Pull for Gatekeeper or Brave Eirika

Gatekeeper and Brave Eirika Fire Emblem Heroes FEH

The long-awaited Gatekeeper is a great hero to put on your Aether Raids defense maps! Not only does he buff up your allies, but he also gains access to lots of powerful effects if he is within 2 spaces of an allied structure. This means that these effects will almost always be activated on AR-D.

His B skill, named Detailed Report, restricts enemy movement and warping around Gatekeeper. This limits the strategy of the enemy raiders that are up against GK!

On the other hand, Brave Eirika is the better option if you aren't interested in playing Aether Raids competitively. She specializes in player phase offense as she can take out a wide range of foes.

Pull for Brave Edelgard!

Edelgard Avatar Fire Emblem Heroes FEH 2021

Brave Edelgard, in our opinion, is the best pick in this banner. Even though she is an armored unit, her weapon grants her so much mobility that she does not feel like one. Her exclusive skill grants her guaranteed follow-up attacks and damage reduction against enemies. Access to Distant Ward makes her very strong against magic units too. All these make her an all-around unit that is strong on both offensive and defensive ends.

Free 5 Star Summon Guidelines

List Tips and Guidelines

  • Pull from the Free 5★ Summon after you have pulled from the normal banner. That way, you are able to get what you still need from the things the gacha system did not provide you with.
  • If you are Rerolling, pull from the Free 5★ Summon after you have Rerolled. This way, you save time as pulls from Free Summons are always guaranteed.
  • All units acquired from Free 5★ Summons will always have neutral IVs. This can be changed through the use of Trait Fruits.
  • Once you enter the Free Summoning Session, you cannot go back until you have chosen a character.
  • Once Summoned, you cannot re-select a hero.
  • You can only get one Free hero from each banner.

These tips and guidelines make your first few pulling sessions worth it. Most of the time, getting multiple Brave heroes instead of multiple copies of 1 Brave hero is better for a starting player so we urge people to pull first from the non-guaranteed sessions before the guaranteed session.

Choose a Favorite Brave Hero

Chibi Legendary Dimitri.png

Choose Your Legends (CYL) Banners are held every mid-year, and players are gifted one of the 4 heroes of their choice. For new players, they can choose 1 hero from each of the the 2 most recent Brave banners. Since Brave heroes are usually very powerful and can be the cornerstone of a good team, a player should strategically pick their Brave heroes.
