The OMG FEH announcement number 2: CYL boogaloo.
Prior to the release of FEH in February, people were polled on who is their favorite FE character of all time. This has yielded the Choose Your Legends update. The top eight heroes – four men, four women – are now going to be front and center as we enter September. A little bird told me something about all this, and boy, ain’t it a hoot?
CYL Voting Gauntlet
First, a new voting gauntlet begins. The contenders this time are the eight heroes from the poll. In the men’s division are Hector, Chrom, Ike, and Roy. In the women’s division are Tharja, Lucina, Lyn, and Camilla. I know I voted for Ike in the poll, so I’m delighted to see him make the final cut. The Choose Your Legends voting gauntlet begins August 31.
CYL Summoning Banners
All eight CYL heroes are going up on summoning banners. The men will be on one banner and the women will be on a different banner. If you’re like me and have waited since the first Hero Fest banner to bring home that hunk of burning manliness that is Hector, now is your chance!
Of the eight CYL heroes, the top four are advancing onto a special “Brave Heroes” banner. This banner will offer special variations of the top four heroes:
- Lyn will be FEH’s first mounted archer. Her weapon and unique skill neutralize all buffs on enemy magic users and prevents distant counterattacks from enemies armed with swords, lances, and axes.
- Roy is lighting it up with Blazing Durandal! Not only is Roy also charging in on horseback as well, but he also has Galeforce as his special. When Galeforce activates, it allows the user to move again after attacking. That means Roy can charge across a map, mowing foes down in record speed. That’s why Roy is our boy.
- Lucina is poised to pounce with her lance. Her weapon buffs the speed and attack of all non-magic allies within two spaces and her passive ability additionally enhances the speed of all allies during combat.
- Lastly, the god among men: Ike. Decked out in his Radiant Dawn duds, Ike will come swaggering in with Urvan as his weapon. Urvan, his father’s axe, eats up eighty percent of any second, consecutive strike an enemy gets in on Ike. His passive skill neutralizes buffs on flying and cavalry units.
The Brave Heroes banner goes live August 31.
Quick Hero Battle Game
There’s going to be a website browser game for FEH where you use the Brave Heroes. It’s not entirely clear what this game is, but it looks very simple. However, Feh promised us that you will be able to win orbs by playing, so keep an eye out for this!
But Wait, There’s More!
I know what you’re thinking: “Aw, I’ll never get one of those great Brave Heroes, even with the free first summon!”
That’s where you’re wrong! You see, the first summon on the Brave Heroes banner is indeed free. However, you get to choose which hero you want. Yes, that’s right: you choose one of the four Brave Heroes for free. No tricks. No surprises. Just pick one of the four heroes at five stars for free. No banner has ever done this before!
