This next New Heroes banner is up for three weeks instead of the typical two.
Perhaps a long requested character is coming up, mentioning no
Even if the tickets aren't there in the future, I would like it if banners still happened. It does feel like another way to get more units out there for people to pull on just like (new) GHBs & Tempests.One day I will finally pull Elincia, but today is not that day. Nothing much from my tickets except a Tethys merge so she's +6 now, will be +7 with the limited manuals so at this rate she'll be +10 before Nanna (who is still only +8).
I feel like it would be a decent idea to have themed banners like these for future iterations of this mode even without tickets, but the banners specifying "debut" kinda seals the fact that this is all just a special occasion for debuting the new mode. Along with the Grand Hero Party which I'm guessing is a special case just to catch up on the rerun schedule since that's gotten insanely long (did you realize it took 9 months instead of the normal 5-6 for Kempf to get his regular scheduled rerun?). That said, this really feels like too much fanfare for how...un-interactive this mode actually is? Like the 100 trait fruits and free summons are nice and all, but there's really not much to this mode. I'm not complaining about free stuff though, especially the fruits.
Call me desperate and maybe I'm just grasping at straws, but I really do feel like the extra fanfare with these banners is just a convenient way to bait Tellius fans like me who have been saving for a Tellius banner for over a year now, right before they announce the long-awaited Tellius/Jill banner. We even got the relevant Tellius BHB coming later this month too, which has actually been a trend for all of Book 4 (except CYL) apparently!
Not really. Crafty Fighter has a Guard effect to keep the user alive longer from Specials with 25% HP longer. Vengeful Fighter allows Specials like Bonfire to trigger on the second hit but lasts halfway through the HP. One's more defensive, the other is more offensive.and a new Fighter skill that basically powercreeps Vengeful Fighter.
Which also means you have to find a new joke, since this one has now officially run its course.
