Answering the age-old question of “How many Lyn variants is too many?” with “More than four,” a new trailer for Fire Emblem Heroes has revealed the game’s next Legendary Hero — yet another version of Lyn from Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade, attired in her Blade Lord outfit.

Marking FEH’s fifth variant of everybody’s favorite green-haired Sacaean (following her Normal, Bride, Brave, and Valentine’s versions) this new Lyn is the first Green-colored Bow user in the game, wielding the Swift Mulagir (Grants Res+3; provides Atk & Spd +5 if nearby allies outnumber nearby foes) and coming with the unique A skill Laws of Sacae (Grants +4 to all stats if attacked and nearby allies outnumber nearby foes). She seems to be the opposite of Legendary Ephraim, performing well when surrounded by friends — reflecting Lyn’s strong ties of kinship with her comrades.


In addition, the upcoming Legendary Hero event features the usual assortment of 8% chances to snag 5-star exclusives. There are three units per color, as always: Red (Legendary Ike, Cavalry Eirika, Fallen Celica), Blue (Legendary Ephraim, Micaiah, Performing Arts Shigure), Green (Legendary Lyn, Performing Arts Inigo, and Halloween Henry), and Colorless (F!Grima, Genny, Halloween Jakob). The banner begins square at the beginning of May and lasts for a week, so roll for your favorites while you can!

There’s also an upcoming celebration of Golden Week (a string of Japanese holidays) that starts tonight! This includes log in bonuses, reward maps, quests, EXP and SP boosts, and a special time offer of Kaze as a Grand Conquest reward. So be sure not to miss out on this opportunity for orbs and other resources!
