  1. It has come to my attention that the problem with Lachesis is not her voice, but her art. At least, that's the consensus among the FE community and the sub-reddits. My apologies; I did not mean to misinform you all.
  2. In this list, I’ve taken it upon myself to rank, in no particular order, 20 of the best, and 10 of the worst voice acting performances/choices for previously voiceless characters making their English voiced debut in Fire Emblem Heroes. Some ground rules for this list: - No characters who have appeared with an English voice in any other game. - Seasonal units do not count. - No voice actor may appear more than once. - A voice simply being “good” or “bad” won’t cut it. There needs to be something about the voice and how it compares to the quality of work the actor is known for. A certain degree of effort, or lack thereof, is required. - If a character from the Tellius games has a different actor than they did back in their original games, they may be included. - This is based on opinion, so you are more than welcome to disagree with me. BEST: 1. Sigurd - Grant George: George’s iconic voice and unique intonations made him the absolute perfect choice for Sigurd. He sounds noble and regal, just like he should. 2. Hector - Patrick Seitz: One of my personal favorites, FE voice director Patrick Seitz nails anything he casts himself into. Hector is no exception. 3. Jeorge - Mick Wingert: This one was a toss-up between Jeorge and Arden, but Jeorge took it due to having more consistency. Clearly Wingert has no problems adapting his incredible range. 4. Michalis - David Vincent: The good ol’ voice of Robin proves he can do more as Michalis. He truly sounds villainous in every line he has, and that’s a good thing for a warrior of his caliber. 5. Cain - Taliesin Jaffe (credited: T. Axelrod): Hearing Jaffe’s energy come out of Cain is a true joy. It reminds me of Owain/Odin, in a way, and that’s never a bad thing. Cain is easily one of my very favorites. 6. Eirika - Kira Buckland: Surpassing her brother in the VA department, Eirika’s voice is widely considered to be one of the very best the game has to offer. Buckland’s voice oozes with kindness and respect, which couldn’t be more fitting for Eirika. 7. Seliph - Christian La Monte: I honestly have no idea who Christian La Monte is, but I cannot deny his skill as a voice actor. Seliph and Roderick’s voices sound like freshly-opened butter, and I must give him the credit he deserves. 8. Julia - Cassandra Lee Morris: Seliph’s younger half-sister also proves to have a respectable voice. She sounds quiet and serene, but clear and with conviction, just as I would expect from the lady who voiced Morgana. 9. Black Knight - Robert Clotworthy: My favorite character in the game has been blessed with divine armor, a holy sword, and a god-like voice. Though I haven’t heard much of Clotworthy’s work, personally, I cannot deny I would be willing to hear more after this exemplary performance. 10. Maria - Wendee Lee: Despite having voiced Lyn three different times, I still hold true to the belief that FE Heroes’ Director Wendee Lee’s best voice is Maria. She captures her pure-hearted innocence and youthful energy so well. 11. Arvis - Xander Mobus: The award for my personal favorite voice in the whole game goes to Mobus’ Arvis. It’s just amazing in every way. Who knew the Smash Bros. Announcer could sound so evil? 12. Klein - Edward Bosco: Speaking of Xander Mobus, his best friend Edward Bosco did a fantastic job as Klein, perfectly capturing his respectful mannerisms and noble characteristics. 13. Hawkeye - Jamieson Price (credited: Taylor Henry): Smooth and serene at one moment, powerful and angry the next, Price’s range is explored entirely through one character as Hawkeye proves the breadth of his personality. 14. Nino - Sarah Blandy: Though the same could be said for Fae and Midori, I adored the childlike, youthful energy found in Blandy’s voice as Nino. It’s no surprise that her “I’ll do my best!” has won the hearts of so many players. 15. Lucius - Michael Sinterniklaas: Capturing a feminine disposition is no easy feat, but Sinterniklaas did so without any problem. I would consider his best role to be Lucius over Takumi and Niles, without a doubt. 16. Ninian - Brianna Knickerbocker: Gentle and caring, just like Sakura. But still different and unique enough to be easily identified with the icy dragon girl. Knickerbocker’s role as Ninian is a treat for the ears. 17. Priscilla - Marcella Lentz-Pope: Contrary to her prior roles as the determined Corrin and Scarlet, Lentz-Pope now finds herself voicing the serene Eturian noble Priscilla. Fortunately, she nails it. 18. Valter - Imari Williams: It’s weird to think that the guy who voiced the gentle Benny in Fates now voices the crazed Moonstone general Valter. Regardless, he does so very well, perfectly capturing his bloodlust and crazed obsession with battle. 