Magvel Heroes incoming! The Gerik Mercenaries' Dancer, Tethys (Dagger Infantry), the leader Gerik (Axe Infantry), the Trainee Ewan (Red Tome Infantry), and the duo team of Ephraim and Lyon (Lance Infantry) are coming to Heroes with the 13th and final chapter of Book 3. Along with this, the first trainee of Magvel, Ross (Axe Infantry) will appear as a 3-star/4-star unit.
As I haven't finished Sacred Stones, the only one I'm familiar with is Ross at the moment, so there's that. Anyway, I'm going to hope Book 3 doesn't end terribly like Book 2.
So, I've played through the final chapter, and I have to say, this was a good chapter.
The incorporation of Together We Ride and Veronica's battle theme - which I'm now also dubbing it as the Summoner's theme - really made me like this. Honestly, I hope this has a movie like with Cohort of the Dead - I'd love for Ray, Barbara, Wendee and Xanthe to voice it.
EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot about the new boss theme used this chapter. It kinda caught me by surprise there.
I'll write a full thoughts on Book 3 soon.
First of all, the original premise was sick. Like, yeah, I really liked the premise. The opening chapters were very promising, and the development given to Alphonse really made me like him more - and I really only levelled up the Askr Trio to 5* Lv 40 for the hell of it. Then again, I can't even remember WHY I levelled them up. Huh.
Anyway, the 13 chapters & 5 maps per chapter actually hurt this story a little. While Lif's character was really well done, characters like Eir, Thrasir, and even Hel herself don't have much spotlight. Oh yeah, neither did Loki, but we got more of her story from Rokkr Sieges and Hall of Forms than any Book. After Lif's reveal and that bit about his motivations, Thrasir just felt tacked on in her chapter. And the reveal about Eir being royalty to a dragon of life (maybe Askr, maybe another dragon) was interesting, but felt a little tacked on - especially if they won't explore that in a future Xenologue or in Book 4.
That said, Hel as a villain is miles better than Surtr. Surtr was just... eh. Heck, I don't think any map in Book 3 had a 0 damage seal in play. At all. It certainly helped with maps and not having to try and survive. As I said before, the way Hel went at the end was really freaking satisfying.
Gotta be honest, I forgot about Veronica's voice work being like that, but... again, this was pretty good. Guess the Breidablik's black and gold, now. Unless that's the other world's Breidablik... no idea.
Well, Book 4 will probably be announced next month in a FEH channel. Honestly hoping for some focus on Sharena - considering the development Alfonse got. Unfortunately, I doubt Anna will get anything, since she continues getting the shaft. That's probably what happens when you have multiple identical sisters who are all shifty merchants.
FE6 heroes incoming! The dancer Larum (Dagger Infantry); Perceval (Lance Cavalier); Echidna (Axe Infantry); and Igrene (Red Bow Infantry) will be coming to Heroes alongside a new Paralogue chapter that focuses on Thorr, Loki, Lif and Thrasir. Chad (Dagger Infantry) will be available as a 3 star/4 star non focus unit, and Brunnya (Probably a Tome unit of some kind) will be available through Tempest Trials.
Wow... I did not expect this banner... because I know none of these characters. Guess this is a skip for me.
