Heroes: Wings of Fate Summoning Focus!

Three new heroes have arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Wings of Fate Summoning Focus for your chance at Kinshi Knight Hinoka, Shigure, and Female Kana. Check out our earlier article for a preview trailer and look at their skills.

These heroes also appear in a new story chapter. Book II, Chapter 8: Blade of Frost continues the plot after the last heartbreaking update. Complete all the maps and the quests to earn up to 20 Orbs! You can find the quest breakdown below.

Additionally, we also get a new Log-In Bonus to celebrate the new heroes! All players will get an extra 13 Orbs just for logging in over the next ten days.

The Wings of Fate Summoning Focus will be around for a little over two weeks, ending on 10 May at 6:59am UTC. According to the most recent event calendar, we’ll be getting another batch of regular new heroes that day as a replacement.

Cipher: Spring 2018 Livestream Date & Eliwood ST Art!

More S13 news will be arriving shortly for Fire Emblem Cipher! Earlier today, the @fecipher twitter account announced the date for the upcoming Spring 2018 Livestream.

The livestream will air on 26 May, a little over a month before S13’s release on 28 June. Ryota Kawade and Young will be our hosts, as usual, with Eri Suzuki returning as a guest. Eri is a rather prolific Japanese voice actress for Fire Emblem, playing the roles of Soleil (Fates), Delthea (Echoes), and even Cipher’s own Ema (Echoes).

As usual for seasonal livestreams, we can expect to see a wide variety of new cards for S13. We’re also hoping for some future Cipher news as well. Most notably, S14 is still completely unknown aside from its “keyword”: 無限 (mugen, the Japanese word for infinity). We may also hear about some upcoming events.

If you’d like to watch along, you can find a link to the stream on the official site. As usual, it will air a 8pm JST, which is 11am UTC.

Additionally, the Cipher twitter earlier this week also revealed some new artwork for Eliwood! This piece of art, drawn by Blazing Sword‘s official artist Sachiko Wada, will be featured in S13’s associated ST Deck. This deck, the first one released since S9 last year, will feature cards and characters from FE7. Likely, Eliwood will be the starring lord.

With this information, likely we’ll start getting daily reveals the week of, or the week before, the stream. We may also continue to get additional tidbits here and there, like Eliwood’s art, before then. Stay tuned for further details!

Heroes: Banner for Heroes with Combat Boosts!

It’s time for another skill-based banner in Fire Emblem Heroes! Let’s take a quick look at the new Heroes with Combat Boosts banner.

This banner contains 5★ focus units for Ayra, Sonya, and Brave Lyn. Each of these heroes comes with a skill that boosts stats when the user initiates combat, either Swift Sparrow or Mirror Strike. They’re also powerful allies in their own right, so either add them to your team, or pass their skills on!

The Heroes with Combat Boosts banner will be around for over a week, ending on 3 May.

In the meantime, best of luck battling your way through the Tempest Trials+! Don’t forget, today also gives us a new Blessed Garden map, and yesterday a new Rival Domains began as well.

Heroes: Tempest Trials+: Thunder’s Fist Now Live!

Another Tempest has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Ready your units and prepare to tackle Tempest Trials+: Thunder’s Fist in the Events menu.

“Marth” and Leif, lords of two different but connected worlds, discuss the coming storm. “Marth” is certain of Leif’s success based on Jugrdali historical records, but Leif isn’t so confident…

As the first Tempest Trials+, this event’s structure is a bit different from previous versions. All bonus allies now provide a 40% bonus to your score. The game will also automatically suggest a difficulty level for you based on the strength of your units, and stamina costs have been lowered for all map options.

The final map features Reinhardt as a boss and is based on Thracia 776‘s chapter 22, the same chapter you actually fight Reinhardt in game.

As far as other general changes so, the event will last for only 10 days, and uses the rewards structure of the Mini Tempest Trials, capping at 50,000 points. Here’s a look at the reward highlights:

  • Units: 4★ Finn at 1,000 and 5★ Finn at 15,000.
  • Sacred Seals: Seal Spd 1 at 6,000, Fortress Def 1 at 10,000, and Drive Atk 1 at 20,000.
  • Earth Blessing at 12,500
  • Orbs, Hero Feathers, Sacred Coins, Shards, and Crystals galore!

Tempest Trials+: Thunder’s Fist will fade away into the mists on Tuesday, 1 May.