19. Lute - Brina Palencia: Moreso than her performance as Ayra, Palencia’s role as Lute was spot-on. She sounds deadpan, confident, and somewhat narcissistic, which fits her character perfectly. 20. Dorcas - Kirk Thornton (uncredited): I am very saddened that Thornton doesn’t get to be properly credited for his fantastic performance as Dorcas. His lines referring the old 2003 commercial are too hilarious to ignore, and his tone in general is exactly as I would expect from the depressed family man. WORST: 1. Lachesis - Cristina Valenzuela: This one is one of my least favorites, personally. While Valenzuela has had many good roles in the FE series, like Athena and Tatiana, her role as Lachesis is definitely not one of them. 2. Karel - Bryce Papenbrook: Despite his fantastic performance as Oscar, Papenbrook has found himself knocked down a peg when it comes to Karel. I wouldn’t fault him on it, though; it was most likely just a bad casting choice. 3. Nephenee - Julie Ann Taylor: I like Taylor’s roles as much as the next guy, but her role as Nephenee could’ve used some work. She lacked her shy presence, and her accent didn’t feel natural. 4. Eliwood - Yuri Lowenthal: He sounds exactly like Marth; there was no discernable difference to me whatsoever. Even Merric sounded more distinct. 5. Lilina - Julie Kwieler: Lilina to me is one of the very worst. Her insanely high-pitched, squeaky voice wouldn’t sound good on anybody, much nonetheless on Hector’s adorable daughter. 6. Ephraim - Greg Chun: Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Chun’s voice. His performance as Lukas still makes my heart melt. But Ephraim didn’t feel quite right, at least to me. 7. Rebecca - Hunter Mackenzie Austin: This one felt like a loss of potential more than anything else. While not necessarily bad, I do wish she had a little more personality, especially for a girl described as “helpful and bright”. 8. Gwendolyn - Cherami Leigh: Gwendolyn sounds exactly like Caeda, and without any of the personality to go with it. This caused Gwendolyn to become generally forgettable, which should never be said for an FE character that made it into Heroes. 9. Mist - Sarah Williams: After the misery we were put through listening to Mist’s awful voice in the Tellius games, I was hoping for something better. Unfortunately, Williams’ voice for Mist was not a good replacement, making her sound squeaky and too young. 10. Gordin - Max Mittelman: I simply didn’t feel as though Mittelman’s voice was a good fit. It often sounded like an awkward blend of Gray and Kaden, and didn’t quite sit right with me. Well, that’s my list, and the explanations behind them. I worked hard on it, so I’m eager to hear what you all think. Any suggestions or comments are very much appreciated. Thanks for reading! - KoolioKenneth
  3. Introduction - Radiant Dawn is one of my all-time favorite games in the Fire Emblem series, and it pains me to see that it has not received any sort of representation in Heroes. As such, I came up with my own ideas for what units would be included in a Radiant Dawn-themed banner, Grand Hero Battle, and Tempest Trial. I am open to responses, so please tell me what you think! - KoolioKenneth (Note: I originally posted this as a separate thread, so please ignore that one if you see it. This is the fully updated version.) Summoning Focus - Liberation of Dawn banner (Red: Pelleas / Blue: Micaiah / Green: Kurthnaga / Colorless: Sothe) Grand Hero Battle - Mad King Ashnard (Reward: Ashnard) Tempest Trial - War-Torn Tellius (Reward: Sephiran) Micaiah - “Priestess of Dawn” Blurb - “Founder of the Dawn Brigade, once known as the Silver-Haired Maiden. Quiet and serene, she does not express herself well, but loves her friends and country with all her heart.” Summary - Blue tome infantry appearing in the Liberation of Dawn Summoning Focus. HP - 36 ATK - 32 SPD - 32 DEF - 14 RES - 36 Total BST - 150 Weapon - Rexaura: Blue tome. 14 Mt. DEF +3. Comes with Breath of Life. Grants adjacent allies RES +6 at start of Player Phase. Assist - Branded Sacrifice: Lose 10 HP, but grant 20 HP to any adjacent ally. Special - A-slot - B-slot - Renewal C-slot - SPD/RES Ploy Desired VA - Erika Harlacher Explanation - Micaiah is obviously the highlight unit of the banner, but I admittedly had a bit of trouble designing her. The most difficult part of Micaiah’s potential as a unit in