Fire Emblem Heroes: Where the Peonie Flies

The meme is finally dead and my luck was probably the most insane I've ever had. And that's saying something considering my luck on Ike and Micaiah merges earlier this year were pretty insane too.

1136 orbs were spent total, summoning priority as sniping Greens with Colorless -> Blue -> Red for backup priority, and I generally took Colorless and Blue on circles where I got pitybroken. Final 5* results were: Jill x12, Gatrie x2, Shinon x2, Ilyana x1 (and no 4*, yes really), Helbindi x2, Ranulf x2, Mamori x1, Leanne x1, Silque x1, Kaden x1, Hilda x1, Fallen Lyon x1, Kliff x1, and Loki x1. New pitybreaks for me include Ranulf, Silque, Kaden, Hilda, Fallen Lyon, and Loki.

Further details, yes I actually got 12 Jills. In fact, I actually got all the Jill copies in about 750 orbs which is probably the most insane you'll ever hear. I pulled the last one on a 4 green circle and figured I should just complete the circle for a victory lap, only for another Jill to appear. Those extra 386 orbs or so were entirely from me trying to get a second Shinon (Kliff and Loki pitybreaking me along the way), so that was pretty awful luck. Guess Shinon really doesn't like my Ikes, and yet that total orb count is still insanely good luck for what I set out to do so I still can't complain. If anything it's in character given his PoR recruitment.

Haven't built her yet since today has been busy yet but I can't not post screenshots of the completed build so I'll do that later. At this point I'm going to wait until after the Mythic banner reveal before committing to anything else, since my next goal is another legendary and Leif is a potential target there. I might wait until the October legend first because there's better value there for me, at which point I might come back for some more Shinon merges. Would be nice to get to +4 or +5 now and then save for a rerun to +10 him, but there's still plenty of time.

I'm the one getting all the Ilyanas I guess. 160 orbs gave me seven Ilyanas, along with Gatrie, went ahead and sparked Jill after that. Also got a surprise Dream Corryn, so more Rally+ fodder for Dawn Brigade. Gonna keep trying for Shinon, luckily this banner's here for a while.

Aside fro ma plethora of mode updates, the next update will bring refines for Effir, Sigurd (& Seliph since he has that tyrfing too), Arvis, Rhajat & Saias

Saias's tome is literally the same as Arvis', just blue, which is probably why he's along for the ride.

The longer I have to wait for a Ragnell refine, the better the chances of something silly like Null Follow-Up/Guard with +4 all stats, so they can take their time on that. Resplendent Ike is already a fine as a Speed tank so I can wait.

Considering how much of a dud some of the older legendary heroes are though, I feel like it would be in their best interest to make units like Legendary Ike and Legendary Ryoma more worthwhile to actually pull so I'm sure they'll happen someday. I'm glad this set has 5 refines rather than the usual 4 though. Even if Saias might just get the same as Arvis it's still two unique tomes here and not literally the same weapon, so that's one less space to fill on a future refine batch. I hope this isn't just a one-off scenario and we start seeing slightly larger refine batches (maybe with healer refines too?), but in any case Saias is getting a refine much sooner than expected.

Also another new mode with challengeing scenarios being nerfed again, probably should've expected that one. I think removing the limited attempts is a good thing but I feel like nerfing the stats on top of that is kind of unnecessary? Like this mode was already so reliant on whether or not you have a Harmonic to stay in the high tiers but I feel like one or the other would've been fine as a change.

Also I know I never actually posted the final build I settled on for Jill but that's because I'm still waiting to see if I'm actually investing in Leif this month because I want to give Heavy Blade 4 otherwise, and both of them would want it. Short of that though, this nearly two year wait is finally over and done with, and with that I have my new highest scoring unit for arena modes.

Legendary Refines definitely feel in the cards at some point, even if they keep avoiding DC units. The early legends in particular really need some boosts. Or a complete reworking in the case of Legendary Lyn.

I think this will be a one-off scenario specifically because they're going to get the same refine. They have done this before, with the whitewings & robins


The whitewings all have the same refine (despite different weapons), female robin got a green version of male robin's tome and both got the same refine.

if it had been literally any other unit other than Saias, I'd be willing to believe that we'd be getting 5 from now on.

They should give Saias something that fits with his BS Leadership stars that make some Thracia maps suck.

Divine Tyrfing will, at minimum, be upscaled to match Gilt Goblet. AKA, Sigurd will get reduction off of AoEs too.

Seliph is only getting this refine because he was given Divine Tyrfing ages ago, so odds are good the refine itself will focus on improving on Sigurd's Crusader Ward. There might be some Urvan-esque shenanigans in store for him, though unfortunately more restricted since Crusader Ward only applies on ranged attackers, unless the refine itself copies Crusader Ward but puts a "If Foe's Range = 1" qualifier on it to cover both ranges.

Lewd Dream girl is our Peony answer to Astra season.


Red: Plumeria, Lif, and L!Seliph
Blue: L!Ephraim, L!Lucina, and Lilith
Green Tome Special: Yune, Brave Micaiah, and L!Celica
Colorless: L!Leif, Duma, and Julian

Red is stacked, blue is decent, green is stacked, and colorless is above-average.

By the way, in case you didn't notice, the Sacred Stones MS enemy lineup for today is...weird.

praise the lord we finally

finally

have an astra unit AND she's a dancer.


I am 100% convicned when she was conceived she was the Dark dancer, though. Her AOE feels more at home on Defense than Offense. But hey, I'm not complaining!

I'd say Colorless is pretty good, Julian might not be amazing but he's in the Say'ri tier where he has amazing fodder.

Pretty good Mythic banner, and pretty much what people were expecting here. As crazy as it is to skip a dancer mythic, I'm actually doing fine on Astra as is so I'm going to skip this for now and wait for next month's legend, might be interested on future reruns though. If Seliph was literally anything other than Earth I might have actually considered sniping reds though because this a good banner otherwise. Guess I'm just waiting for next month's legendary though, sharing with Chrom or Edelgard is better for pure arena value anyway.

With that I decided to roll for +5 merges on Shinon before leaving the Tellius banner, 878 orbs for that which is below average luck but still not the worst, still can't even complain considering I was quite literally 1st percentile for Jill. Pulled 2 Gatrie and 4 Ilyana as well (pitybreaks: Eleonora x2, Brave Dimitri, Brave Camilla, Julian, Nina) so 2014 orbs spent total on this banner is giving me a +10 Jill, +5 Shinon, +3 Gatrie, and +4 Ilyana. Definitely worth it in the end.
