Heroes: Special Heroes (Hostile Springs), Comes January 23

If you caught the teaser pic from the other day, you’ll have probably had a hunch about an incoming hotsprings banner. Fans of the heat and squeaky-clean special summons can rejoice, as we’re about to receive just that, in the Hostile Springs Special Heroes Banner.

We do have a handful of new skills in this flier-centric series, aside from the neat variety of weapons, including Air Orders 3Atk Feint 3 and Spd Opening 3.

Included in the maps, Summoners can spot a flying Colorless dagger Camilla (someone arguably expected by fans, to appear in a Fates-based banner such as this). Camilla: Steamy Secrets will be a reward unit that can be earned in the next Tempest Trials+ event.

Hostile Springs brings with it, a paralogue miniseries (great for collecting Orbs), and the banner will be active from January 23 – February 22, (Midnight – 11:59 pm PT). If you’re interested in going for this batch, best of luck, and remember, there’s another Special Heroes banner coming out in a couple of weeks, so there’s a lot to consider for the month of February!

Heroes: Bound Hero Battle Revival: Leo & Elise + New Power Banner & New Hero Silhouettes!

Another BHB has returned to Fire Emblem Heroes! Bound Hero Battle Revival: Leo & Elise is now available in the Special Maps menu.

This is a great opportunity to beat these maps if you haven’t had a chance to do so previously. For newbies and veterans both, there are also a series of quests for this battle as well! Use Sharena, Fjorm, and Fliers to complete the battle in certain ways to win additional Orbs. You can see further details in the Quests & Missions page.

Bound Hero Battle Revival: Leo & Elise will be available for one week, ending next Sunday, 27 January.

We also have another New Power Banner to celebrate the latest Weapon Refinery additions! You can spend some Orbs for your shot at 5★ focus units for Tailtiu, Deirdre, Julia, and Seliph. Check out our earlier article for details on their new weapon enhancements.

This banner will be available for about two weeks, ending on 1 February.

Finally, Heroes has also given us a sneak peak at the new Special Heroes scheduled to arrive later this week! Check out the silhouettes here:

It’s a bit too soon for Valentines-themed heroes, so we don’t quite know yet what this theme will be. Feh’s says in-game:

These Heroes look like they’re free of tension and ready to battle! …I can’t wait!

The banner is expected to go live on 23 January. As such, we’ll probably get a proper reveal trailer in the next few days. In the meantime, what do you think the theme is and who could these heroes be?

Heroes: Grand Conquests return!

Grand Conquests make a return this week, with the battles being brought to the land of Magvel from The Sacred Stones.

Lyon, the Prince of Grado, Innes, the Prince of Frelia, and Ephraim, the Prince of Renais, will fight for control over the continent over three different battles, each lasting two days. The event is active until the 24th of January, 6:59AM UTC.

I suppose if the map allowed for more armies, we could also have seen L’Arachel and Joshua (spoilers?) representing their own lands, but alas. Maybe in some future update.

Fight to help expand your army’s territory.

The more points you earn, the more Tiers you unlock, giving you rewards such as Orbs, and allowing your scores to influence neighbouring areas of your fights.

The more area score your army has by the end of each battle, the more Feathers (and Arena Medals, but nobody cares about those) everyone within your army will receive at the end.

You also earn Feathers for scoring highly within your own army after each battle, so don’t be afraid to use all your Refill Lances if you feel confident in your abilities, or save them for a future battle.