Heroes is whether or not she would be made into a mage unit (like Celica) or be made into a staff unit to highlight the recent buffs that staves got in the latest update. I decided to go with Blue tome so that she wouldn’t share colorless with Sothe in the banner, saving the staff for Sephiran. She wields RD’s most powerful Light Magic, Rexaura (a member of the Aura family) which serves to bridge the gap between Linde and Delthea’s weapons. Micaiah is made with her RD playstyle in mind, working off of her high ATK and SPD alongside extremely low physical frailty. However, I intentionally made her ATK and SPD not quite high enough to be classed alongside other glass cannon blue mages like Linde, Delthea, and Lute, instead relying on her unique C-skill, SPD/RES Ploy, to get her the stat margin she needs. Her other unique skill is her Assist, Branded Sacrifice. It serves as a reference to what made Micaiah so special at the start of RD, in which she could offer her own HP to another party member. This version of the skill is much more powerful, allowing her to run as a healer very well. **Alternate Weapon - Thani: Staff. 16 Mt. Comes with Wrathful Staff. Ignores bonuses on cavalry/armored units.** Sothe - “Daein’s Liberator” Blurb - “A member of the Dawn Brigade who was raised in the slums of Daein by Micaiah. After fighting alongside Ike in the Mad King’s War, he swore to protect Micaiah at all costs.” Summary - Dagger infantry appearing in the Liberation of Dawn Summoning Focus. HP - 36 ATK - 36 SPD - 38 DEF - 20 RES - 20 Total BST - 150 Weapon - Baselard: Dagger. 10 Mt. SPD -2. Strike twice when attacking. Inflict DEF/RES -7. Assist - Swap Special - Whisper: Cooldown count: 4. If unit’s DMG - foe’s HP > 1, automatically leaves one HP remaining. A-slot - Swift Sparrow B-slot - Brigade’s Bearing: Grants Hardy Bearing to this unit and any adjacent ally. C-slot - Desired VA - Kenneth B. Foster Explanation - Sothe effectively serves as Heroes’ first ever wielder of a brave dagger, taking the form of the insanely powerful Baselard weapon from RD. His existence is meant to beat out units like Brave Lyn and Bridelia with the highest offensive BST in the game and restore the overall strength of dagger units. His unique special, Whisper, is taken right out of Radiant Dawn, making it great at whittling down tanky units like Arden. His other unique skill is a B-slot support skill that allows him to forego Desperation and Vantage in exchange for nullifying it against his enemies, along with granting his allies the same benefit. When positioned properly, Sothe can be a great support unit in addition to offense. Kurthnaga - “Scion of Dragons” Blurb - “The kind-hearted son of Dheginsea, King of the Dragon nation of Goldoa. He left his home to discover the whereabouts of his lost siblings, eventually joining Micaiah.” Summary - Green dragonstone infantry appearing in the Liberation of Dawn Summoning Focus. HP - 44 ATK - 30 SPD - 20 DEF - 35 RES - 35 Total BST - 164 Weapon - Dark Breath: Green Dragonstone. Grants Close DEF Assist - Special - Dragon Fang A-slot - Fury B-slot - C-slot - Hone Dragons Desired VA - Robbie Daymond Explanation - Kurthnaga serves as the first green dragon unit to enter the game since launch, joining Fae as the only ones in the whole game. His statline grants him the title of highest defensive BST, barely beating out Sheena. When compounded with his weapon, he becomes the ultimate wall to both physical attacks and magic. He also comes with Hone Dragons to accompany Ninian’s Fortify Dragons, completing the set. Pelleas - “Orphaned Prince” Blurb - “The heir-apparent to the throne of Daein on the grounds of being Ashnard’s long-lost son. Timid and gentle, he often feels conflicted about running his country.” Summary - Red tome infantry appearing in the Liberation of Dawn Summoning Focus. HP - 40 ATK - 30 SPD - 36 DEF - 24 RES - 20 Total BST - 150 Weapon - Balberith: Red tome. Mt 14. ATK +3. Grants weapon triangle advantage VS colorless. Assist - Special - Flare: Cooldown count: 4. Reduces enemy RES by 80% and heals half damage. A-slot - Triangle Adept B-slot - Bowbreaker C-slot - Desired VA - Chris Hackney Explanation - Pelleas is one of the most pivotal characters of Micaiah’s story in RD, serving as the symbol of hope for Daein’s people in such a dark time. But in this game, he is here as a red unit for the banner and adds a new niche. At 36 SPD, he is the fastest Red tome user in exchange for middling ATK. However, this is fixed by his weapon, Balberith. Once owned by his former master Izuka, this dark magic tome granted ATK +3 to the wielder’s stats in RD, and similarly does