Fire Emblem Heroes: Steampunk 776

"Tis an honor to be recognized."
Went all in with the Double Special Hero Banner with 120 orbs.

Got:
Y!L'Arachel (Atk+/HP-)
Maribelle (Res+/HP-)
S!Gustav (Spd+/Atk-)
A spare OG!Innes (Atk+/Spd-)

Eh. I guess this is nice. Kid L'Arachel is very much worth it.

150 orbs gave me nothing, but some missing story orbs got me another circle with both Duo Catria and Myrrh, so that ended up being nice

And it's the Wolfguard + Malice! With Sedgar as the GHB and Vyland who looks like the free unit we get. Also Ascended Fjorm where if you summon for her, you get another currency that gives a superboon. I really don't like how they handled that currency.

Edit: Actually, seeing as it is only being given once you get one A!Fjorm, that actually isn't toooo bad.

It honestly baffles me that the new currency is only given once per unit.

Like it's good, since if you're going to do this I'd like it to not be pure unadulterated whale bait, but it's just...weird? Like this is PRIMO whale food, come here and start summoning all the ascendent heroes you can forever, gotta give them to everyone on your AR teams, everyone on your Arena, everyone forever give us that fat stacks of cash.

On top of that, this banner is also like...not very good outside of Fjorm. Not even just character appeal being niche, none of these units look very relevant and there's also literally no new notable skills worth rolling for since Hardy Fighter is usable almost exclusively on this Fjorm. It honestly may as well have been a personal skill too with those effects, this pretty much shut down all my doubts about this unit being good. The new second boon also feels like a "win-more" investment and not something really worth going out of the way for, just a nice bonus to try and incentivize rolling these new units.

But yeah, very easy pass for me. It's very funny that they managed to add all 4 of the Wolfguard and only two of them are even on the banner, and one of the two is the demote. I always wondered how they'd handle the Wolfguard, fully expecting the Dawn Brigade to get this same treatment if we even get them next Tellius banner. And my expectations of them coming are not particularly high.

The Wolfguard may be a team of 4, but Wolf and Roshea are the two with the clear standout traits to them, Roshea being the only defector in Mystery, and Wolf being Hardin's second-in-command and the last to finally be persuaded of the four in New Mystery. As such those two are put on the banner proper. Sedgar and Vyland practically are also-rans, and are treated as such in this, with Sedgar being a GHB, and Vyland being the insta-demote.

The three Dawn Brigade boys at least have more going for them, with more character, PRF weapons, and more distinct class differences. At the very least I'd expect them to have their weapons, regardless of them being initially being a localization insert. Laura can fulfill the insta-demote slot, and Aran can be the GHB candidate. Since this banner seems to standardize how these banner layouts are going to play out, I'd expect all five at once like this, and Volug, Fiona, and Meg can come along later as seasonals potentially.

This is also a sparkable far save banner, which has some appeal.

I'd say the Dawn Brigade is somewhat more likely now given this banner going out on the Wolfguard. Additionally, some banners we had this book had some theme to it:

- Sacred Stones: Grado theme
- Thracia 776: No theme. But if they do a theme next time, I expect it to be Tahra-related with Linoan.
- Genealogy: Silesse theme with Lex & Azelle
- Three Houses: No theme either other than adding in popular characters
- Blazing Blade: Reglay theme with Farina
- Fallen is Fallen
- SoV: No theme either but then again, they were short on units to begin with.
- Fates: Conquest with Orochi
- CYL is CYL
- Three Houses Part 2: Ashen Wolves
- Mystery: Wolfguard

Even some Book IV banners had some themes going like Bern and Chapters 9 - 10 of Awakening.

I don't necessarily think Dawn Brigade is unlikely to ever get in so much as I think that Tellius has other themes/characters that are currently more likely, should have clarified better. I actually think the Wolfguard highlight this too, if the entire Wolfguard is coming in solely based on Wolf being the highest voted Archanea character on the list then we're possibly looking at another PoR themed Tellius banner next thanks to Boyd.

There's a couple easy groups to theme it with too, Boyd/Rolf is easy and Rolf ties into Marcia and Volke for another general early PoR characters theme. Volke's a very clear addition to the group of prf weapons that demand Dragonflower investments as well and he's not too far behind Boyd. Point is I think aside from a random Edward sneaking in I don't think the Dawn Brigade is coming soon, but whenever we do get them we definitely have the answer to how they address the fact that there's so many guys with middling/low popularity in that group. If they can get the whole Wolfguard in on one banner they can add any group, just add broken alt for popular OC.

Looks like Android users have been hit with a nasty downtime since 7 hours ago or so. Basically all Nintendo mobile games are down.

Not a good time for when two events (GC and TT+) are at their last day.

Thankfully it came back about 2 hours ago so if anyone wants to rush to get those events in, now's your chance

Well at least the shop reset will have another Forma to get. And I'm one Celestial Stone away from getting it. Weird that they increased the amount of Dragonflowers you can get to 20 but hopefully that means they will add more sparking in banners like seasonals and legendary banners for a change.

I mean within a year there's 12 New Hero banners and about 6 or 7 legendary remixes, plus there was a that christmas banner we could spark last year. And also, any stones you didnt use on the shop before stil lcarry over. Which is probably the most relevant part to more options so you 're not just sitting on Stones waiting for the souls to come in.
Oh and I forgot about the New Hero reruns we get every other months so that's another what 6 or so?

I don't think we'll see a sharp increase, sadly.

This next refresh will happen in May so I can definitely see them expand Celestial Stone opportunities somewhat. I'm not holding my breath though, I haven't really used my stones much anyway. I've sparked 6 times total and only redeemed stones twice for infantry flowers because it's the only thing worth much for me now among the options. Trait fruits could be valuable in theory but I have nearly 700 fruit so I clearly don't need more. Adding coins and stones to the options is definitely not changing that, that's probably like the worst value possible to use a stone on.
