user. Or armored healer who can carry Ward Armor. I guessed they’d have one who can dance, but since Azura can already fly, it’s more likely to be a flying healer or ranger in February. Either way, I’d like that new legendary hero to join my force. If it’s a dagger user, it would be a usable one to debuff for Gunnthral but not occupying the previous spot to hit enemies.

Another fact revealed by the schedule is, if you want to cover all time, you need at least 3 legendary heroes and their corresponding teams (blessings are consumable so it’s not recommended to switch).

The tentative red armor unit would be strong too, stronger than Zelgius to draw whale’s attentions. But seriously, I think both Winter Tharja and Zelgius are pretty broken already.

The armor and flying legendary heroes will boost def and atk of blessing conferred units. We don’t know who will get what yet.

FEH Armor Emblem on New Year 2018

The New Year banner with Azura, Camilla and Takumi is no doubt a must draw for most of you, featuring the first flying dancer. However I’m following my own rule strictly until I get enough Amelia and Hector. So, I’m only pulling from the legendary banner this time, focusing on green, hoping to get my last Amelia, and some more Effie. The red heroes are all good too. Colorless has Elise who can be strategically important. Blue features 2 beautiful past limited heroes, Charlotte and Lucina, and I don’t mind getting more blessings either. Gunnthra is the big win in this banner for most people, since she’s the new legendary hero, and the first with reversed blade tome. We will talk more about her later.

I’d love to have all of them, but I’m a F2P. Let’s be realistic. If you remember my simulation last time, you need on average 65 orbs to get a green or any of the 4 colors. You need more if you want to draw with any other combinations. So I’m focusing on green to hoping get my last Amelia. This is really a great green pool for anyone who hasn’t got a +10 Amelia yet. Amelia is still the best hero to max to score the highest in arena. And she’s in the same pool as the green legendary hero. Unfortunately I my previous luck seemed gone this time. Since I got my Winter Tharja and Reinhardt in one round, I haven’t got any 5 stars. My pity rate was climbing to 9.5%, which is actually not that bad compared to my main account (14%). But the problem is, I don’t have any more orbs and the banner is ending tonight. It’s such a pity to let the high pity rate go wasted.

So I decided to get as many orbs as possible from the January quests today, until I clear my pity rate. And after it’s reset, I will never touch this banner again. I’m so glad I did – I got an Amelia, and also a Gunnthra! Other draws worth mentioning is I got a Klein who will turn into a brave bow for my brave Lyn.

So I’ve got all Amelia I need. It also means I’m free from my green only rules from now on. Well, I still have 2 Hectors to go. But my orbs in Jan will probably go into the flying singer pool for Azura. The more singers the better until you get 6 different ones.
