Legendary Hero time?
Legendary Hero time.
Azura — Vallite Songstress
- Prayer Wheel (Might = 14, Range = 2)
- Grants Speed +3. If Sing or Dance is used, grants bonus to target’s Attack, Speed, Defense and Resistance = The highest bonus on the target for one turn.
- Grey Waves (Range = 1)
- Grants another action to target ally, and if target is an infantry or flying ally, target can move one extra space (that turn only, does not stack).
- Blue Duel Flying (A Skill)
- Grants Health +5. If unit is five-star and level 40 and its stats total < 170, treats unit’s stats as 170 in modes like the Arena.
- Aerobatics (B Skill)
- Unit can move to a space adjacent to any infantry, armored or cavalry ally within two spaces.
- Attack Tactic (C Skill)
- At start of turn, grants Attack +6 to allies within two spaces for one turn. Granted only if number of that ally’s movement type ≤ 2.
At this point I would have expected Intelligent Systems to start pumping out a few Mythic Heroes with the beginning of Book III, but I suppose there’s still a few slots available for legendaries that we needed to fill.
So to help us round out this era of special characters, we have yet another alternate version of Azura. This time based off of her mother, Arete.
While her design alone is a nice reference, she actually stands out even more as a powerful unit to summon. Kind of a power crept version of last year’s New Year’s Azura as a flying dancer, though with a magical tome rather than an axe.
See Legendary Azura’s gimmick, if you hadn’t picked it up already, is that she gives an exceptional amount of buffs through her song after warping to basically any ally easier based on her Aerobatics skill. When she sings for that ally, they gain wide-ranging skill buffs (likely replicated from her Attack Tactic skill) and an extra movement space.
That’s just good. There really isn’t anything else I can say about it.
Honestly if I hadn’t already needlessly wasted a ton of orbs on the Christmas units, I would probably be much more invested in trying to summon Azura here. Especially considering the other units in her banner.
Because also in this Legendary Hero banner are:
- Marth — Hero-King
- Tiki — Beachside Scion
- Flora — Cold as Ice
- Fjorm — Princess of Ice
- Camilla — Tropical Beauty
- Hector — Marquess of Ostia
- Nino — Pale Flower
- Helbindi — Savage Scourge
- Eir — Merciful Death
- Takumi — Prince at Play
- Veronica — Brave Princess
There are a healthy mix of units I don’t have and powerful units I wouldn’t mind having more of in this banner. Marth, Camilla, Nino, Helbindi and Takumi are all missing from my catalog, and I really wouldn’t mind summoning any considering the ones I do have like Hector, Veronica and Tiki are worth having multiple copies of.
So… All things being equal, I don’t have a lot of bad things to say about this banner overall.
If it weren’t for too many other banners happening at the same time (looking at you, New Year’s 2018 banner coming soon), I would spent more time heaving orbs at it.
But hey, at least there’s always Legendary Battle Maps to supply some extra orbs! So maybe I’ll be able to summon her before she disappears.
Alright so I’m going to level with you, I don’t have much of anything to say about the battle map other than “hey free orbs.” I know this entire post feels a bit sparse… And that’s because it kind of is.
Really everything with this Legendary Hero is so good that it’s kind of bland to talk about since I can’t summon too much on the banner. Plus I was hoping to get to it last night until I fell asleep and stayed asleep until very late today because of that sickness I’m still rocking.
So I just wanted to get this out of the way, that way I can focus more on the end-of-year posts coming out the next two days.
Hope you all can forgive me for half-assing this one as a result ❤
And there we have it, another new Legendary Hero!
Always exciting to talk about, especially with that in-depth analysis of the battle map, am I right?
If you had any luck summoning on Azura’s banner, let me know. Also, tell me who you want to see as Legendary Heroes down the line! I know I for one lean away from Fates considering how oversaturated it is in representation so far, though it would be nice to see a Legendary (or even Mythical) Xander to balance out Ryoma’s inclusion earlier.
Guess we’ll just have to see if that happens sometime soon.
