Fire Emblem Heroes: Steampunk 776

I'm very surprised IS thinks Three Houses can't carry on its own with the Ashen Wolves that Muspell had to be added. Even if Balthus was in this regular banner it'd still sell well.

Really makes one think what they are going to do when we get to Awakening, Radiant Dawn, and Binding Blade again. (The last I can see being the start of Book VI with the new main character)

I genuinely do not think this was a case where it was "they couldn't carry on its own" as much as "we happened to have these two things coincide and do not care"

Yeah I guess this new trend isn't a way for them to prop up banners that couldn't sell otherwise, if they did it on a banner with some of the most requested units in the game then they clearly are just doing it because they want to sell some new OCs. Interestingly, this leaves the most requested characters next on the list to be mostly TMS so maybe it's time for TMS to get its second and final non-seasonal banner?

As for the banner itself, Yuri looks pretty broken uh, basically a dagger cav but without cav effectiveness as a downside? Also our first dagger unit the entire year, our last one was Merlinus in November. Balthus is also a pretty cool demote choice because it means we already have an accessible 185 bin infantry unit and we get a copy of him for free, so that's one less copy to worry about for those looking for a new project. Early in the new BST gen too so plenty of opportunities to roll him and get copies of him throughout the year.

At this point I expected a generic tome for him, but I was hoping it'd at least be a new one.

And now that WarioWare's Ashley's Red is dead, we can summon him!


Red: L!Eliwood, Altina, and V!Palla
Blue: L!Chrom, Zeke(?), and OG!Marianne
Green: Otr, L!M!Byleth, and L!Celica
Colorless: Bowmaniacs (L!Leif, L!Claude, and Shinon)

Red sucks, blue is decent, and green and colorless are stacked.

A pretty tame Mythic banner overall, but that's not so bad every once in awhile. I think Celica really brings down the green pool's quality but otherwise Otr himself is fine and Byleth is fantastic too. I wondered how they'd make up for the fact that his weapon was kinda just bad but I forgot giving him a new modified weapon was something they've done before. Definitely not going to be rolling for any Claude merges this time around though since I've long +10ed both of the other two units there, but he's a very low priority summoning target for me anyway.

I was hoping for a new Anima mythic to get my 7th slot and got exactly that, but I think in the end I'll probably pass since Celica is a bit of a dud pull for me. I'll just wait until a rerun for my 7th slot mythic though and just stick to the free circle this time, not like I'm struggling on Astra season with 15 total merges on offense.

Intern kun really screwed the pooch this time. The english twitter accidentally tweeted out the contents of the next banner
Sothis (Duo), Rhea, Grima-M, Kurthnaga (was listed third, so likely the demote)

Unknown who the TT is

Julius got Dragon Wall, and then he got Atk/Res -6 on enemies if they're not dragonbusters, and then he got Sabo Atk/Res, and then he got Atk/Res -5 on enemies for the hell of it.

Kids gonna learn about the great FE4 Loptyr wall now.

Actually managed to get a free Duo Sothis with Res+/HP-.

Then two more nice off-focus gifts.

Melady is Spd+/HP-. Not sure if Spd is that important to her despite having a skill that exploits it on her favor.

Would have liked to free pull Kurth for his weapon but no reds on my free circle, got a Quan instead though which is still nice.

Also uh, I know the TT skills for the previous bosses weren't necessarily indicative of the actual unit kit but Super Fjorm having Darting Stance 3 and Chill Def is uhh, not doing a good job of selling this unit. Will be interesting to see what her actual kit ends up being because right now she's not looking to impress despite the insanely broken weapon.

Since the pain that was dealing with Picnic Flora, all TT+ bosses have gotten degrades to their kits, so yeah.

Imagine the nightmare dealing with NY!Plumeria with just Dance allowed.

It's a case by case basis, most actually don't get changed at all.

Just going from last year's halloween to now:
halloween grima: unchanged
ninja lyn: unchanged
winter sephiran: unchanged (they didn't even give him a b skill??)
new years plumeria: got rid of only dance
plegia tharja: base kit + a b skill, with Chill Res (sephiran left in tears)
Kralphonse: Alfonse's base kit, but with Guard. DB3 & Spur Attack were not upgraded to tier 4 or anything
spring myrrh: lost distant counter, kept everything else
kid erika: lost distant foil, kept everything else
wedding catria: unchanged
summer hilda: she got a balm added to her kit
pirate surtr: lost his menace prf skill.

So generally they look at if it becomes a problem and go from there.

Nifl & Muspell I left out because they're a little special, but let's take a quick look at them because Fjorm is most comparable to the two of them (a new unit previewed in a tempest for release later with "proper" skills)
Tempest Nifl: No assist. Draconic Aura. Swift Sparrow 2. Lull Attack/Speed. Joint Drive Res
Release Nifl: Rally Def/Res+. No Special. AR-D Attack/Speed 4 (new). Lull Attack/Speed. PRF skill.

Obviously the AR-D skill wouldn't be here, it'd be worthless, so Swift Sparrow is basically a placeholder to sort of emulate it (though a Push skill likely would've worked better). Her PRF skill, like all OCs, wanted to be kept until playable so she got one that referenced it.
No real logic to going from no assist/DA to double rally/no special.

Tempest Muspell: No assist. Ignis. Bracing Blow 2. Dragon Wall. Joint Drive Def.
Release Muspell: Rally Up +. No Special. AR-D Def/Res. Dragon Wall. PRF Skill

Similar logic, though the joint drive doesn't work as thematically.

I presume one of Dating Stance or the Chill will get replaced with a new skill (either a prf or a new tier 4 skill that's not in the game) but it's still not....good.....

NCD built into the weapon of an armor unit focusing on speed and Res, it's clear she'll come into the pool carrying a Far Save, the first main pool unit to do so.

Dunno about a PRF skill to replace the A or B slot though, since Fjorm already has a PRF skill: Ice Mirror. Maybe she'll get an alternative to Ice Mirror II?
