Just when you thought it was safe to hoard those Orbs, Fire Emblem Heroes has finally released an annual tradition that never ceases to amaze. The Choose Your Legends 5 units are now available in-game for those willing to test their luck, and frankly that should be everyone. Every year these have managed to be characters worth summoning for their unique and powerful effects and gorgeous artwork — that extra polish that only comes with fan demand, as it were. 

Read another way, they know you want them and aren’t afraid to take advantage of that fact. 

 

 

It’s not all random chance at least, as the accompanying Feh Channel will detail. As per usual with these extra special heroes, any and all players will be able to select one of them to acquire no strings attached and absolutely for free. I do suggest seeing who you can pick up with Orbs first, though — after all, who wouldn’t want to get as much as they can during their debut? 

 

 

Marth, Eirika, Marianne, and the proudly present with nothing to report Gatekeeper can all be found in their dedicated summoning focus now. A Forging Bonds event is also currently running, letting players gather up some bonus Orbs every day for the next few, as well as up to four First Summon Tickets. Make ‘em count, and remember that if you summon 40 times you’ll earn the chance to pick up one of these heroes for free as well. 

To recap, that’s a free and extra spiffy hero of your choice just for showing up alongside the chance to earn another free pickup if you summon 40 times — and you can claim that bonus up to four times. If you just so happen to have the ability to summon 160 times total, then congratulations — you’ve earned the privilege of reading all that weapon and skill text these characters come with.
