Fire Emblem Heroes update version 7.8.0 patch notes
■ Summoning events are being updated
○ Legendary and Mythic Heroes will be added to Legendary & Mythic Hero Remix summoning events.
10 Legendary and Mythic Heroes will appear anew in Legendary & Mythic Hero Remix summoning events. The 10 Legendary and Mythic Heroes being added will not appear in normal Legendary or Mythic Hero summoning events from now on.
See the About Legendary & Mythic Hero Remixes notification for details.
○ Heroes will be added to Weekly Revival summoning events.
A total of 17 additional 5★ Heroes are being added to the pool of Heroes who appear in Weekly Revival summoning events, and they will also appear in the 4★ Special Rate summoning category in other summoning events.
See the Weekly Revival Summoning Focus Schedule notification for details.
○ Hero Check button will be added to the Summoning screen.
This will allow you to check what Focus Heroes are available even after advancing to the Summoning screen or after performing a summon.
Note: The information displayed will be the profile data for Focus Heroes when they reach level 40 (including what assets or flaws they may have and if they have mastered their skills). This information is also available via the Hero Check button in each summoning event under the Summoning tab.
■ New skills are being added for a Legendary and Mythic Hero
Of the Heroes that appear in Legendary & Mythic Hero Remixes, Seliph: Scion of Light and Freyja: Lady of Nightmare are gaining new skills.
○ New skills
・ A Skill
Unit can counterattack regardless of foe’s range. If foe initiates combat, grants Atk+5 to unit during combat.
・ B Skill
Holy War’s End II
At start of combat, if unit’s HP ≥ 25%, inflicts Atk/Def-5 on foe during combat, unit makes guaranteed follow-up attack, and foe cannot make a follow-up attack, and also, if foe initiates combat, unit attacks twice (does
not stack). This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
・ B Skill
Removes the condition to transform. If a skill compares unit’s Spd to a foe’s or ally’s Spd, treats unit’s Spd as if granted +7. If foe initiates combat or number of allies adjacent to unit ≤ 1, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+3 to unit,
inflicts Atk/Spd/Def/Res-3 on foe, and neutralizes effects that inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit during combat, and also, if foe has bonuses, grants bonus to unit’s Atk/Spd/Def/Res and inflicts penalty on foe’s Atk/Spd/Def/Res during combat = current bonus on each of foe’s stats. Calculates each stat bonus independently. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
・ C Skill
Spd Smoke 4
After combat, inflicts Spd-7 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target through their next actions, and grants Spd+6 and【Dodge】to unit for 1 turn.
If unit’s Spd > foe’s Spd, reduces damage from attacks during combat and from area-of-effect Specials (excluding Røkkr area-of-effect Specials) by percentage = difference between stats × 4 (max 40%).
Seliph: Scion of Light and Freyja: Lady of Nightmare will be getting new weapon skills to refine at the same time, so be sure to check the section of this notification labeled “New weapon skills and weapons to refine are being added” in conjunction with this section.