so here. It works similarly to a raven-tome, and comes alongside TA and Bowbreaker, which makes him fantastic for dealing with offensive bow units like Brave Lyn. His final asset comes in the form of his unique skill Flare, which works like Aether as a single hit. Just be careful with using him, as he has rather low DEF and RES, which leaves him vulnerable to overly offensive units. TL;DR, he is basically a faster, less tanky version of Henry. Ashnard - “The Mad King” Blurb - “The tyrant king of Daein who waged all-out war against Crimea and was defeated by Ike. Maniacal, manipulative, and cruel, he believes that strength rules over all.” Summary - Sword flier appearing in the Mad King Ashnard Grand Hero Battle. HP - 54 ATK - 36 SPD - 18 DEF - 36 RES - 18 Total BST - 162 Weapon - Gurgurant: Sword. Mt 16. Special count -1. Nullifies “effective against” bonuses. Assist - Harsh Command Special - Stun: Cooldown count: 4. Identical to Ignis, and inflicts Gravity on the opponent. A-slot - Daein’s Rampage: Grants Quickened Pulse and DMG +10 when special triggers. B-slot - Quick Riposte C-slot - Flier Formation Desired VA - Darin DePaul Explanation - First off, yes I am aware that Ashnard was not in RD. However, Ashnard has so much potential as a unit that I couldn't help but slide him in. It helps that he has a unique set as a sword-wielding dragon knight, and being a villain, he fits perfectly into a GHB role. Ashnard fills in the role with a sword that Valter and Michalis did with lance and axe: a violent military leader on a wyvern with a love of combat and conquest. In this vein, Ashnard stands out as a sword-wielder by being built similarly to units like Mia and Ayra who get great benefit out of their specials. This is due to his weapon and unique A-slot skill, which can be deadly when used in tandem. Being a GHB unit, I gave him a skill in every slot to help those who want him for SI. With his unique skill set and solid stats, Ashnard makes for a solid choice even among the enormous amount of sword units in the meta. Sephiran - “Begnion’s Minister” Blurb - “The generous and popular Minister of Begnion’s Senate who serves as Sanaki’s consort and mentor. His sudden disappearance threw Begnion into disarray.” Summary - Staff infantry appearing as a reward in the War-Torn Tellius Tempest Trial. HP - 40 ATK - 32 SPD - 22 DEF - 16 RES - 40 Total BST - 150 Weapon - Creiddylad: Staff. Mt. 16. Comes with Wrathful Staff. When attacking, inflicts RES -3 on enemies adjacent to the target. Assist - Goddess Staff: Heals 15 HP to a single ally, and 5 HP to all other allies and self. Special - Corona: Cooldown count: 3. Reduces enemy RES by 80%. Faster version of Glacies. A-slot - Warding Stance B-slot - C-slot - ATK Ploy Desired VA - Johnny Yong Bosch Explanation - Sephiran joins Effie, Mia, and Arden as a unit with a key stat that breaks into the 40’s, sporting the highest natural RES in the game by far. This fits him into a niche with Warding Stance, allowing him to be the ultimate magic tank, along with weakening enemies with ATK Ploy. His weapon and assist are both references to the final chapters to RD, in which he used both as character-unique weapons. Creiddylad also comes with a shrunken-down version of RES Smoke, which gives him some utility on offense, too. But where he really shines is his unique skill Corona, which allows him to activate Glacies with a lower cooldown count. Thank you so much for reading! Now, could I have some of your thoughts?
  4. Sorry, I didn't know there was a thread for created heroes. I haven't used Serenes in a while. I'll go post it there, instead. And I wasn't aware that flying units could not learn Wrath. I'll replace it with Quick Riposte. As much as I love Ike, I wasn't comfortable with including another version of him into the game while other characters like Marth are still left with one variant. Also, yes I am aware that Ashnard wasn't in RD, but I also see him as one of the best potential villain units out of the entire Tellius series, making him perfect for a GHB. I love Tauroneo, but he still feel significant enough in RD's story to warrant being put into the game. If any lance armor was to be in the game, it should be Gatrie. And yes, I agree that Thani would be a better choice, hence why I included it as an alternate weapon in the explanation for Micaiah. But it can only work to an extent: granting bonus damage against two different weapon types would be a little TOO powerful. Oh, and Flare isn't as strong as Aether; it only hits once, and it cannot be inherited. I feel you, bro. Tibarn was my man in RD. And I too would like to see a Thracia banner.

