The Best Units From Special Hero Summon (Year 4)

Special Hero Summon 4.pngEnlarge

Pull for a Colorless Unit!

In Special Hero Summon (Year 4), there are many excellent colorless heroes to pull from, such as Ninja Lyn, Pirate Tibarn, Summer Mia, and Bridal Micaiah.

In particular, Ninja Lyn has an amazing weapon which will allow her to hit twice, accelerate her Special trigger, and debuff enemy units, which absolutely devastates enemy teams.

Since there are many other useful colorless units you could end up with as well, this is most likely the safest bet.

Otherwise, pull for Red!

The red side has many good units as well like Masquerade Sigurd, Winter Altina, and Summer Byleth (F).

Masquerade Sigurd is likely the best unit you can pull from red, as he is the only cavalry dancer in the game.

While each pool has some good units to choose from, keep in mind that your free 5 star unit is not guaranteed to be the one you want, so you should look through the units first and see which color has the most units you would be okay with adding to your barracks.