Assist - Branded Sacrifice: Lose 10 HP, but fully heal any injured ally. Micaiah CAN die from this. Special - A-slot - B-slot - Renewal C-slot - SPD/RES Ploy Desired VA - Erika Harlacher Explanation - Micaiah is obviously the highlight unit of the banner, but I admittedly had a bit of trouble designing her.

This version of the skill is much more powerful, allowing her to run as a healer very well...almost too well. The skill is risky, since it does not have an overflow cap, and will kill Micaiah if the player overuses it. The player must be patient and rely on Renewal to keep her alive. Alternate Weapon - Thani: Staff. 16 Mt. Comes with Wrathful Staff. Ignores bonuses on cavalry/armored units. Sothe - “Daein’s Liberator” Blurb - “A member of the Dawn Brigade who was raised in the slums of Daein by Micaiah.

  6. Honestly, I wish IV's didn't exist. They only make the game's meta worse, in my opinion. I just spend all of my orb trying to get a better Ike after the game dropped an - ATK on me, and I didn't get crap. I've wanted to move on so badly, but I just can't feel satisfied with a bad IV, so I wish they didn't exist at all.
  7. OK, this game hates me. Ever since the Hero Fest banner came out, I've been struggling to summon Ike, my all-time favorite FE character that never showed up for me back when he debuted. Despite my enormous orb stockpile I'd been saving up just for this banner, I still ended up spending upwards of about $40 trying to summon him. After many failed attempts, I finally managed to get him. Immediately afterward, I used my last remaining orbs on a blue and ended up getting Ninian, too. Needless to say, I was thrilled. ...And then I checked their IV's. Ike is -ATK. Ninian is -SPD. THOSE ARE THEIR BEST STATS. So basically, the game decided to give me two really awesome high-tier characters, and then proceeded to shove a giant middle finger right in my face by giving them the exact bane IV's they needed to NOT get, rendering them useless. Words cannot describe how salty I am right now. Seriously, I think I'm gonna cry.
  8. I won't be watching the supports video due to spoilers, but I would like to say that the full English voice cast has been leaked on Imgur. For those of you who are wanting to match the characters to their VA's, here is a fully embedded copy of the VA screenshots from the credits.
  9. I just wanted to say that I checked out your Heroes spreadsheet, and WOW. I really admire your tremendous dedication to this game. Well done, sir. (Though I am admittedly jealous of your +3 Ryoma when I haven't even gotten a single Ryoma).
  10. As a Robin player, I was super worried with how the Robin vs Leo round would play out, what with how successful Leo was on the Fates popularity poll, so I'm very relieved to see that Robin won. However this pits him against the girl he tied with on the Awakening popularity poll, and it's bringing back bad memories of how my already-married MU was stalked so mercilessly. Regardless, I truly hope that my fellow Robin fans stand with me on tipping the scales of this Voting Gauntlet. And yes, I did just make that pun.
  11. Geez, this thread is ANCIENT. I can't believe someone decided to pick it back up. Well, thanks for that, I suppose.
  12. I'd like to thank everybody for taking the time to respond to this thread. I think I understand it all a little better now. Though I guess it is kind of a shame, when you think about it. While I am excited for the story campaign, I highly doubt it will beat The Future Past or Heirs of Fate, which were both amazing. I guess only time will tell.
  13. I recently watched the DLC trailer on the NoA website, and everything seemed to be as expected. Bonus campaign maps, money-grind and EXP-grind maps, and DLC class maps alongside free gear. Nothing seemed to be much different from what Awakening and Fates had. But when I checked the Like-Dislike bar, people seemed to be pretty upset, and I don't understand why. Could someone please explain? Thank you.
  14. Even though I have a powerful Julia on my team, I'm gonna vote for Robin. He was only a 3-star when I drew him, so I want to see him get some recognition. I'm just praying that Tharja doesn't win. I hate her SO MUCH.
  15. Wow, the voice acting is really good. I still can't put my finger on Kliff's VA, though. Ah, well. We'll know soon enough.
